Through excessive image taking we have lost a connection – not only to our memories but also our daily lives.

~ I’ve been saying this for years and bemoaning the fact that some people seem unable to experience anything with their naked eyes anymore. Phones held high to capture everything at gatherings or concerts, ordinary food glorified, and selfies ad nauseam.
I’m almost certain it affects how memories are formed.

Elevating the everyday;  Being There.

Cloggy:—-  Very, very true.

I did it!

I finally found the right time and headspace to embark upon replacing my battery and hard drive. Armed with some clear online instructions that I viewed on my iPad, and a comprehensive toolkit, the job was done with precision and very little drama. I want to thank the egg carton for holding all those teensy screws I removed, and I want to bless whoever invented magnetic screwdriver fittings so that I could put all those teensy screws back where they belonged.

The new (and bigger) hard drive is now loaded with all my cherished stuff and will be soon finding a new home with my daughter who is desperate for a MacBook and is delighted to be getting a ‘Mum-refurbished’ Pro for her 30th birthday.

I shall very soon be treating myself to the latest MacBookPro with retina 

CLOGGY:- Well Done Jen. I am always amazed myself when my computer works after I have done some mod to it.

~A big hooray for Mother Cusser who speaks common sense like it’s going out of style. Which it is, sadly. 
She rips into the over-protected kids and the helicopter parents - and offers a comprehensive list of ways to avoid raising a generation of entitled little shits with no problem-solving skills or resilience.

Cloggo:- Great truths in what Mother Cusser says. Kids dare not leave home now. In the school holidays my mother never saw me from breakfast to teatime, I was like Tarzan living up trees in Gawber Woods.
