PR Drop of this blog due to moving to domain name?

I am not sure what's the reason but this blog's PR is dropped from PR3 to PR1. I doubt if changing over to a domain name from to affected this. Because the later domain name was lying around for some time in my bucket of domain names, and I thought I shall use it for this blog to make it hosted on a domain name.

Though it helped me a lot to get better reviews as many of the advertisers don't like to have reviews done by blogspot hosted blogs, I am little bit sad about the domain drop. The only reason behind adding this domain this blog was it's PR, which was PR3 before the recent google page rank update.

Now, I have one more task in my task list, getting up the PR of this domain back to PR3 and then PR5 :). Lot of work in hand, see you guys!

I can now withdraw money from Paypal easily

I have some money lying in my Paypal account, not millions of dollars but very small amount, but since long it's lying there idle. Because withdrawing it was a big pain, but it's not any more.

Paypal introduced receiving money on your credit, debit cards recently, which is a big relief for people outside USA. In the asian countries like India, Malaysia - it takes around 7-10 days to receive the check from US and 21-28 days to encash the check after depositing in local bank - which is pretty long period but now, people can receive cash on their cards within a week for a small fee of $5. I did not try this service yet, as I have very small amount and $5 charges will be a considerable %age for the withdrawal.

The holidays are just around the corner and everyone is looking forward for the festivals that are fun times with family gatherings. The winter holidays are coming starting with Thanksgiving and then Christmas. Almost every family decorates the tree the weekend of Thanksgiving. There are nice big dinners and some nice music on and every one is busy decorating the tree with lights and various decorative stuff. But which lights we use on the trees, normal Christmas tree lights or LED Christmas tree lights and why? Something to think about.

LED Christmas tree lights use 80-90% less energy than incandescent lights which is just incredible saving of energy. And moreover the reuse of LED lights year after year - is one big reason to use these LED lights. offers a very nice selection of Christmas LED mini lights. They are good for the environment and as they explain in the FAQs.

Unlike incandescent lighting, LED string lighting is very durable and rarely fails. This is because LED lighting is constructed of solid state components which are not easily damaged by external shock. In fact, LED string lamps are encased in a nearly indestructible epoxy shell which has proven to withstand the weight of a tractor-trailer. Incandescent bulbs can be damaged or broken if simply dropped on the ground.

As we mentioned above as well, LED Christmas lights are much more efficient than incandescent lights. So make a decision of switching today, you will be helping the earth, and in the end you’re saving yourself a lot of money in the long run.

Few Useful Tips on Home Mortgage Refinance

All of us want to save money. And that's what we try for. No one wants to spend more money than they have to, either on their personal bills or their Mortgage Loans. There has been so much talk in the market about refinancing your home mortgage today because home sales have slowed so much, the same way people used to talk about payday loans. This can either be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your own personal circumstances. Here are some tips to help you to know if you should refinance your home mortgage and how to know that you are getting the best rate.

  • Points or no Points - When it comes to lowering your rates you will need to weight the benefits of having a lower rate vs. paying points up front. You may end up paying a lot more depending on your choice and how long you plan on keeping your mortgage.
  • If your new mortgage rate seems too good to be true then it probably is. Check for hidden fees in your mortgage that will make up that suspicious difference. So make sure the hidden fees does not Hurt You
  • Don't fall for the 0% apr unless it fits in with your master plan. A lot of brokers will try to get you locked into a low interest rate that will balloon on you in a couple of years and leave you out on the street. So better stay away from such Sneaky Interest Games.
  • You have a legal right to a good faith estimate. Get a copy of this document and go over it with a fine tooth comb, it will reveal where there is a real problem.
  • Start your Clock - Weigh the costs carefully of how long you will be staying in your home vs. how much of a savings you will be getting in a refinance. Make sure you include closing costs in your decision.

Tapping of boots which reminds you the childhood

My waking up in the morning, getting ready in rush, wearing the clothes whatever I see in front and running to the police ground to make 5 rounds of the ground to stay myself fit. Not alone me, my four friends used to do the same routine along with me. Unfortunately, it's not something I do today, but it was my childhood.

It was amazing I know, to go to the police ground and watch those fit cops flaunting their police uniform and tapping their Rocky Boots in rhythm. It was simply amazing!

