Me-now-views is the weekly 'less speak more peek' page where I share some of my background through pictures only.

G'day cobbers! 

Well, it turns out that the little internet dongle-unplugged thingo just has not the strength to help me post or read blogs from the home unit in which I am situated.  We can manage to drum through some HTML format emails together, but even that is a trauma some days.

This, then is getting posted from 'up the hill'.  I need to either walk, bus or get in the car to go to the top of one of the three surrounding hills in order to post or read blogs.

For TAKE and YAMandala I posted a bunch ahead of time when at Emm's place on Sunday.  This one is going to have take its chances…

SO THE UPSHOT IS - FOR NOW AND PROBABLY UNTIL THE CLOSE OF THE YEAR, I AM TAKING A "LINKY HOLIDAY".  Sorry folks, but there are other things which must take priorty.  Like getting shifted over to Scotland and finding a place to live and such.  Don't worry, I will catch on reading as and when I can and if transmission/battery life allows, you'll even see a comment or two coming through.  One thing I shall be doing my utmost to maintain, is regular posting, albeit through scheduling.

Regular spots will stay.  So for today's Less Speak More Peek, I am going sick-oh-delick!!!

Have a great week all!!

.....bit of a progression here...&*>

these last two are from Google of course...

The others are all my own originals which I have taken to the extremes with Windows Live Picture Gallery software.

A bit of fun to brighten the week.


  1. The pictures are great. You may need to save up a memory of those bright colours if returning to Scoltland in mid-winter...
    Look forward to hearing from you anyway, wherever and whenever you show up .
    All the best!

  2. Love those pictures you've colourized or whatever, Yam. I must try doing that.
    Wishing you the most bon of bon voyages, whither thou goest, and looking forward to finding out where you decide to nest in Scotland.
    Luv, Kay and Lindy

  3. Love the colours nice and bright.

  4. Hari OM
    Bertie/Gail - indeed!! Wait for it - the clothes will bring the sunshine...

    Kay - thank you and do have a play in whatever photo software you have - great fun!

    Merle - rainbow is my favourite &*>

  5. Been a bit absent lately, but trying to mend my ways. Hope your move to Scotland will be easy (enough). At least you speak the language, which should make it a bit easier!

    Good luck and will be waiting to see new posts if and when they arrive!

  6. Hi there - thank for dropping by even if you have unremarkable access.

    Come back when the signal is stronger!
