2017 is here

I started to upgrade and move this website this year (https and all that) but the early Thanksgiving is catching me out.

So, once more for old times sake.

We are ready for 2017 thanksgiving entries.

As per previous years, we will use a simple limited time use username and password:

  • Username: tg2017
  • Password: tg2017

Remember to put your name in the title e.g. Lucy’s List for 2017.

Use this link to post (click on me!).

Keep the list true and simple:

* memories of 2017 (aka favourite books, movies, smells, music etc)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Gordon's List 2016

Even my cynical self is shaken this year, so let’s focus on:

  • potato chips
  • french fries
  • wonderful Vietnamese cuisine
  • lack of miles in the sky
  • recapturing memories of > decade ago
  • finding that those earth shattering moments you had always wondered about (ears, tantrums, dresses, peer pressure) might not be unsurmountable
  • always, bikes, outside, mountains, sea, beaches, trees et al
  • traditions, and this is updated to 10 years of my posts (because Danika thought it would be a good idea):
  • supportive family structures

Book:

  • Dang you Martin, it’s got to be Delilah Dirk and the sequel and I’m pretty sure they are Lucy’s too.  So although I read almost all of the James SA Corey, a graphic novel captures the win.

Music:

I sort of finally started the streaming thing this year (Amazon Prime) so that might have contributed to a lack of excitement, focus and stand out albums, but three solid, solid, well played (according to my iTunes) albums of the year are:

Movies:

Not been keeping track.  Enjoyed Star Wars but am going to go with the Netflix streaming TV thing and certainly the start of the season, and the finale, of:

 

2016 is open for business!

2015 signs off

tg2015 disabled; ping me if you have anything to change.

I leave you with something new I found today, that is old news to some, the seven social sins:

 

On October 22, 1925, Gandhi published a list he called the Seven Social Sins in his weekly newspaper Young India.

Politics without principles.
Wealth without work.
Pleasure without conscience.
Knowledge without character.
Commerce without morality.
Science without humanity.
Worship without sacrifice.
