Topic: May Day Eve (Czech Republic)
Posted: Saturday, April 30, 2016 7:31:20 AM
This is all tied up with Walpurgis Night which is 6 months away from Halloween. In my part of Germany, some young men still go into the forest to steal a branch (but not of pine) & hang ribbons on it and put it outside the house of a girl they admire. There is usually a placard with her name on it.

What about "Have you talked to a lawyer who could tell you your rights".
Topic: George Frideric Handel's Oratorio Messiah Debuts (1742)
Posted: Wednesday, April 13, 2016 2:48:41 AM
True Johann Sebastian Bach was a wonderful composer of church music. Germans still love it. The Messiah does stand apart from his other oratorios. People love to sing the "Hallelujah" chorus. It is inspiring and joyful.

I find it very sad that these people know nothing of Jesus Christ.
Topic: New word for advanced learners

I think Wiktionary explains it better, there are also links to "moot point" and "moot court". I agree it is better to use debatable or irrelevant to make it clear.
Topic: MISMATCH & MATCH UP

I agree about the repeats in Mismatch. Ingress and egress have turned up about 4 times.

There is also a Wikipedia page for Kate Douglas Wiggin.

The link goes to Wiggin, Kate Douglas Smith and all it says about her is "American writer". It seems she wrote "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm". You can find the article about the book in Wikipedia under https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebecca_of_Sunnybrook_Farm

A well written article.
