@Dušan 25 south Slavic? ;-) My grandmother who was from eastern Ukraine could hardly speak English, and she made her own home made version of Pizza. The artical has a lot of stereo types where some fit and some don´t. The bit about garlic and onions fits, same with 14, no one in my family uses them, they just go by feel. Then the bit about the parents not traveling does not fit at all where my parents love to travel, they alone moved five times to a differant continent, and are constanly going some where!
Maybe it is the Polish-Ukrainian mixture, with many years in Germany and Canada? 27 is a habbit of my father, but not in Sprite bottles.
