I find it interesting Paul. I love the different way you say things like biscuit, which I assume is a cookie.
Thanks for allowing us to know you better.

This much be like a picture. No one likes a picture of themselves. Everything you say is interesting to us!

But we are truly seperated by a common language. Here in the south we eat our biscuit with sausage and gravy!!

Thanks for doing this Paul. I love everything I learn about you.


New Beginnings said...

I meant to tell you I have loved the Earth Children series too but never have I waited so long for a series to finish!! I read Clan of the Cave Bear nearly 30 years ago and STILL the series hasn't finished. The last one came out in 2002 and she was pregnant! I want a conclusion!!!

I enjoyed reading this Paul. I'm glad you asked Cassie to post this. *smiles*

C.C said...

Oh Paul., your answers would have been so much more interesting.

OK, Google here I come.

*heavy sigh*

Hi Cassie!

C.C said...

A greengage is a sweet plum, considered to be a great fruit for dessert. They are a cross with an Asian plum and beyond that I can't remember, other than, they're really a gorgeous green and are from France.

Vienna Schnitzel is a breaded and fried veal cutlet.

Now we all know.

The Greengage sounds really interesting. I wonder if I can find them here on the left coast.

Um, hi again Cassie!

Cassie said...

Thank you all for coming by. Paul, dear brother, I hope you know you are welcomed to post anything here any time you would like!
