And so I talk about the weather....

UPDATE: Tropical Storm 'Henry' enters PAR
'Henry' at 880 km East of Guiuan, Eastern Samar as of 10:00 a.m.

Weather Bureau PAGASA says the tropical storm east of northern Mindanao has entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) and was named “Henry”.
At 10:00 AM today, the center of Tropical Storm 'Henry' was estimated based on all available data at 880 km East of Guiuan, Eastern Samar (10.8°N, 134.6°E).
'Henry' has maximum sustained winds of 65 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 80 kph. It is forecast to move North Northwest at 7 kph.
PAGASA, however, says Tropical Storm 'Henry' will not yet affect any part of the country.
It also doesn't look like it will be making landfall. Instead, it appears headed between Taiwan and Southern Japan.
Tropical Storm 'Henry' is expected to be at 970 km East of Borongan, Eastern Samar by tomorrow morning and at 1000 km East of Daet, Camarines Norte by Sunday morning.
By Monday morning, it is expected to be at 700 km East of Calayan.

Today's forecast
'Henry' is still too far to directly affect the Philippines, but Mindanao could begin to feel its effects by Sunday, with provinces north of that getting drenched as the system moves up.
For now, the southwest monsoon is affecting the western section of Luzon, but forecasters are looking at how 'Henry' interacts with it. They're also monitoring rains associated with this system, especially in elevated areas and those prone to flooding.
Metro Manila, Central Luzon, CALABARZON and the provinces of Mindoro and Palawan will have occasional rains.
Cebu may experience a thunderstorm within the next 12 hours.
Considering how Typhoon 'Glenda' saturated some areas recently, more rains could mean possible flashfloods and landslides.
Metro Manila could be feeling monsoon rains from that system by Sunday or Monday, something along the lines of Typhoon 'Maring' in August last year.

If someone is heavily into ego-gratification, or invested in blaming, punishing or misunderstanding you, there is little you can do at the conscious level to change their mind. Instead, speak to their soul in the light of love and forgiveness. Release the situation and move on. Those who are deeply entrenched in the ego and feeding off the short-lived power of punishing may continue to milk this past situation but when you disable it by moving on, their power fades.

Hi Yor! Are things back to normal or do you have another storm brewing. Looks like it must be your rainy season.

We have had a break in the heat for several days now. Wish it would hold out longer.

I found that art sculpture farm that I had mentioned and have been dropping off a photo here and there out in the blogs as they will not all fit in my new blog entry. Here is one for you! The media used in this one seems a bit strange.

I once posted in my blog above the words true love is different from lust ^_^ i found something to support it LOL here it goes

Was it love or lust at first sight? Science can tell based on eye movement
Eye movements may reveal if a person is feeling romantic love or sexual desire.

Wanna know if that special person is in love with you? Play close attention to their gaze.
Researchers at the University of Chicago in the US asked male and female volunteers from the University of Geneva in Switzerland to see a series of pictures of couples interacting, and say if they thought the couple was romantically involved. Then, they showed them black-and-white images of attractive individuals of the opposite sex who were looking directly at the camera. Each time they saw one of these photographs, they had to tell as quickly as possible whether they felt romantic love or sexual desire for the person.
Because the participants responded quite quickly, and almost with no hesitation, the researchers believe the human brain can differentiate between the two feelings rapidly. How did the researchers know the volunteers weren%u2019t lying?
As part of the study, they tracked the eye movements of every participant and discovered that when they reported sexual desire, their eyes tended to move from the face to the rest of the body. If they reported romantic love, their gaze was fixed on the face.
%u201CAlthough little is currently known about the science of love at first sight or how people fall in love, these patterns of response provide the first clues regarding how automatically attentional processes, such as eye gaze, may differentiate feeling of love from feeling of desire toward strangers%u201D, said lead author of the study, neuroscientist Stephanie Cacioppo, in a news release.
Although the study means very little for those out there going on dates, the results could help psychiatrists and couple therapists develop better diagnostic methods. As neuroscientist John Cacioppo, co-author of the study, explained in the release, knowing how to identify eye patterns that are specific to love or lust can help in the development of measurable indicators that can tell if a person is romantically involved or not.
The results of the study were published in the journal Psychological Science.

