Superman Eyes

I found this advertisement from our Energy provider is interesting.The Slogan is,it always there every where for us to provide the energy and at the same time it was also a campaign for save energy. But,I found that people on that banner are only male. Are they tried to show man behavior or men behavior? ;o)

This the RED thing that I supposed to post on this month theme day but It was still in my camera.This is a newspaper box as you can see it but not a newspaper for stock exchange,business,economy or any serious news to develop a knowledge.It's just a news that for some people,they will called 'rubbish' but for some others is quite entertain them to find out that an artist just has a new boyfriend and he was a Porn Star ;o) that's what it meant for the right box headline. For more info the left one is the old box edition and the right one is the new box,that's why they looks different but with same price for 50 cent ;o)

Hmmm...We love Ice Cream too and can't wait for our turned on those hot days and this one was not so crowded,so we decided to stay in queue.Most of Ice Cream in Cologne are Italian one and for us they are still the best Ice cream maker and it is still hand-made Ice Cream.
Well,let's talk about Ice cream while our mouth waters.Here what I found in Wiki for "Ice Cream".
When the winter end,most of the Ice Cream cafe or like one on photo are crowded but we do consume ice cream in winter too,so,the Italian Ice cream maker is not totally close for winter.And what kind of Ice Cream that people at your place prefer the most?
