Economics 101

I ran across this clip that explains the basics of the financial and mortgage mess in simple, easy to understand language.  Economics 101, I call it.  

Este video da una lección de economía de una manera fácil de entender, nada rebuscado.  Está en inglés pero tiene subtítulos.

Christmas Lights

These are the best, coolest Christmas Lights I've seen.  
Thanks to the hard work of the Hodo Family in Van Buren, Ark.
You drive there, turn off your car lights, tune your radio to a neighborhood radio station and watch.

Merry Christmas / Feliz Navidad

‘Twas the night before Christmas y por toda la casa,
Not a creature was stirring. ¡Caramba! ¿Qué pasa?

Los niños were tucked away in their camas,
Some in long underwear, some in pijamas,

While hanging the medias with mucho ciudado
In hopes that old Santa would feel obligado

To bring all children, both buenos y malos,
A nice batch of dulces y otros regalos.

Outside in the yard there arose such a grito
That I jumped to my pies like a frightened cabrito.

I ran to the window and looked out afuera,
And who in the world do you think that it era?

Saint Nick in a sleigh and a big red sombrero
Came dashing along like a crazy bombero.

And pulling his sleigh instead of venados
Were eight little burros approaching volados.

I watched as they came and this quaint little hombre
Was shouting and whistling and calling by nombre:

"¡Ay Pancho, ay Pepe, ay Cuco, ay Berto,
Ay Chato, ay Chopo, Macuco, y Nieto!"'

Then standing erect with his hands on his pecho
He flew to the top of our very own techo.

With his round little belly like a bowl of jalea,
He struggled to squeeze down our old chiminea,

Then huffing and puffing at last in our sala,
With soot smeared all over his real suit de gala,

He filled all the medias with lovely regalos-
For none of the niños had been very malos.

Then chuckling aloud, seeming muy contento,
He turned like a flash and was gone como viento.

And I heard him exclaim, and this is verdad,
Merry Christmas to all, y Feliz Navidad!

Wishing you the best this holiday season.
Que esta noche es Nochebuena y mañana Navidad.
