End of a tradition – SNF with Faith Hill

End of a tradition to my family. The drum beat that roared and an electrifying voice that commanded “Waiting all day for…” at exactly 8 PM that made us flap around for last minute grabs and flock around the TV panting on Sunday nights for three glorious NFL seasons, the perfect rendition of Faith that caught the pulse of the football fans all over the country, it’s a thing of the past now. We’ll miss you Faith Hill. To my family, SNF is never the same without you. http://ow.ly/kJxjx

It’s a nice world out there!

As a mom, I worry about the big bad world my kids will be stepping into when they grow up. We hear about people with twisted minds that walk into schools, prayer houses, malls, homes, movie theaters and take down innocent lives.

Changing my blog title

changeHello everyone,

I am changing the name of this blog to “My Thoughts and Keystrokes”. Here’s how this happened:

History: I started a personal blog in blogspot somewhere in the end of November 2012 and published a few posts. It is called my thoughts and keystrokes@ blogspot.com. In January, SM Tools course has started and as you all know, we were required to start a wordpress blog.

So? Since I am promoting my own blog on my Facebook page, I’d like to integrate both my blogs for ease in keeping track of posts, members and comments. I’m also hoping this keeps the Facebook page – blog connection much simpler.

How about followers/members?: I am only changing the name of this blog to “my thoughts and keystrokes” instead of “Lakshmi Writes”. However, I’m not changing the URL to this blog. It will still be lakshmiwrites.wordpress.com. So those of you following me or have your blogs linked back to me don’t have to update my blog title. This change only affects my blog name, not the URL.

How is this blog going to be? I have just imported the posts from my other blog and filed them under different categories. This blog’s scope will now be broader, not just social media.

Hope to see your continued support.

Thank you,


Of Grammys and Twitter

Since I host some of the events the Indian Association of my part of India organizes annually, I pay close attention to the hosts of any show- on TV or on stage. I thought LL Cool J did a great job of presenting one of the most watched shows of the year. Continue reading
