Mountain Mist Productions Bulletin

 



The Authors and Artists who are Members of Mountain Mist Productions have shared their artistic endeavours worldwide since the year 2000. We've had a little break and now we're working on getting going again.

 

Our old-fashioned Bulletin Board announces the latest updates from our Websites and Members. Oh, and occasionally there will be some drivel....

 

We now have way too much content for just one Site; we share what we do on a number of Websites. Please visit our Home Page and choose what interests you.

 

This is how we correspond:

Our Command Centre

 

We don't archive these posts so please

BOOKMARK us and check back often.

 

Refreshed every Monday evening AEST.

Rockhampton Time and Date

 

 

Social Media - We do not do any form of Social Media, in line with our "old-fashioned" theme. We would appreciate you letting us know of any issues. We report all spam and mischief. Please use the link above to report anything untoward and we will lodge a complaint to all relevant bodies or Authorities.

 

Comments - Not relevant - this is not a Blog. Our aim is to get people reading again and to make up their own minds about a few things. Hopefully then ideas and opinions will form in a respectful, "old-fashioned" way that is not dictated by the need for attention and socially questionable behaviour. Just read and then glide on by....

 

Free Graphics - Occasionally we will feature some graphics designed by us. Please do not direct link but right-hand click and save to a file on your own computer. A link back to www.1stmist.com would be most appreciated. The graphics will soon all be housed in the Artists' Studio in the township of Twyckwick.

 

Yes, we have an international mandate, but old habits die hard and so we do employ Australian spelling and vernacular. It all adds to the "flavour" and we are sure you will enjoy some of the unique characters once we get over to the island of Claver's Landing. And where is that?

Wow, the deeper I get into these changes the more I am liking the way it is going. No airs and graces once we get over to Twyckwick, just a level of honesty that will be all ours. Everyone will be more equal and free to be who they are and to do what they will. Let's cut to the chase, a lot of Authors and Artists become entangled in an egotistical mess by default and they see nothing wrong with that. OK if their work merits it but, sadly, I am seeing more and more stuff that is out there and to say it is of questionable quality is an understatement.

 

I am very proud of our people and some have gone on in the 18 years we have been going to become exceptional professionals in their fields. Others have been OK with just coasting along and enjoying the ride. What has been interesting though, for me at least, is that I have still been able to watch them develop as individuals, whether they are aware of it or not. Anyway, I'm not quite at the point where I can give too much away but let's just say it will be very different.

 

Interesting that the Oxford Dictionary has declared the word "toxic" to be the word that sums up this past year. I'd go along with that. Sad to think that "toxic" is the word of the year but if you are truly honest you'd have to agree that it is hard to come up with another more suitable word. Yes, we all know how stinky the world is and how people are even stinkier. Ah, but that is just how it is nowadays, right? And it all enhances our own development, doesn't it? And will we all be better people as a result? You answer those questions for yourselves. You all know me well enough now to know that I am sitting here in my office, feet up on the desk... and I call... baloney! There's a lot of work to do in the New Year and we are raring to go. How about you?

 

Well, it will soon be Thanksgiving, for those of you who celebrate it. There is some stuff up on the Ecard Site if you need it. I am not sure if there will be additional Graphics; I'll look closer to the time and put them up down the road.

 

Once again I thank the OpenClipArt people for helping me do the Free Graphic for this week-end. When I have time I'll seek out some more stuff that can be used in addition to our own work. Note I said, "I'll seek out", which means I am perfectly capable of sourcing material myself, thank you. All those little bods trolling this area and then sending us spam are going to be very successful... in turning me off your product. We like to help other businesses but there are ways and there are ways.

 

It is about that time of year when I do a check of software programs and either upgrade or purchase new ones. I always purchase programs because I know what it is like to be in business and to appreciate when someone helps you out. Be that as it may, I am very grateful to the OpenClipArt people as I am currently so busy, of course. The only other exception is the program used to build most of the Websites. This is a free program from the Developer (and no, it is definitely NOT Wordpress) that came about when our previous purchased program was superceded and they generously made this one available. And it works great! We're all in this together, don't forget. And no, everything is not for free. If it were none of us would be able to pay our bills or put food on the table. How easy it is to forget those little annoyances.

 

Having said that, this week I was admonished because we do too much for free for people. Well, once we get the new stuff up for sale someone might buy something one day. One day.... One is not going to hold one's breath and there is more to life than money and material possessions. There's L-I-F-E, for a start. And despite all the negativity, all the self-serving agrandissement and all the... lying, there is some pretty incredible stuff in there amongst all of the... other stuff.

Pet Friends

 

The Gang from Hannah's Column just made a donation to help out the animals affected by the California wildfires. We appreciate the UK's Daily Mail for their brutally honest article. Lovely to see the most generous donation by Sandra Bullock too - you can find the link to donate in the first paragraph of that article. Failing that, Go Here to donate.

 

The Gang from Hannah's Column will soon move to a special part of the Twyckwick Project. We have been requested to still keep the Column going on 1stmist.com though... and we will!

 

Still a lot of work to do with all the changes and we thank you for your patience. We'll get there!

I just read the update on the California fires. Sad doesn't even begin to evoke the feeling. Special thinkles for all those affected. If you have someone involved let them know you are there for them. Right-hand click on these and save to a file on your own computer. No idea what communications are like but anything you send will eventually reach them and in times like this every little thing counts. A lot.

I'll just refresh this and carry on down the road. Message from Adrian Rogers late this afternoon:

 

BOOK LAUNCH

 

Adrian Rogers' latest work, entitled The Medicine Wheel, has been released - Go here to read more and to purchase. The Book Launch planned for November 18th has had to be re-scheduled and will now be held early in 2019. Jennifer Sinclair will still be simultaneously launching her work. Details will be announced here when available.

 

His co-presenter is not feeling the best so they decided to re-schedule. Very wise as these things can be a little stressful and I am sure they will all cope beautifully after the Holidays.

Bookmark us and check back as you feel like it. The whole idea of us doing things the way we do is to teach some of our Visitors how to use the Internet and also to get people thinking and choosing what they deem to be of interest to them. A lot of our Supporters did not grow up with technology as a part of their lives and we would just like to make things a little easier for them. That will be a big Twyckwick® priority.

 

 

 

Report a problem Please report anything untoward.

We take a very dim view of spam.

We do not track our Visitors and we never share or sell any details.


If there is a problem, let us know and we will investigate immediately.
