Hello Dear Behnam;
I'm fine. How are you?
I'm agreed with you about Shirazi. I have been there for 2 years and realized that they are really lazy! :lol: They have a famous proverb : Chay Chaman Chamroon :lol: Chay is tea, Chaman means anywhere like park and Chamroon , as maybe you know, is the north area of Shiraz that has a sweet and exquisite climate. I absolutely refuse other ubiquitous things about peoples like Isfahani, Rashti and others . But I believe that Shirazi is lazy till he or she show me he isn't lazy :mrgreen:

Behnam; I have a piece of advice for you:Marry with a Rashti woman If you like delicious foods! Rashti women are best in cookery! They are famous for their delicious foods such as MirzaGhasemi, BaghlaGhatogh, TasKabab and so many other. My mom is one of the best in the cookery and I really love foods she cooks.

Very thank you for your kindness Dear Behnam. I would be grateful if you shared with me your resources for IELTS. Actually I think I haven't enough time to be prepare for IELTS and GRE! Two years is very low! :-( I'm really regretful for those years I wasted.

However, I'm now studying some books and using some programs : Grammer In Use , Vocabulary In Use, Verbal Advantage by Charles Harrington Elster, THE ULTIMATE PHRASAL VERB BOOK, Word Perfect , Collocations in use and ESL Podcasts.And I watch a movie everyday with English subtitle. sometimes I watch some TV shows such as The Big Bang Theory or The Wire. But I really want to use a program that has all English skills improvement courses. Still I haven't found that perfect program.

I think I must stop writing now until I improved my writing. I think my writing now is very bad and may annoy you. Absolutely I don't want that. I understood my writing is terrible when i saw your pretty nice writings and I'm at the lower grade than you . So I think I must stop writing at least two months and work hardly on my English. I read you posts and enjoy them but write very little until I confident of my English.

But Dear Behnam, I request you to recommend me any useful resource or program that can help me for success in IELTS or GRE. Thank you very much.

Best Regards.
your little sister and friend, Shaghayegh.

Hi Behnam,

How are you? How is Ramadan with you? Do you spend it with your family? Do you visit your relative?

Many thanks for your off msg and your post here. They meant to me a lot, you don't believe how much they made me happy. I am glad that there is someone in this world cares about me. :-) Please don't worry about me, I am very well but I just don't find a good time for chat but be sure that you are in my mind and heart always.

Wish you the best,
Amal

Practising IELTS SKILLS

Post by behnam » Wed Jul 17, 2013 11:19 am

Dear friends,

How are you? I hope you are fine. Yesterday was the hottest day of this summer in Tehran. I hope so. It was 41 °C, according to what the weather-forecasting organization said. Today is also hot, very hot actually, but not as hot as yesterday. It is Ramadan and like the majority of people I am fasting. In Ramadan Muslims are ordered to avoid eating and drinking, but this is the first feature of Ramadan. Although it is quite difficult for people to avoid eating and drinking for about 16:30 hours(in Tehran), this is the first step of a real fasting. Muslims are also expected to control their eyes, ears, and tongues during Ramadan. They should avoid sinful fantasizing, negative thoughts, and bad imagination. The first step is easy, but controlling senses and thoughts are really difficult. My Muslim friends, good luck with fasting. May God bless you! Please remember me when saying your prayers.

Dear Romana, nursing is a rewarding job, and nurses are respectful. They are also kind and patient. Nursing is emotionally eroding too. They are living with patients in hospitals and looking ofter them. This is really difficult. That is why nursing requires many skills and involves a lot of efforts and attempts .I wish you success in you job.

Dear Shaghayegh, your friendly post made me extremely happy. You are very kind. Thank you very much for your sincerity and kindness. I've heard about good taste of some special food in the North of Iran. I agree with you about the skillfulness of Rashti ladies. I follow your advice and use the maximum benefits of the permission which God has given to men in the holy Koran. Therefore, a complete fulfillment for a man is having four wives. A Tabrizi for keeping the generation going(having children), a Kurd for work, A Rashti for cooking, and finally a Shirazi lady for joy and pleasure(Golgasht va Khoshgozarani). :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear Shaghayegh, never give up writing! Writing makes your passive vocabularies become active. When you are writing, you are practising excellently, since you use what you have learned. I strongly recommend writing regularly. It may look difficult when you start doing something regularly, but little by little you will get the hang of it and it will turn to become easy and interesting. Honestly speaking, writing is crucially important for all IELTS candidates. When you are writing, not only are you directly practising writing skill, but also you are indirectly practising other skills; speaking, reading, and listening. Anyway, frankly speaking, that is wrong to stop writing!

Dear Romana and Shaghayegh, there are many sites which provide candidates with IELTS exam. However, some of them are really useful. For example, when it comes to IELTS preparation, (australianetwork.com/studyenglish) is wonderful, excellent, fantastic! I don't know how to describe the effectiveness of this site. A very kind and beautiful lady teaches almost all skills perfectly. I am sure you will enjoy it.

When it comes to practising writing, in my opinion, (http://www.ielts-blog.com/ielts-writing) is really useful.

For downloading some IELTS speaking samples vedios, juts go to http://WWW.youtube.com and search for them. You will find some real IELTS interviews.

I have to leave right now. I hope that helps.

Please do not hesitate to write more and discuss IELTS-based issues. I hope to hear more from you soon.

All the best,
Behnam, 17 July, 2013

Hi Amal,

How are you? I hope you are fine. Fasting may make you tired and bored. I wish you strength and patience. May God help you and support you!

Thank you very much for informing me about yourself. The situation in your country is not normal. New things happen everyday. When I read headlines and see Damascus is under rocket attack, I become worried about you. Please keep in contact and post regularly, no matter your posts are short. A 'hi' from you eases my worry.

When you are breaking fasting in the evening(Azan time) please remember me. Please pray for me when you are saying your prayers. I am praying for you too.

I wish you happiness and success.


All the best,

Dear Friends

The small part of body can makes the biggest corruption. The corruption of tongue can't be amended . If you say something that hurt your best friend, especially when say something in front of others to your friend. You are not able to taken the word back. Your regret can't amend the relation between you and your friend.

I don't know why people don't control their tongue , when they are among their friend , or relatives they make a joke and offend others. Sometime we heard about something and narrate it to other while we are not sure what we heard is truth.

Look at the following story.

There was a good man(scholar) who was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem. One day an acquaintance met the great scholar and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?"
"Hold on a minute," the scholar replied. "Before telling me anything I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
"Triple filter?"
"That's right," the scholar continued. "Before you talk to me about my friend it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say. That's why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"
"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and..."
"All right," said the scholar. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?"
"No, on the contrary..."
"So," the scholar continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left: the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?"
"No, not really..."

Take care
Mohsen

Hi Vernoica,

Welcome back, Hope you are fine and doing well, this is one my best summer I have had. I didn't doing special things, but everything is going ahead according my desire. When I feel that I use my time according my schedule, I enjoy my life. Off course I had been invited to several wedding ceremonies before Ramadan and also dinner party during Ramadan. I enjoyed being with my friends and relatives
Ramadan is a month that we don't eat from sunrise to sunset , so I lost a few grams till now. I hope to lose 4 kgs overweight till the end of Ramadan.
I checked the website http://worldofshape.com/resultat/rosta and voted you. Of course I didn't look at your body I scrolled down the page rapidly and ticked the Veronica Holmström, you know that a Muslim does not look at the women body. I hope you win 2500Eur, I don't need a sock or something else . your happiness is mine.

Good Luck,
Mohsen

Post by behnam » Tue Jul 23, 2013 7:17 am

Hi Veronica,

Welcome back my dear old friend! Thank you for posting here and informing us about yourself and your family. You made me extremely happy. I wish you happy moments with your family in your summer house.

