I thought this was funny and sad at the same time

 

Talk about anything here, just keep it clean.

LOL,
Iris, I thought you were talking to a non-existing person (maybe you had gone nuts).
Nice to meet your daughter.
No, I couldn't watch it in English. I would have like it. I enjoyed it like never before. I knew every shot, but I was anxious to see Mesala to die... (what a criminal thought).

Poli, I don't think I ever saw Touch of Evil. Let me see, I'm not sure what film this is.

Alfonso, I have corrected your text, but I don't know if I have done it well. What is LOL? And it seems you don't have a very good opinion of my sanity...

Touch of Evil was filmed in Black and White 1959. It was directed by Orson Welles. It deals with a contemporary and controversial subject matter-- border diputes between US and Mexico. It's very cinematic.
Heston does not use his usual bravado here. Caution: It is not for children unless they are very mature minded.

OOPS! I forgot to write this in Spanish

Thanks a lot, Iris! You did it superb!
But it will be easier for any of us to see your corrections if you do them in a different colour. When editing, you have a capital A over a black line, on the above part of the editing box. If you open this tab you will be able to choose a colour among those of the rainbow (el arco Iris ).

LOL stands for lot of laughs. Jane told me. Afterwards, I've seen it written in forums and chats. Do you use this, Poli?

Iris, if you want to speak about your sanity, you will have to open another thread . But don't worry, my opinion of yours is a very good opinion. What do you think about mine?

OK, Poli, I know the movie you speak about. In Spanish it's called Sed de mal. Of course, it's a really good movie. Heston doing a kind of Mexican sheriff. Yes, I love it.

Thanks for your explanations about editing. A pestaña in this context is a tab. And yes, I'll probably need another thread or a private message to talk about your sanity (just kidding!)

Must be old age, but I don't know the meaning of OMG either. What is it?
