Good morning kritters.

@ Octo, I had a pet rock, does that make me a rock lover?

@ Beyond, that first sculpture is crazy weird...where is it and what does it represent?

Not too bad compared to others' problems, mainly recovering from Vitamin B12 deficiency and trying to exercise to get my energy levels up, but the hot weather drags me down. We went from brutal winter, to cool spring, to the last few days of 29 deg. C temps...no easing in. However, we will now have a few days of tolerable warm weather, then back up to hot weather. It's the humidity that's the problem as it was measured at 34 deg. C the other day.

I see! That's where our summer went 13.gif It's been cold and miserable here for a few days. Good luck with the exercising, but lord knows hot and humid isn't very healthy weather to hop around in very much. whew.gif

Yes, my hopping and dancing will have to be minimized, so stretching, squatting, pilates and walking is the ticket.

The beautiful children dancing statue was photographed in Stalingrad during the horrible battle for that city > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barmaley_Fountain

The third image i posted above the b/w cemetery image is easily one of the most hauntingly gorgeous photographs I've ever seen and i've seen many tens of thousands at least...

Watch the opening to this music video I Wanna Rock its absolutely hilarious (*-*)

Just what I was looking for, thanks.

The allegory of the monument was derived from the eponymous fairy tale poem written in 1925 by Korney Chukovsky. Excerpt (literal translation):


Quote:Little children! / For nothing in the world / Do not go to Africa / Do not go to Africa for a walk! // In Africa, there are sharks, / In Africa, there are gorillas, / In Africa, there are large / Evil crocodiles / They will bite you, / Beat and offend you - // Don't you go, children, / to Africa for a walk / In Africa, there is a robber, / In Africa, there is a villain, / In Africa, there is terrible / Bahr-mah-ley! // He runs about Africa / And eats children - / Nasty, vicious, greedy Barmaley!

While being burned in fire by Barmaley, Doctor Aybolit asked a crocodile brought in by a gorilla to swallow up Barmaley, so that he could no longer harm little children. The crocodile did so, but Barmaley was later released after promising to change. Barmaley became nicer and proclaimed he would be kinder, that he now loved little children and would become a friendly baker.

How weird is that? damned.gif

That teacher needs a longer vacation than just the Summer. Ha ha.
