On this day in 1907 the King of Serbia Petar I Karadjordjević puts the "cornerstone" for the building of the National Assembly in Belgrade ( "Skupstina" ).



The first session of the Parliament of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in the new building was held in october 1936.
Skupština has assumed command spared German bombing in 1941 (Hitler, Goering) and NATO bombing in 1999 (Clinton, Blair, Chirac, Schroeder).

Like Acropolis in Athens. People who lived nearby felt safe, because the Nazis wouldn't bomb the ancient monument.

But in April 1941 Hitler ordered bombing of National Library of Serbia.



Over 300000 books burned. Books that represented the Serbian cultural heritage.  :(

In Belgrade started 61. Book Fair.


Although the local media keeps telling that Serbs do not read books, they are (especially at the Fair) is very expensive for a poor country like Serbia.


Honorary guests from Iran. The message of the Fair: "Books in the hands" :)

Al, how much is the admission to tour a castle, or is it
free for visitors?  Wouldn't you just love to take a metal
detector to a castle's grounds and see what you could dig up?

In California where we used to live, we'd go metal detecting
up in "Gold Country"  , spend the day 4- wheeling off road,
take a picnic lunch, the dogs, and I never found anything.
On State land where there were parks, (State Parks) anything
you dug up metal detecting had to be turned in to the Park Rangers
and they would give it to the State.   Historical artifacts would be
put in Visitor Museums. 

I just know there are treasures still buried  Castle
grounds.  I'd like to dig up a big jewel encrusted sword,
and some of the King and Queens jewelry, along with other
artifacts.

At the request of pupils at a village Primary school in Serbia, the time has come and journalist Dragan M. Todorovic writer of the historian novel  "Where is the Nemanjic`s treasure ? ("Kud` se dede Nemanjića blago ?").
So, Windy, you're not the only one who would seek the treasure. Here children also want to search for the treasure of the famous Serbian medieval dynasty - Nemanjic.

My metal detector wore out over the years, it had
a setting on it where you could ascertain "ferrous and non-ferrous"
metals, but I dug everything up when my metal detector beeped.
I found lots of garbage buried deep in the mountain forests.  I did
though Al Bundy found a perfect condition cobalt blue glass bottle,

Circa: 1905  - Bromo Seltzer - Emerson Drug Company - Baltimore , MD

is on it, raised lettering in the glass.  I put my loose change in it.   I had
a hit with the metal detector, it was a bunch of buried horseshoes  and the
bottle oddly enough was at the bottom of about 30 horseshoes buried about
3 feet down.    It wasn't on government land so I brought it home.    I've
heard that going to a public beach is where people find lots of jewelry and
coins, I never even found a penney, or a quarter (.01 cent piece - .25 cent piece)

I have interestingly enough though, found a man's pocket knife  twice ,
just glancing down at the ground.    When I'd be in the mountain forests
the one thing though I didn't want to happen, was get a beep off the metal
detector and start digging and find a skeleton buried.  The beep would be
from a belt buckle.   

Sometimes we have to let the inner-child out in us, metal detecting
is  a great way, who wouldn't want to find buried treasure?  :)

I always try and go to book fairs!  I've gotten some really good
reference books that way.  The book fairs here are used books
but that's fine with me.  The "Friends of the Library"  group lets
you stuff as many books in a grocery bag as you can fit for $5.00 USD

I'll go to the book fair with you Al Bundy and hope to find a book
called :   The Other by Thomas Tryon

He only wrote two books and I have his other one I got for free
when the book fair closed for the day and literally threw out all
their left over books!   

One lady at the book fair here was flipping through a book and
found a $10 bill and she donated it .   I like books, real books
printed on paper.

Hi Al,  the "friends of the library"  is a volunteer group
that helps the library get old books off their shelves,
raise a bit of money at the "Friends of the Library charity sale"
to keep the libraries going with so many budget cuts.   They
always want to close down libraries in bad financial times
because they think they're not needed or used much.

The book I scored for free, literally laying on the ground
because the dumpster was over flowing with books they
threw out,  the author, Thomas Tryon  only wrote 2 books.

Harvest Home

The Other

I found Harvest Home, it's an out of print book and I enjoyed it very much.
Parts of it reminded me of this boonie town I live in.   Other outsiders like
myself we chuckle to each other and say... "ever read  the book
Harvest Home" ?  Then we all chuckle. 

Al, just remembered.... if you see the book  "Square Foot Gardening"
by Mel Bartholomew, grab it if it's a good price.  It will be a thick
hard back book.   You can grow a big garden in a very small space.

Mel Bartholomew - Founder of Square Foot Gardening

www.melbartholomew.com

In his book, he's mathematically figured out how many
such and such vegetables can grow in a one foot wide by one foot long
(one square foot = 12 inches X 12 inches )  and you follow his method
and can get a lot of veges growing.    Great for small backyards, or large
yards to really get a good bounty, harvest.    It's a backyard gardening book.

Harvest Home by Thomas Tryon is Fiction

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvest_Home_%28novel%29

The Other by Thomas Tryon also Fiction

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Other


Al, if you also see Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
grab that too.   It's about 1,100 pages.  Fiction

I don't read hardly any fiction, but  I enjoyed harvest home and atlas shrugged.

In Harvest Home, the post office in the book reminded me of the one here LOL!!

"Inner Side of the Wind" is read on both sides, turning as klepsidra, while at the center of the label side by the writer himself placed in the middle of the book, all that remains can not be reached is not in existence even in absence. So Pavic like to think about your work that can also read between. Pavic's novel is the story between the two continents, Europe and Asia, who raised his imagination as you have defined our history.
"A novel about Harry and Leander," the secret of love and looking back in time, about love between past and present, which is rarely happy and it is always necessary, relying on old Musejev Epilion and a legend that connects what you can not connect: two shores of the Bosphorus, the two sexes and genders, two beings and two civilizations, different ages and destinies.

M. Pavic is on  of the most popular playwright in Serbia.
