Cubos de azeite com ervas aromáticas

Adoro condimentar as refeições com ervas aromáticas.
Como tenho a o privilégio de cultivar as minhas no quintal, acabo por utilizá-las todo o ano sobre diversas formas: frescas, secas, congeladas.
Partilho convosco uma forma de conservação das mesmas.
Na altura de colheita, coloco as covetes de gêlo com azeite e as ervas pretendidas (ex: alecrim, orégãos). Recomendo que nessa altura registem na tampa com uma caneta de acetato o que guardaram e quando colocaram, para não guardar eternamente no congelador.
Depois na hora de utilizar, em vez de colocar gordura para o preparado que está a cozinhar, coloca estes cubos na porção necessária.

China Checkmating U. S. citizens in the Final Steps to the New World Order, Seeks Disarmament

                                      photo:  ibtimes.com

In piecing together world events and the players, the following discussion of China's role in bringing about the final moves of today's global chess game makes good sense.  If one questions the complete ineptitude, corruption, and/or unwillingness of so-called "elected" leaders in the political realm to address today's issues, one needs to look no further than your local supermarket...which supplies you with everything from needles to bananas:  Walmart.

DATA sheet. I never created an acct to comment on Reddit but I do read you there. Although nobody is completely in control of this out of control world, every month the NSA, ALEC, Rand & other Corporations would report on why CHINA actually has the most power to induce biological events in order to assume more control over croplands in Africa, Central Asia & North America.
COLIN, your right. China’s small group of top leaders are less restricted to launch large scale events. In 2008 it cost Congressional candidates about 6 million each to win an election. High campaign costs are worth it because Congressional pay is pocket change compared to the big bucks deposited off shore by special interests. The largest campaign contributions on record come from China’s leaders in conjunction with multi-national corporations who has helped elect most US officials. China’s corporate kick backs are much more valuable to US Senators than their salary. In the past the British Empire once conquered and profitably colonized many countries by buying their leaders first. Now Xi Jinping is using the same formula to by US & Russian leaders.
China’s leader Xi Jinping has extracted vast economic gains from cheap labor & raw materials. However all records indicate that his greatest power play, currently in action on all world markets, will come from China taking control of the World’s Reserve Currency. The Peoples Republic combined with North Korea has the largest standing army on Earth.
Today, Forbes list of top corporations are small compared to the largest privately held companies. At the very top is Saudi Aramco which is worth 20 times the amount of the highest publicly offered company. Currently valued at 19 times greater than Apple, the P.R.C. has over 11 Trillion dollars in stock & bond holdings. Domestically the PRC has control over the publicly offered shares of CNPC, ICBC & China Mobile. The PRC also has a large interest in Walmart’s manufacturing division.
PRC leaders Xi Jinping & Zhou Xiaochuan are also prime share holders in IBM, Apple & HSBC. Beyond Saudi Aramco, the world’s other largest private companies are Pemex, Venezuela Petroleos, Kuwait Petronas & Sonatrach. The PRC has investments in each in return for direct oil supplies. Even the gigantic wealth of Iran National oil is connected by a PRC shipping deal. Globally “China.Inc.” is the empire where the sun never sets. In the past few years China has acquired an enormous gold reserve. The the PRC holds approximately 3 trillion of the U.S. debt. Enough to give the PRC the power to pull the purse strings of Congress. Both the Republican and the Democratic political parties are registered corporations.
Now in unison with Carlos Slim, Xi Jinping has direct control over the MexAmreiCAN technology corridor. 94% of all weapons being invented and distributed to worldwide military forces (even when they are at war with each other) come from the North American military-industrial complex. The Pentagon has central command; however, almost all weapons manufacturing is done by private contractors. Chemical, cyber & biologic systems are manufactured in Mexico & Canada. China, Canada & the USA are deeply interconnected by the IMF. The US dollar is still The World Reserve Currency but that could shift to China quickly.
Money is a printed and minted product. From ancient Sumeria to Rome, using currency for trade has been so successful that money itself was often considered more valuable than the items it was supposed to represent. As long as you control the world’s most successful form of exchange you can control a military. Few soldiers remain at post for long without pay. Therefore the PRC has invested heavily in the USA to have leverage over international military powers and large private armies like “Blackhawk” in Iran. Last month Obama proceeded with the transition of control over the Internet to the PRC. The world wide web, cyber banking & Satellite system are the invisible economic network firmly controlling $ exchange with all countries. The PRC benefits when they can afford to buy our bond funds. Clearly Xi Jinping is calling the shots with both Putin & Obama. Because he stays in the shadows of China, Xi Jinping does not have to deal with voters.
Since the PRC is the largest silent shareholder in the World Bank, Xi Jinping can use his financial control over allied forces to peacefully avoid warfare. However will he need an international distraction to depopulate North American citizens who are too difficult to sustain ??
A new Global Currency is already printed and ready for distribution. Even Capitol Hill is pushing limits to break the US dollars value. The outstanding US debt to the PRC is a house of cards that threatens the World Bank. Yesterday, Jinping called for consolidation. “There will be a new world order..” are the exact words echoed by Obama and every President before him back to Nixon. TV clips of former world leaders calling for the “New World Order” are easy to watch on YouTube. Google wants you to watch because New World Order programming is being openly marketed. We are also making great progress with RFDI micro-chips in every credit card. Over 2 million test subjects have received digital implants.
There is nothing secret about the NWO plan or Jinping’s call to collapse the US dollar and merge separate currencies into one International Monetary Fund. Rigged elections are a tiresome and expensive shell game for rulers. The NWO is the ultimate incorporation of everything under one umbrella administration. Taxes will increase because Xi Jinping knows the Chinese people will make no effort not stop him. But can he control the rest of the world’s people as easily as he does in China? Or will he need to enact a series of dramatic events including biowarfare to reduce world population? The full AGENDA 21 plan has been filed with the UN to enact world de-population. In Gastad the top 9 elite members of the Bilderburg Group voted to begin the Agenda 21 steps. A smaller population will be easier for the Illuminati to manage. The high energy rates of current worldwide consumption levels are having an impact on Atmospheric Jet Streams & Ocean acidification. Haliburton jet fuel additives that were supposed to assist with global cooling have had unexpected side effects. Haliburton manufactured fracking fluid adds to Methane escape & expanding the Southern hemisphere Ozone hole. Xi Jinping, Evelyn Rothschild, Buffet & the Bilderberg group population control plans are supposed to be completed by 2021, the USA must soon be hit by another “surprise” & financial cyber attack. Since Xi Jinping has the military capability to control 1/3 of the world’s population, he may use his Co-USA & Russian unified power to reduce the hardest to control portions of the global population. Over a 100 support documents and research papers on the bio-logic shift plan from major sources are avail. Interesting times ahead on the road to extinction.

