    You could have talked about this in Cozumel – “What gender is ‘computer’?”

    Subject: you could have talked about this in Cozumel

    A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. House for instance, is feminine: ‘la casa.’ Pencil, however, is masculine: ‘el lapis’.

    A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?" Instead of giving the answer the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether ‘computer’ should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

    Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

    The men's group decided that ‘computer’ should definitely be of the feminine gender ‘la computadora’ because (1) No-one but their creator understands their internal logic, (2) The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else, (3) Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval, and (4) As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your pay cheque on accessories for it.

    The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be masculine ‘el computador’ because (1) In order to do anything with them you have to turn them on, (2) They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves, (3) They are supposed to help you solve problems but half the time they ARE the problem, and (4) As soon as you commit to one you realize that if you had waited a little longer you could have got a better model.

    The women won.

    The Miracle of Computers! 

     
     
    Hope you enjoy this one- it's interesting to see all that is included. It would prove invaluable assistance to anyone studying history or biographies. 
    Well worth saving for students.
     
    Now take a look at this picture…..

    Painted by Chinese Artists, Dai Dudu, Li Tiezi and Zhang An, oil on canvas, 2006.

    This painting is truly remarkable. 
    Even more amazing though, is that the canvas has been computerized.
     
    When you click on the link below, a much bigger version of the computerized painting appears.
     
    Run your cursor over the people. 
    The programme tells you who they are – every single one of them.
     
    BUT (click on a person) and you obtain the individual’s life history. 
    This is fascinating… Can keep you busy for hours!

    Father Ignacio

    Subject: Fwd: Fw: Father Ignacio


    You may not end up where you thought you were going….but you will always end up where you were meant to be……
     
    Father Ignacio is the healing priest of the Rosary. He is excellent and truly cures. He has performed many miracles of healing. This is a novena of Father Ignacio that he began the 10th of January 2005, and still has not been broken.

     
    When you receive it, pray a Hail Mary and ask for a special favor. You will see what will happen the 4th day of having received this.

     
    "Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen." (Ask for your favor)

     
    Please do not break this novena. Send it to 6 persons (or as many as you know believe in the power of prayer) that you believe deserve justice, peace, love, health, prosperity, and well being.