LOL so there... recall what you were looking when you looked at your lovie dovie's picture. hahahaha . ummm is it counted as lust looking at someone's hands holding a slice of pizza ??? well i look at my loviedovie's picture on the face only. and one picture holding a yummy food i looked from face to the hands. ummm does that count as lust??

Hong Kong (CNN) -- After wreaking damage on the Philippines over Tuesday and Wednesday, a newly intensified Typhoon Rammasun is bearing down on Hainan and Guangdong provinces in southern China.
The storm, which was downgraded as it passed over the Philippines, gained strength again over the South China Sea and is now battering Hainan, with its inner eye wall hugging the island's coast.
Now categorized by the China Meteorological Administration as a super typhoon, Rammasun made landfall on the island province of Hainan at around 1.30 p.m (1.30 a.m Eastern) Friday after veering westwards.
Super typhoons are categorized as having sustained winds of 150 mph (241 km/h) or higher.
Typhoon Rammasun's pathTyphoon Rammasun's path
Typhoon Rammasun now category 5
The Administration issued a 'red' typhoon warning, the highest of four color-coded warning levels. It is the first time this year the signal has been raised. Authorities in the region are on high alert.
"Its intensity when landing will reach force 15 to 16 (50 to 55m/s)," the bulletin said, prior to the storm reaching Hainan.
The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) based in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, tracked the typhoon as moving in a northwesterly direction, passing over the northern tip of Hainan and the Leizhou peninsula. The Center defines a super typhoon as having sustained winds of 130 kt; as of 11 a.m. local time (11 p.m Eastern), it was monitoring winds at 125 kt.
At 2 p.m local time (2 a.m ET) Hong Kong's government observatory estimated the super typhoon to be around 242 miles (390 km) southwest of the city. It was not expected to affect the city beyond strong winds and rain.
Should Rammasun hit the mainland as expected, the storm is expected to produce strong gales -- which may top 93 mph (150 km/h) -- heavy rain and tidal surges.
Given the rapid escalation in the storm's strength -- from a category one to a category five -- it is unclear how comprehensive preparations for this storm have been in the areas likely to be affected the most.
Shipping in the region has been suspended, as have some flights, including in Hainan, which is a popular holiday destination. Trains in Guangdong bound for Hainan have been halted in the provincial capital Guangzhou, and Hainan's high-speed railway has also had operations suspended, according to China's state-run news agency.
China's National Meteorological Center also said that inland areas of some provinces, including Yunnan, Hubei and Henan would experience rainstorms. The NMC warned of flooding in cities and landslides in mountain areas.

54 dead, 1M affected in wake of 'Glenda'
State of calamity declared in at least 8 areas

ANC %u2013 Wed, Jul 16, 2014
At least 54 have been confirmed dead due to the onslaught of Typhoon Glenda.
The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council says some of the fatalities were from Quezon, Rizal, Marinduque, Cavite, Camarines Sur, Bulacan, Zambales, Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, and Northern Samar.
The NDRRMC says 10 are injured due to the typhoon, two of them were electrocuted.
Meantime, in Quezon City, two men had a near brush with death after some walls collapsed due to strong winds brought by Typhoon Glenda. (WATCH: 2 men survive after being pinned by collapsed walls)
Obando, Bataan, Muntinlupa, Cavite, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay, and Gumaca, Quezon have all declared a state of calamity because of Typhoon Glenda.
A 60-day price freeze is in effect in these areas, which will cover items such as canned goods, processed milk, coffee, laundry soap, detergents, candles, bread, and salt.
Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla told ANC at least three people were killed in his province, including an 11-month-old baby.
The typhoon also knocked out power and caused massive damage to Cavite's banana industry.
In a phone interview, Remulla said, "We have fallen trees maybe in the 10,000 range in all over, especially in the upland. I think the entire banana industry was wiped out in the province. All the major thoroughfares are 100% passable. And there are no floods that occured."
Governor Remulla believes the worst of the storm is over.
He says, evacuees have already begun to return to their homes.
Meantime, Albay was the first to feel the wrath of Glenda as strong winds began battering the province, Tuesday afternoon. WATCH: Why CamSur and Albay are under state of calamity
Office of Civil Defense Regional Director Bernardo Alejandro says Albay suffered moderate damage and that they have yet to receive any report of casualties and injuries. Alejandro also says all roads in the province remain passable and most parts are flood free.
Some Albay evacuees have also started coming home.
Power and communication have also been affected by Glenda's powerful winds. (WATCH: Power down in Camarines Sur)
The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines says all of Southern Luzon, from Pasig to Bicol is without power.
NGCP connects Meralco and other distributors to power plants, which means even if distributors are able to repair their lines, power may still not flow from the plants.
The line connecting Luzon to the Visayas is also cut.
Meantime, Meralco says its franchise areas were severely affected by Typhoon Glenda. Latest figures from Meralco show over 5-million customers are without power.
The massive power outages have disrupted services of telcos in areas affected by Typhoon Glenda.
Globe says its mobile services were affected in Albay, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, Marinduque, Masbate, Quezon, and Sorsogon.
Globe says cellsites are equipped with alternate power sources such as batteries and gensets that can be used during prolonged loss of power.
Meanwhile, PLDT and SMART say many of their facilities rely on commercial power though key installations of both fixed line and mobile networks have standby power.
The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines says Typhoon Glenda damaged two aircrafts owned by Singapore Airlines and Malaysian Airlines parked at the NAIA Terminal 1.

