The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by its color and drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital, where he died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her husband.
When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and uttered just five words.
1. What were the five words ?
2. What is the implication of this story?
The husband just said "I am with you Darling"
The husband's totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point in finding fault with the mother. Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.
No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child. What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.
If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.
MORAL OF THE STORY
Sometimes we spend time in asking who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know. By this way we miss out some warmth in human relationship.
know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours?
2. People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire
room for the tv remote because they refuse to walk to the tv and
change the channel manually.
3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it
too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?
4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course
it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it?
Do people do this? Who and where are they? Gonna Kick their …….!!!
5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that?". No
Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn
6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?".... Didn't really
give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?
7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new,
then there has never been anything before it. If it's an
improvement, then there must have been something before it,
couldn't be new.
8. When people say "life is short". What the hell?? Life is the
longest damn thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's
9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus
come yet?". If the bus came would I be standing here?
When they get there, St. Peter says, "We only have one rule here in heaven: don't step on the ducks!"
So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.
Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw.
St. Peter chains them together and says, "Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!"
The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn't miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.
The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps.
She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on ... very tall, long eyelashes, muscular, and thin.
St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.
The happy woman says, "I wonder what I did to deserve being Chained to you for all of eternity?"
The guy says, "I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck!"
A long time ago in China, a girl named Li-Li got married &
went to live with her husband and mother-in-law. In a very
short time, Li-Li found that she couldn't get along with her
mother-in-law at all. Their personalities were very
different, and Li-Li was angered by many of her
mother-in-law's habits. In addition, she criticized Li-Li constantly.
Days passed and weeks passed. Li-Li and her mother-in-law
never stopped arguing and fighting. But what made the
situation even worse was that, according to ancient Chinese
tradition, Li-Li had to bow to her mother-in-law and obey her
every wish. All the anger and unhappiness in the house was
causing Li-Li's poor husband great distress.
Finally, Li-Li could not stand her mother-in-law's bad temper
and dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do something
about it. Li-Li went to see her father's good friend, Mr.
Huang, who sold herbs. She told him the situation and asked
if he would give her some poison so that she could solve the
problem once and for all. Mr. Huang thought for a while, and
finally said, "Li-Li, I will help you solve your problem,
but you must listen to me and obey what I tell you."
Li-Li said, "Yes, Mr. Huang, I will do whatever you tell me to do."
Mr. Huang went into the back room, and returned in a few
minutes with a package of herbs. He told Li-Li, "You can't
use a quick-acting poison to get rid of your mother-in-law,
because that would cause people to become suspicious.
Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that will
slowly build up poison in her body. Every other day prepare
some delicious meal and put a little of these herbs in her
serving. Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspect you.
When she dies, you must be very careful to act very friendly
towards her. Don't argue with her, obey her every wish, and
treat her like a queen."
Li-Li was so happy. She thanked Mr. Huang and hurried home to
start her plot of murdering her mother-in-law. Weeks went by
and months went by, and every other day, Li-Li served the
specially treated food to her mother-in-law. She remembered
what Mr. Huang had said about avoiding suspicion, so she
controlled her temper, obeyed her mother-in-law, and treated
her like her own mother. After six months had passed, the
whole household had changed. Li-Li had practiced controlling
her temper so much that she found that she almost never got
mad or upset.
She hadn't had an argument with her mother-in-law in six
months because she now seemed much kinder and easier to get
along with. The mother-in-law's attitude toward Li-Li
changed, and she began to love Li-Li like her own daughter.
She kept telling friends and relatives that Li-Li was the
best daughter-in-law one could ever find. Li-Li and her
mother-in-law were now treating each other like a real mother
and daughter. Li-Li's husband was very happy to see what was
One day, Li-Li came to see Mr. Huang and asked for his help
again. She said, "Dear Mr. Huang, please help me to keep the
poison from killing my mother-in-law! She's changed into such
a nice woman, and I love her like my own mother. I do not
want her to die because of the poison I gave her."
Mr. Huang smiled and nodded his head. "Li-Li, there's nothing
to worry about. I never gave you any poison. The herbs I
gave you were vitamins to improve her health. The only poison
was in your mind and your attitude toward her, but that has
been all washed away by the love which you gave to her."
HAVE YOU REALIZED that how you treat others is exactly how
they will treat you? There is a wise Chinese saying: "The
person who loves others will also be loved in return."
God might be trying to work in another person's life through
you. Send this to your friends and spread the POWER OF LOVE.
Remember, if you delete this mail nothing will happen. No one
will die or fall sick. But... if you send it to others your
may change their life.
After all you have got nothing to lose but a lot to gain.
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.
Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.
Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that's not meant to be.
Slower is better.
Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.
If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't "be friends".? A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend.
Don't settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.
Don't stay because you think "it will get better."? You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.
Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?
Always have your own set of friends separate from his.
Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.
If something bothers you, speak up.
Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man's behavior. Change comes from within.
Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are... even if he has more education or in a better job.
Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less.
Never let a man define who you are.
Never borrow someone else's man. If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.
A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.
All men are NOT dogs.
You should not be the one doing all the bending...compromise is two way street.
You need time to heal between relationships...there is nothing cute about baggage... deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.
You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you... a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals... look for someone complimentary...not supplementary.
Dating is fun... even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.
Make him miss you sometimes... when a man always know where you are, and you're always readily available to him - he takes it for granted.
Never move into his mother's house.
Never co-sign for a man.
Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.
Share this with other women... You'll make someone smile, another rethink her choices, and another woman prepare.

