Dear friends! I have just joined the EC as my wife has been its member for many years and always talks about you. We do have a lot in common, but why not to have more? I am a native speaker and hope to be useful. But no grammar questions, please! Tanya says I am illiteral and I always ask her to correct my articles before having them published.
A few words about myself. I have been born and raised in Boston. My mother and my grandfather were university teachers at Harvard and I grew up with the idea that education, knowledge, common sense and human reason are the most valuable in this world. However, living through my life I realized there is much more to it! But being a university teacher I should tell you: knowledge is our main power. It is not weapons that makes us stronger, it is only our desire to make this word better than it is.
I'd like to show you the place where we live. It is really wonderful. I have been living in Florida for 30 years and I swear, I have never seen such beauty although I traveled much. We live in a rather small town called Crystal River, in the mid-Florida. It is at the west coast, not far from Tampa. The fact is that the river is really very clean. Its water is transparent and one can see everything on the bottom. I am not a master of photo, so I will add the one from the net. You won't believe that ocean creachers like lamatees live here. I have no idea who permitted to build a nuclear power station here! Anyway, come to our land and be our guests or stay forever.
