Luv Maura’s idea of having speakers under bed and storage idea, how would you get to the middle one and front one, that would be a lot of picking up the mattress for one thing and doesnt the mattress loop or get ruined from pressure in btwn the shelves? 1 – you can put anything you want in the middle shelves, but there are much more cheaper durable and flexible boxes to go in expedit now than there used to be so get those if you want to use it for storage and put stuff in there you dont use a lot (linens, out of season clothes, shoes, and all that stuff you cnat bear to throw away but wont really use).

GREEK ARMENIAN JEWISH MUSLIM QUAERTERS TOUR IN ISTANBUL,Les Arts Turcs team's professional guides that speaks French, Italian, Portugues and Spanish, English makes special tours of Greek, Armenian and Jewish quarters of Istanbul. Aquaduct of Valens : The Valens Aqueduct stands in Istanbul, in the quarter of Fatih, and spans the valley between the hills which are today occupied by Istanbul University and the Fatih Mosque. The Life of Ottoman Jews For 300 years following the expulsion, the prosperity and creativity of the Ottoman Jews rivalled that of the Golden Age of Spain. Ottoman diplomacy was often carried out by Jews. Joseph Nasi, appointed the Duke of Naxos, was the former Portuguese Marrano Joao Miques. Turkish Jews are legally represented, as they have been for many centuries, by the Hahambasi, the Chief Rabbi. A Community Calendar (Halila) is published by the Chief Rabbinate every year and distributed free of charge to all those who have paid their dues (Kisba) to the welfare bodies. Social clubs containing libraries, cultural and sports facilities, discotheques give young people the chance to meet. Jewish communities in Anatolia flourished and continued to prosper through the Turkish conquest.

Aquaduct of Valens : The Valens Aqueduct stands in Istanbul, in the quarter of Fatih, and spans the valley between the hills which are today occupied by Istanbul University and the Fatih Mosque.
Balat is known as a Jewish quarter--with a small Armenian population-- dating back to the Byzantine period.
Pierre Loti Hill by cable-lift where you can catch the beautiful view of Istanbul.When you reach beautiful Pierre Loti Hill, you will have a rest time to drink with the nice view of Golden Horn. Eyup Sultan Mosque is one of the holy places in Istanbul,site of the Eyup Sultan Mosque where Ayoub al-Ansari (Eyup Sultan),the standard-bearer to the prophet Mohammed ,is buried. Idea : This tour gives the story and lifes of Turkish Greek, Jewish, Armenian and Muslim communities in today's Istanbul. They are one of the few types of plant that do not flower but make up for this with a variety of fronds from delicate feathery to prehistoric looking. Most ground ferns are various shades of green but there are a few types that produce other colours on new frond growth.
The types of condition they thrive in tend to be shade to partial shade and generally moist soil but you can find ones that will tolerate dry spots.
D.lepidopoda will remain quite a small fern keeping to under 50cm and suits a partially shady moist soil. Also known as the Autumn fern, Rosy fern and Copper shield fern are more or less evergreen in the UK. Erythrosora can grow to about a metre in height and have fronds up to about 60cm in length.
The Hart's Tongue fern is evergreen in the UK and provides year round interest and also happens to be a native. If you're looking for something a little smaller and with ruffled serrations then the variety Angustifolia is an interesting alternative.
The Oriental Chain fern is very similar to the Jewelled Chain fern but many reports say it's slightly less hardy possibly surviving down to -10°C. The Soft Shield fern Setiferum makes a great large specimen that can grow to over a metre in height. Another hardy evergreen Setiferum with a moss like appearance with it's dense layered fronds. A dwarf version of Setiferum, Congestum due to the overlapping leaflets or pinnae that give the fronds that congested look.
Great for a cool shady spot, maybe a difficult to fill area sheltered spot on a northerly aspect.
A very hardy evergreen which can be quite large growing to around 120cm is the Robust Wood fern. The Common Polypody is a native evergreen, a low growing spreading fern that will reach to a height of about 30cm but can produce fronds of up to 50cm. The Japanese Tassel fern grows to about 60cm with delicate looking leaflets and a yellow lime green appearance on the new foliage. This is one huge and much sought after Chilean Tree fern with fronds reaching 2 metres in length.
