Introduction (Fandango’s Friday Flashback)

Fandango posted about how he is getting ready to move house, so his WordPress activity will be hit and miss for the next few months. But he made it today and has posted his Friday Flashback.

I have always liked the idea of his Friday Flashback, so shall also post my own. As much as anything, it reminds me of where I was. Hopefully, you will find it entertaining too. Whether he gets to post or not, I’ll continue to post under the Fandango’s Friday Flashback tag, just to stay consistent with my previous posts on the theme.


Hahaha, I was rummaging through my old posts and chuckled some when I found an amusing post I ceated today, two years ago. In fact I remember I had to re-post the video up to YouTube at the same time as I moved from Blogger, because WordPress is anal and will not let me upload videos, despite my having paid for the space already. So I guess it was a quick learning curve to bring YouTube into the loop too.

I’ve never really been big on videos. I used to enjoy taking still photos, but I’m not big on that either any more. In fact, if you’re one of those bloggers who posts vivid photographs of things, that’s why I appreciate your posts. Here is one of mine from when I was healthy:

Switzerland, 2008

But both the camera on my phone, and my old SLR, are now fiddly to work one-handed, plus my eyesight no longer appreciates the finer details. I know the photo above is half-decent, because it has previously received acclaim from other photographers. But for my for my re-post, it was just easier to use the tiny webcam on my laptop instead.

Although the video is two years old, very little else has changed. Maybe I grew up a little bit (unlikely!) but my favourite room, my favourite chair, are still the same, and still as well-lit as they were. In fact I have a small, bright LED which plugs into my USB port, which spots onto the keyboard so I can see to type. If your eyesight isn’t good, they’re cheap as chips from Ikea.

So I hope you enjoy my brief introduction!

    1. So now you no longer need to imagine! Actually the stroke changed my voice a bit, fortunately not much. I’m lucky that I can still communicate as well as before. And the main thing, Google still understands me when I talk to it!
