Happy Birthday Shirley

July 24, 2010

We play sensitive about our age as we get older. Our years, our lines, our scars are part of who we are. They should be a matter of comfort and pride and even our joy. Happiness eludes us when we feel embarrassed, guilty, or even shy about any part of who we are.

Aging gracefully is a matter of self-esteem and Shirley certainly know how to enjoy her life and become even more beautiful.

Rio de Janeiro visit

June 19, 2010

A marvelously complex and active city. The beaches are excellent, the entertainment endless, and the people are friendly. Every day appears to be a holiday.

Favorite beaches:
Copacabana Beach, Ipanema Beach, Leblon Beach. Sidewalk restaurants opposite the beaches. There are many cultural sites pertinent to the history of the country, of samba, and related music.

What’s really great:
The people are what makes Rio special. They are so happy and out-going and they know how to party. Especially on the weekends they spill out of the local bars and take over the streets stopping the traffic all together

Sugar Loaf Mountain, this is actually 2 cable car rides and cost 45 reals. Corcovado with Christ the Redeemer – check out the weather on the mountain before doing this trip. It may be clear when you set out but the clouds come in very quickly and you may not see a thing.

Don’t be suckered in to take a tour. They are a rip off!
You can get anywhere in the city for less than 1EURO on the local buses and then pay your own way in. Not only on the tour bus do they take forever picking up and dropping passengers off they also have to give the tour in at least 3 (heavily accented)and hard to understand languages. Avoid it at all costs.

Pubs and stand-up drink stands are located on most of the off-streets.

A Polish man and a divorce lawyer in America

June 16, 2010

A Polish man moved to the USA and married an American girl. Although his English was far from perfect, they got along very well.

One day:
The Polish guy rushed into a lawyer’s office and asked him if he could arrange a divorce for him. The lawyer said that getting a divorce would depend on the circumstances, and asked him the following questions:

‘Do you have you any grounds?’
‘Yes, an acre and half, and a nice little home.’

‘No, I mean what is the foundation of this case?’
‘It made of concrete.’

‘I don’t think you understand. Does either of you have a real grudge?’
‘No, we have carport, and not need one.’

‘I mean. What are your relations like?’
‘All my relations are still in Poland.’

‘Is there any infidelity in your marriage?’
‘We have hi-fidelity stereo, and good DVD player!’

‘Does your wife beat you up?’
‘No, I always up before her.’

‘Why do you want this divorce?’
‘She is going to kill me!’

‘What makes you think that?’
‘I got proof!’

‘What kind of proof?’
‘She is going to poison me!
She buy a bottle at drugstore, and put on shelf in bathroom.
I can read, and it say:
”Polish remover….. ….”

Amniotic Fluid Leaking During Pregnancy

June 15, 2010

Amniotic fluid is the liquid that surrounds the fetus during pregnancy. It protects the unborn child as well as helps to provide the essential nutrients it needs while it is inside of the mother. The amniotic fluid will start producing around the fetus after two weeks of pregnancy and will continue to grow until the baby is born. Doctors will measure the amount of fluid that the amniotic sac contains with an ultrasound and by using a tape measure across the mother’s stomach.

Amniotic sac, which holds the fluid and baby, will usually rupture when the pregnancy is at 40 weeks. There are circumstances that may lead to a slight leakage of these fluids before the pregnancy has come to term. These leaks can be caused by small tears in the amniotic sac. These do happen and will tend to heal themselves over time. There are other times when this fluid will leak and it can lead to serious problems for the unborn child as well as for the mother. Infection can easily start to grow when it is left exposed, the tear in the amniotic sac allows bacteria and other toxins to enter into the sac, and this can cause serious health issues for the unborn child. Heavy leaking of the fluids can also lead a pregnancy into pre-term labor. Since pregnancies cause women to have weakened bladders it is easy for the mother to be to think amniotic fluids are leaking when it is actually urine. If a leak is suspected the pregnant mother should speak with their physician right away. The women’s health care professional will often have the pregnant mother wear pads or even panty liners during this time. There are new panty liners on the market today that will detect what type of fluid is actually leaking. (Home tests for detecting vaginal infections, amniotic fluid leakage)

These women should also consult their doctor if there is color to the leak. Brown, green or pink tinged discharge can be a cause for alarm.

Low amounts of amniotic fluid can pose other threats to the mother and baby. If the fluid does not replenish itself correctly the baby will not develop correctly. The fluids that surround the baby flow through its body and back out through their urine. When the fluid is inside of the fetus it helps the lungs and other organs to grow and develop correctly. Low levels of fluid can also cause the unborn fetus to develop abnormal shortening of muscle tissue in the limbs as well as clubbing of the feet and hands.

State of mind – Men Vs. Women

May 4, 2010

A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that, in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

‘House’ for instance, is feminine: ‘la casa.’
‘Pencil,’ however, is masculine: ‘el lapiz.’

So, a student asked, ‘What gender is ‘computer’?’

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether ‘computer’ should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men’s group decided that ‘computer’ should definitely be of the feminine gender (‘la Computadora’), because:

1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your income on accessories for it.

The women’s group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine (‘el computador’), because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have found a better model.

Send this to all the smart women you know…and all the men that have a good sense of humor
