Round the world in 3.7 years

Following on with the cooking theme, discovered this fab blog by Sarah - What's Cooking in your World?

Her goal? Prepare 1, possibly 2 meals per week from a different country, until she's worked her way through all the World's countries in alphabetical order.

Nice one! When the time comes, hope you can do something with ..... Aubergine!

What a (sporting) week!

Italy and France out of the Soccer World Cup, New Zealand undefeated and wait for it... Isner beat Mahut 70-68. It's not a basketball match but tennis at Wimbeldon. 11 hours on court.

In the Australia's Cup
Gillard: 1 Rudd: 0

Julia Gillard is Australia's first woman Prime Minister and good for her! Rudd and Swan what arrogance! Wayne you gotta go too.

... and Joe, eat your heart out. Julia's a lot prettier than you.

Been watching too much TV. The worst thing about this show... putting on too much weight! Fellow aficionados, might recognise this song...

Is there a bit of LGG in there?

What the f????

(whinge with a religious bent)

I've been hiding under a rock all these years. Centuries some might say. I've just discovered that the secularist have had a field day while I was under that rock.

It's no longer correct to use the abbreviation BC (Before Christ) nor AD (Anno Domini - translated as in the Year of our Lord). It's now BCE (Before the Common Era) or CE (Common Era). It matters not if 10 BC = 10 BCE or 2010 AD = 2010 CE.

Wikipedia said it better than I ever could...

"...the use of BCE/CE shows sensitivity to those who use the same year numbering system as the one that originated with and is currently used by Christians, but who are not themselves Christian."
