Metamorphosis

For several days, through yesterday morning, there was a smooshed sparrow slowly decomposing on the sidewalk on Broadway, on my walk to work. But yesterday, as I was passing it on the way home, my usual greeting of “what up, bird?” was interrupted midstream by my surprise at its appearance. A closer look revealed that someone had replaced the dead bird with a life-size, and lifelike, stuffed toy sparrow.

Whoever did this – if by some cosmic coincidence you read this – your Art did not go unappreciated.

    I thought all of you WordPress fans will find this useful: good instructions on managing the php.ini configuration file. If this file is missing or is placed in a wrong directory, some of your WordPress plugins may not function correctly. Take a look.

    Well, if you are looking for your own vacation home, there’s a really nice place in Rehoboth Beach. I stayed there one summer and it’s just perfect. It’s a very roomy three bedroom home with a deck and all the trimmings. Best part about this place is that it has a mother in law suite with a separate entrance. The suite has its own kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. So you could pay your mortgage by renting it out, while still having a place to call your own. So, take a look: http://www.homeinrehoboth.net They have lots of photos there.

I’m talking Fred Flintstone-age. But once I saw how it works, it made perfect sense to try it myself? ? and what do you know? Flatter stomach; less bodyfat; and better muscle tone.

    Weight gaining diet ? muscle building diet

    There are number of people around the world spending millions of dollars each year on magazines, books, and weight gain supplements. Gaining weight is not an overnight job. It requires a commitment from you, but does not have to be hard if you work out and well balanced diet.

    Also there are numerous people, continually searching for the fastest ways to gain weight and building muscle but they don?t know what to eat, how to eat and for how long to eat.

    If you really want to gain weight and keep it for life then make a diet plan and a proper workout regimen.

    A proper diet plan must include protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Protein is a major component of any diet designed to add body weight. Some excellent sources of protein are lean red meats, fish, poultry, lean beef, turkey and eggs. Try to eat 3 to 5 small meals per day containing large amounts of protein. Protein is also essential for repairing old muscle tissues and building new ones.

    Weight training is also essential for building new muscle tissue. Never try to replace a weight gain supplement with meal use it after a workout, in between meals, or as a snack. Supplements for weight gain are only beneficial when they are used in conjunction with proper diet and perfect weight training regimen.

    At last, increase your calorie intake and try to make a healthy diet plan ? combination of proper diet, perfect weight training program and plenty of sleep for effective muscle building and weight gain. LoseWeight

    Beautiful blog! I genuinely love what you have done here. I’m going to subscribed to your rss feed so I will be able to find your messages when you blog.

    I think you would be impressed with me! I have an HP server in my room (really it’s my friends.) I’m going to make him setup the rss for me. He’s in love with his website and wants me to put it every where I go on the Internet. He is good I guess. All he talks about is search engines and he is nice. So I put his site on sometimes.

    I was studying a book in our library and I was so amazed at the things that the author emphasized in the book. He basically talked about life in general and how people ignore a lot of significant things and allocating most of their time worrying on irrelevant things. My partner and I watched a movie the previous evening and I was so moved with the movie. It was all about a family under pressure because one of them was experiencing from Leukemia . The movie made me understand a lot about life in general and the relevance of family.

I do feel we are close to the end of this down economy and think that the low interest rates we are experiencing in the marketplace will lead our economic recovery. One of my favorite tools is a mortgage calculator. A mortgage calculator is a great tool to use to examine various home loan offers. I used a mortgage payment calculator to examine several offers and it showed me which loan offer would save me more than $80,000 in interest charges. Keep up the great work.

    Portuguese people are sweet toothed! Their specialities include a least two hundred different types of pastries. This national taste to sweets seems to have originated during the Moorish occupation; and in the 15th century there was the sugar cane planted in Madeira. Later on, in the 17th and 18th century, the convents became famous for their pastries, as can be told by the allusive (!) names of their specialities: “toucinho do céu” – heaven’s lard, or “barriga de freiras” – nun’s belly.
