*** “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.”

The Harp Song of the Pharaohs

It was one of the most famous songs sung with "the harp" the time of the Pharaohs , it was recorded on "Haris papyrus", probably it returns to the king "Aneotef" period, he was from the eleventh family.

"Here are the generations of humans
Generation after generation
The rule of existence since the beginning of humanity
Since there was god in life
Those lying in their pyramids
The nobles and knights
They went to the yard with others
All what they built of castles
Have gone.. as if not existing
whoever came before them, can tell us about them
So that our hearts should be knowing the truth
Till we go to where they have gone
strengthen your heart
Enjoy what you love while alive
Wearing the beast a god can wear
Take you luck from your happiness
Do not make loosing hope know your way
Take the chance from the happiness world is pushing to you
No one from those who left, came back..

The Dream Stele of Thutmose IV, or the Sphinx Stele

*** First of all, The Stele is a stone or wooden slab, erected as a monument, very often for funerary or commemorative purposes.
This ornamentation may be inscribed, carved, found in different parts of the world, notably Egypt and China.
In ancient Egypt, these vertical slabs of stone depict tombstones, religious uses, and boundaries.

The Sphinx Stele, was erected in the first year of Thutmose IV'reign, 1401 BC.. 
As was common with other New Kingdom Pharaohs, it makes claim to a divine legitimization to pharaoh-ship.

In ancient Egypt, when pharaohs wanted to record something for eternity and have it be known not only to mortals, but more importantly, to the gods, they wrote in stone. The hieroglyphs carved into the Dream Stella of Thutmosis IV, an enormous upright slab at the base of the Sphinx, tell a portentous story of a young king's bargain with the sun god.

Dream Stele, reproduction.


The dream

"Now the statue of the very great Khepri [the Great Sphinx ] rested in this place, great of fame, sacred of respect, the shade of Ra resting on him. Memphis and every city on its two sides came to him, their arms in adoration to his face, bearing great offerings for his Ka. One of these days it happened that prince Thutmose came travelling at the time of midday. He rested in the shadow of this great god. Sleep and dream took possession of him, at the moment the sun was at zenith. Then he found the majesty of this noble god speaking from his own mouth like a father speaks to his son, and saying: "Look at me, observe me, my son Thutmose. I am your father Horemakhet-Khepri-Ra-Atum. I shall give to you the kingship [upon the land before the living]....[Behold, my condition is like one in illness], all [my limbs being ruined]. The sand of the desert, upon which I used to be, (now) confronts me; and it is in order to cause that you do what is in my heart that I have waited.

Stele description
The Dream Stele is a vertical rectangular stele, 144 cm Ht, 40 cm W, 70 cm D. The upper scene lunette ( The lunette spatial region in the upper portion of stelas, became common for steles as a prelude to a stele's topic ), shows Thutmose IV on the right and left making offerings to the Great Sphinx.

Reproduction of the Dream Stele of Thutmose IV - Close-up of detail depicting pharaoh making offering to Sphinx. RC 1834 (Original 1500 - 1390 BC, made of granite, located on the Giza Plateau).

Medical Analysis of the Stele
Recently a surgeon at Imperial College London (Dr Hutan Ashrafian) has analysed the early death of Thutmose IV and the premature deaths of other Eighteenth dynasty Pharaohs (including Tutankhamun and Akhenaten). He identifies that their early deaths was likely as a result of a Familial Temporal Epilepsy. This would account for the untimely mortality in Thutmose IV and can also explain his religious vision described on his Dream Stele due to this type of epilepsy’s association with intense spiritual visions and religiosity.

*** Thutmosis IV was the eighth king of the 18th dynasty, which is during Egypt's New Kingdom, a period when Egypt was really at its height. This area, at that time, was like a recreation area for the pharaohs. They would come here to hunt, ride their chariots, do target practice.
I  had collected the information from several documents and the Wikipedia.

Friends are like balloons;

once you let them go, you might not get them back.

Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away

Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and wrong.. 

Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. 

I don't want to let that happen so I'm going to tie you to my heart so I never lose you.

