    • I went to The TEch in San Jose while I was on holiday and saw a really interesting exhibition called Cyber Detectives. It was basically a fun and interactive exhibition about cyber security and the current threats - it dealt with most of the issues raised here on this article.
    • Two for a fiver : Stephen King, Cujo, always worth a second read and Charles Bukowski, Post Office, an author I haven't read yet
    • Meg, I had a cataract removed about three years ago and the operation part is very quick, the only annoyance for me was all the eye drops to use before and after the op, but the results of having the cataract removed were amazing, hadn't realized how bad the eyesight was in that eye.  Probably will have to have the other eye done at some time but not being bothered by it at the moment.   Enjoying this evening in a freshly vacuumed and dusted living room.  It was Anne's day to do my cleaning and she does a marvellous job.  She just turned 65 and suffered for many years with an alcoholic husband, not abusive, just drunk a lot of the time.  He passed away a couple of years ago and just last year she met up with an old friend and happily they fell in love and are getting married on Saturday.  I thought she'd want to take a break from her job before her wedding, and in her true Scottish fashion she said "I don't make a big fuss about things" although today she did say she was beginning to get a bit excited!  She's an absolute gem and a good friend, she deserves happiness.  Just wish Dave and I were fit enough to travel to the wedding.
