When you reach for that mug in the morning , you may get more benefits than a jump.
start to the day.

Daily cups of coffee have been linked to a reduced risk of Parkinson's disease, liver cancer, gallstones and type 2 diabetes. In addition, green tea and white tea have been touted for their health benefits.

"What's interesting really is for years we were beating up on coffee. … And now study after study is suggesting benefits," said "Good Morning America" medical contributor David Katz.

So given the choice between coffee and tea, what's the healthiest thing you can reach for in the morning?

How Much to Have?
The maximum recommended amount of coffee is four 8-ounce cups a day, although it depends on the individual in terms of body size, among other factors. Because caffeine has been shown to raise blood pressure, you should limit your intake if you have any blood pressure abnormalities. More than four cups is never recommended.

There is the strong suggestion that the antioxidants in tea — whether it's black, green or white — have health benefits. Antioxidants can prevent inflammation of the blood vessels, and it has been linked to reduced risk for cancer. In terms of antioxidants, white tea has the most, followed by green tea, black tea and coffee. Green and white teas are made from different parts of the tea leaves, but both are minimally processed, unlike black tea, which is fermented. It appears the process of fermentation reduces the antioxidants in the final product.

Caffeine is associated with enhanced alertness, increased productivity and concentration when you're driving, and enhanced athletic performances. In terms of caffeine, coffee has the most followed by black tea, green tea and white tea.

Tea Vs. Tea Beverages

Because the health benefits of tea has become more recognized by the public, some manufacturers are putting a small amount of it in a product, then adding ingredients that are bad for you, such as sugar. For instance, a Snapple Green Tea has 46 grams of sugar in it — the equivalent of about 11 sugar cubes. That's more than twice as much sugar as you get in a Hershey chocolate bar, which as 22 grams of sugar. Just because the label says white tea doesn't make it a healthy drink.

"Coffee or Tea?
If you have a choice between coffee or tea, Katz says tea is better. If coffee is part of your morning routine, you have nothing to worry about

Immaculately dressed
Trying to impress.
You pass by my window

I watch you from a distance
My heart skips a beat
I wish you would come closer
You are sometimes within my reach

I stretch out my hand
want to touch
Just when I think I have you
You slip by
I am left alone
Waiting and hoping.

In the year 2006, the Lord came unto Noah, who was now living in the United States, and said, "Once again, the earth has become wicked and over-populated, and I see the end of all flesh before me.

Build another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with a few good humans."

He gave Noah the blueprints, saying, "You have 6 months to build the Ark before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights."

Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard - but no Ark.

"Noah!" He roared, "I'm about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?"

"Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah, "but things have changed.

I needed a building permit. My neighbors claim that I've violated the neighborhood zoning laws by building the Ark in my yard and exceeding the height
limitations. We had to go to the Development Appeal Board for a decision.

Then the Department of Transportation demanded a bond be posted for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions,to clear the passage for the Ark's move to the sea. I told them that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear nothing of it.

Getting the wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the spotted owl. I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls - but no go!

When I started gathering the animals, an animal rights group sued me. They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will.

Then the EPA ruled that I couldn't build the Ark until they'd conducted an environmental impact study on your proposed flood.

I'm still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I'm supposed to hire for my building crew.

Immigration and Naturalization are checking the green-card status of most of the people who want to work.

The trades unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to hire only Union workers with Ark-building experience.

To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species.

So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish this Ark."

Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky.

Noah looked up in wonder and asked, "You mean you're not going to destroy the world?"

No, " said the Lord. "The government beat me to it."

Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

Stress is the "wear and tear" our bodies experience as we adjust to our
changing environment; it has physical and emotional effects on us and can create positive or negative feelings. As a positive influence, stress can help compel us to action; it can result in a new awareness and an exciting new perspective. As a negative influence, it can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression, which in turn can lead to health problems such as headaches, upset stomach, rashes, insomnia, ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

Do parents go through undue stress when it comes to their children. I think that from the time they are born, actually it even starts before the birth of a child.You stress about their health, their studies and if we are doing a good job raising our children and even later on , you stress about the friends they have, the person they are going to marry and so on. I think stress and worry go hand in hand. How do we seperate the two.

