A Rambling Post on the Second Last Day of 2015

All houses are get ready to welcome a new year god to the houses by cleaning them up. And people buy groceries at the super markets like hibernating throughout winter.
I bought a lot of books on Kindle. They have gotten more collections these days than they used to be.
I read Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens on Christmas, admired Fred that he is always cheerful and never been untruth to Scrooge.

People work long hours in the office and we have a considerable shortage of day care centers.
Even If you could leave kids at day care, the parents have to pick up kids when they become feverish,
