    Spare a thought for the poor lowly-paid Pooken Manor kitchen staff who need to be up in the dark 🕯 these crisp, early mornings getting the breakfasts ready for the clients. 🍚 🍞 🔪

      For any pooklet aunties (or fans)

      Jojo the pooklet’s wings have started their growth spurt. Last week they were tiny little flappy things. In the space of just a few days they have started to grow at a phenomenal rate.

      She is 8 weeks old (in 2 days time – to be precise).

      If, as I expect, they grow as fast her older brother Pickles’ did, she will be flying (when she wants to) in only 3-4 weeks.

    Hello.

    My name’s Kitty and I’ve been using Microsoft for 20 (?) years.

    Today I had printer troubles and followed their (Microsoft’s) instructions….. and expected them to work.

    (hangs head in shame)

      Is this your first time at an MSA meeting?

        Yes, I realised that I had a problem when I did this AGAIN, knowing what the result would be. I can’t do this alone.

          Welcome, sister. All of us feel your pain. We’ve all been there. And some of are still dependent on Microsoft, although others have managed to escape to Apple.

          (Unfortunately that seems to have finally made a couple of them gibbering wrecks.)

          Why, just last week I downloaded the Windows 10 installation tool, seeing my free upgrade from Win7 never free-upgraded, & ran it. After an eternity of self-checking & rooting thru my trusty Compaq Presario CQ61’s software innards – it began to install the Mighty10.

          And right near the end it suddenly bloody stopped & announced on screen: “Windows 10 is not compatible with your device” – “Your display will not work correctly”. 😡

            And we still don’t see that our behaviour will have these consequences and go on to do it again…..

        I really don’t know what you would expect from a CAT, bro.
