ALFRESCO PAGES

Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice; Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgement.

What is/Why Alfresco Pages? This is one of the questions posed to me very often whenever I give anyone my blog URL.

It all started way back in Jan 2005 when I took up this new year resolution of "Learn an English word a day" (Well, I have something to crib about this...shall do that later) Sometime in March, I came across the word 'extramural' which meant "Occurring or situated outside of the walls or boundaries". When I clicked the thesaurus option, the very first word I encountered was ALFRESCO - which means "In fresh air". I liked the word, it was kinda different. But couldn't find a context in day-to-day life wherein I could use it.

When I decided to blog, this was the very first word which came to my mind. And hence the name ALFRESCO PAGES. True to it's meaning, it has introduced me to a new world with fresh scented air everywhere - the blogosphere :)
