Blue is a colour, the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 440–490 nm. It is considered one of the additive primary colours. On the HSV Colour Wheel, the complement of blue is yellow; that is, a colour corresponding to an equal mixture of red and green light. On a colour wheel based on traditional colour theory (RYB), the complementary colour to blue is considered to be orange.
The English language commonly uses "blue" to refer to any colour from navy blue to cyan. The word itself is derived from the Old French word bleu.
Blue often represents the human emotion of sadness, e.g. "He was feeling blue".
The blues is a style of music originated by African Americans. Contrary to popular belief it is not called Blues because its lyrics are depressing but because its scale is inclusive of the "dark notes" or blue notes.
National colours
Blue is the national sports colour for India, as it denotes secularism.

Friends smile at you.
They like your face.
They want to be with you
Any old place.
Friends have fun with you.
Friends share.
They’re glad when you’re happy
When you’re sad, they care.
If you’re a friend
Then you care, too.
That’s why your friends
Are glad you’re you!!!

Dreaming of Summer

I'm dreaming of warm sandy beaches.
I'm dreaming of days by the pool.
I'm dreaming of fun in the afternoon sun,
and week after week of no school.

I'm thinking of swim suits and sprinklers,
imagining lemonade stands.
I'm lost in a daydream of squirt guns and ice cream
and plenty of time on my hands.

I'm picturing baseball and hot dogs,
Envisioning games at the park,
and how it stays light until late every night,
and seems like it never gets dark.

I long to ride skateboards and scooters.
I want to wear t-shirts and shorts.
I'd go for a hike, or I'd ride on my bike,
or play lots of summertime sports.

My revery turns to a yearning
to draw on the driveway with chalk.
It's really a bummer to daydream of summer
while shoveling snow from the walk.

Portuguese forces, led by Afonso I, a young and ambitious man, defeated his mother D.Teresa and D.Fernão Peres de Trava,near Guimarães. It's called Battle of São Mamede. After this battle, the future king called himself "Prince of Portugal".
The city is often referred to as the "birthplace of the Portuguese nationality" and also was the birthplace of Afonso I of Portugal, the first Portuguese king.

I am glad I was your Teacher!

I'm glad I was your teacher
I've come to love you so.
I can't believe the end is here.
I hate to see you go.

Remember all the fun we had
in all the things we did
But most of all remember...
You're a Very Special Kid!

Dia do Funcionário Público Aposentado ( 16/6)

Hora de contemplar,
De ver, que tudo não foi em vão,
Que as sementes lançadas ao vento,
Produziram alimentos para o corpo,
E para o espírito.
Hora de se orgulhar,
E de refletir ...
A sua contribuição,
Dia após dia,
Foi registrada no tempo,
E nem mesmo o vento,
Poderá apagá-la.
Peças encaixadas com maestria,
No grande quebra-cabeças da vida.
Exposto a todos aqueles,
Que em algum dia
Também irão dizer:
