    Dear people of USMB, I bring you greetings from across the pond. I have followed in the footsteps of a great Floridian feline and joined your hallowed virtua. May your posts be manifold and various. May your flag poles always be erect and proud. May your threads be awesome and your mods be wise.

    I have no idea about he political ambience around these parts but I'm sure you'll all catch on very quickly to how I hang. To help you along, here are 5 yummy and 5 yucky things according to El Señor Andaluz's epicurean tastes...

    Yummy:
    1. People who can argue both sides of a point and find that stimulating and entertaining
    2. Funny people - the bawdier the better
    3. A fine Ribera del Duero tempranillo
    4. An absence of too many rules
    5. My own recipe for mulberry ice cream
    Yucky:
    1. Angry people who are too chickensh*t to be so in RL, so do so on an internet forum
    2. El Señor is very wary of people who refer to themselves in the third person
    3. Finding religious dogma at all convincing in a debate with those who don't share your faith
    4. Brussel sprouts
    5. Men who depilate

    Now, have at ya!

    Muchísimas gracias para haber leído.

    The Spanish took Granada from the Moors.

    In the legend of Moorish Spain, the last Muslim king of Grenada, Boabdil, surrendered the keys to his city on this day, and on one of its hills, paused for a final glance at his lost dominion. The place would henceforth be known as El Ultimo Suspiro del Moro- “ the Moor’s Last Sigh.”

    His mother is said to have taunted him, and to have told him to “weep like a woman for the land he could not defend like a man.” Al Andalus- Andalusia- remains a deep wound for Islam.

    So, Andaluz....watch your back.

    Hey bro, good to see you here. :) You know you're one of my favorite people on earth, and I look forward to someday joining you in a glass or two of tempranilla someday.

    Is this a standard greeting? Perhaps you'd like to link to a post from whoever it is you think I am the sock puppet of. I can guarantee that you've never seen my like before however.

    Thank you very much! Nice avatar, btw.

    I am aware of all our local history, but whom should I be watching at my back? And as for the quote, she was a vixen that mother, she actually said: "DO NOT weep like a woman..." yadda yadda. If it's not one thing, it's your mother!

    Muy bien, ¿y tú?

    I'm guessing you're the type that sweeps up around here.
