    I was in Switzerland twice on vacation from Germany. That is funny you mention Swiss German. I remember it. Also, when I went to the Paris Airshow the French refused to speak to me if I spoke German,...

    Yeah, mine are the brown Clubman types.

    I guess I can tell differences in performance, like vertical performance, throttle position for cruise, acceleration, etc. I think you have to have a wide...

    I bet you're right. I used to have a small pile of that. I wish I had kept it when I moved. I know where to get more at the local university printmaking classroom.
