I've sort of thought since I joined this site that lots of people have died off.
Boredom. It says there are 6781 members with over 12,000 topics. But many have
just died for want of contribution. I like it here, however, and enjoy all
you folks, and am so appreciative for the help I've received over the months.
Blessed new year to you all.


We get a lot of what might be called drive-by posters, folks who come in with one question and are never heard of again. There are others who drop out through changed circumstances or a desire to leave the net entirely. Some change screen names for whatever reason. As far as I know we've only had one death, wwh, AKA Dr. Bill.

Yes, some Southwestern Sauerkraut with Australian "rollmop salad " (whatever that might be) would do nicely.

roll-mops are rolled pickled herring. Never saw one in a salad.

Would that be sauerkraut with frijoles negros y salsa enchilosa?

I see good possibilities in your responses: I could call myself a "soloist," but I'd have to keep explaining that I don't play a musical instrument. I'd be happy to call myself an "einzelganger," but I'd still have to go through all that explaining. (Of course, "doppelganger" is widely understood.) "Claustrophile" has great potential. As a word, I find it pleasing. However, it isn't perfectly accurate because I don't mind being alone in wide, open places.

How do you feel about a new English word? What's your opinion of "disanthrope"? It doesn't imply hatred, but disaffection is implied. I eagerly await your comments. Without your support, I'll have to go through life as a pleasant einzelganger.

Never saw that either. We have them for sure, but they come in glass jars and we never use them in salads. Just bare from the bottle. : ) We call it " rolmops" meaning one though the 's' suggests plural. Plural would be rolmopsen or rolmopses. I love the look of your salad ; did you prepare that one yourself?
Looks great.

Disanthrope reminds me too much of "distrophy". Not really pleasant at all. I'd prefer the old fashioned einzelganger.

No. I found it on Flickr. But I've eaten something similar in Germany (link). Ah, there was an Imbissbude ('snack booth') in the Bonner Altmarkt that sold all kinds of herring. Takeaway, food truck, roach coach, friterie, frietkot, and other terms ...

Hah! Those words. They really make me laugh.
Frietkot is definitely Belgian. laugh Language can be so much fun.
