Read an article detailing how successful English immersion programs are for immigrants and especially the young. Seen some in action and have to fully agree - especially the young kids.
Along those lines we can thank the father of Joe DiMaggio for making his sons such great ballplayers. He actually ordered them to play baseball rather than European games “since you are now Americans.”
And further along those lines. Soccer is a great sport for kids until they are old enough to choose a real sport.
Occasionally I actually sponsor good things for the few that read this blog - even Jessie’s voter registration drive - and Wally’s appears on the sidebar. Elks are one of many organizations that do wonderful work we hear little about.
One thing I have noticed about getting older is that for an active person the injuries are more frequent and the recovery is longer. Maybe there is something to the sedentary lifestyle?
I’m not sure about “Brian’s Brain” but his heart and his daughters certainly seems in the right place. Fish take notice.
I wonder if Jessie managed to inform Governor “One And Out” of all the important “facts” she has collected on ESL teachers, towns around the Connecticut casinos, oxygen and Clark, CT.?
Specking of the Governor he was in visible attendance at the Garden on Sunday for deployment festivities for 650 soldiers. Return safely 101stFA, 164thTB and RCAG.
An override committee is now up and running in Middleboro. Will this be a hard sell in these times. I have a link on my sidebar and it would be nice for pro/anti/neutral to exchange opinions here or elsewhere. I’m sure there are areas to cut costs further but IMHO they will still need a Clark load of money.
If anyone has anything they wish to have posted on the side bar or linked just drop me an email or post it for me to transfer and to add to links.
DeLeo has the full court press ready to open up in February for slots and a potential casino. IMO the slots are almost a sure bet. Casino is another story.
The ACLU is - big surprise - in the lead against more stringent measures regarding pre flight boarding. The idea of profiling seems to be especially testy with them. IMHO you should interview every Muslim male between 18-35. That is the most significant profile for terrorists. I find no problem with the new body scans since my body is ultra buff and I will have to fight off TSA Agents - male and female I suppose.
