“Why don’t we do something new”

The question – asked in an unmistakable mother-in-law tone – hangs in the air for a while. We have our little biyearly  “discussion”again, since it is 2012, it’s time.

Empire Avenue – just a game?

{EAV:04f633dcc9bd47ad} “Just forget about this number. If you are on Avenue you know what it is, if not than come and find out” We all have the “homo ludens” in us, the only question is how can we control it. My interest in social media had been broadened lately, this way I get onto the…

My first publishing to Kindle

I had some “fun” last week since we were publishing an Amazon Kindle book. Those of you who have done that most probably just smiling because it is so easy. It looks easy from where I am now but a week ago – I was in pain. RTFM Everyone with some software or IT background…
