So, the fact that the Catalans speak Catalan is one of the things you are supposed to hate in Barcelona?  Like French in France?  What?  And the food?

Great, this is Sony commercial.  Like I need help shooting food in restaurants if I have daylight coming through a window.  I need help in places that have very little light and this video does nothing to enlighten us in that regard, therefore it is a waste of time.

Google is making my life a living Hell. I have wasted untold hours trying to renew my blog domain name registrations, off and on for months now, spending sometimes two hours a day and they are threatening to cancel my domain name subscriptions by today unless I get in and renew and they won't let me in.

This was given to me over the phone by a tech at Enom, which now hosts Google Blogger's domain name, but who has no connection to Google to resolve anything. He told me that he gets 15 of these Goggle calls a day (multiply that by the number of tech reps Enom has), but that it is not Google's fault, it is the fault of the Google consumers who may have missed a Google e-mail. He told me to go to, get this: support@google.com/a/answer/4377734?PEF_topic=2781713

Got that? If I have one number or digit wrong, I am screwed. Corporate America run amok!!  The link did not work and I have still not resolved the issue.

Story
Introduction
Gerry Dawes was awarded Spain's prestigious Premio Nacional de Gastronomía (National Gastronomy Award) in 2003. He writes and speaks frequently on Spanish wine and gastronomy and leads gastronomy, wine and cultural tours to Spain. He was a finalist for the 2001 James Beard Foundation's Journalism Award for Best Magazine Writing on Wine, won The Cava Institute's First Prize for Journalism for his article on cava in 2004, was awarded the CineGourLand “Cinéfilos y Gourmets” (Cinephiles & Gourmets) prize in 2009 in Getxo (Vizcaya) and received the 2009 Association of Food Journalists Second Prize for Best Food Feature in a Magazine for his Food Arts article, a retrospective piece about Catalan star chef, Ferran Adrià.

In December, 2009, Dawes was awarded the Food Arts Silver Spoon Award in a profile written by José Andrés.

". . .That we were the first to introduce American readers to Ferran Adrià in 1997 and have ever since continued to bring you a blow-by-blow narrative of Spain's riveting ferment is chiefly due to our Spanish correspondent, Gerry "Mr. Spain" Dawes, the messianic wine and food journalist raised in Southern Illinois and possessor of a self-accumulated doctorate in the Spanish table. Gerry once again brings us up to the very minute. . ." - - Michael & Ariane Batterberry, Editor-in-Chief/Publisher and Founding Editor/Publisher, Food Arts, October 2009.
