Singuratatea a devenit o boala rusinoasa?
O povestire spusa de Uncle Frank Davis(pawnee nation),a trecut in lumea spiritelor la 86 ani cu 7 ani in urma.Pe numele adevarat de indian-american,
La un gathering cu 8 ani in urma,in upstate NY al multor triburi de indieni si targ am auzit aceasta povestire ce a spus-o tuturor,cred ca eram vreo 200 cel putin.Am inregistrat-o pe casetofon,acum scriu voua si ascult acea voce aparte plina de intelepciune:
"Mama mea a fost o mama buna.Am gindit mereu despre ea ca este cea mai inteleapta persoana in lume.Deci,intr-o zi cind eram copil,poate 6-7 ani am intrebat-o cum as putea si eu la rindul meu sa fiu la fel de intelept ca ea.
A inceput sa rada si mi-a spus ca-s prea mic pt. a pune astfel de intrebare.
Dar a zis ca daca tot am intrebat-o,imi va raspunde.
Si a zis asa:'Viata e ca o poteca in padure pe care mergi singur.Daca e sa te odihnesti,te vei odihni pe poteca si nu linga ea.Daca reusesti sa treci peste noapte si vine o noua zi in viata ta,te scoli si pornesti din nou pe drumul potecii.
In lungul potecii invatam multe si gasim la ficare pas bucatele de hirtie,pe fiecare e scrisa o noua experienta.Trebuie sa adunam aceste hirtiute si sa le punem in buzunar.Apoi intr-o buna zi vom avea destule hirtiute sa citim si sa gindim ce spun fiecare.Toate la un loc vor face o fraza care ne va spune ce avem de facut si invatat.Poate unele fraze nu au deloc sens,poate altele au realul sens ce cautam de la drumul nostru.
Citeste bine si gindeste cu inima doar.Apoi pune hirtiutele inapoi in buzunar si continua-ti drumul pe poteca pt. ca vor fi multe alte hirtiute de cules.mai tirziu le citim din nou si poate invatam mai multe lucruri si capatam mai multa intelepciune.
Cu cit citim mai mult,invatam mai mult rostul vietii.Putem deveni intelepti ori cel putin,mai intelepti decit suntem.
Dar daca nu adunam deloc hirtiutele si nu le citim niciodata,ne vom rataci pe
poteca si ne vom pierde in padure si acolo nu putem fi singuri cu noi si Creatorul,pt. ca Marele Spirit ne scrie aceste biletele prin care na da instructiuni cum sa fim in viata.Dar sa tii mereu minte copile,chiar daca aduni toate biletelele inca vei mai avea multe de invatat.Nimeni nu ajunge sa cunoasca toate raspunsurile si poteca e tare lunga."
Uncle Frank continua cu parerea lui acum:
"Am incercat toata viata sa adun aceste biletele,asa cum mama mi-a spus.
Dar am scapat din vedere citeva.Dupa aceea unele lucruri nu aveau nici un sens.Inca incerc si acum sa-mi dau seama oare ce era scris pe cele scapate din vedere.
....Noaptea trecuta am vazut pe sotia mea(nota lui Ozzy:murise cu 2 ani inaintea acelui moment de povestire si aici el plinge!)in vis. M-a chemat pe nume.Statea de partea cealalta a unui drum.Mi-a spus ca vrea sa fie impreuna cu mine dar nu poate trece drumul spre mine.Mi-a spus ca eu sunt cel care trebuie sa treaca drumul ca sa fim impreuna.A intins mina spre mine si mereu ma cheama(aici Uncle Frank plinge din nou).Imi e tare dor de ea si ii simt lipsa mereu in mine.Cred ca a sosit timpul sa trec peste drum la ea."

