Does anyone watch telenovelas?

I started with the original El Clon (which I've watched in its entirety twice), then its remake. I've binge-watched many on Netflix, like Lo Que la Vida me Robo, Teresa, Velvet, etc. I try to avoid the drugs-and-crime ones but they dominate the genre.

I don't watch because they're great literature brought to the screen, I watch for the wide variety of conversational Spanish. I just finished watching Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas (based on a real person) and I was very glad for sub-titles because the slang and dialects were hard to follow.

Great post my granddaughter quoted on FB.

Go ahead and whip your titty out to feed your baby. Where I'm from, they pull titties out for beads.

(Yes, I'm from Louisiana)

I just saw the fake Indian vs real Indian bus.

I went to a dr appt in the building behind the bus in the photo, on Concord Ave. here in Cambridge. I'd seen that bus before, parked there, when it had a different message on it (can't remember what). We do get some loonies running for office...like the one who stole the Presidency...


I AM The Avenger! (No spoilers)

During the movie, I threw a wadded-up piece of napkin 20 feet below me, in the dark, and hit a distractingly bright cell phone. The guy looked around and turned off his phone. I guess I felt emboldened by all the action on the screen. It was a lucky shot for an old woman.

OMG! Her emails!

I just checked and thatís the subject of Foxís top online story. Yep, we really need to protect the country from those emails. Somebody could get a hangnail.

So. You prayed, and she died anyway.

Today my extended Southern Baptist family mourns the death of a 76-year-old cousin I may have met once but donít remember. For a month, the prayer chains have rattled across my Facebook feed faster than I could delete and hide. God can work a miracle! God heeds prayer! Iím praying! Weíre all praying! Prayers going up! Prayers! Prayers!

And, she died. Because God wanted to bring her home. God saw that sheíd suffered enough. She is reunited with her loved ones. She is happy at the right hand of the Lord.

But if she had recovered, it would have been proof that prayer works.

How did so many people become such idiots?

A year later, still so powerful. I Cant Keep Quiet.

Hello from the runway at the Atlanta airport.

Major power outage, no planes going in or out. Good thing I have a power outlet at my seat, and some food, and a nice seatmate. This is going to take a while. I donít think Iíve ever spent the right on a runway.

Trump Won Fair and Square!

This was on a huge sign held by a middle-aged white man today at the side of Route 2 west out of Boston. My best guess is that a nearby mental health facility is missing an inmate.

Anyone else here seeing Hillary in Boston on Tuesday?

I can't wait. Ticket includes a copy of her book, which I already have, so I'll give it to a friend.
