"Do We Have Any Spanish Speakers With Us Today? Well Buenos Dias!"

I'm trying to find Internet resources for learning Spanish for free. So far I found some free mp3 files from UC Davis that are designed to help Anglo farm managers speak to their employees, so the vocabulary is heavy on farm words and is all spoken by a Chilean. I've also found a thing called "Coffee Break Spanish" which podcasts episodes of a Scotsman speaking Spanish-from-Spain Spanish. I'm going to have so many accents I'll be Eurotrash!

Maybe if either of these things turns out to be any good, I'll let you know more about them.

Title from "Pee Wee's Big Adventure."

Hey - I just read this article.,2933,434043,00.html

THe guy who's girlfriend was stuck to the toilet for 2 years just won the lottery.

Something fishy is going on here. Don't you think? The chances that your girlfriend would be stuck to a toilet for 2 years AND you would win the lottery - that is just crazy.
