We have any blog / google experts here? A new problem has arisen with the site

Perhaps one of our bloggers did something odd a couple weeks ago that broke the blog - I just got a notification from google that we have a skyrocketing number of broken links. In the old days I would have asked Kat but I hope we have somebody else who understands this and what to do about it! Contact me at caray@mappamundi.com if you can help. Thanks!

Mujeres de Negro, Miercoles 3/22/17 Chapter 26: Escape Routes



My apologies for this bare bones approach; I'm having a crazy week.

A former girlfriend of Zacarías visited his mother. Tania was happy to see her. She had been trying to reach Julio but his cell didn't answer. She was eager to prove that her son was a good person.
They went to Vanessa's house and Isabella told them that they had received a farewell letter from Julio. Tania told them Julio had called her on the day of the fire about her son's reputation. She had tried to call him later but he didn't answer.
Vanessa apologised to Tania that they could not help her. The girlfriend said they should go to the police immediately.

La Piloto #12 3.22.17: In Which Yolanda Continues to Learn Harsh Life Lessons...

• The DEA helicopter lands in Mexico and the news spreads that the police have found 5 survivors of the plane crash after Zeki hijacked the plane. They hypothesize that he did this to escape the DEA because they found out that CAA was actually owned by John Lucio. In the helipad, Ortega helps Dave out of the helicopter as the paramedics come and ask if he’s okay. Ortega runs after Zulima and tells her that she’s not going anywhere because they know she also has ties to the Lucios. Zulima tells them that she’s hurt and wants to go home but hauls her off to jail.
• In the Lucio airstrip, Oscar finds out that that the survivors, including Zulima, have landed in Mexico. He warns her to not say anything or she’s dead and shoots the TV in anger.
• Amanda is handcuffed and taken to the jail cell where Lizbeth and Olivia are pacing. They wonder if Amanda talked when Amanda is brought in. They ask her who the man she was talking to was and she explains that it was a prosecutor and he tried to persuade her to say all she knew about the Lucios and Zeki in exchange for a lower sentence. They asks her if she took the deal but Amanda points out that she’s still in jail with them so obviously she didn’t. Just then, they bring in Zulima and all the girls go in for a hug. They ask her if she’s okay and Zulima confirms she is despite the fact that she almost died. They then ask about Yolanda and Zulima confirms that she heard she was okay and that John rescued her in the forest. A policeman comes in and tells the girls that Olivia has a visitor.

A Que No Me Dejas #135 3.22.17: The Calm After the Pukestorm

Gonzalo reminds Juan, the husband of Celeste who is in critical condition because of the ammonia poisoning, that Alan is also grave danger but Juan doesn’t care; he will demand the hotel for damages. Juan then asks the doctor to take him to his wife but the doctor explains that his wife will be out for the next few hours. Juan reiterates that he will destroy Gonzalo and leaves. Leonel takes the opportunity to pour salt in the wound by reminding them that they will lose everything with Juan’s lawsuit. Valentina tells him that it isn’t the best time to talk about this and Mauricio declares that what Juan does is their problem, not his. Ileana hadn’t thought of the consequences but Leonel is right. Gonzalo doesn’t want to talk about that now and Monica agrees. Leonel is not giving up though: he explains that everything will go to crap but Valentina proposes that they talk to Juan when he’s calmer and offer to pay everything. Leonel reminds her that they are not in LA and their decision will affect everyone involved. Gaston thinks Juan spoke out of anger but Leonel doesn’t think so. He declares that he has the best solution for the Murats.

In the pier, Rene contemplates his life decisions and how they have led him to where he is now. He declares that he doesn’t want Alan to die even though their lives have taken different turns. He cries and thinks about when he and Alan were younger and the best of friends. Rene knows Alan was always a better and more noble person than he was and is sad that this is the price he may have to pay.

