Sporadic at best…..

June 10, 2009

As you might have (hopefully) noticed, I am not posting quite every day right now. Tsk. Tsk. I know, I know.

We are filling our time with friends and family and soaking in being back home sweet home – with a few cheeseburgers and milkshakes and trips to Walmart thrown in. (Although, I have to say Taco Bell’s nachos were not as good as I remember them being. Bummer. Five Guys on the other hand – never disappoints. N.E.V.E.R.)

Anywrite, if you are tired of checking in and getting nada from your resident writer on vacation, you can sign up to receive an email when I write a new post. I have some posts brewing but please be patient. Remember I have 3 kids home from school and all of their friends are still in school. Yes, I know – brilliant planning. And, yet, somehow I remain shocked that NASA is not calling me for an interview. The wonders never cease.

I do hope to write more (often) soon – I especially want to finish my post on poverty in India – but I am not sure you will hear from me everyday. Don’t think for one second that I won’t miss you terribly and that I won’t cry if you don’t come back – I just might not realize it right away! 😉

In the meantime, if there is something you have just been dying to know – please feel free to ask away. (Almost) nothing is off limits.

    Well, my life is too busy right not to even THINK about sitting down at the computer everyday sooooo, your forgiven, 🙂 I’ll catch you when I get a quite moment to myself and enjoy my cup of tea. (Actually today it was milk and a piece of my 5 year olds birthday cake, but who’s looking.)

    Hi,
    Glad you’re enjoying the summer in the US.. Delhi temperatures are running 100-112 deg, routinely.
    The below link about Kerala may be helpful, as you write about poverty in India.. I thought it was thought provoking. You should plan a vacation in Kerala..to get a contrast with Northern India, and the diversity across the country.

      Kerala is the most talked about success story in India. But, the northern mountain state of Himachal Pradesh is another relatively recent one that has seen much less pubilcity (I am *not* from Himachal, so this is not a shameless plug). A UNDP report provides detailed information, if you are interested. A noteworthy footnote is that unlike Kerala, Himachal does not benefit from huge remittances from the expatriates abroad. I have always been extremely skeptical of using the physical consumption (Western?) metrics to judge the success of a society, so the article on Kerala resonates with me.

    You know, NASA hasn’t called me, either.

    Hmm.
