Dude. You’re never fully dressed without a smile!

-We were so very happy to hear from our friend Larry on Bill’s birthday post. It’d been a long time and we were worried. Larry – we love you and are glad to hear you’re going strong!
-We’ve been watching the January 6th hearings at school. The kids seem totally fascinated by them. I told “Dr. C” we were going to watch them and that there was a possibility some parents might object. He said “If they object to any of our curriculum they’re free to move their children to a school more consistent with their beliefs.” That’s why I could never teach in a public school.
-The weather is wonderful this weekend and we’re enjoying Saturday and Sunday on the lake. For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been spending every available minute working on the “Hawks nest” and we can all use a break. Alex says were ahead of schedule and, besides, he has a contractor coming to work on a surprise for all of us. We have no idea what the surprise is but I’m guessing we’ll find out on the 4th! xoxo Ben and David

Dude. Check out these luscious Latin bois!

When we were together at Big Cedar Lodge for our Easter celebration, somehow the subject of “Latinos” came up. The question was: “Who in our group are “latinos” and exactly what is a “Latino”? We know that Mateo (Matty) and Alexandro (Alex) are Latinos and we’re pretty sure Dante is as well. But we couldn’t agree on what a “Latino” is. When we got home, I did a bit of on-line research and found an article “Ask a Scholar: What is the True Definition of Latino?” Here’s part of it:
“The word latino is a Spanish word that has entered the English language. In Spanish, it means someone belonging to the people of ancient Latium, in Italy, whose language was Latin; so the Romans of course were latinos. Another and related meaning of latino in Spanish refers to someone who belongs to the cultures of the Romance Languages, that is, those peoples whose language, and to a varying extent, whose culture, too, derive from the language and civilization of Rome, which was latin. Among these Romance languages are Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Rumanian. Therefore, all Italians, Frenchmen, Spaniards, Rumanians, and Portuguese, as well as all those Latin Americans whose language is Spanish or Portuguese (an English-speaking person from Jamaica would not qualify) are latinos. This last meaning can be found in the English language as well, in the English word “Latin,” when used in some contexts; thus famous “Latin” performers have been Rodolfo Valentino and Carmen Miranda. In this context, the English word “Latin” has carried a certain aura of joix de vivre, or of sexuality, sometimes to the point of caricature and satire.”
If you’re interested, here’s the link to the article:
In any case, I’m of the opinion that Latinos are some of the hottest, most sexual men in the world. I’m including some photos that pretty much prove the point 🙂 David
