HOME by Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Doing my blog round yesterday I came accross the link for the movie HOME at Julia's blog. I had been sent the link before but I hadn't had time to watch it. But now, with some time, a cup of tea and Mr Husband, we sat and watch it.
Home was directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, a french photographer author of the book "La Terre vue du ciel": " Earth from Above" (I think that was the english translation).

The first time I came to europe, I landed in Paris and the day after, whilst walking through the gardens of the Palace of Luxemburg, we bumped into these huge aereal pictures of the world. Fantastic pictures, beautifully taken and enlarged. There was a little video being shown and the photographer was somewhere around there and we talked for a few minutes in my very rudimentary french. Back home I bought the book and I was fascinated by it so I bought a couple of different versions and formats which became presents to friends.
This movie has not only beautiful images and fantastic music, but also a deep message that we all should learn, discuss, pass on and most importantly...act on it. The natural balance of the planet has been shattered by us, the homo sapiens, and there isn't too much time left to do something about it. It isn't a catastrophic, complot-like message... it's just a fact which can be checked by any of us.
Like the movie says, it isn't time to be a pessimist but to react... now.
The movie can be watched for free in its entirety online here until 14th June (different languages to chose on the top right corner). It is very much worth your time. For you and for your children.

Tuvimos la suerte de verla al pie de la Torre Eiffel.. genial... me hizo llorar, y el tipo es un grosso, estuvo ahi, entre medio de la gente como uno mas... obvio que se llevo la ovacion de todos...
Todavia sigo pensando en todo lo que vi.
No se si viste mas cosas de el, pero si tenes la oportunidad mira un documental que hizo que se llama 5 milliard d'autres (son entrevistas a gente en todo el mundo a las cuales les hace las mismas preguntas... te sorprende ver que tanto en Africa como en America una cosa puede sentirse de la misma forma...)

רציתי לחלק אותכם במקרה אותו עברתי אחרי הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במשך שנה אחרי הטראומה, הרגשתי מדוכאת, ללא שמחת חיים, עייפה ומדוכדכת. בכל דרך רפואית רגילה לא יכולתי להשתקם ולכן פניתי ל- [b][url=http://www.maker.co.il/3_15707/%D7%9E%D7%90%D7%9E%D7%A8/%D7%9B%D7%9C-%D7%94%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%91%D7%93%D7%95%D7%AA-%D7%A2%D7%9C-%D7%A0%D7%A4%D7%A9-%D7%94%D7%90%D7%93%D7%9D-%D7%95%D7%A2%D7%99%D7%A1%D7%95%D7%99-%D7%A8%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%90%D7%99-(%D7%9E%D7%A1%D7%90%D7%92%60).html]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. ייעצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ-Spa-Vip.co.il - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר כולל עיסוי שוודי מפנק במיוחד אשר גרם להתעוררות חושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. קשה לי להמחיש את השינוי אותו עברתי, אומנם זה היה טיפול עיסוי איורוודה ראשון, הרגשתי נפלא, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Articles/Article12945.aspx]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם כוחות חדשים, מחייכת ומוכנה להמשיך הלאה.

[b][url=http://www.tapuz.co.il/blog/ViewEntry.asp?EntryId=1679344]עיסוי שוודי[/url][/b] הוא עיסוי רפואי המתאפיין ב ריח של קטורת, מוזיקה נעימה וריח של קטורת. ההתחלה של עיסוי היא מגע מפנק על המגבת אחרי שחשפנו את הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. מריחת שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, אחרכך תנועה עדינה ומלטפת מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. לאחר כמה תנועות עדינות מתחיל הטיפול בצידו השני של הגוף, אחרי התנועות על הצד השני מתחיל שילוב של לחיצות רפואיות כי הגוף התרגל למגע מפנק ומרגיע וזה גרם לשרירים להרפות מעט... כל זה בטיפול פרטי של [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Authors/Author2173.aspx]מעסה[/url][/b] מקצועי עד בית הלקוח!

אני לא האמנתי שדברים כאלו יכולים לקרות עד אשר חוויתי מסאז איורוודה ברמה כזאת, המעסה המקצועי אליי הביתה עם מגע שלא הכרתי אשר לא האמנתי שיכול להיות. ממליצה לכל אחד ואחת אשר מעוניינים ב עיסוי, מסאג' או סתם חוויה בלתי נשכחת בחגים על Spa-VIP.co.il.

From there, make sure that when you wager with an online casino that you know exactly what you are doing. The biggest mistake that you could possibly make would be to place bets on games that you are unsure of. For example, if you want to play blackjack at an online casino but do not know how, make sure you get some details first. If you do not, you are doing the equivalent of throwing your money out the window. The bottom line is that you can never win at an online casino if you do not know the rules of the games that you are going to play.

Keep in mind that since they are outside the country, you might have a hard time on keeping track of them if you ever you were cheated. Remember, distance is daunting if you do not have the means of getting your money back.

The patterns can be anything like, u shape, t shape, etc, though it usually is horizontal or vertical. As soon as you get the pattern, you should shout bingo and you get the prize. In case there are others who shouted at the same time as you, the prize will be shared among all winners.
