Monday July 9, 2007:

Just stopping by a minute and change my blog topic from a controversal subject back to just general chit chat.
Haven't been around today; hope all is well and good with you. Have a great evening!


Sunday Evening, July 8, 2007:

We had a small condo pool side party for Rylee this afternoon. Betsey and Scott had to go to the Airport for their flight back to Philly. It was a good family day.

Funny, for about 1 minute we heard thunder and saw clouds...but we had 4 Certified Life guards at the party and they made everyone, even those not in our party, get out of the pool... and waited until it was safe before they allowed anyone to get back in the pool. But is was a great afternoon.

Got 15 pics out of over 100 I took today... will put some of them in the header.

Hope you all had a Beautiful Sunday!!!


Later while thinking about it...
OK, I am going out on a limb here and being political.
How many of you get really pissed off when you call any number and are told "Press 1 for English".... ?????
I do not know about you but that grates every fiber of my being when I hear this and MY Big Corp America company is the worse at doing this on all of our 800 or 888 numbers... but does it make anyone else crazy like it makes me crazy????

I will post my 15 Family Pics of today in this header but still waiting on their approvals.

oh yes, I still haven't smoked or used nicotine since May 31st,,, I am doing good and on my way!

Ok, Rylee's Mama came, we played in the pool for a while and Rylee got some swimming in... she can swim and kick her legs but we still cannot get her to "dig" with her arms. Daughter says she is now old enough to catch on to the "digging" of the arms to move faster and eventually be able to come up for air.

but she saids she has seen it before; they won't do it then one day the "light bulb" goes off and they start using their arms.

Once Rylee starts using her arms then she will be able to swim laps! LOL!!!

very hot today...been in the pool awhile..may go back for another 30 mins or hour...

need to do my pool workout...did my free weights this morning and my 4 mile walk. but haven't done the pool workout this week so far.


will check back later my friends!

Ahhh Gamma - you are talking an entirely different story. Those folks have that terrible new 'work ethic' that my hubby and I talk about all the time. There was a time in our history when people would work for nothing for the experience and having the opportunity of bettering themselves to advance in their job. Not anymore. There is a generation out there, immigrants and Americans alike, that have an attitude of 'it's owed me'. I can't stand it and I do worry about it. Sounds like those employees you are referring to have that kind of attitude. That is so different from the immigrant family that is trying to 'fit in' and make the most of their American experience.

At my husband's work, they just came down hard on personal cell phone use - on work time. It was being abused, so they had to make or remake the rules. What was the biggest response to that? "Hey - it's my cell phone." True, but you are using your work time to make personal phone calls? Aren't you suppose to be working during work time? You get breaks and lunch times to use your cell phone. There was a time, not that long ago, when cell phones weren't even around and somehow we all got along without them. Now, I'm not dissing cell phones. They have their place, great for emergencies, but just to banter with a friend on your personal cell phone when you are being paid to work, well, that's just wrong in my book.

Sorry to say, but Internet use is going to be next. So many use the Internet for personal use during work time. During your break or lunch - no problem....that's YOUR time. But you are paid to work....at least it used to be that way.

Look what you started! LOL Sorry!!!

and to all of you that compliment the family pictures, Thanks... yes, the girls and I do look a lot alike.
so funny, Betsey was standing by the pool when Christian's family arrived and she was kissed "Hello Ellen, how's it going?" about 3 times... People mistake those girls for each other all of the time unless they are standing next to each other. LOL! And my son looks like my Dad except much taller.. and also has same facial structure! We all look a lot alike!

Oh and in case I make the wrong impression, I LOVE people's accents from their country of origin or even the different accents here in America...and I welcome new American's to this country if they are coming here for the right reasons and not just to use the social services and not contribute.

My family and my children's familes have all sorts of diversity cultural differences in their backgrounds and it makes for fun family gatherings!


And let's face it; they will work for less and repress wages in areas of high concentration. This is a truth from a Human Resources and Corporate American point of view. Why pay more salary to your employees if you don't have to pay it because others will work for that lower wage... and I'm talking well above "miminum wage" here, I'm talking living wages but still supressed as compaired to the cost of living.

ok, no more from me on this..... I hope..
geeze, I think I had some built up frustrations LOL!!!!

Good morning everyone, sorry I never made it back yesterday... I decided to be lazy yesterday and get some much needed rest!!!!
So those of you that think I never rest I do. I find with such a hectic life I must have one of my "off work" afternoons to have a "down day"... just lay in bed and watch TV and doze.. just to recharge my batteries!


and I see our discussions is still going on.
This is from Peace:

"I wonder if it would considered to be less an affront to Americans if the menu said press "1" to continue in another language, for those who are not fluent in English and would like to opt for other choices. Just curious."

That pretty much sums up my opinon, in America you should Press 1 for a different language.


Where I work it is full of immigrants, for a while there in the late 90's we hired non-English speaking employees because this particular area of the company was "production" type of work and they didn't have to have English skills. However, these folks who are employees and now getting upset because they cannot be promoted or work their way up because they cannot be trained and cannot communicate properly.

