Welcome to all faithful (and unfaithful!) readers. I am relentlessly trying to conquer the Internet with my pen (eee... keyboard) and hopefully bring you a few laughs in the process. I write on whatever takes my fancy, mostly about food, books and ridiculous social behaviors. I'm not much of a salesman so my lenses are mostly for reading, not for shopping. This leaves me starving, but adds to their quality. Subjects you'll NEVER catch me writing about include Lady Gaga, celebrities doing anything and how much I love Christ because I don't (and here, dear Christians, you have a chance of showing your famous tolerance off by not burning me at the stake). Enjoy and if you like it, come back for more!

    No Junk Mail, Please

    11 months ago

    I hate junk mail. I don't want it, I don't need it, I NEVER buy anything advertised. Yet, it still ends up in my mailbox. Junk mail levels are reaching epic proportions. Each year, millions of trees are cut down to print it and yet surveys say that...

    Berries from around the world

    11 months ago

    It starts with strawberries and continues throughout the whole summer. Berry season. You can pick them from your garden or out in the wild - if you're lucky enough to live near somewhere where they grow. I grew up mainly with bilberries and wild...

    Porto zoo - Zoo da Maia

    11 months ago

    If you are an unsuspecting tourist in Porto, Portugal, the zoo won't be an obvious place you'll be pointed to. Everybody will try to sign you up for one of innumerable Douro cruises, or wine cellar trips, and if you ask in the tourist office, all...

    10 things I hate about the Internet

    4 years ago

    It provides hours and hours of fun. It gives you an answer to every question in 0.08 seconds average. It lets you have your say, whatever the subject. It connects, promotes, enlightens. Gosh, the Internet is great. But it also gives you moments when...

    The Good Soldier Svejk

    11 months ago

    I'm not sure whether I should start writing a review before I've actually finished reading the book. Yet, halfway through, I have a funny feeling that if you've read a 100 or so pages of 'The Good Soldier Svejk', you've read it all. Don't get me...

    Don't Go to Cliffs of Moher

    11 months ago

    I did some travelling over the weekend. One of the places on my itinerary was the famous Cliffs of Moher, probably the most famous touristic gathering point in the west of Ireland. At 214 m, they are the highest cliffs on the whole island and the...
