I want to point out to the world that people over 50 have a lot to offer. I want to point this out to all age groups but especially to people who are past 50 or thereabouts. I get tired of hearing people talk about retirement. Retirement belongs to the previous generations – our parents and their parents (if they lived long enough). I am not suggesting that we keep working at a job we […]

internet / The workplace / You must be kidding?

I want to upgrade my mobile phone. Now that doesn’t sound complicated, does it? I have a pre-paid phone but I am looking at changing over to a contract. I went to the Telstra Store and was approached soon after arriving. He only wanted my name though and told me I was second in the queue. I decided to browse my options and selected three phones that I wanted more information about. I browsed for […]

Recently while talking to some people I had just met, I realised how often my lifestyle decisions are based on doing things online. I met my husband online and I am a member of Weight Watchers online. I order my groceries online and buy my books the same way. I have personal Facebook page and business Facebook page plus I have this blog and another business blog. I do online research and read the news […]

Blog 2012 / internet

I order my groceries online and they are delivered to my door. The truck arrived around midday today and the driver carried two boxes to my kitchen. The first one was full of potatoes! M mm… what is going on here? The next box also had potatoes. I laughed as I realised what happened. I thought I ordered 10 baby potatoes. I didn’t look closely enough and mistakenly I ordered 10 x 2kg bags of […]

Problem in chair – not in computer (picnic)?

Blog 2012 / internet / Journal Blog / technology / Uncategorized / You must be kidding?

These last few weeks I’ve found the WordPress blogs a bit challenging. Today I set some time aside to explore whether it was me (picnic ūüôā ) or whether I wasn’t getting updates or if there is some other problem. It¬†feels like the¬†rate of change this year has been exponential. Until recently I felt like I was on top of it all. So I went to the WordPress¬†Forums to see what I could find out. […]

I would like to share the occasional insight with you as I go on this learning journey. It is good to find that the course has some focus about writing for web-based purposes. I really enjoy dabbling with the technology and I am quite excited about the seemingly endless possibilities for online communication. cheers for now Lorraine The text-book is Technical Communication Рa reader centred approach, 7th Edition, Anderson.

I¬†confess to¬†being negligent – a few weeks back Claire¬†nominated me for the Liebster¬†Blog. I was delighted¬†to receive the award but got lazy when it came to passing it on. “Liebster”, so I am told, is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome! Wow – I promise I didn’t make that up. The rules are: Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the […]

I reflected on this topic and my head was spinning! Probably because the ideas that I came up with were nothing new. I have spent a few decades trying to improve myself. This involves being brave enough to keep learning practical and technical things. I have a thirst for new knowledge and leap at the opportunity to gain it. Other ideas included: self-acceptance – isn’t it ironic that including this in my list means I […]

¬†I have a girlfriend that doesn’t have email. This means that the only time we catch up is by phone once every few months. We don’t live in the same town. My friend is on a disabiliity pension and is reluctant to spend her pension on paying for an internet server, a computer and new software. I would like to buy her an up to date computer, with all the latest software¬†and pay all her […]
