True Love – Part 1

True Love! We all dream of being in love with that significant other, at some point in our lives. Is it better to have loved once than not to have loved at all? If this is really the case, then how do we actually find true love? How can a man or a woman really get to the core of the whole relationship game? What are the rules of such a game?
More often than not, it is not uncommon to find that either one partner feels really strongly about the other, whilst the other just bides time because he or she is the only one “available” at the time.

The key to marriage and happily-ever-after, lies first and foremost, with finding the right person. A lot of folks believe that there may be just one unique individual for every person in the world. I however, beg to differ. Wherever one goes, there is always the possibility of meeting one or more persons who uniquely match our tastes – philosophically, culturally, materially, emotionally and of course, physically (those sure do come a dime a dozen).
Okay, let’s get down to brass tacks here. Why would one person be into another, whilst the other hardly misses a beat? There are a myriad of reasons, reasons which I will discuss in other articles. For now, we’d discuss the most fundamental one: Maybe he/she is not your “true love”.

This leads us to a definition of the same. What is true love? Simply put, true love is the epitome of all your needs and desires in the other person, to a large extent. To a large extent? I hear you ask. Surely, to a large extent, because you can NEVER meet another human being who perfectly epitomizes what you truly desire in a significant other. To a large extent, however, it is possible to find such a one, but only just so.
Let’s analyze the last bit of my discourse for instance. Twins born of the same womb would hardly always see eye to eye over the same issue. Husbands and wives, even after 50 years of marriage would still not see eye-to-eye on certain issues, yet they live together: happily, we hope. Hence, why wait for the perfect person?
Humans are basically emotional and whimsical creatures. We are not robots, cannot be programmed to do only the same things. The only way we discipline ourselves is via several years of repetition, till we perform almost by rote. Therefore, we can never be perfect. Not in everything. You can never get another man just the exact flavor, the exact shade, the exact build, the exact manner of laughter, the exact you name it. Even if heor she’s of pristine character, he may defer from his ways just because. Because what? Just because. BECAUSE WHAT? “CAUSE I FELT LIKE IT, OKAY?” Whimsical Creatures.
It could have been anything. The room temperature, the color of the sky, his boss may have spoken rudely to him, he got drenched in the rain, blah, blah, blah.
Okay, so don’t look for perfection. That’s the first general rule of finding true love. In further articles, I will expound further on Finding True Love.

Paying For ISP Internet Access

Happy 25th Birthday Internet
Happy 25th Birthday Internet

Choosing ISP services can be real tricky and the rule of thumb is to pay for those services that you only need. Instead of plunking down change for all the bells and whistles. The typical small business web-site, four to seven pages, could choose a virtual hosting service with multiple email addresses, cgi-bin access and a T3 connection from the Internet for $19 to $27 per month.

Most small businesses pick the managed server hosting packages which could range from $3.95 a month to $20 a month. As stated before, these hosting packages have all the administrative support that you need and all you have to worry about is the development of your web-site. You are given an FTP client to load your site to the internet.

Socket Security Certificates cost extra for secure transactions of the financial type through your web page and you expect to pay at least $40 to $80 per month. The setup fees can be expensive and cost as much as $55, and sometimes more if you order special features. Large companies and high volume web sites pay more for certain types of services.

Shop around and get the best deal for your business. You can get web hosting through the internet from anywhere but you have to really study the ISP’s and see what they offer.

A big concern in choosing an ISP should be the response time in case a server goes down. How does the server respond during high traffic times on the server? You would have to ask the ISP representative what their percentage ranking is as far as server downtime.

You can find some of these rankings on the internet by going to or use the Google search engine to rate the top ten ISP providers that have the best percentage of what the industry calls, “up” time according to their servers.

