Subject: RE: Melting pot muddles.
When we lived in North London our neighbours were an Israeli man (not terribly observant Jew) married to a Catholc girl of Chinese origin. Their two sons' Chinese grandfather had limited English. I used to tell them that if they grew up speaking English, Hebrew and Mandarin they'd make a fortune as UN translators. The parents were very hospitable (he was a trained chef)and threw three New Year bashes!
