Lead Me Lord Lyrics

It's hard to take the first step
When I don't know the way.
Each turn is so uncertain,
I learn to walk by faith.
But you gave me a promise
That you would never leave.
You will lead and guide me,
Lord, I do believe.

Lead me Lord, I will follow
Lead me Lord, I will go
You have called me, I will answer
Lead me Lord, I will go.

Your plans for me are perfect
I never need to fear.
Even though at times I feel alone,
I know that you are near.
My heart just wants to follow,
I'm willing to obey.
Take my hand and lead me,
I'll follow all the way.

Pray 祈福

An internet chain letter prayer 一封網路連鎖信祈禱文
Let's pray. 一起禱告。

Heavenly Father,

Most Gracious and Loving God, I pray to you that you abundantly bless my family, friends and me. I know that you recognize, that a family is more than just a mother, father, sister, brother, husband and wife, but all who believe and trust in you.

Father, I send up a prayer request for blessings for not only the person who sent this to me, but for me and all that I have forwarded this message to. And that the power of joined prayer by those who believe and trust in you is more powerful than anything. I thank you in advance for your blessings.

Father God, deliver the person reading this right now from debt and debt's burdens. Release Your Godly wisdom that I may be a good steward over all that You have given me. Father, for I know how wonderful and mighty You are and how if we just obey You and walk in Your word and have the faith of a mustard seed that You will pour out blessings.

I thank You now Lord for the recent blessings I have received and for the blessings yet to come because I know You are not done with me yet.

In Jesus' name, I pray.

Military Planes And Ships 軍機和船艦

The 3 carriers and the new fighter jet

The plane in these pictures is still officially the 'Air Vehicle Number 1', a prototype, on board the USS George Washington CVN-73 for catapult fit checks. Not exactly still Top Secret but certainly not yet made public.

It’s known as the F/A-37. Although specs are classified, it is believed to be Mach 3.5 (top speed in the Mach 4 range) super-cruise stealth fighter/bomber/interceptor with approximately a 4,000nm range.

Check out the Navy test pilot in the cockpit of the F/A-37 LT. Kara Wade.

For the first time in over 20 some odd years, three carrier strike groups ABRAHAM LINCOLN, KITTY HAWK and RONALD REAGAN got together in formation for a great photo op.

See the Air Force planes fly-over, B-2 Stealth Bomber. The only warships not seen in the photos are the 4 nuclear powered submarines standing guard.

USS New York

It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center, notice the two twin towers on top.

It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.

Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite, LA to cast the ship's
bow section. It was poured into the molds on Sept 9, 2003, “those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence.” recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there.

Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the hair on his neck stood up. “It had a big meaning to it for all of us”, he said. “They knocked us down. They can't keep us down. We’re going to be back.” It was a spiritual moment for everybody there.

The ship's motto?
"Never Forget"

Guam And Taiwan 關島與台灣

Guam mulls going its own way

Governor Edward Calvo successfully campaigned on the issue in a January election and pursued it in his State of the Island address in March.

Calvo has said he wants to hold a plebiscite on self-determination in 2012 but that need not mean cutting ties with Washington. Voters would be able to express their preference for one of three options -- US statehood, independence or "free association" with Washington.

Free association, a status accorded to neighbouring Pacific states the Marshall Islands, Palau and Micronesia, would give Guam recognition as a sovereign nation but it would retain close ties with the United States.

關島獨立或併入美國 明年公投

美國在西太平洋的軍事重鎮關島(Guam),明年將舉行攸關其主權的民族自決公投。屆時島上十八萬住民將有有三個選項:申請成為美國第五十一州、獨立建國,或與美國締結「自由結合」(free association)。

關島於一九四四年被美軍從日軍佔領中解放,成為美國的無建制領地(Unincorporated Territory),也是全球迄今僅存十六個非自治領土(即殖民地)之一。居民擁有美國公民權,但不能投票選舉總統與國會議員。

(源自 2011-06-13 中國時報)

※Why the government of Republic of China (Taiwan) doesn't let "the inhabitants of Taiwan and Penghu" plebiscite to determine Taiwan's future?
※美國不反對關島居民公投自決。 爲什麼中華人民共和國和中華民國不讓台灣住民公投決定台灣的前途-獨立, 併入中國, 或者 ... 呢?

