Beyond the Sphere

Well, computer me is. Real me is trying to do a million things at once so I can have a relaxing time later!

Posted for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday.

Oops. I seem to have ran out of scheduled posts… must rectify that as soon as possible!

In the meantime, here’s my experience with the Northern Lights whilst in Cluddunt.

Started off with a normal Sunset, on the hotel roof with the added hot-tub:

Quickly, the lighting began to change:

The temperature stayed the same, but the sky became darker:

Then, we were bathed in the most magnificent green:

But it didn’t last long and things looked more normal once again:

Whatever normal is, mind…


My Spam Folder has only recently been cleared out… but not before I made a note of all of the comments to use in a future post! And guess what? This is the said post!

Hermes Birkin started things off with…

Also, love the fan art. I’m tempted to give it a go myself some time once I have a working monitor on “MY” computer again. My monitor died so I’m using my husbands computer and he doesn’t have the same art programs that I do on mine.

I did feel for Hermes Birkin, I really did. The post she left the comment on had nothing to do with art whatsoever, but she may have scanned a few of my other posts before leaving this message about her and her husband’s computer issues. They are very clever these spammers.

Cartier Love had this to say…

Awesome information, thank you very much for simplifying my search for good butter.

Erm. Ah. Yes. I see. I haven’t yet done a post on good butter although anything is possible.

Another Cartier, Cartier Circe this time, was enthusiastic…

Hi, I check your new stuff on a regular basis. Your story-telling style is awesome, keep doing what you’re doing!

I don’t mind comments like this, but the post it was left on was a photo post so it didn’t exactly fit.

Brak Gold said…

Ah, gosh, yours look so perfect! I made regular and ichigo daifuku the other day… They tasted great, but the texture was off, and they were hideous. I mean, really, they were…super ugly. The next day I made dorayaki with the leftover anko and they were…

I hesitantly did a quick search for ‘ichigo daifuku’ and with a sigh of relief discovered it was food:

They actually look quite good as well, being honest. I can only presume they don’t look the same as Brak’s, reading his/her comment.

Cartier Ring (I’m attracting a lot of Cartiers at the moment, aren’t I?) had a pressing question…

Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

Sorry Car – I can’t help you there. Have you tried doing a web search for it?

Hermes Luck (ooh look – another Hermes) couldn’t quite find the words for their question…

?????? ????. ??????????, ??? ? ?????? ???????? ?? ??????? ? ????????? ??????? ?????? ???? ????? ???????????. ?????????.

My answer, Hermes is __________ ________ ______ _________ _______ _______ _____ ___________ __ ___ ___!

Anony Manus asked…

Good afternoon. Tell me, how in the Yandex browser on the android in the favorites to create a folder? I would be very grateful. Thank you.

Good afternoon, Anony. With the what in the where now? Ah. I see. You have to turn the dial until you see the Luna Setting VIII, and wait for the screen to turn gold. Then, rapidly shake the device to drain all of the water.

Bvlgari Black had a technical suggestion…

Wow, this is amazing, I thought that my laptop was just getting ruined (as I do let my daycare use it often). I never would have thought of the nUM lock key changing the FN keys, maybe I should have considering lots of them are numbers ! Thanks so much…

You’re welcome Bvlgari. Anything to help.

Tesi Casdye had medical matters in mind…

Hi I have recently suffered from sinusitis and otitis media. I got sick on the 21 I was running a fever and all. By the 25th my fever had went away but my hearing was muffled so I went to the doctors he prescribed antibiotics and told me to take Zyrtec…

I hope you’re feeling better now, Tesi.

Mens Mond had a technical question…

sir, i am an engineering student. i want to charge 12V 1.2Ah lead acid battery using a source which produce an output of 20V, and current in the range of 10mA, so can i charge the battery? if i can then provide me with required cicuitary please

Dear Mens, can’t you work this out for yourself? I only use 12V 1.4Ah lead acid batteries.

Lars Peelpaper wanted to know…

Good afternoon. The question interests. I want to paint the car completely. Color xeralik. What water is waiting for me. I’ll paint myself and the first time. Do I need to mum and primed cars. Tell me please what should be the consistency. Thank you in advance.

Dear Lars, I’m very pleased you asked. I have been wanting to share this information for a while now. And using the Galacian term ‘xeralik’, meaning ‘general’, was a masterstroke! Firstly, however, you need to actually decide on a colour. Once you’ve done that, make sure the paint is sticky enough to stick. You don’t want it coming off after all your hard work.

