Wonderful life, you could have!(for 5/21, Sat.)

文章Laura » 週四 5月 12, 2005 12:15 pm

Dear all,

Recently it was raining cats & dogs so I decided to shift the topic letting us discuss about
wonderful life instead of the blues.:twisted:

Sometimes we didn’t know the wonderful things are just surrounded us due to negligence.
Try to use our lovely eyes seek the good from people/environment and speak words with kindness,
hence start our topic loh! :D


Section I ~

Please peruse the article from below link where report has mentioned
“Martha Stewart goes to her farm”

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4320051.stm

You might know Ms. Martha Stewart had dealt in consultant、yoga、labor service … during
incarceration that news reports have said she's lost weight and been a model prisoner.
Q1: Please tell us a detailed description what kinds of positive actions you have done to
overcome the tribulation?


Stewart was US homemaking icon who plans for the future including TV show and creative
input to Martha Stewart Living.
Q2: Please share some of your hints, tips, techniques, or recipes can create
the wonderful life.

(refer to: Map Tablecloth from Martha Stewart Living as following website:
http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml ... navLevel=3
A large unfolded map can protect a tabletop from scratches and spills as it sends mealtime conversations down
unexpected pathways. We’ve used a world map, but hiker’s maps made from a tear-and drip-resistant type of
paper called Tyvek are a bit more permanent.)




- Take a Break -




Section II ~


Continuously, are you aware of the fantastic things in the world to be beautiful our life?
Therefore, we are going to hold one examination for testing the common sense about brands.

within 2 minute per question

These rules are too complex to understand! Oh, yeah? I think this examination is easy to
proceed actually.

Nowadays, YoYoforum is quite boisterous because “Mr. Congeniality” ~ WAYNEs thus catch this timing for advertisement. :twisted:
Oh, just joking! :) just joking! :D

Some additions:
* that’s a team work to answer for one brand name
* Don’t divulge the accurate name on reverse of paper when representative raise the picture

Hope I haven’t made more confusion to all of you ? :mrgreen:

martha stewart is sleek and trim,
look at the shape the felon is in.
she'll be dancing on the fashion floor
when she walks out that prison door.
she's no fat cat, no overweight hen:
she's the jenny craig of the federal pen.
she's coming out richer, and a whole lot slimmer,
after her prospects could not have looked dimmer.
it's quite a lesson for all of us
from the media mogul lazurus,
rising from the dead of an embarrassing fate,
she went in the slammer and lost some weight.
the dollar bill has been most forgiving
for the face of "martha stewart living":
her stock went up during her detention,
as investors embraced her with no hesitation;
since the day to prison she went
her stock's gone up two hundred percent.
she's the leader of a recognizable brand;
she writes the music for a fashionable band,
and she's about to re-join capitalism's race
just slightly encumbered by an electronic brace
that's hardly the picture of feminine refinement;
but such is the cost of home confinement.
and as the winds of her fortunes blow
she'll have her own television show,
and she'll make more dough than i'll ever earn,
she'll be an ex-con with money to burn.
leaner and meaner and smarter too,
she'll sell lots of stuff to me and you.
on america's stage she'll take a front seat;
martha stewart's a cat: she lands on her feet.
I am not abandoning Yoyo, I am just dancing slowly away from it.

Thanks to Tecknobabel & Wayne for related inf. :)


**********************************


The number of participators are 25 persons including the host.

Hereby I made an apology to group # 4 again occurring all of you moved
right side → left side → right side → to be tired from running around
since the occasion of the first floor at California is really ◎※$?& :evil:
(2nd floor is under construction).


*****************************************


To keep my promise, the following is my conclusion for today’s topic


The president of SAMPO company, Chen , Sheng-Tian has inspired
young generation with some words, I try to translate his article into
English let’s encourage each other together:

Life is a long journey there are two important things: one is storage
provisions to store the wisdom for preparation to our itinerary.

Another one is understanding to put down, set down these meaningless
loadings, we should learn to drop unimportant things、unworthily keep
In mind things and senseless conflict.

Our body and mind are for the realize the good from this world not for
to burden with all negative spirit.


(Oh ~ oh , :twisted: why did I feel that I am alike 陳盛沺 is grandparent-generation? :roll: )

Personally, I am not too comfortable with the way "tribulation" is being used to describe life's challenges on a personal level. This word is just too grand for such mundane occasion. I did a google search within newsgroup and it appears that this word seemed to have some special Biblical/religious sense.
I am not abandoning Yoyo, I am just dancing slowly away from it.

The word "tribulation" does not mean "frustration" as suggested by the host. Instead, it means "difficulty", "trouble", or "suffering".
