It's Monday morning...

...all of us have to get into the weekly routine...but to keep me, at least, going, here's a picture of the sunrise on Saturday morning, with the promise of a beautiful weekend...

Surprisingly, the sun seems to be NEXT to the bright patch of sky! What eerie effects the monsoon gives us!

We did have a great weekend, though the political scenario and the ensuing traffic problems in Bengaluru aborted my trip to Tumkur to see the Slender Loris....politicians, the police and Bengaluru traffic ensured that I did *exactly* what I hate to do..drive 20 km to no purpose at all.

The black-shouldered kite, with the "spectacles" and those lovely feathers, is a real beauty. yathin says this one is probably a young female.

The bird kept on hopping to the next telephone pole on the road, and led us a merry chase for quite twenty minutes before finally flying off.

What someone said about Shelfari

I received an invitation from someone I knew to Shelfari, and asked if they had found it useful. Here's the reply:

Oh, don't get me started about them. I am so cheesed off, it's not funny. First of all, I never meant to email anyone, actually, you were the only one I intended to mail, since you were the only other person I knew well, with an account there. But the damn site's interface misled me, and it shot off an email to every tom, dick and harry I have ever received an email from on gmail, half of whom I don't even know!

That irritated me so much, I deleted my account right away, and now, despite my doing that, they have sent this stupid reminder. I really wish I could sue them.

I am so angry, it's not funny.... I hope you delete your account too!! :-)

Ah...that..is that.

Does Shelfari have an option to delete the account? That, at least, would be ethical of them...
