Ignas Krupavičius was (and probably will be) popular TV presenter and showmen in Lithuania:

But last autumn he dissapeared from TV screens. The reason of his dissapearance was unusual for showmen: he voluntarily went to serve his military duty. Now one year later he is finishing service and is ready to return back to TV.

This is my paradoxic reaction to Brexit. View from Lebanon: in this case this much better developed than neighbors country has significant problems. Ooh if they could solve their problems with referendum ...

Simple simplicity. But I like this simple design of new not big shop. The success lies in the fact that this shop is rather special - caled AiC (Armijai ir civiliams; For military and civilians). And this type of design is very successfull for the area of their interest:

E.g. I very like this project - "Lazunu namai":

This morning I needed to go to my work for a short time. Coming  back I unexpectedly saw military column in the streets. For the first time  I saw here so big military column. Bundeswehr in action :)

Probably they were heading to official part (opening ceremony ?) of the military exercises. But the parade is not bad :)

Some former industrial areas here see spectacular revival in recent years. But of course there are still very many industrial areas that desperately needs conversion.   One project announced few days ago looks particularly impressive. I don't have any idea how real the project is and how close the developers are to realization (anyway they announced the project on municipality site and prepared technical documentation) but this area really needs conversion. And the project is not bad :)

I can not to not return to the hot topic of recent days in this country - Lidl :) Yesterday I made my first visit to this shop :) Crowds were simply awfull and I don't made any purchases. I don't like to wait in big queues. My main aim was to check roughly prices and compare them with the prices in other supermarkets. The comparison left me uneasy why the people huddle in these shops.

For some facts I was surprised. E.g. I was completely surprised that all 2,0% "Pilos" milk (clearly of Polish production since in Lithuania milk is with 2.5% or 3.5% fats) was completely bought out: I saw one middle age man who took last 6 (sic!) packages of this milk. I completely can't understand the reason of such popularity: the price of 1l of this milk is 0.65 EUR. I came to Lidl after visit to another supermarket where I bought 1l 3.5% milk for the price of 0.50 EUR .... I heard the women talking about sour cream price: "what a good price". The 400g 30% "Pilos" sour cream costs 0.85 EUR. Just a half an hour ago I bought 450g 30% sour cream in another supermarket for 0.86 EUR ...
Of course there were some good prices. E.g. 200 g. 83% butter for 0.55 EUR looks attractive (Aktion! price). Some huddling was understandable: e.g. there were very many women in the department of cosmetics. This department sells "Lidl" own brand "Cien" women cosmetics. I completely can not understand the prices of this sector but you can not find "Cien" in any other place except "Lidl". I also was unhappy that people bought out all "Lidl" own brand "Toujours" diapers :)
