I love to learn.

I love great people.

I enjoy a good game.

I am more curious about life than most folks.

Empire Avenue (http://empireavenue.com)

is the home of my mini university

and gathering place of the healers and teachers in my life.

As a hermit, the above statements are unusual.

As a senior over 71, who could not walk or talk upon joining Empire Avenue (a few short months ago) the praise I have for this wee game is nothing short of taking out a page in the New York Times.

Lili Bikes Through Ladhak

Originally posted on Smart Shots from Smart Phones:

Adventures do not get any bigger, thrilling or challenging than this. Biking expeditions through the Leh-Ladhak region have, in recent years, become one of the best ways to tour through the rugged beauty of the Ladhak, a district in the state of Jammu Kashmir, that lies in the folds of the Himalayas.

Expeditions typically range from eight to 12 days and cover anything up to 1000 kms of riding among some of the highest mountain passes and some beautiful mountain landscapes. The road, though, is not always going to be like this. The thrill of the ride comes in going over some really rough and unpaved roads, which test both biker and bike. Generally the Royal Enfield Bullet is the preferred vehicle on these trips. These bikes come in 350 and 500 cc configurations and with a huge dose of history.

The Bullet first came to India in 1956. The…

The Vishansar is the first of the lakes you encounter on the Great Lakes Trek that begins at Sonamarg and covers lakes that can only be accessed either by walking or by Pony. Vishansar is said to be lake of Vishnu. The lake lies at an altitude of 3710 meters and is about one km long.

The lake is surrounded by meadows that are a lush green from the water of the glacial stream that feed it. It is a popular gazing area for the local shepherds during this time of the year. The area is also a riot of flowers that take advantage of the bountiful water and temperate climate.

Other lakes covered by the eight day trek…

At a little over 800 meters, Matheran is not really in the running for the highest hill stations in Maharashtra, leave alone the rest of India. However, this tiny little town about 90 kms from Mumbai holds a very special place in the hearts of anyone who has visited there.

For this is the only hill station in Asia that does not allow any motorized transport, barring the ambulance run by the local municipality, on its streets. This is how nature intended a hill station to be. To get here you either take the toy train from Neral, a 11 kilometer journey through some verdant forests. Or you drive up to Dasturi point and then take a horse or trek up the approximately 2.5 kilometers to the town center.

As befitting a town of this nature the road is not tarred so it is pretty much like a jungle trek…

(4) MMS cures cancer, HIV, Malaria and most pathogen based disease for pennies per dose.

MMS destroys cancers of all kinds. The reason is that chlorine dioxide with the formula of ClO2 is an oxidizer with very unique characteristics. One important point is that the chlorine dioxide in MMS is a 1000 times more diluted than the weakest bleach. It runs through the body never touching the body but killing the pathogens. It is simply too diluted to harm the body in any way.
