Are you refering to my textile? Its Ralph Lauren that I purchased from the US and its apparently been manufactured at Godfather's factory in Bangalore according to him.

So - if you like it - all credit goes to me for my choice

If you dont, all credit goes to Godfather.

Friday the 13th went off very well. For my experience with the left rear-view mirror see the following thread:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...tml#post499570 (Real use of Left Side Rear View Mirror !!)

There was one moderate braking effort needed on the Expressway which gave me some cause for concern. An Alto guy is in the middle lane, going very slowly in the rain behind a lorry. I approach behind in the middle lane at 120 kmph. I give indicator to the right lane to overtake, and simultaneously the Alto guy also gives right indicator to pass the lorry. I then immediately throw my indicator to left, take a quick glance at the left rear-view mirror and start to cut to the left lane. The lorry guy *suddenly* cuts to the left lane ahead of the Alto. as I am already in the process of changing lanes. I then immediately cut back to middle lane. Guess what? The Alto guy also changes his mind and gets back to middle lane!! Had no time to make another sharp move to the right lane; braked moderately hard and the car slowed down in a dead straight line with slight screeching of the tyres. So that experience sums up my Friday, the 13th; it also illustrates the menace that slow-moving vehicles represent on the Expressway when they make lane changes without checking behind.

Wow!!! This is what you call a word which can start a thread. Probably one of the longest words I read.

For all those who said i don't mind friday the 13th or i don't have any reservations about the 13th, I'd like to ask, what other days/ dates do you have reservations about ? If you don't have any, join the bandwagon, but if you do, please say so, there is no shame in it.

BTW, i don't care a dick about friday, saturday or whatever the good day, bad day or date is, it is my convenience & my family's comfort. We will do whatever we want in any given day. No offence to anyone.
cheers

Significance for me is that its FRIDAY the 13th - so I can catch up on the new movies releasing on the date. And I did see 2 movies yesterday. Nothing untoward happened except that both the movies were not upto the mark. Now thats food for thought.

ps - am planning to watch 13 movies on the next "Friday the 13th"

With the kind of movies you choose, I am sure not even one of those 13 will be up to the mark.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Today is Friday the 13th.

Considered terribly unlucky by some. To me, it's just another day. But I know of some people that will do some strange things today.

More can be studied here.

Why don't you tell us the significance of Friday the 13th in your life? Whether it is feared, ignored or avoided? Any special significance, any phobias, anything that you would do (or not do) on this day.

Another Friday the 13th!
Guess the phenomenon is catching up here in India as well. Traffic was very less today and my manager is also on leave
