I’ll start.

I live in Wroclaw, south-west Poland. The city has more than 100 bridges, 750,000 inhabitants and is a university city.
This is a city for young people with plenty of bars and live music.

I visited Poland for the first time a couple of weeks ago for a pre-Christmas break. I visited Warsaw and had a fantastic time. I was with two other friends and we had a couple of wild party nights out.
Polish girls can really have fun, it makes a great change from the London scene which is such hard work to be honest.
I partied quite a bit with one Polish girl and she took me to Cinnamon when things had died down at the club we were at. All I can say is- wow. I’ve never seen so many hot girls in a club in my life.
Needless to say, I’ve kept in touch with that girl, and I’m booking a ticket for Feb trip out again for some more Polish partying. I’m still searching for my future wife and intend to focus my efforts on Poland as I much prefer them to the London girls.
Great fun!

MY MESSAGE FOR PEACE AND HARMONY
« Thread Started on Nov 18, 2006, 7:38am » [Quote]
Dear brothers & sisters,

We all need to pray for one another, and to love one
another. We should always pray for the safety, peace,
love and brotherhood for people all over the world.
Too bad we can’t have an independence day for the
entire world. A day of freedom from ignorance, hatred,
war, illusions, power and control. A day where we can
all love each other as human beings and toss away the
weapons of war, and cast out our fears and hatreds
from our hearts into the graves. We must mourn the
graves of the innocents all over the world, and give
the children of the world the hope of a peaceful,
loving and beautiful world.

A world full of love and without hatred or fear. A
world where we can join hands together and accept one
another, regardless of our skin color, ethnic
divisions, religion or nationality. If we don’t unite
as a human race, then we have condemned the future
generation of children a dark and very grim future.

Think of love, compassion and peace always…

MY PRAYER FOR PEACE AND HARMONY

Merciful God, You made all of the people of the world
in Your own image and placed before us the pathway of
salvation through different Preachers who claimed to
have been Your Saints and Prophets. But, the
contradictions (made by us) in the interpretation of
Your teachings have resulted in creating divisions,
faith based hatreds and bloodshed in the world
community. Millions of innocent men, women and
children have so far been brutally killed by the
militants of several religions who have been
committing horrifying crimes against humanity and
millions more would not be butchered by them in the
future, if You guide and help us find ways to reunite
peacefully.

IN THE NAME OF GOD, THE COMPASSIONATE, THE MERCIFUL,
look with compassion on the whole human family; take
away the controversial teachings of arrogance,
divisions and hatreds which have badly infected our
hearts; break down the walls that separate us; reunite
us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and
confusion to accomplish Your purposes on earth; that,
in Your good time, all nations and races could jointly
serve You in justice, peace and harmony. (Amen)

Regards,

S.A.Rehman

Thanks.

Yes, there is a word there that is similar to “impossible” in English. I am so glad I have not used the phrase to show off in front of a female Italian colleague . “Look, I can speak Italian too!”

I hope it is not too rude to send to a forum. Is putane the same as puta in Spanish?

What exactly is impossible there? Sorry I have no knowledge of Romance languages.

But I remember an Italian movie — she screams “idioto, cornuto, castrato!” at a man. Translation. “Go away, I don’t love you anymore!”

I never studied English at school. Past Simple.
I have never had English lessons. Present Perfect.
I learned/learnt to speak in about six years and to write through the internet. [by using the internet.]
I’m still not satisfied. But I’m still not satisfied.
So, now that I have just posted a little description about/of my English knowledge, I would love to know if there is anybody who can read it carefully and try to correct me.

I’m not sure if it is right.

Bloody.

theshacall,
Please write a short piece about your town or city and I’ll show you how the grammar tenses work.

I know that you understand. It was just an selfestimation with a bit of humor. 😀
now! let’s see. what I can say about my home town( wich is not realy home anymore,due to my forced gipsy life stile) ;))
-is a cute city(it was 9years ago), one of the newest comunist way of of buildings, with a bit of old ,beautifull historic buildings.
even if the bloks of flats look a bit disgracefull, people, and the council have worked nicely on ‘it , to get’it a bit more colourfull …
if u would like to see the “interstreets ” , u can stop somewere, in London between brick lane and hackney rd , in E2….. there , in the late spring evening light, u can have a pure image of my city. there is an similar look….
well. we go back in Romania, to RM.Valcea. is about 45min walk from north side to the south. with two rivers crossing’it , one from north towards south, and another, from west to est.
with an estimated 80.000 inhabitants.
beautifull nature around, with hills west and south…. the beautifull Olt Valley.. 9miles to north starts the Carpathians mountains, not before the little “oassis” of natural mineral water called Caciulata…….
south of the city starts the verry “flat” zone.
there ar some nice places like Ocnele Mari, where the salty water is an atraction…… and Olanesti, another spa 😀
not much about it…..
as far as I know ,now, is quite changed, people r missing from there(as I do), newcommers r setled down there.
socialy is very nice, with some of the cutest places to go out and hang with friends…
what is suprising about this city, is that the property prices is growing so much that can even get over the spanish prices….wich I find’it a bit snobish…… :-[ as there is not as much beauty and level of life as any spanish city…….
but anyway, in it’s own inside, the city is beautifull.
as feelings for it: I can’t call it my home anymore, as I have changed over the years and felt in love with London and Barcelona… 🙂 ;D 😎
now I can call home the gorgeous London. 😛

A lot of the problems people face with English in this country is the use of vulgar words and phrases. I have written a book that I think everyone learning English should have at hand – Vulgar English & Sex Slang is a serious book that is attractive and humorous at the same time. It takes the subject seriously. For more information go to www.vulgarenglish.com

Hi Jon,

I had a look at your page and the book looks good. However, it’s not the only one of its type. It does seem to be easy to understand though.

I am of the opinion that some of the vocabulary used in the book can no longer be refered to as vulgar. As an example, ‘cock’, meaning penis, is almost certainly in normal use.

Just my two cents worth. Good luck with the book.

I’ve just realized that this site won’t let me write crude vocabulary, which is a problem considering that’s the nature of the post.

I learned/learnt to speak in about six years and to write through the internet. [by using the internet.]
I’m still not satisfied. But I’m still not satisfied.
So, now that I have just posted a little description about/of my English knowledge, I would love to know if there is anybody who can read it carefully and try to correct me.

I’m not sure if it is right.

Bloody.

theshacall,
Please write a short piece about your town or city and I’ll show you how the grammar tenses work.

I know that you understand. It was just an selfestimation with a bit of humor. 😀
now! let’s see. what I can say about my home town( wich is not realy home anymore,due to my forced gipsy life stile) ;))
-is a cute city(it was 9years ago), one of the newest comunist way of of buildings, with a bit of old ,beautifull historic buildings.
even if the bloks of flats look a bit disgracefull, people, and the council have worked nicely on ‘it , to get’it a bit more colourfull …
if u would like to see the “interstreets ” , u can stop somewere, in London between brick lane and hackney rd , in E2….. there , in the late spring evening light, u can have a pure image of my city. there is an similar look….
well. we go back in Romania, to RM.Valcea. is about 45min walk from north side to the south. with two rivers crossing’it , one from north towards south, and another, from west to est.
with an estimated 80.000 inhabitants.
beautifull nature around, with hills west and south…. the beautifull Olt Valley.. 9miles to north starts the Carpathians mountains, not before the little “oassis” of natural mineral water called Caciulata…….
south of the city starts the verry “flat” zone.
there ar some nice places like Ocnele Mari, where the salty water is an atraction…… and Olanesti, another spa 😀
not much about it…..
as far as I know ,now, is quite changed, people r missing from there(as I do), newcommers r setled down there.
socialy is very nice, with some of the cutest places to go out and hang with friends…
what is suprising about this city, is that the property prices is growing so much that can even get over the spanish prices….wich I find’it a bit snobish…… :-[ as there is not as much beauty and level of life as any spanish city…….
but anyway, in it’s own inside, the city is beautifull.
as feelings for it: I can’t call it my home anymore, as I have changed over the years and felt in love with London and Barcelona… 🙂 ;D 😎
now I can call home the gorgeous London. 😛

A lot of the problems people face with English in this country is the use of vulgar words and phrases. I have written a book that I think everyone learning English should have at hand – Vulgar English & Sex Slang is a serious book that is attractive and humorous at the same time. It takes the subject seriously. For more information go to www.vulgarenglish.com

Hi Jon,

I had a look at your page and the book looks good. However, it’s not the only one of its type. It does seem to be easy to understand though.

I am of the opinion that some of the vocabulary used in the book can no longer be refered to as vulgar. As an example, ‘cock’, meaning penis, is almost certainly in normal use.

Just my two cents worth. Good luck with the book.

I’ve just realized that this site won’t let me write crude vocabulary, which is a problem considering that’s the nature of the post.

How to lose your love in 30 seconds

Love is not fashionable anymore. Cynicism and arrogance rule and ‘hard to get ‘’ attitude. The war between sexes acquired the pattern of a competition of gaining emotional independence. Romanticism has a scent of granny’s cold cream, forgotten in a drawer. It reminds of your childhood but you never wear it in public. You don’t want to smell of ‘’ grandma. We are educated not to take emotional risks. He who loves less is more powerful. No pain no game seems to be a good motto in everything but love. In love that means weakness.Wise men say the first 30 seconds are decisive. It’s all you need to know if you could fall in love with someone you see for the first time. Scientifically, love at first sight exists. You should panic. We live in the speed era. You’d better think how many 30 seconds you have wasted so far. You seem to have encountered love at first sight but so many times you could have lived it.We carry a baggage of non-assumed love stories, because the stories do begin once with the decisive moment. It’s for that you need guts.The courage to overcome prejudices and fear of being rejected.So try to look in your 30 second-collection and ask yourself whether you haven’t missed a great love story just because you haven’t had guts

Gay sex,anyone?
Saturday, October 7th, 2006
I click connect and I am logged into the main chat room called # gay. First thing I see is someone with the nick name ‘Pasiv Buc’ asking people to talk to him on the main chat room. The guy is Romanian and his nickname is more like a short info about himself. It means: I am passive and I live in Bucharest. Somebody else has just typed an advert offering a big penis for she-male (a male with breast) on a web cam.

It’s my time to type something and I click send: Anyone wants to talk about gay sex?
Nobody seems to be interested for the next five minutes and I almost gave up hope, when I get a message:
‘I want to talk about it’

His nickname gives no information about himself; it’s more like serial number rather than a nickname.
‘Great ‘I type back.
‘Age, sex, location’ he asks

I explain myself that I am not looking for gay sex and that I am going to use our conversation for an article on a website.
‘I never had sex with a guy….yet’ the reply comes back.
Somehow I don’t believe him so I decide to carry on with our conversation.
I ask him questions and he answers in a way that makes me think he is fully aware that the conversation will end up on a website. I find out that he is well educated, married, with no children and he wants to have gay sex. Anal and 69 to be more specific.
When I ask if he ever considered telling his wife about his sexual desires, his answer comes with no hesitation:
‘No’

I understand the reason why he is choosing to live a double sexual life rather than to admit his sexual preferences .Many gays feel under threat for being discriminated at work and among family and friends, and are afraid of the social death that would follow if they came out as gay in public.

For the time being, it looks like for most Eastern Europeans being gay is a fact most of them would rather keep it for themselves, especially if they live in Eastern Europe.
The mayor of Warsaw, Poland banned the gay pride parade in 2006 claiming that the application for the gay parade had not been properly filed.

In Romania the gay parade was initially refused on grounds that it can not be safely policed, and it took place only because the president itself got involved at the last minute. In Latvia the march sparked outrage and only went ahead after a court overturned a council ban on the event. Prime Minister A. Kalvitis had opposed the event, saying Riga should ‘not promote things like that’.

One thing is for sure; as long there is anyone willing to participate in a gay parade there is more than one willing to throw eggs at them.

Buying back my soul

I am too young for the end to be here,yet I want to make my moment of sincerity public,a beer more that I should have and a post that perhaps I should have never post it.I want to be the rider who falls because he has the courage to climb on the horse instead of spending his life on its knees There were times in my life when I did bit more than I could chew and vomited my dreams on the pavement of my soul. Yes, I did failed often and I will do it again in the future.The only thing left for me is to accept what is happening with a dubious grace that only I can understand.You the reader ,have the power to give me back ,pieces of my soul that you can send it with no address somewhere in the world .As for those of you who have more soul than I do , I salute you.

Coffee ,sex and internet connection

It’s her. It must be her. On the other side of the road, a blonde woman wearing a white top and I wonder if she recognized me. This is not Yahoo Messenger and I don’t have my nickname printed on my forehead.
All she had was two pictures of me and an illusion of whom I might be. This is the only way I can explain myself why a married woman would come and meet a stranger at the traffic light in front of the Stockwell Tube station. The light is still red and I am surrounded by people waiting to cross the road. But I am the only one who is waiting for the green light to sex. Because that is what we have agreed to; just sex.
I am trying to be cool and only now I realized that I haven’t thought of what am I going to say to her. The light change before I can remember a good line from a film or something to inspire me. People are rushing off to the other side of the road before the light will change back to red and I am left behind. I can see her looking at me and I know she knows it’s me. There is no way back now and I walk towards her with a smile on my face, hoping that she will not guess that I am nervous.

‘Hello’ she says when I am in front of her

‘Hello’

‘So what do we do now?’ she asks avoiding looking at me

I feel like laughing. I laugh often when I am nervous. That’s why I, most of the time I can not lie without laughing and I hate that.
Instead of answering, I take her in my arms and kiss her, thinking this is better than any lousy line that I might come up with. She responds to my kiss with such passion that I am starting to feel dizzy.
Last time I have been kissed like that it was years ago and that kiss was the most memorable kiss in my life.Perharps it might turn out to be the best sex ever.

‘Let’s go this way’ and I point towards the bridge.

‘Ok’

I am holding her hand and we both pretend that we are a normal couple yet I am surprised that people don’t pay attention to us in a funny way, and for a moment I wish I had come by car. I notice that she is looking at me when she thinks I can’t see her.

‘There is a hotel not far away from here. But we might have to take the bus as I think its about 20 minutes walk from here.’ Shall we? ‘

‘Smokers, please ‘ I answer to the receptionist’s question. One minute later, I take the card key and we head towards the lift as instructed. The walls in the lift are dressed in mirrors and for the first time I can have a good look at her. She must be a size 12, I reckon. Blue eyes, blond hair and an obvious nervosity that I feel through her grip of my hand. She is good looking and I am thankful for that, as I know I wound dare to back off now.
For few seconds I am having trouble finding the right way to swipe the card key to open the door and I begun to feel uncomfortable thinking that I might swipe the ‘sex meeting’ the same way as I am doing with the card. I am turning the card the other way around and I try again. To my relief, the door opens and I let her get in first.
She leaves her hand bag on a chair and waits for me to close the door behind me. When I turn around she is looking at me:

‘Please. Do it’ she says

I put my hands on her shoulders and push her gently on her knees right in front of me, wondering if I did it too gently. I can see desire in her eyes and that turns me on. Waiting, she follows my hands movements and few seconds later, a warm sensation takes over me. It feels so good and I don’t want her to stop. She did not stop and few weeks later, she whispered:

‘ I love you’

For a moment I thought I didn’t hear right so she said it again, this time louder and looking into my eyes.

‘I really do love you. I don’t expect …’

I didn’t let her finish so I kissed her once again ,hoping that this is just one of those moments that will go away if I ignore it. Later I went to take a shower and I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I was covered in sweat and lost into my own quilt. .When I got back into the room she wasn’t there.

Few years have passed since then and every morning I make myself a coffee and connect to the internet. On Yahoo Messenger, people log on and off sometimes without saying hello or bye.
Her nickname never light up again from that day when she said that she loves me. I still talk to people on Yahoo Messenger; it’s so easy to imagine them in front of their computers with a coffee and trying to remember if they spoke to me before.

MY ADVICE TO MUSLIMS Dt: 20/4/2007
« Thread Started on Apr 20, 2007, 2:23pm » [Quote]
MY ADVICE TO MUSLIMS:

It Is Not Enough To Be Good; One Must Also Show The
Right Path To Others Who Might Otherwise Do Evil.

Dear Muslims!

You know that to eliminate all kinds of vices from
the world and to promote good is the responsibility
of every Muslim. Allah, the Lord of the universe,
says: “You are the best Ummah who have been created
to show the right path to the people. You command for
doing good and forbid from doing evil, and you have
faith in Allah”

The Holy Prophet (SAW) has also said that everyone
amongst you is a caretaker and is responsible for his
subordinates on the Day of Judgement. Rulers will be
answerable for the citizens of their state, every
family head will be accountable for the members of
his family and will be asked as to what he did for
their reformation, education and better life. He will
be asked as to whether he forbid them from adopting
the bad ways, and helped them in leading a pious life
or not. The Holy Quran has called this task as
“Enjoining (People) To Do Good and Forbidding (Them)
From Doing Evil.”

Respected Muslims! The world history reveals that
until Muslims performed the task of commanding the
people to do good and barring them from doing evil,
the pious people remained dominant in those societies
and there was peace and tranquility and satanic
forces were subdued. But, when this collective
responsibility was designated only to clerics, and
the common Muslims ignored this task, in spite of the
efforts of the clerics, waywardness spread quickly.
A wave of offenses, terrorism, tyranny, evils, sins,
ignorance and anarchy engulfed almost every segment
of life. Disorder, commotion and chaos were on the
rise in the world society, wrecking the peace of all
mankind.

