A Book About Wonderful and Amazingly Written Letters

I found this link and it tells about a book about letters written from the heart. I specifically love this one written by a dying mother to her daughter.

Check it out I guarantee that if you haven't written a snail mail in a long time, this will encourage you to write something again on paper and mail it through the Postal System.


Welcome 2014

And thank you 2013for all the blessings ! May the Universe created by God continue to shower upon us  abundance in health, love for our fellow men and always the gift of giving!

It is the year if the horse starting January 30! Good vibes rock!


Speedrun (Ep #3): Star Wars

nice! i hope my son learns how to program a cartoon/video maker like this.. he can do a lot creative stuff with software such as the one used in creating this clip


Look vapor trails

Could it be true that other than this innocent looking vapor trails from  a passing jet,  some form of  chemical/s are released from the sky by not so well-meaning people?

And for what use? I shudder at the thought and the possibilities..

My grand children were observing these vapor trails slowly dissipate in the sky one sunny and windy afternoon..

Yoya Look Moon

Yoya (Lola) look.. moon..

Little words from my small grandchild.

I wonder does she think it's a dot in the sky? Or something that one can touch given a very tall ladder?

Someday she will learn that man was supposed to have reached and landed on the moon just about  the time her Lola  started her freshman studies in college.. i am sure to her, that would seem a long, long time ago.



look Lola!
Is that a dot or a plate
I wonda'?
Aya  my dear
It's the moon,
is that clear?

It's not twinkle
twinkle little star
But shine
shine moon

There you are
Aya is singing
as if in a croon.


Destructive Little Ways

Destructive little thing 2 happening in the month of February, 2013. Can you believe that?

No sweat!


If only

"The happiness of most people is not ruined by great catastrophes or fatal errors, but by the repetition of slowly destructive little things".


Think and Stay Young - that's the goal

Living in the metropolis requires a hearty life because the city is so energized by both good and bad vibes. It is really up to us to live our lives with equanimity to reduce the everyday stress. I grabbed this somewhere as some kind of tips or suggestions to retain or at least reduce the effects of aging:

1.. Try everything twice. On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:
      "Tried everything twice. Loved it both times!"

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
   (Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning. Learn more about  computers, gadgets if you will;  crafts, gardening, whatever.. Never let the brain get idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

6. Tears happen.  Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.. Make your home  your refuge.

8. Cherish your health. If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

    Ex: I love you, my special friend!

11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance..

   But do share this with someone if you can. Remember, lost time can never be found again.
   Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you might meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Wine does not make you FAT .... it makes you LEAN .....
(against tables, chairs, floors, walls and ugly people.)


My prayer on the 2nd day of 2013

Life will drastically change for me this year. And I am praying that the Lord our God and all the positive energy of His Universe will help anchor me during the change,


I had a dream

Of two brown horses.. the other one is dead like it was roasted while the other one is dying or almost gone. In the dream I was in a questioning state of mind; why  are the horses in this condition? who did this?

When I looked up the meaing of the dream, this what what I found out:

"To see a dead horse in your dream indicates that something in your life that initially offered you strength is now gone. This may refer to a relationship or situation. Consider the phrase 'beating a dead horse' to indicate that you may have maximized the usefulness of a certain circumstance".

To dream of a dead horse, signifies disappointments of various kinds and it could mean a "serious loss of energy or motivation which could lead to illness or depression; or maybe,  an old and dying set of habits and motivations or way of life. In other words it could mean loss of health, energy, and enthusiasm.


One of The Voice Top 3 Finalists - Nicholas David

I wish this 32 old VOICE contestant wins the top prize. He is so super unique, nothing I have seen for the last 40 years. Yes, that's right he looks like a hippie. Hippies are of the '70's generation. The  'make love not war' kind of soundbites for that time tells me that it's impossible his not from that era. The truth is  he's only 32 years old.. so there.

 I like Nicholas David (Moworinski. He is the real deal. The press says he is spiritual, someone very connected to Nature and all things natural. Find more interesting things about Nicholas here.

Thanks to this site for the photo.

And if you want to hear the gorgeous, soulful voice of Nicholas, hear this:



Back when Sting was still part of his original group Police, i was already a fan. In fact I got this CD sometime 1993 or 1994 because I saw his advocacy most immediately after playing this CD. Sting is a true original artist.. a political advocate and now I heard he is much into the environment..

This CD talks mostly about the ills in the society.. great melodies.. even greater messages.. I heard he sang and dedicated a song for the victims of Pablo in Mindanao..

Truly an icon..


