Accidental Pun ~ 2011jan27,1105hrs

This pun was accidentally created. 
I had written an email with enlarged fonts to a group of friends.
My group of friends' ages ranged between under 12 to over 50.
Here's how it went.

Enlarged Fonts
The enlarged fonts are for those over 40... 
apology to those under 40... 
when you're older, the bigger fonts will be easier to read

Fat ~ Got To Lose This Weight ~ This is Kirby

News ~ Rising Above All Odds ~ 2011jan26,0748hrs

Things I learned from this article:

• Floored a decade ago with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, he vowed to make every day count.

• Conceding he was "extraordinarily humbled"... He had drawn inspiration seeing '"hope conquer despair'"

• His experience of the disease had, in its own way, enriched his life.

• I have my own experience with how fickle life can be and I've been very blessed.

• I don't talk publicly about my sickness very much because I'm up the easy end of the spectrum. It is a wonderful thing for me really, because I encountered what life might have been like if I had been struck with it permanently.

• Growing up in a poorer part of town, he said he learned not only to recognize need, but to do something about it. "It was just an obvious thing to do".

Here's an update to an earlier post on Tue, Nov 16, 2010
Earlier Post ~ A Brave Reaction To An Unfortunate Accident

Selina Jen faces media for the first time since filming accident
Posted: 19 January 2011 1928 hrs

TAIPEI: S.H.E's Selina Jen faced the media for the first time in a Taipei press conference on Wednesday, 89 days after she was hospitalised for the serious burns she suffered in a filming accident on the set of Chinese drama "I Have A Date With Spring", reported Taiwan media.

looked prior to her filming accident (right). -screen

S.H.E members (from left): Ella Chen, Hebe Tien 
and Selina Jen during happier times.
Sporting a head of short hair, Jen, whose face appeared to have escaped any serious injury, entered the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital auditorium flanked by her group mates Ella Chen and Hebe Tien, to thunderous applause from the gathered journalists.

Clad in a grey bodysuit and a pink vest, the 29-year-old singer-actress, whose face now looks rounder after gaining 5 kilograms after the accident, became very emotional and broke down shortly after going onto the stage.

"Thank you everyone. I am sorry for making everyone worry. Today, I can finally go home!" Jen said as she and her group mates bowed to the audience.

"We are S.H.E!"

Despite being separated for such a long time because of the accident, Jen and her group mates seemed determined to stick together.

They indirectly dispelled fears that the group would break up by coming together to introduce themselves as a group once more, for the first time since the accident.

"Hello everyone! We are S.H.E!" the trio declared before each group member introduced herself.

Chen was visibly overjoyed. She raised her arms in triumph as Jen concluded the introductions.

Jen wept as she went on to thank her doctors and nurses for taking good care of her as well as her family members, record label HiM International Music, fans and fiance, lawyer Richard Chang, for giving her their unwavering support.

Chen later added that Jen's road to recovery "is a long one" and hoped that people will "give her some space" while Tien expressed that she deeply respected Jen for showing such courage and optimism in the face of adversity.

Jen made her exit after accepting a congratulatory bouquet and a cake from the medical staff that treated her.

Looking forward

Although there were initial fears that Jen could be disfigured, Professor Lin Zhi Hong, the doctor leading the medical team treating Jen, is optimistic that she will be able to work again.

"We believe allowing Selina to return to work is not a problem, although dressing must be applied to keep pressure on her facial scars. But I believe the future is bright."

Jen's father added that, despite her injuries, his daughter will still be able to sing and have children in the future.

He also praised Chang for sticking with her through thick and thin, calling him "a dependable other half" for Selina.

"When the accident happened, I once told him that they did not have to get married and that he could call off the wedding. But he refused."

Meanwhile, HiM International Music's general manager He Yan Ling has pledged that the company will do everything it can to aid Jen on her road to recovery and take care of her showbiz career.

She also expressed that HiM is now engaged in negotiations with Hunan Television, the broadcaster which had invited Jen to participate in "I Have A Date With Spring", over responsibility for the accident and compensation matters.

Soon after Wednesday's press conference, Taiwanese director Chen Ming Zhang, who helmed the project, issued a second apology to Jen and her group mates on his micro-blog for letting things go out of hand on the set.

The director had only recently issued a 2,000-word apology on his micro-blog but S.H.E fans complained it was too little too late.

News Story ~ Miracle Rescue ~ 3 Seconds from Death ~ The Australian, Thu, Jan 20, 2011, from Front Page cont'd on Page 6

For those of you who love a good story with a happy ending. Some call it Luck, but why lean towards hopelessness when HOPE is a better option. I'm inclined towards calling it a Miracle, and Miracles still happens in our world today.

