social networks, what means like on Fb?

It's a message I just received from Facebook. It says in english, we're glad you shared your life with people you appreciate on FB.

Here some photos your friends liked 22.000 times (in total sure). waouh!


NB a friend recently asked me what is a "like" being new on Facebook? Oh okay he is a french guy, doesn't speak english, so I said a "like" is what you should send to a friend posting a picture or video or what ever you like too.

here for instance the picture in the middle of Fb message

Bourgogne du Sud, grilles en fers forgés XIXth century.

Do you know what's a KSAR ?

A ksar is a fortess in the sand desert. This one on the pic is Draa Ksar. This mysterious and rumbling down fortress is said to have been built in the Sahara desert at a time there was a trading semitic road to cross the most unfriendly place on earth still is. Unless you know exactly where to go and what to do, like hermit, writer, thinker a catholic monk and aristocrat Charles de Foucault, who lived and died in the deep south of Sahara desert, alone. rmf

a SHELFIE is a selfie but showing bookshelves in lieu of portrait

I always loved books, book covers and study rooms even bookstores and public libraries. Books delivered me from a normal upper-middle class / bourgeois entourage type of life as I was a toddler and wide-opened the doors of mystery of an other kind of life.

Now the shelfie is a beautiful idea to get people to like books and bookshelves

Madam Batholdi and son.

What can we say about this image, taken in Paris at the time the french sculptor Bartholdi was finishing his more than a landmark head of the statue de la liberté, later a gift to NYC?

mobile_picturemy coffee corner photo roberto
as you know coffee is an essential item in the day of an Italian. My last acquisition is a dream glass coffee maker, I chose Hario, the Japan maker for the quality of the glass. I drink freshly brew bio Popayán coffee bean, soft, so lightly acid you won't feel it, clear but fruitful in flavor. #popayàn, #hario #coffeeglassmaker

Provence is magic

quand lou blad vèn bèn, tout vèn bèn,
this Provence lore is bound to its italian past and roots, and I can say some traditions are inherited from roman time like this one "When corn grows well, everything goes well"
So at Saint Barb, the 4th of december, we put corn seed in a round plate and wait for it to sprout which meams that if it grows when is cold outside and nature looks a little bit dead around, corn and cereals will grow later in the year ... then it became a tradition at xmas time to have some corn sprout on the dinner table with a red ribbon, bringing fortune all along. foto Aaron Vintage
