Andy Griffith 安迪·格里范

Andy Samuel Griffith (Jun. 1, 1926-Jul. 3, 2012)
As a young man, Andy Griffith studied for the ministry, then got a degree in music and taught high school for several years. During this time he worked up a comedy routine including his famous bit "What It Was, Was Football", about a country boy's misunderstandings as he watched his first football game. (More)

In My Daughter's Eyes 女兒眼中

Martina Won sings In My Daughter's Eyes

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daugter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

Geese Visit 加鵝來訪

A group of Canadian geese visit Sirtea Garden.

最近常可看到加拿大單隻或小群的大鵝在園中取食且很怕生, 一靠近就飛走。這次來了三十多隻, 還讓我可以順利拍照。 最後還是被高速公路的行車嚇飛, 讓我有點失望可惜。

Almost Real 似真實假

Taking picture with statues,
True yet plausible fake;
Photographer's masterpieces,
Almost Real;
Very Good Artworks,
I like it.

The Roses Will Bloom 愛似玫瑰

The Rose by LeAnn Rimes, performed by Bette Midler.

Lyrics 歌詞
Some say love it is a river (有人說﹕愛像一條小河)
that drowns the tender reed (往往淹沒了那些輕柔的蘆葦)
Some say love it is a razor (也有人說﹕愛像刀片)
that leaves your soul to bleed (會讓你的靈魂淌血)
Some say love it is a hunger (有人說﹕愛是一種饑渴)
an endless aching need (對它的需求是不會停止的)
I say love it is a flower (但我認為﹕愛就像朵花兒)
and you it's only seed (而你卻是它唯一的種子)
It's the heart afraid of breaking (一個怕跌碎的心)
that never learns to dance (永遠學不會跳躍)
It's the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken (如果我們不願意被擁有)
who cannot seem to give (那我們就永遠不懂得什麼是給予)
and the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live
When the night has been too lonely (寂寞寒夜)
and the road has been too long (漫漫長路)
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong (才能得到愛的眷顧)
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed (埋的是一顆小種子)
that with the sun's love (只要有陽光的憐愛)
in the spring (春天來的時候)
becomes the rose (會變成玫瑰)

Love Song 情歌


命運好幽默 讓愛的人都沉默
一整個宇宙 換一顆紅豆
回憶如困獸 寂寞太久而漸漸溫柔
放開了拳頭 反而更自由

My New Favorite 我的新寵

My friend Bill forwarded the following poem in en & zh. I like it. Thumb up.
網友傳來一首漢英詩。原作者不詳, 寫得不但傳神而且太妙極了, 特地推薦分享。

花甲老翁得新寵 Old Man Got a New Love
千嬌百媚俏愛鳳 Lovely as a Beauty Can Be
生活起居有了她 Living with Her in His Life
憑添情調趣無窮 He is Having Fun without End

打扮時尚迎潮流 Dress Up as Modern as She Would
溫柔體貼性順從 Tender Consider She Can Be
家居外出伴著我 Keeping Him Company in & out
四季如春無嚴冬 Making Four Seasons Feel Like Spring

學識淵博深若海 Knowledge's Deep & Broad as Sea
記憶如神超時空 Memories Swift in Time & Space
疑問雜題難不倒 No Question is Too Difficult
愛因斯坦拜下風 Einstein Would Consider Her Good

樂壇名曲知曉多 Knowing All Pops & Hit Songs
黃鶯出谷甜喉嚨 Voices Sweet as a Canary
側臥枕邊輕輕哼 Lying, Humming next to his pillow
天籟美聲伴酣夢 Bringing Him to Sleep with Sweet Dreams

天生一幅活地圖 Borne with Maps in Her Hands
大小路況握手中 Knowing All Big & Small Roads
有她導航我放心 She Make Him Felt Relaxed
出門駕車真輕鬆 Driving Always with No Tension

文武全材樣樣行 All Things She Can Do
各類游戲皆精通 All Games She Can Play
棋逢敵手弈一局 A Chess Champion She Is
修身養性腦運動 Help Him Exercise His Minds

