Bloody good eggs

I am so happy,  apparently eggs have been declared healthy or if not the posterchild for healthy at least good enough to be ate more than three times a week.

I love eggs – boiled, broiled, poached, fried, on little sticks, on my chips, on my rice, looooove it. (Although not as much as I love yoghurt).

People have been limiting themselves to three eggs a week, I say people and not we simply because I eat triple that in half a month, (the other half is spent eating yoghurt).

Now new research from the university of Surrey has come to light discrediting the earlier research that chained people to only three eegs a week because of their apparent high content of saturated fats.

So, I’m prclaiming today Egg Day – go home and eat an egg, lick it, chomp in to it, slurp it, anyway you want.

Here’s a suggestion:

Huevos rancheros You could get purist about this and do it with chorizo and panache, or do it like scrambled eggs – only add thyme and adobo paste, scramble them and serve with salsa over the top

La Saraghina – life in 2009

Yep, this is a little weird but is only on here because I love the Saraghina scene from Fellini’s 8 1/2 and want to share it with the world.

And just to keep the topic current this is also  one of my New Year resolutions – to bring more of Fellini’s beautiful film into my life (maybe not this exact sequence) there’s no reason why day to day life can’t be more cinematic.

Hehe, French and Saunders also do a fantastic skit of this.

I am  so happy, finally the next couple of chapters of my novel have been written out and a few tasters are online.

I hope you all enjoy it and please let me know what you think, so i can use the friendly criticism.

My only aim of the year is to finish my novel, and I will I promise, no more dwindling or getting stalled by life.

So many New Years resolutions but I am too tired to write any more so until tomorrow.

In Love with a DSLR

I am totally in love with my new digtal SLR camera
It did take an agonising 24 hours to decide whether I really wanted a DSLR for my birthday.
For those who don’t know SLR stands for single-lens reflex and has interchangeable lenses aka a real photographer’s camera.
Once you hold one in your hands it will haunt your dreams and I had to have it and also how could I say no to Jimmy Olsen’s own tool of choice!
So, welcome Nikon D40 to my life.

The beginning of so many more beginnings…

It’s a little confusing as to what I am meant to be talking about in my blog.

I have a lot to say, so much that I think about, thoughts, opinions and discussions I wish to have, the list is so endless but it has to be thought clearly and written concisely, I dont want to confuse my current and future readers.

So, in the upcoming weeks I will be talking about my position and analysis on the US elections, the current conundrum for journalists and news rooms, my thoughts on the transformation of papers, the decaying state of Russia, my love for Frasier, getting to grips with living in strange and often lonely new places and anything else that catches my eyes.

Also, I am just about to upload my currently unfinished but progressing book, see what you think of it, I don’t exactly have writer’s block but rather I am a bit weary as to whether it’s any good. After all there is no point in releasing something in to te world unless it will actually make a difference. It is a work in progress (very slow progress). Still, your thoughts are very much welcome.Don’t worry there is not too much to it as yet so it won’t be too much of a long read.

So keep tuning in for something new and ever so exciting tomorrow, maybe the next day, as I do have to prepare for my driving exam…
