Wish you all a good one. WE are hitting road friday early morning, covering both the countries over the weekend.
Unlike our CEO, who only wished July4th ( what it takes you to add 2 more words in your email sir? and in the process win many hearts) I want to wish everyone.
Have a great weekend dear friends.
Happy 144th Birthday Canada! God bless Canada! God Bless USA!
see you guys monday nite..
With Indian media spending tons of ink and digital space on a celebrity pregnancy, this thought from the back burner came to the front burner.
it is kind of sensitive..the question I have is…why expecting a baby is considered starting family? isn’t the couple already a family? kids make the family?..can’t get my head around it. why birth control is called family planning? ( to me the planning leading up to making that commitment is family planning)
2 people bonded by love in a beautiful relationship, committed to each other- that is family. kids add to the family. We celebrate our wedding anniversary as our family birthday, not the day my first child is born.
somebody explain this to me…it could also be my limited knowledge of english ( and its nuances)
Thursday morning, conversation in the car while waiting at the crossing right outside the school, for the crossing guard to clear the way.
DD(dear daughter): Oh she is very old.
DS( dear son): who? the crossing guard lady?
DD: yeah, she is very old.
MM(mama me): No, she is not that old. She can still walk, and she is helping kids to cross the street every school day morning and afternoon. she is quite able.
DD: but her hair is white and skin all wrinkled mama
**now wait this gem**
DS: C, mama will be old too. That day is coming soon, really soon.
At that DD went silent, MM laughed out loud. as he stepped out from the car to school, I asked him still laughing “why did you say that?” he replied ‘ I don’t know, but you are getting old”
good weekend girls…. ” That day is coming soon, really soon”
That was a good game. Tim Thomas, what a goalie! he was like a tall and wide brick wall!
some trivia: how Canadian is Boston Bruins team?
Bruins: 17 canadians, 3 Americans,6 International( captain Chara is Slovenian nationality)
Canucks: 17 Canadians,6 Americans,9 International
Congratulations Bruins! until next time..
Suman, pass our congrats to Tuls. Kids even told our neighbours that mama’s friend’s son is cheering for Boston because he is from there.
“girls – i do hope you liked khalnaayak – sanjay, jackie and madhuri !! – now that is a movie i would love to watch with you ladies when we do meet – naughty, mischievious, action, romance all combined – tell me – here’s a quiz – which character would you support in real life? J or S?” and why?
[edited the title to add focus on the character not the actors]
Bruins tied the game at 3-3. Alright, we have the cup on Wednesday night for game 7. Go canucks!
Suman and I,
How can we? Tonite is game 6 Stanley cup finals Canucks at Boston Bruins. I am Canucks fan, Bruins is her home team.
For now Canucks lead the series 3-2 and we win today’s game, Stanley Cup is ours- game over!!.
I was not into NHL or sports in general for that matter. Being mother to 2 kids helps- now wonder I am bigger fan or them. I don’t know all the rules but son explains to me. Similarly Suman get updates from her son Tuls, but I don’t think she is hooked like me.
Winning is always important to me, then and now, no matter what others say. Tonite I will be sitting on the edge of the couch ,watching…Stanley Cup will be in the building while they play,C’mon that Cup belong to Canadian team this year..Go Canucks Go!! God bless.
God, please don’t stretch it to another game..I am so short on time
Tad late(giving into your mean demands )..hope you had a good one!
This is one of my favorite songs and Madhuri dances like a Pari (fairy) . Hope one day we can dance to this song together.
Of togetherness, love, happiness, ups and downs, achievements, disappointments, little moments, big fat moments..
As you celebrate your 10th anniversary, wishing you these two special couples a life time of happiness. Happy Anniversary UL & Manu, Laksh & K.
It feels like yesterday we 3 girls took Ul out for lunch before she set off to India to get married to her prince charming. Sort of a bachelorette party, we went to Dosa hut, food was good, we had the most amazing and entertaining girly talk..laughed till our tummies (really) hurt.
I have looked up to Ul and Manu always. To me, theirs is a fairy tale on earth right in front of my eyes. Even when she tells me they have their downs in life, I almost refuse to believe. They are so much in love with each other, when Ul talks about Manu, she always blushes like a like a new bride. It fills my heart to see you both together. May God continue to bless you, that is my prayer for you. Wishes from hubby and kids, as well.
Ul introduced me to laksh(virtually..3-4 yrs back)..I have never met her and K, but they have become part of life. Laksh’s posts on family and K are like thayir saadam..you can never have enough it, so full of love (and romance). May you grow in love day by day. God bless you Laksh and K.
Have searched long and hard for the right songs to mark this special occasion. None of the hindi/mallu/tamil songs did justice. Hope you like this one.
