"With the living room, it was the most direct way of saying 'We live here. This is our living space.'"said the children's author and traffic campaigner, Ted Dewan who has been working on implementing his traffic campaigner by setting a living room as a stop sign in an residential area to force the drivers to lower their speed in residential area for safety and peace for the drivers, passengers and the residence.

The fourth series of Harry Potter is out in the Middle East on 28 December 2005 while it was out worldwide on 18 November 2005 and planning to watch it soon.
I logged on to Hi5 network and had a shocking moment to know that some people whom they come from restricted religious family background are been hyper in the world of parties.
Work is good; checking, analyzing and writing my observations.
The OBA 2005
Soon the polls will start, the clock is clicking.
Checking out the news round the corner.
A good deep sleep
Went to the movie and watched ‘Chicken Little’, then went shopping and then dinner and a white hot chocolate from second cup.
Best white hot chocolate
Best frozen yorgat with strobaey topping
Best lime & mint juice
Best salt and pepper squid
China Town restaurant
Best place to relax
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.
Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask How are you?
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?
You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.
Ever told your child,
We'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say,"Hi"
You'd better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.
When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift....
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

I was riding the auto rickshaw, listening to one of Yanni’s piece of his work, I remembered the day I landed in Bangalore and going around looking for a hotel it reminded me of Zanzibar.
While I was writing about Bangalore, I had flash of memory about Kenya, the memories of over 23 years old.
Time is running and the weather is beautiful and winter is starting.

It feels good when I get appriciated by my colleagues after I helped them with their project, I knew they are busy as I am with work, I just gave them the blueprint and they maaged to complete their work. Best wishes to everyone.
“When you make a disicion, what ever it is right or wrong, good or bad, you have to go ahead and move on”; that what my lecturer told me & my classmates, and I agree with her.
Don’t be in a hurry to meet the deadline, take as much time as you can to learn to build the right bases.
Love is a biutifull feeling, if you let your mind or heart take over each other, you are doomed and you’ll be safe if you let each of them share the cotrol. (I don’t know what I’m saying, it just an observation from the lovebirds.)

I have various reasons that made me move out from my old job I won't reveal my reasons to anyone, I need my privacy.
I've been going through allot of emotional changes for over a year and I finally learnt how to get over it by writing it down and read it everyday for a whole week then destroyed it for ever.
What will you do if you gave someone a chance to be part of your life and he/she didn't take it and choose someone else instead and when the other person comes rejects him/her and finally after long time he/she tries to come back to you , will you accept that or not? Is he/she worth it or not?
I'd like to thank people who have been visiting my journals/blogs.

I was thinking about the electronic gadgets I want to own one day, such as an mobile music system such as an MP3 player or iPod; I realized what a west of money, the technology is rapidly developing, in few years what I bought will worth nothing, what fit with other format of music, etc. In the Arab world, I never seen an advertisement that says "Second Hand music stereo or music walkman or play station or iPod needed", only Mobile/cellular phones are been treaded or sold as a 2nd hand gadget in the Arab world.

They mainly forcasing on the events such as fasting and reading Quraan during the holy month of Ramadhan, but you can take the advanrage of it in aplying in all year.
Fasting is a test from God to purify your body and soal from nogative elements in what ever form it is.
I admir the attempt of non-Muslims in trying to fast or who have managed to fast.
The tyipical way of fasting is not to drink nor eat any thing from the Fajar prayer to the Magreb prayer.

