Review ~ Pay Any Price

Hello Everyone,

   Reading any books of late? Keeping up to your new year resolution about book reading habit? Well, I have couldn't keep the book "Pay Any Price" down once I started. Here is a small review of the same. Hope it helps in choosing it as your next book.

   Pay Any Price by Ted Allbeury is by far the best novel I read when it comes to Action/espionage genre. Allbeury shows *and not tells* the life of an Intelligence officer(In this book, BOYD), the work involved, the risks, the dirty tricks, the trauma, the technology, the secrecy involved ... adding from his own experiences as a former officer in the British Intelligence Corps.

   The book revolves around CIA hypnosis experts Symons and Peterson who are involved in the killings of John F. Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy along with the CIA and the MAFIA mob.
    The experts decide to put stay in Britain under fake ids until the things back in US get cooled off. Carter *British Intelligence* discovers the men, their potential and their ways. Carter now successfully black-mails Ziggy *CIA boss* so as to gain co-operation of hypnosis experts. The experts using Zombies *people under hypnosis* kill a few spies, IRA, other trouble makers to safeguard their identities

   Gorge Walker *One of the Zombie, who killed spies under hypnosis* completes his term with the Army and starts searching for other career options. He starts having night-mares about the killings, can't remember a thing about his last year in service and all hell breaks loose.

   Debby Shaw, a former stripper, who now runs her own business also starts having night-mares and day-dreams. She is retained under section 72 involuntarily by the hospital and no one gets to know her fate, not even her boy-friend.

   When Boyd is assigned to look into the issue, by his officers at M15, he with help of his men and the psychiatrists understands the murky details about hypnosis, how the zombies are mentally abused, how the killings took place, how Carter and his team worked, how the Kennedy’s were killed,.. The book comes to end when Boyd meets his tragic fate due to his involving in the investigation.

   The book caught my attention neither due to plot nor the pace of plot. The book actually shows you the way how intelligence offices work, how intelligence agencies co-operate, how unlawful things can be done by section of powerful people in intelligence communities, how heads of various people in intelligence get chopped, how the mafia and CIA can co-operate, how the mafia take everything personal, how the life of James Bond would be, who would be right candidate for playing the James Bond, how men trained to believe none - trained to doubt check and verify everything live, how their personal lives are jeopardized by their life...


Read any books in this genre? Read this book? Got any books which you

Hello Everyone,

  Kicked off the weekend? Keeping up with your new-year resolutions? Well I ain't. Ho Ho Ho! 

   Today I started got rejected by Constant Content. I wrote my first article for them and am rejected and the reason is GRAMMAR. I dunno where I go wrong. Hence started reading the book "CREATIVE WRITING: How to unlock your imagination, develop your writing skills - and get published" by Adele Ramet. 

Here is a small excerpt form the book 


the term ‘creative writing’ may be
defined as:
Having the power to create an imaginative,
original literary production or composition
and can be applied to a very broad spectrum of writing genres.
Let me see how my writing improves overtime. I also intend to go through some grammar books.  Got any? that can help me? Read any books on creative writing? Can suggest something cool for me?

with warm regards

Walgreens -- Annual Membership -- Prescription Saving Club

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Walgreens after unsuccessful negotiations with Express Scripts, is no longer part of Express Scripts pharmacy provider network as on Jan. 1, 2012. Walgreens understands that the decision of Express Scripts hurts pharmacy patients making them go elsewhere to use their in-network pharmacy benefits. Patients with certain prescription insurance plans managed by Express Scripts are impacted. Kindly check the impact on you and also find out how few other customers are feeling at Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens

 Since the people of Walgreens are dedicated to making the costs stay flat, making life hassle free and believe that "Today, speed and convenience are undoubtedly two extremely important factors for Americans, especially in matters related to health", they are working on war-foot basis to make your experience affordable, worry-free, pleasant and convenient.

To counter these troubles, Walgreens is offering more 24-hour and drive-through pharmacies than any other pharmacy in the country. Among other steps, Walgreens is offering a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Savings Club.  An individual can join during a special January promotion for only $5, or $10 for a family membership (including spouse, dependents, pets and younger ones), and receive savings on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications. More than 400 generics are available with a three-month supply for less than $1 a week. Regular annual membership is $20 for an individual and $35 for a family.
Kindly check out the issue, plan properly to avoid hassles and stay with your trusted partner WALGREENS. Join us at on facebook using the link Walgreens on Facebook and follow us on twitter using our id Walgreens on Twitter to stay updated and reap the most out of the customer friendly WALGREENS.

Fun on Phone

Good Morning Everyone,

     How has the week started? Having fun? Living upto your new-year-resolution lists or giving them a skip just like me??

    I just want some fun, I love fun all time, So I decided to send some cool messages to everyone out their on my mobile. The first thing I sent was

    "Good Morning buddy!! Have a blessed day!!! You are looking cool"

at around seven am yesterday. You wouldn't believe the responses I got. They ranged from "Where have you seen me?" to "I still didn't wake up. Do I look cool in my underpants? Let me sleep bro!!" to "Thanks .. that's so sweet of You". I could start a good humorous conversation with all those people who wanted to know when I saw them. Enjoyed about it.

    I wanted some more fun. So today I sent the message

    "This message can't be displayed"

  to everyone around. The responses were not as such cool as yesterday. There were requests to re-send the messages, to explain the messages, some of them were reporting to me that my message couldn't be displayed blah blah .. I just enjoyed doing so.

    Are there any sure messages which get you an instant reply from most of people on phone? If yes, please share them with me!!

with warm regards

The Cartoon Network World -- Myth

Balloon Kid Flying
    Ever lived in the world of dreams of cartoons? I loved the world where people could breath out fire, have tigers for pets, jump from tall buildings using umbrella alone,  sing all day and jump with joy.

    I was surfing the net today to find out truth about some of the myths regarding the cartoons. The results are from Myth-Buster-Results

    umbrella flying, women flying, flying women, cartoon women flying, umbrella
    Women Flying Cartoon
  • Kid getting carried away due to party-balloons is possible. The experiment says a large number of balloons (3,500) are needed to lift an average 4 year old girl just a few feet off the ground. It is still possible. Refer Here

  • Ever thought of jumping from tall building using a umbrella to arrest the fall? Ever thought you would survive such a fall? Well, you are right. You ain’t any GENIE from the Arabian Nights. You can’t survive. Refer Here

    cartoon, kid creating fire from wood, fire by friction
    Creating Fire
  • Singing in the right tune, you can break wine glass. Just like cartoon characters use the skill to create avalanches, break glass – doors and such. Refer Here

    • You can create fire by the friction obtained by rubbing two sticks together. Refer Here

        Any other great cartoon myths? How do you pass your time? Do let me know.
