Skubanky-Czech-Dessert
Five simple ingredients and a whole lot of taste. So what happens when you mix a little bit of flour, some boiled potatoes, sugar and a lots of butter? You get something delicious that Czechs call škubánky. It’s a little bit like potato dumplings or gnocchi, but the way it is usually served, it’s more like...
One year ago today, the Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Sciences, an international cultural organization, established 1958 in Washington D.C. posted about the death of who they called “one of our most productive SVU members” – George (Jiří) Kovtun. Jiří passed away in Prague on September 8, 2014. He was born in Horincevo, which was then part...

Prague-Czech-Tres-Bohemes-Visit-Bohemia (17)
1986 was a strange year for a girl who spent most of her life in America to visit Prague. Yet my parents were missing everyone they had left behind and they felt safe enough, so I decided to go along.  The Cold War was mostly over, although it would be three more years before the Berlin Wall...
Breakfast-Tiffanys-Tres-Bohemes
“Oh, I love New York,” said Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) as she lifted a cigarette to her lips. I just recently watched Breakfast At Tiffany’s and it reminded me how there’s nothing like New York in the spring, especially in the morning when the streets are empty. Can’t you just hear Moon River playing softly in...
Top-10-Impractical-Runway-Tres-Bohemes
Through my years of watching the runways and reading about fashion I must say, I have seen some pretty ridiculous ensembles. Now don’t get me wrong, high fashion is not all flamboyant hairstyles, unwearable clothes made of extremely expensive layers of gold, and ten inch heels.

Boredom is an an unpleasant feeling which most people try to avoid. It can make you feel tired, restless, and downright depressed. Staying busy not only saves you...
Today I stumbled upon the stunningly beautiful work of Jane Long and photographer Costică Acsinte… Jane is an artist and fine art photographer from Brisbane, Australia who happened upon some old photos and decided to give them new life… Born on the 4th of July in 1897 in the little village of Perieți, România was Costică Acsinte.
