    That's interesting. I had often thought of going into financial advising. I always liked taxes and worked for H&R Block on season when I had been laid off, and kept working for them part time for a few seasons after that. I had a few clients I served for a few years, but it got to be too much on top of my corporate job.

    I always enjoyed Spanish classes, probably because the language came easily and its consistency helped me to better understand English construct.

    I continued to pick up those free Latino newspapers throughout my adult life in order to retain the skill set.

    Glad the newspapers helped you; they are a great tool to practice reading another languages. The only worry I have with the local papers / TV are the colloquialisms....and the non-academic meaning given to certain words. LOL

    That could be fun. I keep starting and stopping trying to learn Spanish. I have one daughter who takes to languages like a duck to water. I don't. but then, I had to use post it notes to learn to turn on the computer.

    In a sense I agree.

    But they are more "real language" informative than the deliberately slow perfect-diction speakers on the ALM records...can you dig it? ;)

    I've worked for a few multinationals (French, German, Japanese.) The Japanese company (NEC) had field techs who would travel to job sites all across the nation. I used to joke with those poor guys after they returned from Boston, Dallas, Minneapolis and Biloxi, asking them if they still knew how to speak English.

    I've tried to get into the habit of not ending my sentences in propositions. It doesn't work (in the funcionar sense, not the trabajar sense.) It no longer sounds like real English. It is way too stiff, orally and in writing.

    Did you get certified thru APICS? My last supervisor/director had a Bachelors Degree in Business and two certifications from APICS: CPM and CPIM. A previous company he worked for, paid part of the fees for him to become certified with APICS.

    All that written, I have only placed the Rev. in front of my name on a few occasions and the rest is just resume’ glitter.
