"Meet the man who live without money"
This is scores good points about not making money and things the focus of our existence. I don’t know if I’d be happy to do all my cooking outside on a rocket stove in the Iowa winter, but it would simplify things!
Its really an eye opener..
Paris-based photographer Jonathan Icher looks at the food we associate with various countries in this photo series.
With the help of makeup artist Anastasia Parquet, each person has his or her country’s flag painted on, with the person about to consume the nation’s iconic foods.
We are unsure if this photo series questions stereotypes or shows that food is important to a country’s culture, but these visually-arresting works make us think about how we relate to food.
Q: Larry, does the President have any reaction to the announcement—the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, that AIDS is now an epidemic and have over 600 cases?
MR. SPEAKES: What’s AIDS?
Q: Over a third of them have died. It’s known as “gay plague.” (Laughter.) No, it is. I mean it’s a pretty serious thing that one in every three people that get this have died. And I wondered if the President is aware of it?
MR. SPEAKES: I don’t have it. Do you? (Laughter.)
Q: No, I don’t.
MR. SPEAKES: You didn’t answer my question.
Q: Well, I just wondered, does the President—
MR. SPEAKES: How do you know? (Laughter.)
Q: In other words, the White House looks on this as a great joke?
MR. SPEAKES: No, I don’t know anything about it, Lester.
Q: Does the President, does anybody in the White House know about this epidemic, Larry?
MR. SPEAKES: I don’t think so. I don’t think there’s been any—
Q: Nobody knows?
MR. SPEAKES: There has been no personal experience here, Lester.
Q: No, I mean, I thought you were keeping—
MR. SPEAKES: I checked thoroughly with Dr. Ruge this morning and he’s had no—(laughter)—no patients suffering from AIDS or whatever it is.
Q: The President doesn’t have gay plague, is that what you’re saying or what?
MR. SPEAKES: No, I didn’t say that.
Q: Didn’t say that?
MR. SPEAKES: I thought I heard you on the State Department over there. Why didn’t you stay there? (Laughter.)
Q: Because I love you, Larry, that’s why. (Laughter.)
MR. SPEAKES: Oh, I see. Just don’t put it in those terms, Lester. (Laughter.)
Q: Oh, I retract that.
MR. SPEAKES: I hope so.
Q: It’s too late.
Wow. Just wow.
Unbelievable… This was my senior year in college…
Indian Musicians by Liu Kang | 1972 | National Heritage Board, Singapore
These depicted events and activities of the multi-cultural society he lived in. ‘’Indian Musicians’’ is one such work, depicting Indian traditional instruments. Liu loved music and this is perhaps best seen in his illustration of the musicians reveling in the activity.
At the end of the day, nothing is more important in the world than our environment and our children. May we dedicate ourselves to protecting both. This, my friends, is my favorite Board - I get rejuvenated by seeing the hope and promise of the next generation. http://www.pinterest.com/jimluce/humanity-children/

Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as
I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.
O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.
