Kojon Prieto – A mi me gusta el marisco (Bilbainada)

 

Los pimientos del piquillo ¡qué pimientos!,
las alubias de Sangüesa y la trucha con jamón,
cogollicos de Tudela,
la cuajada de la abuela
y el cordero al chilindrón.
¡Qué bien me sienta el marisco!
Con champán, mucho mejor.
Me río yo de Jalisco,
de mi tierra no me voy.
Las cerecicas de Echauri ¡qué fruticos!,
los espárragos de Allo y el quesico del Roncal,
el clarete de Cascante, de Cintruénigo, Murchante,
de Cirauqui hasta Mañeru y el de Olite no está mal.
¡Qué bien me sienta el marisco!
Con champán, mucho mejor.
Me río yo de Jalisco,
de mi tierra no me voy.
Y con estos arañones
nos hacemos garrafones
que bebemos en las fiestas
y en los días de labor.
¿Dónde vas con esas setas?
Que te saco la escopeta.
Nos comemos unos monguis
y nos ponemos cañón.
¡Qué bien me sienta el marisco!
Con champán, mucho mejor.
Me río yo de Jalisco,
de mi tierra no me voy.

University of Glasgow

In 1870, the Univeristy of Glasgow moved to Gilmorehill. The new-build campus was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the Gothic revival style.

Gilmorehill inspired the design of the Clocktower complex of buildings for the new University of Otago in New Zealand.

Scott’s building is structured upon what was then a cutting-edge riveted iron frame construction, supporting a lightweight wooden-beam roof. The building also forms the second-largest example of Gothic revival architecture in Britain, after the Palace of Westminster.

Thé du Hammam

Thé du Hammam

 

A fruity blend is inspired by a Turkish recipe using green teas, characteristic fragrances used to perfume a hammam (steam bath): roses, green dates, berries and orange flower water.

Sprinkled with flower petals in the pure Eastern tradition, its extraordinary fragrance comes from a subtle combination of Chinese green tea and rich, fruity aromas.

This is a picture of the South Shields Volunteer Life Brigade, founded January 1866.

The Volunteer Life Brigade is a search and rescue organisation which assists HM Coastguard in the United Kingdom in coastal emergencies. Around 40 VLBs were established in the mid-to-late 19th century; today just three remain on the coast of north-east England.

The first unit, at Tynemouth, was established on 5 December 1864.

The three remaining VLBs are on call to the Coastguard 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, each providing a shore-based team of volunteers trained and ready to provide assistance.
