Back in the company of the cave dwellers – after the laughter at my fruitless attempt at milking a sheep had died down – the conversation quickly turned to the dam. With typical Turkish hospitality, a family of five shepherds had invited Mourad and I over for tea and something to eat.
We piled into the shepherds’ ramshackle truck and crossed the shallow river to the family’s home – “cave” hardly did the dwelling justice. Two storeys high, spacious, beautifully decorated, with running water, electricity and even a glass pane window, the cave was a place I might have moved into. Thick carpets lined with plush cushions covered the living room floor.
As honoured guests, we were invited to sit down and partake in a breakfast so ample, it left me full until evening. Dish after dish appeared: fried eggs, goat’s cheese, fresh bread, olives, tomatoes, butter, cucumbers, meatballs, sweets and gözleme (paper thin pancakes filled with cheese or honey and nuts). Politeness demanded we have at least one of each.
Buying people who've had a great World Cup may not workreenex
History teaches us that a great tournament does not a great Premier League player make: the Karel Poborsky Rule, as it is known. By buying World Cup flop Diego Costa, Chelsea have cleverly insured against this. Let's hope he doesn't become the new Fernando Torres.
Pundits are better when they tryreenex
There's been a notable increase in the amount of elbow grease put in by TV pundits in this World Cup, with the likes of Alan Shearer clearly having done research (or had it done for him) about the players he is watching. Let's hope the Beeb pundits' newfound appetite for homework extends to the domestic season as well.
Luis Suarez has got to go
Leaving aside morality and all that nonsense, Suarez losing the plot and biting Chiellini robbed his country of their best chance of progressing. Even Liverpool's loyal supporters must now recognise that the guy is a liability: if he keeps doing these crazy things and keeps getting long bans, surely it doesn't matter how good he is?
There's no thrill like the thrill of the new…
You'd have to have a heart of stone not to enjoy the way people in America have embraced the World Cup, or to be inspired by Costa Rica toppling three previous winners and then battling on with 10 men to pinch it against Greece. Football is just more exciting when it's not the same old teams winning all the time. Is it time for the Premier League to introduce some sort of draft system or wealth redistribution to try to level the playing field a bit? Or have we all just accepted that the spending power of the big four or five guarantees their dominance in perpetuityreenex ?
For the mother, I have to write too much, maybe write every day, every day to write, write not over a lifetime. But, father, I have always wanted to write but did not dare to write. Perhaps my love for him is not easy because it shows between the lines. I didn't go home five one of the time, he was asked to call me, said father's younger male cousin hit his son, played very fierce, finally cousin anger not to go to school, even swear not to participate in the senior high school entrance examination is approaching. I heard he sighed deeply in the telephone, also think that fatherhood is difficult, the son is unaware of it box mod kit.
And my father played the phone, I will slow not strength. I'm surprised I didn't once beaten my memory. Father is too good for me, at equal situation very early, he would ask me for advice, as for my mother. But in my first youth, but I want to take him as an enemy, against him, he let him eat irony, communication. I hate I often be opinionated self exile, by examination failed to make to prove himself not take life seriously; I hate I made time executioner, help a tyrant to victimize his subjects, personally murdered father buried his youth, middle-aged, also make him not so happy; I hate I read too many preconceived expectations but leave him be inexhaustible in rural areas where a crime, accept the son not filial piety fate Maggie Beauty; I hate me...... But the father never mentioned, he is always wearing a smile quietly accept the neighbors to his praise, although these are not necessarily really praise, and some very exaggerated, but he really is proud of us. He is like a fishing net to make us better, bad have all with time of the water washed away.
When I was in primary school because of his play firecrackers, lie in bed and rest when I heard him and his mother blaming each other, why not take good care of me. In fact, I was not small, they had not staring at the necessary and obligation to me, but they are more for the fierce fight, finally actually, also broke the glass and teacup, I heard the sound of loud crashing suddenly felt a strong sense of guilt, I want to say it's none of your business, is I is not good, but it only silently, eyes slightly close to cry, do not know how long cry, I felt a warm hand to wipe my cold face, so soft, so with great care, I opened my eyes and saw my father, he was crying, he a the big man like little children in the hopeless cry, I cry silently beside the mother. My father, he did not go to comfort his wife instead to comfort just sensible son! For a moment I understood: he is afraid to fight to hurt a young heart. That night, the three of us could not fall asleep, we all at self reproach, I swear later no longer trouble, I have responsibility for things. Also appears in the evening, I cubujifang to grow up Residence Design.
Tesla boss Elon Musk has given the strongest hint yet that the firm is considering "freeing" its patents to help speed up electric car development.
When asked by the BBC's Theo Leggett if he was considering giving technology away, Mr Musk said "you're on the right track".
Mr Musk said he hoped to break down technological barriers to help speed up electric car adoption.
The firm will deliver the first five of its Model S cars to the UK on Saturday.
Mr Musk told the BBC: "We don't want to cut a path through the jungle and then lay a bunch of landmines behind us."
Earlier this week, Mr Musk told Tesla shareholders that in order to speed up the pace of adoption of electric cars, Tesla was "playing with doing something fairly significant on this front which would be kind of controversial with respect to Tesla's patents".

The company's Model S sports car will cost approximately £70,000 and be able to travel 300 miles (480km) on a single charge, according to reports.
Last year, the firm sold 22,500 vehicles and says it is on track to sell 35,000 this year.
However, it has come under fire for its mileage claims as well as concerns about battery fires.
Tesla - which has seen its share price rise by more than 112% in the past year - has a stated goal of making "an electric car that's better than any petrol car".
However, adoption has been slow, which is perhaps a reason why the firm is considering ways to offer its technology to other firms in the space.
It is a departure from the technology strategy of Space X, another firm founded by Mr Musk.
Space X is trying to commercialise space both through missions to the moon for NASA and through private space travel.
Mr Musk has said in the past that Space X does not patent its technologies for fear that they could be stolen by competitors.
