You would have made a great teacher.  Were you ever a teacher?

Not in the strict (school) sense of the word, but, yes I have a nack for it and ppl tell  me I am good, so I tried myself several times at instructing: Through flight instructor, then Staff Comms Instructor for Disaster Response Staff Comms Centrals after the army, then later did my photographic workshops for apprentecises from other befriended companies, one example here: http://eventfoto.com/photos/workshop_dec_2003/index.html

I think I would have made a good teacher, but only for stuff I myself am interested in... Smiley

well, the fellow is our president... Smiley; and, IIRC, since yesterday also the European President... (part time/shared, they got a change in the system here implemented after the Lisbon treaty was accepted a few weeks ago).

yep, first shared presidency, with that new Belgian guy, Heman Von Rompuy, Prez of the Comission (which, within the Lisbon treaty means *permanent* Prez of the EU, aka "Prime Minister"):

Organized crime is no longer as organized as it used to be, no doubt about it. 

Hundreds of mourners gathered at Notre Dame de la Defense church in Little Italy, Montreal, Saturday to pay their final respects to Nick Rizzuto Jr. Son of reputed mafia kingpin Vito Rizzuto, who was gunned down in broad daylight on Monday in N.D.G., near the offices of FTM Construction.

Vito Rizzuto is still in prison and his father Nicolo Rizzuto Sr. is out on parole, and was able to attend the funeral of his grandson. 

It is said that Nick Rozzuto was a good family man,  never harassed anyone, so why was he shot down?  Another revenge killing?

Interested, yes, but I do not know anything about it, maybe if you wrote up a little article to give the perspective and the background (history, mafia section, etc.)? The link you posted does not provide that, so it is hard to comment from the outside.

Here's some info. about it on wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vito_Rizzuto

Some years back I lived in Montreal,  in an area called St.  Leonard,  which is an area which is highly populated by Italians.  Some people who lived there told me that the those with the Lamborghini's parked outside of their houses, probably had Mafia connections.  I had no way proving or disproving this, but it was an interesting connection.

Well, Solideo knows I disagree... Smiley

Spain is in trouble, and I also credit this to a part to the current government and governor (I was there: "No nos falles!!" (= "Dont fail us!"), and he did in parts - and in the important ones for that, though I have to give him credit in many a ways in the social department, Spain leaped a century ahead in this respect...!), but we are no way going Greece:

Too much impulse here from the single person side, people that do want to work, people that understand that taxes are a needed evil and cope grudignly (when even our politicians in charge of tax recurses claim in front of the judge that they avoided paying taxes doing all in black: Mr. Matas!!!), people that are ready to give thier best at 30 degrees centigrad at plain sun on a construction site, all very different from the Greek set up (where, according to my experience, nobody really *wants* to work..., no offense intnded, just my experience).

Spain is strong, because it has strong people that are accustomed to get along with whatever life throws at them, and seeing the layout from the outside I have no doubt whatsoever they will make their way, as always...

Wishful thinking? Maybe, but based on experience (let us see Barca-Inter on Wednesday, then we will know where the nation goes: Soccer, for some yet unexplored reason, always shows where a nation stands - though my statistics show it is the selection that creates the picture).

My idea (soccer and politics wise in Spain) stems from seeing the goal fall in a Madrid-Dortmund Champions Leauge match a few 10 years ago (semi.finals APR 1 (!!) ´98): I was in Germany that day, sharing the event with some friends that also were Espanophiles, and I kept telling them : "Wait, it will turn out perfect". And it did:

After many attempts to raise the original goal structure (with poles in the ground, frantically woeking guys trying to make it stand up again, of cause to no use: Madrid Football Club did not have a reserve goal) some poor lorry drivers on the motorway 50 km away heard of the problem on te radio, went to another soccer field and simply "robbed" the goal from it and carried it with their lorry to Bernabeu Stadium (they made the headlines of all news papers the next day as heroes, and rightly so from my POV Smiley).

Turned out the goal that was finally raised (76 minutes later) was 3 cm lower than the original, Dortmund filed a complaint but (luckily so for my german soul) withdrew it afterwards, as both tems played the same setup for 45 minutes each (interstingly I cannot find a vid in Spanish, only German vids - and a lot, you can see the chaos and the solution, *typically* and unrepeatably Spain here):

This vid is a representation for the (German) national TV award the two German moderators won for their covering of the event, inventing stuff to keep audience... It was April 1st, in the end 14 millio spectators follwed the setup of the new goal (in Germany)... When the ball finally started rolling audience dropped to 800.000... (and nobody, incl. yours truly, remebers the result of this seni final match... Smiley )

See Spain at its best:

Der Torbruch


My mystic take on things in Spain and on my life, seriously.

Solideo, dont fear for Spain, there will always be a lorry driver fixing things when shit hits the fan!

A question of Solideo or Rattler:  How much would you expect to pay for  a house in Spain.

----   a 3 or 4 bed room a fixer upper?

----  a 3 or 4 bedroom that is in reasonable condition?

----  does it depend on the location?  Which areas are cheaper and which are more expensive?
