Feliz D?a del Trabajo,
Looking at my schedule this week, I'm not going to be able to make a meetup (flying late, duty, and kids this weekend). Anybody want to take the reins and make something happen? In honor of Sept. 11th this coming Friday, I suggest the topic be about that tragic day, where you were at, some simple stuff about how it affected you and our country.
Looking ahead to next week, Julius' meetup group, http://www.meetup..., is having their monthly workshop on 26 September at 10am. A great opportunity to meet some native Spanish speakers who can exchange some of their skills with yours.
Found a cool site that might help with some tough phrases: http://www.spanis.... Queries multiple engines, sometimes getting different results, but can point you in the right direction.
Sorry I can't make it this week, but I'll be checking my email, seeing as how I'm an addict. Let's keep working this... we've got a good group with some motivation.
