    Today’s Bing.com has an Amazing shot of the Mysore Palace


    Today’s pic on Bing is an amazing shot of Mysore Palace. It’s about 60 miles from Bangalore and is usually a get away for local folks. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been to Mysore or this palace. It’s open to public everyday and it’s lit up every Sunday. If you are in the neck of the woods be sure to check out Mysore aka The City of Palaces.


    It’s a perfect way to celebrate India’s 62nd Independence day. And today, she’s younger than ever…

    Bing sweetens your shopping decisions!


    I love Bing! And now here’s one more reason to love it more…


    Bing is doing double cash back for the rest of this month... there's some pretty sweet deals (up to 50$ cashback). Shopping got a lot more sweeter with Bing!
