I kept thinking "I'll post later." Unfortunately, when later arrived it came with an upset stomach. Strange to say, when that was done, writing was not uppermost in my mind and I went to bed.
I have considered having timed-release posts, so that I'm working one day ahead. It seemed to take some of the sponteneity out of it... Food for thought, because if I don't plan to avoid a last minute hitch, I am allowing it to happen.
Belatedly (it's morning now) this is post 24 of 100 posts in 100 days.

No two snowflakes are alike. They're made of the same thing. In the mass they're pretty alike, but look closely and each is unique.

- Drivers need to be aware of an area larger than a foot beyond the front of their car. Really.
- Pedestrians may have right of way, but when crossing the side streets off major roads, it is kind to pause for a moment if there is a gap in the oncoming traffic so the cars turning in have a chance.
- Pay someone a sincere compliment every day. If you can't find anything worthy of a compliment you're not paying attention.
- If not now, when? Sometime often becomes never.
- Conserve energy. Don't defend yourself the next time you make a mistake and someone points it out to you.

- There won't be sausages for dinner unless I take them out of the freezer the night before, or in the morning before work.
- The time to buy Christmas presents is almost never on Christmas Eve.
- Post a local birthday card at least a day ahead (2 is better).
- Don't be late for meetings at work.
- Should I go see a movie and relax with friends, or have an early night at home and do some housework?
- Should I spend my holiday rushing about experiencing everything my destination has to offer (and having a wild time) or relaxing beside a pool not bothering with which country the pool is in?
- Do I hang out with my partner or kids, or do I spend time alone?
- How much time - and when - do your kids need you in order to feel connected to you and loved?
- How much time - and when - does your partner?
- Can you and your grannie on the other side of the country be satisfied with monthly phone calls?
- When will a disagreement with a loved one be helped by ignoring it, and when should we fight on until we reach a solution?
- What's the right time - if ever - to tell a friend we don't think their partner is good for them?

'It would be more dishonest to get information from women this way.''Dishonest?' he repeated.'Of course its dishonest, what I do. I'm taking advantage of people's innocence and betraying their trust. You want that not to be dishonest?''Is it more dishonest than breaking into someone's computer system,' he asked, although he thought that it was.She gave him a puzzled glance, as if amazed that he could ask such an obvious question. 'Of course it is, Dottore. Information systems are built to stop you from breaking in: people know you're going to do it or try to do it. So in a sense, they're warned, and they take precautions or they should. But when people tell you things in confidence or trust you with information they think you're not going to repeat, they have no defences.'
