Why Nobody Loves "Miss"

This device is not new on the expressways of Italy but the drivers do not use it and do not like it.
The automatic checkout counter.
To avoid long queues that are sometimes many km-s long. We call it "Miss" because it speaks with the young female voice.

Look at the photo. Over the chackout doors are 2 pictures on the white background. One is with the hand. It means, there is a man to take payment money there. The other is without hand. It means there is "Miss" there.
Do you see how long is the queue on the left and only 2 cars on the right. :0)))

My husband does not like "Miss" generally because every operation takes different seconds there and all the payment process is long enough. Longer as with the man. But when my husband sees this situation, beginns to say: "I do not understand why nobody loves the poor "Miss". She is so brave, so educated!"
("Miss" is very educated. She says always "Good day!" and after payment " Good Bye! See you!" The man nobody says something like this.

Stories About Decorated Teeth

I'm sure you've heard and watched something like this many times. It's the fashion of the moment maybe or an other mental desease, or this two toghether. Evetything is possible.



I have seen the "diamonds" applicated on the teeth of some girls. It is very nice, why not. They say, there are persons that do not applicate but incorporate the stones in their teeth. I think, it's not very healthy, but it's their choise.

I wanted to "investigate" about it and found that there are different "styles" of decorating teeth today. With gold, with other colors and with the diamonds (real too). And than I found very interesting articles in National Geographic.
So, I new that "nothing is new under the Moon":
May 18, 2009—The glittering "grills" of some hip-hop stars aren't exactly unprecedented. Sophisticated dentistry allowed Native Americans to add bling to their teeth as far back as 2,500 years ago, a new study says.(Nat.Geo.Photo on the bottom)
And not finished here!
"the remains are dated to between 2570 B.C. and 2322 B.C. The teeth show the earliest known evidence of dental modification in the Americas. " (Nat.Geogr.) What do you think did the dentists to that man? They did so that he could insert teeth of a jaguar or somebody else!!!

Do you think it was in use only in America?
No.
VIKINGS were fashinated of the teeth decoration too!!!! (Nat.Geogr.)
And you thought they were rude and similar to the animals. No, they loved to appear beautiful too!

The Short Life Of A Rose

I love these 2 photos of my roses, so I add them in every place I can. Unfortunatelly, the roses, flowers, have short life, and the spring flowering passes after some days. If you want to buy a rose you have to ask the vendor how many tumes the rose you want to buy flowers a year. Because there are roses that have only one flowering, 2 or many. It means, your rose will have a period of relax and that will flower the other time. And so till the autumn. Maybe it will have simple flowers the second and the next times.

All roses I have live in this order. But they need more and special fertilizers. And generally the roses need many cures.

I would like to live in a not so hot place where I could to grow many many different sorts of flowers. The place where I live actually is not good for most of them. Too hot and there is not enough soul for the roots. The poor roses have not forces to open their too big flowers like Coral Fiesta on the first photo that normally becomes old without opening the rose.

What Do You Know About Sakura?


Everybody of us had heard about the most loved tree of Japanese -Sakura. I never could understand this great love. A tree is always a tree. Yes, there are beautiful trees, there are different trees, but to become a sort of god... I've seen some photos of flowering sakura this year. Now I understand the great love of Japanese.  More photos you can see here.

In A Supermarket To Buy An Antique Car

This is our main attraction actually.One of the biggest commercial centers in our region (there were built many of them in last 3-4 years here). My husband never went in the supermarkets before. It was my task. Now he discovered that it is interesting to visit big commercial centers. From other side he found a place where diesel costs euro 0,98 -and it means that we go round more as before. So, we visit this commercial center relatively often.

There is so much place inside there and it is given to all sorts of vendors. Normally those are antiquaries and car-vendors. Now you can understand what is that attracts my husband so much. The cars.

Last time we were there we found a hybrid of that two species of vendors. Antiquaries +car vendors= antique car vendors. So we made some photos (and not only we did it: every visitor wanted to make a photo near these cars). I do not understand anything about antique cars but I think these are not just rarities. Well, we do not see them every day.

I looked inside these cars and was it very interesting to see the only some things for the driver there. The modern cars are similar to the space vehicles in confront of them.

More About My Garden

I was very busy with my flowers in the last period. Spring time, you know, flowers everywhere, and weeds, weeds, weeds. I don't pass all my time in the garden, no. Most days continue to rain here. Terrible is the weather this year.

I wrote about my splendid glicinias (wisterias -My Romantique Castle and Wisteria This Year) and told you that I have common and 4 "special" wisterias. Only one of the long had 3 poor flowers this year and they were in a place where I could not make a photo. Now the late specie has some flowers. They are very different as you see. They are short.

Unfotunatelly, I continue to have problems with my PC and not only canot write comments in your blogs (my PC does not open the pages of Blogger) but could not open "Insert Image" page too. So, you see I had to add photos with code, so you can think they are not mine. But it is not true. The photos are of my wisteria. It is the PC that doesn't work.
