I've always been interested in languages, and as I've learned I've tried to dig into the history of the words. Like learning about church slavonic and the Russian language. Once you've dug into that history, you begin to see that almost all languages are logical (and beautiful) in that way.

I love Sara Takanashi , as a fan not a stalker.

We don't get a lot of lasting snow cover because of the way the Gulf Stream warms our climate.
There are a few places such as the tops of the Cairngorms that do but it's never as good as the Alps and they are so near a Ski industry has never grown here.
We had one Ski jumper in the Olympics, famous as he was so bad Eddie (the Eagle) Edwards.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.
