Hi Behnam

Postby Kamelia » Sun Aug 11, 2013 10:19 am

Hi There,

I was so much worried last night about all this hreat-problem thing that I could not really sleep well. I was worried since I sent a messege and then I got no answer. So I thought what COULD HAVE happened and then I prayed all nights. Suddenly I remembered that why haven't I checked the forum yet?!!!!!! :!!:
Silly me thought with herself that if you hadn't written here then I could at least ask somebody if they got any news from you.

You cannot imagine how RELIEVED I was to know that you had written for Eid-e-Fetr. I am just reveling in my happiness now and I thank God for your health and safety.

Wish you a hundred years of happiness and health...

Hi there ,

He was a friend of mine ,he wished he had gained lots of money instantly ,but instead of hard work he was always in bed ,sleeping or watch movies at home. There were a lots of jobs for him, sometimes he engaged in a job ,but leaves it after a while ,because he wants to gain money with no pain .He was a whiner who always complain that despite of his efforts, he was not rewarded and luck had not favored him. He blamed all successful personnel as destiny favored them blah blah and blah!

Instead of hard work, he relied on instant success. He was a false follower of God and believed in Him with his own reason. He used to pray the God day-in and day-out as to make him rich by having him strike the first prize in the local lottery tickets.
Years went by but the man had never won a lottery. At last, he died.

His wife dreamt him that when he was taken to God, he complained to God, “I have remained a true disciple to you and I kept on praying you till my last breathe. All I wanted is to make me rich by making me win a lottery prize. You could not do this to me?”
The God replied, “I would have made you win one but you did not even buy a lottery ticket!”

Hi shahrubanu,

I don't find anything bad in my heart , I can say that his wife doesn't let him to sit behind his computer desk . of course it is her right ,she should be care about Behnam's health. Computer is the first factor for heart disease. But we expect Behnam to write a short message for his friends.

In fact I feel I am sinful, I think that I have bothered him many times and caused his high blood pressure. Sometimes he had a heavy heart because of my writing. But he always forgave me.
He is a devotee ,merciful ,generous , tolerant , humble ,helper , adviser ,good man. A man who everybody worries about his health.

Hi Shahrbanu,

I am runing over my memories with Behnam , I look at his picuture ,he is picking the fruits from tree in his garden , he put the kettel on the fire to make tea ,he is behind the wheel in his new car , he is sitting behind his computer desk beside his bed , he is laying downward on the floor and reading his book for PHD examination .

Thank you the you have joined to us , you can help the forum to talorate the Behnam 's absence for a while by your writting , of course no body can be in Behnam's place for me ,but you can help calm friends .

Our dearest friend Behnam :-D

How are you my beautiful friend.

Hope you are getting well.

We were worried about you.

When I read that you are sick I was worried about you and your family, frankly speaking I was worried about your family more. Because I always think about my family what they will do if I die what are they going to do after me. I'm always afraid of death not for me but for my family, because I believe that the person who dies will rest.

God bless you and your family :-D

Sorry to keep you worried!

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are fine. I am quite well; getting well gradually. I am happy that I have the chance to write to you again in my blue font. A nice friend of mine used to call me 'Behnam blue font', or in English it might be 'Blue-fonted Behnam', yes, this sounds better. :lol:

Thank you very much for posting many friendly posts, caring and having empathy. You are valuable. I love you very much.

As you know, I am making a recovery from a bypass operation. Thankfully, the operation was good. Although there is a lot of pain in different parts of my body, there is no side effects, such as fluid buildup around the heart and the lungs, blood clots on the leg that they have taken a vein out, etc. Actually, two days ago on Saturday, I visited the surgeon in his personal office. He examined me and wanted me to visit another doctor (on the same floor that his office was). The doctor checked the function of my heart by Echo and said the heart worked perfectly and there was no fluid in the lungs and heart itself.

I have to sleep only on my back. This really bothers me! I have a walk every evening. I rarely sit at my computer, because it makes my leg painful. By the way, I cannot concentrate on things. For example, writing this post is going to take me a lot of time, since I am making a lot of mistakes and my mind also doesn't serve me as it used to do. I cannot remember words and use my vocabulary properly.

I am given many pills. I checked the pills with dear Veronica. She really helped me with the information about the operation, the recovery duration, the function of tablets,...I don't know how to thank her for her great help. To be honest, I am proud of having her as a friend. I am also proud of myself to establish such a long friendship with some nice people. Today, I chatted with her again and I wanted her to send me an important pill that the doctor had strongly recommended that I take European-made instead of Iranian.

