Welcome, Txitxi!

Good to see someone from this side of the "charco"...I´ve been a member since ´04 and I´ve learned a lot from so many other great talents here. I hope you have a great time reading and posting.

Been to your site...great work! I will have to take my time to watch your videos. So refreshing to see that there are still a few left creating this type of work. Congratulations and welcome!

Hi Carlos
Nice to meet you, I have seen your work and have to congratulate you for it. Good job man. I am so happy for being here with so many things to learn and share.
Como eres ya viejo en esto si tengo algun problema ... algunas palabritas en castellano me vendran bien para echarme una mano, hay tanta informacion que no se bien ni por donde empezar.
so keep in touch.
thanks for writing back.

Arantxa Orbegozo.

Greetings, Arantxa!

Welcome to the forum. I see you have met our other resident Spaniard, Carlito. The WWW has brought everyone in the world much closer together. Sometimes we even have to go across the "charco" to meet someone that may live just down the road.

Mike

(still waiting for you to cross the charco, Miguelín...who knows? Gwyneth might still be here with Mario)

Thanks, Arantxa, for your kind words.
(pues, sí, a veces me siento viejo en todos los aspectos...ja!...sin ningún problema, si te puedo echar un cable en cualquier cosita, aquí me tienes...tampoco es que sea tan experto en esto, ¿sabes?)

Looking forward to seeing your posts...!

Carlito, Arantxa,

I'm not so interested in Mario Batali. We need to set some kind of trap for him, like an egg custard at the end of a long winding dead-end road. However, Ms. Paltrow!, she may be more difficult to lure. I would like to paint a portrait of you reciting your paella recipe to Gweneth. Mostly her, and maybe a part of your shadow as it lay ac ... I digress.

I'm still saving my pasetas for the crossing of the charco. Now I just have to figure out exactly what is a "charco?" If I have to walk across a bed of charcoals to get somewhere (like heaven) then I'm out. My chances were never that good.

Maybe Arantxa can shed some light on this charco.

Hi there
I dont really know who is Mario Batali, Ms. Paltrow or Gweneth.... but I do know about
Paella, I am the queen cooking paella, so if any of you ever crosses the Charco, I will be here ready to cook one for you, share it with a cup wine, and good conversation.
