ABOUT ME

I love good food, good science, good mood, good company and nearly any music! Second hand shops. And I love my vegetable garden :)

PHILOSOPHY

I have some: - where 2 are fighting 2 are guilty - what you give is what you get - work hard, but know what you are working on. (extension of the last one: Money and work are the means, not the goal.)
