Happy New Year to everybody.I'll be the first one more time. "It's good to laugh" (somebody said).Did you know this story?

A philosopher said one day: "to be is to do".
Another philopher added: "to do is to be".
Finally a third one said: "do-be-do-be-do-be-do-be-do-be-do- be-do-...yeahhhhh".

sorry pilar, it was me, not Rodrigo who wrote the previous one. But it doesn't mind. Now that i can i recommend you another one; one of the latest mika's álbum, blue done, don't you like it?

PILAR dijo...

Remember guys you say: "It doesn't matter" or "Never mind", ok?, and 'lengua/idioma'en ingles se escribe las dos/2 con 'g': "language". No problem
I love all your suggestions, don't know how to thank you...

PILAR dijo...

Fernando, I can't find Mika's album. Are you sure the title is 'blue done'? Ta

Rodrigo dijo...

It's part of the latest album 'The boy who knew too much'