The Holy Prophet (SAW) has warned of this danger in
these words:

“I swear to the Lord Who is the Master of my soul
(it is your duty that) you must enjoin (the people)
to do good and forbid (them) from doing evil,
otherwise, the day is not far when Allah Almighty
will unleash His wrath on you, and then you will
pray (for help) to Allah, but your prayers will not
be answered.” (Trimdi)

The world is facing disaster upon disaster every day
and people are expecting a major catastrophe. The
deeds that have been forbidden by God are being
committed openly. The evils are increasing, while the
virtues are fading out gradually. Tyranny, oppression
and carnage are going on, liars and cheats are
overcoming. Terrorism, bribery, corruption, evil,
nudity, vulgarity and wickedness have assaulted the
world. It seems we have reached inferno before the
Last Day. History tells us that such a situation
arises when people are being cursed by God.

It is feared that members of the previous generations
will be accountable for their individual deeds on the
Day of Judgment, but present generation will be
thrown as a whole into hell after a collective
prosecution, because the nobles of this generation
remained as silent spectators instead of restraining
the wrongdoers from committing, cruelty, sins and
misdeeds.

The Divine punishment to an ancient civilization
seconds this fear. There were three groups during
that period. One was of knaves, the second was of the
people who did good deeds but did not halt the
disobedients from transgression. The third group was
of the people who followed the Divine doctrines as
well as restrained others from disobeying them. When
God cursed the nation, the people exempted from this
torment were those who had been observing the limits
fixed by their Master and were stopping others from
wrongdoing as well.

There is another but similar happening. The residents
of a town had been engulfed by an ocean of sins.
However, there was a noble man who was always busy in
worshipping God, but he did not bother about
persuading others to give up their bad ways. When God
ordered the angels to destroy the town, He said:
” Overturn the town on the person who was anxious to
save himself from the Divine Punishment, but was not
endeavoring to save others from it”.

I request the virtuous people of the world that they
should not only depend upon their prayers to save
themselves from the Divine Punishment; rather they
should lead the Evil Doers and followers of Satan who
have gone astray, to the right path. They should
undertake this task against Evil Doers with full
determination. Only then will their virtues and
prayers save them from the Divine Punishment.

Defense Attorney:
Will you please state your age?

Little Old Lady:
I am 86 years old.

Defense Attorney:
Will you tell us, in your own words, what happened the night of April
1st?

Little Old Lady:
There I was, sitting there in my swing on my front porch on a warm
spring evening,
when a young man comes creeping up on the porch and sat down beside me.

Defense Attorney:
Did you know him?

Little Old Lady:
No, but he sure was friendly.

Defense Attorney:
What happened after he sat down?

Little Old Lady:
He started to rub my thigh.

Defense Attorney:
Did you stop him?

Little Old Lady:
No, I didn’t stop him.

Defense Attorney:
Why not?

Little Old Lady:
It felt good. Nobody had done that since my Albert died some 30 years
ago.

Defense Attorney:
What happened next?

Little Old Lady:
He began to rub my breasts.

Defense Attorney:
Did you stop him then?

Little Old Lady:
No, I did not stop him.

Defense Attorney:
Why not?

Little Old Lady:
His rubbing made me feel all alive and excited. I haven’t felt that good
in years!

Defense Attorney:
What happened next?

Little Old Lady:
Well, by then, I was feeling so “spicy” that I just laid down and told
him
“Take me, young man. Take me now!”

Defense Attorney:
Did he take you?

Little Old Lady:
Hell, no! He just yelled, “April Fool!” And that’s when I shot him, the
little bastard.

An elderly gentleman went to the local drug store and asked the pharmacist for Viagra.

The pharmacist said, “That’s no problem. How many do you want?”

The man answered, “Just a few, maybe 4, but cut each one in 4 pieces.”

The pharmacist said “That won’t do you any good.”

The elderly gentleman said “That’s all right. I don’t need them for sex anymore, as I’m over 80 years old. I just want it to stick out far enough so I don’t pee on my shoes”.

One day, a diver was enjoying the aquatic world 20 feet below sea
level. He noticed a guy at the same depth he was, with no scuba gear
on whatsoever.
The diver went below another 10 feet, but the guy joined him a minute
later. The diver went below 15 more feet, and a minute later, the same
guy joined him.

This confused the diver, so he took out a waterproof pad and pencil,
and wrote, “Amazing! How are you able to stay this deep down without
equipment?”

The guy took the pencil and pad, erased what the diver had written,
and wrote, “I’m drowning, you moron!”

A young man named Gordon bought a horse from an old farmer for £100.00 The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day, but when the farmer drove up he said, “Sorry son, but I have some bad news… the horse is on my truck, but unfortunately he’s dead.”
Gordon replied, “Well then, just give me my money back.”
The farmer said, “I can’t do that, because I’ve spent it already.”
Gordon said, “OK then, well just unload the horse anyway.”
The farmer asked, “What are you going to do with him?”
Gordon answered, “I’m going to raffle him off.”
To which the farmer exclaimed, “Surely you can’t raffle off a dead horse!”
But Gordon, with a wicked smile on his face said, “Of course I can, you watch me. I just won’t bother to tell anybody that he’s dead.”

A month later the farmer met up with Gordon and asked, “What happened with that dead horse?”
Gordon said, “I raffled him off, sold 500 tickets at two pounds a piece, and made a huge, fat profit!!”

Totally amazed, the farmer asked, “Didn’t anyone complain that you had stolen their money because you lied about the horse being dead?”

To which Gordon replied, “The only guy who found out about the horse being dead was the raffle winner when he came to claim his prize. So I gave him his £2 raffle ticket money back plus an extra £200, which as you know is double the going rate for a horse, so he thought I was a great guy!!”

Gordon grew up and eventually became the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and no matter how many times he lied, or how much money he stole from the British voters, as long as he gave them back some of the stolen money, most of them, unfortunately, still thought he was a great guy.

The moral of this story is that, if you think Gordon is about to play fair and do something for the everyday people of the country for once in his miserable, lying life, think again my friend, because you’ll be better off flogging a dead horse!

THE AMAZING FRANK FELDMAN.
A man walks into the street and manages to hail a taxi that just
happens to be passing by. He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie
says, “Perfect timing. You’re just like Frank.” Passenger: “Who?”
Cabbie: “Frank Feldman. He’s a guy who did everything right all
the time. Like my coming along when you needed a taxi, things
happened like that to Frank Feldman every single time.”
Passenger: “There must have been times when crap happened,
surely?.” Cabbie: “Not for Frank Feldman. He was a terrific athlete. He
could have won the Grand-Slam at tennis. He could golf with the
pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway
star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an
amazing guy.” Passenger: “Sounds like he was something really
special.”Cabbie: “There’s more… He had a memory like a computer.
Could remember everybody’s birthday. He knew all about wine,
which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could
fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street
blacks out. But Frankie Boy, he could do everything right.”
Passenger. “Wow, some guy then.”
Cabbie: “He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic to
avoid jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But
Frank, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat
a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back
even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always
immaculate, shoes highly polished too – he was the perfect man!
He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Frank
Feldman.” Passenger: “An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?”
Cabbie: “Well, I never actually met

I just married his f***ing widow

This bloke is sitting reading his Daily Record newspaper when his wife

sneaks up behind him and whacks him on the head with a frying pan.

“Whit wis that fur?” he cries.

“That wis for the piece of paper in yir trooser pockets with the name

Mary-Rose written oan it,” said she.

“Don’t be daft,” he explains, “two weeks ago when I went to the races and Mary-Rose wis the name of one o’ the horses I bet on.”

She seems satisfied and apologises, and goes off to do work around the house. Three days later he’s again sitting in his chair reading when she nails him again with the frying pan, knocking him out cold.

When he comes around, he says, “whit the hell wis that fur?”

“Your horse phoned!” she said.

A wee Glesga man and a woman who have never met before find
themselves in the same sleeping carriage of a train.

After the initial embarrassment, they both manage to get to sleep, the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower. In the middle of the night, the woman leans over and says, “I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m freezing and I was wondering if you could possibly pass me another blanket.”

The man leans out and with a glint in his eye, says,

“I’ve got a better idea, let’s kidd-oan wir married.”

“Why not,” giggles the woman.”

“Good”, he replies”

Get your own blanket “!

A Glesga woman from Glasgow’s west-end was staying in a hotel in Edinburgh, and she phoned room service for some pepper.

“Black pepper, or white pepper?” Asked the concierge.

“Toilet pepper!” yelled the woman!

A wee Glasgae boy comes home from school and tells his mother he’s been given a part in the school play.

‘Wonderful. Whit part is it?’ she asks.

The boy says, ‘I play the part of the Scottish husband.’

”Go back an’ tell that teacher you want a speaking part ” !

One day the Primary 1 teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class.

She came to the part of the story where the first pig was trying to accumulate the building materials for his home.

She read, “…And so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and said,

“Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that straw to build my house?”

The teacher paused then asked the class, “And what do you think that man said?”

One little boy raised his hand and said, “I think he said bloody hell! A talking pig!'”

A wee Glasgae woman and a baby were in the doctor’s examining
room, waiting for the doctor to come in. The doctor arrived, examined the baby, checked his weight, found it somewhat
below normal, and asked if the baby was breast fed or bottle fed.

“Breast fed,” she replied.

Well, strip down to your waist,” the doctor ordered.

So she did.

He pressed, kneaded, rolled, cupped, and pinched both breasts for a while in a detailed, rigorously thorough examination.

Motioning to her to get dressed he said, “No wonder this baby is under weight.

You don’t have any milk !”

“I know,” she said, “Ah’m his Granny, but I’m glad I came!”

It was the talk of the town when an 80-year-old man married a 20-year-old girl.
After a year she went into the hospital to give birth.
The nurse came out to congratulate the fellow.
“This is amazing. How do you do it at your age?”
He answered, “You’ve got to keep that old motor running.”
The following year she gave birth again.
The same nurse said, “You really are amazing. How do you do it?”
He again said, “You’ve got to keep the old motor running.”
The same thing happened the next year.
The nurse said, “You must be quite a man.”
He responded, “You’ve got to keep that old motor running.”
The nurse then said, “Well, you had better change the oil, this
one’s black!”

A couple had two little boys, ages eight and ten, who were excessively
mischievous.
The two were always getting into trouble and their parents could be
confident that if any mischief occurred in their town, their two young
sons were involved in some capacity. The parents were at their wit’s
end as to what to do about their sons’ behavior.

The parents had heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in
disciplining children in the past, so they contacted him, and he
agreed to give it his best shot. He asked to see the boys
individually, so the eight-year-old was sent to meet with him first.
The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly, “Where is God?”

The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question in an
even sterner tone, “Where is God?”

Again the boy made no attempt to answer, so the clergyman raised his
voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face, “WHERE IS
GOD?”

At that, the boy bolted from the room, ran directly home, and slammed
himself in his closet. His older brother followed him into the closet
and said, “What happened?”

The younger brother replied, “We are in BIG trouble this time. God is
missing and they think we did it!”

One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, “My dear child, why are you crying?”

The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family.

The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with pearls. “Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, “No.”

The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a silver thimble ringed with sapphires.

“Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked. Again, the seamstress replied, “No.”

The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble. “Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, “Yes.”

The Lord was pleased with the woman’s honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water.

When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, “Why are you crying?”

“Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!”

The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney.

“Is this your husband?” the Lord asked. “Yes,” cried the seamstress.

The Lord was furious. “You lied! That is an untruth!”

The seamstress replied, “Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said ‘no’ to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said ‘no’ to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said ‘yes,’ you would have given me all three. Lord, I’m not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so
THAT’S why I said ‘yes’ to George Clooney.”

And so the Lord let her keep him.

The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it’s for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others.

That’s our story, and we’re sticking to it.

Signed,

All Us Women

A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a
monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and
says, “My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the
night?”
The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even fix
his car.
As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound.
The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but
they say, “We can`t tell you. You`re not a monk.”
The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and goes
about His merry way.
Some years later, the same man breaks down in front of the
same monastery. The monks accept him, feed him, even fix his
car. That night, he hears the same strange noise that he had
heard years earlier.
The next morning, he asks what it is, but the monks reply,
“We can`t tell you. You`re not a monk.”
The man says, “All right, all right. I`m *dying* to know.
If the only way I can find out what that sound was is to
become a monk, how do I become a monk?”
The monks reply, “You must travel the Earth and tell us how
many blades of grass there are and the exact number of sand
pebbles. When you find these numbers, you will become a
monk.”
The man sets about His task. Forty-five years later, he
returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He says, “I
have traveled the Earth and have found what you have asked
for. There are 145,236,284,232 blades of grass and
281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the Earth.”
The monks reply, “Congratulations! You are now a monk. We
shall now show you the way to the sound.” The monks lead the
man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, “The sound is
right behind that door.”
The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked. He
says, “Real funny. may I have the key?” The monks give him
the key, and he opens
the door. Behind the wooden door is another door made of
stone. The man requests the key to the stone door. The
monks give him the key, and he
opens it, only to find a door made of ruby. He asks for yet
another key from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door
is *another* door, this one made of sapphire. So it went
until the man had gone through doors of emerald, silver,
topaz, amethyst. . .
Finally, the monks say, “This is the last key to the last
door.”
The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the door, turns
the knob, and behind that door he is amazed to find the
source of that strange sound.

-> Scroll down if you want to know what the sound was <- But I can`t tell you what it is because. .. you`re not a monk!

Drunk as they are, they try and rob the place but are too drunk to pull it off. As the alarms scream, they leg it out of the bank and down the alley. Hot on their heals are the cops, responding to the alarm. As the three drunks round a bend, they spot a Cats and Dogs Home and jump over the fence into the kennel yard. They see three burlap sacks lying on the ground and they each crawl into an empty bag. The cops leap over the fence behind them and spot the three bulging sacks on the ground. One cop kicks the first sack and the Englishman says, “Bark! Bark!” “Ah, must be a dog!” says the cop and he kicks the second sack. The Scotsman says, “Meow!” and the cop nods his head, exclaiming, “Must be cats!” and turns his focus on the last sack, kicking it sharply. The Irishman cries out, “Potatoes!” A man walks into a pub A man walks into a pub. He greets the barman and orders a pint. As the barman draws it, the man begins to hear two noisy young men at the end of the bar. “What county did you say you where from?” asked the first. “Why, County Clare.” the second replied. “Well, I’ll be damned! I’m from County Clare, too! What town?” “Why, I’m from Ennis.” “I’ll be damned! I’m from Ennis, too! What parish are you from?’ “Saint Francis.” “Well, I’ll be damned! I belonged to Saint Francis’, too. What street did you live on?” “Why, Parnell Street.” “I’ll be dammed. I lived on Parnell Street. What was your mother’s maiden name?” “Leahy.” “I’ll be damned . . .” After listening to all this, the man calls the barman over and says, “Sean, what’s with them two?” “Not much,” he replied. “Just the Mulcahy twins drunk again!” Falling Down Drunk Sean had been drinking at his local pub all day and most of the night. Mick, the bartender says “You’ll not be drinking anymore tonight, Sean”. Sean replies “OK Mick, I’ll be on my way then.” Sean spins around on his stool and steps off. He falls flat on his face. “Shit” he says and pulls himself up by the stool and dusts himself off. He takes a step towards the door and falls flat on his face. He looks to the doorway and thinks to himself that if he can just get to the door and get some fresh air he’ll be fine. He belly crawls to the door and shimmies up the door jamb. He sticks his head outside and takes a deep breath of fresh air. He feels much better and takes a step out onto the sidewalk. He falls flat on his face. “I’m fookin locked” he says. He can see his house just a few doors down, and crawls to the door and shimmies up the door jamb, opens the door and shimmies inside. He takes a look up the stairs and says “No fookin way.” He crawls up the stairs to his bedroom door and says “I can make it to the bed.” He takes a step into the room and falls flat on his face. He says “Fook it” and crawls into bed. The next morning, his wife, Mary, comes into the room carrying a cup of coffee and says “Get up Sean. Did you have a bit to drink last night?” Sean says “I did Mary. I was fookin locked. But how’d you know?” She answered “Mick called.

Well, strip down to your waist,” the doctor ordered. So she did. He pressed, kneaded, rolled, cupped, and pinched both breasts for a while in a detailed, rigorously thorough examination. Motioning to her to get dressed he said, “No wonder this baby is under weight.

After a year she went into the hospital to give birth. The nurse came out to congratulate the fellow. “This is amazing. How do you do it at your age?” He answered, “You’ve got to keep that old motor running.” The following year she gave birth again. The same nurse said, “You really are amazing. How do you do it?” He again said, “You’ve got to keep the old motor running.” The same thing happened the next year. The nurse said, “You must be quite a man.” He responded, “You’ve got to keep that old motor running.” The nurse then said, “Well, you had better change the oil, this one’s black!” A couple had two little boys, ages eight and ten, who were excessively mischievous. The two were always getting into trouble and their parents could be confident that if any mischief occurred in their town, their two young sons were involved in some capacity. The parents were at their wit’s end as to what to do about their sons’ behavior. The parents had heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children in the past, so they contacted him, and he agreed to give it his best shot. He asked to see the boys individually, so the eight-year-old was sent to meet with him first. The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly, “Where is God?” The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, “Where is God?” Again the boy made no attempt to answer, so the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face, “WHERE IS GOD?” At that, the boy bolted from the room, ran directly home, and slammed himself in his closet. His older brother followed him into the closet and said, “What happened?” The younger brother replied, “We are in BIG trouble this time. God is missing and they think we did it!” One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, “My dear child, why are you crying?” The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family. The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with pearls. “Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, “No.” The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a silver thimble ringed with sapphires. “Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked. Again, the seamstress replied, “No.” The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble. “Is this your thimble?” the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, “Yes.” The Lord was pleased with the woman’s honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy. Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water. When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, “Why are you crying?” “Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!” The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney. “Is this your husband?” the Lord asked. “Yes,” cried the seamstress. The Lord was furious. “You lied! That is an untruth!” The seamstress replied, “Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said ‘no’ to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said ‘no’ to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said ‘yes,’ you would have given me all three. Lord, I’m not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT’S why I said ‘yes’ to George Clooney.” And so the Lord let her keep him. The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it’s for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others. That’s our story, and we’re sticking to it.

