Thanks for the update. I think the writing was on the wall when your posts
started dropping off noticeably in the past several months, but I'm glad that
you will each continue blogging in your own forums. Best of luck to both of you
in the future, and thank you for many informative, lovely posts.

I would appreciate it if you could let me know when the temple celebrations happen during the Tamil month of Aadi - is it Aadi Kirthigai or Aadi 18?
