Holiday in Italy – Pompeii

Some years ago, we made an organized tour to Sorrento, Italy. Why Sorrento? We knew that it was a beautiful small town. In 2016 its population was about 16609 inhabitants. Sorrento offered a nice way to make short excursions on one’s own to the nearby places like Capri, Vesuvius and Pompeii. We also visited Naples, but I did not shoot many photos from there and that is why I am not going to post any posts from there.

Although it has passed many years since our visit, it is still in our memory. Capri is an island, where You could visit once in the life time. Same words are valid also for Vesuvius and Pompeii. I could visit Pompeii once more, because I love history and it was full of awesome history.

Welcome to walk with us thru my photos in these three

What Each Character Of ‘Friends’ Would Earn In 2019 Betches — AllAbout


There are few things in life considered timeless, among them are The Beatles, red lipstick, and, of course, Friends. Seriously, that show kept me alive during my junior semester abroad in a city that’s tied for least things to do and worst food. If you’re ever in Spain, be sure to not visit to Salamanca.

A BUTCHER…. VEGAN ?


https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-47

After about 15 years working in the meat industry, butcher Brian Kavanagh found he was concealing a secret.

 

Much of his adult life had been spent shaping, slicing and trimming animal products by the slab without a qualm – a career that began when he was just 16 in a small family-run butcher in Burnside, South Lanarkshire.

But as he stood silent behind the meat counter in Morrisons supermarket, aged 33, Brian couldn’t quite find the words to tell colleagues he had become vegan.

“I kept it to myself,” he said. “I didn’t tell anyone because I was worried about them making jokes. Before I just looked at it as a piece of meat going on a dinner plate but then you see it as an animal and not just a steak.

“I was a bit depressed, it just didn’t feel good, so I had to leave.”

Brian said becoming a butcher was the first job he picked at the Job Centre as a teenager – and it was “just something to keep my dad quiet”.

As an adult, he said eating meat such as steak or chicken was routine and he would often buy meat from work for convenience.

 

Vegan butcher

He first considered giving up animal products when his wife Rebecca became vegan, but it was the animal welfare documentary Earthlings, narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, that finally pushed him to make the change.

The award-winning film, directed by Shaun Monson, contains footage of the conditions inside factory farms. Now Brian, his wife and his two children, age nine and six, stick to a plant-based diet.

“Me and the kids would have separate meals from my wife,” he said. “Now it’s so much easier doing it together.”

Brian, who is now 36, gave in his notice to Morrisons and was eventually hired at the Glasgow base of Sgaia’s Vegan Meats, founded by Hilary Masin and Alberto Casotto.

“I was worried my background and my story might put them off, and they wouldn’t want someone who was a meat butcher for 15 years,” he said.

“But they were really excited about it and wanted me just as much as I wanted to work there.”

He now calls himself a vegan butcher.

By blending a combination of soy, gluten and spices, Sgaia’s creates a number of vegan products which they call ‘mheats’ – from staples like streaky bacon and burgers to more specialised foods such as charcuterie.

The firm supplies a number of restaurants and kitchens in Glasgow – including the pop-up Durty Vegan Burger Club.

The job transition was a worry for Brian but quickly soon after joining he helped to launch one of its most popular products – the vegan lorne sausage.

He said: “Making sausages was a big part of being a butcher. Once I saw how the [vegan] base was made I thought it would be interesting to try to play about with that and create a lorne sausage.

“All the feedback has been really good. We took it to a festival and some people were coming back two or three times.”

Recent years have seen a large rise in small food manufacturers marketing their products as a new form of meat, despite resistance around the world.

In the US, last week, the governor of South Dakota signed legislation that required “fake meat” products to be appropriately labelled as it “misled” consumers.

It came after the US Cattlemen’s Association lodged a petition calling for an official definition of “beef” and “meat” in 2018.

France has also banned labelling vegan or vegetarian products as a meat item to avoid confusion.

But regardless of labels, Brian claimed his own lifestyle changes have brought him nothing but happiness.

He said: “My skin was the first thing I noticed. I always had spots until I was 30, but my skin became a lot clearer. I feel clearer in the mind too.

“It’s that psychological thing – you eat something healthy, you feel good.”

So , okay, I’m an island girl.

I was taken aback when a co-worker asked me where I was born
  I answered the Philippines, of course
 then he said, ” I mean, on what island .?????” I thought for a minute before replying
.Uhm
 Luzon Island ???

I  told him I’d  always thought of my birthplace  as a country and not an island   ( if that makes sense). Well, the Philippines is comprised of 7, 641 islands ( or 7, 107  at  high tide, ha ha ) , and though I find  his question  a bit strange, I have to admit it   makes  sense
  After all, the former name of the Philippines was  Las Islas Filipinas ( as a Spanish colony.. .. islas means islands ) , Philippine Islands ( as  American colony) , Commonwealth of the Philippines, ( still American colony) , then Republic of the Philippines ( after independence)

Cottage Bakery & Cafe – Pembina Highway


Dining with Donald

Every so often I run across a place, and wonder to myself, how did I miss this place for so long. Cottage Bakery on Pembina Highway is one such place. I lived just off Pembina and McGillivray for the best part of nine years. I was about four blocks from Cottage Bakery and yet somehow never managed to visit. In the end, my first visit came about 15 years after I left the area, because I needed change for the bus. I simply bought a coffee to go. However, that first visit was enough to convince me that I wanted and needed to return.

Alexa Amazon


Ce jour, nous avons dĂ©cidĂ© de tester un produit : Le “smartspeaker” (dit en français : L’assistant intelligent ).

