Pinoy Haircut

There was this good old barber in a city in the United States.
One day a florist went to him for a haircut. After the cut, he wanted to
pay the barber but the barber replied, "I don't accept money from you.
I'm doing community service." The florist was happy and left the

The next morning when the barber opened his shop, there was a "thank
you" card and a dozen roses waiting at his door.

The following day, a policeman went for a haircut and he also wanted to
pay the barber after the cut. But the barber replied, "I don't accept
money from you. I'm doing community service."
The cop was happy and left the barbershop.

The next morning when the barber opened his shop, there is a "thank you"
card and a dozen freshly baked donuts waiting at his door.

On the third day, a Filipino software engineer went for a haircut. He
also wanted to pay the barber. But the barber also replied," I'm sorry.
I don't accept money from you. I'm doing community service." The
Filipino software engineer was happy and left.

The following morning when the barber opened his shop, he had a big
surprise! Guess what he found!

* * * * Can you guess?....

* * * * Do you know the answer yet?....

* * * * Come on, think like a Filipino....

* * * * O, sirit ka na ba?

There were a dozen FILIPINOS waiting for free haircuts ! ! ! ! ! !

A guy went to his travel agent and tried to book a two-week cruise for himself and his lady friend. The travel agent said that all the ships were booked up and reservations were very tight at that moment, but that he would see what he could do.

A couple of days later, the travel agent phoned and said he could get them onto a three-day cruise. The guy was disappointed that it was such a short cruise, but booked it . And went to the drugstore to buy three Dramamines and three condoms.

The next day, the agent called back and reported that he now could book a five-day cruise. The guy said, "Great, I'll take it!"! And returned to the same pharmacy to buy two more Dramamines and two more condoms.

The following day, the travel agent called yet again, and said he was delighted that he could offer them bookings on an eight-day cruise. The guy was elated and, and went back to the drugstore. He asked for three more Dramamine and three more condoms.
The pharmacist looked sympathetically at him and said, "Look, I'm not trying to pry... But, if it makes you sick...Why do
you keep doing it?

Carlos, a 'young' Filipino tourist on his first visit to London,
located the red light district and enters a large brothel. The madam
asks him to be seated and sends over a young lady to entertain the client. They sit and talk, frolic a little, giggle a bit, drink a bit, and she sits on his lap. He whispers in her ear and she gasps and runs away!

Seeing this, the madam sends over a more experienced lady to entertain the gentleman. They sit and talk, frolic a little, giggle a bit, drink a bit, and she sits on his lap. He whispers in her ear and she screams, "No!" and walks away quickly.

The madam is surprised that this ordinary-looking man has asked for something so outrageous that her two girls will have nothing to do with it. She decides that only her most experienced lady, Lola, will do.
Lola looks A bit tired, but she has never said no and it doesn't seem likely that anything would surprise her. So the madam sends her over to Carlos. They sit and talk, frolic a little, giggle a bit, drink a bit, and she sits on his lap. He whispers in her ear and she screams, "NO WAY, BUDDY!", smacks him as hard as she can, and literally runs away too!

Madam is by now absolutely intrigued, having seen nothing like this in all her years of operating a brothel. She hasn't done the bedroom work herself for a long time, but she did it for many years before she got into management. She's sure she has said yes at one time or another to everything a man could possibly ask for.

The challenge is irresistible. She just has to find out what this man wants that has made her girls so angry. And she sees a chance she can't pass up to show off to her employees how good she was at what they do.

So she goes over to Carlos and says that she's the best in the house and she, herself, is available. She sits and talks with him. They frolic a bit,giggle a bit, drink a little, and she sits in his lap. And then Carlos leans forward and whispers in her ear, ............................

THE GREATEST ADVICE - The Purpose Driven Life

Don't date because you are desperate.
Don't marry because you are miserable.
Don't have kids because you think your genes are superior.
Don't philander because you think you are irresistible.

Don't associate with people you can't trust.
Don't cheat. Don't lie. Don't pretend.
Don't dictate because you are smarter.
Don't demand because you are stronger.

Don't sleep around because you think you are old enough & know better.
Don't hurt your kids because loving them is harder.
Don't sell yourself, your family, or your ideals.
Don't stagnate!

Don't regress.
Don't live in the past. Time can't bring anything or anyone back.
Don't put your life on hold for possibly Mr. Right.
Don't throw your life away on absolutely Mr. Wrong because your biological clock is ticking.

Learn a new skill.
Find a new friend.
Start a new career.
Sometimes, there is no race to be won, only a price to be paid for some of life's more hasty decisions.

To terminate your loneliness, reach out to the homeless.
To feed your nurturing instincts, care for the needy.
To fulfill your parenting fantasies, get a puppy.
Don't bring another life into this world for all the wrong reasons.

To make yourself happy, pursue your passions & be the best of what you can be.
Simplify your life. Take away the clutter.
Get rid of destructive elements: abusive friends, nasty habits, and dangerous liaisons.
Don't abandon your responsibilities but don't overdose on duty.

Don't live life recklessly without thought and feeling for your family.
Be true to yourself.
Don't commit when you are not ready.
Don't keep others waiting needlessly.

Go on that trip. Don't postpone it.
Say those words. Don't let the moment pass.
Do what you have to, even at society's scorn.

Write poetry.
Love Deeply.
Walk barefoot.
Dance with wild abandon.
Cry at the movies.

Take care of yourself. Don't wait for someone to take care of you.
You light up your life.
You drive yourself to your destination.
No one completes you - except YOU.

It isn't true that life does not get easier with age.
It only gets more challenging.
Don't be afraid. Don't lose your capacity to love.
Pursue your passions.

Live your dreams.
Don't lose faith in God.
Don't grow old. Just grow YOU!

When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back.
Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give to someone is your time.
Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is T-I-M-E because the essence of love is not what we think or do or provide for others, but how much we give of ourselves.
God is good all the time!

another oldie...

