Maws;
We have the same problem here. One piece of furniture can be called an armoire, a wardrobe or a chiffarobe. And that's within the same STATE!
Half my frends ate dinner and supper, the other half lunch and dinner. As the French say;
La plus la change la plus la meme chose!

Yes, and viva le (la?) difference! In the end we all get by and learn from eah other. The USA gave me so many opportunities to broaden my vision and dreams, I wouldn't have minded if all there spoke Chinese! Love your site.

Whoops! That piqued my curiosity: "broadened my vision and dreams"

Maws, would you be so kind as to expand upon that a bit - whether cooking related or not?

Old Coot - Yes, in many ways. You must keep in mind that I come from a country with a population of some 45 million people. There are only three or four major cities, but the largest boasts a population of a mere 2.5 million. A large % of people live in rural and underdeveloped areas.

(However, the country is amazingly beautiful and we are working towards a healthy and happy future.)

Just being part of the development in your country, the organisation, the happy (mostly) mix of people was impressive. As was the variety of scenery - I lost my heart to the Southwest - and activities.

Visiting New York and its hustle and bustle as well as the museums and art galleries was something I shall never forget. We also spent seven years in London, but never came across the openness and warmth of America.

I was impressed by the Americans' dedication to their country and can't imagine people in any other country working so hard, often willing to handel two jobs at a time.

I came back filled with memories, but also with ideals of achieving more than before, of being committed to others and to my country.

There is much, much more, but perhaps this is not the right place to discuss it. Let me end by saying: God bless America and I thank it for the opportunities I had there.

On this serious note, Cheers.

Maws
