That is quite normal, even in England and Holland. I love my nan, she lives in Friesland, Netherlands, and visits me in Austria at least 4 times a year, and I visit her and stay for weekends whenever I´m passing...

Yeah I know as I said by this example I don't think it is same in all families, of course it is not, but I have also many friends who hardly ever visit their grandparents.

And you might be right that it is probably a catholic thing, Czechs always say that family is more important for Slovaks than for Czechs.

Btw, I was basically raised not just by my parents but also by grandparents, I used to spend with them so much time when I was little, usually after school, then everyday my parents would come to pick me up and we had lunch together.

Btw, why doesn't Estonia indicate that it's in the EU? This is all they put.

Enviro lawn mowers. They do this in Los Angeles. I've seen it several times. It's pretty funny.

well not everyone can afford a nanny. when parents work there's a kindergarden for kids, and for some occasions out of work time grandparents watch them. that's how it works in SLO.

btw I like how names of countries are displayed in the country official language now on GM.

And in the whole civilized world.

Plus, some parents feel more safe let theit children with their grandparents rather with a nanny.

I think most grandparents are happy they can take care of their grandchildren.

About 5.8 by Richter scale earthquake just shook Sofia (about 20 minutes ago, about 03:00). It felt quite terrible and many people are now outside on the streets and larger open spaces...

P.S. and several lighter aftershocks, the last one just seconds ago...

P.S.2 strongest aftershock now at about 04:30 local time, about 4.7, but quite shorter...

I heard it was strongly felt all around the Balkans and abroad - reports from Bucharest say it woke people there too. Also in northern Greece, Macedonia, eastern Serbia...

P.S.3 No more sleep this night... another serious aftershock about 05:15, 3.9

I heart about this earthquake. Bad news for Bulgaria. I alos heart there is no damage to houses and so on. Seems bulgarias houses are stable and can endure such an earthquake. But what I really really hope is that the Struma motorway has not got any damage. it would be just too bad if the motorway after so many years without damage would now have gooten cracks. I wish a report as soon as possible, chillo.

I don't know about the motorway, but there are aparently two houses that completely colapsed in Pernik area, many others with minor damages. In Sofia one commie block's foundations in Nadezhda quarter has suffered damages and it is twisted and declared dangerous for living, many roofing elements and chimneys are damaged too. Hopefully nobody died or was seriously hurt. About 60 people went to hospital because of small traumas caused by panic evacuation on stairhouses and also of heart problems cause by the horror.

If the motorway withstood this without damage, it is the best motorway in europe.

:facepalm:

@Chilio: I'm glad that you are ok and that the first reports say that there aren't victims. You had quite a night I heard from the Romanian TV that the earthquake was also felt in Bucharest. All I can say is that I didn't feel anything in Timisoara.

And something else, you will delete the threads in the Bulgarian section, so i will ask here. Is the econimical situation in Bulgaria still so bad. Any time I call to bulgaria people say it is very bad and they barely live, there is no work and nothing? Doesn't the situation finally improv? I get such reports from Blagoevgrad area.

Unemployment levels are highest for many many years. But I would not say the situation is so bad, it's for sure not worse than the 90ies. Maybe it is worse for business, not for the common worker.
And I would not delete threads in the Bulgarian section unless they are in the inappropriate place/subsection (in which case I move them, not delete them), doubling other threads or complete offtopic. But that's what you usually do

Why is it so bad, what are the reasons? I thought Gerb is a good government, they are doing a lot in the Infrastructure section, but why are the other areas suffering so much?

That's too bad, first Italy than Bulgaria.
A popular Italian radio host already blamed Mayans and the end of the world...
