Luna Amara (Bitter Moon)

Against the fact that some of their ideas are quite erratic in my opinion I like the music.
Good voices, excellent verses, the band is really one of the most original in Romania.
The songs have quite strong political messages.

Shootings at Virginia Tech

I am deeply sory about the events atVirginia Tech. I have read the news in CNN.

I am sorry for the victims and for their families.

Still this incident raises some points on:
1. Individual liberty
2. Gun control
3. Psychological background of the shooters
and at last but not at least
4. American society (see "Borat" and "Bowling for Colombine")

Back to TM

I have arrived yesterday back in TM.
I have driven for 6 hours on the route Sighet - Baia Mare - Satu Mare - Oradea - Arad - Timisoara.
Although I haven't seen any accident on the road the way that Romanians are driving is frightening. Ruthless overtakes, insistent horning, light flashes, lot of police.
And the road was awful. My car - a humble Chevrolet Kalos - begun to have some sounds on the front right wheel.
This was as n a very bad version of "Need For Speed"

Ieromonahul Andrei (13.10.1919 - 30.03.2007)

After a life of prayer he died in the Christian way - praying and blessing all those that were near him. Tata Dan - as I used to call him - gave us an extraordinary lesson of faith and dignity.

Rest in peace!