When I look at myself now, entered into a different profession - but still I can't forget the cops shoes - whether they are Rocky Boots or Bates Boots, they are just cool shoes you need to have in your shoe rack.

Benefits of Reviewing Websites or Services

This evening, I am sticking to PPP - may be because there are some interesting opportunities coming up and I am trying to grab the best ones. Now how I decide the best ones - a high value, and interesting topic is basic criteria.

I tell you a fact - these review services really added up to my general awareness. Due to the basic reason of reviewing a website or service, I need to go through the service thoroughly and find out how exactly it works to actually review it. This not only helps me to review better but also add up in my general knowledge. For example, the post below on VOIP service. Though I am not a VOIP expert, I need to have some basic knowledge about it and at least should know who all provide such service. Reviewing such services will help me to have such service names at hand.

Also, I am now a days able to update my blogs much faster than before. Thanks to PPP's terms and services which enforce you should have one unpaid post between paid posts from any services. There are few review services which don't enforce this rule. But I support this rule, so that your blog is saved from being a matrix of paid posts only drifting away from the main topic of the blog.

What are participatory notes or P-Notes or PNs in Indian Stock Market?

The reason in Stock market steep fall in the morning was on the news that participatory notes would be banned in India.

But the question in any lame investor's mind is - what are these participatory notes or P-Notes or PNs?

PNs are financial instruments used by investors or hedge funds that are not registered with Sebi, to invest in Indian shares. FIIs and their sub-accounts buy Indian securities and then issue PNs to foreign investors with these securities as the underlying.

Once the Sebi proposals are operationalized, only FIIs whose outstanding notes do not exceed 40% of their total asset holding in India will be allowed to issue fresh ones. For instruments already issued by FII sub-accounts, Sebi has given a window of 18 months to wind up existing positions.

Shiva Cement rising due to ACC's interest

Have you heard of this company? I had never, but it's rising up and up due to ACC's interest in increasing it's stake to 14.7% from existing 11.22% stake in this company. Now the share is only Rs. 12.89 today at the end of the day and today it hit upper circuit of 10% upward move.

I tell you, it's very important to find such companies and stay invested in these companies for years together and with lots of holding. I am sure it would give you more than 1000% returns in few years.

The same stock when you see hovering at 120-140, you would repent that you could have invested in this company then. Because I had seen similar case with Karuturi Networks in 2004, when it went past beyond my eye sight from Rs 24 to now Rs. 300 and more. Lesson to learn, hmm?

Australia Beat India in 6th ODI - Andrew Symonds Showed all rounder performance

Australia held on their nerves to win the sixth One-Dayer against India by 18 runs at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium today few minutes back. With this win, Australia also claimed the seven-match ODI series and now lead 4-1 in the Future Cup. Andrew Symonds celebrated a fast century in Nagpur with a nice spell in bowling as well.

The match turned to be very exciting match when I watched the opening pair, Sachin Tendulkar and Sourabh Ganguly opening up with century partnership. The middle order of India could not help the great opening partnership when Rahul Dravid and Yuvraj Singh could not show some hard hitting. Those were the overs probably costed a lot to India as they struggled to achieve 12 runs per over run rate towards end.

I still kept on sticking my eyes to the television and I at least could enjoy the fast hitting of Robin Utthappa, he could not finish his 50 but he went close to it within 28 balls only.

Any ways, I wished India could win this match but they could not. Now, I don't think there would be lot of excitement for the last One day match in Mumbai.

Stock Market BSE Sensex Becomes Adult (18000+)

At 18, you can blame it on the raging libido. Boys may have to make way for men as Sensex hits a record high of 18,280 on the back of eye-popping rallies in Reliance & Reliance. From here on, it's no longer for the faint of heart.

At the height of the dotcom mania in 1999-00, the easiest way to maximize returns was to buy into any stock with the suffix ‘Software’ or ‘Technologies’. Eight years on, the same seems to hold true for any stock with the prefix ‘Reliance’, given their baffling run-up over the past one month.

As the benchmark logged its highest single-day gains in absolute terms on Tuesday to race past the 18,000-mark, factors like politics, valuations and earnings appear to have become non-issues overnight.

