For my Baby on her birthday

Another year older
And what can I say
Other than I love you
On your special day

Months have passed
From when we first met
These have been times
I will never forget

Always remember
That I think of you
Not just on your birthday
But everyday too.

So I wrote you this poem
And give you my heart.
Together with a promise
That we'll never part.

Happy birthday Baby!!!

FROM MY MAILBOX: Love Means...

(a girl and guy were speeding over 100 mph on a motorcycle)

Girl: Slow down. Im scared.

Guy: No this is fun.

Girl: No its not. Please, its too scary!

Guy: Then tell me you love me.

Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down!

Guy: Now give me a BIG hug. (Girl hugs him)

Guy: Can you take my helmet off and put it on? Its bugging me.

In the paper the next day: A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of brake failure. Two people were on the motorcycle, but only one survived.

The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his brakes broke, but he didn't want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him, felt her hug one last time, then had her wear his helmet so she would live even though it meant he would die.

Not a thing

There is not a thing
I would not do,
if that thing pleases you.

It's not because I'm desperate,
it's not because I'm weak,
repaying all your kindness
is the only thing I seek.

You've given me so much
without a moment's hesitation
bewildering me with all your
selfless consideration.

So, if why I do what I do
ever comes to mind
it's because you're always there
when I am in a bind.

In your absence

dreams and desires are all I have.
I hold your hands, I kiss your lips,
I hug you so close to me.
Could I ask for more?
I see us tripping on a rainbow
while birds sing and fly
in the brilliance of the day.
I see us dancing in the sky
while the moon and the stars watch us
perform our way.
Could I dream for more?
I could hold you endlessly,
or we could dance forever.
Still, my heart will keep on longing,
because my dreams and desires
are beautiful paintings
drawn by my lonely shadow.

Wish Upon a Falling Star

(for my Baby)

When I wish upon a falling star

I wish to be where you are,

lying there next to you,
praying that your love is true.

For so long I've waited for the night
where you'd hold me close and hold me tight.

I close my eyes and I can see
you're my real, true destiny.

FUNNY: JOINT TRIP OF SHERLOCK HOLMES AND DR. WATSON

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go on a camping trip, set up their tent, and fall asleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes his faithful friend.

"Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson replies, "I see millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?"

Watson ponders for a minute. "Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Timewise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, its evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?"

Holmes is silent for a moment, then speaks. "Watson, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent."

FROM MY MAILBOX: Selective Gas Purchase

This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the boycott campaign and rallies against gas companies lately.

The oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn't continue to "hurt" ourselves by refusing to buy gas. It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them. BUT, whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can really work.

Please read it and join us!

By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about P25.00 is super cheap. Me too! It is currently P33.00 for regular unleaded now. Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a liter of gas is CHEAP at P25.00, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace....not sellers.

With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action. The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas!

And we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves. How?

Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop buying gas. But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together to force a price war.

Here's the idea:

For the rest of this year, DON"T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies, SHELL and CALTEX. If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.

But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Shell and Caltex gas buyers. It's really simple to do!! Now, don't whimp (sic) out on me at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!

I am sending this note to about thirty people. If each of you send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers!

If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted! If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!! Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people and DON"T purchase ANY gasoline from Shell and Caltex. That's all.

How long would all that take? If each of us sends this email out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!!! I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you! Acting together we can make a difference.

If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on.

PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE P20.00/LITER RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.!!!

News Update: Debt cancellation that will make a difference!


This weekend, 184 world leaders stood up and signed on to the G8 plan for 100% debt cancellation for 38 of the world's poorest countries. At Washington meetings of the World Bank and IMF, top officials agreed to a plan for up to $55 billion in debt cancellation, funding that will get kids in school, build health clinics and put clean water into more communities. 18 countries will be the first to benefit, and others will also in the near future.

What is debt cancellation? It means releasing poor countries from crushing debts, left over in many cases from loans stolen by corrupt dictators and negligent donors. It means honest leaders in some of the world's poorest countries will no longer have to choose between taking care of their people or repaying impossible debts. It means giving people the fresh start they need to create real opportunity and change lives.

