How Can Love Hold On So Many Years?

How can love hold on so many years?
A passion lasts, we're told, not more than two.
Pleasure is more rich when passion clears,
Pouring forth from love to love renew.
Years of love can gather to an ocean
Tormented in its wild constancy.
When there's no wind, it seems bereft of motion;
Eastward, though, the waves roll wild and free.
No love can last unless there is the will.
Tapestries are woven by design.
Years pass and love continues, stronger still
For all the daily care to make it shine.
In life, if there is one, then we are blessed,
For whom we can be totally undressed;
Take off our selves and find our spirits fair;
Hunger for sweet love, and it is there.

Let me not....

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments.
Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

-- William Shakespeare

The 23rd Thing!

I have arrived at last.I look back in awe of what I have achieved since taking up the challenge of Web 2 and I have come to the conclusion this experience has been a great learning curve for me.I love the image generators, I created my own chocolate bar called the Forrestbabe Delight, have my own street named after me, and have my name printed on sand at the beach.
I have enjoyed the social networking part, because it has given me the opportunity to look at other sites such as Facebook and myspace. I am a bebo fan myself and I find that I can apply more applications on my blog that on my bebo page. I have learned about RSS feeds, Wiki,De.licious,Zoho Writer, Google Docs, E-books, podcasts, and last but not least is YouTubes my absolute favourite discovery so far.

Check out the above site for e-books. There is a list of the top 100 E-Books and also the top 100 authors, and you get to do a search on its catalog.
I came across this e- book called"The count of Monte Cristo" which can be read online or downloaded for free.


What is Podcast?
The word is a combination of the words broadcast and ibod Apples MP3 has a list of the most listened to and watched podcasts for the month.I have already signed up and have subscribed to Modiba Afrikast Series.I have itunes downloaded on my home computer, and when I have time I will add the list to my blog.

Redemption song sung by my cousins Christian and Betty at our family reunion 2007

Where do I start? I had such a great time on You Tubes, that I got a bit carried away this weekend with watching all the videos that before long I had spent hours just watching one after the other. I did a search and came across this song that my cousins from America sang at our family reunion in Samoa at the end of last year.I also got to watch perfomances from others of some of my favourite Samoan songs.You Tube can be used in libraries to provide visual aids for teaching the patrons how to use the catalogue efficiently and effectively.

What I like about Zoho writer:
The documents can be saved online, and can be accessed anywhere, no need to carry USB or disks around.
I can export this file as a Word or .txt file document, which makes it easy to use inside Word
Email feature is easy to use. This document can be emailed as a Word file, .pdf document,etc
being able to publish a document as a public file.
being able to use Zoho as a text editor and then publish document on blog
love all the features especially the strikethrough.
Will definitely point this out to some of our learn net users....Its about preferences and choices really.
