Happy 2nd day of Dashain to everyone. Hope yesterday was a great Ghatasthapana and I hope everyone who celebrates Dashain got a good start to their barley seed kalashas.

Woman talks in tongues I swear! Only thing I got out of the whole post was beer and I ain't sure I got that right neither.

Bawanna, no beer, well at least not in my comment. Dashain is a multi day celebration, day 1 yesterday (if it WAS day1 yesterday), is kind of one of the bigger parts, where they plant barley seeds in a pot called a kalasha. Day 7 is the next big day of the celebration where the barley has sprouted into grassyness and is a big parade. Day 8 is the day (night) of the blood sacrifices, Day 9 is the only day all year that the major temple is open to the public and also the day of the military blood sacrifices (the buffalo like the videos from last year when the gurkhas sacrificed the watermelon instead) and Day 10 is the day of the blessings. So perhaps I was off a couple days and Auntie meant that Day 10 was yesterday as this is known as the Dashami and is the day everyone visits their elders to receive their blessings.

umm, at least that is how I understand it. Anyone that knows more I am more than willing to defer to.

I thought Barley was a beer ingredient. Now I know it's a grassyness. Your pretty wicked smart on this stuff.

Can't believe I'm allowed to share the same air.

I think that it's actually the ninth day: "This year Dashain festivals is from September 25 to October 07, 2014. The tenth day of Dashain - Vijaya Dashami, the tika day is on October 3, 2014."

Ok, I'm afraid to ask but what happens on October 7th?

That's the day me mum found me under a rock. Threatened to put me back ever since.

Bookie your all over the road! I think your inspection has expired in New Hampshire, Virgina and maybe Iowa?

Hehe, I think Bookie's inspection has expired in a lot more places than that... fortunately he doesn't strike me as someone that pays a lot of attention to that.

If he's consistent his car or possibly pickup has one of the crank handles on the front. I hope so anyhow, that would complete the overall picture quite nicely.

Close your eyes and ponder it, Cutie Curl I'll prime, you go out and crank. We'll get this mutha running yet, and then it's straight away to put out or get out hill.
