Gardening is good for health

London, March 20 (IANS) Tending your garden can make you feel younger and happier, say experts.

Gardeners are also more likely to be organised and optimistic than non-gardeners, they said.

A regular spot of gardening gives the over-50s more of a “zest for life” than those who don’t have have an inclination for it, express.co.uk reported citing researchers.

Researchers from two universities in Texas analysed about 300 people over 50, dividing them into gardeners and non- gardeners.

They found that 71 percent of gardeners said they did not “feel old” compared with 57 percent of non-gardeners.

The gardeners also felt more energetic, got more exercise and were shown to be more mentally active.

There were also higher scores for “life satisfaction” among gardeners while they were also more likely to eat fresh fruit and vegetables.

That’s why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them, and they needed you.

From Finale of LOST :-

Jack Shephard: Are you real?
Christian Shephard: I sure hope so. Yeah, I’m real. You’re real. Everything that’s happened to you is real. All those people in the church, they’re all real too.
Jack Shephard: No. They’re all… They’re all dead.
Christian Shephard: Everyone dies sometime, kiddo. Some of them before you, some… long after you.
Jack Shephard: But why are they all here now?
Christian Shephard: Well, there is no “now”, here.
Jack Shephard: Where are we, Dad?
Christian Shephard: This is a place that you… that you all made together so that you could fine one another. The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people. That’s why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them, and they needed you.
Jack Shephard: For what?
Christian Shephard: To remember. And to… let go.
Jack Shephard: Kate… She said we were leaving.
Christian Shephard: Not leaving. No. Moving on.
Jack Shephard: Where are we going?
Christian Shephard: Let’s go find out.

What to do when you are bored …

  1. Kill a few flies. ( PLEASE… as humanely as possible, or use already dead files instead)
  2. Put them in the sun to dry for one hour.
  3. Once they are dry, pick a pencil and paper… Let your imagination flow.

Here are a few examples…

With Compliments …

Some nice people don’t fail to compliment others… I have got a fair share of good family & friends and so have got more than a fair share of good complements for who I’m. Thought I must document them, whenever they happen , not as an ode to me but as a gesture of thanks to them …

“Somethings u can never forget in life, u r 1 of those…. :)”

I love burned toast …

Out of many forward emails that we get everyday, a few are really worth reading and forwarding … This is definitely one such email …

Story By a Girl

When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and ask me how my day was at school. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite! When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said. ‘Baby, I love burned toast.’

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night, and I asked him if he really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, ‘Debbie, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides-a little burnt toast never hurt anyone! You know, life is full of imperfect things…and imperfect people. I’m not the best housekeeper or cook.’

What I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each other’s faults – and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences – is the one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship. Burnt toast should never be a deal breaker. We could extend this to any relationship in fact – as understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!!”

Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket – but into your own.

People will always forget what you do, and they will always forget what you say, but they will never, ever forget the way you make them feel
