    perhaps some of you know gimp or photoshop. In those programs you can use as many layers on an image as you want, giving you the ability to mimic technology Disney once implemented. I decided to draw in Gimp using only one layer, which is more similar to a mspaint image, but it lets you mix your colors making a more diverse pallete. at least to me it's like that the lion svhiyeyi and a tundlemore dragon.
  2. How do you get a job in the UK if disabled?

    I would think the UK has pleanty of jobs a handicapped person can do. Hawkings comes to mind as someone with a well respected job and a debilitating handicap.
  3. is smoking haram?

    I quit two months ago with one week of patches. tobacco is likely not haram for the same reasons it is still legal in the us, it makes lots of money
  4. Leaving yourself behind - a poem.

    "Grandfather, as you lived once and created all there is, create me to see myself as you do." Shandor I don't know, I don't know if I have ever been truly broken by an individual, maybe a group or even my own mind. I am sorry.
  5. Your recomendations?

    Antar! I love this story. I read it when I was 18 and I found it so, brilliant! What is even better with consuming this story, is that Rimsky-Korsakov wrote his second symphony to this story. Symphony No 2 Actually, when I was 18, I read this and Gilgamesh, and that was it for like a year.
  6. My Journey's Accumulation Thus Far

    I realized after writing several pages, that the ones in gold would never properly copy or scan.... oh well :P this is a practice attempt to send crow to someone. I wrote it with a peregrine falcon feather, I want to find something in the woods, but it's not the right time for that.

    certainly, sorry I have not posted more, I am quite busy these days.
  8. Making lots of good food on a budget (vegetarian)

    Few days ago we made some peanut chicken that was nice: 1 package of blanched roasted peanuts 1 onion 1 head of garlic 4 sweet peppers 1 chili pepper 1 package of heritage farm chicken breast x royal basmati rice tendoori seasoning black pepper no-salt red crush pepper extra virgin olive oil peanut cooking sauce, sweet chili version Preheat oven to 425, and place all chicken breast in an oven pan, add most of the peanut cooking sauce to the chicken, if desired add some black pepper for flavor. Begin cutting all peppers, and peal the garlic, once oven is ready, place the chicken breast in the oven. Pour some Extra virgin olive oil in a cooking pan, and through in the peppers, put on low heat. process garlic and cut up onion, add to pan. Prepare and start the rice. As the vegetables become soft, throw in the peanuts, then season to preference. I used unsalted peanuts, so I added extra no-salt to mine. Also if I cook with tendoori seasioning, I use moderately or lightly. Stir on occassion so none of the vegetables burn. Once the rice is finished, pour in the remaining peanut cooking sauce on the vegetables and stir well, check for taste and add seasoning if desired. When chicken is cooked all the way, cut up into small pieces. Add to the vegetables, and pour in any sauce in the oven pan. Let the stove pan cook for a while, until all flavors are balanced. Turn off heat and throw in rice, mix well and let sit for a while before serving.

  10. So often times a planned meal ends up costing lots of money, because of market prices on the goods. I have been working with goods that are on sale, or marked down in local groceries, often times making a 20$ meal into a 5-10$ meal. I don't really measure things out either, so the actual results may vary, I suppose. Home Made Cream of Mushroom: 2 package of sliced baby porta bellas 1 onion 1 head of garlic 1 package of assorted sweet peppers 1 package (small) of uncut whole baby carrots x flour x milk Cajun seasoning Black pepper Chili peppers or jalapeno peppers No Salt (one can use cream I suppose, but it won't look like the photo) Extra virgin olive oil Add a little extra virgin olive oil to a deep pan, this will make a lot of food, so something that can hold a stir fry is appropriate. Throw in the mushrooms and carrots, and set heat to low on the pan. Cut the onion and process or cut the garlic so they can start the carmalizing (uh, wordsmith lol) process. Cut all the sweet peppers as desired, I like bigger chunks. Once the carrots have softened half through, and the garlic has "disapeared" add in flour and stir, so that all the veggies are covered in flour. Pour in Milk to make a gravy consistency. Add more milk and flour until you have a thick paste binding all the veggies, water down with milk until it is easy to consume/serve. Real Heavy Cream is what companies like Campbell's uses; I'm in the midwest of the US, where biscuits and gravy are a staple, so using flour and milk (part of the gravy if not all of it) gives it a comfort take of the soup for me and my family. My new father from India loves this particular dish. You can use real salt, but because my mother has issues with sodium, my family uses No-Salt which contains no sodium. NOTE: I am sorry, I thought I had a photo of this dish, but it's gone or something, or was never photographed. I was certain I had shown it to someone this year, boggling. It comes out sort of grey, because the flour and milk and all the veggie oils kind remain colorless. If that is bothersome, some hot sauce will change that

  13. What to Ask Your Future Spouse

    sorry, what does that mean? ;) I don't know much arabic, other than Lo-Raheem and Allah and Salam :P
  14. What to Ask Your Future Spouse

    I would ask, if they believe in magic? but that's me I think if I am to ask someone I like or want to know more, I make a list of things that interest me, and chekc off what I don't know they feel about or have an opinion on. for instance: hiking writing reading learning from what you said, I know they like learning, or something to that extent, they likely enjoy reading of some kind, even if it is only Quran. so I would check off writing and hiking, and ask questions based on those subjects. Does that help?
