    Just Thoughts….

    The greatest happiness imaginable (which does not give you the money, sex, or love and sometimes that’s all about), is pleased to return to live with desire, the cessation of anguish, pangs chest, the anxiety that leaves you almost breathe, not wanting to die every day that passes, no waking up in the morning thinking another day to live and suffer, and that I do here?.

    Our languages ??are different but nustros sufferings, joys, annoyances, are exactly the same.
    According heard a few days ago and had read some time ago humans America, Asia, Oceania and Europe almost all come from the same mother who left Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago.

    We are similar beings anywhere, suffering rejoice, enjoy the same sensations.
    I’ve seen it in the cinema that comes from japan, china, korea, europe, or america.

    The idea of ??God or atheism, is common to all of us humans over thousands of years.

    I think at the end when we have no where to grab our thinking beyond the material, the known and goes back to God, a superior being who dominates everything and we think we can help, the only help to if that is your desire or will.

    Sounds like a joke if you do not have faith, I did not have much truth but my thoughts drifted towards that direction, and oh miracle few months after I was cured.

    Like Nikoloaus, I am a P.Member since seven years more or less, just from the moment I could see this was
    the best site in the web, together with Warren´s, to learn English.

    All this time I have been happy to be here, my site, my house, my Friends.

    Just today I think I am the old chap in the Blog?……may be.

    Thanks ESL team, Jeff Lucy Warren and all of you there in Los Angeles, California, but also thank you to
    all ESL friends thank could read this pages of the blog.

    This week promises to be exciting, I hope, as it has been all weeks. O can ever learn new things with ESLPOD and it makes me feel grateful to Jeff and Lucy. I also have found many new people like Nikolaus Benz, Myo ko ko and others. If they don’t know me yet, let me introduce myself as Aecio, that one who lives in Brazil, the most beautiful country in the world and is located below the equator line where there is no sins. Get it?

  6. Elvis Says:

    Hi, everyone,
    I recently bought a second generation Ipad mini with retina screen, and one thing Apple online store stuck out to me is that they provide us consumers with a laser engravings service for free,
    so I just took that advantage to carve two lines of tribute to ESLPOD, it’s said that

    Lucy&Jeff&Warren
    Love you guys forever!

  7. Elvis Says:

    I though I should have carved like this
    Lucy&Jeff&Warren&any other Eslpoders
    My bad, anyway.

  8. Tania Says:

    Hi! I can’t forget Emiliano’s birthday, November 29.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, our dear Emiliano.

    Best wishes,

    Tania

  9. Tania Says:

    Hi! It was the Black Friday. We now call it “Black Friday”, too.
    Unfortunately I did not buy anything.

    I have many, many problems in my family and at my job, too.
    Hoping to solve my job problems I’ll be more calm, more…I’ll be back soon among our dear blog friends.

  10. Tania Says:

    Hi! I saw the movie “Hello, Dolly!”, many years ago.
    It’s a well-known song in my country, too.
    I know to sing it, too.

    “Hello, Dolly
    Well Hello, Dolly,
    It’s so nice to have you back where you belong
    ………………………………………………………….
    Promise you’ll never go away again.

    I went away from the lights of fourteenth street
    And into my personal haze
    But now that I’m back in the lights of the ESLPODCAST
    Tomorrow will be brighter than the good old days.”

  11. Myo ko ko Says:

    Good work you have done, my buddy, Elvis.

    Hi Emiliano, another merry new years are waiting ahead of you!
