    Any language that doesn't use our alphabet strikes me as harder to learn than the languages that are in our alphabet, but both Chinese and Japanese, as well as quite a few other languages, have added complications, like depending on intonation for meaning. A language that is read from right to left means another added complication.

    Heavily inflected languages like German or Russian are often harder for English-speakers to learn.

    Agate, I found German to be guttural sounding and not a pretty language, but I did find it a little easier to pick out a lot of words than French. The French language is a pretty spoken language to me.

    Jeanie, what a day you and your friend had. I wonder what that first guy from AAA was thinking. I am glad you got to go to the fair and that you have enjoyed having Kim there with you. Are you going to get the van checked out?

    :) I think my backup camera kept staying on and ran the battery down. After sitting awhile it worked. I unplugged the camera so it won't stay on. It started right up several times today so I will wait to take it for a checkup. Jeanie :)

    I was just reading on my iPhone and saw an article regarding real estate taxes. Some people are being hit particularly hard because there is a maximum on what can be claimed under mortgage and property taxes on Federal income taxes. This came about due to new tax law that was passed in 2017. People in California, especially around San Francisco are moving to Nevada and some to Florida. (I don't think Florida has state income tax) North Carolina does so all you Yankees stay where you are. New York and Massachusetts also have very high property taxes.

    So, found it interesting that people are being hurt because of new tax law passed in 2017.
