Welcome to the forum. No need to apologize for not knowing English well. It is not your first language and hell, there are people whose first language IS English and they cannot speak it properly. XD

I am interested in WW2 myself. I also love studying foreign language when I have the time. I want to be fluent in Finnish and Russian. Smile

Enjoy!

Thanks, I'm glad to be here Smile
Ukraine and Russia have people who really bad speak the native language too. By the way, many people suppose that Ukrainians think on Ukrainian but if we're talking about the eastern part it is not true. As for me, I think on the Russian. Ukrainian language is only on the documents.
Daenerys, if you want to speak Russian I can help with a practice Very Happy

My goofy posting name is beekay, but my real one is Brian.

I didn't discover ♫ ♥ Tarja ♥ ♫ until January 20th 2012. That's a story I'll tell another day. It was rather epic. Needless to say I'm a new comer to the Symphonic Metal Sub-Genre of Metal and I am now a fan of many bands, but ♫ ♥ Tarja ♥ ♫ will always be #1 with me. I've always been into hard rock and metal since I was a teenager in....er, the late 70s. I also like an artist or two in particular in genres I generally don't like as a rule (ie. Diana Krall--jazz; Gordon Lightfoot--folk etc.). I also like Classical Music, too, including Jean Sibelius, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky.

I like sports. I'm too old to play them anymore. Body is just too beat up...too many surgeries. However, I like to watch: Hockey, Football (American, Canadian and Australian Rules), Baseball, Soccer and Basketball.

I like to read. Fantasy Literature is my favourite. Authors, such as, Glen Cook, Stephen Donaldson, L. E. Modesitt, jr., Steven Erikson & Ian C. Esslemont, George R. R. Martin and Tolkien are some of what makes up my private library. Sci-Fi classics from Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clark and Alan Dean Foster, are there too.

I also like to read History and War History. The majority of my library is comprised of books pertaining to World War II. Although I have accumulated over the years some knowledge of all the theatres of operation, my main focus is the Canadian military history during the war, the North Africa theatre and the Eastern Front. I too, like AnneLumi above, am fascinated with armoured warfare.

AnneLumi: have you looked up the 'world war 2' group on Facebook? We are just a bunch of regular folks from all over the world who post whatever they can find on the war and sometimes we can get some lively discussions, too. Either way it is for anyone interested in the war. In the search box, type it in exactly the way I have it above....we have 2,373 members as I type this....so check it out to see if you wish to join in too.....

Cool! The legendary T-34! What a surprise the Wehrmacht had when they came up against them for the first time in 'Great Patriotic War'.

I've read too many books about WWII to list here. It would take quite a while to type them all out...lol. I plan to upload to my Facebook Photos section pictures of the WWII collection that I have in my personal library in about a couple of weeks. I'll let you know when I'm done and if you are curious you can take a look. I once lived in a city with two universities (University of Waterloo and Wilfred Laurier University) and both allowed local residents to borrow books, which I did. So I've read more than I have and I haven't quite read all the ones I have...yet. I also have hundreds of hours of documentary videos on WWII, most of which I've watched.

It is a blessing and a curse to have lived long enough to amass a collection of this type, but it takes up space and sometimes I lose track of what have and haven't read or watched.....lol.

Hi, my name is Enrique and was born in Cuba and lived in Europe for 12 years. I am a long time fan of Tarja and I am a big fan of music on vinyl and movies. I built my own 9 foot wide home theatre screen where I enjoy movies and concerts.

Wehrmacht was surprised by soviet tanks! I really proud of our grandfathers for what a miracle they created. By the way, T-34 was developed in Kharkov where I live.
Can I make a thread about the Great Patriotic War or we can continue our talk in the thread about books?Very Happy

My username is Midieval1 but I go by Charlie and my given name is Charles. I am a certified Auto Tech. My interests at the moment include audiophile music systems and designing, building and programming my own computer systems. I have been interested in music since I was a teenager. I was a bassist in a band in high school and still have a guitar and practice amp. I hope someday to have enough money to collect some of my favorite vintage basses. I first heard Tarja when she was with Nightwish and have several of their dvds and cds. I now also have some of Tarja's dvds and cds and am looking forward to listening to some of the new music I understand she is now recording. I hope someday she will read one of my comments that I have yet to post. I wish all of you well and hope Tarja keeps singing forever.

Welcome Charlie. Tarja's album is done being recorded and will be released in August. This album is said to be very dark and some said very difficult to listen to. Those who went to the pre-listening.

I wanted to learn guitar at one point in my life and even had one, but I never did take the time to learn. Same thing went with piano. I have a keyboard I never use. :/ One day I will practice I'm sure.

Well, might as well introduce myself. Hi, I'm Steve and I'm a Tarjaholic.
"Hiiiii, Steeeeeve."
I only got into Nightwish a couple years ago, and liked Tarja so much to check out her solo work. She was an instant favorite, but I decided I'd give it a year of listening to her before making her my absolute favorite, just to be fair. That year has passed, and she pretty much now IS my favorite. I still love NW, and hold no ill feelings toward anyone after the open letter. I also refuse to take part in the ridiculous Tarja/Annette/Floor flame war. .....But I still prefer Tarja Razz

About me? I recently received my BFA in Digital Art and Animation, and one day would like to get into the gaming industry, though unstable as it currently may be. I also play piano just for by-ear, solely for fun, and don't use sheets. I go by "FountainKeeper" on YouTube, and I've just made my 100th piano vid after a year-and-a-half-long hiatus. The next vid I have planned will be one of Tarja's. And no, it won't take a year and a half to get to Laughing

Vid 100: Blind Guardian - Sacred Worlds - Piano Duet

Welcome to the fanclub Steve! cheers Congrats on receiving you BFA! I will take a look at your youtube soon. Smile I always wanted to learn piano, but was too lazy to take the time out to practice. I still have a keyboard though so I can always still learn. Razz