A gentleman asked a waiter to take a bottle of Merlot to an
attractive woman he spotted dining alone. The waiter took the Merlot to the woman and said, "This is from the gentleman seated over there," indicating the sender. She regarded the wine coolly for a second, not looking at the man, and decided to send a reply note to the man. The waiter, who was lingering for a response, took the note from her and conveyed it to the gentleman.

The note read:

"For me to accept this bottle, you need to have a Mercedes in your
garage, a million dollars in the bank, and 7 inches in your pants."

After reading the note, the man decided to compose one of his own
in return.
He folded the note, handed it to the waiter and instructed him to
return this to the woman.

It read:

"For your information, I have a Ferrari Maranello, a BMW Z8, a
Mercedes CL600 and a Porsche Turbo in my garage. There is over twenty
million dollars in my bank account. But, not even for a woman as beautiful as you, would I cut three inches off. Just send the bottle back."

Thoughts to guide us by
By Elvie Punzalan-Estavillo
Tuesday, July 3, 2007
As we traverse the highway of life, unavoidably, we encounter twists and turns, humps and bumps. The ride sometimes is dizzingly fast, at other times grindingly slow. Even halting at times!

Take cover in our faith on the Almighty God — our infinite source of strength — when the ride is bumpy and gruelling.

And to lighten our load and ease our travel, spice it up by lots and lots of laughter. For laughter does us good like instant medicine — free and the best there is! It is an-easy-does-it therapy that can rev up our bodies, lift and sparkle our spirits, and buoy our hopes.

A light, happy heart prolongs life, and makes every day a great, happy day — for us and to people around us . . .

Peace and abundance to us all!!!

Subject: I am a Father

A little boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and
noticed he had his collar on backwards. The little boy asked why he
wore his collar backwards. The man, who was a priest, said. " I am a
Father." The little boy replied. "My Daddy doesn't wear his collar like
that." The priest looked up from his book and answered. "I am the
Father of many." The boy said. "My Dad has 4 boys, 4 girls and two
grandchildren and he doesn't wear his collar that way! The priest,
getting impatient, said. "I am the Father of hundreds" and went back to
reading his book.
The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and "Maybe you should wear a condom and your pants backwards instead
of your collar

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to Australia and her Queen at a special meeting with Prime Minister John Howard, he and his Ministers made it clear that extremists would face a crackdown. Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did not accept that Australia was a secular state, and its laws were made by parliament. "If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic s tate, then Australia is not for you", he said on National Television.

"I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing people in Australia : one the Australian law and another Islamic law, that is false. If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a better option", Costello said.

Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave, he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to the other country. Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off. Basically people who don't want to be Australians, and who don't want to live by Australian values and understand them, well then, they can basically clear off", he said.

Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques.

Quote: "IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians."

"However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the 'politically correct' crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia . However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand. This idea of Australia being a multi-cultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. And as Australians, we have our own culture, our own socie ty, our own language and our own lifestyle."

"This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom"

"We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society .. Learn the language!"

"Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture."

"We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us."

"If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like "A Fair Go", then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. By all means, keep your culture, but do not force it on others.

"This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'."

"If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted."

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, American citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths !

By Bo Sanchez

We live in a pathologically dissatisfied world. And I'm going to tell
you why. Because we love to compare. Go around the world and discover
that people aren't happy with their bodies.

Filipinos want to be fair-complexioned like Westerners, and so buy
bleaching stuff. Westerners want to own bronzed bodies like ours, and so
purchase tanning lotions.

Those with moles have them removed, while those who don't strategically
implant beauty spots.

Some people want to shed a few pounds to look like Ally McBeal, while
others want to gain some baby fat to look like Drew Barrymore.

When are we ever going to stop and simply be happy with how we look?
We live in a sick world. I tell you. And that sickness is
comparisonitis. Take a look at wealth. When we drive our old Toyota, it
really suits us fine. We feel blessed in fact when the rain pours
outside and we feel snug and cozy on its faded upholstered seats.

But the moment we see our own officemate (or neighbor, or buddy, or
cousin, or brother) drive his sleek sky-blue, four-door,
four-wheel-drive Rav4, we automatically feel like third class children
of God.
Next time we drive our bumpy, noisy, rusted, dilapidated Toyota (notice
how all the defects come out all of a sudden?), we feel deprived,
dispossessed, pariah, debased, and only a little higher than the insects
of the earth.

Listen carefully. Bill Gates' total assets are worth $60 billion.
That's more than the GNP of some small countries. Tiger Woods earns $80
million simply by smiling on TV in a Nike shirt. And the stars of the
sitcom Friends are paid $50,000 per episode! My point? No matter how
hard you work, there'll still be some people who will be richer than you

And there'll be some people who will be more beautiful, have more sex
appeal, have more boyfriends/girlfrie nds, and have more problems.
Try it for once. Stop looking around. Don't compare!

Don't compare her nose with your nose.
Don't compare his wife with your wife.
Don't compare his salary with your salary.
Don't compare her breast size with your breast size.
Don't compare her kid's report card with your kid's report card.
Don't compare his prayer group with your prayer group.
Don't compare her/his cellulite deposits with your cellulite deposits.

Stop comparing and start living and you'll be happier with your life.

This is crucial: The most difficult thing in the world is to be who you
are not. Pretending and trying to be someone else is the official
pastime of the human race. (I don't think dogs and cats and cows and
horses have this problem).

And the easiest thing in the world is to be yourself.
Be happy. Live!

There must be a reason why God made you tall or short or fat or thin or
bumpy all over.

Love who you are!

Subject: Visa Application Ni Lolo
Date: Mon, 2 Jul 2007 12:58:25 +0800

This is a true story taken from one of the most read newspaper in the Philippines.

A 70-year old 'lolo' from the province was accompanied by a grandson to the US Embassy in Manila for his VISA interview.
The lolo spoke not a word of English so the grandson translated for him. The Consul told the young man to ask his grandfather why he wanted to go to the States.

"Bakit daw ho ninyo gustong pumunta sa Amerika?" The grandson translated.

