Not another war

Today is the 70th anniversary of the german assault on Poland. I can´t say which war was more cruel, since Belgium was visited by the Boches twice in the last century for each time 4yrs. So, we have no good meaning of germans still, my Dad even wasn´t allowed to speak german in Kindergarden until my Grandma moved back to Germany and he eventually learned the language, which I still refuse to speak though I can understand it and even speak(with a hard accent). Laters Pilgrim...sorry for the weird post last nite.

Why do you refuse to speak German?

You're allowed to do weird posts, after all it is your blog!

@ Sammi, par c´que bien!:-) ...@ Michelle, that one made basically no sense, so I deleted it, even though I had a comment on it.

Well, if you need some inspiration for other offensive terms for Germans you could look at here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terms_used_for_Germans#Boche_.28offensive.29

I do neither see a reason to refuse learning the German language. At least no historical reason.

That would be like refusing to learn English because of the Great Famine.

Interesting, I think there's a very similar sentiment towards the Japanese amongst the older Chinese generations.
