100th Post

I started to write my own blog last June and the time passed very quickly. Here I am writing my 100th post.

I would like to thank 2 people for this.

First is my wife. She is my number one fan and my number one criticizer. I am not saying this just for the sake of saying. It is true. I can write a long post about which of my posts she ROFL and which ones she criticized vehemently.

The next one is my blog guru, Insignia. After reading her posts only, I got inspiration to write my own blog. She not only encouraged that but also initially “set up” my blog (technicalities). I always try to copy her writing style. Copying is the best form of flattery. Isn’t it!

I have some followers to my blog. Just 2 sentences about this group. I don’t have the biggest group. But I have the best group.

I came "this close" to announcing this post as my last one because I thought I had lost interest. I certainly do not have a writer's block. My well wishers persuaded me to continue. I will continue to write. Thanks for supporting me, my friends.

I hit a century. Don't I have to celebrate that in a big way? Yes, of course. We have booked a 7 night cruise to Mexico leaving from Los Angeles on May 2. The ship will stop at 3 ports for sightseeing. Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. This is our second cruise vacation. Looking forward to this cruise.

    Wait a minute, you were thinking about quitting already...er I mean semi-retiring after just 100 blogs?
    You are still in your prime. Don't give it all up now.

    Bjorn Borg and Barry Sanders

  15. Thanks for your comments Bjorn and Barry. Bjorn, you made more than $100 million in Tennis. Barry, you made more than $100 million in Baseball. I am a few million short of that from doing nothing. Therefore, I will not retire until I achieve that goal.

  23. Thanks for your comments and complements Insignia. It is something like "vasishtar vayaala brahmarishi pattam" (Translation: The title of Brahmarishi bestowed upon a person by Sage Vasishtar himself.)
