The garbled chatterings within may prove I have perfected the art of living in total chaos whilst surrounded by blissful tranquillity.

Coffee time.

So did I mention about me £4.99 BlackBerry?
You know how when the PC won't do what you want it to, you feel inclined to defenestrate it? Well I nearly did it to BB.
It'll be pilot error for sure, but knowing that doesn't help.
One of the reasons I got it was because the monthly tariff was half what I was paying. It did mean that I got only 100 minutes of calls instead of 300, but I rarely used 300 and I thought, if I am diligent and answer ALL my incoming, I shouldn't need to make so many outgoing.

Problem.
Somehow I've managed to set it to "Forward all calls" and the voicemail is picking up everything, immediately. Bugger.

I ransacked all the instruction info and found zip. I scoured the help menus and found zip. I went on line and found zip. I phoned tec help and got zip. I called the Virgin Mobile shop in town and even they couldn't help. For some reason I can't make the menu where you alter the setting do "Save" I fear I must grit my teeth, whats left of 'em, and travel far into the big town. I do not like doing this. Its all too busy busy busy for my liking. But I can't help but think that it'd take James at the VM shop less than two minutes to get the setting put right. He tried so hard and so often to talk me thru it, but it just wasn't happening for me. Still, we had a larf.

Whilst trawling thru all the folders trying to find something that looked like it might help I found something called "Status" or similar, and in it was a list of contacts with my 'device'. These contacts had titles, sometimes numbers sometimes letters. One recent one was entitled "Thick client" I had to laugh, and I'm still chuckling ;o)

Here you are Willie. Have a nice sunset from Cobbs Quay.  I'll see if I can get some new snaps for you over the weekend ;o)

Power and Glory

Wow! Che Bellezza....the photo is absolutely stunning.....it should be on a card of some sort, the colour is amazing, love it.
P.C's, mobile phones etc. l also get very lost, it's like the car, l know where to sit and drive it, and where to put the fuel.....and that's about it...if anything goes wrong, then l'm on the phone to someone, to get it fixed.
Never mind, lt'll soon be Christmas......AND talking of Christmas, l was in Debenhams this morning in Poole, and, yes, they had Christmas cards on sale.....how sad is that...very...!

This is an old Chinese Proverb....
Thought you might like it.......
If there be righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character there will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation.
When there is order in each nation, there will be peace in the world......!
Good eh! (:0
