I wish...

Photo by Christopher Gilbert
I wish that 2007 makes us all know, around this planet, that we are all made with the same water and now in small ice cubes we stand. And after we all melt, the pond will be made from all of us, so I wish that we start behaving as we do know it for sure.
Wake up!

coffee !

Photo by Christopher Gilbert
Coffee is a must for us, Portuguese, on the expresso form, we need it to start our day.
Queues at cafes before they open is quite common, mainly in the big cities.
Our coffee mix is
arabica and robusta, it has to be strong, not mild as the americans, the english or german versions ( ... dish washing water).
'Bica'; 'Abatanado'; 'Cortado'; 'Pingado'; 'Curto'; 'Italiana'; 'Garoto'; 'Cimbalino'; 'com cheirinho' just to name a few forms of asking for one expresso.
Delta cafés is one of our best ones.
Our 'Pastéis de nata' go so well with our coffee !

Kids in Portugal do not have proper Breakfasts

I believe that our children should have better breakfasts before they go to schooll, and the idea that i get from my sons is that their collegues have little or no breakfast at all, and then, at lunch, they eat as much as they can.
This makes the morning classes very poor, because I believe that no one is paying attention.

  • Why can't the polititians initiate educational events regarding this subject?
  • And why not make the breakfast for children in schools, to make sure that they all eat well?
  • If a child does not have a full proper breakfast , how can he or she learn properly?
Comments on this please!...

Fruit Buffet display

I would like to change the classical appearance of the breakfast fruit buffet that we have, so, I am asking all of you if you, please, could give me a hand here, with fresher ideas, with pictures, technics, descriptions, or whatever you think that could be good for this matter.
