1 A most beautiful thing has been happening in Derry, Northern Ireland. A wonderfully intricate 75′ timber Temple has been created by the renowned American artist, David Best, whose creations are set alight during Nevada’s annual Burning Man festival. The remarkable structure was made by Catholics and Protestants working together in peace to honour those who died in the Troubles and was set alight last night.
Do watch the remarkably moving video. I promise you, the time will be worth it. Please, let me know what you think. It moved me to tears.

2 Sometime ago a friend sent me a pattern for a tiny jumper for a new-born and a Beanie hat to match. The charity who were collecting to send these where they were needed has closed but I have found another, KnitzTanzania who replied to me yesterday to say a consignment is just about to leave so if I post tomorrow my little outfits tomorrow, they will go to help save the lives of new-borns in Tanzania where Hypothermia can seriously damage the health of premature and newborn babies in the Tanzanian Highlands. If any of you would like to join me I can post the pattern in my Recipe pages! They are very easy and quick to knit. I made the multi-coloured one with the present of some wool from Larissa when I was recuperating.
3 I was reminded about quinoa by Marilyn the other day and decided to make us a delicious salad for lunch today. I served it with a delicious honey, mustard and soy dressing.
I love this intricate detail from the Temple. Namaste, my dear Readers.
