IF YOU SEE HER:  THE EX MOTHER IN LAW WANTS THE POLO BACK

IF YOU SEE HER: THE EX MOTHER IN LAW WANTS THE POLO BACK

If you see her: the ex-mother-in-law wants the Polo back this is the writing above the photo, published on the Dutch blog GeenStijl, of the woman we have come to know as Sara LemLem.

This story dramatic at first is becoming bitter for the people involved, to whom all my respect goes.

I know, this is also extreme who cares news, but since the episode of Chi l’ha visto hasn’t aired, we can’t run out of updates, right?

And since it all started from Vigevano … you don’t care, do you ?!
Come on, now I’m telling laughing

For those who are not chilavister … briefly: in December the appeal for a woman who disappeared from Vigevano is released.

I know you will say “with the fog you have, where is the news?” 🙂

Joking aside, obviously the companion is very worried, even if, perhaps due to apprehension, his words at first seem strange.

In light of the incessant news about feminicide,  also considered that Mr. Corrado said that Sara left after a quarrel, he was asked questions about the nature and above all about the modalities of their quarrel, fearing the worst.

In the following days the searches are extended in every possible way, and the firefighters plumb the Naviglio Sforzesco and other city waterways, without any positive results.

But the diffusion of the photo, published on the website of Chi l’ha visto, bounces almost everywhere, and leads to a Dutch track that reveals a twist unexpected about Sara’s past.

Patrick, from Amstelveen, provides documents, photographs and also the complaint relating to the car of his mother, the ex-mother-in-law who wants the Polo back, which seem to leave no doubts.

The contact takes place through the editorial staff of the Informatore Vigevanese to which then Mr. Corrado tells more details about how he met Sara on a Belgian dating site, and about their trip to Italy.

Sara never wanted him to go to her flat claiming that it was in common with an Egyptian cousin, with whom she also collaborated on a working level.
Sara arrived at the meeting with all her luggage in a car that she left in a parking lot in Antwerp, saying that a friend of hers would have taken steps to recover it.
Sara told him she had lost all documents.

And I’m not even writing that, while doing research, I found Sara as an author, or more precisely as a Milanese videomaker of Eritrean and Ethiopian origins, but that the link leads to an even different identity: Sarita, because at this point it is not even important.

Thinking of people who disappear, where it does not turn out to be a terrible epilogue, one wonders HOW one can even travel without a trace …

Here, in this case the ex mother-in-law rightly wants the Polo back.

LIVING THE SWEET LIFE

LIVING THE SWEET LIFE

Living the sweet life these are words that came to my mind when I discovered this incredible find.

Honestly, I didn’t really believe it right away, but in fact it was really communicated by an official source.

Galina Georgievna Fiódorova, an artist-restorer of the Hermitage Museum from St. Petersburg, while she was working on a dress of the Grand Duchess Ksenia Aleksandrovna Romanova Ксения Александровна Рома, noticed that one of the sleeves had been sewn for some reason, but the stitch was light enough, so she decided to remove the thread.

At that point something pink fell on her hand, it looked like a pebble.

Many have talked about chocolate.

A chocolate no less than 118 years old!

It is true that I have always maintained that chocolate cannot expire … laughing but here we would be over !!

Actually I would say that it is more of a candy.

Sugar.

The ubiquitous sugar.

Also long-lived …

The funny thing is that Ksenia took a bite and then, not knowing how to get rid of it, is supposed to have hidden the candy up her sleeve.

But there is something even more absurd: Galina declared that she had the instinct to… taste it !!

Here’s how she realized the sweet taste.

Some ancient instincts have probably been triggered

Infants actually study what happens in their hands by bringing it to their mouths, but honestly I would never have the instinct to “taste” an unidentified object.

What about you?

I know, it’s incredible, yet here you can find the video published on the official profile of the museum.

Galina and Nina Ivanovna Tarasova, curator of the costume fund of the Department of History of Russian Culture, talk about the restoration of the dress created for the famous 1903 costume ball and explain the unexpected discovery.

One of the sleeves was sewn for some reason, but the stitch was light enough and the restorer decided to remove the thread …

I know it’s a who cares news of the most extreme kind, but because of its absurdity I thought it should be told, above all to understand, have you ever hiding food in an unusual way? I know a slice of salami in my pocket, a sandwich in the leg …

And what could you have up your sleeve?

Better the classic “aces” perhaps, or not?

THE PEN IS ON THE TABLE

THE PEN IS ON THE TABLE

The pen is on the table how many times have you repeated this phrase?

How long has your knowledge of English continued?

Apparently, the new global survey in this regard sees Italy in the last place among all European nations for language skills in English.

Yet we begin to study English since kindergarten, we are surrounded by sources in languages of all kinds, we are also a people of saints, navigators and travelers … when possible …

We should be constantly learning and we should demonstrate significant growth in the knowledge of the English language.

Instead we are the worst at EU level, only Moldova is just after Italy as shown in the graph

Why?

The study is English Proficiency by EF but to tell the truth we don’t need a study to realize it.

