October 3, is National Caramel Custard Day & National Techies Day

Quote of the Day
“I think love is caramel. Sweet and fragant; always welcome. It is the gentle golden colour of a setting harvest sun; the warmth of a squeezed embrace; the easy melting of two souls into one and a taste that lingers even when everything else has melted away. Once tasted it is never forgotten”. Jenny Colgan

It’s a sad day to hear what has happen in Las Vegas yesterday when waking up and hearing the news with the shooting and the death count now 59 with hundreds wounded. Let’s take a moment and pray for Las Vegas and the people who lost loved ones.
