You never get over someone. You either love them or you never did.

A Child's Laughter

One of a kind this cheerful sound
A child's laughter wherever it's found
From the giggling of a baby in a playpen
To the laughter of a toddler again and again

It is easier to make a mistake in phtogoraphy than it is to make a mistake when writing. Somehow, photographic mistakes can be seen as 'creative'.

I still believe that Twitter and Facebook will dominate. Snapchat is definitely a contender but I am not sure about the others.
After years of domination by a few big names, social media is now expected to undergo some significant shifts and changes in the new year. Trends in this landscape come and go quickly, and major networks like Facebook and Twitter can have a difficult time meeting the ever-changing demands of their clients.

"Having children really changes your view on these things. We're born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It's been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much - if at all." ~ Steve Jobs

Commas

These are the four most common ways to use commas:

1. To list words:

We need cheese, bread, coffee and biscuits.

2. To distinguish a name from the rest of the sentence:

Tell me, Holly, why you were early today.

3. To enclose additional thoughts:

He was, without doubt, the worst boyfriend my daughter ever had.

4. To separate adjectives:

He owned an eclectic, colourful, interesting selection of books.

However, sometimes adjectives do not require commas. Have a look at these examples.

• Sarah's blue silk skirt.
If the adjectives are part of the same object (blue silk skirt) you don’t need commas.
• Sipho's beautiful, snobbish, dangerous girlfriend.
Where the adjectives are separate descriptions for an object / person (beautiful, snobbish, dangerous) you do need commas.

I recently went into a bookstore in Monte Casino and was impressed. Piped music, coffee bar downstairs and wine bar upstairs. A reader's dream. I could forget about time there.
