'We live here. This is our living space'

"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.

I was looking for information about ‘recycling facts’ and I came across ‘e-waste’ and I want to share it with you’ll about it. I posted some related articles at TITAJ & here are some refrences.


Have you ever watched kids
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....
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.

Abu Sinan

Abu Sinan is a Western man who converted to Islam and his posts are intresting.

I read his article about finding the right spouse based on his experience after he converted to Islam and the characters that he has pointed out that she had to have.

I give the blog rate five stars.
