    My Family's Personal Testimony

    "When work is a pleasure, life is a joy! When work is a duty, life is slavery." -Ghandi

    "There is no joy in luxury without joy in work." -Thomas Equinas (Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work)

    Dear Lord,

    Every single evening
    As I'm lying here in bed,
    This tiny little Prayer
    Keeps running through my head.

    God bless all my family
    Wherever they may be,
    Keep them warm and safe from harm
    For they're so close to me.

    And God, there is one more thing
    I wish that you could do,
    Hope you don't mind me asking
    Please bless my computer too..

    Now I know that it's unusual
    To Bless a motherboard,
    But listen just a second
    While I explain it to you, Lord.

    You see that little metal box
    Holds more than odds and ends,
    Inside those small compartments
    Rest so many of my friends..

    I know so much about them
    By the kindness that they give,
    And this little scrap of metal
    Takes me in to where they live.

    By faith is how I know them
    Much the same as you,
    We share in what life brings us
    And from that our friendships grew.

    Please take an extra minute
    From your duties up above,
    To bless those in my address book
    That's filled with so much love.

    Wherever else this prayer may reach
    To each and every friend,
    Bless each e-mail inbox
    And each person who hits send.

    When you update your Heavenly list
    On your own CD-ROM,
    Bless everyone who says this prayer
    Sent up to GOD.com.

    AMEN

  • Rafael Monteagudo, from allaboutjazz.com

  • "Rafael Monteagudo (Drummer/Percussionist) arrived in the US in 2000 from Havana, Cuba. His areas of focus include jazz, funk, fusion, Latin Jazz, and Afro-Cuban. He plays drumset, timbales, congas, bata, and bongos. It was the thriving musical environment that he came from that inspired him to play drums at the young age of eight. He grew up in Cayo Hueso, a neighborhood in Havana that has produced some of the most famous Cuban musicians. The musical traditions in Cayo Hueso are rich in both popular and folkloric music. It was through sharing the strong African traditions that are inherent in Cuban culture that Rafael gained such a wide range of styles."

    Poet

  • Juan De Mendoza Monteagudo

The verse chronicle he composed, Las Guerras de Chile (1610), has been edited by J Medina (Santiago de Chile, 1888). As poetry it is negligible, but it provides a valuable picture of Chilean life and society at the turn of the 17th-c. Its 8000 lines are divided into 11 cantos."
