Coffee-Cat

I love my coffee. Over my lifetime I don’t know how many cups of coffee I’ve had but take my word for it – it’s a lot. Over all that time coffee has gone from just something I accepted as normal to hero or villain depending on what narrative was trendy at the time. […] via …

The Social Media The Connect and The Challenge

Social Media always scared me, Thanks to BlogAdda I actually took the trouble of figuring out what it was. I do visit this blog on and off to refresh my understanding.

My association with the social media began when I was in isolation during my treatment, my only contact with the outside world was Facebook, and it kept me constant contact with my family.

Even before we look at mobile vs. web, my generation approaching 50 would have more fundamental question that really understands what the social media is all about no doubt it is defined as a form of electronic communication that allowed users to create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages and other content.

Let’s look at social media, I mean Media is an instrument on communication, like newspapers, radio, or whatever, if so, and then social media becomes social instrument of communication. In my younger days we called it gossip.

Nothing remains as it was. If you know this, you can
begin again, with pure joy in the uprooting.”
― Judith MintyLetters to My Daughters

Looks, like Indiblogger has decided, that the New year should bring fresh beginning that includes a new location. Moving to a new city involves a process, a little research,  that in my way of working would mean create a check list. I have my check list right at the end.

Moving into a new city, is dicey I mean one would not want to jump into a pool without testing the waters, for us, of course Bangalore is a known territory but visiting a place and living there are definitely different.

Traveller Kid,

Before I even tackle the questions posted in the happy hour, what  would be a vacation. To me, a period of suspension of work, study or other activities. It is usually used for a rest, recreation, or travel and of course a holiday.

Sri Badrinath Temple

A road trip?

That?s what we are planning all the way to Badrinath.

A road trip is essentially a journey via automobiles, sometimes impromptu; it could involve some spiriting activity.

Before come into to the checklist of must have let me go through the stages of deciding what the must have?s are.

? Where are we going on the trip?

? When are we going?

? How long are we going?

? Who are our travel companions?

Very often travel instead of broadening the mind merely lengthens conversation!

A road trip needs to be planned well in advance. With at least a list of 10 places that we could like to see,

The next phase would be deciding the stop over?s, after which the travel…