This happened during the Great Flood of Brisbane (Australia), 2011 January.


News Story ~ Miracle Rescue
 ~ 3 Seconds from Death
 ~ The Australian, Thu, Jan 20, 2011, from Front Page cont'd on Page 6

Toowoomba's miracle flood survivor revealed

MUSICIAN Hannah Reardon-Smith is the woman who came back from the dead after she and her mother were plunged into last week's catastrophic flash flood in Toowoomba. Feared to have drowned by those who saw her desperate struggle in the maelstrom, it took a public appeal by police for information for the remarkable story of her survival to emerge. Ms Reardon-Smith, 23, and her mother, Kathryn, were trapped in their car in Toowoomba on January 10 when the walls of water smashed through the CBD of the range-top city west of Brisbane. The car was propelled into a power pole. The shocked women climbed on to its roof but were washed into the raging torrent. Two men, Jim Gray and Treg Smith, saw the pair flailing in the water and attempted to reach them but failed. Moments later, dramatic photographs were taken of Ms Reardon-Smith as she tried to fight her way to the safety of the Grand Central Shopping Centre. Her grip on the first-floor railings of the centre's carpark was broken and she was carried out. Those who thought they saw her being dragged under the water presumed the worst. What they missed was Steven Seefeld, in an unobserved part of the carpark, grasping her outstretched hands and hauling her to safety. ''She had no energy left, it was lucky she got to here, because she would have been swept away,'' Mr Seefeld told The Australian yesterday. ''Another three seconds and she would have been dead.'' As soon as Ms Reardon-Smith could catch her breath, she asked after her mother. ''She said: 'My mum's still out there', and then I saw her mum floating past.'' Mr Seefeld called to his friend, tow-truck driver Jason Iacono, who waded into the flood to save Mrs Reardon-Smith. He found her holding on to a road sign. ''She was gasping for breath, puffed and tired. All she could say was, 'My daughter, my daughter'. And I said, 'Don't worry about your daughter, we've got her'.'' Both women were distressed and exhausted, but delighted to have survived. They have since thanked Mr Smith and Mr Gray, who made the initial attempt to reach them. Ms Reardon-Smith, a professional flute player and music teacher, was recovering with her mother last night. Both declined to speak publicly through her father when their family was contacted yesterday by The Australian in Toowoomba. But Ms Reardon-Smith's father, Hugh, confirmed she was indeed the ''mystery'' woman in the photographs released by police on Tuesday. Mr Reardon-Smith said attention should be focused on people much worse off, such as those in the devastated Lockyer Valley below Toowoomba. ''The bottom line is we're really not wanting to talk to anybody, least of all the media, there's been far too much published already, we just want to deal with the trauma by ourselves,'' Mr Reardon-Smith said. Ms Reardon-Smith's MySpace page describes her as a classically trained flautist with ''a penchant for beautiful, interesting and cutting edge contemporary art music''.

Ice Hotel ~ Stacey Kent ~ Poetic & Jazzy

I heard this song on radio yesterday and liked it immediately so much that I searched the internet for it.

It's so unlike the other love songs we hear. Very poetic.
I think she's referring to a stage of love where couples need to slow down and enjoy the moment.
I would think that Ice Hotel sounded too cold for a relationship, but this poem (song) explained it quite well... 
that may be the relationship is so "hot" that, that the extreme cold was necessary.

I hope you like it as well...

It's also the Jazzy type and not easy to sing and this lady brings out the song quite well.
This is the first time I've heard of her and she's quite good... go search for other songs by her.

Here's the YouTube Link while it's still there... scroll down for the lyrics...


Ice Hotel ~ Stacey Kent (Jazz) ~ Lyrics

Let's you and me go away to The Ice Hotel
The Caribbean's all booked out, and that's just as well
Once I'd have been much keener, on Barbados or Antigua
But just now I think the arctic will suit us well
Let's you and me go away… to The Ice Hotel

They've built it all with ice that's pure and clear
The sofas, the lobby… even the chandelier
A thermostat guarantees… a steady minus five degrees
What other place could serve our needs so well
Let's you and me go away… to the Ice Hotel

Romantic places… like Verona or Paris
They'll always lead you astray
You'd have to be a novice… to ever trust Venice
And those dreamy waterways
And what the tropics can do… I know only too well
So, let's you and me go away… to the Ice Hotel

[Music Interlude]

Heavy clothing at all times… is the expected norm
Even candlelight at dinner… is considered too dangerously warm
And when the time comes for us to sleep…
We'll spread out our reindeer fleece…
And curl up together… on an ice block carved for two
But then in the morning… provided we've made it through…
We'll step out together… to watch the sun rise over…
That vast expanse of cold
And who knows if we're lucky… we may find ourselves talking…
Of what our future may hold
This is no whim of the moment… I want you to realize
Let's go away… to that palace made of ice

