Perhaps for Christmas I will buy a watch.
Why didn't you ask us for suggestions on winter tires?

I think that was the plan all along. She misled us by asking for suggestions for a watch so we wouldn't know about the winter tires. Ridiculous!!

What is winter tires?










copy/paste from the net ...

instead of Nehru's,
Honorable former president
Mr. A P J Abdul Kalam's birthday should be celebrated as children day

जिस व्यक्ति को जूनून की सीमाओ तक धूम्रपान का व्यसन था,
जिस व्यक्ति के कई औरतो के साथ अवैध संबन्ध रहे थे,
जिस व्यक्ति की मृत्यु STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) से हुई थी,
जिसके कपडे तक धूल कर विदेश से आते थे,
जब निर्धन देशवासियो के पास रोटी नहीं थी तब उसका व्यय 13000/- प्रतिदिन से अधिक था,
जिस व्यक्ति के कारण धार्मिक आधार पर देश का विभाजन हुआ हो,
जिस व्यक्ति के कारण देश कश्मीर गंवाने के कगार पर बैठा हो,
जिस व्यक्ति को चीन के साथ उपजी समस्त समस्याओ का केंद्र माना जाता हो,
जो व्यक्ति सरदार वल्लभ भाई पटेल जी के अधिकार पर अतिक्रमण कर स्वयं प्रधानमंत्री बन बैठा हो,
जो व्यक्ति देश के पहले घोटाले (जीप घोटाला) का सूत्रधार रहा हो,
वह कैसे किसी बालक के लिए आदर्श या प्रेरणा का स्रोत हो सकता है?
फिर क्यों कैसे पथ भ्रष्ट लोगो के नाम पर बाल दिवस मनाया जाता है?
क्यों ऐसे लोगो का महिमामंडन किया जाता है?.
.
यदि आप सोच रहे है की उपरोक्त का सम्बन्ध जवाहर लाल नेहरू से है तो यह मात्र संयोग नहीं है !!!

So, from Watches to Nehru. he actually started off HMT, which is going to be a relic now (like many other PSUs).

Now, what is actually wrong with points 1-3. One can smoke and womanize and still lead a country (Like Bill Clinton)

If every one is a Brahmachari like Modi, there will be an open invitation to Love Jihad (unless peaceful guys also follow Kalam).

Good tip. i might end up taking a basic $ 8 Casio. My other casio has run out of battery and it took $ 6 to replace the battery last time.

BTW, Fossil is there for $160 or so.

Good thought. If you could back it up with some grant, i would get myself a Rolex (genuine that is, not a Frolex that i had 10 years back). i could actually settle for an Omega or a Rado too.
