You have heard of recycled papers, But have you ever heard of recycled hotels? This is an amazing and thoughtful business acumen. A few highly enterprising businessmen have converted
* discarded containers,
* dumped pipes
* a jail
* a tram coach
* garbage collected at beach
* wine barrels
into hotels that attarct eager and adventerous travelers from all over the world.
The images throw more light on hotels room made of French wine barrels and German trams.
I wonder why they are not all that popular in the Internet. I appreciate webecoist.com for publishing this story. Thank you web ecoist!

All are live creatures though living under camouflage and you can all these camouflages are nature's best creation. There may be more such creations from the God who has obviously chosen not to reveal all of them to man which itself is a proof that God is technologically highly advanced than man.
When I saw these pictures at webecoist, my mouth fell agape. I could not suppress my deep appreciation for the God who gave these survival methods to the creatures.
The last image is of course of a man who is trying to merge with the surroundings. What a poor attempt!
Thank you webecoist.

Karonda is supposed to be India's answer to cranberries. This how Yahoo! described it in its article http://beta.in.news.yahoo.com/mumbai-s-13-weirdest-fruits-.html
I saw the image of Karonda in Google. These red and pink fruits are quite tempting to pop them in the mouth.
I have neither tasted Cranberries or Karonda. After reading the article, I think I won't bother with the fruit which is known to leave irremovable stain.
The author of the Yahoo! article has described the taste of Karonda as below:
Biting into a Karonda, you will experience a strange, dry astringent-like feeling in the mouth. Although it definitely tastes weird, it’s really fun to eat with a little sea salt sprinkled on.
Is it true that the seeds of Karonda are used in wine manufacturing?

Every new trend and every hot fashion come to a natural end and they are replaced by new style, which becomes hot trend before cooling down. Do you remember the rose gold jewelry that stole the heart of women all over the world once? Well, the rose gold jewelry fashion lasted a little longer than expected because men too started wearing rose gold watches.
My father who went to buy gold coins for all of his daughters returned home with rose gold bracelets when I was studying in sixth standard. I screamed with delight when I first looked at the rose gold color.
I hear that the romantic rose gold jewelry might enjoy a second innings. However, I predict only youth might look at it favorably. Oldies definitely prefer the yellow gold they buy from the United States Gold Bureau, America’s largest seller of precious metals.

But there is a history behind this. During the 13th century or up to that time, girl meant any young person, male or female.
Then how did they distinguish the two?
Mostly, a female is known as a gay girl and a male as a knave girl.
Quite difficult even to imagine-eh? So, what's in a word?
There may be quite a lot of amusing facts in this category. Do you know any thing?

ET-Extra terrestrial-the movie which we all watched and enjoyed so long is still remembered and appreciated for the ingenious concept and great imagination.
Well, it seems the ET might really want to communicate with the movie producer, probably to ask if he would make another film with a live ET.
"KTVU reported scientists have received an odd signal from space and some readers may have interpreted this as a confirmed extra-terrestrial contact."-was it imagination or a desire?
Ok, it is for the technologists to interpret the signal and tell us in our terms what it is all about. In the meanwhile Allen array in California is now actively searching for more of these signals.

Are you surprised?
You and I buy gold for investment purpose or as ornaments like rings and bracelets. Gold is used in various industries that include electronic components. Because gold is a good conductor of electricity, it is used in small quantities in mobile phones.
The U.S. Gold Bureau says every cell phone has gold worth of $0.50. Ah, I see you are disappointed.
The latest trend among bullion investors is to buy gold coins from different countries. Even the Americans are actively buying Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and the Chinese Gold Panda.
However, I wonder whether the Aussies and the Chinese are showing interest in American Eagle gold coins.
One more piece of amazing information from the U.S. Gold Bureau:
Archeologists once discovered golden hats in Central Europe area. The uniqueness is the discovery was made during Bronze age!