Right now I am so stressed because my daughter is doing a very important examination. I know in my heart that she will give it everything she has, but I am still worried for her. I am stressed because it is a difficult exam, stressed if she will do well, stressed because I dont want her to be hurt. I dont want her to be upset if she does not do well.At the same time when I talk to her I dont want her to know that I am as stressed as she is.I want to remain calm, I tell her about episodes in my life where I have not done well.I tell her that no matter what LIfe will go on and when she is older she will look back and maybe laugh .She tells me that there are some kids who are so stressed about the exam that they are throwing up.Mom she says "Atleast I am not doing that." I know she does not want to disappoint us. I tell her its OK but I think we put so much of emphasis on education and the expectations we have on a child that they are scared of not coming through.I dont know if it is a good thing or bad.

Today she is taking the Exam.I say to her" make sure you take your glasses incase you drop your contact lens, take a light jacket because the exam room may get too cold with the AC.Its very hot outside so make sure you take some water with you. Sleep well and eat a good breakfst and dont forget to pray. She listens patiently and then says. " thank you mom for everything and for caring. I love you."

Does that make me less stressed. It does to a certain degree. Her voice is calm, she reassured me that she will be OK.I know as parents we can never ever be without stress.I only pray that when she is a parent she will be less stressed than me.

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”

He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything. - Arabian Proverb

Nothing is more noble, nothing more venerable than fidelity. Faithfulness and truth are the most sacred excellences and endowments of the human mind.

I was reading this article and just could not understand how people can spend so much money on pets. Dont get me wrong I am an animal lover and would never harm one, but I just dont get the Humanizing part of it.I have seen people treat their pets better than their children and even family. Is it right, is it wrong I dont know. I believe in providing food and shelter for the animal and treating them kindly. But when there are so many children living in poverty I dont get these air conditioned hotels for the pets and pet massages etc. I see people inter acting with their pets like they were humans. Am I the only one who feels like this or are others out there.

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Washingtonians can now drop their pooches off at a pet hotel that cares for their friendly canines in a five-star environment -- pet-themed television shows optional.

In the mahogany paneled lobby of the PetSmart PetHotel, which just opened in the Washington suburb of Bethesda, the pets' human "parents" line up to plunk down 23 dollars plus tax for each night their pooch stays.

The doggie hotel is nothing like kennels of yore: in this inn there is lactose-free ice cream, indoor recreation, and for 10 more dollars a night, pooch can stay in a roomier "suite" with a television set showing an "animal related movie all day," said Vince Malanaphy, who manages the Bethesda PetsHotel.

"It helps them to relax and to adjust as they are used to hearing TV at home," Malanaphy says.

In one "suite" a little white poodle named Bijou is lost in the embrace of Morpheus with "Little Nemo" and his cartoon friends swimming by in an eternal loop on the TV set.

A stay at "Doggie Day Camp" without the overnight goes for 20 dollars the day.

Half of the boarders come every day. "It's better than leaving them at home alone," said Cyra, one of the pet "mothers," as she drops off her Labrador and her poodle for Day Camp before running off to the office. Here "they can socialize," she said.

For potty breaks there is a 20 square meter (215 square foot) "relief room" complete with a plastic tree. "For security reasons, no outdoor walking," says Malanaphy.

Meredith, in charge of animal recreation, says that if dogs "are aggressive or play too rough, we give them a time out in a cage" for 15 minutes. "After twice, they get the message," she says.

The Bethesda site has room for 180 dogs and 26 cats. Cats stay in plexiglass cages known as "kitty cottages" for a mere 14 dollars plus tax a night, which includes 15 minutes of TLC -- Tender Loving Care, otherwise known as petting.

The Phoenix, Arizona-based PetSmart Inc. launched the pet hotel concept three years ago and it is "the fastest growing sector" of the pet business, said spokesman Bruce Richardson. "Now we have 32 hotels; we anticipate 240 by 2010," he said.

Gina Martin, a consumer retail analyst at Wachovia Bank, sees only growth in the pet care industry.

"General spending for pets is growing at an extraordinary pace," said Martin. "There is a trend for the treatment of the pet as another human being."

Americans spend nearly 40 billion dollars a year on their household pets -- 30 percent more than five years ago. The figure is close to what Americans spend on toys for children -- 48 billion dollars -- and more than twice the 17 billion spent on cosmetics, Martin said.

