Palm trees ... mine

Palm trees ... mine

In a bowl, mix the sugar, vanilla sugar and cinnamon.

Spread the sheet (after letting it thaw) and sprinkle the fragrant sugar on the entire surface, press well with the foil, turn the sheet and ... do the same. We start to fold the dough. A quarter of the width, on both sides towards the center, I sprinkled a little sugar again and I pressed with the facalet again. When we reach the middle of the sheet, join the two strips in one (we overlapped them). Press well with the foil and cut the dough strip into pieces of about 1 cm, which we put in the oven tray with baking paper. We leave them in the preheated oven until they brown a little on the side they are on, after which we turn them over and leave them for another 5 minutes.

Mother's prayer for blessing children

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, for the prayers of Your Most Holy Mother, hear me, Your unworthy handmaid (name). Lord, in Your merciful dominion are my children (name): have mercy on them and save them, for Your name's sake. Lord, forgive them all their willful and unintentional mistakes they have committed before You. Lord, guide them to the true path of Your commandments and enlighten their understanding with the light of Christ, for the salvation of the soul and the healing of the body. Lord, bless them at home, at school, on the road and in all the place of Your dominion. Lord, guard them under Your holy cover from bullets, sword, poison, fire, plague, and sudden death. Lord, protect them from all seen and unseen enemies, from all troubles, evils, and misfortunes. Lord, heal them of all sickness, cleanse them of all defilement, and relieve their suffering. Lord, grant them the grace of Your Holy Spirit to long life, health and purity, in all good faith and love, in peace with those near and those far away. Lord, multiply and strengthen their powers of mind and body, which they have received as a gift from You, blessing them, if they will please before You, for the life of a godly family and the birth of an honest baby. Lord, grant me, to your unworthy and sinful handmaid (name) parental blessing for my children, who are Your servants, in this time of morning (day, night), for Your name, for Your kingdom is eternal and omnipotent. Amen.

If the mother is not absent from the Holy Church, the child develops in this good atmosphere that he feels in his own way, and the child raised in the Church at birth will have a certain behavior, especially if the mother has fasted.
The usual morning and evening prayers, the akathist of St. Stelian and other prayers and akathists when he has time, but it is very important to confess often, to share, if he has release, and especially not to be absent from the Holy Church.

If the mother is not absent from the Holy Church, the child develops in this good atmosphere that he feels in his own way, and the child raised in the Church at birth will have a certain behavior, especially if the mother has fasted. You know that pregnant women may not fast, either because they have a craving or because their health does not allow it. Here the spouses pay for many of their sins by "obeying" them, because they are forced to run at night, who knows what. This is a way to show their care and love for their husbands.

Children are to be taught, both by parents and godparents, and especially by the priest, the fear of God, the right faith, humanity, mercy, humility, obedience, and the knowledge of the Holy Scriptures. They must be accustomed from an early age to fasting, regular prayer, confession, mercy to the needy, and respect for all people.

Parents, if they want to have good, wise, and healthy children, they must first be good, faithful, obedient to the Church, and full of the fear of God. For children are in fact "children" of their parents. What I see and hear in the house from my parents, that's what I do.

The education of children begins right from the day of the parents' wedding, that is, from the moment of conception. In order to have wise and faithful children, parents need to pray a lot, go to church regularly, fast, pray, confess often, keep clean in order, have mercy, be gentle, humble, and full of divine love for all. Husbands are obliged to restrain themselves on holidays and fasts and not to do any devilish craft in order not to have children.

The heaviest sin of the married is abortion, that is, the killing of children. Children born on holidays, in fasts, in a state of intoxication or after abortions are usually born sick, weak and sometimes even crippled. So do those who practice guarding, they cannot share the Holy Sacraments for two years, and sometimes they get nervous, as a punishment of the right Judge.

After birth, parents are obliged to take care, more than anything, of the education and good upbringing of their children. First, look for faithful godparents to the children they have given birth to. Then, to take them regularly to church, to share them with the Holy Sacraments every month, to teach them little prayers and good things, not to fool them with their words and deeds, for the folly that their parents do to their children is a grievous sin before God, with terrible consequences in the lives of children. Most children become bad in life because of the sins they learned from their childhood parents.

Cosmin Cernat had fun in the Caribbean

I chose the Dominican Republic and the USA as my holiday destinations for this year, where I stayed with my wife, Monica, and my daughter, Ayana, for four weeks. America is one of Monica's favorite destinations, and the Dominican Republic was my choice.

The first stop was in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic. From there, we set off for Punta Cana, where we stayed for ten days. Then I flew to the United States, where I spent three weeks in Dallas, Texas, with my sister-in-law and grandchildren. There, we took the opportunity and went on a short trip to Galvestone, a town on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico.

White sand, palm trees and reefs

Every place I visited was a tourist attraction worth visiting. We wanted to rest more and walk less during this holiday. We wanted to fully enjoy the beauty of nature and relax, to spend more time at the beach, to do various water sports, to go boating. The Dominican Republic is one of the most exotic islands in the Caribbean and offers many opportunities for relaxation and fun on the beach. White sandy beaches and palm trees, incredible azure water, coral reefs, exotic fish and dolphins are all part of the charm of the place. & Icircntr in a word & acircnt, Punta Cana translates to the beach and Pi & ntildea Colada.

