On philology, potatoes and construction.
Well, this is just my first approach to blog-writing. I want it to be the way to keep in touch with colleagues and friends.

Turnip tops

Crops are rotated in order to make the soil more fertile. The land is resting: plenty of turnip tops everywhere. Most of them are used in the typical seasonal dishes (with meat and potatoes they make a great soup!). Left leaves and seeds will be used as a natural fertilizer to the soil where potatoes will be grown.

Painting
This is my third week in a wall-painting company !!! I was not looking for a particular job (I deserved some holidays) when this one was offered to me. I am finding it quite interesting: it is a very good complement to my activity in the building field. My task is very basic: I am an assistant. I have to leave surfaces ready to be painted or carry on basic tasks to help the painters. Meanwhile I learn how different finishings are made, how different products are applied, and, most important, what makes a good finishing.

Iria
I have been asked to carry on a project on onomastic. An index of Galizan names with data on its origin and meaning. First, I need to build a model, a guide. The ideal entry. The one to follow. It is quite a common approach: first you build a pattern, then mass production follows. Iria is the one I have chosen.
