Is there a location that we can go to so that we may check our status? I know that there is a 30 post rule, but just wondering where I stood. How about forks? You know like great restaurants?? One fork for 1-5 posts etc...
Just an idea. Didn't want to be a junior forever!

Rubia66, yes, if you click on the little face with a question mark to its right - to the right of your time/date posted (or next to ANYONE'S posting) you'll see how many messages were posted as well as the profile of that person. It seems you have 36 messages posted so you're no longer a Junior Member anyway! You're now a.... umm...

rgf, REALLY? I'm not so sure about that...but you could be right. I swear my madrileña ladyfriend uses "caminando" as well. Above, I was referring to that Gipsy Kings song "Caminando Por La Calle". Anyone know it? It can be found on the Cantos de Amor CD.

Saludos, MadridMan

Ok ok - 'nough of this. I, for one, DON'T want to be a fork, a Michelin star, a tourist (that was the worst)or a senior member(if I ever get to 30 emails - thanks MM for telling us how to find this)- I would rather live with the label of "junior whopper" than senior member. Something about "senior" just doesn't seem to apply to the mind sets of current members - junior or senior. And, before cries of age discrimination start - I am NOT referring to the cronoligcal age of any member.

MM - you hold the title of boss, moderator, head honcho, creator and organizer - and you opened a can of worms here. But, it's still your site - you can elect to call us just about anything .... but please, please, please, not a fork or a tourist!!!

Hi Puna! What? You don't want to be a FORK? Well, how 'bout a HANGING HAM or a good bottle of Vino de la Mesa?? hehehe...

I think you're right. I DID open a can of worms. And without that fork I can't enjoy them the way I'd hoped. I'm inclined to just leave things as they are. But, if you all have other suggestions, maybe we'll hit on something everyone will like.

Honestely, I don't like Spanophile, it sounds like a "taco" o "palabrota"

MM, I definitely caught that GK reference, and I even started humming the song in my head! BTW, en vez de "yo te dí", isn't it, "yo te ví"? Anyway, good tune, and it makes me think of when I studied in Sevilla. Also, although andando is primarily used, they also use caminando too. Maybe it is used more in reference to hiking, like caminando por el campo, o algo así.Re: the designations, like you said, what about pata negra y serrano?

Jen, regarding the GK reference, I'm listening now.. I always thought it was "Caminando por la calle yo te dí", but you're right, it sounds more like "Caminando por la calle yo te ví" -- which makes A LOT more sense.. (I'm showing my lack of proficiency in Spanish). Maybe the GK remade this song...that it was a latin-american song originally??.. For this reason they use "Caminando" and not "Andando" like rgf said?? Anyway, it's one of my favorite songs on that "Cantos de Amor" CD --- GREAT CD!!

Saludos, MadridMan
