´I am looking for a basement for a night club,´ claimed man with sleeping baby in his hands

We were sitting around the table to learning English - as usually in our English Classes. It was evening around 8 pm and I could feel myself a little bit tired.
There were not very much people cos lot of them left London and went to their original countries for a Christmas.
Our classes are running in a place of previously shop so you can come in to the class room strike from a street. I like this ´open concept´ despite of being sometimes quite annoying - it does usually happen the people walking through the street are curious and just come into to disturbing our classes and asking what is i there actually... - what we are doing here.... And I can see in their faces they are thinking about joining to us - maybe just for the feeling be in an extraordinary space with overseas people (for some of them does ´overseas´ mean La Manche as well) and feeling themselves very special - be in one shop placed in another normal shops but in this is ´selling a language for free´ actually... :-)
I doubt it was the case of yesterday night - but it was interesting as well.
Cos suddenly the door was opened and into the room came in smaller man with sleeping very young baby (my estimate is just a few weeks - max three months old) in his hand and asked us: ´Is the basement for a rent here in this house?´ We all looked at him surprised as a calf at a new painted door.

I survived the Black Friday but it was just a commence of the small hell for me

Fancy Christmas´ windows at Selfridges´.

Having no idea about Christmas tradition in United Kingdom and United States I hardly survived big shock when I could read e-mails coming to my mailbox from Amazon or E-bay and then I founded almost the same message in headlines of newspaper. ´The black Friday is coming!´ 

“Oh my Gosh! What happened the next one, bloody hell,” I wanted cry out in shock immediately when I read this news. My first thinking was linked to the famous ´Black Friday of September 24th in 1869 when became big stock market catastrophe (One of first of them). The stock market was sparked by gold speculators who attempted to corner the gold market. The attempt failed and the gold market collapsed and causing the stock market to plummet. But I have had no idea why already is remembering this case. So maybe the history has been repeated?!!! Oh no! What an absurd mistake in considering…

What does speak out last train from Paris? The ´ISIS boys´ are for me bloody cowards and we need a better weapons

The night. Friday, November 13th, a few minutes before 22:39. London.
I was impatiently waiting at the St. Pancras International for the last train of the day from Paris which had arrive at 22:39. I was looking around myself and was surprised about non expected amount of members of police and security staff. ...and some of them was armed... This is indeed not common to see armed police in the Great Britain. Sometimes I could see armed security or police staff at the airport but not at the train station. But it was international train – Eurostar. So maybe it was this reason. Or another else..?
I could see a light tense in faces of some waiting people. But I did not notice anything special. I had any idea that something wrong should happen. I hadn´t been watching or reading news that evening. I was in a little rush for preparing weekend´s programs for my friends from France. I have had no idea that whole world wide broadcasting was interrupted by breaking news and internet was flooded by actual information telling about several terrorist attacks in Paris ca. three hours ago.

Why is the ´red´ button the most important thing in the studio BBC

Not important where you already are, each space and each situation have something special. For Radio (broadcasting or studio) is important one thing – and that is ´the red button´. 
Thanks my nice colleague – journalist – I reached great opportunity to spend some time in BBC. It was amazing be again in the newsroom and in the studio. Of course I spent lots of time in Radio studio before. But it was not in BBC and it took a place in my country – in Prague. So I was looking for what is the same and what is different. And I discovered that some things are the same in every places in every times. And that´s it for example the ´red button´!!! What is it? The most important thing for Radio Broadcasting! You cannot belive?! Just follow me…

Yes, it is – The ´Red Button´! :-)

It is not important if you are not a millionaire to help to someone. Are you a celebrity or no name person? Does not matter. There is just a place only for your good heart.
Broadcasting has already finished and almost everybody left the studio. I was little bit delayed cos I picked up my sheet with the topics of today´s show from a floor. We get the sheet every day from nice and cheerful member of crew who takes a care about the audience of this show.
