Polls, Princesses and Polyglots!

Princess Aniela Radziwill
Our last poll was about Disney Princesses.  Voting was split evenly between Cinderella, Merida and Elsa (with one each).  I think I forgot to vote.  I vote, Jasmine.

I hope this next poll gets a bit more action than the princesses did, so to speak.  I'm taking a different tack entirely.  How many of you out there speak any languages besides English?

If you are capable of having a light conversation with someone or at least ordering food entirely in that language it counts.  You don't have to be a UN translator, but just taking it in high school for two years probably doesn't count.

FYI, the photo is from a Princess Poll (or rather a Pole Princess as in Polish).  According to Arrayed in Gold, Princess Aniela Radziwill was born on 3 October 1781 in Vienna, the eldest daughter of prominent Polish-Lithuanian nobleman Michał Hieronim Radziwiłł and Helena Przeździecka.  I'll bet she was a polyglot.

Bill, I found your comment about the Polish Princess Aniela Radziwill very interesting. Where did you ever find that information? Like I've said before: "Your knowledge never ceases to amaze me." Thanks for sharing dear. Anxious to see you on Sunday at your Mom's. Love, A. Char xoxoxoxox

Don't tell anyone, it's a big secret of mine. I don't share it with just anyone. I Googled it.

Right now Blogger says there are no votes on our poll. I don't know why since I know there are votes for both yes and no.

If you'd rather, you can always vote in the comments.
