You're Clueless

You're young, you're hungry, and you're clueless.
The kitchen looms before you like something from The X-Files. There's food in there, but then what? It'll have to be cooked...or at least peeled. Probably both. And you can't afford to keep ordering pizza. Aaarghhhh!
How to Boil an Egg?
Running egg-2,5 minutes;
Soft egg-3 minutes;
Soft egg with no gooey spots-4 minutes;
Hard-boiled egg-15 minutes
Serve it and eat it out of a nice little egg cup with your favorite spoon.
It guaranteed to give yourself a perfect cooked egg.

Hot City

Hot city –
Cool people!
Tell me where and which? –
On the South Beach.
Ellis Perry,
And other art and fashion merry,
There are no better times to rate
For Mr. and Mrs. Fahrenheit!
They are having the perfect time -
“Please taste the berries so kind!”
During the height of picking season
There are nature treats for everyone.
They are making splash
And staying fresh.
Summer party is fun
Without winter vinegar.
Instead, they're serving cake with marzipan
For their entire family clan.
Impressive fondue
Is not overdue.
Summer roll dough
And heaping flour.
Plus “uno” espresso
For their own “peso.”

Summer Heat

At season’s peak
A have my greatest week!
Beside the sweet treat
For the summer heat,

The Florida wonder lust
Brings energy robust.
The time of the year is precious,
And due to the rumor, perfectly delicious.

The cool juice of your kiss
Very difficult to resist,
Vast of cool treats help beat
The summer dog-days summer heat.

I have to confess
The little floral dress
Set for progress
And summer success.

Summer Reading Programs

It is interesting that when people take summer vacations, they associate the free time with reading. And what could be better than a mystery or a romance book! Imagination of visual literacy takes over the relaxation time and recuperates for next level in life.

The time was not wast, it was planned and spend wisely. How fortunately, should we all be, as we are able to see and know how to read, many in several languages! More than two milliard of people do not know how to read! Beside, library services are free of charge.

Any way, summer is coming, and holidays and vacation time follow, children are out of school, and the bid read is on! Are you the person who takes a book to the airplane? Are the person who takes the favorite book to the beach? Are you the person who cannot stop reading the book and go on sleepless over the night? O.K., this is you, one of your goals, and the summer reading is your thing!

I Love Everything That's

I love everything that is old: old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old paintings. These things we call vintage or antiques. Also I love things that are new: New Times, new technology, new ways of cooking, new books, new beginning of life, new awakening of the nature, new seasons, etc.
Please let me know what do you love? Thank you in advance.