On the other hand, the legendary Mr. Flanagan also taught us!

Seriously, who hasn’t followed the tutorials by John Peter Sloan at least once?

My all-time favorite character: Granny Smith of course!

We really should be able to call her at least once a day.

Do you have any suggestions for improving English?

In the meantime, I fear that we will continue to make do our way …

BURJ AL BABAS  – ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A CASTLE, … NO, MORE!

BURJ AL BABAS – ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A CASTLE, … NO, MORE!

Burj Al Babas is the name of a ghost town located in Turkey

Yep, I don’t know about you, but I find the idea fascinating.

And if I tell you that this city is made up of about seven hundred castles inspired precisely by those of fairy tales?

My first thought was a mix of Mickey’s Apprentice Sorcerer getting out of control again like with brooms

 

and the Star Wars clones

 

Not that it is new that “on paper” as they say, the perspectives are a little different… but there is also an official website where you can admire pharaonic contexts.

With all the possible understanding for the splendor of the case, the idea of an agglomeration of seven hundred castles in series makes me think of a nightmare, or at least a sort of Suburbicon in the sheikh version.

But can you imagine how the constraints could be?
I get something like “dragons can only be kept in the highest tower …”

Seriously, Suburbicon is cinematic fiction, but it’s inspired by reality: Levittown

 

just as the seven hundred castles are absolutely real.
Unfinished but real.

The version bouncing around from site to site is that the project has stalled due to the oil crisis and that payments for the more than three hundred castles already sold to Arab buyers have been blocked.

But I honestly do not see these overcharged ones as they move to their mini castle number 511 adjacent to the castle, with a view of castles …

Am I too controversial?

I don’t know, I just can’t make sense of it, or maybe I can’t believe in a real estate project like this, but of course you correct me if I’m wrong!

STYLISTIC SKIN

STYLISTIC SKIN

A few days ago, Antonio was talking about skin on his blog pointing out rightly how in the dialogues of the movie Free Guy skin was literally translated in Italian to the detriment of the real meaning of the term.

The Skins I would like to talk to you about are Costumes Fit for the Battle Royale mode of the Fornite video game signed by Demna Gvsalia  creative director of Balenciaga.

Digital fashion.

It is the first time that haute-couture colonizes a video game with its own brand, in this case it is a partnership between Balenciaga and Epic Games

Ramirez and Doggo among the iconic characters in the version of the luxury brand.

However, a real capsule is also associated with the digital outfits, available on the Balenciaga e-commerce site

The campaign for the presentation of the fruit of this unprecedented collaboration is called Strange times and also includes a photographic contest, or, better said, Fortographic.

 

The best photos posted on Twitter under #Fortography and #StrangeTimes or under the Strange Times post on Reddit will be included in the game.

Between reality and virtual, I throw a dream there: who knows that one day someone will post coffee photos for KCDC …

DUBLIN IS THE SECOND MOST COFFEE-OBSESSED CAPITAL CITY

DUBLIN IS THE SECOND MOST COFFEE-OBSESSED CAPITAL CITY

Quite bizarre title indeed, which obviously caught my eye: Ireland and coffee on the same sentence!

So you will forgive me if I overlook both Amsterdam (in first place) and the fact that the calculation developed by Brew Smartly falls into the extreme WHO CARES category, since they have invented an average between three variables:

Average rating.
Coffee shops per capita (per 100,000 people to take into account different population sizes).
Value of imports per capita (USD).

Find here the table with the total ranking.

In short, to quote “it’s a bit like dancing to math” but it’s still a reason to talk about Dublin and it shouldn’t be wasted laughing

So, for example, I take this opportunity to tell you about an unmissable digital exhibition: The Poetics of Print about the tradition of Irish printing and its role in the development of poetry that you find on the Trinity College library’s site.

Take the time to have look / click on it because it deserves: talking about Dublin has led us to beautiful things even about books.
What if I add another passion of mine?

At the Gaiety Teatre none other than James Joyce: The dead is scheduled and to follow, why not, the world premiere of Bedknobs and broomsticks which, however, I do not I know if I can imagine without the legendary Angela Landsbury aka Mrs. Jessica Fletcher

 

Isn’t it nice to be a little child again?
Then the magic is also knowing how to find atmospheres and stop moments like those in this shot

But let’s go back to the Dublin coffee shops: among the many I have chosen three.

The first for the name: Cloud cafe, and it is useless to repeat (read re-sing) the words I love of Carly Simon’s song, right?

The second because in a completely bizarre way it has as its symbol the manufacturing of footwear, wooden lasts and gestures that I have come to know and that have become part of my life for so many years now: Shoe Lane.
Not to mention the wonderful memory that the Singer machine gives me!

The third comes from a dream: a very stylish vintage van that I obviously envy, even if the logo would have been enough: Cocobrew

The dream has not only come true, but has grown and moved from van Cocobrew to the Temple bar district of which I leave you a look live with the cam while I wait for you to tell me something about Dublin.