Chiang Kai-Shek's Four Wills 蔣介石的四份遺囑


蔣總統發病因起始於1971年陽明山的一場車禍,後來又並發了心力衰竭等多種疾病。進入1975年春天,他念念不忘的一件事,就是要求從前的機要秘書秦孝儀來士林官邸為他整理遺囑。 1975年3月29日上午,由蔣總統口授,秦孝儀執筆記錄了一份《遺囑》的草稿,這也就是後來公佈的《遺囑》:

中華民國六十四年三月二十九日 』



中華民國二十五年十二月十九日 』

Take A Peep 偷偷地看

This morning I was able to take 3 videos: 1st. a baby rabbit, 2nd. a love couple, 3rd. a family- mother and 13 ducklings.

今早真巧拍攝到三段影片: 1. 一隻小灰兔, 2. 一對親熱水鴨, 3. 一隻母鴨帶13隻小鴨出遊。

I first saw this baby rabbit 3 days ago. It, I didn't know its gender, allowed me to get close to within 6 feet. Finally, it was scared off by a laud water sound.

2 ducks made love in the lake. You could hear the female duck crying.

I posted "Bedtime" yesterday. This morning I saw this mother with 13 youngsters set out to the lake.

Termite Inspection 白蟻檢驗

(舊識新知) 讓台灣出名的白蟻
(FYI Source: Wikipedia)
The Formosan subterranean termite acquired its name because it was first described in Taiwan in the early 20th century, but C. formosanus is probably endemic to southern China. This destructive species was apparently transported to Japan prior to the 17th century and to Hawaii in the late 19th century (Su and Tamashiro 1987). By the 1950s, it was reported in South Africa and Sri Lanka. During the 1960s, it was found in Texas, Louisiana, and South Carolina. In 1980,
The Formosan subterranean termite is often nicknamed the super-termite because of its destructive habits. This is because of the large size of its colonies, and the termites' ability to consume wood at a rapid rate.

One Chinese Army 一個中國軍隊

Is Taiwan KMT Army a division of The People’s Liberation Army (China)?!

Media on both sides of the strait have reported that in a function several days ago Brigadier General Luo Yuan of the People’s Liberation Army quoted a high-ranking retired officer from Taiwan as saying, “From now on there is no distinction between the KMT Army and the Communist Army, it is all one Chinese Army”, a remark that triggered an uproar when it was filtered back to Taiwan.

Sun Yat-Sen & Ma Ying-jeou 孫逸仙與馬英九

Dr. Sun Yat-Sen had two birth places.



這推翻了兩岸一般史料的孫中山出生於廣東省香山縣(今中山縣)翠亨村的說法。(參考資料: BBC中文網 2011年6月6日美歷史檔案)

孫中山先生出生何處是不爭之笑談;但是, 中華民國和對岸中華人民共和國都在編撰騙人的歷史資料故事是存在的事實。

馬英九先生至今尚未公佈美國移民局已經註銷的綠卡証明。既然國父是美籍, 總統擁有綠卡或歸化美國籍又有何羞於讓人知的! (請參考: Pres. Ma's Green Card 馬英九綠卡) 而「一中各表」是馬英九和中國國民黨騙台灣國人的, 馬先生早就把台灣變成中國的一省了。

Chang Yu's Five Nudes 常玉油畫「五裸女」

Sanyu’s largest nude “Five Nudes” takes the stage in Ravenel Spring Auction 2011 Hong Kong.

Sanyu (Chang Yu) (Chinese-French, 1901-1966)
Title: Five Nudes
Painted in 1950s Oil on masonite
Size: 120 x 175 cm
Signed lower right Yu in Chinese and Sanyu in French
Sold: HKD 128,320,000=TWD475,259,259=USD16,493,573


據新浪網報導:5月30日,羅芙奧(香港)舉行了“現代與當代藝術”專場拍賣。在下午的拍賣中,來自常玉的《五裸女》不負眾望,以1.28億港幣(1.07億人民幣)的價格創造了華人油畫價格新紀錄,打破了不久前嘉德拍賣中陳逸飛《山地風》 8165萬人民幣的中國油畫拍場價格紀錄,成為最高價的一幅華人油畫。


《五裸女》是常玉畢生中最大幅裸女主題油畫,曾在1988年台北市立美術館“中國- 巴黎:早期旅法中國畫家回顧展”中首度曝光,也是陳炎峰編著的《華裔美術選集我,常玉》畫冊封面與封底作品。歷年拍場上常玉作品較多是花卉題材,少有其裸女油畫主題的拍賣。目前已知的常玉裸女油畫不過五十一幅,且多數採臥姿,站姿華麗的“五裸女”極為稀有,這樣一件作品打破記錄也在眾多行家的意料之中。 (來源:新浪網)
