Is it just me or the free service (hosting) is slowly to decline. It has been happening a while now and I feel a little bit uneasy about the slowly closing of some free service (hosting files).
Okay, lets start with google, the search engine giant has been around for a long time, expecting that they will (of course) upgrade their services and improve quality. Just a few months ago (probably in the first quarter of the year), they announced that google pages will be replace (not remove) by the google sites, which means you cannot upload files (to be used in pages). It is understandable though because of the increasing members and population of the web. And most of them applied or used google pages for free storage of their files especially for blogs.
Next with yahoo, I just received an email early this month , stated that yahoo geocities will no longer operate and will be closed (waahh!). To think that it already existed for a long time (I think everyone with geocities account received the email). It is really sad personally because it was the site where I build by first website when I was in high school. Maybe because of the growing popularity of blogsites and the many free blog and social bookmarking services that faded the geocities popularity.
Maybe these companies are now changing strategy when it comes to reaching the internet users. For now, no doubt the social networking sites dominate the web with increasing members and popularity.
I just hope that they will not remove the blogspot free services or make payments out of it in the future.

I have been wondering how cars get to at certain speed. I am truly amazed to see fast cars even in the public street. Though the exterior is common to other cars, it seems that their interior or their machines have a secret that everyone does not know. Come to think of it, fast cars are getting popular especially with the movies and shows regarding cars and how cool they are and popular (mostly to girls). I always dreamed of having my set of wheels not only with very cool exterior but also a very good interior machine.
I have seen a mercedes benz with a mercedes supercharger installed in the car. It really is a very cool to have a turbo charger install in the car. Especially with the additional speed and the durability of the car. It is also supported by other car products and will surely give your car the boost power it needs to go in the tough roads. They also offer super chargers that will fit into many brands. The company also offer other products for your car like car parts, accessories and many more. Getting your car pimped is very important and it will give you the assurance that your engine will be safe and most in condition at all times.

I am currently cleaning my inbox and emails and I found one of the email forward archives.
Two traveling angels
Keep reading to the bottom of the page -- don't
stop at the feet (You'll see).
Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night
in the home of a wealthy family.
The family was rude and refused to let the angels
stay in the mansion's guest room.
Instead the angels were given a small space in
the cold basement.
As they made their bed on the hard floor, the
older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it.
When the younger angel asked why, the older angel
"Things aren't always what they seem."
The next night the pair came to rest at the house
of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his
After sharing what little food they had the couple
let the angels sleep in their bed where they could
have a good night's rest.
When the sun came up the next morning the angels
found the farmer and his wife in tears.
Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole
income, lay dead in the field.
The younger angel was infuriated and asked the
older angel how could you have let this happen?
The first man had everything, yet you helped him,
The second family had little but was willing to
share everything, and you let the cow die.
"Things aren't always what they seem," the older
"When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I
noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the
Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and
unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the
wall so he wouldn't find it."
"Then last night as we slept in the farmers bed,
the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him
the cow instead.
Things aren't always what they seem."
Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things
don't turn out the way they should. If you have
faith, you just need to trust that every out come
is always to your advantage. You just might not
know it until some time later...

Behind every successful man is a woman.
In the case of Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, there are several women, one of them being his supermom, Dionisia Pacquiao, now better known not just as Aling Dionisia but for the more sosyal monicker Mommy Dionisia.
A scene-stealer in her own right, Mommy Dionisia never fails to keel over into a dead faint everytime she watches Pacman fight, clutching a rosary and fervently praying to her favorite Sto. Niño to spare her son from the punches.
She became an overnight celebrity in the wake of Pacman’s recent title bout with Ricky Hatton (knocked out in the second round) when she marked her belated “debut” at 60 with a bongga party in their native GenSan, dancing as if there were no tomorrows and changing designer clothes no less than five times. The event (yes, it was an EVENT) was covered “live” by TV, with Pacman, the dutiful and pampering son, watching with gleeful approval from the sidelines, happily leaving the spotlight to his mom. A new Dancing Queen was born.
