I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy.

Mark Twain was born in 1835, a year in which Halley’s comet was visible from earth. In 1909, he wrote, “I came in with Halley’s comet…and I expect to go out with it.” Indeed, he did. When he died on April 21, 1910, the comet was again visible in the night sky.

China is the birthplace of the first seismograph. Built in 132 AD by a man named Cheng Heng, it consisted of eight metal dragons holding eight carved balls over eight frog figurines. If an earthquake made the ground vibrate, the dragon facing the quake’s source would drop a ball into the mouth of its corresponding frog.

Poet and pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rosetti loved his wife, Elizabeth. How much did he love his wife, you ask? Well, after she died of a laudanum overdose in 1862, he buried her with the only existing copy of his unpublished poems. Seven years later, however, Rosetti found himself suffering from a really bad case of writers’ block, so he dug up her body and retrieved his poems. They were published in 1870 and were well received by critics, but he never forgave himself for pilfering them from her grave.

Recipe for Horchata de Arroz (Sweet rice beverage)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Horchata (or-CHA-tah) is a milky white, sweet beverage, I LOVE this drink, it is my favorite aguas frescas !!! You can also buy the drink already prepared or in a powder form. I prefer the recipe from El Salvador. The horchata found in El Salvador is primarily made from Morro seeds not rice, but Morro seeds are not available here in Kansas.

Makes 2 quarts

* 2 cups long grain white rice
* 6 cups water
* 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/3 cup sugar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Soak the rice overnight in 3 cups of the water. Add the rice, soaking water and cinnamon to a blender and puree until smooth, 2-3 minutes.
2. Strain into a pitcher through a fine-meshed sieve or several layers of cheesecloth. There should be no grit or large particles in the liquid.
3. Stir in the remaining 3 cups water, sugar and vanilla. Adjust sugar to taste and serve well chilled.

* Substitute 3 cups of milk for 3 cups of the water. Or use evaporated milk for a richer, creamier version.
* Some recipes call for grinding the rice before soaking. Use a spice or coffee grinder to first pulverize the rice. Then add the water to soak. The soaking time can usually be cut in half when following this method.
