Monika decided to check out the snow to see what all the fuss was about.
The dinner party went well and Cate gave me a high marking. In fact a 10 out of 10 – but she is a generous marker.
For the record I made Honey Roasted Chicken (my own recipe) and a Turkish Potato dish with Turkish Spices, Olives and other stuff. Dessert was an Esterhazy Torte which I did not make.
Today is a holiday (Immaculate Conception) but as I am not religious I am doing extra housework. Cate is not at work but all public holidays mean for her is that she works at home.
But – many of the shops are open. Apparently Immaculate Conception does not filter down to retail land – except at Bauhaus where I went to buy some firewood - but was greeted with closed doors. Then I remembered that Jesus was a Carpenter and it all became clear.
Julian was due to swing by to do all the heavy lifting. I buy the wood from Bauhaus and take it home and he schlepps it up to the apartment – so we had to postpone that.
So that I don’t completely clog up my Blog with photos I am starting to load them into my Picasa album. If you have the urge you can get to this by clicking on the Picasa button on the side menu.
The big news today is that the Egyptians have accused Mossad of training sharks to kill tourists. The Governor of South Sinai has said
"What is being said about the Mossad throwing the deadly shark [in the sea] to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of the question, but it needs time to confirm," he is reported to have said.
I reckon it’s Julian Assange in a shark suit.
Borowitz is brilliant today and is worth a look.
