Unfair! (with an update)


I wrote this blog exactly 2 years ago. 

It’s a trivial subject – but then again – maybe not so trivial.

So I have added an update at the end with some recent photos.

This is BEAUTY!


Last week was Goldie Hawn’s 70th birthday.

I’m about a medium when it comes to celebrity infatuation. I’m not overly obsessed with the famous, but I am not above enjoying People magazine in the doctor’s office.

I like Goldie Hawn. She always had a unique look, and seemed to accept herself just as is. She appears to be at ease, embracing even, the character she created – the ditzy blonde who’s intelligent and shrewd underneath the giggles. And she even produced a couple of movies – like “Private Benjamin” – that exploited (in the best sense of the word) her rather adorable persona.

And on top of that, she has lived her life…

Jesus and James, Bros for Life

Life in the Boomer Lane

In an astonishing find to usher in the Christmas holiday season, scholars have found a copy of the original Greek manuscript describing what Jesus secretly taught his brother James.

According to Science Daily, Biblical scholars at the University of Texas at Austin discovered the manuscript in the Nag Hammadi Library at Oxford University, where it may have been a tool teachers used to help students learn to read and write.

Life in the Boomer Lane cannot stress enough the import of this find. On the one hand, it would be a rare and precious resource that might shed light onto the world’s most well-known, influential, visionary, charismatic, and yet obscure figure of all of human history.  On the other, it’s a swell way to discover what bored students were doing during the fifth and sixth centuries AD.

Life in the Boomer Lane, ever the intellectual scholar, is choosing the second…

Better to do something…


Life is full of unexpected events.
Sometimes bad sometimes good.
Making cry or smile at those events.
It’s good to have experience.
Sometimes startling and sometimes enjoying.
During the midst of day and night.
We often come across several memories.
Some haunted and some taunted.
Memories remains forever.
Events can’t be forgotten.
But can  only be forgiven.

Some moments are everlasting.
Making us to cherish.
Some are really unfortunate.
It is our duty to make it fortunate.
This is what life’s all about.
Here we are born and will be dead one day.
Better to do something…
That will be remembered for everyday.
Time is less and life is short.
Better to do something…
That will reside in everyone’s heart.

Will I Ever Listen?


Will I ever listen –

To myself?

I give lots and lots of advice. I am always writing about stuff that you should do or not do. Stuff to make you feel better or at least not feel so bad. Stuff to help you through difficult times or to enjoy sweet times.

I’m very good at doling out the advice.

And lots of people seem to appreciate it.

Apparently, I am not one of those people.

This year, I disregarded two of my most valuable pieces of advice.

#1:  Do not be ashamed of what you like.

I wrote about hearing a woman tease her friend about the romance novel her friend was reading. And the romance-novel friend kind of laughed and agreed that the book was a little trashy. I felt bad. Because I wanted the romance-novel friend to say,  “I LOVE THIS BOOK!” Because she did. And there’s…

The Male Factor

The Story of a Brief Marriage Anuk Arudpragasam and his mesmerizing Novel “The Story of A Brief Marriage” that shows war torn world from a man’s perspective.

The Story of a Brief Marriage by Anuk Arudpragasam is not only a story but more than that. It is that reality of life that (by god’s grace) many of us have never experienced. It is also that reality facing a big section of this world today.

The Story of a Brief Marriage is also not about marriage even though there is a union. If you are looking for marital extravaganza or expecting to read about a colorful marriage ceremony, you will be disappointed. In fact, the marriage here is least important of all the things in the book yet it is significant one.

The Story of a Brief Marriage is certainly not brief. The detailed description of every small emotions, incidents and physiological phenomenon amazes us for author’s…
