An insight into my mind and what is going through it on a random basis (notice the random - no promises to update and post at any regular frequency)

I have been slightly upset about a comment, and perhaps it was not meant to upset me, but it kinda has. I received an anonymous comment on my Freddies it is:

You've had your hello to your Freddies Family up for how long now? 3 or 4 months? still on one replies back. must be a bunch of backward hicks. Probably have never seen or heard of a computer OR insufferable snobs who think they are too good for you kiddo and reality is, its you who should give them the old Freddies who??

Since you choose to remain anonymous, I can only reply back to your comment via a post......

Considering I hear from many of them via e-mail on a regular basis, I am not that upset about a lack of commentation to my hello post. Since I do hear from them, they obviously have a computer so they are not "backward hicks". Nor are they insufferable snobs since, once again, they often send e-mails and ask when I am moving back.

Time and Distance can often dim a friendship, but that does not make that friendship worth anything less. A friend is to be cherished, and not given the old heave ho when life makes that friendship difficult.

I will keep my Freddies friends, and keep them in my thoughts. I am not a fair weather friend who forgets her past friends when she moves on in life to new places, locations, experiences and friends.

Tee hee hee

Take the quiz: "Which Random Irish Gaelic Phrase Are You? "

Pog mo thoin
Pog mo thoin - 'Kiss my ass.'You're one tough bastard, and if anyone doesn't like it, they can kiss your ass. You enjoy fighting and causing grievous bodily harm. Hey! What are you lookin' at, punk?

This was the first Irish phrase I learned, and about the only one that I really remember from my year of living there!

I freely admit it...I've been neglecting this blog a little bit lately! I hate to double post to both of my blogs because there are a few who read the two - why should they have to read everything twice??

To re-cap recent events! I spent a week in Lessines Belgium doing a condensed training course on several Cognos applications, including Upfront, Transformer and Power Point. Rather informative and very useful to learn about.

My friend Russ came to visit from London this past weekend. We had a great time catching up and exploring a little bit around Belgium and Cologne Germany! I was once again disappointed with my rental car and the speed cap of 180 kilometers per hour.....I was hoping to hit 200 this trip.....the cars passing me like I was driving slow sure were!

I believe that is all for now....will try to post a little bit more often. I've received several new postcards from PostCrossing which I need to show off!
