when I wrote last about me having a fantastic week, one should've expected a not so good next week and thats exactly what happened. I got a bit of indigestion followed by a bad throat and cold and I was in this mode for the last couple of days.

ps: I was being haunted by the Barclays bank people about a credit card and I realized that a novel excuse for not talking to them would be "I am sick, do not disturb me". Believe me, they have the courtesy to put the phone down after you make the statement. Hooray!!!
