Choosing contemporary upholstery fabric for dining chairs.

Generally, people don’t change the upholstery of their dining chairs, the most neglected furniture among other furniture-right? My son shops for contemporary upholstery fabric every year, unmindful of the expenses.

I should admit I chose very comfortable dining chairs that are not ideal to sit and eat. I chose matching upholstery with other living room furniture. My son likes contrasting colors arguing that it is banal to have same colors and designs in furnishings.

Nevertheless, I should appreciate his shopping skills. He knows when and where to buy upholstery fabrics that saves us a lot of money.

His friend’s circle is quite large that shapes his home decoration tastes. Still, do you think it is necessary to change the upholstery every year?

Real Estate boom in Coimbatore.

When I moved to Madras after my marriage in 1985, Coimbatore was not a big city that refuse to develop in spite of its various advantages offered to industrialists.

The real estate prices were abysmally low then. Now, after more than 25 years, the land prices are matching the heights of Western Ghats. Middle class people like me can't hope to own a piece of land anymore.

Coimbatore is the most sought after place for retirees because of its climate and several tourist attractions. Those who were wise to invest in real estate in the early years of this millennium would have harvested substantial profits.

I have identified a property, a bit far away from the city. If all goes well, I may end up buying it within 30 days.

Flowers that represent spring better.

I was taken aback by the full bloom of springtime flowers in Mettupalayam. I generally see them only further up the Western Ghats but this year, it seemed Bluebottle and Dianthuses (image below) have chosen to spread to bottom of their hilly homes.

I was born and brought up at the foot of majestic Western Ghats and I learned to name several wild flowers as well as springtime flowers that are mercilessly tied together by florists. I hate when flowers are plucked to decorate concrete jungles. I firmly believe flowers lose their cheer when they are put in bottles and jars.

I know I would be scorned by the world of flower lovers but so be it. I understand florists’ job and I appreciate sincerely their sense of color combinations while arranging flowers in a bouquet.

I am madly in love with Dianthuses and Bluebottle  (see below) which is also known as Cornflower. To me, no other flowers represent spring better than Dianthuses and Bluebottle.

Lose weight naturally without side effects.

Lose weight naturally without side effects.
Natural weight loss is not all that complicated. A little of knowledge is enough supported by putting into use of the knowledge.

Pantothenic acid is said to speed up weight loss. Vitamin B5 is chemically known as Pantothenic acid.

This is a fast food era. Even wise people are indifferent to the warnings of fast food. What is the fun ruing when it is too late to realize the harmful effects of eating unnatural food?

What You Need to Know About Vitamin B5:
Vitamin B5 is nature’s gift to us. It is effective in warding off weight gain, acne and even allergies.
In addition, Vitamin B5 is a natural remedy for:
ADD (Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder)
carpal tunnel syndrome
rheumatoid arthritis
ulcerative colitis
yeast infections

Food sources of vitamin B5 include:
·         Yogurt
·         Lentils
·         Milk
·         Broccoli
·         Whole wheat

I have noticed symptoms of deficiency of Vitamin B5 at times. I immediately go on a whole wheat diet for two days and regain Vitamin B5.

Body pillows for women chefs.

It must have been 5 years since I turned into a side sleeper from sleeping on my straight back. An unusual gift changed my sleeping style. Two lovely blue colored body pillows gifted by the previous tenant of my house (she actually left behind them) gave me so much comfort that they became my all-night companions, one on each side of me.

I have seen these full length (well almost full length) body pillows in maternity hospitals where they are called pregnancy pillows. I believe they give support to expecting mothers.

What you are seeing here is a body pillow with suede cover which in my opinion has the softest texture and also rich in appearance. Can you believe if I say I have machine washed it over 50 times?

I know hugging a full length body pillow is not a pleasant sight but who cares how I look when I am blissfully sleeping. Women, who are on their legs for several hours a day, would find ultimate comfort in body pillows.

Hmmm… snooooze!

Why CSK failed against Pune Warriors?

Chennai Super KingsThe mercurial Chennai Super (?) Kings again disappointed millions of its fans. They lifted themselves in one cricket match but dropped into an abyss in the next match.

I thought they assumed Pune Warriors to be weak side and changed their team composition which brought their downfall.

Instead of replacing non-performers, CSK team management dropped Bollinger, their most committed player for the past two years.

In addition, I think Dhoni cannot implement the same batting strategy in all matches. He should change it according to the venue, opposition bowlers' strength and weather conditions.

I am pretty impressed with the all round performance of Rajasthan Royals. They are likely to be this year's IPL champion.

If muscle building is important to you, know about Hexaghen.

Taking a deep breath, I slouched deep in the couch and went about reading the Sunday dose of health related articles published in the newspaper. When I completed the first article, I realized I took a heavy dosage of hexaghen-a testosterone supplement. I mean the information about hexaghen, IGF-1 (Insulin Growth factor) testosterone was too much to ingest in a short time.

Personally speaking, I am not in favor of muscle building supplements. I would depend only on vegetables and meat for building muscles or anything for that matter. My body would take exactly what it needs from the food I take to keep me moving.

However, for some people, living means more than ‘keep moving’. Naturally, vitamins and hormone supplements would help them to get their desired physical shape. Men (not women definitely) with flat stomach and robust shoulders exude health.

Though there are about 90 steroid boosters (Yes, visit, a testosterone supplements review sites to know in detail) in the market, after reading all the information regarding hexaghen, I believe it is ranked among the top 5 in this category.

World's rare soup recipes.

I love soups-do you? I love to taste exotic soups of different nations. But I hate making them because most of the ingredients mentioned in soup recipes are not available locally.

That is why, whenever I visit a restaurant, I first look up for soup items and order something that I have not tasted yet.

So, what I am going to with a range of wonderful soup recipes if I never attempt to make a soup? Here, I am sharing with you a web site on soup recipes exclusively.

A new recipe that looked appetizing to me in it is a potato-celery recipe. (see, celery is a rarity in Madras). Visit for a big range of recipes.

Would you invite me if you cook it?

Natural remedy to environmental allergies.

The doctor from America did not believe me when I told him there are a few natural remedies for certain allergy attacks. There is no need to take any antihistamine.

I cited an article in the Internet about how a herb known as 'Stinging Nettle' proves to be alternate cure for environmental allergies. The extract of Stinging Nettle are sold in capsule form.

He asked me whether I have tried the method for which I told him I am not allergic to environment.

Stock sitting is exciting.

Trading shares online is what I call is stock sitting because the moment when you bought a share or two as soon as the stock market bell rang, you keep watching its price till the close of market-right?

The watching of ticker screen is exciting as you see a hectic movement of prices that is indicated by the rapid change of blue and red colors on screen.

Sometimes, after I bought a share, watching its price movement seemed as though I was willing it to reach my target price.

Making small profits every now and then coupled with a few losses of course. However, the overall picture is in green color thus far.

I intend to learn technical analysis and decoding the chart.
