"St. Andrew's Day is the feast day of Saint Andrew. It is celebrated on the 29th or 30th of November.

Saint Andrew is the patron saint of Cyprus, Scotland, Greece, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, San Andres Island, Colombia and Saint Andrew, Barbados.

St. Andrew's Day (Scots: Saunt Andra's Day, Scottish Gaelic: Là Naomh Anndrais) is Scotland's official national day. In 2006, the Scottish Parliament designated St Andrew's Day as an un-official bank holiday. It is also a national holiday in Romania (since 2015).
In Germany, the feast day is celebrated as Andreasnacht ("(St.) Andrew's Night"), in Austria with the custom of Andreasgebet ("(St.) Andrew's Prayer"), and in Poland as Andrzejki ("Andrew's (festivities)"), in Russia as Андреева ночь ("Andrew's night")."

Tribute in November.

In memoriam.

Freddie Mercury
In the remembrance of the unforgettable legend.
Yes, I'm a fan of the rock music. A Freddie Mercury's fan. Since high school... actually since forever, almost... From the '80 when at the radio I've heard songs like "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Radio Ga-ga" or "I Want to Break Free" and followed by so many famous songs... (A list will not be enough to present all my favourites songs; so, the  below selection of the videos is purely made by chance, a simple selection or a way to say something like:  "to let us cling together as the years go by"... or "let us never lose the lessons we have learned"... Just to cite some lyrics from the song "Teo Torriatte"...)
In all these years, I listened all the pieces, all the songs... almost all. Thanks to the internet era, now, it is possible to do that. In the '90, I had some vinyl discs and tapes, (audio and video) and, of course, I cherish them so much. Precious souvenirs from old golden times. Along with the music of Elvis. I admit. I'm a pop-rock music fan. Always.
But for now, my tribute is for Freddie and his excellency in music.

And like in his lyrics I'll always say: "The show must go on"!
RIP 5 September, 1946 - 24 November, 1991

"Freddie Mercury *(5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991) was a British singer, songwriter and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the rock band Queen*. As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octave range. As a songwriter, he composed many hits for Queen, including "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Killer Queen," "Somebody to Love," "Don't Stop Me Now," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," and "We Are the Champions." Mercury also led a solo career, and also occasionally served as a producer and guest musician (piano or vocals) for other artists.
Mercury was a Parsi born in the Sultanate of Zanzibar and grew up there and in India until his mid-teens. He died of bronchopneumonia brought on by AIDS on 24 November 1991, one day after publicly acknowledging he had the disease. In 1992 he was posthumously awarded the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music, and his tribute concert was held at Wembley Stadium, London. As a member of Queen, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004, and the band received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002. In 2002, Mercury was placed at number 58 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons.
He has been voted one of the greatest singers in the history of popular music. In 2005, a poll organised by Blender and MTV2 saw Mercury voted the best male singer of all time. In 2008, Rolling Stone editors ranked him number 18 on their list of the 100 greatest singers ever. In 2009, a Classic Rock poll elected him the best rock singer of all time. Additionally, AllMusic has characterised Mercury as "one of rock's greatest all-time entertainers," who possessed "one of the greatest voices in all of music."

"Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)" (手をとりあって Teo Toriatte) is a song by Queen from their 1976 album A Day at the Races. Written by guitarist Brian May".
Chorus translation
"The chorus part sung in Japanese goes as follows:

"手を取り合って このまま行こう (Te o toriatte Kono mama ikō)

愛する人よ (Aisuru hito yo)
静かな宵に (Shizuka na yoi ni)
光を灯し (Hikari o tomoshi)
愛しき 教えを抱き (Itoshiki Oshie o idaki)"

The chorus part sung in English is the rough equivalent of:

"Let us cling together as the years go by,
Oh my love, my love,
In the quiet of the night
Let our candles always burn,
Let us never lose the lessons we have learned."

One picture or more... From time to time.(1) I saw…

One picture or more... From time to time.
O imagine sau mai multe ... Când și când.

Puiu M in Autumn Light.


Am văzut…

 Frumusețea aninată’n  colț de rai ce acol’ era.
Am privit uimit culoarea și am simțit,
Apoi, căldura ce părea a emana.
M-am grăbit să prind cu gândul, ambientul.
 Cordu-mi se umplea de mireasma plutitoare
A firavelor cochete înșirate împrejur…
M-am grăbit să sorb cu văzul, să adulmec
rând pe rând, mlădioasele , -ncoronate…
 Aliniate ori împrăștiate-n câte-un rond ocol,
Tanțose, de a lor alură de crăiese îmbujorate
Răsfirate-n zeci de tufe… făr’ de soț, parol…
Am văzut…
Și-n minunea înfățisată am rămas făr’ de răspuns.