The only thing that matters for now is liquidity and there is nothing to suggest the tide could reverse. In less than three weeks since the US Federal Reserve cut rates, FIIs have pumped in a net of $5.4 billion into Indian equities. According to provisional data, foreign funds bought over Rs 1,400 crore worth of shares on Tuesday.

LED Christmas Tree Lighting to Save Energy

Friends, holiday Season is coming up, whether it's Christmas, Hanukkah or Diwali in India and I know everyone of you is very excited to welcome the season with your homes full of lights and sweets, cakes. Everyone is looking forward for the festivals that are fun times with family gatherings. We would like to lit our homes with lights, but which one we shall use, normal lights or LED Xmas lights. Let's think about it.

Have we ever thought of the impact on environment in these festival times? I think very rarely we give attention to it.

Due to the excess use of everything in holiday season - we should give attention to use of recycle materials for holiday cards, biodegradable decoration, packing materials. Try to avoid using disposable plates, cups, napkins and utensils but use durable material.

Every home and city would be lit with so many lights. We can use the energy efficiently by using LED Christmas lights. Why? There is a reason. When all world is facing scarce of energy resources, just imagine LED Xmas lights using 80-90% less energy than incandescent lights. This is incredible saving of energy. And you can also reuse the LED lights year after year.

The US Labor Department said the economy added 110,000 jobs. This would uplift the sentiments in Indian markets as well, and I am expecting a surge in stocks on Monday.

Indian markets may also see an upside in the coming sessions, with stock-specific action based on corporate results. Although certain amount of profit booking cannot be ruled out.

Factors that would predict market trend in the coming weeks include -
  • Quarterly results from Infosys
  • The board meeting of DLF to consider overseas acqusitions and raising funds offshore on Thursday, 11 October 2007.
  • Quarterly results from HDFC Bank and
  • Reliance Industries annual shareholder meeting on Friday, 12 October 2007.

Jail for talking on cell & driving

In a first-of-its-kind case anywhere in the country, a Mumbai magistrate’s court on Friday sentenced three persons to a day’s imprisonment for talking on their mobile phones while driving. They were also fined amounts ranging between Rs 1,000 and Rs 1,500 and had their licenses suspended for six months.

When the Mumbai police started locking up people for drunken driving, we enthusiastically welcomed the development. Today, when they have started putting people in jail for talking on cellphones while driving, we have to point out that this is carrying things too far. To equate the two violations of traffic rules is simply absurd. Drunken driving has beyond doubt led to dozens of deaths in accidents. The same can hardly be said of using the mobile while driving. It is a tendency that should be discouraged, but the punishment must be proportionate to the offense — a hefty fine should do the job.

Alcohol Rehab for Alcoholism or Drug Addiction

Well, I keep you updated on health related issues regularly. I decided to touch a very sensitive and important topic of addiction treatment today. Specially when it becomes very difficult to even find out a good treatment program which will help you in need. Such moments, it's really difficult to rely on anyone very easily, as you keep on getting suggestions from 100s of people and you never know which one to go for or believe on.

The reason to touch this important topic is due to the suffering I have seen for my friend's brother. It's so painful to see the addicted person and the problems he is facing with alcoholism. Due to his addiction, he is not able to focus on his job, lost it and not able to live his social life properly.

Someone suggested him to go for a good alcohol rehab or specifically to The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs which would offer much better care for him on the alcohol addiction. This programs offer a higher standard of care for men and women suffering from the disease of alcoholism or drug addiction. They have successfully treated thousands of alcoholics and drug addicts and helped them to get their lives back. It's good that he has been given good recommendation.

Factors Car Insurance Rates Depend Upon

Think about your last major purchase. Whether you bought a car, a computer, or a watch, you likely shopped around to find the best product at the lowest price. But did you shop for your Car insurance? Shopping for car insurance is the best way to ensure that you're getting the lowest rate. And you need to compare car insurance to get the best deal in the market.

The Car Insurance Rates depend on many factors:
  • Your age
  • Your driving record
  • The type of car you drive
  • Where you live
  • The amount of coverage you want
  • The deductible you choose
  • Any discounts you're eligible for
The price also depends on the insurance company you choose. Your car insurance rate can vary by hundreds of dollars from one insurance company to another for the exact same coverage. That's why it's important that you shop and compare insurance rates from multiple companies. It's just similar to Home insurance; you can see lot of variety in insurance market and variance in rates. So I would suggest to catch hold of a reliable company like which will provide you the best rates for your car insurance.

