SEASON'S GREETINGS


INTERNET ADDICTION

I've devised a quiz which is either irrelevant fluff or serious research. Either way I welcome honest answers  even if the truth is embarassing. I posted this on Facebook as it's more relevant to social media addicts than it is to bloggers' and other sober internet users but here goes anyway.

1. When you have posted something online, how many times a day do you click back to check for reactions?

2. When you check back are you already on your computer or phone engaged in digital activity?

3. If you're not online, do you interrupt whatever else you're doing in order to click back again?

4. How long do you spend, after you've checked your own online contribution, just clicking here and there to see who is saying what about this or that?

5. Do you think your answers to my questions indicate a serious addiction to digital media?

6. What kind of rehab would you, me, or any other addict of this type be willing and able to undertake?

UK ELECTION RESULT: WHAY HAVE WE DONE?

Thoroughly disgusted, revolted and appalled not only by the jaw-dropping choice so many people have made of giving carte blanche to Boris Johnson.....BORIS JOHNSON???....and his gang to decide the future of this country, but by the smug faces of presenters on all the news channels spouting words words words, puffs of smelly smoke signifying absolutely nothing when they should be crying:
WHAT HAVE WE DONE?

ELECTION UPDATES

For the benefit of those who are not in the UK, or who are here but somehow managing to avoid the crucial issues facing us, here are some extracts from the news. They are chosen by me so, of course, you may say they are biased. I don't mind being biased in this case. The facts spek for themselves.
