For the (maybe) 2 people who regularly follow this blog, I am happy to report that I am now officially engaged to marry Maria Luisa Fallas.
I had planned this thing for weeks… ML and I would stand up at our joint birthday party and welcome the guests. She would speak first… then I would welcome them as well.
The unscheduled part was where I would say something really romantic about how mu

Hotel Room Shortage
During the past high tourist season – running December through April – some 39,000 tourists were not able to secure a hotel room in Costa Rica, that according to the National Chamber of Tourism
This is one of the consequences of an unexpected increase in the arrival of visitors, which had been expected to grow by 6.6% between 2002 and 2012, but just between 2002 and 2004 it went up8.
Up at 4 AM. Sleep is impossible as tomorrow nears.
I like to get up early anyway… often before 5 AM. The house is quiet and the then the birds come! I am not a birder. I do like to browse a bird book once in a while, but I am not a expert. However, one of my favorite things in Costa Rica is to listen to the birds just before daylight.

The perfect example was this AM when my sweetie flew off to work sans a ‘Happy Birthday”.
Of course 5 minutes after I hit publish, she called… wished me an effusive HB, and invited me to dinner and other “activites”.
As Bugs Bunny used to say… “Whatta Maroon!”
I am SOOO impressed with WP! Damn this just beats MT to death!
I have played around now… found this theme which I had to mod a bit and change the CSS… added other links so you can all tell how excellent the weather is here in Costa Rica, added a couple of plug-ins (one of which is that slippery thing which is just way too cool!).

Today is my birthday!
I actually forgot it until an ex-lover called to wish me a happy.
If anyone actually reads this blog, you have seen mention of my darling Maria whose has been my novia (girlfriend) for about 14 months. After the ex called, I realized that my sweetie never wished me the same as we got upthis morning. I have mixed thoughts on this. She is a most excellent girlfriend, and has a ton of really wond
I hate that I had to switch from MT.
Well that is really not the case. What I really miss was how cool my blog looked using MT. The old site had a nice appearance, and now I have to figure out how to make this one look cool. WordPress is MUCH easier to understand, but after several hours of trying to find just the right theme, I have come up a bit short. However adding pages in WP is so much more simple.
