    Hello, crazy people. Let’s start another week because time doesn’t stop. We do. The topics chosen by Jeff and Lucy for this week are important as always. I’m in expectation on them.
    Aecio from the loser country on World Cup 2014.

  3. Tania Says:

    Hi! I saw the match last night. It was 1:00 am in my country.
    Germany won the World Cup 2014 with 1 -0 victory over Argentina in Rio de Janeiro.
    It was very exciting. I am not a football fan but I like to watch the most important fights.

  4. Tania Says:

    Hi! Dear Aecio, thank you for your lines to me.
    Yes, many other things rule our life.
    But I think when we can have the chance to enjoy… we have to enjoy.
    And the Brazilians are wonderful people.

  5. Tania Says:

    Hi, Parviz! You should write for every post on our blog.
    You can write us very nice things and news.

  6. Dan Says:

    I am waiting to hear from our correspondent from Berlin, Emiliano.

  7. Dan Says:

    I was looking at the news on France 24
    At a point, reporting about the kidnapping of the Nigerian girls
    by Boko Haram they showed a video of one of their leaders making fun for the request of releasing the girls.

    That knucklehead has the brain of an eight year old kid. Unbelievable!

  8. Tania Says:

    Hi! Very good joke with “our correspondent from Berlin”.
    Dear Emiliano, we are waiting for news from you indeed.

    Have a good time!
