Warning:  Some Salsa, or a lot of Salsa and others of the general genre contain/s sensual themes, lyrics, references, innuendo and double-entendres.  If all of that doesn't scare you off and if you speak Spanish then click.  Otherwise, make your own choice.  The rest of you can't understand what is being sung anyway so that it doesn't matter if you click or not.
Best definition of Salsa I've ever heard:
"Salsa is Cuban music with a New York attitude." - Bobby Sanabria
For those of you who prefer a "Jukebox" format, here it is:  Today's/Tonight's "Jukebox"

Individual Songs for today/tonight:

Johnny Conga - Conga Nation

Johnny Conga - Conga Robics

"Naborí" is a relatively new band.  This is their first CD.  However, their music is good ol' Salsa that is referred to as "Hard Salsa" or "Power Salsa" from the old days of Salsa as opposed to "Romantic Salsa" that was predominant in the 80s and 90s:

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list

December 12, 2009
Sowing Seed With Tears
I have great sorrow and continual grief in my heart. —Romans 9:2

In our Bible-study class, we were reading Ephesians 4:17-24 out loud when Alyssa began to cry. Most of us were wondering why, when she quietly said, “I’m crying because hearing this passage read out loud makes me see the condition that lost people are in. They’re separated from God and are blind to it! That breaks my heart.”

One person in the class admitted later that he was embarrassed he had never felt that sad about nonbelievers and had in the past even talked excitedly about the judgment they would receive one day from God.

The apostle Paul laid out the condition of the lost with these words: “[They have] their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God . . . because of the blindness of their heart” (Eph. 4:18). He testified that he had “great sorrow and continual grief in [his] heart” because his fellow countrymen had not yet come to know the love of Christ (Rom. 9:1-3).

As we think about the condition of nonbelievers, we can remember God’s heart toward them: “The Lord is . . . longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). When we share the Word of God and pray earnestly for others, eyes will be opened to His love.

Oh, give me, Lord, Thy love for souls,
For lost and wandering sheep,
That I may see the multitudes
And weep as Thou didst weep. —Harrison

Open your heart to the Lord, and He will open your eyes to the lost.


Bible in One Year: Hosea 9-11; Revelation 3

Thanks very much for tonite's Pledge, Hope! The words "under God" are in there, at least in part, due to the work of the Knights of Columbus, of which I am a member. As you probably know, there is an effort now to remove those words from the Pledge due to the so-called separation of church and state. If that benighted effort succeeds, the words "under God" will nonetheless remain in my Pledge, sounded loudly and clearly. Let us hope that the efforts to remove them will fall to the ignominious failure they deserve!

Greetings to all the Freepers out there this Friday Evening, back after a short hiatus it's time for the Friday Flyby. Tonight pics are "Head On" pictures so we will get right to business and on with the pictures.

The first two pics are form Glenn Alderton down Oz way. Pic #1 is of an Australian Wirraway The Wirraway served the Aussies in WW-II as an Advance trainer and as a scout bomber! It was built in OX and was based on the North American Aviation NA-16 which was the first trainer NAA built and was the start of a long line of NAA Trainers.

Sticking with the Aussies for the moment we have a Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation Boomerang. Early in 1942 the Australians figured out that they were on there own for a while and so the Boomerang fighter was born in only 3 months. Working with what they knew the Aussies rebuilt the Wirraway into the Boomerang fighter. While not a match for the Zero, the Boomerang had respectable performance given the few tools that the Australians had to work with and served until almost the end of WW-II mainly in a secondary role and as an advance trainer.

An appropriate picture fro many of us a Martin B-26 Marauder on a snowy tactical airfield in France during the winter of 44/45.

A lift of the alfa6 lid to Dave Stewart at xtreme-action-images.com (Dave Stewart)for this great shot of the B-17 Flying Fortress.

'ow about up close and personal with a Grumman F4F Wildcat. eh?

And we close out tonight's Friday Flyby with this great Glenn Alderton shot of a Vought F4U Corsair.

Have a great weekend y'all and take care. With a bit of luck we should be back tomorrow with the Saturday Sortie.

Regards

Hey Conor,
Is that “Old Ironsides” you’ve posted there? When we were kids in the 50s Mom and Dad took us there. My sister picked up a cannonball and promptly dropped it on her foot and split her big toe wide open for a big emergency mess and I’m told that the cannonballs have been welded together ever since.

The thread is all black with beautiful plaid lettering, and Mac’s first post is ALL white...everything.

Headed home shortly. The entire system and all its equipment is moving to new digs. It goes down in about 15 minutes and won’t be up til Monday morning. We’ve been warned for problems. *sigh*

Well, I can’t say for certain that she caused it but it sure seemed like a major calamity at the time. Our family sure never forgot it. My Dad was a Coast Guard officer and he may have had something to say about his “Little Buttercup” (as he called my sister) having this bloody mishap. I don’t blame him for being upset. She was the only one of all 7 of us kids who never gave him a bit of trouble. LOL.

HOLIDAY EATING TIPS

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Holiday spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. It's rare.. You cannot find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an eggnog-alcoholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.

5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Holiday party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots of it. Hello?

6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do.. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again.

8. Same for pies. Apple, Pumpkin, Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor Day?

9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have some standards.

10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention. Re-read tips; start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner. Remember this motto to live by:

“Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate and wine in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO HOO what a ride!”

Have a Merry Christmas & a great holiday season!!

I suspect he may have become quite animated after an event like that.