Schindler’s Way
by George Lunt

There is more than one way to actively fight tyranny. The obvious way is to stage a massive demonstration, where the protestors are subjected to being maced, beaten, shot and hauled off to jail by government police. If the demonstrators go against a well established tyrannical government, it may take years of well organized protests, and the heartache and pain associated with them, to achieve the desired objective.
Another, more subtle approach, was made famous by Steven Spielberg’s academy award winning movie “Schindler’s List.” The movie details how a German industrialist, Oskar Schindler, was able to save over a thousand Jews from being sent to death camps during World War II.
Before World War II, Krakow, Poland’s Jewish population numbered over 50,000. After Germany invaded Poland, Jews were herded into crowded ghettos, and faced all forms of abuse from the German occupation force. Jewish property and businesses were appropriated by the SS and sold to Nazi party members.
Schindler came to Poland in 1939 believing he could make a lot of money as a war profiteer. He quickly became friends with the local Gestapo leaders. He would supply them with money, women, and liquor. His connections helped him acquire a factory using Jewish labor. This factory produced enamel goods and munitions to supply the German front.
At first he seemed like a typical German industrialist, only concerned about profit and not really worried about the means used to get it. But Schindler’s actions proved to be very different. As more and more Jews began to be sent to death camps, Schindler began hiring more of them for his factory. He hired unskilled workers and falsely reported they had essential factory skills. He paid off the Nazis so they would allow certain people to work at his factory. He got some rich Jews to invest money in his factory in order to work there and be spared the holocaust. Schindler later used this money for everyone’s benefit.
In March of 1943, the Germans closed the Krakow ghetto. Jews were moved a Plaszow concentration camp just outside the city. Schindler’s Jews still continued to work at his factory. He even convinced the Germans to build a special sub-camp for his workers. By the summer of 1944, Plaszow was ordered closed and the Jews moved to Auschwitz to be liquidated. Schindler, through pleading and bribery of High German officials convinced the Germans to relocate his factory to a new site in Czechoslovakia. This is when he made the famous “Schindler’s list” of everyone that would be allowed to move to his new factory. He took a thousand Jews from Plaszow to Czechoslovakia. Other workers were added to his list of employees now and then for variety of reasons. During this time, Schindler spent all his money to protect his Jews and to pretend that his factory was essential to the German war effort. By May, 1945 the Russians liberated his factory. Schindler and his wife, fled to Argentina and took up farming. In 1958 he returned to Germany where he died in poverty in 1974.
Schindler is honored for the creative way that he manipulated the Germans for years and saved over a thousand lives in the process. Have you ever thought of how many people Schindler would have saved if he “stood up” directly against German oppression? My guess would be that he would have been shot instantly or would have wound up in a gas chamber at Auschwitz. His actions prove that it is not always prudent to “stand up” and “speak out” when fighting an overwhelmingly powerful enemy.
In these times, where corporate aliens have gained tremendous power over our lives, it makes more sense to use creative techniques, as Oskar Schindler did, to combat their oppression. Here are some examples of how Schindler’s techniques may be used in today’s world.
Corporate aliens are controlling most of today’s work environments. As a result, employees are being tracked, listened to, or watched. Everyone is constantly told to be more productive, even though, productivity profits only upper management. Productivity and quality meetings are commonplace. All corporate jobs have common harassment factors. To stand up for your rights in these environments will only get you fired. Instead, using Schindler’s techniques can be very helpful in maintaining your mental well being. Pretend it’s a joy to come to work every day. Build a strong friendship with your supervisor. Wine, dine and make him or her happy. Keep your resume up to date and use it to get a higher paying position when the opportunity presents itself. Make maximum use of your sick days and personal days. Find subtle ways of shifting the blame for any work related problems back to management. Don’t think of working as the equivalent to being in a concentration camp. Do anything within reason to secretly make your life less frustrating. Be creative.
Consider American companies like Google, Yahoo, and MSN in China. Could they really be trying to secretly help the government opposition? Are they really using Schindler’s tactics? If they are, for these tactics to be effective, they can’t publicize them. Does turning in a few dissidents mean they’ve become China’s pawn or are they really protecting thousands by turning in a few? Do we know enough to judge? Even if the companies themselves wholeheartedly collaborate with the government, could not employees of these companies use their company resources to secretly support the enemy? When we protest the actions of these companies, remember that if they did not establish their presence in China, using any subtle techniques to support the cause of freedom would not be possible.
Recently there has been a lot of talk about the US income tax being unconstitutional. Some people have gone to great lengths to interpret the constitution and prove that the income tax is against the law. Be that as it may, the government runs the country, and its interpretation of the constitution, in spite of what it really says, is that income tax is legal and failure to comply can result in fines and imprisonment. Some of the people that have stood up for their constitutional rights are currently serving time in federal prison. Why not use the Schindler approach? The government makes it easy to legally reduce taxes, with tax loopholes designed to help corporate America. Learn to use these tax loopholes effectively. There might even be instances where you can obtain an “under the table” income so that the IRS doesn’t know about it. If you look at how governments use tax money, you know that the amount of taxes they get from the common man is totally unfair. But, standing up to them will only result in more problems. Being creative can get much better results. Why go to prison?
As time goes on many “democratic” governments are demanding more and more individual rights. History has shown that when governments go too far, revolution results. Using corporate alien techniques, populations are being conditioned to worry more about the “World Series” or “Super Bowl” than their individual rights. Under these circumstances a revolution may never come, no matter how abusive the government gets. And if a revolution does come, the new government would usually be more oppressive than the one just overthrown. For an individual living in these times, the only way to obtain any kind of justice is to use Schindler’s techniques to secretly achieve his or her goals in the midst of government interference.

