fine life advice…


fine advice in these words,  even if  you’re not superstitious.

for good  luck from the Anthony  Robbins  organization.

This is true, even if  you are not  superstitious, agnostic, or  otherwise faith  impaired.

ONE.  Give   people more than they expect and do it   cheerfully.  

TWO.   Marry  a man/woman  you love to talk to. As you get  older,  their conversational skills will be as   important as any other.  

THREE.  Don’t   believe all you hear, spend all you have  or  sleep all you want.  

FOUR.   When  you say, ‘I love  you,’ mean   it.  

FIVE.   When  you say, ‘I’m  sorry,’ look the person in the  eye.  

SIX.  Be   engaged at least six months before you get   married.  

SEVEN.  Believe   in love at first   sight.

EIGHT.  Never   laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t  have  dreams don’t have much.  

NINE…   Love  deeply and  passionately. You might get hurt but  it’s  the only way to live life completely.  

TEN..   In  disagreements,  fight fairly. No name calling.  

ELEVEN.   Don’t   judge people by their   relatives.

TWELVE.   Talk  slowly but think   quickly.

THIRTEEN.  When  someone asks  you a question you don’t want to  answer,  smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to  know?’  

FOURTEEN.   Remember  that great  love and great achievements involve  great  risk.

FIFTEEN.   Say  ‘bless you’ when  you hear someone sneeze.  

SIXTEEN.   When  you lose, don’t  lose the   lesson.  

SEVENTEEN.   Remember  the three  R’s: Respect for self; Respect for  others;  and Responsibility for all your actions.  

EIGHTEEN.   Don’t  let a little  dispute injure a great friendship.  

NINETEEN.   When  you realize you’ve  made a mistake, take  immediate steps to  correct   it.  

TWENTY.  Smile when picking up the phone.  The  caller will hear it in your  voice  

TWENTY-   ONE. Spend  some time  alone.


How did the human race appear?-funny…


A little girl asked her mother, “How did the human race appear?”
The mother answered, “God made Adam and Eve and they had children,
and so was all mankind made..”


Two days later the girl asked her father the same question.. The father answered,
“Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.”


The confused girl returned to her mother and said, ” Mum , how is it possible that
you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys ?”

The mother answered, “Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my
              side of the family and your father told you about his.”

Some Wonders From Around The World


Beautiful New Zealand.. !!

Enchanted River is found in Philippines. It is called “enchanted” because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people, including scuba divers, have tried reaching for the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit. Moreover, locals share that NOBODY has been successful in catching the fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear. They say its bluish color is a result of its depth and the water clarity changes throughout the day. At around 12:00 pm, the water becomes clearer and even more majestic.

Christ the Redeemer Statue overlooking the whole of Rio was pretty special. You could see it from everywhere you went. I also have to say that the majority of the people who lived there, including the ‘natives’ (especially in the favelas) knew exactly who it was and respected it and what it stands for.

The Astonishing Annual Red Crab Migration
Each year millions of bright red land crabs leave their burrow homes on Australia’s Christmas Island and start a long, laborious trek toward the sea. They descend cliffs, climb banks and maneuver around obstacles to reach the shoreline and lay their eggs, eventually returning to the island’s central plateau with their offspring in tow. The synchronized migration resembles a crimson-colored river undulating across the island and can last up to 18 days. The event typically takes place in November or December (the crabs will only move when it’s raining) and coincides with the turning of high tide and the arrival of the waning moon.

some good life tips-laughing


Make sure you read the six truths of life at the end.

Be well, stay safe, and SMILE (it makes your face
feel good), and if smiles are good, laughs are even better.
It’s been said, “You don’t stop laughing when you die,
you die when you stop laughing!!”

Here is the plan: send this flower to four people that you want to have a good day. I picked you. Please consider passing this to four people you want to have a good day. This is SO positive and there is nothing attached. Let’s continue to send this along. Have a bright sunny day! (I know I picked more than four, and you can, too.)

Six Truths in Life

1. You cannot stick your tongue out and look up at the ceiling at the same time, a physical impossibility.

2. All idiots, after reading #1 will try it.

3. And discover #1 is a lie.

4. You are smiling now because you are an idiot.

5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.

6. There is still a stupid smile on your face.

I sincerely apologize about this but I’m an idiot and I needed company. Now put a smile on someone’s face today.

dog-cat Life….in 6 pictures



Look carefully in each picture for the cat as it
makes its way down from the roof to the dog.
Then, check the explanation at the end.
The story behind these pictures is this:
Every day — at the same time — she waits for him.
Sometimes she barks to call him.
He comes; they rub and greet each other and they go for a walk.
They have done this for 5 years
and no, they don’t belong to the same owners.

The owners didn’t know until neighbors, seeing them together so frequently, commented to the cat’s owner, who then followed the dog home and discovered it was a distance away, not in a house close by or next door.

