Greetings Everyone!

This blog is written to introduce you to the culture and daily life of the United States.

Because the American society is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural one,  I will focus on the common items that transcend the many cultures and the experiences that Americans encounter in everyday life.  The society is very diverse, therefore, the blogs I write will not apply to every person, but in a general sense.  Hopefully enough information will be provided to help you imagine that "You Are There!"

The U.S. Presidential campaigning for the Republican and Democratic Party nominees is well on its way. The gloves were taken off at the very beginning, but now it's way off the hook and has turned into a knockdown, drag-out fight.

Nevertheless, within a few months we'll know for sure who the nominees will be and then the next phase will begin to determine who will be the next U.S. president. Stay tuned!
