Fun and Games.

Another day when I have been unable to get on to my blog or on to my e mails.   All sorts of strange messages have kept popping up on the screen telling me to press this or that or to reconnect this or that.  I understood very little of it - all I knew for sure was that I could not read or send an e mail, neither could I write a blog or read any of yours.   Frustration set in mid-afternoon when I resorted to sitting by the woodburner with the Times crossword.

I rang my tame computer engineer and asked him to ring me back.  Now, at 7pm, I switch on for one last time and find that everything is working totally normally.

The farmer is convinced (because he peered down a hole where two BT men were about to start working) that the problem is water which has now frozen and become ice.   It is certainly very cold here.   But, mine not to reason why.   For the time being I am up and running again.   Oh, and by the way, thanks for all those words of encouragement.

YAY! Not good about the frozen water, though.

Same thing happens with my TV. It goes off and I get messages on screen telling me to check my wires. I think it's because big trucks kept driving over the pavement for about a year before the yellow lines came. Or when there's thunder or an electrical storm in the area. But they're always digging up the road so that could be it too. We have to just live with it I'm afraid. I heard on the radio today that children in Finland are no longer to be taught to do joined-up writing, what used to be called handwriting. They are to start with keyboards and touchscreens. They will never learn to write with pen and paper.

Oh Gwil - your comment has ruined my day. How absolutely awful. Is this what the world is coming to?
Is this a sign that I am getting old and crotchety?

Of course, maybe Finnish parents will teach their kids to write before they go to school and not expect the State to do everything for them!

I taught my 3 to read and write; it only takes a few days!
