Saturday Sweets & Sockerbit NYC

(Saturday Candy) Lördagsgodis in Sweden


 Today is Saturday. And for kids and adults throughout Sweden that means one thing. Lördagsgodis "Saturday candy" Americans have Saturday morning cartoons, Swedes have Saturday candy.
 And this is engrained in just about every sugar craving person, I remember when we first visited the US trying to keep the Saturday candy tradition alive. That didn’t fly for too long, unfortunately. But at the same time, Swedish candy is just so much better than American candy (yep! it is)

 Therein lies the origin of lördagsgodis. Saturday candy was invented so as to placate the masses. Because to deny children the sugary goodness of Swedish candy is darn near criminal, but to feed them as much as they want every day of the week results in a over-sugared, toothless/toothache and eventually, very unhealthy population. So the Swedes decided that one day out of the week would be mandated as candy day. And what better day than Saturday? And so it stuck. Obviously. You can look it up.
 Now just to be clear, plenty of candy gets eaten on other days of the week. Saturday is just the big one.

I must admit that Americans have better cookies than us.
I was totally transformed to the blue hairy Cookie Monster instead of being "me" the colorful AKA Candy Monster.

I've always taught of opening a Swedish Candy store in the States and other places in the world. I always wondered why none had done it? since all who taste it outside of SWE loves it.

Well surprise surprise... Sockerbit NYC is in the building! and has been for a little while, another bright head have tought about this. 
Now all of you New Yorkes could enjoy some sweetness out of Sweden.
Make It Work!








 Try adding a little variety into your pile with Swedish sweets from the newly opened Sockerbit. The Village Voice divvied all the details of the Swedish candy store that's been long overdue to open. Inside you'll find a completely white interior, with shelves hanging off the walls and filled to the brim with Swedish candies that most Americans won't recognize.
There are approximately 100 kinds of treats stocked at Sockerbit, running the usual gamut of hard and gummy candies, licorice, yogurt-covered treats and molded marshmallows, according to TheVillage Voice.
Pricing goes by weight, at $13 a pound, so you're free to mix and match however you like to scoop.

Poetry - Heart Land

Lord in Heaven
friend of mankind,

speak for the voiceless,
bear forth the blind
into the heartland
where compassion reigns
and the courts dispense peace
till the freedman regains
his sense of self worth
and dignity.
Let us emulate you,
till all men are born free.

Beautiful Syria

Syria - the Cradle of Civilization and the Gateway to History
Often called the Cradle of Civilization and the Gateway to History, Syria has played a core role in the history and development of civilized man. However Syria's natural boundaries did nothing for the security of the land. Its strategic location made it vulnerable and many invaders were able to conquer Syria. It has been a great crossroad for trade between the Mediterranean and the East; it exported the Alphabet to the West and has been linked to Religion from the beginning, from the Semitic Deities to the monotheistic faiths.
Damascus,"City of Jasmine" the world's oldest inhabited city.
Syria is often described as the largest small country in the world because of its wealth of ancient civilizations. You will feel that history comes to life in Syria.


 Let us all strive for peace In the land called Middle East, Let Syria Live.

Taking A Break From You My Love


I'm Breaking Up with my so loved "dark lip" I'm going to miss you (buuhuu) but don't you worry my dear, you will be back in fall. So long - until we meet again. Time for some brightness.

(also brows going back to black)

One Man Wrote...

Riddle me this, you give your all and all to the one you love yet don't get back what you deserve...yet you cling to hope of love changing that one... we so desire to be loved and our love accepted by the one we commit to, oh my fault that's my dream, I wont hate those who have crushed my heart but I will use it to make me stronger, I wont think there's no real love out there because I know I can not be the only one looking for that mate, my rib, my partner, my wife, my queen not my forerunner nor my back bone (sorry LADIES I have that in Christ Jesus my Lord and yes, my Saviour), but the companion I will build not only my house with but more so my legacy, a positive powerfull inpact on the world that will be carried on through many. I am married to a bride that none can compare to....
And now for as long as my Lord permits me to live I desire her to have as the woman I will learn to fight for, and die to keep safe, keep content, make happy, comfort, ride and fly with. She's out there some where but where, if you know her tell her what I said and that I'm waiting for her!
