The great two letter word?

Think about it. The 2-letter word 'UP'
Read until the end.....you' ll laugh....
This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is 'UP.' It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].
It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning,
why do we wake UP?
At a meeting, why does a topic come UP?
Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?
We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen.
We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car.
At other times this little word has real special meaning.
People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.
To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.
And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.
We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP atnight. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!
To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary.
In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.
If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used.
It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may end UP or wind UP with a hundred or more.
When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP .
When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP.
When it rains, it soaks UP the earth.
When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP.
One could go on & on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now ........ my time is UP !
Oh....one more thing:
What is the first thing you do in the morning & the last thing you do at night?
U P!
Did that one crack you UP?
Don't screw UP. Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address book..or not...it's UP to you.
Don't forget when your angry at someone it's UP Yours!!!!!
Now I'll shut UP!

Is the glass half empty or half full?

Tanner-Maluchnik

Is the glass half empty or half full?

by Tanner M.

Answering that psychological question can tell a lot about a person's life destiny.

While I do find myself in a pessimistic mood sometimes, I am usually on the glass half full side, or the optimist.

Why do I think that? Because if I believe that the glass is half full, then to me IT IS half full. Think about it.

Defining The Glass

Here is how I define the glass based on both sides.

Scenario 1 – Half Empty Mentality

If you run into a negative situation in life, all you can think about is the negative outcomes, how it affected you negatively and how it will make your life worse in the future, then most likely the glass is half empty.

For example, you total your car in a car crash. You or the other driver made a mistake. You start flipping out about how much the other driving is an idiot or you continue to put yourself down for causing the wreck. You continue to upset and stress yourself days after the car crash because you constantly focus on the negatives such as "oh god I can't get to work."

Get your blood pressure checked!

Scenario 2 – Half Full Mentality

You run into a negative situation, it impacts your life negatively for the moment, however you do not dwell on the negativity that has been forced upon you. Not only that, but you focus on what went right, learn from the mistake (if there was one), and find all the positives that might come out of this negative situation.

For example, you total your car in a car crash. You or the other driver made a mistake, however you do not dwell on the mistake, you learn and move on. Instead of constantly thinking of how it is going to be so hard to get around town, you instead think of the extra time you will get to spend with whoever might be taxiing you around. Maybe you think of how much you might save in gas from taking public transportation until you get a new car.

The point is, you focus on how you can turn negative situations into positive situations.

Zen & The Art of Happiness

The awesome thing is you can develop the glass half full mentality with disciplined thought and increased awareness of your emotions.

Check out Zen And the Art of Happiness by Chris Prentiss for a nice resource on how to achieve the glass half full mentality and watch your blood pressure points decline!

What do you think? Is that crazy thinking? Is your glass half empty or half full? If its half full then lets hang out!

Halal Slaughter - The Disgusting Reality

Would this also apply to kosher food ?
The BNP's North West Regional Press Officer Derek Adams has released a video which shows in graphic detail the process behind 'halal ritual slaughter' and shows why this barbaric Islamic method of killing animals needs to be outlawed.

In the video, Mr Adams describes exactly how the ritual slaughter process is carried out, comparing it to the humane stunning method which is the civilised way of the West.
Mr Adams ends the video with an appeal for consumers to boycott the major stores which are using halal meat without the public's knowledge or consent.

Please click on the link below to view the video in question, and to join in the Operation Fightback campaign against the British supermarkets that are selling halal products:

Why Winning is a Team Effort

The other day while I was on patrol… I met up with a friend who was taking a little break with a co-worker.

My friend Dwight introduced me to the other gent, Tom, who looked like he could be a nose guard for any NFL team of his choosing.

During the conversation Dwight mentioned how I do triathlons and have a back ground in jiu-jitsu.  It was obvious that this guy was curious about my age… so when I told him I would soon be 67… his jaw hit the floor and our conversation turned to seniors and exercise.

Tom said his father… who is 73 and retired five years ago… just sits around on his duff, watching TV, and really doesn't do anything else.

Tom told me, "I tell him to go for walks and stop eating fast food but he just won't listen."

"Tell him" what to do?

I knew the second I heard those two words, this is where Tom went wrong.

I've been around a little while… and I can tell you… I can't remember meeting many people who like being told what to do.

Obviously… that's all I really needed to hear to get me going.

I said, "Tom, that's not how it works… most people need support… not a drill sergeant.  It was that support from my friends and family that kept me motivated to keep going."

I can't stress enough how important this is…

Without support I wouldn't be where I am today… and just as important as getting support… is knowing that sometimes, you have to ask for it.

For a lot of people of my generation, the idea for asking for a little help is as bad as asking for directions when you lost.

But without that little bit of help… you're never going to get to where you need to be.

I said, "Tom… when you get home tonight… don't tell your dad to go for a walk.

Walking doesn't have to be exercise… it can just be quality time spent together, instead say 'Hey dad, let's go for a stroll', and I'll bet you get totally different results."

Because there's a huge difference between telling somebody what to do… and them actually doing it.

If somebody would have told me what to do all the time back when I was just getting started… it may have derailed my progress completely.

I said that if he wanted to put his father on the path to fitness… the quickest route would be for Tom to start initiating things to do with his dad… or in other words, show him a little support.

"And don't let him get away with that I'm too old crap.  Does he like sports?"

Tom nodded, "He likes them all." 

"Good!" I said, "Take him to watch a game or event… then park way out in the lot and walk to the arena." 

That's pretty crafty," Tom smiled.

And I have to agree… as there are many ways to get people off the couch and moving, but it's hard for some of us to do it alone … support is a very important ingredient for success, I mean hey, it worked for me!

But when you finally get a lazy loved one out of the house (and that lazy loved one could be you!)… it's very important not to criticize… let them start at his or her own pace and build from there.

