I had no idea the Papaya had so many different uses. It is a nice photo and also your story behind the photo is interesting. I learned something new today.

I enjoy your blog. Am a regular reader.

But there is one mistake I see repeatedly... when you write the plural of a word, there is no apostrophe. It is papayas, not papaya's. Apostrophe is used when you are talking ABOUT the papaya. For example, "Papaya's benefits".

Keep blogging :)

Thanks S.
Actually with blogosphere many my kind of writers who came into writing posts, facing challenges on the use of grammar and spelling it right. Never-the- less I try and attempt to share few words with others and get corrected when pointed out...
I know one need to be systematic and disciplined when it comes to use of language, but I also feel it should not come in between the feeling of sharing and readers who respect that feeling... Perhaps we all experience the SMS language emerging in today’s' mobile users...
Thanks for being a regular that keeps me going!!
