And the foggy days persist. I even brushed this photo up otherwise you would hardly see anything. The animal in the background is a llama, not a normal Swiss farm animal, but there are a group of llamas stationed on this ground which belongs to one of our hospitals. The llamas are used for trecking excursions that you can partake in, in the local mountains. Not a bad idea, but not my sort of thing. I see them everytime we travel to the supermarket in a nearbye village.
Otherwise things continue as always. Today is bed linen change day, but Mr. Swiss takes care of most of the manual work. I just help by removing the sheets from my bed. Although a few years older than me, he seems to be more able to do such work. I suppose I could do it, but it would take twice as long as I no longer have the energy.
I noticed that WordPress have “improved” their reader, although whether it is an improvement or not I am still not sure. Some of you may not use the reader, but for me it is a way to discover what the others are doing and events to partake in. I am followed by many, but I also follow others. I may get an e-mail in my box to let me know what is going on in the big WordPress blogger world, but it is easier in the morning, whilst still in bed, to go throw the latest news on my iPad in the reader.
WordPress decided to save us time and have compressed the various articles in the reader for quicker and better reading. This is all very well. Instead of a long excerpt complete with a fully sized first photo, I now get a small stripe with a few words and all the photos in a row. I have become careful with criticism, because at the end of the road, no-one listens in any case. I can handle this new concise quick system, after all I am a golden cyber oldie. On the other hand, I do not want to be faster. When I switch into the reader I have been getting the various new blogs one after the other with a nice oversight of the main details. Now I get it crumpled into a smaller space with almost no text, but all the illustrations in a bigger size. I am also told it will be much easier for my telephone app.
Yes, well although I have the telephone app, I rarely use it. The print is too small and writing contributions on a mobile phone are almost impossible, especially if your do not have small active fingers. For this reason I basically never use the telephonr app. I look in on the iPad and computer. I used to like the old system where the spaces devoted to each colleague were easy reading. I am not quicker with this new economomic size, probably it takes more time for my 70 year old eyes to be able to concentrate.
As said, what is the point of saying anything. When I look at the notification about this new and wonderful arrangement by WordPress, I am confronted by remarks from users full of praise and enthusiasm. I decided I am no longer suited to this world, where everything is improved to make it faster and more efficient. I am just a slow moving golden oldie, that takes things one at a time, but as said, who am I to complain. I think I will have to make an appointment at the optician for eye glasses with a larger magnification to facilitate reading of this new and wonderful Reader app on WordPress.
And now to rest my eyes and neglect the computer until this afternoon, however I will be receiving short messages on my telephone throughout the day, keeping me in touch with WordPress developments, who needs an app?
Will be back later, must go, a vaccum cleaner and mop are awaiting me.
