Food for Thought

A very rich man brought his son to the country side and visited a poor farm, in hoping that his son will realize how lucky and previleged he was.

After a day of visit, and back in their expensive car, he asked his son "So, my dear son, what do you think of today's outing?"

To which his son replied,

"I see that they have three dogs, and we have only one. While we have a large swimming pool, they have a long stream that runs behind their farm. We have a large garden that stretches to the end of our property, but they have a huge field that has no end. We have exclusive lightings in our mansion, but they have beautiful stars in the sky.

Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we are."

The father is, of course, speechless.

Hi Sweetpea, good moral story that.
To me, being rich is having good friends.
So? How's the weather there?
Wow, your blog really hi-tech, got moving signs etc.
My computer is real jurassic, about 13 years old, still on ME too.
When my young friends come over and see my computer, ahhh, but my monitor BIGGER than theirs, they hear I am on ME, not XP, or XY or whatever, they say, "WHAT"?
Eeeeyaaa, somemore say, "wa uncle, so old fashion one la". Ha ha.
Ahh, but I can still tell stories, chat with you, right? Ha ha. Kow tim.
You have a nice day, Sweetpea...hey! Haven't see you awhile and you pop in at my milestone, ha ha. Thanks. Appreciate your warm greetings. See ya. UL.
