I'm American , teaching university English in the Black Forest in
Southern Germany near the French and Swiss borders. I can see

Orange County visiting my kids. I plan to settle in Boston or
Chicago eventually. If I find someone here on OKC, I'd stay in the
US and not go back to Germany.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much people, myself included, are too quick to judge people by
what they have before we find our who they are. I saw a man
