The Pigeons – May 31, 2008

The Pigeons – May 31, 2008

Day 21 of the Pigeon Chronicles… Three weeks! I have watched the little pigeon family in our balcony grow from little chicks to almost fully grown pigeons and it has been a rewarding experience. Today I found the chicks in one of the other pots. The timid one immediately hopped back to their nest but the other chap just stood there are stared at me 🙂 Tags: “The+Pigeons”

Books for the new academic year have been purchased along with the new black Reebok shoes mandated by the school authorities. In the meantime Padmaja has them busy with various activities at home (I never can figure out how she finds the time between work and home). The last big ticket item was pot painting.

Zoundry Raven

I came across Zoundry Raven a couple of months ago but hadn’t had the time to download and use it. The web site looked promising and features listed were just what I was looking for. I downloaded the installer today and have just finished configuring it to blog to this blog. One of the features I have wanted for some time is a good WYSIWYG editor in a light weight package.
