People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;It was never between you and them anyway.

BBC spanish was fairly enjoyable and I think I learned something but after the easy bit it changed quickly to being too difficult
The most success I seemed to have is with the Michel Thomas language tapes mainly because it involves no writing or remembering. I seem to have learned a lot about the structure and tenses but am a bit lacking on the vocabulary and actually speaking and listening lol which doesnt help in conversations.
Recently I obtained a copy of rosetta stone after much trial and error on the pirate high seas and I have to say Im not overjoyed by the method.I mean I can click away at pictures and get the questions right but I dont actually remember anything later.
I would be interested to hear about other peoples methods and results
here are some not so useful phrases
Me burro esta muerto
- My donkey is dead
No me gustan los caballos
- I don't like horses.
¿Donde puedo comprar un bigote falso para mi perro?
- Where can I buy a large brown fake Moustache for my dog?
Soy Zod, el master de la destruccion. Mi mision es gobernar tu debil pais y esclavizar a sus piltrafillas por toda la eternidad. MMMWwwwhhhaaaa Hhhaa hhaaa haaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Hello I'm pleased to meet you
A mi llama se le ha caido una pata y querria comprar una rueda de repuesto, por favor.
- The leg has fallen off of my Llama and so I'd like to buy some sort of replacement wheel please.
Con este bigote, yo te desposo.
- With this fake Moustache, I thee wed.........
!Acerquense y vean! Una oportunidad de ver a un perro con un cuchillo zumbando a un caballo con una pistola.
- Rol up, Roll up. A once in a lifetime oppertunity to see a dog with a knife fight a horse with a gun.
Una vez construi un ordenador de arena utilizando ramitas y trozos de cuerda.
I once built a computer out of sand using twigs and large pieces of rope.

After a lot of trials and errors I can now watch bbc and itv from my home in the Dominican Republic - it seems the way to do it is to first download the browser firefox and keep this solely for the this purpose....next you need to download a firefox add on called foxy proxy....then the fun starts of trying to find a uk based proxy number that works (I think I was lucky with my third attempt - contact me if you want to try the same one)
Unfortunately you cant use the bbc downloader option as it recognises that you are abroad so you have to watch it on your computer - the speed seems ok most of the time if you are not doing any other downloading
The only way to record anything seems to be with download capture devices , which dont give very good quality play back
Another unfortunate thing is that now I cracked the holey grail I found the programs were not as good as I remembered them lol .....perhaps wanting something is better than actually getting it
