George Santayana

George Santayana said, “Those who do not remember history are condemned to repeat it.”  We can forgive other nations for the past and for the wrong doings, but you should never forget. Memories should be kept alive in order not to repeat what happened and to always remind us not to repeat it. Warsaw uprise is a good example where Poland commemorated what happened 70 years ago last week. What are your thoughts? 

R.I.P. – Cowboy

Refentse

What a beautiful voice from Refentse and he is singing in the most beautiful language – Afrikaans, the second easiest language in the world to learn – after Dutch. This song is called: Sonvanger – suncatcher.

Magnus carlsen

Magnus Carlsen won the rapid section of the Paris Grand Chess Tour, but the day will be remembered for his outburst beginning, “What do you want me to do?” when Maurice Ashley suggested the final win had been less than smooth. Elsewhere the star was Alexander Grischuk, who did win three smooth games in a row, making it five wins in his last six games. He’s just one point behind Magnus with 18 rounds of blitz to follow, though he called that a big gap, given Magnus’ “idiotic ability to win many games in a row!”
