If it's been more than 30 minutes since you posted, you CAN'T delete it -- you have to ask FA or a mod to do it for you.

Can someone please explain the pschology behind the often displayed romance for dead adolescent boys on this forum? Does it have a specific term?

I can't explain the psychology, but I think one has to be a very much living adolescent girl to understand it!  ;) ;D

GRRR! David. Tu es un fiend.  :) We are not amused.

An unusual semi-French response. Let me assist you with the grammar. Firstly as I am your respected elder, you should have used the second person formal pronoun vous along with the second person formal conjugation of the verb 'to be', êtes. Fiend is not a French word but more likely a word of German origin. The French equivalent is démon (m), therefore your sentence should have read: Vous êtes un démon. Now if I were going to advise you further about la langue française, I would write that it would probably be a more effective sentence if you added an adjective to modify démon, may I suggest an adjective such as persistent, annoying, troublesome, amusing, etc. ?

Actually I was able to install French, Russian, German, Spanish and Portuguese on screen keyboards by following the detailed instructions posted somewhere on this forum. Maybe someone would point out where those instructions can be found. Your other alternative is to install foreign characters on your Word program and simply cut and paste them to your response. If you save the letters below for future re-use then you should have all the letters needed for French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Hungarian, Estonian, Finnish and Czech.

That was me, as a matter of fact. Here's a link to the thread with instructions as well as Cyrillic keyboard layouts:

The site is great, and I must said that I was amazed by the rare pics and documents you have there...I knew most of the pics , but four our five of them were absolutely unknown for me...Without mentioning the excellent photos of Alexei toys and books. These last ones, are not only important to know Alexei's life, but also to know more about life back then.

The black and white photographies give us a false impression of these days, making us to believe that all was sad and very different than nowadays. But when we see the real things (dresses, toys, hats, books, etc), we understand that these people who we read about were   like us: just people. (Is for that that I like so much well colourized pics:there is LIFE in the).

Thank you again to bring Tsarevich Alexis to life again.

Is it not amazing what a little Miracle Grow plant food and some water can do to things you thought were long dead!

One last question, but can anybody tell me what Tsarevitch Alexei and his friends are eating and what Alexei has on his head in the picture in my first post? Just an eternally curious mind wondering.

To me, Aleksey looks like he has a glass of something. And knowing kids, they were probably given paper towels and ended up putting them on their heads. Me and my cousins were famous for that at birthday parties.  ;D

Actually, at that time, they were probably REAL towels.  ;)
