Have you ever thought of Angels
Watching over you at night?
Have you asked for their protection
At the early morning light?
Have you heard a word of caution
FaIling softly on your ear?
Or in times of sudden danger,
Have you sensed them drawing near?
Have you almost heard their footsteps
At the closing of the day,
When your heart communed with Jesus
And your burdens slipped away?
Though unseen, they're always ready
To respond to God's command --
Messengers come down from Heaven,
Sent to lead us by the hand.

Making Friends

Making Friends
If nobody smiled and nobody cheered
and nobody helped us along;
If every man looked after himself
and good things all went to the strong;
If nobody cared just a little for you,
and nobody thought about me
And we all stood alone in the battle of life,
what a dreary old world this would be!
Life is sweet because of the friends we've made.
All things in common we share.
We want to live on, not because of ourselves,
but because of the people who care.
It's giving and doing for somebody else -
on that all life's splendor depends;
And the joy of the world when you sum it all up,
is formed in the making of friends.

I Prayed to my Master

I prayed to the Master, for Wisdom Divine.
He said understanding, will open your mind.
The key you have with you, is all faith, trust, and love.
In your inner self, and your God above.
The Golden Rule, our Maker bestowed.
On all of His children, has always been told.
Your own mind is your business, and should be first hand.
If you can control it, then, you've mastered God's plan.
May peace and contentment, be your constant companion.

You are stuggling

You are stuggling...
I see it,I feel it,
I hurt for you.
But I must tell you, dear friend,
I believe with all my heart
that you will emerge somehow wiser, stronger,
and more aware.
Hold on to that thought,
tuck it away in a
corner of your heart
until the hurt melts enough
for the learning to have


When you're criticizing others And are finding here and there
A fault or two to speak of Or a weakness you can't bear.
When you're blaming someone's weakness Or accusing some of self...
It's time that you went out To walk around yourself.
There are lots of human failures In the average of us all.
And lots of grave shortcomings In the short ones and the tall.
But when we think of evils Men should lay upon the shelves,
It's time we all went out To take a walk around ourselves.
We need so often in this life This balancing of scales.
This seeing how much in us wins And how much in us fails.
But before you judge another Just to lay him on the shelf
It would be a splendid plan To take a walk around yourself.

It's A Most Unusual Day

It's A Most Unusual Day
William Arthur Ward
TODAY is a most unusual day, because we have never lived it before; we will never
live it again; it is the only day we have.
TODAY can be a healthy unusual day for you--and for others--if you take time to give
someone a express a word of lend a helping hand to someone
in write a note of gratitude... to give a word of encouragement to someone
who is temporarily overcome with share a portion of your material possessions with others.
LOSE YOURSELF in generous service and every day can be a most unusual day, a
triumphant day, an abundantly rewarding day!


If the world was blind,

maybe then we'd see

the true side of beauty,

deep within you and me.

No one could judge us

by our outer looks,

like the fancy coverson expensive books.

We'd see with our hearts,

and not just our eyes,

and what we'd discovermight be a surprise.

There would be no needto try to impress,

with the way we look,or the way that we dress.

The only thing that would matteris the way we would feel,

not phoney or cheap,but truthful and real.


This is How Evolution Took Place

Parachute mind

The mind is like a parachute,
it only functions when its open.

The Indian Ten Commandments

The Indian Ten Commandments
Treat the Earth and all that dwell there in with respect
Remain close to the Great Spirit
Show great respect for your fellow beings
Work together for the benefit of all Mankind
Give assistance and kindness wherever needed
Do what you know to be right
Look after the well-being of Mind and Body
Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater Good
Be truthful and honest at all times
Take full responsibility for your actions


Outside my window a new day
I can seeAnd only I can determine what kind of day it will be.
It can be busy and sunny, laughing and gay,
Or boring and cold, unhappy and gray.
My own state of mind is the determining key,
For I am only the person I let myself be.
I can be thoughtful and do all I can to help,
Or be selfish and think only of myself.
I can enjoy what I do and make it seem fun,
Or gripe and complain and make it hard on someone.
I can be patient with those who make it hard to understand,
Or belittle and hurt them as much as I can.
But I have faith in myself, and believe what I say,
And I personally intend to make the best of each day.

