General Election

Posted by NanaMacsPlace on November 7, 2011 at 4:20 AM Comments comments (0)

It's that crazy time again.  Yes, it's time to go to the polls.  You can tell there's an election going on by all the rhetoric, posturing and politicians looking for a photo opportunity kissing hands and shaking babies.

For many the choice of who to vote for is simple but for others, the choice is anything but simple.  Here are a couple of tips which, I hope, will be useful.

Make a list of the things you believe are important then make an app...

A Dreamtime Tale

Posted by NanaMacsPlace on April 10, 2011 at 8:13 PM Comments comments (1)

Gather round, I have a story for you.  It could be called a bedtime story because it involves a dream I have ... a recurring one.  I was quite young when it first happened and it has continued ever since.  Not every night but often at 3 monthly intervals. More often than not, it happens at stressful times in my life.  It involves the cottage (pictured) and a woman standing in the doorway.

In the dream I am walking along the side of the road. The road seem...

Dear Dad

In February 2007 my mother died suddenly and later that year I wanted to find a special card for my Dad.


On Sunday 14 March 2010 my Dad joined my mother. His passing was also very sudden. Below is a copy of what I did for him back in 2007. This will be read out at his funeral on Friday.




Dear Dad,


I wanted to buy yo...

Bloody Technology

Posted by NanaMacsPlace on April 9, 2011 at 1:14 AM Comments comments (0)

I suppose I shouldn't complain but technology pisses me off sometimes. I know that's what's enabling us to use this damn thing but it still annoys me.


How many times have you seen one of those annoying 'Error' messages pop up? It never says why you can't do a particular thing, just that you can't! Or that other equally frustrating thing ... 'Page Cannot Be Displayed'. Why the hell not? Is it too much to ask for a damn reason?

Bloody Dogs.

Posted by NanaMacsPlace on April 9, 2011 at 1:10 AM Comments comments (0)

I went away for a few days to do some writing. I wish I was the type of person who could write amidst chaos, noise and confusion, but I'm not.


Although I live in a small rural settlement, it's an incredibly noisy one. Loud neighbours, heavy trucks etc all add to my dismay. But the worst noise comes from the barking of the bloody dogs that are close by. I swear to God, or whoever is listening, that there are dozens of the damn things occupying my space and brai...

Musing Number 2

This blog is to explain the 3 preceding blogs, which will have their own titles.

They were part of a collection from another, now defunct, site of mine.  If you've already seen them I apologise but I wanted to include them here.

Musing Number 1

Posted by NanaMacsPlace on April 8, 2011 at 1:53 AM Comments comments (3)

This is my first entry so it's more of an introduction really. You can find all about me by reading my 'About Me' or 'Interests' pages.

I shouldn't be sitting here doing this. I'm supposed to be writing a book but my juices have (almost) dried up. For those of you who live elsewhere, like Mars, my hometown suffered a devastating earthquake on February 22 2011.

Damage to my property was small, superficial and not w...
