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.

Please go away! My tum is a-grumbling with unrequited rumblings! :) (or something like that!)T

Oh-oh! Sorry, Tom! Or better yet, come on over...

Oh, God, I just came in from weeding the backyard on a truly beautiful Saturday afternoon, but I am ravenous. That pizza looks like it's to die for. How come you have a husband who knows how to make pizza (and great pizza at that). Not fair.

Here in Leyburn (UK) we have a fantastic pizza place - Giovanni's. It would be difficult to imagine making one at home as good. Great surreal decor, too.
