[mini-blogfocus] to be added to

I'll add to these as the round of the blogs continues. Check these out:

Facebook hijacking

If a Facebook group loses all of its administrators, then any member of the group can promote themselves and take over the role. Should the new administrator radically change the published purpose of the group – i.e. Hijack it - then there is not much group members can do about it. Other than leave, of course.

Police cars

Is this the face of the new plod-car? Actually, difficult to select form these articles.


When the changes take place bulbs will appear with the symbol Lm for Lumens instead of W for Watt. A 60W bulb, for example, will be given the label 800 Lm. (eh? yer wot??)


Now where was I, oh yes.
Men, they do make life interesting. Snips, snails and puppy dog tails...

Speaking of puppy dog tails....

Sigh, I doubt if His Girl Friday will ever speak to me again after the earlier post.

Fencing off the internet

Michael Lynton, the CEO of Sony, attracted a certain amount of notoriety for saying that

"I'm a guy who sees nothing good having come from the Internet. Period."

Of course I'll talk to you, James. :)

As for feminism, I think it's ruined it for us. (but that thought can be for another day)
(er, maybe not, it was perhaps a good concept for better treatment, but taken to the extreme, becomes a rather selfish pursuit and is probably why we have the disintegration of the family, and such trouble with the youth of today...) phew...enough for now...

Although, as a disclaimer, I'm all for equal work, equal pay; and, I would never want to be seen as property or second class, or be relegated to the kitchen for a drink.

btw, I quite enjoy (and say thank you) when a man opens a door for me whether it's a restaurant door or the door to my horse trailer; or helps me with my rucksack at 14,000 feet, or helps me with my caribiner break because I don't want to body rappel. ;D

Lucky man, your man.

His Girl Friday said...

Well, she says, I do remind him now and again of that... ;D
