Alexander Blake is well known to members of this forum. I am seeking information about his origins. The earliest documented references to Alexander known to me are found in the journal of the Rev. John Thomas, a pioneer Wesleyan missionary in Tonga. During the late 1830s, Thomas referred to Alexander as an Englishman working for the Wesleyan mission as a printer. In Nuku`alofa on 9 October 1839, Thomas married Alexander to Matelita, "a very interesting young Christian of this place", as Thomas… Continue

A powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.9 struck off the South Pacific island nation of Samoa on Tuesday, triggering a tsunami warning and sending coastal residents fleeing to higher ground.
The quake was strong enough for the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre to issue a tsunami warning for a large swathe of the South Pacific including Fiji, New Zealand and Tonga.
"I'm taking my family to a safe place. Everyone's getting out of coastal areas," Samoa resident Keni Lesa told AFP… Continue

Much inaccurate information has appeared here about Siale`ataongo. Although he was the only surviving child of Ma`afu, Fiji's first Tui Lau, and Elenoa Gataialupe, Siale never became Tui Lau himself. At the time of Ma`afu's death in Feb 1881, Siale had been resident on Vanuabalavu for several years. His time there was not distinguished: he was once reprimanded for arresting several people without a warrant and, when acting as a magistrate on Vanuabalavu, sometimes condemned the accused without… Continue

One of the most difficult things to do is find yourself in a storm and while in that storm it seems like everyone who you thought you could count on has well walked away; and sometimes it seems like even God Himself has forgotten about you. But in spite of it all you should still be able to lift your hands and say;
"Lord, I trust You" .
Even though i can’t see and i can’t feel your touch, i will trust you lord, how i love you so much...
Though my nights may seem long and i feel… Continue

Below is page 4 of the PCPPP. We will try to disect the inconsistencies that this Ilegal Government is trying to hoodwinked us.
As from the conception of the PCPP it has been trying to make in-roads into the minds of the Citizens of Fiji to accept this ILEGAL DOCUMENT AS somewhat superseding the constitution - the very constitution it broadcasts it supremacy! What a joke!!

"TO HAVE THE BEST HEALTH IN LIFE"
Blessed is the man...who mediates and delight in his word day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season; whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
Psalm 01 : 01 - 03
I want to wake you up this morning and greet you with this message from our heavenly father.
Are you feeling sad, worried, fear,… Continue

WHAT IS ENAMEL EROSION
Enamel erosion is the irreversible loss of tooth tissue due to exposure to acid.
Teeth are protected by a hard layer of enamel. When the layer is damaged, worn away or when gums recede, the dentine underneath the enamel is exposed. Dentine contains tiny pores called tubules, which lead to the nerve deep inside the tooth. As a result cold, heat and food or drink with a high sugar concentration,…

A soul so beautiful, yet so lost
a soul so vulnerable, yet so strong
a heart so loving, yet so blind
a heart open so wide, it invites false company
yet you wander through life in blindness and full awareness,
never knowing in each moment which it is you face,
a memory of your past tempting you with honey that is not of a bee
a voice luring you, yet you don't see, it is not the voice of love,
All around you there are clues like bread crumbs,… Continue

"TAKE UP THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT--THE WORD OF GOD--AND GO TO WAR!"
"If we advance protected by the Blood of the Lamb, if we war armed with the Word of God, and if we shoulder in our hearts the Cross of Christ, we will truly be more than conquerors through Him that loved us."
Christ not only came to set captives free, He came to train and empower the recently freed to be warriors. We may not always walk perfectly, but because God causes all things to work for good, we still… Continue

In what may be the scariest shower news since Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho," a study says shower heads can harbor tiny bacteria that come spraying into your face when you wash.
People with normal immune systems have little to fear, but these microbes could be a concern for folks with cystic fibrosis or AIDS, people who are undergoing cancer treatment or those who have had a recent organ transplant.

"THE WOODEN BOWL"
A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in- law, and four-year - old grandson.
The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered.
The family ate together at the table. But the elderly grandfather's shaky hands and
failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor.
When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.
The son and… Continue

LOVE - The meeting of 2 personalities is like the contact of 2 chemical substances.
If there is any reaction ,both the are transformed.
To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.Never pretend to a love which you do not actually feel,for love is not ours to command.
Old love does not trust,love sees roses without thorns.
In love beggars and kings are equal.