Talk about grandparents

My cousin posted this most recent I guess, photo of my grandparents on my father's side. My grandma Inang as we call her hails from Bulacan and my grandpa, Tatang as we refer to him is from Nueva Ecija.

My Titos and Titas look more like they descended from the Chinese or Japanese race, essentially because of the chinkiness of the eyes.

But my father though looks more like my grandma you see.

Feliza Fernandez Domingo and Jose Mendiola Domingo

I remember my Lola as soft spoken woman always slow and soft in the things that comes out of her lips; as against my grandfather who seem to be always having a bad day and possess a nasty habit of cursing in the vernacular :-)

On my father's side of the clan, the men have MORE say in what goes on in the family. If my grandfather says something, that goes without fail.. and growing up in that kind of family environment was kind of distressing sometimes because my father wanted to raise us similar to how he and his siblings were raised by his father :-)

The system has its merits and demerits.. suffice it to say that that kind of a system will never work in this day and age.

Effects of Climactic Changes

Almost a year ago, Sendong devastated the City of Cagayan de Oro in Misamis Oriental. Today, Davao, Surigao including many other provinces of Mindanao and the Visayas is expected to experience the onslaught of Pablo (Bopha). I hope and pray that this is NOT going to ne an annual thing.

Will we see something like this again?

We Must Never Ever Forget

Stop Illegal Logging!!

On the eve of the possible onslaught of Pablo (Bopha) which they say might hit Metro Manila as well!

We can only Pray!


Christmas Tree 2012

From last year's Christmas tree to this  still dirty tree,

And now voila! Tadah! Christmas tree v 2012.


Filling the house with Love

Christmas is always a message of HOPE..

And yes call me a great hoarder of  Christmas decor.. I would not mind..

Christmas and all things nice

Why buy again?

My old Christmas tree (sigh) is waiting for a big clean bath. Good it drizzled for awhile. That tree bath is happening tonight when the sun is temporarily out.

I could hear the tree talk saying, "so you're back with me, huh." I was really meaning to give the tree a break by buying a new one. What with all that experience with Ondoy. But as circumstances dictate, the tree is here to stay for the 2012 holidays :-D


Is Big Brother Watching?

Is this some form of big brother  watching?
"Like other technology and communications companies, Google regularly receives requests from government agencies and courts around the world to hand over user data. In this report, we disclose the number of requests we receive from each government in six-month periods with certain limitations."
 What is a user data request?

Government agencies make requests to Google companies seeking information about Google users accounts or products. In this report, we are generally revealing statistics about demands in criminal investigations. In some cases we may not be able to tell if the demand is for a criminal investigation as opposed to some other purpose. In those situations, we try to include the request in these statistics.

Celebration for a new Beginning

When we attended Caloy and Peaches wedding celebration I was in a similar get-up :-D

Best Wishes and Congratulations!

"How to Rig an Election"

Something I found very interesting I had my eyes glued on the desktop screen and mainly due perhaps to the  upcoming 2013 Midterm elections.


Congratulations to Pres Barack Obama!

303 -204 electoral votes in favor of Barack Obama.. hotly contested campaign and yes victory at last, however the house of representatives remain hugely Republican (despite Senate being Democrats).. i think BO would have a difficult time pushing his reforms in this kind of a scenario..

international reaction will be quite positive i assume.. but economic as well as climate related concerns plaguing the world in general need to be addressed.. BO has been re-elected now what? I hope he truly makes a difference.. hu hum


Who is to blame?

All over the radio: two adult siblings kill an unsuspecting new cum laude grad as she was trying to buy some snack at a not so late 7:00 P.M.. This happened in Bacoor.  It appears that the two were both  drug crazed as they confessed over the radio while both their wives claim they didn't have any drug  habit. One of the wives was  pregnant with her 3rd or 2nd child. Both women are under 25 years old.

One of the suspects was a tricycle diver and older one a vegetable vendor. Presumably, both do not possess any education. Motive of the killing was robbery but also  indicated attempted rape. It seem that cases like this abound elsewhere.

Who do we blame for these two men's -

1. drug habits
2. apparent economic deprivation
3. lack of education
4. appearance of uncontrolled birth


The Universe is Frowning ..

.. on the US East Coast because Sandy is hammering down on them?

Not really. These more recent global weather disasters I think were just all waiting to happen.. effects of climate change I suppose..

It seems that world weather conditions have morphmed into what we see now as monstrous flood water carrying climate happenings.

Can we still afford not to heed Nature's call of moderation?

An animation of satellite observations from Oct. 26-29, 2012, shows Hurricane Sandy move along the U.S. East coast and into the Mid-Atlantic and northeastern U.S. Sandy had still not made landfall by the end of this