Wet Dreams

At 29 years old I had never, up to this point had a wet dream, I have joked with my friends about it and most said they have had nocturnal emissions before, all but me. Most have said they don’t remember anything except waking up wet and sticky from cum.
I am single and jerk off at least a couple of times a day, but lately more nights than not, I have been having wet dreams. A few times I woke up as I was shooting my load, making me squirm and moan, One night I had fallen asleep with the light and TV on and about 2:30 AM I woke with a horny feeling, it was like something was pushing inside the slit of my penis, like massaging it, it felt fucking hot.
I was laying on my back and had already licked off the blanket and sheet, my breathing was a bit ragged as I was close to shooting, I opened my eyes and looked at my stiff penis and about jumped out of my bed. There were these tiny naked men things on my cock, they were like little fairies, one was fucking me with his little stiffie, and the others were around my shaft, some licking and others rubbing my hard cock.
I blinked my eyes a couple of times, and looked again, still saw the same thing.
What the fuck are you things? I said aloud.
They looked at me and were gone in a flash, they just vanished, all but one, he sort of rolled or fell off of the bed, I jumped up looking around, looking under the blankets and under the bed. I heard a noise behind the door, I saw one little fairy, he looked scared that I found him.
“Who or what are you?” I asked.
He just stood and looked a little scared, I reached down and scooped him up and laid back on the bed letting him stand on my chest.
“I won’t hurt you, where are the others?”
He just shrugged.
“Can you speak?”
I heard a little tiny voice but could not hear well enough to know what he said.
“What are you? Little wet dream fairies”
He shook his head yes, and walked down my chest to the head of my soft cock and pushed his whole arm into my piss slit rubbing it around in there bringing it to life, as it hardened the little guy rode it to its full stiffness, he moved up and rubbed his prick to a full raging hard on and plunged it into my slit and started fucking my cock.
I lay back and watched this little imp do his magic on my cock, the feeling was great, it was like being jacked off from the inside, my head went back to the pillows as I moaned.
I looked again as my jizz started jetting from my cock, the fairy was blasted into the air a few inches before landing on my ball sac next to my shaft, he grabbed on and started licking the cum from my stiff meat.
The little guy walked up my chest and over to my ear after he had his fill of my hot sticky jizz.
“This is what we eat, it is the only thing we eat or drink.” He said.
“So you are little cum guzzlers?”
“We visit men in the night and drink our meals when they shoot it out.” He replied.
“Where did the others go and why did you stay?”
“I bent my wing a little and could not get away as fast as I needed to, we rarely get seen, and most men sleep through our visits.” He explained.
“Are you hurt?”
“No, I can leave anytime, but you had already seen us and well, I was hungry so I stayed once you brought me up on your chest, besides, we are very horny.”
“Do you fuck each other too?”
“All we do is eat fuck and sleep, it is all we need, we mate with female fairies but that is just to keep us from dying off.”
“Can you bring the others back?” I asked.
“We travel together but I would have to go back to our home in the trees to get them, maybe tomorrow night.”
“Aww, I wanted to see them all again, they left so fast.”
“I’ll go see if they want to come back, I will tell them you are nice but if they don’t want to I will see about tomorrow night.” The imp said as he walked from my ear to my chest.
I looked to see that he had a little stiffie, he started jacking it again, it was just like a tiny man, and he looked so sexy jacking off near my left nipple. Within moments he started shooting his jizz in little spurts. He gave me a wave and was gone, he sort of flew and vanished.
Propped up on my pillow, I looked to see the cum he left behind, I lifted the moisture from my nipple with my finger tasting it, it was so sweet, like fresh honey and I wanted more.
I could not sleep and soon the sun was up, I showered and went to work but I could not concentrate on anything and came home “sick” after lunch. I went to my bed and looked for my little imp, I laid my head on my pillow and was asleep in no time due to the lack of sleep the night before.
I woke up with no signs of the tiny men, I didn’t want to miss them but needed to eat dinner and walked to a café a few doors down from my apartment. I was eating my food but my mind was not on the dinner, just then I looked by my water glass and saw my friend standing on the table, he gave me a wave and was gone.
“Waiter, I need to pay my bill.” I said frantically.
The waiter was fooling around at the next table, I tossed a twenty on the table and pointed to it as I dashed out the door and headed home, I was stripping my clothes off as I made it to my bedroom climbing into bed naked and laid there waiting, I looked around some but saw nothing out of the ordinary. I must had fallen asleep while waiting but heard something familiar in my ear.
“Wake up, we are here, feed us.” The tiny voice said.
I looked to see five of the fairies on my chest, one was fucking another, and his little tiny legs spread with his friend fucking his ass with the speed of a hummingbird.
One jumped over to my cock and pushed his arm into my cum slit and had me fully hard in seconds, he pushed his stiff prick in and started fucking my cock, two were on my loose ball sac, one sucking the others cock, it felt so good and took me just a minute or two to shoot my jizz all over my cock to my chin soaking some of the small men, they ran to the large amounts of jizz and started eating.
“I tasted your cum last night, it was very sweet, before you leave could you all jack off and cum in one place so I can feed from your jizz too?”
I could not tell one from the other but they seemed to get the drift of what I wanted, they formed a small ring and all of the rubbed their cocks until each had exploded shooting their honey jizz into a small puddle of nectar for me.
They stepped back as I scooped it up with my fingertip and sucked it into my mouth, I savored the flavor on my tongue as long as I could, it was incredible. Two of them were fucking again right on my chest, it was like watching a live sex show only a tiny version.
“I hope you come back often, and please wake me up if I am asleep, I would hate to miss out, your cum is very sweet, I wish I could have a glass full to drink.” I said softly.
They gave a wave and were gone, I wanted them to stay and play longer, but they had their bellies full of cum and would go home and sleep all day and hopefully come back tomorrow night.

