Autumn

Autumn Fires
by Robert Louis Stevenson
In the other gardens
And all up the vale
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke  trail!
 Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
Autumn Qoutation
 Autumn is the second sprign where every leaf is a flower.
Albert Camus
No spring nor
Summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumn face.
John Donne
Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.
William Cullen Bryant
Winter is the etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.
Stanley Horowitz
For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
Edwin Way Teale
  

 Autumn
The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.
Emily Dickinson

Diamond Jubilee River Pageant: The Best Bits



Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebration

Мамин День


Mother's Day is intended to be a day to celebrate motherhood. Many churches and families in the United States recognize the second Sunday in May to honor mothers. Many years ago, England observed a day to honor mothers in mid-Lent that was called Mothering Sunday. In the United Kingdom, Mothers' Day is celebrated in March. The first known suggestion of Mother's Day in the United States was in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe. She suggested that people observe the day on June 2 as a day dedicated to peace.  In 1908, Anna Jarvis of West Virginia began a campaign for a nationwide observance of Mother's Day. She chose the second Sunday in May and started the custom of wearing a carnation. If a person wears a colored carnation, their mother is living. A white carnation signifies that their mother has passed away. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a joint resolution of Congress recommending that Congress and the executive branch of government recognize the observance of Mother's Day. From:

Международный День Танца


International Dance Day was introduced in 1982 by the International Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute, a UNESCO partner NGO, and is celebrated on April 29 every year. The day was suggested by the International Dance Committee to commemorate the birthday of Jean –George Noverre (1727-1810), the creator of modern ballet. Every year, an outstanding choreographer or dance is invited to deliver a message which is circulated throughout the world. The personality is selected by the founding entity of the International Dance Day – the International Dance Committee of ITI, which collaborates with World Dance Alliance, a Cooperating Member of ITI. The goal is to celebrate Dance, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and bring people together through the common language of Dance.

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed days
The dark sacred nights
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
The colours of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
And also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying "How do you do?"
They're really saying
"I love you"
I hear babies crying
I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Очень жаль!!!


If I should stay,
I would only be in your way.
So I'll go, but I know
I'll think of you every step of the way.
And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
You, my darling you. Hmm.
Bittersweet memories
that is all I'm taking with me.
So, goodbye. Please, don't cry.
We both know I'm not what you, you need.
And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you've dreamed of.
And I wish to you, joy and happiness.
But above all this, I wish you love.
And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I, I will always love you.
You, darling, I love you.
Ooh, I'll always, I'll always love you.
 
 I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me
Chorus:

День объятий

Hugging Day is an annual holiday created by Rev. Kevin Zaborney. It occurs on January 21 and is officially recognized by the United States Copyright Office, but is not a public holiday. The holiday was founded on January 21, 1986 in Michigan, and has since spread to multiple countries. The purpose for the holiday is to help everyone show more emotion in public. There is only one way you are supposed to celebrate the holiday, offer a hug to anyone and everyone you want. Whether you hug a family member or a stranger, the mental and physical health benefits are the same. Kevin Zaborney chose January 21 because it marks a midpoint between Christmas and Valentines day, where people are figured to be at their emotional low. Americans are embarrassed to show their feelings in public and hoped that a National Hug Day would change that. The Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami Medical School has found that French couples spend 3 times as much time touching when compared to Americans. Studies have shown that human contact has many health benefits. It has been found that human contact, such as a hug, is essential for healthy social, psychological and physical development. Hugging can also help build a good immune system, decrease the risk of heart disease, and decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol in women.(from Wikipedia)

Мы любим Битлз



A student at Quarry Bank School in Liverpool named John Lennon decided to form a group in 1957 which laid the foundation of the most famous rock band of all time. John used the name of his school to name the group. He became a fan of American rock 'n' roll music that time and performed such music in the repertoire. On July 6, 1957, the boy from the group invited Paul McCartney to see their gig. The fifteen-year-old McCartney and sixteen-year-old Lennon began a unique song writing partnership. There were some changes in the membership of the group, but finally settled "The Beatles" went to their first trip to Hamburg in August, 1960. At that time The Beatles weren't considered to be the leading group in Liverpool. By this time, they had hired Brian Epstein as their manager and he signed them up for an audition with Decca Records. Their first single "Love Me Do" was issued on October 5, 1962, and became a hit. 1963 and 1964 proved to be the most important years.
