Yes, I do mean my early and probably not the majority of the population's view of early but this ismy grumpy blog.
I really do not need to be awake at 7.00am! I am well into in my pre-dotage years and so have finished with the jobs that require me to be up at the crack of dawn [and earlier]. I now go to bed very late - just because I can - and expect to wake up equally as late [some hope] ... And no, I don't care how early RG Group and their associates had to get up to be here to make all this noise ... moan, whinge.
So, RG Group - with this daily early morning beep-bloody-reversing-beepof stuff being fork-lifted off of lorries under my bedroom window [reminiscent of Pall-Ex].
And bang-clatter-rattle-rattle of large equipment being deposited [in a very Heanor Haulage type of way] in a similar nearby position - you have now lost your previously 'infinitely superior gold star' standing and plummeted to 'noisy gits' status
Please rectify this thoughtlessness for my grumpydom ASAP or I'll probably have another little early morning 'moment', where I'll be found shouting loud but polite abuse through my bedroom window - note to self - must wear big pyjamas just in case ... Hmm, maybe not. If they wake me early again then they deserve to suffer ...
I've reached the age now where I've got an opinion on just about everything and I don't mind sharing it. In fact everyone has the right to my opinion! I, ahem, look YEARS younger than my sister [I've just put this bit in for her benefit as she's bound to read it] who is 7 years younger than me - but I have been well preserved [alcohol] and I'm extremely idle. I've been known to make the odd card or two but recently got a tad bored with crafting. Considering how much this particular hobby has cost me so far I'd better get 'unbored' pretty damn quick! I have a penchant for using long words that just pop into my head, this is essential as I'm now losing small words at an exceedingly alarming rate ...
I realise that most of my readers fall into two categories ... they're either technologically challenged or of a crumbly age ... or indeed both.
Therefore I decided to be kind - because I can be - and create a little guide, which I can add to if I think of anything new or if someone questions something.
I also realise that none of my crumblier readers venture anywhere near this informative side bit of the page, thus making this guide a complete waste of my time. But I'm nothing if not dogged and I can always say ... 'well my Dummies Guide tells you how to do that!'
Hmm, maybe I should put it at the top instead of the side, we'll see.
1) If you see a photo you would like a closer view of then click on it, it will take you to another page with a bigger picture. If you click on the photo it will enlarge. I can remember one crumbly friend trying to squint at the 'Christmas Menu' because she didn't know this.
2) If you come across some different coloured - underlined - writing [usually a lurid green] and I'm referring to another bit of my blog, again click on the writing as it's a direct link to that post.
In fact, if your arrow turns into a hand, then it's a clickable link.
But you can check first at www.heavens-above.com for International Space Station, Iridium flares, radio satellites pass times (very, very busy up there) - On a clear night you should see something man made practically every hour. Using Stellarium you can find where the planets are (no or minimal twinkle) and stars, especially Sirius (twinkles all colours).
