Affordable vacation rentals in Orlando.

Here is some insight on vacation rental. I know you are on the verge of booking your orlando florida vacation rental for your Christmas holidays. But a few trivia will amuse you.

Vacation rental is a term in the travel industry meaning renting out a furnished apartment or house on a temporary basis to tourists as an alternative to a hotel.

Do you know that due to the popularity of this concept, in Barcelona, local authorities determined that vacation rentals were becoming a threat to the hotel industry and passed some legislation placing regulations and limits on the industry?

But in the U.S., the concept is well received and thus paved way for new entrepreneurs in this booming hospitality industry. To my knowledge, several companies are operating in Florida alone cashing in on the tourists rush to see the Disney World. is one such popular company that com provides the most affordable prices on the widest selection of hotels, car rentals and flights throughout the greater Orlando Florida area.

Ambani denies the report.

Just after day it was reported that Ambani of the Reliance group is the richest man in the world overtaking Bill gates, he has denied that he is the richest man in the world.

Well, he should his reasons for his denial and we should respect it and elevate Bill Gates again and enthrone him.

To my guess, BCCI (Board of Cricket Control in India) should be the richest corporate body. Every now and then news papers in India reports their wealth. They have built up crores of Rupees and no one knows what they are doing with it.

In my opinion, with their wealth, they can completely eradicate poverty in India.

International movers.

What do you call this-a coincidence or chance?

When I am trying to locate a mover in my city, I am asked to do a review about an international mover.

Ok, here it is that will benefit many people in the world. I think of Indians especially because I know that hundreds of families are migrating from India to the U.S. because a member in the family who is already working in the U.S. has just got his American citizen.

This website has tie up with many international shipping agencies and packers and movers. They assure safe logistics solution irrespective of your location in the world.

This service is a unique one and needs to be bookmarked.

Do we know what '~' is for?

We have been using our computer keyboard for a long time. But are we using all the keys? Obviously not. Because it is not required.

Ok, at least do we know the functions of the rarely or unused keys? Certainly not!

For example we rarely use function keys that are numbered as F1 to F12. We do not use '^' also.
Do we know what '~' is for? When did it start appearing on our keyboard?

Here is some useful information about a file with '~' that appear on our desktop.

To say it in brief:
"This file started appearing on people's desktop after the April 2003, Cumulative Patch for Outlook Express (330994) update released by Microsoft. If that update is installed and you take any action that changes the Windows Address Book the tilde file will appear on your desktop."

However, you can click on the link above to know in detail.

Get the best relocation quotes nation wide.

My family is moving to a different house this Sunday. It is a fairly bigger house from where I can operate my maths academy also. We all liked the place though the rent is on the higher side. (Rs.10, 000).

We have many furniture, 3 computers and three heavy cupboards. So, the next big question is to find a reasonably priced packer and mover. It is always easy to decide in favor of bigger house in a better locality but we usually feel uncomfortable when faced with challenges of relocation related tasks that include find a moving service, informing the post office, banks and several utility services about the change of address etc.

I wish there is a company in India like National Relocation that offer a unique relocation service. We can list all our possessions that require shifting, particular of present location to the new location etc and receive quotations from movers.

National Relocation offers other related services such as real estate and rentals. This is a big company and operates nation wide.

Apartment owners can list their properties for rent for free with As many owners are utilizing this free service, their apartment rentals section offers a wide range of apartments that are suitable to all classes of people.

If only such a company exists in India, it can reap rich rewards.

The price of Gold will rise!

Businessmen and house wives in India have been sitting on the edge of their seat as if they are watching a one day cricket match. But they are actually watching the price of gold which is witnessing a steady rise for the past week.

Subscribers to several financial news letters are aware that many financial experts have predicted that the gold price will soar to Rs.1000 per gram within a month or so. But beating the prediction, the gold price is already nearing the Rs.1000 mark and now stands at Rs.925 per ram.

Credit Suisse predicts that the yellow metal will touch $1000 per ounce over the next five years. As usual, I looked up at Monex for their views. Yes, they also conform to the views of experts.

If Monex agrees, then I don’t have to look any further. After all, it has been serving the Americans’ precious metal investing needs for the last 30 years.

Children at the birthday party will squeal in delight at the beautiful looking smiley face on the candies. Children may again revive the history of collecting candy wrappers and the craze may even spread to all the continents in the world.

A gift for Christams from Nokia.

I changed my mind but it took me two years. But now I am a fan of Nokia mobile phones.

My first cell phone was Motorola. I bought it four years ago. Looking back, it must have been in a museum already. The current models from LG and Nokia are simply fantastic technologically.
The price of the mobile phones have come down drastically.

But whenever a new model is introduced, they fix a very high price. After a few months, another model pushes the price of the previous model down.

As per the blog post of James, Nokia is coming out with Nokia N810, Nokia’s Internet Tablet phone ( picture below) and the successor to the N800. It apparently will have the Mozilla browser, full GPS and room to expand storage to 10GB. There is also a huge 4″ screen and, the major improvement from the N800, a full qwerty keyboard. It is expected in the UK before Christmas and should retail for about £299 minus SIM.

