Women's Revenge

'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.

s she fumbled for her wallet , I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.

'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked.

'No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.'

Patrick Swayze

I was on the road travelling to Baton Rouge today. I listened to NPR but missed the announcement of Patrick Swayze's death. I've just leaned about it a little while ago.

I remember so many movies in which he stared. One of the oldest is Red Dawn, where a group of teenagers fend off the Soviets (or something like that, I've not watched it in a while).

Of course Dirty Dancing was the movie that made him famous, just to outdo himself in Ghost.
I was pleasantly surprised to see him in Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. Oh, boy!!! Still hot.

These last couple of years were hard for him as he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and went through treatment. On his last TV series, The Beast, you could tell he was much thinner from undergoing chemo.

Un verdadero taco de ojo ( a real eye candy).

Here are som samples of his work:

As a singer:

As an actor:

Rest in peace.

Remembering 9-11

Today is the anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. A day that marked our lives. On my way to work this morning I was listening to NPR (just like every morning) when they aired a piece on a father talking about the two sons he lost that morning. He was calm and you could hear the love and longing. It gave me chills and it made me cry, it was moving. NPR has the audio clip on their website (here) if you would like to listen. A minute of silence for the firefighters, the officers, the first responders and the victims of the attack.
