Ford Fiesta – Diesel or not to Diesel

Hi all,

it was long time since last post….well long time I tend to write that in my previous posts but it is true. Back to Fiesta, I guess most of you know this nice little car. It belongs to super mini class of cars, mostly due to trunk space.

Why Diesel or no diesel you ask? Well it’s depends. If you have Fiesta mark VI. made before year 2010 you have probably TDCi diesel 16-valve engine. Those powerhouses tend to have degenerative oil problem and also that this engine is little bit too much complex. In year 2010 Ford introduced new engine TDCi diesel 8-valve engine (luckily that one I have in my car), which is more reliant and construction is more simplistic. Engine in my car is 70kw, 95hp. Max speed is 178km/h…I must say that is quite easy to achieve this speed and its pity that then speed is reduced by speed limiter.

Honestly I am not sure what I wanted to say by this post….ecology of my car is quite good. Current econorm is Euro 6 and my car is Euro 5. So when you are driving behind me no black smoke to your window :-).


See you next time.

The Story of Great Friendship – 2

Hi all,

this is second part of The Story of Great Friendship. The first part is on the link below.

First part 🙂

Act 3 – The past

50 years ago. The main hall was busy, all devoted themselves to tasks like ants in the anthill. At the top back of the hall was control room where Jones was reading technical report. All system are working and productivity went up more than 50%. “With this rate we will be able to test Setsuna soon.” Jones thought. 

“How is it going?” Tom asked. “It’s going quite well. We are ahead of plan.” Jones answered. “According to news war is not going as it should. I really hope that we launch Setsuna soon”.

Act 4 – Open Sesame

David start to remove soil under his foot and after a while he found metal object. “What is it?” David asked himself. It looked like some kind of hatch. There was text on them saying, “Lambda R&D Laboratory”.

David tried to open the hatch, but he didn’t know how. The boy was the only standing above it and was thinking what lays below. After few minutes David noticed of three mark where middle of hatch was. He touch them and felt tension but nothing happen.

Then suddenly hatch opened. David was shooked with his body and he carefully looked inside.

To be continued…..

Thank you and see you next time.

Song Of The Week 46

Hi all,

it has been a while since my last song of the week. Maybe it was mainly because I didn’t find song good enough. But, I had the right song right in my headphones all the time :-).

As you can see on featured image is Leonard Cohen. I can proudly say that I firstly heard songs from him as child still in my moms belly :-D. She used to play album, I’m your man on gramophone. Luckily we still have that record and also gramophone and I can play it.

I recently read great book written by mr. Cohen, the Favorite Game. It’s 10/10 book a novel which will make you think about your life.


Thank you and see you next time.

The Story of Great Friendship

Hi all,

I have for you author’s story written by St. John Smith. The Story of Great Friendship between boy and machine. Where it will lead? What will be the conclusion of this  intriguing path?

I am glad that John wrote this story in English so I don’t need to translate it or like last time publish it in Czech. On the other hand sorry Czech readers :-). And now the story.

The Story of Great Friendship

Act 1 – New Guy

“So you are the new guy who moved to our city?” Trevor said. David look at Trevor and said “yeah, I am. Is there any problem?”. Trevor just called his gang and without saying anything he punched David in to face.

Trevor took a deep breath and shout at David, “From now on your life will be hell.” David was slowly getting up and then suddenly with great burst he punched Trevor right in to his chin. Trevor didn’t expect that and from that shock he didn’t notice that David slipped away.

Act 2 – What lies in the woods

In the forest behind the school, David starts to slowing down. “Those bastards, I will show them one day.”, David thought. He was walking and the scenery was mostly the same tall pines everywhere and sometimes beam of sunlight.

David was walking around 2 hours when the sound of his footsteps changed. From faint rustle in to the metal rumble. David thought that maybe some old junk is lying below his foot. But he was wrong.


ok next acts will be there soon…maybe 🙂


How I can’t afford a new car

Hi all,

about two weeks ago my old car was hit by another car. The damage is not so severe but repair cost overcomes the cost of the car it self. Car still runs, but my wife don’t want to use it any more and me as well.

So technically I don’t have a car….we saved some money but its not enough for decent car. I don’t think that we are that wealthy to buy cheaper used car since it is obvious that that car will soon have some technical problems. Sure we can take loan but that’s no go for me. Czech republic is nice country, the living cost is not that high but also salary is low and prices of other things are same as in Germany. To compare my salary of reporting analyst to reporting analyst in Germany I am on 1/3 of German salary!

Still my salary is above Czech average and still you can’t afford a thing with it. I can’t imagine how this will go after we will have kids. Now the rent is taking more than half of my net salary! I tell you it is hard….

What I should do? Should I take second job? So I wouldn’t have any personal life and I would be slave without free time. What I am doing wrong?

I will probably ask for salary rise, since feedback on my job is good and I think they can’t afford to loose me.

Making art with Nintendo

Hi all,

two weeks ago I bought Nintendo 2DS. I wanted to play some new Pokemon games like Pokemon X/Y or Moon/Sun :-). But that is another story.


What I want to talk about it cool APP/Game called New Art Academy. Below I will show you some of the paintings I done within this APP. I know that some of the pictures sucks 🙂 I am not an artist but it fun to try it. With Art Academy you will go through different techniques and basically you can learn how to paint in real life.

I think the best painting is the Melon one and worst drawing is the wind mill 🙂 If you have Nintendo 3DS or 2DS go on and try New Art Academy its fun and you can use your stylus more extensively “finally :-)”


See you next time.
