We've had the perfect holiday in Crete so far. Most of our friends back home advised us not to miss out a visit to Elafonisi beach. An almost 4 hour drive from Malia at Northeast side of the Crete island, all the way down to southwestern Elafonisi.
Although it is a long journey, the route we travelled on was scenic and beautiful, featuring breathtaking landscapes whilst passing through some peaceful villages with aged, traditional houses. They were literally coloured red, pink and white shades! We even saw a few wild goats enjoying some fresh grass in between the rocks!
First off, congratulations! Because if you're reading this, chances are you're human, or at least a dolphin with an above average intelligence. And that means you beat the odds by merely not being born an amoeba, or exist as a bit of space debris, or a hemorrhoid up my ass, or a mentally challenged dolphin. Considering the sheer amount of biological and abiological matter out there in the universe, what are the chances of any one of us actually being a human? It must be up there with winning the lottery 10 times in a row. We basically hit the jackpot big time.
Found them - the true cause of global warming
I don't think, for the most part, we express enough gratitude for not being a hemorrhoid up someone ass, but I suspect there's an evolutionary reason for this. Caveman who were too preoccupied contemplating why they weren't a mammoth probably didn'
I am trying to start a new Steemit community that will benefit active-duty military and veterans #veterans. After some input from Steemit Pros, I want to change the tag to simply #veterans. Please check out, support and RESTEEM my first two posts dedicated to this new community:
As a veteran myself, I have seen first-hand the sacrifices that these dedicated men and women endure for us. I served four years active-duty Air Force where I was a K-9 Military Police Officer.
My reason for starting this community is simple. I have a deep found respect and admiration for active-duty military and veterans and have always wanted to help this group. Steemit has given me the platform to do so. There are many active-duty military and veterans li
I've intended to contribute to the #steemitcampfire for a few weeks now. Life happens.
But @barrydutton doesn't forget to remind me! He is ruthless, lol. Actually, he's a really good person in my book. Life had caught up with me Steeming story posts, taking care of the children, and housework. I had not commented on his channel for a while and he took the time to come over to my channel to make sure I was doing ok. That was truly kind of him.
For the #steemitcampfire I wanted to tell a few comical stories from my pre-deployment and actual deployment to Iraq. I hope you enjoy.
FYI: The second video is a video I said I would try to find and I was able to find it(I can't believe it!). It does relate to one of the stories in the first video. It does contain a butt. Be forewarned.
I was lied to!!!!!
They told me that my biggest paper was due last week. Well they gave us another big paper to write this week... I am really not happy about this. I shut down my
big think factory last week, as all the workers were over worked. Now I have to get everything back up and running again... Oh the struggle this will be.
Off to listen to some songs from Shrek. For some odd reason these songs just get me writing and just aahhh! I really don't know how to describe this feeling. Brings back all those good memories of childhood.
Whenever I hear the word pronoun, I think of a Pro noun. A Pro cricket player. Mmm how can a noun become a Pro noun? English has some really strange words for things, English is just a really weird language.
A few days ago, I set forth on a journey to Bahamas, a place I've always wanted to visit since I was very young.
My first few nights would be spent at the popular holiday resort named Atlantis, supposedly a lost civilization that fell out of favor with the gods and became submerged under the sea.
Throughout the resort, there are recurring themes of Mayan and Aztec ruins which were believed to be remnants of the lost city of Atlantis.
Let's delve a little deeper into this Paradise Island and see whether we can uncover some mysteries surrounding the lost civilization of Atlantis, and also see what more this resort has to offer!
The Royal Towers are frequently used as the representative image of Atlantis because of its grand and imposing design. Aside from that it is also surrounded by the Aquacenter water park and a large number of aquariums home to many e
여름 저녁이 너무 좋습니다. 맨하탄도 평소엔 공기가 좋지는 않지만 여름 저녁만큼은 분위기 탓인지 신선한 느낌이네요. 특별히 2주 뒤면 이 도시에서 여름 저녁 석양을 바라보는 날이 있는데요. 맨하탄헨지 를 소개하려 합니다.
맨하탄헨지 / Manhattanhenge
일 년에 두번 있는 맨하탄헨지는, 석양이 맨하탄의 격자구조의 거리와 나란히 놓이는 위치에서 지는 현상입니다. 영국의 선사유적지 스톤헨지와 같은 “헨지/henge”를 사용합니다. 단어에서 느껴지듯 마치 맨하탄에서 태양을 기리는 것 같은 의미를 풍기죠. 인파 속에 묻혀 가만히 붉은 해를 보고 있으면 정말 의식을 치루듯 경건한 분위기가 들기도 합니다.
Have you ever been to the Manhattanheng
Im sure any of you who have gone through any sort of school system know of the kids with the so called “Tiger Moms” who expect nothing but perfection out of their children. In many cases they check their homework before it gets handed in, do it for their child and make sure that they are nothing but the best in their class. In the short term this may help a child, but in the long term, not only does this many times lead to a lack of independence, but also hatred and resentment towards their parents later in life. One of my best friends had a tiger mom and when he went to college, he had a very hard time and blames his parent’s overprotection. Children need to learn to do things on their own, especially if they do them incorrectly because that’s how they learn and fix the mistake, they must be allowed in some ways, to fail.
One of the greatest quotes from “Batman Begins” summarizes my point perfectly. After a young Bruce Wayne falls t
