Mozart cake recipe

Mozart Cake Recipe

This is one version of a famous cake that originated in Austria and is modeled after the Mozartkugeln chocolate marzipan truffles. This is an elegant, elaborate cake that takes lots of time and some degree of skill to prepare, but is well worth the extra effort. Translated & adapted from "Kochen & Geniessen" magazine, directly from the German. If you are serving this to adults and want even more Mozartkugeln flavor -lightly brush the cooled cake layers with some Mozart Liqueur before stacking. In Germany, marzipan is often sold unsweetened in the baking aisle, in which case, you will need to add powdered sugar to it (which will absorb into the marzipan as you knead it). In the US, marzipan is often available already sweetened, in which case you can omit the powdered sugar, or add some to taste.

For the Cake Batter:

4  large eggs, separated
½   cup granulated sugar
¾   cup flour, plus
1  tablespoon flour
½  cup cornstarch (Maizena), plus
1 tablespoon…

Patient information

Patient Information

A woman called a local hospital. "Hello," she said. "I'd like to talk with the person who gives the information regarding your patients.
 I'd like to find out if the patient is getting better, doing as expected or getting worse."

The voice on the other end of the line said, "What is the patient's name and room number?"

"Sarah Wells in Room 302," the woman answered.

"I will connect you with the nursing station."

"3-A Nursing Station. How can I help You?"

"I would like to know the condition of Sarah Wells in Room 302."

"Just a moment. Let me look at her records. Oh, yes. Mrs. Wells is doing very well.
 In fact, she's had two full meals, her blood pressure is fine, her blood work just came back
as normal, she's going to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and, if she
continues this improvement, Dr. Murphy is going to send her home Tuesday at noon."


Salt Hotel

Salt Hotel in Bolivia

Hotel de Sal Playa

In the dining room of the Hotel de Sal Playa in Bolivia, the salt is always on the table.
In fact, at the world's only hotel made of salt, the salt is the table.

Located near the famous Uyuni salt mine in the southwestern part of the country,

 Hotel de Sal Playa's roof, and bar are built of salt.

Even the floor is covered with salt granules.

The hotel was built in 1993 by a salt artisan who saw a mint in the number of tourists
looking for places to stay while visiting the nearby mine, which is one of the world's largest of its kind.

This man is lying on salt.

The lodge has 15 bedrooms, a dining room, a living room and a bar.

The hotel walls are made of salt blocks stuck together with a cement-like substance made
of salt and water.
During rainy seasons, the walls are strengthened with new blocks, while the owners ask
the guests to avoid licking the walls to prevent deterioration.

Dust storm

Dust Storms

When the Air Itself Turns Against You!

They are known by many names: Haboob, Simum, Black Blizzards. A solid wall of dust almost a mile high, moving whole
sand dunes and bringing Biblical darkness to the huge areas of the world.

Scorching hot winds (up to 40 degrees Celsius) blowing the sand around with hurricane speeds...

What seems extreme to us is actually a common occurrence in Africa and the Middle East.
The similar sand-saturated hurricane-speed storms over Mediterranian are called Sirocco, Yugo and Ghibli.

The dust (or desert sand) particles become airborne and held in suspension, creating a moving front.
The convection of cold air over the heated ground maintains the storm and keeps the dust rolling.

See one such storm coming into the Israeli Negev desert from Sinai (advancing with the speed of appr. 40 mph).
According to the photographer Eviathar ben Zedeff (link), the sand wall is over 4,000 ft high:



Here is an alarming fact: sand storms now …

Touch my heart

Do you know how I feel when you touch my heart
Can you hear me cry inside at your silent embrace
Do you see the fear I keep hidden away
Can you feel the pain I never show
I can't help but smile when you touch my heart
You can't know the warmth it brings me
I can't bring myself to share the love
You can't see the hope in my soul
If only I too touch your heart
I only try to ease your fears
If only I could help as much
I only wish I were as true
Do you know you touch my heart
I love you being in my life
Do you feel the way I do
Do you know you touch my heart  Personal Loans Online in 5 easy steps! Click Here

5. When we buy a vibrator it's glamorous. When men buy a blow-up doll, it's pathetic.

13. Free drinks, free dinners, free movie (you get the point?).

15. We know the truth about…


After digging to a depth of 100 meters last year,
Russian scientists found traces of copper wire
dating back 1000 years, and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network one thousand years  ago.
  So, not to be outdone, in the weeks that followed,
 American scientists dug
 200 meters and headlines in the US papers read:
 "US scientists have found traces of 2000 year old
optical fibers, and have concluded that their ancestors
already had advanced high-tech digital
 telephone 1000 years earlier than the Russians."
  One week later, the Indian newspapers reported the
 "After digging as deep as 500 meters, Indian
 scientists have found absolutely nothing.
They have concluded that 5000 years ago, their
ancestors   were already using wireless technology

Ons het die van een van ons lede ontvang.Classic.  Moet lees. hahaAs dit van my afgehang het, het 'n jaar vir ewig aangehou.
Daar is nie 'n einde nie en daarom geen begin nie, daar is nie 'n
Oujaarsaandpartytjie nie en daar is nie 'n Nuwejaarsoggend-kopseer nie
(en Koos hoef nooit weer te drink nie, of hy kan ononderbroke drink), daar
is nie 'n Oujaars-bestekopname nie, en daarom geen nuwejaarsvoornemens

Jy neuk net aan.
Vat nou maar vir Januarie. 'n Maand sonder enige identiteit.
'n Klomp hou vakansie, terwyl die ander sotte sukkel om hul werk gedoen te
kry, want die spul wat die tjeks moet teken, lê nog op Margate se strand.
Dan jaag almal huis toe met 'n moerse spoed, terwyl pa sit en vloek oor sy
verdraft wat in sy kanon is en ma die nuwe rolle om haar middellyf blou
Die res van die maand eet almal viennas en droë Krismiskoek, want die
kinders se skoolklere kos 'n plaas se geld.

Arme, stomme Februarie. Nie eens genoeg dae om 'n ware maand te …
