My laptop if off for repair so posts are being suspended whilst my machine is away, however ….
……Thank you all for reading my blog and for adding your comments in Facebook and on other sites.
I have been using the format of a joke 1 day , an article the next followed by a quote the day after , so that an article appears every third day.
As of 1st January, 2011 I will be reducing the amount of posts by 50% and only publishing a post every other day. This will allow me to focus my energies on a new project but in the meantime I have some questions for you:
What categories would you like to see?
- Stay with 1 Joke: 1 Article: 1 Quote (JAQ)?
- Something different?
- Something additional?
BUT … I do intend to step up the amount of ad hoc posts, which will be in addition to the planned posts – these are usually things that I read on web sites and would like to share and I will probably do this using http://aypee.amplify.com/
Thank you for your help. Have a great festive season and a fabulous new year!!

I recently posted the following video to my Facebook page:
This video has it all!
The video is the work of Matt Rogers, freelance graphics artist and web developer from Perth, Western Australia.
The content absorbs me. I am a coach and trainer who practices Neuro Linguistic Programming and I enjoy language!
a master of language and when he uses his skill, just like he does in this video, I am hooked!
NLP Practitioners are fully aware of the impact of Nominalisations (turning Verbs into Abstract Nouns). The trouble is that most people ‘label’ themselves with nominalisations, applying nominalisations to their lives –
– they say say things like: “I am a XYZ”. What they mean is that they have done XYZ, in the past.
This has them be stuck with an identity – trapped by their own words!
Matt is the creator of http://rogerscreations.com
Currently at Curtin University, just outside Perth, studying Urban and Regional Planning, Matt has always created websites and drawings and is using his web site to showcase how he has begun to take them more seriously.
His website “is here to show and symbolise that”.
Rogers Creations was created in August 2010 with the goal of creating and sharing high class designs and knowledge, with the aim of providing free web design advice and as a personal blog.
Matt says “I am looking forward to what this website will develop and evolve into and I hope that you join me for the ride”
For the Technically Minded
Matt is a big fan of Adobe Products and often uses Flash, After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop and Dreamweaver which are all available (except for Dreamweaver) in the Adobe Creative Suite.
Why does the video fascinate and absorb me so? –
– Because it has extremely high quality and (excuse me) because of the verbalisation of nouns – What that be then?
Excellent Job Matt!