Two Saturdays ago, Conversations caught Mommy Dionisia at the dressing room of the new GMA Studios being made up for her dancing exhibition on Startalk with her favorite D.I. (Dance Instructor), wearing the red dress that she said was given to her by Lucy Torres when she guested on Lucy’s TV5 show Shall We Dance?.
Mommy Dionisia turned out to be quite a delight even off the dancefloor.
To retain the flavor and the flow, Conversations is retelling the free-flowing exchange as is, in Visayan-Tagalog that is.
Hindi na daw Aling Dionisia ang tawag sa’yo ngayon.
“Hindi na. Mommy Dionisia na. Ang spelling ng pangalan ko, panay ‘i,’ walang ‘e’. D-I-O-N-I-S-I-A. Dionisia.”
Aware ka ba na celebrity ka na ngayon?
“Siempre. Hindi naman mapigilan ‘yan, eh. Ako ang nagbigay buhay sa anak kong si Manny kaya kung gaano siya kasikat ganoon din ako.”
Hindi ka ba naba-bother na maraming nakakakilala sa’yo kapag lumalabas ka?
“Okay lang kapag nasa mall ako at maraming nagha-’Hi!’ sa akin at kumakaway. Mga fans ko sila, eh.”
Talaga bang mahilig na kayong sumayaw from way back?
“Oo naman. Basta type mo ang sayaw, madali kang matuto at maturuan.”
Anu-anong dance ang type mo?
“Tango, Cha-Cha, Boogie at Swing. Ang unang tinuro sa akin ng mga D.I. ay Swing.”
Linawin natin, Mommy Dionisia, ha. Nanliligaw daw ba sa’yo ang D.I. mo?
“A, hindi totoo. ‘Yung humahawak sa akin ngayon, bagong D.I. ko. ‘Yung dati, nag-abroad daw. Pinalitan ko dahil hindi niya kaya ang mga lifting. Maliit lang kasi siya, eh.”
Bakit, mabigat ka ba?
“Hindi. Ang weight ko 45 kilos lang. Matagal kami hindi nakasayaw. Sabi niya, ‘Mommy, bumigat ka’.”
What’s your height ba?
“Ay, nakalimutan ko. Nandoon sa cedula ko.”
Paano mo mini-maintain ang figure mo?
“Naga-gym ako sa GenSan, doon sa mall.”
Ano pang ibang workout mo? Hindi ba kayo nagba-boxing ni Manny?
“Hindi. Dancing lang talaga ang exercise ko. Tinuruan ko nga si Manny pero hindi siya marunong. Malambot man ang katawan niya. Sa bahay, naga-workout din ako habang nanonood ng aerobic na video. Anim na posisyon ‘yon. Ginagaya ko.”
At ano naman ang diet mo?
“Ang pagkain ko, control; hindi sobra. Sa breakfast, normal lang. Hindi man ako magkain ng chichiria kasi bawal. Ang favorite food ko? Seafood.”
Kumusta naman ang love life mo?
“Okay naman. Love life ko ang mga apo ko.”
Okay ba kayo ng “ex” mo, ‘yung father ni Manny?
“Okay naman kami. Wala naman akong ano sa kanya. Puwede ba huwag na natin pag-usapan ‘yon? Sixteen years na akong walang asawa. Happy na ako magtingin sa mga apo ko. Kumpleto na ako.”
A, okay. Sa security mo naman. Balita ko marami ka raw bodyguard dahil may mga nagha-harrass sa’yo.
“Kasi maraming intriga. Sobra! Sabi nila nagsha-shopping ako ng P1 million nga pera. Sobra naman na balita!”
Peso o dollar?
