You - and Anita - are both close enough.  It's really more like GRAW-nyuh,
but GRON-ya will get you by.  Most people, however, tend to come up with
variations on "grain", and Germans generally want to pronounce it GRA-IN-UH.

Until the sky falls on our heads...

No, I haven't lost my mind - it's backed up on tape somewhere.
