Mensagem: 

    Fair enough, indeed I wasn´t supposed to be among you guys (I mean, in the Forum).

    I don´t master pronounce (don´t ever get close to it), my English sucks, my grammar

is rusty, my books are dog-eared and yellowed, I don´t have much contact to natives, I need to go dictionaries to check up words...many times I am chatting and people say that some of my adages and way of talking are outdated...

    I keep trying, anyway.   I know that "where there´s a will there´s a way".    And there are people that have a knowledge in worse shape than mine (he who is beggining today!).    Plus, I have to go from the very beggining too, sometimes I am studying by myself but I have to listen a CD, DVD or something, I know well that nobody is an Island, and to learn on his own is very hard...from my own experience.

      That´s why I come here, and other places as well.

      I just was thinking aloud, maybe;  that discussing theory vs practice would take out time and deflect of the original Gerund-Infinitive discussion, but then it´s me.

      You both are my buddies just the same, regardless your opinions.  Somehow I feel you guys of EMB as a family of mine (oops, my wife is getting jealous of my "second" family!).   ;-)