From meetings in church basements to the millions who took part in the Live 8 concerts, over 1.5 million of you joined people around the world to demand real action on debt cancellation. This weekend's historic agreement is what ONE is all about: you raised your voice as ONE, and decision makers answered your call and did more to save lives in the poorest countries.

FROM MY MAILBOX: UNTIRING LOVE

This is a true story that happened in Japan.

In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan tears open the wall.

Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet. He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 10 years ago when the house was first built.

What happened?

The lizard has survived in such position for 10 years! In a dark wall partition for 10 years without moving, it is impossible and mind boggling. Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 10 years without moving a single step--since its foot was nailed!

So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what and how it has been eating. Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard, with food in its mouth.

Ahh! He was stunned and touched deeply. For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 10 years...

Such love, such a beautiful love! Such love happened even with this tiny creature ... What can love do? It can do wonders! Love can do miracles! Imagine? it has been doing that untiringly for 10 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.

Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can't.

I was touched when I heard this story and started wondering about relationships between family members, friends, lovers, brothers, sisters.

As information and communication technology advances, our access to information becomes faster and faster. But the distance between human beings... is it getting closer as well.

I ask you... please never abandon your loved ones.

Transformational not Transactional Leadership

We need Transformational Leadership

We need in this country what James Macgregor Burns has called "transformational leadership" -- leadership that responds to fundamental needs and hopes by transcending, innovating and reconstructing the system it works in, and raises the ability of the people to help themselves.

We must distinguish this from "transactional leadership", which is mainly engaged in bargaining, accomodating, manipulating and compromising within the prevailing system.

For much of our history, we have had an abundance of transactional leaders and precious few transformational leaders. And we cannot transact our way through the 21st century.

Transactional leadership is what we know hereabouts as "cash-sunduan leadership" -- which infects our politics and government like cancer.

HOW TO DETECT A 2-WAY MIRROR

When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror i.e., they can see you, but you can't see them. There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms or bathroom or bedrooms. It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by just looking at it. So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?

CONDUCT THIS SIMPLE TEST:

Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE mirror.

However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE, IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR! (There is someone seeing you from the other side). So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the "fingernail test." It doesn't cost you anything. It is simple to do.

This is a really good thing to do. The reason there is a gap on a real mirror, is because the silver is on the back of the mirror UNDER the glass. Whereas with a two-way mirror, the silver is on the surface. Keep it in mind! Make sure and check every time you enter in hotel rooms. May be someone is making a film on you.

Press Release: Art Workshops at Art Informal

THE POWER TO CREATE
(A Creativity Workshop)

All of us have a strong desire to follow our creative impulses, and at the same time, find personal meaning and fulfillment through our creative work. However, real life concerns often make us postpone our creative efforts and lead us to bouts of frustration, uncertainty and apathy. A creativity workshop empowers us to realize our potential to create, providing a sacred space where our creative selves and ideas can break through.

Through the Creativity Development Program at Art Informal, a creativity workshop has been established. Called THE POWER TO CREATE, it is an eight-session program, the foundation of which is creative collaboration. The first four sessions will deal with the nature of creativity and how blocks arise, and what tools we have at our disposal to overcome them. The last four sessions will focus specifically on the rudiments of the creative process, and how this can be applied to our personal goals, work and life. Activities include journal writing, morning pages, guided visualizations, meditation, Zen watercolor painting, collaborative projects and experiential exercises. Anyone who seeks to live more creatively, and anyone engaged in a creative field (visual artists, writers, musicians, performers, entrepreneurs, designers, etc.) will benefit hugely from this workshop.

There is also a special workshop for children, called Creativity Workshop for Kids (ages 7-12), which will feature activities such as storytelling, show-and-tell, meditation, automatic drawing and freeform writing. The kids’ workshop is seen as a supplement to their school-based activities, and will feature intuitive, right-brain exercises and approaches.

Visual artist and writer Jojo Ballo will facilitate the workshops on creativity utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach. Ballo has exhibited his artworks in Pinto Art Gallery in Antipolo and Boston Gallery in Cubao, and has a background in Architecture from U.P. Diliman. He is also a researcher, designer, illustrator, ceramic painter, body artist, poet and guitarist, and draws on these multiple disciplines in distilling a comprehensive and holistic approach to the practice of creativity.

