  1. Coronavirus

    @fraufruit and @El Jeffo, It is very promising that following vaccination a significant number of long haulers experience an abatement of symptoms.  I have a friend who knows a previous long-hauler, post 💉, who is now her old self again.  👏🏼
  2. Oktoberfest 2021 cancelled!!

    Not gonna happen. And who cares?  Everyone knows it’s just a knock-off and not „The Oktoberfest“
  3. Oktoberfest 2021 cancelled!!

    I don’t think Milwaukee, not to mention loads of other towns in the Midwest, will be changing the name.  😂
  4. Only in America...

    I’ve can’t believe how many Germans I meet who rave about flying to Florida numerous times and visiting Disney World.  The bottom line is that people everywhere are attracted to this stuff, which is why these theme parks are an international phenomenon.  Not my thing, but 🤷‍♀️.
  5. Coronavirus

    There will be many ongoing kinks to work out.  Currently the official recommendations are all over the map as to how long someone with with Covid should wait before getting vaccinated (🇺🇸-2 weeks, 🇩🇪-6 months). 
  6. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Being introduced to Lady Daphne by my uncle.
  7. Not as long as he has an audience, which he did (cheering Mar-a-Lago guests 😱).  Lock him up please🙏.
  8. Only in America...

    I have a close friend in Germany who is married to her first cousin.  And my German husband’s older brother is also his first cousin.  😂 
  9. Only in America...

    😂 I thought it must be her uncle.
  10. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

    My devices ask which English to use, 🇬🇧 🇺🇸 🇦🇺...  It feels like they sometimes switch without asking me too.  Why did Trash suddenly change to Bin?  Or the Text predictor tells me Flavor is wrong , ...  😂  Luxury Problems.
  11. Conspiracy theorists

    The school owners, the Centners, are buddy-buddy with the anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.  They hosted him as well as a Long Island pediatrician who advises against masks and vaccines.  Can’t make this stuff up. 🤦‍♀️
  12. Why are you unhappy today?

    Words don’t suffice.  I am extremely sorry for your loss.
  13. Switching from German to American school system

    What grade one is in isn't really relevant in HS outside of a social expectation. One needs a set of minimum required courses and credits to graduate. That's all. Many people complete those requirements in fewer than 4 grades.  And then they can choose to remain or move on.  In university towns and at community colleges it's common for kids to start taking college courses as early as 9th grade.  A HS junior generally ranges in age from 15-17, depending on the age at which one entered school, which varies by state of course. 😂  I would focus less on the "grade" and more on where the child is most likely to adapt well.  Some kids in that situation may want to jump ahead while others will want to start off at an easy level and get their social bearings.  Based on your thoughtful questions I expect you will do a good job reading the kids' needs.
  14. Switching from German to American school system

    Yes.  We sang the Star Spangled Banner too.  In 5th grade we had a kid named Colin with us from Northern Ireland.  At the end of these things he would say “and God save the queen.“  😂
