The House on the Rock

The house on the rock is a is a complex of architecturally unique rooms, streets, gardens and shops designed by Alex Jordan, Jr. It is located in Iowa County, south of Spring Green, Wisconsin and is a regional tourist attraction. I went there is minimal expectations and it exceeded all of those. Built on top of a mountain the Wyoming Valley, it just goes to show the spirit of its Building Alex Jordan. It just goes to show what eccentric people can do when they put their mind to it. His creation does nothing to the science of mankind, but this is just superb.

During the visit my reactions were changing to an awe. The second section just blew me away and I had surrendered to the marvel created by Alex Jordan. The third section was kind of let down compared to the second one, however this section had an awesome collection of Doll Houses, that made it worthwhile. Overall, the third section in the end turned out to be a very good one.

Friendship

How we feel is something that we cant control - or at least not at the very beginning. We may be able to over a period of time to control our emotions, but when something happens at that point how you feel tells you who you are what the other person means to you. Friendship is one such thing.

So, now when I hear about a "friend", and my first emotion is not to be happy for them, I know it is not friendship. I just know - I don't understand why I was not remembered; how come I am not remembered every time. I know it is time to let go. I know we are not friends any more, we are just "ex-colleagues".

Enjoyed playing today

Today I played a kid, 17 year old (Meghna) and she is good. She hits the ball very well both forehands and backhands. At times gets the ball to kick up and has some tremendous passing shots. However, I was happy just playing her as I was able to match her strokes and at times…

Here is a trailer of the movie that started as a "Kid Movie" now ends being a dark action thriller. Could this have a better end - I guess not. This is going to be awesome, and simply thrilling. I gotta watch all the previous ones to be sure I am aware of the complete story line and also gotta find this one on 3D.

Not Careless but Not too Careful Either

It's easy to be confident when you have control of your life. It's very, very difficult to keep that confidence when you gotta take whatever strange bounces life throws your way. Don't be careless, but don't be too careful either. You cannot be afraid to lose! That's how you gain the confidence to attack the life when its not on your side. That's how you attack life... even when you think you don't have any control.

Deep dive | India’s route to Test#1

What I found was a revelation of facts that a lot of is was favorable and because of Australia and SA not doing their best and India matching up their worst or just being a little better.

Overall, it clearly presents a case where India has been more conservative on their test playing strategies - playing less, playing at home, don't loose and play safe to draw.

Now, if all that was played just as I can see all of those, good strategy to be number one. It is like saying "Let the others fight and diminish their resources and we will come on top because of their losses."

Now - please tell me what did Dhoni do to take India here - it just happened. With a good team and safe strategy forces were in our favor. I am happy we are number one, but Dhoni did nothing in all this to happen. As a captain he could not do what all others in the past have struggled - improve our performance overseas. Change that - and then be called a Great Captain.
