Not a proper blog

Thursday, May 02, 2013

From thinking of Twitter as something for people with too much time on their hands, I've recently become a bit of a fan.

A lot depends on who you follow. Being English, I follow the BBC. (I can just hear you thinking 'jolly good chaps!' and trust me, they don't talk like that any more except on Radio 4).

For people who don't use Twitter for news purposes, all the news sites tweet when they put up a new feature and put in a link. Well this evening, as I'm curled up on the sofa, with remaining cat (for details of the other cat see confitdecanard.wordpress
.com/
) I got a link to this article. www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wa
les-22385220


And I thought 'aw'. Isn't it sweet? Most of us would be foaming at the mouth but this lady just takes it all in her stride.

I hope they give her a free season ticket!

    I've had a twitter account for a while. Because I teach I usually windup becoming somewhat familiar with new technologies. It has some personal benefits but mostly I do it to (try to) stay slightly ahead of the kids. That's a losing battle for sure. One day I used the symbol # to represent number and the kid's are all "What's hashtag 3 mean?????" ...... sigh Somedays retirement looks soooo good.

    Yes, I would have had a hissy fit if all those people called me. I've been known to get quite snippy with telemarketers, especially as I am on the do not call list!
She is a sweet lady!

    I guess I am technologically retarded. I don't understand how to use Twitter or how to tweet.

    So sorry to hear about Percy. I know he was a good friend and companion. It's tough to make the decision when faced with a pet's illness.

    I am so sorry about your cat. We have two cats and 6 dogs. Two of the dogs are quite elderly and one of them will likely not be with us by next year and it will be very hard to lose her.

    I'm very sorry to hear about Percy. Several years ago we had a cat who developed a mouth tumor, and had to make the same choice. I still miss him, but you did the right thing.

  I'm so, so sorry to hear about your dear cat! I can identify! Our dear cat Jinx wasn't acting himself so we took him to the vet. It was cancer, and trying to prolong his life a few more days, a week or so more would only subject him to needless misery.

So we had to say Goodbye. I'd expected to take him home with medicine and that he would get better from whatever had him down, but that fast he was gone.

I send you my condolences. Losing a dear pet is so sad.

    So sorry about Percy. It's hard to lose a feline member of the family like that. Glad you have another for company. We don't get to twitter (no cell service up here), but we do BBC on line in NH, USA.

    Like the not proper blog. sorry to hear about Percy, it's dreadful to lose a cat. don't know what i'd do without Molly.
Er, do you write professionally? cos you should!
and thanks for the bbc link. i agree they should give her a season ticket, if only for keeping her calm and taking it in her stride.
