...inca era "juna" si nu stia!

Se stie de cind lumea: aparentzele inseala!

Ar fi pacat sa incepem acum sa-i categorisim pe preotzi; sau pe "june". Fiecare cu crucea lui.

junele spaniol - de Simeon Dascalul la: 17/01/2007 11:52:42
(la: Sunt "corect politic"?)
junele spaniol poate să zică din partea mea orice are chef pe motiv că:
1. nu stau în părerea lui
2. dacă asta crede, dar n-are voie să spună, nu văd unde-i gheşeftul
3. dulcea corectitudine politică a determinat ambiguitatea naţionalitate / cetăţenie şi ca atare la reputaţia noastră externă pune umărul serios şi o etnie mai colorată

eventual aş prefera, în ştirile cu delincvenţi, clarificarea etniei, dar asta ar fi foarte incorect politic ....

Din străinătate

Când tot se-nveseleste, când toti aici se-ncântă,
Când toti îsi au plăcerea si zile fără nori,
Un suflet numai plânge, în doru-i se avântă
L-al patriei dulci plaiuri, la câmpii-i râzători.

Si inima aceea, ce geme de durere,
Si sufletul acela, ce cântă amortit,
E inima mea tristă ce n-are mângâiere,
E sufletu-mi, ce arde de dor nemărginit.

As vrea să văd acuma natala mea vâlcioară,
Scăldată în cristalul pârâului de-argint,
Să văd ce ei atâta iubeam odinioară :
A codtului tenebră, poetic labirint ;

Să mai salut o dată colibele din vale,
Dorminde cu un aer de pace, linistiri,
Ce respirau în taină plăceri mai naturale,
Visări misterioase, poetice soptiri.

As vrea să am o casă tăcută, mitutică,
În valea mea natală ce undula de flori,
Să tot privesc la munte, în sus cum se ridică,
Pierzându-si a sa frunte în negură si nori.

Să mai privesc o dată câmpoa-nfloritoare,
Ce zilele-mi copile si albe le-a tesut,
Ce auzi odată copila-mi murmurare,
Ce jocurile-mi june, zburdarea mi-a văzut.

Melodica soptire a râului, ce geme,
Concertul, ce-l întoană al păsărilor cor,
Cântarea în cadentă a frunzelor, ce freme,
Născură-acolo-n mine soptiri de-un gingas dor.

Da ! Da ! As fi ferice, de-as fi încă o dată
În patria-mi iubită, în lucul meu natal,
Să pot a binezice cu mintea-nflăcărată
Visările juniei, visări de-un ideal.

Chiar moartea ce răspânde teroare-n omenire,
Prin vinele vibrânde ghetoasele-i fiori,
Acolo m-ar adoarme în dulce linistire,
În visuri fericite m-ar duce către nori

Mai sunt si altii ! - de sorin_1967 la: 02/12/2003 18:21:08
(la: Preot de 73 de ani, violator si tata nelegitim...)
Mai sunt si altii Sanjuro, multi altii in afara de Parintele Galeriu, insa nenorocirea este ca mass-media scoate in evidenta mai mult lucrurile negative care se petrec, decat cele pozitive. Oricum nu as vrea sa fiu in locul unui Preot care "se joaca" cu harul care l-a primit. Doar cand ma gandesc sa aud cuvintele : "Ti-am dat har si ce ai facut cu el ?" ma infior. E foarte grea viata de Preot si foarte mare responsabilitatea. Oricum adevartii Preoti nu intra in incurcaturi ca cea mentionata de tine. Pe de alta parte, nici cu juna nu mi-e rusine, stii e ca chestia aia : "S-a sinucis, si-a tras 3 gloante in cap :)"

Best regards,

Sorin

Tragedie in lumea fotografiei mondiale. - de Dinu Lazar la: 24/01/2004 04:49:16
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Helmut Newton, un mare fotograf, unul din cei mai mari ai tuturor timpurilor, ne-a parasit...

Photographer Helmut Newton Killed in Crash

LOS ANGELES - Acclaimed fashion photographer Helmut Newton died Friday after his car sped out of control from the driveway of the famed Chateau Marmont hotel and crashed into a wall, police said. He was 83.

