Don Pepe of New Jersey
sábado, diciembre 15, 2007

Last Sunday I flew into Newark International Airport, just few miles from New York, for an event with our Global Enterprise team in US. I spent there three days but never really managed to scape to do some shopping or visit Manhattan once more this year.

Only non-working event was going out for dinner. Al took us to Don Pepe, an Spanish restaurant in New Jersey. Sangria and Tapas to start ( kind of ) but my big mistake was to try the Paella ( I should imagine how it was by seeing "chorizo" as one of ingredients, but "curiosity kills the cat" ). Restaurant is nice, tapas eatable but Paella.... worst paella ever. Just no taste, neither in the rice or the "things" added ( which curiously enough were the same they had taken before for tapas ;-)

Yes, I know Paella is something genetic and nearly religious for me, but even the Brits where horrified by how bad it was.

Honestly, I should rather go for the American steak, which looked very good.

Eagle of fire
domingo, diciembre 09, 2007

Once more, a fantastic astronomical image coming from the NASA, in this case the Eagle Nebula

"The dust sculptures of the Eagle Nebula are evaporating. As powerful starlight whittles away these cool cosmic mountains, the statuesque pillars that remain might be imagined as mythical beasts. Pictured above is one of several striking dust pillars of the Eagle Nebula that might be described as a gigantic alien fairy. This fairy, however, is ten light years tall and spews radiation much hotter than common fire.

The greater Eagle Nebula, M16, is actually a giant evaporating shell of gas and dust inside of which is a growing cavity filled with a spectacular stellar nursery currently forming an open cluster of stars. The above image in scientifically re-assigned colors was released as part of the fifteenth anniversary celebration of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope"

Nature wallpapers : Mike Swanson
sábado, diciembre 01, 2007

Through Applesfera I found Mike Swanson's website, where he shares fantastic pictures you can use as wallpaper.

I use my own pictures and sometimes share with other people, but the effort Mike has done to create and maintain this is really incredible.

Thanks Mike !! By the way, amazing photos !
