    Nebraskans on HubPages?!! Sounds like a fun group -- but I don't get it. I thought you were in AZ and CW in WA? Oh well, I personally find CW's presence always welcome. She is the consummate lady!

          I will share a little about Indian Gods here: Once their was a fight between  Lakshmi and  Shani
          Lakshmi says I can make anybody fortunate where I go and Shani says I can make anybody unfortunate where I go. They both go to Vishnu to resolve who is better. Vishnu being a diplomat  says to both of them to go to the door and come back to him. Now he tells Lakshmi I like it when you arrive towards me(fortune coming) and to shani I like it when you are departing (misfortune leaving).

          Just a small tidbit from Hindu texts lol

    MM-
    Weird!  I've noticed these funny double postings before, ?  smile  (Yours--but maybe it'll right itself by the time I post this.)

    Yeah!  CW went to the University of Nebraska for her M.S. in engineering.  I was born and raised in Omaha, NE--I've just been around the country--NOW I've been settled in AZ goin' on 4 years!

    It was funny--one night on a forum thread, all these Nebraskans were coming forward to introduce themselves.  Hey!--we are a very, very exciting group. We know about agriculture and hay bailing and football, not to mention good hang out places.  If you touched down in Nebraska for a time, you TOO can join!  smile

    Laila- Thanks for starting a hub thread on my behalf. I don't know what to say I am simply too flattered. Yes I do involve myself a little too much when ever I am into something and which happens to hub pages these days..LOL big_smile

    Lita- Yes if the whole economy doesn't go up then at least we Nebraskans can go back to farming days (yeah why do you think I have a nick name called country women?) lol

    Misha- You have become a saint and I always counted on you as my guardian angel. lol

    MightyMom- The warm californian who spreads her warmth where ever she goes and glad to be at the receiving end now. big_smile

    No, I am one of a very few 'Lita's' here.  I'm always really surprised when I hear of another one.  Cool that it is your mom's name!

    CW-
    I know!  Nebraska is much more--especially yummy ungulate Omaha Steaks for Christmas.  I was just being sarcastic--cuz you probably know how it is being from NE--everybody thinks yer a farmer or a hick.

    Were you surprised to find this thread here???

    Good night all--yawn!

    What a pleasant thread!  What made me a fan of Countrywoman is the hub where she shared, she invited Jehovah's Witness that came a-knocking on her door on one rainy day, and in the comments section of her hub, she mentioned that even if she wanted to get rid of them, (as most of us would want to)  she served them coffee as she didn't have the heart to be rude to them. Not exactly a good way of encouraging a short visit. LOL! I found that classy and sweet.  At least that's how I remember her hub. smile

      WOW!! You remember such details (that's quite a memory but then if you remember the millions of transactions at bank that really is quite something). Well if it was any other day probably I would have enjoyed their conversation but then sleep is one thing I need to have in abundance and that too on a weekend (I guess I was bear in my last birth sleeping for months)...lol

      Uh-OH, CW  sad  Oh, well....  I know she's been to Nebraska, smile...  Only one who has been there knows those certain details.  I personally have never required actress looks in a friend!

      And my avatar is me, I swear, lol!  haha--but one has to wonder about somebody who uses their photo ID for an avatar....  Truth is, I hate photographs--grow up with 2 sisters all competing with that stuff and you have a tendency to turn to books.  Which incidentally, I do not regret at all.

      smile  It's OK, Miss CW.....

    Yes, I can recognise the Indian Celebrity in countrywomen's profile image because I'm an Indian. CW is not alone, there are many hubbers(male/female) having a profile image that's not of their own face, but why does it bother anyone? Don't we have the right to keep an image of our own wish?

    uh-oh, this is disappointing. sad

    No weblog, there is no problem with her using actress's pic for avatar - problem is with claiming this is her own pic. It's called lie - unless she is really this actress... IDK, it gonna be a big disappointment to me personally if she is not, and chances are she is not...

      Misha i noticed the 1.25 part in my magic hub. your spot was good man. The magician left fingers straighetened when he pulled them towards his leg and you can see clearly the whole action was very unnatural. wow, no one could have been able to see that if you didnt point exaclty what was happening. with that alone the trick is now looks very amaturish. But even then the salt shaker being pulled still cannot be explained. Any explaination for that?

