It's a quiet day today. Apart from the occasional passing car, noise is restricted to the wind chimes wafting in the breeze. 'Er indoors isn't too happy, though, as there aren't any vegetable sellers passing by.
One reason is that lots of folk have returned to their 'hometowns' in order to vote in tomorrow's Presidential Election
but the main reason is that our back street is partially blocked off with a polling station being readied. This should guarantee another quiet day tomorrow until 1pm when the polling finishes. I'll be donning my official International Observer garb of T-shirt and shorts.
Hopefully tomorrow will allow me lots more logging on time to my ISP as businesses will be shut. But I can't blame Telkom for not being able to follow Charlton's failure to lose
yesterday. Apparently it was a good performance
, comparatively speaking, but I really did want to hear the live commentary. It couldn't be heard
in Derby either.
I've had some 'complaints' that my links to the right aren't visible. I presume that these readers are still using Internet Explorer because, when I do, the links can be found floating at the bottom of this page. My recommendation is to use Mozilla Firefox
. What I like about it is its tabs feature and that it seems to block all those nasty Trojan programmes that I.E. seem to allow.
I've written to Blogger
asking for advice, lines of code or whatever it takes to fix this problem.
Those of you who can see my links will notice occasional changes as I play around with the template. Both Google
and Amazon (UK)
have 'allowed' me to add their ads, but I've yet to see them in the visual display I'd prefer. A chance to earn a few bucks is not to be scorned, but that isn't why I'm blogging.
For the time being, I'm making do with a permanent riposte to Mr. Anonymous
who thinks, wrongly, I have a fat expat salary, but is right in that I favour less inequality
in the world.
Have a peaceful Sunday.