A few minutes ago, I visited the site and voted for you. You look great! I wish you would win, but I wish you chose Iran to visit! China is a big country, it has got its beauty, but Iran is an ancient four-season country. You should put visiting Iran in your list! Anyway, maybe next time you will choose Iran. I hope so! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Quite the contrary to Mohsen, I looked at all women and their bodies carefully! I am Muslim too, but a different version of Muslims! I am also fasting, but I don't think looking at a lady's body without having any sexual desire may damage my fasting! God has created those beautiful bodies to be seen and then to appreciate his mightiness. :lol: :lol: :lol:

In comparison with me, Mohsen is an angel. He is a real Muslim. Honestly speaking, I cannot control my eyes as much as Mohsen does. You know, my eyes are sensitive to beauty. :lol: :lol: :lol:
Dear Veronica, try your best to make some time to join us and write regularly. I hope so!


To other friends,

Hi! How are you? I've missed you terribly. Unfortunately, my ISP(Internet Service Provider) does not provide me and other service receivers with the Internet connection anymore! Simply, the Internet doesn't work at home. Actually, it has been disconnected for three days, and I don't know when it is going to get connected. I have not got the Internet connection at home. I was also so busy with meetings and tasks at my workplace that I couldn't find time to visit the thread. That is really bad! At the moment, I am using the Net in my office. I never use my office connection for chatting. That's why I am unusually absent these days.



All the best,

Hi Behnam, Mohsen and All other known and unknown persons!
Thank you for your kindness to me and your votes. I promise ... If I win I coming to Iran also! You know I want to do that travel :)
As Mohsen said ... he can loose some gram or kilo under the time of Ramadan ... good. The reason to overweight in the vestern is that we don't have Ramadan :) :) :) Thats why we have to be activ in a "loose fat" group for 30 days ;)
I will be back very soon and till that: Visit the website: http://worldofshape.com/resultat/rosta Schroll down the site. Wrire your e-mail adress on the empty line. Click my name Veronica Holmström and you will give your vote to me. Then cklick ... " klicka här för att rösta" which means you will send the vote. Thank you All and see you in Iran if I WIN !!!!
Your friend Veronica

Hi Veronica,

How are you?

Thanks for your reply.

My summer this year is a little bit boring since we couldn't go out or do anything. However, I'd learned how to crochet so it takes my time.

About Andrew, please if you chatted with him, would you tell him my hello?

Best wishes,
Amal

Boiling hot!

Post by behnam » Wed Jul 24, 2013 10:49 am

Hi friends,

Today is the hottest day of the year in Tehran! It is 41°C! From 1953 until now, the maximum recorded temperature in Tehran has been 42.6°C . Therefore, today the temperature is so close to the maximum amount of it in 60 years! In Tehran, I don't remember such a hotness. It is extremely hot, boiling hot, scorching hot...hot...hot...hot! It is unfair that people in Europe have hot ladies, but we have hot weather! :lol: {-: :lol:

Dear Shaghayegh, how are you? Why don't you write anymore? Haven't you got access to the Internet?

Dear Maniya, what has happened to you? I hope you are all well. Please keep on writing!

Dear Amal, that's very kind of you to say those kind things about me. The problem must be handled by the ISP. He has promised to fix it tonight. I hope he will keep his promise. You know, when the weather is unusually hot, people have an excuse to break their promises. :lol:

Dear Veronica, thank you for your kind reply. Please stay with us as long as possible. I've already voted for you. How many times should I vote?

About losing weight, I disagree with Mohsen. Ramadan doesn't help the majority of fasting people lose weight. On the contrary, they gain some weight! In Ramadan, most people eat more than that they eat in other months. It's against of the philosophy of fasting, but facts shouldn't be denied. Although they avoid eating and drinking from before sunset to after sunset, they compensate in the nighttime. {-: :lol: {-:

Mohsen and I are both Muslims. Although we are in different cities, we are both living in Iran. People around me get fat in Ramadan, whereas people around him lose some weight! He didn't look at ladies bodies, but I looked at them carefully. These differences are noticeable. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear Behnam,

The Islamic instructions was not founded by What people think or believe , the instructions are extracted from holy Quran and narrations of prophet and his family.
If each believer wants to act according to what he/she get ,what he/she thinks ,there will be no integrated things that we call it religion.

May be some instructions don't seem apparently reasonable or scientific ,but the instructions were enacted or made by a power which is beyond the man's ability.

The first creature who disobliged God was Satan . Satan said to God " I think I am better than man and I never bow down in front of man."

The second one was Adam which said "I don't think that that fruit is harmful for me , everything which is create by God is beatiful and useful for body , he didn't have any reasonable idea to avoid eating ,so he went close to the tree and ate it.

The third one is Behnam which said "I am also fasting, but I don't think looking at a lady's body without having any sexual desire may damage my fasting! God has created those beautiful bodies to be seen and then to appreciate his mightiness, so he looked at the bodies carefully" :lol: :lol: :lol:

it is merit night of Ramadan 19th ,many people stay awake until morning , it is really enjoyable,the maximum reception from God.

Have a good night
Mohsen

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are fine.

Mohsen, I loved your way of writing. Thank you for mentioning to my name, and making analogy between Satan, Adam and me! I do agree with you. You are absolutely right. I was really kidding!

Just to inform you, so sorry to tell you that I am not feeling well today! I am worried about my little kids and my young wife! Why?

Last week, I visited my doctor and he wanted me to have a checkup. He suggested that I visit a heart specialist too. Today, I went to a special clinic to have my heart tested. Heart Function Test in rest and Echocardiography were both OK, but, according to the doctor, Heart Function Test in sport( Walking on a treadmill while some wires were connected to my chest and a device which showed the graphs..) was not OK! I didn't feel any pain on my chest while doing the exercise on the tradmill. The doctor said, "Although you didn't feel pain, your vessels are narrow. Your heart doesn't work properly. There are some noticeable noises in the graphs. You have to have Angiography as soon as possible."

I am shocked and disappointed! Sorry to share such bad things with you. I am ready to die, since I am tired of this boring world, but to be honest, I am really worried about my family! They will face with many problems! :-( :-( :-(

On Tuesday night I will stay in Hospital and on Wednesday the doctor is going to visualize the inside of blood vessels in my heart. I haven't made final decision yet, because I am shocked and I am also negotiating with some friends who are involved in medical science. I want you to pray for me at these special nights. I want you to pray for my family at these sacred holy moments in Ramadan. I want you to forgive me! I want you not to forget me!

Cry my eyes it's leaving time Even rocks and stones cry when leaving friends! I will miss you all the time! :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

All the best,

My DEAREST FRIEND BEHNEM :-D

I read your sad words, my heart with you.

NARROW VESSELS ARE NORMAL THESE DAYS.

Sorry Behnam, I really can't understand exactly what is the surgery that you are going to have on Wednesday, what I understood your vessels are narrow and the blood cannot flow as normal. Is it right?

If that is right I have many many people who mad this surgery one of them put 7 pillars in his vessels after years he made an open heart now he is 67 years old although he is heavy smoker.

During last 4 months 3 friends of mine have this surgery and they become better than before.

Believe me don't be afraid I'm sure God will be with you, because you are honest and helpful man you are the kind of people who effect all the people around you.

My wife and I pray for you. :-D

We are waiting for your reply.

We wish you good health, happiness and long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long life life life life life life life life life life life life life life.

لا حول و لا قوة الا بالله... حسبنا الله و نعم الوكيل

Dear Behnam, I read your mail and I am really sad and shocked, I didn't believe what I read and I read the mail many times just to believe. May god help you and be with you and your family. While reading, I remembered my father -his situation was just like yours- and thank god the operation was very successful and inshallah yours will be successful too. Dear, please don't worry, the Angiography is something too easy and inshallah everything after it will be OK. You are strong and you always will be inshallah.

In fact, my mother saw me sad, very sad, so she asked me about the reason and I told her, she felt sad too and started to pray for you.

Please don't talk about death and such things, inshallah, you will live long and see your grandchildren and you will be happy always, just rely on god and he will help you inshallah.



My thoughts and prayer are with you.
Please relax and assure your wife that you will be good.

May god be with you and best wishes,
Amal

*I don't know why I didn't see your post here although it was before my post!!!! This is very strange!!! You and your health are more important than anything...

