Daughter tells her Dad he’s going to be a Grandpa [x]

When he says “really” ;’)

Never leave this un-reblogged

What a dear human being he is. 

He’s going to make a cute grandpa

This is how every unborn child should be greeted by their family.


The X-Files (1993-2002)“Rich and layered, deep and alternatively light and tragic, it’s the show that changed, well, everything really, about how television drama was executed. It lives on even today, as we see how the protagonists of Fox Mulder the Believer and Dana Scully the Skeptic continue to influence how characters are shaped, and the way the mythology of the show allowed for primetime television to explore new roads of storytelling. It was beautiful and asked the most human of questions regarding our existence and our beliefs, but more than anything, it was a love story in every possible regard— the love for life, the love for truth, and of course, the love for each other.”

Byzantium king tomb turning into garbage dump

To the left of the Silivrikapı Walls in Istanbul’s Fatih neighborhood, there lies a tomb from the fourth century A.D., which is now in ruins. Known as the Silivri Crypt, the tomb, which has been suffering since its discovery in 1988, is now in its worst state.

The Silivrikapı Crypt, which was…

It does not surprise me. The Turkish politic is focused on its Ottoman history and Atatürk. Everything before 1453 seems not to be of importance.

Another example? Erdogan wants to turn the Hagia Sophia back into a mosque, althought Atatürk himself had closed it to reopen it as a museum because of its relevance as an historical place.

Soviet War Memorial Ikki.bo | Via

In October 1967, a colossal monument, “The Motherland Calls”, was erected on Mamayev Kurgan. The monument, designed by Yevgeny Vuchetich, consists of a concrete sculpture 52 meters tall, and 82 meters from the feet to the tip of a stainless steel sword, dominating the skyline of the city of Stalingrad. At the time of its construction, it was the tallest sculpture in the world. The statue forms part of a War memorial complex that includes ruined walls deliberately left the way they were after the battle. The Grain Silo, as well as Pavlov’s House, the apartment building whose defenders eventually held out for two months until they were relieved, can still be visited.

The statue commemorates the Battle of Stalingrad. Two hundred steps, symbolizing the 200 days of the Battle, lead from the bottom of the hill to the monument.

Thank you!

To all my followers, thank you for your patience. My blog is not dead, but I’m nearly… My work right now, so much work… And tumblr is …well, you know how it is: You just want to scroll quickly through your dashboard to look, what’s new and then, suddenly - one hour is gone! So I try to avoid it right now to get my work done. Ugh, I hope it soon will be over…
