Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 13

I was too tired Tuesday night to put something together, so I decided to double-up yesterday. Unfortunately, I spent a good portion of the morning doing some bug hunting inside my computer, but not before I had put together the 4/13 piece. However, Firefox decided to play the slow as molasses game with me, and … Read moreCreate Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 13

Today, while enjoying the outdoors for a bit (read: doing yard work), the word “cucubano” came to mind, and with it a song (of the same name) popularized by Tony Croatto (and, if I’m not mistaken, covered by Menudo as well).

Some thoughts on the CSED: There was a locally produced tv show in PR in the mid-late 80s called Sunshine’s Cafe. It was a sketch comedy show that satirized and lampooned society-at-large during that time.

Still making an attempt to get caught up. I could go the easy route and write off the missed days and “reset” the counter, so to speak. Like C-3PO’s thinking in Star Wars: Well, I’m not going that way. It’s much too rocky. This way is much easier Well, I’m not going that way. I’m … Read moreCreate Something Every Day (#daily365)– For March 10
