Celebratory Dinner for Team Thompson

Phil and I went out to celebrate two things!!!

#1 Team Mills has been elected into the Morrow County Clerk of Courts.

For both Phil and I our #1 supporters have always been our mothers. Both of us are very proud and thankful to have such strong, open-minded and well balanced mommies. Today we say Congrats to Vanessa for her unexpected and well received seat as The Clerk of Courts for Morrow County! Give 'em hell bull dog!

#2 Change in the great Country we call our home away from home. Congrats to Barack Obama! We hope you are everything you stood for during the election.

Team Thompson went to a local esstabilshement that is older than the US. Here's some pics... please enjoy! Bierhalle Kropf

That's one big gun... not sure who or what the need that for?!?!

It's Fondue Season in Switzerland, Oh my Goodness!!! I LOVE CHEESE!

After a long day of Apartment searching, Phil and I enjoy some Fondue and Raclette. We may not go #2 for days!

At one point, Phil asked if it's ok to dip the cheese from his plate into the Cheese Fondue. I told him there are no rules in Fondue, you dip whatever you like!!!

As you all know we have made it to Zurich! Yeah!!!

Things we have learned so far:

1. English speaking channels include: MTV or CNN

2. You cannot run the washer and dryer at the same time in Corp housing. Das ist Verboten

3. You can have your dog off a leash, and there's a beautiful park to walk and run your "hund"

4. When someone asks if your hund is castrated, they mean neutered. Just say yes

5. It's really difficult to find the Lake, but it is there.

6. Cars must stop for pedestrians.

7. Person above who likes to walk in heels is actually a man.

8. The only thing that is cheap in Switzerland is: Beer, Wine and Cheese. Everything else is expensive.

9. Everyone greets you as you walk by, very polity say "Grüezi"

10. Last but not least... It is absolutely beautiful here and the air is so fresh!

Please come and visit!

I'm in the process of looking for an apartment. Wish me luck!
