Words of wisdom on Halloween and Cork Ireland

Consider the Virtues of Others 

Spend time thinking about the virtues of other people. Not merely as a passing thought - but try to feel pleasure in thinking of their virtues

Love Yehuda Lave

Our third day we continue in Cork with a double deck tour of the historic areas. It was like a Disneyland wild Mr. Turtle ride.

More words of wisdom on this Halloween

There is a VERY important lesson here.

A business man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"

"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.

"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?" the man asked.

"No, I don't waste time fishing," the homeless man said. "I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."

"Will you spend this on green fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked.

"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!"

"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."

The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that?"

The man replied, "Don't worry about that. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking, fishing and go

Mathematics ---WOW -- Amazing and purposefulness lightens suffering and Cork Ireland

Halloween is coming tomorrow, even in IRAN

Purposefulness Lightens Suffering

The Talmud states that all suffering is purposeful. When we suffer, we should view it as a message to check our behavior for areas we can improve.

Viewing suffering as meaningless increases one's pain. When you find meaning and purpose in suffering, it becomes much easier to bear. The more meaning you see, the lighter the burden. The worst suffering is when one feels there is no purpose in it.

The basic Bible perspective is that whatever happens to a person is purposeful and ultimately for his good.

UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE -and deliberate for peace of mind and Waterford crystal

Deliberate For Peace Of Mind

Rabbi Simcha Zissel of Kelm constantly stressed the importance of working on peace of mind. He suggested the following exercises:

- When you wish to tell someone a piece of news, wait at least fifteen minutes until you tell it to someone else.

- When someone asks you for advice, don't give an immediate reply. Think over your response for at least five minutes. -

Before you speak to someone, think first about your goals. -

Love Yehuda Lave

On our second day in Ireland we finish a tour of Waterford Crystal in Waterford and enjoy its uniqueness. Still hand made at 33% lead.

New Musical instrument, Anna_Kostenko_Paintings, and Waterford Crystal-making it

All Experiences can be Elevating

The Bible attitude toward life is that we should utilize every experience as a tool for elevation. Even when someone acts toward us in a condescending manner, we can view the situation in a positive manner and grow from the experience.

Accepting that you create your emotional pain gives you the motivation to overcome it by changing your attitude toward your situation

.Love Yehuda Lave

On the second day of our trip we pull into the city on the coast of Atlantic famous for making Crystal. Because of its location on the coast, raw materials could be brought in and out and the business thrived for hundreds of years, until bankruptcy took it a couple of years ago. It has been reborn on a more limited basis.

Stunning photos of 2012 and when things don't work out as planned and making Waterford Crystal

When Things Don't Work Out as Planned

Not everything will turn out the way we wish it would. Since we will have to deal with this, we need to think about how we will react when things don't happen as planned. Your reactions to these situations will always depend on your self-talk.

If your self-talk is the kind you have when you are angry, sad, bitter, or stressed, you will become angry, sad, bitter, or stressed. If your self- talk is the kind you have when you react wisely or joyfully, you will become wiser or joyful.

If your self-talk is the kind you have when you react in a spiritually elevated way, you will become more spiritual. If your self-talk is the kind you have when you find something good and positive, you will find something good and positive and will feel good.

Regardless of your initial reaction, you can always choose to change your current self-talk. You can learn to respond in the way that you really wish to respond.
Love Yehuda Lave
At the end of our Second day we pull into Waterford and learn how they make Waterford Crystal

Party appears to be ending for Somali pirates and scripts that create patience and the Round tower from the year 600 in KILKENNY

Patience Enhancing Scripts

What are some of the scripts that create patience?

"Things are going as fast as they are. I will do what I can to speed things up and I will accept the reality with serenity."

"Each second of life is precious. And I won't waste it by causing myself needless distress."

"One never knows where it is best for one to be at any given moment. I will try to make the wisest choices. But I will realize that where I am could be the best thing for me."

"I choose my emotional state and I am committed to living my life experiencing positive, resourceful states."

"Opportunities for personal growth can be found wherever one is and in any given situation. Right now I will look at the present as a gift opportunity."

Party appears to be ending for Somali pirates

Published September 25, 2012

Associated Press

    HOBYO, Somalia –  The empty whiskey bottles and overturned, sand-filled skiffs littering this once-bustling shoreline are signs the heyday of Somali piracy may be over. Most of the prostitutes are gone and the luxury cars repossessed. Pirates while away their hours playing cards or catching lobsters.

    "There's nothing to do here these days," said Hassan Abdi, a high school graduate who taught English in a private school before turning to piracy in 2009. "The hopes for a revitalized market are not high."

    Armed guards aboard cargo ships and an international naval armada that carries out onshore raids have put a huge dent in piracy and might even be ending the scourge.

    While experts say it's too early to declare victory, the numbers are startling: In 2010, pirates seized 47 vessels. This year they've taken five.