"Sabihin mo gusto kong makita yung mga anak ko doon."

"He said he wants to see his children there."

Fair enough, that's what the lolo's application indicated.

The Consul had another question. "Ask him why does he have to go there? Why can't his children just come and visit him here?"

The grandson translated this in Tagalog.

Lolo replied: "Sabihin mo kasi dito pinanganak yung mga anak ko.
Nakita na nila ang Pilipinas. Gusto ko namang makita ang Amerika bago ako mamatay."

(Translation: "Tell him, my children were born here. They've seen the
Philippines already. I just want to see America before I die.")

The HEARTLESS Consul was unimpressed as he declared, devoid of any emotion, that he was rejecting the visa application "because the applicant was unable to speak any word of English."

"Reject daw yung visa ninyo kasi hindi daw kayo marunong mag-Ingles."

The lolo was equally unimpressed. "Sabihin mo ito sa kanya at huwag na huwag mong papalitan ang sasabihin ko:

"Putang ina niya, bakit siya nandidito eh hindi naman siya marunong mag-Tagalog!?"

Translated, "He said: You son of a bitch, how come you are here... you do not know how to speak in Tagalog!?"

Taken aback, sense of humor still intact, the consul relented and approved lolo's visa application in pronto.

(Taken from The Philippine Star (newspaper), written by Boo Chanco)

Subject: Judgement Granted

One evening after attending the theater, two gentlemen were walking down the street when they observed a well-dressed, attractive young lady walking just ahead of them. One turned to the other and said, "I'd give fifty bucks to spend the night with that woman." To their surprise, the woman turned and said, "I'll take you up on that." She had a neat appearance and a pleasant voice, so after bidding his friend goodnight the man accompanied the lady to her apartment, where they immediately went to bed.

The following morning the man presented her with twenty-five dollars as he prepared to leave. She demanded the rest of the money, stating, "If you don't give me the other twenty-five I'll sue for it." He laughed, saying, "I'd like to see you get it on these grounds."

The next day he was surprised when served with a summons ordering his presence in court as defendant, He hurried to his lawyer and explained the details of the case. His lawyer said, "She can't possibly get a judgment against you on such grounds, but it will be interesting to see how her case will be presented."

After the usual preliminaries, the lady's lawyer addressed the court as follows:
"Your Honor, my client is the owner of a piece of property, a garden spot surrounded by a profuse growth of shrubbery, which property she agreed to rent to the defendant for a specified length of time for the sum of fifty dollars. The defendant took possession of the property, used it extensively for the purpose for which it was rented, but upon evacuating the premises he paid only twenty-five dollars. The rent is not excessive since it was restricted property, and we ask judgment to be granted against the defendant to assure payment of the balance."

The defendant's lawyer was impressed and amused at the way the case had been presented. His defense was therefore somewhat altered from what he had planned. "Your Honor, my client agrees the young lady has a fine piece of property, for a degree of pleasure was derived from the transaction. However, my client found a well on the property, around which he placed his own stones, sunk a shaft and erected a pump, all labor being personally performed by him. We claim these improvements to the property are sufficient to offset the unpaid balance, and that the plaintiff was adequately compensated for the rental of said property. We therefore ask that the judgment not be granted.

The young lady's lawyer's comeback was this: "Your Honor, my client agrees that the defendant did find a well on the property, and he did make improvements such as described by my opponent; however, had the defendant not known the well existed, he would never have rented the property; also, on evacuating the premises, the defendant moved the stones, pulled out the shaft and took the pump with him. In so doing he not only dragged his equipment through the shrubbery, but left the hole much larger than it was prior to his occupancy, making it accessible to little children. We therefore ask judgment be granted."

The Judge ruled in favor of the plaintiff.

Don't eat chicken sandwiches, no matter what.....

A little boy and a little girl attended the same school and became friends.

they both brought chicken sandwiches every day!

This went on all through the fourth and fifth grades, until one day he
noticed that her sandwich wasn't a chicken sandwich.

He said, "Hey, how come you're not eating chicken, don't you like it anymore?"
She said "I love it but I have to stop eating it."

"Why?" he asked.

She pointed to her lap and said

"Cause I'm starting to grow little feathers down there!"

"Let me see" he said.

"Okay" and she pulled up her skirt.
He looked and said, "That's right. You are!

Better not eat any more chicken."
He kept eating his chicken sandwiches until one day he brought peanut butter.

He said to the little girl, "I have to stop eating chicken sandwiches,

I'm starting to get feathers down there too!"

She asked if she could look, so he pulled down his pants for her.

She said "Oh, my God, it's too late for you!

Just in case you ever get these two environments mixed up, this should make things a little bit clearer.


You spend the majority of your time in a 10X10 cell
you spend the majority of your time in an 8X8 cubicle

You get three meals a day fully paid for
you get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it

You get time off for good behavior
you get more work for good behavior

The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you
you must often carry a security card and open all the doors for yourself

You can watch TV and play games
you could get fired for watching TV and playing games

You get your own toilet
you have to share the toilet with some people who pee on the seat

They allow your family and friends to visit
you aren't even supposed to speak to your family

All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required
you get to pay all your expenses to go to work, and they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners

You spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out
you spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars

You must deal with sadistic wardens
they are called managers

You can talk about Jesus, and even participate in Bible Studies
you'd better not talk about Jesus or bring a Bible if you want to keep your job!

Three contractors are bidding to fix the White House fence.

One from the Philippines, another from Mexico and an American.

They go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The American contractor takes out a tape measure and does some
measuring, then works some figures with a pencil.

"Well," he says. "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for
materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Mexican contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says,
"I can do $700: $300 for materials, $300 for

my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Filipino contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the
White House official and whispers: "$2,700."

The official, incredulous, says, " What? You didn't even measure like
the other guys! How did you come up with such a high

figure?" How do you expect me to consider your service with that bid?