Unforgetable Christmas Story

Unforgetable Christmas Story

Quotes of a Christmas Story

#1 = Randy hates meatloaf.

 Randy: Meatloaf, smeatloaf, double-beatloaf. I hate meatloaf.

Dad: All right, I’ll get that kid to eat. Where’s my screw driver and my plumber’s helper? I’ll open up his mouth and I’ll shove it in.


#2 = 

I Triple-Dog-Dare You!

 Flick: Are you kidding? Stick my tongue to that stupid pole? That’s dumb!

Schwartz: That’s ’cause you know it’ll stick!

Flick: You’re full of it!

Schwartz: Oh yeah?

Flick: Yeah!

Schwartz: Well I double DOG dare you!

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): NOW it was serious. A double-dog-dare. What else was there but a “triple dare you”? And then, the coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare.

Schwartz: I TRIPLE-dog-dare you!

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): Schwartz created a slight breach of etiquette by skipping the triple dare and going right for the throat!

#3 = 

Be Sure To Drink Your…What?

After working hard to break a secret code that turned out to be a promotion

Ralphie: Be sure to drink your Ovaltine. Ovaltine? A crummy commercial? Son of a bitch!

#4 = 

The Leg Lamp Catastrophe.

Earlier in the movie, the father won a ‘leg lamp’ as an award. The following is after the mother accidentally breaks it.

Father: Don’t you touch that! You were always jealous of this lamp.

Mother: Jealous of a plastic…

Father: Jealous! Jealous because I WON.

Mother: That’s ridiculous. Jealous. Jealous of WHAT? That is… the ugliest lamp I have ever seen in my entire LIFE!

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): With as much dignity as he could muster, the Old Man gathered up the sad remains of his shattered major award. Later that night, alone in the backyard, he buried it next to the garage. Now I could never be sure, but I thought that I heard the sound of “Taps” being played, gently.

# 5 = 

Red Rider.

Ralphie: I want a Red Ryder carbine action two-hundred shot range model air rifle. Oooooooh!

Mother: No, you’ll shoot your eye out.

# 6 = 

Daddy’s Gonna Kill Ralphie!

 Mother: Randy? What’s wrong? What are you crying for?

Randy: Daddy’s gonna kill Ralphie!

Mother: No he’s not.

Randy: Yes he is!

Mother: No, I promise, Daddy is not going to kill Ralphie!

# 7 = 

Teacher’s Wisdom.

Teacher (Ms. Shields): Now I know that some of you put Flick up to this, but he has refused to say who. But those who did it know their blame, and I’m sure that the guilt you feel is far worse than any punishment you might receive. Now, don’t you feel terrible? Don’t you feel remorse for what you have done? Well, that’s all I’m going to say about poor Flick.

