Today’s face of the day is a non-practising Muslim in the same way that I am a non-practising Roman Catholic. Like her I was brought up in a religion and then as an adult I chose to not follow it. If anyone now called me a Catholic or criticised my choices in life based on the fact that I was brought up Catholic I would be outraged. It has never happened though because Catholicism is a religion that you can leave whereas Islam is like the song Hotel California.
Face of the Day
I Love this Japanese Doctor who is today’s face of the day.
Q: Doctor, I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it… Don’t waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: Oh no. Wine made from fruit. Fruit very good. Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Grain good too. Bottom up!
Today’s face of the day has had to deal with so much heartbreak at such a young age. With a wisdom beyond his years he has focussed on helping other people to smile and in doing so has made himself feel better. Be warned that the below video about Jayden will make you cry even as it makes you smile. How is it that young children can be so wise?
Does this look like the face of a man who would act inappropriately?
What about this face?
Is Al Sharpton even relevant any more?

This is my father in law, when he was at Nui Dat in Vietnam in 1966
A poster of a topless woman unearthed in an Auckland flat has led to a chance reunion for a model 25 years later.
The print of the near-naked woman was left at a Grey Lynn house several years ago and has been passed down between flatmates before being put up for sale on Trade Me this week.
Its buyer was the very model herself – Fiona Wilson.
Peters has promised to reinstate Northland’s railways and decrease the use of 40-54 tonne trucks presently “destroying” Northland roads.

Yup that’s all folks.
Last night I couldn’t come up with a face of the day for today and with the wind howling outside, my bed and a hot cup of tea were calling my name. I would like to give this face some deep emotional or political meaning so that we could debate its merits but it is just what it is, my emergency face of the day for evenings like this one.
Maybe it represents the face we present to the world which is distinct from our real face. Think about the few people in our lives who really, truly know us well. What masks do we wear when we are out in public?
