The concert in Jerash

Yesterday we went to Jerash to attend the Palestine Youth Orchestra concert to watch hind playing her trumpet. No words can explain how I felt; it was amazing to hear the sound of music rise in between the stones of Jerash. There were a huge number of people present more than I ever expected and even the players were a good number more than 25 I guess. I was looking from where I was sitting at them where no microphones available and there were barely a small light beside each player for him to be able to read his notes it was amazing. Amazing how thousands of years ago the Romans were capable of building such place that not even one microphone is need and the sound was beautifully reaching every one of the audience.

I also was happy to meet Sinan ,who came especially to Jordan for one day to watch hind playing her trumpet. He is a great person, I really respect him and I thank blogging for giving me the chance to get introduced to this great personality. I finally thank hindo, you were great girl, enjoy your cyprus trip and I wish you the best of luck in your music career cause you are talented.

Dedicated to Hind and sinan :)

Note to self

Importance of having Breakfast:

Breakfast can help prevent strokes, heart attack and sudden death.

For those who always skip breakfast, you should start kicking that habit now!!
You've heard many times that "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." Now, recent research confirms that one of the worst practices you can develop may be avoiding breakfast.

Because the frequency of heart attack, sudden death, and stroke peaks between 6:00a.m. and noon, with the highest incidence being between 8: 00a.m. and 10:00a.m.What mechanism within the body could account for this significant jump in sudden death in the early morning hours?

The answer is:
Platelet, tiny elements in the blood that keep us from bleeding to Death if we get a cut, can clump together inside our arteries due to cholesterol or laque buildup in the artery lining. It is in the morning hours that platelets become the most activated and tend to form these internal blood clots at the greatest frequency.

However, eating even a very light breakfast prevents the morning platelet activation that is associated with heart attacks and strokes .

Studies performed at Memorial University in St.Johns, Newfoundland found that eating a light, very low-fat breakfast was critical in modifying the morning platelet activation. Subjects in the study consumed either low-fat or fat-free yogurt, orange juice, fruit, and a source of protein coming from yogurt or fat-free milk.

So if you skip breakfast, it's important that you change this practice immediately in light of this research.Develop a simple plan to eat cereal, such as oatmeal or Bran Flakes ,along with six ounces of grape juice or orange juice , and perhaps a piece of fruit .

This simple plan will keep your platelets from sticking together, keep blood clots from forming, and perhaps head off a potential heart attack or stroke.
So never ever skip breakfast

I am done with people asking me " Why are you losing weight?"
So from tomorrow i will EAT EAT EAT, till i am no longer a shadow of what was once a lady :P

Medicine and money

I've been sick for a month now with influenza nothing serious but I am starting to lose my voice. All that cause I am forgetting to tell dad to get me some medicine. At the end, which is today, I went to the pharmacy to get medicine cause I am in real pain now and I am afraid that if I stay like this my voice will end up mute. I entered to the pharmacy,
Me: I need "Augmentin" medicine please.
Dr:What dose do you need.
Me : I donno.
Dr: Ok here it is. 19.5 Jd's please.
I was shocked from the price,but didn't utter a word but thank you paid and left.
I called dad ,Who is a Dr.
Me: Dad how much does "Augmentin" cost?
Dad:8.5 JD's
Me: But I just paid 19.5????
Dad:Tell them to give you the lower dose, You don't need that high dose?
I went back inside and changed the medicine.

I just never thought that medicine would cost this much. Its not about me I know I can afford to pay this much of money but what about other people???? Can everyone pay this amount of money and its just a flu? What if I had a serious sickness? How much would I pay? Would other people sell their shelter to buy medicine ? I really was shocked today , I always knew that medicine is not cheap but I never understood why? It really bothered me to know that some people are dying cause they don't have money to pay for medicine? Would they survive if they have the money?

I just have one word to say " Please God help those people "

Between Sanity and Insanity

1. There are two times when a man doesn't understand a woman. Before marriage and after marriage, but the question is does he understand that?

2. Never believe in 'love at first sight'. It's always best to take a second look. Isn't it??

3. Regular naps prevent old age... especially if you take them while driving :P

4. Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and the other is the husband!?

5. I believe we should all pay our tax with a smile. I tried - but they wanted cash. how mean? :P

6. Don't feel bad. A lot of people have no talent. Unless you call sleeping a talent so you better sleep or you dont have any talents at all :p

7. Don't marry the person you want to live with, marry the one you cannot live without... but whatever you do, you'll regret it later or maybe you will just live with it ! i cant help but wondering which one is better :P

8. You can't buy love . . . but you pay heavily for it, even master cards can't afford it :P

9. Forgiveness is giving up my right to hate you for hurting me. I wonder if your in my place what would you do?

10. Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

11. Marriage is give and take. You'd better give it to her or she'll take it anyway.

12. My husband and I will always compromise. He admit He's wrong and i will always agree. Ya it is fair :P

13. Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others.

14. A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person :) atleast I believe it may work!

15. You're getting old when you enjoy remembering things more than doing them.

16. Real friends are the ones who survive transitions between address books.

17. Saving is the best thing. Especially when your parents have done it for you.

18. They call our language the mother tongue because the father seldom gets to speak!

19. Common sense is good to have, but never let it master you for then it might deprive you of the foolish things it's fun to do.

20. Marriage and love are purely matter of chemistry. That is why the wife treats her husband like toxic waste...

21. Have you ever saw a person that doesnt like bread much ?? ya ITS ME :p I wonder how sane is that ! what make it worse

22. The hardest words to say are those meaningful . You know what are they?
I Love you, Sorry and will you help me please ? So i just try my best to mean them?
or maybe it's just me ???

I wonder how sane i am :) or is it as once my friend told me "YOUR SANE IN AN INSANE WAY" I wonder????!!!
