I think sometimes that it’s the jokes that show the peak and peak purpose of humanity. To spend time making each other happy. I saw this on Twitter:
From WikiPedia A Mozartkugel is a round sugar confection made of pistachio marzipan and nougat covered with dark chocolate. It was originally known as Mozart-Bonbon, created in 1890 by Salzburg confectioner Paul Fürst (1856–1941) and named after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

I watched this woman sketching on the street in Cambridge during the Mill Road Winter Fair. She was drawing in her sketchbook whilst looking at the people across the road at a food stall. I am pretty sure she is in the Urban Sketchers Meetup group because I spoke with another sketcher further along the road and he told me the group members were dotted about. As you can see, this first image is a […]
