Church of Saints Cyril and Methodius – the Orthodox church I love the most

I’m an Orthodox Christian. I go to many churches, I don’t have the habit of going to one church only. Even in Năvodari, where are now three churches, I go to all three of them, although I do favor some. Well, this blog post is about the church I love the most – Church of Saints Cyril and Methodius.

Why do I like the Bucharest metro?

I like the Bucharest metro because:

  • It’s one of the few places in Bucharest where I can exchange money;
  • Somehow it manages to be clean (again, one of the few places where this happens);
  • It’s safe – there are two guards in the modern train garnishes;
  • It’s fast – for a direct route is probably the fastest way of traveling in Bucharest (yes, by car at night it may be faster, or via air, but other than that it’s not even close; on the other hand, if it’s not a direct route, it may take longer, and the station have a rather large distance from one to another);
  • It’s reliable – very rarely do I hear (never happened to me) that the train stops for a longer time due to some technical problems.

Simple trick: how to browse through 100 photos in Facebook fast?

Today I want to share with you a simple Facebook trick – how to load 100 photos in Facebook fast? Let’s say you want to view an album with 100 photos. One option is going to the first photo, and then either clicking on Next or holding down the “right arrow” key. The problem with this solution is that each time you go to the next image, Facebook first tries to load the image, and it takes some time.

There’s another solution, which I recommend. Go to the first photo, and keep the right arrow on the keyboard pressed. The images will flip very fast. In a few seconds, you’ll be back to the first photo. Now something little of a miracle happened – all the photos are in the browser’s memory and you can browse through the 100 photos much fast.

A favorite quote of mine – Captain Jack ROSS: “I represent the government of the United States without passion or prejudice” – A few good men (1992)

I like the movie “A few good men” (1992) quite a lot, it’s one of my favorite movies, though not as much as “Le notti di Cabiria” (1957).