As you can see from this dryopteris wallichiana photo I took of this young plant the contrasting colouring is very distinctive and pronounced. The Wallich Wood fern has to be one of my favourites with its deep burgundy red veins and stem with green leaflets.


You are able to buy Dryopteris wallichiana as a small plant or in more mature sizes online as this fern can grow to over a metre in height with its metre long fronds.
By all means a potentially massive ground fern growing up to 2 metres in height and with a similar spread. Whilst not an exhaustive list this is probably the largest list of evergreen ferns that are available in the UK.
Garden centres tend to sell a few seasonal varieties but will unlikely have much in the way of selection.
At the head of the bed (touching the wall), I installed the cross brace on the outside so that it would not interfere with reaching the storage under the bed.
In the later Middle Ages, Ashkenazi Jews migrating to the Byzantine Empire and Ottoman Empire supplemented the original Jewish population of Asia Minor. Once a focal point of the social and cultural lives of Greeks, Armenians and Jews, the Fener and Balat districts are presently inhabited by a mostly Muslim population that immigrated from other cities and rural areas. In the 17th century, Fener became the residence of upper classes and the bourgeoisie with its hewn stone buildings and richly ornamented house facades. In fact, from the early 15th century on, the Ottomans actively encouraged Jewish immigration. Another Portuguese Marrano, Alvaro Mendes, was named Duke of Mytylene in return of his diplomatic services to the Sultan.Salamon ben Nathan Eskenazi arranged the first diplomatic ties with the British Empire.
Indeed, Turkey could serve as a model to be emulated by any nation which finds refugees from any of the four corners of the world standing at its doors.In 1992, Turkish Jewry celebrated not only the anniversary of this gracious welcome, but also the remarkable spirit of tolerance and acceptance which has characterized the whole Jewish experience in Turkey. When the Ottomans captured Bursa in 1326 and made it their capital, they found a Jewish community oppressed under Byzantine rule. In the 17th century, Fener became the residence of upper classes and the bourgeoisie with its hewn stone buildings and richly ornamented house facades. Balat's winding streets provided a meeting ground for navigators, seafarers, street vendors and porters. These evergreen ferns will provide year round greenery and are great for planting under larger plants and filling those difficult dark shady spots. You are not limited to just for using them to fill awkward gaps, many of the larger varieties can become architectural features in their own right.
The types of colour available are usually in the pinks to reds range and so can provide additional colour especially in the colder months when fewer plants are in flower.
You will find that they are not troubled much by pests or diseases so in that respect are quite low maintenance.
Ideal for for a shady spot under other larger plants as it's new growth colour will brighten up the area.
The nice thing about this little fern is that the new fronds are often a coppery pink colour as they emerge. It is an evergreen so will remain with fronds all year round, reported to manage as low as -15°C. It is evergreen and hardy although its soft lacy tufted fronds make it look delicate but it is tough. The Congested Soft Shield fern is a British native and grows to about 30cm so quite small by fern standards and requires partial or full shade.
It loves cool dark shade and prefers a sheltered spot as although it is evergreen it is not as hardy as most other Polystichums. It is actually a cross between Dryopteris Filix-mas and Dryopteris Affinis and is an excellent large specimen that likes moist cool conditions.
Once established it can handle full sun and drier locations than most ferns so is great if you want to squeeze in another fern but have run out of shady spots. In it's native Chile it will develop a trunk but in the UK will usually remain a ground fern.
It is evergreen down to about -12°C in the UK and provides attractive year round foliage although the fronds do tend to lay down in winter rather than remaining erect unless in a sheltered spot. Potentially hardy and evergreen to -10°C depending on how sheltered a position it is in.
It can take as long as 10 years to reach its full size and would look great under planted by smaller ferns. They vary in their requirements from deep shade to full sun tolerant and many can even grow in dry ground, great for those dry shady areas in your garden.
