Happy Bday to my Favorite!

Today I would like to make a little tribute to the most important person in my life. My favortie, my love and my wife. She is so amazing and I am very...I repeat VERY lucky to have such a wonderful wife. I can truly say the best day of my life was the day I stood on my knees in the middle of that ice skating rink and she said "yes." Why she did, or how is happened still baffles me to this day and I am grateful every moment that it happened. I am the luckiest!

Happy Birthday Baby!

Chilean Independence Day

I would just like to write a small tribute to Chile and its day of independence. Today is the day Chilean's gained their freedom from Spain. The streets are full of celebrations and the people are eating Empanadas like there is no tomorrow. There is a flag in every window and a broom on every porch. Elderly are dancing the Cueca (waving many a handkerchief) on every street corner. Wait, is that the circus coming around the corner? No! It's the Chilean National Anthem blasting from windows near and far! I hope this provided everyone with a small taste of what its like in Chile this time of year. Thanks for sharing this special day with me!

I found a pretty good youtube video for anyone who wants to know what the Cueca Dance looks on the title
