Arrrrgh, what arrogance to call me when I’m playing cyber-games! Nevertheless did she activate the transmitter that her processor had used to ring.
What, she barked in her head causing the receiver at the other end to flinch in pain. But her assistant knew that his boss would love this message and bravely replied with an unmistakable you better get here quick.
Well, that’s what she was waiting for. She immediately understood and raced to her body to teleport herself to the archaeological dig-out she was operating in the no-where of never never Australia.
In no time did she arrive where her workers in still ageing dirty bodies were pressure-blasting clay downhill and exposing a row of dwellings, houses is, what they used to be called. She had known it would be an easy dig, plenty of water from the ocean not far away, the ground had…

What a lovely and joyous event admidst the spooky time of Halloween ! In the last few weeks I was nominated three times by the following dear bloggers for the ‘One Lovely Blog’ award ::
First I must apologize that I have waited so long to accept the award properly. I am so thankful to these three bloggers and would like to continue the tradition of passing the awards around because they do help us to project attention to a diversity of many bloggers on this huge site of WordPress.
I like Linda’s comment on the ‘One Lovely Blog’ awared>>
The history of the One Lovely Blog Award is that “nominations are chosen by fellow bloggers for those newer and up-and-coming bloggers. The goal is to help give recognition and also to help the new blogger to reach more viewers. It also recognizes blogs that are considered to be “lovely” by the fellow bloggers who choose them. This award recognizes bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with viewers and followers” (as written by The sound of summer on 10/12/2014).
In order to “accept” the award, the nominated blogger must follow these guidelines:
* Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
* Add the One Lovely Blog logo to your post.
* Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.
* Nominate about 15 bloggers you admire and inform nominees by commenting on their blog.
I made my selection by observing the outer and inner charm and beauty of my nominations and again ask for understanding that the list is shorter than recommended ::
Please visit the links by my nominants as well as my nominations they are all full of interesting contributions and surprises.
7 facts about myself::
– I have the best dog in the world, she can heal people and other dogs and she is a cat-whisperer also
– Chocolate, chocolate ice-cream, chocolate cake, hot chocolate, iced-chocolate, any sort of chocolate are very loved by me – but do not eat too much of it
– I’m a bad cook. If I do not burn the food, then for sure I put too much salt on it.
– I loooooove to dance – alone or do the tango with someone
– I travel a lot and like to mix with other cultures (only the good habits of course)
– I’ve just broken my friends coffee jug this morning, so that will bring me good luck according to the saying “shards bring luck” (Scherben bringen Glück)
– One of my bad habits is that I keep forgetting other people’s birthdays
Also I would like to take the opportunity to thank all my followers and visitors for your interest in my blog, for comments and interactions and for the ‘likes’

having been very new and puzzled when i started on WordPress only just a few weeks ago, i opened 2 blogs for two different ideas i was going to pursue. that has changed now since nothing is as i had imagined. that’s alright. but now i am that absorbed in this blog for the time being and wish the other one to rest in peace. before i do that i would like to transfer a story from there to here.
it was written in response to a Daily Prompt on ‘Soulful Machines; Machines, appliances, and gadgets sometimes feel like they have their own personalities — from quirky cars to dignified food processors. What’s the most “human” machine you own?’
who had spent all day advancing applications of cybernetic augmentations arrived back home and was not going to do anything but open her computer and enjoy herself for a while, maybe checking out the newest fashion. Mainly she wished to take her mind off Adam for a long time.
Megan did not wanted to think about anything much engaging at all for that matter. Just relax.
She let herself fall onto the lounge and reached for her laptop. And that was it. She was so tired that it took no time and her comfort zone already set the stage for reverie.
Yeah, there used to be a time before artificial lifeforms and computers in her life. Megan could still feel her surroundings at that time in France. She was younger then, living alone and she remembered so clearly when she used to tell her French acquaintances discussing matters of family and friends: I have a great family, its me, my car and my lawnmower.
The lawnmower then was a new addition to the family since Megan had moved into this little cottage beyond the edge of the city close to the alps. Until then, it used to be her and her car. That’s what city life and a career were all about, and the car was her best companion.
The lawnmower was tops, for a long time. so much freedom she would gain. More time to consider work and chasing boyfriends. Oh noh, she reflected, all the time I forgot to honour the washing machine! What would I ever have done without the washing machine!
Megan gave her superimposed kitchen a quick glance and saw her neglected toaster. An archaic piece that should have been saved for a museum. The stove was nearly as old. But other than that, there were not many gadgets in her life.
Oh, she lay deeper into the pillows and threw a quick glance over to Adam’s photograph.
She secretly wished Adam to be part of her family. But for now, it was the computer. And the printer, not to forget. Of course there was still the car and the lawnmower. There was also a boat now! No toaster anymore, though. These are all good friends of mine, Megan judged, and suddenly remembered her best old friend of all times: the sewing machine !
Apart from her father’s car and his watch, the Singer which her mother had bought after her fourth child, was Megan’s first and best friend from the world of machinery. Like a good good friend the sewing machine never left Megan’s side. Still today it would be somewhere in a dusty corner, hopefully ready to take up services again.
Oops, Megan thought, that second last picture, that is a time machine. The only other machine I would like to befriend.
