Every now and then we come across something that takes us back to our childhood. I saw something recently that did just that. This photograph is of an item that was for sale in an Etsy shop, and I have to admit that it wasn’t the bookmark that attracted my attention at first, it was… Read More The Written Word
Monday was a day I want to forget. It was really busy, a lot to do and a lot that HAD to be done. That’s quite enough to make one realise that it’s good to be busy. So that’s it for Monday – just ‘Thanks’, for no reason other than the fact that I can… Read More Just be thankful
Today would have been my father-in-law’s birthday. He was a lovely man, and I was very fond of him. I knew him for only a short time and he was closer in age to my grandparents than my parents.

I have written about email Spam before, and, of course, it continues to come. It still makes me laugh, so I thought I’d share just some of the spam I received overnight. I had a number of invitations and offers 1 Buy REAL Rolix watch (from realrolixCo) 2 Genuine Offer (This was from Captain General… Read More Spam, Spam, more Glorious Spam!
Gadgets can be fun, especially those that you didn’t know you needed – you know – the ones that you are given as presents. We have one of those.
