Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Back in 1974 (or was it '73???)..

.. I used to watch Villa Alegre on PBS. I was fascinated by the model village they showed at the opening and closing of the show. And how the word "Villa Alegre" would light up over the village like fireworks. I wanted to live there. I didn't learn any Spanish, but still I liked the show.

That kid looks suspiciously like Dora.
Joe, you need to guest-blog Villa Allegre for my Repressed 1970s memory series. I get so jealous when you scoop me on these things.

Sunny: I don't think many people have.

Caroline: Next time I'm at the library I might check you-tube for this show, because I don't really remember any of the episodes

I loved the theme song for that show! It occasionally pops into my mind...especially the end credits:

"Goodbye, Amigos/
our show is over/We'll see you
the next time/on Villa Alegre..."

I watched that show religiously and to this day the only Spanish I know is to be able to count to 10
