Sounds like the weather here. We got over 100cm of snow in the past few weeks. There are snow banks taller than I am everywhere.

You in fact feel flowing and you truthfully desire to speak. I know the final obsession you wish for to do is remain at the clinic or at residence you want to get out and speak.  Like a Star @ heaven - Giles12

Is Frank a common alias for Chinese guys? a friend of mine from Nanjing/Madison is called Frank, written Xu Yan.

View user profile
A few of the Chinese guys I know have Russian first names like Ivan and such

I haven't seen all that many "Frank"s in Hong Kong, where almost everyone (at least middle class and up) has their Chinese name AND English name stamped on their passports at the same time. But there are a LOT of names that has its origins in German language.
