to armagnac: - You are welcome! :)

If You have time, take a look to this page! This is what I find, when double check "Prozit" translation to Estonian version.

I heard also than Finnish peoples get much fun when Estonians at night said to each other "terviseks!". In Finland are similar saying, but used in vulgar dialogs and means - 'have good s*x!' :D

matkustava_kissa on December 7, 2007

well, it is indeed funny :-) btw, the word is "terviseks" without a blank after the "i".

Arma Angers on December 8, 2007

then, terviseks to all ;)

Hi! Armagnac

In Hong Kong, people say: 飲勝 (traditional Chinese)

In China, people say: 干杯 (Simplified Chinese)

I like red wine. Please take photo related to red wine.


Pennington Geis on December 9, 2007

Aha! Amagnac! Now I understand your Panoramio name!

And am introduced to another of life's pleasures -- thank you.

I am reminded of a story told by a friend from Kansas who was just as embarrassingly mono-lingual as most of us americans, yet had been invited to speak at a conference in Italy. Of course, they provided a translator for him. But at the final banquette he was on his own. When it was finally his turn in a long round of toasts, he raised his glass and with all the warmth and dignity he could muster, called out the only word he could think of that might work: “Skoal!” (intending the Scandinavian skaal/skal). Stunned silence followed. After dinner, when he could ask what his gaffe had been, he learned that what he had actually said was the equivalent of calling out “gonorrhea!”

But photographs transcend the spoken word, and this beautiful one sends an unmistably warm toast to us all. Thank you.

Lest I make another american gaffe, let me reply thus.

Arma Angers on December 9, 2007

so Pennington, do you think I might add "skaal", or even skoal ! to the tittle ?

Jeff, merci beaucoup ! 飲勝 to all !!! (I mean 干杯 to all, for the less cultured of us ;)

and since you've asked for a red wine picture, I could suggest for instance that one

I will add NA ZDRAVJE in Slovenian language. Na zdravje to you armagnac :) Do you know any slovenian vine?

Arma Angers on December 10, 2007

NA ZDRAVJE to you Matej & Vesna ! I'm afraid I don't know any but a good friend of mine went there last summer and told me they were good. What I remember from a remote trip across Yougoslavia, long, long ago, is the taste of Slivovice ! quite strong for the young creature I still was by then ! Santé !

Majlend Bramo on December 10, 2007

Che bella idea! Allora gezuar a te armagnac!

Ciao, Majlend

I`m not vine expert, but i like to drink red vines called Refošk and Barbera. Boath have really strong taste and a litle harshness. My wifes favorite vine is white vine Traminec. It is desert vine with a great deal of sugar in its basis. Šljivovica is strong drink, nearly like russian vodka, but in Slovenia we called it Šnopc. Where were you in Yugoslavia?

Arma Angers on December 10, 2007

Matej & Vesna thanks for your informations about slovenian wines, I hope I can try them anytime soon! ! Šljivovica / Šnopc if I remember well is a plum alcohol, more fruity than vodka if not less strong. We stayed in Yougoslavia for 3 weeks, camping here and there, first in Slovenia, then Bosnia and then Serbia, Macedonia and Kosovo and on the way back Croatia. Many great memories ; among them a wonderful natural park in Slovenia but I've forgotten its name, another special one is our stay at lake Prespa, a wonderful place where Macedonia (or is it Kosovo ?), Albania and Greece meet. Many greetings !

Majlend, gezuar to you !! it's very different in albanian ; na zdravje in slovanian is very close to many other slave languages, like salute-santé-salud in roman languages are very close too.

Phoebus Apostolides on December 14, 2007

Shit man, just my luck to arrive at this party too late... you guys drank all the alcohol, I hope you all get a hangover 8-P

Arma Angers on December 14, 2007

phoebus, a good armagnac never gives a hangover, only pleasure and uplifting of the soul ;) cheers.

Pennington Geis on December 15, 2007

Like your photos.

à ta santé, Peter, and thanks for being, so far, the first and the last to comment that pic ! (it was the end of a good bottle of armagnac, which is always sad... but is always a call for the next one, as well. cheers.

Arma Angers on December 19, 2007

Pennington, it's reciprocal, then !

Peter C Byron on December 19, 2007

Emmanuel and Pennington we should set up the Mutual appreciation photographers Society or MAPS for short. There's a google earth punn there:) To be a member you must have pictures in Google Earth and not be afraid or to take offence when a picture gets a critical comments.

As an idea we could set a page that has the MAPS members photographs on tha are deemed by majority vote to be the best of the best. each member would have the right to have their work added or removed at anytime.

What do you reckon Peter
