Just had a bit of a test/trial …


I’ve heard a bit about Gutenberg, the new WordPress editor so I thought I would give it a go. “Be bold.” I said to myself, “Don’t get in a rut” and a few other motivational phrases that I don’t want to go into.My first impression was that it had a quite confusing interface, and I … Continue reading Just had a bit of a test/trial …

Decisions, decisions …


When I first had the idea of creating a blog, I sought some online advice as to how I could go about getting my thoughts online. It became apparent, quite quickly that the free version of WordPress was the way to go. I toyed with Blogger, but it seemed to lack any kind of quality … Continue reading Decisions, decisions …

This basically a test …


Whilst I was editing my last contribution, I had a go using the new WordPress editor. When I started this blog, I used Microsofts blogging tool known as Windows Live Writer (WLW). After a while, Microsoft stopped supporting WLW and I was 'forced' to use Word as my blog editor. It was okay and I … Continue reading This basically a test …

There are muttering amongst, the rumour merchants that WLW is … Continue reading Blogging from Word 2013

Just a brief note


    Just thought I would mention this. The last post was created in word 2013 and then edited in WordPress. For the past, I don't know how many years, I have written my blog posts in Microsoft Live Writer. This free piece of software came with Windows Live Essentials, and for the most part has been … Continue reading Just a brief note

   Well, the afternoon didn’t get any better. The file that I was waiting for arrived too late to fully process, so that’s the first job in the morning. Then it’s back to the routine stuff. I need more challenges in this job. I think it is time to start putting feelers out. There are … Continue reading …. and on and on.

Not good….


   Mrs H is not in a good way. She has got an infection where her tooth was extracted last week, and the pain killers are not doing a thing to help. She’s been given more antibiotics, stronger ones, but they will not really help with the pain. By my reckoning, it will be late … Continue reading Not good….

Living dangerously


   Eldest finally got in touch at around 10 past 1. I’d tried texting and ringing him since about 11:30, with no answer. He sent a text to say he was catching the 05:00 bus, so I got him to call. Explained that the bus was 16:50, and only every hour so he had better … Continue reading Living dangerously
