I don't have a lot of time to write now as I am busy skiing in Tyrol.

If you speak any language other than English, I have a request for you.

To the 100s anniversary of the birth of my father I'd like to get the wikipedia page translated to a 100 languages.

Could you help?

In any case, enjoy the entries in this edition!
