Derinkuyu, Turkey- The Allure Of The Underground City…

For today’s Cafe Siesta, I’d like us to revisit this amazing City so that
those who are just following me now will also have the chance to see it.

Imagine a well-planned, well-connected, multi-tiered city in Turkey named

Derinkuyu, carved out of the stone underground. The history is incredible

and the fact that it has lasted this long in good condition is more amazing.

This may give food for thought about some cities of the future…

Hopefully, it won’t ever come to that…

I think we need a red wine for today’s slides…  How about a toast!

A little note of advice:

Wine drinking is not good for the line they claim. Still, one by drinking red winepomace. Usually the culprits ‘fatty food’ with wine. But keep it always in one to two glasses of red wine per day. Wine drinkers are usually not overweight people. …

Unlike beer, even at relatively high consumption of wine a ‘wine belly’ is very unlikely.

Red instead of white wine

White and red wine contain many calories, but the little grain of red grapes contains more antioxidants. Furthermore, alcohol (in moderation!) help prevent blood clots.

Cheers Everyone!

Hmmm…  Did I just say wine drinking in here? Well I really need a drink :)
But too bad there ain’t nothing in here… :(

So better I will just grab me a cup of coffee… hahaha

The Nun in Hooters… Just Another Manic Monday

Manic

A nun, badly needing to use the restroom, walked into a local Hooters. The place was hopping with music and loud conversation and every once in a while “the lights would turn off.” Each time the lights would go out, the place would erupt into cheers.

However, when the revelers saw the nun, the room went dead silent. She walked up to the bartender, and asked, “May I please use the restroom?

The bartender replied, “OK, but I should warn you that there is a statue of a naked man in there wearing only a fig leaf.”

“Well, in that case, I’ll just look the other way,” said the nun. So the bartender showed the nun to the back of the restaurant. After a few minutes, she came back out, and the whole place stopped just long enough to give the nun a loud round of applause.

She went to the bartender and said, “Sir, I don’t understand. Why did they applaud f or me just because I went to the restroom?”

“Well, now they know you’re one of us,” said the bartender, “Would you like a drink?”

“No thank you, but, I still don’t understand,” said the puzzled nun.

“You see, ” laughed the bartender, “every time someone lifts the fig leaf on that statue, the lights go out.

Now, how about that drink?”

One Point Of View… Just Another Manic Monday

image001-3

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
Winston Churchill

An old lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship
holding her hat tight
so that it would not blow away in the wind.

A gentleman approached her and said,
“Pardon me, madam.
I do not intend to be forward
but did you know that your dress
is blowing up in this high wind?”

“Yes, I know,” said the lady.
“I need both my hands
to hold onto this hat.”

“But madam, you must know that you are
not wearing any panties
and your private parts are exposed!”
said the gentleman in earnest.

The woman looked down,
then back up at the man
and replied,
Sir, anything you see down there
is 85 years old.
I just   bought this hat yesterday!” 

Happy Weekdays!

Art Game W-7 “Thunder And Lightning”- Titanic

Titanic

Art Game Week 7 -Titanic

Player #2 Raffleberry

TITANIC
The pride of the seas, at anchor she rode
Awaiting her human freight
Her crew pent up and eager for sail
Captain, stoker and mate.
Man stood on the shore
And looked up with pride
Upon what his hands had made
The unsinkable ship, in majesty, sailed
His hard work and toil repaid.
He had strained every muscle, sinew and nerve
To make her Queen of the seas
And she sailed from her berth on her maiden trip
A floating palace of ease.
But another sailed from the frozen world
No pilot at the wheel
No hand of man had shaped her plan
Nor modelled her frozen keel.
No cheer rang out as she turned her prow
To drift towards southern clime
Yet she carried on board a message to man
That would ring down the annals of time.
On, on in the night sailed God’s silent ship
Ploughing ocean currents and stream
Smote man’s titan work a terrible blow
That shattered her beam from beam.
On into the dark she passed away
Steered by a hand unseen
But a log she had left  – that all might read
‘Man shall not reign supreme’.
***

Above a very worthy poem entitled Titanic.  It was found on a scrap in the toolbox of Ben Hughes’ father, who was a master carpenter working on the famous ship.  The author is unknown.

The Nun in Hooters
