    Watch yourself and keep your valuables locked up. Nothing but a bunch of liberal lazy socialists from Spain. Except my boy Sergio Garcia, and I think he lives in Switzerland. Keep an eye on that free loading illegal you have.

    He's from Spain.

    I think it's a cool way for young people to learn, and at the same time having a great adventure! Lucky kids!


    Most nights he hangs out with hubby and me watching movies!
    I don't know though if he's catching on to what we're doing whenever we go out doing groceries - he's helping hauling in cases of water, and canned stuffs.

    (A Watchman can't help but wonder if Ms Charito's foreign exchange student is named Radiency .....and has been using the "family" computer to access PF in his spare time???)

    I hear you about socialists. We haven't really discussed politics though he was interested in the debate between Trump and Hillary. He stayed up to watch it with me, but he gave up halfway thru.


    Being foster parents too, we've been "programmed" to make sure all meds and valuables are locked up....so yes I understand what you mean. It's hard not to be cynical with kids these days, what with all the proliferation of drugs and who knows what goes in kids' minds nowadays.

    Thanks for the advice, though.

    Btw, the program we're with must be quite different from yours.
    The student we have is not an EXCHANGE student.

    Our foreign student is not illegal since he's gone through whatever they have to go through in order to be able to study here.
    He's got the papers he needs and he's with an agency that has direct ties with the school board.
    He's not a free loader either.....his parents had paid for everything.
    From what I've heard from experienced hosts, most foreign students come from well-to-do families.

    The agency is a private business that employs people from liaison officers, to relations managers, etc all over the region....and hire contract drivers and buses for trips - so the program helps create jobs.

    I don't think so.
    Btw, our foreign student can't use the host's computer - that's one of the rules.

    My youngest brother went to a real ivy league high school.

    Went on a full scholarship, family could not have afforded it otherwise.

    Was great for him and within walking distance from our home.

    The school is world famous, and hosts elite's from all over the world.

    Those kids had every paper needed to be here and wanted for nothing.

    They drove Bugatti's, Maserati's, Porch's, Ferrari's and all kinds of other sports cars which I could not afford the wheels for.

    About half of them had personal bodyguards, those kids came from the families of leaders of countries.

    The ones I met were quite nice, but none were muzslimes, and they had nothing but disdain for allahole and his minions.

    One time, he was with one of them in Lewiston Main with a broke down car, called me for a ride home at 10 PM, this was in December.

    The kid was from the ruling class of some country in Southeast Asia.

    I told the I would be there in an hour and a half to two.

    It is straight line about 125 miles from the then home.

    Visibility was clear and unlimited that night, flew the plane right up there in a little over an hour and picked them up.

    Here is the crux of this story, my little bastard brother told the kid it was HIS AIRPLANE and I was his personal pilot!!!

    Yeah, he learned quickly.

    He is the one who I refer to as the doctor on here.

    Smart enough to get a fellowship to med school, graduated with honors.

    Make me look like a rock.
