  1. I had to say out loud in my native tongue first "Pedra, paper, estisores"😄 but I agree with everybody else: Rock, paper, scissors.
  2. I don't have any advise. I am so sorry your family is going through this.
  3. My oldest dd got the Pfizer vaccine when Health Care providers got their vaccines in December (she is done with both doses). She didn't have any side effects. Phase 1C just opened on Monday, and although in Nashville they are still vaccinating teachers, here in the country there are plenty of openings for appointments. My dd2 and I will receive our first dose of the Moderna vaccines this coming Saturday!
  4. I also cringe when Spaniards are stereotyped as bull fighters and gipsy dancers. I abhor bull fights, and they are not very common in my region of Spain. Although I don't have anything against gipsy people, the majority of Spaniards are not of gypsy decent and we don't dance Flamenco. My traditional regional dance is "La Sardana." Each region of Spain has their own traditions (food and language), with different traditional clothing (and I have only seen them on people who participate in traditional dances during what we call "Fiestas Mayores"). Stereotyping in my opinion comes with a gen
  5. I am from the TN (many SBC here). This is spot on. I' m Methodist too ( my church is pretty liberal), but many of my friends (used to be friends) attend SBC. Many are lovely people,... people who in the last 4 years....well, lets just say I don't understand them any more. When politics is preached from the pulpit, they do not question it. If their pastor says it is so, then it is so. Same goes for some Evangelical nondenominational churches in this area (one of the pastors was arrested because he participated in the events of January 6th). Three of the families I used to do co-op with wen
  6. I am "A Jack of All Trades, and Master of None." Keeping my hands busy has helped me keep sane during the pandemic. My youngest child is graduating homeschooling this year (he is mostly self-teaching); and I am not tutoring as the tutorial where I was going to work this school year decided not to mask or social distance, so I have had a lot of free time. Growing up, and all through high school, I used to love to draw. Some family members framed some of my drawings and water colors and still have them own the wall. When I started college (STEM), I was too busy to do anything but stud
  7. My local pharmacy has an online portal. My dd and I have asthma so we are in group 1C, and as it opens on Monday, I requested appointment on Friday. Now we wait for them to call. We also signed up with the county , through TN's health portal. https://vaccinate.tn.gov/ There is also an online vaccination finder that uses your zipcode to let you know where you can find vaccination sites near you and what kind of vaccines they have .https://vaccinefinder.org/search/ We will go to whatever location contact us first, and take whatever vaccine the offer us 😉
  8. School of Architecture @ UT-Knoxville.

  10. My son looks like my brother, and both of them look like my father. I used to look look like my father too, but now that I am middle age I look like my mother, go figure.
  11. I am a bit younger than you and I am in no way an exercise expert. I have just started exercising daily this last two months (encouraged by someone here on this board). I like walking, but as I am not leaving my house/property --due mostly to the fact that people do not were masks here--I have been using low impact exercise videos from you tube. I really like Lucy Wyndham: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCag7XoiJLutjBTsM0tAzUzg because she demonstrates every move before I have to do it. I would like to find more exercise instructors like her. I would highly recommend her videos to
  12. I have not seen a thread for this month yet, so..... I am slowly plotting a long with Duolingo French (December was not a good month). I found a resource for those of you studying Spanish: https://www.ellibrototal.com/ltotal/?fbclid=IwAR1B4jCe8qEtuUEhIoUfrDDNcs9lQoc77-zjyIQ-w2FhfX70uV3OMjLwxAM You may already have this resource so disregard it if it is old news. It has audiobooks (different age groups) and I thought it would be helpful to someone. Is there a thread just to post resources for each language?
  13. Compared to 911 not working (I know there is a new number we are supposed to use in case of an emergency, so that is good), and people not being able to get their prescriptions because of a lack of cash, this is not a biggie, but cash only in our small local market until AT@T is back online (cashier also mentioned they can't order new inventory). I am finding this act of terrorism a bit strange mostly because I would not expect Nashville to be a target... I have not seen many updates (maybe the news tonight will shine some light).
  14. I am Catalan/Spanish and in my cultures many boy names can be made into a girl names. So Jose will become Josefa, Francisco will be Francisca, Mario will be Maria, etc. Many boys have the Maria part too (being Catholic and all) so Jose Maria for a boy and Maria Jose for a girl. Family names can go to either gender (at least in my family). I have a cousin name Alberta (Berta for short) because her father's name is Alberto; and many Joses and Josefas, and Antonios and Antonias 🙂
