What Happens When You Mix Languages

At lunch we were eating a pear. I said, "This pear is soczysta." Evie replied, "Pewnie bardzo dobrze ją umyłaś."

(If you don't speak Polish: soczysta=juicy, czysta=clean Evie's reply can be translated, "You must have washed it very well.")

Hi Lisa--
This is my third attempt to post to you (I'm thinking my first two didn't work)I've never contacted a blogger before=)
I am a paralegal in Florida and my job is to find heirs. I am looking for two people who I THINK live in Mielec Poland. I was wondering if you could look them up in the phone book and get their street address (they are brother and sister).
If you can write me back at I can fill you in on the details.
Thank you so much for your help!
(I found your blog while searching for Mielec)
