More Dukan diet

No pictures, because no stunning results yet despite what the book says. The French must have a different metabolism. I am hungry, want vegetables and fruit and some fiber would make me feel better too. Something has got to give or the book will be for sale ......

Last night I was looking at my pictures from Japan in 2009. It brought back so many great memories. The trip to Kamakura from Tokyo was just amazing. Here are some pictures:

These statues of are in the Hase Kamon Temple: a temple to help the souls of unborn children, to help their soul to salvation.

This Buddha is 13 meters high. May peace be with you

Ok, summer's coming, and we 're off to Maui soon. I can't help but think about bathingsuits. That brings up the dreaded moment of looking in the mirror and realizing that things do change.... I bought the Dukan diet book. Very interesting and it seems it may be worth trying. Anyone heard of this? I am not sure if ALL the French are thin but I mat test this one.

Spring and Floriade

Friday the weather was weird and winterlike, And then today it turned stunning!!!!
It made me me think about Holland and Floriade. Floriade is a horticultural event, held every 10 years. This year it is in Venlo, in the south. Wouldn't it be fun to hold a meeting here?

Photoshop exercise

I have been playing with photoshop and Nancy has been so kind to help me each time when I am stumped! I loved her photograph of the 4 sunsets. She sent me her sample to show my how she did this. Here is my little homework project!
