Well, I am impressed dear Greg!! Great web site & really nice pics!!! I wanna see some scenes with you in the learn the German phrase "Will You take My Picture??!!" hehe... Hope you have a great 1st day at work...we all missed you at darts (NOT!!!) The machines broke again!!!hehe...again...Luv Anita
Hi Anita! You know I'm the bashful type, but I'll try ot get a few of me in there. My best guess for that phrase in german is "Konnen Sie nehme meinen foto bitte" That's tough to say!!
From Dawn - Sunday, 25th March 2007, 16:17 (GMT)
Hi babe, great pics! Just wanted to take a couple mins to say hello. Hope things go well at work tomorrow.

From Your Mother! - Monday, 26th March 2007, 12:33 (GMT)
Glad you safe and sound! So is Wiesbaden richie rich? Heard
your not any taller than the Germans, but you'd think they would give you some "room" in your room to breathe and move! It's only 8:30am and I haven't had a chance to look at the pictures; will look at lunch! Love Mom
From what I'm told, it's the 3rd or 4th riches city in Germany. Very nice, lots of little shops and pubs. They are very space conscience that is for sure, makes you appreciate the spacious living we have in the States.

Love you and miss you both!

So, just where exactly (as you can) is Gustvaburg? This is such a cool concept! What a country!! Please don't mention goulash!!! (Barf)
It's a 20min train ride southeast (I think) of Weisbaden. Very small town, I looked at a couple appartments there yesterday. Yikes! Not someplace I was comfortable.
From Deuce - Monday, 26th March 2007, 20:47 (GMT)
whazz up!!!! how the hell are ya. how was the trip? how is Germany. what did macomb say? what did verban say. do you miss me?
Hi sweetie! hahahaha

Trip was good, long flight but I slept most of it. Germany is very interesting! you'd like it, not a lot of HVAC places around :). As for Macomb, they still have to vote on it. I tihnk it goes to the board this week. Verben was cool, he said there were officeres that didn't want to grant me the leave. But he veto'd them.
From Aunt B - Monday, 26th March 2007, 22:35 (GMT)
Good to hear from you. Sounds rather interesting in your neighborhood. Will you be finding another place? I hear this one is very small. Not much else for now. Will write again.
Love Aunt B
Hi Aunt B!

Yes, I will be looking for something more permanent. The hotel is nice but very costly and no room to even unpack. Hopefully within the week I can find an appartment. Talk to you soon.
From Tina - Tuesday, 27th March 2007, 12:45 (GMT)
Just thought I would say hi and glad to hear you had a safe trip. Great pics and it looks like a neat city. Good luck with the German!!
Hi Tina! Thanks, yes it is a very cool city, very cosmopolitian. Hopefully I get a chance this weekend to scout out a little more.
From MOM - Tuesday, 27th March 2007, 14:01 (GMT)
Good Afternoon! Did you have a good "power sleep"? Thought your agency was suppose to help you find someplace to stay?
I'm still fighting the jet-lag so sleep has been tough. But its getting better.
From Mom - Thursday, 29th March 2007, 12:00 (GMT)
Hey Greggor!! So how is work?
Whatch ya doin' at work? (or whatcha working on? Nothin' new here as usual! How's the food taste? Have you been out to see anything else? Take care!
Work is good, I am working on the glovebox for the US version. Food at the cafe and hotel are very good and huge protions. I eat so much those two meals I haven't been out for dinner yet!

From Tuuuuna - Thursday, 29th March 2007, 17:55 (GMT)
Guten tag Herr Schlitt! Man, all you seem to write about is FOOD! It's gravy this and gravy that..... hehehehehehe Surprise, surprise, surprise.....
What we want to here about is the good German bier! Hacker Pschorr, Beck's and the infamous St. Pauli's fraulien! Have fun, be safe, watch rugby and don't eat too much, otherwise we'll have to call you Uder Braten. :-)

I haven't said THAT much about the food. But hey, I had some good Schnitzle for lunch, with pommes! So there. Surprisingly nough, there are so many small beweries that I have yet to see Hacher Pschorr or St. Pauli... Becks is everywhere!

