You possibly know the song "Girl from Ipanema". A Brazilian classic, I hear is among the Top 10 hits for elevator music abroad. :)

If you don't, watch it here with the original composer and singer and Andy Williams

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQmXGBlIyts

Anyways, here is a picture of the real girl who inspired the song at 17 when the two songwriters saw her pass by and went "waaah" and today at age 67 (the blonde one).

I can see you went "ah" and "oh". :) That proves the song's point. :)

But indeed, she is 67:

And more photos of her at the age she inspired the song and today:

It's Serbian thing: the feast of the family's patron. Every Serbian family has its own particular patron. It was the day that the first ancestor of the family was baptised. There are some special rituals for Slava, e.g backing of the Slavski Kolač (something between cake and bread), singing the same troparions as for wedding, drinking red wine (symbol of the Martyrs' blood)  with special prayers-toasts called Slavarica and so on ;)

Romaic Empire vs Holy "Roman" Germanic Empire


What's up with the design of the Holy Roman Empire's eagle/falcon. Do they realize it looks straggly or like it is unhealthy? I understand that the Holy Roman Empire's shield really did look like that.

It's okay, but, I'm not sure I'd say it'd the "best ever".

Where's the icon of the Mystical Supper over the Royal gates?

For that matter, where are the Royal Gates?  ;)
