The takeaway is that despite its steep costs, we can’t afford to not support an idea like fusion.

Congratulations my dear colleagues in the fusion field! This is definitely a very important step towards a better future.

As an expat in Spain, I don't really miss Slovene food, language or Slovene people (well, except my family/love/friends of course) that much, but I have to admit that I crave for the Nature (or natural environment) of Slovenia. That's where it feels like home...mountains, lakes, rivers and forests... The warm familiar feeling of belonging, not to the country but to the land.

Barely three hours from Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana, Lake Bohinj is in the middle of nowhere – out of season and time – and it’s wonderful.

I am not really a fan of Klemen Slakonja, but I have to give him "thumbs up" for this catchy song that could easily win Eurovision Song Contest. :) This song is for +Nicodin Bogdan as a thank you for many interesting posts on G+. :)

There was this guy (wearing a baseball cap with an inverted {satanic} pentagram) selling some junk on a metro. Of course not a single person paid any attention to him...except a young priest with a clerical collar, who actually offered him money. I'm not a fan of religion, but when the guy with a cap said "No quiero tener nada contigo" and left the metro while cursing, I felt a bit bad for both.
