"If I ever forget, can I come over for a reminder?"
"Bloody hell!"
Les and Rich had gone to bed. Sue annoyingly got into a conversation with
two newly arrived couples from Canada, so I settled back to watch some live
cricket from South Africa. Brian Lara was at the wicket and entertaining
the large crowd with another faultless display.
I have been going to college for some time now. I'm a young woman who comes
from Mexico. I am kind of new to America. It's alright out here. I don't
mind. The weather bothers me sometimes, though. It makes you want to come
up with ways to keep warm. My name is Sierra Caliente. My last name means
heat. I'd like to tell you of a time when I went in heat.
Then Kip suddenly leaps out from the side of the stage, and he's waving
this bloody-great knife around. And the chanting gets louder again. And I
kept thinking 'no, please don't hurt Janice. How am I ever going to explain
this to me mum and dad?' Of course, the knife's made of rubber, but you
can't see that from the audience, and after a lot of prancing around and
running it over Janice's body, with all the chanting going on, he lifts it
up, points it between Janice's tits and brings it down. All the lights go
out, Janice screams and I faint.

Still I rise

i've been teaching this poem to the senior classes for the past four years.
Each time i find myself loving it more and more. It inspires one and makes
one believe that anything is possible as long as one has the strong will
and determination of a MAYA ANGELOU.

* Constrictive clothing, shoes, or appliances
* Sex is for younger people.
Substantial evidence indicates that cocaine use causes accelerated coronary
atherosclerosis. According to a 1995 study of trauma fatalities among men
with a mean age of 34 years and an incidental finding of cocaine
metabolites, 25% had lesions in 2 or more vessels, and 19% had disease in
3-4 vessels. Of the control subjects, only 6% had 2-vessel disease, and
none had 3- or 4-vessel disease. In another study of 22 long-term cocaine
users with a mean age of 32 years, all of whom died suddenly with
detectable serum cocaine levels, severe narrowing of more than 75%
cross-sectional area was found in 1 or more coronary arteries in 36% of
Psychological causes: There are a number of possible psychological causes.
Fear and anxiety can cause a lack of confidence and result in impotence.
Stress over work, relationships and pressure to perform are becoming
increasingly common in men. Depression and bereavement are also potential

"I am the dream and the hope of the slave"
"I rise"
"I rise"
Thank you Madam Angelou for this great poem that mean so much to all of us.
Although we might have been slaves for many years sometimes our own
thoughts and choices we make are still enslaving us till today.
