Legend has it there is always a reason why two souls meet. ~ N.R. Hart
The tale of Beauty and the Beast is an allegory which has as much relevance today as it did when it was written in 1740, in French. (La Belle et le Bête) In fact this tale is just a retelling of many earlier stories that go back at least as far as 4,000 years ago.
In the tale a beautiful and kind young woman, we shall call Belle, is forced to live with a real Beast, (of some description, or type of wolf, or mythical creature, or bull), who constantly wants to have sex with Belle ~ which she not unnaturally refuses, (that would be real bestiality).
It transpires that the Beast is as rich as any King.
Money is power. Power is an aphrodisiac. ~ Felix Dennis
However, after spending several months in the lap of absolute luxury, being treated like a princess by the Beast and his servants, having her every whim catered for, and with an endless wardrobe of gorgeous clothes, shoes, and jewelry to wear, the beautiful young Belle finds an excuse to abandon the beast. (For multifarious reasons, including a young, handsome lover ~ depending on which version of the tale you are reading).
Lost in his unrequited love for Belle, the Beast sickens in body, mind and spirit ~ isolates himself in some garret, or cave, or tower, and prepares to die.
After a while, wracked by guilt, or bored with her younger lover, or broke, Belle goes back to the Beast, finding the heartbroken monster in a terrible state. Playing the dutiful partner, Belle nurses the Beast back to health, and they both return to their previous glittering lifestyle.
Even today, almost this exact same scenario is played out time and time again when a beautiful, exotic young woman dates / has a relationship with / marries some pretty ordinary looking / ugly much older man ~ and he will be fucking wealthy.
They seldom live happily ever after.
I’ll give you one example, the poisoned dwarf Bernie Ecclestone, (the billionaire ex-head of F1 motor racing), and his then wife gorgeous, much taller, Tamara.
If money goes before, all ways do lie open. ~ Shakespeare
Some say that money can’t buy you love. And, that a sexually mature woman will want your love, time, attention, and money. All I know is that enough money changes everything.
every good girl has a bad girl streak
it just depends if he can awaken her beast
If you want to be safe, chose a safe, uninteresting man.
sexual beauty provokes absolutely
Don’t post anything online that you don’t want the whole world to see.
Today I have 2,200 followers. How cool is that?
Unlike Trump, I don’t continually upset those who read my stuff.
When I write here,
I merely follow my instincts
The Earth has music, for those who listen. ~ Shakespeare
haunting music of the wind
drifts over the wilderness
the only roof, the stars
the desert is bleak and beautiful
a fine place for outdoors living
not as comfortable as a patio
Sitting beneath the moon and stars, with a glass of wine and thou.
To kiss you, and remember what love is.
smell the roses
feel the fire’s warmth
and talk so softly with thou
She who is possessed by carnal desire for the serpent is lost.
Dawn, and smell the sulpher from the dragon’s breath as she purred
Her Life is a journey of imagined adventures, so lie back and enjoy the ride
Eat a marijuana cookie explore the inner Cosmos to see the rainbow serpent
Experimenting playing with psychedelic substances has always been her forte
Smiling as she watches the kaleidoscopic mordant rainbows melt and change
Reality is an illusion, real life is what she thinks in the strange deranged moment
No angels in bright, white raiment there, only darkly amorous vampyres play
At night, cats are black, vampyres are dark, except for the ones you mirror watched
Lazily, indolently, intoxicated, she dallied with a dulcimer as my heart was shattered
Venus was breaking, creating lust; then she said with laciviousness falsely enamored ~
if you want to prove your love, then bring me the head of the mirrored dragon
Or dead red roses in the hard midnight rain
Why think rationally? Common sense never had fair maiden
and fear never won the day
Neither in her canopied bed, nor even at the dismal end of a misted swamp
Bitter better man never gets chance to play with carnal women and absinthe
She’s beautifully dangerous, I desire her this moonlit night, and she is not patient
There are never certainties, nothing a man can ever trust, there is only useful myth
It could be worse, if the iron dice roll, may the Goddess help me
When she fails, take me back to Liars Bar again, finally
a vampyre will always bite
dragons burns, and women lie
et une belle biche, elle est gratuit
Chasing Imagined Dragons, she’s one part brave, one part a sorceress.
I know a woman who likes snakes, octopuses, and probably chasing dragons.
She likes psychedelic art, abstract spiral trees, and abandoned buildings.
But then, I like, love, and adore exotic, weird, mysterious women.
Just perhaps, this strange song and weird video are for her.
Please listen responsibly.
never kiss a Goddess holding a snake
and never look into their eyes
A sirloin, medium-rare, is not only an entrée, it is a philosophy.
I supposed I could have called this post Entrées, but for me that conjures up an image of something served in a high-end restaurant, preferably in Florence, or some other magical city. In that kind of place, choosing the correct wine is just as important as making an inspired choice of food.
However, if you’re lucky enough to find a really good restaurant, them you can probably rely on the sommelier to give you some appropriate advice. For wines to drink with a sirloin steak try a cabernet or merlot, unless you’re in Italy, in which case you want a really good Tuscan red or maybe a quality Barolo ~ the King of Wines. (But beware, a great Barolo can be hideously expensive.)
If you want to know how to cook the perfect sirloin steak, look no further than this link.
Our first entrée this week is by Tiffany at Creme de la Crumb, and she has the BEST ultra tender instant pot pork tenderloin, with a balsamic glaze. This cut of pork is an excellent source of Protien and lots of vitamins and minerals, and it isn’t at all fatty. You know what? I love a good pork tenderloin.

