"Neues" auf der Homepage. Die Bilder stammen zwar schon vom Herbst 2007, aber da ich mit der Pflege der Homepage etwas schludrig geworden bin habe ich sie erst jetzt eingestellt.In der Bildergalerie gibt es Bilder von einer Wanderung durch den "Dog-Canyon" bei Alamogordo.

Es wäre klasse, wenn ihr euch in das Gästebuch (Guestbook) eintragen könnt. Für Kritik und Anregungen bin ich immer offen !!! Beachtet dabei, dass ihr vor dem Absenden des Gästebucheintrages den Code eingeben müsst, der euch auf der Gästebuchseite gezeigt wird (Gross - und Kleinschreibung beachten - gebe zu, ist manchmal schwer zu erkennen).

 

 

 

Hu's on first

 

Hier ein gutes Beispiel, was Sprache auch im Englischen anrichten kann. Dieses Gespräch wurde von Jim Sherman geschrieben, nachdem Hu Jintao zum Führer der Kommunistischen Partei in China ernannt wurde.

Condi: Yes, sir

George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.

Condi: Kofi?

George: ALL RIGHT! With cream and two sugars. NOW get on the phone.

(Condi picks up the phone)

Condi: Rice here.

George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls too. Maybe we should send some to the guy in China. And the Middle East. Can you get Chinese food in the Middle East?
