I simply do not like the fact of having constantly commercial campaigns telling you when and what to buy every single day. I am not into shopping at all (just me) and following indications either.

Only 1 day after Halloween we already have Christmas adds on TV!  even one asking us to plan our shopping for 2016! wow… we said at home “that is proper planning” 😀

Well, not everything is bad, James Lewis stores are famous for the beautiful campaigns they create for this period of time and must say they are fantastic and touching.

This is the last one called “Man on the Moon” with a incredible message about elderly people facing loneliness.

Considering that the numbers are indicating that we are getting older, more that ever and the younger population is slowing down; so we are facing a bunch of problems.

But loneliness is causing a massive impact into elderly people (long list but mainly depression). Thankfully some people in different parts came with brilliant ideas like putting a kinder garden and nursing home together with excellent results.

So please have a look at the multiple articles like this one and spread the idea to get more of them in place.

This campaign in UK to stop loneliness is fantastic.

Here is a test if somebody wants to have a quick check.

And please do something to help 🙂

In my sweet home there is a tradition since we live together in the same house; a truly nice one I have to admit.

Today and only today is the final of the tv serie produced by the BBC, The Great British Bake Off, and one more time we squeeze our bodies around the tv surrounded by home made cakes, wine and delicatessen. We scream a lot too!

So, let’s say is a perfect evening to welcome the cold days coming ahead with good food, drinks and excellent company.

I have to admit that I am a complete disaster at baking; I have proved that I can built my own house with bread as it is impossible to be eaten 😀 hard like a stone!

So here I am again praying to survive this final again (indirect competition at home). But I found this fantastic recipe that looks amazing and simple even for inexpert bakers level kinder garden like me.

So, I hope you can have a try yourselves and get messy with this tough floral design 😀

This link will give you additional tips if you really want to eat flower in your own and some of the benefits of eating flower.

There is nothing more pleasant that having good ideas and a fantastic sense of humour. This is a clear example.

In Mexico from where piñatas are coming from, people try different options and this creations are made to celebrate something special in family or friends.

But in some parts of the country, these piñatas are used to protest and show discontent in specific aspects in the society. Like football players scoring against the National team in the World Cup.

The piñata was created to represent the destructions of sins but it turned into something more enjoyable.

This video bring a fantastic therapy for those, who work in a office and feel like giving fee massage to some colleagues 🙂

The piñatas can be used as part of a creative way to release stress and pull lots of creativity at the same time.

Piñatas can be made of recycled material so we can educated people how to re-use that piece of paper that is going to the bin one more time 🙂

So, let’s try it and enjoy it!

Of course it was an April fools stunt. But what if it was real?

Those brewers at Sam Adams decided they’d have a bit of craic with their April Fool’s joke by creating HeliYUM -a new beer kegged with He instead of CO2.

In his “HeliYum beer” Adam announced that, instead of carbon dioxide to create the fizz, he had used the Helium gas in the beer. In the video, as an additional effect, the new beer gas also created a funny atmosphere by affecting the voice of beer tasters. Now, I certainly didn’t like the idea of using Helium to keg beers because I’m very touchy when it comes to wasting the precious gas – Helium. Why? Well, read this Helium article I wrote some time back.

Helium and Science of the Fake Beer.

Even like that I would love to try it 😀

I started this blog for a simple reason “to quit coffee” but I didn’t manage it 😀 so here are some amazing ideas if you are like me and you want to try something cool and complicated and share it with people.