“Peso. Bago ako nagpunta sa US, nagbili ako ng skinny jeans nga itim. One thousand pesos lang ‘yon. At saka mga blouse. Hindi naman mahal. Sabi ko, itigil na ang mga ganyang balita dahil nasisira ang pagkatao ko. Pagkatapos, may threat ako na kikidnapin. Matagal na akong may bodyguard. Dati dalawa. Ngayong may threat ako, apat na.”
Balita ko tatlo daw ang cell phone n’yo.
“A, ang CP ko? Oo, tatlo. Iba-iba ang number. Dala ko palagi lahat. Isa Globe, isa Smart at isa TM.”
Noong 60th “debut” mo, kung ilang beses ka nagpalit ng gown.
“Lima ang damit ko. Dalawang gown at tatlo ang pang-dancing. Para daw ako nag-debut na 18 years old. ‘Yung sa akin, debut na 60! Hahahaha!”
A, so hindi ka nakapag-debut noong 18 years old ka?
Naaalala mo ba kung saan ka nandoon noong nag-18 years old ka?
“Nakalimutan ko na. May asawa na ako noon. Nang nag-asawa ako, 16 lang ako. Nang 17 ako, nanganak na ako, ‘yung panganay kong anak na namatay. Apat ang buhay kong anak — si Sidra, si Manny, si Bobby at si Ruel, ‘yung barangay captain.”
Spoiled na spoiled ka ni Manny, ano?
“Hindi naman. Nang nakita niya ‘yung gown ko, nagulat siya. Sabi niya, ‘Mang, ‘yan ba ang isuot mo sa birthday mo?’ Sabi ko, ‘Oo.’ Sabi niya, ‘Ang ganda!’ Binigyan niya ako ng pera, malaki-laki.”
“Sobra 25 dollars.”
“Twenty-five thousand dollars ‘yon. Sabi niya, ‘Kayo na ang magbili ng gusto mo, ‘Mang’.”
Naubos mo ‘yon sa shopping? Almost one million pesos ‘yon.
“Bumili ako ng mga damit, mga bag.”
Ilan na ba ang mga bag mo ngayon?
“Marami na. May mga Louis Vuitton.”
Mga gown ilan?
“Marami na rin. Dalawa galing sa US. ‘Yung iba dito lang sa Pilipinas pinagawa.”
Sa dami na rin daw ng shoes mo, talo mo na daw si Imelda.
“A, hindi naman! Simple naman ako na pagka-nanay.”
Uy, magmo-model ka daw kay Dr. Vicki Belo.
“Hindi ako. ‘Yung manugang kong si Jinkee.”
Hindi mo pa ba kailangan magpa-lipo?
“Hindi pa. Marunong naman ako mag-alaga sa katawan ko. Naga-exercise ako; naga-gym ako.”
Pero nag-i-spa ka na siempre.
“Oo naman. Madalas. Sa GenSan.”
May commercial ka na daw ba?
“Mayroon. Pero hindi pa naga-labas. Sa July 19, ilalabas na kaya mag-iikot kami sa lahat ng mga estasyon sa radyo at TV.”
Lumalabas ka sa TV at ngayon sa commercial. Sa pelikula ba lalabas ka na rin?
“Ayoko, baka mapagod ako. Okay lang sa commercial, hindi matagal.”
Sa sitcom ayaw mo?
“Ayaw ko rin.”
Bagay daw kayo magkasama ni Annabelle sa pelikula.
“Si Annabelle Rama? ‘Yung sa My Monster Mom? Napanood ko ‘yon. Uy, kilala ko si Annabelle Rama. Nanonood ‘yon ng boksing ni Manny sa Las Vegas.”
Uy, saan pala ‘yung Rolex na birthday gift sa’yo ni Manny? Bakit hindi mo suot?
“A, tinago ko. Muntik kasi natanggal kanina n’ung naga-praktis kami ng dancing. Baka malaglag uli, masira. Sayang. Mahal pa naman. 300,000 ‘yan.”
‘Yung car na binigay sa’yo ni Manny, ginagamit mo ba?
Kumusta ‘yung house?
