I just love cooking with citrus fruits not only are they healthy but they add such a lovely zing to a dish don’t you think?
Today my dishes includes either Orange or Lemon and when I was thinking about this and don’t ask why because I haven’t a clue my brain just wanders at times and goes off on a tangent.
But the Children’s Nursery rhyme Oranges and Lemons, said the bells of St.Clements sprung to mind…Who remembers that? We used to play that game at parties and in the school playground…Did you?
Today I give you a recipe which was originally given to me by my friend Mamik who comes from Indonesia… she makes the most awesome Beef Rendang which I will share with you another day…
These chicken skewers are lovely and moist and making them on lemon grass skewers just enhances that lovely lemon flavour.

Last week I gave you a list of free resources you can use as a writer. Mostly resources that help you be a better writer, rather than resources with practical application (like a word processor). This week I’ve decided to combine the usefulness of last week’s post with the value of books.
Here are my top 3 books for writers:
On Writing – Stephen King
I don’t know of any book as good as Stephen King’s On Writing for the aspiring novelist. Honestly, I feel like this is the best book written on the subject. Stephen King is not only a phenomenal wordsmith, but he is also an amazing storyteller.
In, On Writing, Stephen King takes us on a journey through his life. Half the book is like a memoir, the other, is like a manual. In the first half, you get to see what circumstances and events led to…

I HAVE HAD SEVERAL ASTROLOGY READINGS by Joan Porte, I highly recommend her.
Understanding Your Karmic Journey
JOAN PORTE recently had the honor to present a one hour mini class with Evolutionary Astrology Zoom Meetings on how to use astrology to find true fulfillment and get the most out of this lifetime.
It is so important to know where your South Node, the indicator of your karmic past, and North Node, current soul’s desire, reside in your chart. By using the positive energy from previous lives to catapult you into new learning and experiences, you will open yourself up to a more satisfying journey.
In this video I go through each South Node/North Node axis to give an overview of how each can play out in a chart.
I hope you will enjoy this review and use it to get to know more about how you can open yourself up to all life has to offer.

Intrigue, suspicion and true love at the Congress of Vienna…
In 1814, with Napoleon finally defeated, the great and the good of Europe descend on Vienna to plan a lasting peace – and to dance.

It is two years since I posted the series on the nutrients we need in our daily diet to maintain our health. Each week I will explore a different nutrient and and best sources to ensure that you receive sufficient amounts in your diet. I hope that even if you remember the series from two years ago that you will still find interesting.
The body has evolved over many thousands of years to process food precisely to extract the nutrients it contains. There is a delicate eco-system within our bodies that requires that precision when it comes to maintaining a healthy balance. The systems that process our food are unable to extract these essential nutrients from industrially produced foods, however many vitamins and minerals have been added during the production process.
When the body does not receive the nutrients in the right format, ill-health results including cancer, chronic auto-immune…
