Watch Your Words

When you have nothing good to say about anything, something or someone it's better to keep your mouth shut..  Every word that comes from your mouth is deadly and can hurt a person deep enough to kill them..  If someone failed, uplift them..  If someone rejoiceth, rejoice with them.. Everything in life has failures and triumphs.. But everything that happens has God's own purpose and plan..  We may not know the reason but in time we will know.

ROBBIE WILLIAMS gives us some ear-CANDY with new album “TAKE THE CROWN”

After signing with Universal Music in October 2011, UK Music Hall of Fame’s Greatest Artist of the 90s, ROBBIE WILLIAMS , arrives with his forthcoming ninth studio album entitled “TAKE THE CROWN” , set for nationwide release on November 19, 2012 under MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) . The album takes flight by the lead single, "CANDY" , a brilliantly addictive classic pop song Robbie wrote with former Take That band mate, Gary Barlow. “It’s a summer song about a girl who thinks she’s great. And she might be, but she’s a bit nefarious with her ways. Some songs take an age to write and some songs just fall out of your mouth completely formed, and you don’t have to think about it. I don’t know why that fell out of my mouth and out of my brain at that particular time – it just did,” explains Robbie.    “TAKE THE CROWN” will also feature the original demo version of Take That's "Eight Letters", which is entirely performed by Robbie.

Digital photography Made Simple: Discover How To Get Excellent Photos

The term picture taking emanates from two Greek words that approximately translate to "drawing with light-weight". Digital photography doesn't just pull light-weight. It attracts men and women together. A terrific photo is a great way to promote experiences and make you feel far more attached to those in close proximity to you. Here are some tips on how to make all those photographs greater.  A good photography tip which can help you out would be to maintain your breathing prior to taking a photo. Holding your breath will enable you to require an obvious shot. If at all possible you should utilize a tripod but this easy technique will help prevent you from obtaining blurry photographs. Make use of the conditions. Overcast skies are perfect for black and white taking pictures, but in color taking pictures it might make hues seem washed out and bland. When the sky is clear, leverage the blue background and attempt to contain it inside your photos. In
