spreads through mountainous terrain near Big Bear Lake.

The wildfire, which ravaged more than 15,000 acres (6,100 hectares), prompted a mandatory
evacuation of Fawnskin earlier this week.
Two days of high humidity and low temperatures enabled firefighters to contain most of the blaze.
Already this year, 70,546 wildfires have raged throughout the United States,
charring more than eight million acres (three million hectares), according to the National I…

Appraisal and Resignation


In appraisal meeting they will speak only about your weakness, errors and failures.     

In resignation meeting they will speak only about your strengths, past achievements and success.


In appraisal you may need to cry and beg for even 10% hike.     

In resignation you can easily demand (or get even without asking) more than 50-60% hike.



During appraisal, they will deny promotion saying you didn't meet the expectation, you don't have leadership qualities, and you had several drawbacks in our objective/goal.     

During resignation, they will say you are the core member of team; you are the vision of the company how can you go, you have to take the project in shoulder and lead your juniors to success.



There is 90% chance for not getting any significant incentives after appraisal.     

There is 90% chance of getting immediate hike after you put the resignation.

CONCERNED ABOUT TOO MANY CARBS IN YOUR DIET?

For those of you who watch what you eat,
here's the final word on nutrition and health.
It's a relief to know the truth
after all those conflicting
nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than
Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

6. The Afrikaners eat lots of braai vleis and drink beer and brandewyn and watch rugby and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION

Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you!


.....SO NOU PRAAT ONS NET AFRIKAANS !!!!!!

How many men does it take to open a beer?
None. It should be opened when she brings it.

Why is a Laundromat a really bad place to pick up a woman?
Because a woman who can't even afford a washing machine will probably never be able to support you.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Why do women have smaller feet than men?
It's one of those "evolutionary things" that allows
Them to stand closer to the kitchen sink.
------------------------------------------------------------------
How do you know when a woman is about to say something smart?
When she starts a sentence with "A man once told me..."
------------------------------------------------------------------
How do you fix a woman's watch?
You don't. There is a clock on the oven.

Inheritance

When John found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed a woman to enjoy it with.So one evening he went to a singles bar where he spotted the most beautiful womanhe had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away."I may look like just an ordinary man" he said as he walked up to her "but in just a week or two, my father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars."Impressed, the woman went home with him that evening and, three days later, she became his stepmother.Women are so much smarter than men.The website:  http://www.eposvriende.comThe Yahoo group:  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eposvriende  Subscribe: eposvriende-subscribe@yahoogroups.com The Google group:     http://groups.google.com/group/eposvriende

Let's Watch The Sunset

I want to watch the sunsetIwant to see it in your eyesI want to feel it in your bodyAn erotic passion in disguiseI want to hear the wavesCrash angry on the shoreIwant to fell your hands explore meWhile all around us the water poors.I want to feel the sand between my fingersSmall the salt in the airI want to feel your tounge go through meSecret places if you dare!I want to feel the heatOf a restless summer niteI want to kiss you softlyBeneath the pale moonliteI want to meet the starsThat lie hidden in the depthBaby will you take meTo watch the sunset ?

Like a Dream

Like A Dream
Here I sit, thinking only of you
Wondering what is to become of us
Understanding all you have been through
Hoping to slowly gain your trust

My heart aches for you, and also I yearn
I want to understand you
In hopes that I will learn

Your unique and special qualities amaze me
Your smile
Your mind

Your voice and its beautiful sound
Your eyes
Your hair

Your ability to cheer me up
When you see that I am down
My feelings for you go beyond that of words
And at first it didn't seem real

But that just taught me a lesson
In doubting what I feel
It seems I dreamed you into life

And the reason for my stare
The bluest sky
The deepest sea
Don't even compare

Becky, you're so very special in every single way
And thoughts of you
Run through my head
Every hour of the day

I hope that you will understand
Just how I feel about you
I want to be your guiding hand
For all that you go through





Naples & more

Flamboyant in close-up, a cowry is well disguised at a distance in the fluffy arms of pink-and-white soft coral.
The mollusk's body covers its shell, polishing it to the famous cowry sheen.



The ruins of an abandoned restaurant offer a view of the future for the towns closest to the volcano.


Scarred by minor eruptions, Vesuvius hovers menacingly above Naples, a mere nine miles (14.5 kilometers) away.
A major explosion could shatter the crater, destroy the city, and ravage the entire region.

The world's most dangerous volcano looms over the lives of three million people in southern Italy.
An eruption in A.D. 79 buried the town of Pompeii (near the white spire, at center), but new research
indicates the next blast could be much bigger.

Spaghetti

Spaghetti
 For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman.  One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant.  Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage,  He paid her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child.  If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.
She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born.  To keep it discreet, he told her to simply mail him a post card,  and write "Spaghetti" on the back.  He would then arrange for the child support payments to begin.
One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife. "Honey, "she said, "you received a very strange post card today." "Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later," he said.  The wife obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.
On the card was written:
"Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, S…

Dog Story

Image
Had to pass this on to members of our family and friends who love & own animals










The story begins with the rescuers finding this poor little guy they named Ralphie.
Someone had already taken him under their wing but weren't equipped to adopt;



Ralphie, scared and starved, joined his rescuers...




I wouldn't think anything could live thru this...

but we were wrong.


This little lady also survived that wreckage.



Here she is just placed in the car - scared, but safe.



and then...they are no longer alone!




Instant friends, they comforted each other while in the car.




Add two more beagles found after that...



the more, the merrier!




Oh boy, a new traveler to add to the mix...

(note: the cat coming over the seat needing shelter...)

now just how is this going to work?...and remember they are all strange to one another....



It's going to work just fine, thank you very much!



Wow! The things we learn from our animal friends...

If only all of mankind could learn such valuable lessons
