The next day…

Today many Portuguese woke up to the sad reality that Portugal will not be playing in the finals after last night’s loss against France. Although the dream of becoming World Champions was harshly stolen from them there is still a little room for redemption, third place.

While third place isn’t all that's cracked up to be, Portugal still hopes to give its fans one final World Cup celebration Saturday in its match against Germany. Last time Portugal fought for this spot it was in 1966 when Eusebio's team beat the Soviet Union to capture third place, representing Portugal’s best finish up to date.

"We're proud and happy to be in the best four of the 32 teams that started this tournament," Scolari said. "It's an historic achievement."

Although third place isn’t has clamorous as the finals it is always better than fourth.

Ó rapaz todos nós gostamos da Nazaré, tu é quês estas a levar isto tudo muito a sério… Tens que aprender a levar as coisas mais na desportiva… Deixa-te dessas coisas porque isso é que dá mau nome aos Nazarenos.

If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

It's time to live life to the fullest

It is so easy to get caught up in everyday life. To be out of balance. To forget about what truly matters to you.

If we don't consciously choose how we spend our time, we lose it to mundane tasks. Our own dreams never see the light of day.

Take Control, create goals, plan your goals with an outline, track them daily and "Start Living your Dreams".

We want to support you in making your life your own.

You have the strength inside of you to climb the highest mountains.

What do you want from yourself?

Find the motivation behind your goals. Tie them into a purpose and get started.

Caro Luis Damasco,

Antes de mais muitos parabens pelo blog.
Cheguei a ele, enquanto pesquisava na net como criar um blog com três colunas, tendo como base o Rounders3.
Sou muito leigo nesta matéria, e como tal gostaria de saber se me poderá enviar o HTML completo do seu blog, para que utilizar como base para o meu.
Obviamente que apenas utilizarei o "esqueleto" e alterarei a totalidade dos conteudos, porque não é meu interesse "roubar-lhe" o blog.
agradecia então que me enviasse o HTML para o seguinte e-mail:
pedro.coelholima@gmail.com

Obrigado
