Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

This is obviously for Me

As I reported earlier in this blog, I have never had any (what I call) money.

Another of my difficulties is that things that I have break. Now famous racing-car mechanic, the late Carroll Smith had a number of maxims: one of these was "Parts don't break: we break them"

As far as I am concerned this is not true, but then I am not as successful as Mr Smith was...

Anyway, the $3899 that Dell is asking for the superb piece of kit illustrated above would not have been an outrageous sum when I had a JOB, but since I have not had a JOB (i.e. what I call a JOB) for some time, $3899 must be classified as "outrageous."

I would love one of those laptops.
