Trip to Bideford

It is lovely sunny here in Bideford. The sea gulls are squawking.

Playing with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10

My friends know what gadget freak I am. Dragon Naturally-Speaking allows you to speak into your computer. it is a vast improvement on earlier versions. But I can't see us all speaking into a computer's memory in the office, imagine how noisy it would be. I did have a bit of difficulty with this blog's post and probably could've typed more quickly but the software hasn't had a chance to get to know me yet. The instructions tell you to remember that your computer is not a person and that there is no point yelling out to it or speaking more slowly and something else I don't remember.I think we have got used to soundbites or "write" bites. Blog posts and e-mails are a lot shorter than documents and letters.

Edith Flack Ackley

Mum and I have just made a couple of dolls using the embroidery sewing machine. They have to be personalized but were quick to make.