Leonel explains that he can prevent Alan going to jail and the Mauva Hotel going to bankruptcy but the price will be all the shares of the hotel. Monica doesn’t think Alan will go to jail but Leonel reminds them that Almudena and Alan were responsible for the food that was contaminated; the first ones that will be demanded will be them. He then tells Gonzalo that he has the power and money to fix things but Gonzalo grabs him by the suit and Gaston and Mauricio try to separate them. Leonel tells them that he can fix everything but if they don’t want his help, oh well! He leaves and Gonzalo begs Mauricio and Gaston to let them punch Leonel, just once. All the women shake their heads at this obvious show of machismo.

We pick up where we left off yesterday with David questioning what she was doing with Miguel. Luciana exclaims, “What are you distrusting me now?” David responds, “I just can’t believe you have done that!” Luciana says, “To what are you referring?” David goes on to talk about the problems and then accuses Luciana of dropping everything to go see Miguel. Luciana says, “I can’t believe that you’re saying this and I can’t believe your complaints either because I’m suffering without you. What I’m trying to do is show you I’m on your side and on your family’s side.” She angrily walks out of the office.

La Piloto #11 3.22.17: In Which Yolanda Lands in Costa Rica and (Possibly) Loses Someone Else...

• At the airstrip, John goes into his office and tries to radio into the plane Zeki has hijacked. Oscar tells him that they need to go because the DEA is coming but John wants to find out if Yolanda is safe first. Oscar tells him that they are in this mess because of her but John doesn’t believe she had anything to do with it. Oscar asks him if he’s sure but John is silent and Oscar remind him that he has doubts and that’s the problem. John confesses that he has one doubt: why did Zeki hijack the plane after leaving the warehouse if he was with the DEA?
• On the plane, Zeki tells the co-pilot that they need to reach Panama ASAP but the co-pilot warns him that they don’t have enough fuel and to fly lower so the radar does not detect them.

• Yolanda asks Zulima if she knows what is going on with Zeki but she shakes her head. Yolanda wonders where they will go as they barely have enough fuel to even make it to Costa Rica. Zulima then asks what happened with Dalberto and Yolanda confesses that he’s a rat that works with the DEA and even lied about his name. Zulima is shocked to hear the news.
• Outside the airport, Olivia, Amanda and Lizbeth are arrested. The DEA find the bag with the cash in their possession.

La Piloto #10: Taking A Flier Or From The Frying Pan Into The Fire

Parte 1 ~

Yolanda makes her escape from the restaurant in back of the druggies’ car, the money bag in tow.  “--Keep your head down!!” Dave/Alberto is chasing them but loses them along the way.

Yoli calls John to let him know the score and the problem: Dave done us in.  He’s working for the DEA!  He’s a federale!”  He’s another jerkwad, like all the other men in my life.   My choice of men sucks—and I wanted to help him through!  John tells her to get back to the airport and get on the flight back to Mexico.  Trust in a guy named Pincheros (Good enough).   Don’t get caught by the Feds in the U.S., cuz he cannot help her there.

The driver says he’s got some merchandise to deliver and he’ll take her back to the airport. (I think.)

Zeki meanwhile, gets lose from the ropes, finds a gun and knocks Oscar over the head when his back is turned.  Zulima manages to make it to her car and is ready to start the car when Zeki puts a gun in her face.  He gets in and forces her to drive.

Becker’s Amerian Counterpart at the airport or the mission com room tells Dave, El Duro, to pack it in.  The mission’s been a total failure.  The Lucio’s are going underground and Yolanda with them.  Duro says nope.  He’s certain JL will move heaven and earth to get Yolanda back there today.

Duro learns about the shootout at the Lucio’s Miami warehouse and that Monica’s there in the middle of it.  Oscar and Mena Arley escape on the back of a motor cycle.

Druggie gets back to the airport and meets up with Bald Dude – Pineros.  He hides her in a huge cinch bag.