You may find a local nursery that will have more choice but the largest variety of hardy evergreen and rarer species can be found at these specialist nurseries that offer online sales. Many online nurseries often have a single postage fee or free delivery if you spend a certain amount. I want to build this in Full size for my brother-- who weighs over 360lbs and is "the breaker of box springs". So we asked This Old House contributor and furniture maker Christopher Beidel, owner of Pernt, in Brooklyn, New York, to re-create the bed from the photo using DIY-friendly construction techniques. It is uncertain as to when the aqueduct’s construction began, but it is mentioned in certain sources that it was completed eithe during the reign of Emperor Valens (364–378CE) or of Hadrianus (117–138CE) whose names it bears. During the Ottoman period, an important segment of Greeks who lived in Fener, who were well-educated and fluent in several languages, held high government positions as interpreters or diplomats. A letter sent by Rabbi Yitzhak Sarfati (from Edirne) to Jewish communities in Europe in the first part of the century"invited his co-religionists to leave the torments they were enduring in Christiandom and to seek safety and prosperity in Turkey". (3)When Mehmet II "the Conqueror" took Constantinople in 1453, he encountered an oppressed Romaniot (Byzantine) Jewish community which welcomed him with enthusiasm.
In 1493, only one year after their expulsion from Spain, David & Samuel ibn Nahmias established the first Hebrew printing press in Istanbul. Fifty Lay Counsellors look after the secular affairs of the Community and an Executive Committee of fourteen runs the daily matters. Both cities have homes for the aged (Moshav Zekinim) and several welfare associations to assist the poor, the sick, the needy children and orphans. The events being planned - symposiums, conferences, concerts, exhibitions, films and books, restoration of ancient Synagogues etc - commemorated the longevity and prosperity of the Jewish community. During the Ottoman period, an important segment of Greeks who lived in Fener, who were well-educated and fluent in several languages, held high government positions as interpreters or diplomats.
Following the earthquake of 1894 and a series of fires that affected not only the neighbourhood but whole city of Istanbul, the social structure of Balat underwent significant changes: The wealthiest section of the inhabitants left the district and moved to Galata, which is the current location of the Jewish institutions including the Chief Rabbinate and major synagogues.
This makes them suited to being grown in shady spots where most other plants will become leggy and struggle.
Polystichum in general prefer part to full shade but as far as soil conditions and exposure go they can pretty much handle anything. Its look reminds me a little of parsley but with a harder look and structure that gives it more depth to the fronds. As a woodland fern it will grow in partial or full shade and tolerate a level of dry soil once established.


Despite emigration during the 20th century, modern day Turkey continues a Jewish population.The present size of the Jewish Community is estimated at around 26,000 according to the Jewish Virtual Library. Follow along on the next pages to see how to build a bed every bit as practical as it is handsome. During the 18th century, the majority of new constructions were made of stone or wood; and aristocratic Greek families started to build villas around the Patriarchate.
In 1537 the Jews expelled from Apulia (Italy) after the city fell under Papal control, in 1542 those expelled from Bohemia by King Ferdinand found a safe haven in the Ottoman Empire. In the early 19th century, Abraham de Camondo established a modern school, "La Escola", causing a serious conflict between conservative and secular rabbis which was only settled by the intervention of Sultan Abdulaziz in 1864. Representatives of Jewish foundations and institutions meet four times a year as a so-called ??think tank?? Some of them are very old, especially Ahrida Synagogue in the Balat area, which dates from middle15th century.
As a whole, the celebration aimed to demonstrate the richness and security of life Jews have found in the Ottoman Empire and the Turkish Republic over seven centuries, and showed that indeed it is not impossible for people of different creeds to live together peacefully under one flag.,A History Predating 1492 The history of the Jews in Anatolia started many centuries before the migration of Sephardic Jews.
Sultan Orhan gave them permission to build the Etz ha-Hayyim (Tree of Life) synagogue which remained in service until nineteen forties.Early in the 14th century, when the Ottomans had established their capital at Edirne, Jews from Europe, including Karaites, migrated there. During the 18th century, the majority of new constructions were made of stone or wood; and aristocratic Greek families started to build villas around the Patriarchate.
