What's Happening

I know it is becoming like a broken record, but great weather again this past weekend. Though I hear there is a storm (tropical/hurricane?) threatening. Should know more in the next 24-hours about how it will affect us.

Strolled around the Zona Colonial this past Sunday, and I'm glad I did. The photos around the Parque de Independencia have been changed. They feature people who work in the Dominican Fashion establishment. There were many photos I recognize. Then, at the park in front of the Church on el Conde, there is a church bazaar, with many artists out selling their wares. I picked up a few things, especially some home-made soap that is just to die for. There was even a 14-year old from La Casa Rosada, who was selling her hand-made jewelry designs.

Great Sunday.

Poor Sammy Sosa. He just can't catch a break. He is being vilified for the perceived (according to the Dominican blogs) slight of inviting very few people-of-color. Then, on top of that he had the nerve to have foreign chefs. What's a multi-millionaire to do?

Our little blog has been featured on the Men of Color blog. Click here to check out the kind words.

Why the criticism of Sammy Sosa in the DR? Where does it say that a white man who gives a party in his house has to invite people of color? Sammy Sosa is white, isn't he? Well, he looks white to me in his picture on this blog..........

He is not white...it is his makeup...he needs a different foundation

I just fell off my chair laughing. This post is hilarious!

Seriously, I think the problem is not with his makeup (do you honestly think he wears that much?) but with the white balance in the digitized photograph.
