R.I.P King of Pop.

You will be missed. Terribly.

To think you even recently planned a comeback. I guess it's a comeback to the Father you're headed to now.

I've learned... (0)

6:30 PM by , under

By Omer B. Washington

I’ve learned that you cannot make someone love you.
All you can do is be someone who can be loved.
The rest is up to them.
I’ve learned that no matter how much I care,
some people just don’t care back.
I’ve learned that it takes years to build up trust
and only seconds to destroy it.
I’ve learned that it’s not what you have in your life
but who you have in your life that counts.
I’ve learned that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes.
After that, you’d better know something.

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t compare yourself
to the best others can do,
but to the best you can do.
I’ve learned that it’s not what happens to people,
It’s what they do about it that matters.
I’ve learned that no matter how thin you slice it,
there are always two sides.
I’ve learned that you should always talk to loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you’ll see them.
I’ve learned that you can keep going
long after you think you can’t.

I’ve learned that heroes are the people who do what has to be done
When it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.
I’ve learned that there are people who love you dearly,
but just don’t know how to show it.
I’ve learned that sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry,
but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.
I’ve learned that true friendship continues to grow even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
I’ve learned that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

I’ve learned that no matter how good a friend is,
they’re going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.
I’ve learned that it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I’ve learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken,
the world doesn’t stop for your grief.
I’ve learned that our background and circumstances may influence who we are,
but we are responsible for who we become.
I’ve learned that just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other.
And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.

I’ve learned that sometimes you have to put the individual
ahead of their actions.
I’ve learned that no matter the consequences,
those who are honest with themselves go farther in life.
I’ve learned that your life can be changed in a matter of hours
by people who don’t even know you.
I’ve learned that even when you think you have no more to give,
when a friend cries out to you,
you will find the strength to help.

I’ve learned that writing,
as well as talking,
can ease emotional pains.
I’ve learned that the people you care most about in life
are taken from you too soon.
I’ve learned that it’s hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice
and not hurting people’s feelings and standing up for what you believe.
I’ve learned to love
and be loved.

A sad but true story about how people irresponsibly add to the problem of world hunger.

Who says we don't have enough? We have more than enough. We just don't know how to share. People have to really start to become more selfless and think of ways to reach out to the less fortunate.

Watching this video brought tears to my eyes. A friend shared it to me and now I hope to get the message to you too.

This short film won the Berlin Short Film Festival.

Mom Anita said :“First it was the film and now everything else seems to have slotted into place.

“Life can’t get any better for him. Freida is really beautiful and I am really happy for them. Yes, we knew he was flying to Israel to see her.”

And this also tells us that age doesn't matter in love. Dev is 18 and Freida 24.

Snakes escape on the plane (4)

9:43 PM by , under

On a flight in Australia, 4 baby Stimson pythons escaped their container box. They were to be transported from Alice Springs to Melbourne and were about 6 inches long.

When the plane landed and it was realized that the snakes had escaped, a team had to search for them in the plane causing airline to cancel 2 flights after that. The snakes were not found so the plane was fumigated so it could resume operation on Wednesday.

The snakes weren't endangered and weren't venemous. Whew.

Holy Week Reminder (0)

8:46 AM by , under ,

Since it's Holy Week, I thought I'd re-post this entry from my old blog. This is one of my favorite prayers:

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER'S HYMN OF LOVE

O GOD, I love thee, I love thee-

Not out of hope of heaven for me

Nor fearing not to love and be
In the everlasting burning.
Thou, thou, my Jesus, after me
Didst reach thine arms out dying,
For my sake sufferedst nails, and lance,
Mocked and marred countenance,

Sorrows passing number,
Sweat and care and cumber,

Yea and death, and this for me,

And thou couldst see me sinning:
Then I, why should not I love thee,
Jesu, so much in love with me?
Not for heaven's sake; not to be out of hell by loving thee;
Not for any gains I see;
But just the way that thou didst me I do love and I will love thee:
What must I love thee, Lord, for then?
For being my king and God. Amen.

This is such a beautiful prayer. What moves me is You being there on the cross.. not your promises of heaven or of escaping hell.

I love you simply because I love you.

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

HAPPY APRIL FOOL'S friends! :)

I did my share for today and it was so much fun. He said his jaw literally dropped so I guess I did pretty well with my "act".

