Making excuses... :)

Witajcie po małej przerwie wakacyjnej! Troszkę się działo, dlatego nastała cisza na blogu przez kilka dni... ale jestem BACK i wracam z zapałem do angielskiego blogowania!

Żeby nie było, że bez słowa znikam i się pojawiam... to się nieco wytłumaczę... Otóż spędziłem piękne wakacje w Bośni i Hercegowinie, a dokładniej w Medjugorje oraz w Chorwacji, a dokłądniej w uroczej miejscowości Baska Voda na Makarskiej Riwierze, nad Adriatykiem u podnórza masywu Biokovo!

Piękny, urokliwy krajobraz... leżysz w upalnym słońcu na wodzie i podziwiasz piękne góry... Coś niesamowitego! To był mój drugi pobyt na tych terenach z rodziną, a mój samodzielny trzeci...



If you're looking for a holiday destination... I am telling you - there's no better place than Croatia with its climate, landscape, the Adriatic and hospitable people!

A po powrocie z wakacji, okazało się, że mam szybki wyjazd do małej miejscowości Bridge pod Canterbury w UK w charakterze tłumacza... więc znów nie było czasu, żeby coś napisać...



Ale, tak jak wspomniałem... wracam do pisania! Także zapraszam do śledzenia, czytania i komentowania! :)

Have you ever owned a budgie?


Pełna nazwa to właściwie...


BUDGERIGAR

Czyli zwyczajnie papużka falista po polsku :) Częściej zwana jednak 'budgie'...

My wife used to have some budgies. I think her grandpa had found them somewhere flying around and she decided to keep them at home them. I remember those crazy birds destroying walls in her room and being very loud.

Now... my son has parrots... They are not budgies though... They're called cockatiels (nimfy)... I guess they are much nicer than budgies although they sound as terrible as all other parrots, I'm afraid... Below is the picture of the two weiros (they're also called this). The grey one is a girl called Konstasia and the yellow one is a boy called Edward... :)


Ih has to be said that it's Konstasia who calls the shots in her house and Edward is a henpecked husband, if I can use this expression here...

They're fun to have although they can't sing at all, they can't speak, they wake us up at 5 in the morning, they squawk all the time, they are very picky about food and therefore expensive to maintain... But since they've been with us for some time, they're loved and cherished and accepted... even by myself... :)

My questions to you:
Do you have pets? Have you ever had parrots at home? Would you like to have a budgie or a cockatiel? Why?

Do you think social life has moved to the Internet?


There is a discussion in the press on how social life has moved to the Internet. I would like to voice my opinion on this issue, which seems quite important these days. I would like to be allowed to take part in the debate by sharing good and bad points that I notice here.

First, I would like to focus on the good sides of this phenomenon. Having social life online is for many reasons attractive. Not only can you make more friends than in real life, but you can also increase the number of friends in a short time. What is more, the Internet give you the opportunity of creating your social network with people you want. There are many various portals or just websites which you can visit because they match your interests. A friend of mine once said that if he was to choose between online and real-life friend making, he would definitely choose the Internet option.

On the other hand, when it comes to some of the drawbacks I have thought about, it must be said that even if you try to keep your relations only by means of the Internet, you are very likely to find out soon that online relations will not give you what you really need. And what do all people need? Well, we all need to co-exist in real life with others to build some genuine relationship. Online relations are simply not enough for sooner or later you will need to see that person, touch that person, look into that person’s eye.

To recapitulate, I wish to say that whereas having relations with other online is quite an attractive way of social life it will result in very superficial and rather fragile relations if it is to be kept only via the Internet. My strong belief is that people need to be together in a range of life situations if relations are to last.
