What The Definition of My Name “Talin” is: (Pronouncing it Taleen).

Hello everyone, I am here to write to you today about what my name Talin really means. A lot of people have been asking me this and today I decided to write to you all about it. My name comes from a city in Armenia and there is a church after my name as well. Talin is a town in the Aragatsotn province of Armenia with a population of 5,371 people.

People with this name are presumed to be balanced and receptive to co-operation. They are the ideal persons for partnership and always look for peace. It is important and imperative for them to learn how to speak up, or they may be taken advantage of. Which is so true. I tend to have the habit of being taken advantage of emotionally and mentally and Sometimes I can get stuck on too many details and have feelings of loneliness. It is so true. I have been doing a lot more research on my name and the meaning of my name lately. A lot of people want to know the origins of my name and the definition, the personality of my name.

(Talin is one of the oldest residential areas in the region, confirmed by evidence dated back to the 2nd millennium B.C. (among others bronze swords). During the 2nd century, Talin is mentioned by the Greek geographer Ptolemy, which he calls Talina. Excavations in the vicinity of the Talin Cathedral, near the hill, have revealed ancient building materials as well as receptacles.)
Credits and Origins from Wikipedia —- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talin

My name is pronounced “Taleen” – In high school and going to school, at work in the past, I have always been called “Talen” or my name would be spelled Taline with an E at the end, and there are so many ways to spell my name, like Talyn, Taleen, Talene, Talina, Telen, Talinee, and so many other ways to spell my name. I love my name so much. A lot of people I meet, they ask my name and I said I am Talin, and they said wow, that is a beautiful and unique name that I never heard of. Of course when you’re not Armenian. When I do meet Non-Armenians. I know I get a lot of different pronunciations when it comes to my name, and I really don’t like correcting people because I know it’s not nice, but I like my name pronounced “Taleen” and in Armenians they pronounce my name “Taaleen”.

Our names give us a sense of individuality, no matter if it is common, rare, unique. All names have a significant meaning and it gives us our identity in this world of existence. I’ve been doing extensive research on my name and among other peoples names. I love research and reading on interesting things.

Well, that is all about my name. What does your name mean? Do you have a common, rare or unique name? What does it mean to you? would love to hear your stories. All the best.

 

Preserving North American Historic Architecture and It’s Landmarks

In recent news, I heard about a few landmarks in Toronto Canada will be shut down like Casa Loma because of Money, and that is a great course of concern for me. This is a big problem and it needs to be addressed. In North America, it seems to me that whenever a landmark gets old, or buildings get old with Historic Architecture, and when buildings get outdated, they automatically think its okay to demolish it or shut it down and build modern looking buildings that destroy a historic building and a site which was once a vital part of history. It is not right to tamper with historical monuments and buildings because when we look back in history books and pictures, people will wonder what happened to those buildings? Historians and those who are becoming historians and studying archeology and other forms of history subjects, it is important to preserve our history and not rebuild something new.

In All of Europe and some middle eastern countries, they are doing their best to conserve, preserve and make sure that artifacts, buildings, museums and other important parts of a country’s history does not fade away and that is exactly what North America is doing. A Hockey Arena the Maple Leaf Gardens were converted to a grocery store and a department store, it is not a cool thing to do, I’d rather it be there as a museum of Hockey history, rather than it being destroyed and used for other things. A lot of people were not happy about that. What I am saying is that, when a piece of history gets destroyed, that is something that Is not good for the future of Canada or the United States of America. Preserving and making sure that these are well kept so that future generations can visit and learn about it through history books, and set up trips to go see these monuments, buildings and actually get a feel of history. I am not saying that each historical monument or building is shut down or destroyed, but I am talking about the ones that are. It is crucial and vital for our identity as North Americans, and that is a big piece of the puzzle. If we destroy history, then what will we teach to our future generations?

This really alarmed me and I felt the need to share it with you all. It is important to raise awareness to stop from these things happening. We all need to do our best to prevent history from fading away and preserve it as much as possible.

Thoughts and Prayers For The Hurricane Sandy Victims & Affected Areas

Hello Everyone,

I’d like to extend my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the Hurricane Sandy Storm going around in the east coast and other parts of the world. I hope everyone is safe and has enough survival supplies in case things get really ugly. Hope everyone stays safe, and if you do not have to go out, please do not. Stay safe in your homes and if there is a real emergency going on, call 911 or your local emergency number and notify local authorities. For now stay warm and stay safe and secure in your homes. There have been reports of sharks swimming in the New Jersey New York Areas. be careful while in the water and please be cautious. This is a community effort, so please help each other out and be a team. work together, and if there is falling leavings that are being caught around the sewer drains, please remove the leaves and any debris around it and make the flow of the water go easy because there will be localized flooding if that is not taken care of. This is a time where everyone must help each other like everyday. Thousands of flights have been cancelled due to the storms and many airports have been on shutdown and have been evacuated. If it is not important and if you do not have to be out, just do yourself a favour and be home.

