wonderful piece of technology is made of shiny black plastic and is
small enough to fit in my coat pocket. It seems equipped with little
headphones which are light and comfortable to wear.
reason I like my personal stereo so much is because it enables me to
sit in my room and listen to music while I am doing my homework for
college, or when I’m simply relaxing. The sound doesn’t disturb
my family – in fact, they don’t even know when I’ve got it on!
advantage that my personal stereo has is that I can take it
everywhere with me. It is my constant companion: on the bus, when out
for walks or shopping, and even on the way to or from college. As
long as I have music to listen to, I never feel bored or lonely.
personal stereo is the perfect possession, it provides entertainment,
relaxation and companionship, and I would certainly feel lost without

The most treasured possession for me would be an old fashioned classy watch given by my grandmother ten years ago. My grandmother bought this watch fifty years ago for my grandfather, for his forty year old birthday. It was made by “Galaxy & Co”, rectangular shape style, has black leather straps and their names engraved at the back of the watch. The watch was very popular back into 1960’s because it was a “limited edition” watch.
However, the price of the watch is not the reason for me to treasure it so much, the story behind it is more important and valuable to me. My grandmother purchased the watch for my grandfather’s birthday, however, that was the only present my grandmother bought for my grandfather. During 1960, the economy wasn’t so good in South Africa.
A lot of people needed to find a job to support their families. My grandmother was one of the people who needed to support her family.
She found a job at a factory where she met my grandfather. He was the supervisor at the factory. When they met, it was like love at first sight. They fell in love with each other. My grandfather always gave her presents or food to bring back for her family. My grandmother felt that wasn’t too good, therefore, she used her first year salary to purchase the watch for my grandfather’s birthday. When my grandfather received the present, he was so ecstatic that he asked my grandmother if she wanted to marry him.
My grandfather passed away twenty years ago, he didn’t have a chance to tell me his love story with my grandmother, and however, h

Стремясь укрепиться на Неве, Петр 1 искал удобное место для создания крепости. Его выбор пал на Заячий остров расположенный неподалеку от разветвления Невы на два рукава. «Здесь будет город заложен»- воскликнул Петр герой поэмы Александра Сергеевича Пушкина «Медный всадник». Сооруженная на этом месте крепость назло надменному соседу могла держать под контролем все: и реку, и обширное прибрежное пространство. Широкие рукава реки защищали гарнизон от неожиданного нападения, делали крепость неуязвимой для неприятеля. Петербург- это город крепость, заложенный шестнадцатого мая тысяча семьсот третьего года. Как сообщают документы того времени, на строительство города сгоняли огромное количество рабочих со всех концов Русского государства. Строители двигались к берегам Невы пешком, зачастую закованные в цепи во избежание побега, преодолевая тысячу километров тяжелейшего пути. Работали они с крайним напряжением, и местность буквально на глазах стала преображаться. Осушение болот, вырубка леса, строительство первых зданий, все превращало некогда дикие места в хорошо укрепленный город будущую столицу могущественной Российской империи.

I haven’t got that many possessions anymore, I didn’t really get a chance to grab the things I wanted with me when the attack came. The clothes I wear are regulation, issued by the fleet to all of its soldiers. The ships I fly belong to the fleet. The office I live in isn’t my own.
I guess out of all the things I do have that I consider to be mine, my most treasured possession would have to be the photographs that I have.
Especially the ones of my mother and brother. I can look back on them and remember them for the people that they were and I can almost touch the memory of when that photograph was taken. I can almost lose myself in it. I sit for hours looking at the photographs I managed to keep with me and I almost smile, almost believe that they’re alive, that they’re somewhere out there.
But then cold, hard, reality will set in and I remind myself that they’re gone. I won’t see them again; the only things I have left are these photographs. Photographs have this amazing way of making reality fall away; they can almost make you forget that you’re just one out of a handful of people that survived the Cylon attacks.
I keep them in a small box, a box that rarely comes out if ever. I usually look at them when I’m alone, when it’s okay to be Lee Adama. When I don’t have to be anything more, I’m not the CAG when I look at those photographs. I’m just Lee. And it’s okay to lose myself in memories.