AP Photo

Newton, whose work appeared in magazines such as Playboy, Elle and Vogue, was best known for his stark, black-and-white nude photos of women.

Newton apparently lost control of his Cadillac while leaving the Hollywood hotel, said Officer April Harding, a police spokeswoman. It was unclear whether he became ill while driving.

People were on the sidewalk in front of the driveway, and the car brushed a photographer heading into the hotel before crashing into the wall.

Newton was taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he died a short time later, Harding said.

Newton was a trailblazer in the fashion photography world, exploring power, gender roles and an icy sexuality in his pictures.

His trademark "Big Nudes" series featured larger-than-life, black-and-white images of women that portray them as dominating the camera rather than as subjects.

Among the beautiful and powerful people Newton has photographed were Paloma Picasso, Pierre Cardin, Naomi Campbell, Jean-Marie Le Pen and Claudia Schiffer.

While Newton also photographed clothed celebrities and nature scenes, he favored photographing women, usually while they wore little more than high heels.

"He was a giant," said Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. "He was a major talent that pushed the boundaries in terms of photography and influenced many, many other photographers in following generations."

The German-born photographer said in his 2002 autobiography that when he was 15, he told his father he wanted to be a photographer. The Berlin factory owner told him, "My boy, you'll end up in the gutter. All you think of is girls and photos."

Newton, who was Jewish, fled his homeland for Singapore in December 1938, a month after Nazi-led persecution programs began. He eventually settled in Australia and became a citizen, opening a small photography studio and changing his last name to Newton from Neustaedter.

He later took up residence in Monte Carlo, overlooking the Mediterranean — a frequent backdrop for his nude images.

In the prologue to his autobiography, he said his fascination with women dated back to when he was a toddler and recalled seeing his nurse "getting ready to go out, and she is half-naked" in front of a mirror. He described it as a defining moment in his life.

In October, he donated more than 1,000 pictures to a new gallery in Berlin, saying he was proud his work would now be on display in his hometown.

Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder called Newton's decision a "sign of reconciliation."

"You can chase a man out of his home but you can't rip his home out of his soul," Schroeder said in a letter read at the news conference announcing the donation.

Newton's coldly erotic imagery often alarmed feminists as well as those with tamer sensibilities.

A hosiery ad he shot, featured on a giant billboard in Times Square for a time, was banned from the side of New York City buses in 1998 because it was deemed to be too racy. It showed a rear-end view of a woman lying face-down, wearing only a pair of stockings. A side view of her bare breast also was visible.

Newton is survived by his wife, June, who works under the name Alice Springs. She was also a favorite subject for the photographer. In one 1973 series of photos, she was portrayed as Hitler wearing a cropped mustache, with model Jerry Hall posing as Eva Braun. The Newtons had no children.

Plecatul in Canada din Spania - de (anonim) la: 16/03/2004 13:34:12
(la: Romani in strainatate)
1. in primul rind ar trebui sa faci o lista cu de ce vrei sa pleci in Canada. Adica fii atent ce-ti doresti, s-ar putea sa se implineasca !!!! Presupun ca unul dintre motive este ca in Spania nu ai acte ceea ce nu ar fi cazul in Canada. Ceea ce e un motiv valabil.

DAR sunt citeva lucruri la care trebuie sa te gindesti

- in Canada sunt foarte multi noi veniti (CU DREPT DE MUNCA) si in consecinta presiunea pe piata de munca poate fi mai serioasa decit in Spania. Cu alte cuvinte ca proaspat venit nu va fi deloc usor sa gasesti o slujba decenta.

- vremea este mai degraba gri si ti se va parea cu atat mai mult cu cit vii din insorita Spanie.

- cei care vin din Europa de Vest regreta fostul loc in primii doi ani.

