It's sad that russian bots have invaded all of cyberspace, not only US elections.
@scarface I ask you not to leave. Your posts & everyone else's are something I enjoy everyday.

This Ramadan might be tough.
At least if you stay you can have your say about it & we enjoy reading that.

Note that I added another photo above.

Well, you can already get a copy of the forum. But I think there is no great forum or alternative on the web indeed. Actually, Nomaher is one of the rare forums where you can post any program or game without problems.

Notebookreview is about reviews on hardware, but who needs that here? We need something exceptional, not only discussions. btw, As far as smartphones are concerned, note that for me the best one at the moment is the Honor 8A. Maybe it's not as good as an iphone X, but the iphone X is at least 4 times as expensive as the Honor 8A. Note that I still that the old samsung s6 in the meantime. Newer samsung have a shorter autonomy time, the S6 is probably the best smartphone of the last few years. Note that most photos of the forum are taken with it. I'm not sure that the Honor 8A can take photos with the same quality.

As for the Radaman, well, maybe it was meant to be tough? Note that the choice is mine to do it or not since I consider that I'm Catholic and Muslim, even though I'm not practicing. If I don't want to eat, then I'll do it. And if you are wondering if I'm Sunni or Shiite, I decided to be both. Considering the size of the repacks of the forum, you must be thinking that it's a second miracle. Well, actually, if we assume that Muhammad and Ali both left Bethlehem to go to Mecca, if one follow Muhammad, then one follow Ali, you probably agree with this. Therefore, it might not be hard to follow both of them.

Note: I was planning to go to India, but in fact I'm going to look for a closer destination (Maybe it will be cheaper. And it will pollute less too). So I was wondering: Where is the place to go today? Unquestionably, I think it's Cairo. Hopefully, I will go there by the end of the year. If you are already there, I can meet you of course. Some exclusive photos will be taken.

For those who are feasting during Ramadan, I found an interesting website which gives you the schedule for the month of Ramadan. You can try to find your town.
For example in St Etienne it starts at 5am and ends at 9pm today.

Today, I took 2 new photos, here they are.

The first one was taken from my balcony, you can glimpse the town of Saint Etienne between the trees.


Here you can see Momo and Koko. My father used to take care of them but they seem a bit ill now. Since my apartment is orientated toward the North, they can hardly catch the sun rays.
You can make out a little can of 1664. Despite the Ramadan I'm drinking a beer you see. I tried to do it 2 days ago and it was difficult. Today, I decided to leave Allah alone and please Jesus again.

Here are 2 new photos for the users of the forum.

Here is a photo taken place Anatole France, in Saint Etienne. For 50 000€ you can buy a flat here, or an unsanitary slum of 5 square meters, with a charming view of the make-shift camp of La Chapelle in Paris. aa1234779 might not agree with me, but besides the "mange-merdes", I'm wondering who wants to live in big towns nowadays.


A large part of my job consists in giving some food to my birds friends.
Maher probably noticed the feathered feet of the white one. It's as if it was wearing moon boots.

Tonight, I shot new photos in St Etienne. I know that aa1234779 and usman are looking at them carefully.


Near place Anatole France, in St Etienne. If you want to buy a flat, there is a phone number. It's probably one of the most beautiful places of St Etienne, with its park.
In front of the little supermarket, there are several tramps... Don't worry: they are not users of the forum, they don't speak English, let alone French.
To put it bluntly, if I was staying in St Etienne, I would buy a flat, probably in the residence with park, in the outskirts of St Etienne, where I'm currently living. The streets are calm, there are few cars in the center of the town (in comparison, the trafic noise makes it unbearable to live near the main boulevards in Paris).



The pizza Cosy of St Etienne. The last time I ate at the restaurant with my father, it was here, in August 2018. Well, at this time, it was my first day in St Etienne, and even though I was pleasantly surprised by the architecture of the town, it was already bustling with poor people in the streets. I know that some of you are living in countries where there is no poverty, and I'm thinking of India, Pakistan, Palestine or the US. These photos show a shocking scale of poverty, I hope shadow.97 and usman will not be depressed.






Place Anatole France, located on the main street, was named "Badouillère" until 1925.
From the 1840s, the district of Badouillère became the showcase of the elites of St Etienne. And soon after its creation, from 1860, the square was surrounded by opulent buildings, like the Mimard Palace. In 1867, the place is re-developed, with the installation of a basin, a fountain and a rose garden; and in 1882, there were 71 trees.


It also hosted a time, from 1915, a replica of the statue of Liberty Bartholdi (see photo below), which is now visible instead Jules Ferry (Center two).



Rue du 11 Novembre.

Today, some photos of the buildings of Le corbusier in Firminy are available on the forum.


Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier, was born in 1887 in Switzerland. He studied classical architecture during several voyages. He discovered the solid bases of classical architecture, but was also curious to explore other cultures. Throughout his career, he continually mixed heritage and modernity.
His buildings are found in twelve countries and four continents.
After a career lasting sixty years, he died accidentally on 27 August 1965.



The cultural center of Firminy. The architecture looks interesting, but there is not a lot to see inside this "cultural center". They should relocate the main works of the Louvre here, such as the Mona Lisa.


There were very few visitors. That's an understatement: I was alone with the ticket vendor. I did not have to wait long to buy tickets. No Chinese, no tourist, no Parisian in sight. It was a tremendous relief.

Built between 1961 and 1965, the cultural centre is the only building completed in Firminy during the architect lifetime. Its concept was derived from the programme created by the Culture Minister André Malraux (1960s) and is based on making “structures conveying human genius” and accessible to all. 
The church is behind the tree.

Some  weird stuff in the “cultural center”








In 1960, Eugène Claudius Petit and the Parish Committee ordered a church from Le Corbusier. He worked on drawing up the plans until 1965, assisted by José Oubrerie and José Luis Miquel. After the architect’s death, the association “Le Corbusier pour l’église de Firminy-Vert” was created to raise the funds needed to finish the building.

A rainwaterrecovery system is deployed all around the building, covering horizontal loopholes positioned to match the spiral floor layout inside the nave. The three « light cannons » installed on the ridgepiece and on the
western façade are a specific feature of Le Corbusier’s architecture.

The Church of Saint Pierre
Le Corbusier designed the lower part to house parish activities (meetings, catechesis, etc.) and related parish facilities. It is today home to the Interpretation Centre dedicated to Le Corbusier’s work.



A few photos taken in the Church of Saint Pierre









The upper section is entirely occupied by the nave, with two chapels: one for the weekdays with a secondary altar, and the other for Sunday worship with the high altar. The latter is connected to the ground by means of a white pillar, which is independent from the main framework of the building.

Tonight, I'm going to post a few photos for the users of the forum.
These photos were taken last week in Saint Etienne, place Bellevue.

During a sunny day.


On the right you can see the restaurant La raclette.


Some booths at the Sunday marketplace.


This is where I can buy some wonderful melons.


We can also see many beggars here.
With me, aa1234779, Maher and Vasudev, no doubt this place would look like the court of miracles.