Alone for the Holidays

Alone for the holidays
Being an only child, both parents deceased, the only family I have is one aunt and a handful of cousins up in Maine who invited me to come for Christmas, I dreaded the drive but surely did not want to think about the overcrowded airports, small seats and crying children.
I am 31 years old and work seems to be my life, climbing the ladder at work, kissing ass, but only when needed, I have a nice apartment in the city and drive a late model Audi hard top convertible.
I was about two hours into the drive along the highway, the snow was a blanket of white on the shoulders of the road, I started thinking about how alone I really am when the song “I’ll be home for Christmas” came on the radio, tears streamed from my eyes to the point that I had to pull over.
I sat in my car on the side of the highway crying, feeling so alone, I haven’t cried in years, but today there was no shortage of emotions. All of a sudden I heard tapping on my window, looking up to find a Sheriff Deputy standing there. Fuck, this is all I need I thought as I tapped the button to open the window.
“Are you okay?” the Sheriff asked.
“Um, yeah, I’m fine.”
“Well, I’ve seen fine and best that I can recall, this is not what fine looks like, may I see your license and registration?”
“I didn’t do anything wrong.” I said handing him the documents.
“ You are probably fine, this is just a bit odd, so I’ll check things out a little, that’s all.”
“ I’m sorry, I was letting the holidays get the better of me, being alone for every stinking holiday is getting old.”
“No girlfriend Steve?” he asked after looking at my license.
“No, I’m gay, and no boyfriend, I was driving to my aunt’s house in Maine and well, I don’t have my heart in it, they just keep asking the same questions about why am I not married yet and telling me that I am not getting any younger.”
“I see, yeah I kind of know that story too, well not me, I’m married, it’s my younger brother, he is in the same boat, gay and single, not lots of gayness in our county I guess, he just works and bakes, he loves to bake pies.”
“Nothing wrong with pies.” I said as I wiped my eyes.
“You know, you should come meet him, it might do you both good, He is at my house right now, my wife is fixing Christmas Eve dinner for this evening, and, well, you are invited to come eat with us.” The Deputy said patting my shoulder.
“Naw, I can’t intrude, besides you don’t even know me.” I protested.
“I am headed home now, my shift was over but saw you on the side of the road and wanted to make sure that you were okay, and I can see that you are, well, not so okay.”
“My aunt is expecting me and I….”
The Deputy cut me off. “Don’t make me take you into custody.” He said with a huge grin.
“I guess I could call my aunt and let her know that something came up, this is too weird, you bringing me to your house and all, and how do you know I’m not an ax murder?”
“I’m a pretty good judge of character but I’ll run you through the database just the same.”
The Deputy walked back to his cruiser and returned after a few minutes handing me my license and registration.
“You haven’t even had a traffic ticket, I’d say that was good enough, besides it will do you and my brother good, I just called my wife and told her we had company coming, the crying part is between us.”
“This is awfully nice of you Deputy, maybe it is what I need, I sure did not want to go to my aunts again.”
“If you are coming to my house for dinner, you should probably just call me Lonnie, follow me, if I lose you at a light, I’ll pull over and wait for you.”
I watched as he pulled his patrol car out onto the highway, his blue lights went off as he passed me, I followed him down the highway for a few miles before he pulled off at an exit, after a few more miles he turned down a long dirt road and in the distance I could see a two story house with some old farm equipment scattered out by the barn.
I got out and followed Lonnie up to the porch, kicking the snow off of my shoes before stepping inside, the aroma of Turkey hit me like a brick.
“Wow that smells amazing.”
“This is Steve, Steve my wife Karen, my brother Jordan, we call him Jordy, and that’s our dog woffie that is sniffing your crotch, let me go change and grab a shower, I’ll be back in a few, make yourself comfortable.” Pushing Woofie back on his way to the staircase.
“Can I get you something to drink Steve?” Karen asked.
“Sure, whatever everyone is having, I ‘m easy.”
Karen walked into the kitchen, Jordan gave me the once over, head to toe.
“My brother didn’t say how he happened to bring you to dinner, you don’t look like you just got out of the County Jail, what’s the story?” Jordan asked.
“Well, I was on the side of the road, your bother found me with stolen jewels and said he had to take me to jail or keep the jewels and bring me home to dinner, here I am.”
“You are gay, aren’t you?” Jordan asked in a bit of a snarky tone.
“Well, yes I am, most people don’t pick up on it but I guess your gaydar is in good form.”
“No, it’s not that, I heard Karen on the phone with my brother, he is a great guy but tries to fix me up when he thinks he can, once he brought some guy home for me to meet just because he had pink hair, turned out the guy was not even gay, had gotten drunk, his friends dyed his hair and dropped him off in the park, Lonnie held him till he sobered up and then brought him to meet me, he wants me to be happy so I can’t get mad at him.”
“Well, Lonnie seems like a nice guy and is looking out for you, it was probably my fault he brought me home, I was on the side of the road feeling pretty sorry for myself being alone and not really wanting to go to my aunt’s house for dinner but had no real reason not to and Lonnie stopped to see if I was okay and here I am.”
Karen returned with drinks. “Margaritas, nothing says Christmas eve like tequila I say.”
I snorted out a laugh, before taking a frozen drink.
“Go sit down and I’ll bring some cheese and crackers for a snack, dinner won’t be ready for another couple of hours, Jordi, take Steve into the living room and get him comfortable.”
I sat on the couch with Jordi sitting in a side chair nearby, he relaxed some and was less suspicious of me and why I was there. I sipped my margarita, the tart lime flavor and icy coldness was wonderful.
“Karen got one of those Margaritaville margarita makers a few months ago and has not been the same since, everything is an excuse to break it out and make a pitcher of frozen goodness as she calls it, I do have to admit they are really good.”
Lonnie came down after his shower and joined us.
“Looks like Karen has that machine out again, hey baby, do you have a drink for me too?” Lonnie called out.
Lonnie looked like any other person in the state after he changed clothes, most are farmers and live a hard life working long hours in hopes that nothing bad happens to the crops.
“I really appreciate you inviting me into your home, it is very nice of you.”
“Not a problem at all, I hope you enjoy it here, it’s nothing fancy but its home.”
Jordi rattled on some about the lack of gay men in the county and how he had left for a while but had moved back a few years ago.
Karen sat next to her husband after handing him a margarita too.
“Has Jordi told you that he is an award winning pie baker?” Karen asked.
“Oh, stop, I haven’t won any awards for my pies.” Jordi said as he blushed.
“Well, just the same, they are the best anyone in the county could make, he wants to open a pie and coffee shop in town.” She said while she nodded her head the whole time.
“So what kind of pies do you make Jordi?” I asked.
“He makes everything, lemon meringue, apple caramel crumb, berry, sweet potato, chocolate crème.” Karen said as Jordi cut her off.
“I think he was asking generally, not naming every pie I can make.” Jordi said.
“No, I was really wanting to hear all the kinds you make.” I replied with a huge grin.
Jordi reached over and fist bumped my knee.
Karen went back to telling me every kind of pie known to man that Jordi has made, I smiled at Jordi as he was a little embarrassed by her raving over them.
“Jordi made four pies for after dinner, you’ll get to try them and decide for yourself but I bet you will see that they are the best around.” Karen smiled as she patted her husband’s leg.
“Four pies? I am impressed, I haven’t had homemade pie but a couple of times in my life and those really sound good, if you could make a living doing something you love, it sure beats busting your hump every day working for someone else, like me.” I said.
“Lonnie, come help me in the kitchen for a minute, Jordi, get out of my chair and go sit by Steve” Karen said as she took her husband by the hand headed for the kitchen.
“Well, that was discreet.” Jordi said as he moved onto the couch sitting near me.
“You really made four pies?”
“Well, yeah, two pumpkin and a cherry and an apple, one of the pumpkin pies is one I made for a friend of Karen’s, she and Lonnie will be taking it over to him in a while.
We sipped the last of the margaritas about the time that Karen brought in a fresh pitcher of drinks filling our glasses before vanishing back into the kitchen and re appearing with the pumpkin pie.
“Jordi dear, we are going to take your pie over to Mike, keep our guest happy, we will be back in about an hour and then we will have dinner, everything is on low heat so there is no need to check on it.”
“Great, see you in a bit.” Jordi said as he slipped his arm behind my shoulder.
I turned and looked into Jordi’s face, he had kind looking blue eyes with a sweet smile, and he stood and took me by the hand.
“Would you like to see my apartment?”
“Sure, but I thought you lived here?” I asked.
“Well, I do, but well I made the basement into an apartment, come see for yourself.”
We walked downstairs into a living room that was well lit and nicely decorated.
“I have a full kitchen and bath along with my bedroom right through here.”
Jordi opened a door and led me into his bedroom, it was spacious and airy for a basement.
“I did all of the sheetrock and decorating, everything but the plumbing and electrical, it took me near a year but it was worth it, I have been living here to save money to move to the city and open a pie shop.”
“Wow, you really are serious about pies, you are going to get your pie shop open in no time when you are this focused.”
Jordi sat on the edge of the bed patting the bedspread next to him, I sat next to him and he put his arm around me and kissed me.
“Mmm, I need another!” I said softly.
I leaned in for a second kiss, this one went on for a couple of minutes as we fell back onto the bed. My hand slipped under Jordi’s shirt feeling the ripples of his abs and up to his nipples rubbing each to a stiff bullet tip.
I unbuttoned his shirt and pulled it back, my tongue was all over his chest, his hands reaching for me but I pushed him back gently so I could chew on his nipples and lick my way down his treasure trail. I unzipped his slacks and pushed my hand into his briefs feeing a very stiff prick wanting my full attention.
Jordi kicked his shoes off while I pulled his slacks and underwear off, leaving his cock bouncing off of his abs, I lifted his legs and pushed them back towards his chest leaving his bare ass pointing up with his winking butthole. I spat on his pucker and shoved in two fingers, reaming him out good, I could not help to wonder if his brother the Deputy could know how much I was going to use Jordi’s ass, but then Jordi seemed to love it.