CAAP says a Boeing 777-200 aircraft of Singapore Airlines damaged its left wing after it hit one of the air bridges of Terminal 1.

Meanwhile, a Boeing 737-800 aircraft of Malaysian Airlines damaged its fuselage after it turned some 45 degrees to its side, hitting a service stair.

Meanwhile, the operations at the NAIA were suspended for about four hours this morning.

Several domestic flights of Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, Tiger Airways, and AirAsia Zest were cancelled due to the bad weather.
The water level at the Marikina River is going down as rains have dissipated.
Though Marikina Mayor Del De Guzman is expecting the accumulated rainfall from the Rizal area to reach Marikina soon, as of 11:25 a.m., the water level at the Marikina River is at 15.9 meters.
WATCH: Residents evacuate as Marikina River swells
The Marikina Public Information Office says all 8 of their floodgates have been open since 10 a.m.
Earlier, the water level at the Marikina River reached 16 meters, prompting officials to send out an Alert Level 2, urging residents to prepare for evacuation.
There was no elecricity to turn on the emergency siren, so ambulances went around to warn residents.
By noon, weather in Bataan started to clear up, and ABS-CBN reporter Jeff Canoy says the winds have subsided considerably.
Glenda started battering Bataan at 9:55 a.m. Strong winds have uprooted trees along the national highway, blocking traffic in several parts.
According to the PDRRMC, more than 4,000 families are now in evacuation centers. Many of them were from coastal barangays in Balanga, Limay, Mariveles, Orani, Pilar, and Samal.
There's also no electricity in the entire province for precautionary measures.
Preemptive evacuations were carried out in Navotas ahead of the expected high tide amid the continued effects of Typhoon 'Glenda'.
Navotas Mayor Johnrey Tiangco says they began the evacuations on Tuesday. They continue to monitor communities in coastal barangays.
He notes, floodgates are open and 39 pumping stations are ready to deal with the floods once the tide rises.
Meantime, rescue equipment are also on hand for any eventuality.
Power went out in Navotas early this morning as the CAMANAVA area dealt with strong winds and rains from Typhoon 'Glenda'.

Hi L,
those photos were shared in fb. We felt the strong winds and the heavy rain but not the same as those Luzon. I am here in Central Visayas. A possible typhoon is going to enter PAR and if it will not change it's course it will hit Mindanao this time.

Some amazing photos in #65, especially the first one. I am so glad that none of those scenes were captured by your camera, because that would mean you had bad troubles from the typhoon. I don't know where in the Philippines you are, but I hope that no storm surges are threatening you and no trees blown down on your home.

This ended up being a violent typhoon for the Philippines

Indeed Max. I heard there are 6 casualties reported so far. They described it as very fast moving and gone with in an hour and a half but it brought a lot of rain and strong winds.

6.1 Magnitude quake hits parts of Mindanao

Agence France-Presse
Posted at 07/14/2014 5:14 PM | Updated as of 07/14/2014 5:14 PM
MANILA - A strong 6.4-magnitude earthquake was detected at sea in the southern Philippines on Monday, the US Geological Survey said, but there were no reports of damage and no tsunami warning issued.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology measured the quake at 6.1 magnitude.