On the Centroamerica plane, the stewardesses are muy impactado to see Alberto show a DEA badge and demand to speak to the pilot of the plane, which he plans to search.  Of course, the agents find nothing, not even in the baggage area.  The gals’ flight documents are in order.  Duro wants to know where Yoli is. He tells the other agents he’ll take it from there.  He sits down and looks out the window while the luggage for the flight back is being loaded.  He sees the huge cinch bag move and he orders to pilots to open up the baggage area.  CoPiloto bangs him over the head and lets him drop in.  JL will reward him handily for capturing the DEA agent.  They take off immediately and without permission to escape the Feds and get back to Mexico.

Julio confesses that he wanted to tell the police everything when he first found out about the attempt on his life but that’s when Borgetti kidnapped him and burned down ZZ. Borgetti asks if he already knows what he’s capable of, why doesn’t he cooperate.

Eddy tells Rebecca that he is asking for a loan to buy her out of the house since half of it is hers. Rebecca doesn’t want to and asks that he put the house in Danna’s name. She knows it won’t make up for all the time she spent away from her but it will help. Eddy agrees and offers to take care of her expenses for the time being so she can stay at a hotel.

Eddy confesses that he loved her free spirit, once, but then that same free spirit caused him plenty of pain. He cell phone rings and it is Vanessa, who asks him if everything is going food. He confirms it is and invites her for coffee tomorrow after she drops off Diego. Vanessa agrees and they hang up. Rebecca thought Vanessa was married but Eddy explains that she’s not with Julio so there’s nothing wrong with them seeing each other. He then goes to check on Danna as Rebecca sets the table.

A Que No Me Dejas (AQNMD) #133. Monday March 20, 2017. The Calm Before The Pukestorm


The human popsicle stashed in Julieta's freezer has begun to thaw, unbeknownst to our obsessive loon who was too consumed by debilitating angst over the prospect of losing her Corazón 2.0.

Carolina puts her foot down as regards her accidental pregnancy: She will raise her baby as a single mother with dignity. As much as she loves René, she refuses to use her child as a bargaining chip to force a romantic commitment. She also threatens her mother that she would cut all ties with her if any blabbing about the baby to Gonzalo takes place. Carolina doesn't consider her baby a meal ticket to live off the Murats' wealth.

René loses a fortune (un dineral) at the illegal poker table. He retires to the bar to lick his wounds and freak out over his unwanted paternity.

PREMIOS TVyNOVELAS 2017: Stevey's Thoughts on the Upcoming March 26th Awards Show

PREMIOS TVyNOVELAS 2017- SUNDAY, MARCH 26th 

YOUR GUIDE TO THE UPCOMING MEXICAN EMMY AWARDS…. FOR TELENOVELAS!!!

Hi everybody, Stevey here!!       
Recently, while I was enjoying a martini over on the ECDLP patio, mention was made of the 'awards' that it had (or had not) won.  This led me to reflect that a lot of people up in the ‘Northern Parts’ might not have any idea what everybody was talking about.  Seeing as they are, sort of, a 'big thing' (like Mexico’s answer to the Emmy Awards), that this year’s awards ceremony is coming up on Sunday, March 26th, AND that you guys are just as much a part of this delightfully idiosyncratic Latin American television entertainment drama known as the telenovelas… I thought I'd do a little posting as to what’s going on, and about the nominees for this year’s big event.  I hope that you guys enjoy it, find it useful and/or interesting… and I really look forward to whatever discussion, conversation, supposition, or hypothesizing might result of it between everybody!!  Here goes...

Vino el Amor #96 – Friday 3/17/2017: Water, Water, Everywhere Else, But Not a Drop for Lil

Yesterday –  (See Julie’s rippin’ good tale at the end of yesterday’s recap)
The review starts with Dr. Evil Anderson trying to convince David he’s at fault for Fer’s suicide attempt. It includes Juan and Mark plotting in English; Luci and Leon discussing Mamá’s betrayal, and Marta and Lilian’s confrontation in the kitchen.

Today – (All you’ve got is me)
Dr. Evil and Fer – Fer is telling the doc that she feels worse now that she realized her affection for her nana was misplaced because of what she did with Fer’s own granddaddy. Dr. Evil jumps up, very concerned that she might try to off herself again. Fer insists that she’s almost positively sure she didn’t want to commit suicide, she only wanted to feel better. Dr. Evil (with $$$$ dancing in his head) assures her that her motives are hidden deep inside her and that’s what he’s there for. Fer says, juarever. She is going to concentrate on defending her feelings for her aunt, her grandmother and for, sigh, Tano, un tipazo.

