What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

Is not worth a fly.

New word - Coffice

A coffice is a cafe that is being used for office work.

Seemingly more and more of us are doing our work in cafes - coffice work I guess.

    Once I got a coffice correction of my paper in German. I wouldn't say it was a great job. A German lady substituted das Dialog for der Dialog, und dergleichen mehr. Heat was insupportable and you could hear deafening music around. :) :) :)
    My essay was decidedly worse than before.

    Der Dialog is of course right, but you could have written it in Swiss`s dialect, because they say to the Tram das Tram hehe, at least around Basel.

    Is coffice in the Oxford English Dictionary yet? If not, I'm very sure it soon will be.
