I was not really on holidays (in my boyfriend's home) but we considered that as holidays. We can't be on holidays because we are both unemployed...


Nice to talk you all again!!!


Is someone is good in botanic? I have this cactus but I can't find its real name, and so I can't take care completly of it


I think it's a Crassula, but wath kind of crassula? May be Crassula Namaquensis? I am not very sure. I give that complicate name because there are the same in french and english, not as common name.

Thanks a lot girsl, I'm happy to see you ask me so soon!!


PS: all my photos were taken with my new digi camera... lol

Europeans are always on holidays! lol

and french work 35 hours per week, rarely more.

But me it's different because I'm unemployed... lol I can't call that "holidays". I can say I took good time in another place with my "fiancé" (my boyfriend)

How are you tony?

Hi Marie, doing well! Wow 35 or less? OMG, some of us Americans are working 60+ hours per week.

What I meant is that Europeans have 8 weeks/year off paid holiday from the employer, right?

8? oh yes, may be. But in tourism industries we work also around 50 hour per week. And independant craftsmen also work a lot more than 35 hours, of course.

We had 5 weeks of payed holidays in 1981, so now may be 8.

Hi and welcome back Marie! I love the name Marie...that is my middle name!
I'm sure you and your fiance enjoyed your time together.

The cactus was very neat looking. It looks similar to a Jade plant I have seen.

I do not have any info as to how to take care of it though. You could do a search on the web and probably get some info.

Have a nice day

We usually get about 24/25 days holidays & if your office closes for 2 weeks over Xmas some of your paid holiday leave comes out of that. Think overall most people get about 20/21 days. How many days holidays do you guys in the US get?

Oh your kidding right? If you are new on a job, less than 1-2 years, you MIGHT get 1 week paid off (5 days). MIGHT! Alot of companies will give you more if you have been there like 15-20 years, but usually the MAX anyone ever gets is like 4 weeks paid vacation days. We are not like Europe with paid holidays

Ok well the rest of Europe must get great holidays so compared to us in Ireland. Everyone is always giving out here that we don't have good holidays

(example: I am out sick Monday for whatever reason, then again Thursday something else comes up and I'm out sick ..that's 2 occurances) ...HOW STUPID is that? And they are real quick to tell you that you have these BENNIES (sick days) ..oh yeah ..and WHERE is the benefit of that?
I know in Italy ...just about EVERYONE took off for siesta in August ..that was HOLIDAY ...alot of the stores were closed ..because everyone was OFF! NICE! Take a whole month off (only if I get paid too). LOL

Kinda like some insurance companies out here... they sell you glass insurance - but if you break a windshield & get it replaced, they'll cancel you - go figure LOL

I love how Europeans call their vacations "holidays." I'm going to start doing that so I can mix it up a bit.