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): Adults loved to say things like that but kids knew better. We knew darn well it was always better not to get caught.

# 8 = 

Gifts From Your Distant Relatives.

After receiving a bunny outfit as a gift.

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): Aunt Clara had for years labored under the delusion that I was not only perpetually 4 years old, but also a girl.

Meeting With Santa.

 Santa Claus: How about a nice football?

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): Football? Football? What’s a football? With unconscious will my voice squeaked out ‘football’.

Santa Claus: Okay, get him out of here.

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): A football? Oh no, what was I doing? Wake up, Stupid! Wake up!

Ralphie is shoved down a slide, but he stops himself and climbs back up

Ralphie: No! No! I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!

Santa Claus: You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.

The F-Word.

Saving the best for last!

Ralphie: Oooh fudge!

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): Only I didn’t say “Fudge.” I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the “F-dash-dash-dash” word!


Ralphie: Uh….

Mother: That’s what I thought you said. Get in the car. Go on!

Narrator (Ralphie as an adult): It was all over. I was dead. What would it be? The guillotine? Hanging? The chair? The rack? The Chinese water torture? Hmmm. Mere child’s play compared to what surely awaited me.



lovely, eh?

Making Travel Plans to Paris

Choosing the best time of year to visit Paris:
Deciding on the time of year you want to go to Paris is the first thing you really should do. The weather is the major topic to consider first. Paris has an average of 15 snow days a year mostly rain and damp in the winter with occasional winds and rain. The average temperature in Paris is 53 degrees the most pleasant weather of any capital in Europe. During the summer there are very few days that the temperature gets over 85 degrees.

August is the slow month for activities. August is their holiday month and many of the attractions are closed. Paris has a skeleton staff during this month. If you want to enjoy many activities, then you may want to choose another month to visit.

Want a first class hotel while you are in Paris? July and August are the best times to be sure of getting the deluxe room you are wanting. There are many students in Paris during July and August so getting a budget room is usually out of the question.

Remember the annual auto show is in late September and early October. The hotels are booked during this time so if you are going to see the car shows get your reservation in early.

I know everyone want to travel on holidays. Paris is not the place to plan you trip on a holiday because most everything closes. There are hardly any activities going on during the holiday seasons.

Whenever going over to another country you will need a passport. If you not French get a passport and be sure to check the expiration date on it, passports run out like coupons do. U.S. Citizens staying less than 90 days don’t need a visa. When staying longer than 90 days you’ll need to apply for a long-term visa, residence card, or a temporary-visa for you stay. A proof of income or means of income while in Paris and a good reason why you are applying for long-term stay is required. The U.S. State Department can give you info and guide you through the procedure when applying for your passport.

When entering France you can only take certain things and amounts with you. In addition, when you leave France you have to be careful about what and how much you bring back with you. You can also find out about these restrictions from your state department nearest you.

Are you handicap and have special needs. Paris is better equipped to handle handicap than most cities. Most of the more modern hotels and facilities have the necessary equipment and rooms for the handicap and elderly. You should contact ahead of time to let them know what you need; or if you are going through a travel agency, they can do it for you.

Trains are even equipped for the handicap and special needs that you might have to have when traveling around Paris. The older trains have compartments for the wheelchair and guide dogs but the newer one are made with the handicap in mind.

When going to Paris it is a good idea to check with the French Government Tourist office in your area. They can help you make all your decisions. There are different packages that a person can get to fit their budget. Travel Packages and Escorted Tour packages are different so is sure you know what you are looking for.

When deciding on your travel package it usually includes the airfare, accommodations, car rentals airport transfers even help you decide on the activities you might have in mind.

The Escorted Tour is a group of people going on the same trip together along with and escort. Everything is planned out for you from the time you leave home until you return.

The Camera Backpack

The Camera Backpack

Boy-with-Backpack-3When you go out of the house to go somewhere else, you never forget to bring your bag. Bags are very important; it’s where you put all your stuff. In fact, you’ve been using it ever since you were in the pre-school. And now that you’re all-grown up, you still can’t live without it.

