By the way may i ask you, you're American or Englishman? Your English, in my view, is magnificent
I'm Belgian, Flemish actually, and as such English is my 4th language after the 3 official Belgian languages ( Dutch, French & German).
If my english is good, then all credits for that go to an exceptionnaly good education system in Belgium. In school, when we had exams, my english results were always around 55-60%, which isn't really good I reckon, but then again, I never really 'studied' hard.
By the way, your english is just fine, I understand it.
Let me know how it works out with your scenario's, the both of you, ok?
