I have a special possesion that is very important to me. It is a tuning fork. It's forty years old. It's made of metal in the form of a small fork with two points that hit produces a particular sound. It isn't worth a lot of money but it's very important to me because it reminds me when I was a young student of music. I used it for tuning of musical instrument and of voice. Now I keep it in my handbag. I often like to hit it and listen to particular sound called "A", or in Italian, "LA".

If I had a time machine I would like to visit the ancient times where lived people called cave men. I wonder how did a humanism and religious views appear among them. What did the views really present? What did those people think about live, death, spiritual topics and God.
Some scientists not sure that our modern knowledge about that era is exactly correct. Their opinion based on several interesting archeological finds such as bones of an old man, who was blind and had challenges of moving by himself because of damaged legs from his birth. In spite of all of the difficulties he reached old age due to help of his relatives and, perhaps, of the other members of a tribe. Simultaneously there was another group of people nearby, who practiced cannibalism and treated each other almost like animals.

That means that not all cave people may be considered as really wide. It is very interesting for me to explore how the spark of humanity flame up to the civilization.

Hi, Tarana!
Discribe the way you try to download the recordings in?

I am looking forward to next  Ravi's jokes! They're really amusing. My mates always laugh when I tell them these jokes. "What should you do if you break your leg in two places?" Do you remember it? It was awesome!
