MISS YOU

WORLD LONGEST PRESERVED WINE OF 3,000 YEARS UNEARTHED

WORLD LONGEST PRESERVED WINE OF 3,000 YEARS UNEARTHED


Very good day to all of you,

Great news coming in daily as usual. Today, here is a piece of good news, that liquid found inside an ancient wine vessel unearthed in Shaanxi province is considered to be the earliest wine in China's history.

This wine vessel, about 3,000 years old, made of bronze was discovered in a noble's tomb of the West Zhou Dynasty (1046 BC - 771 BC) in Shingushan mountain in Baoji city.

It was reported in Xinhua that the liquid is strongly believe to be the oldest wine discovered in China. Amazingly, the vessel, one of the six discovered in the tomb, could be heard to contain a liquid when it was shaken.

However, the liquid remains a mystery because there was no appropriate tool to open it at the excavation site. Moreover, it was very interesting fact to note that the cover of the vessel was pretty solid. No wonder it is still intact till date. As a result, it will keep us excited of its outcome.

A prohibition device of, 95 cm-long by 21 cm-height was also unearthed with the wine vessels at the same tomb, which is also the first of this kind unearthed in Baoji. It indicates that the people of Zhou displayed it on the table so as to drink in moderation.

Why they do so? This was because wine became a symbol of corruption as Shang officials, 1600BC-1046BC) used to drink excessively.


The second artifact may suggest to us that Corporate Social Responisibility, CSR, had been introduced and implemented at that time to alert the danger of excessive consumption of wine to the public at an Early date. As such, this long healthy practice needs to be maintained and sustained, in fact at a much higher level so as to make society better off.

In this respect, great gratitude and appreciation should be given to them for taking so much trouble to keep this old stuff for the future generation. This practice is still maintained to date amongst some quarters. Now, it becomes clear why they did so. 
As the excavation work is still underway at the site, more items are expected to be found. Now, I am pretty sure everyone is curious to know the liquid in the vessel.

Please keep us informed of the latest development. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you,

UNIQUE AND LOVELY FLOWERS


The photos are great, but the philosophy is even better!

We never get what we want,
We never want what we get,
We never have what we like,
We never like what we have.
And still we live & love.
That's life....!!!!!!!!!

Description: Description: unknown.jpg

The best kind of friend,
Is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with,
Never say a word,
And then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

Description: Description: unknown_1.jpg

It's true that we don't know
What we've got until it's gone,
But it's also true that we don't know
What we've been missing until it arrives..

Description: Description: unknown_2.jpg

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they'll love you back!
Don't expect love in return;
Just wait for it to grow in their hearts,
But if it doesn't, be content it grew in yours.

Description: Description: unknown_3.jpg

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,
An hour to like someone,
And a day to love someone,
But it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Description: Description: unknown_4.jpg

Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile,
Because it takes only a smile to
Make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile!

Description: Description: unknown_5.jpg

May you have
Enough happiness to make you sweet,
Enough trials to make you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
And enough hope to make you happy.

Always put yourself in others' shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
It probably hurts the other person, too.

The happiest people
Don't necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
Happiness lies for
Those who cry,
Those who hurt,

Those who have searched,
And those who have tried,
For only they can appreciate the importance of people
Who have touched their lives.

Description: Description: unknown_8.jpg

When you were born, you were crying
And everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
You're the one who is smiling
And everyone around you is crying.

Please deliver this message
To those people who mean something to you,
To those who have touched your life in one way or another,
To those who make you smile when you really need it,
To those that make you see the brighter side of things When you are really down,
To those who you want to know
That you appreciate their friendship.

SPECTACULAR WORLD RECORD 4,000 FT - LONG BRIDGE REVEALED

China opens record breaking 4,000ft-long bridge
Aizhai Bridge in Hunan province is 336 m (1,102 ft.) high and has a 1,176 m (3,858 ft.) span. It connects two traffic tunnels in the mountains, cutting the time needed to traverse the canyon from 30 minutes to 1. Construction took five years. Work finished at the end of last year, making it the world's longest and highest suspension bridge.
 




A brave worker put the final touches on the Anzhaite Bridge.


The bridge, which connects to two tunnels, was built to ease traffic


Drivers can take in the views of the Dehang Canyon

People and traffic during the opening ceremony.
Vehicles motor along a two-way, four-lane motorway.
Pedestrians walk along it on a special walkway under the road.
With this, it also help to reduce the pollution by saving the consumption of fuel due to shorter distance of travel.

INTERVIEW WITH BEST SELLING AUTHOR - TRACY KRAUSS





About the author

Tracy Krauss is a best-selling author, artist, playwright, director, worship leader, and teacher. Originally from a small prairie town, she received her Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Saskatchewan. She has lived in many places in northern Canada with her husband, a pastor, and their children. They currently live in Tumbler Ridge, BC.

She currently has four romantic suspense novels and several stage plays in print. Visit her website for more details. http://www.tracykrauss.com


Now, onto the interview.