“Fuck my ass Steve, drill me good.”
I didn’t need any more of an invitation than that, I stepped out of my own pants releasing my stiff prick, Jordi pointed to a dresser drawer and said only two words “condom, lube”, I had them in my hands in a flash and was rolling on the condom in a flick of a dick. I squirted some lube onto my fingertips and pushed it onto Jordi’s raspberry before I leaned into his hole with my hard cock pressing it in one fluid motion until I was pubes deep into his ass.
Jordi’s grip on my cock as he squeezed his sphincter down on it, felt wonderful. My hips pulled my cock out of his ass before plunging it back in to the hilt, pushing his legs up farther I was able to look into his face while I jack rabbit fucked him, I went in short bursts as fast as I could go before slowing to a deep thrust again, Jordi was almost howling while I burned his hole up.
I had Jordi rolled back almost onto his shoulders and felt like I wanted to climb right into his ass, my knees were off of the bed, my, hands and feet held me up. His hole was so stretched out by now that I watched my cock come completely out before pushing it back in deep.
I slowed and grabbed Jordi’s hard prick and jacked him with my cock still inside him, Jordi started moaning so loudly I think people in the next county heard him. I continued jacking him off while he was still bent over his own face, his dick erupted spraying his face with his own cum and it was allot of cum, it was all over running down his cheeks and in his hair.
I decided to give him a real cum bath and pulled out of his ass tossing the condom aside I jacked my cock until my cum spurted all the way to his pulling back for the last two shots of cum to shoot onto his still upturned ass hole coating it in milky white jizz.
I fell to one side and kissed Jordi’s cum coated lips.
“Where can I find a washcloth to clean you up?” I asked.
Jordi pointed to the bathroom. “In the cabinet to the right of the sink.”
I headed to the bathroom returning with a warm washcloth and wiped Jordi’s face free of cum before cleaning the cum that was running down his ass crack.
I put my head on the pillow next to his, looking into his eyes, smelling his aftershave scent. I closed my eyes as he moved onto my shoulder laying his head down I pulled him close and I felt very comfortable with Jordi.
“That was fucking fantastic.” He said.
“I agree, it really was and I think I’ll need more, very soon.”
“We had better get up and dressed, my brother and Karen are probably back or will be very soon.”
We walked back upstairs when we heard footsteps above us, Karen was all a chatter about Mike and his Christmas tree being so lovely.
In a moment of the front door closing, Karen had a fresh batch of margaritas blended up, this time cranberry.
“Did you boys get better acquainted while we were out?” Karen asked.
Lonnie bumped her with his elbow giving her a look.
“What?” Karen asked with a puzzled look on her face.
Karen looked at Jordi seeing his hair was a little messed up and his shirt miss- buttoned all of a sudden she blushed as red as the cranberry margaritas, looked down and scurried toward the kitchen.
“I am going to grab some extra firewood before I take my boots off.” Lonnie said as he walked toward the door.
“I’ll help you.” I stated following behind him grabbing my jacket.
“Me too.” Jordi said.
“Jordi I have never seen you touch a stick of fire wood in my life.” Lonnie said with a funny smile.
Jordi rounded out a snowball and pitched it at the back of Lonnie’s head and that started a snowball fight between the three if us. It turned into a fun time, Lonnie pinned me down behind an old tractor, Jordi ran toward me rolling in the snow commando style, between the two of us we pelted Lonnie with about fifteen snowballs before he called out that he surrendered and needed to get the wood inside.
We walked over and each took an armload of firewood inside the house to keep the fire going all evening long.
“I was watching you boys from the kitchen window, looked like fun, never saw Jordi with wood before.”
All three men busted out laughing, Karen looked around baffled until she got it.
“Ohhhhh. You boys are all so funny.” She exclaimed.
Dinnertime finally arrived, we all helped bring in food to the table, and Lonnie gave the blessing.
“And we are especially thankful for our guest, Steve who has joined us for the holiday weekend.” Karen said before passing the mashed sweet potatoes.
“I guess you are staying over, besides you’ve been drinking, I sure could not let you drive anywhere tonight.” Lonnie said.
“Plenty of room here, we have a guest room or you could stay in Jordi’s apartment, he has a fold out sofa or whatever works out is fine.” Karen rattled.
Jordi reached over and ran his hand up my leg out of sight from the others.
“I would like to thank you each for inviting me into your home for this wonderful dinner, it helps more than you could know, I have missed being with family so much.” I said as I looked at each one.
“We always eat our large Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve and go to the town square on Christmas around dusk to the celebration in town, besides the turkey and cranberry sandwiched on Christmas day are wonderful.” Lonnie said.
“That sounds like fun.”
“Well, we hope you will join us and stay for the celebration.” Jordi said as he squeezed my leg affectionately.
“Sure, why not, as long as I am not intruding, I’d love to.”
“Nonsense, you are no bother at all.” Karen said as she passed the homemade dinner rolls.
“The meal was fantastic, I could hardly stop myself form overeating except I was saving room for the pies that I have been hearing so much about.” I said as I took the last bite of cornbread stuffing.
We cleared the table and headed to the kitchen, Jordi and I rinsed the dishes and loaded the dishwasher before relaxing in the living room, Jordi sat next to me and moved his arm around my shoulder pulling me close.
Lonnie stoked the fire and added another log while Jordi plated the pies, giving each of us a thin slice of the cherry, apple and pumpkin with a large dollop of whipping cream.
“Wow, this looks great!” I said taking the plate.
Karen brought coffee in to sip with our pie, I looked around and saw the love these people have for each other and the love that Jordi has for making pies really stands out.
“Jordi, this pie is insane, each bite is an explosion of flavor, I can’t get enough.” I exclaimed.
“Thanks, Steve, I really enjoy making them.”
“And he will have that pie shop soon, I just know it.” Karen piped in.
“She is my biggest fan.”
“Well, I may be becoming your biggest fan if you ask me.” I said giving him a poke.
Jordi grinned and knew what I meant, it was not just about the pies, we finished eating and sat talking and sipping coffee while Lonnie added a new log to the fire making the warmth radiate out into the room.
“Well, I think it is time for bed, I have a long day tomorrow.” Karen said looking at Lonnie.
Lonnie was a bit puzzled, it was only 8:30 and they never went to bed that early, Karen gave him “the look” and the light bulb went off and Lonnie saw that she was trying to clear the way for Jordi and me to have some private time together.
We watched the fire, Jordi snuggled in close and before long we were kissing, softly at first but it didn’t take long before Jordi had his hand up my shirt, rubbing my chest and twisting my nipples.
“We had better take this to my apartment before it gets out of hand and I have my way with you right here on the living room floor.”
We walked downstairs into Jordi’s bedroom, he took his time peeling off my clothes as he caressed my skin, kissed my lips and chest working his way to my straining cock. Jordi licked at the head and down my shaft to my low hanging balls, taking them into his hand feeling the weight before he dove onto my cock swallowing it fully.
His hands roamed my ass cheeks as he bobbed on my hard prick, I moved my legs farther apart as I sucked in a deep breath, Jordi ran his fingers from my balls to my butthole, pulling my cheeks apart before sliding a finger inside me warming me up for a good ass fucking.
I climbed onto the bed and went to my knees, my shoulders and face on the pillow, Jordi put on a condom and lubed my hole before he pushed his very stiff cock into my begging slit. Jordi rode me like we had been fucking for years, it was smooth and loving, as he got closer to cumming, Jordi grabbed my hips and fucked me more wildly as he shot his jizz into the rubber.
I rolled over onto the bed while Jordi cleaned us up, he went down on my cock again bringing me to the brink of ejaculation before I grabbed him pulling his ass over my face, I bit and nibbled his sweet ass and could feel his cock stiffening in my hand, he leaned forward onto my dripping cock, licking the pre cum from the knob. I fingered his hole while he sucked me to the climax I so desperately wanted, I could not hold still, my body jerked and moved under him as my semen jetted into his hungry mouth.
We slept soundly until morning when I woke to find my arm around Jordi’s shoulder and his head on my chest, I lightly rubbed his back, loving the feeling of this man against me.
Later we went upstairs after showering, Karen was like a kid on Christmas morning, she made cocoa and cinnamon rolls, we ate them near the fire as Jordi snuggled in my arms, it was quiet except for the soft Christmas music that was playing on the radio.
We snuck away for a little mid-morning sex and a nap before lunch and preparing to go to the town square later that evening. I watched as Jordi got dressed, I had brought a red sweater that I wore under my jacket and Jordi loaned me some nice gloves so my hands would stay warm.
The town square was lit with colorful lights and had a nativity set near the church, it seemed like the whole town turned out to sing carols and listen to the mayor’s speech about goodwill toward men, I gave Jordi a poke and whispered in his ear something about his goodwill to my ass last night.
We sipped hot coffee and snacked on cookies that the fire department has set out, I put my arm over Jordi’s shoulder before realizing we were in a small town and it might not go over so well and pulled it back. Jordi looked into my eyes and smiled.
“Looks like you are enjoying yourself.” He said.
“More than you could know, this is really nice, kind of Norman Rockwell, but it is honestly the nicest Christmas I have ever had.”
I spent the night again and left the next morning after thanking everyone for a wonderful time and inviting me into their home, I was about half way home when Jordi called saying that he missed me already, I told him to pack a bag as I turned the car around driving back to take him to my house until after New Years for a visit.
We were inseparable the whole time, I did not want to lose this warm and sweet guy, he was home about two days when I called asking him to come back only this time to stay, we opened a pie shop together less than a year later, I had quit my stressful but high paying job, luckily I had a nice nest egg put away for retirement that I could go in half on the pie shop’s costs.
The shop took a while to gain popularity but turned into a thriving business selling hundreds of pies a week, later we hired a baker and added breads and sweet rolls to the shop but the best part is being in love with Jordi, and I have a Deputy Sheriff to thank for that.

