Plastic Bottle

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous!
On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said that this is what caused her breast cancer.
It has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue.
Sheryl Crow's oncologist told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a  car.
The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water. Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue.
So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car...
Pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know that just might save us!
Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle instead of plastic!
This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre  
No plastic containers in microwaves.
No plastic water bottles in freezers.
No plastic wrap in microwaves.
Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer.
Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies.
Don't freeze plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.
Recently the Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.
He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating food in the microwave using plastic containers....
This especially applies to foods that contain fat.
He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastic releases dioxin into the food.
Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same result, but without the dioxin.
So, such things as TV dinners, instant soups, etc., should be removed from their containers and heated in something else.
Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's safer to use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.
He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the styrene foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons...
Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Cling film, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.
As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food.
Cover food with a paper towel instead.
This is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your life!

~Your kids are becoming you...and you don't like them...but your grandchildren are perfect!
~Going out is good.. Coming home is better!

~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything .... especially golf.
~Your spouse is counting on you to remember things you don't remember.
~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore.
~Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than he does in bed.   It's called his "pre-sleep".

Now you bring clean underwear in case you HAVE an accident!

~You used to use more 4 letter words .... "what?"..."when?"... ???
~Now that you can afford  expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.
~Your husband has a night out with the guys, but he's home by 9:00 P.M. Next week it will be 8:30 P..M.
~You read 100 pages into a book before you realize you've read it.
~Notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!
~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.
 ~Everybody whispers.
 ~Now that your husband has retired ... you'd give anything if he'd find a job!
~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet ... 2 of which you will never wear.
~~~~But old is good in some things:
old songs, old movies,
And best of all, OLD FRIENDS!!
Love you, "OLD FRIEND!"

Pancake untuk Mama & Papa

Pada suatu hari Sabtu pagi, si kecil Brandon yang berumur enam tahun memutuskan untuk menyiapkan pancake untuk kedua orangtuanya. Ia mengambil sebuah mangkok besar dan sendok, menarik kursi ke meja dapur, membuka almari dan menarik kantong tepung yang berat, menumpahkan sebagian isinya ke atas lantai. Ia menyendok tepung dan memasukkannya ke dalam mangkok dengan tangannya, menuangkan segelas susu serta menambahkan sedikit gula, meninggalkan ceceran tepung di atas lantai, yang sekarang bergambar jejak-jejak kaki yang ditinggalkan oleh anak kucing kecil kesayangannya.

Tubuh Brandon berlumuran tepung dan ia mulai putus asa. Ia ingin melakukan sesuatu yang istimewa bagi Mama dan Papa, tetapi hasilnya sungguh mengecewakan. Ia tidak tahu apa yang harus dilakukannya sekarang, apakah menempatkan seluruh adonan ke dalam oven? Ia bahkan tidak tahu bagaimana menyalakan kompor. Sekonyong-konyong, ia melihat anak kucingnya menjilat-jilat dari adonan kuenya, maka ia menghalau dengan tangannya untuk mengusir, saat itu tersenggolah tempat telor di atas meja sehingga telur-telur berluncuran ke atas lantai. Dengan panik Brandon berusaha membersihkan telur-telur yang pecah berantakan, tak disangka ia tergelincir jatuh di atas cairan telur sehingga piyamanya menjadi basah dan lengket. Tepat saat itulah ia melihat Papa berdiri di ambang pintu. Maka, mengalirlah butir-butir airmata sebesar kacang menuruni pipinya. Sungguh, ia ingin melakukan sesuatu yang baik, tetapi yang ia hasilkan adalah suatu kekacauan besar. Ia yakin bahwa ia akan segera mendengar makian, mungkin malah pukulan di pantatnya.

Tetapi Papa hanya memandangnya. Kemudian, Papa berjalan di antara barang-barang yang kacau berantakan di atas lantai. Ia mengangkat puteranya yang sedang menangis, memeluknya erat dan menciumnya dengan sayang, tanpa menghiraukan piyamanya sendiri ikut menjadi basah dan kotor. 

Begitulah Allah yang baik menghadapi kita. Kita berusaha melakukan yang baik dalam hidup, tetapi, sebaliknya kekacauan dan masalah yang kita dapat. Perkawinan kita berantakan, atau kita bertengkar dengan teman, atau kita tertekan menghadapi pekerjaan kita, atau kesehatan kita semakin memburuk. Terkadang kita hanya berdiri di sana dengan airmata bercucuran, sebab kita tidak tahu lagi apa yang harus kita lakukan.

Itulah saat Tuhan mengangkat kita dan melimpahi kita dengan kasih-Nya serta mengampuni segala kesalahan kita, meskipun akibat kesalahan dan dosa kita itu harus ditanggung-Nya. Tetapi, adanya kemungkinan kita melakukan kesalahan, janganlah sampai menyebabkan kita lalu berhenti berusaha “membuat pancake” bagi Tuhan dan sesama. Suatu saat kelak, cepat atau lambat, kita akan membuatnya dengan baik, dan Tuhan serta sesama kita, akan senang bahwa kita telah berusaha… 

Gbu all.

The Road to Success

The Road to success is not straight
There is a curve called failure
A loop called confusionn
Speed bumps called friends
Red lights called enemies
Caution lights called family
You will have flats called jobs, 
 Free Online Greetings But, if you have a spare called determination
An engine called perseverance
Insurance called faith
A driver called God
You will make it to a place called Success

Dua buah kotak

Ada di tanganku dua buah kotak yang telah Tuhan berikan padaku untuk dijaga. Kata-Nya, "Masukkan semua penderitaanmu ke dalam kotak yang berwarna hitam. 

Dan masukkan semua kebahagiaanmu ke dalam kotak yang berwarna emas." Aku melakukan apa yang Tuhan katakan.Setiap kali mengalami kesedihan maka aku letakkan ia ke dalam kotak hitam. Sebaliknya ketika bergembira maka aku letakkan kegembiraanku dalam kotak berwarna emas. 

Tapi anehnya, semakin hari kotak berwarna emas semakin bertambah berat. Sedangkan kotak berwarna hitam tetap saja ringan seperti semula.Dengan penuh rasa penasaran, aku membuka kotak berwarna hitam. 

Kini aku tahu jawabannya. Aku melihat ada lubang besar di dasar kotak berwarna hitam itu, sehingga semua penderitaan yang aku masukkan ke sana selalu jatuh keluar. Aku tunjukkan lubang itu pada Tuhan dan bertanya, "Kemanakah perginya semua penderitaanku?" 

Tuhan tersenyum hangat padaku. "AnakKu, semua penderitaanmu berada pada-Ku." Aku bertanya kembali, "Tuhan, mengapa Engkau memberikan dua buah kotak, kotak emas dan kotak hitam yang berlubang?" 

"AnakKu, kotak emas Kuberikan agar kau senantiasa menghitung berkat yang Aku berikan padamu, sedangkan kotak hitam Kuberikan agar kau melupakan penderitaanmu." Ingat-ingatlah semua kebahagiaanmu agar kau senantiasa merasakan kebahagiaan. Campakkan penderitaanmu agar kau melupakannya.

May God let us all grow old gracefully Wishing all of you 
 A Happy 
"New Year 2011"