"Easy," the Pinoy explains, "$1,000 for you, $1,000 for me and we hire

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better,
To paint a picture or write a letter,
Bake a cake or plant a seed,
Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there's not much time,
With rivers to swim and mountains to climb,
Music to hear and books to read,
Friends to cherish and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world's out there
With the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain.
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
Old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go and go you must,
You, yourself, will make more dust.

Last week, while traveling to Chicago on business, I noticed a Marine sergeant traveling with a folded flag, but did not put two and two to get her.

After we boarded our flight, I turned to the sergeant, who'd been invited to sit in First Class (across from me), and inquired if he was heading home .

No, he responded.

Heading out I asked?

No. I'm escorting a soldier home.

Going to pick him up?

No. He is with me right now. He was killed in Iraq , I'm taking him home to his family.

The realization of what he had been asked to do hit me like a punch to the gut. It was an honor for him. He told me that, although he didn't know the soldier, he had delivered the news of his passing to the soldier's family and felt as if he knew them after many conversations in so few days.

I turned back to him, extended my hand, and said, Thank you. Thank you for doing what you do so my family and I can do what we do.

Upon landing in Chicago the pilot stopped short of the gate and made the following announcement over the intercom.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to note that we have had the honor of having Sergeant Steeley of the United States Marine Corps join us on this flight. He is escorting a fallen comrade back home to his family. I ask that you please remain in your seats when we open the forward door to allow Sergeant Steeley to deplane and receive his fellow soldier. We will then turn off the seat belt sign."

Without a sound, all went as requested. I noticed the sergeant saluting the casket as it was brought off the plane, and his act ion made me realize that I am proud to be an American.

So here's a public Thank You to our military Men and Women for what you do so we can live the way we do.

Red Fridays.

Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday . The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be called the "silent majority." We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing.

Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply w ant to recognize that the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday -- and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that ... every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar, will wear something red.

By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once "silent" majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.

The first thing a sol dier says when asked "What can we do to make things better for you?" is. "We need your support and your prayers." Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear some thing red every Friday.

Subject: Fw: (Tanglad) Lemon Grass

Fresh lemon grass

While I was undergoing chemotherapy for ovarian cancer, my oncologist, Dr.
Cecilia Llave, suggested that I try tanglad (lemon grass) for a drink, a
tip she got from one of her patients.

That's what I have been doing the past three years. I don't know if tanglad
has something to do with it but so far I'm okay.

A few weeks ago, an article on the medicinal powers of tanglad went the
rounds of internet. There's no harm trying this. A bunch of tanglad is ten
centavos. Or you can plant it in your backyard for a steady supply.

The article is by Allison Kaplan Sommer:

"At first, Benny Zabidov, an Israeli agriculturalist
who grows greenhouses full of lush spices on a pastoral farm in Kfar
in the Sharon region, couldn't understand why so many cancer patients from
around the country were showing up on his doorstep asking for fresh lemon

"It turned out that their doctors had sent them.

"'They had been told to drink eight glasses of hot water with fresh
lemongrass steeped in it on the days that they went for their radiation and
chemotherapy treatments," Zabidov told ISRAEL21c. "And this is the place
go to in Israel for fresh lemon grass.'

"It all began when researchers at Ben Gurion University of the Negev
discovered last year that the lemon aroma in herbs like lemon grass kills
cancer cells in vitro, while leaving healthy cells unharmed.

"The research team was led by Dr. Rivka Ofir and Prof. Yakov
Weinstein, incumbent of the Albert Katz Chair in Cell-Differentiatio n and
Malignant Diseases, from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at

"Citral is the key component that gives the lemony aroma and taste in
several herbal plants such as lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus), melissa
(Melissa officinalis) and verbena (Verbena officinalis. )

"According to Ofir, the study found that citral causes cancer cells to
'commit suicide: using apoptosis, a mechanism called programmed cell death.

"A drink with as little as one gram of lemon grass contains enough citral
prompt the cancer cells to commit suicide in the test tube.

"The BGU investigators checked the influence of the citral on
cancerous cells by adding them to both cancerous cells and normal cells
were grown in a petri dish. The quantity added in the concentrate was
equivalent to the amount contained in a cup of regular tea using one gram
of lemon herbs in hot water. While the citral killed the cancerous cells,
the normal cells remained unharmed.

"The findings were published in the scientific journal Planta Medica, which
highlights research on alternative and herbal remedies. Shortly afterwards,
the discovery was featured in the popular Israeli press.

"Why does it work? Nobody knows for certain, but the BGU scientists have a

"'In each cell in our body, there is a genetic program which causes
programmed cell death. When something goes wrong, the cells divide with no
control and become cancer cells. In normal cells, when the cell discovers
that the
control system is not operating correctly - for example, when it recognizes
that a cell contains faulty genetic material following cell division - it
triggers cell death," explains Weinstein. "This research may explain
the medical benefit of these herbs.'

"The success of their research led them to the conclusion that herbs
containing citral may be consumed as a preventative measure against certain
cancerous cells.

"As they learned of the BGU findings in the press, many physicians in
began to believe that while the research certainly needed to be explored
further, in the meantime it would be advisable for their patients, who were
looking for any possible tool to fight their condition, to try to harness
the cancer-destroying properties of citral.

"That's why Zabidov's farm - the only major grower of fresh lemon grass in
Israel - has become a pilgrimage destination for these patients. Luckily,
they found themselves in sympathetic hands. Zabidov greets visitors with a
large kettle of aromatic lemon grass tea, a plate of cookies, and a
supportive attitude.

"'My father died of cancer, and my wife's sister died young because of
cancer," said Zabidov. "So I understand what they are dealing with. And I
may not know anything about medicine, but I'm a good listener. And so they
tell me about their expensive painful treatments and what they've been
through. I would never tell them to stop being treated,
but it's great that they are exploring alternatives and drinking the lemon
grass tea as well."

"Zabidov knew from a young age that agriculture was his calling. At age 14,
he enrolled in the Kfar Hayarok Agricultural high school. After his army
service, he joined an idealistic group which headed south, in the Arava
desert region, to found a new moshav (agricultural settlement) called

"'We were very successful; we raised fruits and vegetables, and," he notes
with a smile, "We raised some very nice children."

