Mummy's Say - Rest in Peace, Shin Na....

I have been following Shin's Cancer Blog eversince I chanced upon this Channel 8 programme, 'In the Face of Death', sometime last year.

Shin was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer in December 2005. She spent 2006 getting surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. In August 2007, her cancer came back. In February 2008, she learned the cancer had spread to her brain, liver, lungs, and bones.

Shin had fought the good fight, finally succumbing to her illness yesterday afternoon. Through her blog, she had touched many lives, mine included, with her immense love for her family (daughter Josie, son Toby and husband Tony) and the courage she showed in the face of the terrible disease which not only ravaged her body but her family life. However, she never once complained, berating her fate. On the contrary, she remained upbeat about life, never wasting a single moment of her remaining days, but doing what she loved best i.e. loving her family.

Rest in peace, Shin. Though I never had the good fortune to have known you personally, with your passing, I feel as if I've lost a dear old friend. I will miss your wicked sense of humour, your keen observations of life, your optimism....You know, how it's been said that God does things for a reason (don't worry, Shin, I'm not proselytizing. We all know your stance on that one)? Well, I know for sure, you have touched many people through what you've done with your life, and definitely through your blog, cos' I've most certainly been, and am appreciating what I have, i.e. my hubby and kids, even more. Thank you for sharing so much about you and yours and teaching us to be thankful for small mercies. Josie and Toby must be so proud to have you as their Mom, and Tony, his wife.

the other in what category. However, it does not really have to be that way
anymore.

The 8GB version is only being sold through Google's own store, rather than physical retailers - but online buyers appear to have shunned it, surprising Google, which had thought that the cheaper version, despite having only half as much storage, would sell better than it has.

The device is certainly worth considering, even at the full retail price and with only a $200 discount on the contract, it might make sense
to consider paying the full retail. 1 is Samsungs replacement of the original Galaxy Tab 10.
