Happy Easter! Março 24, 2008

Filed under: Greetings,video — looking4good @ 9:50 pm

In Polish language the word “mazurka” has two different meanings. One is a traditional cake baked and served each year for easter in most Polish homes, another one is that largely recognized all around the world as a kind of classical music gender. Here, as I can’t treat you with the cake, you have to stay with that mazurkas od Frederic Chopin. Happy Easter from Poland.

Dreams

Filed under: Inspirational,Life — looking4good @ 9:35 pm


Dreams have a reality all their own. To the person who indulges in its escapist world, it is as real as you and me. Do you remember the time when as a kid, we used to have our own imaginary friends? Or how about the castles in the air we escaped to when things were bleak in our real world?

I remember when I was a child and I dreamed of my own world of make believe. My favorite spot was our window upstairs. I would pretend that it was an airplane and I was a pilot that flew it wherever I wanted it to go. I would simulate so many dogfights and bomb runs on the territories of the enemy.

Sometimes, I would pick up cottons from inside our dilapidated living room sofa and blew them outside our window. Then I would pretend that they formed into the big shapely clouds that adorned our skies.

Even when I was already a young teen, I would still indulge in my make believe world. It was a world of idyllic beauty, with a breath taking lake and a garden full of gorgeous flowers and luscious fruit bearing trees. Oh, I was always lost in the enchanting beauty and grandeur of that escapist world with the lady of my dreams. Food was no problem for us for the lake was full of fishes jumping in the air. And we have our own menagerie of farm animals to provide us meat. We planted our own colorful vegetables in our garden patch.

The girl of my dreams was so beautiful, perfect in every way. I made so many poems and love letters to her. But alas, all dreams have their endings. I was brought back to the harsh realities of life. I have to go on with my schooling and later on, with my work. But my enchanted world was so good and real while it lasted.

O planeamento fiscal entre namorados…

Filed under: Actualidade,impostos — looking4good @ 8:35 pm
Ela: – Querido, então quando marcamos o nosso casamento?

Ele: – Oh bébé! Agora não é oportuno. Já viste ter de responder aquelas perguntas todas do fisco? Onde foi (vai ser) a boda, quanto pagámos, quantas pessoas foram, quem foi o fotógrafo, se a cerimónia foi filmada em DVD. Quanto custaram as alianças, onde compraste o vestido de noiva? …

Ela: – Pois … mas tu não sabes isso tudo?

Ele: – Eu não… então não vão ser os teus padrinhos que vão dar as alianças? E o teu pai é que disse que ia escolher o restaurante.

Ela: – Sim ele vai falar com a Ti Luisa, mas o pagamento vai ser a meias com os teus pais….

Ele: Pois sim … mas acho que é melhor aguardar que o fisco alivie a pressão. Talvez para o final do próximo ano… como vai haver eleições. E aliás eles até ameaçam com multas para quem não responder. Já viste ter de contratar um advogado para responder às perguntas sobre o nosso casamento? Até querem saber a ementa! …

Ela: – Pois.. mas olha, as despesas do advogado não descontam no IRS?

Ele: Sim, isso descontam … mas olha que provavelmente como as coisas estão a evoluir até vão querer saber onde foi a despedida de solteiro, a identificação das strippers…

Ela: O que estás para aí a dizer? Strippers? O que é isso?

Ele: Pois, olha esquece .. mas acho que o melhor é adiar o casamento por uns tempos…

Ela: Até quando as despesas com o banquete forem dedutíveis entre 20% e 50% no IRS? Hoje ouvi um especialista a propor isso…

Ele: Vês filha, nessa altura é que vai ser bom…

 

As minhocas e o sexo

Filed under: Humor,news — looking4good @ 8:15 pm
«Uma espécie de minhoca de 30 cm de comprimento, que vivia no fundo do mar há 565 milhões de anos, pode ter sido o primeiro ser vivo a praticar sexo, refere esta semana na revista, Science, Mary Droser, palenteóloga da Universidade de Riverside, EUA» in Meia-Hora, de 24 de Março de 2008.

Espécie de minhoca de 30 cm? Não é uma conclusão excessiva?

 

Selecção sem Cristiano Ronaldo e sem Nani para o jogo com a Grécia

Filed under: football,Futebol,selecção de Portugal — looking4good @ 7:53 pm

Pois, pois, todos vimos ontem estes jogadores em sub-rendimento lesionados no jogo com o Liverpool. Até só marcaram um golo cada um… e então não viram como aquela pirueta do Nani, a festejar o terceiro golo, foi deficiente (por causa da contractura na coxa)?

Já perceberam porque é que a selecção é diferente do Manchester United?

A propósito quando vai ser o próximo jogo do comandante da Liga inglesa?

 

Alekhine died in Portugal 62 years ago

Alekhine’s Defense

1.e4 Nf6


«The Alekhine defence has a provocative strategy of tempting the White pawns forward, and as we all know pawns cannot go backwards! Black hopes to be able to exploit the weaknesses and vacuum that White creates by advancing her pawns. White has to prove that the extra space is advantageous and often demonstrates this by easier manoevering of forces for example for king attacking, and a space advantage which can be nurtured and carried to the endgame. Black often demonstrates the effectiveness of the provocation strategy by winning material tactically based on the weak squares and pawns that White has been tempted into creating».
