Stuck in my head

Shake your wanny fanny funky song funky song

Shake your wanny fanny fu-unky song!

I’ll give a prize to the first person who can comment with the show where that song originated.


Audio Qur'an for Ramadan

August 21, 2008

If you’re a person on the go but don’t want to get behind on your Ramadan Qur’an reading, there are a few free sites that offer audio recitation along with English translation.

Islamway radio


MP3 Qur’an Online

Any of these can be downloaded, installed on an MP3 player, or burned to several CDs.

If you have the money, there are also many Islamic bookstores that sell complete CD sets of Qur’an recitation in arabic with english translation. They run anywhere from $150 to $200. You can also buy DVD sets with added features.


Where has he been?

August 19, 2008

Well, I started a new job at a new school, and that is part of the reason why I have not been blogging much. The other reason is that I’m just a bad blogger. Shame on me!

Today I’m blogging on my new EeePC (more on that later).

Also, Ramadan is right around the corner — truly excited about that. I just pray my health will be better than it has in the past few Ramadans. I suppose that’s a sign that I’m getting old.

Anyway, back to this job. It’s a great school with a brand new building. The Library (media center) is huge with nice wooden shelves, soft new carpeting, plush lounge chairs, built-in media devices, including a projector on the ceiling, HP computers, as well as macbook laptops. The entire school is wireless as well. And my office, don’t even get me started. It’s large, complete with a refrigerator, sink, and a microwave.

I have large windows overlooking a green field and a forest near the river. I’m still getting adjusted, and that has taken more of my time than usual.

There are many issues to blog about, so expect to hear more from me soon, insha’Allah.
