Suddenly a gas-burner shed its light on him. He 
wore a crape hat-band. She was dead, perhaps ? This 
idea tormented Frederick's mind so much, that he hur- 
ried, next day, to the. office of L 'Art Industriel, and 
paying, without a moment's delay, for one of the en- 
gravings exposed in the window for sale, he asked the 
shop-assistant how Monsieur Arnoux was. 

As people cut back on french fries, Burger King is going after what it calls "lapsed users" with new fries that promise fewer calories and less fat. Sarah Nassauer joins Lunch Break to taste-test the new menu item. Photo: Burger King.Burger King gave the new fries a crinkle cut to "mitigate confusion" with its classic fries, which have a straight cut, Mr. Hirschhorn said. They will sell for about 25 cents more than Burger King's classic fries except in kids' meals.

Built on his former estate, it consists of a clutch of bungalows separated by raked gravel. Inside the dimly lighted exhibition hall are a few handwritten pages from “Gitanjali,” Tagore’s most famous poem, and black-and-white photographs of Tagore — a few of him as a dashing young man, but most of an older Tagore with crinkly eyes, looking off into the distance.

Epicurial Europe: Blinis Or Bust in Moscow

Russian cuisine is known to be hearty and heavy on the meat. But Blinis are an exception to the rule.

The huge country is famous for its hearty stew-like soups with chunks of meat inside like Bortsch or Tschi or the fish-soup called Soljanka. And gourmets of course go for the famous red or black Caviar.
But there is a vegetarian option in Moscow -- blinis are pancake like meals, quick and easy and available on every street corner.

blinis 應是錯誤

n., pl. blini.
A small light pancake served with melted butter, sour cream, and other garnishes such as caviar.
[Russian bliny, pl. of blin, pancake, from Old Russian mlinŭ, blinŭ.]

[BLEE-nee] Hailing from Russia, blini (singular, blin) are small, yeast-raised pancakes that are classically served with sour cream and caviar or smoked salmon. Blini are traditionally made with buckwheat flour, although lighter versions combine buckwheat and wheat flours.

我深愛紫薇花,因為白居易,因為相遇得早,更因為這花逸放舒展,栩栩欲飛,開起來轟轟然蓬蓬然,如煙雲,如泉瀑,彷彿就要暈染噴濺過來。那捲皺的花瓣,像柔美的蕾絲縐紗,千層百褶,變幻綺麗(所以英文叫它crepe myrtle,縐紗沒藥),而且薄軟輕盈,「每微風起,夭嬌顫動」,有人因而叫它「癢癢花」或者「怕癢花」,說是一伸手過去,花蕊枝葉疑是呵癢,就會輕輕抖動。這當然是誇張了。

In days of old when the dead were laid out in the parlour of the family home, people, either out of respect or superstition, draped all the mirrors and windows of the house with black crepe. Professional "funeral" operators would begin to prepare for this ahead of time as they noted that there were local people nearing death's door. This gave birth to the term, "crepe hanger" to people who are compulsive worriers, anxious about things that have not yet happened. This "tradition" also gave birth to the use of black crepe for the manufacture of ladies’ mourning dresses, men’s hat bands and arm bands, and funeral wreaths
Mothers who are constantly worried and over anxious about their children, husbands etc when they don't get home on time, and in their mind's eye see them in an accident, hospitalized, dead and themselves standing over a gravesite could be considered "crepe hangers."