woman. The rope was not strong enough to carry them all, so they
decided that one had to leave, because otherwise they were all going to
fall. They weren't able to name that person, until the woman gave a
very touching speech. She said that she would voluntarily let go of the
rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her
husband and kids, or for men in general, and was used to always making
sacrifices with little in return. As soon as she finished her speech,
all the men started clapping their hands.....
"What do you want that for?" the pharmacist asks.
"I want to kill my husband," she replies. "He's having an affair with another woman."
"I can't sell you arsenic to kill your husband," says the pharmacist, "even if he is cheating."
The woman pulls out a picture of her husband with the pharmacist's wife. The pharmacist turns pale and replies, "Oh, I didn't realize you had a prescription!"
The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder.
I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being.
She said, "Hi handsome. My name is Rose.
I'm eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?"
I laughed and enthusiastically responded, "Of course you may!" and she gave me a giant squeeze.
"Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?" I asked.
She jokingly replied, "I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids..."
"No seriously," I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.
"I always dreamed of having a college education and now I'm getting one!" she told me.
After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake.
We became instant friends. Every day for the next three months we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this "time machine" as she shared her wisdom and experience with me.
Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made friends wherever she went.
She loved to dress up and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up.
At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet.
I'll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced and stepped up to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor.
Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said, "I'm sorry I'm so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I'll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know."
As we laughed she cleared her throat and began, "We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing.
There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day. You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die.
We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even ! know it!
There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up.
If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old. If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.
Anybody can grow older. That doesn't take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change. Have no regrets.
The elderly usually don't have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets."
She concluded her speech by courageously singing "The Rose."
She challenged each of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily lives.
At the year's end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago.
One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep.
Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it's never too late to be all you can possibly be.
When you finish reading this, please send this peaceful word of advice to your friends and family, they'll really enjoy it!
These words have been passed along in loving memory of ROSE.
REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL.
We make a Living by what we get, We make a Life by what we give.
God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
"Good friends are like stars.........You don't always see them, but you know they are always there."
"We are only passing through this world to get to a better place.
Please take the time to help someone along the way."

A leading jeweller is demanding that hundreds of its male employees in the UAE shave off their facial hair. Fearing job losses, about 100 employees working at Alukkas Jewellery - mainly from Kerala, in south India - have already abandoned their moustaches.
Hundreds more are debating whether to comply with the company - part of the Joy Alukkas group which employs around 2,500 workers across the GCC. When contacted, Joy Alukkas, Group MD would not comment on the issue, though he is understood to have shaved off his moustache to set an example.
But senior management sources said the move to ask employees to shave was on a trial basis before the group extended it to other divisions of the company. No clear reason for the decision was forthcoming.
“All 400 employees of Alukkas Jewellery are asked to remove their beard as early as possible. Apparently it is part of the top management decision but we don’t know the rationale of such a utopian idea,” said one employee who added that he values his moustache as a symbol of personal taste and dignity.
Staff say they were told of the new policy by fax. “It is my privilege to grow a beard or moustache. Forcing me to remove that for the sake of the company’s policy is unacceptable,” said another who insisted that he would not accept the decision at any cost.
“Even the general managers and marketing chiefs are not spared from the decision,” added an employee. Alukkas Jewellery has around 38 outlets spread across the Gulf - including in Dubai’s Gold Souk in Deira - in the Middle East and Kerala in India. The Group says it is the world's leading “22 karat jewellery retailer”.
I've read some reviews about the book, I fully agree that the first half of the book is kind of slow, as if the author was draging/ forcing her self to write, slow motions I believe.
At the moment that event started to pick up, and I'm enjoying it.
Allot of questions arrasied in my mind,
What happened to Albus Dumbledore's hand?
Is Draco Malfoy a Death Eater?
Will Dumbledore find out that Severus Snape is a double agent?
To douse who haven’t read 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince', don't search for any information at Wikipedia, it has all the information from the first book until the last of everything, even the character's information up to date.

