Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
interestingly, shortly before I moved here, Americans bought the local Groh factory.  I think they make bathroom fixtures and the like.  I understand that subsequently 200 workers lost their jobs, which is quite a hit for around here.  I think it is part of the reason we have a lot of unemployed workers and a large pool to draw from if the employed workers get too "uppidy".
