Back to my Necklaces

I've been doing some more "beading" today. Although it was a gorgeous day I got so engrossed in making jewellery that I didn't even venture outside.
A friend of mine has a webite that is worth having a look at. It is
I have also been twittering....not what I expected. It's just like verbal voyeurism really. You can follow heaps of celebs and see what they're up to but they more than likely won't ever get any messages you send unless they follow you. Confused??
Day off tomorrow...yeah! I might catch up on the news of the world. See what horrible things we are doing to each this time, still. It's hard to get your head around that the people who instigate appalling situations are basically people like us, with issues no doubt, but still only human beings. What, or who gives, them the right to inflict atrocities, humilitiation or degradation on others? I suppose we are all complicit by our silences.

Does it make you feel small
that your voice isn't heard?
Do you wish you had courage to act?
No that's just absurd.
What could you do to ease someone's plight?
What we could do is stand up and fight.
Not with our guns or with our hand
Fight with our numbers, woman and man.
Put it out there that we're as angry as hell
And soon enough our numbers will swell.
Then they will listen, we won't be ignored
Maybe then peace & dignity will be restored.

All this new technology!!!

I've been sitting at this computer all day getting my blog ready to go out into cyberspace.

I don't know what to put in and what to leave out. I don't want to give too much away about myself...I'm selfish like that...but I don't want to hold back either.

My husband is fearful of me putting all this info out there for the world to see and I keep re-assuring him that, more than likely, no-one is going to be interested in what I have to say anyway. Nine times out of ten I'm sure he is feigning interest in what I have to say.

If I was a good cook I'd include some recipes...but that's not going to happen.

If I could sing I'd learn how to insert a video of me belting out a few lines..again, not going to happen.

I have written some poems over the years...maybe one day I'll share one with whoever is out there.

I could talk about my family..sons, sisters, aunties, parents etc but that might end with me defending myself in some local court in some random town/city. As good natured as they all are I just don't trust myself not to tell all the dirt, spill all the beans, release those skeletons. And things have a way of biting back...maybe one of them will start a retaliatory blog and tell you all the seedy things from my past that haunt me in my sleep and cause me to have issues...whoa too much info got out then.

Maybe the best thing to do is to pack this up for the night and start fresh in the morning. Rise early, have a breakfast of champions (coffee & cigarette) then do some soul searching and let you have it....

Below is a picture of my second favourite creatures in the world...COWS. Luv 'em
