[Photo above shows the family of Brod GLENN aka GLENN UMALI GOLLA, his wife and the TROIKA of kids. From L-R: Jon, Brod Glenn, Marivic (Brod Glenn’s winsome wife), Glenn Jr., and Kym]
He holds a POST-GRADUATE DIPLOMA in G.E.T.1,
Thus, as my FRATERNITY BROTHER he’s a B.E.S.T.2
Found out that he was a CHEVRON3 SCIENTIST,
With his looks, he could pass for a movie ARTIST!
Though I have not been his school CONTEMPORARY4,
But OMIGOSH his bio-data5 is quite EXTRAORDINARY;
His secondary speaks of COMPREHENSIVE EDUCATION6,
I deem it as involved with high-grade COGNITION!
He graduated from UP7 in GEOLOGY,
And his FB8 “work & education” comes in sets of TRILOGY9;
He even sired kids with Marivic in TRINE10,
Indeed, your lucky numbers are 3, 7 and NINE11!
Per your HOROSCOPE Brother GLENN,
You’re GENUINE and so POSITIVE like SEAN PENN12;
You’re described as OPTIMISTIC TOO,
And you bring much benefit to people AROUND YOU!
And as a PISCES person per the mystical ZODIAC,
You really could achieve much LUCK…
And as your LUCKY numbers are 3, 9 and SEVEN…
You could perhaps buy a quick LOTTO ticket at 7-11!
And as a resident of LA, CALIFORNIA,
My hunch persists that there’s still that POTENTIA12;
That you could win the JACKPOT in LOTTO,
Well, I’ll not ask for a BIG (perhaps just a trifle) “BALATO”!
Thank you13 ONCE again my debonair BROD,
I hope someday we’ll have our elbows RUBBED;
I hope to meet you ANEW in the FLESH,
And your wifey MARIVIC14 too, I’m so much IMPRESSED!
AND MY THREE (3) DANCING DAMES ARE MUCH MORE IMPRESSED!!!
[Photos above show the LOVEY-DOVEY couple – at right, while lounging languidly at the Newport Beach in California; while at left is a pretty framable photo of Brod Glenn and his wife Marivic.]
PROFUSE AND PROFOUND THANKS TO YOU BROD GLENN and MARIVIC as well as UNTO YOUR KIDS!!!!
[Legend: 1 – G.E.T. is acronym for GEOTHERMAL ENERGY TECHNOLOGY and Brod Glenn aka Glenn Umali Golla earned a POST-GRADUATE DIPLOMA in G.E.T. at the University of Auckland in New Zealand in 1993.
2 – B.E.S.T. is another acronym which I myself crafted and which stands for: BROD EDUCATED IN SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY, and it surely also means BEST which denotes being MOST EXCELLENT.
3 – Chevron Corporation is an American multinational energy corporation. One of the successor companies of Standard Oil, it is headquartered in San Ramon, California, and active in more than 180 countries. Chevron is engaged in every aspect of the oil, natural gas, and geothermal energy industries, including hydrocarbon exploration and production; refining, marketing and transport; chemicals manufacturing and sales; and power generation.
4 – Brod Glenn and I did not actually become contemporaries in UP as when I graduated from UP Law in 1980 at Malcolm Hall which is too distantly far from the Arts & Sciences Bldg. known as PALMA Hall where the first 2 years of college work is done; it was I believe his sophomore year then in pursuit of a course at UP-Diliman in BS Geology.
5 – I actually did not see his actual bio-data but that as inputs in this FUN RHYME BLOG, I resorted to and checked/verified his entries at Facebook particularly about his “work & education”.
6 – Brod Glenn’s entry in FB page about his secondary education is that he graduated from the “MORONG NATIONAL COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOL – CLASS OF 1979”.
7 – UP is University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, Metro-Manila, Philippines.
8 – FB refers to Brod Golla’s Facebook page.
9 – As presented in Brod Glenn’s FB page, his work history is as follows: (1) Former Sr. Earth Scientis at CHEVRON, Geothermal Indonesia, Ltd., (2) Geologist Advisor – CHEVRON Geothermal Indonesia; and, (3) Earth Scientist – CHEVRON, Bakersfield, USA. On the other hand, Brod Glenn’s education is presented thus: (1) UNIVERSITY OF AUCKLAND – Post Graduate in Geothermal Energy Technology, Auckland, New Zealand – Class of 1993, (2) UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES – DILIMAN – BS Geology – Class of 1983; and, (3) MORONG NATIONAL COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOL – MORONG, RIZAL – Class of 1979.
10 – TRINE means THREE or THREEFOLD.
11 – The numbers 7 and 9, as Brod Glenn’s lucky numbers are based from my GOOGLE-RESEARCH at “Pisces February 25 – Birthday Horoscope Personality Traits Sun Signs. However, the following link address:http://www.thehoroscope.co/zodiac-signs/february-25-zodiac-pisces.html, added “3” as Brod Glenn’s another LUCKY NUMBER.
12 – Sean Penn is a famous Hollywood actor who is considered as powerhouse film performer capable of intensely moving work, who has gone from strength to strength during a colorful film career, and who has drawn much media attention for his stormy private life and political viewpoints. The 1990s was the decade in which Sean really got noticed by critics as a mature, versatile and accomplished actor, with a string of dynamic performances in first-class films despite past failures by reason of his POSITIVE outlook. Certainly, Sean Penn is one of Hollywood’s most controversial, progressive and gifted actors.
13 – The word POTENTIA actually should be spelled POTENTIAL. But just as to achieve a RHYME, it was truncated to read “POTENTIA”.
14 – Brod Glenn and his wife Marivic sent their donation through XOOM instead of the GENEROSITY.COM FUNDRAISER which was launched by my youngest daughter Alee and her team mates quest in the LEGIT STATUS to bag the GOLD in this 2017 WORLD HIPHOP INTERNATIONAL CONTEST.
15 – Marivic is Brod Glenn’s gracious, pretty, charming and demure wife.]
