    Sending Package from US to BsAs

    Also, if you send things through regular mail, they tend to go missing. My parents have sent a number of children's DVD's to my niece and nephew but they would never make it. They've subsequently quit sending them. Fed-ex would probably be the safest way to go. I received a package when I...

    From the US: Argentina Gift Certificates

    It's been a couple of years since I've been there. I was surprised to see my login still works. I like the new design of the website. Anyway. My sister lives there and I have a niece and nephew there also. I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to buy a gift certicate(s) from a mall or...

    How much does protest or riot in BA affect your daily life?

    I think it (riot) was kind of blown out of proportion on the news here in the U.S. I called my sister in BA and she said it wasn't that bad. Of course, she doesn't like us worrying here.

    Favourite cities/Places to live

    The Military bases and conservatism in the panhandle is what makes it a better place to live. I like Orlando better than Miami but generally don't care to go to Florida at all.

    Favourite cities/Places to live

    I was there right after the recent conflict with Lebanon this year. But people there just go about their business and don't let it bother them. It was kind of tense in the Temple Mount area and in East Jerusalem and Bethlehem. But in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem proper it was completely relaxed. I...

    Favourite cities/Places to live

    Yes, Utah is a predominantly Mormon state, though, there are plenty there who are not Mormons. There are some great ski areas there. You're probably thinking of Park City. The people in Israel I found to be very welcoming and the relaxed atmosphere really made me feel at home. El Al Airlines...

    Getting Married in Argentina....

    My sister married an Argentinian a few years ago. They got married in a civil court ceremony which took about fifteen minutes and only seated about 30 people. But they had two large receptions in rented facilities downtown the following two days. I don't know the technicalities of getting...

    Re: Democrats Abroad! Join up!

    I realize you were not disparaging rednecks. And I had not heard of the "Redneck Manifesto," but just a read a review. It sounds like the author hits a lot of good points. This one especially that was mentioned in the review, "he shows how 'white cash' has always pitted 'white trash' against...

    Re: Democrats Abroad! Join up!

    I really don't want to get into an extended debate. Rice has a lot of credentials in many different areas (NSAdvisor '01-'04, six years Stanford U. provost overseeing a 1.5 bil budget from '99, professor of political science at Stanford from '81 receiving awards for Excellence in Teaching and...

    Re: Democrats Abroad! Join up!

    I think Dr. Rice would make a good president. But you're right that she's not running and probably wouldn't get elected if she did. But the race disparity between the parties has more to do with political ideology than "old prejudices." There are plenty of old prejudices in the Democrat party...

    Re: Democrats Abroad! Join up!

    Hmm. Could I call someone sexist for suggesting a "Defeat Condi" club if she was a contender in the Presidential election?

    Casino Royale?

    I don't think it's playing here yet in BsAs.

    On the Rep. side, Condileeza Rice. On the Dem. side, I don't know, maybe Howard Dean's wife.

    I'd be in for joining a "Defeat Hillary" club.

    land of the selfish - Part 2

    One thing I really like here is the fact that the rap and hip-hop culture really hasn't caught on. This is one thing I'm dreading when I go back to the States. I don't see kids here walking down the street with their pants down and underwear hanging out. And there's not a lot of a bling...

    Coffee shops with Power

    The Cinema Callao (Sante Fe 1798) has wi-fi and there is an electric plug on the second floor near the stage area by the music equipment. Further out on Sante Fe, at Aguero, there is an Aroma that has three booths with plug-ins and a strip of plugs by the trash can near the stairs. (Sorry, both...

    Is there a place to watch the election returns tonight?

    It will probably be more like tomorrow morning, if there was such a place. Several of the news sites will have streaming coverage.