A story: There are many stories related to the hospital and nurses or other staff. To tell you the truth, I found the personnel of the hospital very friendly, responsible, and duty-oriented. They were carrying out their responsibilities like bees in hives! After the recovery, I will write a thank you letter to the manager of the hospital.

Anyway, when entering the operation room, I heard a lady and a man(I don't know they were doctors or assistants..) where practising English. The lady asked the man about the meaning of 'sleeping policeman' in Persian. The man didn't know the answer. The man asked the lady about the meaning of 'sleeping car' in return! They were preparing me for the operation. I started saying something in English, something like these, "I've got IELTS certificate, have been learning English for more than 20 years, working on TOEFL, TOLIMO...involved in English ...but I haven't heard such phrases yet. If you are learning English to make conversations with people, you should try to speak as simple as possible...you should use simple words. You don't need to learn such phrases." They shocked and many of them said, 'WOW'. Someone said in Farsi, "oh, this lady was killing us all the time by her English...good to say such things..." :lol:

The man said, "These phrases are necessary for educated people." I replied, "You think I am an uneducated person here lying on the hospital bed? If you mean those phrases are necessary for some professional people in an area, that's OK to practise them, but you will have little chance to use them in your everyday life.."

It was about 10:30am we were talking like that...I opened my eyes and wanted my glasses. Someone said, "Your glasses aren't here"! I wanted her to call my wife and ask her to bring my glasses...! I gave her the phone number...My wife brought the glasses, but it had been 10:00pm! My wife told me later!

In the ICU, whenever I opened my eyes, I saw a nurse sitting beside me and looking at me and controlling the monitor above my bed! They were like angels, bright-faced people...

Dear Mohsen, Shahrbanu, Amal, Elham, Moro, Veronica, ... thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. Sorry for keeping you worried and waiting!

All the best,
Behnam, 20 August, 2013

Dear Behnam,

All friends were worry about your health. you removed the grieving from the forum by writing your message . It is wonder that you were thinking about English even before going to surgery room.

I think you answer the angles in English when they ask some questions in the world of hereafter..!! :lol: :lol:

Beside consuming your medicine regularly ,you need tranquility and peace of mind for being recovered in soonest time.
You have two kids , they are tranquilizers of your soul when you embrace them and also your wife bring you the peace of mind.

B.Wishes ,
Mohsen

Fill not your heart with pain and sorrow,
but remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I've only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me
not as I am now, but as I use to be.

Because I will remember you all and look on with a smile,
Understand, in your hearts, I've only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope everything is going will with you.

I have new news for you, today I went to a gym with my neighbors, they are two sisters. They are fat so they have to lose some weight. Meanwhile, for me, the story was different!

A lot of people were surprised whenever I say that I am willing to go there and practice! :!!:
They think that I don't need sport because I am too thin and sport is just for fat people! :!!: :~:
In fact, they are right, I need to get weight not lose it! However, at the same time, I need a strong body too and just only sport can make me stronger so I am going to exercise for one month and see if something will change...

I love to challenge myself with new things always and love to be with different kind of people.

The day today was great, I tried some of the machines there and met the trainer. While training, I had a great feeling and felt that the life has come back to me again, my mind was clear and I was just enjoying myself. :-D {-;

I am very excited about the idea and I am sure that it will be a good and new experience inshallah. :-D

Please pray for me.

Hope you a nice day.
Amal

Hi Friends!

Postby behnam » Mon Aug 26, 2013 8:51 am

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are fully enjoying the last month of the summer. The summer is going and the autumn-my favourite season- is coming! I love autumns very much and you know the reasons. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear Mohsen, thank you very much for your kind words. I am quite well, getting well gradually. I have a one-hour walk every evening. My heart works well, but I have pain in my leg and chest! The wounds are dry, as if they have burned the skin! The wounds are not healed yet! They are dry but painful. They are not like ordinary wounds I've had! Next Tuesday, I am visiting the doctor. I will ask for some ointment or something like that to make the wounds wet and lessen the pain in my leg!

Dear Amal, it is very nice to read your posts. I am happy that you are doing regular exercise. It can be useful for your health. Dancing also helps! :lol: However, be careful with something! Your body shouldn't become rough as boxers' bodies! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear Shahrabanu, where are you my sister? I've missed you. I don't see you online these days. Have you forgotten your brother Behnam? Have you started teaching?

Dear Moroo, yes, I agree with you. I believe, before marriage a man should think about the probable events and danger of some consequences of marriage. Marriage gives people some interesting things, but those things also confer big responsibilities on them. When a man is married, his life isn't for himself. He is sharing the life with his wife! Before having children, the parents(the man in particular) must think deeply about the future of kids. The parental responsibilities are big! I'm not worried about my health. I do love death, but I am worried about kids and my wife. However, God is الرحمن الرحیم

Dear Veronica, I hope you are enjoying your time in your summerhouse.

