a tale to be told.

I’m continually surprised by people, and literally from one extreme to another.   Sundays always present themselves as great days to get out and do “outdoorsy” stuff. As such we decided a hike up Lions head would make for a god use of a Sunday morning.    As a gift, Jamie had been given a … Continue reading

DA Youth poster ruffles some feathers.

Many feathers seemed a bit ruffled in the twittersphere a few days ago with the launch of the DASO 2012 campaign featuring a young white male and a black female in a rather intimate position.

afternoon social buzz.

With an hour left of the traditional work day, thought I’d share some awesome innovations in social media I’ve been reading about.

Just think – in a few years everything will be controlled at a touch of a button, or … Continue reading

encore

Too many good things took place this weekend. So much so that I just wish it could have gone on a wee bit longer. To kick off the weekend, two of my besties came round for dinner on Friday night.  I made a roast chicken and veggies, yes something I’m famous for, and we had … Continue reading
