Software for ADHD? Wow. Who knew!

29 12 2010

Well, okay, it’s not actually software so much as add-ons for your browser. These add-ons work within your browser to restrict access to web sites, web sites that you waste time on. Unfortunately, they’re only for browsers, nothing to stop you from playing games that stand alone on your system or wandering through past emails and endlessly forwarding jokes and chain mail to undeserving victims … but, I digress.

Merry Christmas

24 12 2010

A young man exploring the piano in my living room this morning has taken me back to a memory of the hall in the village where I grew up. The young man in question takes no lessons and will probably not be a pianist, but he has a knack for making the piano sound okay. He knows little about music but his sense of rhythm is okay. His count and measure are quirky though. And he is loud. Read the rest of this entry »

Ravens and Tamaracks and Me, the strange company I keep.

Sometimes ADHD keeps me from feeling like I belong.

Shake it up Baby, twist and shout …

La Belle Province is at it again …

Quebec is once again trying to stir up the rest of the country. This time it was an earth quake. It was felt all the way over here on Ontario’s west coast. Evacuations in Ottawa were of course mandatory, no government can continue to function in the face of a good excuse not to function. Read the rest of this entry »

The Shopping Cart Rule

23 06 2010

Those of you who know me well know that I don’t particularly like to go shopping. Once there and resigned to the task I usually engage and become amenable, even participatory, but I don’t look forward to it. Read the rest of this entry »
