Pentru că nu m-a făcut mama, dar am devenit pe parcurs, stelistă am avut o plăcere deosebită în a aduna bancurile făcute pe seama meciului de aseară (Steaua vs Dinamo, tur, Cupa României), bancuri pe care o să le împart și cu voi. Here we go:
Să sune cineva la clubul F.C. Dinamo să îi anunțe că a început meciul!
1. Care-i diferența dintre un taxi și Dinamo? Taxi-ul ia maxim 4!
2. Învățătoarea la școală:
– Bălgradean, numără până la cinci!
Bălgrădean: Latovlevici, Varela, Chipciu, Tănase, Keseru.
3. Cum se salută dinamoviștii?
R: Give me five!
4. Care este numele real a lui Bălgrădean?
5. Stoican a vrut să-şi dea demisia după meciul cu Steaua şi să plece în vacanţă la… Cincinnati.
6. Guma preferata a dinamovistilor este FIVE!
Șiiiiii…piesa preferată a dinamoviștilor:

– Dar ce crezi tu băiete, că o să stai cu fiica mea o noapte întreagă?
* Un om avea un papagal care înjura. Într-o zi, exasperat, îl închide în cămară. Nimic, numai porcării ieșeau din gură papagalului. Îl închide în șifonier. Și mai rău. Îl închide în congelator și după un minut pasărea tace. Deschide omul ușa congelatorului, iar papagalul zice:
– Vă rog să acceptați scuzele mele pentru neplăcerile provocate. Vă asigur însă că nu se vor mai repeta!
Omul, să cadă pe spate, nu-i venea să creadă. La care papagalul:

Several years back, actually longer then I wish to dwell on, I took photograph’s of a horse logging operation as my work entailed doing photography and video. The horse logging was used to demonstrate low impact on the forest as they selectively logged trees and the horses were believed to have less impact on the forest environment compared to heavy equipment.
When did artists first develop the skill to recreate in portraiture a reasonable likeness of the person being drawn or painted? I don’t know? Nor does anyone else for that matter. But what I do know is that the ability to make an image identifiable was slow in coming and varied from culture to culture. In fact, there were periods when portraits were basically true to nature and then something went wrong and the skill level declined into mere nothingness. Not even into caricatures and it took centuries before that skill could be reapplied. But I’ll get back to that later. For now I want to start off this post with a two-pronged approach: some general principles and thoughts about how we know what we are seeing is what we are seeing followed by a discussion of the development of portraiture in Japanese woodblock prints.
For the infant this is “…a big blooming…

I will confess, I used to be a hater of all designer fashion labels – most properly due to the limited chance of me being able to purchase a Chanel piece; but looking at the picture you can properly tell I am now been officially converted – yet still no sign of a high end addition to my wardrobe…
Chanel is one iconic label that has been involved in the debates discussing whether fashion is for art, culture or commercial means, but when THE LITTLE BLACK JACKET, the global exhibition comes to exhibit in Singapore at The ArtScience Museum….where does someone’s argue lie with?
This saturation of Chanel was not only in this exhibition…from Orchid Road to Marina Bay Sands, you knew Chanel was there, but it fitted in accordingly with the ambiance that Singapore creates through other cultural mediums.
Being able to take photos in the exhibition was SUCH…

Morning Thought: The church is meant to be the most amazing place on earth, the light of the world. But we can only be a light as we focus on The Light, Jesus Christ. When we give Jesus the preeminence, people from every culture and tongue are drawn to his light. Thank you Father that you’re doing this in our day. Más Señor! “Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the hip. Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come.” (Isaiah 60:3-5 NIV)
Expect nothing. Live frugally
become a stranger
To need of pity
Or, if compassion be freely
Take only enough
Stop short of urge to plead
Then purge away the need.
Wish for nothing larger
Than your own small heart
Or greater than a star;
Tame wild disappointment
With caress unmoved and cold
Make of it a parka
For your soul.
Discover the reason why
So tiny human midget
Exists at all
So scared unwise
But expect nothing. Live frugally
U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has confirmed America’s commitment to defend Japan, and demanded that China respect the territorial claims of other nations in the region.
Hagel made the remarks in a press conference in Tokyo on Sunday, ahead of his first trip to China as America’s defense chief. He urged China to embrace the responsibility that comes with being a global power, and rejected attempts by powerful nations to bully their smaller neighbors.
“With this power comes new and wider responsibilities as to how you use that power, how you employ that military power,” said Hagel, as he stood side by side with Japanese Minister of Defense Itsunori Onodera.
“I want to talk with the Chinese about all of that,” Hagel said, “particularly transparency — a key dimension of relationships. Transparency, intentions, what governments are doing, why.”
The U.S.’s top defense official also took time to criticize…

Gelati (Georgian: გელათის მონასტერი) is a monastic complex near the city of Kutaisi in the Imereti region of western Georgia. The Monastery is among the most important cultural landmarks of Georgia and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The complex contains the Church of the Virgin founded by David the Builder (Georgian: დავით აღმაშენებელი) in 1106, and the 13th-century churches of St George and St Nicholas.
The frescos of the Church of the Virgin are considered to be unique, as they display the entire history and most important stages of Georgian ecclesiastic mural paintings. A fresco is a painting done rapidly in water color on wet plaster on a wall or ceiling, so that the colors penetrate the plaster and become fixed as it dries.
Unfortunately, this type of painting is susceptible to climate fluctuation…

DUBLIN (CBS SF) — Police have released photos of a man who robbed a Dublin gas station on Wednesday night, a police lieutenant said.
Officers responded to a report of a robbery in progress at a Shell gas station at 5933 Dougherty Road at about 11:45 p.m., Lt. Herb Walters said.
The suspect entered the gas station with a black bag, baseball bat and red plastic gas can, he said.
He ordered the clerk to put all the money in the bag or he would burn the gas station down, Walters said.
The suspect fled the scene with an unknown amount of money, police said.
Police had previously reported that the car was a Nissan Altima but on Monday updated the description to a Ford Fusion.
Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to call police Detective Sgt. Rafael Alvarez at (925) 833-6682.

In the idiosyncratic world of European startups, being bootstrapped can be both a badge of honour and a mark against your name, especially when you have a heavy-weight Silicon Valley competitor backed to the tune of $80.35 million.
Enter Hot Hotels, the Madrid-based last-minute hotel booking app and European competitor to HotelTonight, which is announcing its raised $1 million from Axon Partners Group — its first external investment since being founded in January 2012.
Officially, the new funds are pegged for expansion into Latin America, for which Axon brings expertise, and to further consolidate what it claims is a leadership position in Europe. However, I’m also hearing that Hot Hotels has a platform play in development, something that would see the company expand beyond just being a consumer app, to also helping other travel apps get in on the last-minute hotel booking action. The move would be another…
