Awakening !!

For long I had been trying to find a sp*m blocker for my blog, which had, by now, transformed itself into a sp*mmers paradise !! The math “puzzle” that I had installed earlier, turned out to be “not so” successful. Apparently every sp*mmer knew what 2+3 would equal to 😀 !! Anyway, the “long” search for a sp*m blocker finally ended today when I installed the Sp*m Karma , which “ate” up the sp*ms. (I always knew I needed a monster to help me with my job ;-).

I was also searching for a good theme as a replacement for the “aging” classic theme that I had on my page. Several of them came and went but none seemed to suit my taste. And then it happened today. Along came the nebula !! :-). Although “she” does not quite like the way I put photographs on the page, my inherent weakness towards planetary bodies didn’t let me take this off. 😀


The irony of a snow-filled spring break finally seems to be going away – the snow is melting and the temperature rising. In fact I had a very relaxed week too, spending most of the time walking up and down the streets of Manhattan and occasionally going up into the clouds too (on an elevator of course ;-)).

With St Patrick’s Day fast approaching, I decided to pick up an Irish book to mark this day !! And the book I chose – Angela’s Ashes by Frank Mc Court . At the onset, it is a very well written memoir, talking about the great depression in America and the poverty in Ireland at that time. It just kept me engrossed all throughout the 5 hour journey back to Syracuse. I plan to finish it before the Irish day – March 17th !! :-). And it looks like my “addiction” to buying books just would not let go off me. I already have a long backlog of books lying around me waiting to be read 🙂 hehe.

So here’s to the St. Patricks Day –