“Si Manny ang nagpagawa n’un. May darating pa; ipapagawa din ni Manny. Doon sa GenSan. Malaki. ‘Yung first na bahay namin, medyo maliit. Two hundred square meters lang.”
Ilang square meters ‘yung tatayuan ng bagong bahay?
“Six hundred square meters.”
Kayo ba ni Jinkee okay na? May gap daw kayo noon?
‘Yung hindi okay sa isa’t-isa.
“A, wala. Okay kami. Noong bago kasi silang kasal ni Manny, mahiyain siya. Ako, nanay, marunong magdala ng mga anak; marunong ako magdala sa kay Jinkee. Hindi na siya mahiyain ngayon. Si Jinkee nga ang nag-asikaso sa birthday ko; sila-sila.”
Sa mga pagbabago sa buhay mo, ano ang pinaka-gusto mo?
“Siempre, nagustuhan ko ang pagda-dance ko, lalo na mga fans ko. Maraming naga-hanga sa akin.”
Mayroon ka bang Fans Day?
“Wala pa. Pero proud sila sa akin. Alam ko dahil marami ang naga-greet sa akin kapag nasa mall ako.”
Kung gagawing pelikula ang buhay mo, sino ang gusto mong gumanap ng Mommy Dionisia?
“Ang gusto ni Manny, ako mismo.”
Mayroon na kayo lahat. Ano pa ba ang mahihiling mo?
“Ang hinihiling ko lang sa Panginoon, sana bigyan ako ng mahaba pang buhay para makasama ko pa ang pamilya ko, mga friends ko, mga fans ko.”
Ano ba ang tunay na Mommy Dionisia? Paki-describe nga po.
“Mabait ako. Simpleng tao lang ako. Magaling magbigay ng payo sa mga anak. Magaling magpalaki sa mga anak. ‘Yan ako.”
I have been looking for an email client that can handle various emails as well as to organize them, as I research the web I narrowed my choices into two, that is the Microsoft Mozilla Outlook and the Microsoft Outlook.
I have used Microsoft Outlook at look for a very long time now, and so far, it is very good in terms of organizing email and not to mention the synchronization capabilities with different software applications and other utilities. Yep, I used it a lot especially with my projects and I can't really say something negative really. But there is just one thing, it's "Windows" (no offense). Personally, I prefer something free (open source that is). And I found this other email client (actually the second in the list next to outlook). The Mozilla thunderbird, as expected from an open source, its free! (duh), and it also supports different mail clients and has functionality similar to outlook. It is also lightweight which means , you don't have to install the whole package (like Microsoft Office) in the system.
Setting up thunderbird is also easy and straightforward, they have also an option to setup directly for gmail(google) account and sets it up fairly simple. It is really important to organize your emails especially when you have lots of them and organize them accordingly to your preference.
Download Thunderbird for free here.

This is a masterpiece. If you have not read it, take the time to read it now. If you have read it, take time to read it again! It speaks a lot about truths in life and what's happening now.
GEORGE CARLIN (His wife recently died....and George followed her, dying July 2008)
Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate.
A Message by George Carlin:
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less.. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

It seems that no one can stop the Federer Express, not this time, not even for the longest match in Singles Men's final history. I can consider myself already lucky to be in this generation and witnessed the greatest tennis player of all time play live (television),and do what no one has ever done in the sport.
Just recenlty he defeated the american Andy Roddick in an epic five setter match, in more than 4 hours of great tennis.
I'll just create the list to describe about this Wimbledon achievement by Federer.
1. 15 Grand Slam Titles Surpassing Pete Sampras of 14
2. Return his rankings to world number 1
3. Longest match in Wimbledon Men's Final
4. Glued his position as the 'Greatest Player of All Time'
5. ..Still hungry to win more
6. lists goes on..
It's just amazing to watch him play and how people admire his presence in and off court. Just as what Pete Sampras said, "he is not only a legend but an icon". We will sure see more of Roger Federer victorious in the future.
