It was a few months back that our friends John and Sarah came up with a plan to visit Hawaii, with enough time being made available to go deep into the tropical archipelago’s rich environs, including rare flora and fauna that cannot be found anywhere in the continental North America.
John said we needed at least three weeks to explore everything in his list of important places to visit, the historic Pearl Harbor and the capital Honolulu included. I was in the midst of a big professional project and could not spare much time. So, I left everything to be decided by my wife and turned to view my favorite program on ABC.
Last week my wife said that it is time to get ready and head for Hawaii. In fact she had planned everything meticulously. But casually I asked her about home security while we were away. I knew it was a stupid question just because we have piece of mind by using ADT home alarm system, the best that WV alarm companies can offer. And that is already installed.
But a few things more needed to be done like including a motion detector on our porch, smoke and heat sensors to take care of any fire hazards that can occur due to any short circuits or other reasons, etc.
Mailbox is quite important from the point of view of home security. A fully stuffed mailbox with some of the mail sticking out is a sure indication to possible intruders that the occupants of the house are away for sometime. So, I need to tell my friends to collect the mail as I would do everyday. Similarly I have to ask them to pick up newspapers and magazines left by the newsvendors.
Open windows and doors are to be securely closed so that intruders do not find it easy to enter the house. Dust and dry leaves that get accumulated around the house also show that no body is using the house. I have to ensure that somebody cleans them up and do not allow them to accumulate.

An actor or actress who leaves behind a string of flops right from the debut movie can be quite unheard of in any film industry anywhere in the world. If the star performed remarkably well, earned critical acclaim and fan following he/she may survive one or two movies after the debut, though the films could be hopeless flops in the box office. But South Indian films actress Charmi is such a talented actress that she survived several flops in all the major language film industries in South India, like Tollywood, Kollywood and Malayalam film industry.
The 22-year-old Charmi Kaur (also spelled as Charmy or Charmme with or without the surname Kaur), born in Mumbai, India in a Punjabi family, raised and educated in Mumbai, had her debut in the Telugu film Nee Thodu Kaavali (2002), which was a big flop. But Charmi’s talent, future potential as an actress and, of course charm, was noticed by the South Indian film industry.
Charmme has acted with such stars as Simbu, Venkatesh, Akkineni Nagarjuna, Prabhas, Siddarth, Ravi Teja, Sumanth, Nitin and Jr. NTR. She has acted in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam (Kaattu Chempakam in 2002), and Kannada (Lavakusha in 2007) films.
Her noted flops include Nee Thodu Kaavali, Kadal Azhavatillai, Kattuchembakam, Sri Anjaneyam and Chanti. But Charmy had a big box office hit with the Telugu film Gowri (2004) in which she was paired with Sumanth. It was followed by the success of the movie Mass (2004).
Charmme's most successful film so far can well be Anukokunda Oka Roju, for which she was the winner of Santosham Best Actress Award. It was a heroine-oriented thriller and her performance was acclaimed by critics.
Charmme's other notable successful movies include Chinnodu, Rakhi, and Mantra, another thriller with Charmme in the lead role.
Now Charmi is one of the most successful and bankable actress of Tamil and Telugu films, and she has a huge fan following.

I think the talented Indian actress Ileana D'Cruz, who has acted in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi movies with some of the best performances, has the most misspelled name among celebrities. Her name is often written as Illeana, Illiyana, and many more variations.
