I got a great response to last week’s post about things I’ve started to do since coming to Spain. But I have a major problem: I keep thinking of things to add to the list! (For example, baking using grams instead of the standard measuring cups.) But no matter, it was a fun post, and I’m glad so many of you can identify.

Spain’s 100 Montaditos Chain Hits NYC. Man, New York City is becoming so Spanish, am I right? 100 Montaditos, if you don’t know, is a sandwich shop. But the key is that the sandwiches are quite small, meaning you need to order three or four to get full. And that’s a good thing! You get to try more combinations that way. The price is right, too: the sandwiches range in price from $1 to $2.50, and on Wednesdays when all the montaditos are $1, along with the soft drinks. (In Spain, the huge mug of beer and the tinto de verano are included in this. Point for Spain.)

How Vaccine Fears Fueled the Resurgence of Preventable Diseases. If anything me da rabia, it’s this vaccine nonsense. Let’s blame Jenny McCarthy.