ALTFEL, doar in ceea ce priveste emigrarea

- poti merge prin programul federal sau prin cel provincial. (ex. Quebec). Diferenta ? Provinciile sunt mai flexibile referitor la meseria pe care trebuie sa o ai si in general ai interviul mai devreme decit cu federalii. Dar vei plati ceva mai mult - cam 300 in dolari americani. Totusi in total procesul dureaza tot atat de mult prin federali ca si prin provincie. (teoretic dosarul de provincie merge la provincie, e aprobat (eventual) si apoi merge la federali pentru aprobarea finala; cel de federali merge direct la federali. DAR TOTUL DUREAZA TOT ATAT - cred ca 1.5 ani sau 2 daca esti in Vest)

- legea care se aplica este cea care a intrat in vigoare in Junie 2002 - (issue 20 and issue 37 Canada Gazette - unde a fost publicata). Sistemul este pe puncte dar initial baremul a fost atat de ridicat incit mai nimeni nu s-ar fi calificat. Intre timp au coborat baremul si verifica-l pe cel curent ca sunt o gramada de decizii si modificari ref. la cite puncte sunt ok. Initial a fost 75 acum se poate sa fie 65 dar nu sunt sigura.

- daca ai nevoie de avocati/ consultanti da de stire si cred ca putem recomanda. DAR in general pentru Canada nu ai nevoie de avocat si-ti poti face dosarul singur(a).

- sistemul de puncte se aplica pentru emigratia economica - adica independenta. O alta metoda ar fi imigratia de familie. Cazul clasic este casatoria. O alta situatie, mai putin folosita este prevederea legala ca un Canadian (rezident sau cetatean) care nu are de sponsorizat rude de gradul intii isi poate sponsoriza o ruda de oricat de departe ca grad de rudenie. Poate esti in situatia asta....

- o alta situatie in care te poti gasi este sa lucrezi pentru o firma canadiana - de exemplu a cruise line. In aceasta situatie intr-un an teoretic poti deveni imigrant. Firma - daca e cruise - ar avea sediul in Canada dar nu ar lucra in Canada intr-un fel, insa conditiile de emigrare ar fi indeplinite. Valabil pt. orice firma canadiana. N-am idee daca un asa animal exista dar poate.....

DOSARUL DE CANADIENI:

- CV - vezi cum il intorci sa la placa. Eventual Job Description de la locurile de munca.

- diplome - de meseriile care le plac chit ca o sa faci o alta meserie.

- Titluri de proprietate/ conturi sa arati ca ai bani chit ca nu ii vei folosi pe aia.

- engleza/ franceza stiuta rezonabil.

- cazier, certificat de nastere, pasaport - nu stiu exact cind le cer. Cazierul poate si inainte si dupa interviu ca e valabil 6 luni. Daca ai stat in mai multe tari - cazierul din toate tarile.

Interviul va fi cam de 40 de minute si nu trebuie sa te declari voluntar in a da informatii. Raspunzi la ce te intreaba. Fii pozitiv si motivatia ta este ca vrei sa traiesti in Canada. Poti sa te entuziasmezi de multi-culturalism dar nu despre faptul ca fiind mai multi emigranti iti vei gasi locul mai usor. Sper ca ai prins nuanta. Perspectiva de invingator.

Site-urile guvernamentale iti vor spune destule despre cum sa emigrezi.

Odata ajuns aici vei gasi suport in invatarea limbii si toate chestiile de baza pentru gasit o slujba. O slujba NU SLUJBA. Programele sunt pentru cei care sunt intr-adevar abia veniti din tara lor si au nevoie sa vorbeasca o engleza buna/ franceza, sa stie sa lucreze cu un calculator, sa se poarte la birou etc.... Daca ai mai lucrat in vest tot sunt de folos aceste programe dar ai mai putin de invatat din ele pentru ca deja ai experienta de lucrat in Vest. Totusi merita incercate ca fiecare si le stie pe ale lui.

Scoala pentru copil (daca mergi la scoala publica) nu o vei plati si nici asistenta medicala de baza. (ceea ce e foarte bine desi cind vei lucra te vei plinge de taxe prea mari, cele mai mari din grupul G7 dupa unele articole de presa).

Bafta si keep us posted.

