Share a Coke its no joke
Brings happiness to folks

It adds life to your wife
Coca cola body to strive

For the kids it will lead

Bubbling spirit will give

See smiles in their faces

How simple joy amazes

Celebrate life's milestone
You will enjoy life at home

It is the reason for all seasons
Togetherness is true happiness

Having fun with friends & family
A sure way to create many memories

Holidays birthdays parties and every day
Are made special with shared Coke and foodies

      Ted Llamas' Additional Information

  • Profiles of 2014 TOPS Awardees

    I. Philippine Army
    Designation: Acting Regiment Commander
    Unit of Assignment: Light Reaction Regiment, Special Operations Command, Philippine Army, Fort Ramon Magsaysay, Palayan City, Nueva Ecija
    Years in Service: 30 years

    As a young man, Colonel Teodoro A. Llamas PA entered the military primarily because he wanted to live a life full of adventure and experience to live beyond the ordinary. Prior to his assignment as the Acting Regiment Commander of the Light Reaction Regiment of the Special Operations Command of the Philippine Army, Col. Llamas honed his leadership skills leading various combat and non-combat missions across the country. More recently, Col. Llamas was at the forefront of the mission to neutralize the MNLF forces who wanted to declare independence from the Philippine government during the Zamboanga siege. Through his strategic direction and experience in hostage rescue and urban combat, the AFP was able to rescue 113 hostages and capture over a hundred MNLF fighters, on top of the seizure of high powered firearms. He also took the lead in organizing the first ever Counter-Terrorist Unit, the Light Reaction Company, the group that continuously protect the country from the threats of terrorism. Faced with limited resources, Col. Llamas, more importantly designed the low-cost semi-collapsible barracks that is still being used in the AFP today and saved hundreds of thousands in construction costs for the institution. On top of spearheading various community tree planting activities and rescue and retrieval operations, the Musang Band is also the brainchild of Col. Llamas, a group composed of the members of the 2nd Scout Ranger Battalion who possess talent in music. The band plays in different community occasions portraying a different image of the AFP and delivering a message of lasting peace to the people of Compostela Valley. In his 30 years in the military, Col. Llamas feels that soldiery goes beyond the feeling of adventure but should hold a much deeper meaning that is to serve, defend and protect Filipinos who could not fight for themselves.

Cranky Old Man Story Going For Another Round!!!!!

To celebrate Old Age and the Elderly  here is the very popular Cranky Old Man Story going for another round!!!!!

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.
Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, They found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.

One nurse took her copy to Melbourne. The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas editions of magazines around the country and appearing in mags for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem.

And this old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.

Cranky Old Man

What do you see nurses? . . .. . .What do you see?
What are you thinking .. . when you're looking at me?
A cranky old man, . . . . . .not very wise,
Uncertain of habit .. . . . . . . .. with faraway eyes?
Who dribbles his food .. . ... . . and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice . .'I do wish you'd try!'
Who seems not to notice . . .the things that you do.
And forever is losing . . . . . .. . . A sock or shoe?
Who, resisting or not . . . ... lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding . . . .The long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking?. .Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse .you're not looking at me.
I'll tell you who I am . . . . .. As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, .. . . . as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten . .with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters .. . . .. . who love one another
A young boy of Sixteen . . . .. with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now . . .. . . a lover he'll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty . . . heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows .. .. .that I promised to keep.
At Twenty-Five, now . . . . .I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide . . . And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty . .. . . . . My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other . . .. With ties that should last.
At Forty, my young sons .. .have grown and are gone,
But my woman is beside me . . to see I don't mourn.
At Fifty, once more, .. ...Babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children . . . . My loved one and me.
Dark days are upon me . . . . My wife is now dead.
I look at the future ... . . . . I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing .. . . young of their own.
And I think of the years . . . And the love that I've known.
I'm now an old man . . . . . . .. and nature is cruel.
It's jest to make old age . . . . . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles .. .. . grace and vigor, depart.
There is now a stone . . . where I once had a heart.
But inside this old carcass . A young man still dwells,
And now and again . . . . . my battered heart swells
I remember the joys . . . . .. . I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living . . . . . . . life over again.
I think of the years, all too few . . .. gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people .. . . . .. . . open and see.
Not a cranky old man .
Look closer . . . . see .. .. . .. .... . ME!!

Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who you might brush aside without looking at the young soul within. We will all, one day, be there, too!

PLEASE SHARE THIS POEM (originally by Phyllis McCormack; adapted by Dave Griffith)

The best and most beautiful things of this world can't be seen or touched. They must be felt by the heart!

A TRIBUTE TO A GREAT MAN (On Sec. Raul Gonzalez Sr.)

(On Sec. Raul Gonzalez Sr.)
BY: Deo Antonio D. Llamas

A man of courage and with sensibility
Honorable, loyal friend, a man of nobility

This is what his presence commands
He fights for right principles he stands

But remembers the masses plight
Medical services he made it right

Public service was in his blood
In histories pages he grandly stood

As Justice Secretary he understood
No man is above the Law as it should

To this man of courage and iron will
Sir we Salute you and bid our last farewell

                                       A man with a Mission
Definitely seen a Vision
Yields in full submission
To higher power and law

Great life one can live
If One gives all he can give
We get a living by what we get
We get life by what we give

He'll never get everything
But He can give hIs everything
A man who came from nothing
Generously gives with sympathy

Channel of Blessing to many
Manny yields to his Maker
Proven himself as a Boxer
Now he is a Law Maker

Remembering Ninoy is remembering too Macoy
Both were exceptional match in ways and ploys

As both were driven by their great self-ambitions
And as History leads them to their Grand Collision

Like great plots in a movie their characters stand
Asking Who's the hero, who is the villain at hand

Both in service to the Filipino People till their end
Admired loved by their constituents and followers

Divided the people between loyalist and reformist
Between privilege and deprived sectors that exist

See the hand of Destiny at play at this great rivalry
One died willingly the other fled and spared many

Both betrayed by their friend’s family this is tragedy
No morality when there's hidden agenda, its vanity

They have suffered & sacrificed for their principles
Their Ideals clashed as passionately and purposely

But let us not judged for they have lived great lives
Have their reasons and fight for what they believe

In the End their story will be remembered & retold
Who cares more, in heaven will Stand Tall & Bold

Remembering Ninoy is Remembering Macoy too.

Let us Forget the past animosity go for True Unity
Yes let us move forward for Peace and Prosperity

 Follow me
By: Deo Antonio D. Llamas

How can one change this World
When many tried, failed and not succeed

 But there is   one  man  in  history
   Who lead the race for Humanity

  He said follow me and see 
The Way, the Truth, the Life
He is a friend to everybody
Including the rejects  of the society

The Leppers, the sick and the prostitutes
Even the hated tax collectors

He simply says  repent  and be baptized
Change your sinful  ways and follow me

He showed us how through his stories
And by his life's example

For He so love the world
And His fellow man and said,

There is  no  greater  love  than this
That a man lays down his life for his friend

He was a friend to everybody
And that includes you and me

To change the world and make it better
Needs cleansing for it to heal after

Our friend nourish us with his love
A love that is from above

And commands us to love one another
Just as he loved us unconditionally

 So let us  emerse and  follow him
And change the world that starts with in
