Reminded That I’m Getting Older

I know with every day that passes, I get that little bit older. It’s not something I worry about, nor actively spend any real amount of time thinking about. However when someone famous dies, it kids of gives you that reminder that we are all mortal.

Just heard today that Lou Reed died. I have to admit, I’ve never been a huge Lou Reed or for that matter Velvet Underground fan, but you’d have had to have had your head buried in a ground, not to know Walk on the Wild Side. He was a person that lived life to the full and it invariably contributed to his demise. He had a liver transplant last year, the old one, having seen an inordinate amount of action.

And so another piece of my childhood has shuffled off this mortal coil. He has undeniably left a rich musical legacy, that I am sure I will continue to dip into. Knowing me, I’ll suddenly become a fan, after all these years.

Where Does the Time Go?

Wow it’s been nearly 2 years since my last post. It’s not that I actively decided not to post anything. I think that with blogging it becomes a habit, that if you let fall by the wayside, it becomes really hard to get back into. I recently got a nice, shiny, new HP Chromebook, with the aim to get myself writing again.

What’s a Chromebook?
Well it’s a laptop computer, that basically just runs Google’s Chrome browser.

Why would anyone want that?
One of my main problems before, is that I wanted to write. However by the time I’d turned on my Netbook, logged in and got to actually writing, it could take as long as 10 minutes, while Windows sorted it’s crap out. With the Chromebook I am up and running in a matter seconds. And no I am not exaggerating. For many people who only check Facebook, Twitter, Email and their other stuff on-line, a Chromebook is ideal.

So with my new tool in my utility belt, we shall see what happens. Be seeing you.
