AND SOLEMNITY OF MARY THE MOTHER OF GOD!
AND WORLD PEACE DAY!
GUEST BLOGI would like to take this opportunity to personally thank His Holiness, Pope Benedict for guest blogging for today's post. Here is his message for World Peace Day
And for a little bit of silliness - I came across this video the other day. It is of a record that my sister had when I was but a wee little one. One day I dropped her record on the floor and a large chunk came out of it. It is a silly song (we had it in English) and nobody we sang it to ever believed that it existed. A couple of years ago I found the record at an antique shop and righted the great wrong I had done as a child. Here is a video in Spanish (you really can find anything on the Internet) for your holiday - holy day - listening pleasure. Make sure that you sound is turned WAY up.
In a little quiet town, just South of the Mexican border
There lived a lovely Juanita, a banana grower's daughter
She longed to sing at the opera but her father laughed and made fun
Still Juanita would sing each day in the fields as soon as her work was done
Juanita moved to the city in search of fortune and fame
It didn't take more than a couple of songs,
she had won the world's acclaim
Her father back home was astounded, his Juanita Banana a star?
He burned down the trees,
he moved to the city and he bought himself a guitar!
