‘Hooch.’ 

I have this thing about not being able to walk past the homeless without giving them something. This dog and her owner probably play on my mind more than any other. Sam her owner, has such poor circulation in his hands from the cold, that they are like two red inflated rubber gloves. 

I spent about two hours with them both yesterday, buying him coffee and food, and I got her a few tins of dog food. In all of that time, only three people gave him a bit of change. The owner of the burger/ice cream van outside Tower Hill station walked past and threw an empty crisp packet at them… Disgusting little man. 

Both dog and owner are quite happy, and a pleasure to spend time with.

Hello Magnificos :)

We dwell a lifestyle in an adulterated surrounding which makes me feel to escape this concrete jungle for a while to breathe some fresh air. Being a nature lover myself, I dream a place that has the goodness of mother earth teamed up with the latest amenities and technology which I’m slave to.

By now you might have…

Sapa, chưa đầy 1 năm trước,

Mùa đông bao giờ cũng khiến mình phát rồ lên được, vì chả hiểu thế nào mà mũi bỗng dưng nhạy mùi hơn hẳn, cứ nghĩ đến mùa đông là thể nào cũng có mùi rơm khô đốt ngoài đồng, mùi Pure Poison hay mùi sương muối …
Nhưng mà quanh năm cứ thương nhớ mùa đông…

Kim Richards Arrested After Drunk Confrontation With Police Officer!

Sad news for Kim Richards.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was arrested early Thursday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel, E! News confirms.

According to officials, the Beverly Hills Police were called around 1:30 a.m. by security in response to a reported fight, where Richards was described as belligerent with slurred speech and reeking of a strong odor of alcohol.

Per police, Richards was initially in the bathroom and refused to come out, but she was eventually brought to the Beverly Hills Police Station for booking. She has since been processed and released.

Back in December 2011, Richards checked into an undisclosed treatment facility to address her issues with substance abuse. Just over one month later, her sister,Kyle Richards, confirmed that her sibling had checked out of treatment.

“We’re very happy to report that Kyle told me exclusively off the air Kim is actually out of rehab!” Ryan Seacrest said at the time. “She assured us, despite reports to the contrary, Kim is not drinking or partying at all, and is on the road to recovery.”

Richards’ bizarre behavior has been highly documented on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. During the season one finale, Kim and Kyle had a blow-up fight on camera, causing Kyle to scream at her sister,  "You are an alcoholic! Yeah, that’s right. I’ve said it now and everybody knows.“

Earlier this week, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season seven reunion aired, where the reality star insisted she has not been struggling with her sobriety. Kim’s alleged substance abuse resurfaced as a plot point this season after the 50-year-old mother of four took a pain pill from her ex-husband, Monty Brinson, which caused her to exhibit erratic behavior.

"OK—now here’s the back story to the whole poker night debacle. Before the poker party took place, I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks,” Kim wrote on her blog in response to the incident. “I took the pain medication from Monty thinking it can get me through the pain I was experiencing. Little did I know, it just made me kind of out of it! But seriously, if I knew the medication was going to affect me in a negative way, I would have NEVER taken it. Careless decision on my part—lesson learned!”

She added: “In the next episode you will see that I end up in the hospital with major injuries due to being sick, but because of my history, some people will automatically assume one thing, even though they have seen nothing but strength and courage in my sobriety [sic]for the last three years.”

April 10th - Passing the huge shopping complex at Merry Hill today, I realised a few things. Firstly, that although it was sold as regeneration - it was built on the site of the Round Oak Steelworks in the late 1980s - it hasn’t regenerated the area around it at all, large tracts of which are still waste and derelict. Secondly, it’s looking just a shade dated and tatty these days - but no less busy.

Thirdly, the ill-fated monorail that linked this place to the Waterfront - taken out after six years of unreliability and trouble - still has a ghost presence. Just above M&S, the black oblong prism is a former monorail station.

Oh, brave new world. What went so wrong?

From NSF Science360 Picture Of The Day; April 21, 2015:

Does it matter whether long periods of hot weather happen in June or July, August or September? Scientists studying the subtle effects of heat waves and droughts say that when such events happen makes a big difference. American Bison (Bison bison) that graze the prairie don’t seem to respond to heat waves, but may gain more weight in years with drier weather–provided that droughts come in late June or early July rather than in August or later.

Why do Indian filmmakers go to foreign locales to shoot song sequences when there are so many beautiful backdrops right at home? Ponmudi is one of them. Brisk winds. Golden-green rolling hills for miles. It was like we stepped into some fantastical story.

Excerpt:

“Day three in London began much earlier than the day before as we hopped on the District Line and headed to the Tower of London first thing.  The view of the entire thing as we emerged from Tower Hill station was spectacular, with Tower Bridge and the Thames in the background.  Our London Passes got us in the gate quickly and we wandered around a bit while awaiting the beginning of the next guided tour, an amazing must-do, in this tourist’s opinion.  Our Yeoman Warder’s name was Jim and he was brilliant, filling us in on the history of the Tower, from the bits we knew to the many that we didn’t.  Our tour began in what was the moat - now filled and covered with impeccable grass - moved on to Traitor’s Gate, and then many other sites before ending in the chapel, the resting place of some of the Tower’s more well-known prisoners.  After, we made our way next door to the Crown Jewels, overwhelming in their beauty and quantity, and then we had a lovely lunch in the café before exploring some more on our own.”
