Marevas (2/5)

  1. Tapas at Ciutat Comtal Rambla de Catalunya, 18, 08007 Barcelona, Spain (La Dreta de l'Eixample) +34 933 18 19 97
  2. I can't do it anymore either...., but what I can do is make great excuses. I'm too bored around home, but fly me to some far off city like London, Barcelona or Rome and I can walk 7 or 8 miles a day easy. Of course I'm stopping for coffee, cigars and various snacks, but I'm exercising. That's my excuse!
  3. What song or hymn that moves you spiritually or emotionally when you hear it. The one that makes you stop and think for a moment, and possibly brings a lump to your throat or a tear to your eye? Mine:
  4. I'll believe in EV's as soon as the first electric passenger jumbo jet takes off.
  5. New Balance* are pretty good and available in widths. They also have removable arch supports for those of you who might wear prescription arch supports. Just remember the money you save today might be spent with pain and suffering of new knees or hips after the joint degrades from wear and tear (Arthritis / Degenerative Joint Disease). Of course this won't happen to everybody. When in doubt, consult your physician. Throw out anything over 6 - 8 months old.....the support is shot (even if they look new) provided you have been wearing them with regularity. I can't tell you how many patients/Sr. Citizens tell me they DON'T have arthritis. I tell them sure.....and that car you bought 10 years ago still has perfect tread on the tires with absolutely no wear and tear after more than 50,000 miles. ? *I have no investment or shares of New Balance.
  6. I agree with rckymtn22 above. That sure looks like Red Cedar to me......the kind used in moth closets!
  7. Unfortunately, I am unable to site the original author/source for this email received a while back..... Ribeye? Homographs are words of like spelling but with more than one meaning. A homograph that is also pronounced differently is a heteronym. You think English is easy?? I think a retired English teacher was bored...THIS IS GREAT! Read all the way to the end................. This took a lot of work to put together! 1) The bandage was wound around the wound. 2) The farm was used to produce produce. 3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse. 4) We must polish the Polish furniture.. 5) He could lead if he would get the lead out. 6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.. 7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present. ? A bass was painted on the head of the bassdrum. 9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes. 10) I did not object to the object. 11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid. 12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row. 13) They were too close to the door to close it. 14) The buck does funny things when the does are present. 15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line. 16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow. 17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail. 18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.. 19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests. 20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend? Let's face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France . Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. PS. - Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick'? You lovers of the English language might enjoy this. There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is 'UP.' It's easy to understand UP , meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP ? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP ? Why do we speak UP and why are the officersUP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UPthe silver; we warm UP the leftovers and cleanUP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, workUP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special . A drain must be opened UP because it is stoppedUP . We open UP a store in the morning but we close itUP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP ! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP , you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP . When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP . When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP . One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP , for now my time is UP , so.......it is time to shut UP ! Now it's UP to you what you do with this email
  8. This was said to an employee when one only wants to speak with the boss. "I don't want to talk to the monkey, I want to talk to the organ grinder"
  9. And now, the airing of grievances...... 1. I wish Habanos would concentrate on quality control before deciding to introduce new lines.
  10. Some criticize those artists who don't let their political views be known....... I believe they are the smart ones, casting the widest net for their fans appreciation. Why come out on a particular side and alienate half of your audience.
