SharePoint Links Updated

As I continue to learn about the detailed workings of  SharePoint on a daily basis, I’ve been gathering and compiling SharePoint related links.

I’ve added these links on the sidebar. Hope you find them useful.  I had a need to have one repository of links related to SharePoint as I’m constantly researching new administration techniques.

Hope you find the links useful!

Dad’s Taxi – Back to being sick

So I came back to NJ last week from my wonderful vacation in India.. and as soon as I come back I fell  ill. If you remember I had a bout of food poisoning while I was in India.. I thought I had recovered.. I guess that was just in my mind..

I come back on Sunday and within 24 hours symptoms of my ailment (high fever and stomach issues return). Went to my doctor and he scared the bejesus out of me by telling me of all these scenarios: Dengue Fever, Maleria, Salmonella Poisoning..

So I’ve been taking all these tests and over the past week and am awaiting results.  So for the past 4 to 5 days I’ve been pretty much laid up and bedridden. Just over the past 24 hours have I started seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank goodness for the strongest antibiotic that I got (CIPRO).  I’m still running a temperature on and off, but the major symptoms of body aches and bathroom runs (literally and figuratively) have disappeared.

Let’s see how things go this week.  I’m able to function for a few hours at a time without the dreaded weakness and the intermittent temperature..

I know I promised everyone that I’d write more about my India vacation, but right now,  my life is just in a holding pattern till I beat this dreadful illness.

Today, I was googling dengue fever and maleria and that made me even sicker to my stomach, so I decided not to read anymore.

My beloved NY Rangers being knocked out of the playoff’s wasn’t much of a help..

Only thing that seems to work is drinking lots of fluids and taking Aleve every time I feel feverish..

Anyway, I’m sure I’m boring you with this, so I’ll stop..

Trip Log Delhi – April 3, 2010

So this is the last day of  our vacation in India.. The kids and wife are in Mumbai and I’m in New Delhi awaiting my trip back to the US tomorrow morning.

We all started early this morning from Kochin after our 5 day drip to the great state of Kerala. We had a total blast on the houseboat, the hill station in Munnar and the shopping in Kochin.

We are all weary from this long trip as we have traversed across India to see the beauty, culture and lands. We have truly seen the beautiful land that is today’s India.  No doubt, the wealth of India is in it’s people. The economics of change and the growing wealth is visible everywhere with the amount of money that is flowing in this country. Regardless of where you go,  Indians are the most friendly and enthusiastic citizens I have seen. Regardless of what they do for a living or their socio-economic status, they are all happy. From the taxi driver to business man, they are pursuing their dreams for the good life and success.

I did not meet anyone in my 3 weeks that I could say was bitter or mean spirited (Of course I exclude myself from this formula).

The wealth that is in India is amazing. Money is everywhere and there is money to be made everywhere.  It’s just a matter of where you look and how you utilize the opportunity that you are presented with.

To me this whole trip was eye opening.. Life without a doubt is different from my life in New Jersey. People do struggle no doubt about it. Yet from all my relatives that I met and all the people from the service industry (travel and tourism) that I interacted with, everyone is striving for a better life. You do not see unhappiness.

Perhaps I’m looking through rainbow colored sunglasses, but what I see is a wealthy nation that’s strength is it’s people. Technology is driving the wealth across the country. The spirit of the Entrepenneur is alive and thriving here.

I will go out on a limb and say this: Within the next 2 to 5 years, India will surpass all countries with their technological advances. The infrastructure to support this technology is a work in process across the country as you will witness the road construction going on everywhere in the country.

The problems that India continues to face is: Corruption at all levels, and population growth that continues to grow unabated.

From the places I visited this time,  below is my ranking of places that I  find to be the best places in Incredible India!

  • Munnar (Hill Station Retreat)
  • Kochin (the Houseboats tour)
  • Goa (Beach Resorts)
  • New Delhi (Tourism)
  • Pune (Visiting Relatives)
  • Mumbai (Shopping/Food)

I have yet to see all of what India presents, but I plan to do so over the next few years, as Dad’s taxi continues to explore the country that he is proud to say is in his DNA.

As I’m fully recovered (thank god) from the bout of food poisioning,  I realize that what I love the most (food) is the true reason for any ailments that befall me when I come to India.

After my return, I’ll go back and update my travels with additional thoughts on my visit.
