Auld Lang Syne lyrics

Auld Lang Syne -by Rabbie Burns

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I'll be mine,
And we'll take a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd monie a weary fit,
Sin auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o thine,
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne

Happy New Year 2009

Peace Wisher would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a fruitful, Joyful and Wonderful 2009 ahead.

There are many events happened in 2008, i think one of the biggest break through that happened in 2008 is Barack Obama elected as the first African American president in the United States of America.

Pray that there will be no more war, no more hunger in this world. The economy of the world will bounce back miraculously.

Let's do our part to make this world a beautiful place to live.

2008 just flies like a rocket, sometimes when i look back it is like a dream, i don't really feel that i have done much but thank God that i saw some achievement in certain things in life, i learned to count my blessing each day, this is a superb way to find contentment in life.

I am happy with what i have and i wish everyone does.

When we pray we ask for more wisdom rather than less problem because when we face problems or challenges in life this is the time that we really learn; thus, it makes you a stronger person.

When we start to curse our days, we feel frustrated with our lives when things didn't go our way we will tend to be 'self pity' and said how unlucky we are, but whenever you have this kind of thoughts pause for a moment! look at those in poor countries, who doesn't have food to eat, clean water to drink and you still have food on your table, are you really that 'unlucky' ? Look at those in the war they don't even know if the next second they will still be able to live, their home been ruined, theres not shelter for them, everyday they have to live in fear, how about that? are you really that 'unlucky'?

If we can train ourselves to give more than take, after awhile you will notice you are a happier person.

We tend to take our blessing for granted, we always overlooked some blessings in life but instead we focus on the 'unlucky' events. For instance, when you get a parking at work do you count it as a blessing? but when you can't find a parking you will get frustrated, but if you compare the ratio of you getting parking to unable to get parking your blessing ratio is much much higher!

another blessing is, we are able to get up in the morning and still breathing, some people can't even get up the next morning.

I hope in 2009 we will not let the frustration and self pity overpowered us but instead we let the blessings and joy immerse us.

Happy Happy Happy 2009 to the world.

Loving old couple die on the same day


What a touching love story this is almost like a fairytale....

A Victorian (Australia) husband and wife devoted to each other for 66 years have died within six hours of each other.

Herbert and Laura Bate, aged 89 and 85, died on Sunday less than a week after their 66th wedding anniversary, The Geelong Advertiser has reported.

"It is sad, but they loved each other and were together,'' son Geoff Bate was quoted as saying.

The couple, who had five sons, moved into Bannockburn Aged Care six weeks ago because of their deteriorating health and Mrs Bate suffered a stroke last Friday.

Daughter-in-law Jean Bate said Herbert saw himself as Laura's "protector" and had always said he would rather his wife "went first".

"He was hanging on until he knew she wasn't coming back … when he knew she was dying he died himself,'' she said.

Mr Bate died at 7.30am and Mrs Bate died at 1.30pm.

Mr Bate served in Darwin for two years during World War II and had worked at the Point Wilson explosives pier north west of Geelong while Mrs Bate worked as a cook.

But their sons said they couldn't bear to be apart.

When Mrs Bate first moved into a residential aged care facility in Lara — 15km north east of Geelong — two years ago, Geoff said his father drove 20km in his ute every day from Anakie to see her.

"When we told him he had to stop making the drive, he would just sneak out to see her," he said.

"They didn't want to live without each other."

How to Combat Acid Reflux ?

Learn How to Combat Acid Reflux

Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen Give Tips on Managing GERD

Heartburn or acid reflux — no matter what you call it, that burning sensation inside the chest after eating certain foods can cause real problems for chronic suffers.

Almost 20 million people have Gastroesophageal reflux, and it causes nearly five million doctors' visits annually. While the condition can cause sleep disorders, asthma, bad breath, rotten teeth and even esophageal cancer, it is treatable.

Oprah's favorite go-to doc, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and Dr. Michael Roizen offer tips on what to do and how to manage GERD. Check out their suggestions below.

How do you know that what you're feeling is more than one bad meal? How is GERD diagnosed?

Everyone gets occasional reflux, which is actually a good thing. It allows us to experiment with novel foods and vomit or burp afterward — unlike horses, which commonly die from colic after stomach distension. However, if symptoms persist for greater than two days per week for three months, then you may have acid reflux.

Five superb food to reduce cholesterol dramatically

This is the advice from the "Good Morning America" Dr. Marie Savard on how to dramatically reduce your cholesterol level.

A Handful of Nuts Each Day

Nuts -- like almonds, walnuts, peanuts and pecans -- can reduce cholesterol, along with blood sugar and insulin.

They're also full of fiber and anti-oxidants that fight cancer. You should eat a handful of nuts a day. And don't worry about your waistline. Studies show nuts actually help shrink your waistline; they have a good kind of fat.

Fiber-Rich Foods

Food rich in fiber, like fruits, vegetables and whole grains, help control cholesterol. Fiber absorbs the bad cholesterol in your body like a sponge. You should eat a bowl of oatmeal a day, or about 6 ounces of eggplant. You can also eat apples and pears and broccoli. They all have the same effect.

