Little things...

I've been having fun playing around with the computer over the last couple of days. I have had Google as my homepage for ever, but now you can personalise your Google homepage and add all sorts of gadgets.

So far I have a lovely cityscape template which changes colour in time with the daylight here (you tell it where you live when setting up). I have a calendar, a sticky note space for my 'to do' list, and Google notes, which I use to record odds and ends which catch my eye on the internet. I have local weather forecasts and a couple of news feeds. A Wikipedia search button and several inspirational 'quote of the day' widgets also find a home.

The quotes come from...wait for it...Oprah and Dr Phil. Today's quote from Dr Phil is one I can really relate to:

Sometimes you just got to give yourself what you wish someone else would give you.

Enough said.

And no, I am not going to comment on today's political changes in the UK except to say that Cherie's comment to the media as they left Downing Street was classy. Not.

I don't necessarily agree with lots of things Cherie Blair has said or done but if I'd had as much crap from the media as she has over the last 10 years I'd have said a lot worse.

Welcome, Clara.
It wasn't the sentiment I disagreed
with, but the timing. Tony was clearly not intending to engage with the media at that time, beyond the photo call, and after all it was his day and no doubt a very difficult one for him. If she had said it later, in a newspaper article or on TV, I'd probably have cheered her on, because I do agree she has had to put up with a lot of crap, only some of which she brought on herself!

I suppose she well remembers the sleepy pictures the press took 10 yrs ago..
She answered her doorbell to receive a delivery of tousled, nightie on...

Yes, she learnt the hard way, didn't she?!