The quake was detected 88 kilometers (55 miles) southeast from the coastal town of Don Marcelino but was barely noticed by residents, said the chief government seismologist Renato Solidum.

"It is not alarming," he told AFP.

The quake was tectonic in origin and had a depth of about 10 kilometers, he added.

Signal no. 1 up in 6 areas due to 'Glenda'
Posted at 07/14/2014 7:09 AM | Updated as of 07/14/2014 7:09 AM
MANILA – Tropical storm ''Glenda'' (international name ''Rammasun'') is expected to make landfall on Wednesday in the Quezon-Bicol area, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

Due to Glenda, public storm warning signal number 1 has been hoisted over Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, Albay, Sorsogon, and Northern Samar. These areas should expect 30 - 60 kph winds in the next 36 hours.

PAGASA said Glenda was spotted 750 kilometers east of Virac, Catanduanes as of 4 a.m. Monday. It was moving west at 30 kilometers per hour.

PAGASA weather forecaster Samuel Duran said at its current speed and direction, Glenda will make landfall somewhere in Quezon Province and Bicol. He said a storm signal may be raised over Metro Manila once Glenda makes landfall.

Glenda also grew stronger, now packing maximum sustained winds of 80 kph near the center and gusts of up to 95 kph. An estimated rainfall of 7.5 – 15 millimeters per hour (moderate - heavy) is expected within the storm's 400-km diameter.

Duran added Glenda may intensify into a typhoon before making landfall.

Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon (habagat) will be enhanced once Glenda makes landfall, Duran said.

Fishing boats and other small vessels are advised not to venture out into the Eastern seaboards of Luzon and Visayas.

PAGASA said for Monday, Bicol Region and Eastern Visayas will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.

 Hope you are well despite the rainy weather! Just dropped by to see what was going on with you. Looks like you have been painting the blog pink with colors! You have been experimenting with colors - some are easily read while some are not quite so easy to read. Takes a lot of patience to do the color thing. For me I was not very successful with it - the time I tried. Seemed everything came out green or purple-grey. Your animated signature gif is neat.

Photosynthesis photographed for the first time
Researchers at ASU capture a 'molecular movie' of water splitting into oxygen, protons and electrons.
The photosynthetic process visualized in the new study involves the moment when water molecules and light combine in a cluster of metal including four manganese atoms and one calcium atom. The cluster is bound to a protein in the plant called PSII (Photosystem II), which catalyzes the process. Four flashes of light allow two water molecules to become one oxygen molecule, four hydrogen ions and four hydrogen electrons.

The researchers have been studying photosynthesis to mimic it in artificial systems. ASU's Center for Bio-Inspired Solar Fuel, which supported the study, is trying to develop what it calls an "artificial leaf" that could generate electricity. ASU Regents' professor Devens Gust said in a news release that one of the major challenges in creating the artificial leaf is "discovering an efficient, inexpensive catalyst for oxidizing water to oxygen gas, hydrogen ions and electrons. Photosynthetic organisms already know how to do this, and we need to know the details of how photosynthesis carries out the process using abundant manganese and calcium."

The current research will allow chemists to move forward in creating artificial photosynthetic catalysts, which can convert create fuels using sunlight. "The research ... gives us, for the very first time, a look at how the catalyst changes its structure while it is working," Gust said in a news release.

The next stage of the research, as Fromme hinted, is to go beyond the snapshot to create "molecular movies" of the entire process by which plants make the oxygen the rest of the world depends upon. This, in turn, will further the research into fuels that can be generated by photosynthetic-like processes. ASU graduate student Shibom Basu, one of the lead authors of the new paper, called this "the most exciting aspect of the work."

The research was funded by a broad coalition of organizations, including the Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health.

