I hope to get to know him in person some day.

Youโ€™re very welcome Nico

Please, drop me a message if you come by. We will arrange a mini Mexico GTG! You will taste some representative dishes (including delicious tacos) and I can probably recommend you some places to visit.



You are tempting me a lot. I love Mexico. Went to Playa Del Carmen, Cozumel and Tulum and it was like Heaven. [nt]

I had my honeymoon in playa del Cรกrmen

 By: renerod : July 17th, 2019-21:34
Life is so relaxing there! You can slow down and enjoy life! And you have watch boutiques also with duty free prices and vintage watch sellers also smile

I want to take Bruno to Cozumel to start learning snorkeling and latter scuba diving.



I didn't see that much watch boutiques... But it was in 2004. [nt]

Is Europe in France?

 By: NickO : July 15th, 2019-08:07
If you ask most American high school kids the answer would be a resounding YES!

According to my geographically-challenged countrymen, Europe comprises three main regions: Lon-DIN, Pear-RIS and It-LEE.

Yep, itโ€™s like that. God bless the English, the French and the Italians. I apologize in advance for 98% of American tourists who descend on your country. We know not what we do. Weโ€™re an ignorant mass of baseball caps, t- shirts, cargo pants, sneakers and fanny packs. 

Sorry for the rant, but I just left the beautiful city of Milano this morning and was embarrassed multiple times by the conduct and ignorance of my countrymen. Itโ€™s something we really need to work on.


Oh and yeah, Nico, good job on 200K my friend! ๐Ÿ˜€

A snippet . . .

 By: Dr No : July 15th, 2019-08:54
. . . from grade school:

Teacher to class: Is there a Fourth of July in France?

Young Dr No: Umm, the French celebrate Bastille Day, don't they?

Teacher: Well, what day do you suppose is on their calendar between July third and fifth?


A valuable lesson in listening that left its mark on young Dr No.

Years later, an especially dim co-worker was irritating our boss to no end. 

The pithy jewel from grade school suddenly came to mind.

"Hey, Maria - is there a Fourth of July in France?", smirked I.

Sensing a trick question, she slowly drawled, "Umm . . . yes, there is."

I was astonished.  Boss was, too.

"Good going, Maria!", our boss exclaimed.  "How did you know the right answer?"


"Ummm . . . doesn't the whole world celebrate the Fourth of July?"

smile  smile

Art, that punchline made me LOL!!

Itโ€™s just a little better in the U.K. I remember in 2nd year geography (12 years old) some wag took the world map and drew a to-scale Portugal on about 8 different West coasts. We then all got to play โ€œlocate the real Portugalโ€ and, um, we didnโ€™t bat 1.000 ๐Ÿ˜€


You knew . . .

 By: Dr No : July 15th, 2019-09:30
. . . this was coming.


ROFL! Too good, but it is the same everywhere in the world. Google is the only culture more and more young people know... [nt]

I remember once an american family who went in Croatia. It was a shock for them, while it is a paradise for us. But let's not generalize. I know many others who know and / or appreciate

Thank you so much for your kind words, Big Moustache.

I think he has rigged our counter

 By: cazalea : July 15th, 2019-08:17
so that his millions of posts won't itimidate anyone.
That's my opinion and I'm sticking with it.


LOL! Thanks, Mike. [nt]