Bags are used in many different ways. There are school bags, designer bags for men and women, laptop bags, accessory bags, and most of all, a camera bag for your precious camera. If you love photography, and you take your most prized possession with you (that is your camera), you want to ensure its safety. Then what you need is a camera bag. There are bags specially made for cameras.

If you don’t want to carry a bag, you can opt for a backpack camera-bag. Just sling it over your shoulders, and off you go. It’s not difficult to find one because it is widely available in department stores and even on the net. You are already aware that you can actually go shopping on the net without leaving your home. Through the Internet, you can choose from many styles of bags for your camera. Look for online stores that offer this type of bags.

Some of the bags available are the following:

1. APPOLLO camera back pack
2. Canon Deluxe Back pack
3. LowePro Slingshot 100AW Digital Camera Backpack
4. Tamrac back pack Mini Trekker
5. Pro mini back pack camera bag

These are just some of the backpack bags available for cameras. There are many brands of bags, and oftentimes when it comes to choosing the bag, it depends on what camera you have and on how you are going to use the bag. Since there are many bags to choose from, you should first identify your needs and what other accessories you plan to put into your bag.

You can find camera backpacks easy for toting. Some bags have a lot of pockets in case you need to carry other items like batteries or films. Some bags even have a compass attached to it, more like the military bags. The bottom section of the bag is where you usually put your camera and the bag’s top section is for your personal gear.

You can find back packs in different colors and designs. If you want to spend more money on your camera bag, you can also go for ones which are specially designed to withstand harsh weather conditions. There are camera bags which have rain covers to completely protect your camera form getting wet, and a lot of compartments for other important things. You can even put your MP3 or CD players on one of its compartments.

Choose a camera bag that is durable and of top quality. Most bags, especially the expensive ones, have warranties. Sometimes, people forget these things because they want a much cheaper bag. However, if you can’t afford the expensive ones, it’s not a sin to buy cheap bags. Just make sure that the bag can carry your camera stuff with ease and protection.

Cameras are expensive, so naturally you want to have a perfect bag to carry your precious item. So if you’re going out, make sure that you put it in your back pack rather than carrying it around.

According to Wikipedia, a lanyard usually is used where there is a risk of losing the object or to ensure that it is visible at all times. That is a great reason to buy a lanyard that can assure you not to lose something that you might need to leave or arrive your home everyday… the precious keys!

Holidays are great occasion to give your beloved ones a great and helpful gift…

During the months of September through November, the welcome center is open to help the students find housing, jobs, get bank accounts or whatever they may need for their long term stay.

How to find Gay spots in Paris:
Paris is open-minded for the Gay and Lesbian, letting these people be-their own person. Dozens of bars, restaurants, hotels and many more things are open for them. Wherever you see a “rainbow flag,” it is for the gay and lesbian crowds. Join the association for gay and lesbian tourists, they provide a meeting point for groups on Saturday. Find an apartment in the gay community and make your life a happy one on a day-to-day basis. Check out the Gay travel agency where they have tours and events for everyone. Paris also provides clubs with the gay and lesbians in mind.

How to protect your belongings:
Safety is something everyone needs to be aware of. There are many pickpockets out there walking the streets so keep the wallets in your back pocket, make sure your bags are securely fastened. Hang onto those cell phones; everyone likes those free minutes. If someone should walk up and offer their services to you, make a visit to the official sales point to let it be known.

When your choosing the season for your stay in Paris be sure to check with your nearest travel agent. The air is not of good quality and can cause your airways to plug up, you might experience difficulty breathing and it even causes the erosion of monuments.
Paris City is doing all they can to provide fresh air, which is polluted, caused from the surplus of traffic. Air is constantly being monitored; when the pollution is high, the media is alerted. Warnings are put out for the children, elderly, and pregnant women in mind. When the pollution is high, all outdoors sports are canceled until it goes down. Although the air is generally good, the city is encouraging the people to use the public transport, cycling, and roller-blading more. This would cut down the pollution and make it safer for everyone.
