How to get through 2 weeks of self quarantine

Bingo and friends have been busy looking for ways to cope with the big lock down!

Playing twister was probably not a good idea, too much contact and too many paws!

 Khun Ocha's Cookbook

Sweet Vietnamese Pork

Another SE Asian dish, this is very similar to some local Thai recipes, though there are some essential differences.  Vietnamese fish sauce tends to be more pungent, so I believe it is more pleasant using Thai fish sauce, and I prefer the Tiparos brand.  It is also a very quick dish to prepare and make.

Doctor's Consultation

Living with cancer

So you have just found out you have “cancer”. What can you do? The first thing is to sit down and take stock of your circumstances. All of us know that that piece of string called “life” eventually comes to an end, but we don’t know when. The only difference with you, is that your doctor has actually told you when your piece of “life” string is due to run out.

 SNAP SHOTS

Pro photographer demands danger money

Nobody would ever put photography in the list of dangerous pastimes, but let me tell you, I have had some dangers to overcome to get the image the client wanted. I have been called upon to do some dangerous photography. No, not in a tiger’s den, but an aerial shot taken from a helicopter.

Classical Connections

Licorice Sticks

 

The complex mechanism on a modern clarinet (Photo: Bob McEvoy).

“To what?” I suppose you could justifiably enquire. The expression is old jazz slang for a clarinet because of course, clarinets are usually black. I’ve sometimes heard orchestral players use the term but only when they’re joking, drunk or both. When I was a music student in London, I used to share a flat with a clarinetist. Unlike me, he was an extremely diligent student and practised his clarinet for hours every day.

  Wine World

Classic Reds

If you mention the name “Bordeaux” to wine lovers, don’t be surprised if their eyes glaze over and their salivary glands get to work like those of Pavlov’s slobbering dogs. Because you see, for wine enthusiasts Bordeaux is rather special. Any red wine from the Bordeaux region used to be called “claret” in Britain, regardless of its origin or pedigree. The British have used this word for the last three hundred years yet today it’s unknown in France. It’s always pronounced “cla-rett” and never, as some nitwit once told me, “cla-ray”

Heart to Heart  

Heart to Heart - APRIL 3 - APRIL 16, 2020

Dear Hillary,

I have no problems living here in Thailand. I can get as many ‘film stars’ as I want, who think I’m just the greatest. They don’t cost me much money - a lot less than a wife would ever cost back home. I get someone different every night I want. The beer is cheap and if you choose the bar which has a pig on a spit, you get free food as well. Just how good is that? It amazes me just how some of these losers can find life so difficult over here. It’s Paradise!

Book Review

Public Enemies

  

A quick glance through the Author’s Note at the beginning of this book quickly shows that the title of the book Public Enemies (ISBN 978-0-141-04258-9, Penguin Books, 2005) is erroneous. Despite the fact that the book does deal with some fairly well-known names in the American gangster era, such as Ma Barker, Bonnie and Clyde and John Dillinger, author Bryan Burrough states clearly,

NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover takes a new selfie before record climb

 

NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover recently set a record for the steepest terrain it’s ever climbed, cresting the “Greenheugh Pediment,” a broad sheet of rock that sits atop a hill. And before doing that, the rover took a selfie, capturing the scene just below Greenheugh.
