Hello from New England (USA)!
« on: April 10, 2021, 17:39:11 »
Hello, everyone! I had some Playmobil as a child, but rediscovered it about 5 years ago. I teach Latin and picked up a few Romans for a demonstration (mostly because I cannot draw). A bit later, I started collecting more figures and props and using them in my own teaching (and discovered that someone else has done amazing of Latin things with Lego minifigs). But I’m still slowly working on website introducing Latin using Playmobil. This group is so inspiring!

Vetus in Anglia a me receperint

(I used Google Translate, so I hope I haven't  just suggested you do something unlikely with a vintage automobile!)
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Salve de Belgica (Secunda)  :)
You know, the region about one once wrote "Horum omnium fortissimi sunt Belgae, ... "  ;)
(And let´s forget the next part was "... propterea quod a cultu atque humanitate provinciae longissime absunt, minimeque ad eos mercatores saepe commeant atque ea quae ad effeminandos animos pertinent important"  ::) )

"Old in England to me they who will have received"?!
I think your real name might be "Brian", not "Graham"?  ;D
