Chicken Soup

Oh, I knew about Jim’s cooking abilities and supposedly seeing what no one else could see quite as perfectly as me regarding his culinary skills when I married him.  It’s almost like that effect when you take that first bite of delicious pizza hot from the oven. His cooking has always had that  affect on me in the way that he always got on with his baked goods… if you know what I mean.  Yesterday he made his delicious chicken soup with clear consommé broth. Where I come from all we do with chicken is fry the bird. Mmm… homemade … Continue reading Chicken Soup

Winter Cosmos

Winter here in Swansea brings a new Night sky. I see everything different; everything is still new.  Every element used in the chemistry of life was originally synthesized in stars that exhausted their hydrogen fuel and began fusing the heavens.  I think as ancient stars died, they would cast off large clouds of heavy elements.  That they ultimately formed into the gas and dust clouds forming the next generation of solar systems.  All of the nitrogen, carbon, oxygen and iron used by life was present in primordial clouds that formed the solar system.  Carl Sagan’s quote was a poetic way … Continue reading Winter Cosmos

Happy Thanksgiving 

Making our ideals, desires, fears, memories; living the history. May it’s just my view looking out of window from an American girl from Texas, discovering Swansea.

It’s a day about be grateful and about spending that time together with friends and family; the people you love.  Being thankful is about the way you always find the path in the particular universe with the people you care for and the love is … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving

Bonfire Night

We went to the Bonfire Night at King Arthur’s Pub in the Gower for dinner. Dinner was delicious and the place was very crowded. Jim ordered shrimp starters to share and turbot  for the main. Absolutely delicious!  We shared our table with another family and after talking with them, there were more fireworks going off than I’ve ever seen before; if you know what I mean. Interesting conversation to say the least.  Anyway on the way, Jim drove so I could see the Bonfires as we passsed one after another off Swansea Bay. They were randomly spread across the beaches … Continue reading Bonfire Night
