A friend of mine said about vaping people,  that he  don’t want to

“breath chemicals”. I decided to look at what is e-juice and what comes out from a e-cig.

E-juice is a mix of vegetable fglycerine (propylene glycole) and aromas. I personally buy glycerine either from Farmacy (where it is available, so far only in Austria) or from Amazon.

Vegetable glycerine is made cooking a fat with lye like described in

Many people use to mix pure vegetable flycerine with flavours bought at sites like  or lI prefer to flavour glycerine myself. I have so far only tried with coffee beans. I had 4 roasted coffee beans in 100 ml  warm propylene glycole bought (PG) in a Austrian Pharmacy . I heated it up putting teh bottle ingho water.
After one week I  didnt get  the coffee smell I hoped for.

There are several youtubes about 

HOW TO make your own Vape juice at home”

but noone so fare  tried to flavour themselves their VG or PG.

Steeping in a dark and cool place is the best according to 

Bahas said in that “The reason most make companies use alcohol is cause it renders faster than glycerin (usage of alcohol to render flavor makes it a tincture). Pg is a little quicker cause it is thin Vg is the longest process cause it is thick. Yes you can speed it up with the application of heat but that only starts the process faster it will take time ” More to read about flavor extrrascts made with alcohol in

Ubuntu e wireless in Italia, Installazione Open Office 3.0

Internet wireless con TIM in un modem HUAWEI E220

Quest’inverno mi sono di nuovo portato il portatile, stavolta con Ubuntu 8.10 installato. Qui in Svezia uso un wireless modem di marca HUAWEI HSDPA Modem E220 con una scheda di Tele2 svedese. Con Ubuntu 8.1 finalmente riesco a collegarmi facilmente con una piccola icona sopra a destra. A casa cambio facilmente rete nel menu per usare la mia rete locale wireless.

Ora che sono andato in Italia avevo bisogno di Internet. Con la scheda svedese mi sarebbe costato una fortuna navigare in rete in Italia. A Palermo mi sono comprato una scheda TIM con Alice 100 ore. Ho comprato solo la scheda con una ricarica di 25€ e l’ho montato nel mio modem HUAWEI. Devo dire che non ci é voluto molto ed avevo nel menu a tendina sopra a destra, l’option TIM Alice e Internet con TIM.

Non é come in Svezia navigare wireless perché costa!!! E feci un grosso errore quando avevo consumato quelle cento ore. Andai in un tabacchi e feci una ricarica di 25€. Otto ore dopo ero a secco!!!! Mi avevano messo una ricarica per telefono!!!! Per ricaricarla dovetti chiedere aiuto a un amica che comprò una ricarica via Internet.

Open Office 3.0

Open Office 3.0

Mi sto liberando completamente da Windows. Solo Dreamweaver mi lega ma con Dreamweaver 8 uso Wine…. Oggi ho scoperto che c’é Open Office 3.0 Io ho soltanto 2.7 installato. Tramite un blog svedese ho trovato questo link… In tre mosse si installa.


“Obama is young, handsome and even suntanned” Berlusconi

talian leader: Obama ‘handsome and even tanned’

Berlusconi appeared to be joking about America’s first black president at a news conference following talks with Russia’s president. The Italian leader, who has a history of controversial remarks, was asked by a reporter about the prospect for U.S.-Russian relations, which have plummeted to Cold War-levels in recent months. Berlusconi responded by saying that the relative youth of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, 43, and Obama, 47, should make it easier for Moscow and Washington to work together. Then he said, smiling: “I told the president that (Obama) has everything needed in order to reach deals with him: he’s young, handsome and even tanned.” Italy’s famously impolitic Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi described U.S. President-elect Barack Obama on Thursday as “young, handsome and even tanned.” (


Obama ha tutto per poter andare d’accordo con lui (ndr. Medvedev). Perché é giovane e bello e anche abbronzato. E quindi penso che si possa sviluppare una buona collaborazione.” Pier Silvio Berlusconi.

Obama has everything to get along with him (ndr. Medvedev) because he’s young, handsome and even suntanned. So I think that a good cooperation can be developed.” Pier Silvio Berlusconi.

Det är långt ifrån första gången som Berlusconi hamnar i blåsväder för sina uttalanden.
” 2003 sade han att en tysk kritiker i Europaparlamentet skulle passa som nazistisk lägervakt.
” Som EU:s ordförande 2003 inledde han ett toppmöte med orden: “Låt oss tala om fotboll och kvinnor.”
” 2005 antydde han att han använt alla sina “talanger som playboy” för att Finlands president Tarja Halonen skulle acceptera att en EU-myndighet för livsmedelsfrågor hamnade i Italien istället för i Finland. Finska UD tvingade den italienske ambassadören att förklara uttalandet.
” I valkampanjen 2006 hävdade han att vänstern inte kunde vinna eftersom det inte finns så många idioter i Italien. Han hävdade också att kinesiska kulturrevolutionärer hade kokat barn och använt dem som gödningsmedel.
” Vid ett besök på New York-börsen uppmanade han till investeringar i Italien “eftersom vi har så vackra sekreterare, formidabla kvinnor”.
” Han påstod att Mussolini aldrig lät döda någon. “Han skickade folk på semester i intern exil.”

Den 72-årige Berlusconi lider inte brist på självförtroende. I olika valkampanjer har han utnämnt sig till “politikens Jesus” och kallat sig “världens främste politiske ledare”. (GP)
