PICTURE PERFECT - ROADSIDE






ROADSIDE RAINBOW

ROADSIDE space along the interstate highway system has to be one of the most neglected examples of landscaping in the nation's urban areas. Think of it. There are thousands of miles of interstate highways inside ...

SOME HEARTS



*

I never really thought that I'd spend as much time in airports as I do. I love them and I hate them. I love them because of the peculiar
atmosphere and the people I get to watch. But they are also the same reason why I hate airports. It all comes down to "hello" and "goodbye"...
I have great difficulties with saying goodbye. Watching people cling to each other, crying, and holding each other in that last embrace makes me appreciate what I have even more. Seeing them finally pull apart, extending their arms until the tips of their fingers are the last to let go, is an image that stays forefront in my mind throughout the day.
When you were saying goodbye I heard you say,
I wish you enough...
That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone... and the meaning is :

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much
bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye."

Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain and the capital city of Catalonia. This place has won the esteemed 1999 RIBA Royal Gold Medal, mainly because of the structural designs of edifices. Not all cities have had the prestige of having that award. It used to be just architects who win awards like these, but Barcelona has pretty much done it as a city. Part of these sites are works of the celebrated architect Antoni Gaudi, responsible for the great but still-in-progress temple of the Sagrada Familia (construction of this started in year 1882 and is due for completion in 2026).
Barcelona is one of the best places in the world to appreciate the Mediterranean atmosphere.

For me the one of the most brilliant jewels of universal architecture is the Alhambra (in Andalusia) a series of palaces and gardens built under the Nazari Dynasty in the 14th C...

THE TAURUS MAN
Photobucket
.
The Taurean's characteristics are solidity, practicality, extreme determination and strength of will - no one will ever drive them, but they will willingly and loyally follow a leader they trust. They are faithful and generous friends with a great capacity for affection
Photobucket
When you first meet a Taurus Man, you immediately realize you're standing in the presence of someone very special. One of greatness, in fact. The steadfast calm nature that you see before you is only a prelude to a man full of passion and romance. There is no one quite as methodical or careful when choosing his soul mate, but once his queen has been decided, she will not only be held forever in his heart, but entwined into his soul. Extremely loyal and faithful, the Taurus Man, puts others to shame in his undying devotion to the woman by his side
Photobucket
To love a Taurus Man will be deliciously gratifying and divinely inspirational. A silver-screen Cassanova on one hand and a most fulfilling best friend on the other. Hopes and dreams will be easily shared under the glistening stars. Fate will never seem so glorious. His hand over yours will send tingles down your spine weather it be your first meeting or across the table on your golden anniversary. If you treasure this man half as much as he treasures you, you'll be on your way to earthly ecstasy

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY



*
My mother was so sweet
Sweeter than all sweets you eat'
She was gentle and kind
and worked by using her mind.
Her ears were sharp like a knife
and she was a perfect wife.
If someone was in need, oh dear
My sweet mother was always there
