  1. Sabina,

    I was sorry to read about your mother’s death about 4 years ago. I just read your post about this on your website. I know she loved you a lot and was proud of you. I hope everything is going good for you. Keep up the good work on the writing and photography.

    Your friend,

    Benjamin Terry Williams

  2. Sabine – I nominated you for a Readers Appreciation Award. See my latest blog post “They Like Me! They Really Like Me!” for the acceptance requirements (just a few tasks) 🙂


  3. Sabine,

    It sounds like you may be getting near finishing your dissertation. I wish you luck. I’ll cross my fingers for you…

  4. Hallo Sabine,

    ich muss umziehen und habe im Keller Deine Kisten gesehen.
    Darin sind unter anderem Urkunden und Zeugnisse.
    Wenn ich es nicht wegwerfen soll, sag bitte ganz schnell, ob Du jemanden hast, der das abholt oder wo es hin soll.

    Grüße von Silvia
