    Hi Amigos4,

    Thank you again for your backing.

    Now I understand the proper meaning of the word "mentor" as well as I feel in practice its favorable immediate effect on me. Really, I have had a need to have close to me a person like "buddy", "coach", or "master teacher". Do we need to know more about to the root of the matter of the term "mentor"?. I think "Yes. We do!"Mentor is a trusted friend, counselor or teacher usually a more experienced person. He have to provide their expertise to less experienced individuals in order to help them advance their careers, enhance their eduction, to fix and mend their behaviour and to guide their actions.

    I know something for our neighbor Mentor (from Greek mithology), a friend of Odyseus and tutor of Telemachus. A few times Athena assumes Mentor's form to give advice to Telemachus or Odyseeus. His name is proverbial for a faithful and wise adviser.

    Thank you again for your kindness.

    Regards.

    V.

    Hello Belly,

    Here you could simply say "I didn't notice", rather than "I didn't care about" the latter has a negative implication, which I'm sure you didn't intend!

    (I say this to prevent any further misunderstandings.)

    Best wishes,

    Thanks Mr Pedantic, I didn't notice is the exact phrase I wanted to use, I didn't know the latter phrase was negative
