Still it is odd enough, as Bulgarian seismologists didn't detect any tremor at this time, moreover such which actually could be felt by humans

Bogdy, congratulations! We visited with my wife and baby last week the touristic village Arbanassi near Veliko Turnovo, where 6 years and a month ago she said "yes" to the very same question It was very romantic too and revived fond memories. Actually Arbanassi is an architectural reserve of 18-19th century Bulgarian renaissance buildings, so it's quite romantic and worth visiting. And last week I saw a lot of Romanian number plates both in Arbanassi and Veliko Turnovo. It looks like it is a popular touristic destination for the Bucharest region via Danube bridge.

Texting turns twenty

Quote:
Happy bday txt msg!

ON DECEMBER 3rd 1992 a young Vodafone engineer wished his boss "Merry Christmas" by SMS (short message service). This is widely regarded as the first ever text. (Tapping out 07734 on a calculator, turning it upside down and handing it to someone does not count.) Since then, texting has become a global phenomenon, growing particularly rapidly in the early-noughties when America finally embraced the medium and Chinese mobile subscriptions took off. According to Portio Research, a market-research firm, 7.8 trillion text messages were sent in 2011 and the number is expected to increase. The growth of social networks in recent years such as Facebook and Twitter (based on the SMS format) and services such as BlackBerry Messenger and WhatsApp (which offer free or cheap texts) are seen to herald the death of SMS. Portio predicts a decline in texting around 2016 as the mobile market reaches saturation and rival systems become more popular. Yet for the moment, people's thumbs continue to peck at the fingerpad to send texts, as the number of mobile subscribers worldwide continues to grow.

Visit Bratislava just to see how different is it from Austria just by crossing a order which is 1 km from the city center.

I have heard him speak, don't really remember what he sounds like and sorry if this ends up being a double post, normally I would copy paste this to my other post but I'm on the phone.

A football linesman beaten and kicked by teenage players during a youth match has died.
Three players aged between 15 and 16 were arrested after Richard Nieuwenhuizen collapsed at the Dutch club Nieuw Sloten in the town of Almere on Sunday.
The 41-year-old, whose own son had been playing in the game, had left after the match and was unaware anything was wrong with him, but he then returned to the club later that night and collapsed.
He died in hospital the next day. His team, Buitenboys, has not announced the exact cause of death, but Dutch TV station RTL said he had brain damage.
"You can't believe this could happen. That kids of 15 or 16 are playing football, you come to watch and see something like that," said Buitenboys chairman Marcel Oost.
"He did it every week. He enjoyed doing it. He was a real football man - he was always here."
Dutch sports minister Edith Schippers said: "It is absolutely terrible that something like this can happen on a Dutch sports field."
Parents and other volunteers regularly referee and officiate at sports matches involving their children in the Netherlands, where youth football and hockey is popular and well-organised.
Anton Binnenmars, of the Royal Netherlands Football Association, said: "It is too crazy for words that somebody involved in a sporting hobby becomes a victim of this kind of aggression."

When talking about Vienna, I was actually quite disappointed when I visited it. I went there straight from Budapest and in my opinion, Budapest is much nicer, at least in the city centre.
