Troubles galore

My internet is giving big heaps of troubles. My ISP tells me that it could be a week before I’m back to normal. I’ve managed to get on for how long who knows? Might be an hour probably less.

My ISP is blaming the NBNΒ  The National Broadband Network, which we are now compelled to use, thanks to the idiots posing as a government in Canberra.

I’m blaming said idiots in Canberra for foisting this rubbish upon us.

Naturally I’m hoping to get back soon as I’ve got quite a big heap of stuff in the works and pictures, lots of pictures of grand daughters, by special request, that I’m going to hit y’all with saspo.

Should I crash, and be out for a week, as advised I’m planning on wasting my time, writing my rubbish on/in the word processor thingy and then bunging it on here.

Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye πŸ˜€ πŸ‘Ώ

By the bye I’m without cable TV so there is some good comes out of this disaster not that the War Office agrees


My Dad 01



That’s my dear ol’ dad, in the picture, been dead nigh on 40 years now and thought it’d make a nice change from my mug; and you know how I love to shove pictures of that at you 😈


and Ruby’s billy goat πŸ˜€

  1. Well one benefit is that I do not need to go onto your blog to read your posts, because they are being loaded onto my blog as a comment.


    1. Something crook in Tallarook damned if I know what’s going on, sometimes I’m getting notification of a post of yours but rarely. Just got notification about one where I see your off to the Mother Country I’m at a loss don’t know whether to scrub everything in your name and then try and sign in again see what happens


      1. Don’t worry too much about it. Going to England is just part of a story I’m writing. Give it a miss and wait for some photos of places around here – and birds.


        1. Aren’t you going there for real? I saw Mordreds invite so I took it as being dinkum


        2. No Brian, you have been away for quite a while and in that time I have been posting some of my fiction. The stories are written as if I was in them and I make the settings as real and true as I can.
          No I am not going to England. Not really.


        3. do you think I should go back to sleep? πŸ˜›


        4. I thought you had been.


  2. That’s your dad? At first glance I thought it was Ernest Borgnine. But now that I’ve looked at some Borgnine pics, not so much. A fine looking gentleman in any case.

    My deepest sympathy on your internet complications. I’d declare a national emergency if I lost both my computer and my tv.

    1. Who. Billy the goat of d.o.d? πŸ˜€
      I can live without TV, haven’t watched much at all lately, been reading lots of books from my lot, and the library, making the WO mad, so I;\’m thinking of getting extra from the library. πŸ‘Ώ


  3. Best of British luck with the internet!


    1. Needs a damned sight more than that Yvonne;
      You Okay? Haven’t seen much activity from the Myrtlefood/Bright/Yackandandah area of late,
      I know I know it’s Wangarratta, but I like the name of Yackandandah 😈 Hope you are well Yvonne πŸ˜€


  4. I am so sorry to hear about your problems with the Internet and the TV. I can manage temporarily without the Internet but would have serious withdrawal symptoms if I was unable to use my computer. I don’t mind using the word processor, I often use it before committing initial notes to WordPress. I find it helpful when the word I’m about to write that was on the top of my tongue a minute ago refuses to come into my head, saves me reaching for the dictionary/thesaurus.

    I don’t watch daytime TV but I like to have an hour or so before bed, helps to wind down etc.

    All the best with your Internet. Oh, I like the picture of your dad, very handsome! πŸ™‚

    1. My dad had violet eyes and the girls all loved him, he had the wickedest driest sense of humour ever, I did a post about that some years ago, He went stone deaf in his 60’s, Both of his parents were stone deaf.
      I can live without TV but not my ‘puter and Internet, I have plenty of books that I can always read again and again and ag………….

    1. Thanks Carolyn, seems to be going okay at the moment. I fiddled 🎻🎻🎻 around with all the wires and connections πŸ”ŒπŸŽ›πŸ”ŒπŸ–³ πŸ“‘πŸŽ›πŸ“‘ and stuff (Emilio knows all about stuff) and it’s seems to have fixed the problem, for now at any rate. 🍸🎈😊 πŸ˜…πŸ˜
      My dad was a very quite man with a wicked twinkle in his eyes, they were the most beautiful colour,violet, imaginable. The girls and ladies loved him. 😡😡
      Poor Ruby thought that Billy 🐐🐐was a Molly and named him that, she’s somewhat sad that he’s a boy. I’m going to do a post with BIG heaps of pictures of the girls and the goats and stuff, like Emilio 😊 🐻 😜

        Oh, I’ve never met anyone with violet eyes…my fav color! They say Elizabeth Taylor had that color eyes.

        Aw, on Billy. Yes, little girls seem to live girl animals, too. πŸ™‚

        You should do the BIG heaps of pictures

  8. Bro, You do go on with some twaddle don’t you!!! But at least I did get to see Rob’s lovely picture of dear old dad. He died 1981 by the way. C



    1. He died a few months before his last grandson,Nathan Sebastian, and the last hope of carry on the family name was born.
      As for the twaddle, my followers, seem to like it , which you’d see if you read their remarks, 😈

  9. Best of luck, Beari!! You KNOW I can relate to your computer problems!!


    1. Thanks GP, we all go through it at some time or other don’t we; so I’m not like the proverbial “little country shed”

    1. He was the gentlest, most honest of men, and the gentler sex just loved him, he died in his sleep, and when he did, Diogenes blew out his candle.

  11. If you hold your mouth just right and fiddle with the connections, maybe….
    My dad was always saying that “you’ve got to hold your mouth just right” when fixing stuff.
    Nice lookin’ dad in that photo. Looks like he had a sense of humor behind those glasses.
    Our internet required a bit of tending and muttering words over this past weekend, too…someone had to install one of those new Ring doorbells with camera which apparently started an argument with the router/network…always something…


    1. My dad had the driest, wickedest, sense of humour that I’ve ever come across. I did do a post on that some years ago. He was a very quiet man, I never once heard him raise his voice, and I don’t believe he ever got angry; if he did it was well concealed.
      Is there anything that doesn’t throw the Internet out? Anywhere? Methinks not! But I can’t live without it now. 😦

      At your request, I got my daughter to send pictures of my girls, and I’ve posted them πŸ˜€
