So, Queen Elizabeth is celebrating sixty years on the British throne – or is it still the Commonwealth throne? – with a whole string of parties, good wishes pouring in from all fronts and, I dare say, the usual pleas from republicans to ban the monarchy and get back to the good old days of […]

Life Enhancing?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 30, 2012 in News & Opinion |

It seems, depending on who you happen to trust and which papers you read, that coffee is now one of those must drink beverages if you want to stay alive longer. At the same time, soda is one of those must not drink beverages if you want the same, and if you want to remain […]

I’ve not been able to figure it out yet – I’m not even sure where I saw it – but I’d love to know, not for any particular reason, which clever user of languages came up with the idea of calling jobless people Underemployed. I’ve seen many strange descriptions over the last few years but […]

It’ll be really cold when…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 28, 2012 in Internet |

… I click on one of those links which people insist on sending me in their e-mails. I think that you know the sort of mails I am talking about, those which are classified as being: Most of us get them at one time or another and, once you’ve got one, you know that you’re […]

The System Collapses.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 27, 2012 in News & Opinion |

What happens when something you rely on simply isn’t there? Imagine, just for a moment, that you’ve been going to a specific service provider everyday for the last year and have come to rely upon it. One day, out of the blue and with no warning whatsoever, it is no longer available. Your reaction? Wednesday […]

The Dying Church.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 26, 2012 in News & Opinion |

It should be no great secret that I have little time for the Church (regardless of which branch you care to name) or for organised religion. I see, as do many others I am sure, so many problems surrounding what one or two people in authority say and do – and this goes for politics […]

And In The News Today…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 25, 2012 in News & Opinion |

I can’t be the only one who is fed up of it all, but there are some people who still seem to live for such things. If they didn’t then a whole industry would die off – I wouldn’t miss it at all – and many, many people would be far happier and, I believe, […]

Let’s Be Honest

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 24, 2012 in News & Opinion |

Honesty is not a strong point with some people, although they probably don’t consider it being exactly dishonest, maybe just a little bit sparing with the truth, or telling white lies, protecting sources, forgetting to mention, but not lying. I remember seeing a photograph taken, I think, in New York a few years ago. It […]

Hardly A Day Gone By…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 23, 2012 in Personal |

It seems like only yesterday that we were on vacation, although in reality it is a complete week. Not a long vacation, just a short weekend around Ascension Day – Thursday through Sunday – but enough. And now, only Wednesday, and I am looking forward to the next long weekend, the next few days away […]



Fat Cat.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 22, 2012 in Personal |

Cats, hedgehogs, small and larger birds, deer and, today, a small fox cub. It’s one thing living in a country town and being able to travel through the countryside to get anywhere, it is quite another when all the living nature I tend to see has lived its life and, fresh for all to see, […]
