Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

rubber bullets?  I am glad I stayed at home that day.

I'd rather be hit accidentally by rubber bullets than be cowed by such measures.

but being the kind of person who takes an airplane and has the plane catch fire over the ocean, or the brakes fail on my car, or earthquakes when I am on vacation, I wisely chose to take the safe way out.

well, thank you very much for all your welcoming comments.

I am not Swiss however, Fran.  I just live and work here.  I don't think I'll ever get my tongue around Swiss German.
