be that as it may the point is that he was pretty successful regardless and his kids and grand kids are even more so. Also bear in mind if you were in a small town its pretty much a neccesity to integrate, in Vancouver it was hardly neccesary.

the funniest thing about my punjabi grandmother is seeing her interact with her chinese neighbor. They can barely speak english but they go to the killarney pool every other day together.
