Dismantled. Windmills Lasithi Plateau (Οροπέδιο Λασιθίου, Κρήτη) Crete

So it's almost Monday...sheesh that weekend slipped by in a flash. Saturday I had a trip up to London for a surprise birthday party. It was a surprise, the weather stayed fine, the people were lovely. All in all a very nice day, a long one with a couple of hours in each direction but very enjoyable. I arrived back to a little excitement, the offer of an interview....well lets not get too excited, I would be embarrassed to tell you what the job is and it is only an interview. In fact when I had another look at the job description I almost wept. If at 20 I could have seen that at 49 I was to end up at this place I swear I would have topped myself. So, included in the interview instructions is a questionnaire that I need to complete and return with me, here are those questions:

1. Can you use the shift and CTRL keys?
2. Can you move around the screen using the tab key?
3. Can you use the Num Lock key?
4. Do you know the different uses of single and double clicking with the mouse?
5. Do you know how to use the right mouse button?
6. Can you use the mouse to drag and drop items?
7. Can you copy and paste?
8. Can you identify different parts of the desktop eg icon, start button?
9. Can you move and re-size a window?
10. Can you use the taskbar to move between open windows?
11. Do you know how to use buttons to maximise, minimise, close and restore?

I nearly exploded cheeky bastards! I mean they should have gone the whole hog and made question one a multiple choice picture question with one of the pictures being a computer just to make sure I knew what one looked like! Of course this has just thrown me into some awful spiral of depression....what the fuck have I come to when I have to answer these questions and I won't even touch on the very detailed medical history that they want to know. I'm assuming that with that much detail there must be someone sat getting off over each applicants application. I could understand if I was applying for a brain surgeons job but hell what I have applied for could be done by an Amoeba.
Sunday I have been barely been able to speak.....you kinda wonder where this sort of shit will end.....if there were still work houses I would feel I was destined to live my latter years out in one. You gotta laugh right!?

Today's photo is another windmill shot! Sorry guys, a little different from the previous ones I think. This one is close to the Lasithi Plateau. In fact very close to my near death experience back in March...taken only a few days later when the sun was out! I have managed to find you an aerial shot of the windmills. You can see them in the centre of the shot. To view the Lasithi Plateau in all it's glory move the map up a bit or zoom out. I think that this piece of wood is what originally supported the sails and connected to the mill stone inside. At this particular location they have started to renovate a few of the windmills because this is quite a popular place with the tourists in season.

Tonight I'll be on that hill 'cause I can't stop,
I'll be on that hill with everything I got,
Lives on the line where dreams are found and lost,
I'll be there on time and I'll pay the cost,
For wanting things that can only be found
In the darkness on the edge of town.

Listening to: "Darkness on the Edge of Town" (Darkness on the Edge of Town) - Bruce Springsteen
