URUGUAY AND HOLLAND FOR A PLACE IN THE FINAL FOR WORLD CUP SOCCER 2010 SOUTH AFRICA


Hoy antes del partido entre Uruguay y Holanda por la Copa Mundial de Futbol Sudafrica 2010,querida celeste escribo esto:
un pais pequeño, con solo 3 millones de habitantes, hoy esta cuarto entre los mejores del mundo, fuimos los que una vez ya te recibimos en 1928, 1930 y en 1950 “Maracanazo” cuando en Brasil nadie esperaba dimos la vuelta un resultado y salimos Campeones del Mundo, ese recuerdo siempre quedo en todos y talves en lugar de ayudarnos, nos estanco, porque quedamos viviendo de los recuerdos, que son buenos los recuerdos, pero siempre debemos seguir luchando para conseguir nuevas hazañas.

Hoy hemos logrado despues de 40 años, estar entre los 4 primeros del Mundo, ya hemos logrado mas de lo que esperabamos, y seguimos soñando, no se como saldra este partido frente a Holanda, pero sea cual sea el resultado, la mayor de las ganancias la tenemos, lo conseguimos, nos hemos superado a nosotros, mejoramos, decidimos luchar y poner nuestra ” garra charrua “ , en pos de un nuevo sueño.

CHESNUT TREE OF ANNE FRANK

2004

“The two of us looked out at the blue sky, the bare chestnut tree glistening with dew…” – Anne Frank, 23 February 1944

Architects, builders and tree specialists have designed a special device support and reinforcement. This flexible construction keeps the trunk in place in case of fracture or inclination. But not in contact with the tree, so as not to impede their growth. The construction is necessary to ensure the safety of the interior gardens of the block.

Ten youth shoots of the chesnut tree of the Anne Franks house coming from Holland carry to the United States before the end of the year,the one she saw when she was hidden in the attic.
One of the shoot will be put in the ” zero zone”  of New York, in where the memorial of the 11 september will put and other maybe will be put in the Continue reading
