Trying To Cover All Bases

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 19, 2015 in Internet |

No matter where you are, no matter what you may believe your Rights to be, there are some things which cannot be said, which cannot be published for all to see. Prime examples are the major swear words, the Confederate flag, the word Vagina in the United States. In Germany it is the swastika, claims […]

Photography: Buying New Film

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 18, 2015 in Photography |

We took a trip into Nienburg today, more to see what is on offer when it comes to household appliances than anything else, but also because free time should be used to do things, and neither one of us wanted to just sit around at home all day. It was an interesting experience, not just […]

The State Of Education

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 17, 2015 in News & Opinion |

When I first read the breaking story about Ahmed Mohamed in Irving, I put my head in my hands, covering my eyes, and thanked providence that I didn’t and don’t have to face such blatant stupidity in my life. These are the people who are meant to teach us about life and prepare us for […]

GOP Debate: Not Worth The Effort

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 16, 2015 in News & Opinion |

One of the great advantages of not having a television is that, were I in the United States, I don’t feel forced to watch either the GOP presidential debate, nor catch all the highlights elsewhere. No matter how you look at it, the whole thing is just going to be a series of soundbites and […]

Yet Another Spam Failure

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 15, 2015 in Internet |

Now and then I get spam, when ‘now and then’ is every few minutes, which is automatically cast into the trash so that I don’t need to worry about it. Looking through the figures which WordPress so kindly supplies, I see that Akismet has dealt with over five hundred and forty thousand items of spam […]

One of the major stories filling almost all the serious news media at the moment is the plight of refugees.There have been many reactions to the flow of people, from the welcoming right through to the violent refusal to accept anyone.

Schlachte, Bremen: Quiet Before The Rush

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 12, 2015 in Personal |

A friend once told me that he saw more of the city in which he was born and raised, and where he lived for twenty or more years, in the two years after he had left it than at any other time in his life. Everything, he said, was right on his doorstep, and uninteresting. […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 11, 2015 in Publishing |

It may seem to some that the publishing front has been very quiet recently, but there is plenty going on in the background. I’m hoping that we will have the next title – tentatively called ‘Thoughts On Three Virtues: Love, Faith, Hope’ out at the end of this month, although there are still textual edits […]

Martyrs: The Next Cause Is Calling You

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 10, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It seems to be the easy way out, and a way of ensuring that there is no religious strife at Christmas time in the United States. The Postal Service has decided to issue normal postage stamps for Christmas, ones which include no religious symbols. For some this will undoubtedly be an attack on their religious […]

Windows 10 / Microsoft: Killing The Web

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 9, 2015 in Internet |

As I write this a second tab on my Firefox browser is running, trying to connect to Mozilla. It has been trying for over fifteen minutes – no timeout, no failure to connect, no server not found. It is simply running. The same goes with my attempts to get through the Get Firefox site, to […]
