Fantasy Football WIN

It was my first fantasy football competition. And I WON :) and so did Spain after a long long time and their second big international cup.

I was surprised how addictive it can be. At some point, I was more interested in getting points from my selected players in here rather than who wins.

Final Tally

Winning Team (as you see, I was supporting both teams equally :))

Flickr Fav. Dump


Google news was welcome change in online news with aggregated news from all over but there was something missing always, no interactivity n no videos (some youtube ones but not enough), and then I saw this one. Piclens, its a plugin for firefox and initially I installed it for flickr and over the months, its has improved a lot with news, videos, immersive environment. Just flick thru' news n images in the morning for a quick glance, or see images n videos of news with headlines. Still of things missing (some sort of personalization aspect would be very interesting) but going in right direction. Check it out!!

40 Million Paper Cups

This is a shot by Chris Jordan (via his TED talk) of the 40 Million paper cups we use in day in perspective and it equals a 40 story building or as seen with Statue of Liberty and if you watch closely, on the bottom left corner, the 2 dots like things are humans. Amazing, watch the talk for some more interesting facts.

Sunset Dancing

Sunset Dancing, originally uploaded by Mohan S.

Been a busy week and the upcoming week is quite busy also. Can't leave my blog behind also :)

So here is one of my favourite shot [shot by myself :D] taken on the North-West coast of Ireland in a town called Bundoran.

It was one of most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.

On the Other Side

Thru' a ...., originally uploaded by Mohan S.

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Baile Átha Cliath - Dublin - Town of the Hurdled Ford

To North-West

We did another road trip (basically all trips in Ireland are road trips :D) to north-west of Ireland and Northern Ireland for the june bank holiday weekend. I like that in Ireland, pick the car, drive and we are on the other side of the country in few hours. We went to a surfing town called Bundoran (map below), unfortunately I didn't do surfing (next time), but it was still quite good for several other reasons ;) and also for the Rory Gallagher music festival in Ballyshannon and some site-seeing in North Ireland.
Enjoy the pics below :) (esp. the sunset shots, it was one of most beautiful sunsets I saw, just gorgeous)

Peaceful Sunset

"Saudade" is a word in Portuguese meaning similar to longing, nostalgia and most importantly missing something; which is how I feel right now. Obv. not sure what else to write in this post.
I can't be sure that this state of mind, is not of my own design
I wish there was an over the counter test, for this state of mind