FROM MY MAILBOX: 9 Jokes

Number nine
A man is in a hotel lobby. He wants to ask the clerk a question. As he turns to go to the front desk, he accidentally bumps into a woman beside him and as he does, his elbow goes into her breast. They are both quite startled. The man turns to her and says,"Ma'am,if your heart is as soft as your breast, I know you'll forgive me." She replies, "if your penis is as hard as your elbow, I'm in room 1221."

Number eight
A young man walks up and sits down at the bar. "What can I get you?" the bartender inquires. "I want 6 shots of Jagermeister," responded the young man. "6 shots! Are you celebrating something?" "Yeah, my first blow job." "Well, in that case, let me give you a 7th on the house." "No offence, sir. But if 6 shots won't get rid of the taste, Nothing will."

Number seven
A businessman boards a flight and is lucky enough to be seated next to a gorgeous woman. They exchange brief hellos and he notices she is reading a manual about sexual statistics. He asks her about it and she replies, "This is a very interesting book about sexual statistics. It identifies that American Indians have the longest average penis and Polish men have the biggest average diameter. By the way, my name is Jill. What's yours?" He coolly replies, "Tonto Kawalski, nice to meet you."

Number six
One night, as a couple lays down for bed, the husband gently taps his wife on the shoulder and starts rubbing her arm. The wife turns over and says: "I'm sorry honey, I've got a gynecologist appointment tomorrow and I want to stay fresh." The husband, rejected, turns over and tries to sleep. A few minutes later, he rolls back over and taps his wife again. This time he whispers in her ear: "Do you have a dentist appointment tomorrow too?"

Number five
Bill worked in a pickle factory. He had been employed there for a number of years when he came home one day to confess to his wife that he had a terrible compulsion. He had an urge to stick his penis into the pickle slicer. His wife suggested that he should see a sex therapist to talk about it, but Bill indicated that he would be too embarrassed. He vowed to overcome the compulsion on his own. One day a few weeks later, Bill came home ashen. His wife could see at once that something was seriously wrong. "What's wrong, Bill?" she asked. "Do you remember that I told you how I had this tremendous urge to put my penis into the pickle slicer?" "Oh, Bill, you didn't." "Yes, I did." "My God, Bill, what happened?" "I got fired." "No, Bill. I mean, what happened with the pickle slicer?" "Oh...she got fired too."

Number four
A man was visiting his wife in hospital where she has been in a coma for several years. On this visit, he decides to rub her left breast instead of just talking to her. On doing this, she lets out a sigh. The man runs out and tells the doctor who says this is a good sign and suggests he should try rubbing her right breast to see if there is any reaction. The man goes in and rubs her right breast and this brings a moan from his wife and the doctor suggests the man should go in and try oral sex, saying he will wait outside as it is a personal act and he doesn't want the man to be embarrassed. The man goes in then comes out about five minutes later, white as a sheet and tells the doctor his wife is dead. The doctor asks what happen to which the man replies: "She choked."

Number three
A guy walks into a bar with a pet alligator by his side. He puts the alligator up on the bar. He turns to the astonished patrons. "I'll make you a deal. I will open this alligator's mouth and place my genitals inside. Then the alligator will close his mouth for one minute. He will then open his mouth and I will remove my unit unscathed. In return for witnessing this spectacle, each of you will buy me a drink." The crowd murmured their approval. The man stood up on the bar, dropped his trousers, and placed his privates in the alligator's open mouth. The alligator closed his mouth as the crowd gasped. After a minute, the man grabbed a beer bottle and rapped the alligator hard on the top of its head. The alligator opened his mouth and the man removed his genitals unscathed as promised. The crowd cheered and the first of his free drinks was delivered. The man stood up again and made another offer. "I'll pay anyone $100 who's willing to give it a try". A hush fell over the crowd. After a while, a hand went up in the back of the bar. A woman timidly spoke up. "I'll try, but you have to promise not to hit me on the head with the beer bottle".

