With the exception of the tulips, all flowers were cut using the very tiniest gum-paste flower-cutters.


All flowers except for the tulips and daffodils are from hard-boiled egg white. Orange tulips and daffodil centers are hand-cut from carrots; red tulips are hand-cut from red pepper. Daffodil petals and the wings of the butterfly are yellow squash.


The leaves are cut from pea pods and took the most time of anything...I'm pretty sick of cutting pea pods right now.

The body and antennae of the butterfly are also made from the stringy parts of snow pea pods.

SugarbearSteve and I went to the zoo yesterday on a whim, testing our new XSi cameras. Though we each had initial start-up issues with focusing when we first got our dSLRs, I think we're starting to get the hang of it. I still have lots of learning and playing to do.


I’ll try to catch up with you later.


See my shots on flickriver:



I almost forgot to share with you a joke a friend sent me:


Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.


This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico, but as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg, sank, and the cargo was forever lost.


The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day.


The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as Sinko De Mayo.


Here is an article about the real celebration of Cinco de Mayo.


Brot, Krustenschinken, Tomate mit schwarzem Pfeffer, Ei und Mayonnaise.

Bread, crusted ham, tomato with black pepper, egg and mayonnaise.

They met in the kitchen. They actually used to be neighbors in the fridge. Eggbert was located in the upper shelf. Eggbella was located in the lower shelf, but life, and more specifically an incredibly crowded and disorganized fridge kept them apart at first.


Then, one morning, destiny brought them together in the kitchen counter. At first, she was destined to become part of an omelette. While he was destined to become a scrambled egg.


Their encounter was brief. The exchange of glances was pure coincidence. Quick. And yet just on that first glace their insides felt like they were already emulsified into homemade mayonnaise.


You may be inclined to think that somehow love managed to save them… but the truth is… what really saved them this time was an oversized portion of strawberry pancakes and a bad case of stomach ache that made my brother abort the rest of his breakfast.


So, maybe life is really not fair. But the really important thing is that, somehow, it still finds a way to work out well in the end anyhow.

Solo sea para que esboze una ligera sonrisa una familia muy querida. Dios quiera que sea así.

Ich war heute in der Stadt, musste meine Kamera zur Reinigung bringen. Aber keine Sorge, ich habe noch genug Fotos.

I'm such a sucker for still water and mist. Slightly rushed morning and it shows in the composition. Need to remember to slow down. Reading some of Guy Tal's ebooks at the moment and the heart of his methodology is "slow down and think". Somebody forwarded me a picture and story today about a philosophy professor with a mayonnaise jar, golf balls and pebbles…worth looking up. It made me sit down and post this picture today as a way of making amends. wife and kids away on holiday without me as I have to work, parents off to Jerusalem and I was too busy to say goodbye properly. My life is all pebbles and sand at the moment and I need to pay attention to some golf balls.

Herring Salad (German: Heringsstipp) with Fried Potatoes and Shallots


"Heringsstipp" is a traditional fish dish made from matjes or salt herring, spicy cucumbers, apples, herbs and spices with a sauce of mayonnaise, cream or milk.

I give you my heart and whatever you want but NOT the french fries. It is mine! Where is the ketchup? The palm squirrel is enjoying the meal. Photographed in Sri Lanka.




Pommes rot-weiß? Ja, kleiner Kerl. Die Pommes ist Dir! Nimmt Dir niemand weg. Vielleicht noch Ketchup oder Mayo dazu, oder doch vielleicht noch eine Bratwurst?

Das Palmenhörnchen habe ich in Sri Lanka am Strand aufgenommen. Das Kerlchen sah so wunderschön glücklich aus mit seiner großen Pommes.

I love the colour of this zucchini puree. The green is quite intense, and what's more there are dots of dark green from the skin of the zucchini.

Thanks guys for your kind comments!

"Bitter, unsuccessful middle aged loser wallowing in an unending sea of inert, drooping loneliness looking for 24 year old needy leech-like hanger-on to abuse with dull stories, tired sex and Herb Alpert albums. Baby, you are my Tijuana Taxi."




"I like eating mayonnaise and peanut butter sandwiches in the rain, watching Barney Miller reruns, peeing on birds in the park and licking strangers on the subway; you eat beets raw, have climbed Kilimanjaro, and sweat freely and often. Must wear size five shoes."

this is loveee baby this is call me!!

Aiea, Oahu, Hawaii


Sumida Farm supplies 70% of Hawaii's watercress to residents and restaurants. I love fresh watercress dipped in an mayonnaise and shoyu sauce.

