      Spanish tradition. One grape for every chime of the clock at midnight. If you're successful, you'll have good luck, good fortune... something GOOD in the new year. It's really fun, especially out on the public squares when hundreds of people are doing the same thing. But it's best to get seedless grapes!

      Body stocking. I thought the view from the front was ridiculous until I saw the back with her "eqjuipment" taped and wired.

      The woman on these showa are all glamorous and dressed in next to nothing. The men are not. He did look like a vampire to me, so I drained the color from his skin and added red eyes ... as if it weren't already obvious enough.

      I'll see what I can get for you. He found it on Youtube and the recipe wasn't specific, so he had to fudge a bit as he went along and he also thought he ended up with twice the cinnamon there should have been. I am ALWAYS successful with my grape consumption. Elena couldn't find any without seeds, so I just swallowed those, too.

      The duos they choose for these New Year's coverage are comical. The women usually wear oddly inappropriate sex-kitten outfits and the men usually can't pale in looks.

      Do you believe that?!? POORLY camouflaged is more like it. Such a ridiculous outfit... from beginning to end.

  11. Happiest of New Year's to you, San Geraldo and all those you love and care for. I remember the 12 grapes on New Year's eve from a dinner in Madrid. The folks at the next table explained the tradition and its origins to us. It was a bit of a challenge to each 12 one right after the other.

      Our first year in Sevilla, Jerry bought the biggest, most beautiful grapes he could find. With seeds (by mistake)! We learned our lesson. Now we get the smallest we can find without seeds.