Bvlgari Knockoff (these names are very familiar, aren’t they?) was very complimentary…

I love the website layout ! How did you make it. Its so cool!

Thank you, Bvlgari. It was off the shelf.

And finally, L Diamond had this to say…

?Your Post are gorgeous and useful.Thanks for sharing your good experience with us.You is an amazing artist! ????

Why thank you, L.

But he/she went on…

nice and wonderful tips,i really like this,thank you so much dear for sharing very useful details,keep up dear….

I’m trying to keep up, L, I really am. I have spam to read, and comments to reply to, and blog posts to write, and pictures to create, and photographs to take, and work, and eat, and sleep, and… and… yes. I am keeping up. But thank you for saying so.

And there we have it. The latest round-up of spam that I left to fester in my Spam Folder until it was automatically deleted. In the midst of all that, there were some genuine comments from regular visitors, who I rescued without a quibble. I’m kind like that!

Spam – pointless, but funny… on occasion!

Have you had any fun spam lately?


Sigh.

I don’t know what’s happened with the ‘world’s favourite search engine’ of late, but it has, in my humble opinion, become a trifle rubbish.

I think of somebody who I haven’t seen for many a year, and just do a quick ol’ search of their name and notice in the returned results that their surname has been struck through with the word ‘missing’ added. The same with their first name… but I have many results returned for, say, tables made out of oak, which had absolutely nothing to do with what I was searching for in the first place. If I’d have known that I was going to get rubbish back, I’d rather have saved my time than searching in the first place.

Mutter. Grumble. Gripe.

I read recently that this is because ‘they’ don’t just want to do a straightforward search, but want to do a ‘conversational’ search instead. For me, that’s pointless too. If I want to search for something, I just want to search for it, and not bother knowing what the search engine is doing that evening, or how the weather is in their part of the world.

If there’s nothing listed for what I search for, I’d rather just be told that and nothing else… I can then try a different approach.

Is that too much to ask for in this day and age?

(By the way, I wouldn’t mind as much if the results were humorous… but tables made out of oak???!!!)

(By the way again, all names have been redacted / extracted / removed from this post just so they do not appear in any search results. Although they probably wouldn’t have anyway!)

(And by the way – if you or any search engines out there are interested, it was a wonderfully gorgeous Spring Day today. Absolutely fabulous!)


Again it is hot Hot HOT!

A list to cool things down

A Cascading Waterfall

There’s nothing more chilling (cooling and relaxing – works both ways here!) than running water. In my Land of Peace and Tranquility, I have a waterfall where I visit within my Mind’s Eye when I need to relax and cool off! As well as the water cascading, rainbows appear all over the place as the sun catches the droplets of water. There’s a magical feel here… with an expectation to see a Unicorn, or Dragon, or some other mystical creature appear into the clearing from the Forest for a drink.

A Gentle Breeze

The water creates a lovely breeze when you stand close to it. I do it often – I don’t mind getting wet in my imagination. I don’t mind it in real life actually – but in my imagination I’m dry again instantly. The breeze carries with it an enchanting melody – a hum – sometimes an eerie echo – and that’s how I know I’ve reached my special place.

A Refreshing Glass of Chilled Lemonade

Instantly, an iced glass holding chilled lemonade appears in my hand. I drink. Slowly savouring the fizz, the flavour, and the relaxing chill that fills my mouth. Delicious!

An Idyllic Forest

I turn my attention over to the Forest itself. The Forest of Tranquility arcs around the clearing, breaking only for the ocean view. Lush greenery and dense, shadowed woodland give way to the pebbled path which leads down to the sandy beach and open and crystal clear sea. Gentle waves silently roll inland from where I stand. Peering back into the Forest itself, it takes a while for the shadowed darkness to reveal its secrets; pathways leading this way and that. Some I will have to explore one day!

A Summer Shower

I’ve just dried off from the spray off the waterfall, and suddenly it rains. Heavily. Refreshingly. With a burst of thunderous applause overhead. These Summer thunderstorms are very refreshing, and really do cool the air somewhat. Now that it’s stopped, I definitely feel cooler… although a little damp once again. Never mind – I will soon be dry once again.

A Hot Cup of Tea

And speaking of being dry – a lovely cup of tea to finish things off. On a hot day, tea does wonders to cool things. Or maybe that’s my imagination as well.

-*-*-*-*-

There we have it. An imaginary list of six items to cool things down on a hot Summer’s day. For Six Word Saturday to boot! I’m feeling cooler already… and that Feels Good!
