Oldtimers NYT:

Have any of you seen evidence of CmdteJuan on the internet boards?

He appeared to me to be a Union sympathiser in Colombia, and his posts stopped abrubtly.

While I am not a union sympathiser, he seemed articluate and smart, and I would hate to think something happened to him...

"You can tell a Basque even if he's hiding in plain sight.  The ears.  Basques have very long ears. We need to tell Martin to check the ears on those guys."

I've just checked my wife's ears, and you're wrong, Basque ears are not long. My wife, when younger, used to look a lot like Maribel Verdu, but then I also used to look like Gerard Depardieu, let's say that today we both are not as cinematic as we used to be.

Wow, Boca, I'm green with envy (as green as your kitchen after you repainted last year) at the thought of your wife, even with some age added.  No wonder you stay close to home.

The ears thing is only with the men, and that would be only for pure Basque.  And, as with anything else that is called a "trait" among ethnic groups, big ears doesn't hold true with every one of the group.  I have big ears myself and I'm Scots/Irish/German.  I think it's true that ears and noses keep growing as long as we live so I may end up the "Dumbo" of my family.

How's the food situation where you live?  With "locavore" becoming popular (due to high fuel prices,) some of us have changed the way we think about foods we put on the table.  What, where it came from, and environment costs to produce.  I've cut way back on red meat since corn is used to fatten it up and I'm having a tizzy fit about big-ag corn growers. Argentine grass-fed beef would be best but Martin says they send us only the oldest, junk cuts. Do you have a garden or go to a local farmer's market?  I never really think about Australia as having anything to eat except sheep.

Remember, while you're in China, don't breathe the air, drink the water, or stay in a building.  Rent a room from a local that has a house made of wood.  Or just roll up in a sleeping bag somewhere on that big square they've got.

Elport:

Whoa, I thought you had already been to China!

Anyway, we are all counting on you to convince them to go back Communist! Best of luck, there.

Depardieu? Really? The nose knows :^) Who would notice ears?

Cheers

As they say here: "you keep the bastards honest", or in other words, (wite) liers must be very consistent with you being around.

Martinbeck3: Yes, Gerard Depardieu, and La Verdu,why?....you don't believe me?....would you believe me then the other actor, whatshisname?...the one dancing with Jenifer Lopez in that movie....

http://www.megghy.com/immagini/cover_dvd/s/Shall_We_Dance-front.jpg

Yeah!...I would say Richard Gere and La Lopez represent much better our actual and present appearance, allthough I don't have any white shirt as we speak.

beso1: Ceristina is right, taxes must be paid, in the USA , in Australia or in Argentina.

NO, theres no iterference of Venezuela or Ecuador in Colombia, the only (continuous) influence is that of the USA in Latin America.

Don't worry el portenito 1, the whole frugging family will  try to relocate
to Sud America which is the only place they've groomed, at least his old man didn't try to alienate all of
"old" Europe at once, like sonny-boy's loud mouthed administration.

(Although if they'd known what he was up to at the time....)

Sonny found it ungraciously hot in the other S.A when he pleaded to have the price of petroleum reduced.  They just smiled. Recalling the guy who used to work with his Dad in Afghanistan who was so insistent that Americans be kept out of the Saudi Arabian peninsula.

Tell me, do you think Patagonia would be comfortable for the extended family when they are forced into exile? Would they march with the penguins?

BESO, I had read the Economist on The K Lady.

The K´s are going crazy as they sit alone surrounded by senators,governors and mayors that have been bought by them.

We are losing with these maniacs the last chance in history to go back to what we once were.

A 10% tax on grains added to the already existing 35% just a few days into the harvest is not what you could call fair plat (though I never expected a Peronista to be one).

BOCA, you´d be surprised but out of the four campo orgs. two are led by socialist leaders.The *autoconvocados*´leader,whcih would be a sort of ultra-democratic org. but is not an org! -my avatar Alfredo
D´angeli- voted super socialist Pino Solanas.
