Australia to compete in Eurovision 2015
Oh dear, ahm, this comment is...must refrain. But seriously: suppose they took 10 and 12 points from CH and the song was bad. At the end of the day, they couldn't have gone too far. You must have a pretty "good"/likeable song to get at…

Are you Gluten intolerant/Celiac?

Hi, thanks for replying. Work in an academy was for me a means to an end. I originally planned on studying in Switzerland to be a public school teacher. I'm still not decided, but perhaps I will do my masters and teaching qualification…

Landlord making changes to the property

Most of us foragers and gatherers learnt as babe in arms, with our parents- so it comes very naturally. The leaves of lilly of the valley are indeed similar from a distance, and poisonous- but once you know the difference, you just cannot…

Yep, same for me. I went through the tunnel at Christmas, paid online in advance, and have received the CHF 107.06 fine today. The warning letter is written in German... so I am going to pretend I don't understand it ;-)
