laundramate, Rich Altomare, Washington Street, Hoboken, December 31st, 2010. „I like decorating the store for the holidays and always enjoy the positive feedback. people stop and smile at the lights and ornaments. The also hang card up, it is my own personal touch and my customers always look forward to it. I always look forward to hearing from my friends and family every year and seeing how much the children have grown. I started working with my father in high school and throughout college, and when I recieved my degree in business I continued lightening my fathers load. I try hard to keep it above water, but it is very difficult in todays economy. Fortunately I have great customer support, and the location is a greatasset. Being on the main strip I get many visitors every year.“ (Rich Altomare)

Michael Jackson, 218 Varet Street, Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York, “Artists want to recreate the world- as if they were mini gods. And they make a-  a series- on going thinking about history, about life,  about the things that happen in the world, things people believe to have happened? Why do we believe so? Well, because we believe in memory- based history, after all… because everything is already gone. Who can guarantee that what we imagine happened really happened? Who should we ask about this? This world– this supposition is– therefor, an illusion. The only true thing is memory. However memory is an invention. Deep down memory means—in cinema– in cinema, the camera can fix a moment in time, but that moment has passed. In the end, what it shows you is a ghost image of that moment. We are not sure anymore if that moment existed out of the film. Wether the film is a gurantee of the existence of that moment, I don’t know. About that. I know less and less. We live, after all, in permanent doubt. (in Lisbon Story, Directr Wim Wenders)

Frieda Lemberger, Lam, Germany, January 15th 2011. Breaddumblings, Ingredients
1 (1 pound) loaf stale French bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs (optional)
Place the bread cubes into a large bowl. Heat the milk until it starts to bubble at the edges, then pour it over the bread cubes. Stir briefly to coat the bread. Let soak for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions; cook and stir until tender. Stir in the parsley, and remove from the heat. Mix into the bowl with the bread along with the eggs, salt and pepper. Use your hands, squeezing the dough through your fingers until it is smooth and sticky.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. The water should be at least 3 or 4 inches deep. When the water is boiling, make a test dumpling about the size of a small orange or tangerine, by patting and cupping between wet hands. Gently drop into the boiling water. If it falls apart, the dough is too wet. In this case, stir some bread crumbs into the rest of the dumpling batter.
Form the remaining dough into large dumplings, and carefully drop into the boiling water. Simmer for 20 minutes, then remove to a serving plate with a large slotted spoon. (
