This site was added into the favorit of my browser one or two years ago. I viewed all pictures when i moved in NY from Shanghai, China last year. Now I read your journal every day. I take it as one of English homework, understanding them less 30%."
Did I ever tell you the story about how I once tried to learn Chinese from a book called "Learn Chinese in One Month?" I did? Good, then I don't need to tell it again. Suffice to say: nothing doing with that approach. I did once learn enough French to read the classics and understand about 30% of what I read, which is about all you need to comprehend in any language to get the plot.
But I'm glad to see that my journal is now being used to assimilate the language of the Bard (to learn English). Perhaps that is another revenue stream. Learn English from a photographer. Yes, you can do it on-line in One month or less. Money back if not completely satisfied.
Well, money back if I'm not satisfied, not if you're not satisfied, but that's for the lawyers.
Item 1: Still no word from the $230 Paypal Order. I did get paranoid about it. Somehow it was part of an elaborate ruse but I couldn't figure out the angle. The money certainly was in my account. But was it? Maybe it was a phoney site I was sent to. No. What if I just refunded the money? Fine with me, but maybe that was the whole idea in the first place and the refund would go somewhere else. No, that doesn't make sense. I can only say that I await contact at this point.
Item 2: There is no item 2 at this point.
Item 3: From the hearings on 9/11
Senator: Is your name Richard Clarke?
Clarke: Yes it is.
Senator: Do they ever call you Dick Clarke?
Senator: Why not?
Clarke: I don't know. I don't like to be confused with Dick Clark the host of American Bandstand.
Senator: I see. Has that ever happened?
Clarke: Yes, senator. Several times, while I was the counter terrorism Tsar, over the last 30 years, I have received threatening letters, mostly from teenagers upset with what I was playing. At first they were upset with my choice of music, and later with how I was still trying to be one of them although I was in my 70's. I put several of my best men on it and we came to the conclusion -- not that we're still one hundred percent sure -- you can't be with these things -- that the letters were actually meant for Dick Clark, not me.
Senator: I see. Then I won't call you Dick.
Clarke: Thank you, Senator.
