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!

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 (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 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), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. 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!