Dear Behnam,

There are lots of people who are being checked up by Angiography to see if the vessel is narrow or blocked . Nowadays the heart hospitals are in traffic of people waiting for Angiography. This is undoubtly because of changing in nourishment ,feeding bed foods , eating too much ready- made food ,fried foods and having less moving .
People who feel a pain in chest are instantly prescribed for doing Angiography. There is no danger ,don't be worry . You are a vigorous man. I saw some people who did Angiography ,people who are elder than you and weaker , they are in health now.
I am sure there is no serious problem in your heart and you will be beside your family for long life .
All of your friends pray for you.

offer my condolence

Tonight is the most sorrowful night for Muslims, because the man of justice and humanity,the commander of faithful, the father of eloquence, the caretaker of the orphans, the shelter of the needy and the perfect of all humans after Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw). Born in the House of Allah, Holy Kaaba, and martryed in the House of Allah, Masjid-e-Kufa. He died on the 21st day of Ramadan 40 A.H. and buried in Najaf al-Ashraf (Iraq).

On the 19th of the month of Holy Ramadan (Mah e Ramzan) of the year 40 A.H, Imam Ali (pbuh) came to the mosque in Kufa for his morning prayers. Imam Ali (pbuh) gave the call for prayer (Azaan) and became engaged in leading the congregation. Abd-al-Rahman ibn Muljam pretending to pray, stood just behind Imam Ali (pbuh), and when Imam Ali (pbuh) was in a state of prostration, Abd-al-Rahman ibn Muljam dealt a heavy stroke with his sword, inflicting a deep wound on Imam Ali's (pbuh) head,This was the time when Imam Ali (as) uttered his famous words : "Fuzto warab-il-Kaaba" - "By the Rab of Kaaba, I am successful".

Imam Ali (pbuh) suffered from his wound for three days, and He (pbuh) passed away on 21st of the month of Ramadan (Mah e Ramzan) at an age of 63 year

Hi friends,

It's 10:45 am and dear Behnam is supposed to be in the operation room from 10:30. Hope everything's going well there with him.

He sent a sms to me and other friends and informed us about the operation time. He asked me to mention his words here. He'll stay two days in the ICU and will be transferred to the general ward after it. (God wiling)

He said " I've loved the people of my life with two-thirds(2/3) of my heart, after the operation I'm going to be kind with 3/3 of my heart! :-)

Dear Behnam you have one of the kindest hearts of the world, all your friends love you and pray for you.
Hope to see you among us again very soon.

Hi Behnam,

There are a lot of feelings and thoughts in my heart and mind, I have never felt something like this before. I don't know if words can translate my feelings but I feel that my body is here in Syria meanwhile I am with you there. You know, I had never complained about the distance between us because I had known that you are always in my heart and near me. However, now, I really dislike it, I hate it. It kills me that we are separated. I really wish I could hold your hand right now and tell you that everything is OK. I wish I could look at your eyes and support you.

You don't leave my thoughts even for one second, I am always praying for you.

I know that you are a strong person. Therefore, I am sure that you will recover soon inshallah...

Please come back to us soon, we are waiting you.

May god help you
Best wishes,
Amal

Dear Moroo,

Behnam is in hospital. Due to Angiography results on Wndsday his blood vessels had serious narrowing problem and Dr recognized that he had to have an open heart operation. As I have written, yesterday morning he had the operation,( Hope it's been a successful one!) and now he should be in ICU.

We have no connection with him, his cell phone is off. Hope everything's ok with him.

Hi dear friends,

Hope you are all fine.

Finally today I got news from our dear Behnam. His cell phone was off till this morning, we all were so worried and waiting and waiting and waiting. Thank to god, today he sent me this message:


"Hi, this is Behnam. I'm alive and I'm in the heart department. I'm very well, thank you for praying. I may not reply every message, but I'm well."

I wish i could talk with him, but I'm afraid I'll bother him. I'll inform you in case I got any other news from him.

Hi again,

guess what!!! I spoke with dear Behnam right now. :-) Finally I heard his voice again. You cannot imagine how I was feeling, oh godddddddd, you can't imagine how happy I am. :-D :-D :-D

He explained me the story, that he didn't feel any pain in his heart, going for a regular check up Dr noticed sth abnormal and asked him to do Angiography to make sure of his health. But the results showed several serious narrowing in the vessels.

He said, one vessel from 4 places (2 places 90%) and one place in another vessel (sum=5) were blocked. He believed it's been a miracle that god Helped him. Oh thank godddddddddd

He said the operation has been successful and till now everything have been ok but he has some pain.

He has to stay at hospital at least one week.

He said Hi to you all and thanked you for your prayers.

Hope he gets totally well very soon and come back to his friends*

All the best,
Eli

Hi my great valuable friends,

How are you? I hope you are doing well.

I am at home now. The first thing I am doing is checking the thread. I don't know what to say and how to mention to the things are in my thoughts now. I think 'thank you' is not a proper phrase to say, but what should I say? I really don't know!

It is not an illusion to say that I personally felt and saw God's special attention and support. I REALLY FELT IT! God, THANK YOU!

I felt the closeness of your hearts with myself. THANK YOU for praying and caring. You are like some valuable treasures.

Many stories I've got to tell you. This was a great experience. God put me in such an amazing situation to experience some wonderful things.

Every thing was and is wonderful. You don't need to worry, since in a miracle way God wants to keep me alive for a while! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I will talk to you later. I will stay at home for more than two months to get fully recovered, so I will have a lot of time to be with you. :lol:

Thank you again.
Bye for now.

All the best,
Behnam, 9 August, 2013

Happy Edi-Aul-Fiter to all Muslims and humanity!

Dear Behnam,

Nice to read your post , It is a good news that you are in health and your heart surgery was done satisfactory .
I don't know what was the cause of your disease , you did a regular exercise in the park near to your house, you didn't smoke.so it was strange for me that you dealt with the heart defect .
In fact some time I feel a pain in bottom of my heart ,but I always say that it is my gastro and I don't mind to it, I never met a doctor for heart
I would like to bring you a box of cookies and bunch of flowers, it is our customs for visiting a patient .
But you shouldn't eat cookies now ,it is harmful for heart ,be careful }: }:

Hi There,

I was so much worried last night about all this hreat-problem thing that I could not really sleep well. I was worried since I sent a messege and then I got no answer. So I thought what COULD HAVE happened and then I prayed all nights. Suddenly I remembered that why haven't I checked the forum yet?!!!!!! :!!:
Silly me thought with herself that if you hadn't written here then I could at least ask somebody if they got any news from you.

You cannot imagine how RELIEVED I was to know that you had written for Eid-e-Fetr. I am just reveling in my happiness now and I thank God for your health and safety.

Wish you a hundred years of happiness and health...

Hi there ,

He was a friend of mine ,he wished he had gained lots of money instantly ,but instead of hard work he was always in bed ,sleeping or watch movies at home. There were a lots of jobs for him, sometimes he engaged in a job ,but leaves it after a while ,because he wants to gain money with no pain .He was a whiner who always complain that despite of his efforts, he was not rewarded and luck had not favored him. He blamed all successful personnel as destiny favored them blah blah and blah!

Instead of hard work, he relied on instant success. He was a false follower of God and believed in Him with his own reason. He used to pray the God day-in and day-out as to make him rich by having him strike the first prize in the local lottery tickets.
Years went by but the man had never won a lottery. At last, he died.

His wife dreamt him that when he was taken to God, he complained to God, “I have remained a true disciple to you and I kept on praying you till my last breathe. All I wanted is to make me rich by making me win a lottery prize. You could not do this to me?”
The God replied, “I would have made you win one but you did not even buy a lottery ticket!”

Hi shahrubanu,

I don't find anything bad in my heart , I can say that his wife doesn't let him to sit behind his computer desk . of course it is her right ,she should be care about Behnam's health. Computer is the first factor for heart disease. But we expect Behnam to write a short message for his friends.

In fact I feel I am sinful, I think that I have bothered him many times and caused his high blood pressure. Sometimes he had a heavy heart because of my writing. But he always forgave me.
He is a devotee ,merciful ,generous , tolerant , humble ,helper , adviser ,good man. A man who everybody worries about his health.

Hi Shahrbanu,

I am runing over my memories with Behnam , I look at his picuture ,he is picking the fruits from tree in his garden , he put the kettel on the fire to make tea ,he is behind the wheel in his new car , he is sitting behind his computer desk beside his bed , he is laying downward on the floor and reading his book for PHD examination .

