such came up, why doesn't everybody say where there from, what languages they speak, and something else of interest? I'm Dan Sulani. Born and raised in a small town in the Great State of Ohio. Never thought of myself as a Yankee (Although "Southerness" penetrates quite a distance north of the Ohio River, I never thought of myself as a Southerner either.) I'm 53, now living in Israel and working as a Speech-Language-Pathologist. BTW, in reference to the Interstate Highway thread, I am extremely familiar with the subject: back in my student days, during one summer vacation, I helped _build_ I-90 which runs across northern Ohio! I speak English and Hebrew. I also learned (to various degrees of fluency) French, German, Russian, Sanskrit, Quechua, and Swahili. My conlang is called rtemmu. Sorry, no website so far. Music --- well, I'm very ecclectic. I'm a child of the American 60's so I like the Beatles et al, I like classical music, Country and Western, Jazz, folk music from everywhere, Arabic music, music from the various Asian countries, really everything! I'm kept up to date about recent bands by my kids and I get a decent supply of loud music courtesy of the nice neighbor in the next building who treats the whole neighborhood to concerts with speakers taller than I am (I've seen them!), and when he really gets going, he vibrates the buildings for a hundred meters (at least) in every direction. Closed windows and earplugs don't work: the vibrations go right through the skull to the inner ear! I could definitely live without whatever it is he is putting out! I play trumpet for fun, but not a lot lately due to lack of time. Dan Sulani -------------------------------------------------------------------- likehsna rtem zuv tikuhnuh auag inuvuz vaka'a.
