Chilling Out with Red Wine at Sky Cafe


Nothing is real.  And there is nothing to get hung about.  A supply of Pinot Noir forever.

From Me in Budapest to You



So I told you that the River Danube is blue.  Well, it is also green at certain part of the day.  I don't think that any Classical Music Composer has ever written about the Danube being green.  Maybe because green is associated with water pollution.   And LSD was not yet discovered.

Budapest, Hungary’s capital, is bisected by the River Danube, which separates the flat Buda and the hilly Pest.  Or is it the other way around.  Doesn't matter.  This was shot at the top of Fisherman's Bastion.  Rose and I have been here a couple of times and it never disappoints.  The scenic image to me is truly the old-world.  

Hope your day is going well.

The Last Fat Meal


One final fat alert.

This was the last batch of slices of pork belly that I made.  Cooked in its own fat and garnished with Balela salad.  I believe those are Garbanzo beans.  Some herbs.  Red chili peppers.  Littah bit of dis and lil bit of dat.  Rose is coming home today.  Yay.  I miss her and her cooking.  No more unhealthy meal.

Tomato Soup 2.0



This was an utter failure.  The Asparagus and the Spinach did not go well with the Tomato Soup.  But it makes for a great photo op.

Hope your day is going well.

The Ghost of Bishop Jebb


The photo is a statue of Bishop John Jebb found in the church of St Mary's Cathedral in Limerick, Ireland.  Not sure if this is still a Protestant church.  It may well be.  Though I doubt it.  After the much hated Oliver Cromwell captured Limerick, the church became a stable for the parliamentary army.  The present state of the church is sad.  It needs a lot of repair work but money is scarce.  It is very depressing.  Even the church staff we talked to looked depressed.   I gave her some money for the church.  She was pleasantly surprised.  

As for Bishop Jebb, not much is written about him.  He was made bishop of Limerick in 1882.  I imagined that he probably liked to shoot pool.