For We're HereMayo.


Put some zing into your 365! Join We're Here!


Most of my mayo cup collection arranged in a rainbow.

* Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why so is mankind.

* Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don't know what your rights are, or who the person is you're talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.

* A man doesn't automatically get my respect. He has to get down in the dirt and beg for it.

* I guess I kinda lost control, because in the middle of the play I ran up and lit the evil puppet villain on fire. No, I didn't. Just kidding. I just said that to help illustrate one of the human emotions, which is freaking out. Another emotion is greed, as when you kill someone for money, or something like that. Another emotion is generosity, as when you pay someone double what he paid for his stupid puppet.

* If you think a weakness can be turned into a strength, I hate to tell you this, but that's another weakness.

* If life deals you lemons, why not go kill someone with the lemons (maybe by shoving them down his throat).

* Why do there have to be rules for everything? It's gotten to the point that rules dominate just about every aspect of our lives. In fact, it might be said that rules have become the foot-long sticks of mankind.

* To me, it's always a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can you give me a hand?," you can say, "Sorry, got these sacks."

* I hate it when people say somebody has a "speech impediment" even if he does, because it could hurt his feelings. So instead, I call it a "speech improvement", and I go up to the guy and say, "Hey, Bob, I like your speech improvement." I think this makes him feel better.

* I think there should be something in science called the "reindeer effect." I don't know what it would be, but I think it'd be good to hear someone say, "Gentlemen, what we have here is a terrifying example of the reindeer effect."

* I think somebody should come up with a way to breed a very large shrimp. That way, you could ride him, then after you camped at night, you could eat him. How about it, science?

* For mad scientists who keep brains in jars, here's a tip: Why not add a slice of lemon to each jar, for freshness.

* I hope they never find out that lightning has a lot of vitamins in it, because do you hide from it or not?

* If you had a school for professional fireworks people, I don't think you could cover fuses in just one class. It's just too rich a subject.

* He was the kind of man who was not ashamed to show affection. I guess that's what I hated about him.

* If you're a cowboy, and you're dragging a guy behind your horse, I bet it would really make you mad if you looked back and the guy was reading a magazine.

* It makes me mad when people say I turned and ran like a scared rabbit. Maybe it was like an angry rabbit, who was going to fight in another fight, away from the first fight.

* Why do the caterpillar and the ant have to be enemies? One eats leaves, and the other eats caterpillars. Oh, I see now.

* Love can sweep you off your feet and carry you along in a way you've never known before. But the ride always ends, and you end up feeling lonely and bitter. Wait. It's not love I'm describing. I'm thinking of a monorail.

* I bet it was pretty hard to pick up girls if you had the Black Death.

* I wish I would have a real tragic love affair and get so bummed out that I'd just quit my job and become a bum for a few years, because I was thinking about doing that anyway.

* What am I afraid of? I'll tell you: a feather. that's right, a feather. How could anyone be afraid of a feather, you say. That's an honest question, and I'll try to give it an honest answer. First of all, did I say it was a poison feather?

* If you're a circus clown, and you have a dog that you use in your act, I don't think it's a good idea to also dress the dog up like a clown, because people see that and they think, "Forgive me, but that's just too much."

* Whenever I hear the sparrow chirping, watch the woodpecker chirp, catch a chirping trout, or listen to the sad howl of the chirp rat, I think: Oh boy! I'm going insane again.

* If you're ever stuck in some thick undergrowth, in your underwear, don't stop and think of what other words have "under" in them, because that's probably the first sign of jungle madness.

* When this girl at the art museum asked me whom I liked better, Monet or Manet, I said, "I like mayonnaise." She just stared at me, so I said it again, louder. Then she left. I guess she went to try to find some mayonnaise for me.

* If I ever get real rich, I hope I'm not real mean to poor people, like I am now.

* You know one thing that will really make a woman mad? Just run up and kick her in the butt. (P.S. This also works with men.)

* I remember how the other kids used to say that old Mister Swenson was the meanest man in town. But I said I thought he was nice, that he just didn't know how to show it.

* The meanest man in town, I said, was the mean old guy who lived in the big white house. "THAT'S MISTER SWENSON," they said. Oh, my mistake.

* Whenever you read a good book, it's like the author is right there, in the room, talking to you, which is why I don't like to read good books.

* Instead of studying for finals, what about just going to the Bahamas and catching some rays? Maybe you'll flunk, but you might have flunked anyway; that's my point.

* Instead of having "answers" on a math test, they should just call them "impressions," and if you got a different "impression," so what, can't we all be brothers?

