Winter is crawling into town!!!

Last month I was cribbing about the searing heat which prevented me from enjoying the outdoor activities. Now I find myself ruing the rains and cold winds which are once again deterring me from going out and enjoying the bicycling trails or parks or swimming. The transformation from summer to winter was almost instant.
One day it was very hot and suddenly a thunderstorm warning came through and it rained flat out for the next two days. After that it has been mostly cloudy humid days with sparse showers which has kept me and my bicycle most indoors. I wish it would get sunny again but not as searing hot as summer.
I don't think it would get too warm because winter seems to have set in with the nip in the air. It looks like this weather will continue for quite sometime and will get colder as the months roll by.....

Hilton Head Island: A beautiful seaside getaway!!!

"Water is the elixir of life" goes the ancient saying. I find this saying especially true while traveling. Holidays to places which are located on water fronts or on islands in the high sea are much more entertaining and enjoyable than visiting deserts or dry mountainsides. One of my favorite destinations in eastern seaboard of United States is the hilton head island in South Carolina. Endowed by the natures bounty of beaches and man made attractions of rolling golf courses, comfortable hotels and numerous other interesting sights this location is one place I look forward to visiting.

Whenever I have thought of holidaying at Hilton Head island I wonder whether it would be a good investment to own a piece of hilton head real estate. A prospect that could have numerous possibilities including coming back year after year to vacation in this fantabulous beach resort.

I believe that hilton head south carolina is as good a location as any other beach resort such as Florida or California or even Galveston. I think investing in holiday property here is a worthy option because hilton head offers something attractive for every member of the family. Kids, elders, teenagers or the middle aged, everyone can enjoy the various attractions in the island.

DFW Diwali Mela 2009

Yesterday was the annual DFW Diwali Mela organized by the DFW Indian Cultural Society. We were supposed to keep a vendor booth on behalf of Sankara Eye Foundation at the event but due to the organizers oversight we couldn't do it. The organizers had double-booked the booth and we ended up being without a booth. These glitches apart the event was by far a success I would say for several reasons.

The first reason being the location, in the DFW area the maximum Indian population is in north Dallas cities of Irving, Plano, Carrollton, Frisco, etc. The event was organized in Arlington, which is about 40 miles from Plano and further from Frisco and McKinney. Nevertheless looking at the crowd it was clear that there were people from all over and even from out of state and far away.

For a change event parking was free, but the cops were by far the rudest I have ever come across in the US. They were not willing to talk, answer questions or direct us to the right location. This was kinda absurd and quite unexpected.

Anyway I guess the organizers will learn not to double book booths and get their act together next year.

Grow your business using Internet!!!

One of the most important tools for enhancing revenues and achieving growth for a business is Internet. Internet and the innumerable possibilities it offers can be both a boon as well as a bane for small businesses. It is a boon because it brings new business and helps the company expand its presence beyond the immediate geographic area. It could be quite the opposite if one were to end up with the wrong service provider. Not the internet service provider but the back end support provider.

Having a presence in the internet needs one vital thing, a great web hosting service provider. The ideal service provider will have over 99.5 percent uptime and less than 0.5 percent maintenance time. This will ensure that your website is available for prospective clients always. To find such a service provider it is good to look up the top-10 website hosting services listing on the site by geeks for people who are confused about technology and want clarifications.

What I like about the web hosting geeks site is the comprehensive information it provides about internet, website hosting, technologies and solutions. The exhaustive and informative Blog is my favorite section by far. The blog has superb articles on various aspects of website development and hosting. There is information about what to look for in a website hosting service. I love this list because it gives me comprehensive information on how to find the right service provider.

I simply say that if you are looking for solutions, information, or just tips for managing your online presence better visit the website and you will not regret it.
