Boast about your Bose AE2 headphone.

Till date I regret having missed buying a bose ae2 headphone by just a few hours. I generally don’t search for anything because I really don’t want anything. Still, I end up buying several gadgets a year because I am an impulsive buyer, not an informed shopper.

I have friends all over the world. They use to share their purchases, travel experience and even restaurant visits. When I look at their shared images of products, I buy just like that without thinking whether I want it or not.

That is how I bought a Shure SRH440 headphone. I love the comfort it gives but when I saw the Bose Ae2, my face fell. I have heard about Bose brand of entertainment gadgets; I could have easily boasted about my purchase online.

Oh, well, may be I would find someone ready to exchange their Bose headphone with my Shure headphone.

Indian Vedic Astrology-what do you know about?

I read once somewhere that the Indian astrology is based on the theory of fate. I felt the urge to disagree but restrained myself. Instead, I wanted to know the truth behind such a concept. I did my research and found a suitable piece of information.

 The good and the bad actions of the past life determine your fate or Karma of your present life, and the actions of your present life determine your future Karma. According to Indian astrology a person is born at that place, on that day and on that moment when his individual fate is in perfect mathematical harmony with the progress of the stars in heaven.

However it does not preach total dependence on fate. Astrology lets you know what you were born with, what your possibilities are, the limitations, your strong points and your drawbacks. What type of life partners and professions suit you and to expect is also indicated. It also prescribes various remedial measures to ward off the bad effects and to enhance the good results. Astrology is your roadmap of destiny. However your fate is in your hands. The scriptures guide us by telling us what is good and what is bad; what to do and what not to do; how to do and how not to do. You are given a piece of land and the seeds to sow. How much effort to put in to it, what amount of manure and water to add and when how to reap the produce is your job.

After that it is you who have to act using your knowledge intelligence, discrimination and experience. Fate is like a game of cards where you cannot help the cards that have been dealt to you but how to play them is in your hands. You may get good cards but if you play badly you will lose and you may get bad cards and still may win if you play carefully. Don’t blame the roadmap if you get drunk, drive badly and have an accident!

Why the whole family should eat together?

Eating together is a near forgotten etiquette these days. When I interviewed 10 people from varying walks of life, I could only deduce this: “No time”.

Is the entire world is so self centered? Is it only in cities or the rural people also are following suit?

Recent studies have shown that not only do children like to sit down at the dinner table and eat a meal with their parents, but they are more likely to eat a well-balanced, nutritious meal when they do.  But with the hectic lives we seem to lead these days, getting the family all together in the same place at the same time can be a difficult chore. Between work schedules, after-school activities, errands, and the like, it seems we have less and less time.   But with a few simple ideas and some planning, meal time can be an enjoyable and treasured family time.

Designate no less than one night per week to have a sit-down meal with your family.  Sunday nights are usually a good choice for this because you have more time to relax and the weekend chores have been completed. 

Involve your children in the meal planning and preparation.  This gives them a strong sense of self and the foundation for a lifetime of healthy meal planning and preparation. 

Make sure the television is off, and make it a rule that all phone calls go to voice mail or the answering machine during the meal.  Take this time to visit with one another and enjoy one another's company.  This is a great time to reconnect and find out what events happened this week.

 Take your time eating, and teach your children how to do the same in the process.  Eating slowly is a healthy habit.  Don't jump up and start clearing dishes and putting things away until everyone is done eating and talking. 

On those days that you can't sit down as a family, try to make a habit of sitting down and chatting with them while they are eating, instead of rushing around catching up on the chores.  This shows them you're interested and that you care and want to be and involved and important part of their every day life. 

Seems easier said done-eh?

The best gadget for a podcaster.

Though my husband taught me a great deal about sound recording, he admitted he himself is not all that comfortable handling audio recorders with the exception of tascam because of its friendly interface.

He once showed this (see below) portable digital audio recorder to one of his film music director’s friends who took no time in ordering a couple of them. This solid state audio recorder from Tascam is very ideal for newspaper reporters and audio bloggers who call themselves as podcasters.

May be I can think of becoming a podcaster one day though I believe their days are taken over by video bloggers aka Vloggers.

Do you know that this beauty runs for more than 17 hours on just 2 AA batteries?
Do you know that it delivers CD quality sound?

Check them out today.

Thinking of migrating to Chennai?

Did you notice the cost of dining in air conditioned restaurants in Madras aka Chennai? Due to increase in luxury tax (I hope I am right), we have to pay through our nose while waiting in the air conditioned comfort for the food or even a coffee to arrive.

We pay more but the nothing changes in restaurants. They remain shabby all the same serviced by rarely courteous staff.

Nothing changes in Madras; the heat, the dust, the IRCTC web site, the quality of civic amenities, the behaviour of people sitting on the power and the list goes on.

Chennai's most unfriendly climate forces us to seek a/c cover at every opportunity. The Government noticed this mandatory living requirement and laid its hands to fill their coffers.

The railways have increased the ticket fare for a/c class, but one look at the coaches would even keep bugs away. They are infested with pests to the core.

Oh well, yeh mera Bharat mahan.

How to use Twitter effectively

I think I have read about 14 e-books on Twitter marketing. In spite of that, my twitter traffic remains the same which is two visitors a week!

Many new users of Twitter are constantly asking how they can use the site more effectively for their business and since the site has grown into an Internet mega monster that is globally known and talked about, they are right to ask. The fact is Twitter is a fantastic tool for your IM business.

Internet relationships are very different from actual personal relationships. They are based primarily on like, know, and trust. Many people are reaching out to others through social network websites like Twitter, Facebook and many others.

If you are new to Twitter you may not realize that you can create your personal or business brand and virtually dominate your market, simply by building a list of followers.

Hey, I have one ebook on how to use Twitter effectively. I can give it away for free. Do you want it?
