Wonderful Pondicherry Trip

 

Pondicherry or Puducherry is an old town in South India. It was a French colony long time back so we can still see the French houses and architecture in Pondicherry. Some of the local Indian people also speak French language which is really amazing. We met a Tea shop owner who was speaking in French very fluently to a French guy.

Birding

Birding

A birder is someone who watches birds. The term birder is used interchangeably with bird watcher. However, there are people who believe these words have different meaning. Most people believe that a birder is someone who will normally go for a very long distance to watch birds; it is more of an adventure to them. Bird watchers on the other hand are believed to watch birds near their homes and sometimes in their back yards. Different people have different opinions about this. However, the terms basically mean the same thing. Birding is a very fun activity and can be quite exhilarating.

 

How to Become a Birder

Majority of the people who are involved in birding are passionate about watching birds and learning more about the different species for fun and research purposes. Birding is however a great hobby. It is an activity that will enable you to learn a lot and will also make you very adventurous. This is because as you continue, you will want to see more and more birds and to do that; you will need to travel to different locations.

 

There is no specific way of becoming a birder. With the right equipment, you can start bird watching in the simplest way possible. It is however advisable to join a person who has a lot of experience in bird watching. This is important because they are able to give you some tips on where to find the birds, how to use the field guide and they are able to share the experience with you.

 

Birding alone for the first time can be really boring especially if you do not know the different types of birds or what to look at. It is therefore important to get company from someone who is passionate and has been doing it for a while.

 

Equipment required for Birding

Binoculars
There are certain things you require to start birding. First and foremost, you need a pair of binoculars with high quality lenses. These are important because they make it possible for you to watch birds that are a distance away. The other things a birder needs are field guides, cameras and high quality lenses. A field guide is a simple guide for birders that has a number of pictures of different birds. When you see different birds, you can compare them with the pictures in your field guide in order to know which bird is which and what they are called.

It is very important to be careful when choosing binoculars. This is because there are different types of binoculars in the market. To make sure you have the best binoculars for you, there are several things you should consider.

 

First and foremost, you need to consider the price of the binoculars and your budget. You need to consider your budget because it enables you to narrow down your search to the binoculars that fall within your price range. You also need a pair that is easy to carry and is comfortable on your eyes. The comfort of the binoculars is mainly determined by how easy it is for you to see through the lens.

 

Last but not least, you need to consider how light the binoculars are. This is important because birding may involve long distance walking. You need to carry very light equipment in order to get far ad see as many birds as possible.

Field Guides
When it comes to field guides, there are two types. There is one that uses illustrations and drawings of birds to give you an idea of the type of birds and there is the one that uses drawings. Birders have different preferences when it comes to field guides. It is advisable to have a look at both types in order to decide which one among the two would work the best for you.

 

Field guides are normally found in book shops and are quite affordable. Another tip on choosing field guides is to choose depending on the side of the country you live. For instance, if you live on the eastern side, it is advisable to go for a field guide that has information on the eastern part only. This is important because it makes it easier for you to match the birds you see since most of them will be include in the guide.

Camera & Lenses
When choosing lenses and cameras, it is important to ensure you go for the best in the market. This is because you need high quality pictures in order to be able to identify the different birds you see and to make your experience even more enjoyable.

How to Find Birds

The great thing about birding is the fact that birds can be found anywhere all over the planet. Most people who are just starting out start by watching the birds from their back yard and as they get more experienced, they move to specific locations. It is important to start with places around your home, parks and other nearby places. The best places are where there are trees since birds are likely to be on trees since they rely on trees to build their nests.

Correct Location
There is no correct location when it comes to bird watching. You simply need to go where the birds are. Places that have a lot of trees tend to have the most birds compared to those that do not. You can join a bird watching club or join a birder who has been doing it for a while. This will help you identify the different and best places to watch birds in your areas and will make it more fun for you.
Seasons
Seasons are very important when you are a birder. This is because bird numbers are affected with changes in the seasons. During spring and fall, birds tend to migrate to different locations. In these seasons, you will be able to spot a large number of birds since they normally move in groups. In the winter, you will not be able to see as many birds since most of them migrate to other places.

The breeding season is another season where birds are not in large numbers. In this season, you can visit the birds’ nests but it is important to be very careful not to disturb the birds since this is a very important stage in their lifecycle. Again, having a friend who is an experienced birder will enable you to know where to find birds during different seasons.

 

Movies & Videos

One of the good movie which you can watch is “The Big Year”, It’s a very interesting movie and its about competition held every year in US for bird watching. The people who identify and mark the maximum number of birds in a year would win this competition.  In this movie you can see top 3 stars fighting to win the Big Year. I liked this movie because for me who love birds, this is kind of interesting and adventurous.

privilege to carry everything to God in prayer! Oh, what peace we often

   G     C            G             D    G                      C
forfeit, oh, what needless pain we bear all because we do not carry

    D                  G
everything to God in prayer.

