    Hi,

    There are a few must – haves in life.
    They are air, food and drinks, clothing, shelter, and…
    ESLPodcast.
    Everything else is optional.
    Together with our teachers and our blog friends…
    yes, a great pleasure!

    All the best for you all in 2017!

    Gustavo Dudamel conductor.
    Music, flowers, … a wonderful day.

    Pete, tell me:
    What do you think about Christmas?
    As you look so sad because all is over for me could be a good question
    and even better your reply.

    By my side I always want that these Christmas Feast past away as soon
    as possible.
    Next January 6th here in Spain it will be over too and inside I will be in
    peace because usually these Christmas time make me sad.
    This year even more sad as I have been absolutely alone, well not so alone
    as Gatufo has been with me.
    So Pete, please tell me, do you really like these Christmas Feast?

    Also the other blogers, do you really like these time or not?. Don´t get you
    somehow sad remembering when we were children?.
    On this time I miss my mother, my father, other friends that passed away and
    curiously my father, mather, mather in law and sister in law passed away in
    December.
    The bad news about Cuca multiple sclerosis were also in December 1999
    so no, I don´t really like December or Christmas.

    Evidently I am not very happy along this past month.
