I think one has to add him up first as a friend before you can see his groups.

Apparently.I myself didn't know that until now though.If if anyone's up for it,leave your e-mail address,I'll have you invited.

I last saw kano in the mid eighties and it was a beautuful place and i have great memories of this beautiful city as i spent my child hood here and lived in from 79 to 85 and studied in Magwan Primary School and later in Kano Capital School till form 2 and later left the country because my father left job there ,can any body tell me are these schools Magwan and Kano Capital School still there and i lived near the Rimi Market in the city and there was a big hospital near my house named as Murtala Muhammad hospital,are these places still there and how is the life now I had many friends at that time but i have no contact with them now ,one i can remember was Hussaini Sani whose father had biscuits and macaroni factories and he was close friend of mine and used to visit me some times at my house and i remember the   wonderful people kano had,i have visited world over now to many places but the love and hospitality which i saw in kano i can not forget and great congregations of people in eid and juma prayers and amir of kano travelling in the streets and also i visited outside places and villages around kano and factories around kano and i remember unity stores and chellarams which were big departmental stores and how lovely and peaceful it was to be in kano,now adays i read that kano has got too dangerous a place to visit ,can any one tell me about anything which i mentioned and i will write more as i remember

OMGGGGG.Sweet nostagia.I attended Kano Capital Sch,as a matter of fact,so did all my siblings.I remember all those places you cited,and I also happen to know Sani Marshall family,albeit on a superficial level.I feel like I'm being teleported back in time reading your post.Kano isn't the same,of course,anymore.So much had changed,but so much more is still the same,as with all great places.I'll leave it at that.

I would look it up. My problem with facebook is you get bombarded with those endless friends requests.

You can have your account modified by editing the settings,that way,you can weed out anything you dislike,including ,of course,those annoying requests.

Literature / K-online E-book Club
« on: January 15, 2008, 03:29:51 PM »
I recently stumbled upon a book called ''Love In The Time of Cholera" by  Gabriel García Márquez,which was recomended by Oprah Winfrey for the Oprah's Book Club,a wildly popular and often controversial book club that kick-starts the career of many previously-unknown authors to unprecedented levels of success,and inevitably, fame.So I thought,why not start one for  K-online..and that's that.But of course,unlike Oprah's book club in which only Oprah can suggest a book,anyone can select/highlight a book here,as long as a downloadable e-version is available,that is.

i,Select/suggest a book(e-version)  ii,Provide a link to the book (or at least important excerpts from the book) iii, At the end of every specified period,forumnites gather to review or make contructive criticism(highlight the book's weaknesses,strength,morale etc)--basically to discuss the book.And the cycle is repeated..

I'll start..




Book Description:
Here are the simple truths that motivate people of any age to find and accept lasting happiness, illustrated with the stories of real people, and illuminated with the observations of spiritual leaders and great philosophers.

For more than three decades, attorney, financial consultant, and life coach Stephen M. Pollan has been advising clients and readers on the business of living -- everything from home buying and employment contracts to marriage and parenting. He has taught his clients and readers to Die Broke (use assets rather than build up an estate), to stage Second Acts (reinvent their lives), and, most recently, to Fire Your Boss (take charge of their own work lives).

Throughout these books, Pollan stresses that attitudes as well as actions are essential to success. Indeed, over the years he realized that the happiest and most successful people he'd met were also those who were the most energetic and exuberant, regardless of their age. By noting these attributes and incorporating them in his own life, Pollan came to understand that our attitudes are not just one element of succeeding at the business of living, they are in fact the foundation of leading a happy life.

About the Author:
Stephen M. Pollan, a New York City-based attorney, financial adviser, and career expert, is one of America's most-renowned financial experts. Mark Levine has been Stephen Pollan's collaborator for more than eighteen years. Together they have authored numerous books, including the national bestsellers Lifescripts, Live Rich, and Die Broke, and most recently, Second Acts. They have been nominated for three National Magazine Awards.

I'm too,well,if you discount the fact that I barely made it into the new year,that is.What a great way to step in 08'.It's our takeover year,hope advasaries are ready!
Accompaying the atrocious meal came this really equally weird rainbow-y concoction of a drink (non alcoholic,or so I've been told),and the rest was history.Or almost history.And of course,I puked the living hell outta my stomach ,and inevitably passed out.

Lol at death's door were you?  :o
Dont go through it just yet! we'll miss you if u do ;D ;D ;D ;D

Allah Ya ja zamanin ka dai.. ;D


Ai anti Husna & B-G,wasu kan ce ana kata'i a Legas!!!! Here's what happened;this young German couple,whom I'm mutual friends with,invited me to their big annual soirée on the new year's eve.Ditching my friends and my new years' rituals in favor of a little hedonism and decadence,I slammed the accelerator straight to the party.I've always wanted to visit the historical harbour which houses some famous museums and  war relics from the 60s',so I stopped over.The security guards at the gates were dozing off when I arrived, so I decided to let myself in and maybe snap a photo or two.It turns out that that very bulletin board at the gates-which I ignored and almost ran over,and which was not written in English-clearly states that it's a punishable offence to take pictures around that area since it's part of the disputed zones that caused alot of turbulence in the past.Needless to say,I spent Godknowshowlong in the custody of the soldiers,answering all sorts of irrelevant questions regarding---nothing! .Three hrs deep into the party I arrived,finally,and as if my day wasn't bad enough,I was greeted with what appeared to be some..okay--don't know what it was but it sorta tasted like mini veggie pizzas,only it had this really weird taste(courtesy of blue cheese?) and a devastatingly numbing aftertaste.Accompaying the atrocious meal came this really equally weird rainbow-y concoction of a drink (non alcoholic,or so I've been told),and the rest was history.Or almost history.And of course,I puked the living hell outta my stomach ,and inevitably passed out.Or so I was told.As you might have guessed,having found out that I was ,in fact, still alive,the first number I punched on the cell was my mum's.O' to be alive..sai godiya ga Allah (S.W.T)

Now if you'll excuse me,I'll be lol-ing.

chit-chat / Re: MENS WARDROBE (STRICTLY FOR MEN)
« on: January 07, 2008, 06:29:39 PM »
     :) But Dan Barno there is nothing like accepting anything here.The man is only stronger and aggresive but not superior nor any wiser.It is upto the man to make use of what he has possitively and not try to impose superiority over opposite sex because there is absolutely nothing like that.Ko a zamanin da din people want to have male children ne so they could help with the farming because they are stronger.There are things that only a man can do(a woman can attept and be successful) and there are also things that only a woman can do(and a man can attept and be successful).One more thing,we are the same species dan barno(got you there.hahaha).

Of course man is on the average superior and wiser. What do you mean  >:(




Did I miss some private joke? As much as I hate to chime in on other's bussiness,your comment's not only offending,mysogynistic and sexist,it's also pretty disturbing that a well educated 21st century man would indulge in sheer narrow-mindedness.Men are NEITHER superior NOR   wiser than women.Unless,of course,you equate physical strength with wisdom,which would have been even MORE disappointing.You shall be forgiven though,given that probably you,like me,grew up in a strictly patriarchal/male totalitarian and  setting where male dominance trumps simple logic.It'd be interesting for you to know that several profoundly concrete studies exist suggesting that women are,in fact,on an average,23% more intelligent than men.SMH!

Everything's fine. Except u've disappeared as usual. Muhsin da amira suna ta cigiyarka.

Glad to hear that you're doing great.I'm too,well,if you discount the fact that I barely made it into the new year,that is.What a great way to step in 08'.It's our takeover year,hope advasaries are ready!