Get ready for armoured underwear made from spider silk
Researchers in the US have genetically engineered silkworms to produce spider silk, and they're calling their commerical product Monster Silk.
Cost effective production of spider silk is pretty costly when you get it the regular way. You know, from a spider. But now scientists at the US-based Kraig Biocraft Laboratories have figured out how to get spider silk from the silkworm.
Because spider silk is stronger and lighter than the fibre used in most fabrics, scientists have been exploring a wide range of application for it, including body armour, medical sutures, and according to Jordan Golson at Wired, even underwear.
But not just any underwear, underwear for soldiers that can protect them from explosions. This is because spider silk won't melt and stick onto the skin, even when exposed to extreme heat. And because it's so fine, it can keep any wounds clean by blocking out dirt and sand particles.
“Our production system is the only commercially viable technology for producing spider silk,” Kim Thompson, Kraig’s founder and CEO, told Wired.
They've managed to get the silkworms to produce spider silk is by inserting specific genes from spiders into the silkworm's chromosomes. The silkworms then produce a fibre that's identical to spider silk. All it takes to adjust the silk's flexibility and strength is shifting the DNA sequence around.
"Kraig’s current production run is largely headed to Warwick Mills, a specialty textile manufacturer that focuses on protective applications like body armor and fireproof wearables," says Golson at Wired. "They are making the first Monster Silk textiles, and their research will lay the groundwork for the first commercial sales as soon as next year."

Your Blog is Nice

OR~ Ha ha ha sooo you got that right. *wink* one (1) point for Orange! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Briar, Thanks for stopping by.. the poem is a vision i saw trying to make it something possitive.
I did not want to work today not feeling good. I am having fever and etc. Tomorrow is my Papa's death anniversary and my mama wanted everyone home we will go to the cemetery to visit. But I also think she wants to be with a lot of people on this remembering a tearful day for all of us. It is hard for those left behind.
BTW I have a friend who wanted to join the fllcker group but she is not from WU. I told her I will ask the moderators if it is ok for her to join us.^_^

Very hot and lots of rain -- that is a recipe for misery.

Sudden and severe changes can bring on illness, plus many diseases thrive in humid heat.

That is a nice poem in #38. So even when it is hot and wet, still your creative mind can think of beauty. Take care!

It was raining very hard last night for hours ~ it was very hot during the day. I guess it is the reason of people having fever. Sudden change of temperature. it brings headache and nausea too.

Once again.. I waved my hand
from the west to the south
from the ground a water sprout
here on a tiny land I stand
the water goes up and down in circle
I see water all around
end and beginning of life's cycle

Lawless race to the bottom of the ocean must end

(CNN) -- The human footprint on the ocean, from the shoreline to the deepest abyss, is growing.
It is evident in over-exploited and collapsing fish stocks, it washes up as oil and garbage on our beaches, and even ends up contaminating the fish on our plates.
The idea that our seas are so vast that they will absorb anything we throw into them and replenish anything we take out of them must be consigned to history.
Today, the health of the ocean is in decline. We urgently need to clean up our act, and restore and protect the ocean..

I do hope Neoguri misses you and just brings a little extra rain, though I saw I report on the Sunday evening news, just a few minutes ago, and it showed Neoguri heading first for the Philippines before it goes to Japan. Be safe!

O_Ohuh! philippines before Japan? I gathered it is category 4 and may reach category 5 when it heats up when it pass the ocean (category 5 again?) Y_Y . so if i go offline for days that means we lost power, lost intternet and etc. but will make sure someone gets a msg from me from any resources and open doors we both have will ask this person to post something here.

Mam Ida, that is a wonderful story about the smileys. So often, it is the simplest thing that makes the biggest difference.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) %u2014 A strong typhoon was blowing over the Pacific Ocean in the northeastern Philippines on Sunday and may induce heavy rains, but is too far off to hit land, officials said.

Typhoon Neoguri was blowing with sustained winds of 185 kilometers (115 miles) per hour and gusts of 220 kph (136 mph) late Sunday about 840 kilometers (522 miles) off Cagayan, a rice- and tobacco-producing province, said government weather forecaster Glaiza Escullar.

The storm is expected to blow northwest and will be about 500 kilometers (310 miles) northeast of Batanes province in the Philippines' northern tip on Monday. It will then likely blow toward southern Japan later in the week, Escullar said.

Alexander Pama, who heads the Philippines' disaster-response agency, warned fishing boats and small sea vessels not to venture off the country's eastern coast.

While no public disaster warnings have been issued, officials said Neoguri would enhance the southwest monsoon and possibly bring heavy rains and thunderstorms to the northern Philippines. Pama urged landslide- and flood-prone northern villages to closely monitor weather reports.

Neoguri is the sixth storm to hit the country this year and the first of the rainy season, which began last month. About 20 typhoons and less powerful storms batter the Philippines each year, making it one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world.

The nation is still struggling to recover from Typhoon Haiyan, which killed at least 6,300 people, left more than 1,000 missing and displaced 4 million in the central Philippines last November.

