OPoCCtGP's wisdom nuggets (food wise, life foolish!)

Soup - One meal a day should be soup. Dinner, preferably. So that I breakfast like a king, lunch like a commoner and dine like a pauper!
Tea - Replace mid-afternoon snack with fruit and tea.
Water - Reach for water first, munchies second.
Taste - Eat something until it tastes good, and then stop (exhibit A - gulab jamun binging on Nov 20th) and put the rest away. Do not be lazy to do this.
Stop - Do not eat after 8:30 pm. Just say No. Brush your teeth, go to bed, read a book, do a craft. Just don't eat.
Visit - Visit rules everyday. :)

How to see the "अ" button when you compose your blog

It has recently come to my attention :) that LoR can't see the "" button on her screen where she composes her blogs. This might be an issue for others of you as well. For me, the button appears in the series of buttons when I compose my blog (non-Html). It's in between the "i" button for italics, and the "T" button that changes colours in the blog.

If you can't see the "", and want to, this is what you have to do ->
1. After you are logged in, click "Customize" on the right hand top corner of the screen.
2. Then click on "Settings". It is the large tab on top of the page towards the left, just under the title of the blog.
3. Scroll down to "Global Settings"
4. Select "Yes" for question "Show transliteration button for your posts?"
5. Click on the bright orange "Save Settings"

You should now be good to go! Next time you compose, you should see "" in between your italic and font colour buttons!

Have fun!

Inspiration from the Seven places *not* to eat!

I hereby declare to the world -
I'm going to STOP eating in front of a screen. No more eating while on my computer or watching TV. Its OUT! (That's where most of my मिठाई-binging happens :) )

Here's the link again - Seven worst ways to eat!

A couple of new things!

Blog is new and improved? :)

- I added an "email" feature. If you find a blog posting interesting, you can now email it to a friend to check out!
- And, it is now possible to transliterate from English to हिंदी! Just use the "" button in the compose window. One tip - increase the font size of the Devanagari script to make it easily readable!

Isn't that pretty cool?

Is it just me, or does this article seem to hark back to the 50s?

Just saw this on CNN. Is this really what they write in magazines like Oprah? Is it just me who seems to be bristled by it? Let a man think he's right? Why, just because he's a man? Do they have guidance lists like this for men to follow too? ("Never say she's fat" :) )

Maybe its just me, but I thought it was a tad offensive to women. Esp. western feministsish women!
