Some changes in my life yesterday. I, yours truly, a confirmed non-user of phones, went and bought a new mobile phone. It's recharging its batteries as we speak. Isn't it beautiful! Much lighter than my old one. You know, the one which I normally keep hidden in a desk drawer, and only take out 10 - 15 times a year, when I have use for it. But far be it from me to give the number to anybody! Heavens no. I might get a phone call!

And here you find it in Spanish: MI NUEVO MOVÍL (Google)
¿Why in Spanish? you ask. Well, I changed the language of my computer to Spanish yesterday. Variatio delectat, as they said in the ancient Roman Empire. I don't want to be in a rut. People also say that if you keep your mind and brain busy, you avoid dementia. I don't know about that. - Don't know about what? - What? - Can't remember any more...
My computer speaks Spanish to me now. When I send an email, it reads "enviar" where it read "send" before. Sent is enviada, trash is now papelera, junk mail is no deseada and search is buscar. This is fun! Me gusta.
