After my previous experiences, I'm very hesitant to get involved with any woman, for fear of the 'suffer ring' that the Venerable mentioned. But I do have a cat who lives with me, maybe I could give her some chopped liver today as a special treat :pig: She would certainly love me mucho mucho for that... :D

But I'm truly happy for you, Yarawes. :smile: A household where husband and wife are both Buddhist must be much more harmonious and peaceful than what I experienced. I wish you many beautiful ornaments, both the physical ones and the 'ornaments for the mind'. I hope that you and your husband can walk the Path together.

Dear Members....more beautiful gem jewelry/information for gem-lovers.

Image

Tourmaline is classified as a semi-precious stone and the gemstone comes in a wide variety of colors. The name comes from the Sinhalese word "Thuramali" (තුරමලි) or "Thoramalli" (තෝරමල්ලි), which applied to different gemstones found in Sri Lanka, Brazil, USA.

Brazilian untreated bi-color tourmaline Mined and cut in Brazil..very expensive!

Gorillas In The Mist!!

Postby yawares » Sat Feb 23, 2013 1:11 pm

Dear Members,

Yesterday, I watched the movie 'GORILLAS IN THE MIST'....very good indeed. :twothumbsup:

Image

Gorillas in the Mist is a 1988 American drama film directed by Michael Apted and starring Sigourney Weaver as naturalist Dian Fossey. It tells the true-life story of her work in Rwanda with Mountain Gorillas and was nominated for five Academy Awards.

A Kentucky woman named Dian Fossey (Sigourney Weaver) is inspired by the anthropologist Louis Leakey (Ian Cuthbertson) to devote her life to the study of primates. To this end, she writes ceaselessly to him for a job cataloguing and studying the rare mountain gorillas of Africa. With some effort, she manages to convince Leakey of her conviction and devotion to the cause at hand after personally approaching him following a lecture on his part in 1966. Thereafter, Fossey embarks into the Congo, where Leakey and his foundation equip her with the necessary equipment and housing to achieve personal contact with the gorillas, and introduce her to a local animal tracker, Sembagare (John Omirah Miluwi), to assist her in her endeavors. Settling deep in the jungle, Fossey and Sembagare manage to locate a troop of gorillas, but they are ultimately displaced by the events of an ongoing civil war after being forcibly evicted from their research site by Congolese soldiers, who accuse Fossey of being a foreign spy and agitator.

*********
I must say that this is a top movie...and I like it very much...wish you all watch it too, that's why I don't tell you how the movie end.

Love it! :heart:

Thor And The Flight To Athens, Greece

Postby yawares » Thu Feb 28, 2013 4:13 pm

Dear Members,

Please come fly with me again...this time to Athens, Greece.

The Acropolis of Athens, with the Parthenon
Image
*******
Once we flew out of Karachi, Pakistan...after 4 days off. We all were so fresh on board, Thor, the super handsome steward who looked/built so much like Rock Hudson(Hollywood actor) was in such a good mood he decorated the food trolley for the first class so beautifully with 2 small Viking ships made from bananas/toothpicks/red cherries.To see him is to love him..his blue-eyes so blue..his golden blond hair reminded me of the song "Close To You": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mp6iz--LitA

He told me his name 'Thor' means 'God of thunder', we worked together in the first class. 2 fc.passengers took pictures of us..my head was only level to his shoulder, he was tall/looked like a Greek god. And he was very nice, when we stopped in Athens for 40 mins at the airport, a local woman came up to clean the cabin, when she finished and about to leave..Thor put fruits/beautiful decorated chocolate desserts(left over from serving) in 2 bags and gave to the cleaner..she was so happy!!!.
R
Then the pilot in command told us about the engine trouble, we had to announce indefinite delay, passengers were transported to a hotel. And all crews were so happy to tour Athens during delay 1 day( until we got the spare part for the engine).During the tour, I was sitting by the 2nd pilot and he told me that Thor lived in with his Swedish pilot-friend, Thor is a gayman!!!

Coincidently...Rock Hudson was a gayman too, he died of HIV years ago. Many SAS stewards I worked with were gay-men and a few of them graduated from Chef-school.

Yes yes...Athens is so beautiful..Acropolis/Athens Harbor/Athens Marina!!!

Re: Milli Vanilli Death

Postby yawares » Tue Mar 05, 2013 3:18 pm

Dear Members,

Today I read the news:
Fabrice Morvan -- better known as one half of duo Milli Vanilli -- tells TMZ ... he's sort of a trailblazer ... because nowadays almost EVERYBODY in pop music lip-syncs their songs.
------------------
But definitely not Vanessa Williams!

Miss USA: Vanessa L. Williams
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vanessa Lynn Williams (born March 18, 1963), known professionally as Vanessa L. Williams or Vanessa Williams, is an American singer, actress, producer and former fashion model. In 1983, she became the first African American woman crowned Miss America, but a scandal arose when Penthouse magazine bought and published nude photographs of her. She relinquished her title early and was succeeded by the first runner-up, Suzette Charles of New Jersey. Williams rebounded by launching a career as an entertainer, earning multiple Grammy, Emmy, and Tony Award nominations. She is the most successful former Miss America winner in the field of entertainment.
