How do you get more of the crunch and leave them so soft and melt-in-your-mouth at the same time?
Everyone loved these and you will need:
500g cooked potatoes, chopped with skin on
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 level tablespoons uncooked plain couscous
1 teaspoon dried herbs and I like rosemary
Salt is optional
Prepare an oven dish by greasing with a spoon of olive oil. in a large bowl toss the potatoes with the olive oil, herbs and salt if you are using it. Finally add the raw couscous and toss again. Use your hands or gently with a large spoon and be careful not to over stir and break up the potatoes.
Place in a preheated oven at 220C for 25 minutes.
Serve hot or cold with drinks and a toothpick. The inside remains soft and creamy !

Cats can make great friends and companions. And they’re hilarious. You can laugh endlessly at some of the cat videos on YouTube. They seem to have almost taken over the internet in the last few years, especially with the rise of Grumpy Cat. We tend to think of cats as cute little furry things, often unaware of the fact that cats are some of the most powerful healers out there.
Scientific studies have shown time and time again that cats are more than just good pets. They are extremely therapeutic, and may actually be a good form of medicine for people suffering from heart conditions.
Did you know that owning a cat can reduce your risk of a heart attack? The finding was the main result of a 10 year study of more than 4,000 Americans by researchers at the University of Minnesota’s Stroke Institute in…

Seit 24 Jahren sitzt Schimpansenmännchen Canoe in einem winzigen Käfig mitten in Bangkok. Kein Spielzeug, keine Klettermöglichkeiten, keine Abwechslung, nichts.
Seit 24 Jahren sitzt Schimpansenmännchen Canoe in einem winzigen Käfig mitten in Bangkok. Kein Spielzeug, keine Klettermöglichkeiten, keine Abwechslung, nichts. Schon seit 3 Jahren laufen Verhandlungen mit den Besitzern, aber sie weigern sich, das Tier in ein Sanctuary abzugeben. Rechtlich gesehen besteht keine Chance Canoe freizubekommen, weil das thailändische Tierschutzgesetz nur für Wildtiere gilt, die in Thailand beheimatet sind. Die Heimat der Schimpansen ist aber Afrika. (!!!!!!)
Mit dieser Petition wird nun versucht die Öffentlichkeit zu erreichen, um Druck gegen die Besitzer aufzubauen. RTN würde sich freuen, wenn viele mitmachen würden.
Hier geht’s zur Petition: https://www.change.org/p/%E0%B8%99%E0%B8%B2%E0%B8%A2%E0%B8%99%E0%B8%B4%E0%B8%9E%E0%B8%99%E0%B8%98%E0%B9%8C-%E0%B9%82%E0%B8%8A%E0%B8%95%E0%B8%B4%E0%B8%9A%E0%B8%B2%E0%B8%A5-%E0%B8%81%E0%B8%A3%E0%B8%B8%E0%B8%93%E0%B8%B2%E0%B8%8A%E0%B9%88%E0%B8%A7%E0%B8%A2-%E0%B9%81%E0%B8%84%E0%B8%99%E0%B8%B9-%E0%B8%AD%E0%B8%AD%E0%B8%81%E0%B8%A1%E0%B8%B2%E0%B8%88%E0%B8%B2%E0%B8%81%E0%B8%99%E0%B8%A3%E0%B8%81-free-canoe-from-his-prison

Valentines Day for humans means chocolates, flowers and dinner, but how about cats? The famous cartoon feline, Simon’s Cat shows us that he might be looking purr love in all the wrong places.
Maybe Simon should take a cue from some big cats and use a box in slightly different way
Jade and Armani, two rescued leopards from Big Cat Rescue check out a Valentine’s Day themed kissing booth for the first time.
PETA’s placement of its 90-foot ad in Times Square featuring that force of nature P!nk certainly sparked conversation. Rocking nothing more than her hot bare bod, she pleads for us all to be comfortable in our own skin—and let animals keep theirs.
This fierce lady isn’t the only one with an opinion on fur, though: A Who What Wear editor recently vowed never to wear real fur again, and Refinery29 agrees that you can wear faux and still look chic. If they could, animals might ask us this question: Can you imagine seeing your dog or cat skinned alive? Think about the anguish, fear, and suffering they’d endure. All animals experience this when they’re skinned for their fur. On Chinese fur farms—which supply more than half of all the finished fur garments that are imported for sale in the U.S.—there are no penalties for abusing animals. You can…

Fight to Stop PETA’s Killing Grows
February 6, 2015 by Nathan J. Winograd
What You Can Do To Help
My website http://www.whyPETAkills.org which describes PETA’s recent theft and killing of Maya–a happy and healthy dog–from her home was trending on Reddit yesterday, hitting the No. 4 spot last night.
Reddit reports about 174 million monthly visits. Combined with the 5.1 million page views about PETA on my Facebook page this past week, as well as news stories around the country including television news stations and newspapers like the New York Post, the Huffington Post, and Gannett papers across the country, more and more people are learning the truth.
In response to growing public outcry over Maya’s illegal killing, the Attorney General of Virginia just announced he is opening up an Animal Protection Unit to oversee the prosecution of these kinds of…
