I thought this is such a cool web site and useful almost everyday as long as you are at home and you want to cook. You click on what you have in your fridge and it tells you what you can cook with those ingredients :) So cool! So I guess you don't need to go to the store everytime your fridge looks empty! You can be creative after all :)

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!!

Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most-requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's,we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

40 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started My Career

1-The career you think you’re going to have? This is not the career you’re going to end up with. The job you went to college for? That’s not the job you’re going to end up with.

2-You will spend a good portion of your work day with nothing to do.

3-Meetings almost never solve anything and never end on time.

4-You will seriously embarrass yourself, and possibly endanger your career at at
least one (and maybe more) of your office Christmas parties.

5-Trusting co-workers can be bad for your career.

6-The movie Office Space isn’t just a comedy.

7-Pay is really about sitting or standing. The more you are sitting, the more you get paid.

8-Having a passing knowledge of current sports events is a critical skill for office small talk.

9-You’re probably way, way overeducated for the job you’re in. A good $30 thousand of those student loans you’re still paying off were wasted.

10-There are plenty more important things in life than your career.

11-You know that 401 k matching plan? It was really a pretty good idea. Grab a calculator. Calculate how much more money you’d have today if you had started contributing the day you were hired instead of 2 years ago when you finally broke down and did it. Now faint.

12-Some workplaces function EXACTLY like high school.

13-The company’s stock will not always go up.

14-Learning to look busy is a valuable survival skill.

15-You’re unlikely to ever meet a happy accountant.

16-No one really takes the time to adequately train you. All new employees are inadequately trained.

17-Upper management is more focused on improving their golf game than improving their company’s bottom line.

18-The mistakes you make are sometimes more valuable than the things you did exactly right.

19-When your career is the only good thing you’ve got going in your life, it’s time to reassess your life.

20-That temporary job you settled for… is it really temporary if you’re still in it after all this time?

21-Turf wars and office politics exist in every office, no matter how small.

22-Be nice to the administrative assistants; they are the key to everything because they keep the world turning.

23-It’s rare that your colleagues are actually smarter than you; it’s all confidence.

24-Old white guys are not old and wise guys.

25-Dear lord, office bathrooms can be gross.

26-You never really get to rest. A career is about always building, always moving forward.

27-Your boss is a human being too.

28-No one will believe in you more than you.

29-And if you don’t believe in you, you’re not going anywhere.

30-Office gossip can be positively deadly.

31-Sometimes the game IS rigged.

32-Lunch - try to never skip it. You do not earn points for working through it and
it helps you stay sane.

33-It IS possible to one day wake up and realize you hate your dream job.

34-You fear taking your eye off the ball, but sometimes that is really what you NEED to do.

35-The car you drive to work is very important. Office workers put a lot of value judgments on fellow workers vehicles.

36-Timing, like location, is literally EVERYTHING.

37-Networking is not just a buzzword: it’s the most valuable thing you can do for your career.

38-Take the lowest paying job with the best job description and title, rather than the best paying job with the worst job title.

39-“Follow-through” is a great characteristic to be known for when you are first hired.

40-Do what you love, even if it pays less than something you’re good at.

COOL MOVIE - Hunting and gathering (Ensemble, c'est tout) Bir Aradayız Hepsi Bu!

harika bi film izledim
audrey tatto nun cooooooooook guzeldi

Camille, an artist and cleaning lady, lives a lonely life in a small attic in Paris. One day she meets the shy postcard salesman Philibert, who lives in a big apartment filled with antique furniture he has inherited. Philibert has arranged his life to have as little contact with the outer world as possible. Instead he lets his lodger, Franck, take care of his shopping and all such things. When Camille becomes severely ill with the flu, Philibert invites her to stay in the apartment as well.

Low-Tech Fixes for High-Tech Problems - Cool advice from NYT

BEHIND the cash register at Smoke Shop No. 2 in downtown San Francisco, Sam Azar swipes a customer's credit card to ring up Turkish cigarettes. The store's card reader fails to scan the card's magnetic strip. Azar swipes again, and again. No luck.
As customers begin to queue, he reaches beneath the counter for a black plastic bag. He wraps one layer of the plastic around the card and swipes it again. Success. The sale is rung up.
"I don't know how it works, it just does," says Mr. Azar, who learned the trick years ago from another clerk. Verifone, the company that makes the store's card reader, would not confirm or deny that the plastic bag trick works. But it's one of many low-tech fixes for high-tech failures that people without engineering degrees have discovered, often out of desperation, and shared.

Today's shaky economy is likely to produce many more such tricks. "In postwar Japan, the economy wasn't doing so great, so you couldn't get everyday-use items like household cleaners," says Lisa Katayama, author of "Urawaza," a book named after the Japanese term for clever lifestyle tips and tricks. "So people looked for ways to do with what they had."

