10 Dec 2017 Homily: Living in New Zealand (plus Tweets)

I began this tweets post yesterday, but (obviously) didn’t finish it. Now, I’ve just got back from lunch at the lovely Lauren’s Lavender Farm (the pic is one I took in January) and I don’t feel much like writing. However, I don’t want to waste yesterday’s efforts. It’s my birthday, and even more things than usual are crap right now, so I hope you’ll forgive... read more

Trump and the Jerusalem Decision (plus Tweets)

Tweets are about the least important thing on my mind at the moment. On Wednesday morning I had a bad fall. Walking is never that easy for me, but now every step is agony. Still, that’s actually not the worst of my problems. 3½ hours later my landlord told me she was selling the house. So in around six weeks (maybe a bit longer if I’m “lucky”) I’ll be homeless.

I would go so far as to say this could be the beginning of the end of the... read more

Trump’s Tweets – News or Bad Behaviour?

I’m on a different computer today, with a keyboard that’s playing havoc with my already bad typing! I’ve been struck by the nightmare of the latest Windows 10 update, which so far has taken almost 21 hours on my laptop and is still going strong. Is it just me, or is hate for Windows 10 a normal condition? So there may not be too many tweets today as I’ll probably get sick of... read more
