THE BEAUTY OF MATH
I LOVE MATH, IT RELAXES ME. I LOVE THE PERFECTION AND THE "NO EXCEPTIONS" IT PROVIDES IN THIS COMPLICATED LIFE. HERE´S A LITTLE SOMETHING SOMEONE SENT ME THAT MADE ME SMILE.

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:What Equals 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?We have all been in situations where someone wants you to
GIVE OVER 100%.How about ACHIEVING 101%?What equals 100% in life?Here's a little mathematical formula that might help
answer these questions:
If:A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is represented as:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

If:H-A-R-D-W-O-R- K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

And:K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But:A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:
L-O-V-E-O-F-G-O-D

12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101%
Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude willget you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!

And look at this symmetry:
1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111=12345678987654321
1x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

ED pics, part 1.

I wonder if I can do this............post pics of others on my blog. I guess if I can´t I´ll hear of it soon enough.

This was one afternoon when we went to the beach just to chill (and some to tan).My conversation with Jordan when he saw the above pic (Simona, Benedicte, Sophie, Christina and I)
Jordan: Mommy, are those your friends?
Me: Yes, I guess so
Jordan: Woooooooooooow, you should go the park more often to make friends.......
Me: ¿¿??? (thinking to myself) And he´s only five...................


This is not a great pic, but I like the flash. All the pics were taken by Jonny, except this one where he comes out- I guess I might have taken it........



It´d be a shame to NOT post some of the beauties I got to hang around with.

My dear coworker Ang, and her cute little man who does not seem to love me, next time I see him I shall have pockets full of candies and other such bribery details.

The tourist thing..............
A lot has happened this last week. I helped organize an Education Seminar for 86 attendees, it was in Salou in Hotel Calypso and all in all it was great fun and a load of work............... a big thanks to all of you who made my stay happier, I´ll post more on this later and with more pics.

On arriving my in laws came for a visit so now we have a Phillips family reunion (minus prodigal world traveller Trinity) and we went out to do the tourist thing around Valencia seeing we are in fallas (the fiestas of Valencia, google it cause I´m too lazy to explain). Anyhow, the mascletá took on a different meaning in my heart which probably means I´m finally becoming one with the people here and then we roamed around for hours in our search for somewhere to have tapas, though alas, everything was full. Finally at 5 we found a place and finished our lunch at seven................not super typical Spanish although not completely odd either. All in all it was an enjoyable daywith sore feet.

Here we are................being real tourists................



Our tapas................well, this was more like the end where all you can see are the beer bottles left over, you got three for 1€ here..................great place!!!!


One of the Phillips family..................you must admit I married into a good looking family though I still walked off with the best deal.


The extended family





In honour to my wonderful Adam, Happy Father´s Day!!!! Here´s one with his niece who he is crazy about, he´s just a wonderful father figure and this is why I posted this pic. I love you honey, thanks for being our daddy and I hope you enjoy your niece enough because there are no little girls coming my way for you...........

Happy Birthday darling! I guess if you consider the whole spectrum of life you really are not THAAAAAAAAAT old.......................

Just kidding babe, you´re wonderful, handsome, fun and caring and I´m honored and happy to be able to celebrate this day by your side. May the Lord grant you the desires of your heart and bring many wonderful things your way this coming year.

I love the way you keep going and fighting things through even though it´s not your cup of tea, you´ve always been a great sample to me of that. Keep fighting your way through this year till you reach your goals in life and then some more. I just want you to know that I´m very happy to be by your side- you make my days and my life a little brighter each day.

Yours forever,
me
