Sometimes you can really find excellent Amazon reviews. Read this one:


By
Nikolai Krestinsky

This review is from: English Grammar For Dummies (Paperback)
When i first come to America, my english did cause me problems. In Soviet Russia i was strong teacher, my english i know is the best in all of Petropavlovsk. My brother, Mikhail, he say to me, "Nikolai you go to America, they make you rich like czar, take many woman as lover, kill many bear". My brother, he is very wise, is greatest toymaker in all of Russia. So next day i wake up, sell my house, say goodbye to wife and children, and go to America to become millionaire. Then in America, I go to job interview and they say to me "Nikolai, you are not for the job here, you are not the skills we need, your english is poor like child". I take that man and smash his table, i say "someday i will be greatest man in all of country, your children will wish me their father!". That day my anger is best of me. It is then i know i must learn better english, so i buy book "English Grammer it is for Dummies" by Mr.Woods. Now i am perfect english grammer! I write letter to Mikhail, he write back "Nikolai, your english is like a god, you will be millionaire soon! all of Petropavlovsk is proud for you! good luck brother! please send letter when you are president or maybe even czar! Hahaha! also, your wife is killed by bear". So i say thanks to Mr.Woods for his book! When i am czar your family will be spared! Hahahaha! (is joke).

I'm chilling on my last night in P'town for Women's Week. Had a great time. I do not want to go back to work on Monday! Got to meet Lee Lynch, which was very exciting--thrilling, actually, since I really was just happy to get her to sign her book for me, but we ended up talking and she's amazing. Don't know why that should surprise me.

I did a reading and enjoyed hearing Deej read from her new book--can't wait to read the whole thing! And seeing Sacchi is always a treat. It's nice to get together. We need to find our way to Germany one of these days!

I think it was the hats. LOL But I wonder if the trumpet sounds anything like whale vocalization when it goes through the glass and water. I pictured the whale thinking, What's he saying? I can't quite make it out?

What Happened When Strangers Saw A Little Boy Shivering Outside Without A Coat?

When an 11-year-old boy sat at a bus stop without a jacket in Oslo, Norway, hidden cameras captured a series of very special moments.



The experiment was filmed by the Norwegian branch of the SOS Children's Villages International charity as part of a campaign to provide warm clothing for displaced children in Syria, according to The Nordic Page.

In the video above, the majority of bystanders offer their coats or gloves to the boy.

"People should care as much about children in Syria as they care about this boy," Synne Rønning, the information head of SOS Children's Villages Norway, told The Local. She also noted that the child was a volunteer who was never in any danger during the filming.

To learn more about SOS Children's Villages International click here.

(If anyone is wondering why no one try to take him home, or if they asked what is he doing here. I read in one of the sources, that boy said how he is on school trip and waiting for his teacher who said they should meet here.)

Yes. And gotta love Norway where under their heavy parkas they wear short sleeves and sleeveless shirts!

Very cool.

There's a show here in the USA called "What Would You Do?" and it creates many situations like that. I particularly like the one where a mom had her two or three children on leashes and then tied them to a parking meter while she went shopping. LOL!

The host is John Quinones.

Here's a link to one they did called "Bullied for Being Gay: What Would You Do?"
