There there must be something interesting to say. But I’m struggling to think of it. It was just another morning with another 18 parcels to send. I have finally managed to get control of the Pink Camera. I seem to have altered all the settings when I was struggling to format the card last week. The flash is now switched off and the focus allows me to take pictures of items that are less than 30 inches away. Considering that I spend most of my working week sitting at a desk taking pictures from less than 18 inches, this is a positive development.
We had corned beef hash for tea tonight, with plenty of vegetables and even shredded greens, It was both decorative and nutritious and I’m feeling full of vitamins. There was a woman on TV tonight who was taking over £80 worth of vitamin pills a month. Most of them were not necessary, It seems that the NHS recommends Vitamin D supplements for use in winter as we don’t have enough sunlight in the UK to synthesise it.
I am, I confess, no wiser about all this after reading the Government advice. That’s the trouble with this sort of thing – too many people with no scientific knowledge writing blogs on health. People like me, in fact.
Last night I read a blog about what someone had found when looking herself up on Google. Well, I couldn’t help it, I had to look. There are 17 pages of Simon Wilson – a blogger, several lawyers, a number of sportsmen and two sex offenders. I’m not even the most famous one in Nottingham. I’m on Page 11. I’ve had this name for 64 years and the best I can do is Page 11. Even one of the sex offenders gets better billing than I do. I may have to change my name . . .
Floral Tributes by The Lions in Nottingham. Photo from Julia’s phone. Header picture from the same source.
I am pleased that you have got the pink camera under control. Don’t let anyone else touch it! Considering the sort of people who make the news, I would think that being on page 11 should be a quiet source of pride. Not a wassock, not a crook, not a footballer, not a empty headed self publicist, just a fine poet and an interesting blogger.
Thank you. I will go away and glow with pride for a while now. 😉
Wait, did I say Julia or Jackie regarding the photos? I had just read Derrick’s response and I may have gotten your wives mixed up.
You said Julia. :-). It can get confusing, can’t it?
Oh, Good – lol
I did that once. 🙂
I like Julia’s photos of the lion statue and floral tributes. Those are very touching.
You could always change your name to Quercus, and then only get confused with oak trees, a noble lot. Quercus Wilson might even get to page 1! There are worse things. 🙂 I searched on “‘Quercus Wilson’ U.K.” and found the following in #1 spot:
Ha! Fame at last!
Best title ever..
Thank you. It was a shock to find who is ranked above me by society. 🙂
In the early days of our reconnection Jackie looked me up on the internet and discovered my photograph linked to a black American footballer on death row.
So she had a choice and opted for you? A comforting thought.
Great photos by Julia and great title by you!
🙂 Thank you. She has her moments.
