Warren Buffet's Take on Success

There was a one hour interview on CNBC with Warren Buffet, the second

richest man who has donated $31 billion to charity. Here are some very

interesting aspects of his life:

1. He bought his first share at age 11 and he now regrets that he started too late!

2. He bought a small farm at age 14 with savings from delivering newspapers.

3. He still lives in the same small 3-bedroom house in mid-town Omaha,

which he bought after he got married 50 years ago. He says that he has

everything he needs in that house. His house does not have a wall or a fence.

4. He drives his own car everywhere and does not have a driver or security people around him.

5. He never travels by private jet, although he owns the world's largest private jet company.

6. His company, Berkshire Hathaway, owns 63 companies.

He writes only one letter each year to the CEOs of these companies, giving them goals

for the year. He never holds meetings or calls them on a regular basis.

He has given his CEO's only two rules. Rule number 1: do not lose any

of your share holder's money. Rule number 2: Do not forget rule number 1.

7. He does not socialize with the high society crowd. His past time

after he gets home is to make himself some pop corn and watch Television.

8. Bill Gates, the world's richest man met him for the first time only

5 years ago. Bill Gates did not think he had anything in common with

Warren Buffet. So he had scheduled his meeting only for half hour. But 

when Gates met him, the meeting lasted for ten hours and Bill Gates

became a devotee of Warren Buffet.

9. Warren Buffet does not carry a cell phone, nor has a computer on his desk.

His advice to young people: "Stay away from credit cards and invest in yourself and


A. Money doesn't create man but it is the man who created money.

B. Live your life as simple as you are.

C. Don't do what others say, just listen them, but do what you feel good.

D. Don't go on brand name; just wear those things in which u feel comfortable.

E. Don't waste your money on unnecessary things; just spend on them who really in need rather.

F. After all it's your life then why gives chance to others to rule our life."

You'e Never Alone

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Coconut water Information complied by John Kohler

English name coconut, first mentioned in English print in 1555, comes
from Spanish and Portugese word coco, which means 'monkey face.'
Spanish and Portugese explorers found a resemblance to a monkey's face
in the three round indented markings or 'eyes' found at the base of the

On the Nicobar Islands of the Indian Ocean, whole coconuts
were used as currency for the purchase of goods until the early part of
the twentieth century.

Coconuts are the fruit of the coconut
palm, botanically known as cocos nucifera, with nucifera meaning
'nut-bearing.' The fruit-bearing palms are native to Malaysia,
Polynesia and southern Asia, and are now also prolific in South
America, India , the Pacific Islands , Hawaii and Florida. The light,
fibrous husk allowed it to easily drift on the oceans to other areas to

propagate. In Sanskrit, the coconut palm is known as kalpa
vriksha, meaning 'tree which gives all that is necessary for living,'
since nearly all parts of the tree can be used in some

manner or another.

The coconut itself has many food uses, including milk, meat, sugar
and oil as well as functioning as its own dish and cup. The husk was
also burned for fuel by natives, but today a seed fibre called coir is
taken from the husk and used to make brushes, mats, fishnets, and rope.
A very potent fermented toddy or drink is also made from the coconut
palm's sap. Coconut oil, a saturated fat made from dried coconut meat,
is used for commercial frying and in candies and margarines, as well as
in non-edible products such as soaps and cosmetics.

Although it takes up to a year for coconuts to mature, the
trees bloom up to thirteen times a year, so fruit is constantly forming
yielding a continuous harvest year-round. An average harvest from one
tree runs about 60 coconuts, with some trees yielding three times that

The coconut's name is a bit of a misnomer, since it is
botanically classified as a drupe and not a nut. It is the largest seed
known. If you've ever opened a fresh coconut, you will have

seen the
thin, opaque almost clear coconut juice or water which has a slight
almond flavor. Contrary to popular belief, this is not the coconut
milk. However, the water is consumed as a drink fresh from the coconut
by many, and it can also be used in recipes.

Here is some information about Coconut Water:

a natural isotonic beverage, with the same level of electrolytic
balance as we have in our blood. It's the fluid of life, so to speak.'
In fact, during the Pacific War of 1941-45, both sides in the conflict
regularly used coconut water - siphoned directly from the nut - to give
emergency plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers. Most coconut water
is still consumed fresh in tropical coastal areas - once exposed to
air, the liquid rapidly loses most of its organoleptic and nutritional
characteristics, and begins to ferment.

  • Coconut Water is More Nutritious than whole milk - Less fat and NO cholesterol!
  • Coconut Water is More Healthy than Orange Juice - Much lower calories
  • Coconut Water is Better than processed baby milk- It contains lauric acid, which is present in human mother's milk
  • Coconut water is naturally sterile -- Water permeates though the filtering husk!
  • Coconut water is a universal donor-- Its identical to human blood plasma
  • Coconut Water is a Natural Isotonic Beverage - The same level we have in our blood.
  • Coconut water has saved lives in 3rd world countries thru Coconut IV.
water is the very stuff of Nature, biologically Pure, full of Natural
Sugars, Salts, and Vitamins to ward off fatigue... and is the next wave
of energy drinks BUT natural!', according to Mortin Satin, Chief of the
United Nation's Food & Agriculture Organization. Coconut water
contains more potassium (at about 294 mg) than most sports drinks (117
mg) and most energy drinks. Coconut water has less sodium (25mg) where
sports drinks have around 41mg and energy drinks have about 200 mg!
Coconut water has 5mg of Natural Sugars where sports and energy drinks
range from 10-25mg of Altered Sugars. Coconut water is very high in
Chloride at 118mg, compared to sports drinks at about 39mg.

(Data is based on a 100ml drink.).

Have you tried the new browser, Flock?

I just tried it today and it looks just like Firefox but it doesnt consume as much memory as Firefox does on my WinXP SP2. And it integrates very well with Flickr. So far, so good!

Joke: Nuclear Power & Shit

A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when the stranger turned to her and said, 'Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.'

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger, 'What would you like to talk about?'

'Oh, I don't know', said the stranger. 'How about nuclear power?'

'OK', she said. 'That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow and a deer all eat grass - the same stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?'

The stranger thinks about it and says, 'Hmmm, I have no idea.'

To which the little girl replies, 'Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know shit?'

Ten ways to murder creativity, leadership, growth and development, innovation and motivation

Again not a story, instead a sardonic view of the way that organizations typically approach managing people and projects, which of course kills the creative incentive and capabilities of creative people. Do you recognize the model?

1. Always pretend to know more than everybody around you.

2. Get employees to fill in time sheets.

3. Run daily checks on progress of everyone's work.

4. Ensure that highly qualified people do mundane work for long periods.

5. Put barriers up between departments.

6. Don't speak personally to employees, except when announcing increased targets, shortened deadlines and tightened cost restraints.

7. Ask for a 200-page document to justify every new idea.

8. Call lots of meetings.

9. Place the biggest emphasis on the budget.

10. Buy lots of computers or not buying at all.
