Sad. It survived 700 years but some kids being careless with smoking destroys it?


BRATISLAVA (Reuters) - Two Slovak children were suspected of burning down a large gothic castle in eastern Slovakia when their experimentation with smoking went wrong, police said on Sunday.

Police were investigating two boys on suspicion that they set grass at the foot of the Krasna Horka castle on fire on Saturday when they tried to light up cigarettes, said Jana Mesarova, police spokeswoman for the eastern Slovak region of Kosice. Children under the age of 15 cannot be prosecuted in Slovakia.

"A unit sent to the site found that two local boys aged 11 and 12 were trying to light up a cigarette and because of careless use of safety matches, they set grass at the castle hill on fire," Mesarova said.

The castle subsequently caught fire and emergency services deployed 84 firefighters to the scene.

The Slovak National Museum wrote on its Facebook page that damage to the castle was extensive but about 90 percent of historical collections were saved, including contemporary photographs of furnished castle premises from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, oil paintings and various ornaments.

"The castle's roof burned down completely, as well as the new exhibition in the gothic palace and the bell tower. Three bells melted," the museum said.

The castle, near the UNESCO-protected Domica Cave, dates back to the early 14th century.

Also, all is well here. My Dad had surgery and I'm spending more time focusing on doing odd jobs here and there, and have had less time between that, friends weddings, and planning my own, and being a Mama and doing a show. I'm sorry I keep abandoning ya'll. I think it'll be easier if I stick with caption contests for the time being. I'll try and update more often, and if I don't promise anything more then pictures I think I'm good for the time being.

Hope you're all doing well! :)

And caption contest! ;)

We're all doing well! Life's good, just crazy busy. I got a pretty big role in a show and have been rehearsing my tush off, and between that and wedding planning, and discovering pinterest and being out of the country for a wedding... things have just been crazy! Great, but crazy! :) How are you and your lovely crew? :) What's new? *hugs*

Recently a woman doing drugs burned down the worlds oldest cypress tree. I believe it was 35,000 years old. She was sitting inside a hollowed out section and lit a match to see what she was doing. Its a shame to see all that history destroyed out of carelessness.
