Farewell- Rosie Thomas!




Lyrics: Farewell so long cause I was wrong I guess Farewell so long cause I was wrong I confess I miss the way you I miss the way you danced with me I miss the way you I miss the way you danced with me So farewell my love Cause I was wrong I guess Farewell so long Cause I was wrong I confess I miss the way you I miss the way you sing with me I miss the way you I miss the way you sing with me I never asked you for A sailboat in the yard Or that fancy dress to wear Or a ceiling made of stars And all I got was just this Broken heart from you.

The July Night Sky

Polaris, the north star is getting easier for me, to spot in the night sky. The Big Dipper is easy to see. The Small Dipper is not that well seen but on a dark clear sky can be visualized. A few days back, the sky was so clear that I could see the milky way. Today, I will try spotting Thuban in the Draco constellation. Of course, with a little help of a planisphere!

My PC Build

Lulubeagle, my PC Build

Just got done building my PC! It was not such a daunting task and went rather well with smooth sailing. 
Ever since, I have been a kid, I have wanted to build my own PC. Then, when I had kids, I had wanted to build a PC with them for them. But, I was always afraid that I would mess it up.
Now, with so much information on the internet and with how to videos on youTube, it has become easier to take up projects after doing a brief research. Pcpartpicker.com is also a great site which helps you plan your PC build and see that all the parts are compatible.
So, at the tender age of 60 years, I got going on this project. And, I must say, it was one of the most gratifying experience. Now, I feel, that with enough planning, I can do anything, with a little help from the internet!
My PC build is named after my pet, a one year old beagle, named Lily. But, I call her 'Lulu' because I can say it better. Lily takes some effort in pronouncing. My PC build is called "Lulubeagle".

Website building

Building a website from the grounds up is a daunting task. Finally, I took up the challenge and built a basic photography website as a stepping stone to a more elaborate and complicated one.

Check out my website:

http://www.chandrujain.com

Here is a screenshot of the front page



This is a rudimentary site with just a few of my photographs. For the more elaborate and professional looking site, I have decided to go with ' Photocrati ' which is the ultimate template for photographers. Learning it will take up a lot my time. Then comes the arduous task of collecting all my photos from different computers, online storage drives and my backup drives. I do have a few thousands of photographs and will have to select a few hundred to showcase them on the website. These select photos will need to be resized for the web in the required dimensions for posting. The task is herculean but not impossible.

Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge over troubled water



Lyrics 

When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I'm on your side. When times get rough
And friends just can't be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

When you're down and out,
When you're on the street,
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.
I'll take your part.
When darkness comes
And pain is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

Sail on silvergirl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
