This page will only include links to
some "purely relaxing" and "just for fun"
pages and items ...

more about a LIFESTYLE than just about MONEY... so anything fun and enjoyable are always
priorities to us.
Also feel free to come to this page between 2 trades "to
relax" some and take your eyes and mind off trading for a while ...
This is a great place to enjoy while you are under our "15
minutes" rule for example!

ANSWER to READING TEST:
There are six F's in the sentence.
One of average intelligence finds three of them.
If you spotted four, you're above average.
If you got five, you can turn your nose at most anybody.
If you caught six, you are a genius.
There is no catch. Many people forget the "OF"
's. The human Brain tends to see them as V's and not F's. Pretty weird, huh? It fooled a
lot of people before you so don't be depressed if it got you! ;-)
Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital
room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help
drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only
window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and
families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military
service, where they had been on vacation.
And every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit
he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he
could see outside the window. The man in the other bed began to live
for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and
enlivened by all the activity and color of the world
The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played
on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers
walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color of the
old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline
could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all
this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would
close his eyes and imagine the picturesque
One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing
Although the other man couldn't hear the band - he could see it in his
mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive
words. Days and weeks
One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only
to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died
peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital
attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the
other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was
happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was
left him alone. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow
to take his first look at the world outside. Finally, he would have
the joy of seeing it for himself. He strained to slowly turn to look
out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank
The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate
who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse
responded that the man was blind and could not even see the
said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you."
Epilogue. . . .There is tremendous happiness in making others
despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the
happiness when shared, is doubled. If you want to feel rich, just count
all of the things you have that money can't buy. "Today is a
that's why it is called the present."
His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer.
One day, while trying to eke out a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming
from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.
There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to
free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An
dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer
Fleming had saved.
"I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved myson's life."
"No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer replied, waving
off the offer.
At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel. "Is that
son?" the nobleman asked. "Yes," the farmer replied proudly.
"I'll make you a deal. Let me take him and give him a good education. If the lad is
anything like his father, he'll grow to a man you can be proud of."
And that he did. In time, Farmer Fleming's son graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical
School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir
Alexander Fleming, the
discoverer of Penicillin.
Years afterward, the nobleman's son was stricken with pneumonia.
What saved him? Penicillin.
The name of the nobleman?
Lord Randolph Churchill.
His son's name? Sir Winston Churchill.
Someone once said: What goes around comes around.
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody's watching.
There was a little boy with a bad temper. His father gave him a bag
of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, to hammer a nail in the back fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Then it gradually dwindled down.
He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He
told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his
The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all
the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.
You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say
"I'm sorry", the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.
Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and
encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us. Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND
even if it means sending back to the person who sent it to you.
I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes
midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.
Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.
Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or I can be glad that my
finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.
Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.
Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have
Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.
Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy
because I have a job to do.
Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.
Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel
honored because I've been provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.
Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.
And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping. What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!
Have a GREAT DAY . . . unless you have other plans.
This is a really great and inspirational one (it is only in French for
now... sorry! But we will try to have it translated in English very soon)
Si on pouvait réduire la population du monde en un village de 100 personnes
tout en maintenant les proportions de tous les peuples existant sur la terre, ce
village serait ainsi composé :
14 américains (Nord, Centre et Sud)
Il y aurait :
52 femmes et 48 hommes
30 blancs et 70 non blancs
30 chrétiens et 70 non chrétiens
89 hétérosexuels et 11 homosexuels
6 personnes possèderaient 59% de la richesse totale et tous les 6
seraient originaires des USA
80 vivraient dans des mauvaises maisons
70 seraient analphabètes
50 souffriraient de malnutrition
1 serait en train de mourir
1 serait en train de naître
1 possèderait un ordinateur
1 (oui, un seulement) aurait un diplôme universitaire
Si on considère le monde de cette manière, le besoin d'accepter et de
comprendre devient évident.
Prenez en considération aussi ceci :
Si vous vous êtes levé ce matin avec plus de santé que de maladie, vous êtes
plus chanceux que le million de personnes qui ne verra pas la semaine prochaine.
Si vous n'avez jamais été dans le danger d'une bataille, la solitude de
l'emprisonnement, l'agonie de la torture, l'étau de la faim, vous êtes mieux
que 500 millions de personnes.
Si vous pouvez aller à l'église sans peur d'être menacé, torturé ou tué,
vous avez une meilleure chance que 3 milliards de personnes.
Si vous avez de la nourriture dans votre frigo, des habits sur vous, un toit sur
votre tête et un endroit pour dormir, vous êtes plus riche que les 75% des
habitants de la terre.
Si vous avez de l'argent à la banque, dans votre portefeuille et de la monnaie
dans une petite boite, vous faite partie du 8% les plus privilégiés du monde.
Si vos parents sont encore vivants et toujours mariés, vous êtes des personnes
Si vous lisez ce message, vous venez de recevoir une double bénédiction, parce
que quelqu'un a pensé à vous et parce que vous ne faites pas partie des deux
milliards de personnes qui ne savent pas lire.
