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!

Vino el Amor #99; Wednesday, March 22, 2017: Vino la Salvadora, Luciana

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.

Vino el Amor, Lunes 3/20/17 Chapter 97: Paternity Blues


David tried to assure Luciana that this separation is temporary. She looks a bit doubtful but he says that these are difficult times but they will get through them. He misses her. Before they can seal it with a kiss Ramón entered to tell them that they need to talk about diverting the river water. Complicated, but the only way at the moment. After he leaves the room Luciana asks whether that is the only way. And David says they need also to find out what is causing the current problem.

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.

Vino el Amor, #95, Thursday Mar 16, 2017: A Dry Spell Begins

Hi all! Cynthia is dealing with a cupcake emergency tonight. She will return as your recapper next week.

Luci tells Dave she thinks it's better for everyone if they break up. Dave can't believe life is so unfair, it's the second time that what he loves most is taken away from him. Luci says no, it's just not their time. He tells her that she's shown him the best time he's had in ages, and she will stay with him in his heart. They hug. She doesn't want to hurt anyone else with their love. He says they have to consider themselves very lucky to have lived such a special love. He says "I love you" (te amo), and she replies "I will always love you" (yo siempre te voy a amar).

They share one last whiskery kiss. Luciana walks away crying.

Lilian is having coffee with Brian. She's gloating about Marta's admission of the affair. Bri says he's sorry and he doesn't know what to say, but he looks as though he also doesn't give a crap. Lil continues that Marta said she did it to hurt Lil AND because she was in love with Lil's husband, in that order. Bri says he's sure Marta is suffering. Lil says Marta deserves it; she fooled Brian too. Lil is excited that this is giving her a second chance to be with David and with her granddaughter. (I guess Bobby can go fly a kite.) And with Brian, too. Brian dutifully smiles and puts his hand on hers. Lil assures him that she's not a bad person, and had good reason to treat Marta the way she did.

Brian kisses her hand and says, "enjoy your coffee." Steamy!

Vino el Amor #94; Wednesday, March 15, 2017: Vino la Verdad


As we left off yesterday, the truth comes out about Marta’s affair with Fernando. Luciana, standing in the living room is shocked at what she hears and says, “Mamá?” Fernanda also looks up and says, “Nana, what is happening?” Lil angrily looks at Marta and says, “Now they all know who you really are! And now they understand why I am the way I am with you!” Marta just looks down and is now looking ashamed and doesn’t know what to say.  Fernanda is just shocked. Lil comes running down the stairs saying, “She took my husband away from me just to hurt me!” Luciana looks up at Lil and says, “Señora, please!” Lil just looks at Luciana and tells her, “As much as it hurts to say the truth, your mother destroyed my marriage. She went with my husband KNOWING he was married to me and she didn’t care.” Marta comes out to Lu saying, “No, no, no, it wasn’t like that at all. I swear they weren’t.” But Lil goes on, “I didn’t say anything. I suffered alone with this. And why?” (Lil looks at Fernanda) “Because of you dear. I didn’t want to destroy your illusions.” Marta tries to get out of it by saying she only said those words to annoy Lilian and goes on to say, “I’m simply not capable of doing those things.”

Vino El Amor #93, Tuesday, March 14, 2017: Vino el Rescues and Miscues


In this episode, both Miguel and Carito survive their torture via that grungy Mark for now. If only the audience could be spared from grungy Mark. David is torn - should he get a second opinion or go with Dr. Evil Martin Mull's (bought by the succubis) opinion? And everyone is stunned at the last thing we hear...

Vino el Amor, Lunes 3/13/17 Chapter 92: Extreme Distress

Some scenes combined for clarity:

David got on Tano's case for getting involved with Fernanda. He started blaming him for Fernanda's depression. Tano tried explaining why it wasn't like that. Their relationship started on her birthday and he was trying to balance it so that he could return to college and so she could pick up her grades. She came to him all upset because of her differences with him (David) and wanting them to run away together. He had refused and she became angry with him. He would not comply with her request that they run away together out of respect for him and for his own father. David asked whether he knew why Fernanda was in the hospital and he said “Yes, because she took some pills.”
Yes. Because she wanted to take her own life.”
Tano looked shocked. Both should have been.

