Bradley Wiggins is a shoein for the Tour de France Win

Good to see a Brit in with a chance of winning the Tour De France, but – damn – that makes for a boring race. Watched the finish in Foix on Sunday, and the whole thing was a total anti-climax, with Sky dominating the race. Oh well – got an interesting shot of Nibali chasing the Sky train through Foix.

The Rise of the Infographic – Introduction to Affiliate Marketing

Finally, I jump on the Infographic bandwagon. Seeing as this is now “white hat SEO” I thought I would post a few free infographics in the hope I will become one of the cool kids. Feel free to hotlink and/or pinch and link to these. After all – that is the point……………. This is my first one. Basic Affiliate Marketing Infographic  


Scientists Prove There Is No God

Wow! – Looks like the Swiss Nutcases trying to re-create a black hole have “maybe,” “might have,” “possibly,” “the evidence is mounting,” “tentatively confirmed,” that they have found a missing piece of the puzzle that proves a god is not needed to hold the Universe together and give it mass. Some idiot journalist went and dubbed it a “god particle,” which means I suspect some of my religious pals will take this to mean god is a quark. Cue bickering and fighting over what that means. Cripes – if you don’t believe dinosaurs existed millions of years before humans, and

Atkins Diet Recipes :: Smoked Salmon And Cream Cheese Omelet

Atkins diet recipes

Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Omelet

Having recently jumped on the Atkins diet bandwagon, in order to lose the ridiculous amount of weight I gained when I quit smoking and discovered that many of the so-called Atkins diet recipes are actually bait to sell you some sort of carbohydrate substitute – I have decided to share a few of my own recipes. This is my first one – a breakfast recipe – although, I don’t see why you couldn’t eat this any time of the day – a smoked salmon and cream cheese omelet. This is really simple – but the tricks to a good omelet are – a non stick pan – I always use a well seasoned cast iron skillet, and to cook it slowly.

These are the ingredients:

  • 3 medium eggs
  • splash of heavy cream
  • one triangle laughing cow cream cheese (Kraft would probably do or Philadelphia)
  • one small slice of smoked salmon
  • dash salt and freshly ground pepper
  • big knob of butter to cook with

As you can see – nothing complicated here.

First – add the knob of butter top your skillet and turn the heat to low (if you do not have a cast iron skillet – go buy one, but in the meantime any non stick fry pan will do).

Second – while the butter is melting, break the eggs into a bowl, add the splash of cream and a dash of salt and pepper and whisk.

Third – when the butter is melted, tip the skillet so that the pan is completely covered with butter, make sure the skillet is hot evenly and add the egg mixture.

Fourth – while the eggs are cooking, (remember – low heat) slice the cream cheese and salmon into small pieces and add to the omelet – one side only – we will be folding this over to cover them after wards. Add them as the eggs are hardening, but still runny on top – it should look something like this:

When the eggs are fully cooked – fold the omelet over, cut in half and serve – see photo at top.  Bon Apetit!
