A heron stands watch over the waters below the spillway of the Lake Hume dam in Albury, New South Wales, Australia

The herdsman stands tall,
the flock grazes in the shallows;
A good day to dine.


Kicking Against the Pricks

No Way

From now on, it's Domi-no-ways, I'm never going back.
Takeaways and fast food should be convenient (at the least),and preferably tasty and perhaps even nutritious. Well, my latest experience at Dominos has left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
We rang our local Dominos ordered a couple of pizzas, one for the adults and one for the kids, along with garlic bread and a drink. I drove over to pick it up, about a 20-minute round trip. When I arrived home I discovered that they had screwed up the order and given me two pizzas for the adults and none for the kids.
We rang and were told that they could deliver the replacement pizza in about 40 minutes (perhaps more), or, if I could drive back and pick it up they would throw in an extra pizza and dessert. Back to the car I went. However, upon arriving at Dominos, I was only given the 1 replacement pizza. I rang home to confirm what had been ordered and was told to just come home with the pizza as the kids were really hungry.
So I left, unsatisfied and annoyed.
Never again, Dominos. Never again!

What's New? What's News?

I have finished a novella; 20,000 words with a target audience of young females. It's currently heading out and about, but finding either an agent or a publisher takes time. Stay tuned to see how it goes. And yes, I could publish it electronically on Smashwords, but this particular book suits hard copy publication.

And the other news is: I am teaching myself Dreamweaver.
