Downtown Abbey: Fan Resource Guide Downton Abbey follower develops cookbook from on-­screen food A Downton Abbey follower has taken her interest in the show to a new degree, creating a cookbook based upon recipes mentioned in the Edwardian-­set melodrama. Pamela Foster, of Burlington, Ont., incorporated her love of the show and her own interest in food history to develop the e-­book Abbey Cooks Entertain. "I'm a big follower of the show and, as a result of a marathon session my spouse and I had, watching episode after episode without consuming anything, it inspired me to discover what the food was like and learn how to prepare it,­" Foster said in an interview with CBC News. Foster was currently blogging frequently about the show, which concentrates on a British noble family, the Crawleys, residing in Downton Abbey and their friends and servants.

En el mundo contemporáneo las apariencias han sustituido a la realidad. No obstante, la fotografía, una tecnología históricamente al servicio de la verdad, sigue ejerciendo una función de mecanismo ortopédico de la conciencia moderna: la cámara no miente, toda fotografía es una evidencia. A partir de vivencias personales, el autor crítica esta creencia y reflexiona sobre aspectos fundamentales de la creación y de la cultura actual. Además de un nuevo diseño, cubierta y encuadernación, esta nueva edición incluye un prefacio del autor, escrito en abril de 2011, en el que explica el origen y gestación de El beso de Judas así como su recorrido hasta hoy.

By the time he was 10 years old, he was already recognized as a phenomenon—a kid who ate, slept and drank the game. "All he wanted to do as a boy was play football,­" his godfather, Fernao Sousa, recalled for British reporters, adding, "He loved the game so much he'd miss meals or escape out of his bedroom window with a ball when he was supposed to be doing his homework.­" By his early teens, Ronaldo's talent and legend had grown considerably.

Layne was born August 22, 1967 in Kirkland, WA. When Layne was seven, his parents divorced. He started playing drums around the age of 12. Layne always wanted to sing when he played his drums, so his groupies told him that he should sing instead. So, Layne traded in his drum set for a microphone and delay. While at a party in Seattle in 1987, he met Jerry Cantrell who suggested the two start a band. Jerry then introduced Layne to Mike Starr, who introduced him to Sean Kinney. Layne was known to be dark and mysterious, but he actually had a thirst for knowledge and was a chatterbox. He was also an artist. Layne did the artwork both for Mad Season's album and in sleeve of Alice in Chains' "Dirt" album. His best known artwork is probably the Alice In Chains Sun Logo.