O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf
La ei se poate face o istorie a fotografiei, la noi nu, caci suntem mai inapoiati, probabil... si cum pe vremea lu` Dracula nu se faceau poze, e pacat, pentru ca atit i-ar duce mintea, "Pictures with dr.Acula"...
Dar avem si noi partea noastra de vina.
HP Declare British National Photo Album a Success
HP Press Release 01/09/04
Britain's first National Photo Album unearths hidden photographic treasures
HP is pleased to announce the initial success of the National Photo Album, one of the most ambitious public archiving projects in recent history. Having urged the nation to dust off its old photograph albums and rummage through its attics, HP has been astonished to see people react so positively.
With over 5,000 images already submitted and more than 300,000 hits in the first two months, The National Photo Album has been embraced by the public. The search has uncovered some hidden gems from the photo albums of members of the public, such as:
- The enchanting image of Big Ben taken during the strikes in the 1970s, when fuel was at a premium and the spot lights had to be switched off
- A chance meeting with George Best relaxing on holiday in Majorca in 1972
- Young twins working a wooden washing machine in 1939
- A boxing match between sailors, to entertain the troops on HMS Emperor of India in 1915
"We expected a good response, but I don't think we ever imagined that people would react in such a positive manner. The HP National Photo Album is quickly turning into the vital photographic resource we always hoped it would. And there's no doubt that The Daily Mirror has contributed enormously to our success as we supplied its 'Pic of the Week' for almost two months," said Peter Urey, marketing and category manager for HP's Imaging and Printing Group. "No one else is providing a photographic resource which contains pictures solely taken by everyday people and we believed that this difference would offer a 'back stage pass' to our history, now we know for sure that it does."
The aim of The National Photo Album was to search for images of individuals, families, workplaces, events, outings, cities, towns and villages, all accompanied with the story behind each picture; anything which revealed something of the way Britain has worked, played, lived and loved over the past two hundred years. The results have been fascinating with a hugely varied collection of pictures and stories.
"The HP National Photo Album is an excellent incentive to keep British History alive," said one of the National Photo Album's visitors. "It's always great to be able to see other people's pictures of years, events and times gone by and I'm certain that as the word spreads, it will be a much visited site."
"We were hoping for pictures which would immediately provoke attention such as pictures of Elvis Presley's only visit to the UK, but what we have found is that we have received a far more interesting selection of stories," added Urey. "When you read a story about a 10 year old boy, with numerous siblings who was the only bread winner in his family, you realise the importance of these pictures as historical materials."
The HP National Photo Album is free to access at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk Anyone wanting to contribute to the archive can offer their pictures for consideration in one of two ways.
- Option 1: Upload images directly onto the archive at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk by following simple step by step instructions.
- Option 2: Submit entries via post to HP National Photo Album, 31 St. Petersburgh Place, London W2 4LA where they will be vetted and uploaded by experts.
*All images must be accompanied by a suitably sized self-addressed envelope. Every effort will be made to return the images in good order but HP cannot be held liable for damaged or lost photographs.
HP has a unique history and expertise in digital imaging. Currently it is assisting museums and art galleries around the world including the UK's National Gallery, in digitising their collections to ensure that the world's most important images are captured for posterity. Now it is turning its attention to the treasure trove of photographs that lie gathering dust in the nation's attics.
By digitising and storing these valuable images HP is aiming to ensure that this valuable photographic inheritance is not lost and can be shared with millions of people. Suitable pictures will be added to the HP National Photo Album which will be a searchable online database of images that can be accessed and downloaded for free.

Instructions for a wife then and now
la: 16/11/2004 04:16:47
The following is from a 1950's Home Economics textbook intended for
the High School girls, teaching how to prepare for married life.
1. Have dinner ready: Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a
delicious meal - on time. This is a way of letting him know that you
have been thinking about him, and are concerned about his needs. Most
men are hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal
are part of the warm welcome needed.
2. Prepare yourself: Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed
when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and
be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people. Be
a little gay and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a
3. Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of
the house just before your husband arrives, gathering up school books,
toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband
will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give
you a lift too.
4. Prepare the children: Take a few minutes to wash the children's
hands and faces if they are small, comb their hair, and if necessary,
change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to
see them playing the part.
5. Minimize the noise: At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise
of washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children
to be quiet. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be
glad to see him.
6. Some DON'TS: Don't greet him with problems or complaints. Don't
complain if he's late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with
what he might have gone through that day.
7. Make him comfortable: Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or
suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready
for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in
a low, soft, soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax and
8. Listen to him: You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the
moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.
9. Make the evening his: Never complain if he does not take you out to
dinner or to other places of entertainment; instead try to understand
his world of strain and pressure and his need to be home and relax.
10. The Goal: Try to make your home a place of peace and order where
your husband can relax.
Now The updated version for the 2000s woman.
1. Have dinner ready: Make reservations ahead of time. If your day
becomes too hectic just leave him a voice mail message regarding where
you'd like to eat and at what time. This lets him know that your day
has been crappy and gives him an opportunity to change your mood.
2. Prepare yourself: A quick stop at the "LANCOME" counter on your way
home will do wonders for your outlook and will keep you from becoming
irritated every time he belches at the table. (Don't forget to use his
3. Clear away the clutter: Call the housekeeper and let her know
you'll need her for an extra day this week. Tell her that any
miscellaneous items left on the floor by the children can be placed in
the Goodwill box in the garage.
4. Prepare the children: Drop them off at grandma's!
5. Minimize the noise: When he arrives at home remind him that the
washer and garbage disposal are still not working properly and the
noise is driving you crazy (but do this in a nice way and greet him
with a warm smile...this way he might fix it faster).
6. Some DON'TS: Don't greet him with problems and complaints. Let him
speak first, and then your complaints will get more attention and
remain fresh in his mind throughout dinner. Don't complain if he's
late for dinner. Simply remind him that the last one home does the
cooking and the cleanup.
7. Make him comfortable: Remind him where he can find a warm fuzzy
blanket if he's cold. This will show you really care.
8. Listen to him: But don't ever let him get the last word.
9. Make the evening his: a chance to get the washer and garbage
10. The Goal: To try to keep things amicable without reminding him
that you make more money than he does.
Pt RSI si Simeon Dascalu - nu numai Americanii

