Among the many kinds of ants, the South American leaf-cutting ant amazes biologist with its sophisticated gardening techniques. To provide food, this tiny insects cuts leaf fragments and gathers debris from the forest floor and brings these back to its underground nest. The ant then grinds these bits into a mash to feed its fungus garden. This leaf cutter instinctively knows how to keep its crop at an ideal temperature and humidity level to obtain the best results. To create new allotments, it will transfer cuttings from established crops to newer leaf beds. The leaf-cutting ant has even mastered the art of pruning to maximize fungal growth. Researchers have observed that this skillful horticulturist (art and science of cultivating plants) adjust its efforts according to the food needs of the nest, thus conserving time and energy.

Gardening involves hard work, and the leaf-cutting ant is astounding in this regard. As a certain proverb said, "Go to the ant you lazy one, see its ways and become wise. Although it has no commander, officer or ruler, it prepares its food even in the summer, it has gathered its food supplies even in the harvest." Truely, they are beautiful tiny creatures, created for humans like us to learn from.

ThIs iS a stoRy aboUt foUr peopLe nAmed...

There was an important job to be done and EVERYBODY was sure that SOMEBODY would do it, but NOBODY did it. SOMEBODY got angry about that, because it was EVERYBODY's job. EVERYBODY thought that ANYBODY could do it, but NOBODY realized that EVERYBODY wouldn't do it. It ended up that EVERYBODY blamed SOMEBODY when NOBODY did what ANYBODY could have done.

These shots were taken at my friends house a few months ago. The dog's name is Puti and the kitten..oh I forgot,LOL! It's a fact that cats and dogs hate each other so much, but this time it is absolutely wrong! I miss my dog morgan, he used to play with muymuy my miming..huhuhu!
Isn't it amazing seeing this picture! It is indeed possible for two very opposite souls to be friends.
We sometimes prejudge people, thinking that we are from very opposite worlds. But what we must always remember is that no matter what... every life in this planet is precious and should be treated with respect. Who knows, we might cherish the soul at first we just think of as nothing special. And honestly, this makes me feel a little guilty.
Cats and Dogs, they can be best of friends!

I signed up f0r PPP!

I've always love to write! I do it for school projects, for therapy and simply a hobby. Though I like to write but all my writings I just kept to myself, I mean mostly. But eversince then, I've hoped for a day to come that I can finally be able to nurture this passion of mine. Then one day, my sister introduced blogging to me. She told me all the good things it does to her. And she was right! I never thought it could be this much fun and amazing!
Through blogging, I've somehow develop my writing skills, enter different worlds, made new good friends and offcourse earn. It is indeed a blessing being able to earn in the convenience of your own home. With no wierd boss and no unneccessary pressures that are really annoying,LOL!

One good way of making money with blogging is through PayPerPost. Recommended by bloggers all over the world. I'm just so happy that right now I'm a certified member of the PPP family. Through PPP's blog ads, I will have the oppurtunity of sharing the things I enjoy, plus the bonus of earning. I've heard many good words about PPP and the blessings it brings to many lives. You can also join PPP, this is an oppurtunity you must not miss! Anyways, I'm so looking forward to a great journey ahead. Today I got approved for PayPerPost!

***start here***

A tag for aLL Filipinos

The 2008 Miss Universe comes to Vietnam for a night of stars and glamour in search of the most beautiful woman in the world! The winner for Best National Costume will be decided by online votes. So now, the main objective of this tag is to increase awareness for all Filipinos regarding the online voting. Let's VOTE for our very unique Philippine National Costume worn by our representative, Jennifer Barrientos.
General Instructions:
1. Go to THIS LINK!
2. In the Menu Bar just above the thumbnail pictures of the delegates, click ASIA/AUSTRALIA.
3. Look for the Philippines' Costume (like the picture above & it's actually in the page 2).
4. Click its thumbnail.
5. After clicking, a preview will then appear on the right side of the page. Click "SELECT THIS DELEGATE" located just below that preview.
6. The bad things is, we are to choose 3 delegates! So be sure NOT to vote for those countries that will surely be a strong competitor for the AWARD! :)
7. After choosing the Philippines and the "other" two countries, click on "SUBMIT VOTE" located just below the thumbnail pictures.
8. Follow the SIMPLE instructions after that!
9. You're done! Go Philippines!
- As much as possible, TAG all your FILIPINO friends.

Have you ever touched an electric light bulb that has been on for a while, you know that it can get very hot. The heat produced by the bulb results from wasted energy. A typical light bulb gives off only 10 percent of its energy as light, while 90 percent is wasted as heat. In comparison, the tiny-producing insect called the firefly is nearly 100 percent efficient.

Fireflies waste so little energy as heat that the light they produce has been termed "Perfect Light." How do they do it? The abdomen of a firefly contains an organic substance known as luciferin. When oxygen is drawn into the abdomen through a tube called the abdominal trachea, it mixes with luciferin, and the resulting chemical reaction gives off a pale-yellow to reddish-green glow. The cells that produce the firefly's light also contain uric-acid crystals, which help to reflect the light away from the insect's abdomen. Scientists say that fireflies use their light to attract mates and that different species of fireflies flash different patterns and rhythms.

I've always been fascinated with the beauty of fireflies or anniniput, isn't it obvious..LOL! Though their just so tiny, but they can leave us all in owe everytime we see even just a single firefly. Oh I love to hold one someday...*sigh*

I had a restful sleep last night. The cold air and my thick blanket is just so perfect. But waking up this morning I felt so tired, I over-slept perhaps. I've been complaining about this pain in my back and neck for days, think I'm having sores. I guess mamita got irritated with me already so she had the manghihilot came by our house yesterday. I had a wonderful massage. From my scalp down to my lapa-lapa,LOL! My sores are relieved, though their still aching. I can't imagine my life without hilot or massage. I just can't live without it! Haahaaayyy, panuhuton man jud ko pirmi..ahihihi!

To all the manghihilot/therapist's who's always been there for me...THANK YOU!!! You are truely beautiful and with your hands, you never fail to make me feel better!
