12 things we could learn from Amish parents

The Amish are known for their simple living, not watching TV or using the internet, wearing plainclothes, riding in horse carriages and being very religious.

Pelion – where Gods spent their holidays

We didn’t have to choose. Pelion is a place where we have found everything: pine-tree forests with waterfalls and water springs, long sandy beaches, villages with traditional architecture and beautiful squares in shade of thousand years old plane trees. Pelion is rich in myths and history, so this is the place where gods of Olympus resided in the summer and Jason and the Argonauts went in search of the Golden Fleece.

Spetses: car-free island with giant trucks

Many would agree that Spetses is one of the most wonderful islands in Greece, known for its lush landscapes, traditional architecture, turquoise waters, legendary history, fancy prices, and terrible noises. Actually, car traffic is forbidden on the island, but it seems that motorcycles are not counted. There are more motorcycles in the streets than mosquitos. The only difference is that mosquitos don’t make such a terrible noise.

The Child President

Today’s children are raised to be presidents one day. Their days are full of activities from morning until late evening.

10 reasons why children should play chess

My father played with the best chess players and won many games, but that is not the most important thing.

Modern art

Every artist needs a Muse that will clear the mess behind him, and the muse is usually mom. So one day I was at my appointed task of muse, cleaning the walls while Aura painted the Sun and the Sea. The sun was yellow and the sea was blue. The sun was up and the sea was down. And silly me would have forgotten this marvelous landscape and ignored the artistic genius of my own child if I hadn’t noticed this news on the Internet: Painting identical to Aura’s sold for whopping 46.5 million in a New York Gallery.

We set up several devices for climbing and exercising and added some imagination to the whole ambiance.

His shooting skills did not change; His expectations divided him. This is very important to him. He is thinking more about winning than about shooting. The strong need to win draws the energy that was needed to shoot.

About 2 o’clock after midnight, the stewardess on the airplane woke me up. Is the airplane on fire? Has the engine stopped working? Are we being kidnapped? What is it? With a warm smile, she said, ”Excuse me, Madam, here is your breakfast!” Half dreaming, I was looking at my vegan breakfast in front of me: fruits, burgers, beans in chili sauce, a pastry, and margarine.
