Re: Notes To Self

As far as I've seen, at the caravan that entered nearly a month ago, a delegation of National Immigration Institute went to the Ciudad Hidalgo - Tecun Uman border bridge to offer asylum to those that would want to apply... As fa as the media has been saying, less than 10% of the migrants have so far...

Re: spring?

¿Remember I was complaining two months ago that we were hovering the 0 in the Celsius scale? About a month ago the weather switched to daily minimums of 15 and maximums of 25, also Celsius... We have been in our version of spring for a month already.

Re: I'm Just Going to Leave This Here

I didn't take much attention to that. I just marvel when the bushes in the neighborhood sidewalks begin to get full and the bracts naturally turn red since late october, and then the true flower blossoms in December... By now some of the bushes have lost the red bracts and the blossoms are dithering...

He also set, under the Monroe Doctrine, the first purchase intention for the then Northern States, preceding 22 years the U.S. - Mexico war.

Well, At least 45th has achieved something. We have been downtalked about since Poinsett, and the world took that lead. It hasn't been since the start of his campaign.

Re: Christmas Messages

Oh, well. Happy Panqutzaliztli to all of you...

Down here at the old Anahuac there was also a winter solstice festivity before the arrival of the Europeans and it was adapted by friars in order to evangelize the population.

Re: Celebremos

I didn't know that "Celebration" version... Not that it is wrong, just a bit weird, with those lyrics and the english speaking accent... About "Volare", I remember most the original version by Domenico Modugno, but the Dean Martin version is also very good... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DTo5aVL...
