Discover The Photographs Of Rats Artists By Ellen van Deellen

Dutch photographer and artist Ellen van Deelen has created series of photos: with musicians rats, and scenes of lives of our daily life.
As the main characters were his pets Moppy, Witje and Rosie.
One day, Ellen saw a mini guitar playing in the shop window, and immediately she presented the picture of her two students as musicians. Not without reason the rats in their mental development are considered to be one of the closest to humans:
Moppy, Witje and Rosie, under the direction of the hostess, quickly learned to take tools and pose in front of the camera. It should be noted that Ellen herself loves music, likes to play violin and guitar. In the photos, the rats appear in images so beautiful and very touching.
“They are very smart and respond to their names – said…

The palace in the small town

Whisper

There is a small town called Resen, located in the southwestern part of Macedonia near Prespa Lake in the Prespa region. Prespa region is known as an agricultural region producing apples. It’s one of those places in the country that are off the tourist radar, however, there is one intriguing building that attracts the tourists.

This building outstands from the other buildings in the town by its size and its style. That’s why there are stories connected with this building, especially for the reason why it was built. Here are some of the stories:

Once upon a time, there were two friends who spend their childhood together, they were even calling themselves “brothers”. One of them decided to leave the country and live in Paris, France. After a couple of years, he sent a postcard to his brother and wrote:

78th National Airborne Day

Pacific Paratrooper

“Airborne All The Way”

Author Unknown

These men with silver wings

Troopers from the sky above

In whom devotion springs

What spirit so unites them?

In brotherhood they say

Their answer loud and clear.

“Airborne All the Way.”

These are the men of danger

As in open door they stand

With static line above them

And ripcord in their hand.

While earthbound they are falling

A silent prayer they say

“Lord be with us forever,

Airborne All the Way.”

Saint Mike

One day they’ll make their final jump

Saint Mike will tap them out

The good Lord will be waiting

He knows what they’re about

And answering in unison

He’ll hear the troopers say

“We’re glad to be aboard, Sir,

Airborne All the Way!”

Salute to the Women in Uniform

Pacific Paratrooper

American women played important roles during World War II, both at home and in uniform. Not only did they give their sons, husbands, fathers, and brothers to the war effort, they gave their time, energy, and some even gave their lives.

The utilization of women in an organization such as the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) offered a “golden opportunity” to solve manpower shortages. So recognizable was the opportunity that Chief of Staff General George C. Marshall himself told the War Department in November 1941, “I want a women’s corps right away, and I don’t want any excuses!” Urgent wartime demands necessitated the use of all able, willing citizens, regardless of gender. In recruiting women, the Army assured them that they would be doing “unusual and exciting work” and that their service “in making available technically trained men for combat service will be of great value in winning the war.”

Do you know who I am?

dreadmill

No,not in the obnoxious, person standing in the queue kinda way but as in I could do with some help here.

Since finishing up my job 3 months ago I’ve come to realise how much I defined myself by what I did. I had a sort of interesting job where I met interesting people but the payoff was headmelt so I got out of there. It was only in the past few weeks when someone asked me “ What do you do? that I started  to get stuck. I went into some long winded blah about what I HAD done and I’m pretty sure they regretted asking me.

Then more recently after signing up for a triathlon I realised my running career is most likely over due to a long term back problem. UM convinced me that I could still train for it by swimming and biking. But yesterday I…

Dr Carol Saunders – God Send

Freed by ASD

      It was shortly after midnight on June 18th, 1993 during the historical flooding, when first I heard her voice. I had jolted her from a sleep with a call requesting help for my ailing daughter and yet she sounded alert, friendly and decisive. Her voice was soft yet a little bit gravely without sounding gruff. She articulated well and used only words that I could understand in my current state of unease regarding my daughter’s health. She had a calming effect as I listened to her, as if she knew just what to say and ask.  I remember being amazed at her generosity, she didn’t know who we were, as we had recently moved to the small town of Newton; and as I told her we did not have any health insurance, she still continued to ask questions regarding my daughter’s condition.  Moments after speaking to…
