Very Random Thoughts.


When I was young, many people who cared about me gave me this advice which really helped me a lot -- Choose your battles. And choose wisely.

I have learned, albeit the hard way, that we make our own heaven. (Or hell).

. . . . .

Today, I found a snail mail from Google Adsense (marked Oct 20) in my pigeonhole. I was surprised. Why would the Google Adsense team send me a letter?

I haven't been checking my Adsense account online, until today. What do you know? I actually have earnings out of my Adsense banner from my Travel Food Finds site. Amused. =D To think, I haven't been updating that site much until recently.

Incidentally, I posted a contest there from Ovi by Nokia. Join. You might win. =)

. . . . .

Two people wrote me asking if I accept ad banners in this site. I was kind of surprised that people are actually willing to pay to have their banners here. And oh, there's my ever faithful, ever supportive Chelo who also expressed interest in advertising here and who I promised I will tell first as soon as I decide to open this site for ads. You are the sweetest, Chel.

I am thinking about it.

I'll check with Google Analytics if this site have decent enough traffic to hold ad banners. =)

. . . . .

I cut this passage out from my old O Magazine and pasted it on my ref some weeks ago --

"We all do it - age, that is. How happy you are depends on the images you hold in your mind.
Are you clinging to the visions of the past, or anticipating new possibilities?"

A question worth thinking about.

First off, YOU ARE talented enough to write a book. And when you do finally decide to write a book, I will gladly let you use this photo. =)

Still thinking about the ad banners, Chel. One thing is sure though right now, I am going to update that site as often as I could. =)

And yes, if ever, I'll give discounts to first few customers! =D

Birthdays should always be happy. =) Thank you for blowing happiness my way.
