Bread FTW! Yours, Carsten [1] In my dialect of German what I mean here is called 'Kreppel'. In other dialects, these pastries are called 'Berliner' or 'Krapfen'. Kreppels are balls of yeast dough (I think), filled with a good blot of fruit jam and have sugar on the outside (that is added *after* frying, just like the jam). [2] *shudder* This is formed after German "Mein Lieblingsbäcker ist vier Straßen weiter" (My favourite baker is four streets further). I'm not sure if you could say it that way, but, heck, spoken language is not necessarily grammatical! -- "Miranayam kepauarà naranoaris." (Kalvin nay Hobbes) Palayena, Sirpang 4, 2316 ya 22:16:26 pd