You`re not a monk.” The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and goes about His merry way. Some years later, the same man breaks down in front of the same monastery. The monks accept him, feed him, even fix his car. That night, he hears the same strange noise that he had heard years earlier. The next morning, he asks what it is, but the monks reply, “We can`t tell you. You`re not a monk.” The man says, “All right, all right. I`m *dying* to know. If the only way I can find out what that sound was is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?” The monks reply, “You must travel the Earth and tell us how many blades of grass there are and the exact number of sand pebbles. When you find these numbers, you will become a monk.” The man sets about His task. Forty-five years later, he returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He says, “I have traveled the Earth and have found what you have asked for. There are 145,236,284,232 blades of grass and 281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the Earth.” The monks reply, “Congratulations! You are now a monk. We shall now show you the way to the sound.” The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, “The sound is right behind that door.” The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked. He says, “Real funny. may I have the key?” The monks give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the wooden door is another door made of stone. The man requests the key to the stone door. The monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to find a door made of ruby. He asks for yet another key from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door is *another* door, this one made of sapphire. So it went until the man had gone through doors of emerald, silver, topaz, amethyst. . . Finally, the monks say, “This is the last key to the last door.” The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the door, turns the knob, and behind that door he is amazed to find the source of that strange sound. -> Scroll down if you want to know what the sound was <-

But I can`t tell you what it is because. .. you`re not a

An Englishman, a Scotsman, and an Irishman get twisted at the local pub one night and conspire to rob the local bank. Drunk as they are, they try and rob the place but are too drunk to pull it off. As the alarms scream, they leg it out of the bank and down the alley. Hot on their heals are the cops, responding to the alarm. As the three drunks round a bend, they spot a Cats and Dogs Home and jump over the fence into the kennel yard. They see three burlap sacks lying on the ground and they each crawl into an empty bag. The cops leap over the fence behind them and spot the three bulging sacks on the ground. One cop kicks the first sack and the Englishman says, “Bark! Bark!” “Ah, must be a dog!” says the cop and he kicks the second sack. The Scotsman says, “Meow!” and the cop nods his head, exclaiming, “Must be cats!” and turns his focus on the last sack, kicking it sharply. The Irishman cries out, “Potatoes!”

A man walks into a pub

A man walks into a pub.
He greets the barman and orders a pint.
As the barman draws it, the man begins to hear two
noisy young men at the end of the bar.
“What county did you say you where from?” asked the first.
“Why, County Clare.” the second replied.
“Well, I’ll be damned! I’m from County Clare, too! What town?”
“Why, I’m from Ennis.”
“I’ll be damned! I’m from Ennis, too! What parish are you from?’
“Saint Francis.”
“Well, I’ll be damned! I belonged to Saint Francis’, too.
What street did you live on?”
“Why, Parnell Street.”
“I’ll be dammed. I lived on Parnell Street.
What was your mother’s maiden name?”
“Leahy.”
“I’ll be damned . . .”
After listening to all this, the man calls
the barman over and says, “Sean, what’s with them two?”
“Not much,” he replied. “Just the Mulcahy twins drunk again!”

Falling Down Drunk

Sean had been drinking at his local pub all day and most of the night. Mick, the bartender says “You’ll not be drinking anymore tonight, Sean”. Sean replies “OK Mick, I’ll be on my way then.” Sean spins around on his stool and steps off. He falls flat on his face. “Shit” he says and pulls himself up by the stool and dusts himself off. He takes a step towards the door and falls flat on his face. He looks to the doorway and thinks to himself that if he can just get to the door and get some fresh air he’ll be fine. He belly crawls to the door and shimmies up the door jamb. He sticks his head outside and takes a deep breath of fresh air. He feels much better and takes a step out onto the sidewalk. He falls flat on his face. “I’m fookin locked” he says. He can see his house just a few doors down, and crawls to the door and shimmies up the door jamb, opens the door and shimmies inside. He takes a look up the stairs and says “No fookin way.” He crawls up the stairs to his bedroom door and says “I can make it to the bed.” He takes a step into the room and falls flat on his face. He says “Fook it” and crawls into bed.
The next morning, his wife, Mary, comes into the room carrying a cup of coffee and says “Get up Sean. Did you have a bit to drink last night?” Sean says “I did Mary. I was fookin locked. But how’d you know?” She answered “Mick called. You left your wheelchair at the pub.”

Hi all,
I’m currently studying Photography at Camberwell College of Art in London where I live.

Due to my intertest in the Polish culture, I am doing my current photographic project for my university on documenting the Polish culture in London. I am focusing on the Polish ccommunity in Hammersmith, as this is where my exhibition will be held, and Hammersmith is home to the largest Polish community in London.

Do you live, work or study in Hammersmith, would you let me take your portrait for a small art exhibition?
I dont mind your gender or age, or where the photograph is taken, as long as its taken in Hammersmith and you are of Polish origin.

I aim to take as many portraits as possible over the next two weeks.

I would really appreciate if any of you would participate, or if you know anyone who might be, to pass on my message/email add.

thank you for taking the time to read my email, and i hope that I hear from you shortly

Would that be anyone who claims to be one? Does one really have to have a standard background? Or perhaps anyone lost on-line can have a go at it?

I visited Poland for the first time a couple of weeks ago for a pre-Christmas break. I visited Warsaw and had a fantastic time. I was with two other friends and we had a couple of wild party nights out.
Polish girls can really have fun, it makes a great change from the London scene which is such hard work to be honest.
I partied quite a bit with one Polish girl and she took me to Cinnamon when things had died down at the club we were at. All I can say is- wow. I’ve never seen so many hot girls in a club in my life.
Needless to say, I’ve kept in touch with that girl, and I’m booking a ticket for Feb trip out again for some more Polish partying. I’m still searching for my future wife and intend to focus my efforts on Poland as I much prefer them to the London girls.
Great fun!

Cum sa deschizi un cont de banca

Munca si drepturile tale in UK Cum sa devi Self Employed Cum sa lucrezi in Agricultura Pe noi cine ne iubeste Cand un ziar nu este un ziar

Cum sa iti faci tara mandra de tine Ghidul emigrantului Sistemul de invatamant britanic Permis de Conducere Au-pairs in UK Anglia

In UK cele mai intalnite conturi de banca sunt:

Basic Account sau Deposit Account-este OK daca ai nevoie sa fi platit prin cecuri sau transfere bancare direct in cont.

Practic e un cont de banca inferior sau ‘cash card’ -poti scoate bani de la masini de bani.Nu primesti carte de cec ( pt a plati tu in cecuri )si de obicei nu poti face plati electronice gen: la magazin sau pe internet-sau prin telefon. Insa este popular deoarece bancile nu sunt la fel de pretentioase atunci cand iti cere sa dovedesti identitatea sau adresa ta.Pentru a evita surprize nedorite,intreaba banca respectiva despre cum poti folosi contul respectiv.

Current Account -iti ofera Cheque Book -Carte de cecuri-(pt a plati tu prin cec),cash card-pt a scoate bani de la masini de bani,debit card-pt a face plati electronice gen: magazine,telefon,internet; Plati Direct Debit -daca trebuie sa platesti lunar de exemplu chitanta de telefon ,poti aranja ca plata sa se faca automat ,fara ca tu sa te deranjezi de fiecare data .( majoritatea bancilor te penalizeaza cu amende pana la £ 45.00 daca nu ai bani in cont atunci cand se face plata Direct Debit); Overdraft -este posibilitatea de a cheltui bani pe care nu ai in cont.Overdraft si Credit Card e bine sa le ai ,dar sa nu le folosesti.

Student Account- genul asta de cont de banca este oferit doar celor care pot dovedi ca sunt studenti.Avantaje limitate sau necunoscute la moment.

Actele necesare pt a deschide un cont de banca

Pasaport-este cel mai cerut

Buletin sau Carte de Identitate

Permis de conducere-Daca nu ai Permis de Conducere ,poti aplica la DVLA (organizatia care se ocupa cu eliberarea permiselor de conducere in UK) completezi niste formulare pentru Provisional Driving Licence -nu ai voie sa conduci dar ai voie sa incepi lecti de conducere(le gasesti la posta formularele gratis,au niste coduri pe ele sau intrebi la ghiseu) iti vine acasa in aproximativ 2-4 saptamani. Partea folsitoare cu Provisional Driving Licence este ca in unele cazuri il poti folosi ca un “card de identitate” si iti apare adresa pe el.

Contract de chirie-cand inchiriezi o camera sau locuinta in mod normal se face un contract intre tine si landlord-propietarul locuintei-sau agentia de locuinte,care de obicei poate fi un contract pe hartie sau un carnetel in cazul in care ai inchiriat doar o camera.

Scrisoare de la angajator-employer.Pe scrisoare scrie ceva simplu de genul : Domnul /Doamna lucreaza la noi la moment si in viitorul apropiat.

Bill -factura/chitanta pe numele tau ,pt a dovedi adresa.Poate fi bill de telefon,gaz,taxa de primarie-council tax etc.De obicei nu se acepta billuri de telefoane mobile.Daca ai inchiriat o camera ,poti cere celor din casa sa iti schimbe un Bill pe numele tau pt o perioada de timp.

Pay-Slip-fluturas de la munca sau o hartie care arata salariu tau

Electoral Register-registru electoral. Este o lista care bancile o folosesc foarte des iar romanii au drept de vot pentru alegerile locale si cele europene, Pentru a te inregistra pe Electoral Register contactatiezi pe Electoral Registration Officer la primaria-consiliul tau local sau completezi scrisoarea trimisa de ei,deoarece este o cerinta legala pt ca guvernul sa stie cate persoane si cine anume locuieste la adresa ta.

In mod neoficial iti pot spune ca unele banci incalca regula de calificare pt a deschide un cont de banca.Exista cazuri in care se deschide un cont de banca doar cu un permis de conducere sau I.D (Buletin de Indentitate.)De obicei ti se cere sa te reintorci tu personal pt a ridica Cardul si nu il trimite prin posta.In mod normal primesti P.I.N-ul -codul format din 4 cifre ,iar dupa cateva zile urmeaza si Cardul in posta.De obicei esti invitat intr-o camera separata ,ti se ofera un loc, ti se cere actele si vei completa un formular.Totul procesul de deschidere a unui cont dureaza in medie de 15-30 de minute

Te poti astepta sa te plimbi de la o banca la alta,insa in 90% din cazuri ai sa reusesti sa iti deschizi un cont de banca fara probleme daca ai minim 2 dovezi de identitate si adresa.

De asemenea ,exista optiunea de a plati pe altcineva sa iti deschida un cont de banca sau poti cere ajutorul unui prieten care e mai vechi in UK.

In cazul in care platesti pt a deschide un cont de banca,spune-i persoanei care te ajuta sa deschizi cont de banca contra unei sume de bani ,Salut din partea www.easteurope.org.uk cu mesajul : Ai castigat de data asta .

Au pairs http://www.aa-aupairs.com Atentie , ei sunt organizatie comerciala ( practic tu daca doresti sa fi Au Pair esti materia prima pt ei, insa la moment nu avem informatii reliable despre a fi Au Pair fara a plati. O solutie are ca tu sa postezi un anunt ca doresti sa fi au-pair, iar daca primesti raspuns , vei putea primi informatile necesare pt. ce urmeaza ca tu sa faci. Dupa cate stim, este nevoie de o scrisoare de la familia respectiva care doreste sa te angajeze iar scrisoarea respectiva o trimiti la Home Office impreuna cu Documente de Identitate.

Pentru a lucra in Agricultura sau in Fermele din UK e nevoie sa ai peste 18 ani, sa ai experienta( sau sa creezi impresia ca ai expereienta)

la agricultura si cunostinte de limba engleza.

Marea Britanie a alocat permise de munca pt 16.250 de persoane din toata lumea care vor fi acceptate sa lucreze, timp de sase luni, in UK.

Romanii pot lucra in Marea Britanie in agricultura, in baza Schemei Lucratorilor Sezonieri din Agricultura, program derulat de catre

Ministerul britanic de Interne prin intermediul unor operatori autorizati. Potrivit Oficiului pentru Migratia Fortei de Munca,

activitatile desfasurate vor fi cele de plantare si strangere a recoltelor, procesare sau prelucrare derulate in cadrul fermei,

ambalare legume, fructe si flori si ingrijirea animalelor.

Anul acesta sunt disponibile 16.250 de locuri de munca si cel putin 40% din acestea sunt alocate lucratorilor romani si bulgari.

Ora de munca se plateste cu 5,35 lire,care este salariul minim pe economie in UK

O parte din operatorii/agentiile de recutare autorizati sunt fermieri care desfasoara aceasta activitate in nume propriu, altii recruteaza personal

in numele altor fermieri si crescatori de animale, astfel ca acestia pot plasa forta de munca oriunde pe teritoriul tarii.

Comisioanele ce va vor fi percepute variaza intre 5 si 172 de lire sterline, sume ce sunt solicitate pentru cazare,

pentru constituirea diferitelor depozite etc. Daca esti acceptat ti se va elibera un card de lucrator,

direct de catre operatori, anterior datei de incepere a activitatii. Aceste carduri au acelasi rol ca si permisele de munca.

Contractele oferite sunt pentru sase luni

Durata sederii ca lucrator in cadrul acestui program este de minimum cinci saptamani si maximum sase luni,

dupa care persoana respectiva va putea pleca din nou pentru un loc de munca in agricultura, dupa trei luni.

Cum sa afli mai multe amanunte

Daca doresti sa te inscrii in cadrul acestui program, trebuie sa te adresezi direct operatorilor autorizati

de catre Ministerul britanic de Interne sau agentiilor care actioneaza in numele acestora in Romania.

Lista operatorilor britanici, impreuna cu datele lor de contact, este disponibila

pe site-ul http://www.ind.homeoffice.gov.uk/6353/56080/56114/sawsoperatordetails1.pdf.

In cazul in care platesti pt a lucra in Agricultura ,spune-i persoanei care te ajuta sa lucrezi in Agricultura contra unei sume de bani ,Salut din partea www.easteurope.org.uk cu mesajul : Ai castigat de data asta .

Cum sa devi Self-Employed-CIS card,etc
Cum sa deschizi un cont de banca Munca si drepturile tale in UK Cum sa lucrezi in Agricultura Pe noi cine ne iubeste Cand un ziar nu este un ziar

Cum sa iti faci tara mandra de tine Ghidul emigrantului Sistemul de invatamant britanic Permis de Conducere Au-pairs in UK Anglia

Atentie: Regulamentul in legatura cu CIS card sa schimbat recent. Dupa ce ne cade si noua fisa ,vom publica ghidul.Daca poti ajuta,nu te refuzam , insa iti oferim un scaun la masa celor care isi pierde timpul liber pt. a ajuta pe cei mai putin informati. Asta inseamna ca nu practicam cultul personalitati si ca nu vei avea succes mai mare la sexul opus, ori o armata de fani care iti va explica cat de nobil este cea ce faci. Avem nevoie de informatie valida. Make the world a better place, at least let others know that your spirit is here to help, you might get free beer in heaven.( That’s what I ‘ve been told )

Self Employed inseamna ca iti deschizi propia afacere, insa nu esti companie gen LTD -SRL.Deoarece United Kingdom ofera drept de munca pt romani in UK ca Self Employed ,optiunea asta va fi aleasa de majoritatea romanilor nou veniti care doresc sa munceasca legal.De la Constructii,pana la femei de servici -cleaners etc ,domeniul de activitate poate fi divers.Unele companii ,de exemplu ”angajeaza ” muncitori pe baza de Self Employed deoarece nu au responsabilitate fata de tine din punct de vedere legal ,sa iti plateasca concediu de odihna; concediu in caz de accident-boala,etc.In situatia asta ,tu devi Sub-Contractor iar compania respectiva este Contractor.

Pentru a de deveni Self Employed in UK,va trebui sa te inregistrezi la http://www.inlandrevenue.gov.uk/ , o poti face pe internet (deoarece au probleme cu lumea care inseala sistemul online nu este intodeauna disponibil)telefon :08459 15 45 15 ,prin posta dupa ce completezi formularul pe care il poti descarca si tipari aici http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/forms/cwf1.pdf sau mai simplu te duci la unul din numeroasele Birourii Inland Revenue .

Tot procesul dureaza de obicei 30 minute,lumea este amabila cu tine chiar daca nu vorbesti bine engleza.Ai nevoie de 2 documente de identitate si dovada de adresa. Exemplu : Passport si un Bill de telefon.Daca nu ai NI -National Insurance-Numar Social (fiecare persoana din UK are un cod gen Carte de Munca) vei primi in aproximativ 30 de zile ,un card de Self Employed temporar care este valabil 6 luni sau 1 an de zile de regula.Teoretic ai drept de munca din momentul in care te-ai inregistrat si la Home Office, anutand ca ai devenit self-employed chiar daca nu ai primit inca Cardul,insa e bine sa verifici asta cu persoana care te inregistreaza prin a cere informatile necesare cerute de un posibil Contractor (asta in cazul in care ai gasit deja de munca si ti sa cerut sa fi Self Employed)

Va trebui sa dovedesti ca fuctionezi ca self employed prin a arata contracte incheiate cu clienti sau Invoice- chitante de plata

Pentru a capata NI ( National Insurance) trebuie sa ai drept de munca. Daca nu ai drept de munca, trebuie sa devi Self Employed intai pentru a te califica si pentru NI.

