Never send to know for whom the bell tolls
“For Whom the Bell Tolls” is one of the best novels of American writer Ernest Hemingway, published in 1940. The title of the book is taken from the early poem of John Donne (1572 – 1631), an English poet and a cleric in the Church of England. “No man is an Iland, intire of it selfe; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine owne were; any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee”.

Everything is in your hands

Everything is in your hands

A parable, which you probably know – Everything is in your hands

Everything is in your hands, a parable, which you probably know. Disciples decided to test their teacher. They approached him hiding a butterfly in semi-closed hands and asked him if the creature is dead or alive. They agreed amongst themselves that if the teacher answers: “Dead”, the disciple will open hands and the butterfly will fly away alive, but if the teacher says “Alive” he will slightly squeeze his palms so that the butterfly will be dead… Wise teacher answered: “Everything is in your hands…” So we are always able to change our reality the way we want it. If you want to go green just go for it. If you want to make it Space of Love – just do it, everything is in your hands. Quote of Anatole France – “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

Gingerbread Terem that Sergey Kirillov built
First of all, “Terem” is the old Russian word for “house”. Simple Russian peasant, local blacksmith Sergey Ivanovich Kirillov built this wonderful house. Noteworthy, the house was twice on fire, but remained untouched. The fabulous house is 20 km from the small town Nevyansk in an old Russian village of Kunar (Sverdlovsk region). Any passerby can enter the house, as instead of a lock on the door and the gate is the button. You press – and, as if in a fairy tale, the door will be opened. Undoubtedly, wondering tourists will see a lot. The house of the local blacksmith Kirillov was recognized the best on the vast territory of Russia in 1999, and not in vain.

Five sisters – Elizaveta, Alexandra, Nadezhda, Tatiana and Varvara. Multiple human births

Multiple human births
About the Artamkins family talked a little more four years ago. All federal TV channels showed scenes of the family, which once had five beautiful daughters – Elizaveta, Alexandra, Nadezhda, Tatiana and Varvara. Russian doctors refused to carry this pregnancy. British doctors have helped to see the light to all five girls. The head of the family Dmitry Artamkin teaches math in high school. He says the doctors stated, “You know that your wife will die along with all the kids?’. At the Center of Protection of Mother and Child (paradoxical name) gathered a council, and these venerable professors predicted that pregnancy would last up to a maximum of twenty weeks. They put his wife in a deadlock with the statement: “We – the leading center, and we reject you, nowhere in the world, we have not heard, that was born bunch of fives and all would be well.” The support Dmitry and his pregnant wife had only in the Church. This once again reminds us that you can only rely on God and in their case on the British doctors.
