A_butterfly_kissBefore the cream

A_butterfly_kissOven cooked quince

The best quince desert I have ever had in my life. Never go to the café to eat ever again!

I cooked this fist time. Didn’t follow a recipe. Wasn’t sure if I could cook it in aluminium foil. But it worked. My mother cooks this with very little water and sugar in a pan. But my one beats hers :-). Yeah who would think I would cook something better than her ! I am really proud of myself.

ps: we usually have this with clotted cream. But I didn’t have it at home so we had it with whipped cream instead. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kissRocket, kilt smoked salmon and poached egg salad

Made by my man :-)

ps: I don’t eat salmon when I am out or don’t purchase ready cooked salmon. I prefer to cook it at home myself in different ways. I didn’t make this. But I liked it a lot. Made a nice change. And I like to learn how to smoke fish. One day! 6 months ago


You were close. I had 32 dvd’s. Two of them are tv dramas and will be going to a friend.

Good job TG. You really are good at guessing. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kissIt really is a good one :-)

Funny beer name that is :-) I liked the one I had. But can’t remember much about the taste now. I will certainly try porter beer again. But I don’t think I can find what you have attached here. Maybe if I ever come to the USA. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kissAM vs FM

AM (or Amplitude Modulation) and FM (or Frequency Modulation) are ways of broadcasting radio signals. Both transmit the information in the form of electromagnetic waves. AM works by modulating (varying) the amplitude of the signal or carrier transmitted according to the information being sent, while the frequency remains constant. This differs from FM technology in which information (sound) is encoded by varying the frequency of the wave and the amplitude is kept constant.

A_butterfly_kissHow many credit cards, debit card etc you need for this purse?

I wasn’t a good consumer in the past. Otherwise why would I buy a big purse like this? But the good news is I have been a responsible shopper in the last 5 years.

I am glad this new purse will go to the right person now. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kiss41 - Purse

I have this brand new purse to give to one of my best friend. She loves this sort of big purses. I bought this years ago from Mango and decided to cancel all my credit cards and shop cards. I am sure it will be useful for her as her purse looked old to me. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kiss27 - Porter beer

Recently I had English porter beer at the pub. By the look of it I thought it was stout. I have just found out that it’s a kind of dark beer. The description is;

Porter is a dark style of beer originating in London in the 18th century, descended from brown beer, a well hopped beer made from brown malt. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kiss38 - I sold 30 dvd's today

A_butterfly_kissGeorge Orwell - Eric Arthur Blair 1903-1950 and some quotes by him

Orwell was a British journalist and author, who wrote two of the most famous novels of the 20th century ‘Animal Farm’ and ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’.

Orwell was born Eric Arthur Blair on 25 June 1903 in eastern India, the son of a British colonial civil servant. He was educated in England and, after he left Eton, joined the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, then a British colony. He resigned in 1927 and decided to become a writer. In 1928, he moved to Paris where lack of success as a writer forced him into a series of menial jobs. He described his experiences in his first book, ‘Down and Out in Paris and London’, published in 1933. He took the name George Orwell, shortly before its publication. This was followed by his first novel, ‘Burmese Days’, in 1934.

An anarchist in the late 1920s, by the 1930s he had begun to consider himself a socialist. In 1936, he was commissioned to write an account of poverty among unemployed miners in northern England, which resulted in ‘The Road to Wigan Pier’ (1937). Late in 1936, Orwell travelled to Spain to fight for the Republicans against Franco’s Nationalists. He was forced to flee in fear of his life from Soviet-backed communists who were suppressing revolutionary socialist dissenters. The experience turned him into a lifelong anti-Stalinist.

Between 1941 and 1943, Orwell worked on propaganda for the BBC. In 1943, he became literary editor of the Tribune, a weekly left-wing magazine. By now he was a prolific journalist, writing articles, reviews and books.

In 1945, Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ was published. A political fable set in a farmyard but based on Stalin’s betrayal of the Russian Revolution, it made Orwell’s name and ensured he was financially comfortable for the first time in his life. ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’ was published four years later. Set in an imaginary totalitarian future, the book made a deep impression, with its title and many phrases – such as ‘Big Brother is watching you’, ‘newspeak’ and ‘doublethink’ – entering popular use. By now Orwell’s health was deteriorating and he died of tuberculosis on 21 January 1950.


Some Quotes by him:

War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.

We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

A_butterfly_kissWhat is the difference between white and brown vinegar?

The difference between white and malt vinegar is that white vinegar is purified vinegar. It is a type of vinegar that contains only acid and water while malt vinegar is grain-based vinegar which is got from malting barley. The white vinegar has an uninteresting flavour when compared to malt vinegar. As the malt vinegar contains malted barley, it has a complex flavour. As white vinegar is more acidic, it is better than malt vinegar for cleaning purposes and also for disinfecting homes. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kissI would like to tick this goal off as done too

Why? Because I know I won’t buy no more perfume until the end of this year. I will probably not buy anything until next April. I won’t need it. This was actually a goal for 2012. But with the new bottle’s arrival as a present it had to be included to 2013 too.

I am very happy to adopt this goal here. And well done me for keeping my promise to myself. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kissI would like to tick this goal off as done too

At the beginning of 2013 I aimed to watch minimum 43 movies this year. Which is done already. I am sure I will be watching many more movies this year but would like to tick this off as done for several reasons now.

I think instead I will adopt a new goal for movies like watch 12 foreign movies or something a bit later this year or earlier next year. This year I have other priorities that I need to concentrate as well.

PS: Not watched as much as tv series, dramas as I wanted but I am still happy with it. 6 months ago

Well done me. It was a great afford. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kiss37 - Some unwanted photos gone in the bin

I used to keep my photos in photo albums in the past. Who didn’t? Now we have digital cameras. I no longer have photos to put in photo albums. I basically copy the photos I take to a memory stick. I was home last week and wanted to go through my albums one night. I organised them year by year. And got rid of some photos that had duplicates like. I just kept the best looking photo out of those similar looking ones. And I also got rid of some photos with an ex. Don’t see the point keeping a photo of someone no longer in my life. But let me say that I did not throw away the ones have good memories with. Say I took a photo of an ex on his own kind of photos are gone in the bin.

But what do you do with the wedding album? I am not sure what to do with it. It doesn’t bother me but don’t see any reason to keep it. I think I will leave it alone for the time being. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kiss36 - A very unreliable suitcase gone in the bin today

I had to get rid of this suitcase before I have an accident. I said my last good byes to it as soon as I unpacked today. I guess I don’t need to replace it at the moment. 6 months ago

A_butterfly_kissJapanese people are amazing

I had an unbelievable experience at a Japanese Café in London about two years ago. I would like to share it with you. While the waitress cleaning the table next to us as we arrived she dropped a tiny piece of salad or food from the plate on my partner. Within minutes the manager came with a white envelope. Later we opened it and found £20 note in it. We were shocked. Plus they didn’t charge anything towards the food or drinks we had that day. In what country this would happen I can’t think? That was the day I knew I wanted to go to Japan. They were very considerate in our case. And I have so many good memories about Japanese people from my trip to Japan now. They are honest, considerate, kind and polite. It is a country that I can live happily.

This would be a case of employing not well trained staff in western world. But am sure it was about being trustworthy in your case. Thanks for sharing your experience. Love reading things like this. Makes me feel optimistic in life. 6 months ago
