    My son plays soccer at his high school, and Croatia became his favorite team to watch.
    I think Eduardo is on his computer wall paper.
    From there, he checked out some language books from the library and later bought some more.
    When I was his age, I tinkered with motorcycles. He tinkers with languages.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    nice to hear that (but to be honest I'm not much of a soccer fan because all of the fan rage and violence connected with that game around here)

    anyhow merry christmass to all of you and sretan božić to your son

    My son typed in the following:

    Nisam baš navijač od ekipa ali točnije mjesta da predstavljaju, i naravno nogomet općenito. Sretan Božić!

    Welcome to the board! My grandmother was from Croatia and my grandfather was from Bosnia. Now I'll have to find the copies I have of their papers to find out what towns they were from.

    a few days ago I was lucky enough to came across an old NSU Quick fork from 1936 (NSU is a German motorcycle company and Quick is one of their older models), the pics are pics just from a testfitting, there'll be some sandblasting and repainting/powdercoating of almost every part of the bike...btw still in search fot the cheapest way to get hold of a 66 bike kit and have it sent to my home (for the moment the shipping is more expensive than the kit itself :( )

    ok, and now those pics

    as far as I know NSU joined up at one point with Auto Union I think and than the Audi was born (maybe I'm wrong?!?), anyhow, the project is defenetly going on, if nothing else I'll pay for that expensive shipping ;)

    unfortunatly it's not my work - it's standar paint scheme for 2004 Felt Red Baron ;)

    the bike will be repainted probably to be a "sidekick" for my car ;)

    also would have to build a roofrack for the thing
