Behind the beauty of the Mayon, is its fearing condition of a near eruption. On December 20th, the alert level around Mount Mayon was raised to number four on the five-point scale used by geologists (level four means an eruption is imminent while level five means an eruption is in progress). Over the past 24 hours, the volcanic activity increased, with 222 volcanic earthquakes reported. On December 20th, the no-go zone was extended and troops were called in to forcibly evacuate if necessary those people living within the 10-kilometer restricted area. Since December 14th, Mount Mayon, Philippines' most active volcano, has spewed ashes, burning mud and rocks, leading the local authorities to order the evacuation of 50,000 people living in the 10-kilometer (6-7 miles) danger zone around the volcano.
Praying for those people near in the said volcano is one we can do for them. Their safety and ample convenience in their evacuation centers are essential for their survival. We can do it for them!

One of the best in this world are the stars... they are one of the most beautiful things God created, and that's why I love stars.
Looking them above at night makes me feel that life is beautiful. I got sad when I don't see any stars at night especially when it rains. I love tracing the big and small dipper... and the Orion too. The Orion's Belt is comprised of 3 stars known to us as the "3 maria". The rosary patterned stars is also one I love to see.

The article mentioned Jakob Nielsen, a usability guru that have traditionally expounded that web sites should be usable, not pretty. I agree. I understand his point that it is on the “usability” criteria as seen in his view. Usability factor make a site functional, yes, and it is the “usability” of a site that makes it essential and worthy. For what is a site if it is not useful? But, accordingly, what is a site if it is dull? Unexciting or dead? While, usability is important, the visual design makes the site a “mark”. And this mark will help a site memorable and establish a focal point for where it will be known.
For best results, as the phrase entails… all the essential characteristics that a web site must posses, must be present. Therefore, balance of “form and function” is important. The site must establish and maintain usability in many aspects, and at the same time, the site must also have a good visual design.

Oh... Earthworm Raising Business, this business was the one our professor had chosen for our "Project Feasibility Study". It is very challenging on my group's part to study and prove the viability of this business.
But, as I study this subject, I found many interesting facts about the economic and nutritive value of earthworms. The greatest benefit from earthworms is that they help in conditioning the soil. And... there is a way of culturing earthworms that are edible!
Earthworms are indeed among the lowest life forms, and they get no respect. But, earthworms have gentle and beneficial side.
As we are moving in the depth of this study... may we find more interesting things about this venture as it really help people in earning money in livelihood aspects.

I may be a deep person... serious... and always in focus of things I have to be focusing. But what's in the other of me, is my love for knowing essential things I did not already know... a natural characteristic of humans, we seek knowledge.
Why I love blogging? Because it makes me feel happy when I share interesting things to other people... more than to those who I already knew, but on the internet which link more people. I begun when I realize the practicality of blogging, the use of blogging, the benefits of it and its goodness on my part as it serves my outlet to express what I want.
Currently, I am planning to make my other blog sites. In which I will express my nationalism for my country... the other one is about my personal experiences.
Summing up... why I love blogging, is because it is where I found my "interest".