Apply freely over burns. It cools, removes pain and aids fast healing without scarring. Apart from being a salve and antibiotic, bacteria cannot live in honey.
A teaspoon of honey before bed, aids water retention and calms fears in children.
A dessert spoon of honey in a mug of hot milk aids sleep and works wonders!
Honey is a mild sedative with minerals, vitamins, amino acids etc. Replace all white sugar with honey. White sugar is highly stimulating with no food qualities!
Place a dessertspoon of honey in a basin of hot water and inhale fumes after covering your head with a towel over the basin. Very effective.
Wounds or Grazes
Cover wound with honey and a bandage. Excellent healer.
Dissolve a dessertspoon of honey in warm water or quarter honey balance of water in a jug and keep in the fridge. Honey is primarily fructose and glucose and so it is quickly absorbed by the digestive system. (Honey is a unique natural stabilizer - ancient Greek athletes took honey for stamina before competing and as a reviver after competition.)
Facial Deep Cleanser
Mix honey with oatmeal approx. 50/50 till thick and apply as a face-pack. Leave on for half an hour then wash off. Great as a deep cleanser for acne etc.
Mix honey with apple cider vinegar approx. 50/50 and dilute to taste with water - aids digestion. (Also reputed to be wonderful for the joints.
Mix honey with equal quantity of Olive Oil and cover head with a warm towel for half and hour then shampoo off. Feeds hair and scalp. Hair will never look or feel better!
Let a teaspoon of honey melt in the back of the mouth and trickle down the throat. Eases inflamed raw tissues.
Honey in water is a stabilizer - calms highs and raises lows. Use approx. 25 percent honey to water.
Honey is the best blood enricher by raising corpuscle content. The darker the honey the more minerals it contains.
Cakes with honey replacing sugar stay fresher longer due to natural antibiotics. Reduce liquids by approx. one-fifth to allow for moisture in honey.
These people are well advised to replace white sugar (sucrose) with honey, natural fructose and glucose.
Chewing the tops of comb honey stimulates the immune system due to minute amounts of pollen. During the season chew for 20 minutes a teaspoon of bee cappings (tops) five to six times per day. Highly effective and useful for asthma suffers as well.
Four teaspoons of honey to a baby's bottle of water is an excellent pacifier and multivitamin additive. If baby's motions are too liquid then reduce by half a teaspoon; if too solid increase by half a teaspoon.
Honey rubbed on a baby's gums is a mild sedative and anaesthetic.
English research has shown that a teaspoon of honey per day aids calcium utilisation and prevents osteoporosis. Essential from age 50 onwards.
One common fact worldwide is that the most long-lived people are regular users of honey. An interesting fact yet to be explained is that beekeepers suffer less from cancer and arthritis than any other occupational group worldwide.
Use a dessertspoon of honey dissolved in half a glass of warm water. Sip at start of attack. If necessary repeat in 20 minutes. Always effective (so tip goes) as migraine is stress related.
Conjunctivitis (pus in the eye)
Honey dissolved in equal quantity of warm water. Apply when cooled as lotion or eye bath.
6 ozs liquid honey
2 ozs glycerine
Juice of 2 lemons
Mix well. Bottle and cork firmly. Use as required
Keep honey in first aid cupboard for emergency burns etc and another in the kitchen cupboard.
Those interested in a more scientific explanation can refer to Kaye M. Russell's 1983 MSc thesis, Waikato University, "Antibiotic qualities of NZ honeys" - a NZ explanation of knowledge long-buried and available through the public library on request.

Dear all, please read this important message about why the site is not working...
Over the past couple of years blogLinker has become very popular, thanks to all of you except the porn spammers and their kind. So popular in fact, that the site started causing data traffic server problems. The hosting company offered to upgrade the server. I accepted their offer, but they basically *completely* fudged the move to the new server.
I won't bore you with the details, but the low-down is this: I have decided to part ways with the current hosting provider and I am currently half way through moving hosting companies. This will hopefully not take more than a couple of days but it explains why the database is down and the service is crappy.
The bad news is that the hosting company deleted the database without informing me or backing up. Clever, I know. Luckily I had taken a backup, although this is 9 days old, but this will have to do for now. I also have the emails of all - even the most recent - members. So those that joined within the last 9 days, will be contacted and asked to re-join..
The good news is that I will be working out a self-policing system to finally get rid of these porn spammers once and for all. Basically, if more than say 20 people hide links to a member, I will automatically suspend that member, simple as that. So members will be forced to think twice before linking to other unrelated members.
I can make the threshold more or less; just let me know your thoughts. Also, if you want a forum/messageboard, I can sort that out as well. Basically, just let me know what you want and I'll try and make it happen.
In the meantime, what can I say - thanks for your patience.

