Rest in peace Dad – 1948 to 1999.

It’s 12 years to the day when Dad passed away. There is not a day that goes by that we don’t think of him.

I have been listening to Queen lately and the song  “No one but you (Only the good die young)” always brings a tear to the eye.

A hand above the water
An angel reaching for the sky
Is it raining in Heaven –
Do you want us to cry ?

And everywhere the broken-hearted
On every lonely avenue
No-one could reach them
No-one but you

One by one
Only the Good die young
They’re only flying to close to the sun
And life goes on –
Without you…

Another tricky situation
I get to drowning in the Blues
And I find myself thinking
Well – what would you do ?

Yes! – it was such an operation
Forever paying every due
Hell, you made a sensation
(sensation)
You found a way through – and
(You found a way through)


One by one
Only the Good die young
They’re only flying to close to the sun
We’ll remember –
Forever…

And now the party must be over
I guess we’ll never understand
The sense of your leaving
Was it the way it was planned ?

And so we grace another table
And raise our glasses one more time
There’s a face at the window
And I ain’t never, never saying goodbye…

One by one
Only the Good die young
They’re only flying to close to the sun
Crying for nothing
Crying for no-one
No-one but you

What has Bowen been up to in the past two months?

It’s been a while since I updated this website with some news. Almost 2 months. 🙁  Anyway, that is not to say I am not blogging at all, far from it.

I started a new website called MyNokiaN900.com a couple of months ago, which I thought was a good idea considering I live and breathe this device.

In my opinion if you want a mini device that can make phone calls, text, navigate, surf the internet, listen to music, watch videos, analyze your sleep patterns, facebook, twitter, podcast, ebook reader, blog with qwerty keyboard, then the Nokia N900 is for you. Oh and it fits in your pocket. *

So I have been spending a lot of time getting the website up and running, getting it known to the world, publishing lots of posts and reviews on various applications and utilities. It is a lot of work but has been very rewarding. Do visit the site, if you have a few moments to spare.

OTHER IMPORTANT NEWS:

Our ten year wedding anniversary passed without any hiccups. To celebrate not killing each other for ten years we decided to spoil ourselves and visited the island of Jamaica, somewhere we had never been before. The weather was fabulous the whole time we were there averaging about 28C every day. It truly is paradise. Beautiful white sandy beaches, crystal clear warm sea water, plenty of tropical fish where ever you look.

We were only there for a week, but managed to chill out and relax with a little help from the spa. We spent the day either at the beach sun tanning, swimming, sailing, or in and around the massive swimming pools. The was a swim up bar and plenty of drinks with rum in it!
