    Ευχαριστώ. Ποτέ δεν ξέρω που μπορώ να γράψω στα ελληνικά!

    That's Greek to me.

    Thanks. I never know I can write in Greek!

    It's OK, if you also don't mind to be referred as ελκυστικότητα in Greek conversations all the time. However, there is a danger that this forum would turn into another Tower of Babel and Confusion of Tongues as everybody (including both of us) tries to use his mother tongue for communication with one another later on.

    Tervetuloa, Reedak.



    * I'm prone to dropping the occasional Nordic phrase myself, but the welcome on this fine site is genuine. Just be sure to leave your boots and skis outside the front door.

    Too many smart geezers. A man would get intimidated.

    Very nice, and fitting for contemplation on a forum.

    Thanks for your welcome.

    A man may get intimidated, but a little child may not.
