    At 2:30 I was half listening to my class mate….eager to see what’s on Bernos Press….erre lihidbet…ok, i’ll get you the book…I don’t even know if I have the book she’s talking about…just let me go! Bernos Press is on!

    So, what does FARA really mean? Is there an English term for it?

    Nolawi, picture a new T-Shirt that reads… “Are you FARA?” better yet, “Are you a recovering FARA?”

    If you don’t know what FARA is, look no further. You are FARA. So, in short FARA is someone like you.

    Fara…hmm I think it means dufus, clueless, 50 degrees below zero. I don’t know the literal translation but I know it to mean someone who is very, very challenged from trying new things.

    All I have to say to you sista is you better go to the press and get back your man DawitK cause they’re eating him alive. I’m not saying who but they’re all working together. The damn thing is more addictive then the blog.

  6. 6 Shanti

    Dinich… lol, thanks for the info! Now, I know for sure I’m FARA… and others like me will know ;)

    KeFafe… yemeneuw – I was joking eko…

  7. 7 Shanti

    Celebratiye… your timing is good! I was reading all the chatting in there and boy was I surprised to see our “humble” DawitK flirting with all the ladies… all that talk about getting a hotel room??? huh, I think Wudisha and all the ladies bribed Nolawi to get that early invite from him to the press room… cause, I got no invite.

    Nolawi, I thought there was love between us… what is up with that???

  8. 8 celebratelife

    Shanti, I wish you were in there fighting and getting him back. You know I’ve been cheering for the two of you to hook up. Actually I miss that you’re not on the blog that often. Love your humor! Ok time for another Java break.

  9. 9 wudnesh

  10. 10 Shanti

    Wudisha, how do you do me like that, right under my nose? Just because I’m having difficulties logging into Bernos press; you, the one who I considered to be my girl has gone and stolen MY man… gen min’taderge… he just lovessss the attention, eko.
    Celebratiye, good looking out… you are #1 on my friends list, I know you have my back… Wudisha… anchi, I have to watch you :P learning a few words in Svedish and all (“MY första kärlek” – first love????? -WHAT?)

    First timer, I welcome you with open arms. I’m not the owner of this blog but a member by choice. I’m sure Nolawi will welcome you as he did me; he is very accommodating that way.
    Just a warning… you have just signed up to be part of the most addictive blog ever ;)
    So, once again, welcome to our dysfunctional family…

  19. 19 Lambadina

    Thank you Shanti…unfortunatley I was declined by Nolawi with a valid point….but that user name was just for trying.

  20. 20 Temelkach

    Shantiye…Fara actually is a term used to refer to all that are not “getting with the program” and obviously referred to by those who believe are more clever….Noliye this was no name-calling…just pure explanation and translation…;)

  21. 21 Nolawi

    yap I suppose I need an explanation of what the word fara is… i got up this week and started using it for no apparent reason…

    I suppose i could have used any word to make my point…

  22. 22 sose

    let me put it what is Fara means:

    Fara is Romanian word.In Romanian FARA means ‘without’
    Fara means danger. for sweden
    Fara means like stone age.
    Fara means for abesha Balager, like from Gonder or Welkeyett people
    1. betlew betlew yemaygebew Gegemma
    2. tebba Bekka you know.if you don’t know u are Fara

    Fara= some one talk like yayayayay that Gojam accent

    don’t be a fara even Gegemma

    Tena yestelegn Bernosanoch …

    One week since I have found Bernos. I am already extermely addicted.This is one of the most addictive habesha webites since Seleda(RIP).

  24. 24 Nolawi

    Thanks Mestwate, that is an honor!

  25. 25 ad

    I came across this interesting letter addressed to Teddy Afro and thought you would like to share it with your viewers. Here is the link:

  26. 26 Mest'wat


    Honour is for those who lead by serving their people. And sure enough, Bernos is such a tool.

    What I like about Bernos is, it is a Web2.0 social collaboration website. Unlike Seleda (Web1.0) Bernos has the ability to create social collaboration within the habesha community.

    Keep it up…

  27. 27 Mest'wat

    I am having a problem accessing the Press.
    Can anyone help?

  28. 28 MIchael

    As far as I know, the word fara is a street born vocabulary, which has deep meaning of the lower abitlity of a mind to challenge the random and zigzag life around city corners. Its opposite word, as we all know, is ARADA……who is ME


  29. 29 Nolawi

    but arada is not a street word at all..

  30. 30 Lilye

    TenaYisTilign Bernosoch,

    First time but have been with the program for some time, wich has now become a full blown addiction! I feel already part of the family. Thanx all of you.

    Question: how do I access the press?

  31. 31 bgFelasfit

    just go to the press tab on the top – it’s the 4th one from shop etc.. and then you can apply for membership – if u apply now, u’ll get access right away…

  32. 32 sam

  33. 33 zenchalaw

  34. 34 Kidus
