Sometimes you might actually find something good in the news sites, here's just one of the stories.
When a deer became stranded in the middle of an iced-over Canadian harbor, officers from Nova Scotia's Department of Natural Resources (DNR) came to the rescue, though it was no easy feat. The ice covering Antigonish Harbour was too thin to for a DNR team to risk walking across. Instead, helicopter pilot Dave Farrell devised a clever way to rescue the deer by using the aircraft's rotors the literally blow the deer to safety.

Money by the buckets can be seen in the streets of Greece everywhere, in short the Euro (€ EUR) was a foolish thing to do for this particular country since they don't have big industrial trading beside tourism, as Shakespeare said:
"A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool."

In 1999 the currency was born virtually and in 2002 notes and coins began to circulate. It rapidly took over from the former national currencies and slowly expanded behind the rest of the EU. In 2009 the Lisbon Treaty formalised its political authority, the Euro Group, alongside the European Central Bank.
In June 2012, the euro fell below US$1.24 for the first time in almost two years, following concerns raised over Greek debt and Spain's troubled banking sector.
It was before the Euro:
My wife and I, love Greece, this is where we were married for the first time, it was a surprise wedding on a vacation trip, with a small party only among friends -we travelled with, we did not plan it, but once there we thought it would be cool to unite in Santorini, Thira, it's an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast from Greece's mainland. After we went back to Geneva, we found out that the marriage would not have been valid in Switzerland, so we married again at the major's office in a civil wedding, and one more party with our amusing group of friends! Since that day, this month we step into our 13th year - all blissful love...

There's only one person I know in this planet that would not be scared to jump into a frozen lake or sea and not get hypothermia, because it feels comfy for this person to do so, can you guess who that is?
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012!!

It’s been a long time that I made an effort to write something nice for my wife Delphine, since tonight she’s already fast asleep, I thought of writing something nice for her to be surprised by. Here’s what I wrote while the rain outside inspired me.
RAINDROPS for my Love!
These raindrops were forlorn
They fell in the midst of a storm
The only redeemed feature it had
Was to fuse with a loving kiss
If, when we met pouring rain fell
The fall puddle came into our trance
Then - in the notch of two hearts
It gave life into tender lifeforms
My hopes were to carve up love...
Then giving nature’s tears a branch
So it can live as deliberated as adored
Then inhabit wildly within our hearts.
As you well know, I love you more!
This will me printed and displayed at the breakfast table tomorrow morning…
(and rest assure, I'm not a professional poet, and I do have day-job!)

DOCUMENTARY WITH VERY FEW WORDS!
Mostly Music!! Dedicated to my friend ELDO that fought in Vietnam!! And at the end of the video the last soldier said: "They say we're are fighting for something, I don't know..."
"Child in Time" is a song by British hard rock band Deep Purple. Featured on their 1970 album Deep Purple in Rock, the song is 10 minutes and 18 seconds long. It is a protest song to Vietnam War.
Documentary Video: 'Vietnam the ten thousand day war'
Deep Purple - Child In Time
The video features hardship of the Vietnam War!
(Warning: graphic historical war images)
Sweet child in time you'll see the line
The line that's drawn between the good and the bad
See the blind man shooting at the world
Bullets flying taking toll
If you've been bad, Lord I bet you have
And you've been hit by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes and bow your head
And wait for the ricochet

World wide countries have built walls for security, here are some walls you might want to examine!
For instance, the peace lines or peace walls are a series of separation barriers in Northern Ireland that separate Catholic and Protestant neighbourhoods. They have been built at urban interface areas in Belfast, Derry, Portadown and elsewhere... more in the video
Walls In The World
A separation barrier is a wall or fence constructed to limit the movement of people across a certain line or border, or to separate two populations.
These structures vary in placement with regard to international borders and topography. The most famous example of a separation barrier is probably the Great Wall of China, a series of barriers separating the Empire of China from nomadic powers to the north; the most prominent recent example was the Berlin Wall that separated the enclave of West Berlin from the rest of East Germany during most of the Cold War era.

All from the Middle East and one crazier than the other!! This is why religion should be abolished, it creates hatred and violence not love! This comes days after survey results taken in 2010 were released that found; 52% of irish catholics want to remain in the UK and 33% of irish catholics want a united Ireland. 90% of protestants want to remain in the UK. It appears that the vast majority of the people in Northern Ireland support remaining in the Union.

