What to do (really useful) with a very old laptop?0

I am thinking...I would thank any, literally ANY suggestion. While in Marrakesh (We leave in less than 48 hours) I will think a bit more). In the next post some ideas and many pictures, I hope. Please,visit our blog after the 19th. Until then no updates will be uploaded.
Today the invitation from the "Royal Family" arrived at last, only one week before the event and NOT to my relief we will be in Morocco. Jaan got the famous picture with the king last year, but I did not attend then. In 2009 we will not be honored.
Book just finished: El Clan del Oso Cavernario. Reading it left me very tired because I had to read it in one night (no sleep at all) and one morning. My favorite person today was:

J O o N A Bead Letter S

He dialogs, participates, gives opinions and politely declines my insistent invitations to try new foods; today the issue was banana dumplings. I tested his patience and asked 16 different times and to each one his answer was a very kind but firm: "No, mami, no! haishash;" Later, after a prudent pause he requested his favorite"Dame ico tomate con agggrro popapo." He got it, I was charmed.

I am also listening to this song that usually takes my sadness away. He was Hawaian; I am sad. The song was sang first by Judy Garland in the classical movie: The Wizard of Oz.

Because the first video is no longer available, here is a link to another one:

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby ii ii iii
Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh ooooh
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me ee ee eeh
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops thats where you'll find me oh
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,why, oh why can't I? i iiii

Well I see trees of green and
Red roses too,
I'll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark and I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying, I...I love you
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more
Than we'll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world (w)oohoorld

Someday I'll wish upon a star,
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top that's where you'll find me
Oh, Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I? I hiii ?

En español:

En algún lugar sobre el arcoiris
muy, muy alto…
hay una tierra de la escuché contar
en una canción de cuna.

En algún lugar sobre el arcoiris,
los cielos son azules
y los sueños que te atreves a soñar
se vuelven realidad.

Algún día pediré un deseo a una estrella
y despertaré muy lejos de las nubes
dejándolas atrás,
donde los problemas son como gotas de limón
lejos, muy por encima de las chimeneas,
ahí es donde me encontrarás.

En algún lugar sobre el arcoiris
vuelan pájaros celestes.
Los pájaros vuelan por encima del arcoiris,
entonces, ¿por yo no podría?

Si los pájaros vuelan alegremente
más allá del arcoiris…
¿Por qué yo no podría?

Pero mi version favorita sigue siendo la tuya, cuando estabas chiquitica y cantabas "y ahora tu a la quebrada,
Pura nostalgia, no calidad musical, como siempre, me haces mucha falta.

It is perfectly safe to walk in the medina with your children.
Just smile and be pleasant to the shopkeepers.
"Lah, shokran," means "No , thank you."
You will really not be bothered too much.

If you ask a price and they tell you something much too high just offer a lower price - or go to fixed price places.
It is a wonderful experience.
Hope you have a wonderful visit.
Best wishes

Y ¿qué paso con el 'tigresito' voluntarioso que describía no hace tanto tiempo? por lo que a mí respecta, encuentro siempre motivos de regocijo ante las 'paradas' siempre originales de esos niños. ¡hermoooosos y amaaaados!