I think I added that time thing. Thanks for stopping by. I hope the sun is going to shine today so i could have a sun shadow which i already have plans of what i should do and take shot.
About the Attitude thing.. I totally agree with you. My personality is that I am a person who never wanted negative things in life, negative thoughts, stressful thoughts and etc, but i do react in something negative and also when loved ones do something to threaten the relationship. Sometimes my sibling comments on my other sibling negatively and I react to pacify and then snap her from the thought. Always giving someone a benefit of the doubt is what I do most of the time but when jealousy comes in, my attitude changes to something ~ a reaction on what the other person is doing and i sometimes go overboard to hurt and anger my beloved and so He reacts depending on what my attitude on the moment is LOL.
When I was new to this office I am working, there were negative rumors and anger and competition and etc. among new and old employees. I was one of the new ones. One day I just got so stressed that i feel like having a head ache each time I report to work. I decided to do something and stabilize the situation and I self appointed my self to be the "equalizer". I printed small black and white round smiley ^_^ and roam around the office section by section pasting those tiny smileys on their desk, computer table etc .. even on the mirror in the toilets. Some noticed it immediately and others took days to notice it. I did it on purpose to paste them while someone sees me for I wanted them to know i did. Then each one asks who pasted this smiley here! the Janitor said Mam Ida did it ~ so i got visitors in our room and each time someone comes in i give them a big big smile and say in flirty way.... HIIIII! then they laugh and say hey did you put the smiley? I said did you smile back on the smiley? She said Oh It made me smile. I said it is a reminder to each one of us to smile and give smile for it is a start of a good and harmonious relationship here in the office since each one of us are still adjusting to each other's personality yet. My way of positively telling them we are not having a good relationship in the office. The situation did mellow down and the people started to understand each other. Months passed there was a new employee... She noticed those smiley all over and she asked me what's with the smiley thing? i said oh! it is for us to see someone smiling at us when nobody does - we see a smiley smiling at us. She said even at the comfort room? I said well ~ it is to remind you to smile when you see yourself in the mirror so you know how good you look when you smile and that's how other's see you when you smile.^_^ I never think smiling to someone starts a fight but think it could be a start of a good friendship or a good day and with all of these being said ~ I am going to get ready for work.. another manic Monday LOL. I hope you have a nice Sunday.

By the time you read this, it will be Monday morning. I hope you have a good week with lots of fun photo opportunities. Did you manage to visit your house in the mountains? I know you said that the rain might prevent your trip.

I don't know if I failed to notice before or if you recently added it, but the links for My Time and Somebody's Time in your header are very helpful. I can now click instead of doing arithmetic in my head or counting on my fingers. But it is good to exercise the brain, so first I figure out what I think your time is, then I click to see if I was right.

I also re-read the Discussions and this part I found really interesting: Don't get confused between my personality and my attitude - My personality is who i am, my attitude depends on who you are.
Those are the best definitions of personality and attitude that I have seen. Simple. And so very true. It explains in a way very easy to understand, why it is that I get along well with some people, even strangers, and other people make me feel and act in an irritable manner. True, sometimes we all have bad days. But I think now of my trip on 3 July.

I had some errands to do before I could play. At one place, where I got the oil changed in my car, one man made me smile, I found myself speaking with angry words at the second man, and then I chatted in a friendly way with the third man. I left there wondering why I felt angry with the second man. I could think of nothing, because his words were appropriate.

All of a sudden, when I read that bit about personality and attitude, I realized what the problem was. He had not listened to anything I said. He wanted to say what he wanted to say, he never really listened to one word I said, and at the end, he finished with "I don't know why you are angry with me, but I hope you have a better rest of the day." It does make me angry when someone thinks that nothing I have to say is worth listening to.

It is not my personality to be short-tempered or to speak angry words, but my attitude quickly responds in a negative way to someone who is too self-important to hear my words. Now I understand what happened with the three men at the oil change place.

Sometimes it takes reading or hearing someone else's words for an inner question to be answered. I feel better now. Thank you!

it seems to be a nice day today king sun is up but we are expecting a rainy weekend due to a tropical depression. I did not expect a very early text from my baby and he is always full of surprises as always. Spending quality time with our loved ones is something good and makes it a lovely day with all smiles.
