Black and white

This happened on TAM airlines.
A 50-something year old white woman arrived at her seat and saw that the passenger next to her was a black man. Visibly furious, she called the air hostess.
“What’s the problem, ma?” the hostess asked her.
“Can’t you see?” the lady said – “I was given a seat next to a black man. I can’t seat here next to him. You have to change my seat”
“Please, calm down, ma” – said the hostess.
“Unfortunately, all the seats are occupied, but I’m still going to check if we have any.”
The hostess left and returned some minutes later.
“Madam, as I told you, there isn’t any empty seat in this class- economy class. But I spoke to the captain and he confirmed that there isn’t any empty seat in the economy class. We only have seats in thefirst class.”
And before the woman said anything, the hostess continued
“Look, it is unusual for our company to allow a passenger from the economy class change to the first class. However, given the circumstances, the commandant thinks that it would be a scandal to make a passenger travel sat next to an unpleasant person.”
And turning to the black man, the hostess said: “Which means, Sir, if you would be so nice to pack your handbag, we have reserved you a seat in the first class…”
And all the passengers nearby, who were shocked to see the scene started applauding, some standing on their feet.”

Depressing Article


AND THEN IT IS WINTER
 
I FIRST STARTED READING THIS EMAIL & WAS READING FAST UNTIL I REACHED THE THIRD SENTENCE. I STOPPED AND STARTED OVER READING SLOWER AND THINKING ABOUT EVERY WORD. THIS EMAIL IS VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING. MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK. READ SLOWLY!
You know. . . time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams. 
But, here it is... the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise...How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go? I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like. 
But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting grey...they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me...but, I see the great change...Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant..but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be. Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will... I just fall asleep where I sit! 
And so...now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know, that when it's over on this earth...its over. A new adventure will begin! 
Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.
So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don't put things off too long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not! You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life...so, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!
"Life" is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one.
Remember "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
 
LASTLY, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:
 
TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU'VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU'LL EVER BE SO - ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.

Facebook



Facebook is a popular social networking website and is very popular for sharing and  connecting with friends, but there are many interesting things that you cannot do out of facebook.


Top 10 things you would never do out of Facebook:

  1. Congratulated for his birthday to strangers : not congratulate yourself the 5th neighbor the other side, that tell the facebook, certainly do not know him.
  2. Give your details to people you do not know : do not walk offering a wealth of information that everyone knows usurparte manage data for many things.
  3. Shouting your emotions: Facebook always asks what you’re thinking, but you say it?
  4. Lying.   With a computer involved, how it would be easy to say the occasional fib.
  5. Become a fan of everything . It looks like a virus! If someone becomes a fan, here are all. And in Facebook there is room for you to love or hate what you want from movies, music, actors, politicians, animals, people … the list is large. And you, how much you’re a fan?
  6. Do not greet your “friends.”  How many do you have in your list of Facebook?How many know in real life? Make it part of your social network, does not mean they are friends in real life, even as they are known, or maybe they know him, but out of Internet paralyzes you even think to say hello. Let’s test it: how many of your Facebook friends list, truly are?
  7. I like!  Is everything you like? If?
  8. Having a farm: maybe you do, but I think not.
  9. Writing (not to mention) badly about your boss or coworkers.  ’s clear that existed long before Facebook, we have tended to speak ill of people behind their backs certain (do not deny it), but it is very different in a private conversation to “shout” to the four winds in the state of Facebook.
  10. Presuming your drunkenness.  Probably you did with your friends in private, but since Facebook arrived, which is a kind of “chismógrafo” now all boast everything they do, even drunk.

For all the busy mothers and working women

Slow down mummy, there is no need to rush,
Slow down mummy, what is all the fuss?
Slow down mummy, make yourself a cup tea.
Slow down mummy, come spend some time with me.
Slow down mummy, let’s pull boots on for a walk,
Let’s kick at piles of leaves, and smile and laugh and talk.
Slow down mummy, you look ever so tired,
Come sit and snuggle under the duvet, and rest with me a while.
Slow down mummy, those dirty dishes can wait,
Slow down mummy, let’s have some fun – bake a cake!
Slow down mummy, I know you work a lot,
But sometimes mummy, it’s nice when you just stop.
Sit with us a minute, And listen to our day,
Spend a cherished moment,
Because our childhood won’t stay!
-R. Knight
