This was the sun going down over the Nile on what is now the May chamsin wind, that blows the sand and dust, its not too bad here in Luxor city, but nothing the other side of the Nile is visible with the dust storm,
and this is the weather for a drink of real Orange Juice,
If you want 100% juice you need to make it yourself.
!8/5/10 I bought what I read as 100% natural orange juice,
Drank some last night and again for breakfast juice,
The fruit etc here is plentiful but the oranges have a season and its now the end of that season.
hence buying the juice in a carton, also I thought no more squeezing oranges to get the juice for a few months makes for an easier life,
Then on my walk about today I found one market stall that had oranges whole juicy oranges , so I bought 5 kilo the guy asked 4egp per kilo and looked at me amazed when I said, 5 please. knowing I could get at least the equivalent of 4 cartons for the price of 2, after juicing. He also threw in 4 bananas for not haggling with him, so here I am in my flat making juice once I squoze (juiced) 2 oranges I had a sip of pure nectar.
and thought that stuff I bought yesterday was not real Juice, so I dug the empty carton out of the rubbish bin and read the side panel.
And I wondered since when is 50% 100% natural. after the acids sucrose natural flavour from 50%orange and the rest of the rubbish I had bought a carton 40% of water,
and there was me itching and thinking I had eaten something from a can that I was alergic to,
I am allergic to preservative additives in cans the only tins I use are corned beef.
And that is one of the problems with us men we do not read things before buying. all I saw was 100% natural.
I have been juicing my own since the 90s when I found out about my allergy . that was brought on by an overdose of yellow fever jabs, given by one of the nurses in the park road surgery in Newtown,
once I found out I was double jabbed they said its no problem, sorry to tell them it was and still is a problem.
And this is where the lies come in. I can understand the mentality of The Egyptians who Lie as a matter of course, or rather I do not understand why they lie as a matter of course, maybe its because they think telling the truth will bring Islam down, I am actually listening in the background the channel mbc action, because one of my famous and who I consider the best actor is on, you know the one, dirty harry? but this is Million dollar baby. Clint Eastwood, and during the adds we have first time on tv the new series of Lost. new series frig, I have seen it on this telly at least twice. and my tv is only 2 years old,
back to juice, out of the five killo I have put 4 whole oranges in the freezer I love peeling them and have them as a ice lolly, 1.5 litre of juice 4 ice lollies and another cup full for tomorrows breakfast drink,
sorry I can not show the bananas they got eaten on the way back. real dawdler me .
I know the oranges look off but they are at their sweetest now, they even use after they are dry and shriveled as long as the do not go moldy.
so no more fake orange juice mango are starting to come into ripeness and so are the Grapes next month we will have the Pomegranate both the latter I can juice in my Squeezer, mango needs to be over ripe for juicing first the skin and stone has to be separated from the flesh then the flesh put in the blender.
so you see I do not need to buy expensive coloured water,
Do you like the colours of my ice lolly makers My wife bought them at Lakeland plastics and if you need to see lakeland products go to http://www.lakeland.co.uk/
Allan Raynor started lakeland plastics his first venture was making seal-able bags for goat milk that came from the small holdings in the area, then made the polystyrene for green houses.the whole venture became a huge success and the whole thing was moved to the lake district, another venture that started in a garage workshop in Wales a village called Aberhafesp, Nr Newtown, Powys, the family was one of our near Neighbours when we lived at Gethin farm Aberhafesp Newtown20 th May 2010 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/7767810/Lakeland-voted-Britains-best-shop.html..
