  1. Congratulations on reaching extreme old age, have a very happy day.  Make it complete by dumping the new phone in the nearest bin and buying a very cheap model (less than £10) with which you can still make telephone calls without the hassle.  At your age, you might find it easier to operate.  I know I did.

      • For feck's sake!!  You'll have me wearing those thick bottle-bottom glasses next!  I refuse to kow tow to the vagaries of old age.

  2. I'm gonna have to email you on this one.

    Anyway, an early Happy Birthday and all from myself. Stay healthy and of sound mind. Yours is the only blog I visit these days ya' know. If you suddenly disappear one day then I might as well shut down the computer for good.

    Oh, and have fun with your new "smart" phone. Ain't birthdays a joy though?

    • I meant to leave a snarkey comment on your last post [about trolls] but when I went there it was gone.  It came back a while later though and I had forgotten what I was going to say.  I just went to find it again and once more it's missing.  I clicked on Home and there it was!  Stop messing me around!  [I think there may be a glitch in the feed or something]

      • Oh, bloody hell! (actually one of my favorite curses) It was my own idiocy.

        First, it took me 3 damn days to write the thing. I threw out my already busted back the snow storm before last and I could only sit at my computer desk for about ten minutes at a time. So I had to remember to hit "Save draft" and not "Publish" every time I added a bit. I forgot to do so just once and published the thing before it was done.

        Second, it took a few minutes before I realized my mistake. I only remembered when I saw that the "Publish" button had turned to "Update". I quickly turned the post back to "Draft" status hence it's first disappearance.

        Third, I meant to change the part of the title from "comment trolls" to "Internet trolls" before publishing since it's the more commonly accepted term for those idiotic ass hats. But I said to hell with it and changed it anyway after I published by mistake the first time hence the second "disappearance" from your RSS reader.

        Anyway, I published it for good yesterday afternoon–I think. I'm not sure about anything that happened during that time anymore. So please feel free to leave a snarky comment. The other ones who emailed me about the same thing you mentioned said it was a good post but didn't bother to leave their comments just in case it disappeared again.

        Can't say that I blame them any.

        By the way, this comment may disappear at any moment.

  3. Oh, by the way. I wonder, since it's your birthday and all and you've reached a new milestone in life (if I guess your age correctly), how about updating the old "About" page since a few things are out-of-date if you know what I mean. I figure on this particular birthday (if I guess your age correctly that is) it might be appropriate since you've reached age (that is, if I guessed it correctly) where the majority of folks these days probably think that you're out-of-date as well.

    Little do they know.

    Oh, and I fat-fingered the wrong email address into my previous comment hence the incorrect avatar. First time for everything and all that. Perhaps I'm out-of-date as well?

    • It's about time I updated that page all right.  Poor old Sandy!  It is somewhat dated…..  😐

      • I actually miss Sandy as well. Both mine and yours (especially her Snady posts). But I didn't mean to bring up any unhappy memories at all. Sorry about that.

        • As it happens, I was trawling through some photographs and came across a whole load of Sandy ones. Happy memories.  I still think of her a lot, but Penny makes sure I don't dwell!