    LOL Sorry Ashwin, I watched that carefully and did not spot anything with saltshaker. But I have no doubt it was the trick, not magic smile

    And no, I disagree, coin trick was not amateurish, it was performed pretty good. Remember, even after I gave you the time marker to look at, you still could not spot the trick, until I specifically pointed out what to look for? This shows the quality, you know smile

    That's the problem Misha - the lies rather than the avatar. Anyone can have any avatar they want. Claiming that it's your own pic when you could just have kept quiet??!!

        Agvulpes my hub comment box is acting up so i reply to you here buddy. After Misha pointed out at 1.25, if Cyril thats the magician can so swiftly hide the top coin then i don't doubt for one moment he could have likewise take out the bottom coin from a concealed tear or hole in his sleeves when his left hand was covering the top of the table. Thats the best logic i can think of without going crazy. and Misha yes i used the wrong word, it can never be amaturish. the guy manage to fool everyone beside around him, He is good. Did you see his Cheeseburger trick and the mobile phone trick where he pulled these 2 items out from a menu and a magazine leaving behind and empty white patch in the page where both the printed items were originally? Wish i can do that!!! lol

        i can't speak for Shalini but as for me, what i find a tad disappointing is the fact that she  claimed that the picture was indeed her, even going to the length of giving a story behind it when everybody expressed their doubts.  I respect her need for privacy and all but i just feel I was taken for a ride.

            Two days back Misha/Ashwin were their. Since Misha was 90% sure it wasn't me I wanted to disagree for fun but the part about makeup/photograph was true only thing not for public viewing.  and I was surprised that Ashwin wasn't aware of kamilini and I just was playing along. I wanted to write that hub yesterday but went to do some last minute shopping for India trip. But I will miss you all.

      Shalini- You are a happily married woman and hence care free to give your opinion. Yes two days back I was having fun with Misha but I guess I should have sorted it out that time itself. I am leaving for India in another few days hence didn't write this hub. It is very sad to see a fellow Indian woman thinking like this about another. I will leave it up to you what ever you want to think about me. As I am not here to make money(Thank God I have a decent job) but here to learn, discuss and enjoy. I thought it was fun pulling Misha/Ashwin's leg but never expected this.  I guess every good thing has an end and for me this is the beginning of the end. In a few days I will not be able to come online due to hectic schedule and I do miss all those who did understand my position even if they were not from India.

    I am somewhat new to HubPages and I was so glad to see such a nice thread that I continued reading all the compliments while thinking, "These are some really great people here!"  Then all of a sudden, the mood of the thread changed.  From the comments made, I gather CW claimed the photo to be her own and lied, but the personality that left comments and has always been polite to everyone is still the same personality, no matter the avatar.  I know Im sticking my nose in late, but I just wanted to add that.

  32. mistyhorizon2003 profile image91

    Well my support is for CW on this one, as her hub explains why she chose not to use her own image. Anyone who has read her comments on their hubs can see she is genuine and cannot help but love her. If she truly wanted to be fraudulent, why pick a famous actress and not someone who was unknown and whose image would most likely not be recognised ?????

    I do not know what to think, really, but usually want to give people the benefit of the doubt.  smile

    Just reminds me that I am here to write, basically.  I see hubpages as a great opportunity for that.

    I also think the beauty thing is a huge pressure sometimes for a woman.  kerryg has written a great hub about 'The Gaze' in society--people should have a look. 

    As an artist, I also know that photographs themselves lie--in graduate art programs there often is no differential anymore between painting and photography.   It is quite possible to make a person look very beautiful or very unattractive.

    CW: When I read your hub (I had not seen this thread) and found out the pic wasn't you, I said, a little  'oh, well" to myself, but it didn't change my perception of you as you can see by the comments I left in you hub. Your hubs on tolerance, spiritual sharing, and comments speak louder than anything, not a little photo mishap. One cannot generally fake what comes from inside our hearts.  It never occured to me to use a photo of a celebrity, it seems its popular here in hubpages.

    I personally prefer the truth or not say anything, but many of us were quite young once, and life has taught me that sometimes a joke can go too far, and integrity in everything works far better.  Not saying you lack these, perhaps the joke did go a little too far, but your intention was not malicious, it was to have some fun; however it doesn't speak of you negatively as a human being. We cannot judge another,  because most likely we have made our own little and sometimes larger mistakes in life as well. Its part of growing as a human being.  Hey, I am still your hubpages fan, there is no reason why not.  Imagine if we all  left friendships over a little misunderstanding or joke, the world would be friendless.  Perhaps you can reconsider staying? Your presence will be missed by many of your fans. smile

    In which case there was no malice in it. Most of the ones previously who have made the same claim were doing it with the intention of deceiving everyone for personal gain, but I do not think that was your intention.