But our conversation didn't stop there…

"But how do I get him to eat right?" Tom asked. 

I simply smiled and said,

"Same philosophy… that magic word… 'let's'." 

Tom looked at me a little weird with this one, so I explained a little further,

"If you're not eating healthy… why would anybody listen to you about what they put in their body?

When I first started… my wife and I worked together to find healthy alternatives to our food choices.  

Try this… start by making something healthy to eat, like a fruit salad or a veggie plate, and then offer some to dear old dad."

"Yeah, I could do that," Tom said. 

"Even better," I suggested, "Walk into the room with two bowls, one for you and one for him… it's harder for him to refuse… even my dog Jake enjoys having fruit salad with me.  But the most important thing is getting your dad to eat healthy with you, making sure he gets plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit." 

I told Tom that if Rosemary, my lovely wife,  and I eat any processed food at all… our rule is it can't have more than three ingredients and we have to be able to pronounce all of them.

I will always believe that exercise along with fresh fruit and vegetables is the reason I'm alive and kicking butt today.

We talked a bit more… and Tom thanked me for the advice and said he was going to start working with his dad that very evening.

It doesn't matter which side of the couch you're sitting on… the most important thing to remember is everybody needs love and support from their family and friends.

Try it today…

 After dinner, ask the family to join you for a walk around the neighborhood… this will work even if it's just you and the missus or mister… go out and enjoy the evening air.

 And please… when you need it… ask for help!

Because in order to move forward on the path of life… support is the only way to get there.

Never say "I'm too old" or "I can't", because you can be an example at any age!

Mizpah!

The perfect husband

Yeah, whose?
------------------
Several men are in the locker room at the golf club. A mobile phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands free speaker function and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen.

MAN: 'Hello'
WOMAN: 'Darling, it's me. Are you at the club ?'
MAN: 'Yes'
WOMAN: 'I am at Bluewater and I've found this beautiful leather coat. It's   only £500. Is it OK if I buy it?'
MAN: 'Sure, go ahead if you like it that much.'
WOMAN: 'I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership on the way here and saw the new 2010 Models. I saw one I really liked.'
MAN: 'How much ?'
WOMAN: '£65,000
MAN: 'OK, but for that price please make sure you haggle for all the optional extras.'
WOMAN: 'Great ! Oh, and one more thing...the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking £750,000.
MAN: 'Well, if you still like it that much, why not make an offer of £700K. They will probably take it. If not, we can go the extra 50 thousand if you think it's worth it.
'WOMAN: 'OK. I'll see you later ! I love you so much !
'MAN: 'Bye ! I love you, too.'

The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in   astonishment, mouths agape.
He turns and  asks:" Anyone know who this phone belongs to ?"

Me and My Father

Touching poem "Me and My Father"...

When I was 4 Yrs Old : "My father is THE BEST
When I was 6 Yrs Old: "My father seems to know everyone
When I was 10 Yrs Old:" My father is excellent but he is short tempered
When I was 12 Yrs Old: "My father was nice when I was little
When I was 14 Yrs Old: "My father started being too sensitive
When I was 16 Yrs Old : "My father can't keep up with modern times

When I was 18 Yrs Old : "My father is getting less tolerant as the days pass by
When I was 20 Yrs Old :" It is too hard to forgive my father, how could my Mum stand him all these years
When I was 25 Yrs Old :" My father seems to be objecting to everything I do
When I was 30 Yrs Old: "It's very difficult to be in agreement with my father, I wonder if my Grandfather was troubled by my father when he was a youth
When I was 40 Yrs Old: "My father brought me up with a lot of discipline, I must do the same
When I was 45 Yrs Old: "I am puzzled, how did my father manage to raise all of us
When I was 50 Yrs Old : "It's rather difficult to control my kids, how much did my father suffer for the sake of upbringing and protecting us
When I was 55 Yrs Old:" My father was far looking and had wide plans for us, he was gentle and outstanding.
When I became 60 Yrs Old: "My father is THE BEST
Note that it took 56 Yrs to complete the cycle and return to the starting point " "My father is THE BEST "

Let's be good to our parents before it's too late and pray to Allaah that our own children will treat us even better than the way we treated our parents

Allah(SWT) says: "Your lord has decreed that you worship non but him and show kindness to parents. If one or both reach old age with you then do not say uff! To them nor repulse them, but speak graciously to them" {Surah Al-Isra: Ayah 23}

O our lord, forgive me and my parents and believers on the day when the reckoning shall come to pass. {Surah Ibrahim: Ayah 41}

O my Lord, have mercy on them (parents) just as they nourished me when I was small.{Surah Bani Irail: Ayah 24}


Tiger Woods gives us the greatest golf photo you'll ever see

Tiger Woods gives us the greatest golf photo you'll ever see

Follow Jay Busbee on Twitter at @jaybusbee.

Check that photo from the weekend's Ryder Cup action. No, it's not staged or Photoshopped. That's really Tiger Woods hitting a golf ball straight at the camera.

How'd it happen? By mistake. The cameraman, Mark Pain of the Daily Mail, was in the proper position on the 18th hole when Woods flat-out duffed his shot. The ball hit Pain's camera and dropped to the ground. But unlike many instances when Woods and caddy Stevie Williams have taken issue with photographers, Tiger had nothing to say here. He knew he was in the wrong, not Pain.

(Aside: best part of the gallery in this picture? The smiling dude with the cigar on the right side of the frame. He's the only thing about this photo that looks fake.) 

[Photos: See more of Tiger Woods at the Ryder Cup ]

Of course, the fact that the photographer was in the right didn't stop Woods from offering Pain a withering glare as he left the course:

Bravo, Mr. Pain. It's the rare photographer that can claim to have taken a golf shot to the face.