Morning has broken
Chirping birds,humming bees.
Sunlight filtering in
Sound of the Alarm
Soft touch of a hand
Eyes will not open
Just want to sleep

Thoughts of running late
I climb out of bed.
Shower and dress
Hot cup of coffee
My morning begins.

On the road again
Music interrupted,
Sounds of sirens, ambulance
People crying, holding hands
Someones life taken.
The morning had just begun
Nitefall will never arrive.

Sisters Mary Catherine, Maria Theresa, Katherine Marie Rose Frances, & Novice Mary Kathleen left the Conventon on a trip to St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City and were sight-seeing on a Tuesday in July.

It was hot and humid in town and their traditional garb was making them so uncomfortable. They decided to stop in at Patty McGuire's Pub for a cold soft drink.

Patty had recently added some special legs to his barstools which were the talk of the fashionable eastside neighborhood

All 5 Nuns sat up at the bar and were enjoying their Cokes when Monsignor Riley entered the bar through the front door with Father McGinty for a cold drink when they were shocked and almost fainted at what they saw

Lying on the couch
Sad and in pain.
Wishing things were different.
Everyday seems to be the same.

He made himself a sandwich.
Did not even offer to share
Just ate it and left
Like I was not even there.

Sometimes I am invisible.

Today before you think of saying an unkind word
Think of someone who can't speak
Before you complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat

Before you complain about your husband or wife
Think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion
Today before you complain about life
Think of someone who went too early to heaven

Before you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires children but they're barren
Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep
Think of the people who are living in the streets
Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet
And when you are tired and complain about your job
Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
Remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive and still around

Life is a gift
Live it.
Enjoy it..
Celebrate it..
And fulfill it..



magical spin on a summer day

Friday, July 14, 2006


We walk along the muddy road, my hand clenched tightly in my mothers, kicking up
sand beneath me, some of it even getting into my sandals and making me laugh. It was a beautiful sunny day and more important it was the day of the fair. Every year I loked forward to this special outing that I had with my mother. As we get closer I can see the rainbow colored tents against the blue sky, the smell of the animals and food all blended into one. , along the way there are vendors displaying toys, clothes, paintings, animals , balloons and cotton candy. Loud music fills the air along with the voices of children laughing and mothers screaming to make their children behave.

We pass by the games, I ask if we can play some, my mother tells me to hurry up, the money has to last us the whole day and not spent on foolish things like games. She stops by a needlework stall displaying cross stiched hand towels."Beautiful isn't it" she says. I am dis interested, my eyes wander to the merry -go-round. the shiny knobs glisten in the sun, I can smell the paint of the freshly painted horses, different colors with silver mettalic trim. the blue horse catches my eye, this is the horse I want to go on. I am brave enough to ride on this one alone, I purchase a ticket and run towards the blue horse and get up on it. The horses start to move and they go round and round, taking my feet off the ground and I can feel the wind blowing through my hair.You chase the horses around and around,you are still unable to cath them. The weightlessness that I felt could not be explained. I wish it would not stop. I only had enough money for one more ride, the last ride that was usually at the end of the day.

As night falls in the fair grounds there is only one last thrill, the Giant Wheel. It is essentially a vertical merry -go- round. Now a days kids want wilder rides , rides that give you the sense of imminent death. But for me the giant wheel did just that. We walk up the ramp together my mother and I. Holding her hand tight fearful but pretending to be brave. We climb on to the bench, my mother looks intense , I know that this is not her best ride but she is on it, for me. I look up to her and she smiles. I am re assured. The motor starts to humm and the wheel starts to turn and we go high above and it stops to load another passenger, from above I can see the colored lights and the people below. The wheel starts to turn, the bench sways and we pick up speed. we go whirling around, my stomach turns when we drop down . Nothing like the rise and fall of the wheel , you are raised away from the earth and dropped back again. It is a sheer delight , a mixture of fear and excitement. It eventually slows down and the ride ends and so does summer. When I look back so much has changed, new rides, new things but the Giant wheel or Ferris wheel as some call it remains the same. And with each turn I am transported back to a day in my childhood.

