Frozen Lakes Patterns

With the fall of temperatures, we have gathered for you the most beautiful photographs of frozen lakes and ponds from all around the world : Russia, Switzerland, Japan or also in Canada, their frozen surfaces are full of aesthetic and graphic patterns.

Ok this scene was ridiculously adorable for so many reasons. 

It said that he asked others what they thought he should do for her (even Ikki). Consider him ordering the cake. Blushing and stuttering, asking for a ‘’half month anniversary cake’’. The workers giggling at such a large, awkward looking man who was completely flustered by buying a cake for his girlfriend.

And look at the cake! Look at the wittle bun bun and the frosting roses! 

Cherry Clafouti and Other Sweet Things

(A continuation to Kenny’s 2 Months of Cooking Dangerously)


When Kenny is five years old, he falls flat on his face over some uneven crack on the sidewalk while walking back from kindergarten with his mother. The clay sculpture of a bird he made at school drops and rolls a good three feet away, losing its head in the process.

“Shh, Kenny,” his mother says sternly, wiping his blotchy, teary face with a rough movement. “Why didn’t you watch where you were going? Don’t cry. You can always get up again, nothing to cry about.”

His mother has always been practical. Five-year-old Kenny sucks up his sniffles and stares at her with wide, brimming eyes, too afraid to make a noise. He’s picked up his clay bird, now a lopsided lump.

“There is nothing you can’t fix, you hear me, Kenny?” she says, her tone softening. She kneads the edges and sticks the missing part back on. Kenny knows she’s tired from working the nighttime shift at the hospital the day before, so he stays silent. “Be brave.”

He nods. Years later, sitting in the hospital waiting room by himself after the draft—after Jack’s overdose—and feeling like his clay bird from over a decade ago, all he could think of is, I can fix this. There’s nothing I can’t fix. It’ll be okay.

Cruel pet owner who forced his dogs to fight foxes and badgers is jailed after his wife accidentally phoned 999 and police visited his kennels 

‘Response officers from Kent Police visited Alston’s home near Canterbury on 6 November 2013 to investigate the unanswered 999 call made from his wife’s mobile.

They could hear muffled voices on the other end of the line, but it’s since been concluded that Mrs Alston accidentally placed the emergency call while her phone was either in a pocket or a bag.

When there was no answer at the property the officers looked over the rear garden fence and spotted injured dogs kept in an elaborate kennel set-up.

When RSPCA officers searched the property, they found hunting paraphernalia, including digging equipment, an adapted treadmill typically used to train dogs on and veterinary medication.

Alston pleaded guilty to one charge of causing an animal fight to take place and one charge of causing unnecessary suffering to three of the dogs by failing to get proper veterinary treatment for their injuries.

Seven of the eight dogs seized as part of the investigation have now successfully been rehomed by the RSPCA, including Major, who had lost part of his nose and much of the skin around his muzzle in the horrific animal fights.
After reconstructive surgery on his devastating facial injuries, the dog is now happy and healthy.

Police Constable Preston Frost, of Kent Police’s rural liaison team, said: ‘Using dogs to fight wild mammals has no place in a civilised society and is a particularly cruel thing to put an animal of any type through.
'It was immediately clear from the injuries Alston’s dogs had suffered just what he had subjected them to.
'What Alston did is completely unacceptable and today’s sentence should act as a warning to anyone thinking about following in his footsteps.’

Alston appeared at Folkestone Magistrates’ Court today/yesterday (Mon) where district judge Justin Barron handed him a 160 day jail term and ordered him to pay £10,000 in costs.’
