Just a couple of years ago, I've seen parrots and parakeets roaming around, as well as starlings competing with our ...

Re: The End is Near

I remember the first time I tried to do serious work on a cell phone. I got myself a Palm Treo 680 in January 2007, and in a field visit to supervise Satellite Link setups in Costa Rica, instead of writing down on paper my notes or taking out the Laptop I brought with me, I typed most of the time in...

Re: Happy Turkey Day!

¿Eh? Hueyxolotl fest is in a month, in Christmas... ¿Are you refering to cooking the bird in our chocolatey sauce we call "mole" (from nahuatl "molli" = sauce)? That was two months ago, for Independence day, along with Nogada Chiles. Anyway happy Pilgrim settlement day to you.

¿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.
