More of that Stuff

Life can get pretty hectic at times and mine has been over the last
few weeks, there are all sorts of things that have been going on, one of
them will be more obvious to anyone watching BBC4 on August the 30th at 9:00 pm

Mind you there have been other things going on, last night I finally
managed to go swimming, I have been promising myself, and the other
members of TAGS that I would get out and wet for ages; it was such a
relief to get down to Lewisham and join the boys and girls for a swim.  
i am pretty active, and that keeps my muscular skeletal health fairly
good, but I do very little that challenges my heart/ling fitness so
swimming is very good for me, as well as being fun.

course for many people the Olympics have been a major distraction, but I
can't really claim that as much of an excuse since I am not very
interested in most of the sports that are included. having Rugby sevens
helped this time, but until they include motor sport and cricket I'm
unlikely to be too interested.

21st Century Problems

A while back I mentioned that I had decided to join the 21st Century and get a "Smart phone" well I managed that OK a couple of months back. I am still getting used to it especially the touch screen, it feels as though I am as likely to disconnect a call as answer it, mind you I get the distinct impression that the last thing a lot of people use their mobile device for is talking to people.  Certainly most of my communication with my daughter seems to be by text message.

I have worked out that customising your phone is meant to be a good thing, I have even managed to use a few Apps, however much I dislike the term, I will admit that I do particularly like the cover I bought on E-Bay. I suspect that one of the reasons I like it so much is that it matches the desktop on my computer.

I have had the phone a few months yet there still seems to be so much that I still can't do, I think I need a lesson from a 14 year old!   Even though it has only been a short time and I haven't got much on it I still find myself agreeing with Rat
