Create ~ Cook ~ Capture: Are Food Trucks Safe? (REBLOG)

Are food trucks safe? Depends on who you ask?  We are a house divided.  My husband and I would not answer this question the same.  It is a great way to picnic without needing to pack up your own food.

Hmmm?  Thinking of food trucks as a convenient way to picnic has never occurred to me.  On the plus side, all of my food truck experiences have been very satisfactory.  So I agree with blogger's conclusions.

Movies and Tv Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland : The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire (Reblog)

Well I know that I'm supposed to be tooting my own horn but why can't I toot about blogs I like as well? It's just as much fun reading other people's blogs as it is publishing my own. Re-blogging a link from a super cool entertainment blog that caught my eye.


The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire: [Irish Week] Movies and Tv Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland



Why do I like this blog? It shares entertainment-related tidbits, fun facts, etc. that are of interest to me. I like the post categories; especially “Who Wore It Best?”   

(Loved that contrast photo of Lupita and Beyoncé.  Shared it via my Tumblr.)



I enjoy the “Movie Reviews” category because there are reviews of vintage movies. The publisher uses the word “vintage”. But sometimes we say “movie classics” or “old movies”. 

(I love all things vintage, so I'm happy with the blogger using this descriptive term in lieu of “classic” or “old”.   Shared the review of "Father Goose" via Pinterest where I collect "Everything Vintage". )

Additionally, there are recommendations regarding foreign films (i.e. non-American) and I'm always on the hunt for non-American movies or TV series.


🎬 Movie Review: Your Name. (君の名は。) Your Name. (君の名は。) is a Japanese animated movie, premiered in 2016 and has been written and directed by Makoto Shinkai, who also wrote the novel this anime movie is based on. Fun fact : this movie hit the theatres last year in July in the USA and in August in Japan and managed to become the highest -grossing anime movie, over comin Academy Award winning "Spirited Away".

Celebrating Asian-American Contemporary Artists

Giana Nguyen-Foster is a Vietnamese-American singer/songwriter. We connected via Facebook back in 2011, the same year her debut solo EP, "For Now ", had been released. At that time she was promoting herself by collaborating with other musicians, and performing at shows in the Southern California area.


The Legend Bruce Lee (Nov 27, 1940 - July 20, 1973)

God bless the Internet and especially social networks, bloggers, and online writing communities. So there's this really cool guy - Nathan Bernardo, aka NateB11 - and he is a loyal and devoted martial arts disciple. He knows a lot about MA and writes articles on the topic.


Will The Tiger's Apprentice Ever Be an Animated Film?

Laurence Yep writes books for children and young adults. Many know him for book series calledGolden Mountain Chronicles . Screenwriter David Magee (Finding Neverland (watch trailer) ) was or is (??) adapting Yep's book - The Tiger's Apprentice (Book One) - into a feature film in 3D animation.


Good Fortune: Okyo's Cranes Now on View | Unframed (Reblog)

" ... Maruyama Okyo (1733-95), a painter who revolutionized the practice and taught or influenced generations of Japanese painters." (NOTE: At the time of the posting the paintings were on exhibit; not at the time of this reblogging.) The Okyo artwork motivated me to search for more pictures, photos, and illustrations of cranes.


My Five (5) Good Fortunes

We can all write our fortunes. In my case my daughter wrote 5 good fortunes for me. Her predictions for my future are greatly appreciated and if her advice is heeded no reason why they won't come true. :) Next time you have a party, consider giving out homemade fortune cookies.

Entertainment Blogs: World Music - the Music Journey

Do you enjoy world music? So do I. I used to work in our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. There were two music stores within walking distance from my job, and they were a favorite place to spend my one hour for lunch break. Haven't been in D.C. since 1995 and the name of the stores escape me. But I do remember that they both had a wonderful world music section. In Texas, when we used to subscribe to cable TV, there was a show called “Musical Passport” that we watched often. Took you all around the world showcasing great music!
 



Currently I work from home so I don't get out much to browse the stores any more. Also, we no longer have cable TV. Sure I could shop online but don't always know who to look for. My significant other combs YouTube and finds all kinds of new artists. But I don't have the patience to do that. I have however, stumbled across a blog that specializes in introducing its readers to musical artists from around the world: Germany, Greece, Mali, South Africa, Canada, Hungary, France, Caribbean and on and on and on. You can search this site by names of artists, by countries and/or by genres. As of March 2017, it had over 4000 followers. Their posts date back to 2011. The last post is dated December 2015.  They have so much variety, it makes me dizzy. But I love it!! Why don't you visit? If you love world music, you'll love this blog!

To put it in their words:
Join us on our musical adventure on www.xworldmusic.wordpress.com

Razia Sultana of India

Women Who Ruled: Razia Sultana of India (Posted By Lisa J. Yarde)



Media_http4bpblogspot_ggdfxEXCERPT:

" ...Razia ascended the throne of Delhi at the age of 31. During her four-year reign from 1236, silver coins issued in her name bore her official title "Jalauddin" but she referred to herself as "lmadatun Niwan", which meant the Great Woman. Razia Sultana dressed like a man and rode an elephant through Delhi with her face unveiled....

Legends surrounding Razia have made her popular in Indian culture; the 1983 Urdu film Razia Sultan is a fictionalized account of her life, as is Rafiq Zakaria's novel, Razia: Queen "

**COMMENT: If you want to learn about women in history, this is the best blog ever!! Not only is it visually attractive and appealing, but the posts - so informative, intriguing and fascinating - will never disappoint you.


Book below not mentioned at the blog post, but suggested if interested in other women like Razia, the Queen of India.  It's a picture book suggested for ages 5 and up.  I'm older than 5 which puts me in the "and up" group of readers.  Picture books are wonderful quick reads and are just like a primer on a particular topic.  They usually have great illustrations and the non-fiction books present the info like a quick summary.  It whets your appetite and if you choose to do further research, you can search for books in the Juvenile/Young Adults section of the library for a more mature advanced reading level.
