    Jeff,
    I believe the notion of
    Good things should happen to good people
    For you
    The best of the best must happen
    Good deeds never go unoriced boss.
    What goes around comes around
    At The end of tumble there is nothing for you but an endless happiness
    For me ,instead ,there is nothing but a dismal,bleaking dark

  2. Peter Says:

    Jeff ,
    If I thank u or Lucy too much sometimes
    It is because
    For the first 4 years of my stay here, I was lucked out behind the doors of this promising land.
    I tried hard to get in
    The pass code was :assimilation first
    Saddly ,I didn’t have the code
    But,You got the door for me
    You broke down the pass cod for me
    And you assimilated me linguistically and culturally
    So,
    I can’t overstate how grate full I am for what you have done for me
    I was hopeless lucked behind the large doors of the culture shock and language barrier.
    You tore down those doors for me
    Now,There you go,
    4 years after ,I m told that I m one of you guys with a wiered accent though:)
    Dude,you fell short on that part:)

    Yours
    Pete