Se pare ca amindoi aveti dreptate.
Planul de a dezmembra Yugoslavia a fost in programul tuturor tarilor vestice. Consiliul de Securitate al ONU nu a aprobat-o, China si Ruaia s-au opus, de aceea NATO a luat-o pe raspunderea ei.
Inainte de inceperea conflictului, trupele speciale franceza au antrenat pe Croati si pregatit pentru una din cele mai mari dislocari de populatie cunoscuta in istoria lumii. In 24 de ore 6 milioane de sirbi au fost aruncati din Croatia peste granita. Asta deja s-a uitat si nu se mai vorbeste de ea. Nu a fost considerata o criza mondiala, crima impotriva umanitatii, etc...
Si asa a inceputl sfirsitul Yugoslaviei. Yougoslavia era prea mare si prea puternica economic sa fie manipulata din afara. Asa ca s-au folosit de ocazie sa o deztrame. Croatia, tara catolica, trebuia sa intre in EU, Kosovo are zacamintele cele mai mari de Plutoniu si Uraniu si americanii au nevoie de el pentru armele nucleare...
Cind spui ca nu am avut relatii bune cu Yugoslavia te inseli. Yougoslavia este singura tara vecina cu care nu am avut nici un conflict militar in toata istoria poporului nostru.
In ce priveste Irakul, cu toate ca se afla departe de noi, nu va fi ultima aventura americana. Daca intelegeti engleza va rog sa cititi articolul de mai jos:
***The Pentagon has made a blistering attack on American journalist Seymour Hersh for claiming the United States has been preparing for possible air strikes against Iran.
But the US Government has not denied his central allegation.
In today's edition of The New Yorker magazine, Hersh uses unnamed government sources in an article claiming the US has been undertaking reconnaissance missions, gathering information about Iran's nuclear, chemical and biological facilities.
He alleges extensive planning has been under way for possible air strikes against Iran since the middle of last year.
Dupa cum se vede, America deja a planuit sa bombardeze Iranul... si poate dupa aia Siria...
Numai ca la momentul de fata nu-si pot permite inca un razboi. Cel din Irak s-a dovedit mult mai lung si mult mai greu decit se asteptau.
Cu tot circul organizat dupa caderea lui Saddam - demolarea statuii, demonstratii etc... Irakienii nu au iesit cu flori sa intimpine tancurile americane... Dimpotriva... Si va mai dura!
Singura noastra speranta sa sa devenim parte din EU. Altfel cince stie ce se mai planuieste la Washington si pentru noi.
Vom scrie si noi poezii ca vecinii nostri:
"Ce bine e-n tufis la noi,
B52, B52, B52..."

Trancaneala Aristocrata "7"
desi cred ca a mai aparut si multi o cunosc, ma bazez pe cei mai uituci;)
True australain ghost story
This story happened a while ago in Brisbane, and even though it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's true.
John Bradford, a Sydney University student, was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a storm. The night
was rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so strong he could
hardly see a few feet ahead of him.
Suddenly he saw a car slowly coming towards him and stopped. John, desperate for shelter and without thinking about it, got in the car and closed the door, just to realize there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn't on!
The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road and saw a curve approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then,
just before he hit the curve, a hand appeared through the window and turned the wheel. John, paralysed with terror, watched how the hand appeared every time they came to a curve.
John saw the lights of a pub down the road so,gathering strength, jumped out of the car and ran to it. Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and asked for two shots of tequila.
He then started telling everybody about the horrible experience he went through... A silence enveloped everybody when they realized he was crying and....wasn't drunk.
About 15 minutes later, two guys walked into the same pub. They were also wet and out of breath. Looking around and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar, one said to the other, "Look, Bruce... Here's the F*cking idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it."

se-nvatase de-acuma ca daca-si cumpara bilete la strapontina, ii ajung banii sa vada mai multe spectacole pe luna. avea un buget limitat pentru distractie. nu era deloc un usuratic. ii picasera ochii pe cea de-a treia dansatoare, de la stanga la dreapta, cum se trage cortina, . incepuse sa-i picteze amintirea, inca din prima seara. cand se trezea picat prea indealung in visare, recurgea la simpla ciupitura de antebrat, si revenea cu picioarele pe pamant.
dar oare, era chiar asa de rau sa fii visator? in definitiv, nu era nici arhanghel.. si nici vreun postmodern preot. era doar un simplu muritor de rand, ce tocmai isi descoperise o noua pasiune... sa-si picteze amintirile...:)

The evidences clearly showed that the twins captured in the mirror chaired the gathering of the intruders in Trafalgar Square. They were also included on the 10 most wanted fighters against the Great Sourcerer's Council. The reward hunter was now facing a big problem - how to get the twins out of the mirror?

(fac fixatii cand nu imi pot aminti numele unui film, autor, melodie etc)
am cautat dimineata. filmul se numeste "the gathering" e din 2002, cu Christina Ricci in rolul principal.
pasaj dintr-un brief despre el:
"Cassie Grant eventually finds out that the relief in the church illustrates a group of people who are called The Gathering. They are immortal and damned to watch catastrophes and murders, because they stopped to watch the crucifixion of Christ out of morbid curiosity."

in comunicare increderea e totul.
altfel nu se mai numeste comunicare. se numeste gathering information. for war, you know :))
de multe ori comunicarea este unidirectionala... de la cel ce are incredere la cel ce nu are.
de la mine la tine ... from jamaica to the world :P
