Food is more than the things we eat, it includes the places where we eat and way we eat things, too. In that spirit I present these charts to help guide you in creating both a formal and informal place setting.
The image came from www.myweddingnigeria.com. “My Wedding Nigeria presents valuable wedding guide to couples getting married to an African, in Africa and especially in Nigeria.” So now this post has provided you even MORE valuable information.
Hmmm, I’m kinda of surprised they didn’t see this coming.
The sun’s rays refracted through the ornament setting light to the curtains, before spreading to the rest of the room, at the house in Church Road, Harold Wood, on Saturday.
The residents attempted to tackle the fire with a garden hose and towels before realising the fire was too severe and calling the brigade.
The man had been asleep after a night shift and was woken up by a smoke alarm.
Now firefighters are reminding people not to keep glass bottles or ornaments on window sills following the blaze.
At least this kid has focus.
Remember the norwegian kid who stole his mam and dad’s car, crashed it and then told police he was a dwarf who’d forgotten his licence?Well he’s only gone and done it again, stealing a second car in less than a fortnight.The 10-year-old managed to drive for about 3o km (19 miles) in a relative’s car before eventually stopping.Last time he only made it 10km before crashing into a ditch near Dokka, about 110km north of Oslo. His baby sister was found safe and well in the vehicle.The boy’s parents contacted the police when they realised he was at it again, and the authorities sent out messages via Twitter and traffic radio in the hopes of catching him.It was a bystander who eventually apprehended the young joyrider and took his keys away when the car came to a complete stop.“Nobody was injured, but that was more due to luck than anything else,” Baard Christiansen, a spokesman for the Vest Oppland police, told Reuters.
The adults around the boy must take responsibility now before a tragedy occurs. It is scary and very sad that he is allowed to keep going on like this.
No charges were filed in the aftermath of the previous incident but it appears that the police won’t be taking any chances this time. The family has been reported to child services.
How could I improve on a headline like that? Actually, one of those news re-churner sites did by adding some details at the end. ‘Drunk Teen With Flower Pot Over His Head Uses Chainsaw To Rob Gas Station, Exposes Butt During Escape.’
An Australian man has been arrested after he allegedly held up a local petrol station with a chainsaw while wearing a flower pot on his head.
Steven Frank Steele, 19, is accused of storming into a 7-Eleven service station in Ipswich, Queensland at 4.30am on Monday. It is alleged he threatened staff with a chainsaw, demanding they hand over money from the register.
According to the Queensland Times, police allege that he used a chainsaw to cause damage to a window before making demands for the money, but instead made away with just a soft drink. It will be said that the man wore the flower pot hat in order to keep his identity concealed.
A sinkhole could possibly be the worst thing that could ever happen to a museum. Good luck with that.
A sinkhole collapsed part of the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky on Wednesday, damaging eight cars but not shutting down the building.
Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli said six of the cars were owned by the museum and two — a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil — were on loan from General Motors.
Bowling Green city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster said the hole opened up at about 5:40 a.m. CST Wednesday, setting off an alarm and a call to the fire department. Frassinelli said no one was in the museum at the time.
Slow and steady wins the race Makenzie. You can do it! Heck you already survived falling 3,500 feet.
DALLAS –– Pictures captured Makenzie Wethington’s face lighting up after walking across a room for the first time since she survived plunging more than 3,000 feet to the ground during a skydiving accident.
“The doctor at OU said that they didn’t expect her to come out of that at all,” said her father Joe Wethington. His daughter originally received care in Oklahoma, near where the accident occurred. “And now she’s walking across the room.”
“The injuries she’s had and the way that she’s recovered,” said spinal cord specialist Dr. Seema Sikka. “I still think it’s incredible.”
Sikka, along with a team of specialists at the Baylor Institute of Rehabilitation in Dallas, are overseeing Wethington’s care now. The 16-year old was critically injured when her parachute failed to open properly during a skydiving venture in Oklahoma. Her father watched from the ground.
“I just kept saying, ‘please don’t be Makenzie. Please don’t be Makenzie,’” said Joe. “And when I got over, it was her.”
Man that s classy with a K.