Let's you and me go away to the ice hotel
The Bahamas are all booked out… And that's just as well
I don't think we're quite ready… for Hawaii of Tahiti
And where we will be… only time will tell
Let's you and me go away… to The Ice Hotel

Drug ~ Opium Addiction

Be careful with things that are known to be addictive... be it Drugs, Drinking, Gambling, Smoking or anything else that causes addiction. You'll become a slave to it as it takes over (and rule) your life. Read how the British got a quarter of the male Chinese population addicted to Opium to boost the demand for it so as make money. Currently, there are people out there who are making lots of money from people who are addicted to Drinking, Gambling &/or Smoking.

After 1860, opium use continued to increase with widespread domestic production in China, until more than a quarter of the male population were regular consumers by 1905. China sought to restrict illegal British opium trafficking. It consisted of the First Opium War from 1839 to 1842 and the Second Opium War from 1856 to 1860.

Opium Wars
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Opium Wars (simplified Chinese: 鸦片战争; traditional Chinese: 鴉片戰爭; pinyin: Yāpiàn Zhànzhēng), also known as the Anglo-Chinese Wars, were the climax of trade disputes and diplomatic difficulties between China under the Qing Dynasty and the British Empire after China sought to restrict illegal British opium trafficking. It consisted of the First Opium War from 1839 to 1842[1] and the Second Opium War from 1856 to 1860.[2]

Soccer Penalty ~ Furthest Point from the Goalkeeper

I use to visit the library a lot and borrow books to help me past time. I came across this book by Pele on how to take a good penalty kick. I can't remember the details but I did remember this... you have the best chance for scoring if you place the ball at the furthest point from the Goalkeeper. This furthest point will be at the 'High-Corner' (which is where the Cross-Bar meets the Left or Right Post). To reach this 'High-Corner', the Goalkeeper will have to jump & stretch at his maximum.... on top of deciding if the ball will go Left or Right.

Furthest Point from the Goalkeeper

There is this danger of NOT being accurate... so practice, practice, practice...

Helium & Sulfur hexafluoride ~ Makes Your Voice Lower & Higher

Don't try this because there may be very dangerous side effects... instead... watch the experiments done by others shown in video links below.

Helium & Sulfur hexafluoride ~ Gases That Makes Your Voice Higher & Lower

Helium (makes voice higher)
Biological effects ~ Effect of helium on a human voice
The speed of sound in helium is nearly three times the speed of sound in air. Because the fundamental frequency of a gas-filled cavity is proportional to the speed of sound in the gas, when helium is inhaled there is a corresponding increase in the pitches of the resonant frequencies of the vocal tract.[4][100] This causes a reedy, duck-like vocal quality. (The opposite effect, lowering frequencies, can be obtained by inhaling a dense gas such as sulfur hexafluoride.) Inhaling helium can be dangerous if done to excess, since helium is a simple asphyxiant and so displaces oxygen needed for normal respiration.[4][101] Breathing pure helium continuously causes death by asphyxiation within minutes. Inhaling helium directly from pressurized cylinders is extremely dangerous, as the high flow rate can result in barotrauma, fatally rupturing lung tissue.[101][102] However, death caused by helium is rare, with only two fatalities reported between 2000 and 2004 in the United States.[102] However there have been two cases in 2010, one in the USA[103] in January and another in Northern Ireland in November[104]. At high pressures (more than about 20 atm or two MPa), a mixture of helium and oxygen (heliox) can lead to high pressure nervous syndrome, a sort of reverse-anesthetic effect; adding a small amount of nitrogen to the mixture can alleviate the problem.[105][106]

Sulfur hexafluoride (makes voice lower)
Physiological effects and precautions
Another effect is the gas's ability to alter vocal sound waves. The gas can be inhaled in a small, safe amount and cause the breather's voice to sound very deep. This is due to the gas's large molar mass. Unlike helium, which has a molar mass of about 4 grams/mol, SF6 has a molar mass of about 146 g/mol, and the velocity of sound through the gas is 0.44 times the speed of sound in air due to the large inertia of a SF6 molecule. For comparison, the molar mass of air, which is about 80% nitrogen and 20% oxygen, is approximately 30 g/mol. Inhalation of SF6 causes a lowering of the timbre, or frequency of the formants, of the vocal tract, by contrast with inhalation of helium, which raises it.[9] Other gases such as Freon or xenon have a similar effect, although xenon is generally not used for such demonstrations due to its high cost and anaesthetic properties. It is possible to safely breathe heavy gases such as xenon or sulfur hexafluoride as long as they include a 20% mixture of oxygen. The lungs mix the gases very effectively and rapidly so that the heavy gases are purged along with the oxygen and do not accumulate at the bottom of the lungs.[10] There is, however, a danger associated with any heavy gas in large quantities: it may sit invisibly in a container, and if a person enters a container filled with an odorless, colorless gas, they may find themselves breathing it unknowingly.[11]

English Word ~ Whinge

What does this word mean & how do you pronounce it?

