Friends: I aplogize for my protracted absence from blogging, especially since Blogger as been a pain in the ass for the past week. Last night when I tried to post, frustration almost made me pull my hair wild. I have my fingers crossed if this post goes through on the first attempt.
My move to Wordpress is almost in its final stages, I finally have a hosting service and hope they will have me setup soon, once fired up, all I need to do is transfer my testing site to the new host that should be easy. BUT then I have my fingers crossed with blogger.com if it will allow me an uneventful FTP transfer. Hopefully the next post on this site would be to announce the new URI of my blog.
According to a report appearing in Dawn, at a meeting held in the office of Naib Nazim Tariq Hasan, Tariq G Malhanens, the representative of Chicago City Government, said that on Hasan’s desire, Karachi and Chicago were being declared as sister cities.....
Isn't it surprising when you accidently find that some other person happens to have the same Birth date as yours. Well I was surprised to find that Shirazi and myself having the same Date of Birth which is 5th April [mind you I have no idea if our year coincides; PS- dont wanna know as I think one of us; more likely myself; might end up to be older ;) ]
This reaction is strange as there are a few billion people on Earth and only 365 days to be born on so I wish the rest of the couple million or so folks having the DOB on 5th April a very Happy Birthday.
Poverty breeds the evil in our society; it brings out beggars and also the thieves out onto the streets to survive. Thatta Kedona (Village Dolls) is an organization which I feel is a remarkable achievement of a select few visionary individuals to be able to realize this problem and have come together to create change for the poor living in Pakistan.
This organization simply allows the poor to be creative and use their limited skills combined with the limited resources around them to create a piece of art. These beautiful toys and dolls are dressed in traditional Pakistan clothes and are simply spectacular.
Have a look at Thatta Kedona to better understand this noble cause.
Friends - For now I have only designed the banner header and have not worked on other items but I would really appreciate if you would be kind enough to look at the new banner and the theme? I feel it is important for me to get feedback from my blogging friends, does it appeal or would some other banner/theme would be better suited.
I would appreciate if you would be honest and comment sincerely, I may or may not heed to the comments ;) but still would love to hear them and maybe it might help me evolve the new blog.