Thank you the you have joined to us , you can help the forum to talorate the Behnam 's absence for a while by your writting , of course no body can be in Behnam's place for me ,but you can help calm friends .

Our dearest friend Behnam :-D

How are you my beautiful friend.

Hope you are getting well.

We were worried about you.

When I read that you are sick I was worried about you and your family, frankly speaking I was worried about your family more. Because I always think about my family what they will do if I die what are they going to do after me. I'm always afraid of death not for me but for my family, because I believe that the person who dies will rest.

God bless you and your family :-D

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are fine. I am quite well; getting well gradually. I am happy that I have the chance to write to you again in my blue font. A nice friend of mine used to call me 'Behnam blue font', or in English it might be 'Blue-fonted Behnam', yes, this sounds better. :lol:

Thank you very much for posting many friendly posts, caring and having empathy. You are valuable. I love you very much.

As you know, I am making a recovery from a bypass operation. Thankfully, the operation was good. Although there is a lot of pain in different parts of my body, there is no side effects, such as fluid buildup around the heart and the lungs, blood clots on the leg that they have taken a vein out, etc. Actually, two days ago on Saturday, I visited the surgeon in his personal office. He examined me and wanted me to visit another doctor (on the same floor that his office was). The doctor checked the function of my heart by Echo and said the heart worked perfectly and there was no fluid in the lungs and heart itself.

I have to sleep only on my back. This really bothers me! I have a walk every evening. I rarely sit at my computer, because it makes my leg painful. By the way, I cannot concentrate on things. For example, writing this post is going to take me a lot of time, since I am making a lot of mistakes and my mind also doesn't serve me as it used to do. I cannot remember words and use my vocabulary properly.

I am given many pills. I checked the pills with dear Veronica. She really helped me with the information about the operation, the recovery duration, the function of tablets,...I don't know how to thank her for her great help. To be honest, I am proud of having her as a friend. I am also proud of myself to establish such a long friendship with some nice people. Today, I chatted with her again and I wanted her to send me an important pill that the doctor had strongly recommended that I take European-made instead of Iranian.

A story: There are many stories related to the hospital and nurses or other staff. To tell you the truth, I found the personnel of the hospital very friendly, responsible, and duty-oriented. They were carrying out their responsibilities like bees in hives! After the recovery, I will write a thank you letter to the manager of the hospital.

Anyway, when entering the operation room, I heard a lady and a man(I don't know they were doctors or assistants..) where practising English. The lady asked the man about the meaning of 'sleeping policeman' in Persian. The man didn't know the answer. The man asked the lady about the meaning of 'sleeping car' in return! They were preparing me for the operation. I started saying something in English, something like these, "I've got IELTS certificate, have been learning English for more than 20 years, working on TOEFL, TOLIMO...involved in English ...but I haven't heard such phrases yet. If you are learning English to make conversations with people, you should try to speak as simple as possible...you should use simple words. You don't need to learn such phrases." They shocked and many of them said, 'WOW'. Someone said in Farsi, "oh, this lady was killing us all the time by her English...good to say such things..." :lol:

The man said, "These phrases are necessary for educated people." I replied, "You think I am an uneducated person here lying on the hospital bed? If you mean those phrases are necessary for some professional people in an area, that's OK to practise them, but you will have little chance to use them in your everyday life.."

It was about 10:30am we were talking like that...I opened my eyes and wanted my glasses. Someone said, "Your glasses aren't here"! I wanted her to call my wife and ask her to bring my glasses...! I gave her the phone number...My wife brought the glasses, but it had been 10:00pm! My wife told me later!

In the ICU, whenever I opened my eyes, I saw a nurse sitting beside me and looking at me and controlling the monitor above my bed! They were like angels, bright-faced people...

Dear Mohsen, Shahrbanu, Amal, Elham, Moro, Veronica, ... thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. Sorry for keeping you worried and waiting!

All the best,
Behnam, 20 August, 2013

Dear Behnam,

All friends were worry about your health. you removed the grieving from the forum by writing your message . It is wonder that you were thinking about English even before going to surgery room.

I think you answer the angles in English when they ask some questions in the world of hereafter..!! :lol: :lol:

Beside consuming your medicine regularly ,you need tranquility and peace of mind for being recovered in soonest time.
You have two kids , they are tranquilizers of your soul when you embrace them and also your wife bring you the peace of mind.

B.Wishes ,

Fill not your heart with pain and sorrow,
but remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I've only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me
not as I am now, but as I use to be.

Because I will remember you all and look on with a smile,
Understand, in your hearts, I've only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope everything is going will with you.

I have new news for you, today I went to a gym with my neighbors, they are two sisters. They are fat so they have to lose some weight. Meanwhile, for me, the story was different!

A lot of people were surprised whenever I say that I am willing to go there and practice! :!!:
They think that I don't need sport because I am too thin and sport is just for fat people! :!!: :~:
In fact, they are right, I need to get weight not lose it! However, at the same time, I need a strong body too and just only sport can make me stronger so I am going to exercise for one month and see if something will change...

I love to challenge myself with new things always and love to be with different kind of people.

The day today was great, I tried some of the machines there and met the trainer. While training, I had a great feeling and felt that the life has come back to me again, my mind was clear and I was just enjoying myself. :-D {-;

I am very excited about the idea and I am sure that it will be a good and new experience inshallah. :-D

Please pray for me.

Hope you a nice day.
Amal

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are fully enjoying the last month of the summer. The summer is going and the autumn-my favourite season- is coming! I love autumns very much and you know the reasons. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear Mohsen, thank you very much for your kind words. I am quite well, getting well gradually. I have a one-hour walk every evening. My heart works well, but I have pain in my leg and chest! The wounds are dry, as if they have burned the skin! The wounds are not healed yet! They are dry but painful. They are not like ordinary wounds I've had! Next Tuesday, I am visiting the doctor. I will ask for some ointment or something like that to make the wounds wet and lessen the pain in my leg!

Dear Amal, it is very nice to read your posts. I am happy that you are doing regular exercise. It can be useful for your health. Dancing also helps! :lol: However, be careful with something! Your body shouldn't become rough as boxers' bodies! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear Shahrabanu, where are you my sister? I've missed you. I don't see you online these days. Have you forgotten your brother Behnam? Have you started teaching?

Dear Moroo, yes, I agree with you. I believe, before marriage a man should think about the probable events and danger of some consequences of marriage. Marriage gives people some interesting things, but those things also confer big responsibilities on them. When a man is married, his life isn't for himself. He is sharing the life with his wife! Before having children, the parents(the man in particular) must think deeply about the future of kids. The parental responsibilities are big! I'm not worried about my health. I do love death, but I am worried about kids and my wife. However, God is الرحمن الرحیم

Dear Veronica, I hope you are enjoying your time in your summerhouse.

Dear kami and Elham, many thanks for your kindness and care.

Dear Setayesh, thank you very much for the short messages(SMS).

Dear....Thank you all! :lol:

All the best,
Behnam, 26 August, 2013

Dear Shahrubanu

It is summer holidays ,and many people travel to the area which is much colder. I have some guests from Tehran and last night I took the guests to the slop of mountain in the country to have dinner. We were mountain until the midnight ,we were trembling from the cold ,I enjoy trembling in summer .
my dear friend ,you said that people who commit sin can't pray to God because their prays are not accepted by God ,so no body can pray ,because there is no one who have not committed sin in her /his life .

