Shoepeg Corn Casserole ...

Here's what you will need:

4 Cans of Shoepeg Corn
1 Stick of Butter

is all up to your & your taste,  This is a perfect amount for me & adds such a great flavor to the recipe.

Happy Birthday: John Lennon

 On the 9th of October 1940 John Lennon was born, Today he would of turned 70,  While we have millions of memories & reminders of John Lennon, You can actually legally be part of one in Prague, Czech Republic ~ Where you can find the

The Lennon Peace Wall came about shortly after John Lennon was killed in 1980.  Under communism it morphed into an impromptu protest space.  The secret police tried to stop the graffiti writers, but every day the wall seemed to be covered with new messages extolling the virtues of John Lennon instead of that other "Lenin."  -Frommer's


ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE!!! 


So if you happen to be walking around & enjoying Prague, Seek out the Lennon Peace wall.  It's worth the effort to find this hidden gem.



Time you enjoy wasting,
-Was not Wasted! ~ John Lennon

Budapest Metro ~ EasyPeasy


Getting around Buda & Pest is easy with the Metro system they have... You have 3 choices, Underground Sub, An above ground Tram or the Busses...


We purchased a 3 Day tourist card & loved that we could hop around town without having to stop & purchased anything else...

You can purchase a 1, 3 or 7 day tourist cards, They are only good for the BudaPest area, so if you are taking a day trip, You'll have to purchased an AddOn.

Also these tickets are NOT good for the Funicular, that is Extra as well!
The Metro stops are easily identified...



There are 3 Official lines in Budapest. . Metro 4 will be Officially UP & Running soon.

IS The Water safe to drink?



The Better Half, Testing the Water!!
Heading to another country? Do you google...
"Is the Tap Water safe to drink??"


Do you? So Do I... Good to know!


Heading to Hungary, I had to google this tid bit of information:
Well, Is it... ? The answer is YES!!! Not only is the tap water safe to drink... We hear you can drink it straight from the Statues in town.. (He never got sick)
Okay, to me that is pushing the limits of a Safe & Fun holiday... but The Better Half decided to test the theory!
We actually saw several folks filling up their water bottles from the fountains in town..


You notice you do not see me drinking from any of these fountains, Like I told the better half. . . . When they have fountains dispensing WINE, Then I'll Drink!!!

Do you know your water?

So,  were standing in front of a Wall of Water ~ 


Has it happened to you??  


     "Which one do you want?"   I ask my Better Half...  
"I don't care, Pick One"  He says.....


In Budapest, You have to pick your water according to the color of the lid...!!!

Good to know,  I would like to Thank the gentleman who explained this to me at the local Spar Supermarket the other day,    As a normal American, I'm pretty much used to flat water, (No Bubbles)  In Europe you have choices:

This is where the Lids come into play:

Blue:  Fizzy, Gas, Carbonated

Green:  Less Fizzy, Less Gas, Mild Carbonation

Pink:  Flat!!

Now you know,  Hope I could help!

Don't even get me started on trying to find Coffee Filters.... Wow, Really?

We will stop here now, for WORDS!

Greetings from Buda~Pest...

This is a fantastic city....
Beauty & History everywhere..

Yesterday we did our 1st official tour... We enjoy taking English speaking tours, while in other countries, It always provides a sense of humor. I am by no means making fun of the Tour Guides skill or use of the English language mind you, It's much better than my Hungarian, I just find it somewhat entertaining...



Today was no different, Every time we stopped Andrea our Tour Guide would say
"We will stop here now for words"
This phrase now will become part of our vocabulary, Just like when we were in Germany & the TourGuide apologized to us for the:

"JAM TRAFFIC"

Or just like in Buenos Aires everything was:

"VERY IMPORTANT"


Andrea knew her history & we enjoyed her tour very much:
It especially tickled us when Andrea would state:

"In every War.. Hungary has always picked the wrong side"





I found the History of the Kings of Hungary very interesting. . Saint Stephen 975 to 1038 was the 1st King of Hungary is pictured above....

Isn't the Better Half Cute!





That is all for now, ....
