Wow, beautiful mood! At this time of the year in Germany people often say, that the angels bake cookies, when the sky is burning red. angel

Funny, cookie memories have often to do with mom's and the smell that came out of the kitchen during christmas time.
(You absolutly gobsmacked me with the german answer. You got help from Mr.Google, or???)

Lol ! smile 
In the office I work, we once had an IT-Admin from the states. He never talked a word german, so I always thought he is not able to and we talked in english. After some years he said something, what made me suspicious and I asked him whether it could be, that he understands every single german word we are talking. He was grinning and said 'But don't tell anybody...'
So, when you answered in german, I remembered this and feared, you might be a german/english simultaneous translator, who just want me to practise my english.   grinning

Btw Joe, something what google don't tell you, is: You have to be careful with the usage of 'Mein Schatz' in german. You can't use it like the english word 'my Darling' or 'my Dear'. I know in the US every waitress call you Darling or Dear, but in german 'Mein Schatz' is usually reserved for lovers (romantic way), or family members, or little children and pets. My parents used to say 'Schatz' to me, and when
the neighbour cat comes for a visit I often say : Hallo mein Schatz.
Translated into english Schatz means Treasure. It's something very, very precious. Gollum from Lord of the Rings refers to the ring as "mein Schatz" (in german). I have no idea what he says in english.

Schatz is also used, when somebody is doing you a great favour. Than we say: Du bist ein Schatz!! What means 'You are too kind, I will never forget what you have done for me.'
So, if you ever meet some germans or visit germany, don't call everybody 'Mein Schatz', you could get into a lot of trouble. smileYou can use: 'Meine Liebe' (female) or 'mein Lieber' (male), that is comparable with my dear and more harmless. ;-)

Lesson learned, my friend! (I had typed in "sweetie", which we use here very casually)

Thanks, Peter. Obviously adjusted things in Lightroom, thought maybe I overdid it a bit...
