About a bouncing tigger

Why am I a Bouncing Tigger?

Well, I was born in the Chinese year of the tiger.

For another my university nickname was Tigger ‘ cos I was bouncy. Or the girl with the hair – waist length, black, curly and thick – very. Now much shorter and blonde streaked! but still curly…

  • I hope to share my passions and joys and maybe I will bounce into a land new to you my reader,  that you can explore with me.
  • Come hop along with me and share your thoughts as we journey together.

If you like my blogs, do please re-blog, but let me know if you use any of my photos on a professional site.

Ps I have joined the Blogging university so you will see changes to this site as I learn more about blogging. I have already changed my theme to make it friendly to tablets and mobiles.

      Thank you so much for your comment, and I am glad that you can tell something about me from how I write. I am just moving across to a non-blogging wordpress site – for a while the two sites will run in parallel until I have the other properly set up, but take a look at http://www.tiggerreviews.com. I have tried to keep the two sites looking similar, but let me know what you think please. I am able to add some extra features as I go along – lots of widgets being available for this version. I am envying the pictures that someone has created on their blog for categorising book stories nd wondering how I can get similar…
      I have kept an eye on your site for a while and was surprised when I found I wasn’t actually a follower and decided I had better remedy this!

    Feminism in general, but with a primarily Canadian context in its effect upon our social organs. It’s influence here is far more pervasive than in the US.

    Sounds like the young princesses are surrounded by love. My youngest son plans to enter university next year in engineering.

      Thank you so much! that makes me very happy. 🙂
      I shall check out the nomination and ensure that I do what is required – just give me a couple of days as I am on a training course all tomorrow.. (and I’m about 6 days behind on the zerotohero challenge too!)

    I certainly wasn’t suggesting you were, obviously.

    If you’ve any interest in the topic, I found that the feminists who went to great lengths to harm my kids and me in the divorce had the same narcissistic personality traits that I observed in my ex-wife over 19 years.

    I recognized these same traits in books by academics who were critical of feminism.

    I’m suggesting in my forthcoming book that narcissism manifests differently in women than men, and that this hasn’t been properly recognized. Thus, the core of feminism today is not sincerely concerned with legitimate rights and equality, although it purports to be.

    You’re welcome to have a read of the manuscript if you’re ever interested. No cost, no strings attached. themirrorbooks@gmail.com

    Best wishes for you and your lovely three granddaughters.

      I guess it all depends on what you mean by feminism… There are certainly some fanatics out there! Interesting take on current views – US or UK or general? We (my daughter-in-law) and I are concerned about the current princess craze that the 2 oldest girls have – everything pink and skirts must flounce when they twirl… See the book ‘Cinderella ate my daughter’. But Dad grounds them with dinosaurs, train sets and lego – as he is an engineer and they play well with it quite creatively, even if they just build farms!

    I do hope that you can forgive the presence of a scoundrel here at your blog. I am actually starting to laugh.

    Due to a horrible divorce experience, I am on a mission to subject the feminist Matriarchy to unconditional and utter defeat. In my forthcoming book on my experience, I noted that I wasn’t aware when I got married that I was a Chinese (wood) snake, whereas my future narcissistic ex-wife to be was a Chinese tiger, a supposedly bad mix.

    I thus take it as a challenge to get you to renounce feminism. Snakes do enjoy cerebral challenges, or at least this one does.

    Best wishes and my thanks for your kind tolerance. This sense of humour does tend to get the best of me on occasion. }:-)>

      I have to stick up for women’s rights though as the grandmother of three little girls! One of my rights being to wear purple of course.. and btw not all tigers are narcissistic. I doubt I am.
