When you change operating systems, when you get out of the clutches of Microsoft, Windows, Bill Gates and all the rest of the graspers, and when you move over to something as terribly complicated as "UBUNTU" (I'm only saying that to frighten you all away) so expensive that your Bank Manager is almost tempted to say "Good Morning" to you (UBUNTU is free) then you suddenly find what "surfing" - what Internet can actually be used for!
This particular little "blog entry" is using a thing called "Blog Entry" available via UBUNTU, like about 36,000 other little logicials and apps - all for free - of course!
If I live to a bi-centurial level (I hope for your sakes that this will not happen) I'll never use all of the things available.
But.......being of Scottish origins, I can tell you that it's a fantastic feeling - just knowing you can put two or more fingers up there - in the air......at certain things...!

Since this IS a trial, let me "try" it......here are a few links to other things that drip off my pen, sometimes off my mouth as well.......
Just click onto the links and see where you get whisked away to:
Gourmandises from ME....!

everybody should be serious - now and then...

I'm to be found on 'Facebook' as 'Ian Mitchell' and......
I've started using "Twitter" (mr le Marquis) much more, and you can be a part of it. On all my Websites you'll find, somewhere (generally at the top of the page) "Twitter Updates"- This gives you links to click on which will take you to interesting things....Try it!