To Whine or to Whinge?

Aw, Mr. Cheney, do I have to?

Dear Word Detective: Here in Australia we "whinge" where Americans "whine." "Whinge" is a fabulous word and many Americans with whom I have had contact have latched onto it. My Macquarie dictionary doesn't note it as slang and its use is very widespread in the land up over (who said south was down, north was up anyway?). Is it a derivation of "whine" and where do both words come from? An American friend, encountering "whinge" for the first time, defined it as a "whining binge," which is very creative and I wish it were true but alas I fear it is not. -- Sara Clarke, Australia.

Nope, sorry, although "whining binge" has a nice ring to it. "Whinge" (which rhymes with "hinge") has always been common in the U.K. and Australia, but it seems to have hired itself a North American press agent recently. It's showing up more and more in U.S. media, and I've received a number of questions about "whinge" in just the last month. Cynic that I am, I suspect that the increased visibility of "whinge" may be due to the inveterate Anglophilia of certain upper strata of U.S. society. It is, for instance, now routine to hear well-off young people in New York City pretentiously refer to their "flat," meaning their apartment. Personally, I find that sort of play-acting vaguely pathetic, but your mileage may vary.

In any case, "whinge" is basically the same word as our good old-fashioned "whine," meaning "to complain peevishly." Both whinge" and "whine" are ultimately from the Germanic "hwinan," meaning "to whine." The "ge" ending of "whinge" is evidence of its origin as the Scots and Northern English form of "whine," much as "clenge" and "ringe" were at one time the Northern forms of "cleanse" and "rinse."

"Whinge" is, for a word newly trendy in America at least, remarkably old. It comes directly from the Old English word "hwinsian," and first appeared in its modern English spelling in the early 18th century.


whinge  (hwnj, wnj)
intr.v. whinged, whing·ing, whing·es Chiefly British

To complain or protest, especially in an annoying or persistent manner.

[Dialectal alteration of Middle English whinsen, from Old English hwinsian.]

vb whinges, whingeing, whinged (intr)
1. to cry in a fretful way
2. to complain

Story ~ Baby Porcupines & The Coldest Winter Ever

They're cute when young 
but when their older, 
their needle-like quills 
are painful to touch. 
~ PGA, on Baby Porcupines, 2011Jan03,1308.

Story Of Porcupines & The Coldest Winter Ever

Note: I heard this story during a sermon on the Feast of the Holy Family and found the story at this Link: 

It was the coldest winter ever, and many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions even though they shared their heat with each other. 

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other to stop being wounded.

As they did this, they began to die... alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. This way they learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by the close relationship with their companion, but the most important part of it, was the heat that came from the others that enabled them to survive the coldest winter ever.

Dorothy Day ~ The Catholic Worker

She's on her way to sainthood... but her life didn't start out that way...

• Initially Dorothy Day lived a bohemian life ~ Bohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic or literary pursuits...
• She had with two common-law marriages ~ Common-law marriages are not solemnized...
• She had an abortion.
• In 1910 she supported sexual freedom BUT opposed sexual revolution of the 1960s after she became a Catholic... saying she had seen the ill-effects of a similar sexual revolution in the 1920s. 
• She was buried in Cemetery of the Resurrection on Staten Island, just a few blocks from the location of the beachside cottage where she first became interested in Catholicism. 
• She was proposed for sainthood by the Claretian Missionaries in 1983. 
• Pope John Paul II granted the Archdiocese of New York permission to open Day's "cause" for sainthood in March 2000, thereby officially making her a "Servant of God" in the eyes of the Catholic Church.

Here are some Quotes by Dorothy Day

Don't call me a saint. I don't want to be dismissed so easily.

Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.

I firmly believe that our salvation depends on the poor. 

Love casts out fear, but we have to get over the fear in order to get close enough to love them. 

I have long since come to believe that people never mean half of what they say, and that it is best to disregard their talk and judge only their actions. 

I believe that we must reach our brother, never toning down our fundamental oppositions, but meeting him when he asks to be met, with a reason for the faith that is in us, as well as with a loving sympathy for them as brothers.
