There was a “pastel de nata” (portuguese cake) with a lot of cinnamon on it floating on the sea when all of the sudden a big shark came across with it and eat it, The cake remained on a corner of his belly for few days and it was not able to digest it and the shark became ill, The shark was so sick that he decided to visit a witch to find out a solution. The witch prepared for him a potion based on coffe and green melon, She put the melting solution under the shark´s tongue and he felt immediately better.

Friday, March 23rd 2018

    I’ve read your story and it seems you are not excited about you national cake. Or is it so bad for sharks only? Because I’ve found the cake’s photos and recipe and I think I will like it!

GAS STOVE shows up the flame without assistance stove nob was not working so I turned Off the gas CYLINDER connection the flame was still on, I freaked out and opened the CUB-BOARD to use the fire extinguisher blood splashed on my face, I ran out of the kitchen screaming heavily reached the hall and sat down on the COUCH and started dialing my friend. Hand from the couch pulled me inside. I woke up from my sleep with a scream.

James you’re an incredible teacher, and I learned a lot from you. You were mentioned in this video, how the BACON is delicious and you like to eat. According to science BEACON and PORK are so unhealthy; meanwhile pigs are scavenger and pig’s meat is full of parasites. Nevertheless I strongly recommend to you do not eat BACON nor any products from the pigs.

Wishing you all the best.

thx man. really love your teaching style. also I like to put words into multiple dimensions. it also works pretty well. here’s one: I am heading to the ‘Lausanne CathedralI’ was walking down the street and I saw ‘a pile of’ leaves, there is a ‘kiosk’ at the front and I go there and ask them if they have ‘Emmental cheese’. … This is a really good way to memorize some hard words.
