Night Courses

During work, John and William were chatting:
John: William, I've been taking night courses for 5 months now and I have an exam next week.
William: Oh!
John: For example, do you know who is Graham Bell?
William: No
John: He's the inventor of the phone in 1876; if you take night courses you would know this.

The next day, the same discussion took place:
John: Do you know who is Alexander Dumas?
William: No
John: He's the author of "The 3 Musketeers", if you take night courses, you would know this.

The next day, once again:
John: And do you know who is Jean Jacques Rousseau?
William: No
John: He's the author of "Confessions", if you take night courses, you would know this.

This time, William got irritated.
William: And you, do you know who is George Hunt?"
John: No
William: He's the guy enjoying with your wife! If you stop night courses, you would know this!

The Meaning of "Family"

I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
"Oh excuse me please" was my reply.
He said, "Please excuse me too;
I wasn't watching for you."
We were very polite, this stranger and I.
We went on our way and we said goodbye.
But at home a different story is told,
How we treat our loved ones, young and old.
Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me very still.
When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
"Move out of the way," I said with a frown.
He walked away, his little heart broken.
I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.
While I lay awake in bed,
God's still small voice came to me and said,
"While dealing with a stranger,
common courtesy you use,
but the family you love, you seem to abuse.
Go and look on the kitchen floor,
You'll find some flowers there by the door.
Those are the flowers he brought for you.
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.
He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,
you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes."
By this time, I felt very small,
And now my tears began to fall.
I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
"Wake up, little one, wake up," I said.
"Are these the flowers you picked for me?"
He smiled, "I found 'em, out by the tree.
I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue."
I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;
I shouldn't have yelled at you that way."
He said, "Oh, Mom, that's okay.
I love you anyway."
I said, "Son, I love you too,
and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.

Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days? But the family we left behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives?
And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than into our own family, an unwise investment indeed, don't you think?

So what is behind the story?
Do you know what the word FAMILY means?

Two Big Men

Angels have walked beside me all my life--and they still do.

A young university student was home for the summer. She had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.

As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked "God" to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a shortcut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her.

She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for "God's" protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped around her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep.

Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before.

When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered,
“Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her."

Moral of the story:
Don't underestimate the power of Prayer!
Gives ya goose bumps, doesn't it!
This is to all of you who mean something to me, I pray for your happiness.

Quit Complaining

Today before you think of saying an unkind word
Think of someone who can't speak

Before you complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat

Before you complain about your husband or wife
Think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion

Today before you complain about life
Think of someone who went too early to heaven

Before you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires children but they're barren

Before you argue about your dirty house; someone didn't clean or sweep
Think of the people who are living in the streets

Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet

And when you are tired and complain about your job
Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
Remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive and still around

Life is a gift
Live it...
Enjoy it...
Celebrate it...
And fulfill it.

Diaries: Hers and His


Day night, I thought he was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a cafe to have some coffee. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment. Conversation wasn't flowing so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk, he agreed but he kept quiet and absent. I asked him what was wrong - he said, "Nothing." I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said it had nothing to do with me and not to worry. On the way home I told him that I loved him, he simply smiled and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior; I don't know why he didn't say, "I love you, too." When we got home I felt as if I had lost him, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there and watched TV. He seemed distant and absent. Finally I decided to go to bed. About 10 minutes later he came to bed. I decided that I could not take it anymore, so I decided to confront him with the situation but he had fallen asleep. I started crying and cried until I too fell asleep. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.

Today Knicks lost the game against Detroit. DAMN IT.

Keep A Relationship Smooth Sailing

Vain About Your Skin

1. A tub of bath salts also assist in drawing out any impurities in your body and on your skin.

5. Moisturizers that are made from vegetable oils work well on the skin. Try using those that are made from these type not those that are made from mineral oil. These contain fatty acids that actually assist in moisturizing and softening the skin. On the other hand, those made from mineral oil could damage the skin for mineral oil is taken from petroleum.

6. Treat your feet to a nice and relaxing soak in warm water at least once a week. Then, gently remove dead skin using a pumice stone. After that, moisturize your weary feet with a natural foot oil or foot lotion.

