Exactly! AND you could hire a nice young man BUTLER I meant butler to wake you up with a lovely hot cup of tea is the morning.


The other half might not be amused, though...

Yesterday I went out to feed the birds, the bird bath water was frozen solid, so I got a pair of pliers to break it, couldn't find a hammer. Managed to cut my hand on the ice, lots of blood, got a plaster, sorted ice, only to find the hose frozen, took the nossle off & icy water cascaded over me. Filled bird bath. Started to fill feeders & pinched my index finger in one, that bled too, another plaster, back to filling feeders, feet frozen, hands numb with cold, but the birds are happy.
Best wishes,
Tiff

So how are you on here now?

On my little acer netbook it has limpus lite installed, another form of linux which are all open source although ubuntu is one of the most popular, and they boot up really quickly compared to a window system,

I'm not that keen on windows 7 far less 8 I have had a new copy of win7 since it came out and it's still in the box much prefer XP I will get around to putting it on my desktop, W7 hides too much so you have to hunt for stuff you want to make changes to,I have it on my laptop.
