Here we are again in the month of May with three very important celebrations.
Our 52nd wedding anniversary.
A very special birthday.
Our 52nd. wedding anniversary is tomorrow Monday 6 May, New Zealand time. As was the custom back in 1961 we were married on a Saturday afternoon, in the main city church. Pam at twenty-three was a beautiful bride indeed. This may be the first of the fifty-two celebrations that we have not celebrated together. Today Pam is taking a week's holiday at her sister's home hundreds of miles south of here. On the big day tomorrow, she will be there and I will be here, waiting for her return.
Mother's Day next Sunday, will be a very special opportunity to once again show our gratitude to our very special lady, who never fails to generously share her very busy life with all of our immediate family, our eight grand-children, and our six great grand-children.
Last but not least on the 19 May Pam will be one year older. Regardless of her seventy-six years, Pam will still toil as hard as ever for our immediate family, our very large extended family, and her many long lasting friends. We are all very grateful indeed.
Every year the month of May is very special for all of us.

We are gradually coming out of a long term summer drought in this part of NZ. Further showers this morning and we are very grateful.
How's your weather at present where ever you may be?

A seaman meets a pirate in a bar, and talk turns to their adventures on the sea. The seaman notes that the pirate has a peg-leg, a hook, and an eye patch.
The seaman asks, "So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?". The pirate replies, "We were in a storm at sea, and I was swept overboard into a school of sharks. Just as my men were pulling me out, a shark bit my leg off."
"Wow!" said the seaman. "What about your hook?". "Well", replied the pirate, "We were boarding an enemy ship and were battling the other sailors with swords. One of the enemy cut my hand off."
"Incredible!" remarked the seaman. "How did you get the eye patch?".
"A seagull dropping fell into my eye," replied the pirate.
"You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?", the sailor asked incredulously.
"Well," said the pirate, "It was my first day with my hook..."
How about that?

Since nobody will be reading this, let's say that I've forgotten all the news that I was about to share with you.

A warm welcome to anybody who is kind enough to share their time. That is no more than a few moments in a whole life time.

Using Opera and further exploring Mozilla Firefox. I also have readily available Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. Safari is on the desktop and is visited from time to time. Have tried many other browsers but the ones mentioned, seem to be the best. A very important browser feature for me, is the downloading of videos - easy and fast. Google Chrome and Firefox seem to be best on both counts.
Unfortunately nobody reads my blog - except myself - which means that I press on regardless, enjoying each and every moment. Amen.

I remember well, maybe twenty years ago when I had only one browser available on the desktop, everything seemed very straight forward. Nowadays with dozens available, I immediately have a choice of three or four. The result is that I fiddle with all and become fully confident with possibly none. I wonder if I am alone with this predicament. If you too suffer the same fate please let me know. Possibly I suffer alone.
