I physically, emotionally & psychologically hate them!

I really really hate creeps like this... they bring out the worst in me. Poor Tonio gets a earful when I see these loathsome creatures at home. I rant and rave and cry and scream and generally curse the people who cross my path. And if they give me some lecture bout how these disgusting reptiles keep the house clean by eating other insects, I lose it... big time. I mean if you like them so much, please feel free to cultivate them in the sanctity of your own bedroom. Times like this, I wonder how Jeff Corwin would have gotten along with me... I always tell Tonio that if I hadn't married him I would have married Jeff Corwin, and knowing Jeff Corwin (not that I really know him) he wouldn't like to see any creature (no matter how despicably ugly) treated with contempt and intense hatred.
Here they are having some sort of a sick family conference in the kitchen. When will they become extinct?

Egad. What are they? They certainly are, er, startling! Especially those glowing eyes...

EEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkk!!

Those look really gross! I don't like them either but I don't curse that much... I save my curses for flying insects!
Saj, Tonio, whatever.

Beth, those are ordinary house lizards and they freak me out. Their eyes don't really glow though, its the camera's effect... nevertheless they are definitely evil.

Anju, yeah I know your fear of flying insects... but you can easily swat them to death. These creeps aren't easy to kill, Tonio's dad catches them in his hand and takes them outside... I am in awe of him.

I don't know shil, big dogs may be scary... but puppies are cute. Anyway, I do know your lasting fear for canine creatures and I will strive to slowly ease the fear away. I would want this lizard hatred to go too in me...
Yeah, Tonio's dad catches huge ones (I mean really huge) in his hand, its actually cool.

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

Grandma's Caramel Cake...

Everybody in my family loves this cake, its my grandmother's recipe and it can be tweaked during the holiday season to form a delicious Christmas fruit cake. The ingredients are simple to remember, you just need equal  quantities of flour, sugar and butter and the cake is guaranteed to come out great. Ingredients 400 grams maida or all purpose flour
400 grams sugar
400 grams butter
8 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dried fruits and nuts 
brandy or rum (optional)
I've taken 400 grams of butter, sugar and flour cause I wanted to make a large cake for Christmas. You can scale the quantities down to half and make a medium sized cake. Let's start with caramelizing the sugar, from the 400 grams of sugar that you have set aside for this cake, take bout a quarter of that (100 grams) and start heating it in a dry vessel. I usually drop in another handful (bout 50 gms) of sugar to get more of the gooey caramel when I plan on adding b…
