Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

White wine with cassis, prawns (shrimps) and salad, parfait!

Love the picture :)

How are the spammers behaving?
I acquired my own bunch shortly after you spoke of them, that's happened before, a blog I read was invaded and then my own suffered, they move like locusts through cyberspace

Blackhole exploits, the latest way of infecting computers, beware of untrusted links

A grand and, yes, beautiful edifice; a tribute to man's engineering skills. I refuse point blank to comment on the comestibles, as I sit here struggling to stop drooling. It's no good just talking about them, you must bring some back so that we can all share in the experience. Good to hear you're all having a lovely time.

Ah, kir: Did they bring the Crème de Cassis back from France?

Meant to say also how much I love your drawing/painting of the bottle and of the purple colour.

The bridge takes my breath every time, lifts me. Never had an Indian spiced beer, sounds delicious. (But kir, too many to admit! And kir royale, made with champagne- oooh what a special occasion treat.)
