BADEK’S NEWS (Babulka’s and Dedulka’s News)

Responding to the recent request by some people who want a little more information about not only travel, books and crafts, but what is happening around us in both our community where ever it may be and the world.

The words “Babulka and Dedulka” (what means Grandma and Grandpa) are abbreviated to “BADEK”s plus the word “News”. One can find the BADEK’S NEWS in the Category “Reading and Discussion Club”. It is something to talk about? Isn’t it?

In what we write there will always be a room for different opinions both yours and ours, but please, in comments you need to formulate them instead of promising to do so. Everybody sees and interprets news differently, this depends on the amount of information is given and how it is represented. We are not professional journalists but ordinary people who are trying to see and understand events which are happening around us.A toucan perched on a branch in Brazil.