When did you begin to write?

I started writing shortly after I had my first child. (She’s 27 now.) I could hardly wait for her nap time so that I could pound away at my mother’s old typewriter. What started out as mere fun soon became a compulsion which has lasted all these years.

When did you first discover that you were a writer?

I was one of those kids that enjoyed making up stories, even at a young age. I wrote my first stage play while in grade four at school and convinced my friends to practice during recess. When our teacher saw what was going on she arranged for us to perform it in front of the entire school. It was my first ‘written’ work and my first time as a director.

How much did you write before you were published?

I wrote on a daily basis. I finished four full length novels before I even started submitting. It took some courage to finally share those early works with anyone, and then even more courage to keep doing so since they were soundly rejected multiple times. The candid criticism did me good and I learned from it, though. I’m thankful for it now, although it hurt at the time.


What is your favorite part of writing?

There is something exciting about starting something new – the freshness of it. I also love it when the words just seem to flow, and then the best is that feeling of accomplishment when you finally finish the first draft.


What made you think of publishing a book to share with others and at the same time encourage others to share their faith?

I guess my faith is an important part of who I am so it makes sense for me to write from this worldview. I remember being influenced early in my writing career by a Christian rock group that I liked. (DC Talk – this was the 90s, remember!) I was impressed that they were so blatant and unapologetic about their faith. I wanted to be like that with my writing.

Tell us about your latest release.

Here is the back cover blurb:

Marshdale. Just a small farming community where nothing special happens. A perfect place to start over… or get lost. There is definitely more to this prairie town than meets the eye. Once the meeting place of aboriginal tribes for miles around, some say the land itself was cursed because of the people’s sin. But its history goes farther back than even indigenous oral history can trace and there is still a direct descendant who has been handed the truth, like it or not. Exactly what ties does the land have to the medicine of the ancients? Is it cursed, or is it all superstition?

Wind Over Marshdale is the story of the struggles within a small prairie town when hidden evil and ancient medicine resurface. Caught in the crossfire, new teacher Rachel Bosworth finds herself in love with two men at once. First, there is Thomas Lone Wolf, a Cree man whose blood lines run back to the days of ancient medicine but who has chosen to live as a Christian and faces prejudice from every side as he tries to expose the truth. Then there is Con McKinley, local farmer who has to face some demons of his own. Add to the mix a wayward minister seeking anonymity in the obscurity of the town; eccentric twin sisters – one heavily involved in the occult and the other a fundamentalist zealot; and a host of other ‘characters’ whose lives weave together unexpectedly for the final climax. This suspenseful story is one of human frailty - prejudice, cowardice, jealousy, and greed – magnified by powerful spiritual forces that have remained hidden for centuries, only to be broken in triumph by grace.

Wow! This book sounds really good. Are you planning on writing more in the years to come?

Writing has been such an integral part of my life for so many years that I can’t imagine NOT writing. I currently have two more novels ready for revision which I plan to submit to my agent soon. Beyond that I have several works in progress. New ideas keep popping up all the time.
So far what is your worst criticism/attacks, and how have you overcome it?
I haven’t really been attacked, per se, since getting published. My worst criticism came before publication and all of that was justified, as I already said. I have had a few less than glowing reviews, but I’ve decided that any publicity is good publicity, so I don’t let it bother me. In fact, a few lower reviews might even add credibility. Not everyone likes the same things, so this just shows that people are actually reading my work and being honest about it.

What is the accomplishment that you are most proud of?

Besides raising four kids who are now great adults, I guess I am proud of the fact that I reached my goal to become a published author by the time I reached a‘certain’ magic age. I’m zeroing in on that age and I’m happy to say I have four books and five stage plays in print.
What does your writing process look like?

After I get an idea, I write a brief outline. Simultaneously, I create detailed character sketches that help me to understand each person’s motivation. Then I write a chapter by chapter outline. It’s at this point that I actually start writing the book, and of course, it usually changes quite dramatically. The outline helps me to have a sense of where I’m going, but I don’t let it dictate to me. If something interesting crops up, I go with it.

How did you get published?

I started sending out a few tentative submissions in the early 2000s, and as I already said, met with a lot of rejection. I took all the criticism to heart, however, and finally, in 2008 I decided I was going to do a submission blitz once and for all. I sent out a ton of submissions and after a few months I ended up with three requests for more. Out of those I signed a contract for my first book AND THE BEAT GOES ON with Strategic Book, New York, NY. I was quite happy to continue my relationship with them for my next two books. Then my agent found me a deal for my fourth book WIND OVER MARSHDALE, with Astraea Press. At the same time, I regularly submit to a variety of play publishing houses and, much the same as with my novels, I’ve had lots of rejection, but also some success. I have plays published with Pioneer Drama Services, JAC Publishing, and Big Dog Publishing.

How do you come up with title of your books?