Pour ce, nous avons reçu le “smartspeaker” de celui d’Amazon : Alexa. ( Alexa Echo Dot 2e GĂ©nĂ©ration)

Alexa Amazon Echo Dot

Alexa Amazon Echo Dot

Pour ĂȘtre franc, outre les usages partiels et rapides auprĂšs des entreprises et groupes qui nous avaient montrĂ©s Ă  l’Ă©poque ce produit,   nous n’avions pas eu l’occasion de le tester longtemps et d’une maniĂšre plus profonde.

Ce fut une vĂ©ritable joie et excitation que de paramĂ©trer ce petit joujou, qui du premier abord pourrait nous paraĂźtre comme “gadget ” mais au final, nous nous y habituons et il devient partie intĂ©grante du paysage de nos bureaux ( et / ou de nos maisons).

Il a fallu choisir entre la langue anglaise et française ( eh oui…Nous pouvons choisir la langue, cependant, ce qui en dĂ©coule est important:

=> Si nous optons pour le FR, nous serons connectĂ©s directement sur le “amazon shop” de france. Cad nous aurons tous les mĂ©dias, sites parlant français. Exit , les mĂ©dias autres que Français cad ceux des US et UK, russie, inde, arabes , hĂ©breux … bref toutes les langues du monde ( A la radio, nous sommes plus que polyglottes et plus de 15 langues cohabitent puisque nous diffusons mondialement et que nous ne sommes pas focalisĂ©s sur la France ou l’europe seulement).

Donc, il a fallu paramĂ©trer… Le français fut choisi in fine, Ă©tant donnĂ© que nous sommes Ă  PARIS  ( attention, nous parlons du Test effectuĂ© en français, cependant, nos diffĂ©rents “smartspeakers” dans nos studios , sont paramĂ©trĂ©s dans diverses langues. Selon la team / le pĂŽle en charge ( Nos Ă©quipes sont organisĂ©es par “continent + langue” )

Comme vous verrez sur cette vidĂ©o, en saluant Alexa, il a fallu la calmer et l’arrĂȘter 🙂  puisque la machine Ă©tait paramĂ©trĂ©e pour nous annoncer les principaux Ă©vĂšnements de la journĂ©e, rien qu’en la saluant ( “bonjour” ) : Donc ceci est Ă  revoir

C’est la faute de notre Ă©quipe qui a voulu s’amuser. Cependant, en tant normal, Alexa rĂ©pond “Bonjour + le nom de la personne, qu’elle reconnait par la voix ).

La machine est personnalisable.

 

 

En fait, cet outil est interessant Ă  divers niveaux :

Outre le fait qu’Alexa  nous lance , les radios ( dont la nĂŽtre RadioSatellite) , nous avons pu lui demander de rajouter sur notre calendrier / agenda, divers Ă©vĂšnements.

Vocalement, nous lui demandons de rajouter” Alexa, rajoute sur la TO DO LIST, mon rendez vous demain Ă  16h00 Ă  Madame Dupond Ă  l’adresse XX Ă  Londres ou Ă  New York ou Paris

Ce rendez vous est rajoutĂ© immĂ©diatement sur un calendrier dĂ©jĂ  crĂ©Ă© aussi bien,  sur notre smartphone  que sur la machine (  Application qu’on a dĂ©jĂ  installĂ©, aussi, sur nos smartphones) .

alexa smartspeaker amazon

alexa smartspeaker amazon

Ne pas oublier que les “smartspeakers” fonctionnent en harmonie avec les “smartphones” ( ou tablettes) notamment lors du paramĂ©trage du dĂ©marrage.

Il suffit de lui demander le matin ” Alexa, il y a quoi sur ma TO DO LIST pour aujourd’hui?  ” et voilĂ …Alexa nous rappelle tout et nous n’avons plus aucun pretexte de louper une rĂ©union ou rendez-vous.

Nous pouvons supprimer “vocalement” aussi un rendez vous. Il sera supprimé  (aussi ) du calendrier existant sur notre smartphone.

Pour la France, nous avons pu dĂ©couvrir un calendrier ( c’est obligĂ©, il faut qu’il y ait un calendrier en SKILL pour le rapprocher avec la machine Alexa.)  :

Le calendrier   https://www.any.do/

any.do

any.do

 

En tout cas, c’est l’une des fonctions … Il existe des milliers de Skills ( Une sKILL c’est l’Ă©quivalent des applications pour smartphones). Skills Ă  activer sur Alexa. ( Contrairement aux apps des smartphones,  sur ces machines, nous n’installons pas de Skill…Pas de tĂ©lĂ©chargment…c’est juste l’activation ou la dĂ©sactivation => DĂ©sactivation  par dĂ©faut )

Pour revenir à Alexa  amazon:

C’est un vrai assistant personnel , cet outil. La qualitĂ© du son est plus que correcte. MĂȘme que nous pouvons connecter Alexa Ă  des enceintes  BlueTooth si l’on veut ( ce n’est pas obligĂ© mais c’est une option en plus Ă  notre disposition ).

Pour notre part, il nous sert pour l’instant de calendrier, de moteur de recherche vocal pour nous trouver un bon restaurant tous les midis, les itinĂ©raires, les grĂšves et pannes de transports en commun ou routiers. Evidemment pour Ă©couter les flash infos ou les radios etc..

Pour rĂ©sumer, Alexa est utile. Ce n’est pas “uniquement” un gadget Ă  offrir Ă  sa famille. C’est aussi un outil de travail pour une meilleure productivitĂ© et un calendrier  vocal / Ă©crit que les Ă©quipes peuvent mettre en commun pour le suivi des journĂ©es, rendez vous et TO DO LISTS

CLIFF RICHARDS : THE artist

He started life as Harry Webb and spent some of his childhood years in India.