We think about it,
sing about it,
dream about it,
and lose sleep worrying about it.
When we don't have it,
we search for it;
when we discover it,
we don't know what to do without it,
when we have it,
we fear losing it.
It's a constant source of pleasure and pain
but we can't predict from one minute to the next,
which could be today.
We love our parents,
our brothers and sisters,
our boyfriends and girlfriends,
our cats and dogs,
our comfortable shoes
and our baseball gloves.
- It's a short work,
easy to spell,
difficult to define,
impossible to live without.
History proved that over centuries sapphire gemstone are recognized for their beauty. The ancients from the land of Persia believed very strongly that our Earth; a rotund ball has its resting place in a giant sapphire. The prized ones among the gemstone sapphire are deep blue in color and it was his color, which led the ancients to believe that vast sky above us its color.
There are variety of sapphire gemstones color, but only red is not included for it would mean it was a ruby. The gemstone is like a rainbow present in color of almost every hue, it occurs in colors ranging from very light to dark blue to violets-blue, bluish-green, yellow, slightly reddish-orange, brown, nearly opaque black, colorless, pink and violet.
Sapphire basic material is known as Corundum, which is a colorless material, formed from aluminium oxide. The color blue results due to the addition of titanium and iron during the formation of the sapphire crystals. Crystals of sapphire are found as hexagonal bi-pyramids. Raw sapphire gemstones are usually water-worn, which gives them the appearance of miniature barrels.
Sapphires are said to give peace of mind, tranquility, happiness and spiritual enlightenment. It also symbolizes sincerity and faithfulness, and is an execellent choice for an engagement ring. When Prince Charles gave Princess Diana a sapphire engagement ring, couples all over the world were inspired to revive this ancient tradition.
(A girl and guy were speeding over 100 mph on a motorcycle)
down. Im scared.
Guy: No this is fun.
Girl: No its not. Please, its to scary!
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down!
Guy: Now give me a BIG hug.
(Girl hugs him)
Guy: Can u take my helmet off and put it on? Its bugging me.
In the paper the next day: A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of break failure. Two people were on the motorcycle, but only one survived.
The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his breaks broke, but he didn't want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him, felt her hug one last time, then had her wear his helmet so she would live even though it meant he would die.
"How do you find the story? I think the guy's decision to save his girl's life is a matter of sacrificing his own... and a true love existed."

Laptops are compact. The single laptop contains, your monitor, CPU, speakers, keyboard, mouse and everything else a normal computer contains. If you do not have place at home or have little space on your office desk. If your situation is such that you do not have space to accommodate another computer, then it would be good to go in for laptop.
In India, once in a while the electricity still does fail. A laptop is kind of a desktop computer and a in-built UPS. It can be charged with battery and it will stay on so long as the battery has charge. So, if you act wisely, and keep your laptop charged, you will never have the problem on not being able to work on your laptop because the lights have gone.

A cat has special scent glands found in different parts of its body. These include the cat's chin and around the eyes. When the cat rubs its head on you, it rubs off its scent on you. This is its way of marking you to claim you as "his". This is the cat's way of showing its deep affection for you. That's also why you will notice that when the cat does this, it seems to be in a loving and contended mood.
“I had pizza yesterday,” remarked Tom, “so I think I’ll eat hamburger today.”
“There’s one thing on the menu I’m sure I don’t want, and that’s squash!” Mark exclaimed.
“A couple of those chocolate cookies,” said Tom, “will be fine for dessert.”
Only part of the words in their conversation had their beginnings in England itself. Many of the words that the boys used were borrowed from other languages. The words whether, have, think, yesterday, eat and today are some of the real English words in Mark and Tom’s conversation.
When Mark used the word decide, he was borrowing from Latin, where the word meant “to cut down.” To decide on something, one “cuts off useless thinking.”
From Brittany, on the north coast of France, comes the term chowder. The fishermen there used a big pot in which to cook fish and biscuits. Each fishermen tossed part of his catch into the pot. The name of the pot was soon given to the food cooked in it, so from the term of the cooking pot we have the word chowder.
Another word from the French is dessert. Their word for this pert of the meal meant “clear away.” Dessert is something that is served after the dirty dishes have been “cleared away.”
The word menu also comes from the French. Menu is French means “a small part.” The meaning probably refers to the fact that the separate details of the meal are listed.
Chile con carne comes from the Spanish language. So does the word chocolate, which was taken from a Mexican Indian word for the cacao tree. Their word for chocolate meant “bitter-water.” If you have eaten unsweetened chocolate, you will agree that the term is a descriptive one.
From Italy, in the southern part of Europe, we get pizza. The term chop suey is from Chinese. Their word for this dish means “odds and ends”. Do you know the ingredients of chop suey? Find a recipe and see how many things go into the making of this dish.
Hamburgers seem to be truly American food, yet they are named for the city of Hamburg in Germany. The word hamburger has no connection with ham.
Our forefathers shortened the Algonquin Indian word, askutasquash, to plain squash.
In speaking of cookies for dessert, Tom used a word from the Dutch. Their word koekje meant “little cake.”
These are only some of many foreign borrowings as people spoke English.
They have wide lists of supercharger models to choose from, like buick supercharger, Mercedes supercharger, and Pontiac supercharger. Prices are affordable as it is combined with high quality of their products. Some of these is the Buick LaCrosse A/C Compressor – Reman with Clutch priced at $295, another is the Pontiac Torrent A/C Expansion Device at $55.

* Tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world, playing second fiddle only to water. It is in almost every culture, and there are literally thousands of varieties.
* Tea is often said to be traced back to a Chinese Emperor, Shen Nung who live over 4700 years ago. Although this is likely not true, the earliest record that confirms the cultivation of tea is dated to the 4th century China. Drinking tea leaves steeped in a tea pot did not become popular until the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and modern tea drinking is about the same age.
* Tea contains about 50% less caffeine than coffee, making it a great alternative to those that are sensitive to caffeine intake. Tea can also be made to be decaffeinated as most of the caffeine is released in the first few minutes of the steep.
* Until the nineteenth century, solid blocks of tea were used as money in Siberia. Who would believe that tea blocks were used as currency!
* White Tea has a higher anti-oxidant level than green tea, making it superior in it's ability to boost the immune system and heal the body.
* There are four main types of tea which are, white, green, oolong, and black, all which are born from the same species of plant.
* Camellia sinensis is the scientific classification for the tea plant.
* China is the birthplace of tea and gives to us some of the finest varieties of white and green teas. Although China is the origin of tea, surprisingly, it is not the world's largest overall producer of tea.
* Tea is a natural source of fluoride that can help protect against tooth decay and gum disease.
* An average of three billion cups of tea are consumed daily worldwide.
Tastes good, tastes interesting... While tea is traditionally people's favorite, it is nice to know more about it! :)

Evidence suggests that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, gallstones, Parkinson's disease, cirrhosis and certain types of cancers. Hundreds of compounds, including antioxidants, seem to be responsible for coffee's many protective benefits. A Harvard study revealed coffee drinkers had a lower risk of dying of cardiovascular causes than nondrinkers. A Norwegian study found that a typical serving of brewed coffee is richer in antioxidants than a serving of blueberries, raspberries, or many fruit juices. Coffee might help the mind as much as the body. One study found that sleep-deprived rats were much calmer simply after inhaling the scent of roasted coffee beans. Still, many dietitians recommend drinking in moderation – only one or two cups of coffee a day and without the added whole milk and sugar (which jolt only the waistline). If you drink much more than that, the caffeine can dehydrate you or raise your blood pressure. Pregnant women should limit their intake as well, since coffee can boost the risk of miscarriage.
It is better to know and be aware of your health, start with the basic.

I like colognes and perfumes because it adds up beauty and excitement to your personality. Nature is the primary producer of natural and fascinating fragrances, and these scents bring the spirit of nature’s marvels. In relation to this, I like the smell of nature… more specifically, the fruits. So that, colognes and perfumes that I choose had fruity smell, but note, it is picky to teens like me, to choose gentle or light scents of these fruits when it comes to perfumes or colognes, meaning not that gave strong scent. For me, I also like refreshing scents, like those colognes or perfumes that when you smell it, it helps you feel fresh and cool. The selection of these fragrances must fit your personality and also thinking the people who may smell you. So enjoy adding Scent to your personality.

Said my pajamas and put on my prayers
I turned off the bed and crawled into the light
All because you kissed me goodnight.
Next morning I woke and scrambled my shoes
Polish my eggs and toasted the news
I couldn’t tell my left from my right
All because you kissed me goodnight.
That evening at last, I felt normal again
So I picked up my mother and called the phone
I spoke to the puppy and threw Dad a bone
Even at midnight the sun was still bright
All because you kissed me goodnight.
This poem is so fantastic. It was nice and funny, and i appreciate its creativity. Even though it is of anonymous authorship, I admire this poem and its author. Great!

