Thanks, everyone! To top it all off, I submitted the final paper for my degree last night and it was approved today - only 31 years after I took my first university course. Not sure that a degree in Cybersecurity will do much for me at 57, but I'm happy to have finished what was interrupted by single parenthood all those years ago.

Planning? I work on a military base so we're way past the planning stage. ;)

I am just reading a newspaper article about a senior politician who has "squired" a young woman.

As soon as I read it, I was denouncing him as a pervert and demanding his immediate arrest and prosecution.

It was at that point that I realised I didn't actually know what the word meant.

A short investigation via Google reveals that it means simply to accompany or to go around with.

Okay, cancel the dawn raid.

Ben is glad that the weekend is here. And he bought a moka pot the other day.

Had a phone interview earlier today and it went very well. If I get the job it'll mean a $25,000 to $35,000 increase over my current salary. Fingers crossed.

I hope you get it, DaButt.

They say America is the land of opportunity - maybe this is yours!

I wish you the very best of luck!

Ben is praying that his coffee beans get delivered from the roaster this morning. He is struggling to drink the emergency coffee he has to hand.

It's not quite hippy yet, but approaching early Duran Duran.

You can't say that in the current climate!

But I am thinking of having some blonde highlights put through it.
