Penny for your thoughts.

Knew it would come one day. The budget handed down this week had the plan to discontinue the penny. Kinda sad but not a surprise, probably costs more to make it. It prompted me to think about a number of things, does the local penny candy store keep the same name and what about the prices? I’m sure some of their candy is actually a penny. They could print their own money, yer know a nickel for five penny candy store penny coupons perhaps. The other thing is the idea I had years ago to collect pennies one from every year. The problem I had was how to display it, it would have to be in a see through case like plexiglass so both sides could be seen. I’m off to see what’s available these days. As an alternate could design something and get the local glass place to make it perhaps, guaranteed it would cost more than a handful of pennies though I reckon.

Miscreants

Wow! 42 pam with an S in front, in one bleedin’ day! So far the WordPress software is keeping them at bay. But how long before the walls are breached is my worry. The curse of pam with an S in front is the Achilles heel of the internet and detracts from my enjoyment of it. This is a big part of the reason I use Gmail, it is very effective at dealing with it. If someone figures out how to stop pam with an S in front the world will beat a path to their door for sure.

Brighton Six Pointer

Really big game this weekend for Brighton & Hove Albion! Playing Middlesborough tomorrow at home. Both are on 62 points and in the playoff zone. In effect this is what they call a six pointer and probably will be one of the defining moments in Brighton’s season.

WordPress Thoughts

For the most part I’m pretty darn happy with the set up here and it’s working well. Slowly finding the answers to the odd question and mystery in the support and forum areas because as with most things someone somewhere has been there done that, just a matter of looking and reading. One niggly one was why the like button didn’t show up on the main entry page? Well, same for every theme apparently, shows up on the individual post page though so good enough I guess, at least it’s there. Another question I had was how much space I have, seems the pics etc have about 3Gigs so that’s pretty good and it said somewhere that I can blog without a real limit on the text part I think. Now I’m off to see if I can back blog, meaning can I write a post and date it into the past. This would mean I can populate it with my previous blogging from the different platforms I had going. I ended up here because I had a WordPress blog installed on my web space but it broke because they didn’t have the support for the newer versions etc etc.

Oldness

Thought this was poignant and kinda true, reminded me of an old saying I have…”I reckon God put me on this earth to accomplish a certain number of tasks, I’m so far behind now I’ll never die”.
