I apologize, we were just figuring out where to get brown sugar and what real men don't do....nevertheless, welcome to the forum.
Did we clarify these issues? Please advise asap, feel kinda worried as might need brown sugar for cupcakes or brownies or both. And yep, it's always good to know what real men don't do! ;-)

Welcome to the forum! We've been so busy posting trivial things that we forgot to welcome our newbies.

Thanks for not giving up on us.
Thank YOU, olygirl!

Welcome to EF! I'm sure you'll find loads of people to socialise with in Zurich. Most of the expat Zürchers I've met so far have been almost normal and not too scary

I strongly recommend nipping down to the Viadukt and meeting our resident cheese man (otherwise known as GrumpyGrapefruit). Not only are the nibbles to die for but the company isn't half bad either.

I'd be there every day if given the chance
thank you, mimi1981! the name, GrumpyGrapefruit, says it all! definitely must go and meet this GG in person

Welcome to the Forum, hope you enjoy Zurich, but I think Vienna is much nicer!

None at all just as Mimi said sometimes the posts can be knocked by other topics, i live on the new posts page so if it's knocked off I won't see it.

Welcome! Enjoy the car crash that is EF

Hello Vie

I tend to think of forums like this as walking into a bar. It's interesting to listen to the conversations that are going on, some of the time, and I can drift from table to table if the chat is not my kind of thing. Sometimes, if I've got something to say, I'll elbow my way in and join them. But I don't expect a round of applause when I walk into a bar, (not unless I'm wearing THAT dress) nor when joining a forum. People here seem pretty friendly (I've only been here a week) so dive in and start posting.

Welcome from another newcomer!
will do so! Thank you, axewoman!!

Welcome to the forum. Many people get missed on their first posts: Bit of fun, what was your 1st ever post?
Don't take it personally.

A good starting point to meet members in Zurich is here:
(Unofficial) Thursday Night Drinks at the Viadukt Market
will definitely be there soon! thank you

It's traditional to include a naked photo of yourself on your first post in Introductions. If readers don't see the paper-clip attachment symbol next to your post, then they probably just ignore it and move onto the next one.

It's unfortunate, there's been this misunderstanding, but there's still time to rectify the situation.

We look for ward to your next post (or not?)

(.... oh - and welcome)
the next post is in progress!
thank you

Re: Vienna goes Zurich! :)

Welcome from a Scottish lady. I have shared your trepidation but had some lovely hello's, have arranged to meet a fellow Scot for coffee in the next few weeks and have had some great advice about hairdressers, soft furnishings, language classes and coffee, cakes and culture. Google the latter if you want to meet up with ladies in a similar position.

Have fun
Cat

For doing this. So you don't have to have 5 posts in a row. If you press the little plus with the quotation marks button beside the 'quote' button on all the posts you want to quote, then press the post reply button at the bottom left of the page, then your post count won't increase as quickly...but the forum will be much neater.
