Thought for Today - All Anger is Self-Anger

What are you recognizing in others, who behaves in ways that irritate you most? Remember; when you make things personal what others say or do, it becomes something you have to deal with, if you like it or not.

Mary's Dinner Club Stories - Austrian Dinner Club and Birthday Treat

mary's dinner clubSaturday’s Austrian Dinner Club at Art Bistro Agora was really a belated birthday treat for myself - I had celebrated ‘my special day’ on Thursday. The drinks on the day itself at the same venue had been absolutely lovely with many dear friends stopping by my new venue. I enjoyed catching up, sipping sparkling wine and nibbling on chips.

On Saturday it was time for something more substantial and as I told some friends, in Austria we eat Goulash year round, hot or cold out. Goulash with dumplings to me is always a special treat even though considered quite ‘common’ food back home, to me it’s a real birthday meal. To the guests it was also a treat and both the vegetarian potato version and the beef version were much appreciated.

I had been undecided about starters and when my physics teacher from looong ago with whom I have recently reconnected asked via Facebook about it I told him so.
