I hope I can get some help with this. There are some missing parts and likely some errors in my transcription.

Not Balingen in Württemberg, but Bahlingen am Kaiserstuhl in Baden, north-northwest of Freiburg im Breisgau.  It was my grandfather's hometown.  Almost everyone in his family was from that village for as far back as records go, which is basically the Thirty-Years' War, since many churches and their records from before then were destroyed.

My grandmother, who was born in Pennsylvania, was apparently of Württembergisch and Pfälzisch descent, but I have had little luck with records on her family.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