Meet this week's REAL hotties:

The REAL hot 100 highlights young women are smart, savvy, and actively trying to make the world a better place. This week's 2006 REAL hotties fought Abercrombie & Fitch -- and won! Because of their REALLY hot Girlcott, A&F pulled demeaning t-shirts from their shelves. How hot is that? Meet the Girlcott Girls:

The Girlctt Girls Who are they? The "Girlcott Girls," ages 13-18, Pittsburgh, PA
What makes them REALLY hot? "Give me something to scream about!" is just what Abercrombie & Fitch did for 24 young girls after releasing a line of female t-shirts containing this sexually charged phrase along with some other sexist and racist messages, including, "Who needs brains when you have these?" "I hope you can make more then I can spend," and "Last night I had a nightmare I was a brunette." These t-shirts sparked a feminist uproar in this group of teens, and they decided to take action! The group of 24 REALLY hot girls originally came together to learn to be grantmakers, in a youth program called "Girls as Grantmakers" run by The Women and Girls Foundation of Southwest Pennsylvania. The girls went big with their fight against Abercrombie, waging a national Girlcott against A&F's sexist slogans. Supported by Heather Arnet, the Foundation's Executive Director, the teenagers launched what became a cause celebre and a successful social action. The Girlcott garnered national attention through radio and television-- and more than 23,000 stories about it appeared online! As a result, A&F pulled the demeaning t-shirts from the shelves and agreed to meet with the Girlcott group at A&F headquarters to discuss how the company could incorporate more empowering t-shirts for women.

As you know, looking to the media for positive images of young women is no easy task. We are here to celebrate these women and their accomplishments how hot SMART can be:I thought it was really smart of them to stand up for what is right and not support a company that was degrading women. they were all teenagers yet they were able to make a change.

MUMBAI, India (CNN) -- A series of seven explosions killed at least 145 people on crowded commuter trains and stations Tuesday evening in the Indian financial capital of Mumbai, police said.

Officials said 250 to 300 people were injured in the blasts in the city's western suburbs as commuters made their way home. All seven blasts came within an 11-minute span, between 6:24 and 6:35 p.m. (8:54 and 9:05 a.m. ET).

There was some confusion about the number of dead and injured as information was compiled from hospitals and explosion sites in Mumbai, the west Indian seaport previously called Bombay.

I was really sad to hear about this. my prayers and thoughts are with all the people there. I hope all my blogger friends in Mumbai are safe. My thoughts are with the families who have lost a loved one. My prayers for the ones who are injured.

'Homely' bride prompts lawsuit

Family of 'handsome' son claims fraud in arranged marriage

I read this article in the worldnetdaily and could not believe this was happenning in the 21st century. It is just sad that people can behave this way. Imagine how the girl feels while all this is going on. would like to know what you think?

Citing the potential bride's protruding teeth, bad complexion and poor English, a family in Massachusetts called off an arranged marriage and filed a lawsuit for damages.

The Hindu family, residing in Belchertown, Mass., had agreed to an arrangement proposed by Hindu friends in Maryland to marry their niece, who lives in India, the Springfield Republican newspaper reported.

But the father of the groom-to-be, Vijai B. Pandey, 60, filed suit after family members saw the selected bride in New Delhi last August. The Pandeys, according to the lawsuit, were "extremely shocked to find ... she was ugly ... with protruded bad teeth, and couldn't speak English to hold a conversation." The woman's complexion also was cited.

The civil suit against Lallan and wife Kanti Giri of Boyds, Md., seeks $200,000 in damages. The charges include fraud, conspiracy and violation of civil rights resulting in emotional distress, the Massachusetts paper reported.

Lallan Giri said the family pleads "not guilty, 120 percent."

While the Giri's current attorney had no comment, their former lawyer, Matthew R. Hertz, claimed the Pandey mischaracterized the original plan.

"It was more of an informal 'would you like to meet her' ... no money ever changed hands that would require reimbursement," Hertz told the Springfield daily.

When the Giris initially proposed the marriage, the lawsuit states, the Pandeys noted Pranjul was handsome, personable and spoke English, and asked if the young woman was "equally beautiful ... and a good match."

The complaint contends the Giris assured the Pandeys the woman was comparable and would learn English. The Giris allegedly agreed to compensate Vijai Pandey "for everything," if their niece was found unsuitable.

