And it's all FREE; well, almost.
Aren't these bloody machines bloody wonderful.
I don't use my laptop for buying stuff; I leave that to Lady Magnon. In fact everything I do use it for is completely free.
Blogging is free; amazing.
Email is free; even more amazing.
Skype is free; occasionally that's pretty amazing too.
Google is free, Spotify is free, YouTube is free, Picasa 3 is free, Facebook is free, my daily weather forecast is free, the online newspaper I read is free, Wiki is free, and goodness knows how many other things are free too.
OK, I have to pay a paltry €29 a month to receive all these freebies; but what the hell.
And amazingly most of these companies manage to make millions, if not billions.
As Frank Capra said; 'it's a wonderful life'.....It sure is!
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 44 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
