Technology as expensive as smartphones should have replaceable batteries and be easily repaired by the people who bought the device. When you also consider the environmental impact of producing a smartphone or other electronic device, it should be made to last. Apple/Silicon Valley turned electronics into disposable fashion products.

@Anke we have a fuchsia in full bloom in our garden here too (Central Scotland). It's very odd. They do bloom late, but I didn't think this late.
@minego Could you switch the cute critters bot to one post per day for a while? I need to get some other things in my life on track, and it's a bit much right now.
Watching TV while writing and in the show a steam train is waiting at a water tower in the middle of the night.
The sounds of the idling steam engine mixed in with night noises took me back 30 years to a overnight train ride in China.
A steam engine had stopped right next to my carriage and woke me at 2 in the morning with the roar of steam, the hissing of valves , the metallic pings and ticks of cooling steel...
The sounds of an iron dragon resting before taking flight again.
