Congratulations IWTGB on finding a full time job you love, I hope it stays that way and that you get plenty annual leave to go visit India. Now go pat yourself on the back again, you deserve it, completeing your studies with distinction and bringing up a family is no mean feat. Well done
Jyoti Da what a prospect, all that free time!
For some, who've made work their life, the prospect of retirment comes as a shock to the system, thoughts of "what am I going to do to fill my time" are paramount in the mind.
But you have so many interests and friends I doubt if that will be a problem for you. Then there's all those films to watch...............
My father retired 4 years ago, he retired in May at 58 years old, on completing his first summer as a pensioner, he commented that it had been the best summer he had had since leaving school, it was onwards and upwards from there.
He has no idea where he found the time to work, he keeps himself busy studying for a mathematics degree, gardening, jogging and doing marathon walks like this one a 43 mile day trip to Cape Wrath
Vandy glad to hear the missus is well and back to her old self. I hope you both enjoy your new home.
Hyderbadi, all the best for 2010, I hope things get better in USA and that translates into more secure times for you and family.
2009 was a tight year for us too, flowerbulbs took a financial pounding due to the strong Euro and the financial downturn. We are both on short time for the forseeable future, meaning I'm working for 6 months a year instead of 9 months. Ho hum, every cloud has a silver lining of course, and you can all guess what we'll do with the extra time this affords us.
We've already had a month in Gujarat and come Feruary we are heading to Goa for two months, chilling on the beach at Patnem with a couple of side trips to Dandeli and Madekeri.
After which, it's back home to the 'home sod" for a few weeks with my folks in Sutherland, Scotland. Life goes on!!!
We treated ourselves for Christmas and bought a Bluray home entertainment system and a BIG HD television. WOW, we watched the BBC series about Yellowstone National Park on Bluray disc it was incredible, the picture quality superb and 5.1 surround.
Have any of you visited this amazing park?? I would love to go.
I got Mrs Cyber a disc about wolves in the same park (she is facinated by wolves), this time filmed in Imax HD, should be lovely to watch, unfortunately the brains of Britain here blew up the Bluray player (during a firmware update) and it's now back in the shop for repairs, what a numpty.
We were so looking forward to watching movies and as the thing is hooked up to the internet watching all our fav music videos on youtube (Viera link)
The new years celebration here in The Netherlands was the usual cacophany of sound and light as a few billion Euros worth of fireworks went off at 12 o'clock.
It's been a cold winter and the wind to quote my mother "would cut the legs fae under ye" at times. Going to work on a scooter has been "exciting"
So to all tree dwellers I hope 2010 is good to you, and this global mess we find ourselves in is soon just an unpleasant memory.