Popular urawaza include picking up broken glass from the kitchen floor with a slice of bread, or placing houseplants on a water-soaked diaper to keep them watered during a vacation trip.

Today, Americans are finding their own tips and tricks for fixing misbehaving gadgets with supplies as simple as paper and adhesive tape. Some, like Mr. Azar's plastic bag, are open to argument as to how they work, or whether they really work at all. But many tech home remedies can be explained by a little science.

Cellphone Losing Charge
If your cellphone loses its battery charge too quickly while idle in your pocket, part of the problem may be that your pocket is too warm.
"Cellphone batteries do indeed last a bit longer if kept cool," says Isidor Buchanan, editor of the Battery University Web site. The 98.6-degree body heat of a human, transmitted through a cloth pocket to a cellphone inside, is enough to speed up chemical processes inside the phone's battery. That makes it run down faster. To keep the phone cooler, carry it in your purse or on your belt.
This same method can be used to preserve your battery should you find yourself away from home without your charger. Turn off the phone and put it in the hotel refrigerator overnight to slow the battery's natural tendency to lose its charge.

Remote Car Key
Suppose your remote car door opener does not have the range to reach your car across the parking lot. Hold the metal key part of your key fob against your chin, then push the unlock button. The trick turns your head into an antenna, says Tim Pozar, a Silicon Valley radio engineer.
Mr. Pozar explains, "You are capacitively coupling the fob to your head. With all the fluids in your head it ends up being a nice conductor. Not a great one, but it works." Using your head can extend the key's wireless range by a few car lengths.

Dry Ink Cartridge
If your printer's ink cartridge runs dry near the end of an important print job, remove the cartridge and run a hair dryer on it for two to three minutes. Then place the cartridge back into the printer and try again while it is still warm.
"The heat from the hair dryer heats the thick ink, and helps it to flow through the tiny nozzles in the cartridge," says Alex Cox, a software engineer in Seattle. "When the cartridge is almost dead, those nozzles are often nearly clogged with dried ink, so helping the ink to flow will let more ink out of the nozzles." The hair dryer trick can squeeze a few more pages out of a cartridge after the printer declares it is empty.

Cellphone in the Toilet
It could happen to anyone: you dropped your cellphone in the toilet. Take the battery out immediately, to prevent electrical short circuits from frying your phone's fragile internals. Then, wipe the phone gently with a towel, and shove it into a jar full of uncooked rice.
It works for the same reason you may keep few grains of rice in your salt shaker to keep the salt dry. Rice has a high chemical affinity for water — that means the molecules in the rice have a nearly magnetic attraction for water molecules, which will be soaked up into the rice rather than beading up inside the phone.
It is a low-tech version of the "Do Not Eat" desiccant packets that may have been packed in the box the phone came in, to keep moisture away from the circuitry during shipping and storage.

Longer Wi-Fi Reach
If your home Wi-Fi router doesn't reach the other end of the house, don't rush out to buy more wireless gear to stretch your network. Instead, build a six-inch-high passive radio wave reflector from kitchen items, like an aluminum cookie sheet.
Follow the instructions at Place the completed reflector — a small, curved piece of metal that reflects radio waves just like a satellite TV dish — behind your Wi-Fi router. It focuses the router's energy in one direction — toward the other end of the house — rather than letting it dissipate its strength in a full circle. No cables, no batteries, no technical knowledge required. Yet it can easily double the range of your network.

Dirty Discs
You need to clean a skipping DVD or CD, but as a bachelor you don't have any sissy cleaning fluids? Soak a washcloth with vodka or mouthwash.
Alcohol is a powerful solvent, perfectly capable of dissolving fingerprints and grime on the surface of a disc. A $5 bottle of Listerine in your medicine cabinet may do the job as effectively as a $75 bottle of DVD cleaning fluid. Also, swabbing your copy of "Lost Weekend" with Stoli instead of fussing with a Discwasher kit is a lot more manly.

Too Much Flash
If your cellphone's built-in camera flash is much too bright, washing out photos, tape a small piece of paper over the flash. Experiment with different colors and thicknesses of paper to tone down the flash from superbright white to a more pleasing glow for evening photos.

Crashed Hard Drive
If — no, make that when — your PC's hard drive crashes and can't be read, don't be too quick to throw it out. Stick it in the freezer overnight.
"The trick is a real and proven, albeit last resort, recovery technique for some kinds of otherwise-fatal hard-drive problems," writes Fred Langa on his Windows Secrets Web site. Many hard drive failures are caused by worn parts that no longer align properly, making it impossible to read data from the drive. Lowering the drive's temperature causes its metal and plastic internals to contract ever so slightly. Taking the drive out of the freezer, and returning it to room temperature can cause those parts to expand again.
That may help free up binding parts, Mr. Langa explains, or at least let a failing electrical component remain within specs long enough for you to recover your essential data.
That's the spirit of folk remedies: They may or may not work, but what have you got to lose?

