As part of my ongoing efforts to learn Spanish, I'm highlighting a Spanish word each day as part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I'm also sharing the random thoughts that pop into my head when I try to pronounce them.

Today's Spanish word is >>timonel<< (helmsman). And now for some random thoughts.
1 - The helmsman is the person who is steering the boat. A pretty important job, cause crashing your boat into another boat or a reef, rocks, the shore, a shipping container etc. would kind of spoil the day big time.
2 - Machines can steer your boat too. We have autohelm steering which does the work for us. Yes, the robots are taking over the world, but in some ways, won't life be so much easier?
3 - Some robots are good (like Rosie the Robot Maid on the Jetsons), others not so good.
Have you ever helmed a boat? Do you worry about robots taking over? What's your favorite word that starts with "T"?
Thanks for stopping by our blog - we love it when people come visit! We're also on Facebook - pop by and say hi!
