smackdaddy Giu, please start a new thread called: "I'm a disgusting lard bucket." I will gladly learn Portugese, contribute countless inflammatory musings, fly anywhere in the world for the meetings, and kiss your ring to be a part of that. It just really resonates with me.

So what country were you in that had BEAR on the menu?

When I was in Italy my favorite drink when on the town was a Cafe Corretto con Vecchia Romagna. Basically an espresso with a shot of premium brandy.

Anyway..we call it (unbeknownst to my mother), "the disgusting lard bucket"..

So one day, we went to dinner in my mother's house...as we arrived, Fred turns to my mother and says:

"are you feeding us the "the disgusting lard bucket"??? My father told mummy: I hope she's not cooking the "the disgusting lard bucket"....."

ehehehehehehe

Valiente My son has also taken to reading...finally. Last night, he shocked us by saying "I am going to bed early to read my new comic books." I can tell what he is reading because he has started to use "five dollar words" correctly. It is pretty amusing to hear a seven-year-old say things like "What a preposterous notion!"

Unsurprisingly, we are giving him karate lessons for when some kid wants to fight him for speaking like that.

sailhog Alex,
Wonderful pictures and video... but did you know that Barak Obama is a socialist and he's going to try to run your life, event though you're Portugese? That's right! I've got eight sources that prove my point, and I'm going to post them in a minute here. But maybe you don't care because I know how much you hate America! Oh, wait, I forgot you're a democrat and that you hate facts!

Of course, over here in the States we don't go around pistol-whipping our great grandmothers. Although I did bloody up my sister with a bit of the old Cain and Abel when I was 3. Fortunately, she only need a stitch.
I know what you mean smackdaddy. I was stationed in Italy for 3 months and, while it was nice to find someone who spoke English, I actually started taking Italian lessons on base. I didn't learn a whole lot but I learned enough to get by.

One thing that drives me nuts though is when Americans EXPECT other countries to speak English and refuse to even try to learn the native language.
