Many thanks to esraaysu from https://nightwithdeer.wordpress.com for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award!

The rules regarding the Award can be found here: https://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/vba-rules/

My answers to esraaysu’s questions:

1.If you are to witness/experience something paranormal/supernatural would you share it with someone or would you keep it to yourself?

I’d share it, though i’m not sure it’s a right thing to do (in fact i did experience things like that — well here am i sharing this actually 😉 , but doubt that it has any meaning for anybody else (tried to share, doubt it had any effect or whatever)).

2.Who are your top three poet or writer? (you can write both)

Writers? mmm… C.S.Lewis, F.Dostojevsky… If maths books count as a piece of literature, then i could include Jan van Mill into my list (with his Infinite-Dimensional Topology of Function Spaces…)

3.Do you collect something?If “yes” then;what do you collect?

In case that counts, ‘ve got flowers at home, not lots of them, but enough, and just sometimes i buy flowers which are a kind of about to fade away (‘m not sure that the usage of this construction is correct — English isn’t my native language), now they’re alive and well…

4.Is there any language/languages you wish you knew,if there is then which one/ones?

The languages i desire to know? German and Spanish, i guess… German is in fact more like my native languages (Ukrainian and Russian), and simply, well, a kind of like it :).

5.Just imagine,beyond black holes;what would you wish there to be?

Oceans of Light 🙂 Or new unknown worlds… difficult to imagine even…

6.Anything you miss which has become obsolete?

Can’t think of anything like that… I’m sorry

7.Is there a movie you recommend viewing? What is it? 🙂

Perhaps it’s The Chronicles of Narnia, the episode about the Wardrobe, the Lion and the Witch 🙂

My seven questions to my nominees (yep, the first one is a kind of philosophic, the rest are not serious…):

1. How do you think, what real Love is?

2. Tell a funny story about your pet (if you’ve ever had one… possibly include a photo :))

3. Name a subject you didn’t like the most at school and why. What’s your attitude to it now? How about your children (do they like it)?

4. What country would you love to visit and why?

5. Any hobbies?

6. Your favorite song 🙂 (include a video)

7. And in the end a bit of Logic, but please do try to think of a funny and out-of-the box answer to the question (it’s a well-known version of Russel’s paradox in fact):

If a barber is allowed to shave those and only those persons who cannot shave themselves, can he shave himself then? (please elaborate why)

Camels & Cats

Here goes the guest post by Uncle Spike – and it’s about cats! 🙂

Lesia asked Uncle Spike, that’s me, a camel from southern Turkey, to tell you some stories about cats. Hmm, well, for starters, did ya know that cats are admired by camels? Well, you should, coz it’s true, no matter what the teachers say at skool, honest. You see, way back in history, and I’m talking pre-Facebook, my Great Great Uncle Jarvis explained it all to his neighbour’s dog, who happened to have a cat as a best friend – so it must be true, yeah?

Anyway, this is what’s been handed down over the years, and now part of camel / cat folklore…

Sleepy puss: First off, cats will sleep just about anywhere and everywhere! They sleep in boxes, in buckets, under cars, regularly found on top of unsuspecting people (whilst they are sleeping), and of course, on any window ledge you’ll ever come across! Can you just imagine the faces if I tried that?

SPIKE 01

Noisy puss: Them furry felines snore big time – you ever heard one?? Yeah, they even snore when they are happy, being stroked or apparently just contented. One cat tried to say it was different, and called it ‘purring’; I still say it’s snoring. Camels don’t snore (much),… err, although we are prone to the odd bout of spitting, but hey, it’s what we do!

SPIKE 02

Poser puss: At least us camels make it plainly obvious to all and sundry when we are peeved with the world; which is most of the time. Not famed for being happy chappies, more so for our grumbling, moaning, spitting and biting – and that’s on a good day! But I reckon them pussy cats are always a bit snooty, think that they’re the bees knees, a real poser, the king of the jungle out there – oh, hold on, some pussy cats will be just that when they grow up…

SPIKE 03

Fast puss: Ever seen us camels race? We can’t half move on a sandy racetrack, especially when there’s a backhander with attractive odds at the local bookies. But, have you ever tried outrunning a puss-cat, even a small one? They move pretty quick too, as my neighbour’s dog regularly swears to in court most weeks. African pussy cats take the biscuit though; even a camel can’t outrun them!

SPIKE 04

Hungry puss: Cats are always hungry. They like to scoff special food from fancy tins with posh names and pretty lilac-coloured labels; especially yukky smelly old fishy recipes! And then the next minute they’ll bring in their own dessert, and dump it right in front of the telly – no manners at all…. Not like us camels, we chew our food slow… real slow – mealtimes can last forever. However, we also make ‘sounds’ when we eat, oops! However, even I have to admit that we’d all rather have a kitten on our lap than a fully grown dromedary!

SPIKE 05

Well dear friends of Lesia, this grumpy old camel has to go now, jobs to do and all that. It’s been super fun popping up on your screens; perhaps see you again over at my place. See ya….
