True Story

I love these touching Texas justice stories! You just gotta love and respect Texas women... The following is a TRUE STORY from the "THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE NEWSPAPER" in Houston, Texas

Last Thursday night around midnight, a woman from Houston, Texas was arrested, jailed and charged with manslaughter for shooting a man 6 times in the back as he was running away with her purse. ~

The following Monday morning, the woman was called in front of the arraignment Judge, sworn in and asked to explain her actions. The woman replied, "I was standing at the corner bus stop for about 15 minutes, waiting for the bus to take me home after work. I am a waitress at a local cafe. I was there alone, so I had my right hand on my pistol, that was in my purse, that was hung over my left shoulder. All of a sudden I was being spun around hard to my left. As I caught my balance, I saw a man running away from me with my purse. I looked down at my right hand and I saw that my fingers were wrapped tightly around my pistol. The next thing I remember is saying out loud, "No Way Punk! You're not stealing my pay check and tips." I raised my right hand, pointed my pistol at the man running away from me with my purse, and squeezed the trigger of my pistol 6 times!

When asked by the arraignment judge, "Why did you shoot the man 6 times? ~ The woman replied under oath, "Because, when I pulled the trigger the 7th time, it only went click."

The woman was acquitted of all charges. She was back at work at the cafe the next day!

Now that's Gun Control.... Texas Style ....!

Well, it's been a while since my last post here. It's so hard to find time to update all my blogs. I have a total of 6 blogs and I got lot of things to do beside writing posts so bear with me my dear readers. I will try to do my best to post here as often as I can.

Today I checked the page rank of this blog and I can't believe that it is now in PR2. I was really surprised! I have to check it twice to make sure and it's still the same result. I thank Mr. G for the increased PR though I don't update this blog regularly. PR come and go but I hope this will stay with me for a while so I will get more tasks in blogging.

10 Best Foods For Your Heart

Take good care of your heart. It's the only one you've got. Take heart with berries, beans, and other healthy fare. Here as some foods that are good for the heart.

Start your day with a steaming bowl of oats, which are full of omega-3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium. This fiber-rich superfood can lower levels of LDL (or bad) cholesterol and help keep arteries clear.

Opt for coarse or steel-cut oats over instant varieties—which contain more fiber—and top your bowl off with a banana for another 4 grams of fiber.

Super-rich in omega-3 fatty acids, salmon can effectively reduce blood pressure and keep clotting at bay. Aim for two servings per week, which may reduce your risk of dying of a heart attack by up to one-third.

"Salmon contains the carotenoid astaxanthin, which is a very powerful antioxidant," says cardiologist Stephen T. Sinatra, MD, the author of Lower Your Blood Pressure In Eight Weeks. But be sure to choose wild salmon over farm-raised fish, which can be packed with insecticides, pesticides, and heavy metals.

Not a fan of salmon? Other oily fish like mackerel, tuna, herring, and sardines will give your heart the same boost.

Add a bit of avocado to a sandwich or spinach salad to up the amount of heart-healthy fats in your diet. Packed with monounsaturated fat, avocados can help lower LDL levels while raising the amount of HDL cholesterol in your body.

"Avocados are awesome," says Dr. Sinatra. "They allow for the absorption of other carotenoids—especially beta-carotene and lycopene—which are essential for heart health."

Olive oil
Full of monounsaturated fats, olive oil lowers bad LDL cholesterol and reduces your risk of developing heart disease.

Results from the Seven Countries Study, which looked at cardiovascular disease incidences across the globe, showed that while men in Crete had a predisposition for high cholesterol levels, relatively few died of heart disease because their diet focused on heart-healthy fats found in olive oil. Look for extra-virgin or virgin varieties—they're the least processed—and use them instead of butter when cooking.

Walnuts are full of omega-3 fatty acids and, along with almonds and macadamia nuts, are loaded with mono- and polyunsaturated fat. Plus, nuts increase fiber in the diet, says Dr. Sinatra. "And like olive oil, they are a great source of healthy fat."

Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries—whatever berry you like best—are full of anti-inflammatories, which reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer.

"Blackberries and blueberries are especially great," says Sinatra. "But all berries are great for your vascular health."

Fill up on fiber with lentils, chickpeas, and black and kidney beans. They're packed with omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and soluble fiber.

Spinach can help keep your ticker in top shape thanks to its stores of lutein, folate, potassium, and fiber.

But upping your servings of any veggies is sure to give your heart a boost. The Physicians' Health Study examined more than 15,000 men without heart disease for a period of 12 years. Those who ate at least two-and-a-half servings of vegetables each day cut their risk of heart disease by about 25%, compared with those who didn't eat the veggies. Each additional serving reduced risk by another 17%.

Full of fiber and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, a little sprinkling of flaxseed can go a long way for your heart. Top a bowl of oatmeal or whole-grain cereal with a smidgen of ground flaxseed for the ultimate heart-healthy breakfast.

Soy may lower cholesterol, and since it is low in saturated fat, it's still a great source of lean protein in a heart-healthy diet.

Look for natural sources of soy, like edamame, tempeh, or organic silken tofu. And soy milk is a great addition to a bowl of oatmeal or whole-grain cereal. But watch the amount of salt in your soy: some processed varieties like soy dogs can contain added sodium, which boosts blood pressure.

Everyone knows that it is beans.
"Beans, beans, good for the heart.
The more you eat, the more you fart
The more you fart, the better you feel
So eat more beans for every meal."

The Window From Which We Look

I got countless forwarded e-mails in my inbox and I hardly read them. I just choose what I want to read and the rest stayed unread until this time but this one really caught my attention. This is pretty humbling. Read on....

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash outside. "That laundry is not very clean", she said. "She doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap."Her husband looked on, but remained silent.

Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comments. About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a  nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: "Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this."

The husband said, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows."

And so it is with life. What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

Christian Song

I first heard this song over the Christian radio I've been listening to many years ago. I enjoyed listening to the lyrics and the melody was so easy to learn. I got the lyrics and learned the song. Then I taught it to the youth in our church and we sang it during our worship service.

Isang Silip sa Langit

Ptr. Rolly Cayabyab

Sa langit walang lumpo

Doon walang nakakalbo

Mga ngipin ay kumpleto

Good bye na sa pustiso

Sa langit walang bulag

Walang matang nanlalabo

Mga pipi’t, mga bingi

Lahat ay gagaling kay Kristo

Walang pulubi sa langit

Doon walang magkakasakit

Wala na ring magugutom

Lahat tayo’y titira sa mansion

Wala ng graft & corruption

Wala na rin ang polusyon

Doon walang libingan

Buhay ay walang hanggan

Sa langit walang krimen

Good bye na sa kidnapping

Wala na ring mga sugal

Good bye na pati sa jueteng

Sa langit walang brown-out

Walang baha, wala ng lahar

Ginituan ang lansangan

Doon tayo mamasyal

Doon walang nagagalit

Doon wala ng masungit

Doon walang naiinggit

Punung-puno doon ng pag-ibig

In heaven there is no fear

The Prince of Peace is there

Kung nais mo sa langit

Kay Hesus ka kumapit (2x)

Holy Week Vacation

Hubby and I just came home from a 3 days vacation for the holy week. We spent it in the city of pines. We went there with my 2 nephews and their dad and 3 girls who are our relatives. It's refreshing to be in a cool place and my hubby enjoyed the cool weather there. He walked 2 to 3 times a day there. I also had to take the girls around the city because it was their first time to got there. Yesterday I took them to the public market and we bought some fish, veggies and fruits. This morning we took them to Burnham Park then we headed to Camp John Hay for a picnic. We celebrated my nephew's birthday there. We enjoyed the foods, so yummy were the pancit, spaghetti, roasted chicken, lumpia, doughnuts, cake, bananas and some chips and drinks. We had lots of picture taking then we headed to the park and the boys played tennis. After that he headed home and then went back to the lowland.