Love. Love. Love.

Here are a couple of quotes for those who think they are in love, who are falling in love, who are already in love, or for those who simply believe in love.

Love is like playing the piano. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and lay from your heart.-Unknown

Within you I lose myself
Without you I find myself
Wanting to be lost again. -Unknown

Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds. -Shakespeare

If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand. -Unknown

We all want to fall in love. Why? Because that experience makes us feel completely alive. Where every sense is heightened, every emotion is magnified, our everyday reality is shattered and we are flying into the heavens. It may only last a moment, an hour, an afternoon. But that doesn't diminish its value. Because we are left with memories that we treasure for the rest of our lives. -Unknown

Relationships--of all kinds--are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost. -Kaleel Jamison

Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another's personhood. -Karen Casey

If you judge people, you have no time to love them. -Mother Theresa

If you would be loved, love and be lovable. -Benjamin Franklin

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop. -- Anonymous

True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen. -La Rochefoucauld

Who ever loved that loved not at first sight? -Christopher Marlowe

Tell me whom you love and I will tell you who you are. -Houssaye

We perceive when love begins and when it declines by our embarrassment when alone together. -La Bruyere

Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all. -St. Augustine

To love another person is to see the face of God. -Les Miserables

Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition. -Alexander Smith

When we are in love we often doubt that which we most believe. -La Rochefoucauld

Sympathy constitutes friendship; but in love there is a sort of antipathy, or opposing passion. Each strives to be the other, and both together make up one whole. -Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Friendship often ends in love; but love in friendship - never. -Charles Caleb Colton

A man reserves his true and deepest love not for the species of woman in whose company he finds himself electrified and enkindled, but for that one in whose company he may feel tenderly drowsy. --George Jean Nathan

There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness. --Friedrich Nietzsche

Family love is messy, clinging, and of an annoying and repetitive pattern, like bad wallpaper. -- P. J. O'Rourke

Love is a driver, bitter and fierce if you fight and resist him,
Easy-going enough once you acknowledge his power. --Ovid

We conceal it from ourselves in vain--we must always love something. In those matters seemingly removed from love, the feeling is secretly to be found, and man cannot possibly live for a moment without it. --Blaise Pascal

Love, free as air at sight of human ties,
Spreads his light wings, and in a moment flies. --Alexander Pope

Love makes the time pass. Time makes love pass. --French Proverb

Funny Solutions

I received an email from one of my groups in Yahoo!. And it seemed so funny that I would like to share this with you. Hope you have fun reading through this.

Difference between Focusing on Problems and Focusing on Solutions
Case 1
When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that the pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (ink won't flow down to the writing surface). To solve this problem, it took them one decade and $12 million. They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, underwater, in practically any surface including crystal and in a temperature range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.

And what did the Russians do? They used a pencil.

Case 2
One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the case of the empty soapbox, which happened in one of Japan's biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soapbox that was empty. Immediately the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some reason, one soapbox went through the assembly line empty. Management asked its engineers to solve the problem. Post-haste, the engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soapboxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they spent a whoopee amount to do so.

But when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the same problem, he did not get into complications of X-rays, etc., but instead came out with another solution. He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soapbox passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.

The Lord of the Rings, Now A Play!

If you loved “The Lord of the Rings”, then you may want to view this play. You see, “The Lord of the Rings” has already been produced as a play. I have come across this info from this

It says here that Peter Howe plays Sam Gamgee, James Loye stars as Frodo Baggins, and Michael Therriault is Gollum. It is currently running at the Princess of Wales Theater in Toronto, Canada.

Now I’m wondering. How could some movie like “The Lord of the Rings” be a play? I can just imagine. The audience watching through what…? 9 hours of a play. And most of them just battling orcs and fighting Saruman or Sauron. Or maybe looking at Sam and Frodo walk through miles and miles in dark and stony places. I wonder. Or maybe I’m just being too pessimistic.

Afghan Hound, Coming Up!

