  1. Amazing how translations work and do not work, hahaha. Gives a new meaning to Manuel labor lol.

    • So very true on both points. How are you? How’s the job? All well I hope?

      Here we are having frosts, but for the last two days it has been sunny, which is very, very nice. Dreading the winter though, I dislike frost and loathe snow.

      My new Apple laptop arrived today and almost before it was out of the box I noticed a dent in the bottom of the case. I had just undone the cellophane stuff and there is was!

      Needless to say I wasn’t happy, Apple got an earful and I have to return the damn thing. I also got some money back, but I have a feeling not as much as if I had been in the states. Apple’s customer service is worse for us Europeans than for you guys, maybe they look down on us because we helped them secure such amazing tax dodging deals har ha.

      So I have to wait for 7-10 days for Shanghai to send another one, let’s hope that with this one at least I can unwrap it and use it before it dies on me.

      The one before the latest one lasted a whole two weeks before it died completely and lost a a half written script! I would buy a different cheaper computer if I could fathom out how to use Windies or whatever Microsoft call their latest disaster of an interface, but either it is incomprehensible or I am think – don’t comment on that please, I think I know, I just spelt thick with a ‘c’ in it! :0)

      Actually that Surface Pro looks rather nice and it is shiny but I would need someone to supervise me using it if I was to get one.

      How was Thanksgiving? I know you do a little cooking for the day, I remember drooling over last year’s menu and nearly getting on a flight to come over and enjoy the leftovers har ha.

      Speak to you soon.

      • We had a good size bird, gravy, green beans, mashed tatties, home made stuffing, cranberry sauce, and of course apple pie crumble and pumpkin pie. There were many people here this year.

        We tried to enjoy dinner as much as we could. We suffered a loss in the family, Thanksgiving morning. We made sure to focus on the positive of her life and how the suffering is over.

        I really hope the new laptop comes in perfect for you. I’m not too impressed with apples “care team” but I guess it’s better than dealing with micro squash. Was on the phone with them for two hours. The activation code they sent with my install disks was already used!! Someone in the warehouse decided they needed a key and got my disks out and used it. Anyhow, after two hours they realized oh you need a new key activation code. Well duh!

      • The meal sounds lovely, I sometimes cook Apple Crumble, don’t know if it is the same as yours but it’s nice, I also put Damsons in it, it makes it go rather red, great for Halloween.

        I’m sorry to hear of your loss, it’s never a good time to loose someone, my Mum died the day before my birthday and my youngest brother six days afterwards, these dates haunt you, which is bad enough but must be so much worse on a holiday.

        I had a word with the ‘care team’ and after demanding to speak to a supervisor they gave me some money off, but it’s what they call in the building trade the “buggeration” that is annoying. I really needed to use the damn thing this week and will look like a pillock carrying a desktop around… if I was silly enough to do that har ha.

        Your experience should have been compensated for, but probably have figured that if they compensated everyone for the errors etc., they make they wouldn’t have a $80 billion cash pile offshore would they!

        I did mention that next time I might buy a Surface Pro, sadly the prospect fills me with fear because Bill (Gates) and his team only copied the bad bits of the OS interface when they stole it from Apple and IBM (Apple pinched the good bits) and so I have no idea how to work the damn things. Lena is a programmer and shudders every time I try har ha.

        Have a better week.
