You might be enlightened to learn how the French look at conditions like ADD/HD.  I find this as fascinating as those sights and smells you brag about, Lol.

I find it fascinating that you gleaned that from the comments here, since at least a couple of us had read the blog awhile go, you know in a quest for learning about our children's disabilities.  I find it a bit shocking that you would continue to use children's disabilities (whether or wether not you agree with them) as a weapon in a debate.  That doesn't reflect well.

I plan to get to Italy before I die, I'll pass on France and Greece and Spain (unless of course I decide to hop a tour bus with church friends!). It just amazes me how culturally diverse some appear to be but how limited that must be at the same time.

Based on an internet board?  Allrighty then,.

Why do you believe they are worldly?

They travel a lot, all over, and have learned many customs from all of the world.

Well even if she did notice, I think the point is to not break script, at his time.

So then why don't you believe others here (having done the same thing, including living in foreign countries) are just as worldly?

Jambles, I have never once used the adjective "worldly" to describe myself. Never. You are imagining things. You are the one you applied that label, then want to dispute it. Go right ahead, but it's all on you.