Astro News December 14 - December 20, 2015

This week there are some very lucky days ahead as a lovely money cycle has begin and runs through Christmas eve.

Venus trine Chiron is the aspect and not only it is great for financial opportunities, it's fitting for love and romance too. It's also a period that is perfect to practice forgiveness. How fitting this aspect would happen right before Christmas! If there is someone you need to forgive or perhaps you would like to ask for forgiveness, the portal is open! The energy is perfect. The cosmos are working in your favor to reach out to someone to mend fences. 

I also want to share that there are several lucky astrological money aspects between now and the end of the year we call can take advantage of. 

Venus sextile Pluto runs through this weekend and good for manifesting, drawing prosperity, getting raises, bonuses and promotions. Venus will also aspect Jupiter through next Monday which is another fine financial time but you may also spend more money that you had planned on too.

Third warning!

I'm just reiterating to be careful when driving as I have been telling you the past few weeks. Mercury conjunct Pluto square Uranus can create hazardous roads ways and crazy drivers. Be extra cautious when driving during December 16 - 22. The worst days are December 18-19, 22 and the 29th.

Mercury Retrograde is Coming January 5 to the 25. Be prepared and start projects and contracts now so they won't be delayed during the retrograde.

Good Shopping Days and Cautionary ones too!

You'll find some unusual and quirky fun gifts for Friends while the Moon is in Aquarius on Monday, December 14 through Wednesday around 2:00a.m. eastern times noted December 16.

I would not suggest purchasing gifts while the Moon is void all morning long Wednesday. Gifts purchased during a moon void, usually get returned, re gifted or not used at all.

Buy romantic gifts when the moon is in  Pisces on Wednesday beginning at 12:45 pm EST. through Friday at 10:15a.m. 

The better part of the day on Friday, until 4:37p.m. I suggest saving your time and energy as we have another moon void. With moon in Aries, you may buy impulsively and your family and friends may end up with over the top gifts or you could blow your budget.

Shop Sunday, December 20, until 05:02pm  if you can stick to your list. Have dinner and resume your shopping when moon moves into Taurus at 7:13 pm.

Astro News November 30-December 3, 2016

What's Happening with Venus and Mercury?

Lovely Venus is now in Scorpio as of Friday night so passion runs high and there's a lot of intensity in relationships. Our Scorpio friends will look extra gorgeous too until December 30 when she moves into Sagittarius. Mercury is now in the truth telling sign of Sagittarius so you will definitely be getting an earful the few weeks. Expect lots of "debates" within your circle.

My Pick for Best Holiday Shopping Day - This Coming Tuesday.

