So many good fishy sites are in German, and I . . . don't. . .understand! Google Translate is seriously my hero!

We had a member once who was German but lived here in the States. She said she could speak English well enough but could communicate better in writing and in German. No one here could say much more that Danke, bitte and aufvwiedersehen so she left. That was too bad.

That is a shame that she left :(.

I'm much better at reading German than formulating responses. Simple response/broken German are about all I can do.

When I lived in Kentucky we used to go to this Mexican restaurant and I used to try to speak Spanish to the waiters and manager. They always got a kick out of ut and told me I spoke good Spanish. Lol They appreciated my efforts.

Yeah, a few people spoke or tried to speak basic German to her but it wasn't enough. My dad 's first language was Spanish and I'm mad that he didn't raise us to be bilingual. But when he was a kid they weren't allowed to speak Spanish in school.

So I found out our plans for Christmas Eve. My brother is bringing over some cabbage rolls and mashed potatoes and then going home to spend the evening just him and his wife and we will be by ourselves. 'Sigh '

I'm hoping to mail out my secret snowflake gift today. The weather is supposed to be decent all week then rain Friday or Saturday.

Got my Secret Snowflake package and I should get mine today or tomorrow. I have cleaning to do but don't feel like doing it. No energy. No motivation.

An IBC friend of mine just set up a website that she will use for all her fish stuff like spawn logs, pics of her fish, etc. I'm excited and happy for her.
