Nope. Haven't for a couple months. Funny part is, after the lobotomy, I don't really miss it per se.

Image Oh, ah ha ha, that is so funny, and true in a sense. All the newfangled convenience features are giving the American public a slow lobotomy, like a frog in a frying pan, as they keep getting comfort and convenience features they become addicted and can't go back to the simple life.

I don't know what it is about this French sentence, but something in my head is saying that is gramatically incorrect. Perhaps not supposed to end with alors? I can't remember... :roll: :lol: It's been waaaay too long since I've studied any French, I need to get back in the habit of reviewing now and again so I don't completely lose it.

:lol: :lol: :lol: @ the learning to use a keyboard one.

I used to use Duolingo, but found that the lessons didn't stick as well with me as some other practice things. More recently, I've used Memrise and found it more suited to me.

Love the base model focus. Wish they had cruise though and was available in hatch form. Then I would buy it in a heart beat.
