‘To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower is to hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.’ – William Blake

Is it Pop? Cola? Soda? THE ANSWER IS HERE!

8 May

well. . . this is it. . . cola and soda finally go face to face in the ‘buyer’ battle of the century. Only thing missing is the presence of ‘Pop’ – the other cola. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ So apparently if it’s blue, it’s cola. If it’s pink, it’s soda. Now I know!

Do you remember that old song from when you were a kid?: This sheep looks like the kind of sheep who would sing that song πŸ˜› **He is one of the stone statues at a mansion in Gongyi, Henan, China. Some of the statues are centuries old!

#Pizza (made in #China)

19 Jan

First ever #homemade #pizza!!!! Made from scratch and pretty impressive if I say so myself. #China does not seem to believe in pizza #sauce since none of their pizza have much if any. They have a tendency to just throw #cheese on the dough without. So, tonight (to celebrate end of the #semester), I decided to try at a REAL (Okay, fairly recognizable) pizza-ish pizza! Came out yummy!πŸ•

#NoSmoking. Really

16 Jan

​We’re still a little stumped by this one.  About 8 #cigarette holders were on the table, filled with water and #nosmoking signs🚭.  

Ok, I get the ‘no smoking’ 🚭. . . . but then why put out 8 cigarette holders🚬 at all???  If to SAY no smoking, wouldn’t one do the job?πŸ˜‚

They took up a lot of table space, and we were all just rather perplexed 😜

#Crawfish Day!

4 Jan
