Happy to Get Up for Office and Happy to be Back in Evening!

That’s office for you, the second home. Even Starbucks at it’s popular best called themselves only ‘the third home’

There’s talk about ‘end of office’, zoom replacing bricks and mortars offices!

I remember days of business setting up, when most time like 18 hours in a day spent with office colleagues.

And the whole building of 6 floors in my care, when I personally met and spoke to everyone of 120 staffers, every day in what I called ‘Management by Walking Around’

Office is important when you rate your success with how you are remembered.

Like everything else, this too will pass!

And we will be happy to get up in the morning to go to office, and happy again to come back home in the evening.

Book Blitz- ‘Belters, A Space Oddity’, By Greg Alldredge.


I am doing a Book Blitz for the Book ‘Belters, A Space Oddity’, By Greg Alldredge”, thanks to Shalini and her Digital Reads Blog Tour.


While humanity races toward the stars…

…They never expected to find company.

The Earth is dying, fractured by conflict, pollution, and disease. Old divisions make the jump to space. Can they survive?

Life spreads, as the Moon, Mars, and Ceres all become hubs for human expansion. Earth provides an ever-ready source of bodies willing to risk all for space.

For the wheelchair-bound Jacob, a chance to leave proves a no brainer…

… Freedom waits for him. Zero gravity becomes his great equalizer.

All is not bliss. Secretive corporations call the shots. Humankind struggles to find a place in the dark, free of Earth’s influence.

An unexplained gamma-ray burst threatens the delicate balance. Weapon, alien, or terrestrial, the cause must be discovered.

Three unlikely ships join together in an extraordinary interplanetary adventure. All to seek the truth and discover what lies beyond.

Follow humanity as they make a leap to the stars, long before discovering Far Reach Station.

Get Belters now.





Two-liter paint cans were lobbed at the front of the car, covering the front windshield and blocking Lea’s view of the gate into the CBD.

Without help, she would be lucky to reach the safety behind the wall. If the sensors on the car were disabled, she would be screwed. No matter how thick the armor, a determined attack would eventually find a way inside.

A series of pops and white plumes of smoke was the only indication help was on the way. Despite the heavy filtration system of the vehicle, she tasted the sting of pepper spray. Guards on the wall covered her approach.

Never to let passengers stress out over the environment, the car increased the oxygen level in the cabin while turning up the volume of the insipid relaxation music. “Remain calm, the situation is under control.” The inane mechanical voice spoke softly to her.

Today wasn’t the day she’d be pulled from the safety of her ride to be murdered in the streets by club-wielding thugs. Though she expected that might be the way she one day would meet her end.

Lea relaxed slightly. The way to the CBD cleared under the rain of teargas canisters. The defenders of the gate moved to suppress the crowd. A line of plexiglass shields and truncheons marched toward the transport.

On the wall, mounted water cannons poised to strike the mob with high-pressure jets of saltwater.

Lea’s celebration proved to be short-lived. An explosion rocked the car. The storefront next to the gate erupted in a flash, shredding protesters and defenders alike before her eyes. Lea could no longer hear the hum of the drive wheels. The ringing in her ears covered all other sounds. The steady ring of automatic fire pummeled the walls of her chariot.


Greg Alldredge grew up reading all the excellent Science Fiction and Fantasy of the past decades. He hopes to add his voice, in a small way, to the giants of the genres. He wants to write stories he himself would want to read and hopes to be successful as a storyteller first.

He is currently living out of a suitcase, with his wife Connie and no pets. They travel too much. Please enjoy the journey.

Book Blitz- ‘Belters, A Space Oddity’, By Greg Alldredge.

Keto, Ketone, Belly Fat, Muscles, Six Packs!

Health is evolving and in focus with the pandemic of Coronavirus. Immunity is highly desirable and you’re what you eat and also when you eat.

Fat was bad till a decade ago, and now good fat is really good. One of the interesting forwards is Avacado saying to the mirror ‘I may not look good, but I am good fat’.

There’s at least one consensus, belly fat is bad! And we want to get rid of it, come what may!

It’s not easy, there are so many calculations, calorie counts, calories from carbohydrates, from fat and even proteins.

And then the brain likes ketones.

We want everything. So eat less, have good fat, get into ketosis, exercise, fast, build muscles, look good, stay healthy! All!

Here’s dinner of toasted multigrain bread, with fresh avocado and moringa leaves on top, and egg fried in butter with pomegranate seeds to decorate.

Keto, Ketone, Belly Fat, Muscles, Six Packs!

All Natural Alternative to Sugary Sweets!

It was the food photography and details of @neethu.nambiar1 that I got interested in food art.

Here’s an all natural and healthy and of course delicious alternative to sugary fruit salad or ice cream.

