On our way to the Zoo I guess you are already fed up with all my blah-blah-blah about my home town, I've made sure to bore you enough inSpring time in my home townandGypsy Kings. But this tasteless little town still holds few surprises under its old hat, like this pretty Zoo I haven't been visiting in such a long time. It's about 30 years old and although the financial resources, necessary for a basicmaintenance,are quite low, this little place it manages to survive after all these years, playin... read more »
Madilyn fromJersey Lil's 2 centshas offered me another fabulous chance to feel good about myself, my blog and the wonderful world of blogging. She has passed a lovely Fabulous Blog Ribbon to me and I am more than happy to accept such a great honor from such a lovely lady as she is. Madilyn always manages to put a smile on my face (and sometimes a couple of more pounds on my hips) with her delicious recipes or a dose of humor through her posts.
Thank you so much, Madilyn, you've just ... read more »
Looks weirdly cute, huh? Botulism is a disease that is not very common but is extremely serious. It is caused by a toxin from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and is manifested by paralysis, inter alia. Unfortunately in Romania there are still many cases of illness, comparing to the rest of Europe, due to lack of information and education regarding this subject. And to be honest, my family is not far from this class of ignorant people, simply because my parents are very... read more »
Lately we've been assaulted by so many bad news related to a ticks invasion. I don't watch TV but my family does and every time they turn on the TV there is nothing but ticks, ticks and ticks.
Picture of male and female ticks At first I wasshocked, then in disbelief, then annoyed by all this media frenzy and frankly I couldn't understand all the hysteria until I've made a little research on the issue and bam! the gravity of this subject has hit me and scared the heart out of me. Ticks are... read more »
I really don't know what's wrong with priests in my country. Apart from being stuck in their well expired traditions andcompletelyand hopelessly shut down to any modern changes (which by the way are more constructive and with more common sense), they also don't give a damn about their faithful "ewes", their life and their safety.
I am ranting about this simply because lately there's been a lot of publicity on babies dying while baptized or people catching mouth viruses after their communion, becau... read more »
Dacia Fericită, un proiect inedit lansat la 4 iunie, este primul site panromânesc a cărui scop este găsire sufletelor pereche de pe cele două maluri ale Prutului.
Acest proiect vine ca o nouă provocare pentru tinerii și doritorii de a depăși orice graniță dintre români și de a crea legături strânse cu românii din cele mai îndepărtate colțuri românești.
Proiectul abia a fost lansat și are ca scop crearea a câtor mai multe perechi între tinerii români atât din România, cât și din afara granițelor ofici... read more »
Lately I've been taking advantage of my mom's excellent cooking skills... Please hold those stones you'd love to throw at me! It is all for a good cause, for Pete's sake! My friend Lavanya fromTickle your taste buds and make your life deliciousgave me the honor to guest post on her blog and since I am rather a famous assassin as mentioned inKindergarten, I've nicely asked my beloved mom to share some of her delicious recipes with us. It would've been such a shame to keep this wonderful reci... read more »
Anyone that has got in touch with me at least a bit, knows I really love Europe, especially Romania, to a point of anaddiction that, considering how much it influences my mood, can become quite worrisome. (What I love about my capital city, Bucharest)
When I used to work on the ship and be away from family, friends and my country, I had many, many moments when I felt so down and depressed, even if I shouldn't have as I was traveling to such nice places, around the globe. But to me nothing could be... read more »
lumea boxului profesionist este grea, prin nemilirea ei si prin gramada imensa de bani ce se invart in jurul ei, eu unul cred ca este in primul rand o afacere si mai apoi un sport. Poate tocmai de aceea am simtit ca Bute va fi invins, ca el va sti asta si ca tocmai de aceea nu a ridicat acel steag ... Imi este drag acest om pentru faptul ca este legat intru totul de familie si tara lui si ca simte ca locul lui este aici. Ce va fi, imi spun eu acum---Bute se va revansa in Canada si mai apoi se va retrage ... read more »
Moldoveanul din stânga Prutului e român de câteva ori pe an:1. Când o echipă de fotbal din România ajunge printr-un campionat european. Moldoveanul basarabean privește televizorul ca atunci când stelistul bate gol, să strige mândru și să pună statusuri pe facebook "ai noștri rup tăt, goool, dawai (hai) Steaua". Pentru că e român. (Astăzi va zice: Go Bute!)2. În timpul Eurovision-ului. Știe sigur că România îi va da 12 puncte, și urcă câteva poziții în față, dacă are noroc. Și bineînțeles, la rândul lui a... read more »