Clothing being sold as cashmere actually contains rat fur, it appears, as Italian police arrest 14 people and seize more than a million garments.
The Chinese-born suspects were arrested in the Italian cities of Livorno and Rome after a year-long investigation, and have been cautioned for fraud, the Italian news agency ANSA reports.
The clothes claiming to be made of cashmere contained a mixture of acrylic and viscose, as well as “fur from rats and other animals”, judicial sources say. Bogus merino wool, silk and pashmina garments were also seized.
Counterfeiting is widespread in China, in domestic and export markets, leading Beijing to step up its efforts to crack down on the practice. Taiwan’s Want China Times says fake goods are a “way of life” in many rural areas, with people having “no choice but to accept counterfeit and defective goods”.
China’s reputation for peddling fake goods may be hurting its legitimate industries elsewhere in the world. According to the Arab News, Saudi consumers may be put off by the “Made in China” label, even on popular brands, because they’re worried the goods might be fake.
Rebecca Uchill’s Random Exhibition Title Generator is an elegantly simple statement about contemporary art.
It has produced such believable titles as “Romancing Dilettantes: The Disjunction of Juncture” and “Queering Charm: The Video Art of Gender.” I find the site endlessly enjoyable.

Download Miss Fidget’s_2014_calendar_here.
Miss Fidget’s 2014 calendar is now available for download. This calendar, born for y2k, endures as an interactive and collaborative piece of performance art between the artist and viewer. The calendar incorporates re-appropriated found imagery and calendar features like federal and other holiday, birthdays, unusual commemorations, and astrological information with Miss Fidget’s unique world view.
This work has always been approached as a functional fine art piece. It has never been intended for sale or as a professional caliber corporate communication and can be NSFW. It uses unlicensed images and snap shots with no known model release. August ALWAYS has a naked lady that might be racy. Observances include Shemp Howard’s birthday and Lynyrd Skynyrdt’s plane crash. There’s often a maudlin essay that speaks vaguely of tribulations then slips into a chipper “Tempus Fugit! ”
Long time users may have rituals involving it’s use, like not looking ahead and letting each month’s art and theme be a surprise. Many make it the primary day keeper of their homes or carry it as their daily planner. Some people have lived with this calendar continually for more than 10 years.
For 10+ years the calendar was printed on desktop printers, often on fine printer’s papers, and hand assembled. As the quantity has increased so has the need for speed and 2013 was the first foray into professional output.
As usual, the calendar was completely conceived, designed, laid out, researched, fact checked, proofed, and readied for production in a blind blur between Halloween and Thanksgiving – well before the finishing of the space suit for the Mummer’s parade. That hyper rush may explain the essays’s tone.

Today is Festivus, a made up holiday from the TV show Seinfeld. One of the show’s writer’s actually had a colorful father who made up the holiday year’s before. The “Festivus – for the rest of us” slogan is inclusive and nonsecular as opposed to other December holidays.
Florida atheist, Chaz Stevens, has adopted Festivus and is taking legal action to defend it.
Fervent Festivus supporter and self-described “militant atheist” Chaz Stevens is threatening to sue a Florida city for not erecting a Festivus pole alongside the Christmas display in Deerfield Beach.
Stevens told the Broward Palm Beach News Times that he’s spoken to the American Civil Liberties Union about his legal options, which includes suing the city.
The Boca Raton resident already has a Festivus pole made out of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans at the state’s capitol building in Tallahassee, which was put up earlier this month.
THE LAST SUIT Adam Herr wore was an outwardexpression of the ideals he embodied – joy, generosity and love.
The last suit Adam Herr wore was a Santa Claus suit.
Herr, 24, of Lebanon, Pa., was in Philadelphia for the annual Running of the Santas on Saturday when somehow, about 10:25 p.m., he found himself in costume and on foot on Interstate 95 South near the I-676 interchange.
Motorist Augustine Bangura, 27, of Philadelphia, was also on I-95 at the same spot at the same time, State Police said. Apparently he did not see Herr or his red suit.
Bangura, driving with a suspended license, struck and killed Herr, according to police. Responding officers said Bangura failed field sobriety tests and his car smelled of marijuana. He was charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants and with homicide by motor vehicle.