Saturday's moon is in peace loving and social Libra so it's a great day to throw a party or get out and spread some holiday cheer. We are celebrating here in NoLa with our holiday open house and then the Krewe of Jingle parade. We may even go to the Renaissance Festival on Sunday in Hammond.  

Same ENERGY goes for much of the day on Sunday and you should feel pretty good and have tons of energy then.


In the afternoon on Sunday, the Universe is sending you're a clear message about what life is bringing you next year. Be very aware about what is happening about 2:45p.m. Central time or 3:45p.m. Eastern time as this could indicate something unfolding in the months to come that could directly change you life or path. I want you to write down how you feel, what is happening, who you meet, any ideas, etc. around that time. Keep that paper in your day planner and see what transpires the first several months of the New Year. It could be directly related to Sunday's event.

Just a reminder; be careful when traveling between now and the 22 of December. The most challenging days will be December 10 and 22. Wear your malachite if you are driving or flying it will help!

As a stone of travel, Malachite protects and overcomes fears of flying if you empower the crystal before a trip by holding it and envisioning yourself in the wings of the Archangel, Raphael. It helps with jet lag, encourages smooth business travel, and protects in travel on congested highways and in heavy city traffic. Inherent in Malachite, is lighter green eye-shaped forms or bands on its surface. These "eye stones," believed to enhance great visionary powers, were used to ward off negative happenings. I have more here if you need them for yourself or for gifts.

Looking into the early part of the week

Mars aspects Jupiter on Monday so balance will be the key to getting all of the things you hope to on your list. You may wake up and have tons of energy but by the afternoon, feel very tired. So pace yourself and you can get more done.

On Tuesday, the Sun Trines Uranus. There could be some lovely surprises in store; big or small. You may feel like breaking free from your regular routine and if possible you should!

Jane Austen's Emma is oh-so Pretty! Book Giveaway

Wishing everyone a very happy holiday season this year! In the spirit of giving, I am giving away a favorite classic novel, YAY!

#ILookLikeASurgeon: The Journey to the First Tweet

Tweeting this:

on August 5 and writing an accompanying blog post, I never imagined #ILookLikeASurgeon would become a movement. I am truly humbled and inspired daily by the powerful, global response the message has generated.

In meeting advocates of the movement at the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress, I realized that many are also curious about my own story--who I am and what inspires me to start and sustain the movement. While some articles have simplified my background and described me as a “general surgery resident,” it’s actually a bit more complicated than that. Perhaps not surprisingly, my life trajectory has been anything but stereotypical.

Growing up, doctors seemed superhuman; a profession far beyond the reach of anyone in our small, agricultural community. I was raised on a dairy farm in rural Wisconsin, and both my maternal and paternal grandparents and great grandparents were dairy farmers. When I was 6 years old I was asked to draw myself “20 years from now.” I drew myself looking out the kitchen window, doing the dishes. Fast forward to 8th grade “tech ed” class (i.e. woodworking) where we were encouraged to choose a career from the Department of Labor Occupational Handbook. I chose surgery because it combined my love of science and my passion for helping others. Given there were no physicians in our community, there was really no one to tell me I couldn’t do it. Yet in many ways, the paucity of role models from a similar background has led me to question many times whether I “belong.”

When it came time to go to college, I received an academic scholarship to the University of Wisconsin, Madison and thus didn’t feel the need to apply anywhere else. As a first year student, there were more people in my dorm building (1100) than in my entire home town. While geographically a 4-hour drive, it felt worlds away. That first semester my mind expanded to greater dimensions than the previous 18 years combined. College proved to be a time of both professional and personal growth. I majored in psychology and earned a certificate in women’s studies. The women’s studies courses enlightened me to the strong gender socialization I had internalized growing up in rural America. Also, having grown up in an all-white community, I was eager to attend every “diversity” event I could. While Wisconsin may not be the most diverse state in the nation, the community of Madison is passionate about celebrating diversity and promoting equality. Such opportunities included attending courses at the Institute for the Healing of Racism founded by renowned bassist, Richard Davis.

Part of my journey of uncovering and unlearning my own internalized gender stereotypes included healing from personal experiences with sexual violence. I found empowerment in social activism. I started a peer education program, “Silent Crimes, Outspoken Voices,” which used stories of actual survivors of sexual violence to educate peers. We also started a men’s group focused on pro-feminist, gay-affirmative, and anti-racist issues as well as ending male violence against women. Skills and wisdom gained from these experiences have informed my leadership in the #ILookLikeASurgeon movement.

In medical school at University of California, San Francisco, I found tremendous inspiration in my surgical mentors who modeled a strong history of improving public and global health through learning from and giving back to local and global communities. As a student I was encouraged to continue my passion for advocacy, hosting conferences on both domestic violence and bias in medicine. After graduating from medical school, I took a year before residency to have our first child, Sierra. During that time I worked with a few health tech startups in Silicon Valley. It was a formative learning experience to witness the challenges at the intersection of medicine and entrepreneurship. It was also inspiring and rewarding to work with the many e-patients advocating for their own health and for positive change in medicine. These experiences brought to life the power of social media to connect patients and physicians and inspire innovation.

When the Monday before Match Day arrived, I clicked open the anticipated email and learned I did not match. I consulted with my mentors and quickly made the long list to whom my application was subsequently sent. That Wednesday I secured a spot as a preliminary general surgery resident at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill (UNC) and was subsequently invited back for a second preliminary year. I loved my experience at UNC, and continued to be inspired by strong female and male role models. Given the limited time residents enjoy outside of the hospital, I chose to focus on expanding my clinical knowledge and caring for our growing toddler at home, rather than aggressively seeking a categorical position. It was not a surprise last July when UNC did not magically have an opening to offer me as a third year resident and thus my initial plan was to work on research projects, network and apply for a categorical position to complete my general surgery training.

As is often the case, “life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.”

In early August my husband, Chris, was offered a position opening a battery research lab for Tesla Motors. Chris had set up Tesla’s first battery research lab and left this dream job to be the lead parent while I was in residency. We quickly realized that me taking two years out to do research or industry work would allow Chris the opportunity to return to the workforce for this once-in-a-lifetime project, while at the same time give us the opportunity to have a second child. Given that I developed a cystocele at week 26 of my first pregnancy, it is important that I not be clinical (i.e. on my feet) during pregnancy. It does not serve me or my (present and future) patients to put my health, the pregnancy, or ultimately my career at risk.

It was the culmination of these life experiences that inspired the #ILookLikeASurgeon movement.

Given the magnitude of the movement and the doors it has opened, many have asked me if I plan to return to surgery. The answer is a resounding YES! I love surgery and my goal is to secure a categorical position and complete my training. To me, the privilege of cutting open the human body and healing it from the inside out is the single greatest honor that can be bestowed upon someone. Similarly, it has been an honor and a privilege to lead the efforts of #ILookLikeASurgeon.

Not in my wildest dreams did I think I could impact the world of surgery in this way, especially at such an early stage of my career. Yet, when I look back on my life so far, I have lived my belief that we can inspire and help others on their journey, even as we are in the midst of creating our own.

