"Silvester (also spelled sylvester or sylwester) is used in some countries, including Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland and Slovenia, as a name for New Year's Eve. The origin of the name is that 31 December is Saint Sylvester's Day, named for Pope Sylvester I,[1] who died on that day in 335." [source: wikipedia] All the best for 2010 --- Kjell

4. Advent

"An Advent calendar is a special calendar which is used to count or celebrate the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas. Some calendars are strictly religious, whereas others are secular in content.
Today, most advent calendars are made for children. Many take the form of a large rectangular card with many "windows", one of which is opened every day during Advent. In less elaborate calendars, each window opens to reveal an image, a poem, or part of a story such as the Nativity story itself. More elaborate Advent calendars have a small gift concealed in each window, such as a toy or a chocolate item." [source: wikipedia] --- Kjell

I love to run

"I have heart a million people say that running is the most boring activity that they can possibly imagine. Since I'm sure I'm not any smarter or wittier than these people, I can only guess that they never learned to listen as they run. If they did, they would surely be entertained and informed by their own thoughts." [author: Amby Burfoot] Very true --- Kjell


Back home in Hamburg. Miss you honey --- Kjell

They look good ...

I just tried those 3 minute no-bake cookies.
"2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons peanut butter
3 cups quick oats
In large saucepan, combine sugar, butter, milk, cocoa and salt. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Continue boiling 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and peanut butter; stirring until peanut butter is melted. Add oats and mix well.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand until firm. Store tightly covered." --- Kjell

Thanks to Keith Manning, I found this quote on Facebook: “Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes." --- Kjell
