Echo responsivity

At the outset, this is not an attempt to diagnose any person or allude to diagnosis of any person. Let me repeat that two more times. At the outset, this is not an attempt to diagnose any person or allude to diagnosis of any person. At the outset, this is not anRead More

Plagued

Now, did I say I was suffering with ‘the Plague’? I did NOT! It’s a Saturday morning when these thoughts enter my mind; triggered by experiences in the last week but going back over many years. It doesn’t matter where in the world I am now, for Pete’s sake –Read More

Human weaknesses

‘Everybody’ knows about the strengths in human nature! By ‘everybody’ I mean a majority of people. In any event ‘everybody’ uses the term ‘everybody’ – or ‘not everybody’ conveniently – so I’m using the term. And – I don’t give a monkeys whether I know ‘everybody’ – and I don’t!Read More

Email – potential to destroy the human race

Today I have ultra-conclusive evidence that email and e-correspondence is a risk to the survival of the human race! Some see email as different to text on websites and social media platforms. It isn’t! Why? Because both are text-based information sent by electronic means, and put in places for peopleRead More

FOMO, ROMO & JOMO

I’ve been thinking about FOMO for quite some time, in the background of course. Now it’s coming into the foreground. Then there is JOMO, which most people think they know about but know nothing. ROMO people will know about but haven’t attached the mnemonic. People – in general of courseRead More

Words?

Over the last year I’ve been observing that important thing called words. Yes – I mean spoken written and any other form of words. There is a problem. In this new ‘information era‘ people have been hanging on to words for dear life. Words have a way of being misunderstood,Read More

Abysmal service dealt with on TripAdvisor

In short don’t mess with The Captain’s time and money! And don’t expect him to just roll over, sulk and not return. See TripAdvisor report or not – it’s a very long one and contains extreme detail. Your cure for insomnia perhaps.

Hounded by idiots – again!

Just watch this conversation below which happened just a few minutes ago. I think I have a problem. I’m being hounded by idiots!! Caller: Hello how are you? [In a polite tone] Me: Who’s calling please. Caller: Xxxx from [whatever ] Me: Someone from your organisation called yesterday – IRead More

Anti-social media

The more I look at and think about so-called ‘social media’ the more I come to some very different perspectives (in general – meaning exceptions excepted as you might expect). 1. Social media is more about prying on what other people are doing. 2. People comparing themselves with other people.Read More

What’s complicated?

It’s just hit me again – another thing that’s been at the back of my mind. It’s these words ‘it’s complicated’. And it’s hit me because I had just reviewed an item, I had purchased on Amazon about which somebody else said ‘Very good but complicated to set up.’ Look,Read More
