Won't change anything. People will still be arfuing what her face means.

"Was she snobbish"?

"Did Leonardo smell really bad that day"?

"The wrinkles around her mouth contain a secret code telling about the plan to make cats the masters of the world".

City of Guarapuava, in the state of Paraná, this morning here in Brazil:
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

So is the home unused but still belongs to the family? Is that what you mean?

Yes. House is empty, only the small parcel of land and vines around it are used for subsistence agriculture. Quite organic though.

Ah, thanks for sharing.  I find scenes like that oddly captivating and wondered if that's what it was as soon as I saw it.

The table of the Arabic studies at Warsaw University

Hope it's not boasting, but thank God, after a few years (and rewriting some matura exams that are for the end of high school in Poland - after a reform, generally there are no any entrance exam, while earlier matura was just to pass it and now it's the only exam), finally, last Friday I managed to get into Arabic studies at Warsaw University ;D So, actaully, it's a picture of Friday for me, but I was quite busy (Church, celebrating, formalities regarding studies etc.) to post it then

In the south sometimes does snow. Last century it snowed five times. A couple of towns on mountains have it more often.

Unfortunately, just a couple of snowflakes fell on my city and not in my area. :(

I know that the seasons are reversed in the Southern Hemisphere, but is it actually snowing today?

That show is like a car accident encountered while driving in the opposite direction.  You know it's bad before it happens, and so you don't want to see it, but once it enters your field of vision, everything slows down as you gawk in amazement.  When it's all over, you wish you weren't so stupid.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.
