The second set of Rapidshare links are DEAD, as are the links for FastShare.

First set of Rapidshare link are still working.

Thanks for the share :)

Life / Poles are not racist [873]


Good points you raise here. My girlfriend is Polish and has been here, in the UK, for almost 4 years now.

She wants to make a life for herself here and is learning the language, and making an effort ot integrate. By the same token, some of her house mates are only here to work, speak little, if any, English and make no effort to integrate. Why should they? They're only here to work, not to make a life for themselves. For what it's worth, I don't have a problem with that.

I think many Brits fail to make the distinction in this respect. Largely, because they don't understand that most migrant workers do not intend settling here.

Work / Poland Work Permit / Study Visa Processing Times [191]

Yet, thinking that I may have to do the same thing next year makes me feel depressed.

Simple solution - don't thiink about it! :)

You have all the necessary documentation (keep it safe) and now that you have been through the process once, it should be easier the second time around.

. . . or is it ????? :/

Love / Are Polish Girls scared of English Guys [124]

Firstly, why would you confine your question to English guys?

Secondly, My girlfriend is Polish and I am English - to date she's never given me any indication that she's scared of me - but I think I've never given her reason to be afraid . . .

Just my thoughts :)

Life / Child Adoption in Poland? [138]

a baby that comes to us would not want for anything. he/she would have the best of everything

Presumably this would encompass your unconditional love and devotion too . . . . ?

History / Life in communism vs democracy in Poland [234]

I think (from my biased teachings) that communism offers more security than democracy does and wondered if people who lived under communism ever had that feeling.

You've only to look toward Russia - and the ascendancy of Authoritarianism - to see how a population is reverting to its former self; based solely on the perceived benefits of former communism. The Motherland will take care of all your needs . . . from cradle to the grave.

Language / Polish Lessons Units [189]


I'm all out 'em!!! And I'm a native Brit!

Suffice to say, you have produced an excellent body of work. I sincerely hope that you feel justifiably proud of what you have achieved here.

Without your help, I wouldn't even begin to know where to start learning Polish!!

I look forward to your next post(s) with eager anticipation.
