    За русский тоже не мешало бы попростить прощения.
    "Американские люди" меня просто вырубили.

    Да, делаю ошибки иногда. Американские люди, не судите строго. Для начала я расскажу о городе в котором живу.

    Городу 270 лет. Лет 150 назад он назывался "Рыбная слобода". Рыбинск был столицей бурлаков. Здесь жили богатые купцы. В Рыбинске находилась хлебная биржа и мучная биржа.

    Re: Why such grey outmn in Russia? Thoughts aloud.

    В старой части города сохранился дом семьи Шенкерман, которая уехала в Америку в начале 20 века. В этой семье были два мальчика Иосиф и Николай. В штатах они изменили фамилию на Шенк. И назвались Джозеф и Ник Шенк. Джозеф шенк основал в дальнейшем Метро-Голден-Майер студию в Голливуде, и принял участи в основании национальной киноакадемии. Вот.

    А почему такая дискриминация? Почему только "американские люди", почему не все остальные иностранцы, читающие этот форум и изучающие русский язык?

    Greetings Vitaly,

    I am new to this forum and I do not speak any Russian nor have I been to Russia. I have been posting on this site to learn because I have been writing a fictional book for my young daughter and one of the characters has a Russian background.

    I have lived in many parts of the United States (Washington D.C. area, New York, California, Illinois & Florida) and traveled to over half of the states in the United States. My husband is from El Salvador. I have also traveled to El Salvador, France, Germany, Switzerland, and Puerto Rico.

    I don’t believe that all the people in the world are the same; but, I don’t need to look so very far away to get my answer. My older sister and I are only two and a half years apart; yet, no one who knows us can believe that we are sisters. Our values and beliefs are completely different. Besides having the same mother and father, we literally have nothing in common. I might actually have more in common with you than her!

    During my travels, I have found that everywhere I go there are some people who yes, are similar to me in my values and experiences and others who are not. It is what makes traveling so enjoyable for me. I get to learn. The day I stop learning is the day I die.

    The same as with this site. I get to learn about you, your culture, how you are different and possibly how similar you are to me.
    Regards, Rockzmom

    rockzmom, despite the fact that there’s a female on your avatar, she may be even you, I thought you were a man until you mentioned your husband in that post above.

    Are you dissapointed? Curious as to what in my style of writing made you think that.

    No, I can assure you that I am a female.

    It's okay as though as I just learned last night that Оля is female and I thought she was a guy. It is harder for me as I am use to names ending in "A's" being only female and I have learned that Russian nicknames ending "A" can be a male.

    So, what about you, male or female???

    We must thank Vitaly for posting her question and allowing us to clear this all up. And to think I almost did not respond to her. This goes to show you must be brave with your postings.

    I am not upset in any way, I think this is rather funny. I have been married to my HUSBAND for 17 years.

    Please, what have I said that made you all think I was a man? My screen name says 'MOM' in it so I am rather confused here. It is not like you Оля who has a man for an avatar and a name that I have no clue on Earth how to even pronounce.

    So where is our communication breakdown between the two worlds?

    Interesting, I also am curious why. I think for English speakers, it is evident she'd be female... Her avatar and the word "mom" in the nick made it to me obvious to me!

    BTW: In America, at least some places, if someone writes they have a husband... it could still mean they are male!

    Edit: I see Prop 8 in California won, so it is illegal for two people of the same gender to get married here (again)

    Grrghhhhhh. Vitaly is a MALE name!!!

    Please, what have I said that made you all think I was a man?
    Well, as for me...
    First. Your avatar means nothing: TATY has Alla Pugachova's photo in his avatar, and still he's a male. Your username is too complicated, I didn't realize that "***om" (which looks male) really was "mom".
    Second. I'm used that the overwhelming majority of foreigners on this forum are male. Newbies too.
    Third. I've been assured several times by men that some other man, famous and rich, was attractive. Those men didn't believe me when I said I didn't like him.

    It is not like you Оля who has a man for an avatar and a name that I have no clue on Earth how to even pronounce.
    Well, Оля is a female name. And my avatar is just... a present of a friend.

    So sorry Vitaly. I am use to names ending in "ly" being female. I must unlearn everything for this forum.

    TATY has Alla Pugachova's photo in his avatar, and still he's a male.
    Didn't know that one. Thought it was really a photo of Taty!!! Thanks for letting me know.
    Anyone else I should know about??

    Your username is too complicated,
    I did not realize it would be complicated or cause confusion.

    Re: Why such grey outmn in Russia? Thoughts aloud.

    We have again a gray day today in Rybinsk. Two days ago there was a snow rainfall and a pretty winter day with snowy spruces, but today allready snow is thaw down and everywhere dirt on the streets. / Сегодня у нас опять серый день в Рыбинске. Два дня назад был снегопад - приятный зимний денёк с заснежнными елями, но уже сегодня всё растаяло и везде на улицах грязь.