I don't cretisise their motives, but it comes with experiance of how they have been treated. At end of the day, they are humans like rest.
By Sunita Menon and Daniel Bardsley, Staff Reporters
Dubai: We have all seen job adverts for employers who are after staff of one nationality or another.
Maybe the company is looking for an Indian driver, a Filipino office manager, an Arab public relations executive or a European construction manager.
However, the tables are now being turned and instead it is employees who are starting to specify the nationality of their employer.
Daniel Bardsley/Gulf News
Many job-seekers stick or place advertisements at public places, shopping centres, supermarkets or on walls although it is against municipality rules.
Many housemaids are now expressing a preference for one nationality or another in personal adverts that are on display in some of Dubai's shops.
For example, there is the "experienced maid" who is seeking "immediate employment with accommodation from a European family".
Another Sri Lankan maid who claims 12 years' experience in looking after children is looking for "full-time employment with an American or British family with sponsorship".
When asked why she was advertising for an American or a European family, Francesca, a 37-year-old Filipina, said it was "just the Filipino way".
"Some of the families from other countries pay you less salary but make you work harder," she said.
Francesca, who is currently in the UAE on a visit visa, said she would also happily work for a Chinese family, having spent 16 years employed by one in the past.
Radhika, 45, a Sri Lankan maid, said she preferred working with British, European and even Indian families because they treated maids well.
"I have experience working with these nationalities and it is quite good. I worked for three years for a British family in Dubai before they moved to Qatar.
"They treated me quite well. I was paid Dh1,400 a month. I used to get weekly days off and gifts for Christmas," she said.
Radhika said she ironed, cleaned and babysat for the British family and the working hours were not excessive.
She said a couple of Indian families had telephoned her and made enquiries about her work experience, family background and the salary she expects.
"I don't mind working for an Indian family. I have to get a job soon as my visit visa will expire in a few days," she said.
Lisa, 32, a Filipina maid who is in the UAE on a visit visa, said friends had advised her to try to find an employer from the United Kingdom or another European country.
A Dubai Municipality official said sticking or placing any adverts in a public place, shopping centre, supermarket or on walls is prohibited.
The Waste Service Section at the Environment Department of the Municipality had also issued a circular in January 2004 to shopping centres and supermarkets to remove any advertising material pasted in their premises. But the practice continues.

I'm in a mood to try out fresh sugurcane Juice.

Once I saw a little bird
Come hop, hop, hop
And I cried out "Hey, little bird
Will you stop, stop, stop?"
So off the little bird flew
So high, high, high
And he dropped a little present
In my eye, eye, eye.
At crazy hospital a doctor wanted to examine the crazies men to discover who will cure.So as to do this step ,he drew a door in a roof,then he asked them to open the door.Every on tried to open the door except one,the doctor thought that this crazy man who did not go to open the door he cured.In order to make sure,the doctor asked him:"why you did not go to open the door with your friends?"crazy man said:"because I have the key."
"How can I do now?" A young man who is going to get married complains to one of his friend, "I've changed my girl friend for many times, but no matter which one I took home, my mother just doesn't like her."
"Uh, that's easy." said his friend, "You just find someone like your mother, and that would be O.K.."
"Yes, I tried. But," said the young man, "it turned to be my father who doesn't like her then."
A woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for
yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day.One day, when he came to,
he motioned for her to come nearer. As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears :
"You know what? You have been with me through all the bad times.
When I got fired, you were there to support me.
When my business failed, you were there ..When I got shot,
you were by my side. ..When we lost the house, you stayed right here.
When my health started failing, you were still by my side...
You know what?" "What dear?",
she gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth.
"I think you're bad luck."
After drinking a sip of coffee in a coffee shop, a man felt that the coffee is terrible. So he called a waiter and asked:
- What kind of coffee is it?
+ Blended, answered the waiter.
- What do you mean by blended?, the man asked.
+ Last week's and this week's.
So, stop waiting ...
Until your car or home is paid off
Until you get a new car or home
Until your kids leave the house
Until you go back to school
Until you finish school
Until you lose 10 lbs
Until you gain 10 lbs
Until you get married
Until you get a divorce
Until you have kids
Until you retire
Until you die.
There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So work like you don't need money, love like you've never been hurt,
and, dance like no one's watching.

5. How much does something have to cost before it starts counting as "real" money, as a purchase to be considered and evaluated, but below which you'll buy without really thinking about it?
If it going to be wearth and usefull to me, it will have a value.

This was an initial shock to me since I never considered money to be an issue. I don’t really care who pays for bills or if I end up paying more than someone else’s share of a bill.
We were at a lil chocolate Shoppe’ where we were selecting items to munch on later. I picked a few things and my friend picked other thing, but when we came to the cash register we both placed our items together. As the women on the counter started adding my friends’ items first she quickly separated her items from mine and made sure that none of my items were added onto her bill. I was shocked, since I would have gladly paid for the simple items together.
I then realized something that there are others that are very stringent with their money and can calculate shares to the biaza (cent), which never crossed my mind since I never considered money as an issue.
To me money is there to be used be it for oneself or with others, it’s a non lasting ‘value’ that does not matter or should not be a divide among people.
Seeds of thought
A person must value his money from the start (LOOK WHOSE TALKING!!) to enable to save when the money is needed more like in buying a house, car, someting valuable.
Generally people spend this money unessary without thinking about the future, people who haven't got the sense of money tend to not over look the future. The current/present circumstances is not the same at the future.

