Wouldn't you want to buy something like this? When things get hard, just press the 'Easy' button!

Here's what I mean..

Boston Public Gardens

Home to the "Make Way for Ducklings" sculpture, the Boston Public Gardens are unique. With the highrises as a backdrop and a beutiful lake in its midst, the gardens have a delightful mix of trees and flowering seasonals. Not just a 'A must visit', but a must 'spend a lot of time there' place! Posted by Picasa

What's going on?

First the Tsunami (South, East Asia), then the deluge in Mumbai (India), then Katrina and other hurricanes (USA), then this earthquake (Indian Subcontinent) and the mudslide and hurricane (Central America).
Did I miss any?

And we still have 80 days left in this year!

Add to it all the manmade disasters in Iraq, Bali etc..

Reminds me of a line from King Lear:

“As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods. They kill us for their sport.”

This has got to be the most disastrous year in recent memory.

Here are some nice quotes I got from Neville’s blog:

Good things come to those who wait, better things come to those who try.

Dig the well before you are thirsty.

A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.

Group Photo

Told him not to move! Group photo taken at Swamy's place. We gathered there to give a farewell to Abhijit (guy in Red and white stripes). He is going to Memphis. It was a lot of fun with him around. We will miss you Abhi. The party was a lot of fun with great music and a lot of dance! Great food too.

Online Banking..

CNN had a piece on online banking the other day. Seems like the trend is catching up with a lot of people here - and why not? It doesn’t hurt to earn 3%-4% interest on cash that’s sitting in your checking account gathering dust. No matter the amount.

2 of the specific ones that was mentioned in the article were ING Direct (3.4%) and Emigrant Direct (4%).

BTW – if any of you are interested in opening an account at ING-Direct, they will credit you account with $25 if you are referred by an existing customer. So drop me a line and I’d be glad to do the needful.