What is the Afghan Hound? Well, it has an aristocratic aura, mind you. You know why? Because it looks regal with its tall and slender frame. And it also has a long and narrow head. Although it is such, it is refined, and yes, it has powerful jaws. So beware.

It is a sweet and loyal friend. And very affectionate as well. They can be trained as long as you know how to do it. Kindly that is. Even with strangers, it can get cozy and friendly.

It can weigh an average of 58 to 64 pounds. And it can also stand an average of 27 inches to 29 inches at that.

Just like any other dog, the Afghan Hound loves frolicking in open spaces. They also do love being taken on walks. And if you do love your Afghan Hound so much that you don’t want it to leave you, don’t worry for it can live for around 14 to 15 years.

If you are not the type of person who loves hairy dogs, then you may not want to love the Afghan Hound. This dog has a long and thick mane of hair. That I promise you. You must be able to groom it and that you must know the right things to do when giving it a grooming session.

You know what this dog is capable of doing still? It can hunt. It can do sights. It can track. It can do herds. It can serve as a watchdog. It can even race. Nice doggie, huh?

Well, I actually found this information interesting. It was just sent to me by a friend. Of course, I do not want to keep all the laughter to myself that's why I'm posting it here. So that you could have fun learning what your name means. Or if this whole thing is just a joke. Who knows?

CSI and Forensic Science

I just love watching CSI. For those who are not familiar with CSI (although I doubt that there is a great number of viewers who have no idea as to what CSI is), it is the short term for Crime Scene Investigation.

CSI is a television show that really does bring great happiness for me. No, I'm not happy that people are getting murdered, hurt, or what-have-you. I am happy because CSI shows that there is of course a way for the bad guys to finish in jail. You know. After all, not everybody believes in the justice system anymore. And yes, some people also believe that they can get away with murder, or crime, if you want to widen things a bit.

It has been my lifelong dream to be a forensic scientist. Of course, I only presume that this is official jobs of those who do CSI. Yes, there are people who do forensic work at present, but of course the show does show that everything could be done in just a couple of days. Some even do not last for five days! In just a couple of days, everything is sorted out and the bad guy is sent behind bars.

Yes, but then I could not be a CSI or a forensic scientist for that matter. You know why? I got a secret. I hate blood. As a kid, I watched my mother's cousin clean his wound. (His accidentally hammered his toe and his toenail went with the hammer, so his wound was bleeding profusely.) Then, the next thing that my parents notice was that I was already lying down and I was unconcious. That is why I do not like blood. But still, I dream that maybe I would be a forensic scientist. I like the way that they are able to solve all those crimes!

And yes, I also like the way that the show, CSI, gives me the feeling that I can still trust in the police. That's kudos to the CSI team!

The Most Expensive Burgers! ($4,300!!!)

That is actually true. I got the story from this site. It is about a man who bought two Rodeo cheeseburgers and two Whoopers Jr.s at Burger King and was charged this amount -- $4,300! Whoa! Makes you want to think about buying burgers again.

Here's the rest of the story.

PALMDALE, Calif. - Four burgers at his neighborhood Burger King cost George Beane a whopping $4,334.33.

Beane ordered two Whopper Jr.s and two Rodeo cheeseburgers when he pulled up to the drive-through window last Tuesday. The cashier, however, forgot that she'd entered the $4.33 charge on his debit card and punched in the numbers again without erasing the original ones — thus creating a four-figure bill.

The electronic charge went through to George and Pat Beane's Bank of America checking account and left the couple penniless. Their mortgage payment was due and they worried checks they had written would bounce, Pat Beane said.

"We were thinking, 'No, not now!'" she said of the overcharge.

Terri Woody, the restaurant manager, said Burger King officials tried to get the charge refunded. But the bank said the funds were on a three-day hold and could not be released, Pat Beane said.

The hold is designed to prevent customers from spending money that no longer is available in their accounts and to let the bank confirm a transaction is legitimate before transferring funds, said Bank of America supervisor Joel Solorio.

Burger King did not charge the Beanes for their meal, and the couple got their $4,334.33 back on Friday.

"For those three days, those were the most expensive value burgers in history," Pat Beane said.
