Day 482: The Morning Quickie
Yesterday's blog got me started on local photos. I've blogged about Lymm before, together with pictures and whatnot, but it's been a while since I last took you on a tour.
This one'll be brief, as there's much to do - wasn't it Pepys who us... Read more
Day 481: The Morning Quickie
I came across a photograph that brought to mind one I'd taken. We live a few steps, almost literally, from the canal that runs through our village.

...and so it is. Time's a-wastin', too much to do. So no rant today, just a pretty picture.
TGIF, yeh? Have a good'un, Sparklers - carpe diem!

Day 479: The Morning Quickie
I used to live for the weekends - it doesn't seem all that long ago, but I guess it was.
When I was in my teens, weekends meant plenty of time to socialize with friends while not having the nuisance of classes or studying in the way.

Day 478: The Morning Quickie
I had no idea I was so popular. Yesterday was the first time in ages I wasn't near a computer for the better part of the day - interpret "better" as you will.
So when I open my email this morning, I have scads of messages, and you wouldn't ... Read more

"Just around the corner,
There's a rainbow in the sky.
So let's have another cup o'coffee,
And let's have another piece o'pie."

Day 475: The Morning Quickie
I was looking through my extensive (read: bloated) picture files for some things to post on my page and I came across the poster for a women's suffrage procession, for March 3, 1913 - a century ago today.
Except for election days I tend to ... Read more

Day 473: The Morning Quickie
Houseguests plus a (brief, BP check) doctor's appointment, so chances are I won't be around today to do a "B" blog. (Is that a subconscious statement on the quality? Sort of like second-billing in a double-feature?)
Today is Saint David's D... Read more
Day 472B: The best laid plans o'mice...
...and Sparklers who are supposed to be cleaning house. A-heh.
I dropped in on BOPPY_'s blog (from yesterday, Why Do I Blog @ Spark People?) and ended up writing a blog. You know what Kurt said - so it goes, so it goes...

Day 471: The Morning Quickie
A quote I came across yesterday: "Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get." It's attributed to Dale Carnegie, the original self-improvement guru.
Although there are a lot of jokes about his best-known book, "How ... Read more
Day 470B: This one's for TEENY_BIKINI...
One of the un-features I lament on SP is the inability to post pictures to other members.
Oh, I suppose such a system could lend itself to abuse -well, when it comes to the internet, what couldn't? - and maybe it would take up bandwidth or ... Read more

Day 470: The Morning Quickie
Last night was another dinner party by our Japanese-chef friend. We were back to the okonomiyaki - a cross between a sort-of pizza and a sort-of omelet with toppings - with the emphasis this time on the type from a different region. If you compa... Read more
