OK ... Got ya. And what about John's "You bastard" posted to my adress? In this case I think it's need no any brave to insult someone by internet. So John have shown his own real face here. I think so ...

You bastard. I have only posted a link to an explanation of your linguistic dillemas. Like you don't swear everyday.

This was the real deal - I was coached in the elevator going up to the penthouse. I've never been treated so well in my life since I was a friend of a friend. Didn't mean to insult Italians in general. It was actually quite exciting - they took us to all the hot spots and we got first class treatment all the way. I was happy when we were on our way, though. I had to proof everything I said before I said it - you never know when your subconscience will take over!.

I wondered also when John posted that but did figure it was in response to karfar's post about the wind, however, he didn't clear it up when asked which would have clarified things. There is no sense in John being hostile because of what happened in history; none of us are responsible for the actions of the brutal governments in past history. Just my 2 cents.

Funny. You should take it as another English lesson Lyuty.
Friends often call each other "bastards" when one gets the better of the other.

That will be the day when Internet forum posts will make me swear at people for real. So take it easy, won't you? Only newbs get pulled into flaming wars...

There was a sudden flood of Russian speaking people in the Chicagoland several years ago. Loud and obnoxious in the grocery stores, discount clothing chaines. Turns out these were the Israelis who voluntarily gave up their "illegal" settlements in Palestine- got paid handsomly for that and since they do not need visas for US, many came here. What a cultural difference. And dressing habits. Like bad 70's disco dream
We have few renting apartments here at the complex where I manage some. Bad news. Late with rent, heavy drinkers and totally rude to other tenants, especially non-caucasians. Parties till wee hours, all doorbells ringing at 2 or 3 AM. Real estate broker I work with told me of a number of scams they did at the heyday of the real estate madness we had: have the home owners re-list their upscale property for 200-300 thousand more and get that cash back at the closing. But after the closing no one would move into the house. Pipes would freeze, homes got flooded and destroyed before anyone realized what went on. Several deals like that and they were gone back to Russia with a million dollars. Just sick.
I'm sure many are legitimate and hard working people, but boy... we are so cautious now.

If your Italian trip would include Padova, I can introduce you to a very nice, very gentle, inteligent Italian, a professor at Padova U. who, and his friends, would take you around Padova, show you all the atractions and stuff that no ordinary tourist sees. History, entertainment, life. English speaking. Some
I had a blast showing them around few Polish cities couple of years ago. Warsaw, Gdansk (Gdansk, Gdynia, Sopot- the tri-city). Lomza. Many museums. Got to see the stuff that is not on current exhibits and such. Had a ball.

Hey, if you don't get English slang, even when slowly explained... that's not my problem.

As for my Polish, its fine. Both spoken and written. Probably thanks to all the homework I did with my kids who along with regular education, went to Saturday Polish Language school. Graduated both grammar school as well as high school courses (accredited by Polish Ministry of Education) with diplomas. All those years... the pain of homeworks, reading, writing competing with softball or football. Or my fishing time. But low and behold, they are proud to be Poles now. I'm almost suprised!

Enough on both subjects. But in a way, it is about keeping traditions and ones roots alive. Works the same for Eskimoes, Indians as it does for emigrants. IMHO.
