    My 11 hectares of Lewis peat heather and finest gneiss granite may well be my salvation ! A bit of envy here Chicureo ...

    I know the feeling and treasure our little piece of heaven as well. What we really have been surprised in life — is how we were taught to reinvent ourselves from fertile alluvial soil to the rocky barren hillsides and literally converted it — into the rich earth that now gives sustence to our family.

    “The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet.”
    (One of my father's favorite sayings by James Oppenheim)

    You could hate me
    You could love me
    You could wish that I would die
    But your nasty snarels
    And your looks
    Shall never make me cry.

    lo que mas me gusta del pobre mediocre de “Chicureo” un suboficial banderillero de la banda de torturadores y corruptos de pinochotito.
    es que claramente es un suboficial y eso lo vi en el servicio militar y este pobre tipo tira frases para parecer intelectual y la verdad es un pobre sumbo entrenado por un pinocagoncito.
    supongo que van a bloquear mi opinion por estar en español, pero lo interesante para mi es este pobre mediocre que se hace el intelctual cuando violo los derechos humanos en su pais y creo que ahora tiene miedo.porque sabe lo que se les viene cuando cambie la constitucion.
    si me bloquean este comentario lo pondre en ingles y listo
    un bruto entrenado por el corrupto pinochoto es un bruto aunque ponga frases tontas que no entiende. LTA

    No need to translate — as it will only make you out as the misinformed arse that you truly are.

    In truth, I'm simply just a small farmer in the Aconcagua valley where life has been very good for our family.

    During the early 1970s the Allende government nationalized most of our family's land. After the
    '73 coup d' état Allende was dead, our family was in near bankruptcy and we did not reaquire our lost farmlands.

    I was blessed with an excellent education and was recruted into the naval academy — as our nation was being seriously theatened by an Argentine invasion.

    As I said, I was accepted in the signals corps and later served in the reserves. Of the family cousins, I was the only one to wager my inheritance in assuming our family farm.

    As far as to the human rights abuses, I fortunately was not a participant and sadly, about 2,800 people lost their life.

    Meanwhile, in Argentina it is estimated 30,000 were eliminated in methods that were shocking — including the diabolical harvest of babies before dropping the mother's bodies — by helicopters into the sea...

    ...as I quoted earlier...

    You could hate me
    You could love me
    You could wish that I would die
    But your nasty snarels
    And your looks
    Shall never make me cry.
