Padlocks of love

According to Wikipedia:

Parapets screened the Pont des Arts is now support for multiple padlocks hung by couples: these are locks of love . These locks typically include entries in the marker (even inscriptions) mentioning the names or initials of two lovers, the date on which the lock was hooked, and possibly a short message.

This practice has appeared on the Pont des Arts in 2008 5 , and has since expanded to the Passerelle Leopold-Sedar-Senghor and the Pont of the Archdiocese . The origin of this practice is rather vague: it appeared in Eastern Europe in the 1980s and 1990s, then spread to Western Europe in the 2000s.

Locks the Pont des Arts are regularly unexplained disappearances akin to vandalism. Between 10 and 12 May 2010, almost all padlocks have been removed during the night without the public authorities are responsible for this suppression. While…

Toothsome Is Crying Her Heart Out For Syria

Free Syria

Help Free Syria!

***

***

One of my colleagues who happens to be my best friend here is a Syrian.  I went to visit his Dental Office to give him some sweet and he broke me the news that his University was bombed by their Government Military and around 100 students died.  Click here.

I asked about how his parents are coping with their day to day living, because the last time I talked to his mom was like 3 years ago and Syria was still peaceful back then.

He said that they already lost their family house and everything in there were all stolen and now his parents moved to his house.  His parents and siblings are all there.  He tried to get them and bring them here but unfortunately the  Government here had stopped issuing visa for the Syrian people.  He said they do not have electricity, plus it’s winter too, so his father now of 85 years old is sick.  I asked him if there is a way for them to come out from Syria and go to nearby countries.  He said there is no more airport in Syria and if they will go to Turkey, the refugee camp there is not so accommodating and people are mistreated.  So his parents decided to just stay in his house to live and if they die or got bombed or killed then they die.  They just leave it to God’s mercy.

I just found myself in tears.  How there are people who wish to harm other people only to gain power.

My heart goes to Syrian people and I hope and pray that they will soon be free.

I visited Syria last 2005, and it was really a beautiful country.  Photos below were taken in Aleppo Citadel.  October, 2005.

D D D

And today their own people destroyed their own country.  It’s really sad 😦

Is there anything we can do about it?  Well personally I do not really know how but the only thing I know for sure that I could do is to offer my prayers for them.

I would like to end this post with this country song by Ricky Skaggs. Enjoy!
As we all know Toothsome, she always like us to end our days with a smile 🙂

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 130,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

How A Thief Opens Your Suitcase!

How A Thief Opens Your Suitcase!

Well,  here it is..  THIS is the way a bag is opened at the airport without your knowledge.  Many people have had things missing from their baggage, even when they received them at the arrival port UNOPENED  and UNTOUCHED!!! !!!  

And this is why you should never put anything of value in your checked baggage!   

How did the thief (at the airport) do it?  IT’S  EASY!  

Now think of this in your hotel room!  How many of us lock things in our suitcases when we leave the room?  Just watch this video once and you’ll never do it again.

Miniature Great Wall Of China.  One of the famous attractions that you would see when you visit Shenzhen, China…  It’s an amazing work of art and architecture, isn’t it? I took this tour 17 years ago.  I bet there are more to see nowadays since Shenzhen is now considered one of the fastest-growing cities in the world.  It is one of the most populous and richest cities in China. These photos were taken sometime November or December 1995 and back then they accepted all currencies so you wouldn’t have to worry for any money changer. Though, I don’t know if they still do that until now.  By the way Shenzhen is situated in Guangdong, China on the Hong Kong border about 40km.  So when you travel to Hong Kong, take a side trip to Shenzhen.(that’s what I did… hehehe)  It is a great place to start your discovery…
