We are consumed by our phones.

We’re so consumed by our phones and social networks, that sometimes we forget to live. True and a sad reflection on us, but, there are places you can go to where there is no signal and that is hilarious. People walking around with their phone held up to the heavens willing 1 bar to show itself. Desperate, not in touch with the rest of the world, no control in a otherwise controlled network society. Mark Zuckerberg, I have a message, 'Social Networking' is in fact 'Anti Social Networking'. People with more than 250 'friends' on Facebook have no real friends, they too caught up with answering their virtual friends they forget to live.
Enough Social media bashing, the people have spoken and I have listened. I sound like a politician, come elections time and they promise the world, come governing time the put up the taxes.
Susan is away catching some sun in Spain and Robert has settled in to his university with one big moan, washing his clothes.
"Clothes washing I feel will be the bane of my existence at uni as it's is horribly complicated, 1 wash has cost me £10 which is insane!"

Now he understands that you need to hung your clothes up and not use the house as your wardrobe, expensive lesson but had to be learnt.
Michael is still working hard and then when he has some time off it is up to Bristol, Why Bristol you may very well ask, what is wrong with Poole?
Gary had his birthday last week and I did wish him well, as I know you all would. Happy Birthday Gary Pants, welcome to an era of being someone who is in his middle ages.
It is definitely autumn here, as you can see from the photo of a clear blue sky, and today marks the first day of taking Sam to the beach with the temperature dropping below 10 deg C, that with the light breeze did bring home the fact that Christmas is only 2 months away and with it those gloriously crisp cold winter days.
All for now.