(sper ca ti-am raspuns la ceva intrebari)
raspuns pentru domnul Daniel Racovitzan - de ema word la: 18/03/2004 03:58:19
(la: Florin Iaru: "In 1989 s-a terminat cu optzecismul")
Stimate domn,
Iata cum, intr-adevar, scotind noi sabiile sa ne duelam putin (cu conditia sa urmeze bataia cu frisca, de acord?), am ajuns la doua observatii pe care doresc sa vi le fac:
- pentru informarea domniei voastre, optzecismul nu a insemnat numai post-modernism in literatura, ci cel putin trei curente foarte particulare.
- tinerii de azi, dar sa fie tineri cu adevarat, nu doar nume noi in literatura(din cei care au facut debut dupa 1990 la virsta juna de ...50 de ani), nu mai scriu nici post-modernist, nici textualist, nici in registrele auxiliare optzecismului
Ceea ce domniei voastre vi se pare de nesuportat ("sa nu mai lungim pelteaua post-moderna") , ca si cum noi am avea puterea de a schimba peste noapte decorul cultural, se dovedeste, prin urmare, o falsa problema. (Dar, daca insistati pe tema necesitatii unor povesti "cu cintec" novator, intrati , bunaoara, pe site/ul revistei Tiuk!-prin motorul de cautare Google- si sa vedeti acolo lovitura data ...optzecismului! Asta ca sa aflati ca , poate fara stirea domniei voastre, lucrurile s/au miscat binisor si demultisor. Dar nu v-a atins inca zvonul). Iar faptul ca textele literare si productele mass/media, montarile scenice la teatru si asa numitele show/uri cu "artisti" va atrag atentia prin filonul post-modern inca atit de puternic este numai un firesc "parfum" cu care societatea in ansamblu(aflata in plin avint al tipului post-modern de civilizatie la noi, in timp ce in State sau in Occident el a fost demult depasit) participa la viata culturala a lumii romanesti. Iar realitatea, asta este: noi ne aflam acum, ca societate in ansamblu, in plin avint al post-modernitatii, pentru ca venim dintr-o istorie, venim cu niste particularitati, venim in viata internationala cu forcepsul, si am pomenit doar citeva aspecte conjuncturale.
Da, in alte parti, post-modernsimul este o palida amintire de la jumatatea secolului trecut.
Punct.
(Frisca, acum...)

Un strop de mine - de amoore la: 21/03/2004 12:01:58
(la: Cele mai frumoase poezii)
Sa lasi...

Oamenilor sa nu le dai iubiri cu miinile curate
Sa nu le spui
Ca undeva e lumea ta
De lacrima albastra.

Sa nu-i lasi nicidata
Sa te calce,sa te stiveasca
In noroiul aripilor arse.

Sa nu-ti faci vise
Cu oameni fericiti.
Sa nu te-mbeti cu clipe
Ce demult s-au stins.


Si cind cuvintele-ti vor fi straine
Si-n tine zborul s-ar opri
Cind stii ca nu mai ai
De indurat o vina

Sa lasi un om sa-ti spuna
Ce a gresit


**********************************

Transcendenta

Era un timp
Pe care l-am iubit...
Dar am cazut!
Caci toamna mea
Venea intotdeauna dimineata.
Am incercat sa ma opresc
Undeva intre cer si pamint

Dar universul meu trecuse
Demult intr-o
Alta galaxie.

Ochiul,
care privise mut lumina
A gasit modalitatea
De a-se exprima

Cuvint despre Dumnezue
Soptit in durere.

"Desteapta-te Romane" versu - de Ingrid la: 09/04/2004 00:39:19
(la: Imnul national)
"Desteapta-te Romane"
versurile lui Andrei Mureşanu (1816-1863) si muzica lui Anton Pann (1796-1854).

Desteapta-te romane, din somnul cel de moarte
In care te-adancira barbarii de tirani
Acum ori nicioadata croieste-ti alta soarta
La care sa se-nchine si cruzii tai dusmani.


Acum ori niciodata sa aratam in lume
Ca-n aste maini mai curge un sange de roman
Si ca-n a noastre piepturi pastram cu fala-un nume
Triumfator in lupte, un nume de Traian.


Inalta-ti a ta frunte si cata-n jur de tine,
Cum stau ca brazii-n munte, voinici sute de mii
Un glas ei mai asteapta si sar ca lupu-n stane,
Batrani, barbati, juni, tineri din munti si din campii !


