Lady in Red......for Zuzanna



For my dear friend ZuZanna, who put the idea of this song in my head

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes I have been blind
The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me, It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget, the way you look tonight

I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, It took my breath away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
There's nobody there, it's just you and me, It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget, the way you look tonight
I never will forget the way you look tonight

GENTLE WISHES













May the day be as good?
as the Lord wanted to be.
May you keep happiness?
and love in your heart.

May all your worries leave you?
and that you sleep well at night.
May you feel the presence?
of Angels around you?

May the sun shines upon you?
and love always surrounds you.
May you always have?
a good word from others?

May the kindness and care
returns to you in ten folds.
These are my wishes for you,
for every day, God bless you.

Local man creates anti-scam iPhone application

By Allison Salz ,Edmonton Sun
An Edmonton man has created an iPhone application that he hopes will help prevent people from falling victim to scams. Sorin Mihailovici says his app, Scam Detector, reveals in detail over 350 of the most common scams world-wide.
He says he wanted to create something that would help educate people about entering into deals with people who are looking to take advantage. “The advancement in technology makes it so easy to get sucked into a scam,” he said. “Every second day I get phone calls from telemarketers. I’m sure they’re nice people, but some are scams.”

Mihailovici says the idea for the app was spawned from his movie 419: The Nigerian Scam, which he created as a final project for the Motion Image program at Grant MacEwan in 2008. The film was a dramatization based on true events, after his close friend lost his life savings to the Nigerian Scam. Surprisingly, he says, the film took off and garnered more than a million views on his website. He says since the film’s launch, he’s gotten emails from people all over the world.

“With the advancement of technology, some of the emails were inquiring if there was an app to tell people about scams.” he said. Mihailovici says he is no computer expert and had no clue on how to build an application. It was hard, I bought seven or eight books and I started to teach myself, he says. He says he separated scams into nine categories, including auto, telephone, travel and Internet. Users can navigate the menu to learn about various scams or they can search key words to find information on a specific fraud.

The Pro version of the application, will cost users $1.99US -- but it will give them access to information on over 350 scams. A Lite version will also be available for free, but will list fewer descriptions. Mihailovici, who works as Community Liason for OMNI Television, says at this point he doesn’t have any plans for further applications. “I didn’t make it to be a millionaire,” he says. “But who knows, everything changes so fast. Maybe I could make another one, depending on the success of this one.” The application will be available in the Apple App Store Tuesday. Versions of the application for Android and the iPad are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
