A sad moment, and close to my heart. I know we still have ‘mines’, but it appears we are so ‘anti’ coal now despite millions of tons of the stuff being in the ground. I’m all for renewables, and a reduction in pollution, but they are not the whole answer, and I still think that CO2, and with it all the complex taxation/rules, is not the bad boy.
I may in a minority though.
The headline photo really caught my attention. The different emotions visible, for the same moment in the performance.

How wide of the mark were they?
Fantastic stuff along the way. Is the iPad really so ‘new’?
When has a ‘computer’ company taken so long to get to market with a product, and produced such fantastic looking products along the way?
I was surprised to see so much good stuff in this list, things that were totally ground breaking, and so ahead of there time. Apple may produce some desirable products now, but some of these concepts would have been killers, some may be killers even today given the advancements along the way with what can be done with the hardware.
Got to say I ‘really‘ want an iPad now!
I had this link sent to me today after I had a conversation with an old cycling friend.
In 1990 my paternal grandmother completed a short history of her life, and I’ve always loved to read this document. I suppose it gives me a sense of purpose or history, and it may well explain a lot of who I am, and even why I blog.
I recently uncovered a copy of this document, typed up by my cousin Karen around the time of my grandmothers death, and I’ve finally got around to scanning it onto the computer and doing a little tidying up.
So here it is, Me and Mine, written by my grandmother, a very religious lady, as are the rest of my family, except the black sheep here, and someone who had great faith in her beliefs.
Far too many years late this is my little homage to her.