I also wanted to share this compilation with you.

10 Very Interesting April Fool's Day Hoaxes in history:

#1: The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest
spaghetti harvest1957: The respected BBC news show Panorama announced that thanks to a very mild winter and the virtual elimination of the dreaded spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. It accompanied this announcement with footage of Swiss peasants pulling strands of spaghetti down from trees. Huge numbers of viewers were taken in. Many called the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree. To this the BBC diplomatically replied, "place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best."

#2: Sidd Finch
Sidd Finch1985: Sports Illustrated published a story about a new rookie pitcher who planned to play for the Mets. His name was Sidd Finch, and he could reportedly throw a baseball at 168 mph with pinpoint accuracy. This was 65 mph faster than the previous record. Surprisingly, Sidd Finch had never even played the game before. Instead, he had mastered the "art of the pitch" in a Tibetan monastery under the guidance of the "great poet-saint Lama Milaraspa." Mets fans celebrated their teams' amazing luck at having found such a gifted player, and Sports Illustrated was flooded with requests for more information. In reality this legendary player only existed in the imagination of the author of the article, George Plimpton.

#3: Instant Color TV
image1962: In 1962 there was only one tv channel in Sweden, and it broadcast in black and white. The station's technical expert, Kjell Stensson, appeared on the news to announce that, thanks to a new technology, viewers could convert their existing sets to display color reception. All they had to do was pull a nylon stocking over their tv screen. Stensson proceeded to demonstrate the process. Thousands of people were taken in. Regular color broadcasts only commenced in Sweden on April 1, 1970.

#4: The Taco Liberty Bell
Taco Liberty Bell1996: The Taco Bell Corporation announced it had bought the Liberty Bell and was renaming it the Taco Liberty Bell. Hundreds of outraged citizens called the National Historic Park in Philadelphia where the bell was housed to express their anger. Their nerves were only calmed when Taco Bell revealed, a few hours later, that it was all a practical joke. The best line of the day came when White House press secretary Mike McCurry was asked about the sale. Thinking on his feet, he responded that the Lincoln Memorial had also been sold. It would now be known, he said, as the Ford Lincoln Mercury Memorial.

#5: San Serriffe
image1977: The British newspaper The Guardian published a special seven-page supplement devoted to San Serriffe, a small republic said to consist of several semi-colon-shaped islands located in the Indian Ocean. A series of articles affectionately described the geography and culture of this obscure nation. Its two main islands were named Upper Caisse and Lower Caisse. Its capital was Bodoni, and its leader was General Pica. The Guardian's phones rang all day as readers sought more information about the idyllic holiday spot. Only a few noticed that everything about the island was named after printer's terminology. The success of this hoax is widely credited with launching the enthusiasm for April Foolery that gripped the British tabloids in subsequent decades.

#6: Nixon for President
1992: National Public Radio's Talk of the Nation program announced that Richard Nixon, in a surprise move, was running for President again. His new campaign slogan was, "I didn't do anything wrong, and I won't do it again." Accompanying this announcement were audio clips of Nixon delivering his candidacy speech. Listeners responded viscerally to the announcement, flooding the show with calls expressing shock and outrage. Only during the second half of the show did the host John Hockenberry reveal that the announcement was a practical joke. Nixon's voice was impersonated by comedian Rich Little.

#7: Alabama Changes the Value of Pi
1998: The April 1998 issue of the New Mexicans for Science and Reason newsletter contained an article claiming that the Alabama state legislature had voted to change the value of the mathematical constant pi from 3.14159 to the 'Biblical value' of 3.0. Soon the article made its way onto the internet, and then it rapidly spread around the world, forwarded by email. It only became apparent how far the article had spread when the Alabama legislature began receiving hundreds of calls from people protesting the legislation. The original article, which was intended as a parody of legislative attempts to circumscribe the teaching of evolution, was written by physicist Mark Boslough.

#8: The Left-Handed Whopper
1998: Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a "Left-Handed Whopper" specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.), but all the condiments were rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers. The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, "many others requested their own 'right handed' version."