And YES we have classes these people can take all of the time available to them. Some on site for even more convenience. We've tried having them do it on "their own time" but guess what... won't spend their own time doing this... then we actually gave English Classes on Company time.. and now many will attend... to get off the production floor and out of work a few hours a week. But only a marginal improvement was noticed.

I could go on and on about this and I can do it with a reference of someone who works and lives in this envirnoment. Anytime any of them talk about "My Country" they are not talking about the United States of America... they are talking about one of the Carribean Islands or a country in Central or South America...And they talk about "My Country" all of the time. And "Their Country" flags on in their car windows and license plates...in break room they break off into segregated groups according to "their country" instead of trying to get to know other groups better...

I am in the minority at this particular American Company's location.. But I chose to be there and work in this area of the Company for past 7 1/2 yrs after 14 in another area.

OK will stop now.

Rylee is napping and I've got things to do!
Will get back later if I can.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday!!!

Karen; I just left a post on your blog! I can just imagine how tough it was to try to speak German... some of my family are Pennsylvania Dutch and still spoke quite q bit of German; I know a few words, but their gutteral pronunciations can be very hard to speak correctly!

Your story reminded me of one told to me by some friends who went to Germany for their honeymoon. My friend Mike married a girl who's parents came from Germany and she really wanted to visit the place for the first time, so they went for their honeymoon. She spoke some German and thought they'd have no trouble with the language there. Well, she didn't know quite as much as she thought and they came back with some hilarious tales about their misadventures!

One of my favorites was when they tried to go shopping- they wanted tooth paste, a bootle of booze to make mixed drinks in their motel room and some other things I can't remember; but they ended up with a tube of anchovie paste and a big bottle of vegetable oil.... and other things that didn't turn out to be what they hoped to be buying!

They also got themselves hopelessly lost because they couldn't read the road signs (including important signs like "ROAD IS CLOSED") and that was especially adventurous- they were lucky to survive the closed road where they almost ended up in a river!

They considered themselves lucky that the people they came in contact with were very friendly and willing to be helpful, but they still felt pretty silly pantomiming their conversations and they were sure that as soon as they left the room, the Germans must have had a fit of giggles and said; "Crazy Americans!"

But, they did say that the Germans they encountered all seemed to appreciate that they were trying to speak German, even if they were doing it incredibly badly!

I'd like to say just one more thing about the ESL thing. I also believe that if someone wants to move to this country, they should learn the language. I'm not that willing to let them off the hook. That said, there are things that need to be taken care of in this country (paying bills, getting utilities, etc) mostly things that deal with money.

I know I would feel more comfortable if I could converse in my home language so I know I am understood.

I have an example. When we first moved to Germany and took over an apartment from friends, I had to go to the utility company to get things transferred. I didn't know the language AT ALL! It was so frustrating trying to get things understood between two people who could not understand each other.

In retrospect I was kind of sad that I never learned German. The Germans, at least the ones that I ran into, all had some knowledge of the English language and wanted to "practice" with me. Now I wish I had learned the language as I had the perfect opportunity to practice with them! I did learn some German: numbers, my address, token daily passages, but not enough to carry on any kind of a conversation.

But when it came time for me to take care of anything monetarily (we lived on the economy as they called it - not military housing); rent, utilities, groceries (didn't always shop at the PX)I was always a bit apprehensive about taking care of that kind of business. Would I find someone who knew English? Would they know enough to understand me? It was pretty frightening!

OK Done!

Good Evening, Gamma!

You justed wanted to give the blogs a little zing, didn't you? :-D

But, if you don't mind, I'd just like to point out one more thing, as someone who taught English to Spanish speaking students and has foreign friends; yes, English is a very hard language to learn, but it doesn't take long to learn enough to get by in society. Granted, they're not going to be great orators in their new language right off the bat, but they quickly learned the important stuff. My students had enough basic words to make themselves understood in a few weeks and were comfortable conversing in English in a matter of months. By the end of the year, they were well versed enough to be making jokes in English.

Of course they should be able to keep and cherish their native tongue and their native traditions, but I'd still like to see them at least make a effort to learn English. It's the ones who won't learn who annoy me.

I wonder if it would considered to be less an affront to Americans if the menu said press "1" to continue in another language, for those who are not fluent in English and would like to opt for other choices. Just curious.

About your new topic, you always sound so busy I don't imagine you have many lazy summer days- it seems like you're always busy with the grand kids, or working or doing things with your home. Do you have any vacation time coming up so you can actually relax this summer?

Hello everyone,

Sorry I haven't been around today. But I see we have very mixed opinions on this topic! And this is America so we all can express our own thoughts freely.

Hope everyone had a good Monday. I got some things to do tomorrow but I know I will be around at some point.

Have a wonderful evening my friends!

Don't have time this morning to put my 2 cents in, but I do have something to contribute about the language thing.

