    @NAlberto I play bridge but I don't think that is the type of game you're referring to. :noidea:

            I fear computer games would suck me in and steal my soul as well as my time.
            Fortunately I´m not attracted -- the ones I see in the ads that intersperse news bulletins etc seem puerile
            Since it´s possible to advertise subliminally, I can imagine the advertising industry plays a major part in profiting from them.
            They´re not getting a chunk of me.

              I dont really know what online games are, maybe I would like them, I dont know.
              But at the moment I seem to have all sorts of things going through my mind that I need to do, the list appears to be endless.
              The brain says do it, the body says dont.

              Seems to be my biggest problem at the moment

                  When i get the time I like to play the music of The Carpenters and sing to them and I'm very good at it, did sing for someone who i knew that was doing a charity event.

                    I´m working on the ukulele version of this, hoping to duet with a guy who plays violin in my local.



                    I´m also hoping to get into some more percussive stuff, with a friend who plays the cajon, a drum you sit on ...

                    My double bass has a little shelf for your G&T and an ashtray ...
                    and I can lean on it when I get tired ...
