I've raved and posted the works of Kseniya Simonova since she was pointed out to me in 2009 - before she went on to win Ukraine's got Talent

Thanks for that reference point.

Ochka got notice in US mail today that her Naturalization interview has been scheduled for late March 2019.

A big surprise because all previous correspondence had indicated a target date of August 2019.

At the interview she will be tested on reading, writing and speaking English; and on her knowledge of the government and history of the United States.

She will have no trouble with the English and, although the second part is not that difficult, it will still be a hassle to study for given her heavy course load already.

The part about American history and how the US government works isn't difficult. There are videos on Youtube that will give her all the information.

My wife had no problems with the American history part of the test. I doubt she spent much more than 5 or 6 hours reading and testing herself in the months prior to the interview. I'd quiz her from time to time. 

She met people who passed the English knowledge test who couldn't do much more than say Hello and Thank you and count to 100 yet they somehow passed the English comprehension test.

Dave, yes I know the government and history part is not difficult stuff.
But that is not the point for wife.

She has practically zero time for such given her existing coursework and teaching.
We were expecting August, which would have given her several summer hours to spend on the study.

ahh I remember those days!!!
yes, get the most recent cheat sheet off the interweb and print it
leave on the kitchen table go over and help her memorize the questions, my wife said cheat sheet was essentially the actual test
my wife knew EVEN LESS than the average Trump voter about American History and System of Government
my wife actually has a negative score on this subject, meaning not only has she zero points but she's able to lower the points of people in close proximity of her
BUT she memorized the cheat sheet and got nearly a perfect score
I took all the credit of course for the cheat sheet
as my reward for helping
every morning for a month my wife had to sit naked at the foot of the bed with her feet tucked under her
her back arched and her breasts protruding straight forward
and she must ask me, "yes, master how may I serve you?"
and whatever I say, she has to do it, no matter what it is
and you know what's really bad?
I didn't tell her the correct time, I got 37 instead of 31 days!!!!
anyway, it worked for me!
you can use it if you want
got any of your own?

if ya gotta Russian woman problem...
in yur neigh-bor-hood!
who ya gonna call?

Master.  I prefer to be called sir.  It certainly makes waiters and bar tenders do a double take when your partner calls you sir in public.

American history.  Deny Viking landings.  Slaughter indigenous population or use bio logical weapons against them as in diseases they were not immune too.  Slaughter indigenous peoples food source.  Turn up late for 2 world wars and from then on meddle and try to influence the whole world as the self declared leaders of the world claim Christianity for the usa .  Try to hoard and control world resources.  Like all civilisations from as far back in time as you can go start to collapse under it's own weight.  There you go usa history in a nut shell.  Apart from the internal mess of intolerant cultures and races.

American history.  Deny Viking landings. 

Actually a number of American universities have done studies on Vikings trips to modern day Canada and the US. There've been studies that have suggested the Vikings might have gotten as far as parts of the central US. Don't recall any studies saying the Vikings didn't land in the US. If these studies exist they'd probably be outnumbered by studies of Viking travels in the US.

Slaughter indigenous population or use bio logical weapons against them as in diseases they were not immune too.  Slaughter indigenous peoples food source.

Jamesukjames did you study UK and US history in school? Long before the US existed the UK and other European powers were in the Americas fighting indigenous peoples and stealing their food and resources.

These same European powers were doing the same in Africa and parts of Asia at the same time. When you have a moment google the map of the countries that the UK has invaded. It covers most of the world. 

Turn up late for 2 world wars

Both world wars started in Europe. Enough said.

and from then on meddle and try to influence the whole world as the self declared leaders of the world

The UK did the same for centuries in years past. UK fought France and Spain to maintain that title. Besides as mentioned above Europe wasn't very stable for most of the 20th century so some country had to take charge.

claim Christianity for the usa .

Haven't heard of that particular claim although the FBI and other law enforcement agencies have charged many clergy in the Catholic Church with child rape. Is that what you're referring to?


 Try to hoard and control world resources.

Again I mention in the past when the UK was a world power they raped and plundered countries around the globe for food and resources. The US  has a great deal of resources. Add in agreements with Canadian companies and in North America alone we have considerably more. If you read the business section you'll see China is doing the same. Striking deals with Russia and countries in Asia and especially Africa.


Like all civilisations from as far back in time as you can go start to collapse under it's own weight.  There you go usa history in a nut shell.  Apart from the internal mess of intolerant cultures and races.

True. Greece eventually fell. Rome eventually fell. The Mongol Empire eventually fell. The UK eventually fell. Like all superpowers or empires eventually America will be #2 or worse to some new superpower(s). It will likely be a while though.

China has enough problems and many have speculated that China won't be able to make the leap to #1 global superpower due to internal and external struggles. I could be wrong, perhaps any children you might have should learn Mandarin? Personally I think the world would be far worse off if China and/or Russia were the world's only superpower(s).

I am confined to house with a bad cold.
Wife is out bringing in firewood for our wood furnace.
I feel bad about that.
Even worse, next week is her Spring Semester break and we had planned a lot of outdoor work.

But to cheer me up:  (1) a 6,000 square foot house is under construction in my development.
(2) Possibly will sell another acre parcel in next few weeks.

Wife is making some progress on the 100 Citizenship Questions despite only having time to read through one time.
I made note of the 15 or so she stumbled around with, and will retest her on those.
Only about 11 days to go.

How many of you knew that Maine and Vermont were not part of the original 13 states . . . liars.

Hah.  All you have to do is look at the dates on the quarters you have in your pocket.  Those quarters came out based on the date that the state joined the union - or in the case of the original 13 colonies, when they ratified the constitution.   First state?   Delaware., etc.  How many remember when West Virginia became a state .... and why?

I was sick a lot around that time period, so don't remember a lot of what happened.
