Girls and Boys

Fathers day is coming up and listen to what what one father had to say, from his very own experience in bringing up a boy and a girl.

When I throw my little girl a ball, it will hit her in the nose. When I throw my little boy a ball, he will try to catch it - then it will hit him in the nose.

When we dress our little girl in her Sunday best, she’ll look just as pretty when we make it to the church an hour later. We dress our boy in his Sunday best, and he’ll somehow find every muddy puddle from our home to the church, even if we're driving there.

If our girl accidentally burps, she will be embarrassed. If our boy accidentally burps, he will follow it with a dozen fake ones and produce all sorts of noises.

Boys grow their fingernails long because they’re too lazy to cut them. Girls grow their fingernails long so that they can dig them into a boy’s arm.

By the age of six, boys will stop giving their dad kisses. By the age of six, girls will stop giving their dad kisses unless dad bribes them with candy or toys.

A little girl will pick up a stick and look in wonderment at what God has made. A little boy will pick up a stick and immediately turn it into a gun.

When girls play with Barbie dolls, they like to dress them up and play house with them. When boys play with Barbie dolls, they like to blow them up, cut off various limbs and play war.

Girls are attracted to boys from an early age. At the same age, boys are attracted to dirt.

Girls will cry if someone dies in a movie. Boys will cry if you turn off the DVD after they’ve watched the same movie three times in a row.

As time goes by, girls turn into women. During the same time, boys turn into BIGGER boys.

In Delhi

I arrived into Delhi this morning - and felt just at home; stepping foot on one's own country is a nostalgic and homely feeling.  Delhi is hot and it was as if entering into an oven while coming out of the airport. In a way the hot weather is good - it save me time going to the beach to and maintaining my tan :-)

So far, I've been doing OK on my Hindi and am able to communicate. We will be visiting other interesting places in the next couple of days.  One thing I need to do is start taking pictures.

Dear readers,

I am on a two week summer vacation and will have limited internet access. Hence, our postings will be irregular until I get back on my feet.

Have a good time.

The great big beautiful tomorrow

Born to be wild

This is supposed to be an all time hit 'travel song'.

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never want to die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Golf Doctor

A doctor stopped a nurse to brief her on a patient's condition. "This patient is a fellow physician and my favorite golf partner. His injury is serious and I fear he will not be able to play golf again unless you follow my orders exactly."

The doctor then began listing orders:

"You must give an injection in a different location every twenty minutes followed by a second injection exactly five minutes after the first. He must take two pills at exactly every hour followed by one pill every fifteen minutes for eight hours. He must drink no more and no less than ten ounces of water every twenty-five minutes and must void between.

"Soak his arm in warm water for fifteen minutes then place ice for ten minutes and repeat over and over for the rest of the day. Give range of motion every thirty minutes. He requires a back rub and foot rub every hour. Feed him something tasty every hour. Be cheerful and do whatever he asks at all times.

"Chart his condition and vital signs every twenty minutes. You must do these things exactly as I ordered or his injury will not heal properly, and he will not able to play golf well."

The nurse left the doctor and entered the patient's room. She was greeted by anxious family and an equally anxious patient. All asked the nurse what the doctor had said about the patient. The nurse started, "The doctor said that you will live." Then quickly reviewing the orders, the nurse added, "But you will have to learn a new sport."

Medical Terms

When you enter various medical fields, you will need to learn another language, so to speak: the language of medical terminology. The subject matter is interesting - learning various medical terms as they relate to anatomy, physiology, pathology, etc. It is the method of learning that leans toward a self-study format. After all, learning medical terminology boils down to pure, unadulterated memory work. These days, we can take an on line medical terminology class and learn effectively. Few medical terms that I learned:

Unused riches

Once there was a miser who has a large amount of gold. He melted it down in a lump and buried it in a pit. He was very happy that he had hidden his gold safely. So, he kept gloating over his treasure almost all the time. He used to visit the spot regularly where he had hidden the gold.

One of his friends was keeping an eye on him and one day he discovered the secret. And one night he went to the pit and dug the gold lump for himself.

During his next visit to the spot, the miser lamented on finding no gold over there. Hearing his cries, one of his neighbours came to him and asked what the matter was

The miser replied, "I am ruined. Someone has stolen my treasure."

The neighbor consoled him and said, "Your money was lying useless. Now, at least it will be of use to someone."

Moral: Unused riches are useless

At home

Last couple of days I've been down with slight ache on my back - most probably due to all the travel and driving. Took some medication and applied a balm. This morning, I was debating whether to drive all the way to the church or attend church close by; finally I decided to go driving.

Once there, before I could say anything to anyone, I was voted to do the censor today - and I did. Right after the service, I returned home. The rest of the day, I am going to just stay calm and quite indoors.  It's raining out here and the nature is excited to receive all those water droplets. I am watching the rain through my window.
