    He/she is also just copying posts made earlier, rather than putting down anything new.

    Just wanted to say 'HI' to Mike Cash san !! I have a number of Brazilian friends in the Nagano area. The Japanese folks from around here don't seem to worry much at all.

    Hi Mike !!

    Hi Mike !!
    Hi there!

    We have enough Brazilians around here that I have often lamented not taking Portuguese in university. At the time, I couldn't imagine any possible future need of it.

    Come to think of it, that's the same reason I didn't take Spanish in high school. I heard the term "Hispanic community" in a story about Georgia the other day. Twenty five years ago I was of the opinion that no Southern state (I don't count Florida as a Southern state) would ever have communities of Spanish speakers, and I didn't envision myself going to where they are.

    The word "community" is commonly misused nowadays. While I obviously didn't read that article, it could have been referring simply to the hispanic population of Georgia. Then again, Hispanic immigrants to the US do have a way of colonizing and clustering in various areas.

    There are areas of Florida that are just as southern as anywhere else. Still, I hear that there are areas of Miami where a working knowledge of Spanish is almost essential.

    That's hefty reward for Brazilian born Japanese descent repatriates.
