† Rest in Peace Father Marcial Maciel, LC


Father Marcial Maciel, founder of the Legionaries of Christ passed away yesterday January 30, 2008. Father Maciel died at the age of 87 of natural causes in the United States of America.

Father Maciel was the founder of the schools I have attended almost all my life. Since preschool, elementary, middle, and high school at the "Instituto Cumbres" and in college at the "Universidad AnĂ¡huac". The Legionaries of Christ have been an important part of my formation.

I just wish to extend my prayers and condolences for the Maciel family and to all the community of the Legionaries of Christ and the "Regnum Christi" Movement.

50th Anniversary of LEGO

Today, January 28th, is the 50th birthday of the LEGO brick.medium_2225773969_e4dfa8a211_o

Lego history began in 1932 in Billund, Denmark, where Ole Kirk Christansen founded a small factory of wooden toys. The name Lego comes from a fusion of the Danish words “LEg” and “GOdt” which means "play well".

In 1947, Christansen bought the first plastic injection molding machine in Denmark. He developed the early prototypes for the LEGO brick and in 1958 he patented the LEGO brick. Today’s LEGO bricks still fit bricks from 1958.

Below is a timeline (from, click the image for the original article) of LEGO.


LEGO, is launching a kit to commemorate it's 50th birthday, 3 gold bricks included (LEGO Town Plan).

The Lion King

100_3923 Sunday afternoon I went to see The Lion King, the theater play from Broadway, although I didn't saw it on Broadway... I saw it in the "Auditorio Nacional" in Mexico City.

Back in 2005 when I went to New York City I tried to see it, but was not able to get tickets. So Sunday I've finally got my chance to see it.

The show was beautiful. Everything was spectacular, from the costumes, to the music, to the production. Even for a tour show, no details were left unattended. The show was presented in it's original language (thanks!) with Spanish subtitles on the video screens. The "Auditorio Nacional" it's a fairly large venue, it accommodates up to 5,500 persons for a theater play, so even if you don't get the same feeling you'll get in a smaller theater in Broadway, it was a very good experience.
