  1. Jokes

    @krakp Read it as: I've been learning  the German...
  2. Jokes

    @Techsmex Oh, for heaven's sake! I'm dense sometimes, it took me an hour to get it.
  3. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-55101058 It looks like they will have to dig up the minks . 
  4. I too have allergies, mostly to scented products. If I have to use a towel or bed sheets washed in  detergents with perfume I get red and itchy all over, and get a headache .  All my soaps, shampoos, lotions and so on must be fragrance free.  I also react strongly to aftershaves ; why oh why do - mostly young - men pour it on by the pint?  Hairsprays are likewise "breathtaking". I sometimes get itchy bumps and rashes from stress . @cali_girl,  could it be that you feel stressed by the move? I don't mean that that could be the sole reason, but maybe it's a contributing factor?
  5. Tip of the day

    Tee hee! Tip of the day.   
  6. Coronavirus

    @balticus You must have seen that at the time, in spring, everybody - as in health authorities, experts in the field et cetera, were saying that the infection numbers were much higher than what was recorded. How could they not be? Trust the scientists.
  7. Rude receptionist at Doctor's office

    This discussion reminded me of when I had to "translate" what the Brits were saying to the Germans who actually understood and spoke English. The Germans preferred speaking English with me, because they could understand me.   Germans and Swedes, like me, of course had learnt "received pronounciation"/ "Oxford English" in school, and that hadn't  prepared us for live native English speakers. But I had had more practise at the time. I also had to translate between Brits and USians.
  8. Advice needed: Mannheim VS Munich

    The train from Heidelberg to Mannheim takes about 15 to 20 minutes, I think.  Frequent departures if I remember right. 
  9. I miss Lisa13 and Cybil. 
  10. President Donald J. Trump

    So j2 gets his news/info from sites that he himself says are full of nasty stuff. And he believes it's the only trustworthy source. OK.
  11. Brexit: The fallout

    Really john.g? You have never heard of "the luck of the Irish" or of the Irish characters on vaudeville?
  12. What made you laugh today?

    "Everybody loves a chubby dormouse", from BBC :https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-54992101
  13. Brexit: The fallout

    @yesterday Pun intended?   
  14. I did a quick google search for the Democratic Strategy Institute ( which seems legit)  but a lot of posts came up with "fraudulent emails sent" , so maybe it wasn't actually from them? Just saying. 
  15. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Techsmex,dear, you did nothing wrong, and you know it! It's good to have you back.
