viitor de aur tara noastra are! motostivuitor, aspirator…

de cate ori vad cate o porcarie facuta de politicienii nostri, imi vin involuntar in minte versurile lui Dimitrie Bolintineanu din poezia Mircea cel Mare si solii: Viitor de aur tara noastra are Si prevaz prin secoli a ei inaltare care inaltare? la cer? cati secoli? dar pana la urma ce stia Mircea cel Mare de motostivuitor, de imunoglobina, de aspiratorul depoluant… despre ce vorbim de fapt? nici macar nu-mi vine sa scriu nimic. daca pun aici niste link-uri foarte sugestive, nu mai e nimic de comentat. panglica si pamblica despre ce vreti sa vorbim despre panglica de la inaugurarea unor toatele intr-o scoala? va dati seama cat sunt de retardati sa inaugureze niste toalete intr-o scoala. adica scoala aceea pana in acel moment a functionat fara toalete sau erau niste toalete mizerabile, pe care le gaseai dupa miros? iar acum mandrie mare, motiv de inaugurare, am facut cacastoare decente

muzica proasta

Feli are o piesa cel putin la fel de proasta ca cea a Corinei

de fapt nici nu stiu care piesa e mai proasta. as inclina sa spun asta pe care o canta Feli, poate pentru ca e mai noua si pentru ca m-am obisnuit cu cea a Corinei; vezi aici postarea despre piesa Corinei. sau poate pentru ca nu ma asteptam de la Feli sa scoata asa o ineptie. de fapt ar fi trebuit sa ma gandesc ca e in stare sa faca orice cacat numai sa fie in top. poate nu-i rau, dar initial imi facuse alta impresie. insa, cum am spus, dupa ce si-a facut operatia de micsorare de stomac si a mintit cu nerusinare aproximativ 2 luni ca nu a facut nimic, trebuia sa ma gandesc ca e in stare de orice. eu am intalnit-o in spital, unde, desi totul e confidential, totul se afla. ma gandeam ca e mai sincera, dar se pare ca nu e in stare. am

March 30th, 1968 – Celine Dion’s birthday

This time I won’t write less known things, as I’ve done until now. I’ve thought to write only about duets in case of Celine Dion and her famous collaborations along her career. Famous duets, some of them are known others are less known, the idea is that they are exceptional. There are a few collaborations I haven’t known until now. “The Prayer”: – a duet with Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban. Both versions are special, but that with Josh Groban has a special sensitivity. “I Belive In You”– duet with Il Divo, the song is recorded on Celine Dion’s album, “On ne cange pas”, and it was selected as the official song of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, Germany. “Vois comme c’est beau”– duet with her sister, Claudette Dion, she is also a singer, but less well-known in the world of music. In 1985 the two sisters released a duet of this song

Elton John

March 25th, 1947 Elton John’s birthday

As I like it, I’m trying to find new and special things about the artists I’m writing about. Some things are familiar to me, some are new. Today it’s about Sir Elton John. In 1979, Elton was the first Western rock star who performed in both countries Israel and USSR. Before using the name Elton, he failed his lead vocalist auditions for King Crimson, they chose Emerson, Lake & Palmer(Greg Lake – founder). He helped Eminem to fight his drug problems; It was unlikely that two opposite personalities to become good friends. They performed together Eminem’s song “Stan” at 2001 Grammy Awards; later on, Eminem recognized that Sir Elton helped him to get off the drug addiction. Eminem admitted to having a problem with prescription drugs and was treated for a near-fatal methadone overdose. As we all know, Elton is famous for his collaborations with many artists. In 1993 he released the album “Duets”; the

viata e scurta, foarte scurta

cred ca nimic niciodata nu a reusit sa sugereze si sa exemplifice mai bine faptul ca viata este foarte  scurta asa cum a reusit acest videoclip. si pana la urma ca este vorba despre orice din ceea ce ti se poate intampla intr-o viata, ca este vorba de cat iubim, de cat ne distram, de cat ne plimbam, de cat ne jucam, de cat exploram, de cat experimentam, intotdeauna pare sa fie prea putin, sau mai putin decat ne dorim. intotdeauna, mai ales la un anumit moment viata ajunge sa ni se para scurta, foarte scurta. totusi, cred ca este important sa te simti bine cu tine, sa-ti placa ceea ce faci, iar daca nu-ti place sa ai niste compensatii atat de motivante incat sa nu-ti pese ca nu e chiar ceea ce-ti doresti. sau sa reusesti sa faci cat mai mult din ceea ce-ti place si-ti aduce multumire si

March 14th, 1879 Albert Einstein ’s birthday

It’s pointless to tell you now that Einstein was the one who developed the theory of relativity and one of the most important scientists, but I could tell you that he influenced Yoda’s aspect in Star Wars. Because I don’t want to borrow you, I let you here some interesting things, probably less known by most of us, about Albert Einstein the genius. childhood: due to the fact that he was born with a large and irregular shaped head, he was considered a deformed child. But, although after a few weeks, the size of his head was normal, he was always considered as having a mental abnormality, he had speech problems before the age of 9 years (he had hard time pronouncing words, he said a sentence only in the moment he was absolutely sure of pronouncing it correctly, all that process was happening in his mind). He was considered a mentally retarded child

March the 4th,1678 –  Antonio Vivaldi’s birthday

Vivaldi I’ve chosen March the 4th and Antonio Vivaldi because it seems important to me to try keeping the culture and values alive, to preserve them. Probably, there are young people who are reading my blog and I think that, if they don’t have musical studies, they don’t know much about Vivaldi or other personalities. They will learn something from my blog and they will enjoy this experience. At the end of this article you will find a video with David Garrett and his song “Summer”. He is a special guy from my point of view. In Romania, there is only one class of music per week and pupils don’t learn the history of music, the personalities, they don’t listen classical music, they don’t know the true value of music. They learn musical notes and measures, how to write them on a stave, but those that are not interested in

March the 1st and the tradition of mărţişor

I’m not used to sending this kind of messages, I find them childish. But today it‘s March the 1st and I make an exception. I send you a funny message for the first day of this spring. Besides, here, in UK, I don’t find any mărţişor and the only way of wishing you a beautiful and happy spring is this message. In UK the weather is not so good these days, it’s raining and the wind is blowing, it’s a perfect moment for things that characterizes me less, but makes me smile anytime I read them 🙂 I’ve found out on the internet a few interesting things about mărţişor. For example, it is an over 8000 years old Romanian tradition, the first things found were some amulets (red and white pebbles arranged alternatively in a string) worn at the neck. I read also “the legends of mărţişor. One day, the

No one can deny the influence of the potatoes on our life and diet 🙂 We all love potatoes no matter how they are cooked: fried French fries – the most known and loved potatoes, boiled and mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, oven roasted potatoes. There are hundreds of recipes with potatoes. The rustic potatoes and au gratin potatoes are very tasteful. There are many potato recipes with vegetables. The moussaka is appreciated very much.

People like baked tornado potato, mashed potatoes-on-a-stick, chips, those delicious chips, unhealthy but eaten by most of the people. Children love potatoes, especially the fried ones. This is reality –
