Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

As an alliteration addict, I find it hard not to be impressed with “Ages ago, Alex, Allen and Alva arrived at Antibes, and Alva allowing all, allowing anyone, against Alex’s admonition, against Allen’s angry assertion: another African amusement . . . anyhow, as all argued, an awesome African army assembled and arduously advanced against an African anthill, assiduously annihilating ant after ant, and afterward, Alex astonishingly accuses Albert as also accepting Africa’s antipodal ant annexation.”

Found this at archie's archive, over on wordpress.

I am trying to think of an incantation against children using parent's computer.

Hi David
I'm being 'allowed' online for a little while, before my son needs to study again. I'll certainly check out your link sometime! Sounds fun!

If you come up with one, Brian, let me know! I might hang a whole lot of weird items round the computer to confuse the children... you know, a pentagon, a candle, a stuffed toy without an arm or let, a placard saying "Keep off - this computer's cursed!' ... just normal stuff...

Do you know what this is like, Mystic? :-S

lol!
They not only demand your attention full time when younger,
but become the boss and make more demands as they grow.

So you have to ask your son for permission to use the puter -

when you go out does he insist he wants you home by 1o.oo - lol!

No, Q9, but if he has school work to do, then I have to allow him that! Unfortunately his laptop met an unfortunate accident (the dogs ran through the cables and pulled it off the table) and so he's confined to the main one... and since he has a touch of dyslexia, I wouldn't be so cruel as make him sit and write everything out! :-) (or would I...?)

I was only kidding -

would you? - lol!
PS - Does the 'keyboard' help to improve his spelling of words, I mean more so than it clearly helps every one of us

Hi Q9 (where does the '9' come from?) - Tempted...Very tempted!! But, no I wouldn't :-(

I got him his laptop, because he was finding the computer helped him so much in his studies. Of course, he can use spell-check, but that's not where the biggest use comes in. His writing's not good, and it is such hard work to physically write, he hardly ever gets anything down. But typing, now that's another matter!
