I am away from my blog so I thought I would share this post from August 2019.
How important is your birth family to you?
When I was younger my father and brothers were very close. Our father would spend time with us every day and we had a special bond. He was fond of reading and movies and we would see movies together. And he would take us to the library for books every week.
After his death, we, I and my brothers aren’t that close anymore but I do try to keep in touch with them all. Apparently it’s a male ego thing that if one of them doesn’t respond to the message or call from the other they won’t make a move to get in touch again unless the errant brother makes the move. I am not a man, so I overlook these codes and do call them off and on.
As to my own family, my husband kids and grand kids, I love them to bits. Nothing more to be said further.
What gets too much attention in the news?
Politics. And I am really sick of politics and politicians. Maybe if we sank them all into the ocean we would be better off.
If you could change 3 things about your country, what would you change?
Every one would have the right to live with dignity, a roof over the heads of all people and educating people about what we are doing to our planet is extremely bad. And that there are no second chances.
What fact amazes you every time you think of it?
Not to sound clichéd, I would say the human race still manages to amaze me. What lovely souls live among us and what amazing talent. If we look, really look we see all sort of fantastic tales of endurance and kindness around us. People are imperfect but ever so often we come across people with such a huge amount of courage that we are held spellbound.

He is forgotten by the people, left alone
Branded a felon, given a wide berth
His life wasn’t always like this or this hard
He used to be someone with a name and an address
Now he is at the bottom of the food chain
Eating food thrown away by the others
Existing at the fringe of this heartless society
He expects nothing from those he sees daily
There is no shelter from pouring rain or burning sun
From Monday to Sunday, week after week
He is never first in line always the last
This should not be his ending, we should make sure
Give his life a better caption, help him find his purpose again

Word of the day challenge;
I am pre-scheduling this post. I will be traveling to my home country, Pakistan today. It’s a long journey, will take me almost two days, home to home. Three flights and around 7000 miles, I will be going to the other side of the world, exactly. It’s a difference of 12 hours from here.
I hope to be online sometime on Saturday. But may try to catch up if I find an internet connection on any of the airports. But I will miss most of your posts and prompts in these two days. Some comments could go unanswered too. So please do understand.
I will be reposting a couple of posts for the coming days so that you don’t miss me, 😛!
Hope to see you all on the other side. Take care and stay safe.
Under this umbrella
In this lovely locale lived a fairy
She got this residence in inheritance
But changed it into something beautiful
With labor of love and her creativity
She saw her dreams fulfilled and visions coming to life
She led an adventurous life, full of lively escapades
There are many stories to tell in the coming days.

How helpful did you find the WordPress tutorials on blogging?
Okay, I will sound like a noob ( as my grandson is fond of saying) but I didn’t know that WordPress has tutorials!
Now that I have been told about them, I might check them out.
Did you contact the WordPress support staff (Happiness Engineers), if that was included in your plan, and what was your experience with them?
I did contact them a few times. Once regarding an issue with my plan and another time regarding the word-ads that I had on my site for a short time.
How was my experience?
The first time it was okay. They helped me with my paid plan selection and the help was given fairly promptly.
The second time with Word-ads, they were a bit lackadaisical and not very quick. When I discontinued the Word-ads for a while, they didn’t even respond to my request of starting them again on my site. So I would rate them a middling 4-5. Not great but not the worse customer support ever seen.
Thank you Tanya for this wonderful series.
