This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Off to find a suitable river to muck about in with
the babes - to attempt to teach them what rivers are for -
and to expunge the Townie "ooh my dress might get muddy"
Much fun paddling and slipping about in a river,
seemingly near an old Roman road. Suitable dam building
exploits - fitting considering the rocky terrain. Training
in the ubiquity of sheep, rabbit etc. droppings and the
necessity of treading on them if you are to make any
progress. Much successful de-townification.
On to an abandoned lime kiln on the moors, and
climbed up to an observation point over a huge limestone
quarry - completely invisible from the road / nearby - with
grass banks concealing and muting a vast pit packed with
interesting looking machines. The girls took a great interest
in the various mechanical monsters and their roles, but were
disapointed by a lack of blasting.
On into Grassington and through to find a pleasant
spot near the river to have a picnic lunch;
Home, to watch Jurrasic Park together; hmm. Then
dinner and packed everyone off to bed.
Amazed to see the British media reporting news like
Doctors with religious beliefs are less likely
to take decisions which could hasten the death of those who
are terminally ill, a study suggests. Odd
that the converse is not the news: Doctors with no religious
beliefs are more likely to take decisions which could hasten
death ... etc. I hope my doctor has a high commitment to
(at least my) life.