#9: Hotheaded Naked Ice Borers
Hotheaded Naked Ice Borer1995: Discover Magazine reported that the highly respected wildlife biologist Dr. Aprile Pazzo had found a new species in Antarctica: the hotheaded naked ice borer. These fascinating creatures had bony plates on their heads that, fed by numerous blood vessels, could become burning hot, allowing the animals to bore through ice at high speeds. They used this ability to hunt penguins, melting the ice beneath the penguins and causing them to sink downwards into the resulting slush where the hotheads consumed them. After much research, Dr. Pazzo theorized that the hotheads might have been responsible for the mysterious disappearance of noted Antarctic explorer Philippe Poisson in 1837. "To the ice borers, he would have looked like a penguin," the article quoted her as saying. Discover received more mail in response to this article than they had received for any other article in their history.

#10: Planetary Alignment Decreases Gravity
1976: The British astronomer Patrick Moore announced on BBC Radio 2 that at 9:47 AM a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event was going to occur that listeners could experience in their very own homes. The planet Pluto would pass behind Jupiter, temporarily causing a gravitational alignment that would counteract and lessen the Earth's own gravity. Moore told his listeners that if they jumped in the air at the exact moment that this planetary alignment occurred, they would experience a strange floating sensation. When 9:47 AM arrived, BBC2 began to receive hundreds of phone calls from listeners claiming to have felt the sensation. One woman even reported that she and her eleven friends had risen from their chairs and floated around the room.

Tim Eves was playing jogging on Wii before he started keeling in front of his girlfriend and friend. He was declared dead on arrival at local hospital.

He was thought to be "fit and healthy" since he's been physically active, a scout leader, and always enjoyed cycling and fishing. They told his family his death might have been caused by something called "Sudden Adult Death Syndrome."

It definitely was sudden because his mom recalled talking to him on the phone and Tim saying he had a kebab and a glass of port just a few minutes before the collapse.

Worse, that was the same day he came home from Portugal to celebrate her mom's 50th birthday.

What a sad but real reminder for us to Carpe Diem!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE BEST MOM IN THE WORLD!!! :)

MOTHER'S ARE THE SWEETEST.

Our mother is the sweetest and
Most delicate of all.
She knows more of paradise
Than angels can recall.

She's not only beautiful
But passionately young,
Playful as a kid, yet wise
As one who has lived long.

Her love is like the rush of life,
A bubbling, laughing spring
That runs through all like liquid light
And makes the mountains sing.

And makes the meadows turn to flower
And trees to choicest fruit.
She is at once the field and bower
In which our hearts take root.

She is at once the sea and shore,
Our freedom and our past.
With her we launch our daring ships
Yet keep the things that last.

~Nick Gordon~

la la la loooove you!

Yes, you read that right.

Report says Lucy Baxter, who campaigns for equal rights for Down’s Syndrome sufferers, is so desperate for 21-year-old Otto to have his first sexual experience she is considering paying a prostitute to sleep with him. She won't mind it if he went to a brothel in Amsterdam. Lucy thinks this is a way for his son to be normal - to do what normal people would do.

She says she would be pleased if her son Otto brought a woman back to the house for sex.

I don’t have a problem with any of it. He’s going to Las Vegas for a few days to promote himself as an actor so who knows, he might get lucky over there.

“When he gets back home I’ve lined up a few dating agencies for him to join. I always encourage him to go to nightclubs and other places where people pick up women.”

“I’d also love it if Otto got a girlfriend pregnant. It’s another experience everyone goes through so why not him? The chances of him having a baby with Down’s are no more than anyone else.”
I just know not all normal people would force it upon themselves. He's only 21 and it'll come. Why the pressure? Then again, that's just my opinion.

The OAP of Basildon, Essex, added: “I’ve been accosted in town. People see a little man with grey hair and put their hands on me, but I knew what to do, enough to see them off.”
Don't you young ones just get challenged by this? I believe self defense is very important. Some unfortunate incidents happen when you're totally not expecting them. Won't hurt to think a step in advance, right? Nice one, grandpa!

15 Effects of Recession on our lives (2)

6:46 PM by , under

It's been tough for everybody since the past few months. We witnessed even the biggest companies lay off thousands of workers to keep from closing down. And unfortunately, some actually do close down. Now employment is a big issue in the current economic state of the world. How else does it affect our lives? How does it affect even merely our daily activities?