CIS card de obicei se refera la cei care lucreaza in Constructii ,care au o schema de inregistrare aparte la Inland Revenue.

La sfarsitul fiecarui an financiar ,va trebui sa completezi Self-Assessed Tax Return,prin care declari cati bani ai castigat si se va calcula cati bani vei fi nevoit sa platesti in taxe.Asta ar trebui sa explice de ce este usor sa de devi Self Employed ,sau de ce Inland Revenue sunt asa amabili cu tine la inceput

Pentru cei care doresc sa isi deschida o companie gen S.R.L sau in engleza LTD ,puteti gasi informatile necesare aici http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/ De obicei este nevoie minim de 2 persoane pt a forma compania, una ca director si una ca secretar. Exista de asemenea o taxa pt a inregistra compania ( 20 de lire) insa are sens financiar si moral pt tine ,sa completezi tu insuti actele necesare deoarece este doar un formular. Poti economisi if felul asta intre 200 de lire si 350 de lire. Poate nu suna mult dar daca nu te descurci in a completa un formular si a taia costurile inutile ,este foarte posibil ca tu sa esuezi lamentabil din moment ce iti lipseste spiritul necesar pt a avea suces.

In cazul in care platesti pt a deveni Self Employed ,spune-i persoanei care te ajuta sa devi Self Employed contra unei sume de bani ,Salut din partea www.easteurope.org.uk cu mesajul : Ai castigat de data asta .

Au-pairs in UK Anglia si self-employed

Dupa nenumarate tentative de a descalci incurcatele ite ale birocratiei si formularelor aparute la 1 ianuarie 2007 pentru Romania si Bulgaria,am hotarat sa scriu un mic ghid pentru a fi de folos celor care doresc informatii si nu au sursele sau cunostintele pentru a le obtine.Formularul BR1(denumit popular si blue certificate sau blue card din cauza culorii sale-in cazul celor care aplica pt work permit si au un an legal in uk inainte de 1 ianuarie 2007)poate fi folosit de catre :

c)Daca intentionezi sa te angajezi si esti sotul/sotia sau partenerul civil al unei persoane de cetatenie britanica sau care are resedinta in UK.

Ma voi lega de faptul ca acest formular stipuleaza posibilitatea de a primi permis de munca daca ai fost au-pair pentru un an sau mai mult pana la data de 31 decembrie 2006.Formularul BR1 poate fi descarcat de la urmatoarea adresa:

Nurses in Romania to wear miniskirts
Doctors from a Romanian town want all the nurses to wear miniskirts. Doctors from Iasi have written to officals saying they want a change.They claim the old uniforms are out-of-date. Their demand has been taken into consideration by the National House of Health Insurance. Dr. Iulian Serban, who is the head of the local authority said: “I believe all the women nurses and doctors should wear mini skirts. It would be more elegant.”

Police hunt farting dissident
Police in Poland have launched a nationwide hunt for a man who farted loudly when asked what he thought of the president.

Hubert Hoffman, 45, was charged with “contempt for the office of the head of state” for his actions after he was stopped by police in a routine check at a Warsaw railway station.

He complained that under President Lech Kaczynski and his twin brother Jaroslaw, the country was returning to a Communist style dictatorship.

When told to show more respect for the country’s rulers, he farted loudly and was promptly arrested.

Hoffmann was arrested and released on bail but failed to turn up at a Warsaw court early this week to be tried, and the judge in the case rejected an appeal by defence lawyers to throw the charges out.

A court spokesman said: “Such a case of disrespect is taken very seriously.”

Instead the court ordered the police to start a nationwide hunt for the man, and interpol have been alerted.

Driver fined for ‘having a face like a moron’
A Romanian traffic cop has been demoted after he fined a driver for “having a face like a moron and being a big monkey”.

Marius Vlasceanu pulled over Gheorghe Tosa as he drove through Craiova in Romania, local daily Jurnalul National reported.

But Tosa failed to see the funny side as Vlasceanu fined him £22 and handed him a ticket explaining the reason for the fine was “having a face like a moron and being a big monkey”.

Head of the Romanian police Dan Fatuloiu said Vlasceanu, who claimed he had handed out the fine as a joke, had been demoted for “inappropriate behaviour and defaming the police force”.

He has now been given a desk job in a remote village.

Breast implants save car-crash Bulgarian
40DD airbags
A Bulgarian woman driver escaped relatively unscathed from a head-on pile-up with another vehicle when her 40DD breast implants absorbed most of the impact, Ananova reports.Elena Marinova, 24, of Sofia, pranged her motor in the northern city of Ruse. Both cars were written off and the other driver seriously injured, local paper Standart reported.A police expert explained: “[The implants] worked just like airbags – protecting the victim’s ribs and vital organs from damage.” He did, however, add: “They are not as safe as the real thing because they exploded, which airbags are not supposed to do.”

Yes, it’s official: extraordinarily pneumatic breasts will be henceforth known on El Reg as “Bulgarian airbags”.

Priest ‘had sex in church’

Parishers in a Romanian village are protesting about their new priest – because he allegedly had sex in a church.

Villagers at Rastoaca, in Vrancea county, organised a street demonstration and stopped priest Marian Trusca from entering their church.

Parishioner Dumitru Chirita told Evenimentul Zilei newspaper: “We can never accept this man as our priest.

“We know he was transferred for disciplinary reasons from another village because he had sex on the altar with the school’s secretary.”

The priest denies the allegations but the villagers are adamant and church officials are now reviewing the appointment.

Man peed way out of avalanche

A Slovak man trapped in his car under an avalanche freed himself by drinking 60 bottles of beer and urinating on the snow to melt it. Rescue teams found Richard Kral drunk and staggering along a mountain path four days after his Audi car was buried in the Slovak Tatra mountains. He told them that after the avalanche, he had opened his car window and tried to dig his way out. But as he dug with his hands, he realised the snow would fill his car before he managed to break through.He had 60 half-litre bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem he realised he could urinate on the snow tomelt it, local media reported.He said: “I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it tomelt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. ButI’m glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be usefuland I managed to get out of there.”Parts of Europe have this week been hit by the heaviest snowfalls since 1941, with some places registering more than ten feet of snow in 24 hours.

Demolition job leaves flats untouched, but wrecks 24 nearby homes
An attempt to demolish a block of flats in Romania has left the block untouched but made 24 nearby houses uninhabitable.

The promised ‘controlled’ explosion in the town of Flaminzi also blew out every house window within 500 feet.

The roofs of two nearby buildings collapsed. The block of flats was due to be destroyed to make way for a church.

Reports don’t say whether there were any injuries as a result of the botched demolition.

Bridge over Danube could be named after Chuck Norris
A new bridge in Hungary could be named after the action film actor Chuck Norris after officials left the naming to an internet vote.

Votes for the Chuck Norris Bridge have so far attracted 11 per cent, of the vote, organised by the Ministry for the Economy.

That puts it just ahead of naming the bridge after Hungarian humorist Geza Hofi and three times more popular than naming it after state founder Szent Istvan.

Votes can be cast until September 8 on the website www.m0hid.gov.hu There are more that 500 nominations, as well as names referring to delays, such as ‘It Will Never Happen Bridge’.

A government committee will review the three winning names, as well as other proposals put forward by local governments, cartographers, linguists and others.

The bridge over the Danube is due to open in 2008.

VXer targets Romanian gypsy music
Manele-hating malware
A mass-mailing virus designed to wipe Romanian gypsy music off PCs is spreading rapidly across the east European country. The virus, dubbed Antiman-A, uses a recent story about the kidnapping of three Romanian journalists – abducted by a little-known terrorist Iraqi group approximately a month ago – to trap curious punters.The subject line of the infected message is in Romanian and varies from: “Voteaza azi!” (“Vote today”), “Antivirus”, “Antimanele” (“Against Gypsy music”), to “Cum a murit Papa?” (“How did the Pope die?”). The message body is also in Romanian, and typically tries to trick users into opening an infected attachment by encouraging them to tackle part in a “virtual poll” concerning the withdrawal of Romanian troops from Iraq or by posing as an anti-virus utility. Once executed, the malicious code erases all files which contain the names of well-known gypsy music singers.

The electronic version of traditional gypsy music – dubbed manele – is increasingly popular in Romania but the genre also has its detractors who have praised the virus as a ‘utilitarian’ blessing.

Apart from an apparent abhorrence of Gipsy music, the Auntiman-A author’s musical tastes remain sadly unknown. Perhaps something like Marilyn Manson might ring the bell of your average VXer, but perhaps unpleasant Canadian pomp rock is closer to the mark. After all, everybody in the IT industry loves Rush – at least according to a recent poll.

Back in Romania, meanwhile, anti-virus firm BitDefender CTO, Bogdan Dumitru, said: “The author of this piece of malware is most certainly a Romanian citizen, who has designed it in order to show his deep discontent with the ever increasing popularity of Gypsy music in Romania. Despite the fact that technically it is a very simple code, the virus is spreading at an amazing speed throughout Romania, due to the skilful social engineering tricks employed by its author.”

Vali The Blizzard, a popular Manele singer, told Ananova: “I don’t believe this is a threat for us. On the contrary they are doing us a favour. This way our fans will have to buy the CDs and not take the music from the internet for free.”

Blondes ain’t laughing

Blonde jokes are set to be banned in Hungary after blonde women staged an angry protest outside parliament.

The protestors handed in a petition claiming they were being discriminated against in every walk of life by bad taste blonde jokes.

Spokesperson Zsuzsa Kovacs said: “Blondes face discrimination in the job market, in the workplace when they get a job, and even on the streets.

“People are banned from discriminating against Jews, or blacks, so why not grant blondes the same protection.”

The petition was handed to the equal opportunities minister Kinga Goncz asking her to investigate whether jokes about blondes fall into the same category as religious discrimination.

The petition was just short of the 100 000 needed to force parliament to debate the matter but Goncz’s deputy who spoke to the crowd pledged the government would act to stop any discrimination.

Blondes – real and bleached – protested outside the ministry as the petition was handed in, waving banners with slogans like “We’re blonde, not stupid” and “Love us for our minds”

History

History of Estonia

Ancient

Human settlement in Estonia became possible 11,000–13,000 years ago, when the ice from the last glacial era melted away. The oldest known settlement in Estonia is the Pulli settlement, which was located on the banks of the river Pärnu, near the town of Sindi, in southern Estonia. According to radiocarbon dating, it was settled around 11,000 years ago, at the beginning of the 9th millennium BC.

Evidence has been found of hunting and fishing communities existing around 6500 BC near the town of Kunda in northern Estonia. Bone and stone artifacts similar to those found at Kunda have been discovered elsewhere in Estonia, as well as in Latvia, northern Lithuania and in southern Finland. The Kunda culture belongs to the middle stone age, or mesolithic period.

The end of the Bronze Age and the early Iron Age were marked by great cultural changes. The most significant was the transition to farming, which has remained at the core of Estonian economy and culture. From approximately the 1st to 5th centuries AD, resident farming was widely established, the population grew, and settlement expanded. Cultural influences from the Roman Empire reached Estonia, and this era is therefore also known as the Roman Iron Age.

A more troubled and war-ridden middle Iron Age followed with external dangers coming both from the Baltic tribes, who attacked across the southern land border, and from overseas. Several Scandinavian sagas refer to campaigns against Estonia. Estonian pirates conducted similar raids in the Viking age and sacked and burned the Swedish town of Sigtuna in 1187.[1]

Christianity

By the early 13th century, Estonia was divided into eight large counties — Saaremaa, Läänemaa, Rävala, Harju, Viru, Järva, Sakala, and Ugandi. Annual consultations were held by representatives of several counties and developments took the direction of establishing a state. Estonia until this time retained a pagan religion centred around a deity called Tharapita.

Estonia was Christianised when the German “Livonian Brothers of the Sword” invaded southern Estonia as part of the Northern Crusades in the early 13th century. At the same time, Denmark attempted to take possession of northern Estonia. Estonia was consolidated under the two forces by 1227. Northern Estonia remained a possession of Denmark until 1346. Tallinn (known as Reval at the time) was given its Lübeck Rights in 1248 and joined the Hanseatic League at the end of the 13th century. In 1343, the people of northern Estonia and Saaremaa rebelled against German rule in the St. George’s Night Uprising, which was put down by 1344. There were unsuccessful Russian invasions in 1481 and 1558. After 1524, during the Protestant Reformation, Estonia converted to Lutheranism.

Sweden and Russia

During the Livonian War in 1561, northern Estonia submitted to Swedish control, while southern Estonia briefly came under the control of Poland in the 1580s. In 1625, mainland Estonia came entirely under Swedish rule. Estonia was administratively divided between the provinces of Estonia in the north and Livonia in southern Estonia and northern Latvia, a division which persisted until the early 20th century.

In 1631, the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus forced the nobility to grant the peasantry greater rights, although serfdom was retained. In 1632 a printing press and university were established in the city of Tartu (known as Dorpat at the time). This period is known in Estonian history as “the Good Old Swedish Time.”

Following the Great Northern War, the Swedish empire lost Estonia to Russia (1710 de facto, and 1721 de jure, by the Treaty of Nystad). However, the upper classes and the higher middle class remained primarily Baltic German. The war devastated the population of Estonia, but it recovered quickly. Although the rights of peasants were initially weakened, serfdom was abolished in 1816 in the province of Estonia and in 1818 in Livonia.

Gaining independence

As a result of the abolition of serfdom and the availability of education to the native Estonian-speaking population, an active Estonian nationalist movement started in the 19th century. It began on a cultural level, resulting in the establishment of Estonian language literature, theatre and professional music and the formation of the Estonian national identity. Among the leaders of the movement were Johann Voldemar Jannsen, Jakob Hurt and Carl Robert Jakobson. Significant accomplishments were the publication of the national epic, Kalevipoeg, in 1862, and the organization of the first national song festival in 1869.

Kihnu seashoreIn response to a period of Russification initiated by the Russian empire in the 1890s, Estonian nationalism took on more political tones, with intellectuals first calling for greater autonomy, and later, complete independence from the Russian empire. Following the October Revolution, Estonia declared itself an independent republic on February 24, 1918. After winning the Estonian Liberation War against Soviet Russia (the Treaty of Tartu was signed in February 2, 1920), Estonia maintained its independence for twenty-two years. Initially a parliamentary democracy, the parliament (Riigikogu) was disbanded in 1934, following political unrest caused by the global economic crisis. Subsequently the country was ruled by decree by Konstantin Päts, who became President in 1938, the year parliamentary elections resumed.

Under the USSR

Main article: History of Estonia#Period of Soviet and German occupation

Estonia was occupied by Soviet troops in June 1940, as a consequence of the secret amendment to the August 1939 Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Estonia was formally annexed by the Soviet Union in August 1940 as the Estonian SSR. Many of the country’s political and intellectual leaders were killed or deported to remote areas of the USSR by the Soviet authorities during 1940 to 1941. The repressions also included actions taken against thousands of ordinary people. When the German Operation Barbarossa started against the Soviet Union, thousands of young Estonian men were forcibly drafted into the Red Army. Hundreds of political prisoners were killed whom the retreating Soviets had no time to move. The country was occupied by the Third Reich from 1941 to 1944, when Soviet forces reconquered it after fierce battles in the northeast of the country on the Narva river and on the Tannenberg Line (Sinimäed). In the face of imminent re-occupation by the Red Army, tens of thousands of people chose to either flee the country to Finland or Sweden or retreat together with the Germans. In 1949, in response to slow progress in forming collective farms, as prescribed by the Soviet ideology, tens of thousands of people were forcibly deported in a few days either to labor camps or Siberia where half of them perished; the other half were not allowed to return until the early 1960s (several years after Stalin’s death). That and previous repressions in 1940-1941 sparked a guerilla war against the Soviet authorities in Estonia which was waged into the early 1950s by the so called “forest brothers” (metsavennad) consisting mostly of Estonian veterans of both the German and Finnish armies as well as some civilians.

Western bank of OsmussaarIn addition to the human and material losses suffered due to war, thousands of civilians were killed and tens of thousands of people deported from Estonia by the Soviet authorities until Joseph Stalin’s death in 1953. Soviet rule significantly slowed Estonia’s economic growth, resulting in a wide “wealth gap” in comparison with neighboring democratic countries (e.g., Finland and Sweden).

Militarization was another aspect of the Soviet regime. Large parts of the country and especially the coastal areas were restricted to anyone but the Soviet military. Most of the northern, northwestern and western sea shore and all of the islands (including Saaremaa and Hiiumaa) were declared “border zones”. Estonians not directly living there were restricted from travelling there without a permit and could be punished if they did so. A notable closed military installation was the city of Paldiski which was entirely closed to all public access. The city had a support base for the Soviet Navy’s submarines and several large military bases, including a nuclear submarine training centre complete with a full-scale model of a nuclear submarine with working nuclear reactors. The reactor building passed to Estonian control a year after the Soviet troops left.

Russification was another effect brought about by the Soviet occupation. Hundreds of thousands of Russian-speaking migrants (mostly from the Russian Federation or Ukraine) were relocated to Estonia by the Soviet administration and Communist Party to conduct the aforementioned industrialization and militarization. The immigrants stayed on to form part of the population. By 1980, when part of the Moscow Olympic Games were also held in Tallinn (The Olympic Regatta part), Russification and state-orchestrated immigration had achieved a level at which it started sparking popular protests.