The Pearl

The Pearl
There are many fish in the ocean that swim and swirlBut it's the oyster that turns water into Pearl;Ideas numerous, as many drops as the ocean can holdBut it's the person who can turn ideas into gold.


by Henry Vaughan
My Soul, there is a country
Afar beyond the stars,
Where stands a winged sentry
All skillful in the wars;
There, above noise and danger
Sweet Peace sits, crown'd with smiles,
And One born in a manger
Commands the beauteous files.
He is thy gracious friend
And (O my Soul awake!)
Did in pure love descend,
To die here for thy sake.
If thou canst get but thither,
There grows the flow'r of peace,
The rose that cannot wither,
Thy fortress, and thy ease.
Leave then thy foolish ranges,
For none can thee secure,
But One, who never changes,
Thy God, thy life, thy cure.

I confess that I am greatly apathetic about pretty much everything ~ except the fact that America is going down the toilet while we stick our heads in the sand. "We have met the enemy, and it is us." Thanks to georgebird for posting such an intriguing and apt visual of our impending downfall!!

Not Alcoholic its Internethollic

"A man in southern China appears to have died of exhaustion after a three-day Internet gaming binge, state media said. The 30-year-old man fainted at a cybercafe in the city of Guangzhou after he had been playing games online for three days, the Beijing News reported.Paramedics tried to revive him but failed and he was declared dead at the cafe. The paper said that he may have died from exhaustion brought on by too many hours on the Internet. The report did not say what the man was playing."This takes computer addiction to a whole new level: death!!


Example of Gandhijis Talisman!!!!!!!!!!!

This makes my heart ache so much. :-( It makes all my problems seem so miniscul in comparison.


Boost is the Secret of My Energy!!!!!

Lovely art here

This one really tugged at my heartstrings!!!

An Indonesian fisherman who feared that he would be killed by tree-like growths covering his body has been given hope of recovery by an American doctor.Dede, now 35, baffled medical experts when warty "roots" began growing out of his arms and feet after he cut his knee in a teenage accident. The welts spread across his body unchecked and soon he was left unable to carry out everyday household tasks.But now an American dermatology expert who flew out to Dede's home village south of the capital Jakarta claims to have identified his condition, and proposed a treatment that could transform his life.



I Dare You To Move[Sap Alert!] This is a bit difficult for me to express on a public forum, but I often find myself in a place of apathy and hopelessness, as is common for those of us who deal with depression and bipolar issues. I have found this song to be inspirational and a bit of a "wake-up" call when I feel lost. When my own willpower fails me, often motivation from external sources will come to my rescue. I hope that by sharing this, maybe the sentiments expressed in this particular song will help motivate others who are also struggling with sadness and a pervasive sense of utter futility in life. But life is worth living ~ we have to somehow continue to fight the darkness and find peace in knowing that we are stronger than these things that hold us back. For those that are blessed not to have such issues, this is still an awsome song!!

Dare You To MoveWelcome to the planetWelcome to existenceEveryone's hereEveryone's hereEveryone's watching you nowEverybody waits for you nowWhat happens next?[Chorus:]I dare you to moveI dare you to moveI dare you to lift yourself up off the floorI dare you to moveI dare you to moveLike today never happenedToday never happened beforeWelcome to the falloutWelcome to resistanceThe tension is hereThe tension is hereBetween who you are and who you could beBetween how it is and how it should be[Chorus]Maybe redemption has stories to tellMaybe forgiveness is right where you fellWhere can you run to escape from yourself?Where you gonna go?Where you gonna go?Salvation is here[Chorus]Dare You To MoveWelcome to the planetWelcome to existenceEveryone's hereEveryone's hereEveryone's watching you nowEverybody waits for you nowWhat happens next?[Chorus:]I dare you to moveI dare you to moveI dare you to lift yourself up off the floorI dare you to moveI dare you to moveLike today never happenedToday never happened beforeWelcome to the falloutWelcome to resistanceThe tension is hereThe tension is hereBetween who you are and who you could beBetween how it is and how it should be[Chorus]Maybe redemption has stories to tellMaybe forgiveness is right where you fellWhere can you run to escape from yourself?Where you gonna go?Where you gonna go?Salvation is here[Chorus]

Never Forget

Never Forget

Your presence is a present to the world.
You're unique and one of a kind. Your life can be what you want it to be. Take the days, just one at a time. Count your blessings, not your troubles. You'll make it through, whatever comes along. Within you are so many answers. Understand, have courage, be strong. Don't put limits on yourself. So many dreams are waiting to be realized. Decisions are too important to leave to chance. Reach for your peak, your goal and your prize. Nothing wastes more energy than worrying. The longer one carries a problem, the heavier it gets. Don't take things too seriously. Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets. Remember that a little love goes a long way. Remember that a lot . . . goes forever. Remember that friendship is a wise investment. Life's treasures are people . . . together. Realize that it's never too late. Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way. Have health, hope and happiness. Take the time to wish upon a star. And don't ever forget . . . For even a day . . . How very special you are. ~ Author Unknown

Meet The three Suzuki Hya Brothers

American Suzuki introduced 14 new or revised 2008-model motorcycles and ATVs today at its annual dealer meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, and among the new models was a thoroughly-revised Hayabusa, the much-anticipated B-King muscle bike and a new entry-level sportbike, the GSX650F.

