ORANGE – If orange is your favorite fruit, it speaks of a person
who has enduring patience and willpower. You like to do things
slowly, but very thoroughly and are completely undaunted by hard work.
You tend to be shy, but are reliable and trustworthy friend. You have
an aesthetic bent of mind. You select your partner with care and
you love with all your heart, and not in for just a fling. You
avoid conflict at all costs.

APPLE – If apple is your favorite fruit, you are
an extravagant, impulsive and outspoken person, often with a bit of
a temper. While you may not be the best organizer yourself, you make
a good team leader and are good at taking things forward. You can take
quick action in most situations. You enjoy travel immensely.
You ooze with charm when you are with your partner. You have
an enthusiasm for life, unmatched by most.

BANANA – You are a softy! Loving, gentle, warm and sympathetic
by nature is the banana lover. You often lack in self-confidence and
are quite timid by nature. People often take advantage of your
sweet temper, and sheer vulnerability to a situation. You adore
your partner in every which way, both for their mental and
physical beauty! Because of the way you are, your relationship is
always very much in harmony!

COCONUT – The coconut lover is a serious, very thoughtful
and contemplative person. Though you enjoy
socializing, you are particular about the company you keep. You ten d
to be stubborn but not necessarily foolhardy. Shrewd, quick-witted
and alert, you ensure that you are right on top of any given scenario,
especially at work. You need a partner with brains, and while passion
is important it certainly isn’t everything for you.

PINEAPPLE – You are quick to decide and even quicker to act. You
are brave in a sking career changes, if that is what is to your
advantage. You have exceptional organizing abilities and are undaunted
by the size of the task at hand. You tend to be self reliant, sincere
and honest in your dealings with others. Though you are
not given to making friends very quickly, but once you do, it
is for life. Your partner is often impressed with your
sterling qualities but disappointed in your ability to show affection.

PAPAYA – You are truly fearless and take much that happens in life
in your stride. You give considerable thought to things you do. You
have a sense of humor that, along with your generous nature, keeps you
in most people’s good books. You are a go-getter in
your professional life, and have a knack for bein g in the right place
at the right time. You enjoy meeting new people and seeing new sights
whenever you can. Your sense of humor is what attracts members of the
opposite sex to you more than an y thing else. It is simply

MANGO – A mango lover is a personality to reckoned with; quite
often, you are a person who has quite fixed ideas, and influencing you
is not an easy task. You tend to be an extremist with strong likes
and dislikes, and at times even like to control a situation… You
enjoy getting involved in something that presents mental
challenge… Strong as you may be, you are like a kitten when you are
with your partner. You accommodate the love of your life, and make up
for all the strong will elsewhere!

CHERRY – If cherry is your favorite fruit, life isn’t always as
sweet for you. You often face ups and downs,
particularly professionally, and find that you make small sums of $$$,
instead of a l ump sum. You have a fertile imagination and are often
involved in creative pursuits. You are a very sincere and loyal
partner, but find that expressing your feelings is not very easy. Your
hom e is your haven, and you love nothing more than being surrounded by
close family and your beloved partner.

BLACK GRAPES – You are a polite person in general, but do have
quick flare-ups of temper that cool down just as quickly. You
enjoy beauty in all forms, including beautiful people. You are
very popular because of your warm, gregarious nature. You have a zest
for life; you enjoy everything you do, right from the way you
dress, to your style and your day-to-day life. Your partner must share
your zeal and zing for life to enjoy all you have to offer!

PEACH – Like a peach, you enjoy the juice of life and all its
lush ripeness! You are the friendly sort, and are quite frank
and outspoken, which adds to your charm. You are quick to forgive
and forget; and value your friendships highly. You have
an independent and ambitious streak in you that make you a
real go-getter. You are the ideal lover, fiery and passionate but
s incere and faithful in love. You don’t, however, like to display all
that passion in public.

CUSTARD APPLE – You are a modest and conservative person who can
be quite sensitive at times. You tend to be thoughtful and contemplative, and
therefore are rarely rash in doing things. You are quite ambitious and are good
at anything that requires much detailing or working with numbers. You are quick
at finding fault with others. While looking for a partner, you value a
person’s intellect far above their looks or good old passion. You are
quite shy and not very comfortable demonstrating affection.

