The keyboard of my PC is in black color. Within one year of constant use, the letters became dull. I never noticed it, because

I see the keyboard only to type out numbers and not for the alphabets, comma and full stop! Some of my guests struggle with

the keyboard. Actually, one guest suggested to me to buy a new keyboard. Then, I thought that I should do something. I was

waiting for nice alphabets in print and then came an advertisement for a pain balm! Yes... That was what I expected. I cut off

the alphabets carefully but Q, W, K and Z were missing! So O with a tail became Q; upside down M became W; a stroke to Y gave

K and N became Z! I fixed all the letters using cello-tape. Wow! The keyboard has a clear look now!

When we travel in trains, there are no cups provided near the wash basins. Taking a plastic cup occupies space.

So, it is a good idea to take a small empty packet which can hold about half a glass of water. This could be stored

flat when not in use! It will be very useful while brushing the teeth and rinsing the mouth after eating.

In Sing. Chennai, almost all the houses have at least one daily sheet calender hanging on the wall. The bundle of sheets will be

fixed with three sharp nails hit from the back of the card board. So, after about six months, when the bundle becomes thin, the

nails will show out! When we pass nearby, there is a chance to get hurt! Here is a simple
! Remove the nails and make small

cuts on the sides of the card board just enough to hold a twine thread. Fix the thread as seen in the picture with a knot at the

backside. Hang the bundle in the middle. The thread may be kept on December 1st and later on moved to the last sheet!

P.S: This idea is for 2013 daily sheet calender!! :)

You can get Alphabet stickers in children's section or from scrapbook stores.

I live in Sing. Chennai. Our stores don't have small letters! May be my son can send it from Boston!

They give alphabets with VIP suit cases. But ours were probably lost!

Even then, what can I do for numbers 1 and ! ; 2 and @ etc? :)

The finished results may be worth it!!!!! AHEM
I know that Prasad Sir!! :pound:

We siblings have nick named such ideas as 'Kumaran brand'. Shall tell you the story!

In our village, we had one carpenter - Kumaran - who is very efficient but will NOT give good finish to his products.

He made a duplicate almirah like 'Godrej' brand, using wooden boards and aluminium sheet! Since he could not get

the handle, he bought one form the 'kAyalAn kadai' and it was the door handle of a car!! So you can imagine how

the finished product would have been!! :D (My younger sister uses it now!)

Anyway, as I wrote earlier, I seldom see the keyboard while typing... So it is for the 'pleasure' of the users who see it
! :cool: . :thumb:

I wish to keep away pests without killing them, as far as possible. But when kids visit our house, we need the 'mosquito bat'

to kill the few which enter through the main and back doors of the house. The nets on the windows are not enough to keep them

all out! But, the problem is that once the bat is dropped on the floor, it will NOT work. Ram bought a newer model with the

provision of a light in the handle... probably to search for the mosquitoes in dark!! As expected, one of us dropped it down and

the bat went on strike! I felt bad to throw it away since the light and recharging unit were working. I separated the top portion

of the bat from the handle and fixed a piece of thick paper to cover the tip. Now the rechargeable torch light is ready! :thumb:

The Happy New Year brought a new daily sheet calender. Last year I liked the Travel's calender

very much. This year my favorite is this Ganesha - Lakshmi -lAbam calender, which is given by

a shoe mart! 'Idea thilakam' did not like to see the word 'shoe' every morning and so covered

all the letters with colorful pieces from a greeting card! :thumb:

The twine thread too is ready for JUNE!! :D

Being a Doctor's daughter why you did not study Medicine and become a Doctor?
Dear P J Sir,

என் சோகக் கதைப் பகுதியைக் கிளறுகின்றீர்கள்! சங்கீதம் என் முதல் விருப்பம். ஆனால் சங்கீதம் படிக்க சரித்திரம் ஒரு

பாடமாக அமையும்! (Music - main; History - ancillary) எனக்கு சரித்திரப் பாடம் எட்டிக் காய்! மருத்துவம் படிக்க, புகுமுக

வகுப்பில் (P U C) தவளை, எலி, கரப்பான் பூச்சி இன்ன பிற அறுக்க வேண்டும். இதுவும் பிடிக்காத விஷயமே. தவளையை


அறுக்க முடியாதவள், எப்படி 'மருத்துவி' ஆவேன்?? கணிதம் நன்றாக வரும் என்பதால், வேறு வழியின்றி, கணித
த்தில்

முதுகலை (M Sc) பட்டம் பெற்றேன்!


1976-வது ஆண்டின் சிறந்த வீணை இசை இளம் கலைஞராகத் தேர்ந்தெடுக்கப்பட்டு, திருச்சி மற்றும் கரூர் இசை

மேடைகளில் வீணை வாசித்ததும், விசாகப் பட்டணத்தில் அகில இந்திய வானொலியில் வீணை இசைத்ததும் என்

இள வயது சாதனைகள்! இப்போது
சங்கீதம் கற்பித்து
, என் இசை ஆர்வத்தைத் தீர்த்துக்கொள்ளுகிறேன். :cool:
