Kofi Annan RIP

Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations died aged 80. 17.08.2018.

He opened an Art Exhibition that I participated in representing Ireland at the UN HQ in NYC, "Our World in the year 2000."

I had the great pleasure to meet him and his wife Nana at that time.

May he Rest in Peace.

Arte y Cocina 17.08.2018

Seven years ago - near Torcal.

The Missus: Dolores; The Daughter: Nichola; The Grand Children: Kofi, Rudi, Tully and Loli.

I see that Aretha Franklin died.

Roddy Doyle - Aretha Franklin 16.08.2018

-See Aretha Franklin died.
-All those songs. Jesus, man, she was amazin’.
-Yeah, yeah. I met the missis when there was an Aretha song playin’ – did I ever tell yeh?
-Hang on now – fuck off. Every time a singer dies you tell me you met your missis at one of their gigs or a dance.
-Well, I did.
-I’m not listenin’. 
-You don’t really know me wife. But I’ll tell yeh. You’re never goin’ to woo a woman like tha’ in one three-minute song.
-Yeah – fuckin’ woo. It was never love at first sight, like. It was more like love at twenty-seven fuckin’ sights. I had to win her over. An’ that’s where Aretha comes in.
-Okay = wha’ happened?
-There was a club, a room over a pub, like – just off Capel Street. I can’t remember wha’ it was called. But they only played soul.
-Sounds good.
-It was. An’ anyway, they’re only playin’ Aretha songs this nigh’ an’ I boogie up to the missis, an’ I sing, ‘R.E.S.P.E.C.T.’. Right in front of her, like.
-Wha’ did she do?

Cuevas de Nerja

The history of the Nerja cave.

The caves were discovered on January 12th 1959, by five local boys from the nearby village of Maro. They had spent the night watching bats coming into and leaving a local pothole known as "La Mina" - the mine.
They decided to explore further, chipping away at some of the rocks and stalagmites that blocked the entrance.
What they discovered was nothing short of spectacular. The first large cavern they came across contained several skeletons and ceramics. They had inadvertently stumbled on one of the most important geological finds of our era.
In the words of Professor Jose Luis Sanchidrian, from the University of Cordoba, describing the recent carbon dating of six seal paintings as "an academic bombshell" and having "no parallel in Palaeolithic art.”

Oldest paintings in the world

The six paintings of seals are the only known artistic images created by Neanderthal man.
Their age has been put between 42,300 and 43,500 years old.