Vino el Amor, #91, Friday Mar 10, 2017: Love Hurts

Paco tells Miguel and Susan that he doesn't want to talk to Gutierrez. Susan and Mig thank him for his help and decide to wait for the truck to arrive.

Luci thinks she and Dave will talk to Fernanda when she gets better and everything will be fine, but Marta makes it clear that she thinks Fernanda is in the hospital because of Luci.

People give Susan and Mig funny looks as they pass them on the street. Susan is getting nervous. Mig lets Susan bail and decides to give Carito another chance.

Luci tells Marta that leaving David is no way to solve their problems. That will just cause more pain. "It seems that I don't matter to you," Luci says. "This is all about Fernanda. I need you to be more understanding with me. All I want of you as my mother is to hug me and console me instead of losing the love of my life."

Mark complains to Juan: "You're not my dad, I don't have to come when you call." He says that Carito deserves to die. Juan urges him not to do anything stupid. Mark replies, "If you're doing this because of Perla, just give me my money and then we can end this."

A Que No Me Dejas: Karmageddon Comes to Cancún 3/10/17

This is by far the longest list of people who deserve comeuppance and therefore the longest article so far on this subject. Due to time constraints at the time I did not post at the halfway mark to list those who had already met their ends, but they are here so we can remember them and ponder their fates. For the rest the standard questions apply:
  1. What do you think the writers did to these characters?
  2. If different from the above, what would you have done instead?
Fire away, amigos. This should be fun.

Vino el Amor #90; Thursday, March 9, 2017: Fernanda wakes up, but still angry


We left off yesterday with David cradling Fernanda in his arms. DisGrace comes in and then the whole family walks in.

As everyone goes out Fer’s bedroom door, DisGrace says to Luciana, “So, I hope you happy now!”

Vino el Amor #89; Wednesday March 8, 2017: The search for Ferzilla and vino el intento de suicidio


We begin with Luciana and David again pledging their love for one another. Luciana tells him that their dreams of having a lovely family together are about to pass by the wayside. But David tells her to never give up, to have faith, and not to throw in the towel. Luciana says, “But to think how I could lose you or that this could ruin your family, it just terrifies me.” David tells her he is not going to let this happen. He goes on and says, “These are the tests of life, the day to day family problems, the difficulties with children.” Luciana says, “Yes, you are right. I am ready to face all of that with you.”

Vino el Amor #88, Tuesday, March 7, 2017: Vino el Fer Whisperers, or Not


In this episode, Fer is upset. VERY UPSET. She's running here. She's running there. She's running back. Many try to reason with her. Few, if any, succeed. She's in full meltdown mode. Who will be the Fer Whisperer? Will anyone be the Fer Whisperer?! Please, someone, step in and soon.

Also, Gutierrez frets about his upcoming charity event, which I think is going to be screencap gold given the participants and the initial planning session. Carito and Perla are at odds, while Miguel is on the track for finding out what's going on with the illegal trafficking.

Vino el Amor, Lunes 3/6/17 Chapter 87: You Can't Handle the Truth



Some scenes combined for clarity:

Luciana remained calm in the face of the screaming banshee Graciela, who swore she would turn David's children against her. She finally delivered a sound slap at the insult to her moral fibre and stared her enemy right in the face. Too cowardly to answer back in kind, Gracie delivered one more such insult before turning tail and leaving. Luciana slapped the table in frustration.

Vino el Amor #85 Thursday March 2, 2017: Vino el tiempo para avanzar (time to move forward)

We begin where we left off yesterday as David announces to DisGrace that he is planning to buy her out of their partnership and dissolve it. DisGrace is not happy about this and begins to protest. “What”, says DisGrace, “Are you saying that I’m just like Juan? How could you? I thought you said everything was fine with us. Oh, I see you are doing this because of the olive orchard thing.” David says, “I’ve already told you that I wanted to dissolve our partnership, it’s just the best thing to do.” DisGrace continues to whine, “But WHYYYYYYYYY……????” Dave explains, “Look, I’m doing this for my children because I don’t want them to have any problems later on down the line.” DisGrace replies, “Well do you really think I’d leave them unprotected?” (Yeah DisGrace, I DO think you’d take all their money and run with it.) Dave says, “No I don’t but things have changed and it’s clear to me that you cannot separate our professional and personal realms together. It’s just best that I do things this way.”
