It says it allEdit
- Well, thanks God, not all Polish girls are slightly eccentric just like me. My name is not on the T-shirt:-( Well, that is because my name is not popular. If I see such a T-shirt I will buy one for you and send it to Australia:-) I only don't know how you will explain that to Australian girls, but it will be your problem, not mine:-) --Seleucidis (talk) 20:20, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Could you help to translate this please?Edit
Hi there, here I have a short text that I am using to send to Flickr photographers to request that the relicence their stream under CC-BY-SA. I have quite a few Polish streams to contact, and I think that if I make the request in Polish I might be more successful. Would you please be so kind as to help to translate that text there for me, so that I can start using it in the near future. Any help appreciated. Cheers, russavia (talk) 18:14, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
- I was (kindly) surprised to find a citation of Saint Faustina on your user page. I lived in Kraków for some time. I visited – the Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy in Kraków-Łagiewniki, which is dedicated to Faustina. It is a modern church, but there are many old, historical churches in Kraków, the most famous is  and probably the smallest ones are: this one and that one. Yet another citation from a Polish woman Irena Sendler: ... people should be divided only into good and bad. The colour of skin, religion, ancestry or status – are not of importance. The only thing that counts is what kind of human being they are (my translation), but ... a person must be rescued when drowning, regardless of religion and nationality or other factors in my opinion. Greetings. Seleucidis (talk) 10:19, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks Seleucidis for sharing your memories and experience on Saint Faustina and Devine Mercy. I would like to visit those places one day. I just read Irena Sendler and her thoughts and life are very inspiring. Today I visited the page of Saint Casimir curiously to find his details as I have to attend a wedding ceremony on next week at St. Casimir's Church, Kollam.
- "... a person must be rescued when drowning, regardless of religion and nationality or other factors in my opinion." Do you think I'm on the opposite side? No. Thank you for sharing your valuable time with me. JKadavoor Jee 13:35, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
- JKadavoor, thank you very much. It looks delicious and I like rice and dishes with rice. I usually choose brown rice, because it contains more vitamins and minerals, but yes, white rice has a more royal taste. I have just read the article about Onam feest (there is even a short article on pl-wp) and I have read about OnaSadya food celebration. Unfortunately we don't have an article about OnaSadya on pl-wp. I have found a few sources written in English about OnaSadya, so maybe one day I will try to write a small article about it. I am interested in cuisines of other countries and I have contributed some articles about Dutch cuisine. Articles about dishes from other countries are always very popular and have a lot of views as DYK. I have also found two sources of pictures:  and  about OnaSadya. Do you maybe know if we can upload them to Commons? Or maybe you will be able to make your own pictures illustrating Onam and OnaSadya? It would be very nice if you could. I wish you a good time during Onam. Greetings. Seleucidis (talk) 09:42, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
|G'day, just a quick greeting wishing you and your family happy holidays and all the best for 2014. And of course, a big thank you for putting a leg up by doing what you do on Commons, and helping to make it the fantastic project that it is. Greetings from a warm west coast of Aussie. russavia (talk) 02:01, 24 December 2013 (UTC)|
