My Banana

My banana has got a heart!

Yeah, I know it's nothing like the Shroud of Turin or those faces people see burnt on their toast. But, let's admit it, my banana has got a heart..erm..had. I ate it - and went bananas!

Don't blame me if you got Harry Belafonte singing about bananas in your mind over and over again.

Postal Service in the Early 1900s

I just had to share this!

"In the early 1900s kids were sometimes sent by parcel post since postal stamps were cheaper than train tickets." I don't know if that's the truth (really!), and to what kind of kids they are referring here, but, at least, this caught my full attention. Would it be awesome to be sent by parcel post even today?!

Fresh Cherries (for Breakfast)

I've got a cherry tree at my parents' garden. It's been growing there for like twenty years already. But, no, no cherries yet. First (ten) winters were brutal: bad, bad, bad hares ate my cherry tree almost to death. Me and my mom did try to protect our precious but, some how, hares kicked our ass. But, now, that we've really put some serious extra effort in having fresh cherries straight from our garden, my cherry tree has finally grown into - a very large bush.

I don't know if we ever get fresh cherries other than those that we buy at stores but, hey, it's great having a cherry tree (bush) any way.

Pictured here my breakfast - fresh cherries. I hate those canned cherries that you still see on birthday cakes. They taste terrible, like rubber.

Have a Coke!

This bottle of Coca-Cola is calling my name - cheers!

Dare to listen to this wonderful song - it touches my heart each and every time. Calleth you, cometh I!
