    I’m so glad we live in a country where a person can only be president for 8 years! I know in this case it will be 8 years too many, but imagine what would happen if Georgie were king?

    I visited your blog after a long time, and now I’m wondering why I didn’t check in more frequently.

    The photo + articles are a brilliant touch. In another life, you could’ve been a journalist you know. (Alas, you don’t believe in reincarnation, or has India changed that yet??)

    In any case, thanks for putting all this stuff from your head out into the web. Best to Yoomi.

    Hey , can anyone tell the exact date and month of the forthcoming Presidents’ elections in the USA ?
    I know that they are in 2008, but when ?

    Since 1845, with the passage of Title 3, Section 1 of the United States Code, presidential elections have taken place on “the first Tuesday of November.” Actually, that simple, common descriptor of election day is not quite accurate. By statute, the polls fall “on the Tuesday next after the first Monday in November, in every fourth year succeeding every election of a President and Vice President.” Thus, on years when the first Tuesday falls on the first of the month, election day is actually the second Tuesday.

    This year, polling-place votes will be cast on Tuesday, 4 November; but millions of Americans, including this one, will have cast absentee ballots by mail well before then.

Blasts from the Past

Man Up!
Man up you pussy!

Talking Turkey
how to cook a perfect turkey in half the time

Filial Piety Awareness Day

... because everyday is Mother's Day.


America Dreaming Small
American Dream
