Hello, my name is Maram Gross, I'm 19 years old and I'm from Germany. I went there to a Waldorf School in Wendelstein which is near Nuremberg and I passed my exames in march. I'm now in the near of San Francisco as an Au Pair but I have some problems with my family, we kind of have completely different attitudes and because of that it's difficult to live with them... A rematch is no problem, so I thought it would be better to be an Au Pair of an Waldorf-family. I just wanted to ask, if you know in any way if there is demand of an Au Pair from the parents of your school. I am also allowed to care for children under the age of 2 - it would be really nice to hear something from you
if you need more informations about me or anything, just ask - I just didn't know if my question is reasonable at all -
I'm looking forward to you're response. Sincerely, Maram. (11/01)

Nordic Skis, Boots, Bindings for Sale:
FMI: Peter Moore (207) 233-4353
Fischer RCS Race Classic Ski (2009-2010 model) / Fischer R3 NNN (2011) bindings
182 cm: Medium (fits 100-125 lbs)
$250.00 (new these are $600 with bindings)
Race skis. This was Ian Moore’s race ski in 9th grade. We bought them in Oct 2010 from a Junior Olympic team skier, had them HotBoxed and stone ground and switched bindings to Fischer NNN in 2011. Ian then proceeded to have a growth spurt and needed different skis. Used very little, excellent condition.
From Fischer: “Fischer RCS Classic is a great all-around performer and the first pair of skis that should be in any quiver. The RCS Classic uses the 812 mold to produce an "on/off" kick that can be easily put to the snow by shifting the weight onto the ball of the foot. The 812 camber reduces the threshold power required to get solid grip, yet releases the snow once weight is shifted back to the heel. An incredible ski that is easy to kick, fast, stable and lightweight and performs in all kinds of conditions.”
Salomon S-lab classic (carbon) boots
Size 42
$75.00 (used one season) (New $350.00)
From Salomon: “The S-Lab Classic Boot is a huge improvement over the previous Carbon Pro model with a slew of features that make this boot fantastic. We call this the crack cocaine of ski boots - if you try it, you will want it. A great performance fit that is not quite as aggressive as the old Carbon Pro, and fits a wide range of feet on the narrow side. Light, comfortable and torsionally stiff with a buttery smooth flex in the ball of the foot that connects the ball of your foot to the ski where you want it. It has the gamut of Salomon's best features: Speedlace, sensifit wraparound compression, one-piece carbon sole with carbon heel cup. And it looks cool too - it's black. Can be used with both Pilot Classic and Profil bindings.”
Salomon Propulse (2011) classic bindings (new, in box)
$75.00 (new $95.00)
From Salomon:”EFFICIENT KICK FOR INCREASED ACCELERATION Racing classic binding that is ultra light and super low profile to provide optimum energy transmission and very efficient kick.”

Salomon Profil Equipe (2011) classic bindings (new, in box) $55.00 (new $79.00) (11/01)