 

(Verse 2)

G                      C       G                   D      G
Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere? We should never

        C        D                       G      D               
be discouraged, take it to the Lord in prayer. Can we find a friend so

    G      C        G                D      G                      C
faithful? Who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our every weakness,

D                       G
take it to the Lord in prayer.

(Verse 3)

G                      C       G                      D      G
Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care? Precious

                     C     D                       G     D    
Savior, still our refuge- take it to the Lord in prayer. Do thy friends

           G           C      G                D     G        
despise forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer. In His arms He’ll

           C            D                       G
take and shield thee, thou wilt find a solace there.

 

I’ve found a friend in Jesus

Jim Rohn’s Teaching

 

Jim Rohn was one of the best motivational speaker in the world. His messages are very profound, filled with wise thoughts and deep thinking.  He is one of my favorite speaker. Here’s few quotes which I’ve copied from different sources. Its inspires me every time I read it. I usually try to read these once in a month.

 

1. There are no new fundamentals

2. Some things you have to do everyday. Eating seven apples on Saturdays night instead of one a day isn’t going to get the job done.

3. Don’t just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.

4. Don’t bring your need to the marketplace, bring your skill. If you don’t feel well., tell your doctor, but not the marketplace. If you need money, go to the bank, but not the marketplace.

5. We get paid for bringing value to the marketplace. It takes time to bring value to the marketplace, but we get paid for the value, not for the time.

6. Here’s the major problem with going on strike for more money: You cannot get rich by demand.

7. One of the best places to start to turn your life around is by doing whatever appears on your mental "I should" list.

8. You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.

9. Learn to express, not impress.

10. You cannot speak that which you do not know. You cannot share that which you do not feel. You cannot translate that which you do not have. And you cannot give that which you do not posses. To give it and to share, and for it to be effective, you first need to have it. Good communication starts with good preparation.

11. Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.

12. Real persuasion comes from putting more of you into everything you say, words have an effect. Words loaded with emotion have a powerful effect.

13. Communication is the ability to affect other people with words.

14. The more you know, the less you need to say.

15. We need to teach our children how to debate the major life issues. Debate strengthens their beliefs and enables them to defend themselves against ideologies that are going to come their way.

16. When you know what you want, and you want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.

17. Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.

18. All discipline affect each other. Mistakenly the man says, "This is the only area where I let down". Not true, Every let down affects the rest. Not to think so is naive.

19. The best time to set up a new discipline is when the idea is strong.

20. Sharpen your interest in two major subjects: life and people. You will only gather information from a source if you are interested in it.

21. Emotions will either server or master, depending on who is in charge.

22. Measure your emotions. You don’t need an atomic explosion for a minor point.

23. Show your contempt for the problem and your concern for the person.

24. Be sensitive to the plight of others. You have to know about the tragedies as well as the triumphs, the failures as well as the successes.

25. The more you care, the stronger you can be.

26. Showing a profit means touching something and leaving it better than you found it.

27. The formula for disaster is: Could + Should + Won’t.

28. Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don’t fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.

29. Nothing teaches character better than generosity.

30. Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.

31. Happiness is not an accident. Nor is it something you wish for Happiness is something you design.

32. Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.

33. Make sure the outside of you is a good reflection of the inside of you.

34. Take good care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.

35. Nothing is more powerful for your future than being a gatherer of good idea and information. That’s called doing your homework.

36. Attitude is greatly shaped by influence and association.

37. Don’t spend most of your time on the voices that don’t count. Tune out the shallow voices so you will have more time to tune in the valuable ones.

38. You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going? What do they have me thinking? And most important, what do they have me becoming? Then ask yourself the big question: Is that okay?

39. Don’t’ join an easy crowd: you won’t grow. Go where the expectations and the demands to perform are high.

40. Don’t use your mind for a filing cabinet. Use your mind to work out problems and find answers; file away good ideas in your journal.

41. The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not a bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humbler, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.

42. We must learn to help those who deserve it, not just those who need it. Life responds to deserve, not need.

43. Leaders must not be naive, I used to say; "Liars shouldn’t lie, " what a sad waste of words that is! I found out liars are supposed to lie. That’s why we call them liars-they lie! what else would you expect them to do?

44. When dealing with people, I generally take the obvious approach. when someone says, "This always happens to me and that always happens to me. Why do these things always happen to me? " I simply say, "Beats me. I don’t know. All I know is that those kings of things seem to happen to people like you."

