Five reasons to ‘de’ your clutter

verdant

(in no particular order)

Freshen energy flows

  • Cleaning and clearing forgotten corners does seem to bring new light and freshness to a space. I think feng shui has a lot to say about this. I’ve certainly found it to be true in my own space.

Rediscover forgotten treasures

  • It is amazing what precious and wonderful things can be found hiding behind piles of no-longer-useful-ness. My last big clean out uncovered some wonderful oddments from my childhood that are now waiting to be turned into a belly dance belt (do watch this space… but don’t hold your breath!) My recent stash sort-out has also re-acquainted me with some lovely fabric friends who are keen to be sewn…

 Clear stagnation

  • This kind of goes with ‘freshen energy flows’, but I do think it deserves its own point. Ruts are very easy things to fall into, but they can quickly turn into festering…

With love..JC!!

Enthralling Ventures!!!

Nonetheless had we thought to visit China ,but any opportunity to be blessed to have a meet & greet JC could not be avoidable!

Similar was the day when destiny turned things for us & we had an exquisite wonder coming across to visit Shanghai & Beijing & all the more ,to be a part of an International event –Celebration of Jackie Chan’s Birthday! A completely not to be missed event.

JC had been a childhood hero for me but to meet him in person was all together so different, It was such a WOW moment, a moment when I felt in love with him once again not as an actor or singer or Martial art champion but as a noble soul, as a loving person, as a person with a motive to work for society.

So it was day 2 @China ,post doing some great excursion tour of Forbidden city ,it was…

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Remember Teddy, the super-computer toy, from the 2001 film “Artificial Intelligence?” Well, Google might be making one.

Earlier this week the company filed a patent for a toy that can control other Wi-Fi-connected devices. This could be one of Google’s creepiest patents yet — especially if movies like “Chuckie” still give you nightmares.

Imagine a teddy bear outfitted with sensors and cameras.

If it senses you’re looking at it, the fuzzy toy will rotate its head and look back at you. Once it receives and recognizes a voice command prompt, you can then tell it to control media devices in your home (e.g. turn on…

World’s oldest deck of cards exhibited in New York

Dear Kitty. Some blog

King, queen and knave cards in oldest deck of cards

This photo shows king, queen and knave (court jester) cards in the oldest deck of cards known in the world.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Deck of cards discovered by Dutchman exhibited in New York

At the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in the coming period a special deck of cards will be on display. It is the oldest complete card game in the world and it has been discovered by an Amsterdam antiques dealer.

Harry Kenter bought the game in 1978 at an auction in Paris. He paid 8,000 guilders. In the catalog it was presented as an incomplete tarot game from the 16th century, but Kenter immediately thought the game was older.

The card game is from Flanders and is called Court Years Hunting Package. Instead of hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs there are hunting pictures on the cards: hunting horns, dog collars, dog…
