  1. Sounds like your weather has been a lot like ours. Historically dry. Coincidentally, we also have the possibility of rain in our forecast every day for the next 10 days. Party time!

    1. Party time indeed, I think all the ‘cockies’ will be running around their stations dressed in skin!

  2. And a lot warmer than our forecast!
    I just zoomed in on your header picture (I’m nosey) you have a very tidy desk Brian. Is that a monitor or an all in one computer? πŸ™‚

    1. Still pretty cool Sue, I like to keep it tidy, hangover from my clerical days. It’s an all in one type computer that I’d like to hurl through a window.

      It was bought because it was prettier (and a hell of a lot cheaper than the ASUS) than the ASUS all in one I wanted to replace my ASUS Laptop; and, being a firm believer in the old adage, which I coined yonks ago, ” ’tis better to be alive coward, than a dead hero”. πŸ‘Ώ

      1. I’m impressed with your organised desk. I lost my workspace when we reconfigured the house so I work at the kitchen table.

        Mine is also a white all-in-one, a Lenova, rather like glorified laptops aren’t they. It’s sits atop of a little set of drawers when not in use. My old PC had given up the ghost and my laptop was ageing. Last year I asked the IT contractors from my old school to find me a decent machine must be white and with good spec, and having worked with these guys for many years, they very kindly set the whole thing up and gave me a hefty discount.


  3. Time to dance in the rain and celebrate – and yes, it’s soooo cold. I’m actually running the gas heater at the mo’, and it’s OCTOBER!!! BTW my 8 year old laptop blew a motherboard last week, totally black screen. It was like a death in the family. I’ve replaced it since yesterday, having a lot of trouble with the keyboard. When the credit card bill cuts off πŸ™‚ I’ll buy some other bits and pieces such as a separate monitor and keyboard.

    1. Seems that alls not right in the world Gwen; you’ll note that Outback out in the outback hasn’t got anything to dance about yet.
      I’m thinking of getting those “‘geeks’ to the house” come look at my old laptop. was the best computer I ever had; and I’ve had quite a few. my mate Neill, you might have seen him here sometimes always suggesting we go for a drink; he got them to come and look at his old ASUS that I got him to buy few years back and it’s now as good as new. I think he prefers it to the 50 thousand $ Apple that he bought on a whim, which is always a problem when you’ve got too much money and not enough to spend it on.

      1. I spent $1k on my new laptop. My friend spent $500 on getting his existing computer upgraded. He’s ecstatic and says it’s flying. But at 8 years old, it wasn’t worth it for me to replace the motherboard. Also I’d worn all the letters off the keyboard, so Hubbie had no idea which keys to strike.
        I spent a bit more with my techie getting the hard drive out of the dead computer. He’d also spent ages with me on the telephone while I prevaricated about which laptop to buy. Overall, I can fix most routine things myself, so am happy to call in his expert attention when it gets beyond me.

        As for things wrong with the world, my agent didn’t think my novel was passing muster, and I didn’t want to make the changes she suggested. So we happily agreed that I am to start again and write it as non fiction memoir. Which is why the keyboard is all important!

    1. Have you just missed out Outback, or is it way off your neck of the woods? Looking at a bit of the news, where the talking heads were raving on, it gave the impression that it was every where. Where ’bouts are you Outback?


      1. North Queensland and out west of here.


    2. I’ve got a fair idea of what you mean; (I lived about 80/ 90 km in from Port Hedland , in the Sandy for quite a while.Place called Shay gap. Did a few posts about that few years back


  5. I suspect that we can expect some rain over the weekend!


    1. That will be a novelty for you I’d imagine πŸ‘Ώ

    1. It is Carolyn, it’s perfect, and it’s going to keep up for the next seven days at least, according to today’s 7 day forecast at least. πŸ˜€
      No problem keeping Coco safe, he hates the rain, he hates the wind and the sun, he is a very hard dog to please when it comes to weather,:P 😁 πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜…πŸΆ 🐾 🐩 😁 🐢🐾 πŸ»πŸ˜…πŸ» 🐻 😜

  7. Guess the live aboards in the marinas will be loving’ the outdoor shower – and be able to spiff up the ship a bit as a bonus.
    Rain as valuable as diamonds falling from the sky.
    (Oh, ASUS are supposed to be real workhorses of computers. We have gotten so dependent on them…do you think they know?)


    1. They’ll love it for 1, perhaps 2 days, but thereafter it will spoil their drinks on the aft deck before dinner.

      I love the ASUS had 3, I always think of them as the Rolls Royce of computers.
      I’m also very lucky, the ASUS depot is about 20 minutes drive from where I live, and the men there gave me the phone number to call them direct, I never have/had to speak to anybody in China, The Philippines, India, or where ever it is the call centres are located
