'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Menoloopal [men-oh-loo-pal]; the condition of being sent mental

...going to break the mould a wee bit today and go WHOOPEEE!  Two full months of blogging and it's going well.   Can't complain at the steady interest that is growing - particularly for MENO.  Gratifying and satisfying.

In the end, of course, it is just a visible journal.  Remember that Dear Reader.  YAM merely thinking aloud.  Sometimes crazy as a coot.  Sometimes not.

That's menopolyxinaemia for you.

Please continue to enjoy the roller-coaster with me.  The eagle-eyed and already-regulars will have noted a few changes on the page.  YAM's been tinkering.  Stretching her interwings.  Now you can read about -and see her - on Menothority.  Also, (more for my sake than yours) the Menoctionary page has finally been developed.

Further, I got down to adding labels.  This is a bit ad hoc to say the least.  However, now you can view all similarly themed articles in one hit.  In reverse order only though….   Hmm there's something I could menoloop about.  Would it really be that hard to give the option for oldest post first as is done in the blog listing?  Have I missed something somewhere?

If so let me know - that's what the comments boxes are for!

Got questions?  Ask away.

Got lost on the way to the mezzanine?  I recommend Google maps.

Need help with light bulb that blew?.......... have you been paying attention here?!!


  1. I remember my early months of blogging, when it was scary and exciting all at the same time.
    Actually, it was rather like the poem-a-day for April challenge, which is almost over. Thanks for your kind comments on my poems. I always enjoy them!
    And, back to your blog, keep it up. I love it!

  2. Gosh, two months already, Yam, how time flies when you;re enjoying yourself. :-) For me it's been two years and two months and I'm still enjoying every minute.

    The tinkering has made things much more readable for me with my poor sight, so many thanks.

  3. Oh geez, I thinks I will has to google all them big words you said...hehehe.
    I is just soooooo excited I finally founded you and can nows converse withs you through da bloggies now...I even emailed furiends trying to find you...hehehehe.

    Oh my - am meno'erwhelmed Y'all!!!
    Kay - your are welcome, I mean every word of it and yes - I get that the daily challenge is exactly that - however, it keeps one on the ball. My hat is doffed to you, ma'am!

    Perpetua - wow - the other day I was wondering if I would last another two months, never mind years! But it IS fun and already to have made so many wonderful connections is the best bit of all. Thanks for the feedback - will continue to tinker as the readability is of course the key matter!

    Puddles! YAM-aunty is a tad slow on the observables (menopolywhatsit) - just realised you joined the friends group!!! WILKOMEN. I envy your 'coot' having you. I can't have a 4-leg mate just now (keep a watchout for Canine Chronicles on MT-TOO), so am living through the eyes of others.

    I think it's called voyager bosem or summat.

    Oh dears, Blogger profiler didn't come up as an option - only Go Ogle. Now I have to find out howz to do that... or I can put it in at the top of my existing 'about' page.... anyhowz, am mega-delighted to receive the feedbax and I look forward to exchanging syllablz with you more often now!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty

  5. Blogging is rather addictive is it not!

    I do try to make my wordy post a little more the "few and far between" - but its a bit of a struggle at present. House painting! New School year. Busy at work. Sleep. All those kinds of things - am already about 800 words into the next wordy post!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