The whole vacation was a dream one, and I felt great with Monica and my little girl, Ayana. What I think is most impressed me is the moment I noticed with the dolphins in Punta Cana. Ayana was happiest when she saw these creatures up close and was able to walk around them.

Quality fumes

One thing I enjoyed was the experience of smoking some quality cigarettes from sheets. The owner of the place where I was, the one who recommended them to us, by the way, is a Romanian from Maramureş. I really enjoyed this experience, and I bought a few packs of cigarettes for home, but especially for friends.

This was our first trip to the Caribbean. We will definitely spend another vacation there. And, each time, we will have different routes, because we want to visit as many places on the American continent. The Dominican Republic is a fascinating, romantic place that tourists should visit with their family.

You should not leave the Dominican Republic without buying the most valuable amber jewelry in the world, through transparency, color and the fact that the stones have captive insects in very good condition, which increases their value.

Another unique thing for the Dominican Republic is the larimar stone, opaque blue.

This prevents autumn allergies

It is said that those who suffer from allergies are the best indicators of the quality of the environment. However, their coexistence with allergens is an ordeal. If you are among the people who suffer from autumn allergy, here is what to do:

1. Alcohol and tobacco are harmful!
In most types of allergies, and especially in people with asthma, alcohol is a formidable enemy. Even its smell can trigger a crisis. Smoking is another risk factor. It is best to avoid even the company of smokers if you are a non-smoker.

2. The way you wash your clothes, that's how you breathe
Do you feel light dizziness at bedtime or when getting out of bed? The mites have taken over your bedroom! Both bed linen, underwear and curtains should be washed in the car only, at least 60 ° C, to get rid of allergens.

3. Plants are beautiful but unhealthy
The green potted wonders that you love so much and that you care for with so much love can hurt you. Their sap contains a substance that spreads into the surrounding air and which, once inhaled, triggers allergic reactions. Ficus, orchid, dwarf palms are among the most dangerous.

Measurement of ingredients

When we want to try a new recipe or simply measure some ingredients according to a certain weight, in the absence of a kitchen scale, we often face the problem that we do not know what and how much it weighs.

Recipes are usually written with different units of measurement (grams, glasses, spoons, etc.) and it is difficult for us to determine exactly the amount in grams of the appropriate ingredient. But keeping the proportions when preparing a recipe is crucial. That is why the team has prepared a suitable solution for this problem, by creating the following table - Measuring the ingredients without a scale.

"They waited for me after school, then I moved out of that high school."

Sebastian Dobrincu tells with difficulty about the harshest incident he experienced during the period when he was the victim of bullying: “The situation in which I was marginalized reached its peak when I was expected after hours.

After a round of insults that were hard to reproduce, I was threatened that I would be expected after school by the boy I was in conflict with and his group of friends. I got a few punches, and soon I called the police. I arrived at the department with my parents, I gave statements and soon I changed the high school ", Sebi remembers.

Since then, for the 22-year-old, things have changed significantly. The application she created is currently used by stars like Selena Gomez and has revenues of over 2 million dollars.

Cook with me

Contrary to many people's beliefs, this book is not about cooking. It's not about restaurants, fine dining, Michelin stars, elaborate recipes or minimalist plating. This time I am not in the position of juror, mentor or culinary authority. Today, here, I am just a gourmet, and my love for food is beyond my passion for cooking.

I wrote a book about myself, about my stories and memories related to the dishes I cook at home today, the ones that shaped my taste and the ones that now shape the taste of my children. Because, first of all, I am a man, with memories and dreams, and my girls' joy when we make bread together or my wife's smile when I prepare the dessert that bears her name does not compare to anything.

It is not a typical cookbook. It's not a string of recipes. It is rather a book about the important stories in my life, related to different recipes and dishes. From my grandmother's dishes, the ones I grew up with, to the recipes that marked my career, to the dishes that made me understand how important it is to cook with love and out of love.

This book is my story, told in the language of taste and it is for those who cook at home, out of passion or need, for those who put on the table the pieces of their loved ones… ”

What did Antonia do before she became famous?

In the USA, the young woman had to start from scratch and adapt to the new reality. From the beginning, he went through more complicated moments, because he had to try to get to know the people there, the places and the lifestyle. Although it was difficult for her, the artist continued to fight to achieve her desired dreams.

Antonia's parents could no longer help her financially and the singer had to fend for herself. She had to enter the world of fashion, participating in all kinds of catwalks, filming since adolescence. The star mentions that she did it not for pleasure, but for experience. She also admits that modeling has helped her achieve everything she has today.

"It was hard for me to adapt, but I moved quickly, I entered the world of fashion, considering that my parents could no longer help me with money. I had to make my own money. It was never my passion, I did it for the experience, but it brought me on the path I wanted, ”says Antonia.

The singer managed to achieve success due to her work. She gradually built her career in the music world, because she became a mother at the age of 20 and had a lot of problems in her marriage to Vicenzo Castellano, her first husband. Following this marriage, Maya was born, a little girl who took over all the beauty of her mother.

The two separated, but the divorce was very complicated, and the final verdict was known only last year.