Daffodil’s have meanings of faith, honesty, truth, forgiveness, and forthrightness. They are ever vigilant in returning each spring, and with their return we are reminded that their beauty is capable of following on the shirttails of even the harshest winters (or tribulations). Give daffodils to someone when as a token of forgiveness or give them away as a token of appreciation for their honesty.
Lilies are the flowers of the spiritually advanced. They are also the totem flowers of mothers (especially new ones), fertility and nurturing. Lilies are also appropriate flowers to present during weddings as they are symbolic of unions, partnerships, and long lasting relationships. Give lilies to new mothers and brides-to-be; share the symbolism of these beautiful blossoms with them, and watch their faces light up with delight.
Rose meanings vary according to color. On the whole, however, roses are symbolic of deep love, concentration, intelligence, balance, and passion. They are also sometimes seen as a message for healing, revitalization, rejuvenation and courage. Roses are very complex in their features, and so therefore have complex meanings. More than just Valentine’s Day favorites, roses bear the mark of honor, devotion and intense commitment on many levels. Give roses only when you are serious about your intentions.
Sunflower. The way they move their massive heads to meet the sun make them a flower of spiritual attainment, flexibility, and opportunity. They are also symbolic of good luck, wealth and ambition. Give sunflowers away to someone who is working toward a goal and needs a big break in their lives. They are also an excellent housewarming gift as the receiver embraces new opportunities in the form of hearth and home.
Tulips are also voracious sun seekers (like the sunflower) and will sway their heads in crazy contortions seeking out the best angle for light. This makes them a symbol of opportunity, adjustment, advancement, and aspiration. They are commonly thought to represent attainment of spiritual awareness too. Because they are from bulbs, and return every year (like the daffodil) tulips are symbolic of resurrection and determination.
May these flower meanings helped you to know which one matched you. Indeed, flowers are nature's beauty, and they have their great essential impact to humans.

Chocolate was introduced into the United States in 1765 when cocoa beans were brought from the West Indies to Dorchester, Massachusetts.
Cocoa butter is the natural fat of the cocoa bean. It has a delicate chocolate aroma, but is very bitter tasting. It is used to give body, smoothness, and flavor to eating chocolate.
Hawaii is the only US state that grows cacao beans to produce chocolate.
In Hershey, Pennsylvania, the streetlights along "Chocolate Avenue" are in the shape of Hershey Kisses.
It's a common myth that chocolate aggravates acne. Experiments conducted at the University of Pennsylvania and the U.S. Naval Academy found that consumption of chocolate -- even frequent daily dietary intake -- had no effect on the incidence of acne. Professional dermatologists today do not link acne with diet.
One plain milk chocolate candy bar has more protein than a banana.
Pet parrots can eat virtually any common "people-food" except for chocolate and avocados. Both of these are highly toxic to the parrot and can be fatal.
Ten percent of U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance of iron is found in one ounce of baking chocolate or cocoa. Chocolate also contains Vitamins A1, B1, B2, C, D and E as well as calcium, potassium, sodium and iron.
The American Heart Association recommends that daily cholesterol intake not exceed 300 mg. A chocolate bar is actually low in cholesterol. A 1.65 oz. bar contains only 12 mg! A one oz piece of cheddar cheese contains 30 mg of cholesterol - more than double the amount found in a chocolate bar.
The botanical name of the chocolate plant is Theobramba cacao, which means "Food of the Gods."
The theobromine in chocolate that stimulates the cardiac and nervous systems is too much for dogs, especially smaller pups. A chocolate bar is poisonous to dogs and can even be lethal.
The world's first chocolate candy was produced in 1828 by Dutch chocolate-maker Conrad J. Van Houten. He pressed the fat from roasted cacao beans to produce cocoa butter, to which he added cocoa powder and sugar.
Amazing, it help me a lot to know more about may favorite... chocolates!

Valentine Traditions and Superstitions
In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who their valentines would be. They would wear these names on their sleeves for one week. To wear your heart on your sleeve now means that it is easy for other people to know how you are feeling.
Some people used to believe that if a woman saw a robin flying overhead on Valentine's Day, it meant she would marry a sailor. If she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man and be very happy. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a millionaire.
Some people said if you found a glove on the road on Valentine's Day, your future beloved will have the other missing glove.
Some believed the first man's name you read in the paper or hear will be the name of the man you will marry.
Pick a dandelion that has gone to seed. Take a deep breath and blow the seeds into the wind. Count the seed that remain on the stem, and that is the number of children you will have.
Or, cut an apple in half and count how many seeds are inside, you can also tell how many children you will have.

