Hi Everyone,

As you have noticed, I have changed the BrainyZine from text format 
to HTML format. Obviously, you will find that HTML format is more user friendly and looks better. My only worry is that some of you out there may not be able to read HTML format email. If so, please let me know. I hope you like the new format.

By the way, I have this very old chain letter that I'd like to share with you. Be sure to read it, print it and live by it in life -- especially when it comes to raising kids.

First Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts

Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies, needed to combat the illness.

The doctor explained the situation to her little brother and asked the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes, I'll do it if it will save her."

As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheek. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I Start to die right away?"

Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to save her. Yet he was willing.

Second Important Lesson - Always remember those who serve

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.

"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked. "Fifty cents," replied the waitress. The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins in it. "Well how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.

By now more people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing impatient. "Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied. The little boy again counted his coins. "I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left. When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels and five pennies. You see, he couldn't have the sundae because he wanted to leave behind the two nickels and five pennies for her.


There you go. Hope you've enjoyed it.

Happy Halloween!

I received an email from a BrainyZine's reader requested me to publish articles on vaccination and it's link to autism and ADHD, etc. So, I did some research on the Internet and managed to find few articles in these areas. I was surprised to find so many "insider secrets" on vaccination! Did you know that there were risks associated with immunizations? If you are just like me don't know about it, then I think YOU should take a look at such issues.

Mouse Study Suggests Too Much Running Can Dull the Brain ~
ABCNews.com (Oct 9, 2003)

Exercise may improve our brains as well as our bodies, but 
it's possible to get too much of a good thing. Those characters 
who become so addicted to exercise that they don't seem to know 
how to stop may actually be impairing their brain's ability to 
learn new tasks.