Priviti, marete umbre : Mihai, Stefan, Corvine
Romana natiune, ai vostri stranepoti
Cu bratele-narmate, cu focul nostru-n vine,
Viata-n libertate, ori moarte striga toti.


Pe voi va nimicira a pizmei rautate,
Si oarba nemurire la Milcov si Carpati !
Dar noi patrunsi la suflet de sfanta libertate,
Juram ca vom da mana sa fim pururea frati !
O mama vaduvita, de la Mihai cel Mare,
Pretinde de la fiu-si azi mana de-ajutor !
Si blastamata cu lacrimi in ochi pe orisicare
In astfel de pericol s-ar face vanzator.


De fulgere sa piara, de trasnet si pucioasa
Oricare s-ar retrage din gloriosul loc,
Cand patria sau mama cu inima duioasa,
Va cere sa trecem prin sabie si foc !


N-ajunse despotismul cu-ntreaga lui orbie,
Al carui jug din seculi ca vitele-l purtam ,
Acum se-ncearca cruzii in oarba lor trufie,
Sa ne rapeasca limba, dar morti numai o dam.


Romani din patru unghiuri, acum ori niciodata,
Uniti-va in cuget, unitiva-n simtiri !
Strigati in lumea larga ca Dunarea-i furata
Prin intriga si sila, viclene uneltiri !


Preoti cu crucea-n frunte, caci oastea e crestina
Deviza-i libertate si scopul ei prea sfant;
Murim mai bine-n lupta, cu glorie deplina
Decat sa fim sclavi iarasi in vechiul nost'pamant.

kitsch-ul agreabil - de Daniel Racovitan la: 22/06/2004 11:02:12
(la: Cum ati defini kitsch-ul?)
"care se adreseaza partilor cele mai superficiale ale spiritului, si, pe deasupra, provoaca durere de cap."

Dar ce ne facem cu asa-zis-ul kitsch agreabil? Kitsch-ul escapist par examplu. Asta nu da durere de cap :)

Exemplu de kitsch agreabil: romantzele anilor 30-40, intinse ca niste peltele, reproduse la indigo, dulcegi (siropoase ca o rapire din serai, sau ca tablourile cu lebede plutind pe un lac in care face baie un card de june seminude, alaturi de un pavilion cu coloane grecesti, din care le privesc sagalnic doi juni imbracati ca Othello, in timp ce canta serenade la mandolina). Sunt placute? Sunt. Sunt kitsch? Yep.

Vremea si Marketul pt. Horia D - de LMC la: 24/06/2004 21:22:26
(la: Cum sa devii un liberal de nota 10!)
Ah, lacul!!! Ce pofta am acum de apa si soare. Too bad I have to work. Got to pay those taxes, you know. Se pare totusi ca marketul merge destul de bine, economia este in plina putere. Sugestiile mele, American Funds. It's the best fund company, having 64% of its equity and bond funds raking in the top quartile of their Morningstar peer groups over the past five years. Last year, just as an example, the American Funds New Perspective Fund Cl A (ANWPX) had a 36.76% return. Daca vrei mai multe informatii dute la www.americanfunds.com. Below I am quoting an interesting commentary:
_______
There are three reasons why I am bullish on the stock market. First, the economy is growing rapidly. Second, corporate profits are also rising rapidly. Third, George W. Bush is the pro-growth candidate standing firm with pro-investor tax cuts. He is going to win.

The most accurate gauge of recent election results going back to 1988 is the Iowa Electronic Presidential Winner-Take-All Market. It has a better track record than the polls. The collective wisdom of ordinary people is smarter than the elite polling experts, according James Surowiecki’s “The Wisdom of Crowds.” He specifically points to the Iowa market trading system as a superior election forecaster than the polls.
What’s it telling us now? The Bush contract is trading at 54 cents on the dollar, while the Kerry contract is exchanging hands at 47 cents. Since trading began on June 1, Bush has steadily held this lead. There you have it. The market speaks.

de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

1 a A person of Hebrew descent; one whose religion is Judaism; an Israelite.
Orig. a Hebrew of the kingdom of Judah, as opposed to those of the ten tribes
of Israel; later, any Israelite who adhered to the worship of Jehovah as
conducted at Jerusalem. Applied comparatively rarely to the ancient nation
before the exile (cf. HEBREW sb. 1), but the commonest name for contemporary
or modern representatives of this group, now spread throughout the world. The
word `Jew' is also applied to groups, e.g. the Falashas in Ethiopia, not
ethnically related to persons of the main European groups, the Ashkenazim and
the Sephardim.

