Hi Mark,

It was the falling kitties one. Ok, I fully accept that no animal was harmed, but it's not very kind to drop cats from an upside down position. But lets leave it there. We both support your local cats charity, so we are on the same side at the end of the day :-)

Sorry Mark, I do not find that entertaining. Animals are not here for our experiment or amusement. You of all people should know that.

Should we duck behind a wall if we do?

But things like values, respect and trust can't be googled I'm afraid...

Exactly right, that is learned by practice and example, and role models. Just worrying that there seems to be less of that about as time progresses.

We take the wisdom from our elders:)

We should be able to. But the elders need to safeguard themselves from falling into the trap of "Wasn't like this in my day ..." and give advice that is relevant in the 21C. Just because it worked for you way back when, doesn't mean that it's any good now. I do try to bear that in mind.

But there are limits. You won't catch me going down the High Street giving a high five and saying "Hey Bruv, that's a well wicked pair of 110's innit!". Round my way that's 11 year old schoolgirls. Makes you think that some parents should have a licence to breed.

There's nothing I wouldn't do for my wife, and there's nothing she wouldn't do for me. So we've spent our lives doing nothing for each other.

Is it beer o'clock yet?

Sure was! In the 90's when I was into CB radio for a while, the skip was running one night and I got some guy from Denmark quite clearly in Southern England!

Absolutely James. A nurse in a hospital has a reasonable expectation that their patients will be cured by the time they are sent home. Patients aren't sent to hospices until the doctors decide that they are terminally ill, and nothing more can be done for them medically. The usual length of stay is about 2 months maximum. You would hardly get to know them before they are gone. And it is often the close relatives that need as much support and counseling as the patient. We have the princess Alice Hospice and St Raphaels Hospice in our area, and I have raised funds for both of them over the years.

Princess Alice

Well these days even a medium graphics card will outperform a Quad processor. In terms of RAC achieved per $ spent on electricity, cpu crunching just doesn't cost in any more. But to be fair, not all people crunch just for the RAC, and if the computer is being used for other tasks anyway, then you might as well do cpu work as not.

I've always left my old comps and computer junk by the front gate, it's always gone by the morning. Saves a trip to the dump! 2 weeks ago I left out two US Robotics 56K fax modems, complete with power adapters, cables, and original boxes. Some chap knocked on the door and said do you really not want them? I said I hadn't used them since my dial up days 15 years ago! He was well chuffed with them, gawd knows why???
