Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes
blossoming, the warm air of May evenings, human gladness in
a world that is renewing itself -- all these things enter in.
Veneration of Mary has its place in this very particular
atmosphere, for she, the Virgin, shows us faith under its
youthful aspect, as God's new beginning in a world that has
grown old. In her we see the Christian life set forth as a youth-
fulness of the heart, as beauty and a waiting readiness for
what is to come."
February 11 is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. In fact it is the 150th anniversary of the first apparition in the small town southwest of France. We were so blessed to have been able to visit the place a couple of times between 2002 and 2003. You could sense the solemnity of the place even from hundreds of meters before seeing the grotto. Two of the best memories of the 2 trips were the opportunity to be able to be with our sets of parents on the 2 occasions, including that of Paparazzi being able to bathe in the healing waters from the spring just 90 days after his quadruple by-pass.
It is also the National foundation day of Japan.
It is also the day that we'll remember that Yahoo rejected the $ 44.6 Billion offer by Microsoft.

"We're just shut down," said Jesse Fowler, president of Tellus Group, an environmentally oriented Santa Ana construction firm.
The device took a rest from 4 PM to 7PM Canada time. During that time, people were still able to make phone calls.
So why email when you can call? Duh.
One thing we don't know, whether Bill Gates received from Yahoo the message on their non-interest on Microsoft's unsolicited $ 44.6BILLION offer via a Blackberry :)