Coffee and Your Health

~ Healing Benefits of Coffee ~
Did you know that coffee actually has healing properties?
Read on to find out when coffee can benefit your health.

Studies are now finding that coffee has many healing properties. Here are some of the health benefits you enjoy when you drink coffee.

      *** Coffee can make a headache go away. 
Sometimes a caffeine addiction will produce a headache from a lack of coffee, in which case the headache will go away as soon as you drink some.
But coffee can also make other headaches go away, as caffeine causes the blood vessels to constrict or shrink. While that may not sound like a good thing, in the case of headaches it will actually lessen the pain you are feeling.

       *** Coffee cures constipation. 

Feeling a little blocked up? A cup of coffee can fix that! Coffee is a natural laxative, so that morning cup of coffee can keep you regular as well as help you wake up in the morning.

      *** Coffee helps your body deal with LDL cholesterol. 

If you have high cholesterol, you are at risk for heart disease. However, caffeine can actually help to heal your body by preventing LDL cholesterol from oxidizing. The short term effect is to help minimize the negative effects of LDL cholesterol on the body, but the long term effect is to reduce the coffee drinker’s risk of heart disease.

      *** Coffee is a natural energy drink. 

The caffeine in coffee naturally energizes you. Did you get too little sleep the night before? Coffee will help you wake up and function normally until you can get to bed again. In addition to making a perfect wake up call or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, it also can help enhance your workout by helping you stay energized and burn more fat.

~ Preventative benefits to drinking coffee ~
In addition to the healing properties of coffee, there are numerous preventative benefits to drinking coffee. 
Just like taking vitamins to shore up your immune system around flu season, coffee can be used to heal the body and prevent many diseases.

       *** Coffee prevents diabetes. 

Scientists aren't sure whether it is the antioxidants or the minerals in coffee, but something about it makes developing type 2 diabetes much less likely for coffee drinkers.

      *** Coffee protects the brain. 

Diseases of the brain, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, are substantially less likely in regular coffee-drinkers. Something about coffee protects the brain from these debilitating diseases.

      ***Coffee reduces the risk of stroke. 

We’ve already talked about how coffee can heal the body and prevent heart disease. It also has a similar effect on the likelihood of having a stroke, cutting the risk by as much as 20 percent.

As you can see, coffee has many healing properties. Not only can coffee cure many conditions such as headaches, constipation, and fatigue, it also has strong preventative powers. Diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s to stroke can be preventative with a couple of cups of coffee every day.

      ***Coffee reduces the risk of cancer uterus. 

Women who drink a lot of coffee may have less risk of developing cancer of the uterus, (a Japanese study).

Researchers don’t always know what it is in coffee that produces these benefits. 

We know coffee has many antioxidants in it, and we also know that it has a lot of minerals in it. The high caffeine content also seems to be part of the equation, as the benefits are often reduced in people who drink decaffeinated coffee instead.

Whatever it is about coffee, though, there are lots of ways you can benefit from this wonderful drink. 

Shop for coffee makers so that you can drink coffee whenever you feel the urge. Also, getting several coffee machines to keep at the office could reduce long-term health care expenses at the same time as it keeps your employees more alert and productive throughout the day!

Athribis The Ancient Egyptian Cities

Names: Athribis or Athlibis 

Athribis or Athlibis was the Greek name for two cities of ancient Egypt.
  • In Lower Egypt
The chief town of the Athribite, the Tenth nome. 
  • Athribis (Upper Egypt)
The ancient city of Hut-Repyt in Upper Egypt, also 

Athribis (Lower Egypt)


A small hill, Tell Atrib, northeast of the modern town of Banha, north of Cairo, now marks its former site. Athribis stood upon the eastern bank of the Tanitic branch of the Nile, now silted up, near the angle where that branch diverges from the main stream. 

Athribis (Upper Egypt) is located in Egypt

Athribis (Upper Egypt)

also known to the ancient Greeks as Triphieion or Tripheion, and to the ancient Egyptians as Hut-Repyt, was an ancient city of Egypt, in the Panopolite nome. The modern village of Wannina in the Sohag Governorate is situated here. It is located some 10 km southwest of the city of Akhmim, on the west bank of the Nile.

