I survived Soria 2006-2007

Posted by Schnecke on September 25, 2007

I am moving once again (and unfortunately I’m afraid it won’t be the last time).

From September 17th I will be living closer to Asturias than Madrid.

It’s been two weeks since I was in Soria for the last time and I thought it would be nice to say goodbye to you all with this post… I’ll see you around!!

Best of the best for all of you!   ….. you know who….. MJ, S,— A, —M, F, E, L, M, G, E, JL, P, — N, S, MJ, F,— J, M, A, —M, L, MA … but especially to all those who didn’t expect to find something ‘like that’ in Soria…

Due to my being fully devoted to studying for my exams next June :-s  I might be a little absent from the blog (or else I will write about the boring stuff I’ll be reading every day for my exams) either way you may get bored and not come back again. So I leave here a few links that I enjoy reading when I have free time (I used to have some)…

“Did you not have time to watch the classics of all time?” This web is a riot, have a look at it and let me know if you liked it… (Thanks to Halón Disparado).

One of the best blogs (in Spanish…) and another one (also Spanish, sorry).

If you’d like to start a blog visit The Traffic Blog.

Some of my friends’ blogs, all of them in Spanish: Moker, Pearl Van and Morgan.

I hope to come back soon….Be good!!

Thanks for reading me…

Posted by Schnecke on September 10, 2007

(Sorry this is a fairly self-concerned post.)

I have been learning some things about blogs and WordPress. From Moker I learnt how to add a site-meter to my blog. The one he had did not work for WordPress so I had to find one that worked with my blog. Visiting other WordPress blogs, I found SiteMeter, very similar to the Blog Patrol (or at least, similar enough… it counted visits, haha).

Now that I have it installed I visit my SiteMeter every now and then and it is very interesting (and surprising!) to see that some people spend more than one hour visiting my blog… I don’t think there’s so much to see!!!

Well, there must be because it’s happened several times… I’m REALLY surprised and happy about that and now I only wish that one of those people who enjoy reading my blog leave a comment with their opinion (somebody apart from siblings and cousins -thanks Morgan, Moker and Intuition).

I repeat that eeeeeeeeeeeeeverybody is welcomed to leave their comment whichever it might be. And from yesterday on, you don’t have to wait for me to approve your comments.

People from Galicia, Extremadura, Andalucia, …I know there’s somebody out there reading me… don’t be shy… come out and comment……………. if you wish.

He had a dream

Posted by Schnecke on September 9, 2007

I have recently watched for the first time the whole ‘I have a dream’ speech delivered on the steps of Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. by Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963. I had, of course, read a lot about it, heard some parts once and again,… but I had never watched it complete. I want to share it with you, in case you have never seen it either, or if you have, you may enjoy watching it again.

It is a bit long. But I think it is worth it.

The first minutes warmed up the atmosphere, on minute 9 the speech starts to be inquestionably moving and starts to go for the climax with ‘Let us not wallow in the valley of dispair. And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream …’ going up and up to the end. This last part starts around minute 12.

Watch Video

See full transcription of the speech …

PS. By the way, for all of you who have ever commented on my blog and have seen that I have a quite awkward process of approving all comments, I let you know that I have finally changed that. From now on your comments will be automatically approved. So feel free to (responsibly) comment on any post you read!!

Minesweeper, the movie

Posted by Schnecke on August 29, 2007

Hi again,

As you see, I have not kept my first-day-promise and I have NOT written on the blog every day as recommended by a fellow blogger (see previous posts). I assume that writing on a blog everyday is tiring and many times you do not have anything interesting to share with ‘the family’. I have thus decided to commit myself to writing  on the blog once a week minimum and everytime I have something important to share – provided I have the time to write about it   🙂 !

One of my main interests and hobbies/passtimes is to look  at other blogs to see the thousands of possibilities that blogging may offer and also as a source of ‘interesting stuff’ for my own blog. Today I have been learning to install my site meter – to keep track of the visits to my blog- and I have found a couple of very interesting pages.

1. I highly recommend watching the trailer of the upcoming “Minesweeper- the movie”. I couldn’t stop laughing……. I have created a permalink in my blogroll to Colege Humor, where you can watch the video. Please, let me know if you liked it.

I have to credit El Espontáneo for finding the video………

2. I hear there is going to be a Blog Day August, 31st. I will write a new post especifically about this a.s.a.p.
