Tomorrow, as has been loudly proclaimed in all the local newspapers, one of the regional banks here is opening a new branch, and we are all invited along to witness it. There will be balloons and smiling faces and plenty of smartly dressed financial advisers on hand to make sure you believe your money is […]

Terrorism: Where Do Your Sympathies Lie?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 25, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s not yet ten days since I posted a few thoughts on religion and the attacks in Paris. Since then plenty seems to have happened and, at the same time, nothing at all. In the United States there has been the usual number of killings, nothing special:  a few children, a few blacks, a few […]

Social Media: The Art Of Sharing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 22, 2015 in Internet |

Competition between the various social networks is tough. Each wishes to gain as many users as possible, to boost their ratings, to gain more income through advertising and plant themselves firmly in the Biggest Of All Time Hall Of Fame. The fact that this does not necessarily mean users – seen as either customers, consumers […]

Fast Food: Where’s The Hygiene Risk?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 21, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Every single day, when I go to buy my fresh bread rolls for breakfast, I see that the person serving behind the counter is wearing some form of glove. The idea is that any germs they might have on their hands is not passed on , through the food they are selling, to the customer. […]

Windows 10: Clean Your Disks!

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

The latest Windows 10 update is there, as promised, and has taken up a good deal of my time as, I do not doubt, it has taken up plenty of time for those others who are doomed to use this remarkable piece of software. And, no, for anyone wishing to take my words out of […]

A Lack Of Understanding

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

Undoubtedly many tens of thousands of words will be written about the terrorist attacks in Paris. Anger and fear will be expressed, or has already been. Blame will be placed, whether it is due or not. People will be attacked because of their appearance, their religion, their home country. I can easily imagine that the […]

Another Reading, Another Crime!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 15, 2015 in Personal |

Never one to give up, and having plenty of time on my hands in the evenings, we decided to try another reading. This time we chose a very sparsely described reading at a restaurant. By sparsely described I mean that the event had a time, a two or three word description, and a place. Well, […]

The Reading List Reading

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 14, 2015 in Personal |

There’s one thing we’ve all experienced, as we sit and read our books in peace and quiet: that person who has to come and talk to us. Not just talk, but also give their own recommendations, the ‘oh, but you must read…’. These are always well-intentioned interruptions, but unwelcome all the same, and hardly likely, […]

The True Language Of America

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 12, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The United States of America. Such a wonderful idea, such a complicated and yet simple ideal but, like Communism, it only works on paper. The United States would be a wonderful place, I am told, if it weren’t for the people. Cut the people out – those who live there, not those who are only […]

Surrounded By The Work You Love

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

I sometimes wonder what it will be like, the future. Will we still be doing much the same things as today, or will there really be hoverboards and shoes which tie their own laces? It’s not so long ago, roughly the time when I was born to put a date on it, when much of […]
