Dani, did you ever think your thread would be so great?!  By the way, you express yourself very well. I couldn’t tell you were having any problems.

Thanks

Thanks, Marietta.

 

Let's say that explaining "procedures" [like multi-quoting] or feelings is a bit "challenging" in a foreign language.

 

Language-wise I feel "unrooted" -- mother tongue being Romanian, then at the age of 15 arriving to Israel and trying to learn a whole new language + alphabet....

 

Nothing like French, or even English, which I had a nice knowledge of.

 

Some things I still express myself [in my head] in Romanian, some in Hebrew, and even some in English [like today, when I wrote a friend, fluent in English, that "I'm not looking forward to the reparations we'll be doing on our balcony" -- I'm not looking forward being a better phrase than in Hebrew].

 

So, yes, I can say that I speak 4 languages, but I'm not proficient in any one of them...

Out tonight at Delaware Speedway. Owen’s hockey coach from last year races on Friday’s here, in the Super Stock class. It is a 50 lap race. It’s the final race of the night.
 

He’s currently just sitting on the pit wall with his #1 car. He has was won the last two weeks, and this is the third race of the season. Should be interesting.

Beautiful night, just over 75F with a nice breeze.

He’s on the cover of the race program. He’s competitive for sure.

Looks like his house is coming along nicely. 

Doing anymore test cruises?    That was great that you got to do the Allure one, especially since you were on her very last sailing.

 

August is really busy for us, so I doubt it

I have no clue what your idea of proficient is but, in my opinion,  your English certainly hits the mark.

Did anyone pay attention to what occurred in NYC last year to cause this drop?

My father was fluent in Polish,Italian and Spanish.Even though he lived in the US nearly 70 years he never mastered English.

Well, I couldn’t get my speed up to 80, or 60, or even 40 because there were several of these on the road.
