JaM - A Week of Technology
JaM - taking Just a Moment to gather & share the things you have noticed, consumed, created &/or bought during your week....
It seems that you are never too old to learn new things and to just have a go at things you never thought you would do. A couple of months ago I started an online Tafe Course and I am slowly adjusting to being 'back at school' again after quite a few decades. This week I had a couple of classes with a 'trainer' and of course being an on line course meant the classes were online too. Wednesday morning, 7.30am saw me chatting to my trainer who was at her house in Auckland, NZ via Skype and 2.30 that afternoon I had another meeting on Skype with a different 'Trainer' but this one also saw us sharing and working on the same page online. It is simply amazing what we can do just sitting in a chair in front of the Computer and I am sure that along the way I am going to learn a lot more.
I also met up with an old friend thanks to my son Ben buying a new PS3. When the kids were young they had a Playstation and Crash Bandicoot was one of the games I loved sitting down and playing. It was fun to sit down the other night and get re-acquainted with Crash and all his adventures. Ben keeps asking me if I want to find some more modern games to play but I am quite happy to sit down now and then and visit with the old and familiar.
This week for me has been all about Technology, both old and new. What have you been up to this week, do you want to Take a Moment and share?
When I was in Primary School a little while back, we had reading in the Library once a week and we would have a chapter of a story read to us. There were probably a lot of different books read over the years but the only ones I remember are the Faraway Tree series and the Magic Wishing Chair books. We would hang on every word and would wait very impatiently to hear the next installment.
The only other one's I remember are The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe which has also continued to be a favourite. I have only recently bought the complete boxed set and will read them all again one day. And Milly Molly Mandy-There is a very old copy in the cupboard somewhere.
Maybe these are the reason I love Fantasy Novels now. For more reading memories visit Lisa here,
