Some of my texts, more or less interesting, presented in a bit(?) rusty english/polish*


Two of my younger colleagues, dr inż. Marcin Mroczkowski and dr inż. Krzysztof Pacławski, have persuaded me to present here some of my texts.
I wonder who has been more reckless - they or I, yielding their suggestion.


Years ago in numerous polish manors some kind of chronicles called “Silva rerum” were continuously drawn up. They presented, commented and discussed some events and problems interesting from the point of view of the living there people (births, weddings, funerals, voyages, military campaigns, elections, some visits, fires, floods etc.etc.). Following that tradition I have “planted” my own “Silva”. To stress that the presented here problems are mixed up, I have widened the heading on “cicer cum caule” (synonym of that total mix up).
