Sooner Or Later

There's a new business next door to Fuengirola's zoo (Bioparc). It's a center for fitness, beauty, and health. I don't know the source of the name. It's anything but subtle (although, I assume, it's unintentional).


AT LEAST WITH SPANISH PRONUNCIATION, IT'S PRONOUNCED "DEE."

Only the good...

  1. I hope the fitness centre is so successful that it needs to expand over the zoo territory. (Personal opinion - though do feel free to disagree. Am I not generous?)

    1. Oh, Bioparc I see. Maybe I jumped the gun. :-)

      I hope you would approve of our Bioparc. I hate traditional zoos, but this anything but. Beautiful, rolling habitats with lots of space. A big rescue program. Lots of love provided. No catching in the wild, of course, unless to rescue. And a great education program, too.

  2. I'm thinking I'd avoid that place.

      At least it's not called "People Di Here."

  3. I couldn't figure out what you were talking about until I saw the name of the video. I had "dee" firmly in my head and didn't even think about "die" as a possible pronunciation. I thought perhaps there some cultural reference of which I was ignorant. In my defense I have only about 1/2 of my coffee this morning. ;-)

      Normally, I would read it as 'dee,' here. But the fact that the first word was in English (People), I immediately went with the English pronunciation. I wonder if they know. But, don't worry. I knew my point would be missed at first.

  4. I need to join a fitness center, or at least get walking, as I've been eating too much for the past 10 days!

      You should check this one out. Talk about a hard sell.

  5. Another "lost in translation" :) I don't think it would encourage me to go there.

      It just shows how important a little research can be. Of course, this is one fitness center in town whose name I have NOT forgotten.

  6. To show you how truly gay I am, my first reading was "People Di" [with long "i"/eye sound] -- but I thought of Princess Diana before I thought of die.

      Apparently, you're not the only one! However, it hadn't crossed my mind. Could I be straight? Oh my god!

  10. Whoa, I missed a post or two... I don't like any kind of jelled creature, by whatever name. Once, at the Shore (NJ), when I was a kid, I got a piece of jellyfish in my swimsuit, and I had some kind of sting or reaction on the skin of my hip...è www... It makes me shiver to think of it. But, your posts are always so picturesque and light-hearted, I don't mind reading about this topic here :)
    hey... New banner photo? The color combo is great. Love the blue?

    1. That wasn't a question 😊, just a typo? See. 😻

      But, yes, I DO love the blue! Thanks for noticing the banner photo. It's a view from the Roman Theatre in Málaga of part of the Alcazaba. When I was a kid in New York, I saw jellyfish while I was swimming, but never thought anything of them until I was older. Fortunately, I was never stung.

  11. Is this some kind of weird Spanish reference to Lady Di? Like in Diana? Probably.

      It hadn't crossed my mind, but you and Michael Dodd (http://indodd.blogspot.com) both went there!

  12. That is an odd, but incredibly honest, business name. Next thing you know they'll rename it Soylent Green.

    The Billy Joel tune really perked up my (early) morning!

      It's amazing (well maybe not amazing) how often that song comes to mind when I'm in a church around here.

      Jacarandas line many of the streets in town. It's getting pretty stunning right now with them all in bloom.

  15. Too funny Mitch ~~ did you straighten them out in there?

    It's all in the translation or not I guess!

      I don't want to be the one to tell them. But, then again, it could be a brilliant marketing pitch.