Sensex is almost touching to 19000

Wow, what a bull run sensex has been seeing. I just wrote about sensex touching 18000 few days back and it covered up 1000 points within few sessions. Isn't it too much.

I don't know what's happening but I am scared to invest money in Indian market any more. I am smelling some scandal like Harshad Mehta or Ketan Parekh took place few years back. Hope I would pull out my money on right time before market sees a huge correction which many of the analysts saying, is on the cards.

Jewish Dating Website

Are you Jewish? And are you single? Answer to these two questions will explain you what this post is all about. I have wrote about a dating site long back which was specially built for a community. These kind of dating sites are becoming popular.

With the enormous growth of Internet and people living online life more than real life, the free service websites, new ideas etc are spreading across the world very fast. There are many Internet dating websites out there that serve as a platform for many individuals to search for their soul mate, friends, partners and etc. Of course, it is separated into two main categories, free and paid service.

But I would suggest to try free services than the paid ones. The reason is, if the free service is for a special community, you would find legitimate people out there. One of the free Internet Jewish dating website is JLove, where it targets Jewish singles and also Jewish personals. JLove is targetted for these specific group of people instead of a wider group and population. So you would find real people than fake IDs out there.

With specific targeted users from Jewish community, there are many functions avaiable for this dating site like Search function, profiles, testimonials, photo gallery and many more are some of features in the website interface. Of course, there are private messaging functions for you to contact the person that you are interested with.

Hence, for those who are interested in dating Jewish, JLove is the website to be as it is one of the most comprehensive Jewish dating website ever offered on the World Wide Web.

Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti

Today is Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti and anyone would see a different celebration this year. Last year, the movie "Lage Raho Munnabhai" starring Sanjay Dutt and Vidya Balan had a great impact on Indian minds with it's "Gandhigiri" concept. While watching that movie, I had felt that we were forgetting Mahatma Gandhi and this movie helped us to remember that Gandhi was the pioneer of Satyagraha.

If you are near by Novi, MI, US - you may like to watch "Lage Raho Munnabhai" movie Lage Raho Munnabhai for free today. I think this a cool way to celebrate Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was a major political and spiritual leader of India and the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer of Satyagraha—the resistance of tyranny through mass civil disobedience, firmly founded upon ahimsa or total non-violence—which led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. Gandhi is commonly known in India and across the world as Mahatma Gandhi

Online Shopping Coupons to Save Money in Festival Season

Thanksgiving is coming, the holiday season is in the door and everyone is ready with his buying list, whether it's in store or online. But let me suggest you guys, please try to find out all the possible online shopping coupons before you do the transaction. I have saved a lot of money through these coupons in the past and I would like you also to take the benefit of this.

You might be thinking of gifts for your spouse, kids, parents and that would certainly cost a lot to your pockets, so why not to ease it a bit by using coupon codes at the online stores. If you are thinking to buy some electronic item for your kids, you may think of finding out bestbuy coupons at bestbuy store and save few bucks. Or you thinking about buying a nice sweater for your wife or husband from gaps, take benefit of free shipping gap coupon codes, or 20% discount coupons. Believe me, this saves a lot of money eventually.

How important it is to search for discount coupons online, I would tell you. I was thinking to buy a Digital SLR camera for my wife and zeroed down to Nikon 40x camera with 18-55mm lens. But it's pretty costly and beyond my budget, still I liked that camera so much. In such situations it's good to look for online discount coupons and at least reduce the buy price by few more dollars. I found a 10% discount coupon at couponchief and almost saved $60-70 on my purchase, what else you want :).

Feeling Sleepy

I cannot say my weekend was hectic, but end of my weekend certainly was! I could not sleep till 1.00 in the morning and then had to get up at 5.30 am. I think I can survive with 4-5 hrs sleep as I used to but today I am observing that I cannot stand with getting up early and less sleep together. Right now with my heavy eyes, I am trying to focus on my TO DO lists of Monday.

More than the Monday blues, not enough sleep is making me uncomfortable. Imagine, writing a post with all sleepy eyes. That's what exactly you would see, if you could peep through this computer window. Let me see how the rest of the day goes. Bye!
