Being away from home means I am using Internet cafes or the local library to catch up on all those 'important' things. Banking can be done on the phone and also keeping in touch with the family but I like using the keyboard (makes me feel less guilty about not writing in the latter case lol) so I pop in every few days and sit alongside various other people who also frequent these places.
Lots of youngsters at my favourite cafe - there are backpackers galore in this part of Queensland (Bowen), they work in the local fruit and veg and fishing industries picking and the like making cash to be able to move on and see more of Australia.
Of course the other generation sitting here are all the oldies - the grey nomads - who move up from southern states to spend the winter in the sun lol
Anyway you don't actually look at what is on their screens - not good etiquette - but sometimes you can't help but see whats there - and imagine - and I'm not sure why I should be surprised - 2 days in a row I've seen Rhonda Jean's face looking out at me lol
I'd checked in on her earlier so knew what the page looked like on those days. Today amongst other bits and pieces she is talking about the dog biscuit recipe she uses, look at the samples she has on the plate and see the dog shaped one:))
To me the really awesome thing in my mind when I glanced at the users was that these weren't older readers either - in fact one was really quite young, more like a teenager. I'm not suggesting Down to Earth would have a certain type of reader but that at long last there is a voice out there that is being heard.
Have to go - the water and lovely sandy Queens Beach is calling.
