It’s amazing what the eye can see, what the imagination can do. What are your first thoughts when you see this photograph? I’ll lay odds that you need a second or two to realize what it really is …
What have you got on your computer? A few photographs of the family or, perhaps, something a little bit stronger? Before you go travelling with your favorite laptop, perhaps you ought to check out a few of the new laws being enacted around the world. Some of those graphics which you thought interesting, especially if [...]
Now, be honest, can you put your free hand over your heart and say that you’ve never done it? Believe me, I’m not waiting for any answers, those you can keep for yourselves, but have you?
I’m in that sort of mood again. I’m sure you know the kind of mood that I mean, the desire to just find something really inspiring and let my mind wander for a while. It’s not that my sex life leaves anything to desire – most certainly not! – but a little bit of spice, [...]
Have you ever had one of those days when nothing really seems to go as it should, when everyone and everything is getting on your nerves and, no matter what you do, the smallest problem can suddenly rear up and become a monster? Perhaps I’m lucky in that I haven’t had too many but, glancing [...]
The more I surf through the Internet, the more I am astonished at the wealth of information – and misinformation – that is available. At times it is hard to separate what is factual from that which people have merely invented or which, through some aberration or other, they wish to be seen as factual. [...]
So, not everyone can speak or write English perfectly, and I am certainly not the sort of person who criticises people whose first language isn’t English. But, even so i like Jermain girl.i like your armpit does strike me as being a little bit strange! It’s been lovely and quiet for a while: no one [...]
I can’t help it, now and then I have to read back through my own posts and see what I’ve written, not so much to refresh my memory, more because I actually enjoy reading my thoughts and opinions again. A little narcissistic, I know, but still. Recently I had an article published on Spellcheckers, and [...]
It’s amazing how some people are capable of twisting something completely out of proportion, and keeping a straight face while doing it. I sometimes wonder whether these people, and they come from all walks of life, actually believe what they say, or if there is some form of mechanism which cuts off commonsense and basic [...]
No, this isn’t an article about hyperactivity in children, nor is it a play on some forced abbreviation you need to fit within your 140 characters on Twitter. HAHD #6 is the final challenge in an article writing contest organised by ezinearticles where writers try to complete and submit one hundred articles within one hundred [...]
You just need to read through this article quickly to understand the characters of both people involved. The sentence which really rings true for me, which could have been from either one of the former partners, on hearing that his (still) wife is: “That’s awesome! I won’t have to pay child support!” Regardless of what [...]
Just because you’ve all been so good and patient with me, while I’ve been sweating away with reports and articles and what have you, here is an added bonus for those who enjoy some of the finer things in life.
I had considered calling this post Farcical Form-Filling Fools or something similar, and you will see my reasoning when you read further, but Small-mindedness fits the bill just as well. As you know, my friend Kellerlemming still goes to school, a trade school about ten miles away from where she lives. She changed to this [...]
I read that Mel Gibson may well be prosecuted for hitting his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva in a case of domestic violence which, following all of his previous problems, could well mark the end for him as a role model – if he ever really was one – and hero for women. There is, as my [...]
In a recent comment, François said that a decent title, one which will attract the most attention, needs to have between 11 and 17 characters. Perhaps this is because most people, thanks to the Internet, have such a short attention span, perhaps because that’s all that fits on some screens. However, I think there are [...]
