Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

Julio Iglesias certainly does Spain on and off


The big news out of Madrid is that Spanish singer Julio Iglesias has married Dutch model Miranda Rijnsburger, his (on-and-off-again) partner for the past 20 years.

The wedding was apparently a big secret.

What is evidently no secret is that the prolific Iglesias is determined to single-handidy increase the population of Spain.

For me, the most interesting element of this fertile story is that Iglesias, who is sixty-six, chose to marry the mother of five of his children. He was previously married  to Isabel Preysler who apparently only managed to have three of his children (evidently there was not enough “on” in this particular on-and-off-again relationship).

Rumor has it that the plucky Rijnsburger was actually narrowly out-birthed by the hapless, and thusly, unmarried, Theodora Ichibotty, who managed a whopping six Iglesias offspring, even though that relationship was clearly “on” a good deal. However, Ichibotty has a left eye that some times rolls back into her head – apparently the direct result of cranial pressure from too much baering-down. This apparently affected her ability to view Iglesias’ concerts or see him coming when he needed things to be “on”.

The wedding took place at the Virgen del Carmen church in the southern jet-set resort of Marbella.

Rev. Roberto Rojo Aguado, one of three priests who celebrated the ceremony (because one was clearly not enough), told The Associated Press on Friday that the couple were married Tuesday. He said the ceremony was attended by only two witnesses (about the size of his current fan base) – and, the couple’s five children.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