You are very busy ,but you need to have rest time to time ,you need a preplanned program for your job and you should not do your job without rest , Please read the following story
there was a group of men - a young hot-blooded, strong chap and a big number of old folks, doing timber job (Wood cutting) in a jungle.
This young chap is very hard working. He always continues to work through his break time and complains that those old folks were wasting time, taking break few times a day to drink and chat.
The first day, the young woodcutter brought fifteen (15) trees. "Congratulations," the boss said, "Carry on with your work!" Highly motivated by the words of his boss, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he only could bring ten (10) trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he was only able to bring seven (7) trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.
As times goes by, this young chap noticed that even though he worked through break time and hardly took a rest, those old folks are chopping the same amount of trees as he did and sometimes did more than he did. It was as if those old folks work through the break time as he did. So he decided to work harder the next day, unfortunately the results were even worse. "I must be losing my strength." The young woodcutter thought.
One day, one of the old folk invited him for a drink during their break time. That young chap refused and said he has no extra time to spend! Then the old man smiled to him and said it was just a waste of effort to keep chopping trees without re-sharpening your Axe. Sooner or later you will give up or be so exhausted as you have spent too much energy.
Suddenly the young chap realized that actually during break times while those old folks were having a chat, they were also re-sharpening their Axe at the same time! And that's how they can chop faster than him and yet spending lesser time! The old folk said what we need is efficiency by making use of our skill and ability intelligently. Only then can we have more times to do other things.
Otherwise you will always keep saying ... I have no time!

Hi All

Post by Kamelia » Wed Aug 28, 2013 7:26 pm

How are you? How is everything going on? So now that dear Behnam's doing fine and the mood has changed to a better softer one I am going to raise a question which I have been struggling with for some days.
I am trying to find the best way to teach the book 504 in class to intermediate and advanced level students.
what is my way? Well I read from the words aloud, I make them repeat and then I spot check them.Then I explain each word's meaning by trying to show them the action or make up an example or story so that they won't forget that. I even have them do the exercises and write paragraphs with the words included, but I'm not sure if I'm going on right. You know what? I want a very exciting way to make them all participate, each and every single one of them. In this way, they are engaged but not totally!

So I am asking you all, are there ways to be added to this way of teaching? Or are there whole new ways that I don't know of?

I'd be really glad to read your suggestions,

Thank you :-D

Dear Behnam,

That is my pleasure to hear that you are getting better. I hope that the ointment quieted the pain and medicine and exercise brought relief from the pain of your heart.

These days I have a heartache for the oppressed people of Syria ,now I am listening to David Cameron from BBC,the prime minster of UK . I think that every body in the world hate him, as he is similar to Satan. He is trying to convince the UK parliament for attacking to Syria. ( of course I get 50% of his speech ).
When the USA , UK and France and their allied couldn't capture the Syria by supporting their people (Terrorists ), They are playing a game to attack directly to Syria. The only problem they have is that Israel is in access of Syrian and Hezbollah missiles.

The policy of USA and UK are as well known as the village pump ( Like a white forehead cow) ,all people know about their policy , and it seems this policy is in the end of his life, because they may be caught in swamp of Syria.
But what I can say to the countries which are Syria's neighbor and help the USA and UK. Aren't they know that after Syria it is their turn. I remember the story of stupid Turtle and scorpion.

A Scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a Turtle to carry Him on his back across a river.
"Are you crazy?" exclaimed the Turtle.
"You'll sting me while I'm swimming and I'll drown."
"My dear Turtle," laughed the Scorpion, "if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now where is the logic in that?"
"You're right!" cried the Turtle. "Hop on!"
The Scorpion climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the Turtle a mighty sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the Turtle resignedly said:
"Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there'd be no logic in your stinging me. Then why did you do it?"
"It has nothing to do with logic," the drowning Scorpion sadly replied. "It's just my character."

See you in complete health
Mohsen

Hi Morrow,

How are you? How is everything going with you? I hope you are well with your family.

Thanks for your wishes and prayer. I keep praying for your country too.

In fact we are a strong country and I don't think that USA will attack us, they are just threatening!
Even if they attacked, believe me, nobody here cares, since we are still living our life as normal...

For me, I prefer to die by an attack from USA or Israel instead of dying by the groups and the army here.. At least in this way, I will be "شهيد"...

Anyway, I hope nothing bad happen to my country and yours.
Wish you the best.

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are all doing well. I am quite well, not fully recovered, but feel getting better little by little. Today, I could get up without any help. My wife used to help me with standing up or getting up from the bed. I also could sleep on the right side without feeling any pain on my chest. I had to sleep only on my back! Oh my God! How hard it is to have only one sleeping position; on your back! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am a strong person. You know what I mean by saying that. But, heart operation is really difficult for patients. What should I complain about? Should I complain about pain? All my body is painful, although I am taking painkillers regularly. Should I complain about the wounds? They have cut my body from the toe to the upper part of my chest, except for the belly. Should I complain about boredom and tiredness? Staying at home 24-7 has made me mad! To tell you the truth, I am watching some TV programs. You can guess how I feel, since I used to hate TV. Should I complain about the worries which I have; liquid buildup around the lungs and the heart, blood clots in the leg etc? When you have such a big operation, widely affects your body, you are sensitive to every sign, noise, sound, etc. in your body. This makes you worried all the time! I have many things to complain about, but this is not a complaining letter! By the way, who should I complain to? :lol: :lol: :lol:

On Tuesday, the day after tomorrow, two events will happen and I am impatiently waiting for them. 1) The final result of PhD exam will be announced by the authorities. 2) I am visiting the doctor. I have an appointment. The first one can make me extremely happy, because I really love studying PhD. The second one can make me assured. I want you to pray for me. Please!

Dear Mohsen, thank you for your great posts. Funny things are happening in the world. Politicians are making silly decisions. They speak stupidly. Politicians are always making speeches. They don't have time to take the benefit of listening, to focus on themselves, to monitor themselves. That's why, in many cases, they are less intelligent than ordinary people!

Dear Kami, you are a great teacher now! I am happy about it. Imagining you in a classroom, teaching English, makes me feel good! About your question, I personally believe English learners have no need to memorize 504, because the majority of them are not used in everyday conversations. I have studied 504, but it has been useless for me. I think so! However, it is better to use a new word in different structures and learn sentences rather than the word itself. Learners must know different functions of a word in different situations and the prepositions or other words it collocates with! By the way, learners should use new words. The more they use a new word, the deeper it goes in the mind, the later it gets forgotten!

Dear Moroo, I am always waiting for your new posts.

Dear Amal, I totally agree with you. A dead lion in the battle is more impressive than an alive one in the cage in a zoo! Staying at home and repeating the same actions from the kitchen to the toilet is not honourable! Pardon my French! It is our duty; the main purpose of the creation, to recognize the rightness from wrongness and to support rightness! Fighting in the battle between rightness and wrongness; supporting rightness, is valuable. I am always praying for you and for the victory of rightness.

I hope to hear from you soon.

All the best,

How is the dear golden-heart ostad? Does he know that Kami missed him a great great deal?

Oh Behnam, regardin the 504, tell you what! I told the manager a gazillion times that this method doesn't work sir, for God's sake stop believing in ancient methods and get a new outlook!!! But he doesn't! He thinks memorizing is the best way and that by studying the 504 students will do better on the entrance exam!
So I just gave up, then I was looking for a new way to help them reduce this tedium of learning by memorizing! I though of a better homework, in which they had to look up the dictionary for the words and write a paragraph of the words given in the lesson. This way, they would benefit from both having the words by heart and understanding how to apply them in context! :-D

You know what? I always try to spice things up, find new ways, music, movies, cartoons, joke clips and anything that at least seemingly doesn't denote "being in a class in the old-fashioned way"! You know what? Because I myself will be bored too! LOL

Hope to read from you so soon,

wholeheartedly wishing you a wonderful healthy body,

Dear Behnam,
Nice to read that you are better and in good health now , during last week I had a travel to Shrize , We went to shiraz with two cars ,rent two rooms for four days ,very cheap 60 thousands toman each night . Each room consisted of 4 bed ,a kitchen and bathroom. We had no time to cook at room . We went out side to visit Shiraz from morning and came back in the evening.

Shiraz has many beautiful places for visiting , many gardens and ancient buildings , I enjoy the most when I visited the Pasargad and Takhte-jamshid . I have already visited this places several times , but each time I visit there my body get a new power . It is unbelievable that Iranian make such a significant buildings 500 years before the brith of Christ (BC) , the palaces with 20 meters tall columns ,the palaces in size of a football stadiums. There are huge stone with 7 tones weight in the walls and gates and statues of animals in large sizes which are mounted on the entrance gates.
The Takhte-Jamshid , is called Perspolis in Latin, When Alexander attacked Iran ,he captured the Perspolis, he lived in this beautiful palace for two months and then ordered to burned the palace , he couldn't bear to see a superior civilization ,so he destroyed all of buildings and also the city of Parseh which was beside the Palace.
Never the magnificence of this places could be described within the words and sentences , it should be visited by your own eyes althought it remains only a ruins of palaces.

