Macaroni and Cheese

A couple of years ago I made a macaroni and cheese to take to a barbecue in Villiers-Louis, France, deep country. I made this casserole in a sort of can’t be bothered way but the French loved it! …



Bibliothèques, lecteurs et écrivains

Sur un livre perchée


De la bibliothèque d’Alexandrie à la Bibliothèque Nationale de France ou la New York Public Library, les bibliothèques reflètent l’histoire de la civilisation. Espaces publics ou privés, elles sont les cathédrales de l’esprit. À la fois stimulantes et intimidantes, elles constituent le lieu magique et mystérieux de l’imagination, le labyrinthe infini de la pensée, où lecteurs et écrivains puisent inspiration et consolation.
Le cours mettra l’accent sur ​​notre relation aux bibliothèques à travers un parcours littéraire et architectural.

Alliance française de Chicago – mercredi de 19h45 à 21h15

The Meaning of Happiness Changes Over Your Lifetime

Center for Advanced Hindsight

Swinging Happiness for BlogThe following is a scientific and personal article written by CAH member Troy Campbell about happiness.

One lovely afternoon, I began chatting to my grandpa. I was completely unaware he was about to say something that would change my view of happiness forever.

In the middle of our conversation, I felt a lull so I pulled out the classic question. “If you could have dinner with one person, living or dead, who would it be?” I couldn’t wait to talk about my long list of dead presidents, dead Beatles, dead scientists, and a really cute living movie star. But I was also really eager to hear what he’d say.

Then he simply answered, “My wife.”

I immediately assured him it’s not necessary for him to answer like that. We all knew he loves his wife, whom he eats dinner with every night and was currently over in the other room…

The Production of Monsters

The Not Me

george-rodger-empire-state-building-observatory-800x800In 1977, my grandparents took me and my sisters to the top of the Empire State Building. I can remember being annoyed by all the waiting in line just to ride the elevator to the observation floor. We probably spent more time waiting to board that elevator than we spent viewing the view. Still, when our turn came around and after the elevator finally reached the 102nd floor, I burst out of the doors to see what all the fuss was about.

At first, I was too distracted with taking in the view to notice that my grandpa was not with me. When I turned back to search for him, I saw that he had parked himself close to the elevators away from the windows and the view. I called to him, “Grandpa, you gotta come see this.” “No thanks,” he replied “I’m good here.” “Pretty please,” I pleaded. This time he…

Sentar-se em excesso é o cigarro da nova geração

blog da kikacastro


Nuh! A frase do título deste post é pesada, né? Comparar o gesto de sentar-se com o de fumar, que todo mundo já está careca de saber que faz mal para todos os órgãos vitais do nosso corpo, parece um baita exagero.

Mas será?

Ontem, quando eu preparava o post sobre o uso correto do computador, acabei encontrando vídeos que são verdadeiras campanhas contra a cadeira e a favor de ficar de pé mais horas por dia.

E esses vídeos me fizeram pensar. A bem da verdade, alguns dos números e dados trazidos por eles me assustaram.

Vejam vocês que:

  • Segundo um dos vídeos, a gente gasta, em média, 337 minutos sentados diante de um computador no trabalho;
  • Sentados no trabalho sem computador (em reuniões etc) por 97 minutos;
  • Mais 71 minutos trabalhando, só que no computador de casa;
  • Mais 115 minutos sentados diante do computador de casa para uso…

The Secret of Fun

Source of Inspiration


If you are not having fun,
you are not doing something right!
Hate work?
Dread your in-laws coming?
Bored with life?
Terrified by Big Brother possibilities?
Not enough money, too many bills?
How do you break out of this cycle?

Here is the secret:
Become selfish.
Hard to believe, eh?
Do it! If you don’t like your job
Find work that gives you joy.

Surround yourself with
people who make you laugh
inspire you
people you love to be with

God wants us to have fun
to enjoy life, for look at
this amazing world He made.

Make fun a force in your life.
Spread it to others.
Find out what makes you
eager for the next time,
then…just do it!
