What Phone Apps Could you not Live Without?


A variety of Phone Apps we cannot live without, differ from person to person but what is the most popular?

Apps we cannot live without -really?

Well I have not done much reading so far this month, busy entertaining and making egg nog – and drinking it well laced with brandy, I prefer brandy to rum. Enough preambling..that sort of month so far for me! Any free time I have had this month I have done some internet trawling and of course spent some quality time on Pinterest ( love that site) getting ideas for Christmas.  One of the blogs I came across was from 2013 but I found the information interesting, all about the best five food apps a Canadian should have, now the five are:

  1. Eat Canada: Dining in Downtown Canada
  2. Whole Foods Market Recipes
  3. Parks Canada Heritage Gourmet
  4. Wine Picks & Pairings: Natalie MacLean
  5. MoodFood

Now the blogs explains them very well so I am not going too but I wanted to ask what foodie blogs do people use and why? My favourites of the above are the wine picks as I never know what to choose and moodfood as I just love that idea. I actually have not downloaded any as to be honest I don’t really use them. I have allrecipes app on my phone and that is enough. Mind you if I get a nice iPad for christmas then that could all change ( hint hint).  It also set me to wondering what apps do people put on their phones. Just phones for this exercise; I really only use mine for the normal, making calls texting, using Whats App (when it works!) and my Goodreads App, what could you not live without on your phone?? Let me know in the comments below.


In the mood for British Humour…

Equal Rites (Discworld, #3; Witches #1) Fabulous series of books.

Well I throughly enjoyed reading new novel last month, now onto some oldies but goodies. Are you like me get a mood on me for a certain read, sometimes a book, sometimes an author? Well I do; this month it has been Terry Pratchett, a wonderful humorous British author who unfortunately died early 2015. The wonderful man suffered from early onset Alzheimer’s which he called his ’embuggeration’. I love his Discworld series, actually starting with the third one in the series ‘Equal Rites‘ about a young witch saving the world. I love his tongue in cheek approach and his wonderful world filled with crazy and identifiable characters. Lucky me got for my birthday (from my every patient and understanding hubby), the Complete Collection of Discworld DVD’s– a collection of film adaptations of his books and they are great! The animations are not as good as the ones with David Jason in; my favourite is ‘Going Postal’. I love British Humour first saw David Jason during a visit to the UK in a long time series called Only Fools and Horses. In fact I am leaving this post today to have a bit of nostalgia as I have my coffee and watch some more of the series via You Tube.

Only Fools and Horses, BBC Series that run for a number of years. Full of British humour.
