My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

POYNT - On a Device Near You!

Poynt is the award-winning, all-in-one, free local search App that connects consumers to businesses, retailers, movie theatres, restaurants, people, weather and local events, whenever and wherever they're needed.

With all the kids now back at school, time will be precious- and any timesaving applications are always welcomed!

This is a FANTASTIC  mobile app to meet the busy back to school rush that parents face- the application is called Poynt and is completely free!
 Poynt is a local search application which allows you to find businesses, restaurants, cinemas and events in your local area and will even provide directions to them for you.
 The Poynt app is ideal for busy parents for a number of reasons:

      cinemas, ice rinks, restaurants, etc   
      Search for local family events – fairs, fetes, bonfire night celebrations

      Poynt is completely free to use.

      events in the local area.
      Poynt is available in eight countries – USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany,   
      Spain, Italy and Australia and will shortly be available in India.

    the way – ideal if you are visiting a new location

Blackberry Playbook
         Allows you to pair your Blackberry device with the Playbook to add people to 
   your contacts and calendar

I decided to put the Poynt Application to the test last week when I was searching the local area for activities for my 2 year old daughter. I opened the application, and once it had searched my current location, it took me to an attractive menu screen which offered me 4 options: Businesses, Events, Restaurants and Movies, as well as displaying the local weather conditions and temperature. 

After selecting 'Businesses', I was taken to a Search Bar where I could enter my search words. When I typed 'Children's Centre' into the search bar, I was presented with a list of local results including their distance from my current location in kms. Above this list of results were 2 sponsored results selected by Thomson Local, both of which were reasonably nearby. On opening the business that seemed most suitable, I was given the address and telephone number of the children's centre, but also had the option to call them directly from the App, saving me from having to copy & paste the details. I was also given a Map and Directions information that would lead me straight to where I want to go. 

Poynt is easy and convenient to use and is great for finding locations in and around your local area (and beyond) which you may not have discovered before. And best of all, it's FREE! Give it a go and see in which direction this new App will POYNT you today!

    - Tình hình của dân chúng bây giờ như thế nào?

    Đoạn Vân lúc này hỏi đến dân chúng, nếu dân tâm không ổn, sẽ làm dân
    biến, như vậy cuộc sống của nữ hoàng lão bà mình tương lai sau này sẽ
    không tốt đẹp lắm.

    - Thiên Long thành coi như ổn định, bất quá vài thế lực ở địa phương
    khác đã rục rịch có hành động.

    Khoa Lí Lôn trả lời.

    Ngẫm nghĩ một lát, Đoạn Vân nhìn về phía Âu Đặc Tư. Vừa thấy ánh mắt
    Đoạn Vân, Âu Đặc Tư cung kính nói với Đoạn Vân:

    - Chủ nhân, có chuyện gì cứ phân phó.

    Cười nhẹ, Đoạn Vân nói:

    - Thiên Long, không có Thiên Long làm thủ hộ thần thú thì Thiên Long làm
    sao gọi là Thiên Long chính thức được chứ? Âu Đặc Tư, ngươi lập tức bay
    đi các đại thành thị ở Thiên Long, thi triển thần long thần uy cho Thiên
    Long tử dân thấy, cũng coi như là thi triển thần tích. Ngươi nói với bọn
    là ngươi là thủ hộ thần của Thiên Long, để dân chúng Thiên Long an tâm.
