    There are a couple of good books out there that Ari should consider reading.

    'How to Overcome Jealousy! How to Stop Jealousy Dead in Its Tracks' by Rebecca Steel

    and

    ANGER MANAGEMENT: How To Overcome Your Anger Issues And Control Your Temper (Anger, Self Esteem, Jealousy, Self Help, Emotional Abuse) by Mark Arnold

    Such tattletales. You are so right. To accuse someone of wanting to be American is really insulting.

    No need to thank me. I did not do it for your benefit. I did it for all those who have to put up with such anger and jealousy from you!

    Someone keeps reporting me for a lot less than 'are-so'! Reminds me of my little grandchildren, "gramma he said a bad word, he said dumb!" Everyone loves a tattletale!

    Right now I am reading World War 2 by Winston Churchill. Interesting to see the War from the British Leaders point of view.

    Just finished Half Broke Horses and The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. Very good reads. Just started Divergent by Veronica Roth - so far so good!
