(Inter-)National XYZ Day – seriously?

When I was growing up, the calendar was marked with all the religious and national holidays, which was fine and easy to follow, especially with birthdays scattered among them. It was a way of keeping track of the passing months and gave me something to look forward to, especially since Mommy was always keen on

Gin Yoga is a thing… WTF?

There are days when I am incredibly slow on the uptake and not quite up to speed with the latest trends. Well, at my age I no longer feel the need to know every single new and hip trend, I leave that to my daughter. Nevertheless, I don’t want to be called antiquated (yet) either,

Internet Linguistics

A plethora of words born or invented after the internet have unfortunately become an intrinsic part of our lives. They have made their way into our daily language and I dislike them intensely, beginning with the word welp. What the hell is welp? Who uses it and why? A lot of people on facebook and

“Have You Googled It?”

Gather around the virtual fireplace children, and let me tell you a story… Once upon a time, many bites ago, in a long-forgotten analog world, humans used to gather around tables or camp fires and have conversations about life, family, school, work and the burdens of the soul. Families had home-cooked meals together, parties were
