Annual Leave Break – 2 Weeks Off

Let me just take this opportunity to thank all of the visitors to my Blog(s) – except the spammers of course. Thankfully the majority of spam is removed without having to check it over. I would love for the real comments to be posted without having to check them first, however there is still a lot of spam that makes it through and that needs to be separated from the good stuff.

It is time for me to take a break from Blogging and I have chosen to take my break while on annual leave from work, which will allow me to do a number of things – get healthier, get some rest, hopefully travel a little at some point, read some books, etc. It will also give my regular visitors a chance to have a break from my ramblings and carry on. There is plenty of content to look at in the archives though, so feel free to browse those while I take my 2 week hiatus.

So thanks again and feel free to leave some thoughts and comments along the way. Have a great couple of weeks :-)

Unwritten Rules Everyone Needs To Follow

The link below is to a great article concerning unwritten rules for all – maybe a few readers could pick up a much needed hint or two?

Sick Again

Hi all – I have been trying to keep the Blog going in recent days despite being ill again – however, as I continue to get worse it is probably wise to have a complete break for the rest of the week and get as much sleep as I can.

I have had pneumonia 3 times since November last year (twice in November and once last month) and have come down sick again. Thought I was improving over the last couple of days but have once again developed the ‘shiver me timbers (chills and fever)’ tonight. So I plan to be away from the keyboard for the rest of the week in a bid to finally get over all of this illness. I apologise for the interruption to Blog posts in the mean time.

New Look

Hi all. I have changed the appearance of the Blog and I think it does look a lot better. The main reason for the change was that the titles of posts had for some reason stopped appearing on the front page. I could find no way to correct the issue and thought a change of theme may work – it has. Having changed the theme, I do think the Blog appears much better overall.

The other small change is the Blog title – I have shortened it a little to just Random Thoughts. So not a great change – the larger title made the appearance of the Blog look just that little bit awful. Now we can’t have that lol.

I hope you find the new look helpful.

Blog Update: Computer Issues & Illness

Hi all (and an especially large hello to regulars), just a bit of an update on the Blog. I haven’t posted much in the last week due to illness and was about to start doing so again when my computer bit the dust – died, gave up the ghost, packed it in… Anyway, I have now a new computer and currently I am in the process of setting it up, moving my files about, installing software, etc. It will still be a few days until I have everything sorted out and I am able to resume normal service. Thankfully I have been able to salvage all my content and data.

I’ll be seeking to bring the Blogs back online over the next few days – hopefully one or even two may be back with fresh posts tonight. Thanks for your patience.
