    I love my family and all that fun that entails such as 4H meeting, FFA meeting, Cloverbuds, Michigan Trail Riding Association group rides on our horses. I love to knit, bake sweeties and other treats.

    I love gardening and preserving my harvests.

    I love to drink green teas and coffee.

    I have a growning love for a certain country oversea, which I find has many of the same founding ideas and beliefs I hold dear to my own heart.

  1. Ok, this is aimed more towards my American friends who know how we're taught to proper address envelopes and packages. What is the proper formatting for addressing the so I can FedE or UPS to Turkey?In the States we follow this format.Janan Horne112233 ABSD DriveCrazyville, MI 48349I'm sending a package to a friend. It has to go to Izmir.HELP!!!Love,Janan
  2. How funny and I actually understood the "smashed bees".
  3. I quit...I'll never learn Turkish...LOL. My family has all suffered strep throat this week. How would I say that in Turkish. boğaz ağrısı ben?
  4. Ewwww, not pictures of the procedure....gross! I could hardly stand to take care of babies peepee after they were circumcized, the poor lads. I was talking about the pictures of my friends child in his lovely clothes and his sister also had a lovely dress too. I understand that now.As for leaving this forum...nope. I've made friends. I hope I've become a friend to some.I didn't know it was one sided. Girls don't get a celebration like the boys nor get to be bridemaids...that is one sided!
  5. Still reeling from the 104*F...Michigan tends to get hot and very muggy, but 104?????Sheesh, that is HOT!
  6. I googled it and from all the pictures of the celebrations and the look of pride in the young "mens" eyes...it is so touching and sweet. My friend's son had his celebration in August and he posted many pic's on Facebook. Now that I've researched it I can understand it better. BTW...I'm getting tired of researching...!!!! grrrrr:( LOL, only four nore weeks of this block of classes and then I get to venture into Mass Media Overview and history and Introduction to Philosophy...whewwwww.
  7. Thanks Abi, you are always so helpful and informative.
  8. I am curious about circumcision celebrations? Is this a Turkish tradition or is it practiced in all of Islam? Can someone please explain this to me. From a western view, I had my all my son's penises circumcisized shortly after birth. I know the Jewish celbrate with a Brist (sp). Also, what is a jinn? I've come across this term in "My name is Red" by Orhan Pamuk. Does it mean an evil spirit becuase that is how I am interpreting it.Again, I thank you all for your help.Janan
  9. Now that is very sweet and romantic. I knew my husband for many years as a friend and then on the day a mutual friend got married...I noticed him in a romantic sense. I can still remember this so vividly, my sweet man was in a suit and looked wonderful. So I turned on my charm...hehehe and actually flirted with him. The rest is history. 18 years later I can still look at him and get a bellyful of butterflies...Bravo for you and your wife.
  10. I'm still trying to convert the temp's to what I can understand...uh let's see 40 degree C is equivilent to ....Oh MY GOODNESS!!!!! 104 degree F. I'd melt and likely burn to a crisp in the process...bumping SPF to 70. LOL
  11. I suppose I do mean next summer...LOL. Good call there. I should have said this upcoming summer. Izmir is the first city I really started googling & studying about Turkey, so it is the one I know the most about. Good point about the heat. I'm not a huge fan of super hot weather. I'm a person who will tan...eventually but it usually entales many sunburns first and copious amount of Alor Vera Gel. Will need to buy SPF 50. I'm a sensible person so that shouldn't be an issue. I don't understand what a bucket shop is though? Please tell me.
  12. I was wondering about something and hope you, my new friends can help me. I would like to take a few weeks this summer and visit/volunteer/learn/study in Turkey. I'm wanting to stay near the Izmir area. I would like to know if tenatively how expensive it would be for me to have a three week stay. Would I still be able to access my online classes from Turkey? Can anyone direct me to a volunteer angency in the area of Izmir. Air fare is going to be a monster. I googled it and nearly had a stroke as it was $1800.00 for a round trip ticket. I've no clue as to how much a home to rent or a room to rent would cost or food. I have never traveled oversea. I have been out of the country if you count going through Cananda to get to up state New York. LOL!I would be alone because of the price of airfare and I am wondering if there will be a problem with this culturally? I'm curious about this and not trying to be offensive. I'm just wondering about this. I've talked with my husband about this and he is very supportive of my going and learning more, it would be perfect if I could make this into a learnign "vacation" for lack of another term. Any suggestions?
