Just say cheese

In the German-speaking part of Switzerland, it is traditional to watch "Dinner for One" on TV on New Year's Eve. Our Swiss neighbor does it every year. Don't ask me why a film in English is a German tradition, but it is. She even watches it in the original English.

Speaking of dinner, I've had cheese for dinner for the last two nights. Thursday night, we had fondue at our neighbor's and there was so much cheese in the pot that it broke. Then, last night, we had raclette. Six people ate 28 pieces of the stuff. The result? According to Mr. One Big Yodel, "I have such a big ball of cheese in my stomach that it is radiating heat like the sun."

What a way to celebrate the season in Switzerland.

Alles Gute zum neuen Jahr from One Big Yodel. Prost.

This is actually making me homesick for Switzerland. I do miss that cozy-cozy holiday atmosphere there.
Aloha from Hawaii and Happy New Year.

My husband has me watching Dinner for One now too. I find it odd that a short English film gain popularity. Along with hardly anyone in Britain knowing about it.

It's also a popular film to watch in Sweden too. We learned that this year when we had Swedish/American couple over.

Traditional [URL=http://www.northfacedenalijacket.org/#1099]north face denali sale[/URL] is similar one particular another in addition as more than staffed. People who wear [URL=http://www.northfacedenalijacket.org/#919]links[/URL] just like walking package. Nevertheless at that time, people have to put on top of all the ordinary model. In 1998, Eral made new manner to solve this marketing dilemma. So Eral may be the ideal choice for female friends.