"On a trip to Europe in the mid-80s, he began to become interested in

Israel , at the time, was nothing like the trend-conscious
cuisine-oriented country it is today, and the only spices being grown
commercially were basics like parsley, dill, and coriander.

"Wandering in the Paris market, looking at the variety of herbs and spices,
Zabidov realized that there was a great export potential in this niche. He
brought samples back home with him, "which was technically illegal," he
with a guilty smile, to see how they would grow in his desert greenhouses.

Soon, he was growing basil, oregano, tarragon, chives, sage, marjoram and
melissa, and mint just to name a few.

"His business began to outgrow his desert facilities, and so he decided to
move north, settling in the moshav of Kfar Yedidya, an hour and a half
of Tel Aviv. He is now selling "several hundred kilos" of lemon grass per
week, and has signed with a distributor to package and put it in health

"Zabidov has taken it upon himself to learn more about the properties of
citral, and help his customers learn more, and has invited medical experts
to his farm to give lectures about how the citral works and why.

"He also felt a responsibility to know what to tell his customers about its
see. 'When I realized what was happening, I picked up the phone and called
Dr. Weinstein at Ben-Gurion University , because these people were asking
exactly the best way to consume the citral. He said to put the loose grass
in hot water, and drink
about eight glasses each day.'

"Zabidov is pleased by the findings, not simply because it means business
for his farm, but because it might influence his own health. "Even before
the news of its benefits were demonstrated, he and his family had been
drinking lemon grass in hot water for years, 'just because it tastes

"Well, you pay $10, and if you pass three tests, then you get all the money."
"What are the three tests?" asks the man
"Gotta pay first."
So the guy gives him the $10, and the bartender adds it to the jar.
"OK, here's what you have to do. First, you have to drink that whole bottle of pepper tequila -- the WHOLE thing at once -- and you can't make a face while doing it. Second, there's a pit bull chained up out back with a sore tooth. You have to remove the tooth with your bare hands. Third, there is a 90-year-old woman upstairs who's never had an orgasm in her life. You gotta make things right for her."
"Well, I know I've paid my $10," says the man, "but I'm not an idiot. No wonder you've collected so much money -- that's impossible!"
The new guy proceeds to drink several whiskeys, and eventually, he gets up his nerve. "Wherez zat teeqeelah?" he slurs.
He grabs the bottle of pepper tequila with both hands and downs it, gulp by gulp. Tears are streaming down his cheeks, but he doesn't make a face. Next, he staggers out back. Everyone in the bar hears a huge scuffle outside -- barking, yelping and growling, then silence.
Just when they think the man must be dead, he staggers back into the bar with his shirt ripped and gashes across his body.

When his turn came to begin the opening round, he confidently placed his golf ball on the tee, got his club into position, began his swing and, at that crucial moment, the caddy sneezed. Totally distracted, the pastor topped the ball miserably and it dribbled only a few feet from the tee.
He clenched his fist and bit his lip and glared at the embarrassed caddy, but he didn't speak. Whereupon, his opponent said to him, "Reverend, that is the most profane silence I have ever heard."

Below is a message from famous novelist ?? (YANG JIANG)written at age of 103, who passed away at age 105 on May 2016:
*Be Kind to Twilight Years*
Seasons after seasons, we are unknowingly approaching our twilight years.
From the first cry on coming to earth till the hair turns grey, the baggage of our journey through life is filled with bitterness and sweetness as well as ups and downs.
How far we walk on the path of our twilight years will depend on our physical, mental and spiritual condition.
Life's glory and splendor are behind us and we are now just going through the daily chores of keeping life going.
Once we yearned for a glamorous life, now we realize the most wonderful and romantic scenery in life are moments of tranquility.
Do not anxiously expect visits from our children. They have their own lives to live; they are like tops being spun continuously, sandwiched between young and old. Old is dusk, young is dawn. We are all concerned and have high expectations for the young: this is nature's law. It is a human race survival cycle and no one can defy it.
Please remember: our children are always more busy than us.
In life whether it is husband and wife or parents and children , no matter how harmonious and how close they are, each one is unique and an independent entity.
Therefore we need to learn to cope with loneliness by finding ways to console and cheer ourselves up when feeling lonely.
In reaching our golden age, we have our self esteem and graciousness just like the cycle of four seasons, each has its grace and beauty. Smile & enjoy each phase of life.
Twilight years is the beginning of goodness in life. It is easy going, peaceful, unhurried and joyful. We have to maintain peace, expect less, be more inclusive and forgiving, do not over react when receiving attention or when we are ignored. To stay or to go does not matter anymore. Keep smiling while moving ahead each day and be kind to ourselves.
Being honest and sincere will make friendships last.
Do not expect a return on what you have given to others. After all, making others happy is life's greatest achievement.

Through his portrayal in Plato's dialogues, Socrates has become renowned for his contribution to the field of ethics, and it is this Platonic Socrates who lends his name to the concepts of Socratic irony and the Socratic method, or elenchus. The latter remains a commonly used tool in a wide range of discussions, and is a type of pedagogy in which a series of questions is asked not only to draw individual answers, but also to encourage fundamental insight into the issue at hand. Plato's Socrates also made important and lasting contributions to the field of epistemology, and the influence of his ideas and approach remains a strong foundation for much western philosophy that followed.

Let us remember his wisdom by reading 24 famous quotes of his:

1) “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”

2) “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

3) “There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.”

4) “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think”

5) “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

6) “Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people.”

7) “By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.”

8) “He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.”

9) “If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.”

10) “Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.”

