First Day with 100 Unique Visitors

Yee ha. Just had my first day on the blog with a triple figure Unique Visitors count. 102 to be exact. If only 6 more had come, it would have been truly auspicious. This is heady stuff for a country boy with a narrow target demographic. Fresh cream drink with raw honey and organic blueberries prasadam for everyone.

Almost, but not quite, as good a feeling as skating in Central Park, New York City, until the the endorphins kick in, and the whole world opens up before you. Similar to a good kirtan, for you nonskaters. The "runner's high" the kids at the local high school must have had today when they rallied from 2-0 behind, 2-1 at half time, to win 5-2. Which is to say I haven't quite adapted to the sedentary lifestyle yet, but I am starting to see it may have some good sides to it.

Two things:

1. "narrow target demographic."

That's niche marketing. It's very effective!

2. "Fresh cream drink with raw honey and organic blueberries prasadam for everyone."

That sounds like PURE nectar. I'm going to hold you to that - how are you going to 'offer' it to me considering I'm in Sydney?

You know the story of that brahmana. He had no means to offer anything to Krsna. He was so poor. But he wanted to offer something, but he thought that "I am so poor. I cannot offer anything." So one day he heard from the Bhagavata speech that one can offer Him within mind also. So he took it seriously, and from that day he was offering Krsna so many nice foodstuffs, collecting water from different rivers and keeping the water in golden jugs, and bathing Krsna and offering... This was... He was always thinking. And one day he prepared sweet rice and offered Krsna, and he wanted to see whether rice is..., because sweet rice, very hot, is not good. Sweet rice, the more it is cooler, then it is tasteful. But milk, if you take cool, that is not tasteful. Milk you have to take hot, but not the sweet rice. So he wanted to test whether it is too hot. So his finger burned, and then his meditation broke. He saw there is no rice but finger is burned.

Four options:

Option One: I gather bhoga, offer to RVC, chill, put into state of the art thermos jug, pack in state of the art thermos cooler surrounded by state of the art gel ice packs. Then I hand it to my son with the prepaid roundtrip ticket you send, and he flies with it to you.

Cost - $2000 US

Option Two: Prepare and pack as above, but send by UPS Worldwide Express COD.

Cost - $200 US

Option Three: You gather bhoga, offer to Deity of choice, take the remnants.

Cost - $20 US

Option Four: Mediate as aforementioned brahmana, gather bhoga, offer to Deity in mind, mediate on what it would be like to take the remnants.

Cost: Priceless. For all other options -- MasterCard.
