I’m trying a new subscribe to comments plug-in because the one that I was using, Subscribe to Comments Reloaded, just got updated and crashed the site. Not cool. Anyway, this new one is called Postmatic and seems to be pretty cool. It will allow you to reply to comments that you subscribed to from your e-mail. No need to visit the site to reply. Please give it a try and let me know how it works out, por favor (please)…

Elephants, like anyone else, have those hard to reach places when taking a shower or bath. I figured that I’d be a friendly sort and give her a hand, wash those difficult to get to places. She, I suppose, decided to return the favor and I was not on one of those hard-to-get-to places. 🙂 I don’t know if elephants can indeed smile, but I could swear that she was smiling and getting a certain amount of joy out of…

He was speaking in his native language of Odia, but it was clear that he was asking and receiving directions. He’d stop at…

The moves! 😀 The lights were pulsing, the beat pounding, feet moving, hands waving, invitations to dance by young and old, lots of fun. Little did I know that my super smooth moves would elevate me to that of celebrity … but I was soon to find out … One of the most fun parts of an Indian wedding, to…

I can imagine that anyone who has tasted Indian food will realize that it is complex in flavor. It’s loaded with so many different spices, so many levels. It is so complex that it is nearly impossible to pair a wine with it. Instead, you just have to go with something simple, beer. 🙂 I’ve already spoken about the complexity of their traffic! Add to the this the fact that each state has their own language and many dialects of…
