Wisdom for the Ages.....In a continued effort to battle the twin evils of Sugar Coating Things and Devil Worship (aka speaking french), I have decided to provide a daily (i.e. when I get around to it) German lesson. Having bored with the normal format, I have decided to turn this batch into a game. I will define a word in German, translate the definition, and award points based on a as of yet undecided upon, fairly arbitrary point system. Only the exact word will count for points and bonuses will probably be given for answering in German and for being the first one to answer. Send responces to firstname.lastname@example.org. If Harvey Mudd, BYU, or the average private Catholic school would concider it cheating, it is not allowed here either (no looking up answers). You are on the honor system.
Jene Zeit, in der unsere Geschäfte gut gehen, unsere Freunde treu sind und unser Glück gesichert ist.
That period of time in which our affairs prosper, our friends are true and our happiness is assured.
That's all for today. And remember, if you win your reward may be Ca$h, a German Lesson personalized to you, or more likely a hearty congratulations.
