In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sliced Bread.”
I suppose sliced bread was a great invention in one way , personally I prefer a loaf of bread that I have to cut , it tastes better to me and I get to choose just how thick I desire it . Granted when my children were small and the days just did not have enough hours in them the sliced pan as we have named it here in Ireland was a speedy way to make sandwiches for school lunches etc. But the saying really has nothing at all to do with bread does it , maybe it did have originally but not now.
I love this little gadget called a camera because I just love to take photos especially of all the beautiful things we take for granted , sunsets, flowers , things that grow , my grand children’s smiles , lots and lots of things , maybe it is because I have a blog that I value it so much , because at least if I use my own photos I do not have to worry about referencing and all that . People that know me , realise I am usually in a hurry to get what I have to say down and silly things like commas and full stops take a little bit more time don’t they and referencing takes ages .
Essays in college were great , I loved writing my master pieces but all that referencing and quotation marks just slowed me down , but I know they are necessary in order for things and ideas to make sense.
Now here is the real reason that I think a camera not just my camera could really help out the student when adding their bibliography; why not just take a photo of the reference and have an app attach it to your essay , so glad I decided to take part in this daily post ,I have just unveiled a wonderful business idea , must tell my son about it before I forget it . My son is a whizz at all techie stuff and always on the look out for a great idea for an app , well now I have just discovered one . This app idea is the best thing since sliced bread don’t you think ?
