    And here, in Spain, we usually throw the rooftops before the wedding to take place which may then be the bride or groom, composite / prepared and without not boyfriend / girlfriend.

    Guests with puzzled faces and sponsors without knowing what to say.
    bought dress, the ceremony and the banquet prepared, and NO GAMES FOR MADRID 2020.

    Congratulations to TOKYO 2020, I’m sure you will do fine.

    ISTANBUL was a very good choice as well as Madrid, my city, and we were all face circumstances has been (to say nothing of “asshole”) with the elimination of our candidacy for the first change.

    Happiness for some, deep disappointment for others, is the law when playing. WIN SOME LOSE AND OTHERS.

    Congratulations TOKYO, and other years will be Istanbul.
    To Madrid and I think we can dismiss, definitely over the years, to celebrate the Olympics.
    I personally feel, other close friends will have rejoiced because they had really wanted to spend more money on therefore think that has already spent more than enough, and Madrid or Spain NOT FOR MORE COSTS, and citizens to pay more taxes.

    In that spirit can never get NOTHING, and it has become apparent and clear that the investment they thought allocate the event was clearly insufficient.

    NO, you can hold some OLYMPICS thinking that the solution will be to create jobs and get us out of the CRISIS.

    So NO, we need to make, scratching his pocket and then we’ll see.

    NOT we can improve our home, have a big party at her, thinking only to employ the workers. NO, we know that if we have a big party and improve our home, we must devote a LOT OF MONEY.

    NOT no improvement without expense, and the amount spent on the games, thinking them to be solution for our ills, was certainly RIDICULOUS , and bickering over with by many locals and Spanish.

    Moreover, as it is possible that some of the heads for Madrid’s bid KNOW NOT SPEAKING ENGLISH.
    As have the mug so hard to go as an official spokesperson city ??or a foreign nation, without SPEAK PROPER ENGLISH.

    D. Felipe, good, very good, worthy REPRESENTATIVE Madrid’s candidacy. In a very good words expressed in three languages.
    Perfecto French, Castilian great, and very correct English.
    As should have made ??each and every one who came and spoke. Do not understand how educated people leaving abroad
    represented the interests of its citizens do not know or even ENGLISH.

    If you are to me, which is saying something.

    He knows to THE Gatufo and do not know who represents us?.
    Ok for gentlemen.
    no money and no English are surprised that we eliminate the first?.

    I frankly NO, sorry, but it was expected and more logical.


    And take note for the future.

    NOT TO SELL THE BEAR SKIN before the hunt.

    Hey guys,

    I was listening to Podcast 927 Being tidy and messy which is great as usual.

    Listening to Jeff remembering the time when he still had hair, I could not help but thinking that would be great to see that photo, is that possible?

    Again, further on telling about his 10 siblings, I thought it would be nice one podcast from one of his siblings telling us how was Jeff at home back in the days.

    If I remember it correctly, there was a recording in the past from Jeff’s Mom.

    Ok, enough. Now I am going to listen to n.928 Understanding Corporate Structure.

    Thank you
