    Sadly, I don't have a subscription but this sure looks neat!

    For instance, I learned a new word- quill pig! It's a porcupine :b

    And a weaner house is a temporary house usually given or used by newlyweds on farms, from the verb to wean and not hotdog! Lol

    nice to know that a BABUSCHKA is more than a grandmother.... though fun and interesting to read...special; some of the explanations where the word is being used or where it originates from.
    hotdog is also called WIENERS from the City of Wien,Vienna, where the butcher from FRANKFURT (only in Austria these sausages are being called Frankfurter) made this now famous sausages for the first time after he moved to there and set up shop.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....