Next, from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest, there’s this delicious looking honey butter blackened scallops with herby polenta. I think scallops are fabulous, and I love the way Tieghan cooks them here ~ I’m still willing to be convinced as far as polenta is concerned.

Another shellfish recipe, this time from Sheryl Julian via Simply Recipes ~ spring scampi with peas and mint, served on a bed of pasta. Looks great for a midweek dinner, or if you have guests at a weekend. This is a pretty easy dish, and would be fabulous if you have a lemon tree and mint in your own garden.

Broccoli is really good for you, if you want to be healthier, then eat more broccoli. Chungah at Damn Delicious offers us this easy sheet pan recipe for beef and broccoli. Allegedly this is the easiest beef and broccoli dish of your life; Chungah says it doesn’t get any easier or quicker than this.

Your collection this week is from Great British Chefs, who offer us some great beef sirloin recipes; including this fantastic roast sirloin of beef with mushrooms, brandy, and roasted potatoes from Marcus Wareing. Admittedly this dish takes two-and-a-half-hours, but doesn’t it looks fabulous. Allegedly, it was King Henry VIII who named this cut of beef Sir Loin.
As an accompliment to your entrée Heather Christo has this utterly brilliant spring cobb salad, which looks absolutely fabulous.

The truth doesn’t change just because you don’t want to hear it.
Wheat is routinely sprayed with a chemical that will give you cancer.
Glyphosate is legally classified as a carcinogen, and glyphosate is the main active ingredient of a weedkiller called Roundup. A federal jury in California found that Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide was a substantial factor in causing Edwin Hardeman’s non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Monsanto, which is owned by the German chemicals company Bayer, is facing more than 9,000 similar lawsuits. We all know that German chemicals companies have a very dark history. In recent times the evil corporation Monsanto / Bayer has bullied scientists, suppressed evidence, and hid the cancer risks arising from Roundup / Glyphosate.
Even the US Environmental Protection Agency is not immune to collusion with Monsanto ~ the EPA lied when they stated that glyphosate is probably not carcinogenic to humans. Monsanto knowingly lies when they say that Glyphosate has excellent environmental features….. and extremely low toxicity to mammals, birds, and fish. Roundup was introduced in 1974, is used in 130 countries, to control weeds and improve the yield of more than 100 crops. Every damn year in the USA, over 300 million pounds, (150,000 tons), of Roundup are sprayed on the crops you eat, especially wheat corn, soya, and canola, (from which we get the shit called canola oil).
People will have Roundup ready soya whether they like it or not. ~ Ann Foster, spokeswoman for Monsanto.
That means that a hell of a lot of the everyday products you eat and drink are contaminated with a deadly, carcinogenic poisonous chemical. Eating bread, cakes, cookies, anything with flour in it, anything with high fructose corn syrup in it, drinking beer with grains in it, using canola oil, are all seriously damaging your health. Eat bread, drink beer, and be ill before you die sooner than you should.
There are more damn good reason that you shouldn’t eat bread; gluten sensitivity, wheat allergy, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and heart disease. Bread is not the staff of life, bread is a killer food.
High fructose corn syrup will also kill you though; heart disease, obesity, cancer, dementia, liver failure, fatty liver, bad teeth….. And, the average American consumes more than 60 pounds of this shit every damn year. High Fructose Corn Syrup, and Cane Sugar are not the same thing, and the body handles them differently ~ cane sugar is safer, but more expensive.
Some pray, and give us our daily bread. And some say that Roundup is completely safe to fish, birds, animals, and humans. All I know is that I won’t eat shit.
there are a hundred reasons why Marmaduke shouldn’t eat canned crap
The first day of spring,
when a young man’s fancy lightly turns to love and sex.
Most very masculine men think about sex all the time.
But Spring is a really nice time of year to be with your lady-love.
The vernal equinox will be at 21:58 Greenwich Mean Time today, 20 March 2019.
some say that;
mature women also think about,
love and sex, all the time