Take Fiber Supplements

Just as fibers in food absorb all that bad cholesterol in your body, fiber supplements, like Metamucil and Citrucel, do the same thing. The more you take, the more effect it has on lowering your cholesterol. So, you should take three doses a day, one before each meal. You also can eat psyllium-enriched cereal. It will also keep your digestive system working well.

Replace Some Meat With Soy

Start replacing some of the meat you eat with soy. Eat a veggie burger instead of a hamburger, or use ground soy instead of ground beef. You should eat about two ounces of soy a day. That's about the typical soy burger, or you can drink soy milk or eat edamame, Japanese baby soy beans.

Eat Plant Stanol Spreads

This may be something you haven't heard a lot about, but you need to incorporate plant stanols into your diet. It is proven to lower your bad cholesterol. Plant stanols alone can lower your LDL cholesterol by as much as 15 percent.

So, instead of butter, use Benecol, Puritan or another plant stanol spread. And you should use about four grams a day.

All or Nothing?

It's not all or nothing. Just using plant stanols can lower cholesterol by 15 percent. The more you do, the greater effect it will have. But it will be helpful to incorporate any of these foods into your diet.

This is like using food as medicine. So, the higher the dose, or the more of these foods you eat, the more you can knock down your cholesterol level. And if you really change your diet, you can get your cholesterol down as much as you would with that pill or that statin.

Michael Schumacher was arrested ?

There was a child abuse case reported in ABC News, two were arrested Kelly Lau Schumacher and Michael Schumacher. Oh not the Formula One legend, don't worry.

But this is a terrible case, just wonder how on earth a human being can do such a thing to a human? these people are totally insane.

Here is the news that i read from ABC News

A California couple has been arrested and charged with kidnapping and torturing a 17-year old boy who fled from their home Monday, bloodied with bruises, clad only in flesh-colored boxer shorts and shackled at the ankle.

"The staff noticed blood and bruising on his body, and he looked emaciated and had a chain locked to his ankle," said Matt Robinson, spokesman for the Tracy Police Department.

"The boy was confused and didn't know where he was or how long he had been held against his will," he told ABCNews.com.

The boy, covered in soot, urine and feces, arrived at the In-Shape City Sports Club around 4 p.m. Monday begging an employee to hide him, according to Robinson.

"I thought it was a prank costume," assistant manager Lea Leonardo told the Tri-Valley Herald. "He was so dirty and had the chain around his foot. His feet were swollen, he was terrified and cold. He kept saying, 'They're going to come find me.' He kept saying that over and over."

Arrested were Kelly Lau Schumacher, 30, and her husband, Michael Schumacher, 34, who lived only blocks from the fitness center. Police are also looking for a third suspect, Karen Ramirez, 43, who has a felony record and may be the boy's aunt, according to police.

The couple faces five felony charges: conspiracy to commit a misdemeanor, torture, kidnapping, false imprisonment by violence and child beating.

Some witnesses said the boy had jumped over a fence to get to the fitness center, according to local reports.

Employees called 911 as the boy curled into a fetal position on the floor underneath the counter. They wrapped the boy in towels and led him to the manager's office where they gave him food and water.

"He was totally terrified," Chuck Ellis, an employee at In-Shape City Sports Club, told The Associated Press.

Photos of Venice worst flood in two decades

One of the world's most romantic place - Venice suffers the worst flood in two decades on 2nd Dec, the water level was up to thigh high, the city was literally "submerged" in the flood water, needless to say the city was in total "Paralyzed" state. Duckboards and elevated walkways were set up for people to move around.

The cause of this floor was due to the heavy rain and strong wind that caused the water rose up to about 5ft high.

After the water retreated,a lot of cleaning works to be done as debris and sludge are everywhere. This probably not the end yet, as the bad weather coincide with the high tide there might be another flood coming.

Elisabeth Fritzl was Forced to Reenact Porn'

1 Dec 08

The charges against Josef Fritzl reveal fresh details of the ordeal he put his imprisoned daughter through, including forcing her to watch pornographic films and reenact scenes with him, the Daily Telegraph reports. Fritzl also beat and kicked his daughter, Elisabeth, whom he imprisoned for 24 years in a cellar, when she refused to co-operate, an Austrian tabloid quotes prosecutors as saying. Elisabeth's will was eventually broken and she gave up fighting, feeling her "situation was hopeless," prosecutors said. Fritzl has now been charged with murder as well as rape, incest and enslavement. When one of the seven babies he fathered with Elizabeth turned blue shortly after birth he refused to take the infant to a hospital, saying, "What must be, will be," according to prosecutors.

Britney Spears in top search of Yahoo for the 7th time

Britney Spears is making a comeback after the rock bottom of her life. It seems like this time her comeback is a possible mission as she is at the top of Yahoo search for Yahoo US and Australia.

She performed her new song - Womanizer in the X-Factor UK and apparently she looks good, her body is back in shape and not with so yiaky dress. In matter of fact she looks better with decent look rather than trying to expose all parts of her body. Many people especially the celebrities thought reveals as much as possible of their body = sexy = pretty, this is absolutely wrong! many have forgotten what is "elegant"

I hope Britney will transform to a decent look, i felt sorry for her past but i hope she really learn a lesson. All of us make mistake in life but most importantly we realize and repent.

Good Luck Britney
