TopGuest App for Iphone!

25 Nov

Just thought I’d let you all know about another iPhone app that is fantastic!!

Topguest combines social media and traveling for the roaming nomad. When you create an account on Topguest, you also choose to connect to any number of location-based social media services. This includes Foursquare, Gowalla, Loopt, Brightkite, Yelp and Google Latitude. Topguest then flags check-ins at certain places and shows you how far away you are from gaining a reward.

You can download it here, this is the main company website.

Facebook Alternative has gone LIVE

24 Nov

A few months back FACEBOOK was ‘attacked’ because of ‘privacy issues’. . .

An open source alternative to Facebook – called Diaspora – has gone live.

The “privacy-aware” social network was founded earlier this year during a period when Facebook came under fire for its privacy settings.

The site is currently in BETA mode and they are not accepting open invitations as of now BUT, keep them in mind for the future! This could over-take facebook!

As a child, I didn’t watch much TV

24 Nov

First of all, I’m a mum. I let my kid watch TV. I don’t see the harm in it. Of course, I would never let him/herĀ  sit in front of the TV all day but, he/she does get 30minutes in the morning and 30minutes in the afternoon.

How do you feel about it?

I have researched alot on this subject and too much television has been linked to ADHD, OCD, Autism. So, what’s your view?

Does it? Is it detrimental to your child? Is it my responsibility to not let my kids watch TV?

I think 30minutes a day does no harm when they are young and when my kids are old enough to go to school, I will reward them with 30minutes TV a day IF and WHEN they finish their homework.

As a child, I didn’t sit and watch TV after school, I went out for walks, rode my bicycle and visited friends houses and played ‘teacher/pupil’ or ‘families’…On a Saturday, I was allowed to watch TV from 8 – 10am and that was it, I was sent outside to play. I’m glad that my parents did raise me that way, even now, I’m not a ‘TV’ person. I rarely sit down to watch anything. I have, of course, my favourites series which I would never miss, but I would never sit down at 5 in front of the TV and spend the night in front of it. That would drive me crazy. Instead, I go out with hubby shopping, go for walks, blog, read a book or listen to music.

Anyway, I’ve kind of gone off what I was talking about, what do you think?

Does TV do more damage than good?

A joke for the men…

24 Nov

WaRNING: This joke isn’t really for ladies at all, we’re just not that rude. LOL

The other day I needed to pay a visit to the public toilet, so I found a public toilet that had two cubicles.

One of the doors was locked. So I went into the other one, closed the door, dropped my trousers and sat down.

A voice came from the cubicle next to me: “Hello mate, how are you doing?”

Although I thought that it was a bit strange, I didn’t want to be rude, so I replied, “Not too bad, thanks.”

After a short pause, I heard the voice again. “So, what are you up to?”

Again I answered, somewhat reluctantly, “Just having a quick dump… How about yourself?”

The next thing I heard him say was, “Sorry, mate, I’ll have to call you back. I’ve got some knob in the cubicle next to me answering everything I say.”
