They're selling real estate and vacation homes. I think. I haven't used my German in a long time.

Hmmm... Is that the secret FBI assignment, Paul? Espionage at the German consulate? Hmmm.....

Paul's got it. Lots, apartments, vacation homes etc in Switzerland.

Now, why would they pick the long-awaited springy blooming month of April to sell vacation homes in Switzerland?

Don't feel bad, Jen. On my blog today, I received this comment:

"Der kreuzen sind nicht gut. Sie mussen rechts um gehn. dus scheisse."

Which, in very illiterate German, seems to be saying "The cross is no good. And your blog is shit."

I guess their schools are as bad as ours.
