Hi my dear blogger friends, how are you doing?? now a days I became bit lazy, didn't even update my blog.
Look at this video, how talkative this lil girl is, Oh boy!!! this younger generation is too smart, at that age (of course even now :)) I don't know how to respond back to others spontaneously, I really got surprised to the way she is talking.

I guess you already know about our banging neighbour, She created a big mess again and our Apartment manager requested us to vacate our by next week we may move to a house in our next block with in the same apartment.

Hurray!!!!!! I got a new one

Yes yes yes ....I got a new key board for my Lappy.... Am I sounding mad, getting over excited for petty things??? No, If you would have worked with a keyboard like this one, even for a day, you would have known my joy. Imagine how you may feel in having the shoe of your exact size, after running for an hour wearing your lower numbered one.

The thought of this new keyboard striked in my DH's mind when he had a very tough time to understand my messages in Yahoo IM. That night he ordered for a new one and he himself got it fixed. My Son who is the reason for this whole story, when I am busy in the kitchen, he climbed on to the dinning table to reach the laptop and got surprised with the new look and his fingers soon got ready to pluck a key, My sixth sense suddenly said to me to 'look at him, look at him....' I peeped through the kitchen arch and shouted at him and I donno what his lil brain thought of me, he left that place giving a pity look at me that says 'chal mommy, ab tho ham ney chod dhiyaa!!!!!'

What's inside '100% NATURAL'

How many of us are keen in refferring to the nutrirition labels of the products we buy? well coming to me, I came to know about this concept of Carbs, trans fat etc when I was diagonised with Gestational diabetes during my pregnancy. I was suppossed to opt for the foods that have less carbs and more protein I started to look at the labels but now I rarely look at them.

Though we look at the labels, we may not aware of some hidden facts, May be its a business trick that says as '100% natural' to get their products into our hands or may be some other reason, but finally we will be victims. For example,

Take chicken. The average American eats about 90 pounds of it a year, more than twice as much as in the 1970s, part of the switch to lower-fat, lower-cholesterol meat proteins. But roughly one-third of the fresh chicken sold in the U.S. is "plumped" with water, salt and sometimes a seaweed extract called carrageenan that helps it retain the added water. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says chicken processed this way can still be labeled "all natural" or "100% natural" because those are all natural ingredients, even though they aren't naturally found in chicken.
Producers must mention the added ingredients on the package -- but the lettering can be small: just one-third the size of the largest letter in the product's name. If you're trying to watch your sodium to cut your risk of high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke, it pays to check the Nutrition Facts label. Untreated chicken has about 45 to 60 mgs of sodium per four-ounce serving. So-called enhanced or "plumped" chicken has between 200 and 400 mgs of sodium per serving, almost as much as a serving of fast-food french fries.
Wheat bread." This is a meaningless term, since almost all bread is made with wheat. Some manufacturers add to the illusion by using a brown wrapper or darkening bread with brown sugar or molasses. The more healthful stuff is whole wheat, which includes the outer bran and the wheat germ inside, good sources of nutrients and fiber. Check the ingredients. If the first one listed is "enriched wheat flour," you aren't getting much whole grain.
Super water. The Center for Science in the Public Interest sued Coca-Cola Co. earlier this year over claims on its VitaminWater beverages. The center argued that the drinks -- with names like "defense," "rescue," "energy" and "endurance" -- are mainly sugar water with 125 calories per bottle.
