I feel so misunderstood- expanded version

¿What do I do all day? is a blog from a woman who retired to Merida, Mexico. The blog includes updates about gardening and sight-seeing, but learning to cook Mexican food is one of her passions. Source: http://www.guidetoculinaryschools.com/library/best-mexican-cuisine-blogs I never knew that about myself! Did you? All this time I thought that cooking Indian food was my big favorite? Do I even have any Mexican recipes on my blog? I just checked, I have the mole incident and a recipe for enchilada sauce.___________________________________________________________________________________ Husband asked me what prompted me to write the above  post.I received an email from the authors of the list. In fact, this is my second email from them. The first was regarding Theresa’s Cooking Blog, their blurb said something about the Cauliflower Steamed with Whole Spices recipe. It’s a great recipe by the way, but it’s Indian in origin, not Mexican.When I didn’t respond by putting their widget on my blog they removed my blog from ...

Y’all come now!

I love the word y’all. It’s English for ustedes. You is English for usted and thee means tu. Spanish lesson aside, I spent  today sending out emails to all the bloggers that  either have attended past blogger meet and greets or said that they want to attend this year. Even with 35 people in the contact list for the convention, I am afraid that I missed someone. I also have spamfolderphobia, a irrational fear that my emails are ending up in spam folders and never seen by the intended recipients. The convention is soon, Friday, November 12th is the meet and greet, if you are coming please send an email to the registration email account which is theresainmexico at gmail dot com. Please send me your urrl so I can add it to the list. This is a different email than the one for ¿What Do I Do All Day? if I had thought it through it would have been ...

Frugality is universal

One of the blogs that I read is Tightwad , when Emma asked if anyone wanted to trade guest posts, I volunteered. This is her post, and you can read mine on her blog.  Tightwad’s frugal tribute to (New) Mexico Road trips to Acoma Pueblo, being blessed by a Havasupai elder before hiking the Grand Canyon, watching a Zuni raindance, seeing the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde, sitting in a kiva, winter camping, the smell of creosote bushes, seeing the sunrise in Sedona and the night stars at Shiprock – these are memories that Tightwad will carry with her for the rest of her life; memories gathered during a year’s hiatus in New Mexico and travelling throughout the Southwest US. Okay she realizes that New Mexico isn’t Mexico – like for starters it’s in a different country– but Tightwad thinks that the connection to the past, the strong family connections and the relationship with the earth that she experienced whilst ...

Where’s Roy Rodgers when we need him?

Recently, I read a very disturbing blog post. I would link to it but I can’t find it again. A Mommy Blogger found out that another woman had stolen photos of her children and blog posts off her blog and posted them on Facebook as her own. Is that creepy or what? Makes you want to never post a personal photo or story ever again! Copying other people’s work seems to be a problem in the blogger-sphere. I remember when Nancy from Count Down to Mexico had a problem with someone stealing her copy. Click on the link, Nancy explains it better than I ever could. You should also read the comments, there is good information there. She also links to Jennifer of Mexscape, who goes into more detail, since her blog was also ripped off. You can read that post here. The perpetrator was a real estate site selling property in Mazatlan and providing information for potential clients. It ...

My Virtual Neighbors

It’s amazing how many people that I know have blogs. Then there are the people who I only know through their blogs and the ones who I have met because of their blogs.Here is my partial list of Mérida bloggers, amazingly long as this list is, I have have met all but three of these bloggers. If you haven’t already done so, check my neighbors out and leave a comment telling them you found them through me, I’m curious to see what new blogs you all find in this list.Starting with my physically closest neighbor Lin, she writes Crazy Gone Native . Lin has been all over the world is a fascinating person. While Merida Mikey isn’t really nearby, he is one of my swim buddies from exercising in Lin’s pool. He write the aptly named Adventures of Merida Mikey. I love his diversion excursions.Just a few blocks away live Debi and Tom, Tom has a blog called Tom’s Blog ...

Home on the range or 2nd hand chef

My poor cooking blog gets neglected due to my lack of enthusiasm for typing up recipes and my general tendency to forget that I own a camera. So if you follow the link to 2nd hand Stir-Fry Cookbook you will read about meal that I made.I missed my kitchen while I was gone. I’ve gotten so used to it, that I forget that it’s huge compared to most American kitchens. I also missed cooking. I did some cooking at my sister’s house, but mostly I rummaged around in her cupboards and threw stuff together. There was one memorable meal where we had Indian food from one of the cookbooks that I bought at the used bookstore. I will write more about it later. For now, follow the link…

Phish and Spam, What a treat!

I am lucky that I don’t get a lot of spam, but sometimes it’s fun to read. I have a letter from Mr. Niam Cho, Director of Operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Sai Wan Ho Branch, Hong Kong.Mr Cho writes “I have an obscured business suggestion for you.” at least it wasn’t an obscene suggestion.Perhaps I should invest my lottery winnings in his investment scheme? Yes, I also received a notice from Fed Ex stating that CHEVRON/TEXACO LOTTERY OFFICIALS, have paid postage on a package for me. They just need to know my full name, address and sex!Cecelia Garang sent me a letter addressed to “Dearest”, no name just the overly familiar salutation. She says “considering the fact that I sourced your email contact through the Internet in search of trusted person who can assist me.” further more she states “I am seeking for long term relationship and investment assistance.” She needs my bank account number so she ...

still processing it all

The 2nd Annual Latin American Bloggers Meet and Greet has come and gone. I am still thinking about everything. Out of 28 bloggers who expressed interest, 20 of us were able to attend. Nancy and Paul of Countdown to Mexico came from the furthest away in México. Paula and Stephen from the Dodwells Head South are the furthest from their original home country (they are Brits who arrived by way of Canada). Jonna & Mimi of Blah,blah, blah Ginger tied Lin from Crazy, Gone Native for traveling the least, since they graciously opened their homes to the bloggers for the welcome party and the conferences. The blogroll for the event doesn’t match the number of attendees because some of us have more than one blog and some of the bloggers write as a team. I even think I missed a few. Here they are in alphabetical order. Blah,blah, blah Ginger Casual Restaurant Critic-Mérida,Yucatán Countdown to México Crazy, Gone Native Debi ...
