Bill and yall,

because of a breakdown of my Internet server Brenda and I have been off the Internet for 24 days!!! Only got back on this morning and it will take some time before I have caught up with NOAHs Arc. but I will eventually. My only comment is this 24 days put lockdown a very long way back in cruelty to Geriatrics.
Spent $59 on new Router (already had a workable Router, which did not work due to the problem finally being identified as my server not working), New i/MAC computer, $2,000, a Tech geek to come in and have a tweek at getting it going. This cost $158 per hour, what a waste of money!
OH! IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK ON THE INTERNET!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Stay safe and well all of you.

Arnie :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Arnie,

delighted to hear that you and Breda are well and as bitter and nasty as ever, where would we be if Arnie was happy :lol: :lol:

After 24 days, you should be completely de-toxed and able to smile at everybody like a green politician. But I see that your addiction goes much deeper than was feared. Now go and play with your old colt, while call the nice man in his white jacket. He has a pretty new pullover for you, with arms that tie together, at the back !!!

Don't think that an apple a day will keep the computer freak away, it took me years to adjust from windows and I still don't get it. When our son comes he has hours of fixing all the things that I have, apparently, screwed up, since his last visit :(.
As I see it, they update and change what I am used to :shock: then I'm lost in the desert :evil:.
Even Rahi gets annoyed at me for screaming at the bloody computer. If anyone were to walk past they would think I was killing her :shock: :shock:.
I have executed 7 computers in the days when I was less calm, getting old has its advantages. And the threat that I will never get another replacement if I break this one; it takes almost all the joy out of life.
Of course they are great when they do as they are told and have all of the apps and other crap functioning properly, but when just one link in the chain is wobbling it's an F'in nightmare.

John,

since when do we even start to believe what Frog Generals are saying, it's a 'ruse de guerre'. The war will never end as we are 'in fighting', us being Frog bastard offspring since 1066 :o :?

Bill,

luckily I still have my MS Lenovo computer, because when I got back on the Internet for the second time I switched on the Apple. going through the process of setting it up I noticed that the device was a 2019 model. I bought it on the 6th of April. Rubbish, I instantly thought, in the Tech world that is an antique. Tried to find a 'user manual' on the Lenovo, but during this process noticed that the model I was the proud owner of was no longer in the Catalogue of the shop I had bought it at. So a very unhappy Arnie went back to the store and asked to see the Manager and when he appeared, Arnie in a calm, measured voice informed him that I was a very dissatisfied customer. Cut a long story short, I get my new upgraded model computer next Tuesday. On show it is selling at $2725 dollars but that is not the price I will be paying. Oh! Happy days. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D.
Gee, it's great to be back talking to you all again. Happy, Happy, Happy.

Look after yourselves, stay safe and well.

Brenda and Arnie :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Good to know it was just the reverberations of Arnie's laughing. How about an update on your boom... or did you loose it with the duff High-Tech ?

Bill,

having trouble publishing my 'boom'. New enterprise for me and therefore am a novice. Send me your by P/M and I will try and send you a copy by memory stick.

You can do the onerous task of proof reading it :D :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:
