My Picture of the Week

June 26, 2009

khandi

Her name is Khandi. She lives in Florida. And she is also my sister-in-law! I call her ‘Piece of Heaven’. She was home in SVG for one week and left yesterday. I miss her terribly. We’ve spent much quality time together.

This picture was taken from my Iphone and photoshopped by me. It’s now ONE of my favourite pictures of all time.

Love you Khandi!

Blogspot Vs WordPress

June 19, 2009

blogger-vs-wordpress

I’ve finally moved all my posts from Blogspot to WordPress.com.  It took me a couple of days to come to a decision.  I’ve checked many links where the pros and cons of both Blogspot and WordPress are listed.  I’ve read each and every word.

So here are 6 reasons why WordPress won ME over Blogspot:

  1. WP delivers a better dashboard.
  2. I don’t have to configure my Pages and Links sections, or any widgets I’ve added, everytime I choose to change themes.
  3. Categories Section! Need I say more?
  4. Quick Edit option (I’m not sure if Blogspot has this option).
  5. Comments section is in sync with your theme.
  6. Polls section already integrated.

Blogspot has great features and one of its winning points is ‘customised theme’. But I’m currently satisfied with whatever themes WP has on offer. It all comes to personal choice at the end of the day. The best way is to try both for a couple of weeks and see which one brings you the result you’re expecting.

Cheers!

This is what I wake up to every morning. It’s not sunny today. Cool breeze though. Next time, I’ll take the pic from the top floor and when the sun is out.

SOMEBODY HAS TO SAY IT

June 12, 2009

Reading blogs has become a part of my daily routine. Once or twice, per day, I come across an article where men are downsized for some reason or the other. I, for once, would like to dedicate this blog to the men, especially those in my life.

Women and men, we all have flaws but unity should prevail and instead of focusing on the negative traits of each other, we should put time in appreciating what goodness and happiness we bring – or can bring – to each other.

So what are the good qualities of men?

Let’s start with them being generous. Yes, they are.

Always ready to share their lunch with you or buy you one? Definitely. Willing to dip into their personal allowance to lend you when you’re in need? You can easily count on them to share their answers while sitting for a test. How many girls/women would readily do that? Having trouble with your boyfriend? The best person to talk to is a male friend. He wouldn’t berate your man and will try to appease things between you two. No I-told-you-so or of-course-he-is-a-player-so-what-did-you-expect! What about when you’re feeling low? They’ll cheer you up in a funny and yet successful manner. They can’t bear the sight of tears! While dating, if they do not have any long-term commitment plans with you in mind, they’ll subtly let you know. At least men with confidence won’t play games with you. Even the cocky ones will make you laugh with their high-handed selves. They do speak less and act more. Sometimes, with little encouragement, they’ll speak their heart and ‘fess up if they did you wrong. Very often you’ll even become susceptible to their white lies. The fellas are, in my book, ‘Advocates of White Lies’! 😀

Men fall into different categories, just like women do. We often forget, in our bitterness towards men, that even many of them tend to have misgivings about mundane things. Nervousness strikes them as well. Just because witnessing a beautiful sunset makes them emotional doesn’t turn them into a wimp. I, personally, find it heartening to see tears in a man’s eyes; it rouses empathy within.

On that account, i would like to add that not all men are rapists, murderers, perverts, players, haters and other what-nots. I, as a woman, would like to make an appeal: Take time out for the men in your life. They need reassurance just as much as we do.

How much water do you drink per day?

Drinking too much water leads to health complications!

Two weeks ago, my sister-in-law, J, and I were talking about our respective health issues. She, very often, suffers from tremendous headaches. Upon her visit to the doctor, she was told that, after being questioned about her eating/drinking habits, she has been drinking too much water!! J was stunned and thinking to herself, “that’s a crazy notion, especially coming from a doctor!” She is a busy mum and never took the time to check it online or get a second opinion from another medical person.

I google everything. Of course I looked it up! What did we know?! The results were astounding.

Excessive intakes of water culminate into a condition called ‘hyponatremia’. Wikipedia defines it as ‘an electrolyte disturbance (disturbance of the salts in the blood) in which the sodium concentration in the plasma is lower than normal’. Read more on hyponatremia here.

There is another article that caught my eye. It reveals how a woman ‘died after competing in a radio station’s on air-water-drinking contest’. Full article here.

Balance is key people!! The author of the article advised:

Drink to your thirst. It’s the best indicator.”

I totally agree.