Dentist appt and then errands to run, but I'll be back. It takes all of a second to push 1.

I have lived in a foreign country - and lived, not stayed or visited and never had to learn the language because they all mostly knew English. We are a lazy bunch. We expect of others what we don't expect of ourselves. YES - they need to learn the language, YES it's harder to learn at a later age, YES English is by far the most screwed up language there is - we have rules for our language, but they work about 50-80% of the time. I also strongly believe that EVERYONE should maintain their home language, and the only way to do that is to speak it.

Ok - I said I wouldn't say anything - but I did. But now I need to go.

Well, I learned Spanish by reading some 'teach yourself Spanish' books, by reading children's storybooks in Spanish and through some Mexican and South American friends... who also taught me all the swear words. :-D If I can learn to speak Spanish fairly fluently while living in an English speaking country, they should be able to learn English even easier. I used to teach English to exchange students from Latin American countries, just a once a week class and all the students spoke English pretty well in a few months.

I grew up in a mostly Polish neighborhood with alot of Polish immigrants. We had it setup in our community with a great ESL program. They had the opprotunity to learn English right when they got here. It made it much easier. Sometimes I feel here in America we are alittle harder on certain immigrant races then others.

I have question for everyone. Bob's QOD..LOL I hear everyone talking about that immigrants that migrate to this country should learn the language, and that I agree with, no doubt. But how do we go about teaching them the language?? Have any of you looked into how hard it is to find English classes around. We have a hard time finding teachers period!..LOL Believe me teaching English to immigrants isnt high on the list for teachers! So how do we do this? Its so easy for us to sit back and say, yeah they need to learn English, or they dont make the effort. How do you know that they dont make the effort?? Has anyone in your community reached out to them to teach them the language?? But, its freakin hard. I think we need to find a way. So, how do we do it??

Good Morning, Gamma!

Pressing "1" for English is a pet peeve of mine, too. Like so many have already said, I believe that if you come to this Country, you should learn to speak the language!

We live in an area in Florida that has a large Mexican population that doesn't seem to make much of an effort to learn English or even mix with Americans. They shop at their 'own' stores and travel in packs - I guess it makes them feel less alone in a new country, but it irks me that they don't seem to have much interest in becoming the least Americanized. A surprising number speak little to no English. I speak very rusty Spanish (used to know it better years ago) but I am often called upon to translate because so many Mexicans living here cannot speak English.

Most of us or our ancestors came here from some other country and I admire those who come here because they truly want to live in America and be productive Americans. But, it's the ones - like some who live near us- who have two huge Mexican flags flying in their front yard over a small American flag -(which is illegal, BTW) could any other statement be clearer?

I, myself, am married to a Canadian immigrant and even he harps on this subject as much as I do. He is especially annoyed with illegal immigrants. After all the time and money we put into getting him his green card and doing things the right way, why should anyone else get a free pass?

Well, as you can see, we have strong feelings about this and don't care what's considered politically correct. You can try to bend over backwards to accommodate people but you can only bend so far before you break. And I think that most of America is at that point.

Well, now that I've gotten all that out of my system!

:-D

Hello seflagamma... :)

Good morning, How are you today?.

I am here early because I have some problems with my camera and the new "face" of the weather station history, I dunno why I can't see the image of my camera but anyway I'll check it later, well I was surfing in the blogs and then I stopped here.. and started reading all the comments!.. ufff. U know what?.. I think that you have all the reason about that, and I think that it could be a problem or annoying if u don't speak the language. If I want to live in other country, the first thing will be learn the language. You know u can't do anything if u don't understand the people, but are many persons in the world that learning a new language can be difficult and knowing or no the language "in this case English" they need to move to your country and there they will found or create new groups of people who also speak the same language and then that group gets bigger every day.

It's the same thing down here in Mèxico, specially here in Los Cabos, some years ago all the people used to speak just spanish, but then the tourists start comming every day, specially from United States, maybe comming for some relax, funn, and even for living here. With the pass of the years in this place has been created some comunities and here are thousends of americans living here, so, we as the locals need to learn to speak english for the tourist and now when new americans come down here to live, they hear that we speak english so they won't learn spanish because they will find communities or people who speak english. It's the more the same in this kind of places, Los Cabos, Acapulco, puerto vallarta, Cancun, LA, Miami, Dallas, NY, etc...

The local people need to get used to the new who is comming, it's hard I know but we can't move to other place cause that...
Like we say here,"Si no puedes con el enemigo uneteles" "If you can't fight with the enemy join with them"...

I've been studying english for almost 8 years and 1 year of german and I'll take more languages in a near future, we can't stop this, the cities are growing the world is growing, diffents cultures and languages, this stuff it's happening world wide.

So... that was my humild opinion, a little bit long, but i am interested in the subject.
wow i've been writting for about 40 minutes, i haven't sleep and I didn't repair the camera!
I gotta go, I am very tired!. I will be here later as ussual.

Have a nice Week.