We should all love our bodies for what they are. However, when you encounter unexpected bodily features, they might take some time getting used to…
A nurse asks a patient to remove his clothing and put on a gown before getting examined by the doctor.
“In front of you?” he asked shyly.
The nurse said, “Don’t worry, I’ve seen plenty of naked bodies before.”
The patient replied, “Not one like mine. You’d die laughing at my naked body.”
“Of course I won’t laugh,” said the nurse to the patient, “I’m a professional. In over twenty years, I’ve never laughed at a patient.”
“Okay then,” said the patient, slowly undressing. First he unbuttoned his shirt, took off his pants, and with a sigh pulled down his underwear. In front of the nurse stood a huge naked male body with the smallest male organ that the nurse had ever seen in her life.
It was almost identical to a AAA battery in length and width.
Unable to control herself, the nurse tried to stop a giggle, but it just came out.
When she realized that she was laughing, she felt very bad for laughing at the patient’s private parts, and composed herself as well as she could.
“I am so sorry,” the nurse said, “I don’t know what came over me. On my honor as a nurse, I promise that it won’t happen again. Now tell me, what seems to be the problem?”
“It’s swollen,” the patient replied.
The nurse ran out of the room.

Steven and Sarah got married, and in the beginning everything was sunshine and rainbows. However, after a couple of months the novelty had worn off, and they had settled into their new everyday lives.
The young couple decided to save up a bit for a rainy day. They still wanted to do fun things though, but is there really any way to combine saving and leisure?
One day they came up with an idea – each time they had a play in bed, they would put a $20 bill into a piggy bank.
They put the plan in motion and followed that procedure for about a year. After that time, they decided that there was enough money for their dream vacation and broke open the piggy bank.
Steven looked at their savings and said, “Isn’t this strange? Each time we had a play, I put in $20, but there are tons of $50 bills and a few $100 bills in here.”
Sarah replied, “Well, not everybody is as cheap as you are!”