Read this compilation of the top 15 effects recession has on our lives. This report is more UK-based but the rest of the world can very much relate to it:

out: Baths
in: Showers

Long, lazy baths, which use far more hot water than showers, are becoming a thing of the past. Unilever reports that sales of bubble baths are down while demand for shower gels is up.

out: pints in pub
in: cans at home

Drinkers are calling time on pubs – and staying in with a four-pack. Pub beer sales fell 10 per cent in the last year.

out: hairdressers
in: hair dye kits

Get those plastic gloves on... An Asda survey found that hair dye sales are up 27 per cent – and four in 10 customers were cutting back on trips to the hairdressers. Stylist Andrew Barton revealed a 67 per cent surge in demand for his blonde hair products compared to last year, with women hitting the (bleach) bottle to lift the economic gloom.

out: bottled water
in: tap water

Good news for the environment – sales of still bottled water are down 15 per cent year on year, say Asda. Why pay when freebies are on tap?

out: fresh food
in: frozen food

More of us are stocking up on food that will last longer.

Demand for Sainsbury’s frozen peas has doubled year on year. Frozen prawns were up 400 per cent and frozen garlic bread rocketed by 40 per cent. Sales at Iceland are also up 12 per cent, while Hull-based chain Heron and Leeds-based Frozen Value are ahead more than 11 per cent.

Figures from saveborrowspend. co.uk show sales of tinned products rose eight per cent in a year.

out: shop sarnies
in: packed lunches

The takeaway sandwich could soon be brown bread. More than a third of us say we are buying fewer shop sarnies than a year ago, says a Sainsbury’s poll. And 15 per cent of us have stopped buying them completely. Meanwhile, sales of lunch-boxes are up 68 per cent at Robert Dyas, as we save dough by making our own.

out: branded food
in: own-labels

Shoppers are checking out more own-label value lines. Sainsbury’s Basics range is growing at 40 per cent a year and six in 10 customers buy own-brand items.

out: foreign hols
in: british breaks

Who needs the costly Costas when you’ve got the good old British seaside to explore? The weak pound and a drop in disposable income has led to a seven per cent fall in the number of Brits holidaying abroad in a year, says the Office for National Statistics figures. Meanwhile, at Pontins bookings are up 20 per cent on the year.

out: new clothes
in: mending

Fashion is falling out of fashion as we make do and mend. Retail sales of clothing and household goods are down 1.8 per cent on last year, according to the Office for National Statistics. Meanwhile, John Lewis reports sales of buttons are up 43 per cent and Argos says sales of sewing machines are 50 per cent higher.

out: special cleaners
in: Multi-purpose

The demand for niche-cleaning products has been a washout, with sales dropping six per cent since last year. Meanwhile sales of multi-purpose household products are up by two per cent.

out: new cars
in: car repairs

Sales of new cars since January have stalled (30 per cent down on last year say the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders). Drivers are repairing old motors rather than buying new models.

out: shop cakes
in: home baking

Stork margarine – a staple of wholesome home-baking – is flying off supermarket shelves, according to makers Unilever.

out: divorce
in: staying wed

Hard times can push even the strongest relationship to the limit, but couples going through a rocky patch are making more of an effort to stay together – because they can’t afford not to. Relate counsellor Denise Knowles says: “In the past couples may have split up and put their house on the market, but nothing is selling so they are stuck.”

out: Shop veg
in: grow your own

Sales of vegetable seeds from B&Q are up by 27 per cent, and an ICM poll found that 26 per cent more people are growing their own fruit and veg.

out: eating out
in: home cooking

Swanky restaurants may be off the menu when you are cutting back, but you can still enjoy posh nosh at home. At Asda sales of curry ingredients leapt by 40 per cent last year as did demand for luxury ingredients like balsamic vinegar (up 70 per cent) and olives (50 per cent). Sales of Knorr stock cubes are growing by “double-digits” as more people choose to cook from scratch, and sales of ready-meals also went down by 40 per cent.

You miss out on life and what it really means to live. People have different interests so I don't want to just talk about one thing here. I myself am interested in so many things and I get bored with just reading about one single topic over and over again.

I'm here to change that.

Browse around and save yourself from getting wrinkled foreheads from all that stress. Here will be my melting pot of my oh so many interests.

Enjoy and make sure you drop by again! Bisous!
