Not sure of the origin of this name, but it is an attention getter, for English speakers!

Electrician or Telephone Repairman! I am glad he knows what he is doing!

Nearby Sunset

Where is the best place to watch the sunset near you? Intellectual Martyr’s Monument: I have taken sunset photos here in the past, and it is nice to get the sunset through this opening in the monument. From my home, the best place to get a sunset photo, is standing in the straight, or from the upstairs bedroom window, looking past the next door house and above the clock tower of the courrthouse.

Learning

What is something you learned recently? I learned that after the Partition of India in 1947, current Bangladesh was called East Bengal until 1955 when it was called East Pakistan. I had thought that already in 1947 it was called East Pakistan. We made Bangladesh our home from 2007-2015. There are many rickshaws in the country, a very economical way to get around. Craftandtravel.com posted this info: Bringing colour, creativity and character to the city; and more importantly a means of living to over a million people, there are an estimated 1/2 million rickshaws in Dhaka today (1 rickshaw/140 people). Rickshaw art is considered ‘street art’ literally as it’s only viewable when you’re actually on the streets. You can ride 1/2 mile for 30 taka (0.27 USD).

You can see a little bitt of rickshaw on the back of the rickshaw on the left of the photo.

You can see rickshaw art on the back of the rickshaw in the center. It looks like the fellow on the right is probably advertising for someone and making income, instead of paying to have rickshaw art there!

At the wedding we attended this little boy was intrigued by my camera! He pushed every button possible, and I am hoping he doesn’t format the card! :–) I took a photo of him, and the rest are photos he took. He was somewhat limited since I kept the strap arround my neck! Notice the look on the faces of the ladies when they realized what was happening. Have a great weekend.

Describe your perfect birthday cake. If I didn’t care about the sugar content or calories, then it would be a Black Forest Cake! Otherwise, a Jello Cake would be perfect!

Here I am about to blow out the candles on the cake on my last birthday!

What are the pros and cons of procrastination? Pros: You can gather more facts to make the decision, or the decision may not need to be made! Cons: Others involved will be disappointed.
