Hi to all (hoi zme)

Hi to all (hoi zme),

I'm a bit disgusted with myself that it has taken so long to have the courage to post, but over a number of (many) years this has been THE definitive forum for anything I, or my friends (both English and Swiss) have wanted to know about Switzerland. Hopefully I can return the (many) favours in time for the wealth of information I (we) have received.

Gruss,
De Brit

Re: Hi to all (hoi zme)

To think I used my best grammar as well.....

Too serious maybe? (OK OK OK, I just wanted it to sound sincere).

Have a drink, it's 5 o'clock SOMEWHERE.........

Thanks Sky. After lurking for so long, but now being able to subscribe to threads I really can see why people become addicted to the EF.

Nice Avatar by the way - reminds me of holidays.

All the best.

Re: Hi to all (hoi zme)

Art of EF survival.....
- very thick skin as to avoid emotional bruising
- wicked sense of humour
- remain factual (if one lacks the aforementioned humour)
- talented erudition (there are a few of 'em well worth reading)
- there's lots of teasing to get used to (but it's all kind and friendly)

You sound like a forum veteran (not just EF) which is very encouraging.

I'm a complete novice - absolutely no shame attached, been in CH over 20 years and from some of the posts (judging by people's wit and sense of humour) I actually think I've met some of the posters on here (Agglo LU).

Thanks for the good advice.

Re: Hi to all (hoi zme)

Hello De Brit - where you been? We missed you. Kind of. Not really at all. Just sayin'

Watch your back around here, the animals need to be kept fed...
