Hallo, hallo, halloooo!!

Here I am ... again as always ... busy and late. But you are all of you in my heart and I will never forget you! <3 <3 <3
We have got summer here and the temperature is between 22 - 28 and I enjoy it a lot and feel much healthier. Last year has been a very heavy year for me but I see the light in front of me now. The reason for my heavy year has been because Hanna has been stalked by her old boyfriend and he has
stalked and harassed Hanna a lot and it went so long that we were forced to report him to the police. After that we have been to trial twice. He has been convicted. Now it's just one more trial and I really hope it will be in a soon future so we can go forward again. But no one can understand this situation, how it has affected Hanna in her daily life. And I have got feelings that I never thought I had. Now I understand that parents can do anything when someone harms themes children. In the same time I have finish my master degrees in leadership and development in social and he alt care.

As always I work a lot but now I have just 3 nights in front of me, then I will have holiday for 4 weeks!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Then I will sleep in the morning, do nothing ... just relax at our summer house, eat delicious food and drink some glas of wine ;)

I hope All of you will have a nice summer and maybe write some letter to me here ;)
BEHNAM!!!! When should we talk over Skype???

Many hugs from your old finish friend Veronica

Hi Veronica,

Thank you very much for visiting this thread. Sad to hear that Hanna has had some problems with his previous boyfriend. Actually, I knew, since you had told me while chatting on Skype. I hope it will be finished soon.

Congratulations on receiving your MS degree. It is a great success.

Seems the Sun does not distribute its lights fairly, because we have got a lot of sunlight here in Tehran that the temperature is +28 centigrade at nights and +40 centigrade on days. I wish I had something; like a very large reflector, to reflect some of the light to your country. Oh, how do you think about a research project on managing the Sun's light? Suppose you hold a coin in front of your eye. It will block your eye and then will narrow your field of view. We can block the Sun's light partially. The Earth does it when eclipsing! {-:

Please keep the contact with us. I hope to here more about you.

All the best,
Behnam, 14 July, 2014

Postby behnam » Wed Jul 16, 2014 1:09 pm

Hi friends,

How many people view this thread at every 24 hours? Statistics show this thread is viewed 1000 times at every 24 hours! This is a great success for us, isn't it? How can we increase the number of viewers? We should motivate people to view the thread regularly, and recommend it to others. How can we motivate people? I think my new strategy; filling the blanks, which helps the English learners improve their language skills can be motivating. I hope so!

Until now, this thread has been viewed more than 290000 times. This is a big success in my opinion!

Thank you for viewing this thread.

علی ای همای رحمت تو چه آیتی خدا را / که به ماسوا فکندی همه سایه هما را

دل اگر خداشناسی همه در رخ علی بین / به علی شناختم من به خدا قسم خدا را

به خدا که در دو عالم اثر از فنا نماند / چو علی گرفته باشد سر چشمه بقا را

مگر ای سحاب رحمت تو بباری ارنه دوزخ / به شرار قهر سوزد همه جان ماسوا را

برو ای گدای مسکین در خانه علی زن / که نگین پادشاهی دهد از کرم گدا را

به جز از علی که گوید به پسر که قاتل من / چو اسیر تست اکنون به اسیر کن مدارا

به جز از علی که آرد پسری ابوالعجائب / که علم کند به عالم شهدای کربلا را

چو به دوست عهد بندد ز میان پاکبازان / چو علی که میتواند که بسر برد وفا را

نه خدا توانمش خواند نه بشر توانمش گفت / متحیرم چه نامم شه ملک لافتی را

بدو چشم خون فشانم هله ای نسیم رحمت / که ز کوی او غباری به من آر توتیا را

به امید آن که شاید برسد به خاک پایت / چه پیامها سپردم همه سوز دل صبا را

چو تویی قضای گردان به دعای مستمندان / که ز جان ما بگردان ره آفت قضا را

چه زنم چونای هردم ز نوای شوق او دم / که لسان غیب خوشتر بنوازد این نوا را

«همه شب در این امیدم که نسیم صبحگاهی / به پیام آشنائی بنوازد آشنا را»

ز نوای مرغ یا حق بشنو که در دل شب / غم دل به دوست گفتن چه خوش است شهریارا
