The coding and the skin for my blog's website were completed by Mario a few years ago. He had worked relentlessly to get the features as I wanted to have them and helps me out with any coding matter that arises.

Since then, I have enjoyed writing and publishing short and longer posts, in different categories. Many of you have also provided me with constructive comments/feedback and thus assisted me on this journey.

Being an avid learner and always scientifically curious, I still look forward to your constructive messages and notes for "It is good to rub and polish our brain against that of others" - Michel de Montaigne, French Renaissance philosopher and writer.

Feel free to browse across the sections/categories and send me comments and suggestions by email or through any other platform. Happy reading :)

Not just any bulbs. Wild, black irises bulbs that grew naturally in the Cedars region.

I planted some in my compost and some in the soil of my garden.

I am now excited to see them well-sprouted, despite all the cats from the neighborhood.

Warm Potato Salad


I am a potato lover. Couldn't be more normal for someone who embraced the German nationality more than 3 decades ago.
