Online friends...

There's a land where I go, when I need to share,

That's not on a map, yet exists everywhere;

Lots of names without faces, a curious place,

A virtual creation that's called — cyberspace.

There are all sorts of people with cute little handles,

Like Jasmine and Sandman and Rosebud and Jangles;

Some can be snobs, though most are great fun,

And some of them just want to talk with someone.

Both good and bad, they all… Continue

READING MAKES A FULL MAN


A man who does not read is not fit to be called a man

If you are weak in English , read English news papers and books.

This habit will make you wise and will be useful to the societe

Are you agree with me?????????

Tips on writing blogs

In order to write a good blog, you really need to:



1. know why you want to write one. You may want to express your feelings, thoughts or opinions about something. Or you may have a good idea, a short story or some information to share. Or you just want to write a blog for yourself.



2. make sure your writing is legible/readable. No one really likes reading anything more complicated/time consuming or full of mistakes. Make your blogs succinct/concise - using…

How to lead a happy life?

There are plenty of opinions as to what the so-called “happy life” is. Also, there are lots of answers that arise from the questions “what is a happy life and how can it be attained?” The man’s idea of a happy life will be entirely different from another, what is the third regards as a happy life may be acceptable neither to the first nor to the second. My ideas of a happy life, therefore, may not meet yours. According to me, happiness is the goal of all people and all wishes to live a happy… Continue

Christmas in the USA

Christmas is a very special holiday in the USA. It is especially meaningful for children. And I am sure you can understand why. Children receive presents; they have to behave really well so that Santa Claus will visit their home on Christmas Eve and leave them the very special present they want. When my children were very little, they would be so good for several months before Christmas, that it was wonderful. Our home was very peaceful and the children helped when asked and were polite almost… Continue

Believe or not ?!

Today, on this way I come back home again

Alone to go alone

I walk in the sun but I pray for raining

I whisper the lyric of "crying in the rain" song

But I don’t cry because the sun is still shining

I wonder if I was lost my way

Suddenly I shiver with cold and fear



I received an unknow message

I guessed it was yours but I was wrong.

I coudn’t sleep !

The sound of rain reminded me to miss your voice

That reason why I called… Continue

Health is Wealth

Eating is my favorite thing to do aside from reading. Especially these holiday season, I can't resist eating even though sometimes my stomach is full. Just kidding. We must all remember that you should know what you eat and in moderation. There's a saying that health is wealth. I find it true. It's because if we are healthy, we feel good about ourselves and to others. We can think clearly. We can enjoy every minute of our lives here on earth.



Aside from eating, we should have time… Continue

A short story by Josef Essberger



"You don't have to be French to enjoy a decent red wine," Charles Jousselin de Gruse used to tell his foreign guests whenever he entertained them in Paris. "But you do have to be French to recognize one," he would add with a laugh.

After a lifetime in the French diplomatic corps, the Count de Gruse lived with his wife in an elegant townhouse on Quai Voltaire. He was a likeable man, cultivated of course, with a well deserved… Continue

When people shout ...

Someone in the neighbourhood was arguing ...I put my hands over my ears not to hear ...Got hurt ,tried to express myself in this piece of writing ...



When people shout ,I keep my ears blocked by my hands ...

When people curse ,I pretend not to hear ,though hurt at heart ...

When people insult ,I wonder with myself ,why!!!

When people misjudge ,I whisper what a fool they are ...

When people come along with one another after a fight ,I say to myself ,why not since… Continue