Number two
A small guy goes into an elevator, when he gets in he notices a huge dude standing next to him. The big dude looks down upon the small guy and says: "7 foot tall, 350 pounds, 20 inch dick, 3 pound left ball, 3 pound right ball, Turner Brown" The small guy faints! The big dude picks up the small guy, brings him to, slapping his face and shaking him, and asks the small guy. "What's wrong?" The small guy says, "Excuse me but what did you say?" The big dude looks down and says "7 foot tall, 350 pounds, 20 inch dick, 3 pound left ball, 3 pound right ball, my name is Turner Brown." The small guy says, "Thank god, I thought you said 'Turn around.'"

Number one
A couple had been married for 50 years. They were sitting at the breakfast table one morning when the old gentleman said to his wife, "Just think, honey, we've been married for 50 years." "Yeah," she replied, "Just think, fifty years ago we were sitting here at this breakfast table together." "I know," the old man said, "We were probably sitting here naked as jaybirds fifty years ago." "Well," Granny snickered, "What do you say...should we get naked?" Where upon the two stripped to the buff and sat down at the table. "You know, honey," the little old lady breathlessly replied, "My nipples are as hot for you today as they were fifty years ago." "I wouldn't be surprised," replied Gramps. "One's in your coffee and the other is in your oatmeal."

Support Pinoy Coconut Geotextile

Let's Support Pinoy Coconut Geotextile - a Finalist in BBC's World Challenge!

Fellow Pinoys,

Did you know that the Philippines' coconut geotextile (a.k.a. coconet) for soil erosion control has been chosen as one of the 12 finalists in Newsweek and BBC's (British Broadcasting Corporation) World's World Challenge?

The World Challenge is basically a competition/ search designed at identifying groups or individuals all over the world whose projectshave contributed great impact at grass roots level.

A documentary about Philippine Coconut geotextile or coconet industry will be shown on the BBC World cable channel on September 24 around8:30 GMT and will also be featured in the August 29 special issue of Newsweek.

"The World Challenge" already offers a tremendous exposure and publicity to our flourishing Philippine coconut geotextile industryand to our Philippine coconut fiber exporters. But it would be great pride for our country, which has been getting very bad publicitynowadays, to win this prestigious competition. By making the Coconets win the best project, we will show to the whole world that Filipinos are not only creative but also majority, if not all, of the Filipinos around the globe are very much united.

To vote, please open http://www.theworldchallenge.co.uk/vote.php and click the picture of Philippine coconet.

Please help us campaign for more voters by forwarding this message to your co-worker, friends and relatives.

Thanks!

P.S. One of those involved in the development of coconut fibers is Dr. Bo Arboleda from Albay.

Your Hidden Talent
You are a great communicator. You have a real way with words.
You're never at a loss to explain what you mean or how you feel.
People find it easy to empathize with you, no matter what your situation.
When you're up, you make everyone happy. But when you're down, everyone suffers.

Slumbering Beauty (for Chie)

As you sleep, the shadows
walk across your body -
Protecting your soul
Softly,
daintily.
Brushing emissions of light
Onto your peaceful face.

Your eyelids are the joy
of all that is tepid
adorned with lashes of silk ebony,
resting in perfect unity.

Your lips- like candy coated apples-
Still expose the melody of a smile
that lived in your waking day.

Little angels enlighten your ears
with spiritual guidance.
Attending you patiently
until morning's first breath.
For your repose is contentment
in the eyes of darkened sky.

FROM MY MAILBOX: FBI Test

The FBI had an opening for an assassin. After all the background checks, interviews, and testing were done there were 3 finalists. Two men and a woman.

For the final test, the FBI agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.

"We must know that you will follow your instructions no matter what the circumstances. Inside the room you will find your wife sitting in a chair. Kill Her!"

The man said, "You can't be serious, I could never shoot my wife."

The agent said, "Then you're not the right man for this job. Take your wife and go home."

The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes. The man came out with tears in his eyes, "I tried, but I can't kill my wife."

The agent said, "You don't have what it takes. Take your wife and go home."

Finally, it was the woman's turn. She was gi ven the same instructions, to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman. She wiped the sweat from her brow.

"This gun is loaded with blanks" she said. "I had to beat him to death with the chair."
