About Curt: Curt is one of my favorite people. He calls himself the "Old Dumb Dutchman". That is one example of the Pennsylvania Dutch sense of humor. I remember my grandparents always calling themselves dumb Dutchmen. I always enjoy Curt's e-mails and he has helped me on several occasions with PA Dutch translations. If you have questions about the PA Dutch, I am certain he would be happy to help you out. His e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