For safety precautions, I think it is important that work and school be cancelled to prevent accidents, to prevent loss of life and to prevent danger.

God bless everyone and just be safe.

Sincerely,

Littering Makes My Blood Boil

There is something, that I need to get off of my chest which makes my blood boil and gets on my last nerve. For the life of me, I am just so appalled by what I see and what I find that is not acceptable at all, and it is called littering. I find littering is a big problem and when I  am driving and see other people driving, they think its okay to toss out their tissue, gum and other things out the window and see it fly all over the place, and sometimes hitting the windshield of the person behind or on the sides. I see so much litter getting off the Highway 401 and on the grass and the sides, I would see a pile of trash everywhere, coffee cups, food bags from Mcdonalds, Tim Horton’s, and other places. I see coke cups, gum wrappers and cartons, candy and chocolate wrappers. You name it, its all there. I just don’t like it when I see this. Whatever happened to caring for the environment and preventing pollution from this garbage going around and harming where animals live and it goes into our waters, lakes, streams and rivers where fish and other animals live. I don’t think it is right to litter at all. I know that pollution also happens from Gas and all those cars and everything, but the more serious issue is trash. I see a lot of it. I mean when I say a lot, I am saying all the time.

There are Garbage Cans for a reason and for people to stop being lazy about throwing garbage in it’s place and not throw it anywhere they please. Its not a good thing and it doesn’t look so good for the city and for our health. A lot of germs are in the air because people fail to put trash where it belongs. If we do not take care of our earth by doing these simple things like not littering and everything, then our earth will not take care of us. Which is the honest truth. If you see someone deliberately and purposely littering, do not hesitate and be afraid to tell them in their face and say, Hi sir or Ma’am please pick up your garbage and put it in the trash can, thank you. It doesn’t matter of the reaction, you just did your job and your duty to take care of the earth and everything else.

Littering is terrible. I hope people will be more aware of what they do. Our earth is beautiful, but were making the earth ugly by littering and not taking care of it. Lets stand on littering and make it a thing of the past and look for a cleaner earth tomorrow. Don’t take advantage of the earth, we all live on. Lets help each other out, by eliminating litter.

 

The TV Show “The Big Bang Theory” My Love For That Show!

In the past couple of years, I have come to love this show, “The Big Bang Theory”. It is such a funny show, that I enjoy to watch. They make science, physics and all those things so much more fun. Now I am sure that a lot of people would agree with me, that Sheldon Cooper “Jim Parsons” is the best on that show and he makes the show, but all the cast and characters the casting directors have chosen is incredible. They all play a big role in the show and I am so addicted to it. Now on the Comedy channel the past 2 days, almost, the Marathon of this show has been playing and I cannot seem to get off my bum. I am so glued to the tv watching my favourite show, and I know they are re-runs but I still love the re-runs.

I love when Sheldon goes to Penny’s place and knocks three times and says her name after every three knocks. It is so funny. What really makes me laugh so hard is when he says “BAZINGA” then his hilarious laughing style, and when he is picky about everything, his special spot on the couch, what he eats, the room mate agreements, and so much more. I find that show to be a hit and I think its the best show out there. I am not much of a TV Watcher but I will sit and watch The Big Bang Theory. It makes me smile. I must say I am not really into the physics, chemistry, all that space stuff, but boy do they make it so fun for me.

Rajesh really cracks me up, he cannot talk to women until he has had something to drink. He is such a cute Indian. He makes me laugh so hard and I love the way he acts. Howard as well. I just wish we could one day see his Mother on the show who always yells out at Howard. Penny is such a hilarious girl. Shes an ordinary woman who moved next door to Leonard and Sheldon and she works at the Cheesecake factory and is an aspiring actress. LOL very funny.

A few stars have been on the show and its so awesome. Bottom line is that this show makes my day and everyday I watch the re-runs but now that the Marathon has been on, and will go on until 10:30 in the morning. its pretty funny!

If you do not watch this show, i recommend it to you big time. You will be laughing so hard. It will take time to fully understand the characters if you havent watched, but its a must.

BAZINGA! :)