    For a look at the reality behind those numbers, an Associated Press team from the capital, Mogadishu, traveled to the pirate havens of Galkayo and Hobyo, a coastal town considered too dangerous for Western reporters since the kidnappers have turned to land-based abductions over the last year.

    There they found pirates who once owned vast villas living in darkened, unfurnished rooms, hiding from their creditors.

    Prostitute Faduma Ali longs for the days when her pirate customers had money. As she smoked a hookah in a hot, airless room in Galkayo last week, she sneered as she answered a phone call from a former customer seeking some action on credit.

    "Those days are over. Can you pay me $1,000?" she asked. That's what she once got for a night's work. "If not, goodbye and leave me alone."

    "Money," she groaned as she hung up.

    The caller, Abdirizaq Saleh, once had bodyguards and maids and the attention of beautiful women. When ransoms came in, a party was thrown, with blaring music, bottles of wine, the stimulant khat and a woman for every man.

    Now Saleh is hiding from creditors in a dirty room filled with dust-covered TVs and high-end clothes he acquired when flush.

    "Ships are being held longer, ransoms are getting smaller and attacks are less likely to succeed," said Saleh, sitting on a threadbare mattress covered by a mosquito net. A plastic rain jacket he used at sea dangled from the door.

    Somali pirates hijacked 46 ships in 2009 and 47 in 2010, the European Union Naval Force says. In 2011, pirates launched a record number of attacks -- 176 -- but commandeered only 25 ships, an indication that new on-board defenses were working.

    The last of the five hijacked this year was the Liberian-flagged MV Smyrni, taken with its crew of 26 on May 10. They are still being held.

    "We have witnessed a significant drop in attacks in recent months. The stats speak for themselves," said Lt. Cmdr. Jacqueline Sherriff, a spokeswoman for the European Union Naval Force.

    Sherriff attributes the plunge in hijackings mostly to international military efforts -- European, American, Chinese, Indian, Russian -- that have improved over time. In May, after receiving an expanded mandate, the EU Naval Force destroyed pirate weapons, equipment and fuel on land. Japanese aircraft fly over the shoreline to relay pirate activity to nearby warships.

    Merchant ships have also increased their communications with patrolling military forces after pirate sightings, Sherriff said. Ships have bolstered their own defenses with armed guards, barbed wire, water cannons and safe rooms.

    No vessel with armed guards has ever been hijacked, noted Cyrus Moody of the International Maritime Bureau. A June report from the U.N. Monitoring Group on Somalia and Eritrea said armed guards have forced pirates to "abort attacks earlier and at greater ranges from targeted vessels."

    Some of those who live around Hobyo along central Somalia's Indian Ocean coastline say they never wanted the region to become a pirate den. Fishermen say piracy began around 2005 as a way to keep international vessels from plundering fish stocks off Somalia.

    But in the absence of law and order in a country that has not had an effective central government for two decades, ransoms grew and criminal networks planned more sophisticated operations, launching attacks on freighters and yachts from mother ships hundreds of miles offshore.

    Now things seem to be changing.

    Once lively Hobyo was quiet last weekend, except for the sight of legitimate fishermen taking their boats out to sea. The price of a cup of tea -- which cost 50 cents during the piracy boom -- has fallen back to 5 cents. The lobster haul has replaced international freighters as the topic of conversation.

    "The decline of piracy is a much-needed boon for our region," said Hobyo Mayor Ali Duale Kahiye. "They were the machines causing inflation, indecency and insecurity in the town. Life and culture is good without them."

    Two pirates with AK-47 assault rifles slung over their shoulders wandered along the beach near a Taiwanese fishing vessel that washed up on shore after the brigands who seized it were paid a ransom and released the crew.

    During the piracy boom, pirates could count on creditors to front the money to buy skiffs, weapons, fuel and food for their operations. Now financiers are more reluctant.

    Walking along a street in Galkayo, Saleh pointed to a villa with a garden of pink flowers he once owned. Short on cash, he was forced to hand it over to a creditor.

    Another pirate, Mohamed Jama, relinquished his car to a financier. European naval forces disrupted five of his hijacking attempts, he said, and destroyed skiffs and fuel he owned.

    "He could not pay my $2,000, so I had to take his $7,000 car," said the creditor, Fardowsa Mohamed Ali. "I am no longer in contact with pirates now because they are bankrupt and live like refugees."

    While many former pirates are unemployed, Mohamed Abdalla Aden has returned to his old job as a soccer coach for village boys. Aden said it now takes him a month to earn as much as he used to spend in a single day as a pirate.

    "The coasts became too dangerous," he said, holding an old, beat-up mobile phone. "Dozens of my friends are unaccounted for and some ended up in jail."

    An untold number of pirates have died at sea in violent confrontations, bad weather or ocean accidents. The U.N. says 1,045 suspected or convicted pirates are being held in 21 countries, including the U.S., Italy, France, the Netherlands, Yemen, India, Kenya, Seychelles and Somalia.

