A friend of mine sent me this story by email. I thought it would be good to post it here. When you read the last paragraph, think about what we’ve reviewed so far in Proverbs…


While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked up stone
and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man
took the child’s hand and hit it many times; not realizing he was using
a wrench.

At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple
fractures. When the child saw his father…..with painful eyes he asked,
‘Dad when
will my fingers grow back?’ The man was so hurt and speechless;
he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.

Devastated by his own actions…….sitting in front of that car he
looked at the scratches; the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.

The next day that man committed suicide. . .
Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful,
lovely life…..

Things are to be used and people are to be loved,
But the problem in today’s world is that, People are used and things are

During this year, let’s be careful to keep this
thought in mind: Things are to be used, but People are to be
loved … Be yourself….This is the only day we HAVE.

Have a nice day and Best regards

At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down

  FINALLY, the guys' side of the story. ( I must admit, it's pretty good.)
We always hear “THE RULES” From the female side.  Now here are the rules from the male side.
These are our rules! Please note... These are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!
1.   Men are NOT mind readers.
1. Shopping is NOT a sport.
And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one:
Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do.
Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a Problem.  See a doctor.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument.
In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 Days.

1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't Expect us to act like soap opera guys.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the   other one

1. You can either ask us to do something Or tell us how you want it done. Not both.
If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.
Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

  1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong.
We know you are lying, but it is just not wor th the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really .

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation,
or golf.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape.   Round IS a shape!

1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;

But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.

t may sound exaggerated, but in almost half of all relationships, cheating is a major problem. A large number of relationships are breaking down because of dishonesty on the part of one of the partners. I have for you an easy way to catch your significant other if he or she is really cheating. 

This isn't all tat hard and you will come to a definite conclusion in less than a couple of hours. Let's look at it in three steps.

Step 1)

It might sound difficult, but this is something you have to do. Try and steal away your partner's mobile phone for a few moments when he/she is not noticing. You will need it for around ten minutes, but make sure you are not caught in the process. 

Good times when you can do this are when your partner is in the shower, or out on a quick errand without the phone, or when they are asleep. Choosing the opportune moment is entirely up to you.

Step 2)

We assume you have their phone by this point. Go to the call log list. Check all incoming and outgoing calls.

Quickly take a pen and paper and jot down every number you get on these lists. This step should not take more that 10 minutes. Now that you have jotted down all the numbers the phone is no longer important for you. So put it down where you picked it up from!

Step 3)

This is the last hurdle to finding out whether your partner has been cheating on you or not. 

Now, you shall have to gather the details about each phone number that you have jotted down from his/her call lists. This will enable you to trace all those people who have either contacted or been contacted by your partner. 

You can use a reverse phone lookup to find out who the owner of these numbers are. This is vital to catching a cheater.

This mechanism lets you find out complete information about the owner of a certain phone number. Not only do you get the person's name and address, but also background information.

You have to use the services of a reverse phone lookup service to do this. They will charge you, but it won't be costly. The best bet is to settle for a company that has a one time membership fee and allows unlimited lookups. You have to pay just once and you can ruin lookups on every number you had written down earlier.

It's now time to run a reverse lookup on every phone number you had noted. Watch out for any suspicious names or calls. Chances are, anything out of the way will stand out prominently.

This is all that you have got to do in order to find out whether your partner is cheating on you or not Tongue out. Everyone has a right to know how they are being treated. And this makes it perfectly justified to spy a little on your partner. Even if you don't find anything suspicious, don't feel bad about it. The fact is that you love your self-respect just the way you love your partner. And you are doing all this to save your self respect (in case there is a threat to it, that is).

Yeah i knw it,even i hate to doubt the person whom i love the most. I posted this blog in pressure. Im sorry to all the couple who love their partner a lot. Forgive me.

it's a terrible suggestion.

08:02 PM Nov 27 2009



If you didn't have the most basic trust on your friends, are there any meanings for you to known whether he/she is cheating on you.
