To bake a marmalade roll, you need slab marmalade. Ufortunately, it's nearly impossible to find, and jar marmalade is no good: it leaks out of the roll onto the baking sheet.

Thanks to Mexicans though, Lucky (Save Mart, nee Albertson's) carries mexican slab marmalade, which is good enough.

When we were buying it, the clerk asked if it was sweet. We said, it should be, but we want to try it. She said, many people were buying it. So why didn't she ask them? They do not speak English.

I really appreciate how our Mexican friends bring the slab marmalade and tongue with them, but please, learn English. It's not that hard. If I did it, so can you.

One of the new observations in the latest government report on immigrants has been that if they attain such a critical mass there is a greater likelihood of social and political isolation.

Thus, many can get by without having to learn local customs and the language spoken locally.

Would this be the case in Tracy?
