… this was delivered yesterday!
It was recommended awhile ago by my friend Fiona (aka Scribbler in Seville) when I was trying to find the English name for a fish I only knew the Spanish word for. It’s a great illustrated catalogue of fish and shellfish that includes several translations, and it also includes over 200 recipes. I have to say that the recipes came as a bonus because I thought I was just buying a reference book. It’s also the first book I’ve bought in ages. What was the last book you bought?
This will make your day.
Something happened this past week that made me realise that sometimes it’s best not to think twice (or in my case, think things to death). Sometimes better just take things at face value and move on. It was kind of a breakthrough for me. Also, I love this song.
This week’s Friday Foto Finder challenge is “insect”…
It turns out that I haven’t got one insect photo! Except for this snail, which many people think are insects but in fact are mollusks (and anyhow, this isn’t even a real snail). And except for these icky galeras below. Which aren’t insects either, but don’t they look like sea bugs? Ick.

Every other time I’ve gone to the Feria in Jerez I’ve spent almost all my time taking photos of the gorgeous horses. This time I spent most of the day drinking sherry in the Gonzalez Byass tent with these lovely people. Well, it was different! And really nice to meet up with old friends again, as well as meet some new ones. But I’m kind of sorry I missed the horses (sorry Beth!). Hope I’ll be able to go again next year.
