Words Worth

Hello dear readers!

Monday is the new Sunday! Woohoo!

Sadly this is not a move to a four day working week, but merely a one week postponement of blog writing day. This unplanned time shift is owed to a perfect storm of clocks going forward, Mother’s Day, Birthdays and a sudden outbreak of church.

It is upon this last item I want to dwell.

Aunty Social

Hello dear readers!

Today’s offering comes to you courtesy of Aunty Beeb and dear old social media.

I realise as I type that sentence that most of you, my dear readers, will have stumbled upon these poor scribblings using just such a channel, especially given my proclivity for, um, oversharing, perhaps just a tad.

But don’t blame Twitter or Facebook for ending up here, it’s really not their fault and hopefully you’ll appreciate what at least one of these giants of online life have added to what follows.

The Case For Technology

Hello, dear readers!

Well, we’re back in the old routine.

Yes, after a week which included a Sunday shift at work, I find myself once more able to indulge myself with a fried egg sandwich, a cup of really quite excellent coffee and my trusty laptop. Ready, willing and very nearly able, to pen my weekly missive to you, my dear readers.

So, you probably weren't about to ask, what has the week held?

Well in many ways it has been a momentous week. Not only has it seen the 20th anniversary of the very first episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, (Find it. Watch it. Love it.) but it has seen the birthdays of such luminaries as Yuri Gagarin, Amerigo Vespucci, and Michelangelo (the renaissance polymath, not the ninja turtle). It also saw a court case that has the potential to change legal history.

The Deepest Cuts

Hello, dear readers!

This week’s offering comes to you courtesy of a bit of a time-warp.

No I’m not talking about the dance. There will be no jump to the left nor even the slightest suggestion of steps to the right. Both of those moves tend to be just a little bit tricky for this blogger in any case. No, I’m referring to the fact that I’m actually writing to you from the depths of Saturday afternoon rather than my customary write/edit/post/pass out Sunday lunchtime routine.

It means this week’s subject matter is just that little bit fresher to the memory. In fact I owe a hefty chunk of this post to a TV show that I watched just last night