Although it looks very similar to the existing Hayabusa, the new GSX1300R is full of revisions, especially its engine. The ram-air-fed, liquid-cooled, DOHC, inline Four retains the same bore, 81.0mm, but gets 2mm more of stroke, up to 65.0mm, for an increased displacement of 1340cc.

The engine has four titanium (intake and exhaust) valves per cylinder, a compression ratio of 12.5:1, revised cam specs, Suzuki Dual Throttle Valves (SDTV) in the 44mm throttle bodies, two multi-hole fuel injectors per cylinder, a three-way Suzuki Drive Mode Selector switch and Suzuki’s “most powerful, most advanced digital fuel injection and engine management system” controlling it all.

In print, Suzuki claims a 12% increase in peak power and torque output for the new Hayabusa, and American Suzuki Vice President, Motorcycle and ATV Division Mel Harris told his dealers this equated to 195 horsepower, presumably at the crankshaft.

The GSX1300R also gets a revised twin-spar aluminum frame, a more rigid swingarm, a beefier rear subframe, fully-adjustable KYB suspension, radial-mount four-piston Tokico front brake calipers and more aerodynamic bodywork. Wheelbase is 58.5 inches (1485mm), rake is 24.2, trail is 98mm/3.9 inches, dry weight is 485 pounds and suggested retail price is $11,999.

The B-King is a limited-edition streetbike based on a concept bike that was shown at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2001 and created so much demand it was put into production. The B-King shares the new Hayabusa’s 1340cc engine, but it gets a unique chassis and very unique styling.

Its twin-spar aluminum alloy frame is composed of five “precision cast” pieces, and its braced swingarm is formed with three “pressure cast” pieces. KYB supplies the three-way adjustable suspension (front and rear), and Nissin manufacturers the radial-mount four-piston front brake calipers. Rake is 25.5º, trail is 107mm/4.2 inches, wheelbase is 60.0 inches, dry weight is 518 pounds and claimed dry weight is $12,899.

To fill the entry-level sportbike gap left when the Katana 600 and 750 were discontinued from Suzuki’s product line last year, Suzuki has developed the fully-faired GSX650F, which is powered by a liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder engine displacing 656cc with a bore of 65.5mm, a stroke of 48.7mm and a compression ratio of 11.5:1. Each cylinder has four valves per cylinder, which are actuated by double overhead camshafts, which are in turn driven by a centrally-located cam chain. The engine is fed by 36mm throttle bodies equipped with SDTV and controlled by a 32-bit, 256kb engine management system. The engine is backed by a six-speed transmission, which transmits power to the rear wheel via a roller chain.

The GSX650F’s chassis is based around a tubular steel double-cradle frame. KYB supplies the spring-preload-adjustable 41mm forks and the two-way-adjustable rear shock. The dual front brake rotors measure 310mm and are grabbed by four-piston Tokico calipers. The 3.50 x 17.0-inch front and 5.00 x 17.0-inch rear cast aluminum alloy wheels come shod with 120/70-ZR17 and 160/60-ZR17 Bridgestone BT011 radials, respectively. Wheelbase is 1470mm (57.9 inches), rake is 26º, trail is 108mm/4.3 inches, seat height is 30.35 inches, claimed dry weight is 476 pounds and the manufacturer suggested retail price is $6999.

Suzuki plans to introduce updated versions of the GSX-R600 and GSX-R750 in October.

Look for more on these and other new Suzuki models in upcoming issues of Roadracing World.
Ford says the 2007 Shelby Cobra GT500 Mustang (this is not the 2006 Shelby GT500 Cobra Mustang) will be the most powerful factory-built Mustang in history, more powerful than the 1969 Mach 1 428 Super Cobra Jet or even the legendary 1969 Boss 429.

Think about that for a second. Let it sink in. Take a knee if you have to, but the reality is this: When this car hits the streets during the summer of 2006, it'll have 450-plus horsepower, making it the most powerful Mustang ever.