    "The risks involved in the hijacking attempts were very high. EU navies were our main enemy," Saleh said.

    Several pirate attacks made worldwide headlines, including a rescue in 2009 of an American hostage by Navy SEALs. Pirates still hold seven ships and 177 crew members, according to the EU Naval Force. At the height of Somali piracy, pirates held more than 30 ships and 600 hostages at a time.

    The overwhelming majority of hostages have been sailors on merchant ships, though European families have also been seized while traveling in the dangerous coastal waters. Four Americans were killed in February 2011 when the pirates who boarded their ship apparently became trigger-happy because of nearby U.S. warships.

    For the pirates, the risks of being arrested, killed or lost at sea are overshadowed by the potential for huge payouts. Ransoms for large ships in recent years have averaged close to $5 million. The largest reported ransom was $11 million for the Greek oil tanker MV Irene SL last year.

    When the monsoons that have roiled the Indian Ocean the past two months subside in about two weeks, the number of successful hijackings -- or lack thereof -- will go a long way toward telling if the heyday of Somali piracy is truly over.

    Still Somalia's widespread poverty and the lure of potential riches make it too soon to say whether the scourge has been squelched.

    "We hope so. But at the same time we are definitely advising all vessels not to become complacent just because the numbers are down," said Moody of the International Maritime Bureau. "The reward for the Somali pirate once they get a vessel is enormous, so just giving that up is probably not going to be easy."

    Abdi Farah, an elder in Galkayo, said he believes the end of piracy is near.

    "Pirates brought vices like drugs and AIDS, nothing else," he said. "There were no benefits."

    Japan and shrink problems down to size and Kilkenny-Dunmore Underground Cave

    Shrink Problems Down to Size

    The best way to gain a proper perspective about life is to visit a cemetery.

    You might have many problems, but that is part and parcel of being alive. Compared to those buried in the cemetery, just how serious are your difficulties?

    Learn to have a sense of proportion to events. If you fail to do so, you might react with equal levels of distress to someone's spilling soup on your clothes as you would to news of the outbreak of global nuclear warfare.

    Today, when something bothers you, ask yourself: "On a scale of one to 100 (with 100 applying to nuclear war), what number would I give this situation?"

    You'll find with this perspective that many potential mountains will easily shrink to molecules.

    Rabbi Nachum of Huradna used to say, "If I had already died and the Almighty told me I could come back to life again, imagine how happy I would be. Now that I am alive, I should feel that same joy!"

    Love Yehuda Lave

    Our second day of Ireland had three adventures, The Round Catherdal tower, The Kilkenny-Dunmore Cave (attached below) and our time in the Waterford Crystal Factory. Enjoy this short video

    Did you Know????


    Have you ever read in the newspaper that a political

    leader or a prime minister from an Islamic nation

    has visited Japan?

    Have you ever come across news that the King of

    Iran or a Saudi Arabia prince has visited Japan?


    Japan, a Country keeping Islam at bay.

    Japan has put strict restrictions on Islam and

    ALL Muslims.


    The reasons are:

    a) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship

    to Muslims.

    b) In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims.

    c) There is a strong ban on the propagation of Islam in

    Japan .

    d) In the University of Japan, Arabic or any Islamic

    language is not taught.

    e) One cannot import 'Koran' published in Arabic


    f) According to data published by Japanese government,

    it has given temporary residency to only 2 lakhs

    Muslims, who need to follow the Japanese Law

    of the Land. These Muslims should speak Japanese

    and carry their religious rituals in their homes.

    g) Japan is the only country in the world that has a

    negligible number of embassies of Islamic countries.

    h) Japanese people are not attracted to Islam at all.

    i) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of

    foreign companies.

    j) Even today visas are not granted to Muslim doctors,

    engineers or managers sent by foreign companies.

    k) In the majority of companies, it is stated in their

    regulations that no Muslims should apply for a job.

    l) The Japanese government is of the opinion that

    Muslims are fundamentalist and even in the era

    of globalization, they are not willing to change

    their Muslim laws.

    m) Muslims can not even think about getting a rented

    house in Japan .

    n) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a

    Muslim then the whole neighbourhood stays alert.

    o) No one can start an Islamic cell or Arabic 'Madarsa'

    in Japan

    p) There is no personal (Sharia) law in Japan .

    q) If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim then she is

    considered an outcast forever.

    r) According to Mr. Komico Yagi (Head of Department,

    Tokyo University ) "There is a mind frame in Japan

    that Islam is a very narrow minded religion and one

    should stay away from it."

    s) Freelance journalist Mohammed Juber toured many

    Islamic countries after 9/11 including Japan . He found

    that the Japanese were confident that extremists could

    do no harm in Japan.


    Now WE know...