Return to Independence

The tide turned as the Soviet Union ran into economic difficulties as a consequence of the Cold War and began to disintegrate. As the situation evolved, a movement for more Estonian self-governance started. In the initial period of 1987-1989, this was partially for more economic independence, but as the Soviet Union weakened and it became increasingly obvious that nothing short of full independence would do, the country began a course towards self-determination.

In 1989, a landmark demonstration was held for more independence, called The Baltic Way. During the demonstration a human chain of more than two million people was formed, stretching through Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, (both Lithuania and Latvia having had similar fates of occupation and similar aspirations for regaining independence as Estonia).

Estonia regained independence on August 20, 1991, with the Singing Revolution during the Soviet military coup attempt in Russia and the following collapse of the Soviet Union. The first country to diplomatically re-recognize Estonia’s reclaimed independence was Iceland, closely followed by Denmark.

The last Russian troops left on August 31, 1994. Estonia joined NATO on March 29, 2004 and the European Union on May 1, 2004.

Am intrat pe usa la magazinul La Dumitrescu cu un pic de entuziasm mascat ,deoarce eram insotit cu cineva care nu e roman.Ma gandeam la produsele alimentare pe care memoria mea inca le considera speciale.

Nu m am lasat descurajat de vanzatoarea care parea sa isi spuna povestea vieti strigand intr-un mobil de ultima generatie.Sau de faptul ca pe rafturile aranjate cu gust ( trebuie sa mentionez ca m am intrebat daca au folosit un interior designer sau doar au copiat stilul) sunt doar cateva produse raspandite in asa fel incat sa creeze impresia de belsug in oferta.

Incurcat ,ma blockez cand realizez ca era sa cer Parizer in engleza.Trec pe romana ,cu gandul ca oricum nu puteam spune Parizer in engleza.De 2 x ori idiot.Observ sticle de vin in stanga si ma intrept catre ele.Huh,costa mai mult decat in magazinele turcesti din nordul Londrei !.Ma uit din la produsele din jur care pare sa strige la mine : Am venit cu tirul ascuns intre roti! Ma mustru singur pt propriul meu gand rautacios si zambind fortat ,intreb vanzatoarea care parea sa fi trait 200 de ani si ingaim in romana:

-Aveti bere romaneasca?

-Asa a spus,tu! Nici imi venea sa cred! …..mda…acolo in frigider!

Pescuiesc 4 beri din frigider si le pun pe tejghea cu grija sa nu o fac sa isi piarda firul povesti sale.

Presimtind ca are sa dureze un pic pana are sa isi intinda mana sa primeasca bacnota de £ 20.00 lire pe care am intins o las pe tejghea si incep sa studiez magazinul pt a avea ocupatie.Defect profesional.Am facut interiorul la un magazin de indian in South Wimbledon cu ani in urma.Ultima oara cand am intrat acolo,am iesit repede rusinat de greselile in design ,cu o cafea gratis in mana ,oferita de un vanzator care ma recunoscut.

Pe tejghea in fata ,un teanc de ziare cu titlu Roman in UK.Curios ridic unul si il rasfoiesc repede.Ma uit la anunturile romanilor de pe ultima pagina.Teribil.Toata lumea cauta de munca,in unele anunturii simti un pic de disperare.Ma intorc la o pagina care e acoperita de un editoral lung si siropos.E scris de Domnisoara Cristina Irimie,iar fiecare rand citit imi sugereaza ca toti romani sunt rusinati de faptul ca sunt romani.Imi explica ca trebuie sa fim uniti si mandrii de ceea ce suntem iar ea exista pt a salva romani de la o moarte etnica si sociala inevitabila.

Hmmm.Sunt de acord cu Domnisoara ,chiar admir patriotismul extrem de feminin de care da dovada.Ignor faptul ca deja stiu ca Domnisoara Irimia lucreaza ca directoare a unei firme de cleaning.Creez in minte instinctiv un motto pt strategia de marketing a firmei domniei sale : Get a proud romanian to clean your toilets! Pay for 1 romanian ,get 1 free!

Sunt sigur ca Domnisoara Irimia ,plateste angajatelor sale mai mult decat salariul minim pe economie.Cu putin optimism ,salariul minim din Uk si nu din Romania.

Ma mustru pt a 3 oara de cand sunt intrat in magazin.Eu ar trebui sa o inteleg cel mai bine.Am fost des in pozitia Domniei sale,cand fortat de competitie a trebuie sa scad salarile la cei care lucreaza pt mine.Sau cu timp in urma,sa intamplat in asa fel incat a trebuit sa renunt eu la a ma plati singur pt a avea indeajuns bani pt a plati pe ceilanti desi am muncit alaturi de ei.

Oricat ma straduiesc, nu pot sa ignor banuiala secreta ca Domnisoara Irimia nu e ceea ce pare.Sau faptul ca nu pierde niciodata ocazia sa afirma ca ziarul reprezinta Romani din UK,inclusiv pe mine si Parizerul de pe tejgheaua din fata mea.Pt a consolida afirmatia imi explica ca ziarul este luat in serios de catre autoritatile locale si romane.Ciudat ,nu ma simt teribil de norocos sa fiu reprezentat de Domniile sale.

-Optspe-73!

Imi ridic privirea din ziar ma uit dezorientat in jur.

-18.73 spune din nou vanzatoarea ,tinand mobilul intre umar si ureche.

Imping bacnota un centimetru in directia ei si urmaresc unghile ei rosi apucand bacnoata cu stangacie.Imi trece prin minte ca e nevasta propietarului.Iar propietarul e sofer de TIR.Ma uit pe tejghea si imi trece prin minte ca suna cam scump pt o bucata de parizer si 4 beri.Langa bere si parizer vad ciocolata si alte pachetele care aratau a napoliatane

-I want those ,spune persoana care ma insotea.

-She says thats what you need, if you wanna have a romanian dinner.

Ma uit la ziarul din mana mea si stau nehotarat daca sa il cumpar sau nu.

Cum sa iti faci tara mandra de tine
JULY 14, 2018NEWS
Ajuns intr-o tara straina, brusc iti dai seama ca esti din Romania. Lovit de caramida noii tale senzatii ,treci printr-o furtuna emotionala cu vanturi nationalistice.Iti verifici passport-ul ca sa te convingi ca intr-adevar scrie Romania in el, stai 2 secunde in dubiu daca sa il pastrezi sau nu ,si telefonezi acasa, pregatit sa povestesti aventura internationala prin care treci cu atata gratie si dibacie mioritica. Unii dintre noi ,in loc sa auzim : ‘’Imi e dor de tine ‘’ ascultam o voce care spune : ‘’Ai trimis banii ?’’Daca esti rebel, ceri unui prieten sa sune acasa in locul tau ,cu mesajul :

-Doamna, copilul dvs a fost calcat de un autobuz ,in timp ce se indrepta catre Western Union si a primit o amenda pt ca a folosit the bus lane pentru a trece strada.

– Imi pare rau ,dar nu e posibil sa negati amenda, deoarece a fost filmat pe CCTV,atunci cand pe moarte fiind, a incercat sa se miste un 1 metru mai la dreapta astfel incat sa nu se afle pe culoarea rosie a bus lane-ului.Din pacate autobuzul cantarea peste 16 tone.

In felul asta ,castigi timp pentru ca tu sa te poti ocupa de treburi mai importante,ca de exemplu sa imbunatatesti imaginea Romaniei printre bastinasi,sau sa afli de unde poti cumpara tigari ieftine.

Alegerea este a ta. Cei de la Romanian Cultural Centre nu fumeaza si au ales prima optiune.Este admirabil cand cineva alege prima optiune.Banuiesc ca multi dintre noi am alege la fel daca nu am fi vesnic in cautare de munca,chirie sau tigari ieftine. Sau poate daca esti fiul Domnului Ion Ratiu ,e posibil sa simti ca e datoria ta de a continua o traditie chiar si atunci cand nu vorbesti limba romana. A vorbi limba romana nu e la fel de important cu a continua ceva inceput de tatal tau. Trebuie inteles ca limba romana este o limba sentimentala pentru cineva care nu o vorbeste in mod natural si este invatata doar atunci cand este important pentru tine,ca individ. Romanii trebuie sa fie practici ,a fi reprezentat cultural de cineva care nu iti vorbeste limba sau cultura, e mai rau decat a nu fi reprezentat deloc. Insa cat de eficace poate fi un vanzator care nu isi cunoaste propria marfa pe care o vinde. Va observa cineva ca nu stie ce anume vinde sau cumparatorii vor evita cu neincredere shop-ul lui si brand-ul pe care il vinde?

Impotriva instinctului meu de supravetiure ( care a fost cizelat la perfectiune de saracia din Romania) am decis sa ma alatur lor. Am decis sa cumpar tigari Royals rosu ,pe care le poti cumpara cu £ 5.18, insa are 24 de tigari in pachet. Onorabilii TIR-isti romani vor fi nevoiti sa accepte ca au pierdut un client care deja a inceput sa regrete decizia de a cumpara tigari legale,dupa un mic calcul.Iar daca tot vorbim despre calcule, se pare ca cineva nu a prevazut tulburarile sociale din Romania din anul 1990 indeajuns de bine ,atunci cand minerii din Petrosani in lipsa de jocuri de Play Station au hotarat sa distruga aparatura de tipografie aflata la subsolul Teatrului National din Bucuresti,care a fost importata de familia Ratiu pentru a lansa ziarul Cotidianul.

Am imprumutat de la un prieten o dalta,un ciocan si un boltar (BCA) de constructie.( un fel de caramida mare,moale, colorata gri sau alb) Cu sentimentul patriotic ca fac ce trebuie facut,am desfacut o bere si m-am apucat de treaba.Am sa devin noul Brancusi si nimeni nu ma poate opri.Britanicii vor realiza ca romanii sunt nascuti artisti, iar Nicolae Guta va inceta sa fie doar un artist neinteles.

Posibil sa incep sa inteleg de ce familia Ratiu nu a avut incredere sa investeasca in piesajul mioritic din Romania si au investit pentru urmatorii 10 ani doar in tipografii.Din punct de vedere pragmatic,de obicei nu investesti bani intr-o economie bolnava,iar un ziar e foarte folositor daca doresti sa intri pe scena politica romaneasca. In anul 2000 ,Romania a fost onorata cu prima investitie Ratiu in imobiliare iar asta naste curiozitatea. De ce anume anul 2000 si nu in momentul cand investitorii straini mai degraba si-ar fi prins degetele in usa decat sa investeasca in Romania.A asteptat Domnul Nicolae Ratiu,(fiul lui Ion Ratiu) persoana din spatele Centrului Cultural Romanesc din UK ,semnalul agentiilor internationale de rating sau evenimente politice care sa declare Romania o tara stabila din punct de vedere al investitiilor ? Este comportamentul firesc al cuiva care crede in Romania ? Avem dreptul de a cere celor care reprezinta Cultura Romaneasca in UK sa creada in Romania din toate punctele de vedere si, mai important, sa aiba incredere in sarmale, atunci cand Romania are nevoie de prieteni? Cu siguranta un gol a fost umplut,dar asta ii impiedica pe altii sa-i schimbe si posibil sa faca o treaba mai buna.

Rugamintile celor din jur,de a arunca o privire pe bill-ul de electicitate au intrat pe o ureche si s-au innecat in berea Ursus pe care o cumpar de fiecare data cand am ocazia,cu pretextul de a ajuta economia romaneasca. Ajuns in gradina,cu dalta intre dinti si ciocanul in mana,am realizat ca nu stiu ce anume am sa sculptez si ca am nevoie de un frizer ,deoarece nu as vrea sa apar pe prima pagina a ziarului Romani in UK cu o mecla neingrijita. Inca imi doresc threesome in pat, iar publicitatea e importanta. Atata timp cat e discret.Doua femei in pat,nu publicitatea. Domnul Nicolae Ratiu are nevoie de publicitate favorabila mult mai mult decat mine.

Regent House Properties Ltd.cu sediul in Londra,este Centrul Cultural Romanesc in UK atunci cand nu vinde si cumpara propietati. E dubios ca Marea Britanie nu e reprezentata cultural in Romania de catre Tesco.

Intru repede pe pagina de internet a Centrului Cultural Romanesc din UK, si incerc sa ma integrez spiritual in echipa lor.Nu am fost pregatit pentru ce avea sa urmeze.Am scapat berea Ursus din mana ( bere pe care o poti desface cu mana,spre invidia celor din jur)si o injuratura la propria adresa.Ma injura si cei din jur . Ma intorc la boltarul meu si il arunc intr-un colt al gradinii cu dispret.E momentul sa admit ca sunt ‘fier vechi’ educat de vechiul sistem comunist. Ma simt recunoscator ca Centrul Cultural Roman din UK nu fumeaza si invat de la ei cu nerabdare.Britanicii nu doresc cultura, iar Centrul Comercial Romanesc stie asta. Devine clar ca noua modalitate de a promova Romania e prin a le arata britanicilor cum se fac chefuri. Daca ai un vapor la dispozitie face si mai buna impresie. Care britanic ar putea ramane rece la o invitatie gen James Bond la o petrecere pe un vapor in centrul Londrei?!

-Una tuica prune-scuturata si nu amestecata cere nea’Vasile insotit de cativa vecini din satul lui natal,toti purtand ochelari de soare chiar daca e 8 seara. Oh,yeah baby,let me show you how Romanians party!Then you will understand how wrong you are !
Te Art Project presents UK Premiere of The Mother by S. I. Witkiewicz
JULY 14, 2018NEWS
UK Premiere of The Mother is opening at the Camden People’s Theatre on 13th January 2009. It is presented by Te Art Project, a new international theatre company based on collaboration between Polish and British artists in London. The Mother was written by S.I. Witkiewicz, the polish XX century avant-guard painter, playwright, novelist and philosopher.

The production is a rare opportunity to watch the play by the infamous and extravagant polish artist, often compared to Oscar Wilde. The Mother is considered to be one of his greatest dramatic works and examines crucial issues of our time: painful relationships within a dysfunctional family, drug abuse and common delusions caused by main stream ideas. It paints a picture of a modern society slavishly pursuing a life of excitement and debauchery which in turn gives rise to a world of grotesque characters, irrational actions and absurd situations. An experimental form and dream-like quality of the play encourages the exploration of multiple meanings – those expressed literally and those hidden behind the symbolic images.

Te Art Project brings the production of The Mother with the aim of promoting polish theatre tradition and directs their performance to wide British audience as well as the large polish community in London. The event is supported by Polish Cultural Institute in London (http://www.polishculture.org.uk/).

Bulgarians became Christians in the year 865. Their faith is Eastern Orthodox, and they maintain many of the traditional holidays of the Orthodox Church. Their customs include both Christian traditions and those from their original, non-Christian culture. For example, on Christmas Eve Bulgarians burn wood in their fireplaces. This wood is supposed to burn all night long. Bulgarians believe that this symbolizes their desire for a long life. At the same time, Bulgarians celebrate Christmas with a midnight mass at the church.

For New Year’s day children in Bulgaria walk from house to house holding small tree branches decorated with flowers, popcorn, and small bagels. They tap adults on the back or shoulders and recite a small poem wishing for good health, wealth, and success during the new year. In return, the adults give the children candy or other treats.

Another Bulgarian tradition is called Martenitsi. Bulgarians consider the beginning of spring to be March 1. During the whole month of March, Bulgarians wear small red and white tassels on their clothing. These tassels are supposed to bring good health. On the last day of the month, Bulgarians attach the tassels to a tree.

Easter
Decorative Easter eggs are traditionally prepared by women on Holy Thursday or Good Friday. The most beautiful style, pisanki, have elaborate designs achieved by a process similar to batiking: the egg is dipped into each dye used in the pattern, with successive wax applications between dippings channeling the dyes to form the ultimate design. Good Friday and Holy Saturday are traditionally days of prayer and contemplation. On Holy Saturday, a basket of food containing bread, eggs, fresh butter, and a small piece of meat is carried to church, usually by the family’s sons, to be blessed by the priest. The Easter Resurrection Mass is celebrated at sunrise, and is followed by a breakfast (a symbolic breaking of the Lenten fast) at which the blessed food is eaten. The traditional Easter table includes hard-boiled eggs, ham with fresh horseradish, braided breads, a cheese and herb-flavored flat bread, and a tall, hat-shaped cake, or baba. In rural Poland, Easter Monday was traditionally a day for the rowdy ritual of dyngus, when young men could catch young unmarried women and douse them with buckets of water. In some parts of Poland, the women repaid the favor on Tuesday.

Christmas
Christmas Eve, or Wigilia (Vigil Day), is traditionally more sacred than Christmas Day. The house is decorated with evergreen branches; a spruce or pine bough, decorated with apples and nuts, paper chains and cutouts, hangs over the table at which the Christmas Eve supper is eaten. The table for the Christmas Eve dinner is usually covered with a white tablecloth under which straws of hay, reminiscent of the manger, have been placed. The meal begins when the evening star is sighted. After prayer, an oplatek, a round wafer similar to communion wafers, but not consecrated, is broken into pieces and shared among everyone at the table, with each person offering good wishes to everyone else present for the year to come. (It is traditional to invite close friends and family members to share the Wigilia dinner, which is both solemn and joyous.) No meat is served during the Wigilia meal, which consists of thirteen different dishes as a reminder of the Last Supper. These dishes may be simple or elaborate; the point is to have abundant variety, of which everyone can partake. The one required food, aside from the oplatek, is kutia, a dish eaten after the sharing of the wafer. Kutia is a thick farina or barley porridge, sweetened with honey and often containing milk and poppy seeds. It is also served on All Souls’ Day in commemoration of the dead, and sometimes at funeral meals. After the meal, gifts are distributed to the children and the family gathers to sing carols until it is time to leave for church to attend the midnight Mass of the Shepherd (pasterka).

