The Never Ending Call
The boy walked along the ocean shore... trying not to stray.
He looked up to his Father saying "Dad I want to play."
His Father looked upon him, with love showing in his eyes.
"Do what you want to, my son... but do not leave my side."
"I would never leave you daddy, I love you way too much."
But the boy took a step away, out of his fathers range of touch.
He walked through the surf, The waves tickling one toe.
"If I take one more step in... " he thought "Father will never know."
His father called out to him, "Son, to me remain true."
The boy thought with glee... "At the moment I don't need you."
His Father felt a sadness, But he held his tongue.
Sometimes lessons need to be learned... even when so young.
The boy stepped out a little further... the water covering his waist.
His Father spoke with urgency... his father spoke with haste.
"My Son come Back to me," he said "The day is almost done."
Not yet, Dad," the boy yelled, "I'm having too much fun!"
But the Boy did not have his fathers sight... So he could not tell...
The Tide was coming in fast... There would be no time to yell.
"Father!" he tried to scream As the water covered his head.
"I need you now daddy!" was what the boy had said.
And in a single instant his father was by his side.
"I thought you left me daddy... I thought you went to hide."
The Father looked upon his son... a tear streaming down his cheek.
The Boy looked upon his father. and cried the sobs of the meek.
"I would never leave you son... For I love you just the same.
I was only waiting... for you to call upon my name."
"Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.

Q: Why should the wedding ring be worn in the fourth finger?
A: A beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese...
Thumb represents your Parents
Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings
Middle finger represents Yourself
Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner and the
Last (Little) finger represents your Children.

In Aquino's honor, the Manila International Airport where he was assassinated was renamed Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and his image is printed on the 500-peso bill. The Philippine Congress enacted Republic Act (R.A.) 9256, declaring August 21, the anniversary of his death, as Ninoy Aquino Day, an annual public holiday in the Philippines. Several monuments were built in his honor. Most renowned is the bronze memorial in Makati City near the Philippine Stock Exchange, which today is a venue of endless anti-government rallies and demonstrations.

Trivia for Phelps (as googled by Michael):
He got lucrative endorsements: Nasdaq, PowerBar, Visa, Omega, and
AT&T Wireless, and Speedo to name but a few.
Phelps touched the wall 0.01 second ahead of Serbian Milorad Cavic.
It's the smallest margin of victory in swimming!

Poems on Time
The butterfly counts not months but moments,
and has time enough.
Time is a wealth of change,
but the clock in its parody makes it mere change and no wealth.
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time
like dew on the tip of a leaf.
Double checking for the approved IRR on the Tax Relief Law from the Office website. Last Friday we checked the district office e-mail at the close of the office hours, but we did not find the approved IRR. Today's update concerns registration. For my part, I consider it best to conduct the Tax Update armed with the approved IRR. But time and again, may we remind our WAs and TPs to familiarize themselves with the proposed IRR (and apprise the employees on the new requirements) so we could facilitate the discussion of the 33pp. IRR (at least) once it gets approved.
