Hi, Muriel,
I didn't know you were on the web. Glad you got my mail.
Concerning that song about the collector of whisky bottles: Some weeks ago it was reported in some German papers that the prime minister of North-Rhine Westphalia had amused the new federal chancellor (who held that very post before him) by a longish story about a man who collected miniature whisky bottles but poured them down the sink one after the other when his wife objected to this hobby etc. etc.
I thought then I'd heard that story before. But Jesus - shouldn't these men have other worries, and - shouldn't our news hunters??? - All the best, Susanne
