Living In Interesting Times

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 26, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I was convinced by others that I ought to watch, much against my will, a television program recently. And I am glad, even though I have no intention of following through and purchasing such a device, that I succumbed to the temptation. Occasionally, as we all know, there are things of interest within things which […]



Stuff Your Global Warming

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 24, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s the start of spring over here, and we have had several hours of sunshine to prove it. Everywhere the flowers are beginning to bloom, the trees are taking on the first of many shades of green and there is a fresh, revitalizing smell in the air. Except when the local farmers spread their muck, […]

Watching Paint Peel

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 19, 2016 in Personal |

I was amused, recently, to read a set of comments about those who write blog posts, add status updates to their Facebook profile, photos to their Instagram profile or Tweet to Twitter apologizing for not having been present for a while. Generally they seem to ask if anyone had missed them which, as we all […]

Did Google Catch You Out?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 2, 2016 in Internet |

In case you didn’t notice it, yesterday was April 1, the notorious day of Fools and Fun. Well, unless you are Anne Coulter, who believes that the pranks idea should be sent back to France, where it possibly originated, along with the guillotine and metric system, both of which are continually used in the United […]

Cellphone Users: You’re Missing The World

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 11, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Have you seen those people who believe that they are so important they must be reachable at all times of the day and night? You know the ones: they have a gadget permanently stuck in their ear; they sit in art galleries looking into the laps; they hold up traffic on the freeway; they walk […]

Forget Your Parking Permit, This Is Germany!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 17, 2016 in News & Opinion |

This is a story, tracing its roots back to 2013, which is simply too good to miss. The small town of Datteln in North Rhine Westphalia, Germany, is turning back the clock on parking permits, and in a way which may surprise those of us more used to modern technology and the apps which do […]

The True Object Of Our Fascination

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 16, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s something you simply cannot miss, when walking down a shopping street or inside a Mall, the number of people who do more than just glance at their reflection in a mirror or shop window. You can see the eyes checking everything that they see, as quickly as possible, trying to make it seem just […]

Updates: The Never Ending Story

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 12, 2016 in Internet |

It is indeed a wonderful feeling to be back with a software package which works for me, and which allows me to access the Internet, my mails and all that involves. It is almost as if a blindfold has been removed from my eyes, and my hands released from their bonds. Now all I need […]

Windows: Let’s Just Reinstall That, Shall We?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 5, 2016 in Internet |

What do you do when you’ve tried everything else and nothing seems to work? If you’ve any sense, or if you’re as stubborn as I can be, you start from scratch and try to get it right a second time, or a third, or… especially when you have no real choice. Today I managed to […]

Akismet: That File Is Just Too Big

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 3, 2016 in Internet |

Did I mention that I have been having problems connecting to the Internet and accessing my site since installing Windows 10? Well, yes, I did and more than once. As an update: I can’t say things have improved, although I have managed to access today – as you can see! – and write something. At […]
