Wise Musings

As I look around, I see so much waste. People read about the three Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) but not many seem to do much about it. Even though it is mentioned in TV, advertised on the internet, bill boards, etc., the majority of people don't really seem to comprehend the fact that we live in a finite world and it will not be so long before we run out of resources. When we say "not be so long", I believe people shrug their shoulders, generally thinking some decades off in the future so there is plenty of time to handle problems later.

It seems like most people eat cornflakes and presume that cornflakes are cornflakes - all the same, whoever makes them.

Well, I'm here to tell you this is NOT the case.  We found out the hard way that even cornflakes can be poorly made.

My husband and I were at the Indian store getting other items when he saw cornflakes there.  Remembering the ones he had eaten in India as being just as good as the ones he had eaten in the US, he said "let's get these".  So we did.

MANILA, Philippines - Globe Telecom Inc. saw its consolidated net income drop by 10% to P2.7 billion in the first quarter of 2012, as the telecommunications company continued to make significant investments in subscriber acquisitions and network infrastructure.

Globe's profits declined even as its first quarter consolidated service revenues hit an all-time high of P20.2 billion, 6% higher than last year's P19.1 billion. This was attributed to sustained growth in Globe's mobile, broadband and fixed line segments.

MANILA, Philippines - With less than two weeks left before the Year of the Water Dragon, the Chinese (and other believers of Chinese superstition) are beginning to plan their Lunar New Year menus, which revolve around attracting good luck and deflecting negative energy.

A dish or food item is considered "lucky" either because of its appearance, or the way the Chinese word for it sounds. The Chinese word for fish, yu, for instance, sounds like the word for riches and abundance.
