ChineseDragonBlueChineseDragonBlueWelcome To That's Life Rant

A place to voice your own opinion, and just get on your high horse about anything you want, this is solely your own personal opinion!

Well we all love a good rant or moan, about the shitty weather, even the price of food, or just about life in general.

 

bellspalsyI remember when this happened to me, it is one of the most scary experiences I've ever had, go to bed one night, everything working properly in my face, wake up the next morning and half my face was paralysed.

It is a life changing condition, it makes you realise just how important your facial expressions are needed. I was exceptionally lucky that within 6 weeks I had 95% of movement back, but even after all these years, it still scares me. The total lack of information, surrounding this condition is appalling.

Well done to John Sudworth from the BBC, for the story, and highlighting this condition, read his full story here

IreneGlad you came by. I wanted to welcome you and let you know I appreciate you spending time here at the blog very much. Everyone is so busy and life moves pretty fast, so I really do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to check out my blog!. Thanks.

Hi all, for those who don't know me my name is Irene, I live on the sunny island of Crete, and really enjoy my lifestyle. I have never done a Blog before so this should be interesting.

imagesWell yesterday (14th May 2015) started out like any other normal day, got up fed the dogs, did all my housework, you know normal things when you have a day of work, got it all done by lunchtime.

Then just after lunchtime the girl from upstairs came down and said she had locked her self out of her appartment, so like the good neighbours, I gave her my phone to call the landlord, so the landlord said to cut the fly net from the bathroom window and climb through it, so gave her a knife and went upstairs with her, the window is 6 foot of the ground and about 16 inches square, so backdown stairs and get a set of step ladders, back upstairs again and the girl goes up ladder and cuts the fly screen on three sides, then trys to get in the window, not going to happen, us women have certain assest the stop us from squeezing into to tight spaces.

Let me just say that the party involved has asked to remain anonymous. I will honour that request.

Paging through this site you will notice there is no love lost between myself and

  • the owner of the old Minos Imperial now named the Radisson Blu
  • Greek bureaucracy
  • Corruption

Found out yesterday all these have combined to all but finish my local hostelry.

scotlandwolvesWolves lived in Scotland for thousands of years until heightened hunting eventually drove them into extinction.

The wolf traditionally cited as the last in all of Scotland, is said to have been killed on the upper reaches of the River Findhorn in the year 1743. According to this story a "black beast", thought to be a wolf, had attacked a woman and two children as they crossed the hills from Calder. So the Laird of Maclntosh arranged a "Tainchel" or gathering, to which all the hunters in the district were summoned, to attempt to drive the wolf from hiding and kill it. A well-known hunter of great reknown named MacQueen was ordered to attend, with his hunting dogs. MacQueen asked questions about the place of the alleged attack and sightings of the wolf, and promised to join the hunt.

On the day chosen Maclntosh and all the hunting men of the district gathered promptly - except for MacQueen, who was conspicuous by his absence. Time passed, and the Laird's temper grew short. At last MacQueen made a casual entrance with his dogs at heel, to be scolded immediately for his lateness by the angry Laird of Maclntosh.

halloumiHalloumi or hallumi : (Greek: χαλούμι or χαλλούμι; Turkish: hellim; Arabic: حلوم‎ ḥallūm) is a Cypriot semi-hard, un-ripened brined cheese made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk, and sometimes also cow's milk. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled. Halloumi is set with rennet and is unusual in that no acid or acid-producing bacterium is used in its preparation.

Halloumi is popular in Cyprus, Greece and the Levant.

Halloumi cheese originated in Cyprus and was initially made during the Medieval Byzantine period (AD 395 – 1191), subsequently gaining popularity throughout the Middle East region.
