For those of you who prefer following my news in English feel free to visit, share or leave a comment. Thank you for your Likes.
The English/German section of my Slovak website will not be updated any more.
Sincerely yours, Jozef Banas.

Enter with good intentions

Welcome. Enter my site and share with me joys and sorrows, successes and temporary defeats. Temporary, because I know that I can fall to the ground any time, yet I know that I must stand up again as soon as possible. Each fall holds the beginning of a future rise. Are you ready to fall and rise with me? Then you are in the right place. I do not fight with others, but with myself.
I try to be better than I was yesterday. Should you support me on my way, I would be very grateful. I will try to reciprocate your visit with love, understanding and a good word. Please, feel free to enter. Welcome.   
Jozef Banáš
