Rodolfo Martínez Rodolfo Martínez's blog:

Los que me conocen saben de mi obsesión por los Beatles, que empezó allá en mi adolescencia, cuando el mundo y yo éramos más jóvenes, y que me ha acompañado todos estos años. No es algo continuo o constante, suele venirme por rachas, aparece y desaparece como un guadiana cualquiera, pero en reali...

I completed the SIA course on CCTV. Now I have to wait to see if I passed the tests. I do know I sailed through the practical side which meant that I didn't have to go in on Friday to redo it. Yes all the test were completed on Thursday which I was glad as it gave me yesterday to relax after the... Read more of this blog post »

No, I'm talking about full on bashing before a thin... Read more of this blog post »

Some of my favorite new submissions this week.



Monica asked her baker to add "May the Force be with you" to her son's birthday cake - but added, "If it doesn't fit, don't worry about it."
