No more oppression

In the light of the recent attack on their customers, it seems like most current social media are indeed Socialist Media and only exist to make their owners even richer….. which indeed is a typical trait of socialist leaders and

More closings

I feel like dying a little bit, closing down various internet activities that I have fanatically worked on these past 15 years of my life. But many of them were not really active, or useful, anymore. I have started so

Shopping Corona-style

So if you think only my good friend Glenn Colin de Kavanagh-Norman can write adventure stories….. think again… . ‘Operation Spesa’ was successful. Today I had to go down the hill…. My anti-migraine meds ran out, and after 15 days

What happened these past 5 years !?

Where did the time go !?   Last weekend all of a sudden I got very sad and upset. Maybe we get more emotional when turning older, I don’t know. I’ll tell you the reason for it…. Some time ago

Retirement is here

Yup, you read that right…….. I turned 65, so I retired. Well….. or so I believe. But I seem to be the only one. Mind you, I’d LOVE to now ONLY do all the things I love doing….. but it

Running = Fun ?

Let me ask you: How much fun is it to be passed by a fellow runner who doesn’t only go much faster, but is ALSO pushing a pram with his child along…… How much fun is it to be running

I really thought Iwas dying

Not a very positive title is it? Thing is, it’s true. Yesterday morning I woke up at 5:30 and started getting a headache fast. By 7 am I couldn’t get out of bed anymore and was just clinching my head.

No I am not Mr. Niceguy anymore…..

In a discussion that ensued on another website it was declared that ‘we’ in western Europe should be MORE tolerant towards others. It all started after France ‘cleaned up’ some illegal gipsy camps in THEIR country. Well, I’ve experienced the

Microsoft finally lost me…..

On my Flightsim Soapbox. I know, I must be the Last of the Mohicans with SO many people over the past decades pissing on Microsoft for their monopolies, cranky OS’es, disdain for their customers and many other reasons. So call

Facebook Junkies

I am one, that’s for sure. Running two monitors (and sometimes 5), a notebook on the side and a smart phone on my desk, I am back to the old days when I was a ‘cellphone’ junkie. That was when

A bad dream – fantasy or fiction?

A few nights ago I had this bad dream. No, I didn’t wake up all sweaty, but when I did wake up it felt as if I had seen it on tv, or read it somewhere. Everything that happened was

Addicted to Internet…..

… or rather, to my sales website and the sales there. Or the lack of them, at times. I just noticed last week that for the past 6 years I’ve become really addicted. I NEED to make some money, and

Riding ends before it started?

The recent ‘stupid move’ I made, i.e. punching a chair in anger a week ago, may well end my riding season before it even started. Doctor thinks I have a ‘Boxer’s Hand’ and a ruptured middle-hand bone. I can use

The world’s most oppressive flower shop

  Imagine this: an everyday street in Romania with the entrance to the local cemetery, an a few flower shops next to it. Ofcourse, the ideal place to sell flowers and flower arrangements to the grieving visitors. The arranged flowers

Changing My Life

Often when I am down and out with severe headaches I cannot stop thinking. Until I finally fall asleep that is. After this last bout with migraines I did some soul searching. Things aren’t going the way they should, really.

Spinning my Internet Wheels

You won’t see any changes to the blog yet…. that’s because my Internet connection has gone belly-up. Or the cable underneath the driveway, to be more precise. At least, that’s what the ISP’s techie says. Hmpf…. now what. They want

Scams Galore

A while ago I ‘discovered’ Flippa.com. It is an auction site for websites and their domain names. Flippa probably is legit, but the sites offered for purchase must be scams 9 out of 10. Why else would people offer 900/month

Running and Shooting is NOT Simming

Alright, maybe I should rename my blog’s title, since I talk about more than just flying and riding these days. THIS post today is triggered by the new announcement of Call of Duty, Black Ops’s coming ‘add-on’ (First Strike). It

Heading south soon

Yup, it is that time of year again. Time to start preparing to head south, where the days are longer and the roads more twisty. Mind you, we don’t necessarily need to travel to the Alps to get our share

Would you believe it!?

There are even scams in the FS world these days ! It is in my face on Facebook all day long; an ad promising ‘the most releastic flight simulator ever made !!’. So of course I was curious! Could someone

Reno Air Races – such a shame

Don’t get me wrong, I am not opposing speed sports in any way. Have been racing carts and cars myself and would have loved racing motorbikes. But racing dogs, horses, turtles or aircraft is a bit outside of my circle
