Yes,take a holiday from your blog, if you dare to you will be invaded by Japanese and Russian Spamslugs!

Ah yes , between making malinova, seeing my son and younger sister and preparing for the move which is to be by next week, I was not on here a lot. Sorry about that. Life happens. I will miss this house a lot, I will miss the housemates, and the raspberry pants, the charming bees which visit our garden, and the birds. The place is in chaos as we all get ready. I ended up with some new things, like dishes and pots and pans. I had little need of such things before. I am on a waiting list for a housing complex for people over 55. Iam number 3 on the list. It will take some time. Meanwhile, I will live in the basement of some friends. I will be ok for the Winter. I looked at one place downtown but it was too expensive, and there are even other downtown places which are cheaper and larger for the price.
It has been quite hot in the Yakima Gulag. Smoke from the fires in Wennatchee and B.C. has hit me kind of hard. I don't go out more than necessary.

My son gave me used iPhone, and I have been learning to use it. I really like the fact I can lie down comfortably and go online. There are times I am really tired and don't want to sit up. Especially if it has been hot.

It was all a bit like the Oprah show, look under your seats.... the same friend who gave my son the used iPhone he gave me, gave him a slightly newer one, and the friend's wife gave my son's girlfriend a used iPhone too. I have not figured out how to post here from the iPhone though. My netbook is going to be a part of my life for some time to come. :).

I got advice from my son that fixed the connectivity problems too. I had bought a couple gel packs for taking things to eat with me if I am on bus rides, and he said use them to cool the router and then put a fan on the router. So I did that and things have gone better since. The router was as hoot as a $3 pistol.

Now I am not fighting so hard to get online.

All that was not why I stopped by though. Haris Pasevic in Sarajevo has donea wonderful play about fudbal. He was interviewed on CNN International's 'World View' and it was worth seeing the interview. I am sure the play is good. The report was from Hayat TV.

It has been pretty rainy in the Balkans of late. Betterr than burning up like Russia. I feel for the Russian people suffering like that. The smoke looks miserable. I was in Ketchum for their big fire and it hurt my nose and eyes nonstop. It was nothing like as bad as what Moscow looks like..

You have an iphone? Very nice.. lol
Have you got a link to Pasevic? Good luck with the move.

@ Owen I do not have a link for Pasovic but he was covered by CNN International and was on Hayat TV.