Belfast violence flares again as police attacked
The BBC's Mark Simpson reports from lower Newtownards Road in east Belfast
Violence has flared for a second night at a sectarian interface near a Catholic enclave in east Belfast.
Petrol bombs, missiles and fireworks have been thrown at police lines in the lower Newtownards Road-Short Strand area of east Belfast on Tuesday.
Two water canon vehicles have been brought to the area but have not been used yet.
There is a significant police presence in the area following Monday's sectarian clashes.
The trouble has been reported as the most serious in the area for a decade.
Earlier on Tuesday a senior police officer described shots aimed at officers during rioting in east Belfast on Monday night as "attempted murder".
Violence erupted at the interface at about 2100 BST on Monday.

Is there a heaven? What kind of heaven is there up-there after we died? Thousands of years since Pharaoh times people have asked these questions without logical results! Great artist have depicted heaven as they saw it fit to their imagination as seen in this wonderful painting!
The Bible and other holy books have enticed those imaginary vision for thousand of people throughout several millenniums even before founded religious beliefs. In the video editorial (here below at the link) Martin J. Millett gives his idea of heaven!
A Soul brought to Heaven 1878, William-Adolphe Bouguereau. William-Adolphe Bouguereau was a French academic painter (November 30, 1825 – August 19, 1905
Who Wants Heaven?
Who really wants to spend eternity imperfectly praising a perfect being?
My personal thought on this is that sadly there's bad news, there's no 72 virgins in Christian heaven? Good thing I'm going to Atheist's heaven - I won't tell you what's up there for people like me, then it will become too crowded and I may not get enough of my rewarding eternity!!!
Great thought Martin, as always just so clever and nicely said!!

What's the secret of long life?
Juana Rodriguez said: "only a few of her friends are alive" Few alive? I bet all of her school-mates died ages ago!! She is unique!
My wife's grandmother made 80 last week, we called her to wish a "Happy Birthday" it was 10-AM where she lives and we were told that she was out on the slopes already and she won't be back before lunch!! She skies all winter on daily basis with her grand-children and great grand-children, just like a 30 year old ... she is very active, we all think she will also make past the 100s, easy!! She is very active in the summer too, she swims at least for an hour every day in the morning... then, in the afternoon she plays tennis... at one time she totally wore me out and won the set!!
Check this woman out she is 126 today!! Happy Birthday Juana!!
Cuban Juana Rodriguez looked to be enjoying her 126th birthday Wednesday, even if her status as the world's oldest person isn't recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. She marked the occasion with family, friends and a cake. (Feb. 3)

Thumbs up to all the bloggers for keeping the conversation alive with interesting topics. I know I haven't been much around or posting but you know how it is when you have a family with children, they come first and it's a lifetime achievement with a lot of passion and loving care!! Best of times throughout life!
Which brings me to a few more important issues I found around the web, that should improve world peace if followed for the future to end radicalism that destroys thousands of lives!!
1 - WHEN will AMERICA take care of themselves instead of helping out eastern rebels? Because it's starting to affect everyone around the world!
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced aid projects worth $7.5bn (£5bn) for Pakistan at the start of talks in the capital, Islamabad.
The five-year package, which was agreed by Congress last year, includes projects for two hydro-electric dams.
Mrs Clinton said the US wanted to show it cared about ordinary Pakistanis, not just securing Islamabad's co-operation in the fight against militants.
She is en route to a major donor conference in Afghanistan on Tuesday.
2 - RELIGION is getting wackier by the day, here's some proven utter about it!
Holy Analogies Batman!
If there is a God, whomever, wherever or whatever brought that lie up to the masses to flock into, it isn't the same one... it's just another recruiting trap for the feeble minded!! Martin . Yes, as usual, nice dialogue catcher!!
Muslims believe in the same God as Christians! How many times do we have to hear that lie?
3 - There's a man that has an opinion but he gets the raw end of things! Pat Condell critics on about everything that concerns religion, and I admire him for that, but of course America apologists always find a way to give a chance to their enemies to spew out their hatred on them... in other words America likes to be picked on by everyone that hates them so they give them every excuse in the book to do so - does September 11 2001 ring a bell to them? Martin J. Willett defends Pat Condell, bravo on that!!
Pat Condell is NOT a Racist
Why I ended my longest subscription, to The Amazing Atheist.
4 - Women oppression to be liberated? What side of freedom are we talking about? The comment about Voltaire among the panellists is absolutely daft, he died in 1778 - French women then weren't allowed to show their ankles, if he lived now he would most probably see the radical BURQA etc as a demise of women's liberty and freedom... are these radical women so brainwashed that they cannot see it?
BBC: Is Burqa Ban Islamophobic?
