Child's Symphony of a Fantasy Garden

Dr Abe V Rotor 
 Mackie on her first birthday

A garden of the finest art on stage
of fairy tale and  fragments of a garden lost,
where nature to fantasy land transposed.
How short, how far nature lies!
From here the task begins to know
that roses have thorns.

Dear Dr. Rotor; I suspect that anacardic acids would kill Streptococcus and Staphylococcus bacteria. I have found that the anacardic acids in raw cashew nuts and maybe mangoes do an excellent job of curing an abscess from gram positive bacteria, which are the most prevalent cause of tooth decay and tooth aches You may see my article on this subject at; http://charles_w.tripod.com/tooth.html . It is also discussed briefly in the 2005 edition of Medical Hypotheses, 65; 289-292. Wikipedia discusses anacardic acids in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anacardic_acid . I would like to urge you to explore making these medicines available in the pure form from pharmacies for a Streptococcus medicine or in tooth paste. This would have several advantages; 1. a variety of application methods would be possible, needles, brushes, swabs, sprays, and etc. 2. It would probably on Glycerol Monolaurate (GML) in Virgin Coconut Oil destroys tuberculosis bacteria

With the diversity that comprises our heritage, many often wonder what our real identity is. But isn’t it more fun to think that aside from the blood of our ancestors, we also are mixed with the legacy of the Spanish, the strategic minds of the Americans, the-rich culture of the Chinese and even the technology and creativity of the Japanese? What matters most is that we, as Filipinos, have hearts which could not be matched by any race—and that is something that will always be ours, originally. -Khristiana Jacinto, AB Communication Arts on Significant Influences of Foreign Countries on the Philippines

Philippine literature makes us better appreciate our heritage. Through the study of our literature, we can trace the rich heritage of ideas handed down to us from our forefathers. Then we can understand ourselves better and take pride in being a Filipino. -Khristiana Jacinto, AB Communication Arts on Twelve Reasons I Love Philippine Literature

We Filipinos are really superstitious in nature. I'd like to assume three reasons as to why we act in such way. I believe many of our superstitious beliefs hark back to the pagan beliefs before Roman Catholicism was introduced by the Spanish conquistadors half a millennium ago. It was during that time when we believed in almost anything. We assumed that when a particular thing happens, it is a sign or a warning even if it was only coincidence. Maybe it was also the influence of the ethnic Chinese starting with our immigrant ancestors who traditionally practiced so many colorful, superstitious beliefs. Many Chinese beliefs are harmless and delightful. For example, if a parent of a boyfriend or girlfriend dies, the couple has to rush marriage within 100 days or wait two years after to do so. Perhaps another reason could be the ruling political and social elite of the Philippines (whether Spanish or the local datus and later the ilustrados) invented and spread all sorts of on A Portfolio of Superstitious beliefs (Part 3) Don’t give your loved one a necklace; otherwise your relationship will not last.

Hi Dok, There's a story of genuine strad in Vigan. I met his parents but unlucky i haven't seen him alive during my visit, he was encarcerated for thirty years at his home cage due to insanity. He became insane after the Strad was taken due to a robbery that poked his back head that left him unaware for about 2 hours. He was a former PPO Orchestra player, his violin was borrowed by Foreign soloist and then he was offered money for the selling of Strad violin. He refused to sell it, that's a sad story that is still a warning to all! :) Josef Suson from Cavite on The Violin - the Soulful Musical Instrument

this is really a great poem ! Yes where have all thos wonderful fruittrees gone? The farmers chopped them all - for the empty promises of the politics, by their pressures to their folks and tribes... in order to raise the hot spices, coffee and tea and animal farm growing all around the world - for the really poorest people in this world - the rhich! Their hearts are so poor, so they do not see, what they created - may the time come and show them, when there will be nothing to eat but money and denaturated deadly factory food. You may say I am a dreamer ... but I am not the only one! May our love be strong enough to lift this planet up again to it's natural state - and to help people come back to the center of their hearts, where trust in our divine creation, true love and compassion for all beings lead the humans to a vegan lifestyle - and the world will be as one ! on Where have all the native fruits gone?

Now and then anyone may fall into a pit of hiccup for reasons not well understood even in the medical field. But as sudden and unpredictable it came, just by jolting the person is enough to terminate hiccup. I only see this on tv i thought this is not true.

Just like in the picture where these kids play without hesitation. The beauty of nature can be compared to an old woman. When she was young she was loved by all. Taken care by the ones she loves. But through the years of endless battles through the fast changing world our woman aged up and now is suffering through loneliness and sickness. Only few people are taking care of her, only few are playing with her. Is it because she's not young enough and beautiful just like before? What happened to the people who loves her? Where are they now? Where are we now for our mother nature? Where the children who will play alongside her and enjoy her beauty.

I hope there are still kids out there and parents too who still give their kids time to explore outside and learn what it is to live on our world AINA DAWANG on Scenarios of our children living in a Postmodern World

As to what Albert Schweitzer said about happiness. "Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success . if you love what you are doing, you will be successful." I begin to fully grasp what happiness is. Nowadays, people especially in my generation wants to be happy. If you ask them want they want they'll answer "I want to be happy". We try to search for it, ask for it or even try to have it but we don't succeed. Maybe because we don't know how. We don't know what happiness really is or we don't get contented anymore. We expect high of ourselves to the point that we cannot even attain it. We live in a society wherein people work their butts off just to be successful because they think that in order to be happy you must attain success well in fact happiness is just around the corner. Learn to be contented of what we have and try to learn and find what we truly love to do. Then success will come in, along with happiness. Before i thought that in order to be happy on

This post is very timely for children nowadays tend to lock themselves with their own social sites. This is a great way to remind them of what they really are in essence. on Scenarios of our children living in a Postmodern World

Let us now praise not so famous men, the unsung wet heroes of this week’s torrential flooding. We refer to the rescue teams and hospital workers who logged long hours and went beyond the call of duty to come to the aid of those trapped in the worst flooding since “Ondoy.” We especially refer to the ordinary citizens who set aside their own comforts and even their own safety in order to come to the help of others. on Flood Heroes

Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important to both the natural environment and us. We must act fast as the amount of waste we create is increasing all the time. Recycling is very important as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment. Recycling is essential to cities around the world and to the people living in them. on Recycle plastic for good reasons

Dear Jacky, Receiving such an inspiring comment makes me feel more of the need to write, to paint and to compose, above all, to share - but how little is time left in my golden years. I begin to realize though, of the meaning of life's last bend with the setting sun - golden before it sleeps on the horizon of rest and peace. Be then my disciple, I request, and touch more lives, with this blog, a little companion. AVR on Environment: Global trends that are changing the way we live

I'm with you all the way. We should not be taking animals and killing them so we can sell their shells to tourists as souvenirs. It is very sad. No different than killing animals to make fur coats. I volunteer at the Monterey Bay Aquarium where we have lots of beautiful live animals, and the shops right across the street sell shells and dead sea stars (starfish) that don't even come from this area; I think that many come from the Phillipines. on Endangered Seashells
