On the theme of NE Victorian heritage, our recent uploads include two very different pieces of content, both with a local theme and both about craftsman: 

Down the Waggonway a short story by North Shields writer Ruth Henderson
Joiner Geordie is happy at his job making wooden rails for the coal trucks, but wife Maggie has other ideas...
150 a video trailer for a documentary by friend & mentor Jan Cawood of Tin Man Films celebrates the craftsmanship involved in restoring Great Britain's oldest working water-balanced cliff lift in readiness for Saltburn's 150th anniversary as a Victorian seaside town in 2011.
We are really pleased to bring you a selection of poems from Sheree Mack's first full length collection Family Album and an interview with the wonderfully effervescent Sheree.  See Sheree Mack's profile for links to her spoken word content.

We also bring you:

My latest drama and most ambitious project to date.  The idea came from a large stone fireplace and a noise heard in the middle of the night when I was staying in a holiday cottage on the Northumberland coast.  The drama Dolly's House is a supernatural thriller played by a cast of thousands (well 13 actually) plus musical accompaniment.  Recorded at Shipyard Studios in Newbrough during the one hot day of last Summer; in 6 short episodes it tells the story of Michelle in the aftermath of a traumatic stillbirth .  Thanks to members of the Wylam Amateur Dramatic Society, the Green Shoe Company and my own daughters for bringing so much to the production in terms of their acting and musical talents.

Friends I would like to introduce you to a Tech Guru, his name is George, his technical mind is brilliant in many fields, if you are a fan of technology then this is the site to visit.
George also produces many videos on U-TUBE, his expertise will enable you to master technology.

This is the link to George's Blog.


About George.

George is an expert in all things technical, his videos are entertaining, educational, and allow the reader the very meaning of technical issues, he will explain things in great detail, and from personal experience I can inform you that I have learned much from this young wizard.

A sample of George's work.

After briefly slipping into a bear market on Tuesday, markets have managed to dramatically climb back up. Today, the Nasdaq closed ahead 2.23%. Extreme volatility like this can mean many of your favorite stocks are susceptible to major swings. Today, I'm checking in on three storylines driving outsized gains in the technology sector.

Tech New No. 1: Riding the iPhone to profits
While investors weren't blown away by any new features in the iPhone 4S -- Apple traded down yesterday and lagged the market today -- the unveiling did bring about large gains in another area: component suppliers. The companies that provide components for the iPhone traded sharply up in the past couple of days.

Company | Component | Two-Day Gain
Cirrus Logic | Audio Chips | 12.2%
OmniVision | Camera Sensor | 34.1%
TriQuint | Radio Frequency | 17.5%

Why are these companies gaining? The most simple -- and likely -- explanation is that investors are betting that Apple will stick to previous iPhone 4 suppliers since the updated 4S is so similar in terms of hardware design. In OmniVision's case, comments and specs from Apple's iPhone 4S presentation helped fuel speculation it'd maintain its pole position providing camera sensors. Finally, the aggressive price points of iPhone 4 ($99 with a contract) and 3GS (free with contract) models means component suppliers already in those models can continue enjoying recurring revenue as budget minded consumers keep snapping them up
One word of caution, however: These are companies that are very volatile. Numerous Foolish analysts have advised buying component suppliers -- myself included -- but they're very volatile and usually trade up or down in excess of the market. In spite of huge gain in the past couple of days, these stocks are still only trading back to where they were a couple weeks ago.

Tech News No. 2: Buyout rumors are back!
A couple of buyout rumors drove two tech giants higher today:Micro-hoo back on the Horizon? Reuter reported that Microsoft is considering making another run at Yahoo! after its 2008 acquisition failed. Yahoo! shares immediately spiked and closed the day up 10%. However, there's another wrinkle to the story: After hours, there are conflicting reports that Microsoft isn't as interested as the Reuters report would lead investors to believe. That's led to an after-hours sell-off of 4%, so Yahoo! could open sharply lower again tomorrow if investors take a dimmer view of the Reuters report.Another company soaring today on M&A chatter was BlackBerry maker Research In Motion. The stock closed the day up over 12%. The surging share price follows rumors that global phone provider Vodafone, which owns 45% of Verizon Wireless, may be mauling a bid. I'll remain skeptical that a carrier would want to reach down and scoop Research In Motion up. BlackBerry models are tremendously popular in regions like England and India, where Vodafone has a strong presence, but it'd be difficult to justify any premium paid based on cost savings.

Tech New No. 3: Better cash management
Finally, after the market closed, Corning announced it'd be raising its dividend 50% and buying back up to $1.5 billion in common stock. Fellow Fool Anand Chokkavelu recently called out the company as the "1 Stock to Buy in October" based in large part on the company's ability to buy its stock back on the cheap and lure in dividend investors. Even after a 6% jump today, Corning still trades at a P/E just under 6, an attractive price for a company that has a dominant market position and a fortress-like balance sheet.

Raging Waters

Waltzing among the pleasant shore
Along the waters came high tide
In furious motion my blood did rise
As somber breaths unfurled

Ever so often a calm would come
And then I'd see my teardrops run
Looking beyond the clear blue sky
Along the waters came high tide

In furious motion my blood did rise
Looking beyond the clear blue sky
And then I'd see my teardrops run
Ever so often a calm would come

I stopped to watch the sunrise
Ever so often a calm would come
And then I'd see my teardrops run
Waltzing among the pleasant shore

Looking beyond the clear blue sky
Along the waters came high tide
In furious motion my blood did rise
As somber breaths unfurled

(dedicated to the victims of
devastating tornadoes)

JH also has a book published and is available from the link below, please support writers by visitng their blog.

Half Full & Aloha Friday Question!

"The man who makes everything that leads to happiness depends upon himself, and not upon other men, has adopted the very best plan for living happily. This is the man of moderation, the man of manly character and of wisdom." – Plato
Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eye Girl originally started in June 2009.  Now the it is hosted by Sprinkles atWyldechylde.  We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us. So by participating, we are deciding to see the glass as half full, instead of half empty. We are choosing to concentrate on the positives, instead of dwelling on the negatives. Our Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that. They are a list of the things in our life that have brought us happiness over the past week. We are determined to find the something good in every day. Are you?
"Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invisible host against difficulties." ~Helen Keller
For the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day. This week I'm Happy and Thankful for:
  • 3 Graduations this spring and summer to look forward to!!
  • my ability to see the lessons in adversities and trials.  
  • the love I always feel from my family and friends! :-)
"There’s simply no room for hatred in happiness. There is only love. Whenever possible, choose to forgive and forget." ~author unknown
It's also "ALOHA FRIDAY" Everyone!!  If you want to join in the fun? Post your own question on your blog and leave your link at the Aloha Friday post at An Island Life. Then you can visit the other participants if you wish...It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends or see what people are thinking about this week and join in a conversation or two if you like.
"Happiness is a state of mind. Not something you can buy in your favorite fashion outlet." ~author unknown
My question:  What is your favorite 'non-material' happiness? My answer:   Mine is Sunshine, Laughter and Love! 
"Love is trembling happiness." ~Kahlil Gibran
Have a Fabulous Friday and Wonderful Weekend, Everyone! Love & Hugs!