Petite For Life / Shahad.
You know how when you check out of a hotel that uses the credit-card-type room key, the clerk often will ask if you have your key(s) to turn in...or there is a box or slot on the Reception counter in which to put them? It's good for the hotel because they save money by re-using those cards. But, it's not good for you, as revealed below.
From the Colorado Bureau of Investigation: "Southern California law enforcement professionals assigned to detect new threats to personal security issues, recently discovered what type of information is embedded in the credit card type hotel room keys used throughout the industry. Although room keys differ from hotel to hotel, a key obtained from the "Double Tree" chain that was being used for a regional Identity Theft Presentation was found to contain the following the information:
a.. Customers (your) name
b.. Customers partial home address
c.. Hotel room number
d.. Check in date and check out date
e.. Customer's (your) credit card number andexpiration date!
When you turn them in to the front desk your personal information is there for any employee to access by simply scanning the card in the hotel scanner. An employee can take a hand full of cards home and using a scanning device, access the information onto a laptop computer and go shopping at your expense. Simply put, hotels do not erase the information on these cards until an employee re-issues the card to the next hotel guest. At that time, the new guest's information is electronically "overwritten" on the card and the previous guest's information is erased in the overwriting process. But until the card is rewritten for the next guest, it usually is kept in a drawer at the front desk with YOUR INFORMATION ON IT!!!!
The bottom line is: Keep the cards, take them home with you, or destroy them. NEVER leave them behind in the room or room wastebasket, and NEVER turn them in to the front desk when you check out of a room. They will not charge you for the card (it's illegal) and you'll be sure you are not leaving a lot of valuable personal information on it that could be easily lifted off with any simple scanning device card reader. For the same reason, if you arrive at the airport and discover you still have the card key in your pocket, do not toss it in an airport trash basket. Take it home and destroy it by cutting it up, especially through the electronic information strip!

My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.
A good wife always forgives her husband when she's wrong.
I bought my wife a new car. She called and said, "There was water in the carburetor."
I asked her, "Where's the car?"
She replied,^T In the lake."
The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret.
After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, "You know, I was a fool when I married you."
The husband replied, "Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn't notice."
When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.
I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 months - I don't like to interrupt her.
My girlfriend told me I should be more affectionate. So I got myself two girlfriends.
A man said his credit card was stolen but he decided not to report it since the thief was spending much less than his wife did.
Man is incomplete until he is married. Then he is finished.
A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?"
The father replied, "I don't know son, I'm still paying."
Young Son: Is it true, Dad, that in some parts of Africa, a Man doesn't know his wife until he marries her?
Dad: That happens in every country, son.
Then there was a man who said, "I never knew what real happiness was until I got married; then it was too late.
A man placed an ad in the classifieds: "Wife wanted."
The next day he received a hundred letters.
They all said the same: "You can have mine."
A woman was telling her friend, "I made my husband a millionaire." "And what was he before you married him?" asked the friend. "A billionaire." she replied,
Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.
Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.
It's not true that married men live longer than single men. It only seems longer.
Losing a wife can be very hard. In my case, it was almost impossible.
Just think, if it weren't for marriage, men would go through life Thinking they had no faults at all.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
A man meets a genie. The genie tells him he can ask for whatever he wants, but his mother-in-law gets double of what he gets. The man thinks for a moment and says,^T Okay, give me a million dollars and beat me till I'm half dead."
Men who have pierced ears are better prepared for marriage.
They've experienced pain and bought jewelry.
The most effective way to remember your wife's birthday is to forget it once.

Allot of TV soups and shows took it a joke for the Muslims reaction.
A big Q to thoughs who are laughing and criticizing the Muslims reaction, what will you do if your holy book is been flushed down the toilet?
a) Burn down the temple (the holy place of that religion).
b) Kill the person who did it, his family, society.
c) Chill out.
The only thing I can say that the person(s) who have done it don't respect his/her religion at all, if he/she did, he won't accept anyone to do the same, or maybe the person not a beliver to God or not folloing any religion.

Beware of SMS.ac invites
I recently received an invite to join SMS.ac from a friend in Peru. I totally disregarded it. A few days later I received another invite to my (previously) spam-free account, so I checked out the site. SMS.ac supposedly offers free ringtones and text messages via the web. This immediately sounded fishy, so I did a quick Google search. Several results also returned the phrases "stay away", "rip off" and "internet scam to the extreme". So if you get any of these invites, don't say I didn't warn you.
