What year is it?

So we appear to be ‘enjoying’ the 2020 Olympics. Is this simply because they had the posters and signage done? I think it would have been very cool and 21st-century if they had simply send around a bunch of people with Sharpies and spray cans to alter the signs!

Does this mean that in the future we can attach unrelated numbers to events rather than follow the clearly outmoded practice of using the actual year? Assuming this to be the case, and due to the fact that I have recently had a significant birthday, I am planning to use 2000 as my year of birth from now on. Not only that, I shall adjust it every fifth year to ensure that I am permanently in my twenties.

Hinterland – the budget cut

Visited Aberystwyth for the first time in 44 years! Found my Auntie Kitty’s B&B and my Auntie Gwen’s farm where I met the wife of my Grandmother’s sisters grandson!!! Also got very wet and blown around in 70 mph winds! Met lots of friendly people – Great weekend!

Also visited Devil’s Bridge for the sake of authenticity …….

Tip of the day!

Anyway here’s what happened yesterday. I had seen an image filter for the iPhone which looked like it might be useful for a particular project. It was offering a 3 day free trial. After a bit of thought, the annual cost of £24.99 seemed a lot for how often I would use it, after this project. So I cancelled it, allowing me to still use the app for three days. I immediately got a message saying: ‘What about this for an offer? £9.99 for a year’s subscription!’ So I got 60% discount. I might still cancel it after two days, but next time you see a free trial this might be worth a try!

I am constantly amazed at how services are priced on the internet. ‘Today we’re giving massive discounts! Our series of webinars on ‘How to make your fortune on the internet’ normally costs $2400 but for 24 hours you can buy it for $9.99′ Who says they are worth $2400 ?
