Goosebumps! An ideal word to describe the feelings of a person when he or she goes for a ride on a hot air balloon. The voyage on this ancient aircraft is absolutely thrilling and can be easily labeled as a ride to remember. Kissing massive heights by beating gravity is an impeccable experience. The hot air balloon ride has its ancient roots; it was designed centuries back but still hasn’t lost its charm and will not lose in future. The most unique fact among several postulates is witnessing the unbelievable height making you feel as a bird flying in the open sky. Several nations across the planet believe that the most incredible way of giving a panoramic view of their nation natural beauty is via hot air balloon and therefore, this business is growing.

The experience which I amassed was out of this world. Hot air balloon ride can be of group or a private one. I chose the group option as the more the number; the merrier it is to travel. I kissed the height of 3000 feet which I had done several times in airplanes but this experience was totally a different one. Cool breezes with spectacular scenes from long stretched heights made me speechless. It was a dream transformed into reality for myself as I beat the fear of height embedded in my mind.

Most people speculate that it’s cold on a hot air balloon but there’s no catch there. A hot air balloon is what it claims to be ‘HOT’. However, there is one drawback in this kind of aircraft, i.e. the safety measures but balloon agencies have taken appreciable steps to ensure passengers safety as their top most priority.

Recently, hitting of a hot air balloon with power lines at Wellingborough trapping three people was all over the news channels. Since, it happened after my memorable experience therefore, in no way it can boggle my confidence of taking this thrilling ride once again.

Lottery Groupies, This one’s for you!

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

They say, two heads are better than one and when it comes to lottery, the more the heads the better. Make sense doesn’t it? Everyone chips in a little share and if your pool of tickets has the winning number, you’ve made it, otherwise a small price to pay at your shot at riches. That’s what I had been following until say last couple of weeks when I opted out. I just couldn’t imagine my friends winning the lottery and so I decided to spend my lottery allowance on something else.  However, this little news shook me so hard that I’m thinking about doubling my lottery allowance.

The news that caught my eye was that of a female bus driver who missed out on £38 million lottery just because she pulled out a few months back. Talk about hard luck huh? The article reports that she couldn’t afford to chip in £2 a week to keep with the rest and she pulled out six months back. I personally think it was the Devil himself that made her pull out! The report says that the female is completely devastated and broke. Who wouldn’t be? After you get soo close to winning the catch of a lifetime, you let your guard down just for a while and there-slips right by your fingers and your friends are multimillionaires.

I had only pulled out two weeks back because I was just tired of waiting. Every weekend, I’d be hoping for a miracle only to get disappointed in the end. Similarly I reduced playing hours of online bingo for jackpot games and thought it’s a long wait but as soon as I saw this one, I am thinking of going back and even called up my groupies and I’m back in starting this weekend. I mean this could be Gods way of telling me, “Look out, you are next”. I just cannot afford to make a mistake such as this unlucky lady after having played regular lottery for the past two years. Even if we don’t win anything during this lifetime, just knowing that I wouldn’t have to go through this pain is enough. If you believe in luck then save on a couple of muffins and spend that on the lottery. Who knows, your two pounds could be worth millions!

Freedom is what we cherish – 21st century widows

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Losing partners especially for women were portrayed as a sad sob story and more so a life meant to be lived in sadness. However, with changing times, this scenario seems to be changing and only for the better. New Research shows that 21st century widows are having a much better time than their counterparts a century ago. This shift has not been sudden and technology has certainly helped bring about this much needed change. With technology comes better socializing and communication options for widows to communicate with friends.

Many 21st century widows are not tied down by bounds of society and in fact, deaths of their partners are empowering them. These widows even break off conventional family ties and go on solo holidays. Dr. Tracy Collins, a health scientist at the University of Salford has been researching on this evolving trend. She noted that the lifestyle of a widow in contemporary Britain has undergone radical changes. Single women in this category have better personal connections with friends or even communities and that these women are more knowledgeable on technology and well aware of various options that are available to them. Online bingo players would be a perfect reference to be given in this contest.

The research was done on women aged between 62 and 90 and most of them had already taken to new opportunities that a modern society has to offer. These are empowered women who are not ready to sacrifice their lives living in memory and sadness. One defining factor that the research pointed out in general is that these widows treat quality in a relationship to be worth much more than quantity. A lot of participants in the survey revealed that they better appreciated a relationship than before.

The modern society in which these widows live rates friends on par with family. For instance, adult children tend to move away from families and in these times, friends become an important part for filling in the void. In general, most widows in the survey mentioned that they had moved on and that their tragedies were not going to stop them from enjoying their life to the fullest. These widows feel that they are capable of going on holidays alone or even spending Christmas with friends rather than family.

Dr. Collins at the end of the research states that she believes this trend would continue as long as connectivity technology is improving. Facebook, Social networking websites or even online gaming websites can further improve chances of these widows finding someone or enjoying their lives the way they really wish to.
