Please Don't Embarrass Yourself on My Blog


Usually I try to be very neutral on my blog and not try to offend anyone for no reason. However, sometimes there IS a reason and I find it impossible to keep my mouth shut!

Such is the case this morning when I read the comments I got on my "Sweet Story" post from yesterday.

Monika from Austria near Germany wrote:
there is no East und West Germany since many many years, please update
your politicians knowledge about Europe
thanks a lot.
My response is simple:

Monika,
If you would read the entire posting about the East and West Germany templates (which was linked to the post you commented on) then you would see WHY I made an East and West German template. Perhaps YOU should update your ENGLISH.

Hey Monika,

I'm the one who asked for a West Germany specific template.

I have pictures from when West Germany was a separate country that I wish to scrap.

Scroll down and read everything before you post. Get a German/English dictionary if you can't understand everything or try a website translator like BabelFish. There is a unified Germany template available.

Maybe you prefer to ignore that Germany was ever divided, but I do not. I hope you are not one of those who ignore the Holocast, too, or deny that it happened!!

I'm playing catch up (again lol) on your wonderful templates. Thank you for taking the time to make them and for listening to all our requests! The "Sweet Story" was very sweet! Love the layout you did with the German template. I have collected all your wonderful state templates - some to be used now - some to be saved for the "someday" when I get to travel there. I plan on doing the same with the countries - I have big travel dreams lol. Hope you have a wonderful week! :D

I love your templates and am glad you don't let nasty comments deter you or stop you from being so generous. I, for one, am glad that you do not close your eyes to history. Germany was a divided country for several decades and a lot of things were going on. I know what I am talking about because I grew up in what was then West Germany. Don't let an Austrian "ignoramus" upset you. Maybe some people need to be reminded where Hitler was born???? Afte all, the divided Germany was a result of WWII.
