CURRENT EVENTS (RECIENTES ACONTECIMIENTOS)
Last Monday (July 24, 2017), I was fortunate to have the opportunity to go on another Detroit Slow Roll. There were so many people on that ride and I saw some of the coolest bikes. I also got some ideas for making my bike a bit cooler.
The Detroit Police Department did a wonderful job of keeping us all safe by stopping traffic at the intersections. Overall Detroit looked great and the citizens of Detroit are so welcoming. Detroit is coming back.

BOOK OF THE WEEK (LIBRO DE LA SEMANA)
I have read and reviewed this book a number of times over the years and each time I found it worth reading.
by Fernando Savater
Translated by Alastair Reid
Over the course of nine intensely focused chapters the advice of a father to his son on the art of living become a treatise on ethics, understanding the nature of freedom, and finding the life worth living well. (Source: Amazon)
MOVIES OF THE WEEK (PELÍCULAS DE LA SEMANA)
Here I am watching more Canadian CBC shows and this one is a riot, it is so funny and I suspect you have found yourself in some of these situations.
The misadventures of a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store. (Source: IMDB)
MUSIC OF THE WEEK (MÚSICA DE LA SEMANA)
Last week I featured The Big Bopper, who died in that terrible plane crash along with Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens. I think Ritchie Valens is most noted for singing this song, but I am sorry to I could not find a video of him actually singing La Bamba.
By Ritchie Valens
This is not Ritchie Valens
It is Lou Diamond Phillips from the film La Bamba

ART OF THE WEEK (ARTE DE LA SEMANA)
Back in 2011, I was in a half-marathon race in Arizona and visited Scottsdale. Here is a sample of some of the wall art I saw while there. If I recall correctly, this art moved, but I didn’t have a camera at the time that could capture the movement.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON (CAT) OF THE WEEK
(PERSONA (GATO) EXTRAORDINARIA DE LA SEMANA)
He lived up to his name.
Why would I make my cat the most extraordinary person (cat) of the week, perhaps this will explain why.
