Julianna Varg 70-års fest

Posted on

Julianna Varg fyllde 70 år, och firade detta med ett 80-tal speciellt inbjudna gäster hos Gynge i Trollbäcken, Tyresö. Det blev en riktig sort födelsedagsfest, med härlig mat, tårta och fint uppträdande med Curt Borkmann, Eddie Oliva, m.fl. Kvällen fortsatte inpå natten, och alla gäster hade en fantastisk födelsedagsfest.

Bert-Åke Varg fick sin teaterutbildning vid Calle Flygare Teaterskola i Stockholm. Han slog igenom som grammofonsångare med Kökspolkan 1956. Han visade sig tidigt vara en mångsidig artist och lärde sig att steppa på 16 dagar när han fick hoppa in som ersättare för Nils Poppe i musikalen Lorden från gränden i slutet av 1950-talet. Han var från 1960 gift med Annette Varg (1936-1993) och har sedan han blivit änkling gift om sig med Julianna Varg (född 1947 i Ungern). Han har tre barn.

Monte San Salvatore – Lugano

Posted on Updated on

In Switzerland, travel to Lugano Paradiso and stay in a nice comfortable hotel (Novotel Paradiso) and from there walk some 100 meters to the Funicular San Salvatore. It’s will be a day of new discovery, and a visit never to forget. You choose on the summit to descent by funicular again, ore by nature & hiking trails.

Experience the The Sugarloaf Mountain of Switzerland – Monte San Salvatore  –  Quote: “You need to have been up there in person, if you want to get an idea of its greatness and magnificence, and then that moment will become one of the most beautiful and unforgettable experiences in your whole life.” C. C. Lorenz Hirschfeld.

Way back in the year 1200 pilgrims made their way up to the mountain summit on foot in order to pay their respects to the Son of God, who according to ancient legend took rest here afore his heavenly ascent.

In 1213, the Bishop of Como, Lord and Master of Vallugano sold his property in Ciona and the mountain known in ancient times as “Bellenio” to the Chapter of San Lorenzo in Lugano. In those years, at the top of the mountain there was already a small chapel dedicated to San Salvatore (hence the name). The canons of San Lorenzo soon turned it into a small church.

Reference to the church’s original appearance dates back to 1414: a piece of parchment kept in the archives at the municipality of Carona, describes: “A white mountain against a shady blue backdrop. On the summit the church of San Salvatore with its steeple”. During the Feast of the Ascension in 1680, the Chapter of San Lorenzo transferred ownership of the church and the summit to the Confraternity of St Marta and the Good Death.

After 23 years, in 1703, the Confraternity decided to demolish the original church and to build a new one. The following year the foundations were laid and in 1719 the building works were completed. In 1722 it was decided to complete the building beneath as a residence with a tavern next to it in order to set up an “inn”.

Over the last two centuries the history of the area has provided us with a wealth of information on the many efforts made by the Confraternity and later the Funicular Company as, respectively, the owner and guardian of the site. On 26 March 1890 the Funicular began operating, and in 1943 the Lightning Research Centre was set up.

Mankind has always been fascinated by this universal phenomenon and has long tried to unveil its mysteries. “Tracking down lightning” is the title of this new exhibition. Through the history of the lightning research centre, a world-renowned laboratory equipped with sophisticated technology for monitoring and measuring lightning which operated on the summit from 1943 to 1982, directed by Professor Berger of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, the exhibition illustrates the unusual activities that for nearly 40 years defined the history of the mountain. The current from direct lightning strokes where collected by two towers on mount San Salvatore and grounded via a shunt resistor. Special cables transmit the voltage signal to the oscilloscopes in the laboratory. Tower 1 is the todays Swisscom TV transmitter, and tower 2 is located further north on mount San Carlo. The measuring instruments where located inside a Faraday cage made of fine wire net, which served to protect instruments and observers.
A cathode ray oscilloscope and the exhibited mirror-galvanometer oscilloscope recorded the current of direct strokes to the towers. Other instruments recorded the negative and positive coronal discharges known as St. Elmo’s fire. Thunderstorm detectors enable precise statistics to be compiled of all such activity in the vicinity of this mountain peak. Special cameras also recorded the chronological development of lightning flashes. Every year each of the two towers was struck by lightning up to about 100 times.

In 1969 Swiss Post Office television and radio antennae were erected. Last but not least, in 1999 the two organisations established the San Salvatore Museum, illustrating the proactive role they both still play today.

Around these important structures, year after year, the Confraternity managed to enrich and beautify the church on the summit. It became a focal point for the faithful and of great significance for the entire Lugano area. This was reconfirmed in 1900 with the erection of a huge iron cross, historic testimony to the importance of the mountain for the Funicular Company and the Confraternity of St Martha and the Good Death.

Enjoy your lunch ore dinner at The Ristorante Vetta with open air terrace and a panoramic veranda can welcome over 200 people. It offers gourmet menus inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, with healthy products of the season, fresh from the market. It is comfortable, practical and ideal for lunches, aperitifs, coffee breaks and snacks, or for relaxing and enjoying the breathtaking views on the summit of the beautiful Monte San Salvatore.

