Flying a helicopter…

to and from…

…sounds like a good way to spend

one’s working hours, to me.

Driving a huskie team pulling tourists over

the Mendenhall Glacier also seemed neat.

firewall

1.  a wall or partition designed to inhibit or prevent the spread of fire.
2.  protect (a network or system) from unauthorized access with a firewall.

When I saw ‘firewall’ I thought of the second definition.

And I don’t know of any other way of

‘seeing’ the firewall in one’s computer.

For the first definition, I believe there is a thickness

of anti inflammable material between

the motor and cabin of all vehicles,

also known as a firewall.

The Woman in the Window

by

A J Finn

I am making, a little late I know, a New Financial Year resolution.  Beginning July 1st I firmly resolve to be more careful with books and authors I select to read!

The Woman in the Window by A J Finn is another of those books which I found neither enjoyable, entertaining or a page turner.  After reading page one, the only pages I wanted to turn were the covers.  Closed for ever and a day.

Fact is, from the moment I saw chapters headed as days and dates, the word “Diary” was screaming at me.

Six chapters in, and I had had enough .

One star and no more time wasted endeavouring to justify why I stopped reading.

If you really want to read The Woman in the Window, you may enjoy it.  But please consider borrowing it from your library before wasting money on a purchase you may regret.

I note that 239,000 Goodreads readers have rated The Woman in the Window as a three star read or better.  More than 110,000 readers rate it four stars.

I will be one of just over 4,000 readers who think it is one star material.

I am not sure if Hamurana Lodge fits

the bucolic theme of today.

However it is location on the

outskirts of Rotorua is ideal.

If this scene is not bucolic,

then I am not sure what is.
