Do you really mean to use the word 'facile'?

'Facile' is an adjective that means arrived at without due care or effort; lacking in depth...............

However, setting that aside, I wish you much luck :)

Indeed. It has a rather negative meaning, as in too easy, trite, or a bit stupid.

Hey all , did you ever remember the Moscow Tribune , well there was a lady who wrote an article every week called "My Moscow" which was about walks around Moscow ......so here is where I now become a complete idiot , I forget her name and also we met as she wanted to write a book in English about Moscow walks.....so if anyone can remember her name I would be eternally grateful. So this prompted me to set up the "Moscow Architectural Appreciation Society" or MAAS inside our company and I used to take families around the center of Moscow teaching them about each building and the history of the architecture. I can still tell anyone who wishes to know about the style , age and architect of most historic buildings in Moscow and St Pete as well , it scares the shite out of all my Russian friends.....:scared:

Yes, I recall her - she was married to an English or Scottish Diplomat! ;)

She also published a book - I will find it on my bookshelf and PM you her name as it currently escapes me at the moment!