How it started no one knows.
Wouldn’t it be great to have friends like this? . . . . always there, no words needed . . . . they just intuitively recognize the value of each other in their lives and act accordingly.
             Live, Laugh, Love
Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is.
The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.
LOVE~~the most powerful force in the world.
A wise person once said …
There comes a time in life when you walk away from all the drama and the people who create it.
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good.
So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t.
Life is too short to be anything but happy.
Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living

Great photos to enjoy !!!

Unbelievable Camouflage by Satanic leaf-tailed gecko.
The satanic leaf-tailed gecko from Madagascar is a master of disguise, but that’s not the only way it avoids an attack from predators. It flattens its body against the leaves to reduce its shadow, and opens its jaws wide to show an intimidating, bright red mouth. Like many other lizards, it can also shed its own tail to distract a predator.

Zanjeer, The Golden Labrador Who Saved Thousands Of Lives.

In March 1993, a series of 12 bombs went off across Mumbai , India . The serial blasts left 257 dead and 713 injured. But in the aftermath, an unlikely hero emerged. According to Reuters, a golden Labrador named Zanjeer worked with the bomb squad and saved thousands of lives by detecting “more than 3,329 kgs of the explosive RDX, 600 detona…tors, 249 hand grenades and 6406 rounds of live ammunition.” He helped avert three more bombs in the days following the blasts.

The dog died of bone cancer in 2000. He was eight years old.

In the photo, a senior police officer lays a wreath of flowers on Zanjeer as he was buried with full police honors at a widely-attended ceremony.

This Is What An Underwater Gunshot Looks Like


Master Card Wedding



You got to love this guy… This is a true story about a recent   wedding that took place at Clemson University . It was in the local newspaper and even Jay Leno mentioned it.

It was a huge wedding with about 300 guests.

After the wedding, at the reception, the groom got up on stage with a

microphone to talk to the crowd.  He said he wanted to thank everyone

for coming, many from long distances, to support them at their





He especially wanted to thank the bride’s and his family and to

thank his new father-in-law for providing such a lavish reception.

As a token of his deep appreciation he said he wanted to give everyone a special gift just from him.

So taped to the bottom of everyone’s chair, including the wedding party was an envelope.

He said this was his gift to everyone, and asked them to open their envelope.







Inside each manila envelope was an 8×10 glossy of his bride having sex with

the best man.

The groom had gotten suspicious of them weeks earlier and had hired a

private detective to tail them.

After just standing there, just watching the guests’ reactions for a

couple of minutes, he turned to the best man and said, ‘F—you!’ Then

he turned to his bride and said, ‘F— you!’

Then he turned to the dumbfounded crowd and said, ‘I’m outta here.’

He had the marriage annulled first thing in the morning.

While most people would have canceled the wedding immediately after

finding out about the affair, this guy goes through with the charade, as if

nothing were wrong.

His revenge–making the bride’s parents pay over $32,000 for

a 300-guest wedding and reception, and best of all, trashing

the bride’s and best man’s reputations in front of 300 friends and

family members.

This guy has balls the size of church bells.

‘Life isn’t like a bowl of cherries or peaches, it’s more like a

jar of Jalapenos–what you do today, might burn your rear






1919 Photo

If you were around in 1919 and

Came upon the following poster… 

I mean, seriously, wouldn’t you

just keep drinking?

natural motivation


John is the kind of guy you love to hate.   He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say.  When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, ‘If I were any better, I would be twins!’
He was a natural motivator.

If an employee was having a bad day, John was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up and asked him, ‘I don’t get it!’

‘You can’t be a positive person all of the time.  How do you do it?’He replied, ‘Each morning I wake up and say to myself, you have two choices today.  You can choose to be in a good mood or…you can choose to be in a bad mood

I choose to be in a good mood.’

Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or…I can choose to learn from it.  I choose to learn from it.

Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or…I can point out the positive side of life.  I choose the positive side of life..

‘Yeah, right, it’s not that easy,’ I protested.

‘Yes, it is,’ he said.  ‘Life is all about choices.  When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice.  You choose how you react to situations.  You choose how people affect your mood.

You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood.  The bottom line:  It’s your choice how you live your life.’

I reflected on what he said..  Soon hereafter, I left the Tower Industry to start my own business.  We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.

Several years later, I heard that he was involved in a serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications tower.

After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, he was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back.

I saw him about six months after the accident.

When I asked him how he was, he replied, ‘If I were any better, I’d be twins…Wanna see my scars?’

I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place.

‘The first thing that went through my mind was the well-being of my soon-to-be born daughter,’ he replied.  ‘Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices:  I could choose to live or….I could choose to die.  I chose to live.’

‘Weren’t you scared?  Did you lose consciousness?’  I asked.

He continued, ‘…the paramedics were great.

They kept telling me I was going to be fine.  But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared.  In their eyes, I read ‘he’s a dead man’.  I knew I needed to take action.’

‘What did you do?’ I asked.

‘Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me,’ said John.  ‘She asked if I was allergic to anything ‘Yes, I replied.’  The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply.  I took a deep breath and yelled, ‘Gravity”

Over their laughter, I told them, ‘I am choosing to live..  Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.’

He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude….I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully.

 Attitude, after all, is everything.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.’  Matthew 6:34
