Can you explain el odio jarocho? Not familiar with that term. Did you mean by that el odio mas rencoroso?

I had to look up both adjectives in my big honkin' dictionary. I'd never heard either one before.

Jarocho/a....boorish, brusque, rude, uncouth

Rencoroso/a...rancorous, spiteful

One easy way of recognizing a word is through english/spanish cognates.

e.g. Famous/famoso
Curious/curioso
Fabulous/fabuloso

Then there are adjectives using Spanish words which we need to learn such as chisme, chiste, mentira.

Chisme, noun, is the gossip of the day. The adjective is chismoso/a depending on who the gossiper is.
Chiste, noun, is something funny or humourous. The adjective is chistoso/a depending on whether the humourist is male or female.
Mentira, noun, is a lie. The adjective for a person who lies on a repeated basis is mentiroso/a. Male or female.

Surprisingly this works quite frequently, and is a useful trick to have up your sleeve.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
raq

Jarocho is the word used to describe people/things from Veracruz. Like tapatío for people/things from Guadalajara.

Example:

The people are called jarochos

El son jarocho is the style of music typical to Veracruz. It uses the harp which is called el arpa jarocha.

El odio jarocho is supposedly a more more rancorous or deeper hatred and use of the term is very common, whether in jest or in serious connotation.

Te odio con odio jarocho! leaves no doubt that the other person hates your guts!

Lighten up ferret, the term was made popular by a comedian who did a character of a rat from Veracruz named "Crispin".Word of the Day - Page 2 El-raton-crispin-o-ay-guey

2. Para mí, lo más valioso son mis hijos.

From the verb valer: to be worth something.

EXAMPLE

No vale la pena.
It's not worth the bother.

Este carro vale mucho dinero.
This car is worth a lot of money.

Me vale.
I don't care or it's worth nothing to me.

There are some slang terms commonly heard using the last example but I am afraid they may offend the sensitive.

It isn't necessarily Mexican Spanish, the v in Spanish is pronounced like a soft b, not like the b in your name and not like the English v either.

Can anyone explain this b/v situation? "Hace la lluvia" (the v is pronounced like a b in English) but "Esta lloviendo" (the v is pronounced like a v in English)

I've heard both expressions used and I understand they both mean "it's raining" (although the first is more literally translated as "it makes rain").

Que sepa yo se pronuncian igual. Y cuando les pregunté a mi esposa e hija, dijeron lo mismo.

Es "hace la lluvia" o "hace lluvia"? Hace sol, hace calor, hace frío, hace viento, etc..

De todos modos "esta lloviendo" es mucho mas común.

So, if they are pronounced the same...does that mean with the v in Spanish pronounced as a v or a b in English?

These kinds of questions emerge because I'm usually speaking with Spanish speakers who don't have a lot of education and do not tend to enunciate their words well. The same thing happens in English and is not meant as a put down to anyone...it's just an unfortunate observation.

I know who and what you are getting at but pendeja really doesn't fit the particular situation. Although she is stupid or "una pendeja" as you say, in this case I'd say:

Susan es una mierda.

You have a point, the pendejas might be offended being compared to susan.btw I think I saw her the other night when I drove by Parque Morelos.
