Hi Becky - Sounds like youll will have a wonderful time! Czech and Then Some is a good group. Yes, the jeadanecky term was used frequently in my family too. I would guess it kind of means oh,my goodness. My mom always says 'yay, yay' too, which seems to mean she is kind of unhappy with what she heard or something like that. It's funny, when you try to translate it to English, it does not seem to have the same effect. Have a great time! Best wishes to the young couple too! Julie Herzik Matus

>you might want to come by on the 10th and help us all celebrate.
>By the way, Tracey and Jared are leaving 10 days after the wedding to spend 5

>She is also doing a historical independent study on architecture, as well as,
>one class at the University in Innsbruck. Not bad -- a 5 month honeymoon in
>Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, etc... By the way, it also helps that
>Jared is fluent in German.
