Lunar eclipse -Rani





Don’t miss the week’sDeep Red 🌑 on the 27  July

The  Full moon will turn blood Red on 27 th as the longest total lunar Eclipse Of The century takes the  skies in Australia ,Africa.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth’s innermost shadow.

When this happens, the moon turns rusty orange or deep red in color and is how it earned the nickname of a blood moon eclipse.

The red moon will pair well with Mars, which reaches opposition just before the eclipse and will also appear orange or red in color.

Happy Birthday Maithri!!. Hope you had as much fun today as I did celebrating this special day! This evening I got a call  from my dear friend S group pal Deepthie who was upset for not posting her pics and the lovely words she wrote for my Birthday post.
I had a wonderful evening tonite with my lovely wife at a Sarasota Bayfront seafood restaurant. I have also  included those pictures  below.

Happy Birthday To you my dear friend Damayanthie !- July 21 .

I wish you all the Very Best in Life- that will be full of Good Health,
Happiness  and Longevity .
May you enjoy this day with your family and friends  and enjoy all the rest
of the days – be it your birthday or no .

 I am soo glad that we are going to meet again in oct 2018 in Beruwala and
what is more we will be sharing the room along with Chandralatha in
Beruwala, and again in Passekuda and I can hardly wait – for the fun to
begin !

Damayanthie- you have been such a good friend to me, all these long years,
even though  you are not the best  e-mail writer !
You used to write  a lot more, in the old days, when we  had to depend on
the good old fashioned snail mail – where ever we  were – in S’pore, U K,
Mississauga, Ontario etc.

I will never forget that sudden and unexpected surprise  visit you paid to
me,  back in the late ’80’s , at my home in Mississauga, that Sunday morning
,  when you and Doru were travelling along in Ontario,  Canada  and what a
treat that was !!.
Those were the days when we did not have cell phones / GPS-  and all we had
was just an old fashioned road map , home phone number scribbled on a so
called ‘ address book ‘ that we all lugged around in our hand bags !

Any way- I am glad we are going to meet again in October  .
Till we meet again- Have Fun, Keep Dancing ,  Be Happy and Be Healthy !
Your good friend- Deepthie .



I send good wishes for your birthday from the green pleasant land
As you are a wonderful batch mate and a very caring sincere friend
Wish you happiness, good health, contentment & peace throughout 
And a very long fruitful life of enjoyment with your beloved kith & kin

Dear all
We had a lovely “get together “ at Shaukat’s place.The occasion was to welcome Anslem and  Yolande who were in London. It was a lovely afternoon and the company and the food were fantastic. Shaukat had taken a lot of trouble to provide not only food by music too.
Unfortunately the photo I took has not come out  clear. I will try to send a couple of videos taken s