Overview The city is the site of a temple built for the goddess Repyt (Triphis) by Ptolemy XV Caesarion and subsequent Roman Emperors. South of this temple was an earlier temple of Ptolemy IX Soter II. One of the tombs nearby, belonging to the brothers Ibpemeny "the younger" and Pemehyt of the late 2nd century BC, has two zodiacs on its ceiling.

The Athribite name:
The Athribite name and its capital derived their name from the goddess Thriphis, whom inscriptions both at Athribis and Panopolis denominate the most great goddess. 
Thriphis is associated in worship with Amun Khem, one of the first quaternion of deities in Egyptian mythology, but no representation of her has been at present identified. John Gardner Wilkinson supposes Athribis to have been one of the lion-headed goddesses, whose special names have not been ascertained.

About half a mile from Athribis are the quarries from which the stone used in building the temple was brought; and below the quarries are some small grotto tombs, the lintels of whose doors are partially preserved. 
Upon one of these lintels is a Greek inscription, ideentifying it as the sepulchre of Hermeius, son of Archibius. He had not, however, been interred after the Egyptian fashion, since his tomb contained the deposit of calcined bones. 
Vestiges also are found in two broad paved causeways of the two main streets of Athribis, which crossed each other at right angles, and probably divided the town into four main quarters. The causeways and the ruins generally indicate that the town was greatly enlarged and beautified under the Ptolemies.

What is the Sand Sea?... Egyptian Sand Sea

The sand see is a continuous sand covered area on earth.
It is a huge mass of sand that originated in the wind excavated depressions.

The Great Sand Sea

The Great Sand Sea is the second largest continuous sand covered area on earth (after the Grand Erg Oriental, in Algeria). It is a huge mass of sand that originated in the chain of wind excavated depressions paralleling the Mediterranean coast from Jalo (Libya) to the Qattara depression (Egypt). It is called the Great Sand Sea in Egypt, but the Calanascio Sand Sea to the west in Libya is a continuous part of it, as is the Rebiana Sand Sea, which is the southern extension of the Calanascio Sand Sea lying to the West of Kufra. The western edge of the Rebiana Sand Sea may be considered the edge of the Lybyan Desert.

The Great Sand Sea
It covers 72,000 square kilometers and forming the northern edge of the Sahara, the Great Sand Sea is the world’s third largest dune field. Siwa( Egypt ) is the northern gateway and the perfect starting point for a safari expedition into a truly magical landmark. 

The Great Sand Sea is one of the largest dune fields in the whole world and contains some of the largest recorded sand dunes, one of which is 140 km long!

Egyptian Sand Sea
It is the widest part of The Great Sand Sea.

 The Egyptian Sand Sea is located in Africa's Libyan Desert. The three sand seas contain dunes up to 110m in height and cover ~25% of the Libyan Desert. The dunes were created by the wind.

The Great Sand Sea is one of the largest dune fields in the whole world and contains some of the largest recorded sand dunes, one of which is 140 km long!

Calanshio Sand Sea
The Calanshio Sand Sea is located in the Saharan Libyan Desert, of the Kufra District in Cyrenaica, eastern Libya.

Rebiana Sand Sea
The Rebiana Sand Sea is located in the western part of the Saharan Libyan Desert in the Kufra District of the Cyrenaica region in eastern Libya.
Some related topics, The Sahara

The Sahara is the world's second largest desert, after Antarctica. At over 9,400,000 square kilometres (3,600,000 sq mi), it covers most of Northern Africa, making it almost as large as Europe or the United States. The Sahara stretches from the Red Sea, including parts of the Mediterranean coasts, to the outskirts of the Atlantic Ocean. To the south, it is delimited by the Sahel, a belt of semi-arid tropical savanna that composes the northern region of central and western Sub-Saharan Africa.

Some of the sand dunes can reach 180 metres (590 ft) in height. The name comes from the Arabic word for desert.
