      Hi Sue, great to hear from you, your absence was noted but understandable as life’s trivialities do tend to need attention. Good to know your PC has had a look at.
      We are well, at the moment I am doing arrangements for my eldest brothers funeral on Friday, 83 and had an interesting life.
      Kindest regards till next time.

        Ian, so sorry to hear of the loss of your brother. My thoughts are with you and your family Ian.
        Yes these technical issues hit us all thankfully I had backed up my poems to an external hard drive, other wise my smile may not have been so wide! 🙂 Other things I had to accept are lost for ever.. but that too is life and living, learning to let Go 🙂

          Thank you for your condolences Sue, this year certainly has been an eventful one for me,with other silent issues that I have had to cope with.
          Regarding back ups for the computer, I learnt many years back the need for back up, think I lost over one hundred poems with no record kept, such is life.
          Best wishes for a great weekend.

    This is the best description of a person I’ve read yet on an About page. 🙂

      Thanks Lois for that great comment, that’s the original description I wrote after checking out others About pages.
      I thought a direct honest summary was needed, that way every thing about me is up front.
      Thanks for taking the time to read and comment Lois, not many people bother with checking out the About Page.
      Kind regards and Best wishes.
      Ian aka Emu.

    I really like how your blog is so differently set out, it is one of a stand out blogs i have come across so far 🙂
    I am new here and trying to learn one or two things by visiting other blogs, would you mind checking out mine 😀

      Greetings my Friend, thank you for taking the time to visit and comment, I took time to go through the various themes that are on offer on Word press, also the Widgets that I needed to run the site, there are a number of combinations, the secret is to select one that actually conforms with your style of writing, I have checked your site and it is as good as many others, take your time and personalize your site with whatever you like.
      I look forward to following your site and progress in Word Press, I actually run two sites, Aussie Emu and Aussie Ian, because I have two different genres in my writing, you might like to visit my other site and compare the layout in both of them.
      Kind regards and Best wishes

    Hey there thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the energy in your writing, it seems like you have a great time. I can completely relate to karaoke nights, for the bar I go to, it is on Mondays. Good luck with your adventures, and I am looking forward to reading more of your work.

      Hi Steven, am enjoying what I am reading in your site, great advice and hints.
      I enjoy Karaoke but my wife thinks I might have overdone it in Chile, coming back from the Continental Ice shelf, drinking Whiskey with 120 million year old Ice, Elvis Presley Jailhouse rock sounded okay to me.

      Good evening Michiko, so lovely to receive your visit and comment.
      I do hope you are well and the weather is not bothering you too much.
      Very hot here in Mildura with temperatures in the 40s.
      The gardens definitely need a lot of water in this weather.
      It is best to water early in the morning or late at night.
      Best wishes for a beautiful Christmas.
      Kind regards.

    Hi Ian, I’m letting you know I tagged you in a blog photo challenge but I couldn’t link your site. There is no obligation but I thought you’d be good at this. I normally don’t participate but this has been fun. Anyway, here is the link: There are 5 in total and this is the 4th. Happy Friday, my friend…:)

      The weather is getting cold now, I suppose you are feeling the cold where you are too.

            Thanks my friend. It’s not picking up as I expected, there are not enough downloads though it’s free, you can spread the words among your friends. Thanks a lot for the support. Planning an app version for android.

      Good morning Eddie, great to have connected with you also.
      You have a very interesting site and blogs, I have perused some
      and still have more to catch up in my wordpress emails I see.
      I am a bit behind at the moment as I am putting the final touches
      to my poetry prior to sending them to a publisher.
