Take time to think (posted on both sites)

While leaping from blog to blog this morning on my coffee break, I happened upon a fascinating article about creativity, fatigue and setting a frenetic working pace that really got me thinking. While it’s nothing new to most people who work creatively that you need head-space to be able to create, it seems that the…

Yet another way to lose track of time

While wandering I found 2 Many Bugs. Good thing I set the timer for only five minutes or the whole morning might have whizzed by! Man, that thing is addictive!

Flickr Contact Organiser

One of my very few pet peeves about the Flickr system is that there is no way of organising contacts other than by degree of photo permissions. The system allows me to segregate all those who have been labelled “friends” or “family” (a level or two above “contact” and therefore having increasing permission to see…

Go, China!

It’s about time somebody did. We could learn so much from Asian cultures…….

My talented relations

There are gifted people everywhere in my family. My brother-in-law, Adam, is one of the managers of Abbyshot Clothiers, a local Newfoundland company that makes trenchcoats and other clothing to replicate those seen in movies. My sister (his wife) is one of their seamstresses. Their custom-fit clothing is amazing stuff. Most of their business is…

Weighty work

After reading this, I'm rather glad I work in textiles.

I usually steer clear of regional politics and stuff like this for two reasons; firstly, I feel strangely detached from the antics of politicians and frankly find them tediously dull, inane and plain dunderheaded and secondly, my blood pressure is very important to me and I like to keep it low. When you touch my…

Great minds…. (or fools seldom…)

Don't you just love it when you come across someonewho thinks like you do, approaches things in a similar fashion and has already written a road map to places you've only thought of visiting? I seem to be hanging around Lorelle on WordPress a lot in recent weeks and have found much of what she…

7000 songs?

I was perusing John Gushue's blog the other day when I followed a link to SkylarkD's post,  in which she writes about a fellow who wrote a book about the fifty most depressing songs ever written. The songs themselves weren't as interesting as the author's (Tom Reynolds) comments on them. (I still like "Total Eclipse…

Eagle Advisory Notice

They're hatching….. At least, it looks that way to me from the quick glimpse I had. Someone is pecking his/her way out of one of the eggs.

Monday morning web wandering

It's Monday, I have a tonne and a half of work to do and less time in which to do it than I ought (working with a child around is more like juggling than anything else), so here are a few quick and interesting links. First, the D*I*Y Planner by Doug Johnston of A Million…
