    I just had a shudder at the thought of macaroni cheese. When my kids were young, they loved this horrible gunk you could get in the supermarket dirt cheap, it stunk to high heaven and this horrible...

    Funny you should mention the level of service. My brother-in-law has lived in the US (Boston) for 25 years. He visits Australia once every few years to see family etc. He will often mention...

    Aussies often have a thing about the French, but then again, many aussie tourists are often drunk and obnoxious themselves - little wonder people might act the same back to them.

    I'm certainly not viewing walloons as invaders, nor am I suggesting that the Flemish have not fought back, but they would have fought back because the taalgrens had been moving northwards for over...

    Andrea Camilleri is a very popular crime writer, as we all know, who hails from Sicily. He is known to add the odd sprinkling of Sicilian into his writing, but I do stress, it is just an odd...

    That's a pretty good explanation as to why it has evolved the way it has.

    curiouscat makes a fair point, afterall, it is the Eurasian continent, and it's pretty arbitrary the delineation between Europe and Asia.

    Well, the taalgrens used to go through the extreme North-West of France, well into the 20th century.

    Are there many Dutch speakers left in North-West France? I don't know, but if not, or if there...

    Hi Kirsten, my situation is different because I naturally get a lot of near East and Levantine readings, but mine is an interesting story nevertheless. About a year ago I did my Ancestry DNA, and...
