then why cover the mouth.

There is the need for secrecy coz the danger is of another kind. What exactly???
Skip traditional thinking and apply modern approach. More innovative one. :):):)

That's the one I meant. In post #67.

Yes, I know. Iron didn`t. :):):)

I'm probably wrong but Is this anything to do with Pegasus spyware?

Someone reading from lips?

Yes, exactly!!! It has been proven a few times here that inquisitive reporters hire lip reading specialists to find out what some politicians said in semi private situations. I suppose those specialists can also be hired by various agents. Hence, the need for secrecy. However, I only saw photos of rightist politicians doing it. Nobody else does. It suggests they really don`t want their dirty deeds surface.

to do with Pegasus spyware?

When I said innovative, I meant the new efficient lip reading techniques which have been developed recently. Sorry if I misled you. :):):)

Another riddle: what is the case???

Yes, exactly!!!

I wouldn't have thought of that.

They really must be desperate to dish the dirt!

When I said innovative

Yeah, I took you at your word! Nice to have others contributing to this thread !

Is that an eagle?

Sparrow? Eagle? Sorry, no. Another species. Looks fatigued, indeed coz travelled a long distance.

desperate to dish the dirt!

Why dirt? It is fun to learn what stupidities Pres Duda said to his assistants during his visit to the Parliament. hahahaha

I searched in Polish. It flew across from France and landed on a windowsill in Poznań.
It's a bearded vulture. There aren't that many of them and it was released in France as part of a reintroduction of the species program.

It isn`t forbidden. Catch as catch can. :):):):)

It's a bearded vulture.

Yes! Normally, it is almost orange on the body and legs but the one above probably flew over a very polluted area.

What is happening and why?

This happens a lot and as far as I know has been going on round the world for at least a couple of centuries if not far longer. They do it to celebrities too and also to royalty.

Spies also do it.

What is happening and why?

It's the merry month of May. People, usually women, decorating roadside shrines, sometimes shrines to St Mary the Virgin sometimes not, an old tradition during May.

Always nice to see, and some of the more elaborate ones are a bit like Derbyshire well dressings; the tradition of both probably pre-dates Christianity.

Yes, majówka in Polish. But not only decorating - they come and say prayers and it lasts an hour or more. Most believers stand but a few days ago at a certain location I saw them sitting on specially installed wooden seats.

It's always nice to watch them doing it.
OP pawian 223 | 24,572

prayers It's always nice

yes.
The next riddle is connected somehow.
The speed limit road sign with information that it applies only to the local parish priest. What`s the matter???

I remember the thing about that sign but will let others answer.

A clue is that it's not what people might think ;-)

It's a humorous sign commemorating the parish priest's 40th birthday. It's on a private road leading to the parish building. It was a gift from the parishioners. Nice idea!

Exactly!!! Because it is private, you can put any sign you wish (within decent limits, of course).

In another thread I showed pics of the graves of Polish heroes from WW2 times. Some crosses are decorated with colour fabrics. Why???

Some crosses are decorated with colour fabrics.

This is only for Polish war heroes?
Paulina 17 | 4,489

@Feniks, no, those birch crosses are characteristic for a certain group among Polish war heroes though...

As for the fabrics - look at their shape and that hat at the top of the cross.

I know the grave is that of Jan Bytnar of the scout "Zośka" Battalion at the Powązki Military Cemetery in Warsaw. The graves of those members of that battalion of the Polish Home Army had the birch crosses.

As for the fabrics - look at their shape and that hat on the top of the cross.

They look like the sort of articles that scouts would wear. Berets or caps and some type of neck tie or scarf.
