This ode is to express my love to you, the love of my life, My Buki as you celebrate another glorious year on earth.
B, we have been married for 10 years, Come April 5th we will celebrate 15 years since our first kiss.
You are my love, my soul mate, my best friend, the mother of our two wonderful children ( Who absolutely adore you).
You are the apple of my eyes, the reason that I live. You are all that I could wish for. My heart to you I gave (and still give).
A gift from God, a gift so fine that you can never be measured. A jewel of inestimable value.
A love so fine, so sweet, so kind, it’s you my love, you, my wife, my treasure.

I just want to utter a few words to thank you for always being my best friend.
You carry many burdens, and your heart is sometimes broken by all the thanks you never get, and all the words unspoken.
I know your life is not your own, I always seem so needy, the children as well. And asking you to do one more thing, I feel so really greedy.
How can I ever thank you, For all you have done for me? I can only give you all my heart, And love you till eternity.


  • Love you endlessly
  • Devote my life to making you happy
  • Admire you each day for the person you are
  • Take entrust in the things that you like to do
  • Admire your beauty daily in awe and reflect it back to you
  • Be attentive to you and your needs
  • Be forgiving (wink wink)*
  • Listen to you with never a harsh word in return (I swear it and pray for it in Gods name)*
  • Show you by my actions that I love you
  • Be more open and fun to you, your family & friends
  • Never go to bed without you
  • Rub you, kiss you, bathe you, lift you up or what ever it takes when you are feeling down.

You are the mother of my children and the air that gives me life.
My truest friend of all, my heart, my soul, my wife. I love you very much, you are all that is good in this world to me.

Happy birthday my love.

love you, now and always, till death do us part.



No Text Please, We’re Parents January 22, 2014

Hahahhahah typical of grannies.
my parents are 69 and 75 but they both have smartphones. They both use whatsapp and BBM. ( can you beat that?). Mum told me a few days ago she would soon sign up on facebook.

A Map of California

When I visited my parents recently, I sat down with my mother to show her photos on my iPhone.  There were photos from Thanksgiving, from Hanukkah and from my father’s eightieth birthday celebration, along with pictures from back in the summer — some really good shots I took of our family Fathers’ Day brunch in Los Angeles and my nephew’s college graduation dinner.

Although my mother enjoyed the photos, the problem, she says, is that they’re not real.  You can’t touch them, put them in an album, let them gather dust in a closet until you pull them out for special occasions.

I assured her that the photos can be printed and that we would make this happen.

After we got home, I emailed the photos to my wife, who uploaded them to walmart.com.  For about three dollars, Wal-Mart printed them and mailed them out to my parents.

They called…

For the Woman I Found Dead in the Starbucks Parking Lot January 22, 2014

I thought you were sleeping. It seems silly now, but you must understand, when one sees a person slumped over inside a parked car, the most reasonable conclusion is rarely that the person slumped over is dead. It was the lights from the dashboard that caught my eye. If it weren’t for the lights, I would have missed you completely, and – who knows? – you may still be lying out there, unknowing of the legions of addicts drawn to the verifiable Mecca of caffeine. You’d remain oblivious to the following day’s massive local windstorm and the city’s collective anxiety, followed by elation, when our beloved Seahawks won the big game. You might still be slumped awkwardly over your console, and I suppose your car would be run dry of gas by then, but folks would not be any more observant.

I say it was the lights on your dashboard…

How To Be a WordPress.com Detective January 22, 2014

WordPress.com News

Last year, we looked at the art and science of getting good WordPress support.

Now, let’s jump into some of the more advanced troubleshooting techniques you can use to tackle the trickier problems you might come up against.

Have you heard the old joke:

Patient:Doctor, it hurts when I do this.
Doctor:Then don’t do that!

With advanced troubleshooting it’s exactly the opposite! You want to be able to reliably reproduce your symptoms. Knowing exactly how to recreate the problem will be a huge help in figuring out how to fix it.

Your visual editor isn’t loading! You can’t drag-and-drop widgets! Your sticky posts aren’t sticking!

Finding the cause of a WordPress.com problem is like detective work. You look for clues. You find likely suspects. You narrow down the perpetrators.

The first question to usually ask yourself is: What did I change most recently? Undoing your last action very…