The Pandeys received a photo of the potential bride but said they "couldn't tell much" from it. They followed up, however, with long telephone calls to India and sent money for a passport in anticipation of her eventual move to the U.S.

The lawsuit says Vijai Pandey's wife Lalita, their daughter Pramila and Pranjul, went to India last August to finalize the wedding. The Pandeys arranged for the bride-to-be, her mother and her sister to rendezvous with them in New Delhi.

The marriage was called off after an Aug. 22 meeting.

Vijai Pandey claims the Giris knew all along the young woman "was homely and unsuitable and no match for Pranjul."

The Giris have refused to give Pandey any money.

Pandey has filed a number civil complaints since the 1980s against defendants such as Massachusetts judges and lawyers, an insurance company and others, the Springfield paper said.

It used to be intense
Nothing else mattered.
No walls, no boundaries
Strong like the wind, piercing hearts
Feeling ecstacy and joy.

Now little is felt, no patience, no kindness
There is no special smile
There is no longing or belonging.
He is there, she is here
They are like two different people
Going through life as one.
The world sees them differently
only they know that they are far gone.
Where is the love.?

Does/Could Money buy Happiness?

I read this article in the L.A.Times last week and began to wonder if this study made sense When I look at people who do not have money to even have the bare neccesities of life, I cant imagine them having a better attitude than the person who has money.I know that money cannot buy happiness but it sure can help alleviate hunger, sickness and poverty. I can only imagine how sad the mother of a sick child feels when she is unable to get the best treatment available to cure her child, most of which is accessible to the person with money. I find it hard to believe that the everyday stressors of the rich and poor are alike. May be I am missing something here. I would be interested to hear what you think.

MELVILLE, N.Y. — A psychologist at Stony Brook University on Long Island, collaborating with scientists at other institutions, has discovered what philosophers have long known: Money doesn't make people happier.

Yet the perception that it does continues to motivate people to want more and do more to get more.

In a study that appears today in the journal Science, Arthur Stone, vice chairman of Stony Brook's department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, working with scientists at Princeton University, the University of Michigan and UC San Diego, explore the intangible relationship between money and happiness.

"It's mostly illusory," Stone said. "When you look at people's actual experience, the rich are not happier than others. And if they are, it has little to do with the money they have."

For decades, psychologists would ask people whether they thought others with more money were happier. Of course, they said.

Stone's latest techniques for measuring real-life experiences include a fly-on-the-wall approach, an electronic writing pad that beeps randomly throughout the day to get the volunteer to fill out a mood diary and questionnaires that reconstruct yesterday's experiences.

What he came to realize is that people asked to imagine a future with money, whether for themselves or others, always tend to exaggerate the importance of this single change in circumstance.

He explained that people forget that the everyday stressors and joys of life go on, money or not. "Having a lot of money or a big house has little to do with a person's daily mood," which ebbs and flows depending on the individual and the events of a given day. This is a very different picture than what emerges when people are asked the global question: Does/could money buy happiness?

In the latter case, Stone and his colleagues, including Princeton's Daniel Kahneman, who won a Nobel Prize in economic sciences in 2002, say people tend to exaggerate the benefits of an imagined monetary gain.

"Such questions elicit a global evaluation of one's life," the authors wrote. "Increases in income have been found to have mainly a transitory effect on individuals' reported life satisfaction."

This tendency to think that the grass is greener on the other side is, in psychological parlance, a "focusing illusion."

The reason for the difference between perception and reality is that thinking about the future triggers a cognitive process that exaggerates the positive and the negative.

"People forget that all of the other things in their life don't change," Stone said. "Even in the new circumstances, you will still be the same person with the same problems."

In fact, others have shown that those with a high family income tend to report more intense negative emotions and greater anxiety than those with lower incomes.

What do you think. Does/could money buy Happiness?

I love him so dearly
Sometimes I dont know why
Even though the years roll by,
I remain still mystified.

There are days that go by
without a care or thought.
I ask myself, Is this love?
Because I am distraught.

Be patient and kind
I tell myself.
He has his reasons too
It is the selfish part in me
That always thinks,
its not me, its you.

I know my love for him
Will stand the test of time.
Because I consider him
My best friend
Untill the end of time.
