I have been away for some time


I want to apologize to my followers because I haven't been very active lately and my posts have dropped to zero during March 2011. Of course I have a great excuse: I simply have no time!

Since 2011 began, the company where I work (yes, bloggers have to make a living too) was acquired by a very big (BIG would be more appropriate) multinational concern and since then I have been immersed in the ongoing process of merging our operations, including my own job's activities with those of the now larger company.
Please don't be mistaken, the change is very very positive, and in the long run will be the best thing that has happened to both companies.

However, it has all been quite hectic, and the days are very busy, reports, visits (here and there, at the HQ). Though the whole thing is very positive, it has taken its toll on me, I am worn out at the end of each day and simply have nothing left in me to go ahead with my blog.

Add to this my BOOK, or, more appropriately "THE BOOK", which is now being edited for publishing. The publisher's editor asks questions, points out typos and mistakes, needs me to read the proofs, check the images, read both the Spanish and English versions... it is thrilling and delightful, but in the context of my job and its changes is quite exhausting.

So, I do apologize, because, despite all these absorbing events, I have been reading Gravier's "Argentina Bíblica and Bibilónica" (1980. Ed. Albatross), which my wife has kindly given to me as a birthday gift!. And it has opened up some new paths to follow... (soon! please don't despair). I also have managed to write a draft on some strange indians in southern Patagonia (the arwurwur's), which, I promise, will be posted during Easter.

So, thank you for putting up with me, and, once again, please feel free to get in touch with me at:

I thank those who have written (I will post a very interesting mail which links the "horned Fuegian beast" Xalpen with the Phoenicians - strange but interesting link suggested by one of my blog's readers)...

And last, but not least: April 22nd is EARTH DAY, find out what YOU CAN DO, to help poor Mother Earth here: and their "Billion acts of Green".

Have a great Easter and, to my Jewish readers: Jag Sameaj for Passover which begins tonight.
