En tanke och ett litet ord eller mening, en bild ger ljus i mörkret, ta hand om er alla

In these times, not much is needed to cheer up or cheer up, there are many who need a little light in the dark, there are many who fight for their lives and their health their jobs and finances what we experience is a very tough time as none of i have seen before

Give your loved ones a compliment. A picture can give joy and light in the dark remind your friends that you are there, let your loved ones know how you feel, the silence can be nice and pleasant but in these times your relatives and friends will be happy if they hear signs of life from you

I dessa tider så behövs inte så mycket för att pigga upp eller piggas upp, det är många som behöver lite ljus i mörkret, det är många som kämpar för sina liv och sin hälsa sina jobb och ekonomi det vi upplever är en väldigt tuff tid som ingen av i har skådat förut

Ge din nära och dina kära en komplimang. En bild kan ge glädje och ljus i mörkret påminn dina vänner att du finnes där, låt dina nära och kära veta hur du mår, tystnaden kan vara skön och behaglig men i dessa tider blir dina anhöriga och vänner glada om dom hör livstecken från dig

Framtidstron är viktig och att vi måste fortsätta att leva och le respektera andras ohälsa och ledsamhet att vara öppna för att hjälpa och ta i mot hjälp ensam är inte alltid stark detta måsta vi lösa tillsammans.

Koulourakia: Ancient Τraditional Greek Easter Cookies / Κουλουρακια βουτυρου

Enogastronomista

  • After the establishment of Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire- – which also included Greece – by Constantine the Great, (Constantine was the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity ) he was the first to offer as gifts to his officials, the so-called “palatine bread”, today’s butter cookies and sweet bread (tsoureki). The shape of  these Easter cookies and breads varies depending on local traditions.The best known is the braid. Braids and knots come from pagan times, as symbols of the removal of evil spirits.

  • So one of the ancient culinary Easter traditions in Greece is the butter cookies called “koulourakia” (kuluràkia).  During Holy Week they are found in abundance in Greek bakeries and home kitchens. The dough is mainly made of butter and must be of excellent quality. Low quality butter will give horrible results without consistency,  flavor and aroma. For this reason, every home…

Karidopita / Καρυδοπιτα

hard to resist – too much for me but recommend to others.

Enogastronomista

Karidopita. A mouthwatering , dark, spice scented walnut pie. Widespread throughout Greece, it is one of the oldest and most traditional Greek desserts. Scented with cinnamon and gloves, almost always served with a ball of ice cream, it has a flavor that is not easily forgotten.

The recipe varies slightly from one region to another, so it can be found with some small variations such as adding rum or cognac in the dough.

COVID-19 Update for Jamaica: Two More Communities Under Quarantine, Office Closures, and More

Petchary's Blog

Early this morning, the Ministry of Health and Wellness informed us that two more communities in the eastern parish of St. Thomas have been placed under quarantine: one is the rather pleasant rural area of Albion, on the way to Yallahs. There is a gated community there, called Albion Estate. The other community is Seaforth, where there is a high school and quite a busy community. Please see the Ministry’s release below:

A proud moment …Congratulation love…Hiva

Nadia's Jerusalem

I am unable, not share this overwhelming moment of my life. The year started with some exciting encounters, that included the finding of the woman whom I am named after Nadia. Zoe, our beloved dog, almost disappeared and was found by the tremendous efforts of my darling brother.


As life moves on, and my children are stepping out to their future, I felt as if a journey of life just rewound itself as Hiva stepped in her first career. Somehow all those challenges, trembling threats, unbearable difficulties, almost impossible attempts to make it amid storms of turbulence. Sounds of insistence that I will not make it … we will not make it. Somehow as Hiva is entering her own “I” definition of her universe, I feel this moment untie me from that chain of us into a new chain of Hiva’s own path.
I feel as if God finally smiles…

موقعة رئيس الشرطة والبنشر بين البطولة والخذلان

موقعة رئيس الشرطة والبنشر بين البطولة والخذلان

جري ما جرى من تداول لصور رئيس شرطة الخليل بينما كان يغير عجل الجيب العسكري الإسرائيلي من تصليح للبنشر. لم يعد هناك حاجة لإضافة الكثير على الموضوع، ويكفي القول ان الغضب والاستياء الذي ظهر من قبل الرأي العام يؤكد على استياء الشارع الفلسطيني من حالة التنسيق الأمني كأثر مباشر لاتفاقية أوسلو، وبالتالي يبدو ان التنسيق الأمني هو ما تبقى من أوسلو مفعلا. وعليه، فان غضب الشارع وتعبيره ما بين استهزاء ومساءلة يأتي كذلك وسط حالة من الإحباط الشعبي على الحال المعاش. ولم يكن حظ رئيس الشرطة في هذا المشهد في أحسن احواله، وخصوصا وان الشعب كان يحتفل في قرارة نفسه بإنجاز غزة، ولم يكن الا من الطبيعي وضع الموقفين في مقارنة.

المشكلة، والمصيبة كالعادة، هو في محاولة التبريرات، وذلك في الافاضة فيها، او العقاب الاعمى، في الاستبداد فيه.

بين المطالبة بعقاب رئيس الشرطة وبين الإعلان عن تجريده لرتبته العسكرية العريقة ومنصبه العالي واحالته…

كيف يغيب عن العالم ما يجري في الخليل

Translate and read – this is important

Nadia's Jerusalem

كيف يغيب عن العالم ما يجري في الخليل؟

الحقيقة ان الجواب واضح وبسيط: غياب السلطة وانعدام الدبلوماسية المزعومة!

 لا أفهم كيف لا يتم استخدام ما يحدث في البلدة القديمة في الخليل كنموذج حي لتجسيد كل جرائم الاحتلال.

الامر لا يتطلب شيئا، سوى المشي في تلك الشوارع المعزولة المفصولة “المطهرة” من السكان الأصليين.

٢٣٠ ألف انسان يعيشون في حالة عزل وقمع ورعب وتهديد من قبل ٨٥٠ مستوطن مسعور.

يتساءل العالم عن نظام الفصل العنصري، وكل ما يحتاجه رئيس السلطة الفلسطينية هو ان يجعل الوفود الزائرة للمقاطعة بالمرور او محاولة المرور من تلك المنطقة.

ولكن ما يؤرق الرئيس والسلطة غير هذا….

والعالم ينظر ….

والسلطة تبكي حالها من بعيد….

كيف لا تقوم وزارة السياحة بعمل زيارات وتعبئة دائمة لتلك الجرائم المرتكبة يوميا في الخليل؟

كيف لا تكون الخليل عنوان كل اشتباك دبلوماسي؟

يكفي ان تقف في مكان ما هناك لترى المستوطنين المسعورين والجنود المستذئبين والضباع من أطفالهم والجيف من نسائهم ومسنيهم.

كيف…

Save Schmidt’s School from being Sabotaged

Nadia's Jerusalem

An Open letter to the German Representative in Ramallah
To all German Institutions in Palestine
To all Schmidt’s Graduates
To all Schmidt’s students
The Ministries of Education, Foreign Affairs, Tourism, Jerusalem, and Environment.

Save Schmidt’s School from being sabotaged.

I need to be calm …
I cannot.
In an announcement made by the Higher Education office in Jerusalem, condemning the act of Schmidt’s school administration in donating the school museum’s mummified animals through the German Association of the Holyland.
In an instant second, a flood of memories was invading my head. This is not just about a few mummified horrific looking animals that used to scare the young children that we were. It is about a heritage that is beyond things. It is memories of a whole life of one generation after another in the last more than a century. A hundred and thirty years of memories of graduates of…