Christmas Day traditionally was observed much more solemnly than Christmas in America. It was a day of complete rest, on which not even meals were to be prepared. The more social celebrations of the Christmas season began the day after Christmas, on St. Stephen’s Day, which was a day for exchanging visits. Poles have a tradition of group caroling, and of constructing elaborate manger scenes which are either displayed in churches or public halls, or carried around by the carolers as they sing. Unlike the singing of carols in the family home, which takes place on Christmas Eve, group caroling begins only on St. Stephen’s Day. In the old days, wandering troupes of carolers might perform throughout the month of January was well, including in their repertoire religious dramas performed as either puppet shows or plays with live actors.

The Romanians’ religion is Orthodox, but, unlike their Orthodox neighbors (Serbs, Bulgarians, Russians), they celebrate Christmas and the other religious festivals and holidays according to the Gregorian calendar (i.e. the holidays coincide with those of the Catholic and Protestant believers). The winter holiday season starts with the day of St. Nicholas (December 6) and ends a month later, on St. John’s day (January 7). People bearing the names of Nicholas, John, or Basil (January 1) throw large parties for their friends. Christmas trees are decorated with garlands, balls, and special candies wrapped in shiny paper. On Christmas Eve groups of children go from house to house and sing carols or sometimes carry a large decorated star of Bethlehem and tell the story of the birth of Christ. Hosts reward them with oranges, cookies, or money. On Christmas Eve, family members, after giving presents to each another, sit down to a rich dinner, which among other courses, must feature sarmale (stuffed cabbage). Often, the dinner ends in caroling. On Christmas Day people go to church and then sit down to another big dinner where the great quantity of food is matched by the abundance of wine and spirits. New Year’s Eve is the time for children to team up again and go about their neighborhood. They make loud noises by cracking whips, ringing sheep bells, and reciting traditional poems for the New Year. This is similar to an old farm custom called plugu(orul (the plow). In this ceremony boys hold rods decked with paper flowers called sorcova and wish every passer-by wealth and happiness in the New Year. The departure of the Old Year and the arrival of the New one is yet another reason for friends and family to get together and party until dawn. Another kind of new year is observed throughout the month of March: women wear m(r(isor (little March) i.e. tassels of red and white thread with little charms attached to them, a custom honoring the onset of the new year in ancient Rome.

Christmas Customs
The Christmas season begins on December 6, Saint Nicholas day. On that day Czechs hold parties at which there are three guests of honor dressed as an angel, a devil, and St. Nicholas. The devil looks for naughty children and rattles his chain. He will give bad children a sooty lump of coal or might even try to drag them off. The Angel smiles upon the good children and helps St. Nicholas to distribute gifts.

A few days before Christmas, families get busy with preparing cookies, food, and presents. Although Americans will usually have a turkey or ham or other festive meat for Christmas, the traditional Czech dish is carp. Carp are rather like large goldfish, and are used as ornamental fish in many fancy gardens here in the US. Czechs who live in the villages raise carp in artificial ponds all year long. When Christmas time comes around, the villagers will drain their ponds and gather the fish in big tubs to take to the city for sale. On the street corners in big cities, fish sellers will stand with a butcher block and scales to weigh and sell the fish. If you want, they will clean the fish right there on the street and wrap it up. However, many Czechs want their carp to be as fresh as possible, so they bring a bucket of water to take their fish home in. Once at home, they will fill up the bathtub and let the fish swim around in it until they are ready to cook it. You might have to wait until the carp is roasting in the oven before you can take your bath on Christmas Eve!

After the carp is eaten, the children are sent off to their room for a while, where their mother might read them a story, because the father has an important job to do. He will put up the Christmas tree and decorate it all at once, put the presents in piles (one for each child) under the tree and light candles and sparklers on it. Czechs like to hang chocolates on their trees, and other ornaments are often made of common domestic materials such as straw, cloth, or baked dough. When the tree is all ready, the father rings a bell and the children come running to see the tree brightly shining. They open their presents and then the family stands around the tree singing Christmas carols. Because St. Nicholas already brought them gifts a couple of weeks earlier, the children are told that these presents are from the baby Jesus. People also go caroling from one house to another, and like our trick-or-treaters, they will receive various goodies, such as nuts, fruit, and chocolates.

The holiday season closes with a New Year’s party, called Silvestr in honor of St. Sylvester, whose name comes on that day. This party is very similar to ours, with feasting , drinking and waiting to ring in the new year at midnight.

Easter
The other big holiday that is observed is Easter. Weeks before the actual holiday there is a masquerade parade in which people put on all kinds of funny costumes and walk through the streets. This is similar to, though not as extravagant as, the Mardi Gras celebrated in New Orleans. Czechs enjoy using a variety of noisemakers on this holiday, and a favorite one is a wooden ratchet. These come in many sizes, and most of them work by waving them in the air, which causes them to spin with a loud clatter. In some villages they have ratchets so big that they are like wheelbarrows, and you have to work them by pushing them down the street, since no one could wave them.

When it gets closer to the actual holiday, Czechs also color eggs like we do, although it is still popular to use natural dyes of one sort or another. The easiest one to use is old onion skins — you just collect all your onion skins for a few weeks and then boil the eggs along with the onion skins, and this gives them a lovely rich yellow-orange color. Sometimes people will paint designs of starbursts or flowers on the eggs in wax to create a pretty pattern. This leads to another round of trick-or-treating, this time for Easter eggs.

Boys take branches from trees or bushes (willows work best) and braid them and decorate them with ribbons, making switches about 2 feet long called pomlazky. They carry these about and occasionally use them to spank young girls (just in fun, of course).

A traditional Easter meal will include lamb or a cake made in the shape of a lamb (from dough like the one used for the Czech Christmas bread).

Other times of year
On every day of the year there is at least one saint who is commemorated, and these days are holidays for anyone who has that name. They are called namesdays and are celebrated rather like birthdays. Czech calendars have these names printed right on them, so you will know when to congratulate your friends and bring them presents. It’s a lot easier than remembering birthdays!

If you don’t live in the city, every once in a while someone in your neighborhood will slaughter a pig. Maybe this doesn’t sound very nice, but it is always a big occasion. It can happen at any time of year, but is more common in the summer. This is a festive ritual that involves making every part of the pig into some useful (usually edible) product, and there are some special pork delicacies that are served up only at this time. You can think of it as a distant relative of our local pig pickin’.

Hollywood is like McDonald’s, cheap and fast. I not longer trust them to cater for my spiritual needs. I am older and wiser and I hate it when noisy bombs stops me from falling asleep when I am watching a new Rambo saving the world. Give the hero MRSA or tell him to play dead! Or give me a gun so that I can put him out of his misery and let the world fall asleep.

There has been a Hollywood strike recently and unfortunately they will reach a compromise in order to dump more rubbish on the worlds cinemas. There is no escape from that, is there? No wonder why young people want to become an actress, a footballer or a celebrity instead of a doctor or an engineer. I remember when after 9/11 , tough-guy actors such as Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger were refusing to fly with British Airways. Let alone go to Iraq and save …something.

Talking about Art, today I clicked again my royal mouse on Cannes Film Festival link. The winner is 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, a low budged film from Romania. I had to check what McDonald’s thinks of it.

Quote : Oscar Shuns 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days
Oscar foreign film committee head Mark Johnson’s worst fear has been confirmed. The nine films advancing to the next round of voting in the Foreign Language Film category for the 80th Academy Awards do not include Cristian Mungiu’s lauded Romanian abortion drama 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days, which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes and the European Film Award, as well as landing on many ten best lists.

Something is terribly wrong. The definition of arts for Europeans and Americans clearly are not identical. Who should we trust when buying an over priced cinema ticket? Hollywood is the historical center of movie studios and movie stars, reflecting what film lovers want to see. They have produced few good films.

Europe.Old Europe is the birthplace of Western culture and everything can be traced back to Europe. I am proud that Europe doesn’t do McDonald’s. As for myself, my winner is the girl from the picture.

Bulgaria in the EU = a cup of coffee

There have been a number of statements lately by eurosceptic groups claiming that the EU membership costs European citizens too much. They consider that the costs have grown because of the accession of Bulgaria and Romania and there could be a better use of this money.

I am one who claims that the accession of Bulgaria and of Romania is a very good deal for the current 25 members. The EU will enlarge with a nice country such as mine for as little as two euro per capita of the present member states per year. It’s the price of one cup of coffee served on a terrace in Berlin or in a churreria in Madrid. Over one whole year, it’s nothing. I wish Europe had paid more, but that’s it.

I recently wrote an article in Standart, the newspaper where I work, where I explained how I had reached these calculations. The funds allocated for Bulgaria in the EU budget for 2007-1013 are 11.113 billion euro. This makes 1.58 billion euro a year. The whole budget of the EU for the same period is 862.4 billion euro, meaning that the cost of Bulgaria’s accession in this budget is 1.28 per cent. The population of the 25 present members is 460 million people. Therefore per capita the accession of Bulgaria costs 3.43 euro a year. But that’s not the net price, since Bulgaria also pays its contribution to the budget. So the net price is indeed very close to two euro, keep the change, if any.

But participation in the EU is not only about paying. As members of the EU we have the right to decide together. That is, to participate in the decision-making, so we are allotted a number of votes for qualified majority vote. Also a number of members in the European Parliament and in other institutions. How do they evaluate our weight? The GDP of Bulgaria calculated taking in account the purchasing power is about 50 billion euro, if we can believe the CIA fact book. I personally like the CIA figures because they are higher than the official number of about 20 billion euro, where purchasing power is not taken into account. Again the CIA gives a 200 billion euro estimation for the GDP of Austria. Bulgaria and Austria, having roughly the same population, are given in the EU the same number of votes and the same number of MPs. The Alpine country is obviously richer, but we are equal. So we too have a good deal, after all.

School Curriculum

K-12 si Educatia Primara in England, Wales si Northern Ireland

Prin lege, toti copii intre varsta de 5 ani si 16 ani ,trebuie sa mearga la scoala pentru educatie. Marea Britanie a introdus National Curriculum in 1992 si toti scolarii sunt obligatii sa urmeze studiile pana la varsta de 16 ani. Scolile private sau indepedente nu sunt obligate prin lege de a urma sistemul public.

National Curriculum este impartit in 4 stagii:’

Stagiul 1 : pana la varsta de 7 ani ( Ani 1 si 2)
Stagiul 2: de la 7 ani pana la varsta de 11 ani (Ani 3, 4, 5 si 6)
Stagiul 3: de la 11 ani pana la varsta de 14 ani(Ani 7, 8 si 9)
Stagiul 4: de la 14 ani pana la varsta de 16 ani(Ani 10 si 11 – studiere pt studii academice si pt diplome vocationale sau profesioniste )
Cele mai importante subiecte pt National Curriculum sunt : Limba engleza, matematica si stinte. Subiecte de baza sunt design si technologie, technologia de informatie si comunicatii, istorie si geografie, limbi straine moderne,muzica, arta si design, educatie fizica, educatie religioasa sau cetateneasca.

Irlanda de Nord are un sistem de invatamant similar ,dar scolile din Irlanda au voie sa adauge elemente noi la National Curriculum, in functie de nevoile scolarilor si situatiei existente. Curriculumul de asemenea poate include limba irlandeza in Irlanda sau Welsh in zonele respective.

Dupa 5 ani de educatie secundara, studentii-scolarii trec prin examene cu subiecte la nivelul de General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE). GCSE este un examen cu un singur subiect, examinat de un consiliu scolar indepedent.Studentii in mod normal aleg pana la 10 subiecte ( nu este limita minima sau maxima – in schimb cat mai multe subiecte face impresie si ajuta)

Dupa luarea examenului GCSE, studentii poate renunta la a continua educatia. In mod firesc se alege a continua studiile prin a se inscrie la Colleges sau la un nivel mai avansat,examene A-Level ( Advanced Level) care sunt necesare pt inregistrare intr-o universitate din UK.

National Curriculm pt varstele 14-19 ani este in contiunua schimbare din 2004. Pt a afla mai multe viziteaza Departamentul Pentru Educatie si Profesie (in limba engleza)14 – 19 Gateway .

Romani in Spania

Din seria “kids, brush your teeth and turn off the tv”, ce-mi mai vazura ochii zilele astea pe posturile tv de mare angajament care este. 😀 In ziua de Craciun, nshpe reportaje despre, vai, marea drama a romanilor plecati de la Cuca Macaii (apropo, cica exista localitatea asta) sa culeaga capsuni/dea cu sapa/faca pe menajerele in Spania. Ete si d-aia mi-a stat mie sarmaua in gat, ca am vazut-o pe tzatza Floarea cum plangea cu lacrimi de crocodil de mila copchilasilor capsunari, care n-au putut sa se intoarca in tzara din varii motive (zgarcenia fiind, probabil, cel mai important. Lasa, domne, ce atatea plimbari, stam acilisha sa facem bani de Audi). Reporterita era vizibil marcata, de parca ar fi murit cineva si ne zicea unde o sa-l ingroape. Ca of, si-au lasat si copiii in urma, ah, iote la ei ce copilasi tristi, waa waaa ne e dor de mami si tati. In partea ailalta, la exilatii de care trebuia sa ni se rupa sufletu’, reactii de genu’ Nicaieri nu-i Craciunu’ ca acasa..uof..ce soarta tragica pe capu’ nostru.

Bai producatorii de stiri ai lu’ peste, pe cine credeti voi c-ati impresionat cu asemenea materiale? Pe mine si p-ai mei nu numai ca ne-a durut fix in paishpe, da’ chiar ne-a ingretosat pseudodrama asta si-am schimbat repede postu’ (din pacate, a fost subiect comun in mai multe jurnale de pe posturi diferite :|). Sa ma explic. Majoritatea celor plecati in Spania sunt tzarani (nu neaparat prin mediul de provenienta, da’ prin incultura si prostie crasa…asta fiind exemplul clasic). Ei sunt aia care stau la cozi interminabile, dorm nu stiu cate nopti in fata ambasadei cand se fac inscrierile pentru plecari, se injosesc in ultimu’ hal ca sa apuce o bucatzica din raiu’ spaniol, unde toate mustele fac, evident, miere. Majoritatea au 8 clase sau, in cel mai bun caz, liceul. Manelisti convinsi si scuipatori de seminte. Forta de munca ieftina, care accepta sa faca tot felu’ de activitati mai mult sau mai putin injositoare, sa traiasca in alta tara la limita subzistentei si apoi, cu banii stransi din zgarcenia asta, sa se dea rotunzi in catunul de origine.

Dac-ar fi numa’ astea, sa zicem ca n-as avea nimic cu ei. Fiecare se descurca in limita intelectului, daca de atat sunt capabili ca sa faca un ban, bravo lor, macar nu fura. Da’ evident ca romanu’ capsunar este o specie aparte. O fi el sarac, da’ mai e si carcotas si scandalagiu. Prin vara, mi-aduc aminte de alte reportaje cu distinsii muncitori care se plangeau, domne, de tratamentul la care sunt supusi. Ca ii muncesc aia toata ziua, ca au o norma de indeplinit, ca dorm in baraci, ca alea alea. Ah da, la valoarea voastra, valoarea voastra, cum de isi permit sa va trateze in asemenea hal? Auzi tu..ii pun la munca! Pff..pai si io m-as revolta in asemenea conditii..doar am plecat din tzara sa fiu programator la Microsoft. Si pe langa faptu’ ca-s cartitori, romanasii nostri nici nu reusesc sa se integreze in societatea adoptiva..ca deh, invidie, prostie, ce domne, astia se cred mai buni ca noi, ia ca-i scuipam noi, le zicem de ma-sa si le furam si portofelu, sa se invete minte. Si ne mai miram si suntem jigniti noi, ca popor (s-a simtit cineva jignit atunci? ca eu una nu) cand apar cantecele scrise de spanioli xenofobi.

Romanii din Spania au portal. Romanii din Spania au si partid. Romanii din Spania au cu ce. Ce pana lor! Romanii din Spania sunt subiect de reportaj cel putin o data pe saptamana. I-a obligat cineva sa plece? I-a obligat cineva sa ramana acolo nshpe ani sau sa nu vina acasa de Craciun?

Draga capsunarule, acestea fiind zise, taci si-nghite. Multumesc.

European Union-50 years

The European Union just turned 50 years old this year. And like most old things ,the EU makes no exception from being boring. For an organization that had a modest beginning and it is used by politicians as a scapegoat , is doing well. For those wishing that EU will fade away ,you are wasting your time and you should rather take the free beer EU gives away every 50 years. There is always a next time and yours will be in 2057. The EU has provided peace and prosperity and that is something new for Europe. Of course that means nothing for somebody who is playing war on its computer games or wants to keep its job free from competition ,so that he or she can be a lazy worker. It is quite easy to understand why people want to protect their easy life style, even if the next generation will have to emigrate to India or China in search for jobs, as the big companies and corporations have the nasty habit of offering employment in locations where people work hard and are paid according to a mysterious competitive global wage system.

France. There is no secret that most nationalistic political parties are build to exploit these fears.There is no Joan D’Arc but instead you get Le Pen in France who looks like a paedophile and his daughter might not be his . The riots in Paris shows that something is wrong, perhaps the French should start giving those people jobs or free porn to keep them busy.

