Does this help?

Challenge this

My claim is very simple. You cannot possibly understand "One hundred years of solitude" (Cien Años de Soledad) unless:
a) you read it in Spanish
b) you are Latin American (or, maybe, have lived in Latin America for a reasonable number of years... maybe)

Yes, I completely agree with myself (?)

The Delacroix of French cuisine is back

Rumour has it (yes, I believe rumour more than my own eyes) that M. Al-Ghazi is back in town. The People are revolting in demand of Fondue au Chocolat, or, as the French say, "chocolate fondue". Join me in this gastronomic crusade and let's get it done before winter is over... allons enfants de la patrieeee le jour de gloire est arrivé...

(Thanks Leah for the inspiration)

Exotic vegetable seed supplier

G'day! Anne was wondering where to find Nuesslisalat seed in Australia and I thought it might be useful to disseminate the answer to all.
The place to look is in the catalogue from New Gippsland Seeds and Bulbs.

Anne, the Nuesslisalat is:
CORN SALAD 350 s/g (Lambs Lettuce) (Valerianella locusta). Grow like Lettuce. Regular sowings required for constant cropping. Unsuitable for hot weather, even in cool districts.
1421 - Machelong Traditional Dutch Corn Salad with large round green leaves. Use in salads or cooked. Pkt: 200 seeds: $3.50 25g: $13.30.