Lurpak: Flying high in the Middle East
Emirates Flight Catering, the catering company which services all aircraft using Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates, has renewed íts contract with Arla Foods for the supply of Lurpak 10g mini portions.
“The contract is hugely important to us because it means that very large numbers of travellers will encounter the Lurpak brand every day,” said Søren Ustrup, Business Development Manager, Arla NFPC UAE, Arla Foods' subsidiary in the Emirates. “As Dubai Airport is a very busy transit airport, the contract means that we will reach a large section of the world’s travelling population.”
Measured in passenger volume Dubai International Airport ranks among the world’s largest. With 22 million passengers in 2004, it is also the busiest airport in the Middle East by far. The home of the Emirates Airline, Dubai is expected to handle in excess of 50 million passengers in 2010.
1.2 million portions per month
Lurpak is the Middle East’s leading butter brand accounting for a market share of approx. 64% in the UAE, Arla Foods’ second largest Middle Eastern market after Saudi Arabia.
”The contract illustrates Foodservice Middle East’s importance to our future business activities in the region,” explains Martin Jensen, Foodservice Marketing, Overseas Division, Middle East Region.
“Consumers should not only encounter our strong brands, such as Lurpak, in stores – there are other unexploited opportunities in the Middle East which we’ll be taking a closer look at.”
The new contract runs from January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2006 and comprises approximately 145 tons per year, i.e. around 1.2 million mini portions monthly.
Arla NFPC employs a workforce of 142.

I can’t believe my self that I managed to defend my self in few seconds when I started to be accused and I had all the answers escaping my mind through my mouth and I thank God for giving me such power to prove that I was right and the accuser was 100% wrong.
The accuser tried to justify and apologies to me after she was shocked when I defended my self and I told her “No need to apologies, I’m not angry because it’s the way you think and not mine, no need to feel sorry”.

The drawback of this type of protocol that easy to send and receive viruses.
I conceder e-channel has made my life much easier when ever I need to top up my prepaid mobile account through phone banking when ever I need to credit it and top up other people’s accounts at anytime too, I feel that who are working un such organization must know about the e-channels and be the first ones to use such facilities so it’s easy for them to respond to inquires of the existing and prospective customers.
I’ve heard that NBO, a local Omani bank has enforced a new law that all the prospective staff must have a credit card when they join the organization, it’s a way to encourage them to use the products and services.