45. Lifestyle is the art of discovering ways to live uniquely.

46. Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not . Let others leave their future in someone’s else’s hands, but not you.

47. How long should you try? Until.

48. To attract attractive people, you must be attractive. To attract powerful people, you must be powerful. To attract committed people, you must be committed. Instead of going to work on them. You got work on yourself.. If you become, you can attract.

49. The most important question to ask on the job is not "What am I getting?" The most important question to ask on the job is "What am I becoming?"

50. The key factor that will determine your financial future is not the economy; the key factor is your philosophy.

51. Don’t borrow someone else’s plan. Develop your own philosophy and it will lead you to unique places.

52. If you learn to set a good sail, the wind that blows will always take you to the dream you want, the income you want, and the treasures of mind, purse, and the soul you want.

53. Philosophy is the sum total of all that you know and what you decide is valuable.

54. Initial response illustrates a great deal about someone’s personal philosophy.

55. You say , "The country is messed up." That’s like cursing the soil and the seed and the sunshine and the rain, which is all you’ve got. Don’t curse all you’ve got. When you get your own planet, you can rearrange this whole deal. This one you’ve got to take like it comes.

56. Take advice, but not orders. Only give yourself orders. Abraham Lincoln once said, "Since I will be no one’s slave, I will be no one’s master."

57. You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. You don’t have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes.

58. Your paycheck is not your employer’s responsibility; it’s your responsibility. Your employer has not control over your value, but you do.

59. The guy says, "When you work where I work, by the time you get home it’s late. You’ve got to have a bite to eat, watch a little TV, relax, and get to bed. You can’t sit up half the night planning, planning, planning, " And he’s the same guy who is behind on his car payment!

60. To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, whom could I ask?

61. The real problem is usually two or three question deep. If you want to go after someone’s problem, be aware that most people aren’t going to reveal what the real problem is after the first question.

62. Never attack a problem without also presenting a solution.

63. The best place to solve a problem is on paper.

64. Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing.

65. You cannot succeed by yourself. It’s hard to find a rich hermit.

66. At the end of each day, you should play back the tapes of your performance. The results should either applaud you or prod you.

67. Sales people should take lessons from their kids. What does the word "no" mean to a child? Almost nothing!

68. Don’t’ wish it was easier, wish you were better Don’t wish for less problems; wish for more skills, Don’t wish for fewer challenges; wish for more wisdom.

69. Learn to hide your need and show your skill.

70. Most people are just trying to get through the day. Sophisticated people learn how to get from the day.

71. Sophisticated people don’t leave early. The man says, "Yeah, but I want to beat the traffic." Isn’t that a great skill to have – beating the traffic!

72. One of the early signs of sophistication is not giving way to all inclinations but rather sending your emotions to school so they will learn to behave.

73. You must get good at one of two things: sowing in the spring or begging in the fall.

74. Plant, don’t chant.

75. The soil says, "Don’t bring me your need, bring me your seed."

76. If you wish to have power and influence over the many, be faithful(disciplined) when there is just a few. If you have a few employed, a few distributers, a few people, that’s the time to stay in touch and be totally absorbed-when there is just a few.

77. Be a student, not a follower. Don’t just go do what someone says. Take interest in what someone says, then debate it, ponder it, and consider it from all angles.

78. Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.

79. Success is 20% skills and 80% strategy.

80. Success is the study of the obvious. Everyone should take Obvious 1 and Obvious 2 in school.

81. Time is our most valuable asset, yet we tend to waste it, kill it, and spend it rather than invest it.

82. Never begin the day until it is finished on paper.

83. Something will master and something will server. Either you run the day or the day runs you; either you run the business or the business runs you.

84. Days are expensive. When you spend a day, you have one less day to spend. So make sure you spend each one wisely.

85. The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become. That is why I wish to pay fair price for every value. If I have to pay for it or earn it, that makes something of me. If I get it for free, that makes nothing of me.

86. Values were meant to be costly. If it doesn’t cost much, we probably wouldn’t appreciate the value.

87. Vocabulary enables us to interpret and to express. If you have a limited vocabulary, you will also have a limited vision and a limited future.

Genesis 28

Now afraid of Esau, Jacob left to his mothers father land, Where he was planning to find wife for himself. Actually it was suggested by his mother to his father and and Isaac blessed Jacob and send him for the journey. On the way in the night while sleeping he saw a dream in which a staircase from Heaven was on Earth and in Heaven he could see the Lord. And angels were descending and ascending on it. Lord then spoke to him and said, all this land will be his as God had promised his Father Isaac and Grand Father Abraham. He build a altar and called the place Bethel(House of God). He then decided that if God protects him and takes care of him then he will give 10th of whatever God gives him.
