I've put Apache Open Office on my Windows 8.1 machine. It is free! And, for me, a satisfactory substitute for Microsoft Office (which is NOT free). Plus, the open source model appeals to me.

Mike is out visiting with the whales almost every weekend. First in the kayak and this day he was on a board. I don't know how you can stand up and paddle, Son! The whales are so beautiful and so graceful.

Angelo, congratulations! You are really learning to handle yourself in the water, exercising patience and practice, figuring out how to choose a good wave, etc. Mom, Aunt and Uncle are a great crew, aren't they? Uncle Mike - an excellent job of editing. Plus, it looks like wonderful fun! :) Angelo, I bet you're glad to have this video to show your friends. Lucky boy, I know you'll remember to thank everybody on your team. Lots of luck and love to you .....

A clarifying, logical approach to Chinese-style tea brewing  which helps me a lot.
 
Calling it "gongfu brewing vs western brewing" is fundamental flawed because
i) Not all 'eastern' or 'asians' practice gongfu brewing
ii) Not all Chinese do so for that matter. It is primarily southern Chinese- Fujian, Guangdong (Chaozhou) and their migrant descendants
iii) Not all Southern Chinese do it all the time, Fuzhou (in Fujian) people certainly don't gongfu brew their jasmine tea.

This also perpetrates a 'east-west' divide.

In my opinion it can be
i) Gongfu versus 'casual' brewing because gongfu (工夫) means time and effort
ii) Gongu versus 'big vessel' brewing because in Chinese we often use gongfu versus 大壶泡 (literally big pot brewing) to differentiate.

What do you think?

What a gag it is, growing old
Introduction
Orchid grower, tea server, writer and poet.

Eccentric, INFP, aging hippie with a contemplative nature. Theoretician & maker of ironic observations. Catalyst, idea-person, and life-hacker. 

Since 2014, Pamela Dean is a stranger in a strange land. She lived in San Antonio TX for a lifetime. Now her home base is in Southern California, wonderfully close to family. She's dealing with all things new and different -- doing what is called these days "moving forward" through the confusion. Settling down among the fascinating people and places of L.A., she's found the upheaval worth the effort.
