    Talking about the story, just a little more, I could say what Betty has written: I don´t hesitate on April 1969 when I asked Cuca for being my wife, either on
    30th of April 1970 when I said, “Yes I do” and “Yes, I promise to be with you in the richness and poverty, in the health or in sickness, in confort or distress,
    for the rest of my life” even “I promise to love you, to respect you, to care you every day of my life, till dead separate us”,
    Every day of our life Cuca and me try to confirm that promise and in fact it is not difficult if you love the person and you have been so lucky to find
    “your half orange” as we did.
    Just the subject, difficult subject, it is to find he/her and knowing it is your love don´t hesitate any more, care her/him every day as the first day you dated
    and say also every day, ” Yes, I love you my dear” feeling it is true and having fidelity to your dear love always.
    That´s enough, let her or him know you still are loving your couple even more than the first day.

    Thank you Parviz, I hope you like the story knowing it is writting for your request, so yes THANK YOU.

    Good luck to the singles, also the married, who could read the cuca/emiliano´s story and these words.

    Thank you. emiliano

    Hi! I am very sorry but I was very busy watching the Olympic Games.
    Figure skating almost every day…
    And closing ceremony of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games…listening to the valtz no.2 by Dmitri Shostakovich…
    I thought that I was flying among the stars like in “2001: A Space Odyssey” movie.
    A joy for soul.
    I’ll come back among our dear blog friends.
    I miss you all.

    One of the best subject I like the most reading about is science.

    It just is beautiful. Take this news of today for instance.

    Scientist in the field of geology I guess, have dated a small piece of crystal 4.4 billion years old.

    That is just when our beautiful planet formed with the moon.

    That is unbelievable/mind blowing the age of this tiny crystal and these techniques they have for dating old objects.
