How to Make GOOD Scrambled Eggs?

Anyone who likes eggs for breakfast can appreciate
these tips:

Break eggs into a bowl; allow 2 eggs per person. Whisk
eggs with salt and pepper to taste. In a heavy skillet
over medium heat, melt 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter. When
the butter stops foaming, reduce heat to medium-low. Add
the eggs to the hot pan. After a minute or 2, when the
bottom and edges have begun to cook and solidify, scrape
and lift the edges with a spatula and allow the uncooked
part to run under the part lifted. Fold cooked parts
towards the center. Repeat the scraping, lifting, and
folding until the egg has formed curds. More stirring
will make small curds and less will make larger, fluffier
curds. When the curds are firm but still moist, remove
to plates or serving dish. They will continue cooking
after they leave the pan.

Tips:
For lighter eggs, add about a tablespoon of milk, water,
or cream for each egg.

For extra flavor and texture, add minced vegetables and/or
ham to the butter and saute for a few minutes before adding
the eggs.

Remove cod fish from pan and set aside to cool. Potatoes should be done but pierce with fork to check. Drain potatoes and set aside to cool. Slice the potatoes into ¼ inch slices.

In large skillet, saute sliced onions, ½ tsp salt and bay leaf in ½ cup of the olive oil until golden brown. Add garlic during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Remove the bay leaf and let the onions cool fir a few minutes.

Grease a large deep oven proof pan with olive oil. Start layering the potatoes, flaked cod then onions.
Drizzle olive oil and pepper over each layer. Add garlic powder if you like more garlic flavor.

 Make sure you end up with onions on top. Cover with foil and cook for about 20 minutes. Arrange cooked egg slices on top of the onion layer.

Moon Landing 1969




Historic first landing on the Moon July 20, 1969.  We have not landed any where else since.  Next landing should be on Mars, the red planet.  That would be a historic day and thrilling to see man kind land on another planet.  With better equipment and cameras available, it should be quite amazing to see transmission from the red planet.

A question to ponder - if on a Mars mission a pregnant woman gave birth on Mars would her child be a Martian?  Imagine him saying later on, I was born on Mars :) He would be an alien from another planet, that is human!

A Gothic Romance Lyrics



This song makes for a great Gothic movie... I like the music behind the song, but not the vocals and how they are sung on this song :)  The lyrics are great though!

 "A Gothic Romance (Red Roses For The Devil's Whore)"


Evening minuetto in a castle by the sea
A jewel more radiant than the moon
Lowered Her mask to me
The sublimest creature the Gods, full of fire
Would marvel at making their Queen
Infusing the air with Her fragrant desire
And my heart reeled with grave poetry....

From grace I fell in love with Her
Scent and feline lure
And jade woodland eyes that ushered in the impurest
"Erotic, laden fantasies amid this warm Autumn night
She lulled me away from the rich masquerade
And together we clung in the bloodletting moonlight"
Pearled luna, what spell didst thou cast on me?
Her icy kiss fervoured my neck
Like whispering waves 'pon Acheron's beach
In a whirl of sweet voices and statues
That phantomed the dying trees
This debauched seductress in black, took me....

In a pale azured dawn like Ligeia reborn
I tore free of my sleep - sepulchre
On the sea misted lawn where stone figures, forlorn
Lamented the spectre of Her
Bewildered and weak, yet with passion replete
I hungered for past overtures
The curse of unrest and her ardent caress
Came much more than my soul could endure....

I, at once endeavoured to see Her again
Stirring from midnight's inertia
Knowing not even her name
On a thin precipice over carnal abyss
I danced like a blind acolyte
Drunk on red wine, her dead lips on mine
Suffused with the perfume of night

For hours I scoured the surrounding grounds
In vain that we might meet
When storm clouds broke, ashened, fatigued
I sought refuge in a cemeterty

Sleep, usher dreams
Taint to nightmares from a sunless nether

Mistress of the dark
I now know what thou art

Screams haunt my sleep
Dragged from nightmares thou hast wed together

Lamia and Lemures
Spawned thee leche
To snare my flesh

Portrait of the Dead Countess

Deep stained pain that I had dreamt
Flaunted demise, life's punishment
Leaving little strength to seal this wretched tomb....

But poised nectar within my stirs
Up feverous desire and morbid purpose to search
Through cobwebbed drapery to where she swoons
Goddess of the graveyard, of the tempest and moon
In flawless fatal beauty her very visage compels
Glimpses of a heaven where ghost companies fell
To mourning the loss of god in blackest velvet
Enrobed in their downfall like a swift silhouette

"Fleeting, enshadowed
Thou art privy to my sin
Secrets dead, wouldst thou inflict
The cruel daylights upon my skin?
Dost thou not want to worship me
With crimson sacrifice
So my cunt may twitch against thy kiss
And weep with new-found life?"

Red roses for the Devil's whore....

Dark angels taste my tears
And whisper haunting requiems
Softly to mine ear
Need-fires have lured abominations here....

Nocturnal pulse
My veins spill forth their waters
Rent by lips I cherish most

Awash on her perfidious shores
Where drowning umbra o'er the stars
Ebon's graves where lovers whore
Like seraphim and Nahemah

"Nahemah"

Pluck out mine eyes, hasten, attest
Blind reason against thee, Enchantress
For I must know, art thou not death?
My heart echoes bloodless and incensed....

Doth temptation prowl night in vulvic revelry
Did not the Queen of Heaven come as Devil to me?
On that fatal Hallow's Eve when we fled company
As the music swept around us in the crisp, fated leaves
UNder horned Diana where her bloodline was sewn
In a graveyard of Angels rent in cool marbled stone
I am grieving the loss of life in sombre velvet
Enrobed in Death's shadow like a swifter
silhouette.... 
Lyrics: Cradle of Filth

Ocean Music

A song to relax with sounds of the ocean.

Ocean Sounds

When the soul has been wounded and the sun is keen to surface in the dark there is one place i go to, that place that fills the earth's land with moisture and water, that changes the coast in a dream, that place the ancients call mother of mothers, the ocean.....
