Re: Shout out to...Message Board

Aaaaaaa, we've just got an on-air shout out on a national www.radio1.cz, by a fab DJ we've been listening to for years!

I will shamelessly plug him here, his show with his 70yr old Dad was great today. Douglas is super cool and learned Czech in an unbelievable quality. Nobody does that! Douglas Arellanes formerly of LA, shout out back. Keep inspiring with some fab tunes.

Re: Shout out to...Message Board

A huuuuuge shout out to my 84 year old prof who in the midst of professoring on-line, zoom teaching, webinars, grants, thesis management and publishing...found enough time to check on us here. <3 I get afraid to get in touch with people these days.

Re: Shout out to...Message Board

Biiiig shout out to our Czech darling Ester Ledecká who got another medal in a discipline that was never her priority (she always trained and represented snowboarding, skiing was a bit of a fluke, just to see how she would do at the last winter games), winning the world gold in super-g today. Yayyyyyy! Loved her noises. Her dad is a famous singer. She never cared for popularity of her family.

Gratulujeme! amazing how sporty (at all levels) the czech nation is -skiing, snowboarding, climbing, canooing, kayaking... even if they have only 'mild nature' - when compared to their surrounding countries.
Pozdravy z Prahy

From Prague???? Say hi to everything from me...especially the opera, guláš and xmas cookies! So much music and culture, though now on hold. Don't forget to get a live carp and put it in your bathtub before killing it and making schnitzels out of it. Also, xmas is 3 days there.

And sporty - so true. And mild nature is something that the nation values, in a stoic way. We invest only in stuff that matters, even our emotions, good or bad. And then it's a compliment, an investment.

Pozdravy ze Švajcu! Stay safe and have some "medvědí mlíko" (milk with rum and honey).

Ester, go go go go gooooo.

Niedźwiedzie mleko (bear milk) concept sounds very tempting in wintertime

Ahoj !
Ano, Opera is closed but I cannot complain, my lovely Neighbour is one of the leading opera baritone singer in Czech... so I pop by every second day when I'm here for coffee and he practices !

And yes, medvedi mliko...medovina & medovnik are my basic staples here for winter

Re: Shout out to...Message Board

Medovník....yay yay yay yayyyyyy. It's magic. Pain d'épices reinvented. All baritones are amazing. My neighbors don't mind me practicing, either.

Medovnik. I salivate. I miss the walnutty taste.



You meant 'mild nature' as environment to train in, didn't ya. Lol...that too. Though I still hear my people shouting at me at the door, me going for a run, 'be very careful'

To all the people who sacrificed a bit this year and stayed home and/or didn't get together in large groups for the holidays.

And to all the medical workers who try to help save lives every day. <3

Re: Shout out to...Message Board

To a fun 2yr old baby who decided to lock his parents out on their balcony, in a lockdown'ed appartment block in CZ. Without their cell phones. Police saved them after a good period of time, frozen to the bones.

What is it with babies and keys..

To fellow teachers, confined to online interraction..May the force be with you!



This one gets an A, though, I think, for his skills.

Re: Shout out to...Message Board

Shout out to people in 7 CZ villages that just got destroyed by a tornado. I was bewildered by the recent Swiss one, and right when I sent pics home this week, there was a tornado in Moravian region of CZ. RIP. My thoughts to impacted families. Slovakia and Austria sent help through their special forces.
