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.)
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.

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.

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

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.
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.

like, “what should I wear today?”, “what should I do this weekend?”