Gratitude to: Mighty gadget Blog.

Wonderful help for webmasters.

I think I hold a record of joining the highest number of Google groups on that I stayed as a member for just a few minutes. (smile)

Somehow I don't find the time to read these Google groups though I find them very useful when I find them. The interest subsides within a few minutes after I browse through the discussions.

I hope to stay put in this webmasters help group at least for a week.

"This community is intended to be a comfortable and useful meeting place for English-speaking site owners* to ask questions and share information with each other and participating Google employees".

I read a topic on which I am really interested-it is about PR dropping to zero or lower page rank.
This is a sample to let you know what is in for webmasters.

Huge collection mobile phone art.

I have never seen such a vast collection of art for mobile phones.

I like beautiful looking wall papers for my mobile phone. My husband and son too crazy about it.
We all keep changing the wall papers and up load different images and tag them with names in the address book.

“My work has been shown in museums around the world,“ observed photographer Ashkan Sahihi. “But I am more excited by the populist implications of START MOBILE – this truly has the potential to make NEW ART accessible to EVERYONE.”

I would like to express my gratitude to for having introduced StartMobile, the directory for mobile ring tones and wallpapers.

High profit advertising method.

Whatever may be the available marketing methods in the Internet, direct mailing is still considered as the best way to reach customers.

When compared to various internet marketing ways such as classified advertising, PPC advertising or message board advertising, the cost of reaching the customers directly through mailing lists is costlier but at the same time more effective.

The conversion ratio is still the best in this proven method. Telemarketers are the biggest clients of Martin Worldwide-The Mailing Lists Company based in California because Martin Worldwide has built a reputation by offering innovative mailing list products to its clients.

Through their successful product named ResponseCom™, they offer over 100 demographic and psychographic categorized mailing lists.

They claim to posses a database of 290 million consumers which has been compiled painstakingly over a decade using several filters and confirmations.

The success of direct mail marketing can be attributed to two main aspects.

The first is that it attempts to send its messages directly to consumers, without the use of intervening media. This involves unsolicited commercial communication with consumers or businesses.

The second characteristic is that it is focused on driving purchases that can be attributed to a specific "call-to-action." Telemarketing companies solely bank on this valuable component while purchasing targeted mailing lists.

For more information on Martin Worldwide and its direct marketing products and services, please call (888) - 267-3545.

Back up with GMail drive.

I read a blog post just in time and it saved me Rs.2000.

I was about to buy a flash drive to back my important files and folders when I found out GMail drive which can be useful as a free online disk.

Silki's Web Tools is a blog that I read frequently. Yes, I admit, I have not visited her blog in the recent past.

Only I am the loser because I might have missed a lot of important information. Had I not visited today, I might not have known about the GMail drive and as I said, I would have unnecessarily Rs.2000.

"Gmail Drive, is a useful web tool, which allows you to use this space virtually as if it was available on your hard disk. You can save files, add folders, rename files, search files and delete them through Windows Explorer just like any other file on your computer. And the best part is that, these files are available to you from any other computer, which is connected to the Internet".

Thank you Silki.

The boss and you.

When you start for your office on everyday, you should be eagerly looking forward to it. You should sincerely like the challenges you face daily, derive satisfaction from finding solutions and when you leave the office at the end of the day, you should be whistling to yourself.

This will happen only when you have given your 100%. A nice and considerate boss will be an added factor to your happiness.

Shall we say only 50% of the office goers fit in the above category? The rest of the regular employees would always dream of becoming a boss themselves.

Which trip planner you depend on?

People mock at us for trivial reasons. Yes, I also did that due to ignorance.

I took upon my sister’s soft corner for short people; I amused myself on others’ inability to decide fast; I criticized my husband for his choice of English dictionary.

I did all these until I realized the folly of it. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs and trusts. When people searched blogs for true travel experiences, I chided them saying that they are trusting on vague facts and figures.

But, when I started blogging on places to see, I expected every reader of my blog to treat me as their travel guide and wanted them to post my blog entries on social search engines that focus on travel.

I now realize that blogs on travel are great resources to learn from people who have written about their true travel experiences.

For some of the best places to visit, I like to refer It has ‘Editor’s picks’ that tells you about rare places in the world that many are not aware of. Yes, this is what I call as a true travel guide.

Another fantastic and unique feature that is not found in any other online travel guides is the facility to browse places based on the things you want to do such as wildlife viewing and horse riding.

I request you to visit just once and then decide whether it is worthy to bookmark or not.

My Bloglog changed log in details.

For quite sometime, I was not receiving any email messages from

Yesterday, I had some free time and opened it but I was surprised to find out that I was asked to log into my yahoo account.

Since yahoo has taken over, everybody was asked to log in via their yahoo account.
But my existing profile was intact and so were my contacts too.
