A big thanks to all my friends who have’nt forgotten me  though I disappeared for 2 years! A lot has changed in wordpress. I was shocked to see my blogroll had disappeared. Thankgod I could find with my limited knowledge of computers!

Though I was’nt blogging I did take pictures whenever I prepared something interesting. This is just one of them.
