Lots of things happened in the week just past! We returned from Bangkok Swati has written about the very successful trip already so I will skip it.
The most significant for me was that yesterday my Thallium Heart Scan was done and the results pronounced that my heart was healthy. Now just to get that Lipid profile to normal. Wanted to write about the Thallium test in details as this was the first time I was interfaced with any of the hi-tech machines but other things always take precedence.
It also has been very very busy on the work front – an amusing quote from a prospective client (who is also a developer) which is about 80% true “Damn! you guys are so specialised that you just do the M in MVC!”
We finally took the plunge and have gone in for our first decent sized aquarium with all the accessories. It will be modeled after the amazonian river water to keep Neon, Cardinal, Glow-light and and Black Neon tetras – this means that the water will have to be made very soft and slightly acidic. Getting the water that way is going to be a slight challenge but I guess we will manage fine. I am sure that like most aquarist this will be just the first in a series of aquariums. I see adding at least a couple more in next 12 months.
Today early morning we went for a dual purpose field trip with some members of BNHS, Napgur. First we met up with a group of aero modellers who have been flying remote controlled aircrafts for past 20 years and were enthralled by their flying skills. Aasim is totally in love with the aircrafts, more relevant for me was the fact that several members affirmed that the small and cheap battery powered models do indeed work and thus one need not spend too much to start now.
We later continued to trip as a bird walk and spotted two birds which I have not seen in Nagpur before – The yellow wattled lapwing and the collared dove, yes there are pictures and I will be posting them at my site soon. Subscribe to the RSS if you want to be updated about the postings, in fact at least for the next month I would be posting a few pictures daily. As a side note – my site saw the highest ever traffic in April conclusively proving that just Bodyscapes are not the most interesting of my works and yes Bodyscapes will indeed be back by next month end.
