Grandma and the market place....

As promissed I'm showing you my latest layout today! I'm really happy that I've finally managed to finish a layout (since it's been ages hehe..).

This layout is about my little French grandma who used to go to the market every Saturday to sell her own vegetables, fruits, flowers, herbs etc... she did this almost her entire life (and so did her mom and grandma in the old days), when I was little I used to join her there as much as I could (while being in France). In 2005, when my grandpa got really sick, she had to decide to give this up entirely.. it was just not possible anymore to do all preparations and being away the whole days (since my grandpa helped her a lot too). Since then her life has been turned upside down.. she misses it so much.. just being away, having her friends and regular customers stopping by. This picture was taken on one of the last Saturdays that she spent on her spot at the market... so it's kinda special to me (and also to her, because this picture is hanging on her fridge for years now.,. hehe). I just HAD to create a layout about it..
Here's a better look at it...
I hope you're all having a great weekend until so far! Our weekend has started really well.. we've spent 2 days in a city called Middelburg. Besides enjoying the beautiful weather overhere in The Netherlands we've walked around to see all different historical monuments..and we also did some shopping for our US-trip in a few weeks!!! Totally relaxing!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I promiss to be a better blog-hopper soon.. I miss visiting your blogs so much!!

XOXO
Nancy

My friend and I were recently discussing about how involved with technology our daily lives have become. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.

Technology really is an inescapable aspect of our daily lives, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.

It's interesting to see just how permeant virtual memory has become in our every day lives. It seems like everywhere I turn, I see something with a card slot or USB port, lol. I guess it makes sense though, considering how much cheaper memory has become lately...

Ahhh, I shouldn't be moaning and groaning. I can't get by a single day without using my R4 / R4i!

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
