Thoughts of a middle aged man…..9 April 2013

Love her or hate her you had to respect her, I’m talking about former British Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher. I was disgusted to see the revelry on the streets in Great Britain as news of her passing spread, she left her mark on the world and will never be forgotten. The same cannot be said for Julia Gillard, if only we could forget her.

I was thinking today just how annoying it is that whenever you change internet provider you are forced to change your email address. Is there a solution, I think so. A single national format for all email addresses, your email address would be a combination of your name and your date of both, and instead of @bigpond or @iinet or @chariot, all email addresses would be @australia. The internet providers should not mind, they would continue to get their dollar.

What about people who change their name I hear you ask, well you cannot please everyone all of the time, they would still need to change their email address to reflect their new surname. What about businesses I hear you ask, most of them should already have that  licked, @theirbusinessname. For any business that is not quite up with 21st Century technology, I say get your act together, all businesses should now be using email as a tool of their business, I do not trust any business with a generic account such as @hotmail or at yahoo.

This brings me to junk mail, I hate junk mail, the man who delivers ours has worked his way around the “No Junk Mail” letterbox stickers, he rolls the junk mail up and throws a bundle on your garden, just like the man who delivers your newspaper.

In my opinion, and in light of the fact that we are depleting our timber supplies and destroying our rainforests, and most of take scant notice of our junk mail anyway, I would like to put a ban on it. For those who do care how do they get their junk mail fix, via email naturally, you do not need it in hard copy form. Electronic junk mail would be better for the planet and cheaper for the businesses involved.

That’s my opinion. Goodnight and thank you for reading.

Thoughts of a middle aged man…..23 February 2013

Today we went to our grandson Cody’s 10th birthday party, it was actually his birthday last weekend but his mother held his party today. When we first arrived Cody proudly showed us his room, he has a bunk bed, computer, television with DVD, quite the set up for a little boy, but then he is his mother’s only child.

His birthday cake was in the form of an Angry Bird from the on-line game, absolutely superb, the cake artist is one very talented lady. Unfortunately we did not get to stay for the cake as Brian’s back was killing him so we left early, but not before seeing two of my sons and six of the grandchildren. Cody was a bit upset we were leaving so early but I am sure he cheered up quickly with all his cousins to play with.

On the way Brian and I drove past what used to be my family home when I was married, the home my children were raised in. I have to say the house is looking pretty good, by the time my ex-wife sold it the house was looking very tired, but the new owners have spruced it up and it looks good. Bitter sweet memories of a former life.

Tonight we watched a David Attenborough documentary about Africa. This gentleman presents beautiful television with a hint of humour and he manages to catch some very poignant moments in the animal kingdom. One heart wrenching segment tonight showed the devotion between a mother elephant and her dying calf, very sad.

It has been another stinker in Adelaide today and it will be hot again tomorrow, so the only place for us will be inside under the air-conditioner. I should go and see Mum at the nursing home so we will see how I feel in the morning.

I see the NAB Cup is now on in the AFL, I think the AFL should stop this preseason competition, it is just too hot and it must take a lot out of the players.

Time for me to go to the land of nod. Goodnight and thank you for reading.
