I should write my comments in German since I really need the practice, but I'll stay with English before I embarrass myself. Don't feel like you are alone in looking up words, I do it all the time even though I am not translating anything. I keep a dictionary on my desk at home and at work.

It is a shame you can't have Majel Barrett's soothing voice translating for you. On the bright side, your written English is better than the that of many American adults. It is certainly better than that of the average college student who has spent 6-8 years of their life in text speak mode. My brother, the journalism professor, can sadly attest to this sorry truth.

Good luck with those drafts! I have a half dozen or so waiting for completion.

You have been impressively prolific! A real inspiration.

Good luck with the dictionary, it sounds like it'd be a good investment.

Totally different subject: How did you turn off the nightmare Captcha Word Verification? The new two word system is totally unworkable. I'm going to take my chances if I can figure out how.

Thanks for your comments.
@Dwayne: See here.
I am very honoured by your thoughts on the english language. :)
@Bill; that made me think of a new sort of entry here - I might publish a bilingual (typewritten in german, translated to english) about once a week. We'll see.

That's something I can relate to. Sometimes writing in a foreign language can be challenging. I usually use the iMac's dictionary. But after reading this I'm thinking about installing a voice recognition app :)
