Topsy: A Twitter Search Engine


Wow, it has been almost two months since my last post on this Blog. Time has gone by quickly as I have struggled to keep up with the demands of running a number of different Blogs and websites. In fact, I have done very little with many of them – just been too busy and too tired. Hopefully that will change a little now. I’m trying to become a little more disciplined with my time in order to allow myself to get on with the task of maintaining the various websites I own.

Today’s ‘daily’ is a website called ‘Topsy.’ Topsy is a search engine for Twitter posts or tweets as they are often called. If you would like to search Twitter for a particular topic or even a username, Topsy could be just the place you are looking for. I found it today and experimented a little with it – a very good little site I thought (for Twitter). Just another of the seemingly countless Twitter applications that are out there.

MY MONDAY MORNING – ONCE EVERY THREE WEEKS


 

OK – so this Blog is about posting a photo every day and the photo is to capture some aspect of my life/experience that I can share with others. Well, today’s photo provides something of an insight into what I do on a Monday morning at work, once every three weeks. 

100_1667I guess the task that has been photographed can be seen to be something terribly mundane and monotonous. However, it is part of my job and something that is essential in the operation of the retirement village in which I work. It is also plays an important part in providing (granted it is a small part, yet essential part) the overall experience that is living in the over 55s retirement resort at Tea Gardens Grange. It is another task that is taken care of for the people living in the village and adds to that terrific retirement experience that is Grange living at Tea Gardens.

 Is it mundane and boring? I guess it is a mundane task – it certainly isn’t a romantic task. Is it boring – not really. I have the opportunity of interacting with many of the residents as I go about my task, as well as interacting with other staff both involved in the same task or otherwise. Also, the surroundings in which I work are hardly oppressive in any sense whatsoever. So in short, it is a part of my job that needs to be done and is not a task I would describe as particularly burdensome. Sure, you can make it that way if you wish – but I do not find it that way at all.

So what is the task – collecting the garbage bins and delivering them to the garbage pick up location and then cleaning the bins afterwards.
