Thursday 15 July

Moo are having a 48 hour 30% off sale, ending at one minute to midnight tonight.  I allow myself to be sold to, and find 20 photos to turn into postcards.

~  I go out briefly, and when I come back, my new refurbished teeny-tiny shiny white dolly-sized notebook computer has arrived.  Eventually I remember you have to press the button on the Livebox ( I just mis-typed that 'Lovebox', which sounds much more interesting...), and lo!  I am connected.  I find my way to my Gmail, and find a mail from someone I always love to hear from as the first message on my new toy.  Still need to find my way around it, and preferably order myself a new miniature pair of hands, so I'm not posting from it now, but I was able to read some blogs from the sofa, without trailing cables.

Pansies.  Somewhere on the way home from Morlaix, back in April.

WOW! What an intensely colored photo, Lucy. It is beautiful - only that word is inadequate.

Made my mouth go, "Ooooooo, look at that!" and made my eyelids roll up to my eyebrows.

how can I get a lovebox? Actually, I'm finally going to take the plunge and get a computer because my little Nokia can't handle the blogging and the budget cuts around here have cut the library hours and funding levels to shreds. Gotta write my Congressman with oompf. What are they thinking? Cutting library hours and funding? Fools.

I'm not sure what pansies have to do with your new "lovebox" but I must say that is a gorgeous, beautiful, fantastic photo.

Ah, to live in France . . .

It always tickles my fancy that the word, pansy is derived from the French pensee, thought.

Beautiful, beautiful! I love the purple and yellow combination. That's what I always buy now when I buy pansies.

That photo is alive; and the flowers seem lively and regal, like nobles socializing at a royal court.
