Just when I thought I knew everything about Jacob! Ooops This is a surprise to hear you want to one day open your own restaurant! Good for you Jacob....so many of us have seen your growth and maturity through the years (as well as your amazing growth in your knowledge of the English language yes ), and I think I speak for all of us that we believe you can truly do anything you put your mind to.Thumbsup You are such a special part of this board, don't ever forget that.

So nice to get to know you even better! Smile


Oh, and the pics are awesome!! Applause

Jacob, I remember when you posted the post that Carol shared again. I always thought it fascinating that you spoke German living in Mexico and then moved to Canada. I think it is great that you want to open a restaurant. Keep us updated on how things are going with that.

Hey, Jacob! What an interesting person you are...and I see you are really "in love" with LHOTP!

Do you know that I had had the same experience than you with the movie in which Albert dies? I couldn't watch it more than twice. Thisnpeisode is too hard for me to swallow...I don't have any brother who died from Leukemia, but I know a few persons who I loved a great deal who died from cancer and this episode awakes too much bad souvenirs to me... Blue

Great photos! I wish I culd take some of these one in my life!

Vanesa. Smile
