Sailing Across the Lewisville

Yesterday I got the opportunity to sail a boat with two new friends. These two gentlemen are retired and trying to pursue their hobbies more frequently now. I just tagged along with them on the big boat and it was a pretty good learning experience both in terms of sailing and otherwise. For one thing sailing with modern sailboats is not so tough, everything is fixed right and so long as you know what you are doing one can sail pretty efficiently. There is no need for brute force to tie down the mast or sails, there is no need for special technique because things have been made easy by smart inventors of these boats and accessories.

Well we set sail from one of the few FREE docks/ boat ramps on Lewisville Lake's shoreline and bounced across the waters for sometime before we were able to catch some strong winds and hit the high waters. The boat moves pretty fast if the wind is right and it often gets scary too. Since it was my first experience sailing a modern water craft, I was all eyes and ears to learn the intricacies of what is to be done.

There were occasions when the wind dropped and we just drifted along without being able to move. And then while crossing under a bridge I thought our mast almost touched the underside of the concrete structure, but luckily we passed without an incident.

Overall the day was great for sailing and I have a brand new experience to talk about now.

Better Video Calls with faceVision!!!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of faceVsion Technology USA. All opinions are 100% mine.


My country of residence is different from that of my parents and sister. The fastest way to be in touch with them was via telephone until the internet explosion happened. Now I can talk to them, face to face through video chat over the internet. Applications such as Skype, Yahoo messenger, google talk, etc have broken the image barrier and brought families together. But sometimes video chat via Skype can be quite frustrating with grainy images and garbled voice. I have tried and tested several different video cams available in the market, several of them even promise HD quality images but they fail when it comes to delivery. These cameras are good no doubt but when it comes to working over the internet they somehow don't provide the desired quality.

I recently came across a new series of video cams that promise to improve the video chatting experience over the internet. I am pretty sure that faceVsion will make the image quality lot better which will enable us to get as real a picture of the person we are talkign to. The main drawback in video chat with other video cams I have experienced is the low picture quality. This is often frustrating because I long to see the faces of my loved ones and the gadgets don't support me. Now with FV touchcam N1 I am quite confident that this will be a thing of past. This new technology offers a chance to make true HD quality Skype video calls. Another scenario where I can think of using this technology is when I am talking to my long distance business associates. They will feel a lot better when they see my face, when voice alone can't convey the entire message.

This technological gadget FV touchcam N1 is the first internet streaming true HD webcam specially built for Skype video calls. The gadget has other applications such as an application known as
faceVision on line store where users can shop using the camera.

Now is the best time to get your dream gadget and talk to your family, friends, clients and associates using HD quality video technology. Subscribe to the FV ExpressCombo and derive the benefits.

Back in DFW

Well... it was a fantastic and rejuvenating vacation in India. There has been so many changes in my home town. For one thing the city has been renamed to Bengaluru from Bangalore, this gives it a strong local flavor which is obviously resented by immigrants who have made the city their home and continue to dominate over the locals. But hey! who cares... it is the locals who decide what to call their city... Anyway there has been quite a radical change in the state of roads in the city and generally in most places I visited... Mysore, Nanjangud, Kanakapura, etc. It was nice to catch up with old friends and family after a gap of over 2 years and thankfully nobody had forgotten me.

Now that I am back to where I officially belong I gotta get back to work and school doing what I am supposed to do. Will continue to blog about the numerous things happening in my life and what I feel about the happenings in the world...