MY MOTHER THE MAN-EATER came to me in the shower. (True story) In a couple of cases, I thought of the title before I even started writing. Other than that I just toss different ideas around as I’m writing the thing.

Can you enlighten us a little more about your books?
My novels are: AND THE BEAT GOES ON, where archaeological evidence for creation comes at a heavy cost; MY MOTHER THE MAN-EATER, the story of a ‘cougar’ who takes on more than she bargained for; PLAY IT AGAIN, about an unlikely match during the 1980s rock n’ roll scene; and WIND OVER MARSHDALE, where strong spiritual forces rock a seemingly peaceful prairie town. All of them have a redemptive element and are sometimes called ‘edgy Christian’, although they are not graphic by any means.


Tell us your guiding principle that governs your life? How have you cultivated these values?

Strive for excellence in whatever you do. This comes from a verse in Ecclesiastics which says, ‘Whatever you do, do it as unto the Lord’.

Do you have any advice for writers looking to get published?

Number one, hone your craft. Take classes, read books, get others to critique your work - do what it takes to get good at writing. Number two, always get fresh eyes to look at your work. I suppose I said this in number one already, but I can’t stress enough how important this is. We can become too emotionally attached to our own work and not see it objectively. Number three, be persistent. Submit, submit, submit is my motto.

REAL AND INSPIRING EXPERIENCE FROM SPENCER WEST

Spencer West Climbs Kilimanjaro – with No Legs

Spencer West Climbs Kilimanjaro – with No Legs
A Toronto climber has scaled Mount Kilimanjaro in 20,000 steps, nearly all of them on his hands. With no legs and endless grit, 31-year-old Spencer West raised over $500,000 for Free the Children’s Redefine Possible initiative. The money will support clean-water projects in East Africa.
West has redefined what is possible since birth, when he was diagnosed with sacral agenesis. The rare genetic disorder causes abnormalities in the lower spine. At age five doctors amputated both of his legs below the pelvis. Here’s how West describes their prognosis in a video for Free the Children:

They said I would never walk, that I wouldn’t be a functioning member of society, that the odds would always be against me. But I refused to listen then, and I refuse to listen now.

In an interview with Colin Perkel for Canadian Press, West said a meeting with an 8-year-old Kenyan girl inspired him to train for the grueling climb. She told him “she didn’t know white people could lose their legs.” He added:

That one phrase changed the entire course of my life and helped me recognize how I could use my story to inspire people to overcome obstacles.

Severe drought in East Africa prompted West and his best friends, David Johnson and Alex Meers, to launch the “Redefine Possible” campaign. Their goal was to raise $750,000 for water projects.





After a year of training, West and a crew of friends and documentary filmmakers set out on the climb. In a special to The Calgary Herald, Craig and Marc Kielburger, co-founders of Free the Children, wrote that West made 80 percent of the climb on his own. The rest he maneuvered with his custom-built wheelchair or while strapped to the backs of friends or porters.

West blogged the arduous journey to Mount Kilimanjaro’s 18,640-ft. summit. He chronicled the fatigue, the altitude sickness, and the unfailing cameraderie. After reaching the mountain’s peak, he wrote:

There we were: me and my two best friends in the entire world, sitting together at the top of Africa, the continent that had taught us so much about compassion, humility and the power of we.

David Maris wrote about interviewing West in Tanzania, after he finished the climb. His piece in Forbes sums up the effect this young man has on people:

The more and more I reflected on it, and after watching some videos of the climb as well as some of his other speeches, I realized that while the physical feat he accomplished is impressive, it is how he accomplished it and the message behind it that is inspirational. West’s approach of building a team of reciprocal trust and support, creating major change though small steps, and tying goals to social impact has direct applicability for companies and individuals alike.

And I think the evidence is clear that West is on to something: unlock greatness by redefining possible.

West still intends to reach his goal of $750,000 for the water projects. Donations can be made at Redefine Possible.

YOU SHOULD READ REGARDLESS WHETHER YOU ARE MARRIED OR NOT

DEAR LOVING READERS AND VISITORS,

Below is the story I have read and found it so touching...

“When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.


Suddenly I didn’t
know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?

I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn’t love her anymore. I just pitied her!

With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn’t have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane. When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.

In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn’t want anything from me, but needed a month’s notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month’s time and she didn’t want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.

This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day. She requested that every day for the month’s duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.

I told Jane about my wife’s divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully.

My wife and I hadn’t had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don’t tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.

On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn’t looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.

On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn’t tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.

She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.

Suddenly it hit me… she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.

Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it’s time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.

But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn’t noticed that our life lacked intimacy. I drove to office…. jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind…I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore.

She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won’t divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn’t value the details of our lives, not because we didn’t love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart. Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away. At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I’ll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.

That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed -dead. My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push through with the divorce.— At least, in the eyes of our son—- I’m a loving husband….

The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves.

So find time to be your spouse’s friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage!

If you don’t share this, nothing will happen to you.

If you do, you just might save a marriage. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.....