Am văzut ori ba?

Random access memory.
An expression. Random - something that accidentally occurred. Unexpected. Casual or incidental.
All the terms are in dictionaries.
I'll access my memory in a random way through the camera lens, through the captures made from time to time.
Randomly. 
Access... memories... flashbacks...
A single pink flower of ipomea or morning glory in autumn.

"I saw…
That  beauty  in a corner of the heaven was; there it was.

Amazed I've looked at the color and I felt right then 
all the heat that seemed to clearly emanate.

I hurried to catch with my thought, the ambient.
My heart was filled with the floating smell 
of those frail and so chic blooms...  
around me aligned so well..." 
... 
I saw…
And in the wonder pictured, I remained with no response.
I've seen or not?
All the beauty that  in a corner of the heaven was; 
And it seemed it was..."

Pink Ipomoea or morning glory. "The generic name is derived from the Greek words ιπς (ips) or ιπος (ipos), meaning "worm" or "bindweed," and όμοιος (homoios), meaning "resembling". It refers to their twining habit. The genus occurs throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, and comprises annual and perennial herbaceous plants, lianas, shrubs and small trees; most of the species are twining climbing plants." "Most species have spectacular, colorful flowers and are often grown as ornamentals, and a number of cultivars have been developed."

Quinces and apples in autumn.

From Did you know Category/ Știați că*: 

"Flash memory (both NOR and NAND types) was invented by Dr. Fujio Masuoka while working for Toshiba circa 1980. According to Toshiba, the name "flash" was suggested by Masuoka's colleague, Shōji Ariizumi, because the erasure process of the memory contents reminded him of the flash of a camera. Masuoka and colleagues presented the invention at the IEEE 1984 International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) held in San Francisco.


Intel Corporation saw the massive potential of the invention and introduced the first commercial NOR type flash chip in 1988. NOR-based flash has long erase and write times, but provides full address and data buses, allowing random access to any memory location."

Random-access memory (RAM /ræm/) is a form of computer data storage. A random-access memory device allows data items to be accessed (read or written) in almost the same amount of time irrespective of the physical location of data inside the memory. In contrast, with other direct-access data storage media such as hard disks, CD-RWs, DVD-RWs and the older drum memory, the time required to read and write data items varies significantly depending on their physical locations on the recording medium, due to mechanical limitations such as media rotation speeds and arm movement delays."


Pink Ipomoea or morning glory "The generic name is derived from the Greek words ιπς (ips) or ιπος (ipos), meaning "worm" or "bindweed," and όμοιος (homoios), meaning "resembling". It refers to their twining habit. The genus occurs throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, and comprises annual and perennial herbaceous plants, lianas, shrubs and small trees; most of the species are twining climbing plants." 

"Most morning glory flowers unravel into full bloom in the early morning. The flowers usually start to fade a few hours before the "petals" start showing visible curling. They prefer full solar exposure throughout the day, and mesic soils. In cultivation, most are treated as perennial plants in frost-free areas and as annual plants in colder climates, but some species tolerate winter cold. There are some species which are strictly annual (e.g. I. nil), producing many seeds, and some perennial species (e.g. I. indica) which are propagated by cuttings. Some moonflowers, which flower at night, are also in the morning glory family." 

The quince (/ˈkwɪns/; Cydonia oblonga) is the sole member of the genus Cydonia in the family Rosaceae (which also contains apples and pears, among other fruits). It is a small (...) a pome fruit, similar in appearance to a pear, and bright golden-yellow when mature. Throughout history the cooked fruit has been used as food, but the tree is also grown for its attractive pale pink blossom and other ornamental qualities." "It is native to rocky slopes and woodland margins in South-west Asia, Turkey and Iran although it can be grown successfully at latitudes as far north as Scotland. It should not be confused with its relatives, the Chinese Quince, Pseudocydonia sinensis, or the Flowering Quinces of genus Chaenomeles.

The immature fruit is green with dense grey-white pubescence, most of which rubs off before maturity in late autumn when the fruit changes colour to yellow with hard, strongly perfumed flesh.
 ... 
The fruit was known to the Akkadians, who called it supurgillu; Arabic سفرجل al safarjal "quinces" (collective plural). The modern name originated in the 14th century as a plural of quoyn, via Old French cooin from Latin cotoneum malum / cydonium malum, ultimately from Greek κυδώνιον μῆλον, kydonion melon "Kydonian apple". The quince tree is native to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Iraq, Iran, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Pakistan, Kashmir, Afghanistan and was introduced to Poland, Syria, Lebanon, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Turkey, Serbia, Republic of Macedonia, Albania, Cyprus, Greece, Romania, Hungary, Ukraine, Moldova, and Bulgaria."
