Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Baked Chocolate Cheesecake

Made a chocolate cheesecake after dinner.   I wanted to try again a cheesecake resipe from a cook book but I just couldn't find it and ended up with this one instead.   It is my  1st attempt  and it turned out  well according to my colleagues/friends.  Definitely taking some for line dance friends today. This chocolate cheesecake is just right for  people who do not like a too cheesy taste.  It is a bit flat because I do not have a 9" cake pan.  What  I  have is either an 8" or 10" pan and I didn't decorate the cake as there is no special occasion.

Bye Bye Boston

Boston, my neighbour's miniature pinscher died on Wednesday 20 April 2011early morning.  He is being buried in my neighbour's front yard. He was close to 14 years.  After having suffered a coughing illness for 1 1/2 years he finally bade goodbye.  The flowers were from my garden.

Of course neighbour is heartbroken and mentioned that she will never have another dog again but I told her that life goes on and she should have another one since she lives alone.

Like all small doggies, Boston had the loudest bark.  Good as a ''guard" dog in terms of noise but sometimes his continuous barking was irritating.  He  barked non stop at anyone who passed by but when the person moved towards him, he would run away and cowered in a corner!

Now that Boston is gone, life is not as quiet as one might think.  We have a bigger replacement version in the form of Max, our Labrador who behaves exactly like Boston.  We have to lock him up whenever he makes too much noise.
