Writer's Block: Oh no not I
grandpa1948
When was the first time that you stood up for yourself? Were your actions justifiable? Looking back, would you have done anything differently?

Standing up for myself? I always do that when i know that i am right, but of course, when i am proven wrong, i also admit my mistakes. (especially when i have an argument with the wife, of course, she always win) hahaha, so there, but, yes, of course, when standing up for yourself, you have to face the consequences of your actions. Whatever happens, when you believe in something and you know that you are right, better fight for that belief and if proven wrong, be ready to put down the sword and say sorry and listen up. i have never regretted the things and situations where i stood for myself and if i would be given the chance to do them again, i won't change whatever i have done. i ended up with my wife and my current life because of what i have done before so i am now happy with what i have. i don't want that to be changed.

Writer's Block: Supersize me

Have you ever boycotted a company or product? If so, what was it, and what caused you to boycott it?

There were a lot of times that i was tempted to do that but then again, i had to think that "what if other nations would also do that against us?" how would you feel about it? so, i really try not to get there. i even taught my children not to do that against other nations. i believe in unity and one little step that we can do towards that goal is not to create any kind of wall between us and the world. hmm... if i were not this old, probably would run for presidency hahaha but seriously, i think we really should.. i am a business owner myself and i would not want other nations' people to boycott my company if ever..

Writer's Block: Casting couch

If your life was made into a movie, who would you want to play the leading role? What about the other major characters in your life?

Haha! Personally love the movies "forever young" and "sleepless in seattle." that is because i believe that my life is quite similar to them especially about the romantic part... how i remember all those hard times with my relationship.. life is really challenging. there is this quotation "half of knowing what you want is knowing what you have to give up before you get it." really quite a quote there and i can say it is true. before you get to operate this program, you would have to learn how to work it first. before you learn how to run, you have to make your first step first. and before you love something, sometimes you have to lose it first. for me, i would want christopher reeves to play my part of the movie, my older self, and my younger self, i would want the star who played superman in smallville. my wife always call me her superman and i usually tease her as my cryptonite. so they would be perfect.

Writer's Block: Star struck

Do you think celebrities deserve as much recognition, attention, and money as we, as a society, give them? What do you think it says about our cultural values?

Ok, as far as i am concerned, i think i don't need to think much about what those celebrities are getting paid.. I have my business to run and thinking about their pay will not make me any richer... Ok, i may be a bit selfish on my answer but seriously, i seem to not mind at all... as long as my business program runs well and my business gets money then i and my wife will be happy as we are already on our own now...

Writer's Block: What I'm Reading This Summer.
grandpa1948
Which summer read will be in your beach bag?

Going to the beach... wow, reminds me of those romantic nights i had with my wife.. especially when we were just in a boyfriend and girlfriend relationship. Now, that we run our business, we seem to have lost time to enjoy ourselves in holiday vacations. Well, we did manage to have lots of time for ourselves. Now, we again have those times as our children have already gone on their own... All company we have now would be us, our business, and our programs that help us run our business. There you go, as they say, ramblings of an old man. haha I don't think so.

Writer's Block: $10,000 and Some Change
grandpa1948
How would you change the world with $10,000?

10000 dollars, hmm.. back to my time, that would be well much and enough to start a good business but as of now, with the economy going down, the value of money is also down. These days, having 10000 dollars is not enough to start a decent business. ok, for the question, if i had 10000 dollars to spare, i would start off with fixing my business more. It is not on being selfish but if i can get more from my side, then i can give more in return. sometimes, helping others starts with helping yourself more. that is how i would change the world by changing my world first and then after that set a quest to start helping in different small ways. they say that great things start somewhere small. there you have my answer.

Writer's Block: I scare myself
grandpa1948
What is your greatest fear?

What am i scared most? Hmm... this is quite a tough one. Everybody i think is scared of death and the things that come to an end. This is i think a universal truth as endings are usually painful. Most importantly in relationships. I used to be scared about my wife leaving me.. but the times we have spend together already proves that we will always be together. Then i used to be scared of death but that is inevitable and we all have to accept that sooner or later we will all go there so it is just a matter of how we live our lives whether we make it good or not and as of now.. i live my life for my wife and everything is fine. Lately, i have ventured into business and i am a bit scared of failing but then again, i found this business software that i am using and has proven me that with it, i can manage my business well and that i can succeed, especially with my wife on my side and all her love and support. That's it for me in my age.

Writer's Block: No place like home
grandpa1948
What are five things you love about where you live and five things that you hate? How does it compare to previous places you've lived?

Well now.. hmm.. this question got me thinking.. honestly i haven't thought much about this kind of thing but yes, it sure is proper to think and say thanks to what we have got in our lives and treasure the things we have... so now, i think there are a couple of reasons why i like my home now... the first and most important is that it is where i stayed with my loving wife and built our family... the next reason is not exactly my house but because of our place, there was a need that i thought would work to my advantage so i built a small business here too... i get a lot of help from my wife and also from our neighbors. they gave me a lot of advices and now i have a good business up and running and my wife and i don't need to worry much on financial trouble especially since the kids have grown and are living their own lives now.. my business software helps me and my wife run our business with ease. those are my reasons..

If you could present any award at the MTV Movie Awards, which one would you want to present? Which celeb would you want up on stage with you?

Ok, i think this should be easy. let's me see now... if i had to award an mtv movie award, it would be for best romantic movie ever.. well, being my age, i really can not find anything more romantic than my favorite movie... "Forever Young" with mel gibson... as for my company, i think i would want to be with one of my crushes before.. Meg Ryan. haha ooppss better post this.. don't want my wife seeing it.. haha, no, just kidding.. she knows actually.. that is my favorite movie because i can really relate our love story with that.. hmm... those were the days...

Writer's Block: The tenth time's the charm
grandpa1948
What movie have you seen the most times in your life? How many times have you seen it? Will you ever grow tired of it?


movies oh movies, yeah, movies really do bring you somewhere. it is really fun to reminisce those times and watch your movies again and again. the sad thing there is even discs get worn down. that is why i love my new software now because it allows me to burn multiple copies of my favorite movies. try it out you guys. it works very good for me.