In UK , the Labour Party is switching from Left to Right like a skier on a salmon run and by doing this, nationalistic parties are left with dubious voters who had no choice but to vote for Scooch and confused Tory leaders wants to make love to the huddies.The EU has been good for UK even when Mrs. British is complaining about the her new east-European au-pair ,for not being able to fix her broken car. The British can already start blaming the vote system in Eurovision. That song really should be made illegal and while at it ,buying peerages too.

Hungary -a land locked country run by sailors. After Europe’s recent problems in securing a stable gas supply caused by Russia, the Hungarians behaved with the grace of a cheating wife by making a deal with the Russians behind Europe’s back. They were funnier when they were naming bridges after Chuck Noriss or lying their way out of dodgy economy. With a government like that in power they don’t need more enemies.

Poland , the country who wanted to make Jesus Christ the King of Poland recently , is no surprise that the government is trying to ban gay people and piss off the Germans. If they want the world to take them seriously they should elect a guy that looks and speaks like a comedian as a president and his twin brother as a prime minister. One big happy family government. If you are polish wave when you get back to stone age era.

Romania- the land of magic. No! they don’t make Viagra over there.Romanians choose their leaders among the idiots like most nations do. (apart from USA where baseball and being an idiot is a national sport) The knowledge that somebody who talks and looks like them is running the show, it makes them feel better and more equal . Recently the Romanian Prime Minister was minding his own business on a live TV show ,telling everyone who was watching that the President is a liar ,when he was interrupted by a caller who phoned in to say that the Prime Minister is The liar. The PM promptly replied : I had enough of you and I don’t want to talk to you anymore. The caller was the President itself and I have a feeling they don’t like each other. Power to the people, even thou they are killing us.

New poems

 

Lotus Bud

The price of  silence :

A crystal polished by words…

I know you’re not sleeping

Cause we’re both goblins

I know you’re not sleeping…

Two freesias – my eyes

Your lips looking for my breasts…

You will forgive me, eventually

Cause I’ve paid

The price of silence….

 

I am the lotus bud
That you opened
On the very first day of monsoon.
I am the lotus flower
That moulds your feeling
and I am about to be
Unwillingly
Your superconscience.

AUTUMN GOBLINS

Gloomy, dampened nights,

Ushers of my sorrow,

Dim, malignant lights

Mourn for never morrow…

Black ravens hastily bloomed

Onto my heart’s estate,

Desires softly tombed ,

Premise deep desolate.

Autumn – a winged odour,

Caresses my dreams dallied,

Recurrent yellow murder,

It’s me, or autumn pallid ?

The Queen of Hearts I draw

Decisions in love valley,

Losing two Knaves I saw,

The third, fantastically

Embodies autumn’s dare:

Mere wealth or dying leaves ?

Not to abide I swear

Dream knaves – my soul’s goblins….

When a newspaper is not a newspaper

I pushed the door and stepped inside the Romanian shop called La Dumitrescu in London, trying to hide my enthusiasm as I was accompanied by a non-romanian. It will take far more than a lady behind the till, shouting her life story into a mobile of the latest generation to put me off. Or the fact that there are not many products to choose from. However I did appreciated the interior design of the shop. To make a shop look like it has plenty on offer for its customers is a challenge and I know that as I failed, last time I tried to do so for a shop in South Wimbledon.

Confused, I stop myself right on time before having a go at asking for Romanian sausage in English. The lady clearly speaks Romanian and there is no English name for ‘Parizer’, a Romanian sausage..

On the shelves, to my left, bottles of wines but I change my mind when I remember that I can get the same wine cheaper in the Turkish shops from north London. Looking again at the products on display I get the impressions that most of the stuff on sale came hidden under a lorry. I realise that I am just being nasty and walk towards the lady on the phone;

‘Do you have Romanian beer’ I manage to ask

‘That’s what he said! Yeah, I know…err there in the fridge’

I took four beers out of the fridge; with as little noise it was possible, making sure that the lady on the phone doesn’t lose the plot of her life.

Guessing that it will take a while before she will take the £ 20.00 note , I pick up a copy of’ Romani in UK’ ( Romanians in UK)  newspaper in front of me and start reading a cheesy  editorial by Miss Cristina Irimie, the owner of the newspaper.

Every sentence of the editorial tells me that ‘we’ are ashamed of being Romanians and that we should be united in a strong community and she is ‘the one’ who will save the Romanians from an imminent social and ethnic death. Well, one has no choice but to admire the noble intentions of Cristina Irimie, yet I just can’t ignore a sneaky feeling that something is not right about her.

I know she has her own cleaning business. I build quickly a motto for her marketing strategy: Get a proud romanian to clean your toilets! Pay for 1 Romanian, get 1 free!

I am sure that Miss Irimia pays her employees the minimum wage. Hopefully, the minimum wage in UK and not the minimum wage in Romania that is. I am nasty again and I know that but I just can’t get over the fact that she keeps insinuating that her newspaper represents the Romanians in uk ,and that includes me and the sausage in front of me.

On her website, states that the project Romani in UK it has been set up as a philanthropic organisation in order to help those in need. Very honourable indeed, but I still don’t understand why she runs two more business beside the cleaning agency. The newspaper offers lots of opportunities but not for its readers. The opportunities are for the dubios companies advertised. One consultancy agency offers to help newly arrived and penniless  romanians,to open a bank account in exchange for a £ 200.00 fee. The offer is hard to ignore as it plastered all over the newspaper and it makes a point by saying that you don’t need proof of address. The rest of adverts are shared between some pubs, restaurants, traveling to Romania by bus and connected to each other like a magic circle. Suddenly I don’t feel lucky being represented by Romanians in UK.

‘£ 18.73 ‘says the blonde lady, holding her mobile between her shoulder and chin with dexterity.

Confused, I push the £ 20.00 note one more inch towards her. I can see her red nails picking up the note in a way that makes me think that she has no experience in dealing with money. The funny thought that she is married to a lorry driver goes thru my mind. And the lorry driver owns the shop. Wait a second, £ 19.00 sounds a bit expensive for four beers and a sausage. I am looking at what is on the till in front of me and I can see wafers and chocolate.

-I want those, says the person next to me.
-She says that’s what you need, if you want to have a romanian dinner.I am looking at the newspaper in my hand and I take a second to decide if I buy it or not. It says a £ 1.00 on it. But I am sure there is no refund policy. I can afford £ 1.00, but something inside stop’s me and I put the newspaper back on the till.My brain is still searching for a marketing motto: ‘ A proud cleaner is a better cleaner?!’  Nahh it’s not good enough and I don’t mean just the Romanian dinner.

Take Away

‘Hello’

‘Helloo’

‘Can I order chicken curry ,please. I ‘ll come and collect it myself’.

‘In the same container?’

‘Yes ,please.’

‘With no onion?’

‘Errr yeah ,no onion.’

‘Ok, it will be ready for collection in few minutes.’

My girlfriend hates onion. I have been using the same take away for more than a year now. Every time we had chinese take away,she made sure there was no onion in it.As the romanian cuisine is based on onion, I did miss a bit of onion in my food.So I brushed it off  the same way I did with bread ,years ago.We split up few months ago.the shop assistants ( a young guy about 24 yo and a girl about the same age,both chinese) got the know me quite well,especially as my ex was very talkative . They would chat us up every time ,asking when are we going to get married. I would smile politely and watch my g/f telling them that we are bound to get married very soon.I even started it to believe it myself. I ‘ve met her parents,they loved me so we had green light.Well ,few months ago we broke up.The shop assistants don’t know that.I do like onion .Yet I just can’t bring me myself to tell them that.I don’t wanna spoil what they think about me.A nice young guy ,about to get married to a nice young girl,who orders lately just one portion of chicken curry.For as long they will trouble themself to pick all the onion out ,I will keep saying: Errr, yeah….no onion please.

 

Hello world !

 

Polish culture over the world
The Polish Film Festival celebrates its fifth anniversary this year. We are approaching the age, in which one starts realising that the world is much bigger than previously assumed. So, this year we have decided to investigate this outside world.In addition to our regular venues such as the Riverside StudiosHammersmith and Curzon Mayfair, we will for the first time screen Polish films at the Prince Charles Cinema in the West End, Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley and Rio Cinema in Dalston. Once the Polish Film Festival finishes in London, the Polish films will then travel to Edinburgh, where they will be screened at the New Europe Film Festival. At the same time an exhibition of Polish Film Posters will be displayed at the Belfast Film Festival.

This year we will also go international, as the Polish film industry becomes more global, and we will close the festival with the UK-Hungary production Copying Beethoven directed by Agnieszka Holland. We are delighted that there is a growing appetite for Polish films across the U.K., and this reflects the quality of films coming out of Poland.

Also, starting in April the British distributor Dog Woof Pictures is bringing Polish productions to local cinemas throughout England, Scotland and Ireland, in collaboration with the Polish Cultural Institute and the Polish Film Institute. So wherever you are based in the UK and Ireland, soon you will be able to check out what is new in Polish cinema. We look forward to seeing you there.

Fie painea cat de rea, tot mai bine-n tara ta?!

 

 

De lozinci suntem toti satui. E painea amara, dar o mananci la tine acasa. Sincera sa fiu, nu sunt de acord cu asta. Desi nici cu opusul nu ma impac.

 

Am avut constiinta faptului ca sunt romanca, si mandra de lucrul acesta, cand am plecat prima data peste hotare. Durata deplasarii: o saptamana. Destinatia: Turcia. Nu, nu ca sa ingros randurile romancelor care castigau o paine alba, contribuind la « repararea » si « intretinerea » trotuarelor Istanbulului. Fara modestie pot sa spun ca sunt una dintre romancele care incearca sa spele un pic obrazul Romaniei, patat (iremediabil?) de prostituate, hoti de buzunare si alte specimene plecate sa castige un ban « cinstit » peste hotare..

 

O saptamana, in interes de serviciu. Locuri noi, frumoase, soare, companie placuta. Totul minunat. Totusi, in doar o saptamana, a aparut pentru prima data dorul. Dorul de Romania. La intoarcere, la granita, aruncam din tren bunataturi cainilor care misunau prin gara. La chemarea mea dragastoasa « Cutu cutu », ei dadeau din coada, asteptand cuminti randul la festin. O schimbare de la cateii turcesti ce nu reactionau cand ii strigam, niste caini mari, bine hraniti, care dormeau toata ziua la umbra palmierilor, neinteresati de nimic si de nimeni. Atunci mi-am spus, ei da, aici vreau sa traiesc, pana si cainii simt romaneste  …

 

Dupa un timp au urmat alte deplasari in interes de serviciu, in alte tari. Cu cat vedeam si alte locuri, cu atat incepeam sa compar mai mult… Vedeam locuri frumoase, poate nu la fel de frumoase ca in Romania, poate frumoase dar in alt fel, sau doar frumoase pentru ca erau evidentiate cum trebuia. « Muntii nostrii aur poarta, noi cersim din poarta-n poarta », spunea Goga…dar nu vreau sa vorbesc de cum isi vand romanii marfa…nici de cum o ambaleaza…

 

Daca esti tanar, ai curaj sa iei lumea in piept. Ai curaj sa uiti ca esti absolvent de Litere, sau Drept, si preferi  sa pleci. Pentru ca salariul nu-ti ajunge decat pentru tigari si cateva iesiri cu prietenii. Pentru ca nu poti sta cu chirie, fara sa fie nevoie sa apelezi la ajutorul parintilor. Asa ca ai decis sa pleci. Pur si simplu. Iti faci bagajele, directia : strainatate. Au-pair, daca nu ai 27 de ani impliniti, sau, daca esti destul de norocos, in constructii. Au-pair, 350 lire/luna. Iti exersezi engleza, pe care tu oricum o stii la perfectie. In constructii ? uiti de coatele tocite pe bancile facultatii, pentru ca acum te dor toate madularele cand incepi munca de jos. 70-80 lire/zi, 5 zile/saptamana, 4 saptamani….un calcul estimativ ar conduce la un salariu de 1200-1600 lire/luna. Sa te mai gandesti ca painea e amara aici, pentru ca nimic din ce auzi nu este sincer, pentru ca toti zambesc fals ? Nu iti pasa, te gandesti la bucuria alor tai cand te duci cu bani acasa… bani pe care ii poti economisi alegand doar sa traiesti in conditii inimaginabile in momentul in care ai hotarat sa iei drumul strainatatii.

 

Eu am fost destul de matura sa nu plec ca au-pair doar de dragul faptului de a ajunge in Anglia. Am preferat sa stau la mine in tara. Sa muncesc pe un salariu de 2 lei, luat din 3 in 3 luni, dar sa imi fac meseria. Meserie pe care o iubeam, dar pe care incepusem sa o urasc tot din cauza oamenilor. Pana la Dumnezeu te mananca sfintii, iar la noi sfinti sunt foarte multi. Nu conteaza ca esti absolvent de facultate iar ei doar purtatori de hartii dintr-un loc in altul, ciocolata trebuie sa nu lipseasca din geanta. Cadoul era proportional cu valoarea hartiei, si, evident, cu rapiditatea cu care doreai ca sarcina sa fie indeplinita. Kentul sau chiar Whisky-u se pretau in astfel de situatii.

 

Da… incepusem sa visez la cum ar fi sa plec, cum ar fi sa imi fac in continuare meseria, dar la alte standarde, si in cu totul alt mediu. Sa nu mai fie nevoie sa car ciocolata in geanta decat pentru cazul de forta majora cand mi-ar fi fost pofta de o bucata.

 

Am fost destul de norocoasa sa mi se ofere o sansa, iar eu nu am ratat ocazia de a o insfaca cu ambele maini. Visul meu s-a materializat sub forma unei oferte in Anglia. Un an, in conditii de lucru deosebite, cu oameni care stiau sa aprecieze cei 5 ani de facultate. Minunat, dar… a aparut dorul insuportabil. Dorul de limba romana, dor ce m-a cuprins la cateva zile de vorbit doar limba engleza. Gandul ca un an va trebui sa stau departe de tot ce fusese viata mea pana in momentul acela, ma ucidea. Dar totul trece…zilele, lunile se scurgeau, iar cartelele telefonice 3 la 10£ cu care sunam acasa, imi mai alinau dorul.

 

Dupa ce primele luni, cele de acomodare, au trecut, am inceput sa vad totul cu alti ochi. Nu, nu trebuia sa spui nici macar multumesc celor care iti purtau hartiile dintr-o parte in alta, raspunsul lor era invariabil « Asta e meseria mea ». Un an cu bune si rele, un an in care mi-am dorit de multe ori sa pot lasa totul si sa plec acasa. Sa nu-mi mai pese de bani, de conditii performante de lucru, ci doar de o gluma facuta dimineata cu colegii in timp ce ne beam cafeaua, de zambetul sincer sau de nepolitetea la fel de sincera ale romanilor.

 

Cu bune si rele, anul s-a terminat. Momentul sa plec acasa. Acasa ? Un an, Anglia fusese casa mea. Incepusem sa iubesc pauzele de cafea la ora fixa, ma obisnuisem sa lucrez in conditii excelente, incepusem chiar sa ma obisnuiesc cu zambetul, mai mult sau mai putin fals, al colegilor. Mi-era dor de tot ce era romanesc, dar incepuse sa-mi placa standardul vietii englezesti. Dar… trebuia sa plec. Nu, multumesc, munca de au-pair nu era pentru mine. Nu, multumesc, nici cleaning etc.

 

Unde altundeva sa ma intorc decat …de unde am plecat ?!

 

Un an e timp lung. Am uitat complet de obiceiul cu ciocolata…iar la « multumesc »-ul meu nu mi se mai raspundea cu invariabilul « Asta e meseria mea » ci cu « Ei, de vorbe suntem satui »… A fost frumos cand mi-am revazut colegii, cand am revazut locul din care plecasem si la care ma intorsesem, ca fiul ratacitor.

 

O luna, atat a durat pana am inceput sa imi doresc din nou sa plec. O luna in care mi-era dor de civilizatie, de conditii de lucru bla-bla-bla… Si…oferta a venit din nou. De data asta nu am mai plecat cu sufletul indoit . Nu au mai fost nici lacrimi in aeroport, pentru ca nu mai plecam in necunoscut, ci la loc cu verdeata, iarba in Anglia e mai verde decat in Romania, stiu… intotdeauna iarba e mai verde de partea cealalta a gardului.

 

Au trecut 3 ani. Sunt tot aici. Trei ani in care spun tuturor ca sunt romanca, dar, atunci cand sunt cu prieteni romani si englezi, vorbesc engleza. Stiu…am avut un vis, si un dram de noroc sa ajung aici. Nu, nu am uitat de unde am plecat. Nu am uitat de dorul meu de la prima iesire din tara. Nu am uitat cateii care stiau romaneste. Nu am uitat ca am ajuns aici doar pentru ca am absolvit o facultate romaneasca . Nu am uitat nimic din ce este romanesc. Dar… am venit la mai bine. Am dat o paine amara pe una dulce, chiar daca e condimentata uneori cu singuratate. Uneori cutitul cu care tai painea strainatatii e taios ca dorul de a-mi suna prietenii si a-i vedea in urmatoarea jumatate de ora. Nu stiu daca ma voi mai intoarce. Stiu insa sigur ca nu voi ramane aici ca sa fiu au-pair, cleaner sau vanzator la Sainsburys. Daca painea e rea aici, prefer sa o mananc in tara mea.

