I recently received this document from America. So depressing!
I am ever so thankful Mary & I live in Oz.

A circuit breaker

We all need circuit breakers


That 'something' that enables us to escape.


At this time of social isolation, personal and interpersonal stress, employment unpredictability

and emotional discomfort we particularly need distractions.

My family, my computer, my writing, my online interactions ~
These are my circuit breakers; all helping to maintain a sense of
in-touchedness with reality...


for my latest 'distraction'    (white balloon)

You might find the route that works.
But can you explain why?

The countdown begins

3 days...

2 days...

They say that scientists have found that the longer people are married the more they start to look the same…

Someone, don't know who, posted this as proof.


1 day...

Excuse us! It's Archie's pre-walk P&P Time (pee-pee / poo-poo)

By allowing Archie 5-minutes to do his jobs, I hopefully (but not always) avoid having to use the pooper-bag on our walk).

Meanwhile, it's my daily walkaround with iPhone in hand to see what's new inside the fence.

tinkering around the edges...

I never know when, I turn on my PC, where I will go.
The complexity, depth and breadth of content and processes brought to my fingertips by the WWW and cloud computing is, I say, 'awesome'. Others might say, "frightening".
