the town i grew up in was settled largely by german immigrants. this was, of course, circa the 1820s, and up until the 1980s, time largely passed it by. so... we had people in church who spoke German in the home as a first language, like Hispanics often speak Spanish in the home.

i have weird reactions to German: i was born in Germany (Dad was in the US Air Force), and lived there for 3 yrs. my brother and sister spoke it fluently at the time although they've forgotten it now, and the whole family understands spoken German much better than you would think. i don't actually have any memories from then, but anytime someone speaks to me in a language *not* English, my first impulse is to answer in German. never fails, even if i get the wrong word. :-p
