    Good Morning LB, Rubee and all to follow,
    Lily I hope all goes well with your OH’s appointment today🤞
    LB we have the same technique when faced with a technical problem, turn it off and try again. Did the printer ever concede defeat in the end and print for you? Lancashire hotpot lovely 😊 
    Morning Rubee, hope the weather is a bit kinder to you today it’s very wet here,
    Have a good day everyone.

    Morning, LB.  Would you mind if I didn't celebrate Lancashire?  Goes against the grain.  Still not forgiven them for winning at Bosworth 😉

    This leads me on from Lancashire to Lancaster and thence to Cumbria (  my morning mind wanders in mysterious ways ) and to wondering what happened to F'edge?  I do hope she's okay, and still managing to get her walking gear on and lead her groups.  She just seemed to disappear.
    Ditto Plant Pauper.

    All the best for a positive outcome with your OH's check-up today, Lily.

    That spider got away yet, LB?  Or is he still being poked and prodded into submission?  Boswell's currently in the sofa-hole.  It's very disconcerting, seeing two big amber eyes staring out from the blackness, and no visible cat.  Freaky.  He's just waiting to pounce on an unsuspecting sibling, little sod.  Makes a change from drowning beany-dolly in his water bowl though.

  • Morning.
    Thank you everyone. 
    Love the teddy pic LB.
    Take care, looks cold and damp out there again.

    Morning Ruby, Chive and M-U. Latest results Spider 1 - 0 Lily
    Chive I'm going to dismantle the printer and see if the feeder rollers need cleaning. I did a bit of research on printers last night and according to most reports I read, at six years of age my printer is actually 2 years older than printers are expected to last and it has done sterling service for me over the years. If it fails to work after my ministrations today then I will be looking for a new one.
    M-U the 'eyes in the sofa' is so funny. It has created a wonderful picture in my head. I need breakfast and getting clothes on now. By the way, I don't mind you not celebrating Lancashire. I live here now but it is not my county of birth.

    Good morning to all.

    LB, poor Lily, I don't like spiders so i cheer for her. Joyce explained me the term "hit the hay" yesterday", but don't worry, I were in bed already😂.

    SGL, finger crossed for you and OH today.

    Grey and windy morning here. Rain might start any minute. I think that my visit to cottage and garden is off.
    Have a good day and stay warm. See you later.

    Morning all - it’s dreich out there. More unmentionables today then some card writing. If it clears up I may gather more leaves.

    SGL - everything crossed for OH’s visit. 

    LB - I’d be really cross if a printer only lasted that long. Mine is at least 15 years old. When we bought it we wanted an All-in-One Printer / copier / scanner but we really needed it to be wireless. It was all new technology then and ours was the only domestic one on the market. Now they’re 10 a penny (Ante = found everywhere) and cost about a quarter of what we paid then.

    It’s like washing machines which are only supposed to be good for 10 years... Mine has just registered to vote in the forthcoming election😉

    I think companies who build quality products which are designed to be repaired rather than replaced so they last for years (the likes of Honda, AEG, Dualit etc) should be given an environmental tax break because it has to be the greener solution. Hate the ‘throwaway’ culture in society.

    Off my soap box now....

    Agreed T'Bird. My last printer was about 10 when it finally died the death. I too have an all in one wireless device which also does photographs and it has has been wonderful - until last night. I need to take a look at the feeder rollers now to see if they need cleaning - something I have never done before - so they could have paper dust on them which is preventing the pick up.

    Topbird I don't like the throwaway culture either.  Things should be made to last.  My vac is playing up at the moment which doesn't usually happen with all the bars lit up.  LB these printers can get scrambled and I hope you can rescue it.  My printer used to print off tester sheets slot and then gave up the ghost but was great when I first had it.  Chive I will be wrapping some of the c presents soon.  Lily fingers crossed for oh appointment.  Thinking of you both.  Topbird it's dreadful weather here too and misty.  Alfie is curled up beside me and is asleep.