Thanks for the note and pass along any Lions news to my yahoo account OK? I'm SO out of the loop!
From THE BOB - Thursday, 29th March 2007, 18:44 (GMT)
hope your haveing a good time! hope you miss my drunking phone calls at 2 in the morning!
BOBBY! You know I miss that the most! Funny thing is, if you tried that now, it would be 8am, and I'd already be at work! How sad... :(

Hope all is well in Fraser FD... Stay Safe
From Dad - Friday, 30th March 2007, 11:55 (GMT)
How Did your first week go? How is wheather? We are slow but getting ton's on estimates, most are for elaborate complicated systems customers want designed, what usually happens is I spend a lot of time designing and pricing and customer finds someone else to install a cheaper price, but thats business! Take care and write when you can, talk to you later. Love Dad
Weather has been good really. Cool at night and in the morning, but must be near the mid 60's and sunny every day except late last night into this morning.
From Mom - Sunday, 1st April 2007, 16:41 (GMT)
Ok, so how is the new digs? You must have an address so what is it? Tell us all about your place! Will you be able to get any English speaking stations on TV? I'm sorry I couldn't hear alot of what you were saying Friday because of the kids, but I got some explainations from Dawn. Talk when you can!
I'll go into detail and post pics soon, as for the tv, I get 500 channels of CRAP! only about 10/15 in English and they are either news or televangelists. UGH
From Joe Fleischman - Monday, 2nd April 2007, 10:26 (GMT)
Great to hear from you, we were afraid you left without a trace. I went through your web site, very nice. This is a great communication tool. You sound like you are having a good time with starting a new temp life over there. GIT ER DONE! (in English that means work hard ,make some bucks and get back to your family)
Good to hear from you too! Hope all is well and everyone is still there. Oh by the way, there is a couple vans here sold by Mitzubishi that have REAR facing seats standard... hahaha
From MOM! - Monday, 2nd April 2007, 20:08 (GMT)
Hey! Just remembered! Dr K went on a beer seminar last October to Germany, if the is any thing you want to know how to say or ask for let me know and I ask him!!
How do you say, "where is the fire station?" hehehe actually I did find a paid-on-call dept but haven't made it there yet.
From Mom - Tuesday, 3rd April 2007, 23:39 (GMT)
Well, did you fall out of Germany, or did the Tsunami get you? Where the heck are you? You didn't have that much to unpack!!!
sorry, no internet at the appartment. Working on that.
From Ernie and Paula - Saturday, 7th April 2007, 21:23 (GMT)
Happy Easter Greg,
The apartments sound interesting. A couple of recs from a friend at work. Go se St . Stephens in Meinz. The windows were done by Chagall. A tasty meal would be currywurst. He also said the people in that area are wine drinkers so we would fit right in, Ernie could be a beer taster and I could handle the wine! Hope you are doing well.
HI Paula and Ernie!!

Happy Easter to you as well. I took a short trip to Mainz just last weekend. I don't know that I saw St. Stephens though, but I will make sure I do next time. It is only a 5 min train ride from me so I plan to go there alot. I've heard that it is the wine capital of Germany! I also found a champaigne producer nearby that I am going to tour one of these weekends. I'll be sure to send home some samples for you guys.

PS you'd fit in great here!
From Your Brother - Sunday, 8th April 2007, 18:15 (GMT)
Guten Taaaaaaaaaaaaagg!! Just like the bud commercial! Thought you could you a little cheering up, Easter can be a very lonely time. No easter eggs hunts, no jelly beans, NO CHocolate BUNNYs!!! Hehehehe! Hang in there, remember, your doing the things that make life exciting! Hope all is well, I'm at home alone today, Heather and the kids are at Sally's, and I have the stomach flu. Life is good! We find out the sex of the baby in two week, here you got pimped on yours. Does'nt really matter, someone is going to have to move! Stay in touch, what else do you have to do! heheh. Seriously, enjoy yourself, remember, this is once in a lifetime oppotunity! Grasp the moment! (very CORNY) Love "THE SCHLITTS/NY"

I tried calling you back for over an hour and kept geting a busy signal. Hope you're feeling better. I'll try calling again this weekend.
From BOOBIE - Tuesday, 10th April 2007, 23:01 (GMT)
forsay me and another classmate of ours were to come over and visit you. where would be a good place to fly into and what are your thoughts on this subject? it's your boyfriend by the way!
Frankfurt Airport... it's a 20min trian ride to Wiesbaden which is where I'm staying. I'd love the visit... bring a air matress though, all I have is a bed and a kitchen table with 2 chairs. :)
From Mom - Friday, 13th April 2007, 18:15 (GMT)
Just found out you got internet; apparently everyone knew before me from the notes! I'm so glad your accessable again, that phone call sucked!!!! All is well. We are really considering the Saturn Aura for the next car.
(details to come-too long for the space) Take care! Love you! Mom
I have access - limited - at work. still not back at the apartment.
From Joe - Friday, 20th April 2007, 18:59 (GMT)
Things are slow here. JLTV has dried up for now. I am starting a CATIA assignment in Livonia. It will be a nice change. Hope all is well with you.
Very nice, out from under Uncle Joe's watchful eye! Take care. I hope everyone still has a job there!
