I wonder what she's cooking.

It's a cauldron in Romania: don't ask, don't tell.

I credit this lady with instilling some political common sense into me back when I was extremely young and silly and I said I was a royalist. She'd rip me off. Needless to say where her sympathies lay.

Welcoming of the holy relics of the right hand of. st John Forerunner and the piece of the Holy Cross in the cathedral in Niš (the place of birth of the emperor Constantine) in Serbia. I wish I was these days in my homeland to participate in all these celebrations...

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

lower church at my Białystok parish

My parish has exactly the same three-dimensional cross where you can light candles. It's difficult to get those candles in. I guess it's a Slavic thing.

Nice picture.
