RANDOM | Pashmina Shawl ...


.. wow.. I just realised that.. I've left this post as a draft exactly 2 months ago .... ... anyway .....

... Pashmina .... according to Wikipedia ... Pashmina refers to a type of cashmere wool......
and textiles made from it.......

....... the name Pashmina .... comes from .... this young girl called Pasha Hamina Sandhana .... eeer.... nope .... kidding ... ignore that young girl's name .... actually it comes from Pashmineh, made from Persian pashm (= "wool")......

.. Cashmere shawls have been manufactured in Kashmir & Nepal for thousands of years.......... but the Indians never called them "pashmina".............. but they were popularly called Kashmiri wool shawls..........

............the test for a quality pashmina has been warmth, feel and the passing the shawl through a wedding ring........

........ Pashmina accessories are available in a range of sizes,......... from "scarf" (12" x 60") ...............to "wrap"
or "stole" (28" x 80") to.............. fullsize shawl (36" x 80")......

hmmm.. whose shawl are these...? .. Don't ask me.... doesn't really matter....



... oh well... here are some more ... of the funny side.... just to get off your stress from work ....

How do you know when a geophysicist is about to say something intelligent?
When he starts his sentence with, "An engineer once told me..."


An engineer, a landman and a geologist got together at a convention and were discussing the relative merits of having a wife or a mistress.
The landman says: "For sure, a mistress is better. If you have a wife and want a divorce, it causes all sorts of legal problems."
The engineer says: "It's better to have a wife because the sense of security lowers your stress and she can be good for your Management career ladder." The geologist says: "You're both half right. It's best to have a wife and a mistress, so that when the wife thinks you're with your mistress and the mistress thinks you're with your wife, you can go out and look at some rocks."



A Geologist and an Engineer were sitting next to each other on an airplane. The Geologist leans over to the Engineer and asks if he wants to play a fun game. The Engineer just wants to sleep so he politely declines, turns away and tries to sleep. The Geologist persists and explains that it's a real easy game. He explains, "I ask a question and if you don't know the answer you pay me $5. Then you ask a question and if I don't know the answer I'll pay you $5." Again the Engineer politely declines and tries to sleep.

The Geologist, now somewhat agitated, says, "O.K., if you don't know the answer you pay me $5 and if I don't know the answer I pay you $50!" Now, that got the Engineer's attention, so he agrees to the game. The Geologist asks the first question, "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The Engineer doesn't say a word and just hands the Geologist $5.

Now, its the Engineer's turn. He asks the Geologist, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down on four?" The Geologist looks at him with a puzzled look, takes out his laptop workstation, looks through all his references, surfs the Web, and after about an hour wakes the Engineer and hands the Engineer $50. The Engineer politely takes the $50, turns away and tries to return to sleep.

The Geologist, a little miffed, asks, "Well what's the answer to the question?" Without a word, the Engineer reaches into his wallet, hands $5 to the Geologist, turns away and returns to sleep.
