Flippant Friday……… Going for a Paddle


High Water……

It is the holiday season, so if you are off to the Beach for a paddle in the sea, you best be prepared.  Do you know the time when high tide is due?

Thank fully this Guest House is thoughtful enough to care….

Flippant Friday……. it is all a Tease!

Brain Teasers 1

Brain Teasers…… Why?

Young or old we have all had to grapple with the challenges of new technology….long gone are the days of simple phones, computers are part of all our lives and even todays cars, TV’s and kitchens are high tech!

So why are we constantly bombarded with a hundred and one ways to keep our brains active….. at times I think my brain is suffering from having an overloaded RAM.

Far from a brain teaser I think a darkened room and a little bit of peace and quiet is what is needed.
