Yesterday I decided I needed one of those gravatar things. My initial choice was not particularly popular with my youngsters. I feel so fortunate to be able to readily ask the opinion of another generation, A generation who,have never known a world without internet, who can not understand how we survived without it. A generation who cannot countenance not having instant access to everything and everybody(actually that brings a few stories to mind about my family history research).
Well the verdict on my first gravatar was unflattering. They were much more responsive to my little hamster on a wheel. I hope that does not mean this is to become a permanent metaphor for my life. So hamster it is.
