BD, I was only trying to complement you for your knowledge but I guess that backfired, too? I meant english is hard to learn because of all the slang. That is what I keep hearing from my friends from Mexico and Russia. Please don't feel like you have to be defensive. That is not what I am doing here...

gailr, Thank you for the warm welcome! As usual I see your humor. I think I fit in here in GA. I think people here in the south are courious about me. They can never figure out what ( for lack of a better term) race/ backround I am. I think it is funny. It did keep me on guard for the first few year...

I was simply referring to some posts made by BD and others on Mon. May 29 '06 re: why we should thank a soldier. I was referring to why we as Americans (in general) thank our Soldiers for being able to continue speaking English. It is because we are still a free country. I was not referenceing any o...

I happen to agree with "stargzer" about the efforts of our great troops here in the good ole U S of A some 60-odd-years ago. I don't know German but this message was clear-lol. By the way, didn't a lot of Germans fleeing war crime tribunals flee to Brazil after WW ll? I also thought most Brazilians ...
