Yesterday the World became more Orange

" Orange is the happiest color"

Frank Sinatra, American Actor and Singer, 1915-1998.

It was interesting to find out that Orange cell phone company, a brand of France Telecom is extending it's network to the East. Yep, a GSM company from Republic of Moldova-Voxtel/ Tempo - became Orange Molodova. That's quite a move. The concession is valid for 15 years and the fee started "only" from 8 mln $. For more details on cell phone stuff in Republic of Moldova check and

Not much competition. No discounts. More money...for Orange.

A Romanian Hero

The tragedy at Virginia Tech was a shock for everyone. We all are trying to find an explanation to why happened what happened.
One particular fact impressed me a lot. I am talking about the way that Romanian professor Liviu Ribrescu acted. If you watched the news you probably know that he blocked the door of the classroom so his students could escape. What's that big of a deal?
I thought how would I act in a similar situation?
Well, during good times maybe we all are heroes but how would You act in a crisis situation? Then is no time to think. Then is time for your real character to show.
I never met Prof.Librescu but he earned my respect. He thought of others before himself, his courage was stronger then his fear, his life and his death was an example to follow...

The Golden Fish

"Give me a fish and I eat for a day. Teach me to fish and I eat for a lifetime"

Chines Proverb

This is what I thought until recently when in one early morning, I found a bucket at my door. Looked inside and there it was ...the Golden Fish! He told me that Etherfast sent him. Then he told me that he will fulfill 3 of my wishes.

So, here we go:

1. Everlasting good health

2. Profitable great business

3. My list was not finished ( more free time and lots of money so I can travel around the World etc) so I asked for ...3 more wishes...

Recently I read that a restaurant owner from South of China paid 75,000 $ for a giant Golden fish. Click here for the story.

So, I was going to keep the one I got but decided to send it to Sor1n1ka, Manafu* , Radu Ionescu and Andressa.

Best 3 wishes to You!

Travelling? You've got a FREE ride

"The World is a book and those who do not travel read only a page."
Saint Augustine, Ancient Roman Christian Theologian and Bishop.

I love travelling and know very well that days when the hitchhikers could get a FREE ride are gone forever. Well, surfing the web I found an interesting site which I tells me I am wrong.
Apparently there are people who would post info if they have any FREE seats in their vehicle, if they are looking for company and what is their destination while travelling in Europe. Check it here So, if your are travelling all over Europe, going to Rome, Paris, Munich or anywhere else and are looking to save some money it might be a good resource.
"Bone Voyage" Ladies and Gentlemen!

Easter time

"Christianity begins where religion ends...with the resurrection"

Herbert Booth Smith

Every year we have lots of celebrations. All kind of history behind them, different backgrounds and reasons. Easter and Christmas are the main two for Christianity. They are different but the one common note in both of them is JOY.

Why do you celebrate Easter? Does Christ's resurrection brings You joy or it's only about tradition?

We live because He died for us. Rejoice!

Games. Games. Games.

" You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else" Albert Einstein.

It looks like everybody talks about games. I wonder why Andressa, Manafu* , Radu Ionescu and some other bloggers talk about games. Maybe because life is a game. Maybe because games make our life exciting...

Well, I spend yesterday evening :) Basically I went to an event of launching new game in Romania. It was in La Rocca. The game has been for "centuries" in Germany but only few weeks ago it came here, being translated and made especially for Romanian players. For more info click here No, it's not a computer game. It's a table game, where you play with real people in the real world. Never played it before but I greatly enjoyed it. It's a strategy game, a development game and it's easier to play then it may look.

I love games. Why? Real games bring people together, games help you to know other people and the way they think and act. Games are just fun and exciting. Just like life.
