Why,it's a multicultural extravaganza around here,lol.

We're having a ton of work done to the outside of our house,starting today. The contractor who owns the company doing the work is Israeli.His crew is hispanic, except for one guy who is from India.Once the new siding is up,the painters will be coming in and most of those guys are Italian.

And you haven't lived until you've heard an Israeli speak fluent Spanish,lol(Hubby says the guy speaks something like 9 languages,all fluently).Which goes to show ya,we CAN all get along,at least when it comes to working.And yes,all those hispanic guys are legal immigrants,Mr Israeli Contractor dude can't hire illegals and then get a contract with the company my hubby works for.(which means also we're getting a great deal on all this work since my hubby approves all the contractors before they get hired by his company and have thrown them lots of business over the years.My big question was whether we were allowed to use the people who also end up working for hubby on his job,so he asked his bosses who said,sure,why not? It doesn't have a thing to do with his job,since we hired them ourselves.)

So,for the next 3 or 4 weeks,there's gonna be alot of hammering,sawing,ripping and tearing and who knows what else going on around here.Oh,and the last 3 windows that need replacing will be taken care of too.Now maybe my house will hold heat in the winter and stay cooler in the summer.And that ugly siding will be a thing of the past,AND finally the house will be the color I wanted it painted 9 yrs ago,lol.