As I’ve researched, according to folklore, these foods are good for you. Now some scientists agree.
Cranberry Juice is good for urinary-tract infections. The juice inhibits a type of bacteria that clings to the wall of the bladder and causes infection.
Carrots are good for your eyes. Carrots and some other fruits and vegetables contain beta-carotene, which can reduce the chance of eye disease. One carrot a day can help prevent mascular degeneration, which eventually leads to blindness.
Chicken Soup fights congestion that comes with a cold. Chicken has amino acid that thins the mucous lining of the sinuses, relieving stuffiness.
Garlic and Onions can kill flu and cold viruses.
Fish is good for your brain. The mineral zinc is found in fish and shellfish. Studies show that even a small deficiency of zinc impairs thinking and memory.
Blueberries fight the bacteria that causes diarrhea.
Bananas are a natural antacid. They soothe heartburn.
Spinach is good for your spirits. It contains lots of folic. If your body doesn’t have enough folic acid, you may feel depressed.
Eat Onions to fight insomnia. Onions contain a mild natural sedative called quercetin that will help you fall asleep.

Seems that everything feels not right.
I reach for something to catch some light,
Then my nothing but empty room turns bright.
I saw myself starring at the ceiling,
There's nothing but just old white plain thing.
"Just like myself", as I thought,
"Just idle spaces between these walls."
I can't explain why tears kept flowing,
I saw myself find it hard to stop sobbing.
I'm longing and waiting for the dawn to come,
So I can wipe these tears away somehow.
As I see the sun starting to unblind,
I stood up from my bed and forged a smile.
Another day of false happiness I brought to life,
Another sword of loneliness stabbed in my heart.

This poem was given to me by my lovable friend. It pictures the real sadness of a heart which is in her. From the poem one will figure the feeling of the author as she writes it so heartfelt.

So be careful and warn your self whenever you may see this creature. Remember the poison it had. Actually scorpions are really scary and it is good to be well-informed to their characteristic.
Poison arrow frog. Next time you're in the rain forest of Central or South America and you spy this little amphibian, don't pick it up: its skin contains a toxic chemical that sickens or kills any animal that touches or eats it. Two micrograms of its toxin (barely enough to fit on the head of pin) will kill a large mammal - or even a person.
Imagine the terror of this kind of frog's poison, its color is attractive yet behind its look, this amphibian can end a life.

One moment, I reflect to life,
It told me, choosing is only between left and right.
For how you choose always matter to the rule,
But what you choose matters to you by whole.
Two questions arise as to die or live your life,
The fruit of the answer maybe raw or ripe.
Move, take the step towards goals without rage.
Act well your part on and behind the stage.
Tree not three, is the symbol of life,
For three may count only up to three even you wipe.
For tree's leaves may count infinitely,
And for a tree's life may last in numbers untold by many.
My first poem to be published on my blog. "Hope is constant in life, you just ignore it at times."
Are you worried about the melting economy? Do you want to help or contribute solving the problem?If so, you can help by participating in Reinventing America by going to their website and learn what you can do to help.

Today, as I went to the terminal to go to school, on my way, I see an angel, a very beautiful baby in disguise. The baby looked at me, so very innocent and suddenly a different feeling burst on me. I feel so light, worry-free and lucky at that moment. And that for me, is an "angel" that designated to meet and greet me "for this day".The angel or cherub is a heavenly being, and they are superior to humans. They are said to be the one who serves as an attendant and messenger of God, or a guardian for someone on Earth.
The study of angels is called Angelology. In 1978, over half the people in the U.S. who were asked, said they believed in angels. Angels are drawn on greeting cards, painted on ceilings and mentioned in one of every top ten songs. Angelfood cake, the California Angels baseball team, and the city of Los Angeles (Spanish for “city of angels” ) all show our fondness for and fascination with angels. Whether you are an “angelologist” or not, you'll want to know all about angels.
Unnoticeable maybe you also encounter angels everyday... not winged, not with halos, not bright or glowing, but yet unusual and mysterious, they just come to you, when you least expect them!
