I have a funny idea : translating in Kurdish the I Ching Book, and write a short guide about it in Kurdish.

I think it has never been done until now :-?

Now the 2 exhausting monsters started to eat. The male did not want, and refused chicken. But today I opened for them a can of oily tuna and he was the one who eat quite all the plate. :D

A BRILLIANT IDEA :ymapplause:

But will you have time between doing your teaching and all the preparation, marking that entails and writing your novels (still waiting for the English version)

I need to learn I Ching properly, do you know of any easy to use, idiots guide?

Not that I am lazy but most training manuals contain about 10% information and 90% rubbish just to make the book larger so that they can charge more for it X(

The original 'Little White Book' that came with Tarot cards is an excellent example - the "LWB" contained all the basic knowledge needed to interpret the cards but now cards come in enormous boxes with equally enormous books just so they can charge enormous amounts of money =))

I have noticed young females in most animals often seem to advance better that males :D

Females are generally more intelligent :ymdevil:

Cards don't exist in the original I Ching. You only need 3 coins. Cards are just a way to make people buy expensive pack :D

There are many translations and manual. Alfred Huang, James Legge and Richard Wilhelm's are the most famous in English, though quite ancient.

Text of Wilhelm's translation are online, in English :

http://wengu.tartarie.com/wg/wengu.php?l=Yijing

You can even use it online, but I find better to make your own answers with coins. It is easy :

http://www.wikihow.com/Consult-the-I-Ch ... ng-3-Coins

When you know how to build your hexagram and how to read it, you can check the meaning easily.

So at first, I Ching is simple. But you never end to study it and discover new things.

Iraqi government staff told to down tools in heatwave

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has ordered all government staff to take Thursday off work because of exceptionally high temperatures.

Forecasters expect air temperatures in the capital, Baghdad, to reach 50C (122F) on Thursday afternoon.

Heatwave conditions are also expected in the cities of Basra and Mosul.

The extreme heat can cause chronic power shortages, depriving homes and businesses of electricity and air conditioning for parts of the day.

Near record temperatures are being experienced across the region and have also affected parts of Europe in recent weeks.\


How hot has it been where you are?

Are the kittens alright?

Air conditioned is working in my house, for my electricity depends on the next hospital : not many cut off power, then.

In Iraq situation is worse, the service are poor because of sabotages and corruption.

Kittens are ok, I post on fb a video showing them front on a cats channel video : as for kids, when you want rest, put them front of a screen.

You have probably eaten some with Kurds, because it is very common in Middle East : it is goat cheese, usually served in irregular hard pieces, like pebbles or small stones.

The main thing about it is its salty taste, so salty that you have to let it soak one night in water. The Turkish one I buy is not so salty but quite, alla the same.

I have never forgotten one of my friend's salad

His new wife spent ages cutting up the salad into dainty selections and then poured 1/2 inch of salt on it :shock:

It looked similar to snow and I could not eat it :-s not often I refuse food but I never use much salt in anything apart from when I am spell-casting :ymdevil:

It is enclosed by walls but in any case, Pirouette watch them and do not let them go far. And they don't go far from her and me…