COOL BOOK " EAT, PRAY, LOVE" by Elizabeth Gilbert

Burada meshur olan bir kitap var, adı Ye,Dua Et ve Sev. Ingilizceside Eat,Pray and Love. Yazari Elizabeth Gilbert. Biliyorsun son zamanlarda Yoga butun dunyada cok ilgi duyulan bir alan oldu. Bu kitapta da kahramanimiz Italya,Hindistan ve Endonezyo'ya gidiyor. Daha kitabi okuma asamasindayim ama ilgimi bayagi cekti.




“If a more likable writer than Gilbert is currently in print, I haven't found him or her...Gilbert's prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible, and makes the reader only too glad to join the posse of friends and devotees who have the pleasure of listening in.” by Jennifer Egan


“An engaging, intelligent and entertaining memoir…her account of her time in India is beautiful and honest and free of patchouli-scented obscurities.” by Lev Grossman


“Gilbert’s journey is full of mystical dreams, visions and uncanny coincidences…Yet for every ounce of self-absorption her classical New-Age journey demands, Gilbert is ready with an equal measure of intelligence, humor and self-deprecation…Gilbert’s wry, unfettered account of her extraordinary journey makes even the most cynical reader dare to dream of someday finding God deep within a meditation cave in India, or perhaps over a transcendent slice of pizza.” by Erika Schickel


Gilbert (The Last American Man) grafts the structure of romantic fiction upon the inquiries of reporting in this sprawling yet methodical travelogue of soul-searching and self-discovery. Plagued with despair after a nasty divorce, the author, in her early 30s, divides a year equally among three dissimilar countries, exploring her competing urges for earthly delights and divine transcendence. First, pleasure: savoring Italy's buffet of delights — the world's best pizza, free-flowing wine and dashing conversation partners — Gilbert consumes la dolce vita as spiritual succor. 'I came to Italy pinched and thin,' she writes, but soon fills out in waist and soul. Then, prayer and ascetic rigor: seeking communion with the divine at a sacred ashram in India, Gilbert emulates the ways of yogis in grueling hours of meditation, struggling to still her churning mind. Finally, a balancing act in Bali, where Gilbert tries for equipoise 'betwixt and between' realms, studies with a merry medicine man and plunges into a charged love affair. Sustaining a chatty, conspiratorial tone, Gilbert fully engages readers in the year's cultural and emotional tapestry — conveying rapture with infectious brio, recalling anguish with touching candor — as she details her exotic tableau with history, anecdote and impression."

Here's a website about, hmmm, I can't exactly define what it's about, but a broad cross-section of design, technology, architecture, advertising, photography, furniture, contemporary visual arts, fashion; I guess about all the things that I find "cool" :) It has a very engaging layout that updates daily. There are also a bunch of more specific sister sites listed up top (like liquirious for specialty cocktails, notcouture on fashion etc.)

Great to spend a few minutes a day to see what's happening out there:

This is the best money management tool I've ever used. Quicken came with my desktop when I bought it several years back and hooked up some of my accounts but not all worked. And I don't use my desktop everyday so it would be hard to track everything on a frequent basis. Recently Quicken came up with the free online version but there were some major issues with the software. It just didn't work. So far works with every single bank that I have accounts with and user interface is very intuitive. Also it automatically categorizes all transactions. Every now and then you have to manually choose what bucket transaction falls into but it's no problem at all. Unfortunately currently this website only works in US. Here are some of the awards they received from Major media sources:

COOL BOOK "The Dance of Connection"

''The Dance of Connection: How to Talk to Someone When You're Mad,Hurt, Scared, Frustrated, Insulted, Betrayed, or Desperate'' by Dr. Harriet Lerner

This is one of the very useful self help books which I loved. I got this as a birthday present. This book is for the people who have a problem to express their thoughts and feelings when they are mad,hurt, scared, frustrated, insulted, betrayed or desperate. Think about mom, dad, your siblings, close friends, your spouse, kids. When you remain silent about your thoughts and feelings and shut your mouth you do it in the expense of your close relationship with your parents,siblings etc.



Here's my first contribution to the group:

I love cooking.
I love taking photos.

Here are two sites that have wonderful recipes with mouth-watering photos:

Updated a few times a week, these are great sites to take a look at before leaving work to get some inspiration for dinner.
