Many tourists visit goa for consuming cheap beer, whisky and alchoholic drinks, yet few steps are taken to ensure that the beer, drink, bottles and cans do not litter the place. In larger cities, these glass bottles or cans are collected almost immediately because the raddhi wala or scrap shop will pay a premium for the beer, whisky bottles. In middle class households with drinkers , the drink bottle will be collected by the servant of the house, who will sell it and get some extra money.
However in Goa, the empty drink bottles like Carlsberg and Royal Challenge remain littered on the footpath and drains for a long time. Not only do they make the place look dirty, during the monsoon the drains get clogged, resulting in flooding of the area. So there is an urgent need of an official who will arrange for trash collection from public areas or at least formulate rules to regulate junk dumped in public areas.
In larger cities, they will pay Rs 1 or more per bottle, why are efficient recycling systems not introduced elsewhere

I had heard good things about a program called ScanSpeeder, but I had never used it myself. I wanted to see what all it was capable of handling before spending any money on it, and that allowed me to find out that it truly is the best one for me. I like that I can put more than one photo on the scan bed at a time. Continue reading “Getting My Photos Organized Finally”
My daughter is in 6th grade, and I cannot believe the amount of homework she is given every day. She comes home with at least an hour’s worth every night, and sometimes it is much longer. She loves it though, which makes me very happy. She has been using the desktop computer that we all use, but I wanted to get her a laptop for Christmas this year. I figured I would wait and see what the best laptop offers for Cyber Monday are, knowing that I would probably not get a better deal than what the different stores offer on that day.
I was wishing that I could see what the deals were like last year, and I realized that I might be able to do it. I know that nothing is completely erased from the Internet so I did a search to see if I could look at last year’s deals, just to give me an idea what sort of deals I might be able to get this year. When I did my search, I was surprised to be taken to a site that is already promoting this year’s Cyber Monday sales. Continue reading “Getting My Daughter a Laptop on Cyber Monday”
