I know there were events
moments which stopped me dead
left me reeling at the thrill or the inspiration
and I would think
I will remember this forever
but I don’t recall what they were
nor why or where they occurred

        1. It could be in an external box, with a cable to plug into the ear, giving bag manufacturers a great new product idea – they could make special cases for the box to fit into – lots of colours, fabrics, designs, suitable for both formal and informal occasions.
          There’s money to be made from this. I need to find investors πŸ™‚


  1. That’s the problem isn’t it, when you create stuff. Storing it – then trying to remember where you stored it – then trying to remember what it was you stored – then trying to remember did you remember to store that, it was so good πŸ™‚

            1. I’m afraid so – you’ll know him if you see him and it won’t be a pretty sight.
              He was a silly boy.He smoked a lot of cannabis, and liked to advertise his habit by wearing a silver earring in the shape of a cannabis leaf – back in the days when it was seriously frowned upon. He got charged with possession of the stuff. Because he heard the judge trying his case was a woman, he wore painfully tight jeans to court, thinking it would get him a lighter sentence! I think the unattractive bulge he sported may have been some kind of padding.

  2. BTW, did you know you can ask WP to do a back up. They email it to you. Go to Dashboard, Tools, Export: choose ALL, click Download Export File. WP will email it to you. It contains EVERYTHING on your blog. I’ve done it once – must get into the habit of doing it every couple of weeks. I do back up on Word and then also onto a USB, but that’s just my published posts

    1. Thanks for the advice -I’ll have to do that. I’ve got dropbox (a cloud), but I’m not sure if everything’s on it and it’s too complicated to check. Everything which ends up on my blog starts on my office programme, but I often edit it it on WP, so the finished version is only on WP.

      1. I don’t know what happened, you’ll have a half finished comment probably. Anyway, what I was saying is that the WP backup includes ALL of your blog – comments, settings, images, posts. This is another thing I learnt from Hugh’s Views.

    1. It’s essential. Today I came up with two ideas that got lost, because I couldn’t tear myself away from a waterfall. I was standing pretty much underneath it, getting soaked, so I couldn’t record my thoughts πŸ™‚
      It was worth it.
