As I wrote to you in a private e-mail on 12 November 2007, I "...compliment you on your English. You express yourself very well in English -- much better than I could ever hope to speak, much less write, in French." By the way, I'm one of the few (seulement?) people who flies le drapeau tricolore a le jour de la Fête Nationale de la France chaque 14 Juillet (see how badly I do?!). So, misunderstandings are well understood.
No one, especially myself, would ever think of anyone as a yokum much less a Frenchman (mais un Anglais peut-être).
No idea how the accent marks will appear when you see this. Anyway, I'm glad that cleared things up a bit. Bonne Année (not sure if that's quite right either). Happy New Year!
May all be at peace.
He should not kill a living being,
nor cause it to be killed,
nor should he incite another to kill.
Do not injure any being, either strong or weak, in the world.
