    And thus, this is why so many employees get royally pissed off when they receive their laptops or computers back and they are still crashing and burning as well as now their entire platform is reverted and they have to set it up again AND everything is just worse with no progress made.

    Laziness knows no bounds, and they claim it saves money.... mostly because they keep shoving the same problem down the throat of their employees and they don't realize they are losing money with so much wasted time when they could have just fixed it right the first time OR determined that there was clearly something faulty hardware wise causing the corruption or degradation over time that you simply cannot test for in 30 minutes.

    My FiOS service is down and will be down until Monday afternoon. It's the earliest a tech will be out here to replace the failed equipment (ONT).

    Until then, I'm using up my mobile data.

    I woke up and came downstairs to make a early morning drink... Just to find My Oven were switched on and apparently running through the night..

    For those who Know someone with either Dementia Or Alzheimer's will know how serious this can be...

    Looking after my 87 year old man is a challenge and a half. I do have a Gas Valve in place and were switched off. If not this could not be something I could be saying here now...

    Removed By Me.

    After watching this video footage scared the hell out of me..

    When my late grandma on my mother's side had alzheimer's my parents looked after her, and it was so hard they had to hire someone extra to help besides our maid, it is no easy task, that is for sure.

    Most days she kept forgetting who her own grand kids were.

    I've decided against going down to Botswana to visit my parents and some friends because of the heightened situation of alertness in the middle east right now, I'd rather not be a martyr in someone else's war.

    Hey there everyone.

    @MIG-31 , glad you weren't in any immediate danger when that cabinet (?) fell down.

    @Judas , feel better man. Glad it was a minor procedure.

    @Calliers , Botswana is the country north of South Africa. How are the events occurring in the Middle East affecting Botswana? I know of events in DRC, Congo, and South Sudan.

    To get to Botswana my plane would have to fly directly over the middle east, but I am going now since the holiday is in June, and things seem to have simmered down now, although I'll keep a watch on the news just to see what happens.

    Well since (above) when the shelving fell off the wall, left me no choice to redecorate.. And were badly needed..

    And as I think getting a little older as time goes by I think I am getting a little closer to the lazy side of home life..

    A nice little Black Out Blind..



    And as my tv is at a 45 degree angle from my bed is situated.. a little back rest to save wear and tear on the paper.

    I'm a little behind with the events, I'm glad that everyone is okay, especially Mig and Judas (I hope everything is going well post-op). :)
