A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

I said I would…


…but I didn’t realize it would be so soon 🙂

Well, so here I am, planning a housewarming, and hoping all of you will be able to attend. The place needs to be done up a bit more, before it is official, but you’re welcome to come around and tell me if there is more I could do 🙂

Thanks, Solilo, Indygurl, for all the encouragement…

And Dhirubhai and Ajit, for making me go green with envy 🙂


Hi there, everyone 🙂  Glad to be here 🙂

  1. Usha, this site looks good…It’s nice and clean and easy to read…


    • Thank yo so much, Bones, such a pleasure to hear that 🙂


      • P.S. Quite a few people have moved to WordPress – is it better than Blogger?


        • Well it is a bit more complicated but yes, Bones, it has more options, esp. with replies to comments, page elements, stats, and more… most of which I am still discovering.

          Blogspot, by the way has its own wonderful benefits, and if your are comfortable with trying out new stuff, you should try wordpress. Actually it’s rather fascinating 🙂


  2. Ushus, Welcome to WordPress world. You are so good. I love the way how you take time to try new things and learn by doing it yourself. Kudos!

    Here is my blog warming gift. 😀


    • Thanks ever so much for believing I could.. 🙂 And that is enough to make me do things 🙂 I loved each minute of the time spent learning here, and all those tips, esp. with the banner were so darned useful 🙂 🙂

      thanks, endlessly :), ad infinitum 🙂


    • Just saw that awesome helmet… 🙂

      thank you… am going to do some work on it, and post it pronto with the gifts and awards. That is going to be one treasured gift, I tell u 🙂 🙂 🙂


    • whats with the helmet ?


      • Lol, I have just graduated to bikes, 🙂 🙂

        Rode my younger son’s new bike on first gear, over the weekend, in preparation for learning it so that I can gad about town. He is skeptical, but ok with it 🙂 So long as I promise not to ride it when he isnt home 🙂 Doesn’t trust me with it yet 🙂
        [It’s a Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme, for those interested :D!]

        That is why a helmet! Lovely isn’t it?

  4. Yay yay… another one on board !!! WordPress rocks as the legends of our blog samaj move from blogger to WordPress !! 🙂

    u went greeen ? and i never knew … 😉

    must have been interesting Green Woman !! 😀

    No wonder the header is Green BG !! 😆


    • lol@green bg… apart from being and feeling Green, as in Green Woman, :D, that bit of greenery is from a paddy field in front of my parents’ house, from a pic taken during a monsoon, a couple of years ago… That green has to be seen to be believed 🙂

      And thank you… @legend!!! I shall never live that down, and I had better email these posts and comments to my kids, pronto. Then they will know a lot more about me:P!!

      And yes, it feels good to be here 🙂 Complicated but good 🙂


  5. Woohoo!! Congrats!!!



  6. Kooooool….. congrats….Its lukin simple and nice..


  7. Ahan! They say there is no limit to what you can explore when the mind is without fear and yearning to learn 🙂

    You show us that every day.

    Blogger had too many constraints. And this blog looks very good. Plain white, simple and free. Suits your style.

    Happy blogging ma’am.


    • Now Soumya, what do I say to that beautiful beautiful comment? Thank you does not quite encompass it, but I know you would know 🙂

      It is also because of you that I learn, it is as simple as that 🙂 You make a good teacher, a listener, and a problem solver! How could i not learn. Lol!

      Thanks a zillion… to infinity 🙂


  8. Hey, loved your new home…great ideas, fresh colours, with lots of light and air! The header, the heading and the comments all look great. Should I think about moving too?(wondering to myself…)


    • Sindhu, do try it… make a blog and play around with it… and then decide.. that is what I did 🙂 If nothing else, you always have that option 🙂 And the best thing is this.. the way we can give more individual attention to each comment, which I really wanted to do, but could not, on blogger 🙂 Thanks for the lovely words for the new home 🙂


  9. I was actually waiting for this.After witnessing Indyeah’s switchover I knew this day would not be too far,Ushus(its a beautiful name BTW).

    Will update my blogroll rightaway.
    Happy Blogging:)
