Alter Ego

Check out my alter ego - Erik the Witch (from "Erik the Red" - name - and profession - I wish!). Thanks to Constance when I was checking her blog. A new toy!!

Mmmm! Beautiful Cupcakes!

I was having a look at the various options on Flickr Toys and made this mosaic of cupcakes. These photos other people have taken but doesn't it make your mouth water?

I Love Cupcakes!

Google Notebook

Yesterday some of us looked at using Google Notebook. I set up some folders that aren't neccesarily to do with Library work, but boy, how neat when you find cool, informative websites and can 'clip' them into your notebook. I have recommended it to my youngest daughter who is going on a field trip at the end of the year, to Greece for her honours papers (Classics at VUW). She will be able to get lots of relevant information at her fingertips and will just need to find an Internet cafe to log on - or take her laptop with the wireless card, which will be cheaper!!

I was pretty pleased with myself because the other family members (who are a lot more computer savvy than me) didn't know about Google Notebook. Yippee!

My Life's Philosophy

The Road Not Taken
Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence;
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
