Welcome to "The 99 Club"!

This came through the email:

Once upon a time.......there lived a King who.....despite his luxurious lifestyle... ..was neither happy nor content.

One day, the King came upon a servant who was singing happily while he worked. This fascinated the King; why was he......the Supreme Ruler of the Land........ ..unhappy and gloomy, while a lowly servant had so much joy.

The King asked the servant, " How come you are so happy?"

The man replied, " Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but my family and I don't need too much........ ....just a roof over our heads and warm food to fill our tummies ."

The king was not satisfied with that reply. Later in the day, he

sought the advice of his most trusted advisor. After hearing the

King's woes and the servant's story, the advisor said, " Your

Majesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part of The 99 Club."

" The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?" the King inquired.

The advisor replied, " Your Majesty, to truly know what The 99 Club is.......... .place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave it at this servant's doorstep."

When the servant saw the bag.......he took it into his house. When he opened the bag, he let out a great shout of joy....... many gold coins!

He began to count them. After several counts.....he was at last

convinced that there were 99 coins. He wondered, " What could've happened to that last gold coin? Surely, no one would leave 99 coins! "

He looked everywhere he could..... but that last coin was elusive.

Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going to have to work

harder than ever to earn that gold coin and complete his collection.

From that day....the servant's life changed. He was overworked,

horribly grumpy, and castigated his family for not helping him make that 100th gold coin. He felt so unhappy all the time.... he stopped singing while he worked.

Witnessing this drastic transformation. ...the King was puzzled. When he sought his advisor's help, the advisor said, " Your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club. "

He continued, " The 99 Club is a name given to those people who have enough to be happy but are never contented... ....because they're always yearning and striving for that extra 1....... telling themselves: "Let me get that one final thing and then I will be happy for life ."

We too can be happy with very little in our lives....... but the minute we're given something bigger and better...... we need to watch out for our monkey minds ......... which may want even more!

We lose our sleep....... .our happiness... ...we hurt the people around us.......all these as a price for our growing needs and desires.

So my dear brothers & sisters...... ...its all up to us.......whether we

want to join 'The 99 Club' .........or not!

The Yin-yang of Proverbs

Yin-yang can be explained as the principle of the harmony of the opposites.  It takes two extremes to create a balance.  This is the nature of things.

Humans have also created Yin-yang proverbs.  The truth depends on which side you are in.

Enjoy the paradox of wise quotes:

All good things come to those who wait.
Time and tide wait for no man.

The pen is mightier than the sword.
Actions speak louder than words.

Wise men think alike.
Fools seldom differ.

The best things in life are free things..
There's no such thing as a free lunch.

Slow and steady wins the race.
Time waits for no man.

Look before you leap.
Strike while the iron is hot.

Do it well, or not at all.
Half a loaf is better than none.

Birds of a feather flock together.
Opposites attract.

Don't cross your bridges before you come to them.
Forewarned is forearmed.

Doubt is the beginning of wisdom.
Faith will move mountains.

Great starts make great finishes.
It ain't over 'till it's over.

Practice makes perfect.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Silence is golden.
The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

You're never too old to learn.
You can't teach an old dog new tricks

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
One man's food is another man's poison.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Out of sight, out of mind.

Too many cooks spoil the broth.
Many hands make light work.

Hold fast to the words of your ancestors.
Wise men make proverbs and fools repeat them.

My first chiku fruit from my chiku plant!

I waited and waited and waited for it to ripen.  Each time I very gently touched it, "still hard".  Got suspicious and seek advice from USJ Forum and they thought that chiku may not ripen on tree.  So I decided to pluck it.  With precious fruit in my palm, I began to really pressed it and to my horror a part of it has already become too soft.  Silly me.  The fruit has already ripen ages ago and I was too gentle, feeling it.  Must thank the birds for not eating it.  Cut it opened, sliced out the over ripen part, and wifey and I got to enjoy the tastiest  chiku that we have ever tasted.  Now you can only "enjoy" the photos.

The last photo is passion fruit, also from my garden.  It's fairly small.  About the size of a big egg; only half the size of the commercial ones.
