You can check the article about Poland weekends. Many clean barns, but not necessarily on the weekends.

Some Poles don't believe in working on Sundays.
I know a few such Poles who won't do anything on a Sunday. They won't mow the lawn, trim the bushes, clean the barn or go weed the garden because they consider that work. They say it's God's day and is a time to rest.

On Sundays families get together and eat dinner and just visit each other and talk about stuff and gossip. Then go for a spacer, to the park, get some delicious pastry from the bakery. People in Poland walk a lot that keeps them slim.

People in the US could learn a great deal from taking sunday off and beiing with family. MAybe families would last longer here if this were true.

On the rare occasion that we would visit other Polish friends on weekends, I can fondly recall the abundant food. I remember eating lots of gherkins, pickled herring on black bread, as well as beetroot soup etc. Never liked the desserts though - the cakes were always too dry! I remember one ocasion where an old babcia gave my four year old brother a glass of brandy that she thought was blackcurrant juice - good memories.

Unfortunately, now where I live, there is hardly any Polish community let alone Polish delicatessens. I'm lucky to find a jar of Globus brand gherkins or plum powidl, which annoys me.

The good old days! Polish delicatessens still exist on the south side of Chicago. It is well worth the trip. I try to get up there once a year to Bobaks market MMMMM I can smell it still! As for the cakes Well... I think we need to let the French do the baking or the Germans. That is ok with me.

I don't know about that. The best bakery by me in the north burbs of Detroit is a Polish Bakery.

They enjoy using their hands to make things but they are not really lovers of culture, opera and classical music and deep culture. They enjoy welding and riveting things together more than literature and deep philosophy.

I have lived outside Poland for over 20 years and I strayed from this national pastime, so I haven't even taught my daughter how to weld things together yet.

Oh no, they are the best. I can't stand the gooey, sticky, sugary pastries. I take the polish ones over any other choices at any time.

Okay, I'll admit that ponski (correct spelling??) are one of my favourites. It could also have been the fault of the old crones who were cooking the desserts too.

Didn't you protest in this thread of yours URL : "Are polish pupils harming native british childrens education?" How could they be doing it if they live in Poland?

If you really intend to be a lawyer the only option I see for you is being notary public. Simply improve your spelling and go through life banging those seals on documents people need certified. Other than that, for the purpose of the legal profession you are brain dead.
