Milk for Babies!

Every newspaper, magazine, tv advert etc.  We are innundated with products, reasons why!  More intelligent, better mental health, strength and growth …. that’s just a few points!

SO…. Are we, the parents, less intelligent, less able to manage, LESS?

Because we didn’t have these products?  Look in the mirror!? Are we less able?

I’m pretty proud of myself and my husband, but more than that….. proud of my children, both in their twenties!

Marketing and advertising?  Let’s keep grounded!

APPPPPLE……

……  I love my phone, my mis-aproppriated Ipad (didn’t steal, hubby never opened the box, before it…… vanished)!

But, what’s going on….. and how does it affect the common man?

From what I can gather….  US lawmakers want an explanation from Apple!

It seems….. they are supposedly logging our location and info. and putting in hidden files! Is this true?

For what purpose?

Two British researchers discovered something?

What is the impact for/to us regular (Joes)…….?

Is this a marketing stint, or more invasive?

BIG BROTHER???

The pleasures of eating in Malaysia….

…… are endless!

I am the luckiest woman, anywhere in the world!

On my doorstep, literally…. My choices are endless!

First of all,  I am in a society that embraces Indian, Chinese and Muslim fare as a given!

Then we have every other Asian cuisine, a melange of all that is wonderful!

Here the food is so reasonably priced……

I will tell you my favourites….. soon!

TV Channels!

I subscribe every month!  For what exactly?  Repeat after repeat? Someone tell me?

I go to Europe….. Interesting…..

Why is there no competition…… No ….. Nothing! Why aren’t networks competing?

Staggered Birthday Celebrations!!

Over the weekend ‘Special K’ my youngest daughter celebrated a birthday in Sydney (Uni student)….. She was a little upset as she only got one birthday card from her extensively spread family!

I explained that everyone had sent a card, or in some cases a gift!  I immediately sent texts to close family…… Did you remember birthday? All were adament that they had.  In the meantime; am blessing  text messages, they sent heartfelt wishes…….!

Today I was talking to my daughter and the great thing she said was….. “Well, my birthday is over, I had so much to do on Saturday…. But it’s over!  Now, I can really enjoy every card or gift that arrives.”   How wonderful is that…. OK, I did direct the conversation, but she so agreed.   So rather than being disappointed, she is excited…… which brings me to my point!!!

Most women don’t get flowers very often…. But on my birthday I sometimes receive 3 bouquets.  I love each and every flower, but don’t truly appreciate them!  I would LOVE to have  a staggered delivery….. THEN, every flower would mean so much more?

In the meantime I hope cards will arrive every day for ‘Special K’  and give her joy!
