And next year's words await another voice.
TS Eliot
Old Year and New Year by Christina Rossetti

New Year met me somewhat sad:
Old Year left me tired,
Stripped of favourite things I had
Baulked of much desired:
Yet further on my road to-day
God willing, further on my way.
Happy New Year

When you open a new website and you'll be asked if Cookies are allowed. What do you do? Do you allow? Do you have any idea what they will do with your permission?

Don't we too often agree without to think about it, because we want as fast as possible read the website.

I've never had a good feeling when I agreed so we should learn more about it.

The only thing I know by now is, that when I give permission the owner of the website can collect my interest on the seite, what kind of customer I am.

Perhaps you're better experienced in those things and you can tell us more abou it.

    I tend to just click 'yes' as it is just too tedious to go through exactly what you are saying yes to. Sometimes it seems you can bypass the request by clicking on the little x at the top right side of the box, but some sites make it impossible to enter without approving their cookies.

    I think it is unavoidable and it is the price to pay for having access to any website.
