You’ve gotta love free entertainment.
I did it!
I finally found the right time and headspace to embark upon replacing my battery and hard drive. Armed with some clear online instructions that I viewed on my iPad, and a comprehensive toolkit, the job was done with precision and very little drama. I want to thank the egg carton for holding all those teensy screws I removed, and I want to bless whoever invented magnetic screwdriver fittings so that I could put all those teensy screws back where they belonged.
The new (and bigger) hard drive is now loaded with all my cherished stuff and will be soon finding a new home with my daughter who is desperate for a MacBook and is delighted to be getting a ‘Mum-refurbished’ Pro for her 30th birthday.
I shall very soon be treating myself to the latest MacBookPro with retina
CLOGGY:- Well Done Jen. I am always amazed myself when my computer works after I have done some mod to it.
~A big hooray for Mother Cusser who speaks common sense like it’s going out of style. Which it is, sadly.
She rips into the over-protected kids and the helicopter parents - and offers a comprehensive list of ways to avoid raising a generation of entitled little shits with no problem-solving skills or resilience.
Cloggo:- Great truths in what Mother Cusser says. Kids dare not leave home now. In the school holidays my mother never saw me from breakfast to teatime, I was like Tarzan living up trees in Gawber Woods.
Death Of A Battery.
CLOGGY: Crueler than Charlotte Corday’s knife
Oh hush. She’s doing the Plough Pose in the top paddock in an effort to make herself useful.
Cloggy:— Request from Piggy Smith. Will she come and help him plow his 40 Acre. ?? As much Old Horizontal as she can drink at the Mason’s Arms afterwards.
One can but hope.
Tomorrow it’s back to work / school for me, and my posts will decrease considerably. And considerately.
CLOGGY:- Too Bloody True
Television performers these days just aren’t what they used to be.
I defy anyone to strike an elegant pose on top of a flat screen tv.
Cloggy :— Very True. Our cat could go to sleep on top of ours, it would be hard put to to do it on the flatscreen we have now. On the other hand I have a job NOT going to sleep sat in FRONT of it.
The warm glow of a good book.
Cloggy:— and a cat to keep your feet warm
No mention of Jason Kenny (Team GB) breaking Chris Hoy’s Olympic record to qualify first then Channel 9?
You parochial fucks.
~ This is EXACTLY what I mean about Channel 9’s abysmal coverage of the Olympics. If it’s not about Australia they don’t report it.
I wish SBS had won the contract. Maybe then we’d see THE REST OF THE OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD AND THE OTHER INTERESTING EVENTS.
CLOGGO:— Thank God for the BBC here in England. We can see everbody in every event, even events we did not know existed, like double trap shooting. (We got a Gold). The Velodrome has been fantastic.
I once worked with a typist who had nails like those blades.
Thanks to Auspicious for link
Had to give Mason phenobarbital this morning since he desperately needs a nail trim. One would think that since he was dumped on the steps...
Mason was all doped up and we made it for our 9am appointment.
Another client was in the next exam room; she had arrived at 8:30,...
