Windy day

Today the sun is shining and there is a rather stiff breeze blowing, great for when your hanging washing out, but not so great if you are a 4 year old holding a sticky lolly pop and your hair keeps getting blown on it.

A four year old always has a different perception of the weather…its windy, then for us females its good washing weather..a four year old…. kite flying weather!

When there are big white fluffy clouds in the sky you can make and find fantastic shapes in them…of course when its windy they do not last very long!

Computers! naa they will never catch on?

bellow are a few quotes from people who think that the computer will not be really used :o)

Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons."
--Popular Mechanics, forecasting the relentless march of science, 1949

"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers."
--Thomas Watson, Chairman of IBM, 1943

"640K ought to be enough for anybody." -- Bill Gates, 1981

"I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked with the best people, and I can assure you that data processing is a fad that won't last out the year."
--The editor in charge of business books for Prentice Hall, 1957

Strange eh? how time changes things?  Most of us have a terrabyte hard drive or at least an external one... what would happen if we had NO electricity?

John Keats

I’m an avid fan of John Keats, read his poetry when I was young and to this day still love the Ode to Autumn. It was sad how he died such a young man, I visited the Keats and Shelly House at the Spanish steps in Italy this year and was moved by the simple rooms and wonderful pictures of him so carefully preserved at The Keats-Shelley House it contained a lock of Keats’s hair, his death mask, some original letters, and various other mementos and pictures .
.Just wonderful to sit and read his books in the same room where he sat.
