Splash of red wine
can of tinned tomatoes
squeeze of tomato puree
drained can of red kidney beans
splash of worcestershire sauce
1 clove of garlic
2 teaspoons of chilli powder more or less ( I am quite weak in my chilli taste as I can't handle the heat )
A cup of grated cheese
Preheat your oven to 180 c
Line a oven tray with baking parchment
Brown your mince and then add the onion and garlic in the pan
I tend not to add oil as the mince gives off its own juices
Add in the rest of the ingredients and simmer for around 15 minutes then take off the heat
Place the first tortilla on the parchment lined baking tray then spoon some of the mince mixture on the tortilla then sprinkle with a bit of cheese repeat until you have a stack of about 4 finally top with some more of the mice mixture and add some cheese nachos and sprinkle some more cheese over . Place in the oven for around 15 minutes then one you have got it out of the oven leave to cool for 5 minutes , cut and serve with perhaps some Guacamole .

Why do cats love high places?
As a friend of the felines, you will have observed them making their way up frighteningly-tall trees, bookcases and cabinets, on multiple occasions. But what’s with the love of heights? We share a few reasons for cats’ daredevil behaviour in this post:
For cats, height serves a purpose. It’s not for the purrrfectview – oh no. Cats associate height with dominance. If you’ve got more than one cat, you’ll notice it’s the most dominant cat who wants to get the highest point available – there’s a pet hierarchy in every home, so it will always be the cheekiest chappy who is first to the top of the tower.
As cats are observational by nature, being high up allows them to cast an eye over their territory. It also allows them to make eye contact with the people in their home, giving them a greater sense of security and to feel accepted there.
Cats also feel that they’re in some way camouflaged because they are higher up and therefore, is a great place for them to practise their hunting skills and scan the ground for morsels of food.
Anxiety is a genetic explanation of why our cats look for elevated places to perch. In a high place, such as a shelf, our furry friends feel safe, as they are out of reach of potential claws and other threats. Cats will also retreat to a grand placeto relieve any anxiety they’re feeling in terms of noise, other animals or other things that they might be worried about.
We all know that hot air rises. Well, so do cats, so they often get higher up to keep warm. This is why cats love radiators so much, as that fur just isn’t doing the trick in winter. This shouldn’t be dangerous for your pet, as long as they are wise enough to move when they get too hot!
Oh, and then there’s the sheer fun element. Cats love climbing to high places for the entertainment-value. As they have loadsof energy to burn off each day and often get bored, climbing is a fabulous way for them to expel some calories.
Climbing is also good for their claws, their ability to balanceand their musculoskeletal system.
If you worry about your cat being so high up in your home, you can get carpeted shelves that are in easy-reach or buy them a cat tower, which will also serve as an exercise activity.Always ensure you have cat insurance to cover your pets in the event of an accident.

The other day it was the 150th birthday of Canada ! I just can't think about Canada without going to sing the national anthems of
"Oh Canada !"
I have only been to Canada once and that was on my honeymoon ~ many moons again costs on fingers ~ 20 years ago. For our honeymoon we had a dramatic start the plane engines caught fire and the control tower noticed there was smoke before we took off , so we had to escape the plane down the emergency chutes with loads of fire engines waiting. We spent our honeymoon nigh instead in Brighton as we were put up in a hotel till another plane was ready., luckily the next day we flew off without a hitch ! we went out to explore Toronto as soon as we got there so we didn't miss out on anytime exploring such a fantastic city.
I really loved Toronto it is such a vibrant city I would dearly love to go back especially if I was lucky enough to win some money at the moment perhaps on the Euro Millions on Lottoz is a website for those than are over 18 , there you can bet on lotteries from all around the world at a click of a button . From the Euromillions with has currently a jackpot of 100 million euros to the Mega Millions win the USA which has a current jackpot of $145.All available money is going to the teen as he is going to university soon. And of course I would make sure the teen didn't go without a little treat or 2 !
I love travel and going to different places but I have only been to Canada once and that visit has really stuck in my mind , one of the other places we went to in Canada was Niagara Falls so I would combine a visit to Toronto again. Canada does really get to your heart and soul and I think I would love to go round the same time I did last time which would be around my wedding anniversary.Canada is amazing at anytime of year but to see the beautiful carpet tapestry of colour in the Autumnal trees it really is a sight to behold.
Which country would you love to go back to ?
What would you do with a lottery win ?
I know that after university my son would really like a car as he has passed his test but as he is going to university there is no need for one as everything is on campus.
Or perhaps some improvements to the garden I know for instance my husband is itching to put some artificial grass down just so he doesn't have to mow the lawn.
Remember to use Lottery sites such as Lottoz are consecrate of their gaming responsibly they've safeguards in place such as age verification and they may check this again any any given point and remember you must be over 18 to use this service .

This isn't just restricted to yourself at losing a much loved pet, we lost our cat Rollie last Monday , he was a very much loved member of our family and life is one cat shaped hole at the minute. Rollie and Jack weren't related but as described in the memory post to Rollie, they were very much like Bert and Ernie Sesame Street. They had grown together as kittens with Jack being a few months older , when Jack wasn't looking Rollie would clonk him on the head and visa visa.

The Dashcam itself has a 2.7 inch screen and the touchscreen is very intuitive , Mr T commented on the good picture clarity , it also works in low level lighting.
In the event of an accident you can send yourself /insurance company/police any footage in the event of an accident.And because of the integrated GPS everything will be pinpointed : route speed and type of impact. This I see very much as a huge plus point in this day and age as there are definitely more cars on the road as opposed to when my husband learnt to drive.
Make sure you charge the dash cam before you set it up , it would have been useful if it had come with some residual charge. I'll start with the only down point that I can find about the dashcam and that is you can't the get power cable off easily not without taking the bracket off completely.

“I’ve lost my mojo!” How often do you hear that said? Well, here are some tips for finding it again (assuming you’ve already looked down the back of the sofa). My tips are written with crafting – in particular papercrafting – in mind, but the five point plan could equally well apply to almost any hobby. So I’ll give you the five points first and then go through them one by one telling you how I apply them to my own hobby. Then you can think about how you would apply them to yours.
- Go back to basics
- Do your research
- Try something new
- Buy something new
- Take a break
4. Buy something new
