    Yes, two. The first being a soda produced by Coca-Cola called Mezzo Mix. I found it in Germany and loved the flavor of Coke & orange to be a very unique taste. I even wrote to Coca-Cola in the mid-90's asking them to produce it in the states.

    The second, also from Germany was the practice in bars and night clubs to mix beer with, well, just about anything. Ein Cola Bier (Coke and beer mixed together) was interesting. I would call it the forerunner of those alcoholic energy drinks they sell these days. But the real deal was beer mixed with fruit nectar. Kirsch bier (cherry + beer) was my fave!!!!

    Thanks for your question Tad.

    I have to say, of all the assignments I've had, Germany ranks in my top 3! I found it to be a very clean country. The food, the history, the music (loved that German Techno)!

    My dad was stationed in Germany when he was in the Canadian Forces as an X-ray Technician. He left just after my mom got pregnant with me and came back home when I was 18 months old.
    He told me it was a nice place and I saw a few photos he had. I remember growing up I used to read his English-German dictionary all the time. It's one language I would love to learn.

    I am an American truck driver. At one point I had a job that would take me into Canada. Most provinces speak English as the primary language. One province the primary language is French. I made an effort to learn a few French phrases so we could communicate in their language. I was the foreigner.

    I am probably going to make people upset. But why do Americans have to learn Spanish to communicate with foreigners that have been in America their whole lives?

    Because we are AMERICA. Because we were the most tolerant and welcoming country back when most others were unwelcoming. Because our whole democracy, our way of life is founded upon giving everyone who comes to our shores (legally), the same right, freedoms, and opportunities that many of us take for granted. Because the inscription at the base of the Statue of Liberty reads:
    Give me your tired, your poor
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore
    Send these the homeless tempest-tossed to me
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

    Because we were the standard by which others saw religious, cultural, and ethnic tolerance. And because this whole country is made up mostly of people from foreign lands. Because I along with each and every veteran who has come and gone and will be have fought for our way of life. Because we are the torch bearers of unity.

    That's why.

    Thank you for your service I too am a veteran.
    I agree with that idea of acceptance but I believe it has been taken too far.

    Does this mean than Americans need to learn 150 or so languages just to communicate with each and every ethnic group? You being in radio should understand the importance of communication.
    Also does this acceptance mean that if it is ok to beat a woman in Syria is it ok to beat a woman in the USA?

    Thank you for your service as well.
    It couldn't hurt for us to learn a few more languages. Maybe if we had, 9/11 could have been stopped before it started. But your point about learning Spanish shouldn't be taken to the extreme. We share a common border with Mexico so Spanish is a language we should know/be taught as our nearest neighbors speak it. Coincidentally, their school children in mexico are taught English from a very early age.
    And acceptance of others' culture is fine as long as it doesn't conflict with our laws and societal norms. So no, just because you beat your woman in Syria you don't get to do that $3!+ here.

    I agree that we should should learn about other cultures and languages. The American diversity is one of the things that I love about living here.

    But I believe that in order to work and live in this country you must learn the American language.

    When I was in Korea some service members fell in love with Korean women. In order to marry and bring that woman back to the United States she had to speak English fluently and not just baby English. I totally agree with the Armys policy.

    And I understand your point about the near by neighbor. But it is still another country and you need a passport to go there (i may be wrong on that but you do need a passport to go to the Jamaica which is a close country, just alot longer to swim)

    So Mister BEK my friend, I think that we stand at opposite ends on this issue so as my very wise mother says all the time..Lets agree to disagree.

    (Waving truce flag)

    I don't see where we are on opposite sides here. I TOTALLY AGREE that if you come to this country (or any other country) to live, you should speak the language. That was never a question posed. I just think it would do our own country some good to learn other languages, especially with our global economy and communications.
    And the last time I checked, which was admittedly more than 20 years ago, you didn't need a passport to go and come from Mexico. All I had to show was my military ID at the border but that was in simpler times. And again, what travel documents you need for various countries is an agreement between the countries. Most do require a passport.

    There was a time when we (Canadians) went across the border into the US all we needed was our Canadian birth certificate. Now we need a passport to come into the US.
    I'm not 100% sure on this but I think it is the same for Americans coming into Canada.

    These days, I'm sure folks need a passport to go everywhere.

    So, to get back to any subjects of this board: does anyone have a Fat Sexuality (or just plain sexuality) question?

    Ok I guess I misunderstood your stance.
    When I delivered in Canada I had a special pass issued by the US and approved by the Canadian government.
    When I traveled to Korea and back I also used my Army ID.
    A quick google says that if you fly to and fro Mexico you must have a passport. To walk or drive across you only need proof of residency to come back to the US.

    Well, that's a funny thing. All things considered, if things are done right, there should not be much need for any extra 'lube'. But in the past, I loved baby oil. And recently I've been turned on to the notion of bacon grease!