All the best,
Mohsen

Dear Kamile I m teaching English too in a college but this is my first experience in a school until now I just have tutored to small groups of students .Honey ,wish you best I m very sad about you because I know that it s difficult to apply new trends in teaching English while your school manager is ordering you to apply the old-fashioned techniques .This is the first time I have heard about 504 what s that dear? it sounds strange {-: is it a name of a teaching tecnique,approach or method?
I really want to improve myself about how to teach English effectively. I have huge methodological knowledges but you know it s diffucult to adopt these during the teaching time wish me best dear :~:
I hope everthing will be good

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are spending a great summer.

My grandma is in the hospital, she can't walk, stand or even move her feet. She feels pain whenever she move. So the doctor checked her and decided to make a surgery... I hope she will be OK, inshallah.

Dears, I maybe wont be online for some days so please don't worry, I am very well and safe.

Please pray for my grandma.
Wish you the best

Hi Friends!

Hi my great friends,

Life without you is like being in vacuum. How are you? I hope you are doing well. I am also well. On Thursday the doctor is checking my heart by some devices like Echo and sport-scanning the curves of heart. If it works well, he will prescribe me Physiotherapy for10 sessions. About the final result of PhD exam, unfortunately, I am not accepted! I failed, although I answered to all verbal and oral questions correctly, and I did very well in the interview! I cannot justify myself! I don't know how to face with this unfairness! I am really disappointed. After knowing the failure, I was depressed for three days. I couldn't sleep and didn't eat anything! My heart beat so quickly and I sweated heavily! It was my absolute right to study PhD, but they denied my right! They are absolutely unfair and unreasonable!

Dear Shahrbanu and Kamelia, two great English teachers, I wish you success! Don't forget to look on the funny side of teaching too. Nowadays, students get bored quickly. In the past, students were hardworking, but these days many of them are fooling around. These lazy students cause teachers some troubles. It should be kept in mind that a classroom with some students has many layers. What the students do in the class is only the first layer of their actions. The students belong to different cultures and backgrounds since they are from different families. You should know there are some spies, some gossips, etc. among them. I wish you success in managing and monitoring the class as well as possible!

Dear Mohsen, I love Shiraz very much. I've been to Shiraz four times, but these have been business(job-related) trips. I hadn't time to visit those historical places. The coming spring holidays, I intend to travell to Shiraz with my family. I hope so!

Dear Amal, thank you for putting posts here and informing us about yourself. I hope your grandmother will be well soon. I will pray for her health. If the grandfather was alive, she would get well much sooner! You know, men are great healers in some situations! :lol: :lol: :lol: May God bless the grandfather and help the grandmother recover as soon as possible.

All the best,

Please dear Behnam, don't sit there, go to sanjesh and ask for your right! The only thing I can think of is that there's sth wrong, maybe there's been a mistake in announcing results.... please ask them check it again, it's unbelievable ..............

Dear Shahrubanu,

I don't know where are you from ,and which city you live in. Shiraz is very famous, if you search in google the words of perspolis palace, Apadana palace or Takhte jamshid you will find many pictures from there. I find the following website you can open and visit these places.

Dear Behnam,

Sorry to hear that you didn't accept in interview, I can't judge it whether it is fair or unfair. But you have time for interview next year. Don't worry and don't press on your heart.
if the world doesn't turn on your desire somedays , don't be sad ,finally it turns for you one day., you know this poem. It was said by Hafez. I was in his Shrine where he has been buried 700 years ago. I read Al Fateh Soreh for him. Hafez was a title for him ,because he was able to read the Quran by heart. His name was Shams Al-din Mohammad. Hafez was originally from Esfahan, but his family migrated to Shiraz, because of Mongolian attack to Esfahan.

I offer one of his poem to you ,may it calms you for some moments

Your lost Joseph will return to Canaan, do not grieve
This house of sorrows will become a garden, do not grieve

Oh grieving heart, you will mend, do not despair
This frenzied mind will return to calm, do not grieve

When the spring of life sets again in the meadows
A crown of flowers you will bear, singing bird, do not grieve

If these turning epochs do not move with our will today
The spheres of time are not constant, do not grieve

Don’t lose hope, for awareness cannot perceive the unseen
Behind the curtains hidden scenes play, do not grieve

Oh heart, should a flood of destruction engulf the world
If Noah is at your helm, do not grieve

As you step through the desert longing for the Ka’aba
The thorns may reproach you, do not grieve

Home may be perilous and the destination out of reach
But there are no paths without an end, do not grieve

Our state in separation from friends and with demands of foes
The God who spins fate knows all, do not grieve

Hafez, in the corner of poverty and loneliness of dark nights
As long as your words are prayers and lessons of Quran, do not grieve.
Have a good time.
Mohsen

Hi Behnam

Post by Kamelia » Thu Sep 12, 2013 8:28 am

How are you dear? I always pray for you and your lovely family's safety and happiness. And you know what? Nothing can make life more enjoyable than these two!
I got the experience of not being in accepted in the entrance exam and tell you what, it doesn't even worse being sad for ;-) why? because you are throwing your fate to the hands of some seemingly geeks who think they know everything! And more important than that, they do NOT consider your knowledge! They appraise other trivial stuff.....you know!

Oh I'm not trying to compare myself with you since this is impossible but I'm just saying....I've been there....no need to be sorry or sad! I had a professor who had taken Ph.D five times and then got accepted on the fifth run! You see? And he was much more knowledgeable than a professor with the full professorship certificate!

Oh it happens man, time comes and goes. Don't just worry your beautiful golden heart with these stuff :-)

Oh and thanks for the piece of advice. You are always helpful. The term finished and on Saturday I'm going to hold their final tests. It was not a very happily ending semester since the previous night the manager told me that the little ones had complained him that we want her to be our teacher the next semester but she didn't EVEN work on the 504 book! Now I don't know where the hell did they get that idea from :!!: , but God knows I did my best! Uh these kids....kids! The most unfair creatures on the whole planet!

whev, I feel lighter now that I spat it out! :-D

Wish you all the best,

Write to us soon man, we miss you!

Hi Shahrbanu

Post by Kamelia » Thu Sep 12, 2013 8:38 am

How are you Shahrbanu? It is a real pleasure to meet you. Since this is the first time we are writing to each other so I really would like to know more about you. I mean if it is ok please be kind as to tell me what did you study, what was your major, how old are you, where are you from where do you teach, how much you love teaching aaaaand what books did you study to gain teaching materials :-D

So I understand that you are a university professor! What a lucky person I am to have two friends here who teach in university. Behnam and you can be great paragons of teaching for me :-)

Shahrbanuuuu, you know what 504 is? I am sure you've seen it a hundred times! Remember a very big green 504 number on a book called 504 absolutely essential words? That is it! And tell you what? The class I am presenting 504 to is such a class of "two nations" so to speak, LOL. You want to know why? because some students are really erudite while others have absolutely no idea what simple present is! And you know what? The smart ones had complained to the boss that I don't teach them enough 504 vocabulary! :!!: Gosh, man! I AM the teacher and I know how to evaluate the class and teach based on their capabilities, not the boss! You see what I am getting at?

Uh..well....I know what to do for the next semester :-D

Write to me soon,

I'd be so happy to read from you,

Hi Friends!

Post by behnam » Sun Sep 15, 2013 4:49 pm

Hi Friends,

How are you? I've missed you terribly.

Dear Elham, thank you very much for your caring post. Last week, I went to the parliament and office of the president and made a complaint from the unfairness of the university. I did what I could do. I also went to the office of leader to complain about their cruelty, but they said it wasn't related to the leadership! The complaints won't change anything. The result is the same, but I don't care!

