Non omnis moriar... 🇵🇱



Our most active Stomil Olsztyn fans visited very important place in Polish London. They went to pay tribute to famous Poles who died in the UK, far from our country. Their ashes are located in St. Bobola Church, close to the Polish University Abroad. You can remember our Roman is Strategic Development Director for that Polish charity organisation. He took Maks to such an unique Polish cemetery after all the week of hard trainings with Tottenham. Maks completed another stage of their “Player Development Programme”. What Roman did made us even more proud of Maks. Roman always says we have to take care about future with respect to the past. What we do now is not for ourselves only. It’s for all to succeed. This way our life becomes somehow more important, when good fruits of our living stay in the world after our death. Roman studied also Philosophy, he is very wise man. You can see the sentence: “Non omnis moriar”? It’s Horace who said it first. It means: “I shall not all die”. Our Roman says it not only to Maks when he comes to London. Playing for Tottenham can be bigger success than playing for Stomil today. But not for Roman. Roman says both clubs are public interest entities and playing for them can make good people part of good history. It’s obvious. The point is to believe we can do more good when we act for more good. So, we do believe.

Player of the day



You know what’s the most destructive thinking in your life? It’s bad thinking. Bad thinking like: I’ll not manage, everything will go wrong or me not good enough. It prevents you from spreading your wings. We’ve got 21st century, we live in one Europe, we have skills and education but nobody but us go with such a thinking day after day. Maks came with it to me even now, one year after he started his adventure with Tottenham. Last year he performed quite good, so he surprised me this year. What we were talking about all the morning, on our way to the Premier League premises, yesterday? It was resetting his mind: from poor thinking to strategic thinking. He was full of fears about his shape, his condition and so on. Mostly bad things in his mind when we got on the Tube train. When we got off everything looked different, I did really hope. Took all the hour to do it with him. He is young and openminded, therefore he succeeded on the same day. You see what he’s wearing on our selfie? Taken after the first day of his present training with Premier League club! It’s an award he got: “Player of the day”. This means nobody performed all the day better than him - Polish boy from Poland. Ladies wrote yesterday about good changes happening to good people. They don’t happen at all - when good people don’t think much good changes are possible.

Best regards from London, Roman

Good changes for good people



Nobody in the family thought in the past it could be possible what does happen to us now. We can say good changes happen to good people when good people co-operate for good changes. Here we go again then, with our Maks and his Tottenham challenge. All the family excited about this. And about our Roman, who made everything he was able to do to let Maks develop his football talent with that Tottenham - yes, it’s English Premier League foorball club! 👏🏻💪🏻👌🏻 What a luck in life when you are a part of progressive team of people who take care about more than thier own good. Thanks to the God for that. No other explanation in our minds than just God helping us to change for good our small part of the big world.

Masurian Mars



We are happy to announce we take part in the UK Space Agency competition. The point is to name the newest Mars explorer with a catchy brand. Our Roman speaks English best in our family, so it’s his idea we have introduced. You know us, we love Masuria. Masuria plays somehow a leading role in our entry then. Details - let’s hope - soon 🤞🏻🙂

Masurian Croatia



When we realised this year World Cup is not for us, because our team looked rather like on a holiday than on the challenge, our family invaded Croatia! Croatians looked good enough on the pitch in Russia to support them while resting in their country. Unforgettable experience to watch what was happening over there thanks to the Croatian team fighting like true eagles. All the Croatia was like exploding volcano of positive energy when they won over Argentina and England. We wish one day something like that happened in Poland!!! 🇵🇱🤞🏻❤️ You know our Roman is a great passionate about the World Cup 2030? Have a look: here... He says such a big deal can take place in our country, if we co-operate better to each other. It’s probably the worst what happens to Poland, in his opinion, that Polish people hardly ever play as a team these days.

Masurian wild cherry



Summer walk across Masurian off-roads brings good memories from our childhood. Wild cherry tree always ment a lot of pleasure for us. All we like cherries but our Grazyna loves them at most. She can eat everything what includes any kind of cherry. Obviously it was she, who as the first in our family tasted cherry pudding! 🙂

Galindia, called: 'Masurian Heaven', is an unique resort located by the lake Bełdany. You can really experience some kind of time travel over there. It looks like a compound of ancient tribe of Galindians, who used to live in Mrągowo area as well as close to lakes Śniardwy and Mamry. Staff working at Galindia wear very old style clothes. There are sculptures relating to habits and beliefs of Galindians. A few times a year you can watch performances bringing former rituals to the present day. Go discover everything by yourself, a lot of nice surprises in front of you: www.galindia.com.pl

Save the bees in Masuria



The number of bees in the world is systematically decreasing. Unfortunately, it's cos of us at most. We make too much pollution like exhausts, detergents or pesticides to let bees do their job in nature. What would happen to the muesli without honey is even not the point. The point is concerning the natural process of pollination. You know bees do it in a best way. Nature wouldn't manage without them. Therefore we ask for saving each one bee you can meet in Masuria while your holiday stay. Let it be, don't kill at all. All we need bees. Thank you in advance and best regards to you from our family team as well as our friend from Mrągowo, Maria Olszowska, who took the pic your eyes can enjoy above.
