Your struggles with English turn out very well, as I have no problem following your writing. I can tell you that if I had to post in any language but English, I would soon give it up!
The American-centric point has come up before and I know must make it more difficult for people trying to comment who reside outside U.S. You aren't as familiar with some things American, including some of our slang and references, and as an American I know even less about things in France or other countries. That latter fact makes it even harder for people from other countries to post topics here, as most Americans would struggle to know how to respond. I guess we should just ask questions as needed.
The "Lost and Found" item shows a poster asking if anyone has seen a lost "cat". But the photos are of a opossum -- don't know if you have those in France -- its a larger rat-like creature, a wild animal. Apparently (from the poster) someone has a pet that is a opossum but they think it is a cat (I had read a news item years ago, where American children living in an inner city slum made pets of the rats that infested their building). Would not occur to me to have a rat or a opposum for a pet, or to think someone would not know the difference from a cat.
Part of my posting has been the personal day-to-day stuff of my life. I know not everyone is comfortable posting personal information -- and maybe aren't interested in that and would rather debate topics. But, to me, my personal stuff is most of what I care about and attend to. I am also interested in knowing if others have faced similar situations and how they felt and responded to them (sometimes advice has been good also, as Marseil was helpful in allaying some of my fears when my son first visited France).
Speaking of personal, I received results from the CT scan of my head (done due to pain I was having). Scan came out normal. They saw no abnormalities (take that Bayko!
other than the deviated nasal septum I have from having had my nose broken twice. I get a full physical exam Nov. 30th, but so far the news is good.
