The Tales for Adults and Children: "Princess Mononoke"

Recently I’ve seen the anime “Princess Mononoke” by Hayao Miyazaki. This film is the masterpiece among similar anime. The main characters are the Prince Ashitaka and Princess Mononoke (her name stands for «vengeful spirit»). Princess Mononoke was brought up by Moro, the Lord of Wolves, because people left her in the forest as sacrifice for wolves.

The plot of this anime is very… Continue

is it essential to learn a second language?

now, i'm confused about whether it good or not learning a foreign language, even if i'm a learner now. In my opinion if people are not going to immigrate in a foreign country, they can not master the language very well. so it is just time-wasting in some sense for learning a second language. but some others will say it is a communication tools for study and job, yes, i agree with it. however, if people use the second language in their own country as a working tool, maybe it is hard to make a… Continue

Free bird

I'm a free bird

He said to me

I won't be caught

And put in cage

I want to be free

If I am jailed

my heart and mind

Are lost with me

I have my dream

So nice to feel

I'll make it real

I'd like to stay

Kept in your arms

To share your love

And taste its goods

Your lovely mood

To be kissed and hold

But I love to fly

To… Continue

A Word or two about Idioms

Hiya, everybody !

I recently contributed two websites with lots of information about Idioms, I hope you will find them useful.

I thought I would help you with a little information about Idioms.

First, a definition: a phrase or expression that is (usually) not taken literally. For example, "Don't let the cat out of the bag" means to not tell something one knows, to keep silent.

Second, a nice analogy: An idiom is a "word - package" with a… Continue

Polomi Siddique Because I'm a Sister of My Teenage Brother

Dealing with a teenage son or a daughter is probably the worst nightmare of every parent. Boys at that age are no less fragile than the girls are. And it’s the duty of the parents to make sure that they are not going astray while trying to disentangle the newly faced complications and emotions of life- ecstasy, envy, embarrassment, anger, love, sensation, agony, ambition and what not. Why these happen? I guess we all know but sometimes we wish… Continue

I went upon the pool to see perhaps the picture of own loneliness in the water .no water on the pool ,the fishes were telling that the trees aren't guilty at all,that was the hot noon in the summer.the bright son of the sun sat on the lip,and the eagle of sun came and took him to the air .
if you see GOD in the throb of the garden ,tell him that the fishes' pool is without water.
the wind was going to sycamore, and i was going to GOD .

0mcnf9dst7tbz Used Pasta Machine

Well, I made a batch of gnocci today in my $7.00 pasta machine. The gnocci are drying right now. I could have cooked them up immediately but had other things to do.

The pasta machine mixes and kneads the dough and then extrudes it through a die. It came with 24 dies to makes all sorts of shapes of pasta.

I used unbleached flour which gives the gnocci a different color-but it should taste fine. I will try a recipe next time that adds cheese. I will also have to tweek the… Continue

Unusual method of learning English

I want to tell you the story about a famous Russian programmer Kris Kaspersky (now he works in American company “McAfee” as a senior reverse engineer). I have read this story in a Russian journal “Hacker”, #139, 08.2010, p.082-087(www.xakep.ru).

Kaspersky tried to learn writing in a good English, but nobody agreed to publish his articles, because of his bad English! :-))) But the talented… Continue

0mcnf9dst7tbz Garage Sale-Yard Sale

Today on the way home from the store I saw a sign on a telephone pole with an arrow pointing to the right. It was directing motorists like me to a yard sale. On Fridays and over the weekend a lot of people will have these sales at their homes.

This is a good way to get rid of things around the house that aren't used any more like children's clothing, extra tools, furniture and other things that the householder doesn't want anymore.

Sometimes when people move they don't… Continue

A tryst with love...

The doorbell rang.I somersaulted out of my bed and rushed to the door.There I stood for 10 seconds staring.Then slowly I unlatched the bolt.

Its crazy how a guy in love can be restless and tantalizing at the same time. Nevertheless I jerked and pulled the door wide open, not before once running my hand through my hair.

There she stood, simple yet elegant as always. That cute child like smile boy ! It makes me go numb… Continue