PEAR – If you put your mind to something you can do it successfully,
but by and large you tend to be fickle and have trouble completing a task
with the enthusiasm you started it with. You need to know the results of your
efforts almost immediately. You enjoy mental stimulation and love to get into
a good discussion! You tend to be a restless and high-strung person, and
are easily excited… Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect! It means
you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections!

The last time we did this around here, the turnout wasn’t near 100%.

C’mon people!! We all have to do our part in this war on terror!!


*As you may already know, it is forbidden for a Muslim male to see

any woman other than his wife naked. He must commit suicide if

he does. So, next Saturday at 4 PM Eastern Time, all American

women are asked to walk out of their homes completely naked to

help weed out any neighborhood terrorists. Circling your block for

one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort.

*All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front

of their homes to prove they are not Muslims, and to demonstrate

they think it’s okay to see nude women other than their wife, and to

show support for all American women. Since Islam also does not

approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of

your anti-Muslim sentiment.

*The American government appreciates your efforts to root-out

terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.

God bless America!

*It is your patriotic duty to pass this on. If you don’t send this to at

least 5 people, you could be considered a threat to our national security!


Apparently, Benjamin Netanyahu gave an interview and was asked about Israel’s occupation of Arab lands — his response was ‘It’s our land.’
The reporter (I think it was CNN or the like) was stunned — read below

‘It’s our land…’

The following material was written by an American Christian professor.

It’s important information to know since we don’t get fair and accurate reporting from the medi a and facts tend to get lost in the jumble of daily events.

‘Crash Course on the Arab Israeli Conflict.’

Here are overlooked facts in the current Middle East situation.
These were compiled by a Christian university professor.


It takes just 1.5 minutes to read!!!!

It makes sense and it’s not slanted. Jew and non-Jew — it doesn’t matter. Thank You.

1. Nationhood and Jerusalem. Israel became a nation in 1312 B.C.E.
Two thousand years before the rise of Islam.

2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a
Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of
the modern State of Israel.

3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 B.C.E., the Jews have had
&n bsp;dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous
presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 C.E. lasted no
more than 22 years.

5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital.
Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity.
Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought
to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy
Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.

7. King Da vid founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came
to Jerusalem.

8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward

9. Arab and Jewish Refugees: In 1948 the Arab refugees were
encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge
the land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left without ever seeing an
&nbs p; Israeli soldier.

10 The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to
Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms.

11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is
estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees
from Arab lands is estimated to be the same.

12. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated
into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab
territory. Out of th e 100,000,000 refugees since World War II,
theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been
absorbed or integrated into their own peoples’ lands. &n bsp;Jewish
refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no
larger than the state of New Jersey.

13. The Arab – Israeli Conflict: The Arabs are represented by eight
separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one
Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost.
Israel defended itself each time and won.

14. The P.L.O.’s Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of
Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank
land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied

15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the
Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.

16. The U.N. Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security
Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed
against Israel.

17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990,
429 were directed against Israel.

18. The U.N was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed
by the Jordanians.

19. The U.N. was silent while the Jordanians systematically
desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.

20. The U.N. was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-
like a policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount
and the Western Wall.

These are incredible times. We have to ask what our role should be.
What will we tell our grandchildren we did when there was a turning
point in Jewish destiny, an opportunity to make a difference?

START NOW- Send this to 20 other people you know and ask them to send it to twenty others, Jew and non-Jew–it doesn’t really matter.

Wal-Mart warning managers of labor bill, NEW YORK (Reuters) – Wal-Mart Stores Inc said on Friday it has held meetings with U.S. store managers warning them of issues that could arise if Democrats win power and pass a law that would make it easier for workers to unionize (August 1, 2008 at 10:22 a.m.)


Have you ever encountered a gift that was adorned with such beautiful
wrapping that it was almost too pretty to open? Its paper and bow were
wrapped to perfection resembling that of a work of art. Well, imagine
if the gift was left wrapped in tact and unopened. Eventually the
exquisitely wrapped package would become faded, tattered and frayed
from exposure and it would therefore lose its appeal and still the true
gift would remain unknown. . .
Please forward to your sister friends, family, sisters in Christ and
colleagues.. . .
