Monday 10th March 2014..always something to do!!!

Started a new week by doing chores to help Carolyn at her casa she is entertaining three house guests today for a week and not sure how it works but funds go to a local organization that helps children in the campo.

Then did some errands in town and was home by lunch time and watered the plants on the steps and on the roof but so much easier now I bought myself a 30 foot hose and spray.

I watched some live tennis from Indian Wells and got my lesson ready for class tonight after the usual book work I will present them with the article below about the drug cartels.

At 3.30m I went to pick up Paola and I took her to her dance class and then went to Office Depot to get some copies printed and then went to the tennis club I forget to tell you last week when I was playing three strings in my racket broke that has never happened to me before so I picked up the racket ready for tomorrow’s game.

Then took the kid home and dashed straight to my English class…they did enjoy the article and as always I think they enjoyed the class.

Back home for a late supper and did some sorting and trip planning whilst listening to a hockey game on the computer….hope you like this little story!!

To brighten your day!!
What is Resurrection?
While the priest was presenting a children's sermon.
He asked the children if they knew what the Resurrection was.


Now, asking questions during children's sermons is crucial,
but at the same time, asking children questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous.
In response to the question, a little boy raised his hand.


The priest called on him and the boy said,
"I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor."
It took ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough for the service to continue.


Mexico kills drug lord thought dead for three years

Security is high around the morgue where the body is being held

Officials in Mexico say that they have killed a drug lord who was reported to have been shot dead three years ago.

Nazario Moreno, known as El Mas Loco - The Craziest One - was the founder of the La Familia cartel and regarded as the spiritual leader of its offshoot, the brutal Knights Templar.

His death was first announced after a 2010 shootout, but no body was found and he was reportedly seen alive since.

Police said he was finally tracked down and shot dead in Michoacan state.

"From a fingerprint analysis we have confirmed 100% that this was Nazario Moreno Gonzalez," said Tomas Zeron, the head of investigations at the federal prosecutor's office.

'Dangerous person'

Government security spokesman Alejandro Rubido said security officials had been tracking Moreno for some time.

"Anonymous tips indicated that Nazario Moreno was not only living, but continued operating at the head of a criminal group conducting extortion, kidnapping and other crimes," he said at a news briefing in Mexico City.

"This person was known as dangerous," he said, with police believing he had committed multiple murders since his reported death.

Police used fingerprints to confirm the identity of the dead body

Mr Rubido said Moreno was stopped by police on Sunday morning in the village of Tumbiscatio in Michoacan state.

"When he was asked to turn himself in, he opened fire and was killed," he said.

Moreno, 43, was the founder of the La Familia cartel, which dominated the drugs trade in Michoacan but was believed to have been severely weakened by his reported death.

Knights Templar drug cartel

  • First emerged in 2011 as an offshoot of La Familia Michoacana drug cartel
  • Takes its name from a Christian military order from the Middle Ages
  • Claims to protect Michoacan residents from kidnappings, extortion and robberies committed by rival gangs
  • Controls much of the methamphetamine and marijuana trade in western Mexico

Its breakaway group, the Knights Templar - know for its brutality and its use of religious imagery - subsequently took over many of the cartel's operations and runs much of the methamphetamine production and trafficking in the west of Mexico.

The BBC's Mexico correspondent Will Grant says Moreno's killing is a second major success for the government's campaign against the drugs trade within a month.

In late February, Joaquin Guzman, known as El Chapo or "Shorty" was arrested in Sinaloa state.

His Sinaloa cartel is believed to be one of the biggest criminal organisations in the world, trafficking drugs into more than 50 countries worldwide.

He was one of Mexico's most-wanted men and had been on the run since escaping a high-security prison in a laundry basket in 2001.

Some 60,000 people have died across Mexico since 2006 when the previous government under Felipe Calderon deployed the military against the drugs gangs.
