April’s RBRC post (this month reading some…)

3 Comments

Last month’s Recycled Book Reading Challenge was a few days later than kick-off and I’m trying to keep better time. Does blogging make your adrenalin race?

#RBRC host post for this month can be found here.

[aside… listening to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gm7I2jHPsSU not sure if  it’s Definitive Nine Inch Nails enough… nice ad to listen to, quite nice moozik / muzak… bit incongruous for a ‘With teeth’ fan! note added later (with font in this theme needing admin please NtS**~~ pleased that in continuation the music improved no end and became perfectly relaxing to write and formulate post to. Behind schedule, you have to  “love the sound of deadlines rushing by” and no idea where my Douglas Adams copies are, cos a read of HGttU would be fab too!]

Back to books: screenshot follows from my photo (the original photo I’ve snapped  & placed in my Media Library here at full quality for WordPress assurance that it IS my right ARR and not whatever else). {Dread to think for platform providers these days} (<AI hug, ARR…lol). What pressured times we all attempt to function within. in whatever capacity.

So, this month I’ll be perusing these of my books to hand…

my shadow, for real, 01 April, 2018, late afternoon…

…until it’s safe for me to access other arty books for any reading i might or might not manage to relax with and enjoy…

So those books are (in very brief detail until i can get back to tell you more, whenever that happens to be):

[description, from bottom left toward the right and then up and round toward top left, anti-clockwise, I spose that movement should be described as !]

  1. The Chunky Bears GO CAMPING a children’s book by Elizabeth Laird (story-telling) with pictures by Carolyn Scrace – i was looking for a multi-culturally appropriate book for children and families in recent months AND have happened to read this aloud quite a few times and only just realising YESterday that would have met that brief all the time! (blinded for cognitive difficulties with neuro-condition, lifelong, but not visually impaired myself mostly, or at least it doesn’t count the same ways for obvious (and good) reasons. 9i still have the cover somewhere but it fell off a long time agao, a fave book with all kids and us adults too 🙂
  2. Spelling & Punctuation – my son’s old well used workbook from early junior home ed/supporting school effforts times, kept for reference to make our own worksheet activities, ie. making up our own tasks, guided by this good book we paid full 99p price for AND similar pricing in shops all these years after (until they succeed in their plan, whoever the roguiermen might be that would inflate populations prices although they go for like 1500% on bread and 700% on a bag of rice if 2011 was to be believed! off track again! Soz.
  3. Chinese Painting – purchased from a BBC Children in Need charity basket, paid more than the asking price of course, becasue a 25p bargain when i could scrape more didn’t seem a fair price at the time. There are some eye-opening experiences to behold in this amazing and somehow devastating book. My A to Z challenge theme reveal requires me to flick through some of my personal art books to find extra inspiration and I haven’t yet, a while since I read it, but thank goodness it was available to hand!
  4.  Eastern Wisdom A special and treasured prize from a disability support group I intended while a disabled volunteer helper, at our nearest local library (- ours got demolished and locality being ruined by some kind of not so bad insurgencies or dreadful shit ahead alike anywhere else might have had – or just paranoia with all the news reels and soc-med influences (- and I barely see or hear any)!)

Before I dash… don’t forget, even personal bloggers would be well advised, if not already well prepared in advance, to keep a blog security plan in mind. Not because the providers are to blame or at fault, but because it’s a really good idea and we’re all a bit behind the times here in the UK p’raps. Cheers 🙂

screenshot of my laptop screen showing music files playing at the time of making this post and captured as a photograph for reference of the moment, considering blog security planning etc

camera to hand at all times (puter crashes etc, or reference to good music etc, etc…

I’ll have to check again for typo or oa-fY intrusions when the AI gremlins go yabbadabbadoozzzeee again for not enough {Ai} {hugs} …~~

  1. Good post! Quick question though: What types of security plans would you recommend?

  2. Apart from using licensed software and usual online safeguarding, I try to remember to print the content in my draft copy in my dashboard, take screenshots of how my stuff appears, have camera immediately to hand to take a photo of the screen during crashes (perhaps caused by intrusion attempts) and be ready to switch off quick for immediate hard boot, check the wifi panel to see what other routers are being used for the geographical location pinpointing whatever the tech term for that is and noting new appearances of temporary mobile devices especially if mine shows as as pinging to it. I don’t know if you mean software application providers and I don’t know these days what ones might be best and I think I shouldn’t remove what was provided on my device packaged with the OS otherwise it might somehow affect it. But I guess these things, not a tech expert, by a long chalk. And I wouldn’t necessarily listen and heed advice from anyone who claims to be these days either 🙂
