In the UK, it's national poetry day,
The one day of the year when I can legally say,
I wrote some poems and put them in a book,
They're all here, if you want to take a look.


And now...

The poem of the day.


## That's Unbelievable

Some people say, "That's unbelievable"
About a thing that's quite achievable.

They mean they simply "can't imagine"
And that can be solved by taking action.

When we use our imagination,
Our dreams never go into stagnation.

Our hopes won't slip into hibernation.
They instead become our future foundation.

To build something no-one else has ever seen.
Except perhaps within a dream.

For them it was a glance in passing.
A moment fleeting, a shadow dashing.

For us it was it was forever lasting.
An idea forming and details blasting.

That thing that was before unreasonable,
Now becomes a thing quite teachable.

That thing that once was ours alone.
Can now be shared, and now be shown.

And when we help our imagination grow,
Where it will take us, we can't know.

Until we get there, then we'll see,
We've constructed a better reality.

Because that thing, once unbelieved,
Is now a thing we have achieved.


Many more poems can be found
In "There are Hats". The paper bound
book where verse outpours
and opens tiny imagination doors.

(it has illustrations too)…

PS: I wasn't kidding about the illustrations

My Markdown and CSV Data Table Editor tool can now generate random test data from a regex specification.…

#TestData #RandomData
The test data spec is a set of lines in a text area, and a number for How Many? rows to generate:

The data is rendered in a Data Grid using @ag_grid and this allows:

- filtering

The Observatron v0.9 now allows you to add simple text commentary as you test using a keyboard shortcut, this is logged as a json file with an optional screenshot e.g. "! menu should not look like that" would save it as a 'bug' note… #SoftwareTesting
