That is ok bagira. You have courage and spirit to stick to your views in the face of so much opposition.
There is an expression in the west:-
"I might not agree with you but I will defend your right to say it to the end"
you say what you think it is refreshing.
I am sitting here with no email from the Russian woman. Sad sad sad. probably too busy to write yet. Tonight I am going to buy one of those talking picture frames then unpack and pack my bag. That seems to release inner tension. That and sucking on ice cubes in 4/4 time. I am anxious to put it mildly. It is as if I am going to see an old friend. Like we have known each other for many years. It is weird. I have put her mind at rest about coming to America and working. I told her that if Eddie Murphy could do it she could. Now I have to explain the joke to her.
OK last night I went out to buy one of those picture frames. They are great!! Alarm clock/temperature, reversable, takes 4 x 6 photo and works on batteries. Only $15, what a deal.
Unfortunately Sharper Image was in a mall.
I ended up leaving with the photo frame, 2 x dreamcatchers, 2 x little video games (not bad for $1 each), a nice picture book of Florida and a really nice book about American Indians, vitamins and film.
Now I have to unweld the suitcase and repack.
