The beginnings of a Berlin-Warsaw axis?

Radio Polonia

German President Horst Koehler has spoken in favour of forging a joint eastern policy of the EU in talks with president Aleksander Kwasniewski at the start of his official two-day visit to Poland. The two president stressed while there are some sensitive issues to be resolved, bilateral relations are very good. “We are giving the young generation a unique opportunity of a secure, friendly Polish-German neighbourhood”, Kwasniewski said. He voiced, however, his fundamental doubts concerning German plans to create a centre against expulsions in Berlin, which is seen in Poland as an attempt to revise history. President Koehler believes that bilateral consensus on the centre is possible. The idea of the centre is forced through by the German Expellees Union.

Horst Koehler is among some 20 heads of state and government taking part in events in Warsaw and Gdansk honouring Solidarity.

Well....I was referring to my new "resolution".

I have left the 20th century behind and abandoned 800x 600, for the much trendier 1024 x 768, due to monitor upgrade on the argontech puter.

And I must say your blog looks mahvelous at this resolution. I am going to have to re-tool mine to fit.

Aha, work has prevented me from checking Sitemeter today (just too busy) - so I didn't know you had changed your res.

Thanks for the compliment! (I almost thought you were a blogspammer ;-) -- I really love your blog, I'll be sure and bookmark you!!)