Dear kami and Elham, many thanks for your kindness and care.

Dear Setayesh, thank you very much for the short messages(SMS).

Dear....Thank you all! :lol:

All the best,

Dear Shahrubanu

It is summer holidays ,and many people travel to the area which is much colder. I have some guests from Tehran and last night I took the guests to the slop of mountain in the country to have dinner. We were mountain until the midnight ,we were trembling from the cold ,I enjoy trembling in summer .
my dear friend ,you said that people who commit sin can't pray to God because their prays are not accepted by God ,so no body can pray ,because there is no one who have not committed sin in her /his life .

You are very busy ,but you need to have rest time to time ,you need a preplanned program for your job and you should not do your job without rest , Please read the following story
there was a group of men - a young hot-blooded, strong chap and a big number of old folks, doing timber job (Wood cutting) in a jungle.
This young chap is very hard working. He always continues to work through his break time and complains that those old folks were wasting time, taking break few times a day to drink and chat.
The first day, the young woodcutter brought fifteen (15) trees. "Congratulations," the boss said, "Carry on with your work!" Highly motivated by the words of his boss, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he only could bring ten (10) trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he was only able to bring seven (7) trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.
As times goes by, this young chap noticed that even though he worked through break time and hardly took a rest, those old folks are chopping the same amount of trees as he did and sometimes did more than he did. It was as if those old folks work through the break time as he did. So he decided to work harder the next day, unfortunately the results were even worse. "I must be losing my strength." The young woodcutter thought.
One day, one of the old folk invited him for a drink during their break time. That young chap refused and said he has no extra time to spend! Then the old man smiled to him and said it was just a waste of effort to keep chopping trees without re-sharpening your Axe. Sooner or later you will give up or be so exhausted as you have spent too much energy.
Suddenly the young chap realized that actually during break times while those old folks were having a chat, they were also re-sharpening their Axe at the same time! And that's how they can chop faster than him and yet spending lesser time! The old folk said what we need is efficiency by making use of our skill and ability intelligently. Only then can we have more times to do other things.
Otherwise you will always keep saying ... I have no time!

Hi All

Postby Kamelia » Wed Aug 28, 2013 7:26 pm

How are you? How is everything going on? So now that dear Behnam's doing fine and the mood has changed to a better softer one I am going to raise a question which I have been struggling with for some days.
I am trying to find the best way to teach the book 504 in class to intermediate and advanced level students.
what is my way? Well I read from the words aloud, I make them repeat and then I spot check them.Then I explain each word's meaning by trying to show them the action or make up an example or story so that they won't forget that. I even have them do the exercises and write paragraphs with the words included, but I'm not sure if I'm going on right. You know what? I want a very exciting way to make them all participate, each and every single one of them. In this way, they are engaged but not totally!

So I am asking you all, are there ways to be added to this way of teaching? Or are there whole new ways that I don't know of?

I'd be really glad to read your suggestions,

Thank you :-D

Dear Behnam,

That is my pleasure to hear that you are getting better. I hope that the ointment quieted the pain and medicine and exercise brought relief from the pain of your heart.

These days I have a heartache for the oppressed people of Syria ,now I am listening to David Cameron from BBC,the prime minster of UK . I think that every body in the world hate him, as he is similar to Satan. He is trying to convince the UK parliament for attacking to Syria. ( of course I get 50% of his speech ).
When the USA , UK and France and their allied couldn't capture the Syria by supporting their people (Terrorists ), They are playing a game to attack directly to Syria. The only problem they have is that Israel is in access of Syrian and Hezbollah missiles.

The policy of USA and UK are as well known as the village pump ( Like a white forehead cow) ,all people know about their policy , and it seems this policy is in the end of his life, because they may be caught in swamp of Syria.
But what I can say to the countries which are Syria's neighbor and help the USA and UK. Aren't they know that after Syria it is their turn. I remember the story of stupid Turtle and scorpion.

A Scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a Turtle to carry Him on his back across a river.
"Are you crazy?" exclaimed the Turtle.
"You'll sting me while I'm swimming and I'll drown."
"My dear Turtle," laughed the Scorpion, "if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now where is the logic in that?"
"You're right!" cried the Turtle. "Hop on!"
The Scorpion climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the Turtle a mighty sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the Turtle resignedly said:
"Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there'd be no logic in your stinging me. Then why did you do it?"
"It has nothing to do with logic," the drowning Scorpion sadly replied. "It's just my character."

See you in complete health
Mohsen
