...y, por su puesto, los stagiaires siempre son muy cansados cuando sus turnos han terminado.

...And, of course, stagiaires are always very tired when they have finished their shifts.

If you attended more frequently you would know that we are going bilingual on Tuesdays this year.

And I guess because I normally do not bother with grades, but your submission was outstanding.

Dang blasted crown snapped in half last night and fell out at Bible study. On my way to dentist soon. All I can say is this is better than sinus problems. Oh, and it snowed again last night, just enough to have to clean off the car yet again.

That crown is not just a dental fixture, it’s like a jobs program.

well i would take off for using SER instead of ESTAR to show a temporary condition and not a permanent trait... ; )

Dave, as it happens, I work pretty intensively fr/roughly 6am-10am, so can only occasionally drop in.

Hey, I'm all for bilingual efforts: I live in Panama and am (pretty seriously) trying to learn Spanish. Neat idea.

Like I said, xs, 'trying' to learn Spanish. Tell me, please, re 'ser' vs 'estar' why 'estar' is used in non-temporary situations such as

La iglesia esta al lado de rio.

They presumably don't move the church every so often, do they??

I am not sure there’s a logical explanation in every case for those things, you just end up having to know when to use it in certain instances. You could avoid it by saying La iglesia queda al lado del rio. My spanish is rusty. I took it from 7th grade all through HS and majored in it in college. Also did two stints in Colombia, SA, in college, doing a research project and living with a family. These days my only use of spanish is talking to my cleaning lady and my lawn guys. Embarrassing!

Morning to you. Enjoying our weather? -7 this morning here.

One nice thing, the tap water is nice and cold. I think if I put it in the refrigerator it will get warmer. ;-)

I did have a review of grammar when my two older kids had it in HS and then my daughter also had it in college for 2 years, so i would check their work for them. If you are living in a spanish speaking country, you will be learning by osmosis, which is easier then textbook study! the best way to learn a language is by necessity, being forced to communicate in daily life. I have a good friend from Venezuela, but bc she speaks english it's easier to just speak eng with her. The lawn guys and the cleaning lady are less facile in english, which is why i am forced to speak Spanish with them. Plus, they really like it that i can speak to them in their language. I pulled up with some Don Omar music blaring from my vehicle last summer, and those guys laughed and laughed! LOVE that song!

Do they need to show us that the snow plows are out plowing and salting? That is not news.

If, for some reason, they were NOT out there, that would be news.

This is our favorite Spanish song while driving to school. You cannot avoid car dancing and gestures while this is playing.

The dew point is useful for defining the “stickiness” factor in the summer. Just about pointless this time of year.

We were roaring about this yesterday. xsteen has been to Mari Vanna and thinks it's incrediby cool. Notice they have polish pottery on the table. The decor is supposed to be like your Baba's house. But look at how spiffed up Maria is, and Ovie looks like utter crap, including hair not combed. AND he bought her cheap roses from the Safeway! Paula's reponse was we need to make sure to get reservations at Mari Vanna next Jan. 25th!

Doesn’t everybody in the north just turn on the “hot” spigot to wash their hands everywhere they go? And hope there is eventually something non-cold that comes out?

Which makes the fact that he got out of his car, went in and got them, more important.

He could have called FTD.

He didn’t......

There’s a difference between thoughtful, and pretentious,

Must have missed the ping today!

First thing that comes to mind, though, is something about male horse flatulence...

Sort of like the Wisconsin motto - “Come to Wisconsin and smell our Dairy Air!”
