  3. Thanks for the link:

    From "At the Doctor" by Raúl Solnado

    As a first-time patient in hospital, addressing to a nurse

    “...all I want you to do for me is get me a nice private room.” Well, there she went on her way to speak to the owner of the hospital, and they were terribly nice. They got me a huge private room, lots of space, very nice...and just to keep me company, they put eighty-five other patients in the room!"


    Lol, classic! I enjoy silly humour that gently pokes fun at human foibles in everyday life. The above excerpt is similar to England's Tommy Cooper.

    RIP. A sad loss but a fine legacy.

  4. A very sad day for Portugal and the portuguese theather. We lost a great actor and a great man, he will be very missed. There are so few great actors from his generation left...

    Até sempre Sr. Raul Solnado, e muito obrigada pelos bons momentos e diversão que nos proporcionou durante tantos anos.

    Que Deus o abençoe!

  8. About the Mccann's and their hunt of the Australian/New Zealand lady:

    WHY THEY ASK THE PUBLIC TO SPOT THE LADY?
    THEY HAVE THE MOST ACCURATE WIZARD, WHICH CAN SPOT EVERYTHING- ARAGAO CORREIA!!! JUST LET HIM CONTACT THE "GIRLS WHICH CAME FROM THE STARS" THEY WILL TELL HIM WHO IS THAT LADY AND WHERE SHE IS.

    If we have pacience and wait a bit, we will see Aragao coming up with a significant connection between that lady and the couple which he is trying to fit in Joana case as her potencial buyers. WE CAN ALREADY PREDICT THE ACTIONS OF THAT TEAM AND WE ARE NOT WIZARDS OR WITCHeS, we just follow the charade since the beginning with attention. ONE TEAM WORKS ON TOP OF THE OTHER....and both fall down every time, more then the previous one.

    MCCANN'S YOU ALREADY LOOSE THE CONTROL OF YOUR TEAMS... in a desesperate temption to survive, they spread ghosts on top of ghosts making your abduction theory so irreal that only can be a collection of jokes.
    If you want to make some money and reach the guinness, write a book with all sights of Maddie, witnesses and potencial abductors portrait, in two years after Madeleine. I'm surpised that your saga was not yet published in the guiness book. YOU ALREADY OVERTAKE SADHAM ( with all his potencial copys) and all most wanted cowboys of the New World. BUT ARAGAO WILL BE THERE, STANDING FOR YOU AND FOR YOUR MONEY. Have you posted already a message on his blog, which he starts for you? Como podem ser ingratos e tao mal agradecidos? He was looking for suport! Leonor... she don't know how to write, this is why he wrote her confession, but you?....

  9. I did not know the works of Raul Solnado. I am aware however of the respect and love his people had for him. What a wonderful tribute to be adored when you leave this mortal curl. May he rest forever in peace.
