Sveti Jurij, RogaĆĄovci

Sveti Jurij is a village in the Municipality of Rogašovci in the Prekmurje region of northeastern Slovenia. The name of the settlement was changed from Sveti Jurij to Jurij in 1955; the name was changed on the basis of the 1948 Law on Names of Settlements and Designations of Squares and Buildings as part of efforts by Slovenia's postwar communist government to remove religious elements from toponyms. The name Sveti Jurij was restored in 1990; the parish church in the village, from which the settlement gets its name, is dedicated to Saint George. It is a large three-aisle Neo-Romanesque building built in 1925. Elements of the original Gothic building from the late 14th century are preserved in the sanctuary, it belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Murska Sobota.

Yard Sale (Modern Family)

"Yard Sale" is the sixth episode of the fourth season of the American sitcom Modern Family, the series' 78th episode overall. It aired October 31, 2012; the episode was directed by Gail Mancuso. Sofía Vergara submitted this episode for consideration due to her nomination for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. Manny and Luke have a school charity fundraiser and Jay and Gloria decide to help them raise some money by holding a yard sale. In the process of it, Manny and Luke are looking for things to sell and they find an old trunk in the attic; when Gloria sees it she takes it away from them. Her behavior makes the two boys curious and they want to see what Gloria is hiding from everyone. Phil discovers his old cycle and Claire thinks he is going to sell it, but he is not. In the meantime, Jay wants to sell his motorcycle since he will not need it anymore with the baby coming. To prove that he is not afraid of riding a motorcycle, Phil goes for a test drive.

But when he fends off from the house, he falls and he gets trapped under the motorcycle. It takes him a while to get back home; when he does, he admits that he is not a motorcycle-rider and he will not be buying the bike. Cam wants to sell his "fat-pants". Mitchell though, not confident that Cam will keep his dietary practices going, struggles on how to tell him that he should not sell his pants because every time he loses weight and gains it back, he needs to buy new ones. Meanwhile, Alex's new boyfriend, comes to the yard sale. Claire believes that Michael is gay and she tries to convince Alex because she does not want her to get hurt. To be more convincing, she asks for Cam's help; when they tell Alex that Michael is gay, she decides to ask him herself. In its original American broadcast, "Yard Sale" was watched by 10.62 million. "Yard Sale" received positive reviews. Donna Bowman of The A. V. Club gave a B+ grade to the episode saying: "When a sitcom gets all its major characters together in a single, episode-long scene, you can be sure of one thing: They will form into groups, stand a few scant feet away from another character, talk about that character as if they can’t be heard.

I love this trope. Every time it happens, I’m reminded of the artificiality of the entertainment format that I’m enjoying, its conventions and shortcuts; the single-camera laugh-track-less sitcom dispenses with so many of those concessions to theatrical necessity, that I find myself appreciating them more when they appear. Those moments are a signal. Sometimes the old ways are the best. Modern Family has that venerable sitcom DNA despite its 21st century trappings, “Yard Sale” continues a concerted season four effort to stay close to those roots."Leigh Raines of TV Fanatic rated "Yard Sale" with a 4.5/5 saying that a lot of things can happen in few hours. "A lot can happen in a few hours on Modern Family. Leave it to a regular old "Yard Sale" for Phil to have a James Franco moment, Luke to manipulate people, Alex to fight and make up with her gay boyfriend and Mitchell to have seven fights and Gloria to realize she married her puppet."Victoria Leigh Miller from Yahoo! TV said. "...while the Pritchett-Dunphy-Delgado-Tucker clan fell short of selling refreshments at their sale, the hijinks on this episode were refreshing enough!

So how much money did the family's yard sale make for UNICEF? We're not sure, but this episode was priceless."Denise Chang from No White Noise rated the episode with an A- grade saying that "Yard Sale" was a wonderful and overall great episode. "Overall, this was a great episode that explored a couple of important topics and gets a 3/5 laughs from me on the funny scale. Hayley made a short appearance via video chat and I can’t wait to see more."Zach Dionne of Vulture rated the episode with 4/5. "A yard sale at the Pritchett-Delgado headquarters — what a wonderful way to get the entire dysfunctional Modern Family clan together for some lacking comedy team action."Michael Adams of 411mania rated the episode with 8/10 saying that it was not bad at all while Wyner C of Two Cents TV said that "the episode was okay but the ending rocked!!!"Also, Phil's moment as James Franco from the movie 127 Hours got positive feedback. "Is it possible Phil did James Franco better than James Franco himself? What started out as Wild Hogs turned into 127 Hours when Phil tipped Jay's Harley over and caught his pants underneath it.

If only he was wearing his shants! I'd watch a whole episode of Modern Family with Phil recording himself like he was in The Blair Witch Project, he is a one-man comedy show." "Yard Sale" on IMDb "Yard Sale" at TV.com "Yard Sale" at ABC.com
