Meet Gorbachev

Well, our canary called Gorbachev, anyhow. He's a fascinating little canary, all white except with a grey smoodge (as opposed to a smudge) on his head. We went to Pisces to take a look at canaries. We were in luck that day, because they put out a… more »

A Week Left!

Great googly-moogly - there's a week and some handful of hours left until the wedding. Criminy! Lots of last-minute things to do, I'm sure, but we have covered off so many. We can't get away for an actual honeymoon, but we'll spoil ourselves for a… more »

Colloquial Hindi : Tej K. Bhatia

I have always found books on the Indian/Pakistani language to be close to insufferable. They always take the training wheels off too fast, leaving you spinning in mid-air wondering in Chapter 4 what all these words are supposed to be. In short, they… more »
