Diet rule #1: If no-one sees you eating it, it doesn’t contain any calories.

All the more reason to sneak that mince pie quietly in the kitchen!



Daisy, Daisy

Daisy 1

I was very happy to notice a few tiny daisies pop up underneath my washing line recently.

Daisy 2 and LM

Little Monkey models them for me, as they are so small.

Then she said, “Call that a daisy?”

Daisy 3

Now that’s a daisy!

We found these Shasta daisies on a property in my neighbourhood.

Daisy 4

They are a little past their sell by date to be sure, but we don’t always walk that way and I don’t normally carry my camera.

But I think you can still see their majesty.

Life is too short to remove USB safely.

– Unknown


I have one particular external HD that insists it is still in use, when I know I have closed everything. Now I don’t even ask my computer if it is safe to remove it, because I know it is and it will tell me it is not.

There seem to be different names in use for these little devices. I call them Flash Sticks, because you know, the small ones are sticks and they flash!

My sister in the UK calls them Memory sticks. I believe they are also referred to as USB or U, pen, thumb(nail), drives or sticks.

Removing these little guys isn’t too much of a problem. My main frustration is when you have stayed up a little too late watching ‘stuff’ online and now you really need to go to sleep. You try to shut down your laptop, only to be met with the Windows statement, Update and Shut Down or Update and Restart. No other options! Grrrr!