The emigration followed and one fourth of the population of Balat left for Israel after its establishment.
Balat is known as a Jewish quarter--with a small Armenian population-- dating back to the Byzantine period. The 15th and 16th century Haskoy and Kuzguncuk cemeteries in Istanbul are still in use today.,??The Museum of Turkish Jews?? Rav Izak Haleva, is assisted by a religious Council made up of a Rosh Bet Din and three Hahamim. Balat's winding streets provided a meeting ground for navigators, seafarers, street vendors and porters. The Pope had no other alternative than to release them, the Ottoman Empire being the "Super Power" of those days. As a result, leadership of the community began to shift away from the religious figure to secular forces.,,World War I brought to an end the glory of the Ottoman Empire. Following the earthquake of 1894 and a series of fires that affected not only the neighbourhood but whole city of Istanbul, the social structure of Balat underwent significant changes: The wealthiest section of the inhabitants left the district and moved to Galata, which is the current location of the Jewish institutions including the Chief Rabbinate and major synagogues.
In 1926, on the eve of Turkey's adoption of the Swiss Civil Code, the Jewish Community renounced its minority status on personal rights.During the tragic days of World War II, Turkey managed to maintain its neutrality. Additionally, the Community maintains in Istanbul a school complex including elementary and secondary schools for around 700 students. A bronze column found in Ankara confirms the rights the Emperor Augustos accorded the Jews of Asia Minor.Ottoman Period,1299 - 1492 As the Ottoman Empire expands more and more Jewish populations , mostly Romaniot ( Greek-speaking Jews who lived in the Roman Empire ) are incorporated into Ottoman lands. As early as 1933 Ataturk invited numbers of prominent German Jewish professors to flee Nazi Germany and settle in Turkey. Turkish is the language of instruction, and Hebrew is taught 3 to 5 hours a week.,While younger Jews speak Turkish as their native language, the over-70-years-old generation is more at home speaking in French or Judeo-Spanish (Ladino).

They are officially recognised as dhimmi,a protected non-Muslim community.1326 The Ottoman capture Bursa and make in their capital. Before and during the war years, these scholars contributed a great deal to the development of the Turkish university system.
Founded by Ashkenazim of Austrian origin in 1900, it is the last remaining synagogue among a total of three built by Ashkenazim. During World War II Turkey served as a safe passage for many Jews fleeing the horrors of the Nazism. Now one newspaper survives: SALOM (Shalom), a fourteen to sixteen pages weekly in Turkish with one page in Judeo-Spanish.
Visits con be made during weekday mornings and for Shabbat services on Saturday mornings.,The Neve Shalom Synagogue ,uilt and opened in 1951 and the scene of a tragic terrorist attack in 1986, it is the largest synagogue in Istanbul where most of the religiou,s ceremonies are held.
While the Jewish communities of Greece were wiped out almost completely by Hitler, the Turkish Jews remained secure. The Neve Shalom is open to the public for morning visits during the weekdays and for Shabbat prayers every Saturday morning.,,The Ahrida Synagogue ,Located in Balat near the Golden Horn, built by Jews of Ohri (Macedonia) more than 550 years ago and recently renovated during the Quincentennial Celebrations in 1992, the Ahrida Synagogue is known foremost by its boat-shaped bimah. It can only be visited during weekday mornings.,Etz Ahayim Synagogue ,Located in Ortakoy, near the European leg of the Bosphorus Bridge. When the previous synagogue burned down in 1941 with only the marble Aron-ha-Kodesh remaining, the new synagogue was rebuilt on the location of the then midrash.
Mr. Salahattin Ulkumen, Consul General at Rhodes in 1943-1944, was recognized by the Yad Vashem as a Righteous Gentile "Hassid Umot ha'Olam" in June 1990. The vast majority live in Istanbul, with a community of about 2.500 in Izmir and other smaller groups located in Adana, Ankara, Antakya, Bursa, Canakkale, Kirklareli etc. There are about 100 Karaites, an independent group who does not accept the authority of the Chief Rabbi.