* If you go flying back through time, and you see somebody else flying forward into the future, it's probably best to avoid eye contact.

* If they have moving sidewalks in the future, when you get on them, I think you should have to assume sort of a walking shape so as not to frighten the dogs.

* You know something that would really make me applaud? A guy gets stuck in quicksand, then sinks, then suddenly comes shooting out, riding on water skis! How do they do that?!

* Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed, and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by Man.

* I'd like to see a nature film where an eagle swoops down and pulls a fish out of a lake, and then maybe he's flying along, low to the ground, and the fish pulls a worm out of the ground. Now that's a documentary!

* Instead of a trap door, what about a trap window? The guy looks out it, and if he leans too far, he falls out. Wait. I guess that's like a regular window.

* Like jewels in a crown, the precious stones glittered in the queen's round metal hat.

* I wish I had a dollar for every time I spent a dollar, because then, yahoo!, I'd have all my money back.

* If you ever drop your keys into a river of molten lava, let 'em go, because, man, they're gone.

* One thing a computer can do that most humans can't is be sealed up in a cardboard box and sit in a warehouse.

* Here's a good thing to do if you go to a party and you don't know anybody: First, take out the garbage. Then go around and collect any extra garbage that people might have, like a crumpled-up napkin, and take that out too. Pretty soon people will want to meet the busy garbage guy.

* If you want to be the popular one at a party, here's a good thing to do: Go up to some people who are talking and laughing and say, "Well, technically that's illegal." It might fit in with what somebody just said. And even if it doesn't, so what, I hate this stupid party.

* How come the dove gets to be the peace symbol? How about the pillow? It has more feathers than the dove, and it doesn't have that dangerous beak.

We had afternoon tea with a friend at The Tearoom at the Queen Victoria Building (QVB) in Sydney, Australia last weekend; given the very American influence in the Philippines, tea is still something of a novelty for us

In Germany "Pommes, Rot-Weiss" is a short form for ordering French fries with mayonnaise and ketchup. That tastes good. Red and white radishes also taste really delicious. Finely cut, on buttered bread and with salt. And prepared on a pretty plate, you known – You eat with your eyes ;-)


Rot-Weiß. Keine Pommes?

In Deutschland ist "Pommes, Rot-Weiss" eine Kurzform für die Bestellung von Pommes Frites mit Mayonnaise und Ketchup. Das schmeckt. Rot-weiße Radieschen schmecken aber auch wirklich sehr lecker. Fein geschnitten, auf Butterbrot und mit Salz. Und auf einem hübschen Teller angerichtet - das Auge isst ja bekanntlich mit ;-)

I Want To Live So


(...)I want to live so

With the sun on my face

And I sing happily


Giovanni D'Anzi e Tito Manlio

song composed in 1941


Luciano Pavarotti - Voglio Vivere Così


Taken at Lake Trasimeno in January, no texture, no filters.....


This song was sung by my father on Sunday morning while he was helping in the kitchen, he usually made mayonnaise by hand, beating eggs, oil and lemon quickly:)) ....

I wish you all a beautiful Sunday


Pea and parmesan croquettes with truffled mayonnaise

with arugula, cherry tomatoes, croutons, harissa mayonnaise and olive oil with garlic and capers

now i see this one and think that the mayonnaise was fucked up...

Image from Miss Mayonnaise. I want to make this into some kind of electronic stamp for student papers, when they're trying, oh so clumsily, to put one over on me.

served with mango chutney, wakame, pickled red onions, cancha, plantain chips, and sweet chili mayonnaise

My favourite all time sandwich....just something about all the flavours mixing together that make it so yummy. I don't put this much mayo on it though, but I needed the overflow for the shot.

Finally I made mayonnaise myself, feeling awesome :3


I grew up spending my summer days wading in a creek much like this, catching tadpoles and frogs and those little black bugs that smell like apples. It was a happy childhood with the cool mud squishing up between my toes, playing my days away with a tv or video game in sight, chasing fireflies well into the late summer evenings.....



Weather: low 80's with beautiful blue skies

on the iPod: Lori McKenna, Fireflies


Before you met me i was a fairy princess

I caught frogs and called them prince

And made myself a queen

Before you knew me i traveled 'round the world

I slept in castles and fell in love

Because i was taught to dream

I found mayonnaise bottles and poked holes on top

To capture tinkerbell

They were just fireflies to the untrained eye

But i could always tell


I believe in fairytales and dreamers dreams like bed sheet sails

And i believe in peter pan and miracles

And anything i can to get by

And fireflies