Dear Mohsen, thank you for your friendly post and advice. I really enjoyed the poems. Thank you very much for sharing. I agree with you about your comment on Hafez. However, I prefer Sheikh Saadi to Hafez, because his poems are more practical, useable and applicable than those of Hafez.

Dear Kamelia, I guess you have taken your first salary. Congratulations! What are you going to do with your fist salary? How do you feel now? What are you going to buy? I bet you are going to different restaurant these nights. I wish you success!

Dear Amal, I am happy that your grandmother is well after the operation. I was praying for her health. To be honest with you, whenever I started to pray for her, I remembered the story of the old lady and prophet(PBUH). It is said that a boy was carrying his old mother on his back. They met Mohammad(PBUH) accidentally. Prophet talked to the boy and asked him where he was taking his mother. The boy said he was taking his mother to visit a doctor! Prophet(PBUH) said what his mother needed is a husband, not a doctor! The boy got shocked and said, " Oh, my mother is an old lady...". While the boy was giving some explanation for his disapproval, his mother hit the boy's back with her feet and said, "Prophet knows much more than you. Don't bother him." :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear Shahrbanu, I wish you success in teaching. You are a great teacher. Thank you for your friendly posts. I wish you the best moods. May God fill your heart from happiness and contentment.

Dear RacGamb, welcome to this thread. To be honest, I didn't get what you mean. Give my best regards to my dear friend and brother Naseh.

Dear Moroo, I am waiting for your posts.

All the best,
Behnam, 15 September, 2013

Dear Behnam ,
The poems are difficult to understand , and poets are mysterious , it is said the when a poet would be entangled in rhythm and rhyme ,he starts to talk nonsense.
Sometime the poet praise someone which is no deserved. Many poets compose doggerel about kings, because their life.
It is said that once Saadi did a wrong behavior uncontrolled .when he was sitting among dervishes ,the air went out from his body uncontrollably ,so he composed the following poem
شکم زندان بادست ای خردمند. ندارد هیچ عاقل باد در بند
چو باد اندر شکم پیچد فرو هل. که باد اندر شکم بارست بر دل
حریف ترشروی ناسازگار . چو خواهد شدن دست پیشش مدار

Of course I didn't get the meaning of last verse :lol: :lol: :lol:

The couple reach to mutual understanding when both of them know what are the responsiblities that should be undertaken by each side ,so the is no confilicts and objects in their life.

Banta asked Santa, "What is the secret behind your happy married life?"
Santa said, "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect to each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems."
Bantga asked, "Can you explain?"
Santa said, "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each others decisions."
Still not convinced, Banta asked him, "Give me some examples"
Santa said, "Smaller issues like which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy, monthly expenses, whether to keep a maid or not etc are decided by my wife. I just agree to it"
Banta asked, "Then what is your role?"
Santa said, "My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America should attack Syria, whether the European Union should lift sanctions over Iran, whether UN should revise some rules, etc. Do you know one thing, my wife NEVER objects to any of these."

Diary,
Today I bought 10 kgs walnut in green skin , it was just picked from walnut tree , the walnut core was soft and white.In the evening I peeled the walnuts and broke some of them by fingers. It was really delicious to eat fresh walnut. I also roasted two corns of maize on the fire ,ate them with my wife.
The fresh corns ,fresh walnut and pistachio are all over on the market.

Hi Mohsen,

How are you our loyal friend? I hope your life is full of joy. Don't worry, I am here, and will be here, but these days I am not in the mood for writing. I will write after full recovery. I am going to the hospital 3 times a week(even days) to do special exercise. I will join you soon, Enshallah.

Love your posts,
All the best,

How is my Golden Heart friend doing? Does he know that I always pray for his health and happiness? {-:

Dear Behnam, I got my very first official salary about two weeks ago. It was such a wonderful experience, since I felt a bit more independent. At least I didn't have to ask mom or dad for money for some months or weeks and that was interesting :-D I was like, now I got my own money, I can buy this or that without asking anyone to help me financially :-D

Restaurants...oh no, not much of a restaurant fan when I'm busy studying. Especially that my sister left the town to her university and I'm a bit alone so...maybe some time later I spend my money on food but not now!

Uh...guess what? I bought some girlish stuff, and then two books. I already started reading one of them because I could not say NO to my appetite for reading :-D One of them is war and peace, of course you know by who and the other is this new book of Paulo Coelho called Aleph, or maybe I think it's new! It's nice. He's such a comfortable author.

Hope to read from you so soon dear,

Hi Shahrbanu

Post by Kamelia » Thu Sep 26, 2013 10:49 am

How are you? How is teaching these days? Oh I read your post right the day you wrote it but unfortunately in the afternoon when I wanted to reply to it I ran out of internet credit so I postponed it to now.I'm so sorry if it took me so long but anyway, I hope that by now you are feeling very well {-:
So let me introduce myself at first. I am from Iran and I live in a little town in northern pat of Iran.But I studied English Literature in a very famous university in Iran in Mashhad city. I actually learned to speak English from when I was 13 years old. I used to go to institutes which teach language in its four skills but they mostly focus on conversation and speaking competency, so to speak! Hmmmm....you know what? I used to teach English as a tutor since I was a little girl, say 15 years old. I taught whoever was eager to read and learn. But this year it is very different, I took part in an institute's entry exam which is mostly the TOEFL and was accepted in the interview section too. So I chose to take two classes, one with adults ranging from 16 to 23 and the other with little kiddos of 10 to 15 :-D
The experience was awesome, I'd never had a classes like this. I remember I used to teach in dormitory to a great many of my friends at the same time(like a class) too, but nothing is like a facilitated official class with grade numbers and papers :-D you know what I mean!
And you know what is so good and fun about teaching English? It is that you can use every method you enjoy to spice up the class. You can play music, work with colors, read stories, do riddles, watch a movie or cartoon or even play games. And they all contribute to learning so very well, right?

Now tell me about your students, how many are they? Girls, boys or both? What level is the book you teach? What sort of materials do you have to focus on more? What do you do to reduce the tedium of grammar parts? :-D

Hope to read from you so soon,

The Paradox of Our Time

Post by behnam » Sun Sep 29, 2013 1:40 pm

THE PARADOX OF OUR TIME

(Please read this essay carefully!)
A wonderful Message by George Carlin:


The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.


Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember
to say "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

Once again:
Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.


Please share this article with all people who are selfish, arrogant, and think they are perfect in all aspects!

All the best,

Hi Behnam,

Thank for your post . This is a fact, and I am wallowing in despair to be far away from my love ones. This my job which spare more of my time.
Very nice to see your writing .that is a signal that you have been released from doctor ,please don't squander more cash on hospital , come back to your sporting manner. I used to see Behnam as sport man.

Hi

Post by behnam » Sat Oct 05, 2013 12:54 pm

Hi to all,

First of all, I'd like to say I've missed you terribly. How are you my friends? I hope you are doing well, and enjoying this beautiful season.

I am going to the hospital 3 times a week to have some exercise like walking on treadmill, bicycling, etc. It is funny, no matter how much and how fast you walk, you are at the same point! It is similar to the life of the poor! No matter how much they work, they are in the dog-house! Apparently, misery is an unchangeable destiny of some people. I don't know, but feel so! Oh, sorry for digressing. I was saying that on even days I go to the hospital. It starts at 8:00am and ends at 9:30am! I don't go to work. I have to stay at home and take rest. I will go to work in November.

In the evening, I have a one-hour walk at the park. I have to lose some weight. I have to change my diet too! My wife does not put salt on the table and only pours a little bit salt into foods. This is what the nutritionist has said to my wife! My wife has to stop frying chicken and potato, etc. in oil. She has to use chicken instead of red meat in preparing foods!

