I thought that it’s maybe a good idea to show you a bit of my flower collection in a slideshow. This is part 1. Have fun 🙂

Riddle of the day

What is 5.83 inches tall, yellow with a white and blue stripe on the side and is nicknamed as the Bugs Funny Mac Crasher?

I’m reading Build Your Own Wicked WordPress Themes from Sitepoint written by Allan Cole, Raena Jackson Armitage, Brandon R. Jones and Jeffrey Way. It’s quite interesting indeed.

Open Air Opera

Exceptional evening yesterday evening @ Valerie & Peter. They organised a private opera  in their own garden. The performers were at their best. Thanks Valerie & Peter. Here are some pics of the evening. They are not that sharp (I did what I could) 🙂

Full Moonlight

Can anybody guess at what time of the evening this photograph has been taken? If you answered earlier than 11:00 pm, you are all wrong. Actually, this has been taken at 30 minutes before midnight. There is no tricks, no photoshop, just use the right settings on your SLR to get this result: 70mm, f/2.8, 15s, ISO 500 and voilà!

Bonne nouvelle, la page Plastics de mon portfolio est à jour

I was thinking about our five senses but there is one which brought me to think about it deeper. Can anybody guess which one it is?… I won’t let you guess any longer. I’m talking about the taste. What’s so special about it? Well, everybody knows the four  flavours  of the taste: sweet, salty, sour and bitter. But there is a fifth one called umami. What a weird name would you say! I do agree with you. It sounds japanese to me. And unfortunately for you it’s japanese. It’s exactely discovered by a japanese scientist named Kikunae Ikeda who boiled some seaweed (kombu)and noticed that the taste of it was distinct from sweet, sour, bitter and salty and named it umami. And it means ‘pleasant savory taste’. So if you want to try this new flavour you can find it in soy saus, kombu seaweed, shrimps, cabbage, shellfish, mushrooms, green tea…
