  • Maria hits Buenos Aires by Lucille lucil95783@aol.com 8/19/2012 8:33:49 AM
    My sister came down to Rio in 1974 and I took her to Buenos Aires. I don't think the city was quite ready for her. From the moment we hit downtown she was in shopper's orbit. We scoured that mall from beginning to end, and back. While I didn't buy an... more

  • Agree with me or else.... by Dark Knight 8/15/2012 3:36:36 AM

  • Tourists in Buenos Aires by Lucille lucil95783@aol.com 8/14/2012 7:48:27 AM

    Well, what do you know? Here I am heading off on another rant-and-rave on one of my favorite topics: email spam. I’d really like to know how this spam thing works. Obviously it is something of a franchise program, for if you’ll note, you’ll get five... more