From Tony Halaguena
```1. ??No matter how beautiful and handsome you are just remember Baboons and Gorillas also attract tourists .
?Stop Boasting?
2.??No matter how big and strong you are, you will not carry yourself to your Grave .
?Be Humble?
3.??No matter how tall you are, you can never see tomorrow.
?Be Patient?
4.??No matter how Light Skinned you are, you will always need light in Darkness ?Take Caution ?
5.??No matter how Rich and many Cars you have, you will always Walk to Bed
?Be Contented?
Take Life Easy, Life is short.
Have you taken note of the CO-INCIDENCE OF LIFE:
1. CHURCH has 6 letters so does MOSQUE.
2. BIBLE has 5 letters so does QURAN.
3. LIFE has 4 letters so does DEAD.
4. HATE has 4 letters, so does LOVE.
5. ENEMIES has 7 letters, so does FRIENDS.
6. LYING has 5 letters, so does TRUTH.
7. HURT has 4 letters, so does HEAL.
8. NEGATIVE has 8 letters, so does POSITIVE.
9. FAILURE has 7 letters, so does SUCCESS.
10. BELOW has 5 letters, so does ABOVE.
11. CRY has 3 letters so does JOY.
12. ANGER has 5 letters, so does HAPPY.
13. RIGHT has 5 letters, so does WRONG.
14. RICH has 4 letters, so does POOR.
15. FAIL has 4 letters, so does PASS.
16. KNOWLEDGE has 9 letters, so does IGNORANCE.
Are they all by Coincidence? We should choose wisely, this means LIFE is like a double-edged sword.
If you think it is your alarm clock that woke you up this morning, try putting it beside a dead body and you will realise that it is the grace of God that woke you up.
If you are grateful to God, forward this to all your friends to inform them that it is JUST BY THE GRACE OF GOD that we are alive.
NOTE: If this has blessed you and you want to bless someone else, please share!```

A woman rushes to see her doctor, looking very much worried and all strung out.

She rattles off, "Doctor, take a look at me. When I woke up this morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw my hair all wiry and frazzled up, my skin was all wrinkled and pasty, my eyes were blood-shot and bugging out, and I had this corpse-like look on my face! What's wrong with me, Doctor?"

The doctor looks her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly says, "Well, I can tell you one thing . . . there ain't nothing wrong with your eyesight."

Bringing back
and her letter:
We' ve been friends for a long time ago.
We come from the same alma mother.
our paths crossed one time on another.
But it's only now that
I gave him a second look.
I realized that beauty
is in the eyes.
The pulpbits of my heart went fast,
really fast.
Cute pala siya.
And then, he came over with me.
He said,
"I hope you don't mine.
Can I get your number?"
Nag-worry ako.
What if he doesn't give it back?
He explained naman na
it's so we could keep intact daw.
Sabi ko,
"Connect me if I'm wrong,
but are you asking me ouch?"
"The!?!!??". ..
ang sarcastic na sagot nya.
Aba! The verb!
Parang siya pa ang galit!
Persona ingrata!!!
Ang kapal niya!
I cried buckles of tears.
Na-guilty yata siya.
Sabi niya, isipin mo na lang na
this is a blessing in the sky.
Irregardless daw of his feelings,
we should go ouch na rin.
Now, we're so in love.
Mute and epidemic na ang past.
Thanks God we swallowed our fried.
I'm 33 na and I'm running our time.
After 2 weeks,
he plopped the question.
"Will you marriage me?"
I'm in a state of shocked.
Kasi mantakin mo,
when it rains, it's four!
This is true good to be true.
So siyempre, I said yes.
Love is a many splendor.
Pero nung inaayos ko na
ang aming kasal,
everything swell to pieces.
Nag-di-dinner kami noon
nang biglang sa harap ng aming table,
may babaeng humirit ng,
"Well, well, well.
Look do we have here."
What the fuss!
The nerd ng babaeng yon!
She said they were still on.
So I told her,
whatever is that,
cut me some slacks!
I didn't want this to
get our hand kaya
I had to sip it in the bud.
She accused me of
steeling her boyfriend.
As is!!!
I don't want to portrait
the role of the other woman.
Gosh, tell me to the marines!
I told her,
mine you own business!"
Who would believe her anyway?
Dahil it's not my problem anymore
but her problem anymore,
tumigil na rin siya ng panggugulo.
Everything is coming up daisies.
I'm so happy.
Even my boyfriend
said liketwice.
He's so supportive. Sabi niya,
"Look at is this way.
She's our of our lives."
Kaya advise ko sa inyo
- take the risk.
You can never can tell.
Just burn the bridge
when you get there.
Life is shorts.
If you make a mistake,
we'll just pray for the
internal and external
repose of your soul.
I second emotion.

An elderly man bought a lottery ticket and gave it to his wife for safe-keeping. When the winning numbers were announced, she was the first to know that he had won two million dollars. But she decided not to tell him immediately since he had a bad heart and she feared he might drop dead from the shock.
Consequently, she asked their pastor to break the news to him, gently. When the pastor met with the big winner, he engaged him in small talk for a while.
Finally, as casually as possible, he asked, "What would you do if you were ever to win a couple of million dollars?"
Without hesitation the man replied, "I'd give half to the Church!" Whereupon, the pastor dropped dead.

The two jewels
A deeply religious Rabbi lived happily with his family, an admirable woman and two dear sons. One time, he had to be away from home for several days due to work. When he was away, a serious car accident killed his two boys.
Alone, the mother suffered in silence. But being a strong woman, backed up by her faith and trust in God, she endured the shock with dignity and bravery. However, she constantly worried how she was going to break this sad news to her husband. Even though he was a man of faith, he had already been admitted to the hospital for cardiac problems in the past and his wife feared that learning about the tragedy would kill him too.
On the eve of her husband’s arrival, she prayed earnestly and was given the grace of an answer.
On the following day, the Rabbi returned home, embraced his wife warmly and asked for their sons.
His wife told him not to worry about that, he should take a shower and rest.
Hours later, both of them sat down to have lunch. She asked him for details about his journey, he told her about everything he had experienced, spoke of God’s mercy, but asked about the boys again.
His wife, in a quiet embarrassed posture, answered her husband, “Leave them alone, we’ll worry about them later. First I want you to help me solve a problem I consider serious.”
Her husband, already worried, asked, “What happened? I noticed you are worn! Tell me everything that goes through your soul and I am sure we will solve any problem together, with the help of God.”
“While you were away, a friend of ours visited me and left two jewels of incalculable worth for us to save. Those are very precious jewels! I have never seen something so stunning! He is coming to get them back and I don’t want to give them back to him as I have already taken a liking to them. What do you say?”
“Well now, woman! I don’t understand you! Vanities have never appealed to you!”
“It is that I had never seen such jewels! I can’t accept the idea of losing them forever!”
And the Rabbi answered:
“No one loses what he doesn’t own. Keeping them would be like stealing! We are going to return them and I will help you get over them. We will do that together, today.”
“Very well, my dear, as you wish. The treasure will be returned. In truth, that has already been done. The precious jewels were our sons. God trusted us their guard and during your trip he came to get them. They are gone…”
The Rabbi embraced his wife, and together they shed many tears, but he had understood the message and from that day on they fought to overcome the loss together.

A man was driving down the highway late one night when his mini-van broke down. He turned on his flashers and tried to get someone's attention to help him. Eventually a Lamburgini Countash pulls up.

"Any chance I could get a lift into town?" said the mini-van driver.

"I can do better than that," the man driving the Countash replied. "I've got a V-12 under this hood, I can tow you to the nearest town, no problem. Just honk your horn and flash your lights if I start going too fast."

They head off down the road and eventually come to a stop light and up pulls a Farrari F40 with a V-10. The F40 began to rev it's engine to get the Countash to race. The Countash rev's its engine and the light turns green. They fly out of there, and about a half a mile down the road they pass a speed trap.

The officer there watches them pass and radios to base saying, "Base, you will not believe what I just saw. A F40 and a Countash were driving down the road doing about 120 with a Mini-van honking it's horn and flashing it's lights trying to pass them!"

"No problem," I told him. "Make it up the following week." That week came, and again he couldn't take the test due to another funeral.

"You'll have to take the test early next week," I insisted. "I can't keep postponing it."

"I'll take the test next week if no one dies," he told me.

By now I was suspicious. "How can you have so many people you know pass away in three weeks?" I asked.

"I have good news for you Howard," Doctor Kaine said, rummaging through a drawer full of sample medications.

"Here are some new sleeping pills that work like a dream. A few of these and your trouble will be over." "Great," said Howard, "I'll try anything. Let's give it a shot."

