    Hi Ummon,

    I am surprised… this is really something I fail to understand… many of the things which you have written are soo… sooo. like me… just to name a few… Beer with 7UP, Butterscotch, to get up in the morning 10 minutes more… ,One wish: That money didn’t play such an important role in how people are treated.. and many more. I think though you have not tagged me.. I might as well take it up sometimes … and just gape at the similarities…

    take care

    This sure is good topic for my next post ‘cos I’m devoid of any new ideas at the moment 😀

I would love to hear your feedback. So write to me: umm.of.on@gmail.com
