Like WordPress, Facebook is changing. There pages are being changed and from September they are closing their ‘classic’ version.
I feel like giving up. Social media takes up too much time anyway. This is ‘nudging’ me away from it….
Imagine, you have learned to drive on the left hand side of the road, you have always driven on the left. When you get to a roundabout you drive into it and go round it clockwise.
Now, suddenly, you are informed you have to drive on the right, drive counter clockwise round roundabouts. You have to drive at 70 miles an hour on minor roads, and 30 on motorways. No training! No question about what you might like. Imposed!
Thank you. Please change the rules for chess and monopoly too. That’s what you have. Power over us poor plebs who have no say in the matter!
Had an email this morning. Because my email is in someone else’s platform I have to download an app or something so it still works in a few weeks. Why? Because I’ve chosen to run the email address this way I’m not bombarded with adverts and junk. I don’t want to lose my email address so I guess I must comply. But it’s irritating. Why can’t they leave things alone. If you can’t email me soon you will know why!
This tree is going to have to come out. This was taken a couple of years ago. Since then we have had a lot of the branches cut back. Basically because it is too near the house and we are concerned the roots may affect the walls!
So we have spoken to the local wood turning group and they are happy to take the logs to turn into artistic objects.
I have already see birds carrying twigs around the garden so it needs doing soon.
New year, new threat of rent increases in the studios. Not by the cost of inflation, but possibly by 25% or more! Im not saying where I rent, and I’m not publishing this on FB. I’m just worried I won’t be able to afford it. The fear is that I will retreat back to home and have to give up my dream of being an artist. The increase would possibly mean people looking for cheaper alternatives.
The threat is not clear yet, some people are hoping for lower increases. Its just that its a blow for a little thriving community of creative people. I sometimes think that greed is at the bottom of everything. So frustrating.
