In my first visit to this forum, I have to say that I am extremely disheartened to come upon this discussion. While I am all for pride in the name of your country, there is no need to be demeaning, condescending or rude about anyone else's opinions on other places. This is not a competition to see who will be at the coolest place whenever they choose to celebrate the millenium, but rather a place to share ideas and learn from others. As far as the millemium debate goes, is anyone against having cause for two outrageous worldwide parties in two years? One for the impressionists who like the idea of "the year 2000" and one for the pragmatists who will wait it out. <BR>Call me idealistic.

Elvira, do I detect a twang of sarcasm in your posting? It actually made me laugh out loud so thanks, I appreciate your posting, it was fun. <BR> <BR>Katy, as this is your first visit to this forum I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. Please dont fill your next posting (if you decide to make one) with the sanctimonious text that appeared in your first. Freedom of speech my friend (as long as its not lame). Now I wouldn't call you idealistic, it would probably be something else.

I think anyplace but NYC would be a good place to be. Too dangerous in Times Square!!

I always wondered how far back in time this inky character existed. I see that he/she has been the self-apoointed forum police for a long time.<BR><BR>&lt;&lt;This has nothing to do with a European travel forum. Fodrs should remove this posting immediately.&gt;&gt;<BR><BR>Note the date: 1999<BR><BR>

Geez, I was really rude back then . . .

Tony...<BR>You just made me snort my coke float!<BR><BR>(Coca cola and vanilla icecream, I have no idea how common a drink it is)<BR><BR>GRIN

Has Inky replaced Rex?

Well, Tony, the point is that you're not rude now. See you & Emily in Cincy in a few weeks!<BR><BR>Kavey, how about a Pink Cow? It's red cream soda and vanilla ice cream. Yum. Root beer floats are also known as Brown Cows (at least here in Ohio).<BR><BR>~MaryC : )

MaryC! I have just finished dinner and now I want a root beer float! I will gain weight reading these threads!It is bad enough when I give lists of my fav restaurants in Paris then get myself in the mood so I have to cook these huge fattening dinners for just my husband and myself! And they never taste as good as they did in Paris :(~<BR>C
