Prettige paasdagen & Happy Easter!
As far as I know, in the Germanic languages only English and German use the word "east" for easter. Otherwise it's pasen, påsk, peaske and so on, clearly derived from Jewish Pesach
Err, Florida you said, that's somewhere in that country between Canada and Mexico isnt'it? Some people think it's an important country. Sure they do import a lot! Anyway, it has strong European roots. England has its horse races, The US have their president races. The difference is that horses only throw mud to the horses behind them.
I was asking myself, what will happen when the Americans find out John MacCain's relatives sell French Fries?
Or that mister hug-a-bee had a trio with some mister Haggard and a call-girl from New York, not hugging a bee, but ....
Well, talking about a trio and New York, they recently found out the current senator of New York was close by when her clown back in 1997 or so had a date with a volunteer.
But ... how close?
I never did understand that cigar, but with Hillary close by ... I mean ... man are not that versatile like women, so probably he did use an aid to please all. Hillary and Monica, that makes an Illy Harmonica, sounds neither like a saxophone nor a harmonica.
Err, the sub topic was French Fries.
Well, a Fries from my native Dutch province Friesland slowly is turning into a French Fries. That is, being a truck driver, the French police three years ago found drugs in his truck, of which he insists not to have known of and not to be guilty for. I understand France wants to import Fries people, but the truck driver himself has different thoughts, not being able to pay a lawyer, he desperataly is occupying a French cell.
I starting artist close by did produce a somewhat country / pop five track CD and donates the ten Euros revenue for the good cause.
So, it's already Good Friday, If you want to do something good, let me know, I'll send you a CD (four English songs, one Dutch song) when you pay 10 Euros plus postal charges. For the European Union the postal charges are Euro 2.80
When you come to the Nijmegen powwow April 26th, I can bring one for you, so just 10 Euro's. But let me know!
Chocolate Easter eggs could bring pimples, CD's don't! It's still not too late to make up your mind.
Have a good Good Friday!
..... well, perhaps pasen, pasqua, påsk and so on, too much does look like passport ...

Happy Easter to you too, dear Bruna, and to you all folks!
Here's my "Easter Bunny" (I hope the picture will be visible):

Sunny but cold and windy in Cagliari these days! It's an early Easter this year and the weather is not helping at all!
Comunque, un grande caldo saluto a te.
All the best to everybody

Looks like more X-mas over here... freezing cold (it was snowing few hours ago!), miserable and wet. Send some FLO-sun over here, will ya Tex!
Happy Easter to all
I wasn't exactly dreaming of a White Easter, but if the forecasts for the weekend are right, we might just get one...
Happy Easter anyway!

| ¡Felices Pascuas desde México! || Mar 22, 2008 |
I 'm celebrating by eating chocolate ice-cream in the absence of eggs made of chocolate.
As long as it is chocolate I think I'm on the safe side
Happy Easter from chilly Mexico City

| Happy Easter from London! || Mar 22, 2008 |
Happy Easter to you too, Bruna and to all Proz friends!
Here in London it is raining and nearly snowing.... so it looks more like Christmas than Easter.
A warm hug to everybody!

A man is walking on the beach and finds a bottle. After he head opened it, a fairy came out offering him to make three wishes come true. Guess what! He wants a nice car, 100,000 Euro and to become irresistable to women.
Whoosh, there's the car
Whoosh, there's the money
Whoosh, the fairy changes him into a ..... box of chocolates.
...maybe a box of...chocolate Easter bunnies?

| My chocolate is melting || Mar 23, 2008 |
Despite the fact that this is the earliest Easter I have ever experienced, in fact, just about the earliest date possible, it is also the warmest ever. Today 33º in Jerusalem, according to the newspaper, and it certainly felt like it (that's 91º F!!). I talked to my family in Germany and the US and it was snowing there!
Downside – my chocolate is melting. Here, we get to celebrate Easter again (Greek Orthodox) in 5 weeks!
| Happy Holi and Id too || Mar 24, 2008 |
By a queer coincidence we are getting Holi, Id and Easter all in a row. It is great to have so many festivals of different religous groups one after the other.
