The Altitude of Your Attitude


An ATTITUDE can be defined as…

A positive or negative evaluation of people, objects, event, activities, ideas,

or

just about anything in your environment.

(Wikipedia)

Attitude 1 - 21-1-2013

Humans evaluate the acceptability of behavior using social norms and regulate behavior by means of social control.

According to moral values, human behavior may also depend upon the common, usual, unusual, acceptable or unacceptable behavior of others. 

(Wikipedia)

Attitude 2 - 21-1-2013

It is time for some numbers crunching, my dear lovely souls out there reading this post 😀

If A=1, B=2, C=3 and so on…

Match the number equivalent to each letter that forms the word ‘Attitude’ and sum them up.

You will be able to understand why our attitude is playing such an important role in our life.

******

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” 
~ Zig Ziglar

******

Do drop us a comment and tell us the altitude of your attitude (after doing the summing).

Have fun doing the numbers crunching and have a great day ahead!

Till then,

Cheers and TTFN~

The Reason Behind Your Smile + Your Favourite Christmas Song Part 7


CNC-SN001-HOW-MUCH-IS-THAT-DOGGIE

Allow me to be the reason behind your smile ~ unknown

CUTENESS is usually characterized by some combination of infant-like physical traits, especially small body size with a disproportionately large head, large eyes, a pleasantly fair, though not necessarily small nose, dimples, and round and softer body features.

I Luv Puppy

Konrad Lorenz argued in 1949 that infantile features triggered nurturing responses in adults and that this was an evolutionary adaptation which helped ensure that adults cared for their children, ultimately securing the survival of the species.ID-10079461

As evidence, Lorenz noted that humans react more positively to animals that resemble infants—with big eyes, big heads, shortened noses, etc.—than to animals that do not.

ID-10094614

The gender of a person can determine their perception of the difference in cuteness.

In a study by Spengelmeyer et al.(2009) it suggests that women were more sensitive to small differences in cuteness than the same aged men.

This suggests that reproductive hormones in women are important for determining cuteness.

ID-10079054

The widely perceived cuteness of domesticated animals, such as dogs and cats, may be due to the fact that humans selectively breed their pets for infant-like characteristics, including non-aggressive behavior and childlike appearance.

Studies have also shown that responses to cuteness—and to facial attractiveness in general—seem to be similar across and within cultures.

The phenomenon is not restricted to humans. The young of many mammal and bird species share a similar set of typical physical proportions, beyond absolute body size, that distinguish them from adults of their own species.

ID-10027293

In the recent finding of a juvenile Triceratops skull, one journalist suggested its features, which included “a shortened face and big eyes”, were “probably as cute as a button – at least to its mother”.

Read more at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuteness

The word cute is pronounced as ‘ke ai’ (可爱) in Mandarin.

Sadly, there was a period of time when people had misused these two words by calling females ‘ke ai’ but actually meant ‘ke lian mei ren ai‘  (怜没人爱 – You are pitiful because nobody loves you).

怜 (ke lian) – pitiful

没人 (mei ren) – nobody

 (ai) – Love

Fortunately I’ve not been hearing this cruel joke nowadays, so GOOD RIDDANCE!!!

Now, for the ‘Your Favourite Christmas Song‘ section, we’ve another lovely soul, Tessa William, who has the same  favourite Christmas song as Findthedetails (posted in Part 5 ) —  Fairy Tale of New York.  

Since the first song was actually a video provided by the lovely soul him/herself, I will have another YouTube video, in this case, the link, dedicated specially for Tessa as the video just wouldn’t appear in this post… 😦

Fairytale of New York – Ronan Keating and Moya Brennan

Hope you all enjoy this post.

Be Beautiful…Always!


26072013 - A Flower Will Always Be Beautiful...

The above two flowers — from some previous arrangements — were brought back by Lovable Mum while she was changing new flowers at one of our H.Q.s for some new occasions.

She would never waste a flower in her arrangement and thus these two flowers were being ‘recycled’ by her,  along with some other flowers so that they can be further admired by her lovable children (i.e. Bro, Baby Sis and Yours Truly…LOL).

Though I have no talent in flower arrangement, I am being blessed and motivated by many lovely souls out there and I am glad to be able to come out with the following creations which are now available at our online shop:

CNC-BL029 - FLOWER IN THE TWIST

CNC-SN030 - FLOWER ON A HOOK

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched

They must be felt with the heart

How Much Is That Poodle On The Table? The Answer Is Priceless.


Dogs have lived and worked, in addition to their roles as companions to humans, earned them the unique nickname, “MAN’S BEST FRIEND”.

A Dog - 8-2-2013

Have you ever wonder where the old saying, “A man’s best friend is his dog, came from?

In 1821, a US newspaper appeared in print in The New-York Literary Journal, Volume 4:

The faithful dog – why should I strive 

To speak his merits, while they live 

In every breast, and man’s best friend 

Does often at his heels attend.

In 1870, a farmer in Warrensburg, Missouri by the name of Charles Burden, whose favorite hound, Old Drum, was shot by a neighbor & brother-in-law, Leonidas Hornsby. 

Hornsby had sworn to shoot the first sheep-killing dog that came onto his land and carried out his threat when one night a dog was found prowling in his yard.

That dog was Old Drum.

Man's best friend

A statue of Old Drum, as the deceased beast was called, stands outside the town’s courtroom.

Picture extracted from:  www.phrases.org.uk

Senator George Graham Vest won a court battle and the hearts of dog lovers everywhere when he paid his famous tribute – The Eulogy to The Dog –  to Old Drum in his closing argument during this Burden vs. Hornsby court case in Warrensburg.

The award of $50 in damages to Burden for the loss of his favorite hunting dog was upheld.

While no record was kept of the last half of Vest’s tribute to a dog, the first portion has fortunately been preserved. It was this speech that originated the saying, “A man’s best friend is his dog.”

The Dog Eulogy - Part 1

First Part

The Dog Eulogy - Part 2

Second Part

Sadly for the Warrensburg Tourist Board,  Senator Vest didn’t originate the phrase, but he may have read it from the newspaper in 1821.

a big thank you to all the lovely souls who wanted to know what’s inside the wrapped gift.

Curiosity has an Alibi…


CNC-SN007 - GEM-TAILED KITTEN

“Curiosity killed the cat.”

This is a proverb used to warn of dangers of unnecessary investigations or experiments.

Everyone knows that, despite its supposed nine lives, curiosity killed the cat.

Well, not quite.

The earlier form was still in use in 1898, when it was defined in Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable:

“Care killed the Cat. It is said that a cat has nine lives, but care would wear them all out.”

By ‘care’ the coiner of the expression meant ‘worry/sorrow’ rather than our more usual contemporary ‘look after/provide for’ meaning.

The earliest printed reference to the original proverb is attributed to the British playwright Ben Jonson in his 1598 play, Every Man in His Humour, which was performed first by William Shakespeare.

In the 1902 edition of Proverbs: Maxims and Phrases, by John Hendricks Bechtel, the phrase “Curiosity killed the cat” is the lone entry under the topic “Curiosity” on page 100.

A cat’s angry soul: You murderer!!!

Curiosity:  I did not commit any murder…NASA can be my alibi…

My last posting was 22nd Sept and I am very sorry about the long absence. Was still busy with setting up our online store and time just slipped by without sounding any alarm…gosh… 😦

Will try to update more since I’ve managed to clear some of the more tedious tasks during this morning.

Till then, hope you enjoy this post…

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀
