In the mean time, thanks for visiting...

For this recipe you need:
Pizza Dough: Make it yourself (lots of recipes on the net) here is an example. If you don't like the mess there are in the supermarket prepared ones refrigerated. Olive oil to spread around a baking form lightly, only if you want your pizza to stay somewhat soft. Extra tip: Spread also some sea salt at the bottom of that form.
* Tomato sauce lightly seasoned with fried shallot, cardamom and cumin for a distinctive taste.
* Fresh Emmenthal cheese, shredded.
* Mushrooms, sliced, baked in olive oil, with some shallot, lots of garlic, black pepper and oregano. Season to your liking.
* Fresh basil leaves, artichoke hearts, good quality sliced ham & anchovies, fresh or canned.
* Black olives (try the best quality you can get, un-pit them if you must)
while can crunch away the whole lot!
One last note: better put some garlic as well is the tomato sauce too so your partner wont notice your sharp garlic smell afterwards ! ;)

Anticipation (for the little chair in front) reminding the many accidents models have lately...and because little chairs just might have feelings too...

Originally uploaded by Cl☼s ... des dunes ! à l'oeuvre de Soeur Emmanuelle ...
This picture and comment was posted by Cl☼s ... des dunes ! on Flickr and being Belgian I was at first* a bit ashamed I never heard of her...She died October 20, 2008 at the age of 99. I never understood what really drives these people so I here's a closer look...
*Correction: I did know her and even saw this on the news, I guess working on the computer and watching TV simultaneously does weird things with your memory...
official site (she really deserves a better one, bad links and stuff)
youtube (her last interview, and other video's: Yalla! pas de stop!)
de morgen (newspaper in Dutch, about the funeral, good picture)
the guardian (review on her memoirs)
la provence (reportage on her funeral, in French)
Courageous, righteous woman, the kind the Church really needs I guess, and It should permit them to marry because : "L'Union fait la Force"! Also, now that I see again that drive it's truly amazing that these kind of persons also always tend to live this long (and in good shape!)
The Power of Belief is a strong medicine...

Looking up the original from good old Neil on YouTube I've found some surprises: Here's how it should be played (not easy!)
And here how it shouldn't:

Finally I found out that Vista has an easy-to-use Screen shot tool, that is situated under Accessories and with the very promising name Sniping Tool. And it's a snitch, the only thing you have to do is of course to make sure that the screen you want to shoot is already open BEFORE you activate this little program. Much is said about Vista, and yes it is slower than XP but it's these features and the look (not the feel) that makes Vista kinda nice to work with.
(to be continued...Time, Time, Time...)
