I found chauvinistic your statement that English is the best language for music. After discussion I have understood that for this it is the most convenient language with what I can partially agree. I agree also that one should sing English to go global and I did not try to proof that it is not true.

About unstoppable process — medieval scholars thought the same about the Latin language — lingua aeterna as they said. But in result this language was not so eternal as they believed. It is just a question of time — maybe one hundred, maybe half of the millennium years — that English language and today European civilisation will vanish from the Earth to be changed by the new ones. Just a historical process and nothing more. Ancient Egyptians were not able to believe that Indoeuropean languages of the Sea Tribes will push out Akkadian and Egyptian languages and become the instrument of communication, science and literature from the Pillars of Hercules to far India.

Also Redhead, could you explain a little what are you going to do with Brexit? I am wondering if I will be able to travel to the UK in the nearest future without Visa if you will exit EU.

Here you made a mistake again . You should have said «she has been dominating for 3 years», cause she still is and you are referring to the period of time that is still on going. Because she is still dominating, I mean I said «bad performance» but in reality — a silver medal is not that bad at all, it is just she didn't meet the expectations of those who wanted her to get the gold. If you had in mind that her domination in figure skating is over and in the past you should have said " She dominated for 3 years."

Good luck to her. Why hate someone so beautiful and talented and with such a lovely personality? It is beyond me. You know — when my daughter gets some great part in a ballet or a musical or a play -some girls at school all of a sudden start hating her rather than be happy for her — not all the girls, but some. It is just jealousy. By the way — for her acting exam they chose a piece from Matilda by Roald Dhal for her to do. It is a small, but intensive piece, one has to do the scene totally on their own and by sod's law — one of the main rehearsals is gonna be when we will be in France — on Saturday the 20th, we didn't think of that when we booked the Disney cause the drama school schedule wasn't available then but the Drama Teacher is gonna give her some extra time before and after that, so hopefully it will be allright.

Thank you — my oldest is now 12 and the littlest — 8. I can't believe my oldest is gonna be a teenager next year. I am really scared of the teenage stage. At some point me and my husband will have 3 teenagers in the house — say, when they are 13, 15 & 17 — can you imagine? We joke between each other sometimes that «This will be the time to pack our bags» (meaning we will move out of the house). It is a joke of course, it won't be that bad — other parents cope and so will we.
Yeah, I have periods like that — when I am just dog tired and knackered. Never been to Georgia. It is nice though — to get away somewhere regardless — just to change the atmosphere. Have a great trip.

Well, you know. Regarding your «has to go and drink in pubs». Noone makes you, but there are traditions. The pub tradition goes back centuries. How it was born- «pub» means a «public house». Some people opened their doors to the public and served food and drink downstairs — for which they charged of course. They ran pubs and lived upstairs. The tradition is very old , British pubs are renowned the world over — read about it. https://www.historic-uk.com/CultureUK/The-Great-... There are pubs out there where Shakespear used to drink. In fact, they say in London you are never than 7 minutes' walk away from a pub,
Re Muslims — most are sociable and go to pubs as well — those who are very moderate Muslims do drink, some will have a soft drink, etc.

Well, actually — you got me right the first time as well. Yes it is international and convenient for song writing, but it also is the best sounding in my view. Otherwise — some other language music would sell better, but it doesn't.

Well — maybe, who knows what's gonna happen centuries and centuries ahead of us. But — you know so much about history, you are a very educated person, I feel a bit ashamed — history is not my strong point.

I don't know what's gonna happen for certain with Brexit — if I knew I would probably be a billionaire, but what I can say for sure is some restrictions on travel into the country will take place. They are saying that migrants from the EU will no longer have any special treatment, so probably will need a visa. Like we ourselves will need a visa to go to the EU countries. It sounds quite sad really, doesn't it? If one puts it like that. I am used to travelling around the world with no visas. But you will still be able to come, there will just be a little bit more hassle.

Oleksa Єromіn (WILDTRACER),

By the way, talking of the most famous modern Swedish acts, have you heard of Avicii? I met him personally once. He DJayed in Ibiza for 5 years, he was a massive record producer as well — topping the charts here in the UK and in the States as well.

Here are some of his tracks — to put you all into that Friday mood:

Hey brother


Wake me up



The Nights



Levels — this track propelled him to fame and went viral in all the night clubs around the world :


Levels



He actually died last year. RIP — was 28 years old, poor lad.
AVICII: TRUE STORIES — Official Trailer




P.S Oops, . I made a mistake - Avicii died this year of course - the cause of death was suicide.

It is jealousy of course. And she has been beating darlings and faves of many fan's again and again for 3 years in a row. She has thousands of haters in Asia in general and in Korea in particular becase she broke their national hero Yuna Kim free skate record (150 points). And she did it on the very first year she turned senior. Probably, they hoped 150 will be all-time record and no one will ever break it.

thanks)

Btw, I found out rather talended Russian junior skater Petr Gumennik.



Many young Russian boys look promising. I hope they will be able to break unlucky streak of Russian male skaters who can't win any more or less serious title even in theory.

Anna Sherbakova made history just a few minutes ago. No other lady ever landed a ratified quad lutz in competition before. Today Anna landed two in one program (her first jumping pass is 4lz-3t, second jump is single 4lz, both were ratified by judges).


Now her goal is to land it at Gran prix finals…

Peter's short program is also very nice. I wish him good luck in Gran prix finals.

It is just unbelievable how talented these Russian kids are. I mean — if you think about it — they are just kids really, these skaters. To demonstrate such a high level of achievement at such a young age — just great, fantastic.

Hi all
I'm finally back from Georgia! Georgians are very welcoming people. I should also mention tasty food and good wine. And the last but not the least - magnificent mountains. They make you feel special, make you think about eternity, millennials and so on. I liked my second trip to Georgia a lot. I'll post some photos later.

I just remembered Kamila Valieva performance in 2015. She was 8.



Another very talented kid

You didn't get arrested or kidnapped there then? What a shame. (This is just a joke, caustic English humour).

Sounds lovely. Looking forward to the pics. I posted some pics in our Convention group thread of our olive tree in our backgarden. It's got ripe olives all over it right now.
