A few days back I had recieved a forwarded mail from my friend G. It had a list of interesting tips and facts. So, today I am sharing those in my post here. I found this information useful and I think readers might benefit from this post. If you try any of these in your day to day life, let me know how it worked for you as I haven't tried all of these myself. Many thanks to the anoynomous person who had compiled it. Hope you find it as interesting as I found them.

This space has been silent for a few days now and I am also not being able to visit other blogs. The reason being my Parent in Laws are here to visit us and I am having a lovely time with them. Reading has taken a back seat but cooking is in the forefront. I will be back soon with some tried and tested recipes and hopefully a book review in coming weeks.
Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!