#ILookLikeASurgeon has uncovered a global community of surgeons who are shedding the outdated surgical stereotype. They forge their own unique paths, maintaining their individuality, and prioritize being both the best people AND surgeons they can be, rather than forcing themselves into an ill-fitting stereotype. Personally and professionally, I—along with countless others—have learned that I am not alone. Surgeons come from all walks of life. The pictures and tweets shared publically, as well as the direct messages shared privately, have been a gift and a responsibility.

So what is next for #ILookLikeASurgeon? My vision for #ILookLikeASurgeon is for it to serve as a supportive community promoting positive change, ideally strengthening the networks of existing surgical organizations in the process. This will be accomplished through the continued conversations on Twitter and Facebook as well as blogs and more formal publications. The message remains the same since the very first tweet, that we can ALL look like surgeons. Just like our patients, we are all unique and we all have our own storyoften much different than appearances might suggest.


1. 將八卦太極MKB視為陰、陽正四面體複合而成的四面體星(MKB-Merkaba),也就是逆時正轉太極MKB帛書八卦序以及與之鏡像對稱的順時反轉京房八卦序。在太極MKB中這是嚴格的幾何邏輯上的先天。
2. 將八卦太極MKB視為正六面體(立方體)依S、R、T沿各邊中點切分成三種陰陽卦,其中一種即傳統所謂的先天八卦序(乾兌離震、巽坎艮坤),另兩種是乾巽離艮、兌坎震坤,乾兌巽坎、離震艮坤。考慮逆順時鏡像對稱就有乾震離兌、艮坎巽坤,乾艮離巽、震坎兌坤,乾坎巽兌、艮震離坤。
3. 將八卦太極MKB視為圓球(四面體星或立方體的外接圓球)而切分為陰、陽兩個半球,陽卦陽半球乾兌離巽、陰卦陰半球坤艮坎震,也就是四面體星太極MKB乾陽極、坤陰極交互統領對方三卦,同樣考慮逆順時的鏡像對稱就有陽卦陽半球乾巽離兌、陰卦陰半球坤震坎艮。
依太極MKB,就先後天的理念而言 :
(參見本書圖3.11、3.21及p.91三章二節之三:幾何易的基本原理:對柏拉圖立體嵌套給予1.自旋切分判陰陽、投影展開觀其象 2.在三維及其整數倍維度的三維投影中,賦予該維度之幾何元素兩種性質:陰陽變化及天人地色彩屬性。天人地對應人的靈、心、身,哲學的精神、心靈、物質,瑜伽宇宙力量之悅性、變性、惰性力量(悅 Sattvaguna 白、變 Rajoguna 紅、惰Tamoguna 黑)。這天人地三維爻就2維平面正三角形八卦而言形式上如同 SRT△。)


Open ScriptWare and/or Solid State Programming

It seems like that there are programming languages for developers (Java/C#) and/or software engineers (C/C++), also there are languages for system administrators. (Perl/Python/Ruby).
It seems like compiled languages more likely are fit for developers. (C/C++/Java/C#) Even if they are with the automatic memory management. (Java/C#)
While languages with the manual memory management seem to fit more for software engineers. (C/C++)
And of course i'm speaking here about the main language.
(The knowledge/experience/usage of multiple programming languages and therefore the ability to compare them and their pros and cons gives the ability to realize the defectiveness Java (maybe even C++), distinguishes the developer and the software engineer).
While languages with the automatic memory management and not compiled ones (interpreted i mean(doesn't matter if they are jited or not)) - seem more likely to be fit for sysadmins, for scripting. (Perl/Python/Ruby).

Combate ao desperdício alimentar

O tema poupança ainda está na ordem do dia.
Existem várias formas de economizar e rentabilizar os alimentos que possui no frigorífico e na despensa. Na realidade, acabamos por desperdiçar muitos alimentos pois não vemos forma de os utilizar.
Dessa forma aqui ficam várias dicas que o vão surpreender:
- aproveite os talos dos legumes, como dos espinafres e dos brócolos para fazer uma sopa de legumes;
- após utilizar os paus de canela, pode lavá-los muito bem com água abundante e deixar secar. Quando estiverem completamente secos estarão prontos para ser utilizados mais uma vez;
- quando abre uma embalagem de bolachas ou de oleaginosas existem sempre umas pequenas porções partidas que não parecem ter alguma utilização. Aproveite essas migalhas para colocar no seu iogurte sólido. Vai ver como fica saboroso.
- se polvilhou a suas bolachas/trufas feitas em casa   com um preparado de sementes ou coco e não sabe o que fazer ao que sobrou, experimente colocar no seu iogurte. Se não for comer iogurte nesse dia, pode sempre guardar num recipiente e depois utilizar;
- se as bananas estão demasiado maduras para conseguir comer, experimente tirar-lhes a casca e usá-las num batido. Se não o fizer no próprio dia, pode guardar no congelador para usar mais tarde. Vai adorar!
Não desperdice alimentos. Saiba utilizá-los e tirar o melhor partido deles sempre que possível.

Learn to Learn and Program

From GNU/Linux to K&R UNIX to Knuth/SICP and Sussman/Mindstorms

edit: If you liked this post maybe you will like this one to: Open ScriptWare and/or Solid State Programming

p.s. Sorry had no time to write it shorter

TL;DR - When i was reading about Mindstorms/Seymour Papert it was funny to find that they worked together with Richard Stallman who started GNU which turned into Linux (And Seymour Papert Communist activist is the reason for jokes about communistic Linux). And then when i discovered Recursion and SICP it was funny to find that Sussman who wrote SICP was also working with them. At the AI Lab at MIT. And Mindstorms influenced SICP. So maybe Mindstorms is really an interesting book on Learning/Teaching to Learn and Program.
p.p.s. Even funnier to know that even 'Gnu is Not Unix' is a Recursion. ;)