A few weeks later Howard, looking worse than ever. "Doc, your plan is no good. I'm more tired than before!" "I don't understand how that could be," said Dr. Kaine, shaking her head. "Those are the strongest pills on the market!"

"That may be true," answered Howard wearily, "but I'm still up all night chasing those dogs and when I finally catch one it's hard getting him to swallow the pill!"

An extremely wealthy man, reflecting on his business career and the life it brought him, said,

"If you go into the business world with the idea of satisfying all your needs and wants, your greed will erect for you not a soul-satisfying empire but a cage. And you become a prisoner of the monster you yourself created. And let me tell you, it's lonely!"

A very wealthy man invited his four married daughters to dinner. "I'm getting on in years," he said to them, "and I've lived a full life for which I'm grateful. But I continue to be disappointed that none of you has given me a grandchild. Tomorrow I'm adding a provision to my will. It will state that the first of you who presents me with a grandchild will receive an extra bonus of one million dollars.

Now, let us bow our heads and say Grace." Then he closed his eyes, bowed his head, and said a short prayer. When he opened his eyes and looked up -- everyone was gone!

..........We can relate with that situation. Money is a powerful incentive for just about all of us. And that's not all bad. Money has its uses; it can be a healthy incentive. But it is bad when it becomes an obsession.

Once upon a time a government surveyor brought his equipment to a farm, called on the farmer, and asked permission to go into one of the fields and take readings. The farmer objected, fearing that the survey was the first step toward construction of a highway through his land. "I will not give you permission to go into my fields," said the farmer.

Whereupon, the surveyor produced an official government document which authorized him to do the survey. "I have the authority," he said, "to enter any field in the entire country to take necessary readings."

Faced with such authority, the farmer opened the gate and allowed the surveyor to enter the field. The farmer then went to the far end of the field and opened another gate, through which one of his fiercest bulls came charging.

Seeing the bull, the surveyor dropped his equipment and began to run for his life. And he could hear the farmer triumphantly shouting after him,"Show him the paper, show him your authority."

A young man from Nebraska moves to Florida and goes to a big "everything under one roof" department store looking for a job.

The manager asks, "Do you have any sales experience?"

The kid replies, "Yeah, I was one of the best Bible salesman back in Omaha."

The boss liked the kid and gave him the job. "You can start tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and see how you did."
His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it.

After the store was locked up, the boss came down. "How many customers bought something from you today?� The kid responds, "One."

The boss says, "Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day.

How much was the sale for?"


"$101,237.65? Holy Mother Mary! What did you sell to him?"

"First, I sold him a small fish hook. Then, I sold him a medium fish hook. Then, I sold him a larger fish hook. Then, I sold him a new fishing rod. Then, I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down the coast. I told him he was going to need a boat, so we went down to the boat department, and I sold him a twin engine Boston Whaler. Then, he said he didn't think his car would pull it, so I took him down to the automobile department and sold him a 4x4 truck with all the bells and whistles."

"A guy came in here to buy a fish hook, and you sold him a boat and a truck?!"

"No, the guy came in here to buy feminine products for his wife, and I said, 'Dude, your weekend's shot. You should go fishing.'"

The second guy points to his Coke-bottle glasses and asks if the angel could cure his poor eyesight. The angel tosses the man's glasses into the lake. When they hit the water, the man's vision clears, and he can see everything distinctly.

The angel now turns to the third guy, who throws up his hands in fear. "Don't touch me!" he cries. "I'm on disability!"

Later, at the door, shaking hands with parishioners as they moved out, one man said, "Your sermon, Pastor, was simply wonderful - so invigorating and inspiring and refreshing."

The minister of course, broke out in a big smile, only to hear the man add, "Why I felt like a new man when I woke up!"

I was enjoying the second week of a two-week vacation the same way I had enjoyed the first week: by doing as little as possible.

I ignored my wife's not-so-subtle hints about completing certain jobs around the house, but I didn't realize how much this bothered her until the clothes dryer refused to work, the iron shorted, and the sewing machine motor burned out in the middle of a seam. The final straw came when she plugged in the vacuum cleaner and nothing happened.

She looked so stricken that I had to offer some consolation.

"That's okay, honey," I said. "You still have me."

She looked up at me with tears in her eyes. "Yes," she wailed, "but you don't work either!"

Two Difficult Things

Two things are very difficult to achieve!!!

1. To plant your ideas in someone else's head.
2. To put someone else's money in your own pocket.

The one who succeeds in the first one is called a TEACHER.
And the second is called a BUSINESSMAN.

The one who succeeds in both is called a WIFE.

The one who fails in both is called a HUSBAND!!!

Improvements in Hell

An electrical engineer died and ended up in Hell. He was not pleased with the level of comfort in Hell, and began to redesign and build improvements. After awhile, they had toilets that flush, air conditioning, and escalators. Everyone grew very fond of him.

One day God called to Satan to mock him, "So, how's it going down there in Hell?"

Satan replied, "Hey, things are great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."

God was surprised, "What? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake. He should never have gotten down there in the first place. Send him back up here."

"No way," replied Satan. "I like having an engineer, and I'm keeping him."

God threatened, "Send him back up here now or I'll sue!"

Satan laughed and answered, "Yeah, right. And just where are YOU going to get a lawyer?" we got them all here!

The Three Wise Men

I am wondering why they now call the three Magi, the three wise men who came to the site of Jesus' birth, as the Three Kings?

In our Religion class, we were told they were wise men, though they were also called "kings". But today, they are simply referred to as "kings".

The three men who came were just wise men. They were men who knew how to read the stars, astrologers at least. They determined that a great man will be born or was then born, one who will "King" of the world. So much was their certainty that they brought gifts of great worth, fit for a king.

Much would have been their surprise ,I could imagine, when the star led them to a baby in swaddling clothes. Also, the manger could not ba a king's castle. I could picture the three wise men conferring, asking each other whether they have read the star's message well. Could they have misread the alignment ofnthe stars? Could they have made a mistake in following the stars?

Yet their wisdom overcame their doubts and came to a certain decision. They have "followed the stars" and reviewed them constantly. They could not make a mistake. All of them "followed the same stars". This child is who the stars led them to. He will become the greatest King the world will know.

So, the three magi who read and followed the stars offered their expensive gifts to the child. These gifts were testament to their wisdom, the certain knowledge that this child named Joshua bar Joseph will be King, the greatest King.

When Mary was pregnant, her five-year-old son, Billy, was utterly amazed and a little bit disbelieving that his sister was growing in his mom's tummy.

So one day when the baby was especially active, she asked Billy to place his tiny hands on her tummy to feel the baby kick. But when he did, the baby was suddenly still.

"Oh, Billy, she must have decided to take a nap," shrugged his mother.

"A nap?" Billy marveled. "You mean there's a bed in there too?"

I just came off of jury duty. None of us was thrilled to spend hours and hours waiting around in a boring waiting room to see if we'd get selected. There was a rather smug college professor who REALLY didn't want to be there. When the judge was asking questions of the prospective jurors, concerning our abilities to judge fairly among the witnesses on both sides, the college professor said, "I don't believe in the justice system of this state, and I should be relieved."

I guess he thought he'd be sent home.

The judge was not impressed, to say the least, and said, "I find you in contempt of this court. I sentence you to spend one week in this courtroom. You will serve your sentence between the hours of 9:00 am and 4:30 pm and may go to have your lunch as the court stipulates from day to day. I think your opinion of our justice system will change. If you fail to carry out your sentence, you will spend one week in jail. You may now sit down, professor."

The rest of us were tempted to applaud, but thought better of it.
