If I'm going to spend 5 grand on a bike, the thing better do all the pedalling for me.

It's real pretty at night. They are so into Christmas lights.

The theme for this year's holiday extravaganza at the park on the corner is Under The Sea. Gary Christmas.

I have never ever liked poinsettias but we get them every year because the other Mr. likes them. So it gives me great pleasure to announce that we are unable to find any here in Medellin this year. I am thrilled.

Tonight the city officially welcomes in the Christmas season. Although they've already started, fireworks will go off at midnight all over the city for well over an hour. Nothing huge, but little neighborhood displays going off everywhere up and down the valley and we'll have a great view. Can't help but stay awake. The noise is terrible. Poor Curly will be trying to climb on top of my head as a way of finding comfort.

And the apartment buildings are all turning on their lights tonight, too. It's cool...each building has its own theme. They really love their Christmas lights here.

Wow, how nice of you to remember. Thanks so much for the offer, but it's way too complicated to get things sent down here and I don't think Maxi has me on his delivery schedule any longer. Plus, (to be honest) there's a good chance I'd cry when I got it because sentimental Christmas and all that. So it's better without. But thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving to my favorite slores. I'm very grateful to have you people around.

The turkey's about to go into the oven. I found some actual sweet potatoes, but cranberry sauce had to be made from Craisins and it's not bad at all. And my pies are looking pretty good. Also no pumpkin here, so it's some kind of local squash (pie de calabeza!) with enough pumpkin pie spice to make it tasty.

Show me your pies (Photo Pie Day)

This just seems so perfectly American and the ideal finish to your traditional turkducken dinner: the Pumple Cake: pumpkin pie baked in a chocolate cake, apple pie baked in a yellow cake, and the whole thing covered in frosting. Available only in Philadelphia.

Soaking it in Coca Cola will get rid of the rust. I've brought many cast iron skillets back from the dead with Coca cola.

The idea of a bologna cake is gross, but if it was made out of olive loaf I'd probably try it. Also my favorite part is the accent squiggle made from canned cheese. It's really a perfect touch.
