I exhaled a huge sigh of relief as I left the Police Station of Phuket, Thailand. I’d gotten off easy with a fine of $12 US, and a private payment of $90 US. That was all I had to pay for a traffic accident abroad.
It’s normal to accumulate stuff on our journey through life. Not only do we buy stuff, but our family, friends, career, interests and hobbies encourage us to get more stuff.
Do It Yourself, or DIY, is the latest craze for making or repairing anything and everything. DIY Projects are a set of instructions, guidelines, steps, tasks and so on, for making something.
We’ve all been there; suddenly stressed and needing a few minutes to calm down. But it is not easy, to find “space” for a time out when you’re with a group of people. This is especially true if you don’t want those around you to realize you are in an agitated state.

I have no idea why people my age are shying away from using social media when it is so easy to use, providing us with many great opportunities. This is especially true for us gals over 60.