The Story: :D
When a year or two ago i started to learn some C# programming i went on the internet googling around for a good book to learn programming. Because before that i only had scripted a bit some time ago. And had also some failed attempt to learn some C++ like around 10 years ago. (Maybe the foreign language in which lessons where given was one of the issues. (Or maybe manual memory management lol)). Although i have been quite good at BASIC before that. Also used/learned about Norton Commander/Linux back then.
So when i was searching around i found out that, by diverse suggestions, that best book on the topic of programming and learning was Mindstorms by Seymour Papert. But i never found time to read it. So it stayed on the bookshelf collecting dust. The C# teacher was also enthusiastic about improving the teaching methods/system at our school (CVO Antwerpen). So i wanted to give/suggest this book to him. But first i wanted to read, at least some part of it, to make my own conclusion of how good this book actually is.
When i was reading up about Seymour Papert i discovered that he also, together with Richard Stallman of GNU/Linux, worked at MIT Artifical Intelligence laboratory. And ohh, look at this, Seymours parents are from Russian Empire and Seymour was a Communist Activist. Ok, ok, now i know where the roots are of the jokes about Linux being communistic. I heard Russian people in Europe say that "The ghost of the communism is dwelling around Europe". But i didn't knew it looked like a Penguin. (Joking).
Maybe around half a year later at an 'arduino day' event, in 2014, at our local Linux specializing organisation i met Fedor, a 'Russian' guy, he is studying programming at the University of Antwerp (where i work as a Tech Support/Deploy (Altiris/FOG/OCS/SCCM) specialist). And in one of our chats about technology/programming/linux/operating systems/etc etc, he told me about Knuth being the ultimate book/library University course you need to know about programming/computers.
In the meantime i have done some more scripting in PowerShell already, for a few month. Got some Open Source Scripting/Programming languages books (Perl/Python/Ruby anyone). And i am now reading more about programming, instead of Operating Systems/Linux, for a second year already.
The handy thing i have found out about is that, when you lack a good (personal) trainer/teacher. (Im not too positive about our education system). You could kind of come by using some presumably good books. And if you look at amazon you can try to deduce by the amount of rankings/reviews which books are considered popular. You can clearly notice that i am biased in the way a sysadmin would be, thus not interested in algorithms (scrapped on my list) (i suppose all i want is just to learn some scripting (For which Perl/Python/Ruby would be exactly right i suppose)).
So the other day when i was looking at this stats i found out that the C programming language by K&R was the most popular programming book on amazon. No wonder, because Unix/Linux is written in it. As Paul Graham in his book Hackers and Painters mentions, one of the things that every successful programming language needs is a killer app. And what is a biggest killer app for a computer then an ultimate operating system as Unix/Linux. I also dont remember anymore if he said it also in his book, or this is something i thought by myself about. But good, not to thick book is also one of the important points. Ah yes, now i remember, he writes indeed about bad thick books. (Which i also happen to dislike). And so it happens the second most popular programming book on amazon is a thick bad book on Java (the King of Nouns). So ill leave the discussion on whether its a good or bad book for now. And skip to the next one.
So the third decent most popular programming language book on amazon is JavaScript the good parts. Reading which i have discovered recursion. Which i have discussed with Zoerab, another local Russian speaking Unix enthusiast. So he pointed me to the online scheme video course where i discovered the SICP, which they say is even an alternative to Knuth. But how amazed was i when i discovered that Stallman (of Gnu(/Linux)) and Papert (of Mindstorms) and Sussman (one of the SICP authors) all worked together. And even more, SICP mentions Paperts Mindstorms as one of the biggest influences on the book. And by the way, they both use a dialect of Lisp. (Which Paul Graham adores to). So maybe Mindstorms is really an interesting book on Learning/Teaching to Learn and Program.
And even 'Gnu's Not Unix' is apparently a recursion to. :D

So whats the moral of the story? I suppose the moral is that knowing a few different programming languages is what distinguishes a mere developer and a system engineer. And by comparison of those few programming languages it uncovers you also whats wrong with Java. (And of course i perfectly understand that there is a difference between the technical merits and the marketability).
And concerning which languages to learn and/or maybe even in which order i think the Prophet Larry Wall sums it up really perfectly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LR8fQiskYII

#JuniorContracts - #NotFairNotSafe: We need your support!

by Roshana Mehdian
11/11/2015: Junior Doctor Contracts - Where are we now?
A lot has happened since I last wrote about the threatened imposition of a junior doctors contract in the UK. Opposition has been so widespread that we are being covered in one form or another in the media almost daily. Despite the uproar and the near unanimous condemnation of this contact; our government plans to press on with its implementation.
We are now at a stage where the British Medical Association, our union, is balloting for strike action, with results expected in the coming weeks.
Other developments:
  • A protest rally in London drew 20000 junior doctors and supporters calling for the halting of this contract imposition, this was followed by protests in cities up and down the UK
  • The shadow health secretary Heidi Alexander announced her condemnation of the contract
  • The Conservative party’s own member of parliament and Chair of the Parliamentary Health select Committee rejected this contract in its current form
  • Ireland, Wales and Scotland have all rejected the use of this contract for their doctors
  • Letters of support from thousands of consultants and GPs have been written to junior doctors and to the health secretary advising him against this unsafe contract imposition
  • Our Royal Colleges, in an unprecedented step, have written to the health secretary advising him not to impose this contract
  • Press heavily allied to our Health Secretary has now started sensationalist smear campaigns against visible figures in the junior doctor movement including the chair of the BMA and myself
At this time, whilst we ballot, I would ask for your support. Everyone who reads this contract knows it is unsafe and unfair. The voice has been unanimous: ‘STOP!’ they say. Our government won’t listen.

As a female surgeon I followed the #ILookLikeASurgeon campaign with much excitement; what a worthy and relevant cause for a global movement! Women being mothers, daughters, sportswomen, fashionistas, etc... AND being surgeons.
I couldn't have known that just a few weeks later, I would be contacting the organisers of this movement to help me demonstrate that the world stands in solidarity with junior doctors in England, as they face the imposition of a contract that threatens patient safety and is unfair to dedicated professionals. I feel that the values imbued in our campaign against this contract – the primacy of patient care, fair treatment and conditions, and an end to gender discrimination – are relevant globally and not just in the UK.
The government has announced it will impose a draconian contract on all junior doctors (any doctor who is not a consultant or general practitioner) in England from August 2016, in the middle of one of the worst retention and recruitment crisis the country has ever seen. Needless to say, with such poor conditions on offer, physicians will vote with their feet, leaving the system even more understaffed and overstretched. This will have a profoundly deleterious effect of patient safety. Those that are left will have to cover the gaps and work unchecked hours. Tired doctors make mistakes. Patient safety is hit again.
Please watch this video for the story to date.
Why is the contract so bad? 
  • It removes the mechanism for safeguarding (monitoring hours and fines for overworking) - to ensure doctors are not too tired or overworked and therefore do not harm patients by being so.
  • It is even more unsociable than the current contract, further disruption to our private lives will not properly be renumerated - Pay rates for Saturday evening are to be classed the same as working Tuesday morning. Who will provide childcare on Sat evening? Do doctors not deserve to be renumerated for working the most unsociable hours? A hit to morale, our ability to pay our mortgages or look after our children and thus a massive hit to recruitment.
  • It is potentially discriminatory - it penalises those who take maternity leave, part time working or researchers; leading to potential financial hardship for women bearing children and discouraging lifesaving research. How can we allow such a step back?
Our union, the British Medical Association, voted to ballot us for industrial action. The government should never have let it come to this, but I'm afraid they only have themselves to blame.
We will fight this - not just for us, but for those on the cutting block next, our nurses, for those across the world facing similar battles, and ultimately for our patients!
I am truly in awe of how, as a profession, we fight through adversity (be it the challenging situations at work, the emotional toll or this latest contract saga) with such resilience. All of us, including our colleagues; nurses, physiotherapists, cleaners, clerks, pharmacists etc...in the healthcare world deserve recognition for what we do, not least a fair and safe contract.
Please stand with us in solidarity this Saturday, October 17th and tweet to make your voice heard!
