Three Different Birds - one common location

We say India is a land where unity in diversity exists, but I think this concept is borrowed from nature. Once I heard someone say that "According to Charles Darwin it is survival of the fittest and competition in nature. I believe there is cooperation also in nature." Of course that person was talking about mixed agriculture/ cultivation of fruit trees of different species alongside each other. In this post I'd like to present three pictures shot at Santa Cruz Beach in California. The first one is of sea gulls that fly in and out of the ocean hunting for fish and live on the rocks and hills close to the beach. The next one is of pigeons which I am sure were introduced to this place by someone, these thrive on handouts from benevolent people who come and drop off corn, rice and other grains for them to feast on. Then there are the crows and ravens which thrive off the garbage, they are the scavengers of nature. Without crows it would be difficult for 100% natural degradation of wastes. Anyway I thought it was interesting that these three species live in the same space they don't compete with each other for food and sustenance. They all live in harmony without fighting... I wish we humans learned to live like that.

Penny Auctions gaining popularity!

Penny Auctions the new way to buy all the fancy things you ever wanted for super low prices. I recently came across a new penny auction site which is quite different from others for several reasons. The first being this is the only site to offer a separate beginners auction section where newbies can sharpen their skills. If a new registrant doesn't win within 24 hrs after registration their bids will be restored. All auctions on Deal Fun start at $0.01, so there is no need guess and second guess about the products you are interested in. There have been some unscrupulous operators in this area so I initially thought that this might be scam and not a genuine auction site. After I went through the website and noticed the products they have to offer, I am totally convinced that this is one of the best sites to buy a wide array of coveted products such as iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Laptops, LED TVs, PS3, Watches, Jewelry, Toys at super low prices. The products on this website usually get sold at over 95% or sometimes even 98% discount. This website doesn't mandate any weekly cap on winning. Their customer service officers are always there to help you and answer your queries courteously and explain things in a clear concise manner. Suppose you want the product, but you don't win, then you can use all the bids you have used and add some cash and buy this product. Now what are you waiting for, go to Deal Fun and get all the products you have always wanted but stopped for lack of money. Now money is not a problem at

Santa Cruz Beach, California

I visited Santa Cruz beach a few years ago and memories of this wonderful waterfront locale continue to haunt me. The way surfers take on the breaking waves, the sea gulls, fly around seeking food seems like they are having so much fun. We as tourists were just gawking at the surfers enjoying the water. There is a nice road with walking trail along the sea front which enabled us to get a ringside view of everything that was going on in the azure waters below. I wish I knew how to surf, I'd be checking out the surf and trying to catch a big wave. Anyway that may happen in the next birth or later in this birth if god wills. For now I just visit beautiful water front places and enjoy the beauty.

New Line of Frozen Dinners - TGI Friday's Entrees for one

This post brought to you by T.G.I. FRiDAY'S. All opinions are 100% mine.

Entrées For OneLiving alone in a different city away from home, family and friends can be quite tough on our food habits. It is boring to go out and eat in my favorite places, it is time consuming to cook and even greater pain to clean. So I end up eating frozen dinners bought from the grocery stores. Frozen dinners are not always tasteful or interesting, but I don't have much choice.

I have got concrete news that this is not the case anymore. There is a new line of Frozen Dinners from one of my favorite restaurants: T.G.I. FRiDAY'S. Aptly named T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One” this pretty much solves my frozen food problems. This is the same food from the restaurant but frozen and I can eat what I want, when I want and where I want. It is like taking my favorite restaurant with me in my backpack. The entire array of entrees from Sizzling Steak Fajitas to Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo, all of them are available.

Now as a launch offer there is a bonus to stock up on these frozen entrees. T.G.I. Friday's is running a Fun Freezer contest to encourage people like me who love our frozen entrees to create our own stylish freezers at home. The contest is simple decorate your freezer to reflect your own unique style and upload a picture on Facebook and you stand a chance to win some really cool prizes including a home theater makeover. Visit to know more.

Entrées For One

My favorite items in the T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One" line include Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo, creamy chicken pasta Carbonara, Sesame orange chicken and Loaded chicken and cheese. I am pretty sure all my new friends will start hanging out at my place because they now know that my refrigerator will be loaded with T.G.I. Friday's best entrees and they will have a wide choice of what to eat.

Road to California

I visited California in 2008 soon after coming to the US. At that time I didn't know much about this country, society, culture or politics. I fancied myself to be a tourist and tried to enjoy my visit. Roads in the US are great marvels by themselves. I enjoy taking pictures of the road, specially when it is a scenic route linking mountains or runs along the sea shore. As we drove through the mountains towards the Bay Area or Silicon Valley, I captured some of the road views from the moving car. '

Net 10 Revolutionizing Cell Phone Services

This post brought to you by Net10. All opinions are 100% mine.

The cell phone has become an essential part of our life. We can no longer afford the luxury of not having one. The cost of calling via a cell phone still remains expensive, most service providers do offer unlimited calling plans but these are quite pricey too. 

All this is set to change now with the arrival of Net10 Unlimited Plan in which you get nationwide coverage, unlimited talk, text, and data for just $50 a month. That is almost less than half of what other providers charge. This low price comes without a contract, credit check or any other additional hidden costs. You get nationwide coverage, great handsets and phenomenal savings.

Consider this you have a mobile phone from LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung; you can be talking to anyone in the country for however long you want, you can check your facebook and update twitter all on your cell phone and that too just for $50 a month. When I saw the Cute NET10 commercial I was completely taken and I immediately decided to learn more about it.

Then after a few clicks on an internet search engine, I found some Real NET10 customer reviews of the service which were very flattering. I believe this a fantastic plan for everyone who wants to be connected with his family, friends, or even business associates.

The Unlimited plan is not the only one, there is the Easy Minutes Plus plan which starts at just $15 month and then there are other plans too. As I learned more about Net10 I began to See the Light of the cell phone service. The best part is you can switch between plans each month, there is no additional charges.

Phones from Net10 start at at $15 for simple ones, and $40 for feature rich phones, and for $60 onwards you can get a full QWERTY keyboard, slider and touch screen phones.

Look up Net10 on Facebook and Twitter, become their fan and watch some video testimonials of real customers. I have embedded one for your reference.

Water - the Elixir of life

Water - The Elixir of Life 

A compound that contains just two elements
Two atoms of Hydrogen and one of Oxygen
Seems amazing nobody can live without one
The world would not exist without this essential liquid

We people don't seem to value this gift of god
We think that the water supply to our homes will never end
We wash, clean, bathe, and waste it without thinking for a second
We might be a little more respectful of this gift of god

On this day, let us make a solemn vow,
That we will utilize as little water from now,
That we will conserve it for the future starting now,
That we will share the resources we have with fellow men and animals

Remember! access to clean drinking water is a basic human right
But how many people in the world have this thought
Most people are busy living a life rather than think about water
Water maybe everywhere but very soon there wont be a drop to drink

Do we want to live in such a world?
A world where nations fight for water
Friends become enemies,
Families become feuding relatives
Brothers would kill each other for water

Young couples would not have children
because they can't afford to pay the water tax
That is when the world would come to an end....

New Font!!!

I have been working on the online platform at Fontstruct to create my own fonts. I have worked on and created about 10 different typographic designs and two image fonts or design fonts like the wingdings. This is one of the fonts I recently created and there are other works in progress which I will complete as soon as I have time, motivation and a computer with internet connection at hand. Coming together of all these factors is some sort of a challenge because at work it is impossible, at school it is difficult and the rest of the time is at home where I have to study. Anyway here is one font I recently created, you could download and use it as you please.