Neethu introduced me to chia seeds and the health benefits of it are amazing.

I have chia seeds, soaked in coconut milk and refrigerated for the right consistency.

On top of a layer of chia pudding, here I have scooped winter melon and then some pomegranate seeds. Another layer of chia pudding, then a layer of crushed pineapple, topped with slightly salted and roasted peanuts. Then a layer of papaya. Alternative these till the glass is full. Pay some attention to design and food art.

The result is, all natural, healthy and most delicious dessert. I didn’t even have to add natural honey.

Totally good, healthy and enjoyable!

The Largest Honeycomb From the Old Oak Tree!

A large silver oak in our land in Bangalore fell in the recent windy turbulent weather. Along with came this large honeycomb.

The bees abandoned their beautiful architectural work without leaving any honey. In fact two hives in a nearby building were abandoned by bees in the rain and wind.

My estimate is that this comb would have yielded about 20 litres of honey at the right time.

The bees must have started work on their new home somewhere.

Love Handles, How to Handle Without It!

The Times of India’s ‘Sunday Times’ last Sunday carried an article titled ‘In The Mood For Self-Love’. The survey based story about the individual behaviour of people stuck in lockdown is quite revealing and comforting to those who actually have that behaviour.

The story here is not exactly about that story, but related one or frankly complimenting to it.

I have taken working out seriously along with strict intermittent fasting, during the lockdown, burning some crazy calories to the tune of 1700, and naturally it shows.

Then the self-love factor prompts images like the one here, reflecting the results of that workout passion.

And one has to be in a position to be a ‘self critique’ while practising self-love. That’s why I am focusing on the ‘love handle’ still remaining on my waistline.

Self-love and the love per-se will be enhanced if I manage to get rid off it. That’s still love without handle, an enhanced and more effective version.

Love Handles, How to Handle Without It!


I am doing a Book Blitz for the book ‘The Honest Liar’ by author Leslie Georgeson, thanks to Shalini and her Digital Reads Blog Tour.
Book blitz info: The Honest Liar
Series Blurb:
THE PACT DUET: Two friends. One pact. A dangerous plan with an elaborate deception. In a world where they must rely on each other to survive, how far will each of them go to honor the pact?
Nobody likes a liar.
Yet sometimes lies are essential.
In my world, the truth can kill.
For years I tried to escape the cartel.
But will I ever be free of its pull?
I have a Big Plan, and no one is getting in my way.
Not even a stubborn, sexy cop who won’t keep her nose out of my business.
Jamie Sanderson is determined to end me.
But she doesn’t know how powerful I am.
Even so, some things are beyond my control.
Now she’s in danger.
I will do whatever is necessary to keep her safe.
I don’t want to hurt Jamie, but I’m already buried so deep in the lies that neither one of us will emerge unscathed.
Is losing her really worth seeing my plan to fruition?
The front door of the business opened and people spilled out of the building. All men. All toting the “thug” look. Shifty eyes. Mean expressions. Most under thirty and dressed in low-slung jeans and Tees. They strode to their cars, and the parking lot emptied out.
There was no sign of Rafael Ortiz.
Keith cleared his throat. “Are you sure he’s here?”
“Well, this is his car…” I trailed off as the door opened again, and Rafael emerged from the building.
“Shit,” Keith whispered, his mouth gaping open.
Yeah, shit was right.
Rafael moved slowly, limping as he headed toward us. His face sported numerous cuts and rapidly forming bruises, his left eye was puffy and swollen shut, and bloody tissues plugged his nostrils. He looked hideous. Like he’d taken one hell of a serious beating. I flinched in sympathy. Oh, what a shame to see that beautiful face marred like that.
His open right eye focused on me as he halted before us.
“What the hell happened to you?” I blurted.
His cut lip twitched in a smirk. “Thank you for asking, Detective. Here I thought you didn’t care about me, except to find reasons to arrest me.”
Keith snickered.
“That’s not true.” My face heated. Was I really that rude to him?
He glanced at Keith. “How did you get dragged into her persecution of me? I thought you were my friend.”
Keith reddened. “I simply offered to be her backup since her partner is out sick today. That’s all.”
“I’m not persecuting you,” I denied. “I was just following a lead. I know you’re up to something. All those men who just left here are associated with a cartel.”
Rafael grunted, his right eye centering on me again. “So, once again, I’m guilty by association? This is a gym, Detective. People come here to work out all the time. To fight. To smooth out their issues.”
I huffed. “Well, you obviously just got your ass kicked. Did you get your issues worked out? You look like shit.”
He chuckled softly, wincing in pain. “Oh, you got it all wrong, Detective. I didn’t get my ass kicked. I won.”