日理千機大小事 All Things Are Organized Daily
有她只需幾分鐘 Only Need Her a Few Minutes
如此幫手何處覓 How Can He Find Such An Assistant
遠比秘書還管用 Far Better Than A Secretary
日常生活不能離 No Daily Life Should be Without Her
心存感激常歌頌 Appreciation is Always in His Heart
友人笑問她是誰 Friends Ask Who is She

※2011年聖誕節孩子送我倆各一隻愛鳯(我叫她愛奉), 電子時代科技驚人, 都快跟不上了。愛奉全神隨侍在側, 可比與我的另一半還要黏蜜噢。還好, 我已經查覺, 我知收斂適可而止。

Lake Jet Skiing 氣艇滑水

Father & son lake jet skiing

Seeing this video scene, I think of when Jesus walked on water and Peter too.
Jesus said: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
He said:“You of little faith, why did you doubt?” (Matthew 14:22-33)
Thank you Lord for remind me to trust You always.

The world's most remote hotels 世界最偏僻飯店

玉屏樓酒店 中國安徽玉屏峰
坐標:北緯30° 0' 59.364",東經118° 1' 1.128"
海拔:5,249英尺 平均高溫:二月2.8℃,九月17.2℃ 人口密度:388/平方英里 (黃山市)

奧巴裡魔法旅館利比亞 瓦迪哈亞特
坐標:北緯26° 33' 14.3994",東經12° 47' 56.399"
海拔:1,545英尺 平均高溫:二月20.6℃,九月37.8℃ 人口密度:6/平方英里 (瓦迪哈雅特區)

北極酒店格陵蘭 伊盧利薩特
坐標:北緯69° 14' ,西經51° 04' 平均高溫:二月﹣10攝氏度,九月﹣5攝氏度 人口密度:14/平方英里
在格陵蘭語中,「伊盧利薩特」即是「冰川」的意思。伊盧利薩特是一個人口約4500人的港口地區。夏天時總是充斥著魚的氣味和雪橇犬的吠聲。不過,若是呆在北極酒店那五間圓頂小屋裡,你就會感覺像是處於另一片天地中。小屋是鋁制的框架,帶有舷窗,溫暖舒適。不過這些圓頂小屋只會在5至9月間開放。在5月19日入住的遊客若是在凌晨1:38望向迪斯科灣(Disko Bay)的冰川,就可以看到準時升起的太陽。而這升起的太陽在6月25日之前都不會落山,這是否顛覆了你的時間觀呢?點上一杯加了冰塊的雞尾酒,在那靜美的景色下啜飲,杯中的冰塊和眼前的冰川甚是相得益彰。

坐標:南緯20° 27' 3.6",東經57° 19' 26.3994" 平均高溫:二月30℃,九月26℃ 人口密度:489/平方英里 (黑河區)
莫納布拉班特山上的朱槿種類:26種 (世界上已知的有36種)
酒店有172間套房,蜿蜒分佈在莫爾納島的頂端。從任何一間套房裡都可以欣賞到金黃迷人的沙灘和印度洋中的環礁湖。不遠處屹立著的莫納布拉班特山(le Morne Brabant)見證過奴隸們的反抗與犧牲:在18至19世紀,許多從奴隸主手中逃離出來的奴隸就藏身在山洞中或是山頂上;在被發現的時候,大部分人都選擇跳崖結束自己的生命,而不願繼續被奴役的日子。莫納布拉班特山還是世界上僅有的幾個朱槿灌木群之一,也是毛里求斯國花—紅心花的棲息地。如果遊客想要遊覽的話,最好有導遊陪同,免得自己錯過了這樣獨特的景觀,也不至於會無意對這些珍稀物種造成傷害。

比薩斜塔賓館 意大利 費耶美山谷 卡維尼翁峰
坐標:北緯46° 18' 39.312",東經11° 36' 10.404" 平均高溫:二月﹣0.6℃,九月11℃ 人口密度:105/平方英里 (普雷達佐 特倫托自治省)