Marta and Lil – The two continue their argument in the kitchen. Marta says she’s no longer afraid of Lil’s threats. Since she lost the love of Fer and her children, there’s nothing to hold her back, so beware, Lil. Marta sneers that the Patron still prefers her to Lil to care for the children. Lil answers back that she’ll figure out a way to get close to the grandchildren and if Marta had any dignity, she would leave. Lil gloats that she didn’t get Fernando nor Gut. Marta has had enough and hands Lil a drippy ladle and tells her here, if she wants to be a good grandmother, finish the meal. Marta stalks out. Yikes, Lil holds the ladle away from her as if it were a poisonous snake and yells for Sonia, who has the bad luck to be within earshot of the battlefield.

Mujeres de Negro 3.17.17 Chapter 23: Reconciliations

Vanessa meets with her boss, Lourdes, to ask if she has any translation jobs lined up. Lourdes didn’t think she’d have time with all that is happening but she tells that she has a cook book translation lined. She had already given it to someone else but Chef Barbosa didn’t like that the translator knew nothing of cooking. She asks Vanessa to call the chef herself and it will be up to her. Vanessa thanks her.

Sometime later, Vanessa arrives home with groceries when she hears a knock on the door. It’s Isabela, who has not heard from Julio and is getting nervous. Vanessa thought he had left her a letter like he did with her but he did not. She asks her for some time to put away the groceries and she’ll explain.

In school, Danna tells Diego that her that is going to let her see her mother. She wishes she could come back and they could be a family again. Diego hopes his own father comes back soon; he even came back from the dead. Danna asks if he pretended to be dead and Diego confirms he did but they would talk. She finally understands why he said Julio wasn’t dead when everyone said he was. Diego explains that he’s hiding from some bad people and he’s scared they have taken him. Danna hugs him.

A que no me dejas Episode 132 (3.17.17) Angelique et Monique went to see Débora at the clinique

Didn't see that coming!
We start this episode with Leonel showing surprise before Gonzalo's fair way to see things. Leonel adds that it will be a pleasure not to see anybody from the Murat family again and Gonzalo says that he is actually happier because now that the 100% of the shares are his, with just a signature he can withdraw all charges against Osvaldo and get him off jail.

"But why, why would you do such a thing" asks Leonel "We are ending on a high note here (cerrar con broche de oro), why spoil it?"
-I will because you're the one who should be behind bars, not him".

Empacho con patas
"René", says Carolina "we have a bun in the oven".
"I think you're mistaking me for my brother Alan", replies René, "who is the cook and baker. Maybe you have indigestion?"
"Maybe, the kind that will use a diaper..."
"Well, if that happen to be true, I am sure is not mine"
"Yes it is, I haven't been with anybody else"
"I wouldn't be too sure (No me consta), but anyway, that is your problem not mine"
"I am not carrying this alone, mister!" 
"You don't have to, its easy, abort it" René keeps saying "now go tell the real dad about it"
"I will have a DNA test to prove it! At least your mother didn't aborted you when your father decided he was not marrying her"
"Don't talk about my mother like this"

And things were escalating but thanks to Mauricio and Alexis, who intervene, they didn't get physical.

"Why are you crying?" asks Alexis
"What's going on here" asks Mauricio
"This is a private conversation" yells René, "Leave us alone, damn mute!"

My apologies for this being late.  This is now complete.

Vanessa brought the children home from school. They were agitated and and Vanessa told Danna that she would stay with them until her father picked her up. Eddy arrived right on cue and asked about ZZ as soon as he came in. Vanessa said the police and insurance company were investigating the fire and would call her when they knew something. She then invited him and Danna to stay for dinner, which she would have to order because she had had no time to prepare anything. The children began campaigning for pizza.
