The Mathematics of my Independence: Happy Independence Day!

Porn-sites Banned then Unbanned – A Collective Sigh of Relief.

Anand’s Caricatures and Parodies are Quirky, Snarky, Malarkey!

Until this morning I hadn’t told wifey that I’ve enrolled for the Blogging101 course. This morning, I had to. When she called me for our second tea of the morning for the third time with her contralto voice having gone soprano and saw that I … Continue reading
