Hi all, I’m going to begin this post with a bit of catching up on the comments made on previous posts by some who were a bit confused or made comments that needed answers.
First up, thanks for all the names suggested for my new washing machine, there were some good suggestions but it was a brand new reader “Gette” who refers to her husband as iPastor that planted the seed of playing around with the Apple range of iEverything that led me to “iPlod” as the perfect description of my new Front Loader, I was nearly swayed by son Marcus’ suggestion of “John Deere” as my daughter and son in law have a John Deere Front (end) Loader.
I must say I was a bit surprised to read that at least one reader hadn’t hung laundry on a line for 20 years, there may be city’s in the world where pollution would stop me from drying laundry on a line but Gympie is certainly not one of them, and in fact some of the pollution comes from people relying on electricity (and the pollution caused by its generation) to perform tasks that have such simple alternatives.
I only had one comment that referred to the “SnapShots” feature I installed as gobble-de-gook but in case there were others; SnapShot is the tool which brings up a small “snapshot” of any links or pictures in my post, the idea being that this may well be all you want to know about the link or pic. thus saving the time of opening all such links fully, it can be turned off by clicking the top right corner if you don’t want to use it.
From my last post Val queried “click to enbiggen” this just means click on the photo to enlarge it, but I like the word enbiggen… well OK, the pretend word.
It also seems that from a pure accounting point of view the “Beer/Tax” illustration may not be 100% accurate, but it’s a good story… Please read my disclaimer!!
Now that’s all cleared up, what can I blog about??
I had a most unexpected visitor this afternoon, some of you may recall that I mentioned that my youngest son Bruce and his wife Jane had separated about September 2006, they both live in
She has a brother living in Brisbane and a sister 150 klm north of Gympie as she was visiting them and passing through Gympie she called in to say hello, I am delighted that she felt comfortable in doing this now that she and Bruce have separated, and the fact that she said goodbye Dad when leaving was also pleasing, as I have told both of them I would much prefer they were still together and
happy but if this can’t be I’m not going to lay blame on either one of them, as
they both explained it was a breakdown of a marriage, (not at all unusual
now-a-days) not a crime committed by either one of them.
I also had a phone call from Marcus this evening, he expressed some concern over the rather disastrous ride the share market has been giving to we investors over the last couple of weeks, I assured him that unless I needed to sell shares when the prices were way down the losses are only “paper losses” and the stock market will bounce back again.
This news seemed to put his mind at ease as the specter of his inheritance
dwindling away was removed, when I also explained there was much more danger
of me using the money rather than losing it he went quiet again!!!!
(not really…. my kids are all a source of great pride to me).
Now that's as nice a pair of Boobies as you're gonna find anywhere.
I'll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make
