    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    **Hate makes you impotent, Love makes you crazy. Somewhere in the middle you can survive.**

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    Lol - experimenting is the key to discovering new combinations of flavours, but on this occasion I'd have done without any cheese, and just enjoyed the pasta 'as is'.

    If you knew how it was produced on farms (I've watched it being done, when the goats were being milked), then you'd know *exactly* what makes the resultant cheese taste acidic!

    My daughter's request is often Goat's Cheese and Pea Risotto. It's a lovely dish to be fair. Just a simple 'white' risotto base using Chicken or veg stock, fresh or frozen garden peas, half and half freshly grated parmesan and soft goat's cheese. The finishing touch is important though, a sprinkling of fresh mint bring it all together. Always goes down a treat.

    In a risotto, I could see how it could work. Still wouldn't be my thing, though. Often the 'best quality' goats cheese is the one that tastes most of wee [oops, sorry, acid]!

    It's aroma of 'rancid undies' is admittedly an acquired taste!

    Haha.... Caused by what's affectionately known as 'flap foam' [which subsequently causes gusset rot]

    Had a bit of a go at the car today, cleaned front seats with foam cleaner, had a look at the spark plugs and distributor, cleaned up a bit under the bonnet.

    Fancied something to eat after that, not to take too long though.

    Fish and potatoes from Aldi.

    Frozen veg from Morrisons.

    I think the plates were from Woolworths, about 40 years ago!

    Had a little butter on the potatoes and some lemon on the fish.