Tradition in Eastern Europe

Each country has its own unique traditions that continue to be observed today. These customs are often very old, originating thousands of years ago when nomads and farmers, the Slavic peoples or the romans, began to populate that part of the world. The traditions that are practiced today combine ancient pagan rituals relating to the seasons and agricultural cycles with the holidays of Christianity (often Eastern Orthodoxy). Below are descriptions of the cultural practices in a few Eastern European countries.You may find that these descriptions often resemble each other, and that several countries have similar traditions.

Bulgaria

Folk Customs and Holidays

Bulgarians became Christians in the year 865. Their faith is Eastern Orthodox, and they maintain many of the traditional holidays of the Orthodox Church. Their customs include both Christian traditions and those from their original, non-Christian culture. For example, on Christmas Eve Bulgarians burn wood in their fireplaces. This wood is supposed to burn all night long. Bulgarians believe that this symbolizes their desire for a long life. At the same time, Bulgarians celebrate Christmas with a midnight mass at the church.

For New Year’s day children in Bulgaria walk from house to house holding small tree branches decorated with flowers, popcorn, and small bagels. They tap adults on the back or shoulders and recite a small poem wishing for good health, wealth, and success during the new year. In return, the adults give the children candy or other treats.

Another Bulgarian tradition is called Martenitsi. Bulgarians consider the beginning of spring to be March 1. During the whole month of March, Bulgarians wear small red and white tassels on their clothing. These tassels are supposed to bring good health. On the last day of the month, Bulgarians attach the tassels to a tree.

Poland

Easter

Decorative Easter eggs are traditionally prepared by women on Holy Thursday or Good Friday. The most beautiful style, pisanki, have elaborate designs achieved by a process similar to batiking: the egg is dipped into each dye used in the pattern, with successive wax applications between dippings channeling the dyes to form the ultimate design. Good Friday and Holy Saturday are traditionally days of prayer and contemplation. On Holy Saturday, a basket of food containing bread, eggs, fresh butter, and a small piece of meat is carried to church, usually by the family’s sons, to be blessed by the priest. The Easter Resurrection Mass is celebrated at sunrise, and is followed by a breakfast (a symbolic breaking of the Lenten fast) at which the blessed food is eaten. The traditional Easter table includes hard-boiled eggs, ham with fresh horseradish, braided breads, a cheese and herb-flavored flat bread, and a tall, hat-shaped cake, or baba. In rural Poland, Easter Monday was traditionally a day for the rowdy ritual of dyngus, when young men could catch young unmarried women and douse them with buckets of water. In some parts of Poland, the women repaid the favor on Tuesday.

 

Christmas

Christmas Eve, or Wigilia (Vigil Day), is traditionally more sacred than Christmas Day. The house is decorated with evergreen branches; a spruce or pine bough, decorated with apples and nuts, paper chains and cutouts, hangs over the table at which the Christmas Eve supper is eaten. The table for the Christmas Eve dinner is usually covered with a white tablecloth under which straws of hay, reminiscent of the manger, have been placed. The meal begins when the evening star is sighted. After prayer, an oplatek, a round wafer similar to communion wafers, but not consecrated, is broken into pieces and shared among everyone at the table, with each person offering good wishes to everyone else present for the year to come. (It is traditional to invite close friends and family members to share the Wigilia dinner, which is both solemn and joyous.) No meat is served during the Wigilia meal, which consists of thirteen different dishes as a reminder of the Last Supper. These dishes may be simple or elaborate; the point is to have abundant variety, of which everyone can partake. The one required food, aside from the oplatek, is kutia, a dish eaten after the sharing of the wafer. Kutia is a thick farina or barley porridge, sweetened with honey and often containing milk and poppy seeds. It is also served on All Souls’ Day in commemoration of the dead, and sometimes at funeral meals. After the meal, gifts are distributed to the children and the family gathers to sing carols until it is time to leave for church to attend the midnight Mass of the Shepherd (pasterka).

Christmas Day traditionally was observed much more solemnly than Christmas in America. It was a day of complete rest, on which not even meals were to be prepared. The more social celebrations of the Christmas season began the day after Christmas, on St. Stephen’s Day, which was a day for exchanging visits. Poles have a tradition of group caroling, and of constructing elaborate manger scenes which are either displayed in churches or public halls, or carried around by the carolers as they sing. Unlike the singing of carols in the family home, which takes place on Christmas Eve, group caroling begins only on St. Stephen’s Day. In the old days, wandering troupes of carolers might perform throughout the month of January was well, including in their repertoire religious dramas performed as either puppet shows or plays with live actors.

 

Hungary

Hungarians, who are either Catholic or Protestant, celebrate Karácsony (Christmas) with large family reunions. The Christmas tree is decorated in the afternoon of Christmas Eve, while the children go for a lengthy walk with an aunt or uncle. When everything is ready and the children have returned home, another relative secretly rings a small bell and the entire family enters the room where the decorated Christmas tree stands, lit by candles and sparklers. Presents – brought by Jézuska (Baby Jesus) – are opened then. On Christmas Day, after attending the Church service, the family meets again in the home of another member, and sits down to a large dinner. Beigli is a dessert on everybody’s menu. A week later, on New Year’s Eve, the celebration takes a boisterous turn: just before midnight city dwellers go out in the streets, and greet the arrival of the New Year by making loud noises and throwing confetti and streamers.

Easter is the greatest festival of spring. Every family paints eggs, often using a special traditional technique: designs – mostly flower patterns – are drawn on the eggs with wax, then the eggs are dipped into cold paint. The second day of Easter used to be called Luca napja (Dunking Monday), because of a peculiar custom: on this day young men would throw girls into water and dunk them. Nowadays the custom is much milder and very sweet smelling: a drop of perfume applied on the girls’ or women’s hair takes care of the ritual, for which the boys or men are rewarded with Easter eggs and cakes.

 

Romania

The Romanians’ religion is Orthodox, but, unlike their Orthodox neighbors (Serbs, Bulgarians, Russians), they celebrate Christmas and the other religious festivals and holidays according to the Gregorian calendar (i.e. the holidays coincide with those of the Catholic and Protestant believers). The winter holiday season starts with the day of St. Nicholas (December 6) and ends a month later, on St. John’s day (January 7). People bearing the names of Nicholas, John, or Basil (January 1) throw large parties for their friends. Christmas trees are decorated with garlands, balls, and special candies wrapped in shiny paper. On Christmas Eve groups of children go from house to house and sing carols or sometimes carry a large decorated star of Bethlehem and tell the story of the birth of Christ. Hosts reward them with oranges, cookies, or money. On Christmas Eve, family members, after giving presents to each another, sit down to a rich dinner, which among other courses, must feature sarmale (stuffed cabbage). Often, the dinner ends in caroling. On Christmas Day people go to church and then sit down to another big dinner where the great quantity of food is matched by the abundance of wine and spirits. New Year’s Eve is the time for children to team up again and go about their neighborhood. They make loud noises by cracking whips, ringing sheep bells, and reciting traditional poems for the New Year. This is similar to an old farm custom called plugu(orul (the plow). In this ceremony boys hold rods decked with paper flowers called sorcova and wish every passer-by wealth and happiness in the New Year. The departure of the Old Year and the arrival of the New one is yet another reason for friends and family to get together and party until dawn. Another kind of new year is observed throughout the month of March: women wear m(r(isor (little March) i.e. tassels of red and white thread with little charms attached to them, a custom honoring the onset of the new year in ancient Rome.

 

Czech Republic

Christmas Customs

The Christmas season begins on December 6, Saint Nicholas day. On that day Czechs hold parties at which there are three guests of honor dressed as an angel, a devil, and St. Nicholas. The devil looks for naughty children and rattles his chain. He will give bad children a sooty lump of coal or might even try to drag them off. The Angel smiles upon the good children and helps St. Nicholas to distribute gifts.

A few days before Christmas, families get busy with preparing cookies, food, and presents. Although Americans will usually have a turkey or ham or other festive meat for Christmas, the traditional Czech dish is carp. Carp are rather like large goldfish, and are used as ornamental fish in many fancy gardens here in the US. Czechs who live in the villages raise carp in artificial ponds all year long. When Christmas time comes around, the villagers will drain their ponds and gather the fish in big tubs to take to the city for sale. On the street corners in big cities, fish sellers will stand with a butcher block and scales to weigh and sell the fish. If you want, they will clean the fish right there on the street and wrap it up. However, many Czechs want their carp to be as fresh as possible, so they bring a bucket of water to take their fish home in. Once at home, they will fill up the bathtub and let the fish swim around in it until they are ready to cook it. You might have to wait until the carp is roasting in the oven before you can take your bath on Christmas Eve!

After the carp is eaten, the children are sent off to their room for a while, where their mother might read them a story, because the father has an important job to do. He will put up the Christmas tree and decorate it all at once, put the presents in piles (one for each child) under the tree and light candles and sparklers on it. Czechs like to hang chocolates on their trees, and other ornaments are often made of common domestic materials such as straw, cloth, or baked dough. When the tree is all ready, the father rings a bell and the children come running to see the tree brightly shining. They open their presents and then the family stands around the tree singing Christmas carols. Because St. Nicholas already brought them gifts a couple of weeks earlier, the children are told that these presents are from the baby Jesus. People also go caroling from one house to another, and like our trick-or-treaters, they will receive various goodies, such as nuts, fruit, and chocolates.

The holiday season closes with a New Year’s party, called Silvestr in honor of St. Sylvester, whose name comes on that day. This party is very similar to ours, with feasting , drinking and waiting to ring in the new year at midnight.

 

Easter

The other big holiday that is observed is Easter. Weeks before the actual holiday there is a masquerade parade in which people put on all kinds of funny costumes and walk through the streets. This is similar to, though not as extravagant as, the Mardi Gras celebrated in New Orleans. Czechs enjoy using a variety of noisemakers on this holiday, and a favorite one is a wooden ratchet. These come in many sizes, and most of them work by waving them in the air, which causes them to spin with a loud clatter. In some villages they have ratchets so big that they are like wheelbarrows, and you have to work them by pushing them down the street, since no one could wave them.

When it gets closer to the actual holiday, Czechs also color eggs like we do, although it is still popular to use natural dyes of one sort or another. The easiest one to use is old onion skins — you just collect all your onion skins for a few weeks and then boil the eggs along with the onion skins, and this gives them a lovely rich yellow-orange color. Sometimes people will paint designs of starbursts or flowers on the eggs in wax to create a pretty pattern. This leads to another round of trick-or-treating, this time for Easter eggs.

Boys take branches from trees or bushes (willows work best) and braid them and decorate them with ribbons, making switches about 2 feet long called pomlazky. They carry these about and occasionally use them to spank young girls (just in fun, of course).

A traditional Easter meal will include lamb or a cake made in the shape of a lamb (from dough like the one used for the Czech Christmas bread).

 

Other times of year

On every day of the year there is at least one saint who is commemorated, and these days are holidays for anyone who has that name. They are called namesdays and are celebrated rather like birthdays. Czech calendars have these names printed right on them, so you will know when to congratulate your friends and bring them presents. It’s a lot easier than remembering birthdays!

If you don’t live in the city, every once in a while someone in your neighborhood will slaughter a pig. Maybe this doesn’t sound very nice, but it is always a big occasion. It can happen at any time of year, but is more common in the summer. This is a festive ritual that involves making every part of the pig into some useful (usually edible) product, and there are some special pork delicacies that are served up only at this time. You can think of it as a distant relative of our local pig pickin’.

Am intrat pe usa la magazinul La Dumitrescu cu un pic de entuziasm mascat ,deoarce eram insotit cu cineva care nu e roman.Ma gandeam la produsele alimentare pe care memoria mea inca le considera speciale.

Nu m am lasat descurajat de vanzatoarea care parea sa isi spuna povestea vieti strigand intr-un mobil de ultima generatie.Sau de faptul ca pe rafturile aranjate cu gust ( trebuie sa mentionez ca m am intrebat daca au folosit un interior designer sau doar au copiat stilul) sunt doar cateva produse raspandite in asa fel incat sa creeze impresia de belsug in oferta.

Incurcat ,ma blockez cand realizez ca era sa cer Parizer in engleza.Trec pe romana ,cu gandul ca oricum nu puteam spune Parizer in engleza.De 2 x ori idiot.Observ sticle de vin in stanga si ma intrept catre ele.Huh,costa mai mult decat in magazinele turcesti din nordul Londrei !.Ma uit din la produsele din jur care pare sa strige la mine : Am venit cu tirul ascuns intre roti! Ma mustru singur pt propriul meu gand rautacios si zambind fortat ,intreb vanzatoarea care parea sa fi trait 200 de ani si ingaim in romana:

-Aveti bere romaneasca?

-Asa a spus,tu! Nici imi venea sa cred! …..mda…acolo in frigider!

Pescuiesc 4 beri din frigider si le pun pe tejghea cu grija sa nu o fac sa isi piarda firul povesti sale.

Presimtind ca are sa dureze un pic pana are sa isi intinda mana sa primeasca bacnota de £ 20.00 lire pe care am intins o las pe tejghea si incep sa studiez magazinul pt a avea ocupatie.Defect profesional.Am facut interiorul la un magazin de indian in South Wimbledon cu ani in urma.Ultima oara cand am intrat acolo,am iesit repede rusinat de greselile in design ,cu o cafea gratis in mana ,oferita de un vanzator care ma recunoscut.

Pe tejghea in fata ,un teanc de ziare cu titlu Roman in UK.Curios ridic unul si il rasfoiesc repede.Ma uit la anunturile romanilor de pe ultima pagina.Teribil.Toata lumea cauta de munca,in unele anunturii simti un pic de disperare.Ma intorc la o pagina care e acoperita de un editoral lung si siropos.E scris de Domnisoara Cristina Irimie,iar fiecare rand citit imi sugereaza ca toti romani sunt rusinati de faptul ca sunt romani.Imi explica ca trebuie sa fim uniti si mandrii de ceea ce suntem iar ea exista pt a salva romani de la o moarte etnica si sociala inevitabila.

Hmmm.Sunt de acord cu Domnisoara ,chiar admir patriotismul extrem de feminin de care da dovada.Ignor faptul ca deja stiu ca Domnisoara Irimia lucreaza ca directoare a unei firme de cleaning.Creez in minte instinctiv un motto pt strategia de marketing a firmei domniei sale : Get a proud romanian to clean your toilets! Pay for 1 romanian ,get 1 free!

Sunt sigur ca Domnisoara Irimia ,plateste angajatelor sale mai mult decat salariul minim pe economie.Cu putin optimism ,salariul minim din Uk si nu din Romania.

Ma mustru pt a 3 oara de cand sunt intrat in magazin.Eu ar trebui sa o inteleg cel mai bine.Am fost des in pozitia Domniei sale,cand fortat de competitie a trebuie sa scad salarile la cei care lucreaza pt mine.Sau cu timp in urma,sa intamplat in asa fel incat a trebuit sa renunt eu la a ma plati singur pt a avea indeajuns bani pt a plati pe ceilanti desi am muncit alaturi de ei.

Oricat ma straduiesc, nu pot sa ignor banuiala secreta ca Domnisoara Irimia nu e ceea ce pare.Sau faptul ca nu pierde niciodata ocazia sa afirma ca ziarul reprezinta Romani din UK,inclusiv pe mine si Parizerul de pe tejgheaua din fata mea.Pt a consolida afirmatia imi explica ca ziarul este luat in serios de catre autoritatile locale si romane.Ciudat ,nu ma simt teribil de norocos sa fiu reprezentat de Domniile sale.

-Optspe-73!

Imi ridic privirea din ziar ma uit dezorientat in jur.

-18.73 spune din nou vanzatoarea ,tinand mobilul intre umar si ureche.

Imping bacnota un centimetru in directia ei si urmaresc unghile ei rosi apucand bacnoata cu stangacie.Imi trece prin minte ca e nevasta propietarului.Iar propietarul e sofer de TIR.Ma uit pe tejghea si imi trece prin minte ca suna cam scump pt o bucata de parizer si 4 beri.Langa bere si parizer vad ciocolata si alte pachetele care aratau a napoliatane

-I want those ,spune persoana care ma insotea.

-She says thats what you need, if you wanna have a romanian dinner.

 

Ma uit la ziarul din mana mea si stau nehotarat daca sa il cumpar sau nu.

Costa £ 1.00. Imi permit o lira.Dar ceva in mine ma opreste.

Creierul meu inca cauta motto pt firma de curatenie a Domnisoarei Irimia:

‘ A proud cleaner is a better cleaner?!’ Nahh ,nu e indeajuns de bun…si nu ma refer doar la romanian dinner.

 

How to lose your love in 30 seconds

Love is not fashionable anymore. Cynicism and arrogance rule and ‘hard to get ‘’ attitude. The war between sexes acquired the pattern of a competition of gaining emotional independence. Romanticism has a scent of granny’s cold cream, forgotten in a drawer. It reminds of your childhood but you never wear it in public. You don’t want to smell of ‘’ grandma. We are educated not to take emotional risks. He who loves less is more powerful. No pain no game seems to be a good motto in everything but love. In love that means weakness.Wise men say the first 30 seconds are decisive. It’s all you need to know if you could fall in love with someone you see for the first time. Scientifically, love at first sight exists. You should panic. We live in the speed era. You’d better think how many 30 seconds you have wasted so far. You seem to have encountered love at first sight but so many times you could have lived it.We carry a baggage of non-assumed love stories, because the stories do begin once with the decisive moment. It’s for that you need guts.The courage to overcome prejudices and fear of being rejected.So try to look in your 30 second-collection and ask yourself whether you haven’t missed a great love story just because you haven’t had guts