Anyway, my life has changed. I have changed too. I am not the same person. I have lost my accuracy and concentration. My brain does not work like an atomic clock anymore! I know, nobody is reading this line, so, to tell you the truth, it didn't work like an atomic clock before! :lol: :lol: :lol: Once mullah Nasereddin( a comic person) jumped over a donkey to ride it. Poor mullah jumped from one side and fell down from the other side. He couldn't sit on the donkey's back. He sighed and said, "Oh, my youth you have gone, alas I am old now." He looked around and saw nobody was noticing his failure. Then he whispered to the ear of the donkey, "To be honest, I was nothing in my youth". Now, to be honest, my brain has never worked like an atomic clock! :lol:

Oh, something else from my PhD exam. Iranian Measurement Organization(I don't know what they measure, how, and what the unit is; meter, kilogram, sack, bag, buckle, etc.) has announced a report which shows my average(the average of verbal and oral exams) and my rank. My verbal mark was 9007 out of 10000, and my oral mark was 2500! I ranked 21st at the university, while the 20th person is accepted! How funny and unfair it is! They have given me a number(2500 out of 10000) to make me the 21st person, no matter how my talents, answers, abilities, skills, knowledge, etc. were! Now, I must sit and wish the death of one of those 20 students. :lol: If one of them dies or leaves the country, or stops studying for any reasons, I may get accepted! There is some light at the end of the tunnel, but I dislike it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Let's stop bothering you. Good memories are always flying in the sky of my mind. I am breathing with those sweet memories.

All the best,

Dear Shahrebanu,

Many thanks for sharing that Turkish music on facebook. Although I don't understand even one word of it, listening to it takes my soul to another world. As if I have lost sth and it reminds me of it!!!! Ohhhhhh, thanks honey for gifting me this great sense today, for these wonderful tears on my face, for reminding me of my old days, old memories, happy days, memorable hours in the past...
........

I can't stop listening to it... I can't stop my tears... I can't stop thinking and feeling.....

Thanks honey

Hi Elham,

How are you?

Ohh WOW! I can't believe my eyes!

When I opened the thread and saw you name, I thought that I had made a mistake and didn't read the name correctly, I thought that I was still asleep and dreaming of you! :-D I was too amazed!

Dear Eli, Listening to music is something good. However, when it makes us cry it started to be a bad thing. I really like to hear that you are enjoying your time but I hate it when you cry. please please if listening to music makes you cry, pleeeease stop it!

I know that sometimes things remind us of old memories and days and we hardly can prevent our tears but let's let the past in the past and look forward to the future. ;-)

I hope all your days are full of happiness and joy.

Music isn't optional or selective!

Post by behnam » Sun Oct 13, 2013 7:53 am

Hi friends,

It is my favourite season and I am enjoying the special beauty of nature these days. Enjoying something does not necessarily mean doing something or having a particular activity. For me, walking, looking at trees and birds and the shades, breathing the air of autumn, friendly sunlight etc. are all enjoyable.

It is very nice to read your posts. Reading your posts makes me really happy and joyful. Thank you very much for keeping your contact with this thread and friends. There is a saying in Azerbaijani language 'Har zadin tazasi, dustin kohnasi'(هر زادین تزسی، دوستین کهنسی). It means 'every new thing is favourable, but when it comes to friendship, an old friend is favourable'! I couldn't translate it properly. You know, some phrases and expressions or sayings cannot be translated. You lose the meaning when you translate them from native language into another one. This saying is one of them. Anyway, I hope you'll get the meaning.

Amal's style of writing has made me amazed. I am not exaggerating at all. Her way of writing, and the structures she uses in her writings make me absolutely amazed. I wish I knew how she had made such a great improvement in her writing skills. I guess she is reading some novels.

As always, Elham is full of emotions and feelings. I guess she feels nostalgic about the past. She remembers some happy memories and wishes that things had not changed. I am not going to advise her, since (رطب خورده منع رطب کی کند)! In English it means, someone who has eaten date, cannot tell someone else to stop eating it! I feel nostalgic about the old days too. Old memories are like sweet dreams, marching in front of my eyes.

Kamelia and Shahrbanu are too stingy to write more! What they are doing is so similar to the action of a person who is aware of someone's thirst. S/he shows a glass of ice-water to that thirsty person and lets him/her touch the glass, but doesn't quench his/her thirst! You were lucky that I used water and thirst to explain the situation. You know, using apples and things like that to make myself clear is easier and funnier! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Where is Mohsen? I've missed him and his posts.

Finally, we shouldn't blame Elham for her feelings. Actually, she hasn't chosen that piece of music. Someone else has put it on her Facebook and she has listened to it. Let's suppose Elham has chosen such a sad piece of music. Even in this case, we have no right to blame her, because music is not selective. We cannot choice either happy or sad piece of music. As a matter of fact, our feeling makes decision about the kind of music we like listening to at a specific period of time.

Yesterday, I was talking to a friend of mine. I wanted her to listen to happy music! However, we listen to music which is in accordance with our moods or feelings. What I am saying is this: We enjoy listening to a piece of music which is compatible with our moods or feelings!

All the best,

Hi Behnam,
You did a great job , walking in autumn is fantastic ,you took important step to access your complete health
The autumn is making the days short and the nights long , and you know that the night is belong to ladies :lol: :lol: , I should be beside my wife . so there is little time to write here .

Also my desire for sleeping has been doubled in autumn. I don't know why my mood has been change , maybe this is normal for all people !! what is your sense ? do you feel you would like to sleep more in autumn ?

I am nostalgic in fall , for what ? I don't know , maybe it is the guilt of my album which i was looking at ,the old memories comes to my mind ,...but it was worth and enjoyable.

It is really pleasing to find myself a little craving to stay in bed and watch a movie.
I am able to remove all concerns from my mind and enjoy my life.

all the best,
Mohsen

Nights belong to....!

Hi Mohsen,

It was very nice reading your post and hearing about you. Thanks!

To be honest, in terms of sleeping, for me it does not matter which season we are in. I sleep 7 to 8 hours every day.

The night belongs to ladies! What do you mean? Which night do you mean? Well, suppose one night in a week belongs to ladies, what about other 6 nights? You might mean nights belong to ladies! If so, you have big trouble spending nighttime with your wife. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Make your wife busy with her personal tasks. Ladies have many things to do. When they are not busy, they either speak on phone or talk to their husbands(or to a listener)! :lol: :lol: :lol:

You know such things much better than me. I should stop sounding like an adviser.

All the best,

Strange things we see these days!

Post by behnam » Tue Oct 15, 2013 9:54 am

HI Friends,

A few seconds ago I was in the kitchen; talking with my wife about the strange things we see these days. When we were talking, I decided to share the main part of the story with you.

First, as you may know, apple is my first favourite fruit. My second favourite fruit is pomegranate. As you know, pomegranate ripens in autumn. About 2 hours ago, we were to the market to do the shopping. Some people were selling pomegranate. I bought a big basket of it. After getting home, I went to the kitchen and took a knife and cut one of the largest pomegranates. Strangely, the seeds inside it were whitish and dry! I cut another one. It was worse than the first one! I cut about 10 pomegranates, but they weren't eatable. My wife said, 'it is not possible to be crooks and frauds and to have good harvests." I added, "Why do farmers send such bad fruits to the market? Why don't they cut such useless trees down? What do they think?"

It is not fair to put the blame on farmers. No matter where we are living in and what we are doing. Everybody who doesn't perform his/her duties must be blamed. As a general rule, things are linked together like chain rings. The farmer is just one link in the chain.

This summer, before having heart operation, I couldn't buy sweet red watermelon. No matter in what size I bought, the watermelons were tasteless.

Three weeks ago, I was in Tabriz; my motherland. In the vicinity of Tabriz, on the road sides, people were selling different things. Somewhere some people were selling apple. Oh my God! Apples were really really really perfect. They were large, bright,watery and as tough as I love. They have pleasant smell and beautiful colours (a nice combination of orange, yellow and white). I bought two large basket of apples and brought them to Tehran. Oh, you cannot imagine how nice they were and how I felt when biting those apples. Some friends could hear the sound of my bites when talking to me on the mobile phone or Skype! :lol: :lol: :lol: You may say, "Well, Behnam you have paid a large amount of money for those large apples." Swear to God, the price of apple in Tehran is about twice as its price in Tabriz. However, the quality of it in Tehran is much less that its quality in Tabriz.

I paid a big amount of money to those pomegranates; mentioned above, but I burned the money actually!

My question is this: Hey farmers, salesmen, producers,... when you know your products are terrible, why are you selling them? why are you producing them? Simply and briefly, why do we all deceive each other?

All the best,
