  • @juaomaya Juao, so many ideas come to my mind and as you see lately I have uploaded more presentations than I wanted to. But comments like yours trigger my mind. I am thinking of writing not too soon a presentation on sentiments and their effect. Your two comments on this presentation kindled the idea. Thanks a lot, dear Juao

  • @hudali15 Almost always your shows mean a lot to me. Their significance covers a wide range of interests, running from the simple lawn care till the 'noblest' attitudes before life - such as seeing a cup half full, instead of half empty.

    Juao, I feel the personal connection between this show and you. Your late sister must have taught you a lot. Surely, she was a bag full of wisdom. May I suggest sharing some of her wisdom in respect for her memory? I also feel you favorited this show because it means a lot to you. Thanks Juao for your human touch

  • Dear Ali, as you properly explained it, from now on dentistry will have everything to do with the way I will 'manage' my life. Besides, slide 13 reminded of my dearest late sister. She told me once, beware of friends who keep saying only sweet things about you: they will be the first to betray you.