1974 J. R. BAKER Race xiv. 234 From the traditional religious point of view, a
Jew was a person born of a Jewish mother, but this formula suffers from the
defect that the defined word is included in adjectival form in the definition.
The same flaw occurs in part of the new definition enacted by the Israeli
Parliament in..1970, according to which a person is a Jew if he or she is the
offspring of a Jewish mother or has been converted to the Jewish faith by the
Orthodox Rabbinate or by the Rabbis of the Jewish Reform Movement or by the
Rabbis of the Jewish Conservative Movement.

2 a transf. and offensive. As a name of opprobrium: spec. applied to a
grasping or extortionate person (whether Jewish or not) who drives hard
bargains.
In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.

Cenzura e constitutionala fratilor - de Dinu Lazar la: 02/07/2004 07:28:24
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Cea mai tare chestie a acestor zile este ca cenzura - care este - a devenit constitutionala. La americani, ca la noi e de mult. As zice astfel chiar: cu cit e libertatea mai trimbitzata cu atit e cenzura mai mare.

New York Upholds Ban On Cameras In The Courtroom

The Appellate Division, Supreme Court, First Judicial Department of New York has voted 5-0 in favor of upholding a ban on cameras in New York courtrooms, saying the ban is Constitutional. The ruling, made June 22, was the result of an appeal by Courtroom Television Network (Court TV) in its suit against the State of New York. Court TV brought the original lower court case on September 5, 2001 hoping to have the ban overturned by seeking a declaration that Section 52 of the state's civil rights law was unconstitutional under both the New York and U.S. Constitutions.

The National Press Photographers Association, through its lawyers, submitted an Amicus Curiae (friend of the court) brief on March 19 supporting Court TV's challenge and joining in the call to overturn the ban.

Nelamurire - de Petre Buzoianu la: 20/08/2004 05:25:23
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Dragos ce se vede in fotografia aia nu are nici o legatura cu ce se intimpla in realitate. Intr-adevar "fotograful" este prea aproape, ca sa poata sa focuseze la distanta aia ar trebui sa aiba un obiectiv de 35mm care ne este exact ceea ce trebuie pentru portrete, ( cu toate ca am vazut portrete senzationale facute chiar cu 28 de mm ) . Sigur insa nu in cazul de fata. Aparatul pare a fi un Nikon ieftin cu un obiectiv de 50mm. Intrebarea mea este, stroburile alea cum se declaseaza ? caci nu vad nici un PS cord care sa lege aparatul de stroburi, nici vre un transimtator radio sau infrared montat pe aparat, sau macar vre un mic flash care sa activeze un slave pentru stroburi. Aparatul medium format care zace alaturi pare a fi un Mamya 645 cu un obiectiv de 80mm si care acum vre-o 20 de ani se folosea la nunti .
Dupa cum e pusa lumina, juna se umbreste pe ea insasi iar maestrul fotograf umbreste juna.
Ar mai fi de spus dar ma opresc aici ca sa nu supar lumea .

panou assos - de stanescoo la: 20/08/2004 12:26:54
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
...dupa cum indreapta aparatul spre ea din pozitia aceea, nici nu vreau sa ma gandesc ce/cum/cat va incadra/taia de fapt... si e la bustul gol dragul de el, hahaaa...

and then again, intrebarile acestea ni le punem noi, si poate inca 1-2% din cei care isi arunca ochii pe panou. mi-e imi pare grotesc, dar eu nici nu fumez, deci nu sunt target-ul lor :)

pe astia-i avem, cu astia defilam...stiti cumva daca poza e facuta in/pentru romania?


cu bine,
lucian