Ђорђа) also known as Oplenac (Опленац), is the mausoleum of the Serbian and Yugoslavroyal house of Karađorđević located on top of the Oplenac Hill in the town of Topola, Serbia. The church of Oplenac was founded by King Peter I of Yugoslavia. Many members of the royal house are buried in the church, in the crypt beneath the church, or in the church yard.

Apart from the two tombs inside the church (Karađorđe’s in the southern apse; and Peter I in the northern apse), there are 26 other members of the dynasty whose eternal place of rest is in this mausoleum. Six generations of the Karađorđević family have been buried in this church:

KOVAČEVIĆ WINERY

Posted on

The Kovačević Winery (Vinarija Kovačević) has a 100 years old tradition of vine growing and wine production. In 2001 the winery was modernized and the winery is now using the latest technology. In 2001 the winery produced 10000 bottles of wine and in 2009 this number grew to 350000, and the production of sparkling wines has started using traditional methods.

The winery owns 5 acres of vineyards which are located on the southern slopes of Fruška Gora.

Apart from the winery, the family also runs the Wine House (Vinska Kuća) where you can experience the hedonistic mixture of authentic Vojvodina dishes and wines from the winery. The Wine House contains an ”a la carte” restaurant, a wine tasting room and a summer garden with beautiful views of Fruška Gora.

Continuously in pursuit of quality, the efforts and hard work  invested by the owner of the winery, Miroslav Kovačević, provided that his wines found their place at the dining table as part of official protocol when formal dinners with government dignitaries and high-ranking officials are hosted by the General Secretariat of the President of the Republic of Serbia. Therefore, some of the most distinguished politicians had an opportunity to taste wines from Kovačević winery. Here we will mention just Russian President Mr. Dmitry Medvedev, Vice-President of the USA  Mr. J. Biden, Croatian President Mr. I. Josipović, German Chancellor Ms. A. Merkel, etc.

HISTORY

Family Aleksandrović has been involved in viticulture and winemaking for more than 100 years. Our great grandfather Miloš Aleksandrović was one of the founders of Vinča Winegrowers Cooperative in 1903.

Until the beginning of World War Two the family had 30,000 vines and it always maintained the close cooperation of the viticulturists and winemakers of the royal cellars. The tradition had been continued by our grandfathers Života and Aleksandar Aleksandrović.

When in 1991, a famous royal cellar master Živan Tadić, who emigrated to Canada after the World War Two, learned that the family Aleksandrovic reinvigorates winemaking traditions of the Oplenac region, he send to Vinča the original recipe of ‘Trijumf’ – the best wine of the royal cellars, that was enjoyed before the World War Two on many royal courts of Europe. Based on the old yellow manuscript we were creating new pages of the long family history of viticulture and winemaking, strongly relying on the experience of our ancestors, scientific results and latest technological advances.

A new phase in the development of Aleksandrović Winery started in 2000 after the political changes in Serbia, when we completed a new winery and acquired the state-of-the-art equipment for production of top quality wines.

The family Aleksandrović with its wines is the leading Serbian private winery at present.

Currently available in the USA, Holland, Denmark, Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro, Russia, China, Japan, and Australia.

Gladys Del Pilar Bergh

Gladys del Pilar och tvillingsystern Ann Consuelo föddes 1967 i Ecuador i Sydamerika och tillbringade sina första år på ett nunnekloster i norra Ecuador under svåra förhållanden. Då nunnorna inte behandlade barnen särskilt väl nådde ryktet Sverige och en kvinna som hade vigt sitt liv åt att hjälpa barn i världen som hade det svårt. Med kort varsel adopterades de till Örebro och Sverige vid nyss fyllda sju år.

Gladys och Anns mamma märkte snart deras stora musikintresse och såg till att de fick gå i den Kommunala Musikskolan. Under sitt praktikår i gymnasiet jobbade hon på klädaffären Gul&Blå i Örebro. Dit kom en dag sångaren i gruppen ”Big Deal” och frågade om systrarna ville bli deras körtjejer.

Tvillingarna var med i ”Big Deal” i fyra år. Hennes syster hoppade av tidigare för att bli mamma. Under den tiden hann de skaffa en komplett studio. Gladys del Pilar och teknikern som jobbade där bildade gruppen ”Real Power” och spelade in House- och club musik. De fick skivkontrakt med SWE MIX som var ett skivbolag som vågade satsa på den nya musikvågen med House/Hip Hop/Soul– och Dance-musik.

Lördagen den 1 Juli, 2017 var dags för årets sommarfest hemma hos Gladys och hennes man Christer Bergh. Festen har gått och blivit lite av en tradition, och genomfördes i år för 5 gången. Många härliga gäster som bl.a Rongedal, Viktoria Tocca, Jessica Folker, Kayo, Conuelo del Pilar var på plats, och det blev mycket sång och musik hela natten lång. Mycket god och hemlagad mat (Gladys gillar matlagning), samt massor att dricka med eller utan alkohol.

Cawa Media fick äran att vara på plats under festen:
