Dandelions 蒲公英

This dandelion plant has 17 flowers and buds on the surface. There are some more baby buds under leaves. Its reproductive power is so strong, this field is full of blooming dandelions.

我算了一下這棵蒲公英表面就有17朵花和花蕾。葉叢下還有更多的小花蕾。好強的繁殖能力, 難怪這個草地有那麼多開花的蒲公英。

Trojan Email 含毒信件

Be very careful open forward email.
I received this email from a trusted friend this morning. Unfortunately, it contained a trojan threat: "This program is dangerous and downloads other programs."
I followed the instruction and it was cleaned out sucessfully.
Just to be sure, I also deleted browsing temporary file and history.

今早收到一封至交轉寄來的e信。很可惜, 其附件中隱藏着木馬程式。
只好照着指示將它消滅掉。爲了安心, 也將網路瀏覽臨時檔案和歷史清除去。

Toyota Sienna 豐田思野娜

This morning, I took my Sienna Minivan to the Toyota dealership for maintenence. The technician replaced engine oil/oil filter, inspected brake/pad/disc, rotated tires, and other scheduled check. I asked the service manager about recall. He told me Sienna is good, not on the recall lists. I hope so.

Let Go 放手

"The Kingdom of God is the vast inner space in which nothing except God lives. As soon as I enter that space, I disappear. Throw in your sorrow, hurt, anger, fear ... anything, it just disappears." - P.H. -
上帝的國度是廣闊的內在空間, 空無一物僅祗神住在其中。當自我進入其空間, 自我就消失了。拋擲入你的憂愁、創傷、噴怒、恐懼 ... 等任何大小事, 它即刻消失於其間。」-博-

"Leave all your worries with Him, because he cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)
「要把一切的憂慮卸給祂, 因為祂關心你們。」(彼得前書5章7節)

Let go and let God. Do our part and God will take care of the rest. Trust God.
放手讓神接手。盡力作完我們所能作的, 其他的神會處理。交託給神。
