Re: Angels of this forum: Name & Fame

My vote at the moment goes to Zymogen for the lift to KFC on Sunday. What normally costs me and my wife 39Francs each return by train, she only took 20CHF from both of us for fuel.

She and her friend were great company in the car as well

Jrspet. Always giving selflessly, very helpful, kind and supportive. I am honoured to to have known you before joining the EF and have both witnessed and experienced what it's like to be on the receiving end of your kindness both directly and towards others in real life. Thank you .

Grumpy, for supplying expats with proper cheese (oh and for nicknaming my little girl "smiler").

Pinki for going from a girl I used to pop out with and bump into random strays called Jack, to becoming the Godmother of my daughter and helping me get back on my feet last year.

Pat & Dodger for helping me move house and put my stuff back together for free.

Porsch for being Scottish and not allowing it to hold him back

I won't say why specifically but in no particular order - Nanda, JLP, Ouchboy, Oldhand, Nicky, Swissotter, Grumpygrapefruit, litespeed, Summerrain, edot, Peg A, Sky, Argus, Nil, StirB and I'm sure I've forgotten some people. But they have all given more than they took - thank you.

Re: Angels of this forum: Name & Fame

Grumpy, the cheese, yes.

Gerisherk, for lovely slippers, we love them and wear them. In fact they make our kiddo famous in the creche.

Our lovely book club, and all at our Morges poetry events, it's always fun.

Kodokan for the freezer, marvelous.

Bunch of people for making their way into the hood, DB, MN, the LS crowd...

And then some I wouldn't want to embarrass publicly, thanks. I probably forgot a million of folks. The spunky ones, the ones who can take a joke, the ones who contribute...and the inet wizzards who post funny pics.

Now, since my Oscar speech is over, let's HTFU...

I forgot about Castro and sending me IRN-BRU. The sweet nectar filtered through Scottish steel girders was sublime.

Everyone who came and helped my husband clear out our flat in Basel when we moved and the Salvation Army let us down, even from as far away as Zurich.

Puzzler - for introducing me in the great world of Zurich Hash House Harriers through this forum and for all that fun at his Pub treasure hunts organized for the EF members and the Love quiz event in Devi's bar. Some of you might know him from Shamrock pub where he does his Sunday's quizzes. I am honored to have him as a friend.

Sutter - for having a heart of gold and helping so many people.

I am sure that she would agree that she is sometimes a 'Drama Queen' but her intentions are well-meaning.

This was a recent present to Sutter from her best friend

I'd like to thank Paddy for being a role model. Not a positive role model mind you but just the same.
