Friendship, ah friendship… hmmm

Some time back I wrote a piece on friendship and those kitschy, gushing emails drenched in puppies and kitties and pastels that end up in my Inbox rather often. At first they annoyed me just a bit – after all, I’m not a puppies and kitties kind of girl. But after a while, I realisedContinue reading “Friendship, ah friendship… hmmm”

Crossing the bridge

Life runs in cycles, at least mine does. Times when everything goes according to plan – or better than plan. One good thing leads to another, even better thing. People are happy and productive. Ideas flow and the energy to implement them gushes like a fountain. It’s those times the song, “Walking on Sunshine” wasContinue reading “Crossing the bridge”

Just say NO! to porn

No, I’m not talking about naked people getting it on in various configurations, positions and places the rest of us probably couldn’t manage if we tried. That’s old school.

I suppose it’s a matter ofContinue reading “Help! My Facebook friends are spamming me!”

Blogging is a saintly exercise

I’m a month into this blogging thing, and have discovered it’s one of the most fun, creative things one can get up to on the computer. And even when I’m off the computer, I’m thinking what I’m going to post next, wondering who is reading what I’m writing – and what do they think? ThenContinue reading “Blogging is a saintly exercise”

No phones, no internet, oh no!

The first thing we need is electricity. Without that, nothing works at all. Secondly we need our communication tools – the telephone and internet. Life as we know it springs from those two things. I live in the woods. The road down here has been paved for less than 20 years and is barely wideContinue reading “No phones, no internet, oh no!”
