I am only so sorry that I broke my humorous bone and missed this tribute, Funny back around the early 80's I had a broken arm and Chuck pulled me up on stage to dance and signed my cast. I danced with him on stage and a few other girls joined us and we were mentioned in the Scene magazine! God bless Chuck Berry! Long live Rock N Roll!
- "Sound and Vision" -
I am a graduate of the English Nanny & Governess School - class of 1995. I am amazed at the feedback this lawsuit has brought. Some with valid points, others not. While having reviewed different articles regarding this lawsuit and the ensuing comments, I am dumbfounded as to the "lynch mob" mentally stated in the articles as well as the reviews of those articles. Quite frankly...I am appalled at the lack of respect and objectivity with which this case has generated. Former graduates and non-graduate students making references as if all the students and graduates felt the same. Please don't because that is not an accurate representation of the rest of us. I acknowledge that Mr. Gaylord and Mrs. Roth have made mistakes throughout their careers...so have I.
The school does have to re-evaluate some of the more valid comments made. For example:
- The school does put too much emphasis on profits and not enough on a "well-fit" match between client and graduate.
- Mr. Gaylord's demeanor can be putting off to some, but not all.
- Mrs. Roth does talk "above" the audience instead of to them. Yes, those of us who have heard her are aware of this, and yes, she does need to work on this. Having said this, SHE DOES NOT DESEERVE DISREPECTFUL AND UGLY COMMENTS - NO ONE DOES! SHE IS A HUMAN BEING LIKE YOU AND ME. PERIOD!!
- The English Nanny & Governess School does need to revamp their security screening for both potential students and clients.
- The communication between owners, G.M., staff, students, former and current graduates, and clients needs to more effective and efficient to prevent misunderstandings and to promote understanding.
- Everyone, and I do mean everyone, needs to take ownership of their part in all this including Ms. Cruz.
I understand that some of the examples stated seem trivial, but they are not. In order to get things fixed some times it means tackling the small stuff first.
My experiences with Mrs. Roth during my time at the school and at INA conferences have found her to be warm, pleasant, kind, professional, and quite frankly, a joy to be around. As to the school befitting this comment "...whether these families are physically, emotionally or sexually abusive seems to be fairly irrelevant" and "We are pressured to say whatever we have to say (even if it is untrue) in order to make a good impression on interviews." it is unfounded to say the least. The commenter was stating a feeling of how she felt...it is her perception not a FACT. My experiences and perceptions are completely different; therefore, I see Mr. Gaylord, Mrs. Roth, and the English Nanny & Governess School in a different light.
THERE ARE TWO THINGS LEFT TO NOTE:
- RESPECT is given not earned and it is trust that is earned.
- For those of you who see and/or experienced the imperfectness of Mr. Gaylord, Mrs. Roth, and the ENGS please forgive them and move on. They are not monsters. And for those of us who are grateful to what they have done in the nanny industry... THEY NEED TO HEAR YOUR VOICES! Please step forward and speak.
Here is a quote worth remembering:

Welcome to downtown... what an amazing, beautiful and sexy space: awesome!

This is a terrible policy. The Cavs are disrupting the liquidity of the secondary ticket market. Expect fewer transactions and more empty seats - especially during weeknight games.
Uncle Vic's "Windians" isn't "Go Joe Charboneau" -- but it barrels around the bases.
Ticket scalping gone legal when it's an online resale site -- as if the tickets were found on the ground miles from the box office.
Where is bigot clown? He epitomizes my statement above.
If you're playing Blackjack online, you're a sucker.
It's funny how for liberals - words speak louder than actions. I shop at Steelyard Walmart. I don't have a problem with it. But if you state the obvious, you're a villain.
It's kind of like how liberals think Bill Clinton is cool because he sexually assaulted people, but Trump is bad because he talked about it.
Liberalism is all about pretense.
Oh Chuckles, you're such a negative, hateful bigot. And pretty stupid too.
I was thinking the population of the inner city regardless of color, but sure, it is dominated by one color. The problem isn't skin color though. It's a culture of crime, theft, poverty, etc.
But it's funny how liberals want to pretend like it's not. I don't know what word you want me to substitute for liberals. Idiots?
We don't want the Cubs to have a chance to win the series, because if they win, we will have the longest drought.
Crazy, man, crazy! Praying for Cubs vs. Tribe!
Too bad this didn't happen years ago, or it might have been "praying for Trib vs. Tribe..."
(as in Tribune Company, the former owners, who also owned the newspaper and WGN)

The proximity and the historical import of a SOUTH Side World Series berth? Fix it, you silly jamoke!
The Cubs play in Wrigley, which is on the NORTH Side. It's the White Sux who play on the South Side, at whatever the fuck they're calling their ballpark this week. And yeah, the rich yupster Cub fans will buy up all the remaining tickets at the Jake.
And if Chicago wins, you can also forget about Tribe vs. Cubs on the NORTH Side...whatever the "secondary market" ticket prices are in Cleveland, and no matter what scalper you choose to deal with, multiply by a factor of five or six. At least. Maybe ten. That's why the cameras constantly zoom in on the likes of high-rollers like Eddie Vedder and Bill Murray.
Unless you have more than a few grand to spend, per game, you will be out in the Wrigleyville streets, as I will be. City streets that will put Bourbon Street and Mardi Gras to shame. Zillions of drunken frat boys. You will see more beat cops (no pun intended) and horse cops than there were at the RNC. It will be complete and total madness! A human zoo! A nuthouse on fire! Can't wait!

My wife and I attended last year...it was madness...the crowds were unbelievable. Much better spot than trendy,overpopulated Ohio City. The fest just got too big for that hip venue.
Yeah, it was bright and sunny and in the 60s...in February! But you also neglected to mention that when the wind shifted and began blowing off the lake, and became much stronger over time, the temperature dropped a good 20-30 degrees in the late afternoon, and the wind chill cut to the bone.
It's definitely a cool urban location (no pun intended) under the Shoreway. But a location in such close proximity to the lake, especially in late winter, will always guarantee some...interesting...(as the TV weather folks call them) weather conditions.
Snow, biting wind, chilly temps, or maybe all three.
Hey, WTF... what do you expect? It's Cleveland, it's wintertime, it's the Flats. You guys picked it!

This article is HILARIOUS and soooooo true! I've walked out of Walmart Steelyard leaving a full cart of stuff........throwing my hands up and just saying fuuuuuuuuuug it because it was so bad in there! A complete waste of time!
Thank the Bible-thumping mofos in Columbus for making North Missitucky great again.
If there's a new way to screw things up, this state will find it.

He never mentions his work with Public Image Ltd...I'd love to hear about his experience with John Lydon and the albums he recorded then.
He had a "Merrittorious" performance.
