Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

It’s about having people in your life who you love and who love you.


Playlist pieces

If living is giving, I’m ready, I’m willing.


If there’s nothing left to lose then there’s every to gain
All the paragraphs and pages you could write could not contain..
It’s all about the the chance you’re taking..
The sun is setting and it’s ending ‘cause you’re letting it go..

Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T LTE verzion..

slated in mainstream at 4:38 pm

“There is a dual-core Transformer Pad version heading to US with LTE as the quad-core processor is not yet compatible with LTE network.” —webtechpoint (July 18, 2012)

What on earth?!
What kind of ridiculous….
Unacceptable trade-off.

That’s more information I’ve heard about the expected LTE version of the Infinity than anywhere else, at least, albeit being negative info.

I met a kid (4.75 or 5.75 years old) last weekend whose favorite food is broccoli. Reallly? What is it you like about Broccoli? “EVERYTHING!” Even raw, apparently.

I think having an emphatic love for eating vegetables is an excellent early start in life. If broccoli makes him so happy, just imagine when he gets to know bacon. :)

(I have broccoli with my lunch today, which is why this came up now.)

Just Stay (Email Forward)

slated in mainstream at 12:00 am

This came through as a Forward in my email (thanks Mom). I’ve seen it before; I still don’t know its original author/source.

A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside of an old man.

?Your son is here,? she said to the old man.

She had to repeat the words several times before the patient?s eyes opened.

Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man?s limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.

Wedding Saving Passbook (Nice Story)

slated in mainstream at 2:22 pm

:Email forward. Original source unknown:

Monica married Nick this day. At the end of the wedding party, Monica’s mother gave her a newly opened bank saving passbook with Rs.1000 deposit amount.

Mother: ‘Monica, take this passbook. Keep it as a record of your marriage life. When there’s something happy and memorable happened in your new life, put some money in. Write down what it’s about next to the line. The more memorable the event is, the more money you can put in. I’ve done the first one for you today. Do the others with Nick.

When you look back after years, you can know how much happiness you’ve had.’ …

Learned something very useful yesterday about credit cards.

You can combine multiple cards/accounts (from the same provider) into one.
And you can change one type of card to another (that the provider offers)

Bing (Microsoft’s new search engine), doesn’t pass the standard “alicson” test. So comfortable with Google anyway.

"Nonstop has been a victory for humanity"

slated in mainstream at 9:08 pm

Many have contributed to Nonstop at a level of personal sacrifice I personally find inspiring — granted, not as much as we’d have liked nor sufficient to guarantee Nonstop’s future, but at least enough to incubate an experiment in higher education in which we all ought to be able to take pride. In less than a year, I would absolutely say Nonstop has been a victory for humanity.
